INCREDIBLE! Danielle was a must have for our wedding. When we met Danielle, we immediately knew she would be the perfect photographer for our wedding. She is professional, master of her craft, organized, and an artist. Her photographs are beautiful, and we feel so fortunate we were able to have her be apart of our wedding. Her vision and creativity has provided us photos we will cherish for a lifetime. We have been so impressed with her work and she was the perfect addition to our wedding day. Danielle has level of perfectionism and craft that exceeds all expectations. She made us feel comfortable and at ease while we took our photos and she was able to capture our personalities and love flawlessly. She is detail oriented, works exceptionally well with other vendors, sticks to a timeline, and moved our day along seamlessly. Additionally, throughout the planning process she had multiple resources we were able to take advantage of to prepare for our day, It has been so fun sharing her photographs with our friends and family. Additionally, my husband and I both come from large families, and Danielle went out of her way to make sure we captured family portraits with all four sides of our extended family. She is an outstanding photographer, and we are very grateful to her for capturing our special day. Thank you, Danielle!

I cannot possibly say enough great things about Danielle! She is absolutely incredible and one-of-a-kind to say the least. Our engagement and wedding photos turned out amazing and we feel so lucky to have them to keep forever. She captured EVERYTHING - no detail went unnoticed. She's so talented and so much fun to work with. In addition to the photography, Danielle helped me stay relaxed on my wedding day and kept everything running smoothly all day long. We owe a large part of our seamless day-of timeline to her and her team (we chose not to have a day-of coordinator and lucked out with such a rock star of a photographer). If you choose Danielle as your wedding photographer, zero chance you will be disappointed. Thank you, Danielle!!

Danielle is AMAZING to work with!!! I would give her more than 5 stars if I could. I didn't have the chance to meet her in person until the day of our wedding so I was a little nervous, but as soon as she walked in the door I knew I would have nothing to worry about. She didn't miss a beat the entire day! She was extremely professional and we received tons of compliments from guests about how efficiently she was able to get all of our family groupings done. She even managed to fit in additional formal family shots after our ceremony, which was no small feat with several VERY large families. She was so efficient that we ended up having extra time to hang out with our wedding party between the ceremony and the reception, which we were not expecting at all. Her upbeat positivity made everyone, myself included, feel at ease all day long. On top of all of that, she made sure that we got all the shots we wanted on the big day and her pictures were incredible. She beautifully captured every little detail from start to finish. If you are lucky enough to have the chance to book Danielle for your wedding, don't hesitate and just DO IT. I can't emphasize enough. You will not regret it!

Choosing a photographer that I loved was at the top of my list when I began planning my wedding. The decision was made easy when I came across Danielle's work and spoke with her on the phone. She was everything I was looking for - fun, professional, attentive to details, easy to communicate with and on top of all of those things, she creates the most beautiful, timeless photos. We absolutely loved working with her and her team. From the moment her coverage began on our wedding day, she was organized beyond what I thought possible, ensuring she captured every important moment. Danielle, her husband, and her second shooter (also named Danielle) made the whole wedding party and our family members feel comfortable in front of the camera. It's a challenge to make a group of guys enjoy taking pictures but not only did my husbands groomsmen have fun in front of the camera, the photos turned out wonderfully! No part of the day felt rushed or forced and I felt like she was truly there to make sure we were happy, comfortable and enjoying our day. Lastly, Danielle is extremely timely in returning her work - something we really appreciated as we anxiously awaited our gallery. We can't stop looking through our photos and are SO grateful for her talent!!!!
Danielle and her husband photographed my wedding in September. I can honestly say that choosing her for my photographer was one of the best decisions I could have made for my day, besides marrying my now husband :) Not only did my pictures turn out more amazing than I could have even anticipated, Danielle and her assistants were so helpful all day and went above and beyond what the duties for a photographer would be. She was consistently making sure things were running on time, she helped with my veil for the ceremony and my bustle for the reception...truly just went beyond the normal duties for a photographer. Not to mention everyone, including the groomsmen and many members of my family, were commenting throughout the day and after the event how wonderful Danielle and her husband were to work with. They were energetic, and it is very obvious they truly love what they do. Overall, if I could give them over 5 stars I would...not to mention, most importantly, my pictures turned out ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!! We get compliments on them constantly and they perfectly captured the essence of our day!!!
Danielle Harris has a gift that only few have. She see a moment and captures it expressing it in a way that leaves you breathless. She is a true professional that gets her job done keeping you on schedule to enjoy everything happening around you. Danielle not only made us feel comfortable but she made us laugh through our happy tears. You know you are going to get special results when she herself feels the emotions of your day. You will NOT be disappointed in her work. Do not hesitate to book her!

