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.







Sometimes the best moments in life are the simple ones. The moments that happen naturally between you and your partner. While it’s great having photos on your walls of you and your partner dressed up super nice while in a super scenic location, sometimes capturing the real and the organic is just as beautiful. The center of your love story is the home that you’ve created together, so what better place to document your love in it’s most natural setting?

Opting for an in home, (or in-home styled studio session) gives you and your partner the opportunity to really embrace who you are and the love that you’ve found together in a relaxed environment. When you’re in love it can be messy, real, playful, and comforting—it’s those moments that you’ll find yourself drawn to over and over again in your couples’ photos.

An in-home couples photo session is also a fantastic way to get comfortable being in front of a camera. You’re given the privacy and comfort of your home or studio location where you don’t have to worry about on-lookers or passersby. AND with in-home sessions pajamas are never off the table. You rarely have to worry about rescheduling due to weather. That’s not to say you can’t go outside and have fun with the weather, especially if there is a light rain and puddles aplenty!

In-home sessions focus less on the location or outfits and parses down on the connection between the two of you. They tend to be a little more casual and informal, so it takes away from the stress of choosing the perfect outfit(s), finding the perfect location(s), which frees you to just have fun and enjoy each other’s presence in the current moment. And bonus if you have pets, because you won’t have to worry about how to include them!

So get on your fuzzy socks and favorite sweat pants and let’s talk about what an in-home session could look like for you and your partner.
