let me tell you about myself.
I think we are going to be good friends.
My name is Delaney. I have worked in the wedding industry for 7 years. I'm passionate about helping the folks around me connect to themselves and their people. My whole goal is to help my clients create an environment where I can document things as they are happening.
I have always felt awkward and insecure in front of the camera. I want to encourage my couples to feel like themselves. I invest in the people that I photograph. I want my clients to feel my support before, during, and after the wedding.
I’m a dreamer. I love creating meaning, laughing, and learning about the people I work with. When we meet, I can promise you 2 things - I will turn a joke into a deep conversation in seconds, and I am 100% on your team to create your vision with you.
My goal as a photographer is to serve my clients, and that makes me excited. I hope to always be learning about what makes my clients feel loved and cared for. Your wedding day isn't a performance. It is about so much more than the photos. I want to help you reflect and plan a day that will allow you to be present and open.
I want my couples to be caught up in the moment and forget that I am documenting them. I want to fade into the background. My work focuses on connection, people, light, and hopefully a little bit of humor.
I invest in the people that I photograph. I care about how you are doing, not only because it influences the work we make, it also influences the way you feel when you go home and how you think of this time in your life later down the line.
If you spent time reading all of this, thanks for taking a deeper look into my "why." I take every part of me into a wedding day, a family session, and really everything I do. I hope you will bring every part of yourself too. Authenticity is the goal.
If you decide that we are a good fit for each other, you can head to the inquiry page, if not, thank you for spending time here, I still want to be your friend and would love to point you in a direction that is a better fit for you!

What do you mean when you say "film?"
I take digital and film photographs. To document "on film," means a specific way of taking a photograph. To save you from me getting all sciencey and fun, trust the process with me. I send my rolls of film out to a developer who processes and scans the images we make. They send the scanned images back to me and then I upload them into your final gallery.
Film photography is close to my heart. I started my journey in photography at the ripe age of 8. In college, I spent a lot of time in the dark room (where you develop and enlarge negatives (oops got a little technical). I can still smell the chemicals now! All of the images in the grid above are film photographs! Each image is one of a kind. Film has become one of my favorite aspects of my business. If you are looking for perfection, it might not be me, but what you see above is real moments in time, captured intentionally, with a lot of care.
We might be a good fit if you:
- Are having a non-traditional wedding
- Are focused on connection and experience
- Are interested in documentary style photography
- Don't take life too seriously
- Want to focus on candid moments
- Want to be present on your wedding day
