I work and live with passion. I love people and connecting with them. My goal is to share all my
energy and creativity through my work as well in my personal life. Connecting with my surrounding is so important that the two things are, in fact, inseparable!
My commitment is not only professional it is also personal.

My style is playful, intimate, contemporary and glamorous. I like to blend style, romance, glamour when posing and a touch of photojournalism to tell your story capturing your true self, the passion, the emotions,
the energy and every detail of your special day.


I love traveling...working in new locations always gives me an amazing enthusiasm and inspiration. I look forward to travel with you, may be in Hawaii, or simply in our own town...
each journey is a treasured experience, a quest to discover emotion in every little moment and make it last a lifetime through my images. Read less

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, High Resolution Images, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards, Video Montage
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Digital retouching and artsy editing are complementary when ordering an art book.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes, I have 10 years experience working in any season and any lighting situations. I have top of the line equipment that can perform well in any lighting situation.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital.
How many photographers do you work with?
I usually have a second shooter which is always a professional photographer. I don't want to baby sit and telling my associates what to shoot... A pro knows already what to look for during a wedding and I always hire someone that works in a style similar to mine.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
YES! Not only, I offer a free engagement session, because I think it's very important you get to know me before the wedding and feel at ease in front of my camera. When I can I also attend rehearsals. I love to help out for the event recommending vendors and sharing ideas for the big day.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never. I love to give all my attention to my couples. If I start working at 1pm I don't even like to book a morning photo shoot. I like to relax, concentrate and prepare for the event and get there a bit earlier just in case.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes, so far it has never happened but I know many many talented photographers that could help out in a moment of crisis. Our California photographers community is awesome.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I bring 3 cameras (Canon), 5 different senses, you'll see me carrying them all on me, one on the right shoulder, one on the right and one around my neck! Call me crazy, but I like to have all my different lenses available for capturing the shots the right way.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Sure. Having three cameras makes me feel safe.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
I charge by the hour.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
My current rate for Extra hours is $400.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Clients know that me and my associate work really hard. I don't expect to take 30 minutes break for a meal. I do like to eat something during the day as the energy needs to be always at top level. The best time for a photographer to eat is when the bride and groom are eating.. nothing much happens then. I usually take 10-15 minutes to eat and then I am back shooting, when you are in that 'capturing the mode' moment, you can just sign off... the best is to be able to eat in the same room where the reception is taking place so we have our camera handy for the unexpected.
Do you charge for travel?
Yes, outside Santa Clara County.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
aproximately 3/4 weeks after the wedding you will have your gallery online prep to go along with a complimentary online slideshow with my favorites from the wedding.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Online viewing. You can also order a proof album that can be ordered as soon as the online proofs are available.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
If you order a proof book it's yours to keep. Your online gallery expires three months after the release date but you can renew for a small fee.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, it's in my contract. I like to show off my beautiful couples on my blog, website and facebook pages... But if you are somehow uncomfortable or against it, we can change the wording on the agreement and I will respect your request for privacy.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes, they are available for purchase.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes. Viewing and purchase, and you can share the link with all your guests and family all over the world.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I proudly and personally design my favorite line, the ART BOOKS, the magazine style photo spreads. Every album is unique, it's another way to make your wedding even more special. And can make smaller versions as parent albums. Simpler one photo per page albums are also available.
When will the client get the final album?
It depends on their promptness to reply to my emails :) The design work can take between 2 to 4 weeks, production takes another 3-4 weeks.

Ciao Daniela,

I wanted to write you a note to say thank you for the work you have done, for the moments spent with you and also for who you are. As Ernesto have already explained, we are sorry to have taken so long to answer you. Indeed, with the move, we had no internet, which somewhat complicates things:)

But I wanted to write you personally to thank you for all those moments spent with you during this day. It was a chance for me because with you I feel confident. Thanks to you, it was a pleasure to take these photos ... I had fun ... even on the rocks :) besides these pictures are really beautiful.

We look forward to reviewing all the photos and see the albums.Daniela thank you for your work! We love what you did ... You're really talented and you bring something extra to each photo ....

I still wanted to tell you that you are exceptional as a person and as a professional and I hope to see you again one day ...

Take care ...

Tenderness,

And, sorry for my bad english... I try.... : )

Daniela is an amazing photographer. She is extremley talented and creative.
The engagement pictures and wedding photos of my daughter's wedding are absolutely gorgeous. The slide show Daniela surprised us with still brings me to tears.
Daniela took formal photos, focused on the details and inlcuded many many candid shots. I have so many excellent choices that it is difficult to make selctions for my parents photo album. They are all stunning.....
I highly recommend Daniela for any occasion you would need a photographer.

