About me

Whether you've always dreamt of eloping on a mountain top or on a beach, I am here to document your big day. I am not just a photographer and will give you the resources and tools to help bring your special day together. I offer all of my couples my planning guide that has area specific information along with sample timelines that help put people at ease with the planning process. 

Because you deserve to have the most adventurous, authentic, true to yourselves wedding.

no worries... i got you and i am here to help walk you through every step of the planning process. eloping shouldn't be stressful and it should be an experience that is unique to you. 

There's nothing more awkward than stepping in front of a camera with a stranger... trust me I know. . What I love most is giving couples the opportunity to CONNECT to one another throughout their big day and be able to have authentic moments together. How do I do that? We move... we move a lot and we walk and hug and dance. I believe that your feelings towards your photos are immensely attached to the experience you had taking them. 

Our style

"The best thing my husband and I did for our small wedding in Glacier National Park was hire Danielle as our photographer. If you're in the market for a photographer, I promise you would regret not hiring Danielle Mullens - DO IT ALREADY!!!"

Heyyyy there.. I'm Danielle! A thirty something year old mother of two, wife and photographer. I photograph couples all over the state of Montana and travel as well! In 2022 alone, I photographed 32 couples wedding days ranging from 10 mile hikes to Iceberg Lake to days spent exploring Grand Teton National Park. I put over 41,000 miles on my car alone in the year 2022. 

I believe your wedding day should speak to who you are as a couple and that you can have and are deserving of the wedding day experience you've always dreamed of. Whether that's hiking up a Colorado mountainside, backpacking in the Rocky Mountains, skiing down the slopes of Big Sky or strolling down Cannon Beach in Oregon. I believe you are 100% deserving of the day you truly want. No matter how big or intimate you want your wedding day experience to be I want you to feel empowered, confident and excited about your wedding.

FOUNDEr, LEAD photographer:

my travel Bucketlist: 

My work has been featured all over and I feel HONORED when my work gets published. What makes a wedding or elopement publishable? Honestly, it's how the day comes together as a whole. It's not just the photographer or florist. It's oftentimes the story that comes with the day and how unique the wedding day is.  Want your wedding published or featured? Reach out to me and we can chat!
