Sailing in Sausalito

Imagine leaving Charleston, SC before dawn and landing in San Francisco at 10am PST. Sounds easy enough right (just add caffeine)? Well then imagine being on a sailboat in Sausalito by 2pm PST, camera in tow and braving the bay – camera hanging off the side of the boat. I love to make pictures for amazing people (aka living the dream). Here’s to a blessed 2015!


Natalie & Will

Here are just a couple of my favorites from last week’s engagement session. We had a fantastic time together, making some memorable engagement pictures on UGA’s North Campus, a little bit of downtown Athens, and then finally at Mama’s Boy. Sadly they weren’t open during our photo-shoot, so I made sure to pay them a visit the next morning. Athens is always a treat to photograph, especially at this time of year.

Kimberly & Kevin

I love the simplicity of these images. Yet within the simplicity of this engagement session, there is a sense of calm, masculinity and love that shines through. These are just a few of my favorite images. View the rest of the session here.

Love by the Savannah River

Lindsey & Justin

I feel very blessed to have great clients like Lindsey & Justin. Their love for each other is a darling thing to witness. We had the best time making pictures for their engagement on the Savannah River; capturing their beautiful smiles and lovely personality. These are just a couple of my favorite images from their engagement session. Enjoy!

Nerd/gear alert: most of these images are straight out of camera. The color from the Leica M9 is absolutely wonderful. As with any camera, the more you shoot it, the better it gets. There is something about how the reds, blues and greens are so rich looking. Much better than my DSLR.

A Southern Countryside Engagement Session for Addison & Chris by Donnan Photo

Addy & Chris

It was a joy to photograph Addison and Chris’ engagement session in the Georgia countryside. They have spent countless hours together on this property, so it was only natural to also have their pictures here. It really doesn’t get much cuter than this folks. Pressed jeans, boots and a favorite ball cap. This just goes to show that whatever your style is – just be yourself in front of the camera. You’re going to look beautiful.
