Donna Marie


Hello there!

I'm Donna Marie

An inclusive adventurous destination wedding and elopement photographer livin' in upstate New York. I'm here to empower all couples to create an intentional wedding day that focuses on the experience and the feels.







It is such a great honor to photograph the love story of a fellow photographer. Jessica and I met in 2019 at a Rising Tide meeting and we became fast friends – so when she asked if I would be down for a winter couples’ session – y’all know the answer was a fast “hell. yes.”

Let me tell you, it was cold. And it was windy. But it was absolutely worth every second. It had been so cold as of late that the entire Black River Bay had frozen over, which was a breathtaking site to see honestly. In all my years of living in this area, I don’t recall ever seeing it completely frozen over.

Give me the windy drama, the genuine laughs, heartfelt smiles, and the fire between these two any day.
