About - Daniel Balboa
I'm a full-time professional photographer based in Southern California. We love working with our clients all over California... and traveling throughout the world to create amazing pictures during those once-in-a-lifetime moments!
4 Wheels, 2 wheels, wings or water I love it all! I've traveled as far as Finland in the spring, which was so cold and so beautiful. Every year I go on a trip with a bunch of guys to help the impoverished towns across the Mexico/Texas border. I am excited to see where God will lead me next!
My style is a mix of fun, classy, and chic. I tend to shoot from the hip and with my heart. Photography is not just another love, but my passion. I strive to go beyond capturing moments. It is my desire to build relationships with our clients so they get images that are one-of-a-kind as well as the experience of the day we spend together. You can find out more about this thru our Beloved Sessions.
I love having fun with my wife, Beky. I find it a joy that she supports my profession as a photographer. She is my biggest fan! I love how she works so well with me as my manager and occasional assistant during the day of the wedding. She also has her own business, Balboa Weddings & Events, as an amazing wedding coordinator.
WHAT'S IN MY BAG?
I like to keep my bag simple and uncluttered.
My cameras are the Canon 5D Mark III & a 5D Mark II;
Five top end Lenses (24-70 2.8 II, 70-200 2.8 II, 17-40 4.0, 35 2.0 II, 50 1.4,);
A lot of Memory Cards with some back up recording drives like the Epson P-5000 (gotta keep the files safe);
