"Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them. -Psalm 111:2
Danielle: Daughter of Christ, wife, photographer, light chaser.
I am Danielle Renèe Burge, some people call me Dani but I respond to ether! :) I am the owner/main photographer of Danielle Renèe Photography based out of Winston-Salem North Carolina. I am a coffee loving, adventure taking, joyful gal that is always down for making new friends! Most of the time I am a very positive person that loves to see the very best in everyone! It would definitely be a rare sighting to catch me with a scowl on my face! :D
I am originally from the great state of Texas out of a small town called Longview; so if you hear me say y’all a whole lot you know why! Haha I have loved photography ever since I picked up my family's first ever Sony 2 megapixel, digital camera as a young teen. The thrill of being able to capture the beauty that surrounds us got me hooked and ever since then my passion has been about capturing the true essence of ether a candid moment, a special day or the stunning earth that God created.
I shoot mostly with natural light but I am very versatile in my work and I love to switch up my style of photography. As a photographer I strive to not only make my subject look their best but to feel their best by creating a comfortable atmosphere where they feel the most themselves.
I have always been an artsy person and to be able to express my artsy side through a career in photography has been a dream come true. I started my photography business several years ago back before I even knew my amazing husband/co-owner/second shooter Ryan Burge. When I chose the name for my business I had no clue as to what my future last name was going to be; so I decided to use my first and middle name in the title Danielle Renèe Photography. Soon after Ryan and I were in a relationship, Ryan started to really grow in his liking for photography and desired to learn more about the skill. That's when we decided that he would assist me with most of my photography opportunities when he wasn't busy with his own personal training business, Burge Fitness.
Ryan and I got married on December 6th 2015. We have loved being married and living life as husband and wife photographers. We give God credit in everything we do, because without him I would not have my amazing husband and we would not be able to do the jobs that we absolutely love. Ryan has always been there for me supporting me in growing my business and has helped me become a better photographer and person. Ryan is not only an amazing husband but he is also an amazing photographer with such raw talent. We love working together as husband and wife and we do really well at it. Most people say that they can't work with their spouse or family members but we are quite the opposite. I believe working together is what makes us enjoy our business even more because we love who we work with.
Currently we don’t have any kids except for our little fur baby Skylar. She is a spunky little kitty that knows she is the baby of the house and she works it! I know that I am probably being biased and all because she is mine but I think she is the cutest thing ever! lol If you follow me on social media you will definitely find me posting pics of her and her silly self from time to time…..I mean what cat mom wouldn’t! :)
Well that’s me in a nutshell. I hope to meet you in person one day so that we can go on our own little adventure and make memories while collecting beautiful images!
I feel so blessed to be able to make lasting relationships with the people I meet through my profession, and t0 have the opportunity to tell peoples stories with the images I create!
