More About Daniel Nydick Photography

From our first phone call until the day I deliver your albums and beyond, I’m easily accessible, and right by your side. On your wedding day, I’m your tour guide and a trusted friend.

My couples are people, not ‘numbers’. I get to know you, what inspires you, what makes your relationship unique,
and the details about your wedding day that are most special to you.
This yields artistic, personal, storytelling imagery that your hearts will connect to. 

I wear many hats…I handle every single phone call, email, and text personally.
I plan our day-of timeline with you (you’ll see more about that below).  

I alone hand-edit every single image for consistency. This includes color correction, polishing, and adding my special sauce that drew you to me in the first place.

We are a good fit if you are looking for a fresh, enthusiastic, seasoned professional who will put you at ease, make you laugh, and spend quality time with you before, during, and after your wedding day.

Getting to know each other on a personal level allows me to not only make sure all of your needs are met, it allows us to foster a bond that enables me to capture and deliver your stunning images you'll cherish for the rest of your life.

At the end of the day, it all boils down to this: 

  • If it hasn't been made abundantly clear, I truly love what I do. While my enthusiasm is contagious, what really ignites it all is the connection my couples share. I hone in on it, and together, we create something wonderful. 

  • I'm personable, fun, and enthusiastic (and sometimes cornier than I care to admit). I also play well with others (venues, video teams, DJs…)

  • I am more than your photographer, I am your dear friend who's looking out for you, who's been through enough wedding days to be able to calmly help you navigate yours.

  • I'm driven by an intense desire to capture beautifully moving and evocative images. 

  • I would love nothing more than to be of service to you.

I'll start by saying that if it was possible to give more than 5 stars, Daniel earned more. I fell in love with his work from the moment I saw it, and meeting him and having him capture our wedding day made me love him even more. His attention to detail and his creative eye left me breathless every time I saw a new photo. He made not only me and my husband, but my entire wedding party feel so comfortable. He kept us positive and laughing when the usual wedding panics happen and interacted beautifully with our guests all night long. If you're looking for a photographer, look no further, because Daniel is that and more. People asked all night if he was a friend that just happened to do photography, because he fit right in! We love you Daniel, thank you for capturing our love so beautifully!!

He was easy to communicate with leading up to the big day, and promptly addressed any questions I had. The day of, he and his team directed us well and always aimed to get great shots. (Including Daniel laying on his stomach in the middle of a NYC street!) He also listened to our ideas and melded them beautifully. He and his team were professional, creative, fun, and relaxed... such a great mix to put us at ease. They were a great addition to our wedding day, and now we have wonderful photos to cherish forever! Thanks, Daniel (and team)!!!!

I can’t even put into words how amazing Daniel was/ has been. From our first meeting he made us feel so at ease and he instantly understood our vision. Flash forward to our engagement shoot where this man LITERALLY SAT IN THE WATER to get the perfect shot for us. Daniel just had this personality that makes you feel so comfortable and always keeps you laughing. Daniel and his team were noting short of perfect on our wedding day. Honestly, words don’t even do him justice when it comes to explaining how talent and amazing he is. His photos are colorful, magical, and creative. He ALWAYS listens to what you want and goes above and beyond to get every single photo you’ve been dreaming of. He is so dedicated to what he does and it’s so evident in his work and how great he is with his couples. So, overall if you’re looking for a photographer look no further than Daniel.

Upon hearing about Dan, we contacted him to inquire about his availability to be our photographer for the wedding. We agreed to meet at a local coffee shop and he treated us to lattes and surprised us with a random photoshoot. We were sold at that point. His personality was overwhelmingly friendly and we could tell he absolutely loved what he does. He was available to meet up and/or speak over the phone at any moment we requested. We would absolutely recommend Dan to any couple looking for their special events to be captured.

I have had the pleasure of working with Daniel for the last 2 years ! First when i was a bridesmaid in a friends wedding and he blew me away how he captured everything you could hope to get on your wedding. After that we booked him for our wedding, engagement session and most recently our maternity pictures. Our wedding was canceled due to Covid and Daniel was so helpful and kind through the entire process. He reassured me time and time again everything would be fine. Not only are you getting the most amazing photos of these special moments but you’re working with someone who truly cares about what they are photographing and the people that comes with it. He truly is one of a kind. I cannot wait to continue to use Daniel for all our pictures to come.

He was professional and friendly. He does not do the typical wedding picture poses. Daniel is very creative...constantly thinking outside the box. He is also open to requests and suggestions. He goes above and beyond for his clients. My husband and I highly recommend him. You will be more than satisfied...I promise!

