Congratulations on your engagement! I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Barb, the owner of Danielson Photography. I’m an artist, a wife and a mother, and I get to spend my days celebrating love as I help couples celebrate the biggest day of their lives! I provide a high end, client-centered wedding photography experience focused on documenting your unique love story through timeless photography and heirloom albums that can be passed on for generations. I might be the photographer for you if:
you believe building a strong marriage is more important than the wedding day.
you appreciate the finer things, but don’t get too caught up in the details.
you are already planning how to hide your ugly cry face (don’t worry, I’ll be tearing up, too).
you can’t wait to celebrate on the dance floor!
I would love to get together at a local coffee shop and discuss your dream wedding day (although, I’ll admit, I’ll be drinking hot chocolate or Diet Coke). I can’t wait to get to know you!

Wine Tasting Engagement Session in Galena | Galena Wedding Photographer
When Cassidy contacted me about her idea of going to Galena for a wine tasting engagement session, I responded with "SIGN. ME. UP." Galena has a special place in my heart. I can't tell you how many times my husband and I have discussed the logistics of moving there. The quaint downtown, the bluffs, the history...we love it all. So, give me an opportunity to head over and be a Galena wedding photographer for a day and I'm all over it. Plus, I love wine. I've known Cassidy for almost nine years now. She was one of my trainers when I worked at Bennigan's back in my college years and we became fast friends. Life has thankfully slowed d ...Couples January 17, 2019 Read the Post
St. Raphael Orthodox Iowa City Wedding | Mr and Mrs Arndt
When I was contacted about this Orthodox wedding in Iowa City by the groom, I was so excited. I love getting to learn new wedding traditions. It's a perk of my job! Since this was my first time attending an Orthodox ceremony, I prepared by emailing with Fr. Ignatius at St. Raphael to make sure I understood the traditions and was respectful of the ceremony. I always especially look forward to weddings where my primary contact has been with the groom. 99% of the time I almost exclusively talk and plan with the bride, so I get super pumped about the groom taking charge in the photography area. As I got to know Matthew and Katherine, I lea ...WEDDING January 16, 2019 Read the Post
Quad Cities Family Farm Wedding | Mr and Mrs Geier
Samantha and Curtis' Quad Cities family farm wedding can be described in one word. FUN. These two were such a pleasure to get to know, from their lighthearted snowy engagement session to all of our planning check ins leading up to the wedding. I don't know how I somehow get the most relaxed couples, but I love it so much. The two of them were just so excited to get married, they didn't let themselves get bogged down with all of the planning stress. I love how much their celebration on Sam's dad's family farm really revolved around family and having fun. I think you will see from the pictures that this group was definitely having a great ...Uncategorized January 10, 2019 Read the Post
