Hi, I am Dao Jones.

I'm an intimate wedding, destination, and elopement photographer passionate about capturing genuine, true moments between two people in love. Like you, I adore traveling to new places, seeking new experiences, and finding adventure - creating a life that's anything but ordinary

I'm based in Northern California, but I travel constantly! Charting a course up a mountainside, hiking down to the sea, or mapping out paths to secret groves are my favorite ways to spend my day.

I received a Bachelor's in Film from the University of Hawaii Manoa and have had a camera in my hand ever since. Before becoming a full-time wedding photographer, I spent a couple of years freelancing, working on a wide range of projects from shooting Daily Vlogs to Directing Music videos. When not behind my camera, I'm usually riding motorcycles or more likely working on them.



“Dao is an amazing photographer! He does a great job by asking you what kind of setting and theme you would like for your session and seeks out the perfect locations for them. He has great ideas in mind for poses and makes the photoshoot and overall wonderful experience!”
