Creating Beautiful Images with Couples Who Cherish Those Fleeting Moments in Time.

My love for photography began at an early age over 35 yrs ago. When I was adopted at the age of 8 I received a film camera as a gift. I then turned into my family and friends photographer.  In High School and College I took film photography and was sad when it turned to digital. However now 25 yrs later I'm a full time digital wedding and portrait photographer. 

Weddings are more than capturing the love between two people. It's so much more for me. I love seeing and hearing love. We are surrounded by love and it makes me happy every day to be able to do what I love. "If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life."  Marc Anthony

Photography is my passion and will awlays be a part of my soul.

Deanna created such beautiful memories of our wedding. We are so thankful to have had her photograph our wedding. She is professional but also so fun to work with, she really made us feel comfortable as well as our whole bridal party. She is a great communicator and was always quick to respond to any question as well. Thank you for all your hard work and the unforgettable images Deanna!

Deanna is absolutely amazing! We used her for our engagement photos and our wedding and our photos are stunning! She is great at suggesting locations that work with the setting you would like and it great at giving feedback while taking photos to make sure they turn out great! She had some fun ideas for us to try and those are some of our favorite photos! She makes you feel comfortable and listens to what you want! Our indoor and outdoor pictures all turned out perfect!
For our wedding, the sun was setting and she got some amazing shots with the sun and the glare of the sun casting over my husband and I that are AMAZING. She saw it coming and made sure we took advantage of the scenery.
I cannot recommend Deanna enough!

My husband and I have used Deanna as a photographer multiple times. The first job was to take photos at a 60th Birthday surprise party. She was able to work the crowd and get the posed and candid shots we were hoping for. She captured the memories of the evening perfectly! When I got engaged I immediately went to Deanna for our engagement photos and subsequently our wedding photos. She did a wonderful job engaging me and the wedding party. She had great ideas and was open to my ideas as well. I would recommend Deanna 100%!

Deanna (Drive the Image) photographed our outdoor wedding in October. She was a pleasure to work with and took the time to listen to what our goals were with ceremony photos. One of the things that really drew us to Drive the Image over other photographers was Deanna’s editing style. My husband and I see lots of photographs where the editing is so heavy it distorts what the day looked like. It was very important to us to to find a photographer that would have a light hand at editing because we wanted the photos to be a true representation of our wedding day. We were very happy with what Deanna produced!

I was connected to Deanna through my DJ at Aisle Finesse and It took us three tries to make our 2020 pandemic wedding happen, but Deanna and her team were amazing and flexible with us every step of the way. She made the day so special by capturing all the special moments and navigating the crazy wind at Abasin. She kept us organized and made sure to capture all the things that mattered the most to me and my husband. I loved that she captured the beautiful yellow fall colors behind me and my dad waking off the lift, which was symbolic to me since it was my late mother’s favorite color. On a hectic day, she stayed calm under pressure and made it all seamless. What I appreciate the most about Deanna is that she rushed to get all of my photos edited and ready to go as she was planning her own wedding that had to be rescheduled because of the wildfires. She is a true professional and genuinely cares about capturing what matters to you. Thank you for everything!!!

Deanna did an awesome job taking pictures of my husband and I very small intimate wedding. She even put up with 6 inches of snow and 22 degree weather in Lory State Park. She captured the amazing winter wonderland that mother nature provided. I couldn’t be any happier with her work. I would definitely recommend her.

I love Deanna's work as a photographer. That is why I hired her to take photos of my wedding on June 15, 2021. They are amazing photos and I love them all. She is fun to work with, kind and professional. She is a photographer you want to have taking photos of your wedding or even just family photos. She has a wonderful eye for pictures. Also, she dealt with our grumpy child wonderfully and even got a few good smirks out of him. Trust me he was being extremely stubborn and she got one of our favorite shots with him smiling a little smile. I love even the candid ones with us dancing.

Deanna was absolutely great to work with. From when I first contacted her through the ceremony and beyond. She has a fantastic personality and customizes to what your needs are! She’s not just a great photographer but she’s a great person and captures all of your memories! Couldn’t have been happier with her!
