Ten years ago when my husband and I eloped, we promised we would do something big to celebrate the milestone later on. All I really wanted was to get dressed up, hike along the pacific coast with our daughter, and renew our vows... so that’s exactly what we did. We found Danielle Lentz online and after viewing her portfolio we knew that her style and aesthetic was exactly what we were looking for – bonus that she is a local, Snohomish photographer! From the start, Danielle was a true professional and very easy to connect with. We decided on La Push for our destination and she helped us in planning out the logistics for the day. The funny thing is, plans rarely go according to plan… our family arrived late to the campsite, we rushed to get ready, and the weather was not what hoped for. I had a low-key meltdown on the beach, feeling everything was a just a mess. Through it all, Danielle’s sweet and positive attitude kept us encouraged that we would get the photos we were hoping for, despite the complications along the way. She was patient, flexible, calm, and reminded us that we were on an adventure. She helped us relax and stay comfortable, which was significant considering we had never taken family photos before – and it can feel a little awkward at times! When we received the gallery with our photos a few weeks later, we were truly blown away. Danielle has such a great eye for capturing the moment, and it comes across so beautifully in her photos. She made this dream of ours come to life! I have shared the gallery with friends and family and received so many compliments – Danielle’s work is simply stunning. Looking back on the day, I realize that it was intimate, adventurous, silly, romantic, chaotic, and very, very lovely. Danielle, you are a gem. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
Danielle is a dream to work with!! She captured the most incredible moments from our day! She made us feel comfortable and her eye is impeccable!!
Danielle is just amazing. I’m so happy I hired her for our wedding day. I just got our engagement photos back, and I am so happy I’m already leaving a review! She captured our personalities and energy perfectly. There was hardly any coaching or cheesy posing, just great tips on how to be ourselves infront of the camera. The photos make me emotional. They tell stories. I couldn’t be more happier with her work. She’s also a fun and amazing person to be around.
Danielle is phenomenal! She was so sweet and worked with us on a great package even though we currently live in Denver (married in Seattle). I had high expectations going into the experience but she blew them all out of the water! We have pictures for a few weeks now and I can’t stop looking at them! We cannot wait to receive our heirloom book. 1million/10 would recommend!
Danielle was incredible from start to finish. Our photographs turned out beautiful, and we will truly cherish them forever. We loved every minute of our session with her and look forward to using her for our family sessions throughout the years.
Danielle takes the time to capture the most intimate and beautiful moments for a couple or family so they can cherish them for years to come. Danielle is a creative, talented, and inspiring photographer, woman, mother, wife, and friend. Her artwork covers our walls and makes our house a home.
Danielle is amazing to work with! We hired her for three sessions when my son was born (newborn, 6 month and 1-year photos) and could not be happier with the result of these beautiful pictures. She is so patient and put us at ease as we were dealing with the unknowns of a baby during our shoots, and her talent is apparent in the final product. We will cherish this images forever. I could not recommend Danielle enough!
Danielle is not only an amazing photographer, but she is more than willing to go above and beyond. Wedding planning has been a stressful experience, but every interaction with Danielle has been easy and straightforward. She is traveling for our wedding, and she made coordination of her accommodations and travel extremely easy, and by that, I mean she did it all! Now that I have experience working with other vendors, I could see that being a complete nightmare! Very pleased.
I met Danielle when we were on the same team in the corporate world. She was amazing to work with, very smart and enthusiastic with a great attitude and ALWAYS smiling and positive. She brings all that, and more, to her photography. She has an eye for beauty and the ability to capture it in her photography. Last year she captured the essence of my uncooperative Alaskan Malamute, landing him the coveted position of “cover dog” on a specialized calendar. We will treasure that forever. She has also done the photography at my daughter’s wedding. In order to really capture it, Danielle ended up shooting photos in at least 3 separate locations that day, which made it easily a 12-hour marathon for her. She gracefully and patiently herded the families and coaxed everyone to smile and enjoy the process while she captured the photos requested by the bride and groom. Her enthusiasm and good humor set everyone at ease and made it a fun experience. And - in case it’s not obvious - all this took a lot of planning on her part. I don’t think people realize how complex an operation it can be; this is a major life event and Danielle treated it as if it were her own. She is above all a professional who strives for perfection and she genuinely cares about her clients - she takes her role very seriously knowing that what she does captures and preserves memories for families for generations to come. I would not hesitate to engage Danielle for any important event - she loves a challenge and the ability to be creative, working with her clients to produce beautiful photos they’ll cherish.
