Alana Donovan Photography | Summer Wedding

Hi there! My name is Alana Donovan, and I have been a photographer for quite some time (before digital cameras)!  I would like to say I chose the lifestyle of a photographer, but I truly believe it chose me. Being a mom was and always has been a huge part of who I am: a nurturer, a lover, a caregiver. Nonetheless picking up a camera was one of the most magical things I have ever experienced! As a young girl, I vividly remember hearing the shutter of my mother’s camera and the way my heart connected with it. It was so vivid, that I know without a doubt God put this desire in my heart as young as 12 years old. I loved everything about it and the way it allowed me to express my perspective of the world and people around me. It was MY view of the world and beauty that lies hidden within. I guess you can say it was love at first clickIMG_0489sI bought my first “big girl” camera when my daughter Lauren was born, 25 years ago. I won’t say that I knew photography would be a business for me, but it turned out that way. I’ll be the first to tell you I don’t ‘speak camera’.  I’ve never been technical, but my camera has undoubtedly become an instrument in who God calls for me to be: a creator, artist, and Believer! I don’t rely on technical terms or knowledge to capture my images. I simply use what I think every photographer needs: a passion for photography and a special connection with the people that choose you to document their memories, moments, and love stories. My repertoire ranges from newborn and senior portraiture, all the way to wedding photography.IMG_0674IMG_0470 IMG_0474Every session is truly special to me, simply because of the privilege I had in capturing it. Therefore, I love them all! However, if I had to choose a favorite, the DeWitt wedding would be a favorite! This wedding embodied what I believe to be the center of my work: LOVE. Savannah and Tanner were effortless, happy, and stunningly gorgeous. They trusted in my vision of their day being capture and more importantly, they trusted in my love for them and THEIR love! Their images are simply magical and capturing their ceremony was such a joy. Clients like these are the reason I love my job so much!IMG_0064IMG_0045 IMG_0591IMG_0601As a photographer, I wake up excited to do what I love. Photography was a race I began 17 years ago, and I have never stopped to look back. My camera always reminds me to stay focused on the One Who gave me this passion and gift. He gets all the glory for this dream I'm living.IMG_0131IMG_0313 IMG_0390 IMG_0400 IMG_0411IMG_0641 IMG_0719
