Hello! Thanks for taking a moment to stop by my website. My name is Daniella Koontz and I am the owner of Koontz Photography. I am your personal point of contact from beginning to end. This means I will be here to answer all your questions, I’ll be the one who photographs you, and the one who edits your images. So, thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about me.
Photography has been a life-long passion of mine. With over 25 years behind the lens, I have been there during the days of film and experienced the evolution from film to digital. I am still constantly learning new things to get the best results for you.
My purpose is to help you focus on the best parts of your life, your family and your friends. I accomplish this by telling your story through photojournalistic photography, candid photos, and relaxed portraiture. Every portrait session or wedding is a unique and fun experience that I enjoy being a part of.
Besides the technical skills that I've developed over time; I can relate to a client's needs on multiple levels. Besides having the experience and knowledge from over 15 years of owning my own business, I bring a lot of my personal experience into each of my sessions.
Being a wife, I’ve been in your shoes either planning a wedding or photos with my family, so I understand the stress of organizing it all. When you book with me, you are getting more than someone to “press a button”, you are investing in a friend. I will be there next to you every step of the way, from choosing outfits, picking out gorgeous locations, to helping you wrangle family, friends, and pets.
Being a mother has taught me patience, organizational skills, and has trained me to become a better problem solver. I always strive to make the experience fun for the entire family. I will do anything to make your children feel at ease, even pulling out my killer Blue’s Clues impression. But don’t take it from me, here is what some of my past clients have said:
“Daniella was so patient with my little ones and didn’t give up until she found the perfect pictures. We are extremely happy with her service and recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing, talented, and caring photographer.” -Deidra J.
“Daniella really takes her time with the kids and makes sure to get great photos of them. We cannot recommend her enough. She will be a part of our family for years to come!” - Kristen L.
“Daniella produces beautiful photos no matter the circumstances. This past year my son just turned two and during our family photos he was not a happy camper, but Daniella handled him amazingly. By the end of the session, he was sitting with her and holding her hand.” - Tammy A.
I want you to have amazing memories to look back on in picture, not just photos of family, but photos of you with your family!
When it comes to relaxation and fun, I love getting to experience life all over again through the eyes of my children. I mean, who doesn't love board games, crafting, and going to museums? I'm sort of a nerd, so all of those things are right up my alley! My family and I love costumes, face painting, scavenger hunts, anime, and we love traveling to new places. I enjoy working with people who are also full of love for life. Quirky, unique, nerdy - I’m all for it!
Besides photographing weddings and portraits, I've also done a lot of other work including photographing musicians, body painting, and cosplay. These photos have been internationally published in magazines, books, and merchandise across the world. But by far, my favorite accomplishments have been being published by the Smithsonian, as well as being included in one of their traveling exhibits.
So, if you are looking for a creative professional who can get the job done and have fun doing so, you've found me! My mission is to capture the moments that captivate your heart.
In addition to photography, I also offer graphic design to help you brand your business. For more help with organizing your brand and with marketing - I can assist you through KimberlyCline.com
