About your photographer...
My name is Dana Brandt. I'm the owner and photographer at Happily Ever After Photography. I was born and raised in Chicago, but my heart has always belonged to the Gulf Coast of Florida. My business has allowed me the gift of working in the two places that I love. My family and my photography are the two passions in my life. I believe in love, fairy tales and chasing dreams. I'm lucky to have found true love and married my high school sweetheart. We're parents to two teenage boys that keep us smiling, laughing and exhausted. :)
Since the launch of Happily Ever After Photography in 2009 I've worked with hundreds of clients, and I am honored to be a part of their most important moments. I care for all of my clients like they're my family, and photographing these families as they grow is a true honor.
I feel that having a good time and being relaxed is the best way to shoot a photo session. It should be comfortable, natural and FUN! I get absolutely giddy when I'm taking photos, and that energy really helps make the photography process easy and upbeat. I love what I do, and I believe it truly shows in my photographs.
