Our philosophy…

Re·la·tion·ship: rəˈlāSH(ə)nˌSHip/   the way in which two or more concepts, objects, or people are connected, or the state of being connected.

We believe in relationship… and connection.

For this reason, every wedding collection includes an engagement session. The engagement session is the perfect time for us to interact and get to know each other. It’s an opportunity for you to get comfortable with us and feel natural in front of our camera so that every photo we capture is real.

And more than that… the engagement session is a moment to step away from the stresses of life and wedding planning to connect with each other. Have fun, stare into each other’s eyes, laugh, and be in love.

Our couples become our friends and we wouldn’t want it any other way.

Tan·gi·ble: ˈtanjəb(ə)l/   perceptible by touch.

We believe in the tangible. In this fast-paced, digital world, we value having something to hold and keep and pass down.

As a little girl I (Danielle) loved going into my grandparent’s bedroom and looking at the photos on their dresser. The photos of  my grandpa when he was in the army, my grandma’s portrait from her younger years, and most of all, the photo from their wedding day. My grandma was a beauty and my grandpa still has that same sweet smile. They looked so happy and in love… I’m thankful for the 50 years they’ve spent committed to each other and the example they’ve set.

For this reason, we include “something printed” with every wedding collection. Our products are gorgeous and high quality. Imagine sitting around the table, showing your children and grandchildren someday and telling them the story of how you fell in love and the day you promised forever to each other.

Wedding Collections begin at $3,200

From the beginning, Danielle went above and beyond to make us feel valued and loved, not only as clients, but as friends.

Through our proposal, engagement photos, and wedding day, her unique perspective captured us in such a special way.

She was quick to catch the vision we had for each event and helped us navigate everything from the setting of our proposal to our wedding day schedule. We could not be more thankful for how Danielle blessed us leading up to our wedding day!  We will cherish our beautiful photos and memories forever!

When faced with the daunting task of selecting a wedding photographer, it is easy to become overwhelmed. It is tremendously difficult to select someone to perfectly document your special day who you can trust to be professional, enjoyable, and skillful while adding a personal touch to their work.

Thankfully, we experienced just that from Danielle Stewart Photography. Not only is Danielle a remarkably gifted artist, but she is one of the most warm and kind people we have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

We count ourselves very fortunate to have been able to spend our wedding day with her to capture each and every wonderful moment.

Jack & Ellynne

Planning a wedding is no easy task, we spent long hours picking out the venue, flowers, dresses, etc. . .  But when it came to choosing a photographer, there was no question in my mind that we wanted Danielle Stewart Photography.  When I first contacted Danielle about an engagement session she responded quickly and was so enthusiastic to meet with us.  Throughout our engagement she would call and text to ask questions and see how our days were going.  

She sent the most thoughtful surprise package, (who doesn’t love surprise mail?!) and over the course of 10 months she went from being our photographer to a cherished friend.  

Jack & Ellynne

On our wedding day she was the essence of poise and perfection, she and her assistant somehow managed to be everywhere all at once, snapping pictures of us, the wedding party, family, guests, and each special moment.  Even fighting a rotten cold Danielle stayed into the night to catch INCREDIBLE candids of the dance floor that will be pulled out at every family event for years.

Our photos are more than we could have expected, and will be deeply treasured for years to come. The easiest and best choice that we made was asking Danielle to be a part of our day.  

The time and effort she put into our wedding is unheard of, she is a treasure and we cannot thank her enough for beautifully capturing our forever.

We would love to invite you out to the farm and talk about your dream wedding.
