Reviews from our clients and what exactly makes a Danielle Schury bride.

"Danielle was amazing! Her work is flawless, beautiful, and just wow!"

- kim m.

I promise you won’t be disappointed at all!! She is very professional and made working with her very easy, especially during such a crazy year! She’s so sweet and was honestly one of our favorite vendors throughout the whole process! I hope to use Danielles services during other milestones in our lives!

- jalissa r.

"Danielle is the best wedding photographer ever!"

She has a great eye for capturing breathtaking photos and you can tell how passionate she is about her work. She already had our sneak peak ready not even 2 days later with over 100 photos (how amazing is that!). If you are super awkward in front of the camera Danielle’s got your back!

- megan m.

"Danielle was absolutely perfect!"

She was so fun and easy to work with! I am not a natural in front of the camera; she made the process seem so comfortable and smooth! She has a great eye for capturing the best shots! We woke up just a day after wedding day and she already had a sneak peak of our photos ready for us. They are all completely stunning and I couldn't be happier with how they turned out!

"Obsessed with our photos!"

- kristie b.

I spent months researching and looking for the perfect wedding photographer, because pictures are important! I came across Danielle and was blown away. The quality of photos, the poses, the color schemes, everything! We had our engagement shoot last month and we’re beyond happy with the pictures. Danielle is extremely talented!!! She knows what she’s doing. I’m so excited for our wedding photos!

OUR PROCESS

HOW IT WORKS

Once my clients have chosen their dates, we will set up a phone consultation to chat wedding details and the process as well as going over key points in my contract. 

01

booking

Once my clients have made the decision to move forward with booking my services, we will then get the contracts signed along with the booking fee to hold their date.

02

PLANNING + CONSULTATIONS

Once I receive the contract signed and the booking fee to reserve my clients wedding date, we then will set a date for the complimentary engagement session. I will send some location ideas once closer to the set date and help with any wardrobe ideas my clients need.

03

ENGAGEMENT SESSION

My engagement sessions are about an hour long and all clients get to choose their 25 images that are included in the complimentary package with the option to purchase more. There is a two week turnaround timeframe to receive your downloadable gallery (excluding weekends and Holiday's) once you have chosen your images, the images in the gallery are edited, but before I deliver the final product, I make sure that they are completely finished before delivering the final product to my client's!

04

YOUR WEDDING

I help all of my clients with a timeline 90 days before their wedding day. This ensures that each section of the wedding day, your photographer is given enough time to get what they need. There is a specific amount of time I will need to have from the beginning to the end.

Are we allowed to add on extra hours? 

Yes, of course! Client can add on extra time if needed prior to the wedding when the final balance is due.

Do you resize your images?

 I don't resize my images. All of my images are very large so that each client can print them with no issues. The quality of my images is one of the reasons whey clients hire me.

Do you hold onto wedding images forever?

I do hold onto my wedding images for awhile, but after I give them to my clients, it's important for them to back up all of the files. I don't hold onto galleries indefinitely.

Do you post all of your weddings online?

Marketing is huge in this day and age for photographers. I do post the majority of my weddings as well as sessions on my Facebook, Instagram, Website and Blog. Without showcasing my work, nobody will be able to see my most frequent work and style when looking to hire me. It's important that I do showcase as much of my work as possible. I don't take any weddings that I am not allowed to display for viewing or publicizing.

Do you have a second shooter?

Every wedding that you see on my blog and website have been photographed by me only! I am the only photographer, and I don't give the option to hire another photographer. I don't see the need of two photographer's since I am well experienced to get every shot that's needed on your wedding day. I shoot with two cameras for 50% of the day and several lenses. I also move around a lot during ceremonies and receptions getting a ton of angels and the best pictures possible. I have never had any complaints.

How soon do we get our preview up?

I get all client's previews up within a two-week timeframe or less. I typically have a very quick turnaround time for previews

How long until we get our gallery?

My turnaround timeframe is 90 days. Please note, I have never taken a full 90 days to deliver a wedding gallery, but during the busy wedding season months, that time might be needed. I deliver 8-10 weeks for most of my wedding galleries since they are very large with hundreds of images.

Do you give full rights to our images?

As the artist, I do hold the rights to all of my images, however I do give the rights to my clients to reproduce, print, post online etc. Each client will get printing rights/license that will allow you to have rights over printing and posting. I unfortunately don't allow any other person or artist to re edit my images or for my images to be used for commercial or editorial purposes without written consent from me. 

How long have you photographed weddings for?

I have been photographing weddings for nearly 10 years now. I am experienced with all kinds of light, including flash that will need to be used for reception photography, as well as natural light.

I do recommend natural light for the bridal portraits, bridal party as well as the bride and groom portraits. I also LOVE outdoor weddings in natural lighting; however, I have photographed all kinds of ceremonies from Churches, Reception Halls and outdoor weddings.
