South Dakota Wedding Photographer and Videographer

I am Danielle Nicole, a South Dakota wedding photographer and Minnesota wedding photographer, along with offering South Dakota and Minnesota wedding videographer services as well, with over 6 years of  wedding experience.

I have a deep love for traveling and taking ordinary things and revealing their true beauty. Photography & filmmaking has been a huge part of my life since I received a barbie camcorder for Christmas when I was 5 and bought my own pink digital camera with my birthday money at the age of 8. I took photos and videos of EVERYTHING.

"Danielle reached out to me after having a very horrible experience with our origional wedding photographer, she offered us everything we could have ever wanted and more. She kept in touch with us throughout the months approaching and always had an answer for everything. She was unable to attend our event herself, but assured us that she had backups to her backups, and she did! They were incredible, we have only been able to see someof our day so far, but even that was 200+ photos (DELIVERED 4 DAYS AFTER WEDDING) that were absolutely breathtaking. We can't wait to see the rest, and 10/10 recommend."

"We hired Danielle for our wedding after our original photo/video team cancelled on us 6 months out. As stressful as it was, I’m so glad that happened because Danielle is AMAZING. She is truly one of the sweetest people I have ever met and her light and airy photos are stunning. She is very professional and organized. She loves what she does and it shows through her work. We all know posing for pictures is awkward sometimes, but Danielle made us and our bridal party feel comfortable on the wedding day and it shows in the photos just how much fun we had with her."
