Introduction: As a wedding and portrait photographer, I am talkative, an over-sharer, and most importantly, I am passionate about what I do, and how I do it. I love connecting and being able to put you and your loved ones at ease in front of the camera to capture those once-in-a-lifetime, moments that you 'feel' when you see your photos. My clients trust me, and they are my people! They know I will work extremely hard for them and I'm a ton of fun to work with! Photography for me is not just looking through a lens and snapping a photo. It’s feeling, a connection, to life, to people, and their unique stories. As a photographer, if you can’t truly 'feel' what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your photos 💜 Dogs, Love, and Coffee - Dan Daniel Adams Photography, LLC For "fun facts about me" check out my website!

Portrait Photography

Dan did a great job for us with newborn photo shoot. He even took a few clicks of our extended family. Very friendly person and easy to deal with . And he was very patient and accommodating with all our requests . Already recommended him to few of my friends already . Thank you so much Dan.

Portrait Photography

Dan and his assistant Maci were absolutely amazing. They showed up on time and ready to go with smiles (I could see them even under the masks). They were extremely professional and captured everything I wanted and more. I had not gotten professional photos with my 5 y/o since he was 1 and we threw that into the mix of what I hired Dan for. I hired him to capture photos of my newly purchased children’s gym/play place while doing so also capturing my son and a couple other children enjoying. I am wowed by the beauty and magic they were able to photograph. These are not just pictures they tell a significant story. I cannot wait to print some pics for myself as well as update my companies website and brochures with the art they created behind their lens. Not to mention they are wonderful people and were so patient and kind to the children!! If you are looking for the BEST look no further. The passion they have is apparent in all that they do.

Wow Allison! Thank you so much for taking time to write such an amazing and beautiful review! I can’t read your review and not get choked up, okay to be transparent, I’m even tearful reading it! I do not see, or feel any shame as an adult male in sharing that. We really pour our hearts into what we do. Opportunities like yours, and your review moreover, really gives me the courage and drive to continue to push through the saturated photography business barriers and make it a full time career. Thanks again so very much, it was our pleasure and we were honored to be chosen for your shoot. Dan & Maci Adams

Daniel did a great job with my photos. He responded in a very prompt and professional manner and was very easy to work with. I am happy with the quality of my photos and I felt like the price was very fair. He was able to schedule me in a very short time frame. Thanks Daniel!

My wife and I chose Dan to photograph our special day (Wedding and Gender Reveal combo). We couldn’t have been happier with his services. He showed up early and took all the photos we wanted including some extras we asked for. He stayed later then planned and was very fun to work with. If your looking for a great photographer look no further, Dan and his team were excellent people to work with!!

Dan made me feel very comfortable from the start. He responded right away and we were able to meet quickly and had a very nice meeting. I very much look forward to working with Dan at my wedding. He spent the time getting to know myself and my fiance so that he can capture us during our special day! I already am very comfortable with Dan after our first meeting and look forward to working with him.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Flat-rate pricing. No image release fees, or fees for high-resolution downloads, no hidden fees at all. We agree on a flat rate and you receive a beautifully crafted online portfolio with integrated personal printing options. Print your photos!! With me you can download, print, and share all you like. My photography is worth much more than you'll pay through this app. The long hours for a photographer kick in when I get back to the studio. I personally edit all my own raw files. I don't farm out edits of your images to someone who doesn't even know you and your personality. This allows me more flexibility with pricing as well as delivering better images.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Booking is seamless and super easy. We connect to make sure I'm a good fit for you, we discuss your special day or event, then I send you your booking and files all in one place. I use HoneyBook to keep this part super simple and my clients love it! I also help with choosing locations for the most beautiful images when asked as well as provide style guides and I'm always willing to help any way I can.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a professional photographer with professional grade gear and lighting, this is my full-time job. My interesting life experience affords me a unique ability to relate and connect with clients of all walks of life. I've been published a lot! From The Knot, Wedding Wire, Modern Bride, WRC World Championship, and am a PPA certified professional photographer. I’ve worked in the executive healthcare sector after starting as a medic and firefighter. Disaster response for over 10 years, and build multi million dollar companies. Those leadership abilities and ways of handling high stress environments, especially that have no room for failure or errors, have equipped me with a unique ability to stay calm when when things are happening as well as being able to think outside the box. I have not box, no set way of doing, and am creative and outgoing as well as very tech savvy.
