What past clients have to say

What can I say about Dan that I haven't said a million times?! That he's the most amazing photographer ever! I know that one of the best decisions for my wedding was picking him as my photographer. He not only captured the best moments, he captured them beautifully. We're keeping Dan around for the rest of our special moments, not only for his photography, but because he's an amazing person to hang around with. Thank you for all of the lovely moments Dan!


What past clients have to say

One of our groomsmen just said, "Dan Dalstra is the most perfect human being ever." Your photos are universally loved and everyone thought you were "nuts amazing".  Nathan and I both agreed that you were probably the best/easiest/most worry free decision we made about the wedding!

What past clients have to say

Dan is the MAN! In fact, all of the wedding guests, my wife and I affectionately nicknamed him Dan "THE MAN" Dalstra! Dan traveled to Cancun with us for our wedding. He has a way of capturing the most intense love and laughter shots between not only the couple but the wedding group as a whole. Dan used many of his awesome talents and jumped right in to help take all the worries and stress away from our big day.

El Paso Wedding Photographer | Las Cruces Wedding Photographer | Cancun Wedding Photographer | Hawaii Wedding Photographer | Anywhere else you want to get married Wedding Photographer

With over 8 years of photography experience as El Paso photographers, I am considered  an expert as an El Paso portrait photographer, El Paso Commercial photographer, El Paso high school senior portrait photographer, and El Paso headshot photographer. I also have an extensive portfolio as an El Paso wedding photographer, Las Cruces wedding photographer, Cancun wedding photographer, Mexico Wedding Photographer, Houston wedding photographer, Hawaii wedding photographer, Huatulco wedding photographer and a destination wedding photographer. While I am physically located in Texas and do 50% of my wedding and portrait photography in El Paso and Las Cruces, I also travel out of state and out of the country for the other 50% of our clients. Since the invention of these things called cars and airplanes, I have found that my physical address hardly matters when it comes to taking amazing photos of awesome people. I also am delighted to be a same sex wedding photographer and have photographed my same sex couples in the US and would love be honored to photograph more of these amazing unions.
