The Portrait Experience

Portrait sessions have a special place in my heart. My style centers joyful, and vibrant portraits of life's special events. Once you fill out the contact form, the process is as follows:

  1. Confirm your session with a retainer
  2. Prepare with help from my style & prep guide
  3. Allow me to guide you through a fun, and efficient session
  4. Select your picks for editing from a proof gallery
  5. Enjoy the final results!

Engagements

Starting at 400

Engagement sessions are like date nights with a professional third wheel. My specialty is directing couples through classic poses, and fun prompts. I got you!

Note: engagement sessions are Included in wedding collections. If you book a wedding with Daniela Zapata Photography after your engagement session, a credit will you applied to your wedding package.

Family & Maternity

Starting at 500

Family is so special, and you do not need a special occasion to get yours in front of a camera. The beauty of taking the professional route is that everyone gets to be in the frame!

Depending on your family story, sessions can take place anywhere, including in the comfort of your own home.


Personal Branding

Starting at 450

In this digital age, it is important to have professional portraits to make your brand (business or personal) pop. Personal branding sessions vary from short headshot refreshers, to full-blown rebrands featuring multiple outfits, props, and locations.

Your session will include guidance for prop selection, style tips, and timeline creation for longer sessions.

Graduation Portraits

Starting at 450

There is nothing like the feeling of finally being done with your degree! No matter what your next steps are, celebrating the moment with professional portraits is a must.

Sessions can be booked with friends, family, pets, or you can go solo. The National Mall is a popular location, however, you may elect to take photos on campus, or somewhere special to you!

Daniela was phenomenal to work with! A true professional in every sense, she knew exactly what shots to get. She understood the lighting and the shadows, and got the coolest shots from the perfect angles. The backgrounds she chose and the poses she had me do made the entire experience seamless, and I would certainly recommend her to anyone else!

We love our family photos that Dani took for us! She made it easy to schedule, communicated with us about all aspects of the session, and she was so fun to work with! She did a great job capturing our family, and made the process fun for our 4 year old. She's amazing!

We LOVED our pictures. Our session was very fun and interactive, and the photos were delivered in a timely manner. Dani was professional and communicated well- we would definitely recommend her!!!

It’s one thing to take a
picture of what someone
looks like,
and it's another thing to create a portrait
of who they are.
