I'm Danaea, a wedding, lifestyle and portrait photographer based in Vancouver, BC. Married since June 2015 to that fella in the image above and it's pretty darn awesome (his name is Silas). We are new parents to our son Brixton and are enjoying the wild ride of parenthood immensely! I started my business in 2011 and Silas joined me in photographing engagements and weddings in 2016. He clearly couldn’t deny his raw, natural talent any longer. We both really enjoy meeting new people and spending our evenings and weekends together so teaming up was just a smart thing to do! We are very into exploring new places and have a long list of cities we hope to go to one day with our son in tow. We feel incredibly fortunate to tell people’s stories. We are very motivated by people. Our idea of fun is sharing a meal or drink with people we love, and likely enjoying a wild living room dance party.
We shoot weddings and engagements together and it's a blast! We love being able to serve our couples alongside each other and it's a great feeling knowing we have the same goal, to bless each Bride and Groom with meaningful, emotional, artfully driven images from their day. We are going to tell your story as a couple and of the wedding day as it unfolds naturally! Our goal is never to heavily direct or pose but more to simply guide you to create the best photos possible. We love weddings because we love people and there is nothing more thrilling than capturing those fleeting moments full of big emotion at this once in a lifetime kind of day. We are there to get the really good stuff and showcase how your wedding day went down for real! Let's keep it genuine folks, just do you and let us do what we do best! Our favourite images are up close and personal. We get in the action because we know you want to remember the moments as they happened, not as they were seen from the corner of the room.
