Our Story

7 Kendall Ln Harwich MA 02645 us


The Danielle Ryder Photography Team is lead by Danielle and assisted by Sarah Sprague. You'll see us at your portrait sessions, weddings, and special events! 


Our style is focused around mostly candid, natural light photography. During portrait sessions, we enjoy watching children play and have fun in front of the lens. Allowing children to explore and create wonder and excitement during sessions truly makes for beautiful portraits. We do provide fun props, locations and directions when needed, but Danielle is the photographer running with your toddler and making them laugh, encouraging happy smiles and light hearted fun sessions. Danielle has been called upon by many parents who say their child just won't sit still in the studio, or will not smile for my pictures. Her goal is for you to walk away from the session with a smile, knowing that beautiful moments where captured into perfect memories.  We offer themed mini sessions year-round, so find us on facebook!

Wedding Photography:

Our wedding approach is guided by our couples' desires for their day. We focus our attention on capturing candid special moments, that glimmer of love between the bride and groom, the smile from mom when dad gives the bride away, the first kiss to the last dance,  details of your ceremony, your reception, even down to the sparkle on your shoe. We aim to retell your wedding day in a way that is magical, exciting, and full of emotions. Our team brings not only our photography experience but guides you through your day from the moment of arrival to the final departure. We have an eye for ensuring the small details are perfect, provide helpful hints all along your day, and we keep your day running smooth by helping you with all those last minute choices.
