Alaska Elopement & INTIMATE Wedding Photographer

Your love story is special, unique, and all yours and deserves to be documented in a way that showcases that!

It's not just all about the jaw dropping backdrops(although those are really fun!). It's about how you make each other laugh so hard that your cheeks hurt, or the kisses you give each other between reading your vows. It's about the quiet moments as you hug and take in the scenery.

The way you smooth your partners hair out of their face when it's windy or the way you help each other across the terrain or sneak silly faces at each other.

It's about all those memories that make your heart smile and feel like you.

- Meet Donna


If you're down for cheesy puns and dad jokes, going on an adventure, having memorable experiences and just an all around good time and aren't afraid of a little dirt or water, then I'm your gal!

I truly believe that when you feel your best, you look your best and that helps make the best photos that actually showcase YOU!

My goal is to get to know you both and bring light hearted fun to your session to calm the nerves and allow you to live in the moment and not worry about being in front of the camera.

Holaaa!! I'm Donna!

Just like Shakira's hips, these reviews don't lie...

Angela & Christopher

My fiancee and I are long distance; she made it easy to coordinate, plan, and pick a location for our photoshoot. She is prompt, creative, professional, and especially kind. She made cues for us simple and fun. She had so many ideas about where and how to pose so we could get the pictures we wanted. We LOVED how our gallery turned out!! There were still pictures and gifs included for us to share with our families and friends. Not to mention the variety of picture sizes, canvases, etc. she can make for us to put in our home. Look no further and book Donna ASAP!

"Donna was an absolute delight to work with!t"

Mitch & Allie

She helped me with my surprise proposal and everything worked out perfectly! She was so responsive and helped me brainstorm with multiple phone calls in preparation to make sure everything went smoothly.

If you are looking for a photographer in her area, she is the one for the job! The pictures are incredible. She went above and beyond anything I could have asked for to make sure we had everything we needed to make the day perfect. Donna is the bomb.com!

"Donna was an absolute dream to work with"

Mackenzie & Jacob

 I was trying to surprise my husband while we were on a last minute trip to Alaska, and even though she had just come back from traveling across the U.S for a wedding.. she was super communicative and helpful with me and went above and beyond to help me surprise him. She helped with location ideas and made the entire process super easy. She even went to a coffee place to buy us hot chocolate for part of the photos. She made my husband and I feel sooooo comfortable during the whole experience. We both were super nervous in the beginning but instantly felt comfortable! It was about 11 degrees while we were taking photos and Donna brought along hand warmers and extra things to keep us warm ❤️ I cannot recommend her enough for photos! The photos attached are just the first few we got right after our session which was alittle over a week ago and I am completely obsessed with them. We cannot wait to get the rest ❤️ If you are looking for someone to make you feel comfortable and make your moment perfect. Choose Donna!! 

"Donna is such an amazing person and photographer! "

To rate Donna out of 5 stars simply does not do justice to her or her work... Donna was very understanding and helpful through our numerous phone calls, giving lots of advice and recommendations. Though her portfolio is outstanding itself, she was extremely positive and gave off a lot of good energy, which ultimately helped us decide to pursue her. During our elopement, she was the perfect hiking companion and made us feel so at ease while photographing us. An elopement itself is quite intimate, but it was never awkward or uncomfortable with Donna there... [We] are absolutely floored by her work. She went above and beyond our expectations, even capturing video footage of our elopement. To say she is the best person fit for the job is an understatement. We are extremely grateful to have found Donna and would highly recommend her if you are looking for someone who is laid back, yet will capture epic moments.
