Documenting life in its raw, natural beauty.
Dannie Melisa Wit of Abeille Photography is an Artistic Life, Portrait & Wedding Photographer based in Seattle, Washington.
Dannie has one of the kindest, most beautiful hearts and it is evident in all she does. I had the honor of knowing her in high school and it was a pleasure to reconnect after so many years and see that her sweetness and kindness had somehow grown. She is considerate and detail-oriented, professional, and warm. She was incredibly conscientious of Amir and my wants, thoughts, and wishes throughout our entire process. Starting out, we were more attune to what we didn’t want and what didn’t feel right for us in regards to our wedding and Dannie supported us, remaining gentle and patient with us throughout. I appreciate her honesty, her transparency, and her graceful flexibility. Our wedding pictures are stunningly beautiful keepsakes of our special celebration. She was able to capture our connection and nuances of our personalities and relationship, I think due to the comfort she inspired and our trust in her talent and skill. I can’t thank her enough for capturing our day so beautifully and artfully. Thank you, Dannie.
How can we thank you enough for all the care, foresight & energy you put into capturing our most special day? THANK YOU for all the all the beautiful images we now have to cherish & remind us of that time & all the details we could not enjoy or completely take in on our day.
Dannie is an amazingly talented photographer. Her photos always have a strong sense of emotion in them & she captures the beauty of the world around her with her camera. More than that, she is a truly caring person, which is why her photos turn out amazing! She wants to capture you and your family as they are, showing the beauty in who you are, not just getting a flattering pose. She is easy to work with and brings with her a sense of fun and adventure! Our first photo shoot was rained out, but she adapted easy and at the end of our indoor pics we let my daughter play in the rain which ended up being my absolute favorite photos! Needless to say, I have used her a second time, and definitely will in the future! She is the first person I think of when I want photographs taken!
I’m speechless. Misty eyed also. I absolutely adore my photo story. I feel it captures our love and our connection. You really made me feel special. Thanks Dannie!!!!
Dannie Melissa Wit/Abeille Photography is a gifted photographer who will capture what you thought you wanted and then add magic, whimsy and a touch of elegant style - giving you photos that are what you really wanted but didn’t know it.
In anticipation of the birth of our second child, we decided to try having a birth photographer capture the experience. Dannie exceeded our expectations. It was freeing to not have to worry about a family member needing to take pictures in the midst of also being labor support. She blended seamlessly into the room so as not to draw attention to herself and the camera. It was completely comfortable having her present during these intense moments. The start-to-finish documentation that we have of our son’s birth is truly priceless. As I relish the memory of his birth, I also cherish these photos. Of all the moments that I have captured through photography, these are among the most invaluable. Thank you Dannie!
What a gift you have Dannie. Brings me to tears! I know these will be cherished and hung around our walls for years to come. Thank you for blessing us.
I can’t believe that you were able to capture our crazy family’s personality so perfectly in these photographs! I know that twenty years from now I’ll look back at these pictures and remember how sweet and dizzying it was to have small children. Thank you for giving my future self that gift.
Working with Dannie is a delight, from start to finish. Having professional family photos taken when you have little ones can be stressful, overwhelming, and just plain difficult to coordinate, but she made it so easy for us. Her talent speaks for itself—but she’s also flexible and willing to work with your schedule, sensitive and responsive to your desires for the photo shoot, and has a very fast turn around time. Plus she’s just a ball to be around. We were amazed at what she was able to accomplish in our short shoot and had so much fun seeing the final product. She truly is committed to preserving the raw beauty of everyday life, and this combined with her artful eye make for some absolutely stunning photos. She caught exactly what I want to remember about my kids at this stage and included lots of unique and natural shots (not overly posed!) with gorgeous, lush texture and color. But let’s face it, you can’t take good photos if you’re not passionate about your subject, and this is what sets Dannie apart — her zest for life and her complete heart for people. It’s what allows her to capture the unique emotion and beauty that she does, and it’s infectious.
Dannie, wanted to say a quick thanks for the photos... You actually made me cry when I saw them... I don’t sobb easily! I thought your pictures caught the spirit and joy of my kids, and my crazy family ..thank you thank you.
