weddings

Congratulations --- You're getting married!  This is the beginning of a truly joyful and magical lifetime together.  I Believe in Love,  I  Believe  in   Partnerships,  and  I Believe in You.  My husband and I  have been married  over 25 years. We have had some amazing years and some hard years together but our Love, Trust and Partnership in each other has gotten us through everything that has challenged us.

The excitement and anticipation you are feeling  is very real.    I remember    planning  and   creating   everything  for  our Wedding  but I  also   remember  the overwhelming feelings of  stress  while turning our  Wedding Dreams  into reality.

THE DTP EXPERIENCE 

My part in your day should not be stressful in any way.   I am here for you and your fiance' throughout your photography journey.  I am here to work with your wedding planner and finely tune your wedding day timeline and specifically tailor it to your needs.  We will work together during your engagement session and you will  see just how  fun posing and  portraits  can  be.  I truly look forward to every moment of your wedding and every detail that you've planned because that is who I am at heart.  I love planning, I love details and I love to capture the best of everyone plus many of the little candid moments in between.

Once we've confirmed that I am available for your Wedding date, I'd  love to get to know you two better!  Let's meet in person.  I can't wait to chat and start making your photography dreams come true.  

We get to know each other 
over a cup of coffee,  or sweet treat!

We'll make things official by signing a contract containing all of my responsibilities towards the two of you - My Bride and Groom.  You may have someone gifting my services to you --- that is amazing! The contract will be between the three of us.  I want you to feel confident that I have your Photography dreams and wishes at heart.

Let's make things official.

I cannot wait to get the two of you in front of my camera!  Your engagement session will be our first time working together.  This is such an important session for many reasons.  You'll see how I work with posing, work in the environment we're in and just how something that sounds so ridiculous can look so amazing.   I may or may not have a little happy dance too when we get the perfect shot!

Love, laughter and time to be you at your engagement session.

Working in the Wedding Industry has benefited me with many relationships.  Are you looking for an amazing baker, I know some phenomenal bakers, how about a tailor, I know one of those too.  If I don't have a resource for you, I absolutely have contacts that I trust to ask for referrals from.  

I'm here to help make recommendations, coordinate timelines and more...

“Donna is truly one of the sweetest people you will ever meet! She will make you look and feel amazing. My husband and I both felt instantly comfortable when we were working with Donna and LOVED how our pictures turned out. They were beautiful and showed our personality as a couple. We love Donna and would 100% recommend her for photos in the future!”

"MY HUSBAND AND I BOTH FELT INSTANTLY COMFORTABLE WHEN WE WERE WORKING WITH DONNA AND LOVED HOW OUR PICTURES TURNED OUT." 

THEY HAVE THE KINDEST THINGS TO SAY

"Working with Donna was a complete pleasure. She called ahead of the session to discuss expectations, offering suggestions on what to wear and how we would be able to take advantage of the lighting in our home. Donna put everyone at ease during the session and was able to tease sweet moments out of our kids and dog. She captured the classic family poses as well as unexpected fun quirky candid shots that are family favorites. The photos were delivered in a timely manner and it was very easy to work with the files and submit them to a card printing service. Can’t wait to have her back again. "

 "Donna Thompson‘s photography exceeded my expectations. Our family has had several photo sessions throughout the years but this was my favorite. She helped with choosing a location, knowing the best time of day to get the best lighting and made my family feel very comfortable. She actually took the time to suggest poses and positioned us to get the best pictures possible! Turnaround was quick and we will definitely use her again in the future…"
