Your wedding photos should tell the story of your day by blending candid moments with artistic portraits. My name is Dana Brandt and I'm the owner and photographer at Happily Ever After Photography in Woodstock, Illinois.
I've worked with hundreds of clients over the years and each of their stories are as unique as they are. Bringing out those stories through each photo is what I love about my job. So much can be told about a moment in time from just a single image, and being able to capture those memories is a true honor.
Having fun and laughing is my way of getting to know my clients, making them feel comfortable and bringing out the natural smiles. I get absolutely giddy when I am taking photos, and love to make the photography process easy and upbeat. I care for all of my clients like they're my family, and my goal is their happiness.

Dana gets 10 stars in my book! She is a fantastic photographer who really knows how to put people at ease and get the right shot. We worked with her for our Engagement Shots, our Wedding Shots and I even did a Boudoir session with her. Everything that she did was fantastic and I couldn't be happier with the results. Do not hesitate to work with Happily Ever After Photography. It was a great experience, all around!

Dana is an amazing photographer! Her energy is through the roof and she totally "gets it". By that I mean she gets the job done as quickly as you want and the pictures are to die for. Sometimes photographers will carry on and on and on and lose your bridal parties attention, but not with Dana. Our groomsmen were loving her! And that was important to us. We paid extra to have her assistant, Ashley, join too which is a must. Ashley is super professional and can really get children to concentrate on smiling for the camera! It was great. There is not one bad thing I can say about Dana and her crew - they are spectacular! Book them!!

Dana did an amazing job at our wedding on 4/25/14! On a day that can be very stressful to some brides I found that Dana's easy going personality was a breath of fresh air. Dana was easy to get a hold of and very personable. I was very pleased with how quick she got our photos back to us along with a full release. I would recommend her services to anyone and everyone ( my younger sister also used her services). Thanks again!!

Dana did a absolutely wonderful job at our wedding! She listened to everything i had to say and comment on and made sure she did her best to get everything I wanted. She's extremely easy going and makes you comfortable the second you sit down with her, another reason why I would refer her to anyone I know. I received my pictures a few weeks ago and absolutely love them. Our couples shots were beyond amazing I love them so much! She really made sure at the reception to get shots of all the guests and very pleased she did. She just proves you can get great photography at an affordable price :) Will be seeing you again Dana (Hopefully to get some family shots in the nice weather outside)! Thanks again for everything!
