kelowna & penticton wedding photographer

documentary wedding photography that will let you remember not only what it looked like, but how it felt.

I am a documentary wedding photographer from Kelowna BC. My desire is to create honest, intentional & timeless photographs that leave you with a feeling, a memory + a hint of nostalgia.

Hey, Glad you're here (: My name is Danika.

"DANIKA WAS THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO OUR WEDDING DAY! SHE FIT OUR VIBE PERFECTLY AND WAS SO EASY AND FUN TO BE AORUND. DANIKA JUST EMBRACED OUR AWKWARDNESS, RELIEVED ALL THE PRESSURE, & DELIVERED TO US THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS THAT CAPTURE EXACTLY WHO WE ARE AS A COUPLE. SO MANY OF OUR GUESTS COMMENTED ON HOW MUCH THEY LOVED SEEING DANIKA & HER SECOND SHOOTER JUST GETTING RIGHT INTO THE FUN AND ACTION AND IT WAS AS THOUGH THEY FIT RIGHT IN. SHE IS WORTH EVERY PENNY + MORE & IF YOU WANT PICTURES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL THE MOMENT, THEN SHE IS YOUR GAL!"

"I don’t even know where to begin, but in a nutshell hiring Danika was the best decision we made in the entire wedding planning process. Danika is the sweetest, and her passion for photography really shows in her work. We were absolutely blown away by our *abundant* photo gallery from our wedding. Highly HIGHLY recommend."

robyn + dillon

The way she captured our day brings us right back to the way we felt in the moment. We are so thankful to have the images that so perfectly captured not only the moments, but the feeling of our wedding. 

The video Pierre created was so far beyond our wildest expectations! We still can’t watch it without crying!

they were so delightful to have with us throughout the day! They made everyone feel comfortable and brought out laughs when they needed to, and disappeared to capture to most raw moments when they needed to!

"By the end of our engagement session she had us swimming in the Okanagan lake... and she was right there with us taking underwater pictures.  She went above and beyond by doing little things to make the experience even that much more special. Thank you so much Danika!"

"are you freaking serious!? these are unreal 😭😍😭😍😭😍😭😍😭😍 I literally am in love!"

"The most talented photographer I know. She is the ultimate down to earth, "captures you as you are" woman. Keeping in mind I am a fellow photographer and I can be quite particular when it comes to what I like. I was BLOWN AWAY. I had not liked photos of myself or my fiancee that much up until Danika captured US. She was adventurous, up for anything, accommodating, kind, and her work is just a quality that is a step above the rest. Couldn't sing her praises enough! Allow yourself the privilege to work with her. I would say top 3 in the Okanagan by far!"

rachel + mike

"...YOU END UP LEAVING WITH MORE THAN JUST EXCELLENT PHOTOS; YOU LEAVE WITH A NEW FRIEND. DANIKA IS EXCEPTIONAL IN EVERYTHING SHE DOES AND GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND TO MAKE A PERSONAL CONNECTION WITH EACH AND EVERY ONE OF HER CLIENTS. WHEN YOU HIRE DANIKA YOU AREN’T JUST HIRING A PHOTOGRAPHER, YOU’RE BRINGING A HUMAN FULL OF SUCH PURE JOY AND HAPPINESS THAT YOU END UP LEAVING WITH MORE THAN JUST EXCELLENT PHOTOS; YOU LEAVE WITH A NEW FRIEND."

Let's make a history book full of your life, with photographs that feel real. My commitment to you is to create and document beautiful + fun + emotional portraits of you two; genuine, joy filled candids; photos that make you giggle; family portraits to hang on your wall; emotion filled moments that may bring a wave of tears or a gush of laughter; my goal is to photograph your wedding day as it is.

I want you to look back on this day in 3 or 30 years and remember not only how it looked, but also by how it felt.
