About Danyelle

I want to smooch every horse nose I encounter.

I live for the perfect margarita.

I have owned paints, quarter horses and an appaloosa.

I am as comfortable behind the camera as I am in front of it. 

I purchased 5 acres of heaven in Snohomish with the dream of one day having my horse at home. 

I am fascinated by climatology. 

Don't be surprised if you find me laying flat out in the mud during your session to get the shot. 

Second to horses, orcas are the coolest animals on the planet. And then humpback whales. 

I could eat breakfast every meal of every day. Except maybe sushi - I could eat sushi everyday too. 


How Magic Look Began

I was your typical 90's kid that never wanted to leave the smell of horses. In the countless hours I spent at the barn I almost always had some sort of camera with me. I loved playing with the natural light coming through the sides of the indoor arenas, or between trees in the pastures.


People started offering me money to take sales photos of their horses, which eventually led to learning graphic design to create sales ads. The original name I worked under was On the Rail Graphics, which I started in 2008 and utilized to pay for new tack and help fund my horse shows. 


In 2012, I changed the name and became official. I had always loved shooting in natural light and getting the halo glow around my subjects; and a client once said how my photos had such a magical look. Well, my show horse at the time was 'The Magic Look' - so how fitting was that? Thus, Magic Look Photo & Design was set in stone. 

I continued growing Magic Look while I attended the University of Washington and graduated in 2014 with a BA in Media and Communications. Following graduation I did photography and graphic design full time, until I began my role as Marketing Coordinator at Sierra Construction in 2015, where I still work today. These days I do Magic Look Photo & Design part time. It has become my creative outlet, and I absolute love working with horses and their people.
