I’m hella grateful to have the chance to work with you in creating some one-of-a-kind art and portraiture that you’ll love for a lifetime.

I’ll travel from my hometown in Adams, NY to all corners of the earth with no travel fees to document your wedding day. (As long as a car or plane or some other vehicle will get me the majority of the way there.) I want to go where your love story takes me, regardless of where that is.

Fill out the form below + hop right into my DMs, friend! I do my best to respond to any inquiries/questions within 24 hours to set up a time to chat so I can learn all about you and the vision you have. But real talk, I’m just as excited as you are so, expect to hear back from me much, much sooner!

Ready to do this?!

Sh*t's about to get real.

In the meantime:

Thanks for reaching out! I will be in touch with you shortly!

Thank you!

No. All of my wedding and elopement packages include travel within New York. Any inquiries for a location outside of New York will be met with bespoke packages that include travel—this is because I want to follow along with your love story, no matter where that takes me. So if you're looking at New England, or Joshua Tree—I'm ready to go! If you're looking at an international location, get in touch and let's chat—I've a bucket list of locations, friend.

Do you charge extra for travel?

I do take on branding sessions and seniors on occasion, but I do not take on families, newborns, boudoir, real estate, or other types of sessions. This is because I'm really drawn to the love and human connection that people can find, nurture, and build on together. So, overall I'm a couples' photographer and I've learned how to best serve my couples and tell their love stories authentically.

Do you shoot anything other than weddings or elopements?

This depends on a number of factors: how long your coverage is, what you're timeline looks like, and how many loved ones you plan on having with you for your special day. A safe average is roughly 40 images per consecutive shooting hour.

With adventure sessions, you're guaranteed a minimum dependent upon your package—but I can basically guarantee that your delivered gallery will contain more than the minimum. 

How many images are included?

You can find me in the sleepy little town of Adams, New York—which is 45 minutes north of Syracuse, and 45 minutes south of the Canadian border. I absolutely do travel, so if you have a destination in mind or you've found me and you're not from New York—please still reach out! I'd love the chance to learn more about your wedding dreams and to possibly document that for you!

Where are you located & do you travel outside of New York?

If you’re ready to start the booking process, drop me a line via my CONTACT FORM!! Next, I’ll send over my pricing guide based on what kind of experience you’re looking for. We also set up a time to chat as I want to get to know you, your partner. Once we make sure we’re a good fit, and decide on which package you’d like, I will send over a contract for you to sign. After you’ve signed on the dotted line and paid the non-refundable retainer, you will be officially booked!! (The remaining balance is due 15 days prior to your wedding day. This can be broken up into smaller payments, or paid all at once—whichever is easiest for you!) 

How does booking work?

For intimate weddings + elopements within a 150 mile radius of Adams, NY I require a $1000 non-refundable retainer and a signed contract. For intimate weddings + elopements outside of the 150 mile radius I require a 50% non-refundable retainer. The remaining balance is due 15 days prior to your celebration date—you can pay the balance in full then, or break it up and pay it over time beforehand.

How do payment schedules work?

It for sure is! Wedding and elopement collections range from 4 hours to 16 hours across two days—this empowers you to be able to have the whole story of your wedding or elopement weekend documented so that you can share it with friends and family later on. Or just sit with your partner and relive the moments again and again.

What if we need more than one day coverage? Is that a thing?

I am absolutely here to help you along with the planning process—whether that be for your "Just Us" elopement, 50 guest intimate wedding, or just-because adventure session. I can be as involved as much or as little of the planning as you'd like—from location scouting to wardrobe assistance, I've gotchu.

Will you help us plan?

Client Lovin'

If you are looking for a photographer, look no further!!! Donna Marie is extremely talented and goes above and beyond for her clients. We were extremely nervous when it came to having our photos taken, however Donna Marie really made the experience so comfortable and amazing. We chose her because we wanted the intimate and authentic look, and we are so lucky that we did. The photographs that we received back are sincerely gorgeous and we have found our forever photographer! I can honestly say the entire experience was wonderful and we look forward to working with her again!

She has a way to capture moments

Karyn + Sean

I have worked with Donna Marie Photo Co. for over a year and a half and had six completely different sessions with her. Not only was I deeply impressed when I gave her my mild inspiration and she turned it into magic. But on top of that, I also have had a difficult time looking natural in front of a camera. She has a way to capture moments and draw them out that I would not have felt possible. Her work I’ve seen far exceed those in the industry and she’s always willing to go the extra mile to make each session special for each individual client. I will always recommend her to friends, family, and anyone who sees the work she’s done for me.

She was easy going and let us have fun

Lauren + Adam

I don't even know where to begin. We had planned 3 different weddings thanks to the world of 2020 and Donna was flexible enough to join us on our third try! She worked with us to create a bespoke package that was exactly what we were looking for and was within our budget. She was early, and extremely professional. The "getting ready" shots were non-intrusive for such a crucial time and she was so efficient with getting what she needed together. The same can be said for the ceremony. I don't remember seeing her flitting around getting every possible angle but I see the proof in our photos. Donna gave great directions, and was firm when needed to guide us all into the right poses for our family portraits. When it was time for my new husband and I to step away for our photos, she was easy going and gave us direction but let us have fun with the photos. Oh and did I mention our photos were done by the next day?!?! Our comfort and ease is shown in every single photo she took. Donna will be the only photographer we use in the future. Thank you Donna!!
