dKol + engagements

Met Liana and George at Burger Hill in Rhinebeck this morning. Took a hike to what felt like the top of the world, where George spun Liana around and danced with goofy grins on their face. I never once said, kiss each other or snuggle closer, not once. And for that very reason they belong in front of my lens. When emotions run deep my creativity gets fired up.

Next month these two are getting married and there is no mistake how much their love is infectious. Can't wait to document their vows.

Fortune Cookie In My New Jeans

When the tag on your new jeans act as if it's a fortune cookie...it must mean something other than being a wannabe. I took it as a sign that it was time to refresh my website. I'm a change junkie, so I embraced that as a "sign from the universe", turned up some rock & roll and got stuff done! Hope you like the fresh new look.

Hello + Updates + Commercial Photography

I'm proud to announce that from this relationship with Organic Hudson Valley several additional relationships have blossomed because of my work in the magazine. Most recently, Chef Terrance Brennan, head chef at The Roundhouse in Beacon, NY has used some of my photography on his website. Brennan's dishes are served with distinctive attention to detail mixed with decadent recipes that make for the perfect combination of artistry for his menu. Cheers, Chef!

dKol on Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday:

I absolutely love the secret ingredient that goes into each of these small businesses...PASSION. The working craftsmanship of actual hands manipulating the fine details of a locally made item is priceless. Especially on a day like today. Cheers to Small Business Saturday!

dKol Commercial: Organic Hudson Valley Magazine

 

I've kept this secret long enough...and I am overjoyed to finally announce that my first ever printed full page ad in a local publication is now available around the Hudson Valley- Organic Hudson Valley.

In addition, I am proud to tell you that I am a contributing artist in the August/September edition for a featured article titled "From Speakeasy to Wheat Grass: The Montes Are Back". You will also find an article on one of my commercial clients- Rooster Studios: "Turning Discarded Trees into Treasured Heirlooms" in which some of my photography is featured in as well as a photograph of mine for an ad they have in this issue.

I simply adore working with Laurie at OHV and can say wholeheartedly that I support their mission and work ethics! I personally cannot thank her enough for her support in my own business endeavors. It is a true joy working with a circle of businesses that not only give selflessly of their time but applaud at each others' own success.

Lastly, I'd love for you all to subscribe to her magazine (you can do so on their website) and continue to read along!

As contributing artist you can find my bio listed: Danielle is a freelance photographer behind dKol Photography. She is a left-handed lover of pens, fonts and music lyrics, and stays up entirely too late. Danielle specializes in assisting small businesses in discovering their brand through unique visual aesthetics. She strives to use stylization and photography to enhance their unique brand. You can find some of her work at www.dkolphotography.com and on social media @dKol.
