hi!! I'm DanaA Washington based + Destination photographer with a passion to help you perserve genuine and dream-like memories that will last a lifetime. I strive for ‘artistic documentary’ photography, storytelling, and timeless imagery. I want your experience with me to be something you genuinely enjoy; before, during, and afterwards.

When I'm not capturing memories you can find me hiking, practicing yoga, singing ,  trying new coffee shops with fiancé Jake and scouting for epic locations! I like to focus on the experience and connection.




  • I love creating in multiple mediums - watercolors, ceramics and digital art are a few of my faves.

  • I grew up in Mexico City until I moved to the states when I was 14. I go back to Mexico a couples of times a year.

  • I fell in love with Oregon when I visited my aunt the summer of 2008. I moved in 2010 to live with her :)

  • I met my fiancé in high school choir and we're getting married this June in Santorini, Greece!!

  • I LOVE the outdoors - hiking, camping, paddle boarding - but I am also a sucker for a movie night and warm cup of tea.

  • I have 3 fur babies - Anji and Phoebe - my two cats. And Dottie - our2 year old mini aussie.


 There is nothing more gratifying than seeing smiling, happy couples as they relive their cherished wedding memories through my images over and over again. No matter how big or small your celebration is we will make some magic!


Your wedding day is all about you and your love story being told how you want it. Smaller guest count? Destination elopement? Just the two of you? Count me in!


Photos are such precious things to look back on. Celebrating your vow renewal? Anniversary? Maternity Photos? Just for fun? No matter how you want your love story documented, I got you!


The days fleet when you have little ones. I love capturing these intimate moments and watch families interact in a raw and natural way. Years down the road when your babies are all grown up you will be glad to have these memories to hold on to.






For the wildly in love, the adventurous spirits and those who aren't afraid to get a little wet. I will provide a completely customized experience for your ideal photoshoot. My passion behind photography comes from the idea to capture people in their essence. Bringing out genuine emotions is what photography is all about. 

Why hire a professional photographer to capture these moments?


Photos are one of those things that are (~ in my opinion) essential to the story we tell ourselves about who we are and what things matter most in life. Encapsulating the essence of an experience is my passion, Through my knowledge and tools I will preserve these memories so years down the road you can remember what that moment felt like and relive it all over again.  My style is warm, candid and in the moment - no heavy posing!

Lets create something magical.


Your love story deserves to be captured in the most candid and romantic way. Aaaaand most importantly, be fun and look back on photos you will love years down the road! Check out my frequency asked questions or get in touch to make it official.

"Dana feels like family. My husband and I felt so comfortable in front of her and confident that she'd capture our special day as I had always envisioned it. There was complete ease and peace of mind. It's difficult not to trust someone as kind, down-to-earth, and generous as Dana is. If I had to do my wedding day all over again, I would still choose her. I mean, just look at her stunning portfolio! Thank you Dana for capturing the best day of our lives."
