GET TO KNOW ME

I'm a mother, a wife, an artist, a traveller, a goal setter, a big picture person, an empath and I never get the same answer on those enneagram tests.

I'm not the type to hug you like an old friend, but I am a genuine listener. My personality is fairly quiet, though I am goofy once we know each other. I hate coffee even though we are probably meeting at a coffee shop, and I have an unhealthy obsession with Diet Coke.

I tear up at every father/daughter dance, and usually at your vows, too.

Inclusivity is the center of my business, and I welcome all couples regardless of gender, race, faith or who you love.

I might be the right photographer for you if:

- you appreciate the finer things, but don't let yourself get too caught up in the details.

- you are already strategizing where to hide your tissues (my camera bag has extra pockets!)

- you can't wait to celebrate on the dance floor!

I'M A TRUSTED PRO

I get stuff done. When you hire me, you can expect prompt communication and a high end experience. I am one of the only Iowa wedding photographers with a fine art background, earning my BFA in photography from the University of Iowa. I boast one of the fastest turnaround times in the area, delivering your images in 2 weeks or less. I'm straightforward and caring. I've been in your shoes and am here to make things as easy as possible for you!

"Barb's photography of our wedding surpassed all our expectations. She left us with a photographic record so glorious, we feel like movie stars. I can't say enough good things about her work."

...AND A DREAMER

"One of the best decisions we made for our wedding!"

When I'm not working on my business, you can find me nurturing the magic. Camping, nature hikes, fairy gardens, stargazing...I put a lot of energy into embracing the small adventures around us. I also love to travel, garden, go to the movies, practice yoga and you can probably find my introvert self curled up on the couch binge-watching Real Housewives and Vanderpump Rules.

"I would highly recommend Danielson Photography. Barb is very professional, responsive, and creative."

I'M A ROMANTIC

I have spent the last 10 years learning and growing into adulthood with my soulmate. Our whirlwind of a romance inspired me as an artist and businesswoman, and it's a pleasure to share that magic. I know the power that comes from committed love and I believe love will change the world.

My favorite part of my job is getting to know each couple. Every one is different, with new hopes and dreams, new inside jokes, new insecurities. It's fascinating and an honor to witness. How freaking cool is it that I get to watch real life love stories play out every week? Middle school me obsessed with The Notebook would think that's pretty cool.
