After 15 years as an international photojournalist and portrait photographer for newspapers and magazines, Seattle wedding photographer Daniel Sheehan created A Beautiful Day Photography to bring his skills to covering weddings. A Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist and an early pioneer of wedding photojournalism, Daniel has became a sought after photographer for wedding in Seattle and the world. He has travelled the planet to create photography for weddings in countries like India, Ireland and Italy among others. In addition to nuptials, Daniel has worked as a Seattle portrait photographer for publications like Newsweek and The New York Times and covers the Bellevue and Earshot Jazz Festivals as a jazz photographer.
A documentary or photojournalism approach to bridal photography, done well, captures every significant moment as it happens. Candid story-telling pictures are the key to successful wedding photojournalism. Our Seattle photographers are experienced in telling the narrative of a day with a distinctive, natural style through a blend of candid bridal photography and well composed artistic portraits. Unobtrusively capturing the story-telling moments is our genuine passion.
Although most of the wedding pictures we make are candid images, we believe bridal portraits are as important on a wedding day as candid wedding photography. The day is incomplete without a portrait of the bride and groom and their family and friends. In fact, our unique speciality is making a large format black and white panoramic group portrait of everyone at the wedding. Artistic, creative portraits are part of the mix of pictures we make. For recent work see our blog, "Capture the Moment".
Honored to be the photographer for Conan O'Brien's wedding in 2002, Daniel has since earned several awards and honors for his photographs.
