Matted Prints

A matted gift print is a classic and timeless option for photography. They make beautiful gifts for your loved ones and can be framed and customized to compliment your home’s décor.

Wall Art

Wall art is the centerpiece of our photography. Every single morning as you walk through your house, we want you to see the very essence of your family.

Thoughtful Gifts

From metal holiday ornaments you will be able to cherish for generations to come, to holiday and thank you cards, we love nothing more than preparing a very unique experience for our clients.

Albums

A fine art, hand-crafted album is the perfect way to preserve every single photo you love from the shoot. We offer a variety of cover options to match your home – everything from traditional photo covers to modern, soft linens.

testimonials

“Definitely the best experience. A game of transformation; express your fantasy. Only through the eye of DY Rafaeli to show the best of you. Age is just a taboo. Dare yourself. Love their professionalism. Pets are welcome, easy parking.”

Luz

“I am so thankful for this experience that DY Rafaeli Photography provided. Thank you for making this for me! Love you guys!”

Megan and Mel

“Yagil’s photography shows the world why your pet is really human.”

Chris

“Dani and Yagil are the best! I learned about them from the Dog Bar in Miami Beach and didn’t have great hopes, but decided to sign up for a free photo session with my little puppy, Tizo. They were so good with her and her photos were beautiful. I never dreamed they would also be taking photos of me as well, but they did and they were equally wonderful. I was so happy and used one of them on my Christmas card. This year, I came again with not only my little dog, but also my 3 grandchildren. I was elated when those photos also came up perfectly. You won’t go wrong with Dani and Yagil — whether pet, child, parent or grandparent. I highly recommend them.”

Anne Hastings

“OMG! Dani and Yagil not only created a beautiful calm experience when they photographed my dogs and me but when the photos were done… they were the most beautiful photos I had ever seen! And everyone I show them to agrees. I’ll remember this experience and have these gorgeous photographs forever … close to my heart…on my wall! I highly recommend their services.”

Rose Lesniak

“One of the happiest moments and most joyous was bringing in my two chihuahuas — Minnie and Snoopy — for an afternoon of posing with these wonderful photographers who actually got my babies to hold still and smile…sort of. Bedecked in feathers and jewels, I used the pictures for my holiday cards and so adorable were they that the famous New York Social Diary website included them among their favorites of the year. Additionally, I have framed pictures of my beloved pets on my bedside table and I can only promise you it is so worth booking an appointment with them.
I have now acquired a new rescue, Daisy, and will have to make another appointment so I don’t hurt her feelings thinking she’s not as important.
Thank you for creating these mini masterpieces and if only you could make me look as good.”
