I began my journey with photography many years ago photographing with traditional film and spending hours in the darkroom developing my creations. I became a passionate teller of stories, photographing memories that truly matter, for people that really care.
Based out of Romford, Essex I have worked as a professional photographer for 6 years now and in 2014 I embarked on my journey as Danielle Smith Photography. I truly believe this was the best decision I have ever made. Capturing those precious moments that tell a story of love and happiness and life, whether it be a wedding, a lifestyle family session or a newborn photo shoot is the most rewarding thing I have ever done. I get to work with the most amazing couples, families and their little cherubs at the happiest times of their lives. The joy and excitement at such times is an incredible thing to be a part of. I am so truly grateful for each and every wedding, baby and family I am lucky enough to meet and photograph!
Working with me
Being a great creative documentary photographer is more than just capturing what is happening. It is about translating something completely intangible, from wild celebration to quiet joy, true romance and euphoric atmosphere into a photograph. It is about taking a step back and allowing character and individuality to thrive; it is also to step in with creative direction when needed. This balance requires finesse, compassion, creativity and above all kindness and consideration.
I love creating relationships with my clients and often we end up keeping in touch over the years. I often follow new chapters in their lives, documenting their wedding, their first born baby, and their family as it grows in time. I value authenticity, friendship and connection. Above all, I want to capture lasting memories for you and your family; a forever reminder of a beautiful time in your life and for you to enjoy the experience to it’s fullest.
