joy is

Hello! I’m Danielle!

Four of my favorite things are in this photo of me: Bronson (scruffy pup), plants, our cute house, and my patient husband taking the photo! Oh, and I just found out one of my favorite images is gracing the COVER of this issue of Pink Bride Magazine!


I’ve been in the wedding/photography industry since 2005, shot my first wedding in 2007, and hundreds since then! Every couple is so special to me and I’ve continued to photograph each milestone as they grow their sweet family! I took over Memories Portraits in 2012, adding a newborn and family division of Danielle Evans Photography.


I have been married to my best friend since 2018. Can we talk about a SUPER short engagement? (Only a total of 24 days!!) We were married at the Knoxville Court House and had a FUN celebration with our close friends and family in Jamaica about a year later.


Fun Fact: I climbed over at least four barbed wire fences and jumped off a cliff in my wedding dress for photos on our celebration wedding day. I ask my couples to do some crazy things for great photos, so I had to do it as well…it’s worth it every time!


I have to brag on Bryan's daughter for a minute. She went along with my crazy idea of learning a new skill for our blowing! She and I spent many hours blowing hot glass to make these adorable glass vases as centerpieces and gifts for our guests to take home from our Jamaica celebration. She never ceases to amaze me with her creativity, perseverance, and humor! She and her fiance are tying their own knot in 2021. To say I'm a LITTLE excited about the wedding planning we've been doing would be an understatement! One of their engagement photos is below in the things I love.