We hired Danielle Harris' associate, Anne, to be the photographer for our wedding and had a fantastic experience! Anne does beautiful work, we absolutely love our wedding and engagement pictures! Anne is easy going and has a fun/calming presence- which is valued for such a big day! We got our pictures back very quickly and could not believe the quality! Danielle is organized and responsive to e-mails. She works well with you, her associates and all of your other wedding vendors to ensure the logistics are set up in advanced. We loved working with DHP and absolutely recommend!

Danielle was AMAZING! Our package included an engagement session and could not have been more pleased! My husband was a little worried about having an engagement session because he usually has a fake photo smile, but Danielle was able to make us laugh and talk so that we had natural, adorable smiles in our pictures. She made us feel like she wasn't even there! Danielle is so fun and had us laughing the entire day. We couldn't recommend her enough.

I knew from the moment I met Danielle she had to be our photographer!! Her passion and enthusiasm for weddings was contagious and made me even more excited for my own! I was confident she would capture our engagement and wedding photos beautifully. She’s extremely organized and on top of everything. I booked Danielle more than a year out and she would touch base every couple of months to stay in the loop with who my other vendors were and she was always available to answer any wedding related questions I had. She also has so many great resources to help plan your big day including outfit ideas for engagement photos, day of prep guide, recommended vendors, etc. Danielle worked meticulously with my wedding planner and all my other vendors to ensure everything the day of our wedding went smoothly and perfect. We had a large bridal party and I knew Danielle would be able to handle us with ease. She kept the boys in line and the girls on time. Her sense of humor keeps things light and her attention to detail is impeccable. She has an amazing way of making your feel comfortable and keeping things fun even if you feel awkward in front of the camera! Danielle also delivers on her timeline promises and we always had our photos delivered on time, if not early!! I also love how she sends previews, which gets you even more excited to see all of her work from your day. If I could do our wedding day over again, I would without hesitation choose Danielle again! She’s an amazing photographer and I’m so glad we have so many amazing photos from our wedding day to cherish for years to come!
Hands down the best wedding photographer in the Indianapolis area. From the moment we spoke on the phone, I knew Danielle HAD to be our photographer. Danielle is brilliant, creative, professional, and talented. She makes you feel completely comfortable in front of the camera and does a wonderful job capturing just what you want! I would highly recommend Danielle -- so stop researching and book this girl! :) You will not regret it!

We could not have picked a more amazing photographer for our wedding!! Danielle has so much talent it is unbelievable. The eye she has for catching the most breathtaking images is just incredible! I cannot say enough about how talented she is! WOW is all I could think when I saw our wedding pictures for the first time, the second time, and the hundreds of times after! We cannot thank you enough for our absolutely beautiful pictures!!
Valle Vista Country Club
Danielle is absolutely amazing! From the first meeting to our actual wedding day, she helped us every step. She made my hubby and I comfortable and really captured our love for each other perfectly! She made sure we stayed on schedule and went far above and beyond what we expected. I can't imagine ever working with anyone else. She is THE BEST!
The Ritz Charles
If it was possible Danielle would get a 10/5!!! Danielle was not only my photographer for my engagement session and wedding but she became my friend and my advocate on my wedding day. As if her photographs were not enough to convince you to book her services as they are breathtaking and beautiful understand you are getting much more then a photographer. Danielle was my go-to person when booking several vendors. She recommended my fantastic DJ as well as my hair and makeup stylist. I couldn't have been more pleased with her recommendations. But she doesn't stop there. As I mentioned she became my friend. At the engagement shoot she instantly put us at ease and had us laughing the entire time!!! She offered to help with planning numerous times and always made sure I knew she was a text or e-mail away if I ever needed help, advice, or just someone to talk to that knew the industry. She was so excited about our wedding theme and all the personal touches we did and her enthusiasm was contagious.

