CLASSIC, EMOTIONALLY DRIVEN PHOTOS
Serving Los Angeles + Palm Springs
Hey , I’m Dacia & I’m a Wedding Photographer
I created this little page to make things super easy for you. A whole lot goes into planning a wedding! I want to make this as fun and easy for you as possible.
Your wedding day isn't just about the two of you, its the space you've chosen to celebrate in and the people that you choose to celebrate with. Its the details you've given so much consideration to and the unplanned moments of surprise, connection, and joy.
I live by the simple philosophy of, “Work Hard And Be Nice To People”, and am so grateful to travel often and far to photograph people in love. I believe in the magic of a photograph and the poetic beauty of life’s most humble moments. My style is collaborative, organic and highly emotional. With your photos, I not only want you to remember how you looked, but how you loved.
Some Kind Words From Past Couples
I will always make sure that it feels like YOU.
Dacia is a true artist!!
One of the most important aspects for our intimate wedding aside from the marriage itself was the photographer ! And we firmly believe it is the best investment you will make for your day! Beautiful images that will last a lifetime and be passed on for generations is invaluable. Dacia give us this and so much more! We adored every single photo and have already went through them multiple times!
She captured every emotion and sees beauty everywhere! We were truly blown away by them all and can’t wait to print and share them with all of our friends and family!
With an Irishman getting their photo took can be worse than any ailment! But Dacia made myself and the hubby feel totally at ease.She is a lovely , patient and kind person! We cannot recommend her highly enough for your special day! Thank you so much Dacia!
Dacia is A M A Z I N G
Hands down, Dacia was one of our favorite wedding vendors. She’s an absolute joy and so easy to work with. Business-wise, Dacia has a system set up that made choosing the right photography package and making payments clear and easy.
She also responded quickly and concisely to emails. And creatively, she’s got a great eye for finding “the special,” whether that may be spotting a special location or capturing a special intimate moment. She’s also the most pleasant person you may ever meet, which is incredibly important when you have to act natural with a camera in your face as you’re being told to make out. Even in awkward moments like that, she’s got a knack for making you feel comfortable.
She also gets uber excited when she gets something good, which is so lovely and reassuring. Our photos came back more beautiful and special than we ever imagined. We can’t thank Dacia enough.
WHAT'S THAT? YOU WANNA HIRE ME?!
Alright, let’s do this thing! Just a $1500 deposit to book, with the remainder due 4 weeks before the wedding! Sign your contract, pay your deposit, and do a little happy dance, your date is locked in! Everything is done online, and you can pay with your credit card or directly from your bank account. During your planning process, I'm always available for questions or suggestions - just shoot me an email or a text. I mean it!
THE ENGAGEMENT SHOOT
Portraits, Love Session - call it whatever you want - I love engagement sessions! They're the best way for you to get used to being in front of the camera, kissin' and cuddlin' and lovin' on each other. It gives us the chance to understand how we best work together, making the wedding day go that much more smoothly. Bonus to all that is that you get more sweet photos of the two of you! I love to include elements of your life together in the shoot - your new puppy, you fave coffee shop, or just the stoop of the building where you’ve created a home together. Life moves so quickly and it’s a wonderful thing to have artifacts of this fleeting moment in your life together.
PARTY TIME, EXCELLENT
We've worked out the final details and timing of the day and now it’s time for you to celebrate and revel in the best party of your life! During the wedding day, I am your teammate, advocate, and friend. I'll make sure the family photos are done efficiently and happily. I've got my eye on the clock to make sure we're where we're supposed to be, on time. If you need a minute for just the two of you, don't worry, I can sense that and will facilitate that. When I'm needed to direct and organize, I'm on top of it. When it's time for me to fade into the background and shoot candidly, you won't even know I'm there. The result is a harmonious, organic photo experience where your photos truly tell the story of your wedding day and everyone involved in it.
In about 4 weeks you’ll receive your private online gallery, filled with all the details, emotions, love and forgotten moments of your wedding day. From here, you can order prints, download your high resolution files, and share the images with family and friends. Also, all packages include a print credit, which means you can choose which sizes and prints best suit you.
YOU'RE ENGAGED! NOW WHAT?
Let's be friends! It’s important to chose a photographer not just for the photos, but for the energy and the vibe they bring as well. Really, I'm gonna be following you around all day - we better like each other. Read more about me, and if it resonates, get in touch! I’ll get back to you within 24 hours, and we can set up a time to meet up over coffee or a cocktail, or set up a phone or FaceTime call if we’re not able to meet in person. During our meeting, we’ll talk schedule, your wedding plans in detail, and come up with the ideal package for your wedding day. It’ll also give us a chance to connect and I’ll get an opportunity to see how the two of you naturally are together and know more about your unique love story.
