Wedding and Couple’s
Heeey! I’m Danika.
I am an Intimate Wedding and Couple’s Photographer and Videographer! I am based out of Spokane, Washington with second “home-bases” in San Diego and Kauai and will travel all over!
My number one title is Mama to my two girls and I’m a happy-happy wife to my known-for-his-beard + skills in the kitchen husband. I’ve lived in every corner of the U.S.- WA, ME, FL, CA + TX- I think that’s where the itch to always keep exploring came from. I chase the sun and the sea, I Crossfit regularly, and I surf when I get the chance!
I ditched the posing and props a long time ago and started focusing on real emotion and connections being made in front of the camera and all of a sudden it was like BAM that’s what made me feel something, and it probably makes you feel something too because you ended up here! So let’s grab a six pack, get to know each other, make some real life happen and document THAT.
All ova’ the West Coast and Hawaii
Based in the Pacific Northwest
"My husband and I were fortunate to have met Danika and her husband during our time in Texas. Her work captures real love in its purest form without forcing unrealistic expectations. It's a natural experience with Danika, I highly recommend her to capture your next intimate moment." -Jamie
"I heard about Danika through my cousin. We were adopting our son and wanted a photographer to capture the entire experience in and out of the courtroom. She was so patient with our five young kids and captured moments that we will forever cherish. I cannot recommend her talent enough!" -Molly
"I am grateful for the moments Danika captured during my motherhood session. Photography is an art of capturing intimate and deep emotion. Danika does an incredible job capturing moments you will cherish forever." -katie
"I've been lucky to have photos taken by Danika twice now. Each time she makes it so comfortable and fun, that there is no need to be nervous or awkward about having your photograph taken. You are able to feel at ease, natural, and just enjoy the process. Many laughs have been shared and memories been made!" -Emily
"I've never paid for professional pictures before. I was nervous that my toddler wouldn't cooperate and then we'd be out a lot of money. Boy am I glad we invested money in Danika! She was so relaxed and patient! My husband and I literally played with our toddler and somehow Danika was able to capture truly amazing family pictures. We will be using Danika again!" -Kailee
