Why I love Nestldown Weddings

I was born in the Santa Cruz Redwoods and they will forever hold a place in my heart. I love photographing in the redwood trees, the light, the magnitude, and the elegance all make my camera sing.

I married my best friend at Nestldown 11 years ago. Nestldown is one of my favorite places to visit in the Bay Area. Every year my family and I return to the venue to visit and show our kids.

Being outdoors is my happy place. I love photographing everything in nature. With over 100 weddings photographed at Nestldown I know the property well and create pictures that show off both the emotion of the day and the beauty of Nestldown.

My secret to photography

Words really don't do justice for what Danielle can do. The images speak for themselves. To express my gratitude for her work simply, is to say that it is magic. She has glittering eyes that truly see and capture the love and magic between two people.

I don't even know were to begin. Danielle was nothing short of completely amazing. She beyond exceeded our expectations. First off we had our engagement photos, TOTALLY in love with them, then our wedding photos blew us away. Danielle just has an eye for how to make everything come together so beautifully,  she's amazing at what she does. Not only was she our photographer but became one of my friends. We will definitely be using her in the future and couldn't recommend her enough. You won't regret it. Thanks again Danielle for capturing this amazing time in our lives!

Karan and Alicia

Her talent is just unbelievable! My husband and I were just married at Nestldown and she did our engagement and wedding photos. We are very very happy with our photos. They are beautiful and unique. We were specifically looking for work that would highlight nature and play with special lighting and keep us looking natural yet romantic. Danielle is very very good at doing all these things.
