About me

Well hey there, I'm
a Chicago wedding photographer

Danielle Heinson

I’ve been taking photos ever since I learned how to hold a camera. From dressing up my beanie babies and creating “styled shoots” with them as a child to obsessively documenting every event I went to with friends, I simply never stopped taking pictures. It’s my true passion in life, and I am crazy lucky to also call it my career! Aside from being a lifelong photographer, I’ve also immersed myself in photography in other ways, working as a professional editor and retoucher for small businesses and large corporations. Working from this perspective has given me a true appreciation for all aspects of the art form, from coordinating shoots, to clicking the shutter, to the post-production process. Over the years, my varied experience awakened my creative curiosity, but currently specialize in couples, boudoir, editorial fashion (click here for more of those images), and pets 😉

I have a special kind of love affair with wedding photography. The day I shot my first wedding, I knew I had found the place for me. I'm a sucker for the sweet emotional moments, the laughter that comes along with such a joyful day, the gorgeous golden hour light and the romance of quiet couple shots. The importance of getting your wedding day extensively documented inspires me to do my best work. There's nothing quite like being part of such an important day in someone's life, and I see it as my duty to make the photography process as simple and stress-free as possible. I love having fun with my clients, and I wouldn’t be lying if I said I leave most weddings feeling like I’ve truly made new friends!

I am practiced in a variety of photography styles, and am capable of taking shots in motion, using all lighting to my advantage, and keeping your photo shoot rolling along smoothly no matter what is thrown my way. I can get down to business and wrangle all of your mysteriously disappearing relatives into a mantle-worthy family photo, be a fly on the wall while you’re getting ready, and style moments naturally to ensure that you’re left with photos you can’t stop staring at. Let me capture your love and I promise you won't regret it!
