About Veronica Dana photography: Virginia Beach-based photographer who specializes commercial, editorial portrait and wedding photography.  I started her formal art education at Parsons School of Design then moved back to Michigan to complete her BFA from The University of Michigan (go Blue). Starting as a catalog photography in ChicagoBut always knew my passion was people.

While still in  Chicago,  I went on a  vacation to Virginia Beach.  Fell in love with everything about Virginia  proud to call this State my home.  First job in Virginia was at a professional camera store. However, quickly found myself a partner in a  successfully commercial photo studio called Rothman & Donnelly Photography. After a few years, went solo as a journalistic wedding photographer.  Not to confuse her commercial clients who knew her a "Veronica Donnelly" her new business became Veronica Dana Photographer. 

About once a year try to  take the time and volunteer as a PR photographer with Operation Smile.  Have traveled to Central America 5x, South America 2x, North Africa 3x, Central Africa and Asia.  Also love working in the great USA have both US & EU passports.


Wedding Photography: Started typing the names of all my Brides and Grooms. The list was just long. However have had the pleasure in documenting over 100 weddings at countless venues over the years.   Every wedding is different, special, and unique in its way, and I work hard to be sure that my images reflect that. Your wedding may very well be the most important day of your life. Years from now, no one will remember the cake, the flowers,  or the food.  But the pictures you'll have forever.
