Hi, I'm Danielle Lawrance

After spending 15 years as a wedding and event planner in San Francisco & Boston, I took a part-time photography passion spanning two decades and made it a full time dream career. I've found that being easily adaptable in any situation along with years of experience allows me to see beyond the immediate and anticipate what comes next. Whether it's capturing a two-year old and their energetic personalities or watching the groom the moment he sees his bride walking down the aisle towards him. This love of documenting peoples lifes along with my years of event planning experience made this an organic and rewarding path.

Originally from Rhode Island, I met my husband, Michael, while living and working in Boston and soon thereafter we headed out west to enhance our careers. Living in the San Francisco Bay area, we allowed our careers to flourish while getting married in Napa, exploring the world and making a family.  Moving to Annapolis, Maryland in 2014 we had our 2nd baby girl, and I found myself seeking something to feed my soul. Encouraged to pick up the camera once again, it became very transparent that this was a natural next step in what I should be doing full time.  It's been a brilliant ride and I'm so excited to see who I will photograph, where I will travel and what I will be a part of next.

When not photographing amazing moments, I can be found anywhere near the water, exploring new adventures or enjoying amazing food & wine.
