"[We] did...one 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.
Don't want to feel awkward during your session?! Well, I'm a huge believer that if you feel your best, you look your best, and then as a result you get some bomb photos.
Enter: Date Sessions & Events. They put a whole new twist on 'photoshoots' and 'dates' by creating a fun mashup of the two so that you feel like you're on a fun date rather than a photoshoot.
These dates are are for couples who enjoy having a little fun, adventuring, thinking outside the box, investing in experiences together and meeting some other cool couples!
While any session with me is focused on having a good time, these themed dates give you an activity to focus on and enjoy. From splashing around a lake to exploring glaciers there is no limit to what a date session can be!
You will laugh, play, and enjoy a fun date and get some sweet photos of it all!
"Every interaction we’ve had so far with Donna has been amazing! She’s fun and professional! We are AKWARD! And she did a great job helping us get great photos that don’t look posed or forced! Highly recommend!!!!"
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!
These date sessions were inspired by my husband and I getting creative with our date nights in 2020(ya know, the c word and all ahah). I'm passionate about encouraging couples to date each other no matter what stage of the relationship they're in and it just makes me so happy to be able to document the memories as well! Plus, I get to hang out with other awesome couples (YOU!!), which is the best part!
(if you haven't seen That 70's show... well, this is awkward... disregard!)
For any events including food allergies and intolerances will be asked. You are welcome to bring your own alcoholic beverages but for legalities I cannot provide alcohol. I will have sparkling waters and other non-alcoholic beverages.
This is the second annual Camping Date at Lulu's Tents and Events!
Need a staycation? This date is for you! Pack your cozy campfire clothes and an overnight bag for a Knik River getaway. There will be live acoustic music, campfire vibes, professionally catered food, non-alcoholic beverages provided(BYOB if wanted), a fun photoshoot around the property and in your tent, and a nice evening around the fire with other couples. Then finish the date off with an overnight stay in a canvas bell tent.
Each tent has a bed and all amenities you'll need including a buddy heater for extra warmth, you will also have your own private solo stove. Just bring yourself and any toiletries and clothes you need for the event.
There is no running water, but a camp shower is available and there is a porta-potty.
You are welcome to hang out around the fire with everyone for event, or if you want some privacy you can snuggle around your own solo stove by your tent as well. Whatever suits your style!
From the moment you book until the date, I’m right there by your side. You’ll get all my Guides, Resources, and Tips to get you prepped for the date day and so you know exactly how to prepare!
Once we have all the deets hashed out it's time to book! This is all super easy and done online through my client software. All that’s needed is a signed contract (which can be done easily online) and a 50% retainer to hold your space. Due to the nature of the event any cancellations will be non-refundable unless another party is available to take your place.
If you're loving what you're reading and are set on booking, we can chat via email or hop on a call to get to know each other more and if you have anything specific in mind for what you'd like to include in your date or anything like that!

The Lake Date and Camping Date are both going to be in the evenings after 4, and your arrival can be later if you can't be there right at start time. Just let me know when we're setting up your designated shoot time!
These dates are allll about you and your partner, so let's keep it that way! While we love kiddos and fur babies so much, these events would not be the best outing for them. So be sure to find sitters!
