My name is Daniella Koontz and I am the owner of Koontz Photography. I am your personal point of contact. I will be the one you speak to, the one who photographs you, and the one who edits your images. I aim to provide a hassle-free experience from beginning to end.
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 a combination of photojournalistic photography, candid photos, and relaxed portraiture. My mission is to capture the moments that captivate your heart.
With over 15 years of experience, my favorite accomplishments have been being published by the Smithsonian, as well as being included in one of their traveling exhibits. I've also really enjoyed my time working with bands and other creative artists.
In my personal life, my greatest joy is being a mother. 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! I enjoy working with people who are full of love for life. Quirky, unique, nerdy - I’m all for it!
Being a mother has really taught me to see the beauty in everyday life. The interactions between people inspire me each and every day, and I am up for any challenges that come along with it. Being a mother has helped train me to become a natural problem solver. 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 members and pets.
On your wedding day, I’ll be there to remind you to breathe, make sure your hair is in place, make sure you stay hydrated, show you how to hold your bouquet, pin the boutonnière on the groomsmen, I will make sure we stay on schedule, help guide you as to what to do next, and be a source of encouragement throughout your day. It’s more than a photo that I’m taking, it’s a memory I’m preserving - and I want only the best memories for you.
When planning your engagement session, a great thing to think about are some of your favorite hobbies. What are some of yours? I love painting. Right now I mostly do watercolors, but I have also done face and body art as well as oil painting. I love incorporating elements of your lives into your photo experience. I'm super excited to get to know more about you. I want to hear all about how you met, how the proposal went, what you guys do for fun, and if you have any pets. So, if you are looking for a creative professional who can get the job done and have fun doing so, you've found me!
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
