We planned to have family photos taken on our vacation and Danielle met our needs perfectly! She joined us at the day and time requested and recommended a great place nearby to take our photos. Not only did we get beautiful family photos, we had a fun time, too. Sleepy, grumpy kids didn't stop Danielle from capturing fantastic professional portraits of our large family. We highly recommend Danielle!Jun 13, 2017Verified
Wedding and Event Photography
Hello. I hired Danielle for my daughter's Sweet 16 park photo session and I made the right choice. I was surprised. I loved all of my pictures! She indeed knows exactly what she is doing. Out of all the photographers I've had in 20 years, my hat goes off to her. You get what you pay for. If you want quality, she is it. She is a professional. I highly recommend her. She guided us in the posing and controlled the lighting. For those of you holding a once in a lifetime special event or would love an amazing family portrait, or any event that matters capturing in a photo, I truly and highly recommend her. I plan on keeping her in my contacts because her work is beautiful!Dec 31, 2018Verified
I'm writing this review to commend Danielle Penn on a outstanding job well done. I recently utilized Danielle's services for my family portraits. Danielle showed up on time and just delivered it! I was so impressed by her amazing work and how she works well with natural light to produce the exact pictures I was envisioning. They came out perfectly. I'm amazed at her ability to capture the moment and her uncanny eye for detail. This young lady is truly a artist and I look forward to using her for any and all photography needs I highly recommend her to anyone. Real pro 5 stars!!! Thank you so much Danielle.May 17, 2016
Danielle was so amazing to work with. Me and 22 of my family members traveled to California. We were nervous to hire someone online, without knowing anyone. Our photo shoot, included many small children. She captured everything perfectly. She worked so quickly to keep the kids happy. My entire family was very impressed.Aug 23, 2019Verified
Danielle was very punctual and responsive, and the photos look great! She was able to produce a photo in line with the requirements I provided for a specific shot, as well as provide additional photos with a creative touch. Her prices are MORE than fair for the quality of work she delivers, and she was very easy to work with.May 21, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer high-quality images at a fair price. I charge based on capture time and the time I spend editing in the studio, (which is double the capture time), to insure my client receives the same high-quality images they see in my portfolio, and come to cherish. I offer Thumbtack clients a large discount from my regular fees they will see on my website. Same quality work, at a discounted fee.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I love to understand exactly what the customer envisions. We can then work well together for the same goals. I like to engage in conversation, hear their thoughts, and give advice from a professional standpoint to achieve captured images that specifically is for them. I will then send out a booking agreement via email that states all the information discussed with time and date of the event or session.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have studied the art of photography for the last 10 years. Studied at University of West Florida I trained under a photographer who has captured over 100 weddings when I first began as an assistant. Within 6 months I became a second photographer. Within a year I was capturing weddings of my own. I then started my own business and have been loving what I do everyday. I constantly learn new techniques, love working with the newest and best photography equipment available, and brush up on courses every year.