I think Danielle is an amazing artist. 4 months ago she did our wedding and I can’t tell you how amazed I am at every photo. She truly captured the love between me and my husband. She makes you feel at ease with every meeting you have. She really helps work with you if you’re not sure what you’re wanting. I have the utmost respect for her and can’t wait for her to take photos of us in the future. You will not be disappointed whatsoever with any job she does for you.
Look no further! Danielle is your girl! My husband and I have had professional photos taken once and that was for our destination wedding 11 years ago. It was important to us to capture our pregnancy and those first few days of life with a newborn. Photoshoots can be awkward and intimidating but this was not the case with Danielle. She made us incredibly comfortable and captured each moment perfectly. We now have images like no other that we can treasure for a lifetime! We cannot thank her enough and look forward to working with her in years to come.
Danielle did such a great job! She did our maternity and newborn photos sessions, and both times she made us really comfortable and captured some really great moments (including our pup licking my face). I was really impressed with the style of the photos, it was exactly what my wife and I were looking for. I’m so glad our friend recommended her.
Words cannot express how much we love Danielle! We had so much fun during our engagement photo session! Photo shoots can be a bit awkward and intimidating, but Danielle made us feel so comfortable and gave us a little guidance when needed. All the while she captured some really amazing moments! Her attention to detail behind the scenes makes the finished product that much more special. I also have to rave on her location scouting skills. We wanted a killer backdrop for our pictures and she knocked it out of the park with recommendations. Danielle will also be with us for our destination wedding in December and we cannot wait! Do not be afraid to go on a little adventure with her, the outcome is well worth it! Danielle Lentz Photography for President!
Danielle is amazing! She has a talent for capturing not only a beautiful picture; but the emotion, the feelings, the true beauty of a moment like it is encapsulated in time! She is true to her vision and it really shines through her work. She has captured my pregnancy with my youngest daughter, her newborn, her 1 year and family photos for my clan. Each time When I think she has topped the last she blows me away again! I, without a doubt, wouldn’t hire another photographer!
Danielle was a pleasure to work with! She made sure the vision we had for our shoot came to life. She was so sweet and made us feel very relaxed even with our 2 crying babies. You can truly see her heart and passion she has for her work in the results. We can’t wait to use her again!
We had an awesome experience with Danielle! She made me and my fiancé feel very comfortable and made the whole experience a fun one. Our pictures turned out Amazing!!! She really is very good at what she does.
Thank you Danielle, for such an awesome family experience! We are so thrilled with the photo quality, numerous backgrounds and many pictures you captured of our family. Your relaxed and fun approach was so perfect for our 4 and 2 year old (they love you). Thank you also for being so quick to get us our pictures on the disc (less than a week). Highly recommend Danielle Lentz Photography to anyone looking for a photographer that is detailed orientated, with a fun, professional, flexible personality and creates beautiful, high quality pictures!
Amazing!! Danielle is awesome with our family pictures! She is extremely patient and somehow always captures amazing pictures with our family dog and toddler running around and not looking at the camera or crying! I don’t know how she does it! We had family pictures in December on the water and it was freezing and gloomy! We were nervous about how the pictures would turn out (Not sure why) and they were unbelievable! Literally! You would never know how cold and gloomy the day was because Danielle is amazing at what she does!! Love love her and her work!!
