My name is Dani Rodriguez and I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Berlin. I document weddings and elopements worldwide. Telling stories about couples who are in search for something more genuine, deeper and unique. I don’t like to follow trends, nor other people’s work. I look at every couple that comes my way as legends worth remembering and want to give them the grace they deserve. To honour them by portraying them as different and unique as they are. BRING ME SOMEWHERE NICE is the name of business that I chose for my wedding work. The name comes from a song by Mogwai, one of my favorite bands. It is not specifically about taking me somewhere nice, which by the way, is always a great thing. I imagined a place where I’d like to take you with your memories. a journey, a place of mystery and transcendence. It is also the idea of a bride or a groom’s wishes, that marriage takes you somewhere nice.
BERLIN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
My approach to photography is documenting real emotions in the most elegant, deep and sensitive way possible. I want to take a step forward, dive in my projects and never stay on the surface. This is why I commit to the fullest and show how breathtaking you are in your purest form. I love to document honest moments, every in-between looks, so in the end you will have real memories of your wedding. Weddings are full of those moments. I want to tell YOUR story just as it really feels.
Qi + Dylan, Elopement in Santorini
Sensual. Quiet. Elegant. Dani’s art blends a cinematic vision from yesteryear, sensitivity for light, and poetic modernism. Undoubtedly artistic, his photos create a space to pause and ponder. I cried when I saw the photos. My Mum said that she got goosebumps. We are so blessed to have Dani, who is a kind and funny human being, who helped a photo-shy couple like us. We’re at loss for words to convey how grateful we are. Thank you Dani for documenting this moment in time, and suffusing it with beauty, and timeless nostalgia - Qi and Dylan.
Adrienne + Sam, wedding in Canada
Dani, the pictures made us so much happy, tears of joy! You so perfectly
captured our day. You are the most talented photographer we know, and
believe me, I've seen a lot of wedding photos..you stand out among the
others. You perfectly capture the light and all the emotions of the day. At
first it felt a bit frightened bringing you over to another continent for our
wedding, but now I know we couldn't have done a better decision. We are so lucky to have found you!
Angelique + Thomas, wedding in Berlin
We had a wonderful experience with Dani and the result is amazing. From the start when we met we had a great feeling about Dani as a person and it gave us even more confidence in his capabity to see moments differently. We were so happy we worked together. On the wedding day he was fabulous: Always present but never too much, he advised us without pushing us, he mixed well between us and the guests; and most of all, he captured the lights, the emotions, the spirit of the entire wedding. Not only are we really satisfied with the pictures, we also got compliments from all guests. So compliments to you Dani for your amazing work: For mixing so well your talent, your passion, your personality to serve the special day of so many people. Thank you Dani and to everyone looking for a photofraph for their wedding: Do not hesitate any longer!
Rea + Marco, wedding in Italy
Dani Rodriguez ist nicht nur ein unglaublich talentierter Fotograf, er ist auch ein wundervoller Mensch. Mit Dani haben wir den perfekten Fotografen gefunden. Er erledigt seine Aufgabe zwar leidenschaftlich gern, aber sehr sorgfältig, unauffällig, leise.. wir haben oft gar nicht wahrgenommen dass er da ist und Fotos macht. Auch beim Shooting hat er mit seiner unkomplizierten Art und kleinen Tricks dafür gesorgt, dass wir uns wohl fühlen.
Die Bilder sind absolut genial geworden. Das Licht, die Winkel, die Farben, die Emotionen.. immer wieder schauen wir die Fotos an und fühlen uns ein bisschen zurückversetzt an diesen wunderschönen Tag.
Dani, du hast mit deiner Arbeit eine grosse Verantwortung. Unsere Erwartungen hast du übertroffen. Danke von Herzen.
Jasmin + Per, Wedding in Switzerland
wow, I am trying to put into words what it was for us having Dani as our wedding photographer.. an incredible blessing! what a talented and orginal photographer, what a beautiful pictures, what a story,
and above all, what a great person. For a long time we were looking for a suitable photographer who just don't do the the classical wedding pictures, then we discovered Dani´s work and we were blown
away, that was exaclty what we were looking for. Laid back, big hearted, respectful and funny! We can call him friend now.
It was amazing to experience with what a passion and devotion Dani accompannied us and captured so many moments that we and our families will never forget. You made my cry going through them.
Thank you Dani, we have you in our hearts closed
