Photographers

Mason Photography

My couples are fun, love the idea of bucking tradition for the sake of originality, and want to make sure there’s a photographer who’s ready to take on the challenge. My goal is simple: to tell those stories that haven’t been told, photograph people who’ve never been photographed, and ultimately cut the stress and materialism out of wedding planning. My couples don’t fit in a box, and I don’t try to put them in one.

Danielle Real Photography
