Welcome to Danae Herrmann Photography

Capturing Adventurous Weddings & Stylish Seniors In Wisconsin and Beyond

I am a wedding, engagement, and senior portrait photographer. I call Appleton, Wisconsin home, but often feel most at home while traveling and exploring new places that I’ve never been. My beautiful office is placed under Appleton's Edison Center, underneath the Oneida Skyline Bridge along the Fox River.

Though my office lies in Appleton, no place throughout Wisconsin or beyond is out of my reach. Let’s create something beautiful.

The Artist

My purpose is to capture the moments you didn’t realize were happening.

I am not just a photographer: I am the gal with a Kleenex in hand when you’re about to shed a tear, the girl offering a safety pin when your wedding gown won’t quite stay up, and most of all, I am your biggest supporter. Your story is unique, and your love deserves to celebrated and captured in the most accurate form.

I’m all about capturing real and raw moments. The moments you didn’t even realize were happening; every little kiss, every stolen glance, and all the moments in between.

About Danae


Local & Abroad

Appleton, WI Wedding Photographer

My studio inside Appleton’s Edison Center is beautifully placed under the Oneida Skyline bridge alongside the Fox River. Its two giant windows and original exposed brick are truly charming, and create a comfortable and warm setting for meetings. The DHP office is central to all of the Fox Cities.

I’ve shot a majority of my weddings in or near the Fox Cities – from Green Bay (Lambeau Field!), Milwaukee, and to the lakes and homes in Northern Wisconsin, no place is out of my reach. I also photograph students from a variety of high schools in central Wisconsin, including the Appleton High Schools, Kimberly High School, Kaukauna High School, Hortonville High School, Wautoma High School, Antigo High School, any many more!

An Adventurous Photographer

Destination Weddings, Elopements, and Engagements

Though I call Appleton home, no place beyond is out of my reach. As an avid traveler and outdoorsman, I have traveled far and wide to diverse locations across the globe. Traveling is something that has remained essential to me through the years, and it only makes sense to combine my passion for adventure and profession to capture couples who live and love courageously.

If you’d rather spend your wedding day on a sailboat in Greece, or hike to the top of Longs Peak to share your vows, then I am the photographer for you! I've slept in a hammock on the beaches of Puerto Rico, zip lined through canyons of Colorado, and spent several days on a boat in tranquil Ha Long Bay, Vietnam - my bags are packed, and I am ready for your adventure!