Danielle and her team went above any beyond everything I could've dreamed for in a wedding photographer! They captured every incredible memory of the day in the most beautiful and special ways and made sure anything we were hoping for came to life! We got to relive the day quickly with promptly returned photos and even a month out I find myself going through our gallery on the daily! Not only that but our photographers were so much FUN! I was so sad to see them go at the end of the night! I am so thankful to her and team for giving us beautiful memories to cherish (and brag about) forever!

Working with Danielle throughout the planning of our wedding was so enjoyable. Not only does she capture stunning photos, her communication was always timely, she is very organized and which helped prepare us for our big day. We loved having her as a part of our day and she made photographing a 30 person bridal party a breeze. THANK YOU Danielle for helping to make our day so perfect and for the lasting memories we have in the beautiful photos you captured.

Danielle was the best photographer we could have asked for to capture our wedding! She was great to work with, and didn't have us do any cheesy posing. Danielle not only took amazing photos, but helped us to stay on schedule during our wedding day, and even carried my toss garter for us! I would recommend her to any bride!! The photos are exactly what we had envisioned

Nick and I would like to truly thank Danielle Harris for capturing our special day. When we first got engaged and started planning, my only real requirement was to have a photographer who not only took the best photos but also someone we felt comfortable with. From the moment we met Danielle, we knew we wanted her to be our photographer, and we know our day wouldn't have been the same without her. These photos are gorgeous, and we can't wait to look back at them in the years to come. Thank you Danielle!! You are truly amazing at what you do.
Magnolia Plantation, Charleston
We met Danielle in the cutest little coffee shop in broad-ripple Indiana. It had coffee ...it had wine and beer and the decor was bold and fun. Where you decide to take a new client speaks a lot about you as a person. Your demeanor, your personality, how you prefer to work, and your presence. When we first walked in Ashley (my wife) and I looked at each other quickly and both understood that we were about to be in great hands.
Danielle's work is amazing. You can look through all of her websites...blogs and many many published articles (check out my wedding in Style me Pretty!!) to figure that out. For me when my wedding planner gave me 4 choices of photographers and styles I took one look at Danielle's work and there wasn't a second question as to who I wanted to take our photos. She is incredible at what she does. Just go look at everything she has online you can see that for yourself.
What I want to talk to you about it the relationship. When you are thinking about your wedding there are a lot of moving pieces and components. Once it all comes together for that 1 and only moment in time you realize that you will never get that moment or space back. Never again exactly the same. Ashley and I are all about relationships. We refuse to do anything with anybody if we can't build a strong supportive relationship. This goes from who we bank with, to our doctor and dentist. Everyone is someone that shapes your life and if you search out those that you can build relationships with your experience will more than not be a positive and pleasant one.
Danielle's personality is bright like a beautiful yellow sunny day when the sky is that perfect shade of crystal blue. The happy, energetic, ambitious feeling you get on those days is how you feel every time you are around her. Danielle makes you feel like she cares about you and your family, your life and your wedding. The day of our wedding both Ashley and I were excited for her to come and "hang out" with us while we were getting ready. We genuinely both enjoyed her company. That is they type of person you get with Danielle just someone you want to be around. She makes the day even more fun.
The thing that meant the most to me throughout my experience with Danielle is how she made me feel. Ashley is always telling me that people will forget what you have said to them but they will never forget how you make them feel. Every step of the way Danielle made me feel like my wedding mattered. My wedding was the most important wedding she was a part of and my wedding was special to her. I'm going to say that again. Danielle made me feel like MY wedding was special to her.
Once it all comes together for that 1 and only moment in time you realize that you will never get that moment or space back. Never again exactly the same. Ashley and I are so happy that we chose Danielle to capture those moments for us. We are truly thankful for her.