He already had our attention from reviews and social media and we both loved his photography style. After one call, there was no doubt. We didn’t want to hope for the best; we wanted the best - which is exactly what you get from Daniel. We did our engagement photos with him as well (which I highly recommend doing!). He is absolutely amazing to work with, helps you to feel comfortable, and gives direction. He truly cares about his clients and went above and beyond our expectations. All of our guests were talking about how he was getting on the floor, running around - doing whatever he could to get the picture! Each photograph is a work of art - capturing the pure emotion, love and happiness we felt that day. Our photos are filled with every special detail of the day, from beautiful portraits to fun moments and candids of family and friends. If you want to feel the same way you felt on your wedding day EVERY TIME you look at your wedding pictures, hire Daniel!

Dan & his team are seriously one-of-a-kind in the Wedding Industry. My Husband & I have worked in the wedding industry for 10+ years & we have seen it all! When we decided we were going to start planning our big day - I knew Dan was the only photographer I wanted to meet with. From beginning to end - he made us feel super comfortable. Dan photographed our engagement shoot & our wedding & we would do it all over again if we could! My husband & I highly recommend Dan & his team & we can't wait show off ALL our amazing wedding photos!

There are not enough great things that I can say about Daniel. From the first time that we met with him we knew that he was the one we wanted shooting our love story (we didn't even meet with any other photographers). Daniel worked with us when we were planning so that we could get the things we wanted at a price that was reasonable to us. The day of my wedding I was seriously ill and seriously contemplating whether or not I was going to make it to my ceremony. Daniel spent the whole morning not only snapping AMAZING photos but trying to get me to relax and have fun and most importantly. We received our wedding photos just shy of one month after our wedding which is FANTASTIC turnaround. When we received the photos I was so nervous that I would look sick in the photos but Daniel delivered BEAUTIFUL photos that showcased how in love we are, how happy we were to be getting married & how much fun everyone was having. I wasn't disappointed in a single shot (even the embarrassing ones).

I cannot recommend Daniel enough. Hiring him as our photographer was hands down the best wedding planning choice we made for our wedding day. My husband and I are a bi-racial couple that needed a photographer that could take photos of us that wouldn’t blot him out or cause me to become part of the glare. With Daniel this was a non-issue we got a full look at the work hes done and its fantastic. I felt like I had an old friend hanging out with me all day and my bridal party loved him too. It made us all comfortable and allowed us to create pretty amazing moments that they then where able to capture for us on camera. I couldn't be happier not just with the photos but also with the new friends we all made that day. If you are looking for someone who is mellow go with the flow while also making sure not to miss a single special moment in your story you cant go wrong with him.

We decided to pick him as our wedding photographer because of his distinct attention to detail, and true care about the couples he works with. He was genuinely excited to capture our special day. From our engagement shoot, to the day of the wedding, he made sure everything ran smoothly and efficiently, and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Daniel and his amazing team of photographers and assistants made sure that we got all the shots we requested, but still left time for us to enjoy the night without being interrupted. He was great at reviewing all the details with us, and was able to handle last-minute changes with ease. We received the photos pretty quickly and were so happy with the end result. This is not your typical, cheesy wedding photography. What Daniel creates is more like art, and best of all, does an incredible job of capturing the real emotions of the bride, groom and guests who were there to celebrate your special day.

From the first phone conversation, I got a great vibe from Daniel. Fast forward to our wedding day, all the way through the process Daniel kept in contact with us, made sure we had a schedule for the day and that he knew exactly what we wanted out of our photos for the day. He arrived early, kept us on track and even let us book him for an extra hour day of. Through the whole day he never lost his energy and his passion for his work was clear. You can tell that he loves what he does, it’s not just a job for him. Daniel is a true artist, and an amazing person to work with. Whenever we’ve been around him, we have a blast. We’re so lucky to have found him and had him capture our story. His style is bold and dramatic while still being romantic and timeless. If you’re thinking about hiring him, run, don’t walk. You won’t regret it!

We used Daniel for our recent Aug. 11, 2018 wedding. From the beginning Daniel saved us when our original photographer double booked us. Daniel showed up to our house the next day and relived our anxiety. He put as at ease from the moment we met with his calm while upbeat personality. His care and passion for his work and clients is undeniable. On the BIG day Daniel worked with a second photographer Mark and assistant Barry- Both who were just as amazing as Daniel! Daniel captured every moment we were hoping for and more! His inventive style captured some amazing shots that we will cherish for a lifetime! We can't thank Daniel and his team enough for making our special day even more special by capturing what we felt was a dream!
