Meet Your Photographer

Hi I'm Danielle, owner and lead photographer of Scratch Photography. My favorite weekend morning tradition is making breakfast together and snuggling up for a good movie at night. I am a yogi and total foodie. You can find me wandering night markets for local handmade goods or at my favorite coffee shop almost daily. 
The best part of my job is getting to showing my clients that they look amazing even when they feel awkward or camera shy. The pride they see in themselves warms my heart.

"We love Danielle and Charlie!! We were lucky enough to have Danielle shoot our wedding last year and recently just used her again for family photos! Danielle is a pleasure to work with and makes the whole experience so fun with her funny, laid back way! She captures the most special moments. Her photos are some of our most treasured!! Just met Charlie at the family shoot last weekend and he is great too! Amazing with kids and got our little girl to hysterically giggle, resulting in the cutest photos! We always recieve the finished photos in a timely manner too which is super amazing. Thanks you guys!! We appreciate you so much!!"

Frequently asked questions

How do I book?

It's easy! Fill out our contact form, call us, or email us directly to schedule a consultation. We will go over all the details about session options, the experience, and what to expect when working with us.

Where will my photos be taken?

Where ever you want! If you have a special spot in mind we travel. Don't know where you want to go but have ideas? Thats ok too. We have been in Washington for decades and know great spots to take photos all over. Newborns we do in-home and are looking for a new studio spot in the Tacoma area, hopefully to have ready to use by the end of 2020. Destination wedding? We are happy to travel where ever your heart desires. Lets make an adventure out of it!

How far in advance do I need to book my session or wedding?

For peak season (April-September) we highly recommend booking your session or wedding date as soon as possible. Our weekends generally book up to 3 months in advance, Saturdays can even be 4 months in advance for June, July and August. We are already booking 2021 weddings! If you are having a weekday wedding or are open to doing a private session during the week we can book within 2 months with little to no conflict. The simplest version is if there is date that is important to you book as soon as you know you want to reserve us!

When will I get my photos back?

We have one of the fastest turn around times in the market getting private sessions back to clients within 1-2 weeks and full wedding galleries back within 2-3 weeks. With each session we sit down in person or virtually to go over the gallery, which images you would like to keep and all the package options available to you. Its simple, easy, and expertly guided to meet your needs.
