Not sure where to begin with this one really…  While in Seattle recently I got to spend some time with many amazing people, many of which were photographers and two of the many of which that were photographers, were Chris and Sarah (brain ouch)… Long story short, one afternoon my amazingly wonderful (almost) best friend Christine […]

Kip - Their love and your work are both radiating to the Nth degree. SO good.

Kristen Cook - Is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious really a word? Because if it is… these important, brilliant and loving images deserve it x

Christine Pobke - um. what do you mean “almost” best friend? hmmmm? i demand explanation.

until said explanation, all i can say is wow, my friend. you are my inspiration and i loved shooting this with you. i just felt like energy was bouncing off every which way, even though we were shooting in a vast open field where things had no place to bounce off of. thanks for letting me experience such an amazing shoot with you. and chris + sarah: the session would have not been this magical had it not been for the two of you and the love you share.

Zandra - Wow Dan — love these!

Zandra - p.s. Christine — maybe you’re not (almost) Dizzle’s best friend, but rather, (almost) wonderful? Like, she’s amazingly wonderful — almost. hehehe. juuust kidding. everybody knows you’re all-the-way wonderful.

caspix - Dan – inspiring work, love every single one

todd hunter mcgaw - dude… your kungfu is strong..

Marina - just understatedly lovely.

alyda - triple rainbow!……what does this mean??????

Tonhya Kae - Wow. These are absolutely beautiful. Sarah and Chris are seriously the cutest. The up close shots on their faces are my favorites. Great job. :)

Mark - Beautiful stuff, Dan! Next we’ll have to get you over to Victoria for a wedding (i.e mine in June!).

Michelle Moore - I love seeing your perspective on this shoot. I’ve been to this park many many times, and to see the depth and magic you found there is breathtaking.

Jeremy Beasley - You’re going to have to slow down on the awesome, my keyboard can’t handle all this drool. Beautiful moments and those colours!?! They are off the hook!

Tyler Branch - wow….

michelle - OMG Dan – I love every single image! Absolutely magical. Don’t suppose you’re heading down to Tassie any time soon?? :-)

Andreas Holm - Magical!!

John Benavente - on fire again!

kylie - speechless. I LOVE these images so much !

bobbi - you are the definition of talent. absolutely blown away.

Tara Whitney - Dan – I linked over from Sarah’s twitter feed and feel totally overcome – these are AMAZING. Your line “professional observer” totally clicked with me. That is what I am too – I can never stop observing people – it is my favorite past time. Thank you for these. Amazing vision and just oh goodness. Love them.

AmyPunky Photography - Stunning photos!!!! I can feel the love between these 2 beautiful persons!

Tenielle - It’s one thing to see Sarah and Chris as inspiring photographer’s…..in their professional state…..but it’s quite another thing to see them as…..people, a beautiful married couple who are very very much in love. What a beautiful beautiful way you have of telling a story….. these are blissful indeed.


Beth Jennings - These have turned out amazing dan you must be uber happy with them. I really like the sense of place you have as well, it’s not even just about the couple but also what’s going on around them. bewdiful!! xx

Martha Moring - Dan- I got here from Sarah’s blog post and I am just blown away! Your work is fabulous. I love the “professional observer” line, as I am also a professional observer. What a great way to put it.
Sincerely blown away by your work and your vision. Thanks for sharing it.

Naomi Epstein - You gave us-the viewers a tangible feeling from these radiant photos of not only two amazing human beings but of three, yes three… very talented individuals. Thank you Dan!

Justin - Beautiful series Dan! Your work is just incredible, and so inspiring mate! Congrats on the Moran, and thanks for sharing you creative vision :-)

heather - the first image was a wise choice for the first image… love.

Elisse - These pictures are absolutely beautiful!! They depict what love between two people is truly about. Next to ‘relationships’, ‘love’, ‘soulmates’ and ‘respect’ in the dictionary they should put these pictures as that is what they convey to me. Thank you!

Nani Härkönen - I’m in love. You are a true talent.
