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.
2022 has definitely been one for the books. I was incredibly honored to document many weddings and elopements. SO many amazing love stories.
This year has absolutely been world changing with regard to the love stories that I was asked to document. I’ve worked hard in fine-tuning my craft, my art, and how I best serve my couples. Every time I pick up my camera, I’m pushing to really capture the emotion, connection, and humanity of the moment.
What determined this list are all the moments that came to mind when I look back over the year. These photos aren’t necessarily the show-stopping, “gotta post this on IG” moments that you’d think would fill this list. Instead, these are the moments that I remember truly capturing the emotion between my couple, or my couple and their family. These are the real, raw, and human moments captured across love stories. Images that you may not always see in a photographer’s portfolio, but are the ones that transport you back in time to that exact moment, reminding you how you felt.
So while stunner photos are what draw you in, I’m here to remind you that it’s really about the humanity of the moment that keeps us there. The joy, the love, the tears, the compassion, the laughter, and the embarrassing can all be found here.
Thank you to all of the couples who trusted in me and my storytelling ways. Truly. Enjoy these moments from my 2022 weddings and elopements.
If you’re ready to toss tradition to the wind and have a wedding or elopement that reflects you authentically, get in touch. I would love to help you make what you’re envisioning a reality and document you and your partner just as you are.
Here’s to 2023.
