DONAE

I love people and tend to bring in a bunch of mischievious energy with me when I walk into a room. I have a gift of making my clients feel at ease and comfortable when we're together. I enjoy spending time with my clients getting to know them and capturing the true essence of each person. 

When I'm not behind the camera, I spent quality time with my loved ones. I have a 7 year old son who is the most mischievious little monkey on earth - I have no clue where he gets that from! ;) I also love to travel and discover new places, new cuisine and different cultures. Travel has given me a well-rounded take on the world and its diverse cultures. I've been traveling and living abroad since I was 21. I'm originally from South Africa and immigrated to the U.S. 15 years ago. 

I am naturally drawn to romance, fantasy, whimsical and of course sassy! I shoot over 20 weddings a year locally, nationally and internationally.  Combining my job with travel seems like the perfect fit for me! My photography services are available for Weddings, Family Sessions, Boudoir, Glam, Head Shots, Pageant & Model Portfolios, Maternity and Children

A session with me is a full experience. You'll leave with extra confidence and feeling on top of the world. We have fun in our shoots. That's a guarantee!  I also offer and extensive array of clothing, bridal gowns, lingerie and fun outfits. (inquire on rental info)

I am a Member of the MNPPA (Minnesota Professional Photographers of America) and WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International) as well as a Founding Member of Twin Cities Wedding Professionals and Wish Upon A Wedding Minnesota.

And PS FYI: My name is pronounced Don-ay! ;)
