Meet Arielle of Arielle Doneson Photography:
From my earliest memories I’ve loved the pictures in books – drawings of characters in fairy tales, etchings of scenes in classic novels. These romantic images continue to inspire me as I travel the world telling true-life love stories through photographs. My style has been described as romantic, artistic, luminous, passionate, joyful, emotional, warm, and intimate.
I am a fine art wedding photographer. I adore the way that analogue film captures light and I shoot both film and digital because I believe that each has a unique and beautiful way of documenting a wedding day. When I see the potential for a stunning moment, I will give direction. Otherwise I want to be soft and unobtrusive so that you can enjoy your day. I believe that your wedding day is about you celebrating your love for each other. My luminous style comes from an obsession with light. This pairs perfectly with outdoor celebrations and naturally lit surroundings.
In addition to being a photographer, I am a former professional opera singer, an adoring wife to my literature professor husband, a doting mama to our baby son, and a lover of Victorian novels. I love writing letters by hand because it makes me feel like a character in Jane Austen. I think that the occasional meal made up entirely of chocolate chip cookie dough is perfectly acceptable, and I am a connoisseur of coffee ice cream. While I’m thrilled every time my work is featured on a blog or in print, nothing is sweeter than hearing how much my clients love their images. I feel deeply honored every time I pick up my camera and enter the world of a wedding.
I’m currently based in Boston but I love to travel and have an up-t0-date passport.
My work has been featured on Style Me Pretty, Grey Likes, The Wedding Chicks, Ruffled, 100 Layer Cake, Elizabeth Anne Designs, Brides, Good Housekeeping, People Magazine, Rêverie Magazine, The Knot, Style Unveiled, Merci New York, Brooklyn Bride, Lemonade & Lenses, Landlocked Bride, Fabulously Wed, GayWeddings.com, Destination Brides, Maine Magazine, and The New York Times to name a few…