Danielle took maternity photos and newborn photos for both of my children. The photos are amazing. Danielle has a way of candidly capturing the sweetest moments. She is also very patient and understanding. Our two year old daughter was having a two-year-old kind of day when we did her newborn brother’s photos. I had nearly set myself up for failure by having such high expectations of her but Danielle was quick to reassure me that the real emotions make for better photos than the forced “say cheese” ones. And she was right. I can now look back appreciate those photos that capture our family and our own personalities perfectly. It’s well worth the investment. Kids grow so fast and I now have tangible and beautiful memories to look back on.
I was an admirer of Danielle’s photos after seeing her absolutely beautiful photos on her blog. I knew that I wanted her to take our photos and our couple’s session with Danielle could not have been more perfect! She worked with us prior to encourage us to think through what kind of look we were going for as well as locations that would be meaningful to us as a couple. Along the way, she was flexible and patient as our ideas for where we wanted to take our pictures changed and we unfortunately had to re-schedule a few times.On the day of our session, she suggested a different time of day than we were looking at in order to get the best lighting, which I never would have thought about and completely appreciated. I have to say I was very nervous at first being the focus of the camera for the day, but that quickly faded as Danielle walked us through how she would approach the session putting us at ease and encouraging us to just be us. She spent two hours with us and had a wonderful sense of humor and a great eye for details. The results clearly showed as she captured the most stunningly beautiful and natural photos of us (from start to finish-there was not one picture that I didn’t love and have gotten so many compliments). The photos Danielle took will be something I hold on to and cherish forever as we grow through the years as a couple and family. I would highly recommend Danielle to anyone looking to have their special moments captured in a natural and meaningful way. She is simply amazing!
Danielle was amazing. Not only did she take great photos, but she also went above and beyond to make sure my wedding went smoothly (despite some relatives showing up an hour late for photos). Not only that, but my grandfather passed away a few years later and she responded instantly when I asked for a higher res version of a photo he was in. Just such a great experience. Couldn’t recommend her more!
Danielle took the most amazing photos of my extended family on a cold November day at the beach last year. Not only was she professional and calm, but she helped in wrangling 3 crazy toddlers and managed to provide flawless photos regardless of tantrums and teeth chattering! We could not be happier with the memories she captured for us and we will recommend her to all our friends.
Danielle is flexible, creative, and has an artistic eye that means she always gets the shots you’re proud to frame and share. Even sometimes in spite of cranky toddlers, or uncooperative newborns...or husbands. She truly makes it work, whatever it is, with patience and imagination. Highly recommend!
Danielle has a great esthetic and skills but what sets her apart is her process. She took the time to get to know each member of my family before the shoot with simple questions that gave her insight into what would be special to us. This made the photos meaningful on a whole other level as they are in a location and have elements incorporated that have deep meaning to us as a family. She documented us having fun with easy direction that made it natural. We’ll be asking her to capture our families most precious moments again and again.
We had a great experience with Danielle. Two people who HATE having their picture taken actually found themselves enjoying their maternity shoot! She listened to our likes and dislikes and built a wonderful shoot around that. She took her time while shooting our newborn daughter ensuring that we got some wonderful shots. She even managed to corral my crazy family into a group shot! Every experience with Danielle has resulted in amazing pictures. I can’t imagine having anyone else capture these moments for us.
Working with Danielle to take my maternity photos was an amazing experience. She definitely has an eye to create a beautiful setting using nature’s beauty. Her schedule is flexible, she made this experience very meaningful for me and my husband, and even got some great action photos of my dogs. I can’t wait for her to take newborn photos of my baby girl!
We have had several professional photo shoots over the years and never really loved them. Danielle was highly recommended by my sister so I checked out her website. My husband and I loved the style so we scheduled a shoot. She is so personable and easy to connect with and work with, great with our son. Best pictures of the three of us that have ever been taken. I actually started sobbing when I got the images and clicked through them all. The photos completely captured our family. We will be going back to Danielle in the near future for more family photos.