Go with Danielle - you will not be disappointed! I'm extremely picky and very much a planner. I chose most of my vendors based off of 3 reviews and I was looking for 3 things - reliability, value, and quality of work. Danielle fit the bill and we had a great engagement session - everyone was raving about our save the dates. I was expecting Danielle to be just as good for the wedding, but she blew me away! She was with us all day - 7:45 AM to 11 PM. She kept us on track - took every single one of the photos I requested - and still managed to get beautiful detail and candid photos. She is extremely responsive, kind, and fun to be around - and that is exactly who you want with you on your wedding day because your photographer spends more time with you than your maid of honor! I'm so lucky to have found Danielle through reviews on websites like this one - so hopefully this one helps you - but seriously, don't think twice about booking Danielle.

Danielle was so fun and awesome to work with throughout the whole wedding process! Leading up to the big day, she was always willing to answer any questions I had, no matter how big or small! The wedding day was perfect, and she kept reassuring me everything would be beautiful after a rainy morning. Sure enough, the sun came out and I am so incredibly pleased with the images she was able to capture. Her work is fantastic, she's so efficient and organized, and I didn't have to worry about a thing.
Indiana State Museum
Upbeat, high energy, extremely organized. Loved working with Danielle! She was an amazing photographer and her team was great too! She knows how to direct and that is what you need for the day of! Highly recommend her to anyone and the timeliness of her photos are amazing!!
Danielle is absolutely amazing! I could not have asked for a better photographer to work with for our wedding. She is a one of a kind, and you will not find anyone better for your wedding. I did a destination wedding and I am so happy Danielle and her team were able to make the trip to Florida. The pictures that were captured are incredible, she has such a true talent for capturing the moment.
Danielle was fantastic. From our engagement session to our wedding - she helped us feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera, helped us to stay on track throughout day, and was very professional. We received our pictures less than 3 weeks after the wedding. Thanks!!
We had the pleasure of having Danielle Harris and her team photograph our engagement and wedding photos. Danielle was referred to me by a friend, and I am beyond grateful for that. She was awesome! We knew the second we met her that we were in good hands. She was helpful, patient, fun and hilarious to work with.
My husband and I are awkward picture people, but with Danielle's expertise, you would have never known (well mostly :)! She nailed our engagement pictures. They were all soooo good! Sometimes getting your pictures taken professionally can be tedious, a pain in the butt or exhausting. We did not have an ounce of that with Danielle. We had so much fun the entire time!
I knew on our wedding day that we would not have to worry about a thing because we had Danielle. By the time she came to the room where my girls and I were getting ready, it was pure chaos. Girls everywhere... dresses and clothes everywhere... makeup everywhere... This was no issue for Danielle. She jumped right in and did her magic! She brought Anne from her team as well on our wedding day, who was as equally as amazing as she! They were seriously the best. We had a pretty big bridal party and as all weddings go, we were on a tight schedule. Danielle and Anne were very accommodating, patient and helpful.
I just got my wedding pictures back yesterday and I am over the moon! They are all sooooo good! I cannot recommend Danielle and her team enough. You won't be disappointed! In fact, get ready for all of the compliments you will receive from your friends and family on your beautiful photos! :)
Danielle was an excellent photographer! She guided us through every step of the process, from our first meeting before our engagements photos all the way until the end of our wedding day. *Very* highly recommended! :D Can't say enough good things about Danielle and her work.

