For stress-free couples that won't stop smiling on the most joyous day of their lives, we're glad you're here.

For the stressed-challenged bride and groom who's uncomfortable being photographed, Dan is all too familiar with those struggles. That was him on his wedding day not so long ago. Over time he's picked up a trick or two to help alleviate the tension and to help couples truly enjoy the precious moments of their wedding day. And when those natural expressions of giddy happiness come out, he's ready to capture it all.   

Whichever couple you might be, welcome!

Stay as long as you'd like.

Your Wedding Photographer will be with you on the biggest day of your lives. It's no small decision who you choose, so let's see if we might be a match. 

 you ]  On a day that will be a whirlwind of activity and emotion, you're looking for a seasoned, client-focused photographer who helps minimize stress and operates in ninja stealth.

 [ me ]  Well, near ninja stealth

 

[ you ]  Want a bunch of unique, candid moments captured from untypical angles, which produce amazing, tear-jerking images -- delivered in a few days, not months.

 [ me ]  Always

 

[you]  Know the day will come and go so quickly and value the investment made in preserving those memories. Photography is very important.   

 [me]   It's a big deal for me to be chosen to document the biggest day of a couple's life. I show up early and discretely work my tail off until there's nothing left to photograph!

This chapter of your lives is truly specialand an Engagement Session is one way to help preserve all these memories. If that isn't a big enough reason, there's an important factor why couples should  consider this session in their wedding photography package:  It gives you both a chance to practice and get comfortable in front of a camera, so that on your wedding day, you know a thing or two about posing and looking your best for the all important wedding portraits.

Lastly, your wedding photographer will be with you from start to finish on the most important day of your lives. Wouldn't it be great if you had already hung out and gotten to know each other before hand? The more comfortable you are with me, the better your weddings photos will turn out.  For this reason, unless its absolutely impossible, I always prefer to include an engagement session in all my wedding photography packages.

about dan


Dan Johanson, Bay Area Wedding Photographer

It's important to know a bit more about the guy/gal who might be with you on the most important day of your lives. You'll most certainly want a personable connection with your photographer and I'm hoping we just might work out for each other!

Me? 

. . . I love spicy homemade hummus, and a nice glass of red wine -- preferably while sitting in a massage chair (especially after a wedding)

. . .  hiking the Sierras, scuba diving the Pacific or hopping on flight to a new country are just a few favorites

. . . I really love wedding photography and capturing it all from start to finish. I've teared up on several occasions but thankfully can hide behind the camera. 

. . . I love it when I become a friend of the bride and groom. It's why I only shoot weddings. (Sorry pets, babies, and high school seniors, I'm not for you!)

. . . My wife and I still date. We believe our strong marriage is a work in progress and will be the greatest gift we could ever give our kids.

. . . I love shooting San Francisco 49er and Giants games, where I sort of get to pretend I'm on the team for a few hours.

How about you? Let's get together or set up a phone call!

. . . We started Badjao Bridge, which serves to help a forgotten people living on the sea.. I also shoot for non-profits around the world. That work is over at that website
