Danni Lea Photography
Joyful, fun, goofy, true to you and your love story!
Hi! I’m Danielle! Wedding photographer and visual storyteller serving out of Corpus Christi, Texas!
I have built my business around learning your love story and capturing who you are on camera to tell the story of your engagement and wedding day in still frame. From the tiny details you include hidden on your bouquet to honor special family members, to the theming you entwine in your reception décor, to the simple goofy moments where you stick your tongues out at one another because it’s your “thing.” I’m here for it all!
Most of all, after a hundred weddings, I love supporting my clients! I’m here to bring out the giggles and help with timelines, provide recommendations to the best wedding vendors who will work as a team to make your wedding day special and be here to lift you up with a smile and a shutter click!

What inspired you to become a wedding photographer?
I first picked up a camera as a part of spending time with my dad on hikes, since him with a camera often ended up with him being a mile behind the rest of us. Nature photography taught me the art of finding the small details. In college, my roommate became the Yearbook Editor so, as a supportive roommate, I became Yearbook Photographer. I loved being in crowds of people and attending events. As time went on, and through grandparent and great-grandparent diagnoses with Alzheimer’s disease, and personal dealings with traumatic brain injuries, the importance of photography became my way of keeping memories and stories alive. The first wedding I ever photographed was for a friend that I had been along to take her to her first date with her now husband. And that started a fire in my soul to capture memories and tell couple’s love stories through their engagement, wedding and beyond!
How would you describe your photography style?
My photography is true to life! Whether it’s capturing the natural laughter and goofiness of my couples or posing you to make you feel at your best – I love capturing moments as they happen, with a little flair! I orient my editing style to be the same. My goal is to capture your love story so that it stays timeless, joyful and bright!
How do you ensure that your clients feel comfortable and relaxed during the photo shoot?
I love helping my clients with posing and making sure that the way you’re posed makes your feelings about your final images flood with confidence! Working with couples who feel weird in front of the camera is one of my specialties! I love creating those moments and capturing them and all the while making you feel confident as you get to spend time with your favorite person…and me!
What is your favorite part of the wedding day and why?
My favorite part of wedding days are the moments right after your officiant announces you as officially married! The absolute joy and anticipation as you share your first married kiss, the buzz of excitement in your guests as they applaud and cheer you down the aisle, and all the emotion as your best friends greet you at the end of the aisle with hugs and happy exclamations to congratulate you on being officially married! Second favorite is romantic newlywed portraits as I get to be the one to use “your wife” and “your husband” in posing prompts which, of course, prompts some of my favorite expressions!
