My name is Daniel Negrea and I’m a Sacramento based wedding photojournalist , serving all of Northern California . I discovered my passion for photography about 6 years ago and ever since then I just can’t take my mind off of it. I always find myself pursuing the perfect shot and I'm a strong believer “The Sky Is The Limit ”.
Photographing people is what I like doing best so wedding photography has been a natural path for me to follow. I have a very relaxed style and my aim is to make you feel comfortable and look beautiful, creating stylish and natural photographs that will stay with you forever.
My approach is unobtrusive, I love to observe and ensure that all the precious moments of your day are captured so that you and your family can enjoy them for years and generations to come.
My post production work is fine-grained elegant and stays in touch with reality and good taste. After post production all pictures are uploaded to online galleries where customers can download, share or buy prints of their favorite pictures.
Thank you for your interest and don't hesitate to contact me for any additional information. Also feel free to check out some of my reviews below.

Daniel Negrea is not only super talented and cannot take a bad picture but his most valuable and unique quality is his ability to make you feel at ease and capture every moment with boundless energy.

" Daniel was nothing short of amazing for our family's big day. My sister Joann and my brother in law Joe could not compliment him enough on his professionalism, his expertise and most of all, his patience. His attention to detail is impeccable and his genuine and humble character made him an Allstar on our day of days . When faced with problems, he took initiative and yes even a little risk. Risk that paid off tremendously in the end result and left us speechless. This man is more than a photojournalist, he's like an old familiar friend or even family member that strives for the very best at what he does. My sister felt like any bride should feel on her big day: that it was all about her. He never made anyone feel uncomfortable or rushed. But rather gave assurances and never complained even when schedule became tight. I don't think we could have asked for more in a wedding photographer . Daniel, Thank YOU for doing an amazing job and I highly recommend you to anyone needing a professional photographer . The memories you've made possible are priceless ."

"My son married last weekend and Daniel was the wedding photographer . He did their engagement photos as we'll and they were beautiful. Daniel was always in place to snap the perfect pose and candid shot. He seemed to be everywhere but stealth in his approach, he was not intrusive at all. His ideas are so original and the finished picture so spectacular, it's impossible not to admire him and his craft. Beyond the fantastic photographs, he is one of the nicest people I've ever met. Daniel is very personable and sweet. I will be doing family portraits this fall and am so excited to see the results. I was very happy to meet him and now can say I have my very own photographer. I totally recommend him for any special event you want to remember. He was outstanding. "Yelp 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 4.57 (23 Votes)
" We were married in May and we absolutely and completely LOVE our photos!! We cannot thank Daniel enough and we are happy with every single picture. I cried and some of the moments he captured! I can't even express how elated we are for our wedding album . Thankful for all of the time and hard work he put into our special day. And all at what we thought was a very reasonable and fair price. We couldn't have asked for a better, more professional photographer . " Yelp 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 5.00 (4 Votes)
" Absolutely loved every single picture taken. Daniel did amazing work and I am so thankful we had him do our wedding. He made us all feel comfortable and he had great ideas for each shot. He made sure everything was right before he took his picture. And when I walked down the aisle, he got the best shot of me and my husband looking at each other both holding back tears. one of my many favorites. I highly recommend this photographer , he does great work! absolutely no complaints. Thank you! " Yelp 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 4.80 (5 Votes)
" October 8th was an amazing day in Lake Tahoe with perfect weather and beautiful blue skies. It was our wedding day and we had the day of our lives! If you are thinking of using Daniel for your wedding photography , from our experience, you could not wish for a better result. He is an amazing photographer with a great eye for catching lovely natural photographs . Daniel not only captured the beauty of our ceremony and reception, but he also captured the love between my husband and I. We will never be able to fully express our gratitude!

" We hired Daniel with WestCoastPicture to take our wedding photos in the Sierra Foothills of California . He met us at the location the day before to get a better understanding and feel for the shoot the next day. The extra effort he put in really helped to bring our stress level down for the marriage ceremony the following day. His setup is small and discrete, and the resulting images he captured are larger than life. Detailed, clean, accurate, timely, with deep colors and perfectly framed images . Everything was EXCEPTIONAL Daniel!!! Top Notch service and pictures. I will recommend him to anyone who needs a professional photographer . " Yelp 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 4.90 (5 Votes)

" He is amazing!! Every single picture looks fantastic and beautiful. I got married in June and I found him here on yelp and actually when I contacted him by email at first, I was in South Korea. We were in the different time zone and had the distance but he answered my questions very kindly and well. Thank you Daniel " Yelp 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 5.00 (6 Votes)

" Daniel provided photography services for my wedding on 10/4/14 and I was so impressed by his professionalism, energy, and hard work. In the chaotic moments leading up to the ceremony he went above and beyond clearing out clutter, arranging shots, and even killing an aggressive hornet with his bare hands!! Everyone was so impressed with his commitment to getting great shots- one guest even commented that we had a ninja photographer the way he was dashing around! I could not be happier with the way the photos turned out and am so grateful that we selected Daniel as our wedding photographer . " Google 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 4.75 (8 Votes)
" My wedding was held 11/16/13 and Daniel was our photographer. He also did our engagement photos 6 months prior to the wedding. He was absolutely amazing! The words that come to mind when describing this photographer are "professional, enthusiastic, energetic, creative, dedicated, and prompt." His turn around for editing pictures is quick for wedding photography , and his prices are very good. He was present at our wedding venue for about 10 hours and he had some great ideas for poses. He would show us some of his favorite shots if he thought they'd come out really well. After the wedding, my family and friends had nothing but good things to say about him. He is HIGHLY recommended.
