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!

Investment

It can be a date night, a surprise proposal, an anniversary, or just because. You don't need a reason to book an adventure session! We will craft an adventure for you both to enjoy and I'll follow along with my camera in tow.

01. What is an adventure session?

First things first: Adventure ≠ hiking. You don’t have to hike if that’s not your thing. Some couples live for it, others not so much. And that’s perfectly okay! Not hiking doesn’t mean you can’t have an adventurous or adventure(ish)  experience. There are many options for couples who may not be avid hikers, such as spending a day on the boat, going fishing, camping, taking a stroll through Cornell's Botanical Gardens, or anything else that your heart desires. Hiking or not, I’ve gotchu.

02. DO WE HAVE TO HIKE FOR an Adventure Session?

Get in touch and this is one of the first things that we work on figuring out together. During your initial call with me, I will help you see what is possible for your session and begin developing custom collection options with you. It will depend on where you want to go, and what you want to do!

03. How long should our session be?

Um... I'll probably be sad if you don't. 
But for real, yes, you're absolutely welcome to bring your pet(s) along. Just make sure to let me know so that when I scout for locations, I make sure to only include locations that are pet-friendly!

04. Can we bring our pets?

Truthfully? It will make for bomb-ass, dramatic photos. It will also make for a story. Think of the adventure. As long as the weather isn’t treacherous to travel in, your adventure session is still on. I’m particularly skilled at adjusting plans last minute. Together through the planning process, we will establish a set of backup plans that are just as good, if not better than the original.

05. WHAT IF IT RAINS, SNOWS, OR WEATHER TURNS BAD?

Life is an journey best experienced together.

Hello Adventure,
