By donna

Alaska proposal photographer

here to help you with your surprise proposal every step of the way!

"[We] of Donna's tent sessions and could not be happier. The photos came out AMAZING and we got them back even quicker than we expected...If you are considering booking Donna, DO IT! She made the experience so fun - we left our sessions feeling like we were leaving hanging out with a friend."

I knoooow how excited you're going to be to see the magic we made! With that in mind, my goal is to edit up a hand full of sneak peeks to send your way within 24-48 hours of the wedding! That way the photo you use to announce your wedding isn't a grainy cell shot, but a beautiful photo from one of the many moments of your day.

Well, first off, if they've been hinting that they want a photographer, then you better believe you should hire a photographer hahah!!

In addition to that, these moments are likely going to be emotional, exciting, and oh so very special and having photos to look back on and remind you of all of those feelings will be really meaningful.

Also, I'm not just there to document the proposal, I'm here to help you plan out all the details so it goes off without a hitch!

If you need help with any ideas on how to personalize it, or how to make it non suspicious, or anything along those lines, I'm here to help!

Why hire a proposal photographer?

I'm ready let's do this!

Let's get the relevant info out of the way: at 5'2", short and small, I've always been real good at hide-and-go-seek because I can hide just about anywhere hah! So no matter where your proposal adventure takes us, I should be good to go!

No onto the fun stuff:
Relationships are fun, messy, weird, silly, romantic, sexy, and everything in between and I think your photos should 100% showcase those nuances and qualities of your relationship!

I'm here for all the couples who aren't afraid to be themselves, embrace the weird and just have a good time.

I love hanging out with people, chitchatting, laughing until it hurts, telling/hearing stories and just overall having a good time. If that sounds like something you're down for then you're in the right place!

Hey, I'm Donna

How can we make this a surprise?

It really depends from couple to couple! If you've been planning to get photos done already and your partner isn't suspicious you two can plan just a regular photoshoot together and then you and I can chat on the side.

If your partner is likely to get suspicious then we'll have to plan it around something you've already got in the books or I can go incognito to play paparazzi for your somewhere haha!

How many images are included in the packages?

If including kids/family/friends/pets or all of the above would make your proposal that much more special to you and your partner, then absolutely! I highly recommend only including people that are special to you, truly support your relationship, and are good at keeping secrets ;) And if they're not good at keeping secrets then loop them in at the last minute haha!
