Tell me a little bit about your business!
Have you ever been to a wedding where you are completely consumed by the couple’s love for one another? That’s basically me. I love “love”, and I am a cheesy, corny romantic at heart. I am the one who watches The Office a million times and still cries every time Pam agrees to a date with Jim. I am Danielle, owner of Danielle Durbin Film & Photo. I am wedding photographer and videographer, and I capture love stories. Let me hear yours!
What makes your work unique?
What makes my work unique is my purpose behind these images – confidence and love. I want my couples to feel magazine-worthy and confident in front of my camera, all the while capturing that beautiful, fun love that they share. I could go on about logistics, how I know what poses will flatter the body, and how I seek out the best light to get breathtaking, bright, colorful, and classic photos, but none of that shines without the love. It’s like cookies, without the sugar.
What is your ideal client like?
My ideal client is the couple madly in love. Seriously. Marriage is an endless sleepover with your favorite weirdo. I want the couples who love without question.
What is your approach to photography?
My approach to photography is finding the light and bringing the confidence. I know what you are thinking – that that is such a stereotypical photographer thing to say! But trust me, IT’S THE TRUTH! Beautiful light is a key ingredient in that cookie recipe. I am a natural light specialist, which basically means I photograph outside as much as possible throughout the wedding day. After I find good light and I show you how beautiful you are looking on camera, we can just hang out and take pictures. At your engagement session, you’ll be saying, “I could do this all day.”
