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.







Y’all thought I was joking when I said I wanted to photograph a chicken wedding, eh?

It makes sense when you think about it:
I love photographing weddings, and;
I love chickens.
Therefore, a chicken wedding was inevitable.

Now, real talk, this isn’t the kind of content that you usually see from me. But let’s be real, this is the content that we never knew we needed.

Lily + Fred have been each other’s favorite since they met last year. He dotes upon her and makes sure that she gets all the best treats when they’re out and about in the yard. Their human family thought it would be a riot to let them have their “happily ever after” together.

So I, along with a team of bombass creatives, put together the best freakin’ chicken wedding Lily + Fred could have dreamed of. They had their very own chick-uterie board, vanilla cake, and bespoke attire designed and made for them. And had their “ceremony” right under their favorite tree in the yard. It took a little coaxing, but they got all the mealworms, grains, and cracked corn to sweeten the deal. It took place in their backyard, with the arbor placed near their favorite tree.

Enjoy these moments and details from Lily + Fred’s wedding!
