Alex and Benny’s wedding could not have been any more gorgeous, intimate and heartfelt. And for me to document their special day was the biggest honor. And from their engagement session, I could not have been more blessed with such a wonderful couple. Benny, Alex and their adorable baby girl Everly – I love these 3 so much.

  • So beautiful, Daniel! You did an amazing job capturing this beautiful wedding :)

Nannette and Mark’s engagement session took place at one of Orange County’s crown jewels – Thomas Riley Wilderness Park. And with how truly beautiful this couple is, I just couldn’t go wrong. Together with their sweet pup Grizzly, we had an evening full of romantic settings and their love for one another. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding later this year at Temecula Creek Inn Stone House!

Thank you Nannette and Mark for being so incredible. Cheers!

    Dude. Solid!

Benny and Alex’s wedding is tomorrow and I’m so absolutely excited. They’re set to get married at the gorgeous Hidden Oaks with all their loving family surrounding them. I’m so very blessed to have these two as my clients and friends, as they make my job an absolute dream.

For their engagement session, we hiked our hearts out amongst the mountains of Big Bear – One of my most favorite locations to shoot at.

  • Great set of images Daniel

In December I had the honor of helping Edmond with his plan to propose to his gorgeous, now-fiancé Erin, at the legendary Nikita Malibu Restaurant. It was the most perfect Malibu evening complete with nothing but the sound of the ocean, just under the most romantic candle lit scene. I had a blast being a part time ninja in hiding and then coming out from behind a tree to document such a sweet moment. Edmond and Erin, thank you so very much. I’m very much looking forward to what’s ahead!

Josh and Amanda have been longtime friends of ours who are also our road trip buddies. And for the holidays, we headed to San Francisco with a few planned photo stops in between of this gorgeous couple. The Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands and Sutro Baths were just some of the adventures we had with these great friends of ours, along with eating our way through the city of course! Always thankful for these two.

  • Love these! That light is gorgeous!!!
