Welcome

Congratulations on your engagement!  I’m so glad you’re here!  I’m Barb, the owner of Danielson Photography.  I’m an artist, a wife and a mother, and I get to spend my days celebrating love as I help couples celebrate the biggest day of their lives!  I provide a high end, client-centered wedding photography experience focused on documenting your unique love story through timeless photography and heirloom albums that can be passed on for generations.  I might be the photographer for you if:
  • you believe building a strong marriage is more important than the wedding day.
  • you appreciate the finer things, but don’t get too caught up in the details.
  • you are already planning how to hide your ugly cry face (don’t worry, I’ll be tearing up, too).
  • you can’t wait to celebrate on the dance floor!
I would love to get together at a local coffee shop and discuss your dream wedding day (although, I’ll admit, I’ll be drinking hot chocolate or Diet Coke). I can’t wait to get to know you!

Paris in Spring
If you know my husband and I, you know that we are adventurers at heart.  We go on trips any chance we get and have moved all over with each other.  One of the promises we made when we first started dating was to always make time for adventures, even when life gets in the way.  Ryan had promised me before we were even married that he would take me to Europe before I turned 30 and well, the clock was ticking.  He made good on his promise, and we spent a week in Paris last May with 5 months to spare!  Follow along as I recap the trip, from how it came to be, to where we went along the way.  I'm also mixing in my iPhone photos because some days ...

Ben and Danny | Spring Cedar Ridge Winery Wedding
I'm so excited about sharing this Cedar Rapids same sex wedding at Cedar Ridge Winery from earlier this year.  Let me just take a moment to say, I hate including those keywords because a wedding is a wedding, no matter who is exchanging vows.  But Google likes keywords and I want to be found by other same sex couples in the area, so please excuse the clarifying phrase. And now, on to Ben and Danny's love story!  They met on a blind date at Mickey's Irish Pub in downtown Iowa City and the rest is history.  When I asked what they were most excited about in married life, Ben said they were practically married already and Danny said he couldn' ...
