Dani Elizabeth Photography

Dani Elizabeth Photography Wedding Photographer based in Raleigh, North Carolina serving the Southest and worldwide! Hey ya'll! I'm Danielle, momma to two awesome (and wild) little boys.

I can't think of a time in my life when I did not have a camera in my hands. However, I never planned to make a hobby my career. It wasn't until I was much older that I realized that my joy was found in photographing couples and weddings (and families when time allows.) I am devoted to and passionate about growing as a photographer and business owner every single day. I love my clients and the relationships that we form over the course of time we spend together planning for such a special day.

09/10/2021

I’ve been lucky (I guess you could say) that Covid has only prevented me from missing two of my couples weddings in the last year. To say that I was absolutely heartbroken and devastated both times would be an understatement. Anne & Josh originally planned their dream wedding in Savannah, GA last year. However, they decided to have a small “mini-mony” in beautiful Franklin, TN instead with hopes of celebrating all over again with all of their family and friends this September.

Three days before their wedding my oldest son tested positive for Covid. I called Anne in tears to let her know and it’s no surprise that she was so understanding and kind. She is honestly one of the most genuine and kind people I have ever met. And rather than being devastated or anxious, she met me with grace and reassured me that she trusted my judgement, which meant the world! Huge thank you to my fellow photographer and dear friend Ashly for stepping in for me.

Although I wasn’t able to be there in person, seeing the pure joy throughout Anne and Josh’s BIG wedding day makes me so happy and I am extremely honored to share these special moments with you all!

Getting married in 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣2️⃣!?

Once upon a time there was a weather girl who fell in love with a soldier… and despite planning a wedding which was postponed due to a global pandemic and a deployment… they lived Happily Ever After!

Ari & Kyle, I admire you both and have absolutely loved getting to know you two. It was such a joy being able to capture your wedding day and see you both surrounded by your loved ones to celebrate FINALLY.

Okay... okay. It's been a hot minute since I was able to catch my breath from the chaos of 2020. But here I am with a brand new blog post from Victoria & Cody's Engagement Session and I am so excited to be able to share these with you all! The boys tagged along to this session and ran around like wild animals. Carter even photobombed one of these pictures and I had to edit him out (don't worry, you'll never be able to guess which one 🤣)

So excited for this wedding in December at The Oaks at Salem and to be able to work with these two again. Congrats Victoria & Cody!

I got the news exactly one week from Kaylyn and Ryan's wedding day that I had Covid. In fact, one of the first things that popped into my head was how devastated I was that I was not going to be able to photograph their wedding. However, thanks so much to my Wedding Industry vendors and an amazing friend, Bud Johnson Photography for stepping in to save the day. Kaylyn and Ryan were so understanding and kind and I will never be able to thank them enough for trusting that I would be sure that they were taken care of. The four of us hopped on a Zoom meeting a few days before their wedding and I think we spent more time laughing and having fun than we did talking about the actual logistics of the day. Despite the hurdles that we had to jump through at a moments notice, their wedding day could not have been more perfect and I am so excited to be able to share a little sneak peek into their special day. Huge shout out to all of the amazing vendors:

Saturday was initially supposed to be a wedding in Savannah, Georgia for Annie and Josh. However, due to Covid restrictions, they were left with two choices: Wait until 2021 to have the wedding of their dreams, or make the best of the situation. Well.. I have to say that this intimate "minimony" in the beautiful town of Franklin, TN was an amazing idea. Surrounded by their family and closest friends, Annie & Josh said yes to forever with one another and in 2021 will be having a larger celebration. I am so proud of them and how they have handled everything. This day could not have been more perfect and I can't wait to celebrate again with them next year!

A little (Okay A LOT) of rain couldn't stop these two from radiating so much joy on their wedding day. These two met at a young age, knowing each other all through grade school. Nate finally got the courage to approach her in the 8th grade, and they have been inseparable ever since. Congrats to Hannah & Nate!

My most amazing ROTC Wellesley grad from FL was engaged to marry a West Point Grad from PA on December 30 at West Point. How does one capture the charm of a Southern wedding with the pomp and circumstance of a formal WP Wedding. You import Danielle and turn her loose. The wedding was phenomenal and Danielle captured it all--exceeding the wildest of expectations. Thank you Danielle!!!!!!
