Hi there, I'm DanielleHi there, I'm Danielle

Most days you can find me snuggling with my adorable dog, Abu, binging on Netflix with my husband Gustavo and exploring the arts scene and restaurants in Milwaukee.  People often refer to me as doer – I like having a checklist and getting things done!  I am most passionate about traveling the world with my awesome husband (preferably on a cruise ship!).


I photograph beauty, emotion and drama.  I serve people who desire a photojournalistic and polished look to their photographs, or who want something cinematic captured on film.


As a photographer and videographer for the Florentine Opera, my work has been seen on local TV (WISN12, WTMJ4, CBS58), featured on the front page of Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and articles in the Shepherd Express, Urban Milwaukee, OnMilwaukee and Wisconsin Gazette.  My videography work with Milwaukee Ballet has spread virally on social media with over 100,000 views. 


In my spare time, you can catch me reading a good book, playing video games, singing in choir, and exploring the great city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.


As I’ve mentioned earlier, my husband Gustavo rocks my world!  He’s a choir teacher for a group of wickedly talented high school students.  We started dating April 2007 while we were still in high school - yes we were high school sweethearts! We attended the same college at UW-Whitewater and one of the highlights of our college days was going on an eleven-day cross-country trip across Germany with our college choir.  We’ve been bit by the travel bug ever since!  


Still here? You’re a trooper! Let’s connect!
