My name is Danette, and I like to shoot people for a living.

Hey pals!

If that sounds violent and creepy, its because you’re thinking of the wrong kind of shooting of people. I shoot people using my cameras, and not guns, because the latter is illegal. (and for a plethora of other reasons like morals and stuff)

So anyway, I’m Danette and I love what I do. (And ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Ghost Adventures’)


Since 2008 I’ve been photographing weddings all over the country. I started photographing professionally in my home town of Santa Fe, NM after attending an internship with the fabulous Sarah Barlow (who’s a total badass) in Chicago. To date I’ve photographed over 1500 weddings and elopements, in 13 different states. My work has been featured in many various wedding blogs and publications including WeddingWire, The Knot, Little Vegas Weddings, One Wed, DIY Bride, Forbes, and Bridal Guide.

I moved to Vegas in 2010 where I learned why people like being married by people dressed as Elvis. Its a thing, and its fun.  

I gave up on my own photography business for a few years after I moved to Las Vegas. I was afraid of failing amongst all the other Las Vegas wedding photographers. Luckily after two years of shooting at wedding chapels, I was ready to work for myself again. I can now truly say that I’ve seen the weirdness Vegas has to offer while working at a wedding chapel. Vegas gets weird. Real weird.

What is the Amberlight Collective?

The Amberlight Collective is a collection of my work. Not even gonna lie, I wanted a really creative and hipster name. Amberlight has a ring to it that Danettelight does not. Ah well, the byproduct is that sometimes people call me Amber. My fault.

Who are your brides and grooms? What kind of people would love what you do?

My brides and grooms are people who love to have fun. Not necessarily people who feel natural in front of a camera, but go with the flow, have fun, and laugh a lot. Thats what my photo sessions are like. I make awkward jokes, you laugh, and we get great pictures and have fun together.

What’s next for you? Where do you want to be in five years?

I’m really focused on upping my game within the wedding industry. Recently I’ve been working really hard to become a resource for other small business entrepreneurs within my local community. I run a group called TuesdaysTogether which is part of a larger national group called The Rising Tide Society which is focused on helping everyone around you succeed. Their motto is “community over competition”, and I strive to bring and keep that mentality to other creative professionals in my town. I’m really into helping others succeed (even if they’re my competition!) I’m also very focused on improving the experience my clients have with me. I don’t want to spoil anything, but lets just say, if you’re a future client of mine, you’re gonna love what I have in store for you!

What makes you different from other photographers? Why should I hire you?

Well, I’m a nerd. I realize thats not a lot of incentive, but actually I work really hard at making sure you have fun and feel comfortable, and I totally use my nerdiness to my advantage (and yours!). At the end of the day I know that what I’m offering you is an experience and not just photos. I want to provide you with the best experience possible because ultimately I know when you look back at your photos, the photos will invoke what you were feeling at the time, and what you were feeling at the time should be incredible because it was your wedding day, and your wedding day deserves the most amazing experience possible.

why its important

Your wedding day is gonna fly by.  You're going to wake up on your big day, and you're going to blink and be married.  All of the pomp and circumstance, all of your friends and family gushing over you, all of the pampering, celebrating, and dancing will go by in a flash.  You'll have had the most amazing wedding cake, delicious food, celebratory drinks, and have exchanged the most important words you'll ever say to another person.  Its a day of sensory overload.

You'll have chosen the perfect venue, the best officiant, the blingiest of rings, and the most gorgeous dress in the world.  And you'll want it all documented.  Not just documented, you'll want it all immortalized, in the most beautiful way.
