You believe weddings are all about fun and doing things your way
You think you are super awkward in photos, because I will totally get all that awkwardness out!
You obvi want beautiful portraits, but know that the heart of any wedding is in the candids
You are ok with a few f bombs on the wedding day
You don’t mind a photographer who WILL ask all of your bridesmaids to please take their black hair tie off…
You like yourself a bit of Schitt’s Creek (we’re gonna get along JUST fine)
(that rhyme is accidental and probably totally unauthorized but I’m sticking to it). Welcome to my little nook of the internet. I’m in charge of bringing the fun as your favorite wedding photographer in the Baltimore and Washington DC area.
Your wedding is going to be AWESOME – no two ways about it – so it stands to reason that you wanna vibe with the person you choose to photograph it. Seriously, you’re going to spend 8-10 hours with this person and trust them to perfectly understand that rock ‘n’ rhythm of the best day of your life. NO PRESSURE, KIDS.
Luckily, you’re gonna love me, I hope. I bring the fun in every conceivable way, using a tried-n-tested blend of cheekiness and natural photography to tell your story in the coolest way imaginable.
You’re related to royalty somewhere down the line
You or any member of your family belong to one or several country clubs
Your dad plays golf with at least one Kennedy descendent
You have a double-barrelled last name
One or more of your brothers is named Leopold
Your first dance will be to Tammy Wynette’s Stand By Your Man
Welcome, lords and ladies, to Ms Danielle Leigh’s formal wedding photography website. Please take your shoes off at the door, my butler will see to your coats.
Your wedding is going to be an occasion to remember, attended by the great and the good, the wise and the wealthy. Maybe the Governor’s coming, who knows? I have rubbed elbows with a few Senators myself. So it’s important that whomever you hire to be your camera operator for the day knows their place and is comfortable hob-nobbing with the cream of Maryland society. You can’t have any old raggamuffin off the street wielding their Canon like it’s a damn street festival, am I right?
Luckily, I know how to behave in company. I know everything there is to know about property prices in the area, I can hold my own in a conversation about golf, and have a pHD in small talk. I’ll allow for anywhere between 50 - 1000 group shots and will sit quietly in the corner while the toasts happen. Nobody wants a photo of themselves laughing to ruin the album.
The second we met Dani for our engagement photos it felt like we’d been friends forever. My now husband and I have always been a bit shy about having our picture taken but Dani made it SO FUN! And she’s incredibly talented. Our photos turned out more beautiful than I could ever have imagined.. and I know lots of people say that but I have friends, family, coworkers, random people who weren’t even at our wedding telling me almost every day how amazing the pictures turned out. Hire this woman. Weddings are stressful and she will help take the weight off and make you genuinely laugh and capture all the love and joy of your special day. Cheers friends!

She became our friend, as evidenced by my maid of honor saying on our wedding day, "your photographer is like your friend!" Since we hired she took the time to get to know us during calls and over social media. We love Dani and would hire her 1M times over, she was the best energy on our wedding day. Just to further evidence how great she is, everyone in our wedding party that was already married told us she was the best and some said they wished their photographers were more like her!
