the wedding experience

I’m sure your mind is racing with all that needs to be planned. It’s all very exciting but it can also be somewhat overwhelming. You’re planning the day that you’ve been anticipating your whole life and yet you only get one shot at it! By the time you get the hang of it, the planning is over!

My goal as a wedding photographer and videographer is to make this one aspect of the planning process simple. Not only do you deserve beautiful images or emotional video, you also deserve an amazing photographic or cinematic experience. When my couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, that results in genuine, joyful images and video!

Let me share your love story.   

I love finding out what makes you as a couple unique and translate that into your photos or video for your friends, family, and maybe one day your future children to see. There are so many ways to tell your story through photos or video. The color, light, venue and pose all combined make it your unique love story.

Every couple I meet has a unique story

Wedding Photography Collections start at $2600

"Danielle is incredibly talented, easy to work with, and made us feel comfortable posing and taking pictures (which isn't something we do often) I've recommended her to all of my friends who are getting married soon and even the ones who aren't! She captured every moment of my wedding day perfectly, and our engagement pictures turned out perfect. Danielle is very professional, got us through family formals with ease, and made the day more fun. I recommend her to anyone in search of an amazing photographer!"

Step 1: HI THERE, NICE TO MEET YOU!

After you send me a message, I’d love to learn a little bit more about your love story! I’d love to schedule a FaceTime/Skype session with you, or we can stick to email if you prefer. I want to know about how you envision the entire day and how photography fits into that.

Step 2: LET’S MAKE IT OFFICIAL!

After we’ve determined we’re a perfect match, we will do all the legal and official stuff like the contract and non-refundable deposit to secure that date as yours, making you an official Chaviano Creative Couple! This is when all the fun starts.

Step 3: ENGAGEMENT SESSION (PHOTOGRAPHY) OR LOVE STORY (VIDEO)

All of my photography packages include an engagement session - so we will begin to plan that shortly after you have booked! If you chose videography, you have the option of adding a love story video to your package, which acts very similarly to a regular engagement session, but with audio and video. I will send you tips before your session to help answer any questions about what to wear, where to go and more. We will chat about what you want your photo-vibe or video-vibe to be for your photos or video and plan based on that feeling and overall personality of you as a couple and what you are most comfortable doing. Don't be intimidated, I will pose you, show you what to do with your hands and get you all cozy and lovey-dovey looking, no matter how awkward you think you are going to look. I got you, no worries! You will be doing a lot of hand holding, forehead touches, and some kissing! You'll receive your photos or video back within just a few weeks to get those announcements and save the dates out, as well as show off how good you look to all your friends and family.

Step 4: ALL THE FUN WEDDING DAY DETAILS!

I help all my brides build a timeline for their wedding day so you don’t need to worry. You will receive a questionnaire that lets me know every detail of the day so I can build you a complete timeline to base any other time questions off of like hair appointments the morning of, when to tell the family to be present for photos and when to arrive at the reception! We will meet in person over coffee/drinks (or through Skype) about 8 weeks before your wedding day to review all the details!

Step 5: YOUR WEDDING DAY IS FINALLY HERE!

I always arrive a little early, so the first thing I will do when I arrive is come find you and ask you how you are doing and meet your beautiful family. Then I'm going to get all your details from you as you finish getting ready so I can capture all those little small things that make your day unique. We will move swiftly through the timeline, brush past any hiccups and get you down that aisle and of course to the party after! I've seen little hiccups, large hiccups, and crazy things happen during wedding days, but at the end of the day all my couples say “I do!” so does anything else really matter? Live in the moment, enjoy every second of the whirlwind day and I will capture some authentically wonderful moments for you to treasure for years to come.

Step 6: DELIVERING YOUR PHOTOS OR VIDEO

You will receive a link to your private online gallery within 8 weeks of your wedding and you will get to scroll through hundreds of beautiful memories all collected in one little space. Shortly after the wedding I will have a selection of favorites from your day featured on my blog!! See an example here! If you chose videography, you will see a similar online gallery filled with the items you chose in your package like highlights, toasts, full ceremony, etc, which is all usually delivered within 5 months of your wedding, but if you added an Instagram trailer then you will see that snippet much sooner!

The Wedding Experience

What I enjoy the most about weddings 

I get to see a bride’s mother get emotional when her daughter puts on her wedding dress. I see the intimate moments shared between a bride and groom during their first look. I witness a bride’s nervous and excited energy before she walks down the aisle. I laugh and cry as moments are shared between family and friends on the dance floor. I consider it a privilege and an honor to be a part of your family for the day. 


I get to become part of your family for the day