Danielle is more amazing than we ever could have imagined possible. The talent, professionalism, and quality of photos she provided are worth every bit and more of what we paid. We were extremely pleased with every aspect of dealing with Danielle and her team, and so was our wedding party and families on the big day. We feel blessed to have found such a terrific vendor for the biggest day of our lives and that they were able to capture everything to help us relive our memories of the day over and over again. We highly recommend Danielle to all future couples. We feel our wedding day would not have gone as smoothly or successfully if it had not been for the help and fun energy that danielle & her team brings!
The Indiana State Museum
Danielle is a top notch professional with an amazing talent. If you have yet to experience her work, you are missing out. Please do yourself a favor and hire her for all of your photography needs. You will not be disappointed.
Indiana State Museum
Although my daughter's wedding was just last weekend, the photos we have seen thus far are beautifully stunning. In addition to that, I can say that Danielle was just the best to work with. She is very organized and pays great attention to detail. She helped us with the timeline of the day and she made the day of a blast for everyone. The Bride and Groom, Bridesmaids and Groomsmen were already a fun bunch, but she just got them and it was great to witness how much fun they were having with her. I can't wait to work with her again!
The Alexander Hotel
Danielle is truly an expert at her craft. I could not have been more pleased with our photos. She has a way of capturing a moment in time and turning it into a beautiful piece of Art. She is very professional and is soo easy to work with. She is very open to providing assistance in wedding planning too!
Indiana University Alumni Hall
“AMAZING!” is the only way I could begin to describe Danielle and her team. From our first consultation with Danielle, to the actual wedding day, everything was absolutely perfect! Danielle was so detailed about communicating with us on how to keep us on track for planning, what to wear for engagement pictures, and not to mention, helping us plan our timeline for the entire day of the wedding! Our engagement session was perfect, she taught us how to pose and made us feel extremely comfortable being in front of the camera – not to mention the pictures were BEAUTIFUL! However, nothing compares to how Danielle and her team made our wedding day perfect!! On our wedding day, the temperature was at least 100 degrees and we really wanted pictures outside (the ceremony and reception were indoors). Danielle coordinated everything perfectly and I think I was outside for 20 total minutes. Our day ran ahead of schedule because Danielle was a PRO at organizing our large bridal party and made sure that no one was suffering in the heat! I cannot thank Danielle and her team enough, because they were a large part of why our day was an absolute dream. She captured perfect pictures of my bridal details, our first look, the bridal party, the families, the ceremony, reception, and our guests enjoying their time! THANK YOU for giving us wedding photos we will cherish forever!!
Danielle Harris is an enthusiastic, phenomenal photographer -- our wedding photos exceeded all possible expectations! My husband and I chose her as our photographer because she works as a team with her husband, she responded within a MINUTE of me initially contacting her, and she was very clear and direct about how she works and the type of photography she will do. My husband and I were impressed with how organized and on top of things Danielle was at all points in the process. I respect that she has high expectations of herself, her clients, and her work. She did not disappoint!
We purchased the package that included an engagement session, which we didn't think we needed since we booked her 3-4 months before our wedding, and we had been engaged for several months already. The benefits of doing the engagement session cannot be understated -- we are so glad we did it! The experience gave us an opportunity to mutually understand each other. Never having had professional photo sessions before, this allowed us to understand how Danielle works and how to pose for the camera. Danielle was interested in us as people, not just clients, and she worked hard to get to know us and put us at ease.
The day of the wedding, Danielle was so enthusiastic and present in the moment that I still have people commenting on her enthusiasm 6 months after the wedding! She clearly loves what she does, and it shows in the quality of her work. She gave me her undivided attention and helped me navigate the very emotional build-up to the wedding service, ensuring that I was eating and drinking water, had used the restroom, and reassured me that everything else was going according to plan (I'm a control freak, so this was very helpful while I was confined to the Bride's room before the wedding).
During the wedding and reception, we barely noticed Danielle and her husband as they took photos. They obviously know what they are doing and how to blend in to get amazing shots! Danielle went above and beyond to creatively include all of our family members in photos and completely exceeded our expectations. Danielle was willing to do a variety of locations the day of our wedding and appreciated that we wanted her to take as many photos as possible. She had innovative ideas of where to pose us...including in the middle of a crosswalk at a red light downtown!
My husband said he didn't understand the value of good photographs until he saw our wedding photos -- they are simply fantastic. We were blessed to have Danielle as our photographer to capture such a special day.
The Avon Wedding Barn
Danielle was the best photographer I could have hoped to have shooting my wedding. Included in our package was an Engagement Session, which allowed my husband and I to get familiar with her and with her style of shooting which reinforced the choice we had made based on her website gallery. In the weeks leading up to our wedding day, Danielle was preparing to give birth to her son, and she made an extra effort to let me know when she'd be unreachable and when she'd be available.
