Professional photography isnt about gimmicks or tricks like anything wonderful, it is a mix of talent, hard work, and experience. I seek constantly to be open to people and moments, to see the details that others might miss, and to reveal the essence of my subjects in a way that is open, honest, and fun.
24 amazing years behind the lens has taught me a lot, making me more professional and better equipped to photograph the complexities of big events and little moments. I am a clear and.. straightforward communicator with the ability to know when to be where during an event. I have captured the look and feel of over 600 weddings and events, creating great art that showcases real people in their most precious times.
Shooting wedding and commitment ceremonies, bar and bat mitzvahs, as well as world travel, has given me a sensitivity to differing cultures, rituals and events that carry over to my portraits, pet photography, and even corporate work. Mixing a documentary journalistic style with fashion while including more traditional coverage ensures my images are both timeless and contemporary.
As a business-woman living in the most diverse zip code in the USA, 98118, I am also active in The Greater Seattle Business Association, The Seattle Professional Photographers Association and The Rainier Chamber of Commerce.
My wife Judy and I got married in 2005 and we used Dani Weiss Photography for our wedding. She was professional and well organized. The work she has done has gotten compliments from multiple people. Dani was a pleasure, and would recommend her to anyone. Michael Faber Atlanta, GA

We used Dani as our Wedding Photographer in 2006 and are very happy with her and our photos. From the moment we got in touch with Dani- she was so helpful and knowledgeable and we felt that she had a vision of what we were wanting. She was more expensive then many of the other photographers we looked into, and feel she was definitely worth her price. At the events- she was amazing. We had our ceremony with immediate family only at a park in the middle of the week and then had our reception with lots of family and friends over the weekend at a venue on the water. Dani shot both events- she was very accommodating. She was assertive in the needed ways to get the great photos we now have to remember our special events. She did an amazing job of getting the formal group photos we wanted and getting many amazing candid shots we cherish. She photographed everyone in attendance. She helped keep the reception moving along in a timely manner. We love our wedding album which she helped us put together- narrowing down the photos is difficult. . We will definitely use Dani in the future for other events we want captured.
