Daniela was absolutely amazing to work with. I searched for the perfect photographer with my mom and from the moment we met Daniela she was just amazing. We clicked and I knew she would be perfect for my wedding. After seeing her gorgeous albums and her work I couldn't have been more anxious to sign a contract. She is such a sweet person and she was so lovely to work with. My wife and I weren't always the easiest to manage I'm sure and she never missed a beat. She was professional and friendly and just a true artist. For our engagement session she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. For the wedding, she stayed calm while literally everyone else was in panic mode. I could just look over to Daniela and be reminded that this day isn't about how everyone's hair looks or if the colors turned out right. It was more meaningful and Daniela worked to capture those sincere moments. I cannot wait to see our photos because I have all the faith in the world they will be beautiful. My wife and I are not the most romantic couple... we are more playful and silly but we chose Daniela because the way she shoots and edits, we knew she would capture the softer side of us. Thank you Daniela for being so kind and understanding while working with us! We were blessed to have you for our wedding xoxo

We choose Daniela Cardili to photograph our wedding because we had seen some of her work before and we were impressed by it.
Daniela is very talented, knowledgeable, attentive and personable. She uses all the best equipment and her product and service are of high-quality.
She captured all the moments you would wish at a wedding. Our photos are very natural. She also made our families and friends very comfortable the entire time.
We couldn't be happier with our photos. I just love every one of our 728 pictures and it was really hard to pick which ones I want to put on the Wedding Album. She is a pleasure to work with and her photographs are stunning!
We highly recommend her because there was not one moment of our wedding day that she didn't capture it.
Thank you for making our day so special and memorable!

Picking the photographer was the only real assignment my now wife gave to me, but we both agreed it was the most important vendor. I spent hours and hours looking at photographers and their styles online. At one point I had a spreadsheet with about 50 photographers rated and profiled. After figuring out exactly the style we were interested in, I narrowed it down to three to meet and get pricing from, and Daniela Hood was at the top of my list based on the albums on her website. She wasn't as well known as some of the other photographers we met with, but her pictures spoke for themselves, and we figured she'd be one of the most expensive (she wasn't at all). After meeting with photographers, Daniela's personality was our favorite, and her pricing was really reasonable and fair. It was the easiest decision because we liked her photos the best too, and we are thrilled we picked her. She has a very artistic documentary style that tells the story of your entire wedding day, so you can remember it forever. Her photos of us were just as beautiful as the albums she has on her website, if not more so. We took photos on Lasalle Street, in a small park next to the Art Museum, and then at the Museum of Contemporary Art where our ceremony and reception were. They were all amazing, and she made it really easy to be natural in front of the camera. Instead of feeling uncomfortable or like we were posing, she had us be natural (and kiss a lot :-) After 3 hours of photos around town (our choice) we were still relaxed and happy, and ready to be married. We would recommend Daniela as a better alternative to the expensive well-known studious with high priced photographers. Daniela is better.

D. Hood ~ wonderful! I am so impressed with her work and the price is great. Daniela was very flexible. The bride/groom had to reschedule the engagement shot twice because of a move and a death in the family, Daniela was very understanding. The engagement pictures turned out beautifully! Can't wait to see the wedding pictures!

We can't say enough about our wedding photographs ... they are simply stunning!!! Daniela flew all the way from Chicago to Maui to help capture our wonderful day and she did it with the true eye of an artist. We are wedding photographers ourselves by profession, so obviously this was not a light choice for us. It was a difficult thought to give up control and let someone else capture the day, but with our choice of Daniela we never once worried, knowing that she would capture every moment and detail in the same fashion we would! For us - obviously - photography was the MOST important part of our wedding day and there is no one else we would have trusted it to. We highly recommend Daniela Cardili - she is amazing!!

Daniela was the absolute best investment that we could have made for our big day! She was not only a fabulous photographer, which you can see from her pictures, but she was also professional and knew exactly what we were looking for.

She captured every moment of our big day perfectly. The best part is that she got shots of the little things that we didn't see. The details we might have missed if not for her snapping those shots.

I highly recommend booking Daniela for you big day! It will be one of the best decisions to you make, next to saying 'I Do'.

I researched countless numbers of photographers and when we chose Daniela because she had the ability to capture the couple and wedding in an artistic photojournalistic style.

Our wedding was in downtown Chicago and much of her experience was capturing weddings in Chicago, so we felt comfortable with her. She gave great ideas for both rain or sunshine spots. We did not do an engagement session and I liked the fact that she did not force this on us. Our ceremony was at St. Vincent DePaul in Lincoln Park and our reception was at the Omni Chicago. She captured many beautiful moments at the church, I especially liked some getting-ready photos in the bridal room of the church and the photos on the steps outside the church. We traveled to the Civic Opera House, LaSalle Street and the gardens next to the Art Museum. The photos all turned out beautiful in these three spots. She also had a second photographer with us the entire 10 hours (which was plenty of time to capture the necessary and memorable moments of the day).
Daniela was very easy to work with throughout the process. I never had issues getting a hold of her. She worked with me on the price of the photo package (it's worth the price for a guarantee of quality because it's your one special day and I did not want to chance it with a company like George Street).

She guides you with poses and makes sure the emotions of that day are captured. She also makes incredibly beautiful albums, which we are holding off on purchasing for a few months (they are made in Italy and high quality).

My only criticism would be that there were very few photos of the guests. I understand the day is about our wedding and the bride and groom, but I wish that more of our guests were captured in the photos seeing that there were two photographers.
