Hi! We are Nick and Erin Donner.
We are a fun-loving, adventure-seeking, and creative husband and wife and we are passionate about making photos that people can be proud of. Whether we are capturing images of you, your loved ones, your business, or your next great adventure—we are on your side, working to make you look your best. Our clients can tell the difference between good photography and bad photography. They don’t want their images to continue adding to the digital noise that keeps building up in all our lives, but they are unsure and overwhelmed about how to do it. We are the photography experts to teach you how! Our clients end up with images that get shared more, seen more, and treasured forever.
Erin leads the way on all of our PERSONAL work, focusing on families, newborns, weddings, and creative portraiture. She is great at connecting and pulling out genuine emotion—and also an expert in the technical stuff: how to pose people, what to wear, the best locations, when lighting looks best, and how to use color and composition to express feeling. Erin’s work has been featured in print and online for Washingtonian Magazine, DC Modern Luxury Weddings, Virginia Bride, WV Weddings, Washington Family Life, and On Tap Magazine and has won multiple Wed Awards.
Nick takes on all of our CORPORATE work, mostly working on headshots, creative and business portraiture, marketing, and architectural work. Over the last decade of his career he has photographed presidents, all-star athletes, creative entrepreneurs, CEOs of billion dollar companies, and prominent members of the intelligentsia. His work has been featured in print and online for several national publications including USA Today, the Washington Post, and US News and World Report and a whole bunch of local magazines and newspapers throughout the country.
