Hi, We are Adam & Danielle Poffenbarger // husband and wife videographer and photographers! Bay Area, San Luis Obispo, Palm Springs, Kauai, and beyond!
After dating since we were 17 years old (yes, we are high school sweethearts), we got married on August 30, 2014 at Flying Caballos Ranch in San Luis Obispo. (you can see our wedding on Green Wedding Shoes) We cherish every client relationship we have, wanting you to be more then just a client, we want you to be a friend. I’m (Danielle) such a planner and I tend to care about the smallest details, but I think these qualities make me a great wedding photographer. We help our clients plan out their wedding day timelines, engagement session outfits, wedding day colors and bridesmaids dresses, suggest spots for wedding details based on lighting, give vendor suggestions and so much more! We are more than just your average vendor, we go above and beyond to help our clients have the day they dreamed of, which gives them even more amazing photos and videos! 10 years later and we still love being in the wedding industry :)
We are from the Bay Area but part of our heart will always be in San Luis Obispo. We are both Cal Poly SLO grads, and loved our time there! We’ve renovated two houses, one in Livermore (#PoffPad) and one in Atascadero (#AtownAframe) and we are always searching for our next adventure. In 2012, our family grew to add the fluffiest, teddy bear look alike named Sawyer, a mini Goldendoodle who has stolen our hearts forever. And just a few months ago, we became a family of four when our baby boy Fischer arrived (#FischerPoff). We often say silly puns or one sneak in one liners from rap songs, and we always love laughing with each other and our clients. When I’m not photographing weddings, you’ll find me thrift store shopping, blogging about fashion, interiors, and our life at Part Of The Poffs, catching up on countless TV shows (my current favs: Million Dollar Listing, Big Brother, Suits and A Million Little Things) or doing something fun with Adam and our bffs. People are always surprised to find out that this girls’ favorite music is rap, but I just claim it’s because I’m from the Bay Area! I have always been a dreamer and a doer; I set big goals for myself, which nothing will stop me from achieving. I also teach photography workshops, and love getting to meet and inspire others! When Adam’s not busy filming weddings, you’ll find him woodworking, tending to our vegetable garden, finding his way to a specialty coffee shop, or doing something outdoors in our Westfalia. He has a lot of hobbies, including dirt biking, fishing, rock climbing and playing guitar/bass. When he wants to learn something new, he puts 110% into it and quickly becomes good at it!
We are based out of the Bay Area but travel anywhere for amazing weddings!
WHY HIRE US BOTH FOR PHOTO & VIDEO:
We love working together and think we make a pretty great team! Adam started off as my 2nd shooter 10 years ago, so he learned the wedding industry alongside me and sees weddings in a similar way, making our work cohesive. Being together for over 12 years also allows us to communicate well on the wedding day, sometimes without even having to speak. We know what each other needs in terms of shots and angles, so we don’t get in each others way, and instead, we encourage each other and help make each other better. Because of this, you get the best in photo and video from your wedding day!
We hope you love our work and that we get the honor of shooting your unique wedding! Email us and let's talk! firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure you're following us on Instagram!
