Dana was FANTASTIC. She did both our engagement photo shoot and our wedding day photos. For the engagement shots, she was so flexible and willing to meet us wherever we wanted. We ended up doing them at a family farm, so she got there early to scope out the place to see where the best shots would be. For the wedding, Dana and her other photographers did anything to get the shot. One of them was always around for every photo opportunity. Everybody who saw the photos have raved that we had such a great photographer!

She met with us prior to the wedding so that I could show her a binder of images I had cut out of different poses I wanted to do. She took notes & made sure to capture those photos on our wedding day. She also gave us her ideas for many of the shots, directing us into poses that worked really well. And, she made sure our shoulders were back, and hair was in place, and no cars were in the background.

When choosing a photographer for our wedding we knew it was such an important decision as these are the pictures you'll look back on to forever remember one of the most important days of your life. After our first meeting with Dana we knew she would be perfect and she was.. 110% amazing! We did a package with both engagements & wedding day pictures. Every interaction with her, she makes you feel so comfortable and have fun while doing it. She captures every moment to the fullest & doesn't miss a thing. The angles, lighting and waiting for those perfect faces from everyone makes every picture awesome! She even did a great job when we got our dogs into the pictures with us (which can be quite the task as they have minds of their own)!!
I would recommend Dana to anyone and know that we plan to use her for any other big events in our life!

Dana was absolutely amazing. It rained on our special day and she was out in the grass with umbrellas getting every last shot. She was also there without being present and noticeable. Whenever I thought something would be a great shot, I would turn around and she was there to capture it. Hire Dana and you will not be disappointed.

Dana Arndt Photography was referred to me by a friend of mine getting married the month before my husband and I. Dana and Allison did an awesome job on our wedding day! On a day when a bride's mind is in a million places at once, I appreciated the ease and time they put into making sure the photo taking stayed on schedule. Not a worry at all from me! From the first time meeting the two of them I could see how professional and organized they were, while at the same time, so fun, friendly, and relatable. Dana also shot our engagement shoot and bridal pics before the big day. She was totally open to our ideas and always had the best recommendations! Allison was the photographer at my friend’s wedding in which I was a bridesmaid. Same situation...always focused and so much fun. We are definitely happy we took the referral and are thrilled with all the wonderful memories they captured for us!

Dana and Allison did our wedding photography, and they were absolutely fantastic to work with. From the beginning, Dana was always very responsive to any questions or concerns I had. We met with her for our engagement photos, and knew then that we had nothing to worry about the day of the wedding. Dana is extremely professional and so easy to work with. She made two very camera shy people very comfortable. On the day of the wedding, her and Allison were amazing. They showed up on time, and took care of everything from there. We had the option of giving Dana a list of photos we would like, but just let her do her thing and she got everything we could have wanted. They documented the evening in the least-obtrusive way possible. Actually we've even talked about how little we noticed them, but still have so many pictures. She also has an insanely quick turnaround time for getting your photos back to you. If you are in search of a photographer who you can completely trust and get phenomenal photos, book them!

Dana and her crew were so great before AND on the day of my wedding! She always answered e-mail and would answer questions promptly. I sent her a lot of shots/poses I liked and she brought those with her on the wedding day. She was fun to work with, many of my family members commented on how her and her partner were so professional and easy going. She has a great personality! We loved every picture we got back, and the fact that it only took about 2 weeks to get them!

Dana Arndt Photography made our day so special. From the very beginning, Dana Arndt and company took such good care of us, paying attention to small detail for the entire day. It turned out to be a beautiful day and DAP made it that way! They asked us exactly what we were looking for and followed through with their product that they gave us. Our wedding photos turned out absolutely beautiful, ensuring that this was a day we will never forget! I hope I never get married again, but if I do, I would choose Dana Arndt Photography once again! They were so professional, so courteous, and so flawless. Thank you DAP!!!!

Dana and her sister were SO EASY to work with throughout our entire engagement and especially on the wedding day. They were flexible in scheduling our engagement session and bridal portraits, and they were so helpful in all occasions. On the wedding day, all of the guests remarked on how they seemed like they were everywhere at once! The two of them really got some great photos of every event and every person at the wedding, and I really appreciated that since I couldn't be everywhere at once! They were in the action, but they were very professional about it. They stood back, but they shot everything very well.

The professionalism outside of the events was also appreciated. When I contacted Dana just for silly questions, she emailed back the same day, every single time. She also delivered pictures for our engagement and for the bridal portraits within a week, and she had our entire wedding/rehearsal dinner pictures to us within about a month.

They offered a great service, and we are SO HAPPY with our photography choice. I had heard from other brides that the photographer is probably one of the most important vendors on that big day because you'll keep those photos forever, and the memories are in the photos. Dana Arndt Photography definitely was the best choice we made, and now we can look back at all of the pictures and witness the whole entire event, even if we couldn't see it firsthand that day. They did a great job, and I definitely recommend them!