Daniela is awesome to work with. I got the idea to do a boudoir session as a wedding gift for my husband and came across Daniela's site. She made me feel totally comfortable and the pictures came out beautifully. My husband loved the pics!

I would definitely recommend Daniela. She is professional, yet easy going, has a great personality and made me feel at ease. She even agreed to work out with me right before our last meeting to pick out photos, so I could get in shape for the wedding day. And, while she was about to go on vacation while my album was being made, she made sure I got the album in time to give to my husband for our wedding. Daniela's awesome and I would definitely recommend her to anyone i know.

Daniela was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is obviously very passionate about what she does which shows in the end product. I found her to be very responsive. Each time I contacted her I would receive a response within a couple of days at most. She is also extremely professional. We are very pleased with the wide variety of photos she took and her ability to put people at ease ensured that she took beautiful candid and posed pictures of all of our family and friends. She is also very much an artist and captured the day and days leading up beautifully. We feel that we could not have made a better choice in photographers. We look forward to working with her again to photograph other life stages.

Daniela is very artsy and fun to be around. She has a great flair for what looks good and what needs to be done. She is not your traditional photographer, but produces incredible pictures. I would recommend looking through her pictures to see if you like her style. My husband and I were very happy with how everything turned out. Since we took some pictures in the middle of vineyards in the bright sun I was worried about lighting, but Daniela is awesome. She can adjust the lighting, change the mood, etc. If you have the money she is worth it!

Through my experience of planning a wedding I have realized that choosing an excellent photographer for your wedding is one of the most important things because photos last a lifetime. I originally booked a photographer through a wedding fair that I went to. The way that company worked was that you meet with the two owners of the company, tell them what you are looking for and then they match you with the ‘perfect’ photographer based on your style and personality. I had doubts about it especially when I asked to see sample work of the photographer that they were selecting for me and was emailed 8 pictures. I immediately started searching for a new photographer and that’s when I came across Daniela Degrassi’s website. I instantly knew that this was the kind of photographer I wanted for my wedding. I contacted her just a couple of months before our wedding and luckily she was available. My husband and I met with her soon after and just fell in love with her and her work. She showed us a ton of pictures and albums which we were very impressed with. She is so creative and knows exactly how to capture the moment in a photo. I think her prices are great for the quality you get. In her wedding packages you get a complimentary engagement session which I thought was great because it gives you a chance to work together so you are more comfortable on your wedding day. Daniela is very fun to work with and she makes you feel very comfortable. We highly recommend Daniela!

My friend used Daniela for his wedding and I thought the pictures were very natural and candid. When my fiance and I met with Daniela we decided very quickly to work with her. She was very flexible in working out a package that would we were happy with. She offered an engagement photo session as part of the package which allowed us to see how she could portray us in the best light. She was very easy to work with and guided us to work with her thoughout the shoot. It was quite fun. Needless to say the photos were absolutely fabulous!!! At the wedding Daniela was really good at trying to keep the guests at bay while she was trying to get photos. It was a really nice day in June and many of the guest were hanging out in the garden of the church and would not leave. Daniela created a beautiful memory book with a plexiglass cover to protect the cover photo. My husband and I were speechless as the the book told a story of our day. She also included some family photos that we also took with her over the holidays.

It has been 8 months and I continue to love my memory book. Some of our friends that are in the graphic design business were quite impressed with her artistic design using the photos. Choosing the right photographer is the most important decision for a wedding.

Definitely recommend her. Easy to talk to and very personable. The price might shock you in the beginning but her work is impeccable and professional. Almost all of the pictures she took wether it was posing or just out of the blue, all came out perfectly.

Daniela was amazing! Her photos are so unique and have a photo-journalistic type style. She really knows how to capture moments, intimacy, and exquisite details. Lots of people at our wedding commented how much they liked her during the event, and when we all saw the pictures she got even more compliments. She came recommended to me by my boss, who also was extremely pleased with how she captured his wedding. And her prices are very reasonable -- especially for the Bay Area. She created a picture DVD set to music that we selected and we're overjoyed with it. The way she set each frame to match the music beats and lyrics is extraordinary. We also LOVE the 3-minute montage she put together online for us to share with our friends & family. It's like a slide show set to music and it really captures the joy, beauty & emotion of our special day. Daniela truly is a very talented artist. You will be very happy if you hire her!

I wanted our wedding photo's to be unique and lifestyle driven. Daniela captured the true essence of our wedding day. Not only were the pictures stunning but also she was able to capture the special moments of our wedding guest, table setting and of course the bride and groom. Nothing could have prepared me for her unveiling of the completed wedding album. It was truly breath taking! Daniela has an amazing eye for detail, is professional, friendly and worked great with our caterer Fork & Spoon. If you’re looking for a unique and lifestyle wedding album...Daniela Degrassi is the person I recommend.
