Who Are We?
Danny & Vika McElmury are maternity, newborn and family portrait photographers living in San Francisco, CA serving clients all over the Bay Area. They are full service print photography artists and take tremendous pride in working with their clients through the process of their services from beginning to end.
“We love being photographers because it’s our way of connecting with people and hearing their story. We want to make sure our clients (you) are comfortable with us, our work, and that you trust us to capture your special moments. We think the best photography experiences are collaborative. We also think relating to your photographer is important. That is why we are always available to answer questions and to spend time getting to know you.” – Danny
Danny has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography from the Academy of Art University and works at Adobe. He was born and raised in San Diego, CA where he ate, drank and slept baseball his whole life. When he was 21 he moved to San Francisco for college and decide to make the city his home.
Vika has a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from UCLA and works at a physical therapy office. She was born and raised in Belarus. Her family moved to San Francisco when she was 11. She enjoys baking cakes, crafting and teaching Danny everything he knows.
“Together, we attempt to balance work and play the best we can. We invite you to stay in touch with us here on our blog and follow our adventures on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Please feel free to contact us anytime, we are here for you!” – Vika
Photographs allow us to remember the one’s we love even when they are no longer with us. We are not just photographers, we are artists; the ones you trust to capture the special moments your children and grandchildren will cherish forever. We believe that photography is best enjoyed in print and displayed in your home, not just on your computer or Facebook.
When & Where We Shoot
We love shooting during the golden hour. That’s early in the morning or late in the afternoon right before sunset. The best part of living in San Francisco is all of the beautiful and diverse locations. Some of our favorite places to shoot in the city are Ocean Beach, Golden Gate Park, Crissy Field, the Presidio, downtown, North Beach, and the Embarcadero. We also love photographing in and around our clients homes.
We love San Francisco the most but are more than happy to shoot anywhere in the Bay Area.
Let us know if you have a favorite spot or we can recommend something.