I used Dana Arndt Photography (DAP) for my engagement & wedding photography. I literally contacted about 20 photographers & DAP was by far the most professional & had the best prices for the level of photography I wanted.

Dana herself shot my engagement pictures. She is super sweet, laid back & very professional. My fiance & I brought several props to use & Dana helped incorporate them into our pictures. She gave great directions on how to stand & where to look. We really enjoyed our time with her & the engagement pictures turned out really well.

For the actual wedding, Dana sent two of her photographers, Jenn & Bailey. I did not meet them until the "big day" but I did talk to Jenn before hand by email. They were both very sweet & were fun to be around. My guests said every time they looked up, Jenn & Bailey were there taking a picture. They seriously seemed to be everywhere at once! I was really impressed with how attentive they both were & how on top of everything they were. I have only seen a preview of my pictures from the wedding so far, but they look so nice. I tend to get really red in the face when I get nervous/excited, & somehow they made me look normal in the pictures, which I REALLY appreciated.

My uneducated analysis of all three of their photography styles is that they all have a slight artistic slant, but not to the point that it doesn't look like wedding photography. I guess what I'm trying to say is, the pictures don't look like they were taken by just anyone with a nice camera. They look professional & are exactly what I was hoping for.

From before we booked until now Dana & Jenn have both been very prompt with returning emails & calls (which is a rarity when dealing with small businesses; several of my other wedding vendors were nowhere near as responsive & professional!). Their level of responsiveness & professionalism made me feel they were on top of their game, which made me have no worries about our photography.

I planned my wedding from out of town and I was always able to get in touch with Dana if need be. We looked around at several photographers in the area and they definitely had the best prices, which was important since we were paying for everything. Dana was our engagement Session photographer and she was great, especially with how awkward we were. We couldn't stop laughing and she just rolled with it. Alison was our photographer on wedding day and the photos came out beautiful. We got them within 2 and a half weeks after the wedding! Couldn't believe it. Highly recommended!!!

Dana and her sister Allison were simply amazing to work with. They made my husband and I feel completely comfortable every step of the way, and our families loved them as well. Of all the vendors we worked with for our wedding, we were most pleased with our decision to work with DAP. Most importantly, our photographs are stunning! They capture everything we could hope for. My mother put in many hours of work crafting decorations and other small touches, and our photographs reflect that as well as all the wonderful people we were able to get together for our wedding. Anyone would be lucky to work with these ladies!

We just received our wedding photos and are thrilled with them!!!
Dana and Allison did an amazing job, they are the nicest people to work with, and nothing was too much bother.
They are so professional and blended in with everyone during the event.
We don’t know how they managed to capture everyone in such a relaxed manner – even the formal family photos! The photographs truly show the atmosphere of our ‘Special Day”.
We cannot thank them enough for giving us memories we will treasure forever!

Dana and Allison did an absolutely wonderful job for us! We were absolutely thrilled with their services and have gotten so many nice compliments on our pictures. I truly could not have asked for more. Dana was very helpful throughout the entire planning process. We signed a contract with them almost a year in advance, but she was always quick to respond when I had a question or anything that came up along the way. I thought it was really helpful that they allowed us to put together our own package, and it came at an incredible value. Dana and Allison are both so nice and fit in perfectly with our group! They made everyone feel incredibly comfortable. Our pictures were absolutely beautiful and I cannot say enough about the quality of service we received.

Dana and Alison were such a calming presence on my wedding day! Every shot was taken that I could of ever wanted without having to give Dana any kind of direction. She was very easy to communicate with and the turn around time for the FABULOUS pictures was super fast! I loved how at ease Dana always was making myself, my groom, our wedding party and guests so comfortable. At the actually reception I truly forgot she was there but we have such amazing shots of everyone having a fantastic time! One of my favorite pictures was taken at our reception site and numerous friends and family have commented on how beautiful it is and how it should be in a magazine (it SHOULD thanks to the artist!)! Thank you again Dana for capturing every moment we have in our memory on a camera so we can re live this day over and over!!!!

Dana was an amazing photographer to work with. First of all, she included engagement pictures in the contract, which was really great. She helped us pick an awesome location for the shoot and made sure to take a lot of the pictures we requested. The pictures were so good that we used them on our save the date cards.

On the day of the wedding she brought an assistant so that we wouldn't miss a moment. She was always available to take pictures when we wanted some ones that were not on the list. They were also really great at being there to capture the moment without being noticed. Dana was also accomidating when we wanted to change out some things in the package. The pictures turned out amazing! She even managed to get everyone to smile for the family pictures.

I would highly recommend Dana!
