The story of a photographer

I can remember taking pictures since my mother first brought home a camera. She was wanting to capture every moment she could with us growing up, and she simply did. I followed behind slowly in her footsteps, picking up a camera whenever I could and getting in to classes that taught the art. Now at 37, it has become my life, and I could not be more thankful. My name is Dani Colman, and I would love to tell your story through my lens.

I am an Arizona-based photographer who loves the adventure in photography and capturing you in those unique places with the most memorable moments with your loved ones. I have been a hobbyist in my trade since before Instagram was a thing and throughout the years have been perfecting my craft with my own family and loved ones. My goal behind the lens is to create the magic that comes naturally to you and your partner and showcase it in its most unique and beautiful way. Going to that spot that is just for you two, sitting at a cafe just simply enjoying one's company, or adventuring for the day to see where life leads is you what I want to capture. You, in your element, with the ones you love.

When it comes to style, I am unique to your day. The vibes, the ambiance, and the feel will flow through the images created. You can see that through my galleries and I love that I can create art specifically to the distinctive, unrepeatable love that each of you show with one another.

I am an Arizona native, born and raised in CaveCreek. I left there when I was 18 to experience life and I did just that. Traveled through South America and Europe before settling back down to my roots, beautiful Arizona. My husband and I currently reside in Yuma, where we have a little homestead with our three children. Family adventures are a must every week as we love exploring new destinations and it gives me the opportunity to pick up my camera and try out new ideas.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me! I would love nothing more than to be your photographer and learn about your story too!
