The Landing Lobby, Costa Mesa

I have been using Donna for more than two years to photograph our commercial projects, and could not be happier. She always accommodates our marketing department's requests related to file size, resolution & misc. editing.

She maintains a flexible schedule, and has a knack for capturing the interesting aspects of the commercial office space behind the lens.

Her support has definitely upped the ante in our Company's print and online marketing, and the product will be featured in our new website launching later 2019. Thank-you, Donna!

Donna Edman is a professional through and through. She captures the very essence of her subject and brings out the very best. My photo session was well-lit, well-posed in a small window of time. I have used the photos in my business materials. As an image consultant, I need to look my very best! … And Donna did just that.

We knew Donna Edman from seeing her award-winning photos and from being photographed (headshots) by her, so we at the Museum of Teaching and Learning (MOTAL) decided to have Donna create the catalog images of MOTAL's artifacts.

We were thrilled we made the right decision. Donna is easy (and fun) to work with. She is efficient and keeps pricing fair. Plus she definitely has a knack for bringing out the personalities of her subjects--including inanimate objects, like museum artifacts! Our museum is proud of our photo collection that helps us post the “Artifact of the Month” on our website at and keep an illustrated catalog in our mini-museum in Fullerton.

We would definitely refer others to Donna for their business (and personal) photography.

I am a professor at Cal State Fullerton, and at the very last minute, I had Donna come in to my class to shoot some "action shots" of me, as well as a couple head shots, which she graciously was willing to do. I could quickly tell she knew her craft, and she quickly helped me feel comfortable. The end results were exactly what I was hoping for, and she was great to work with through the entire process. Thanks Donna!

We had Donna Edman take photos of our power station sites and staff, including some corporate head shots. Donna is a highly talented photographer with a knack for making her subjects feel at ease so they photograph beautifully and naturally.

She also took fantastic shots of our infrastructure, working with twilight and shadows.

In addition, Donna is professional, efficient and easy to work with.

I can't stand having my picture taken but Donna made the experience pleasant and comfortable. She has such a delightful personality and it's just nice being around her! Her work is superb and I was so pleased with the quality of the photos. It was hard deciding which head shot to pick!

I'm my own worst critic and to actually like a picture of myself was amazing but the process of choosing which one to use was aided by Donna's skillful and artistic eyes. I'm so happy with the finished product and I would totally recommend her to anyone!

Donna Edman is an extremely talented photographer. She came and took photos of our staff. Not only were the pictures gorgeous, my staff had a great time. Donna is a professional in everything that she does!!

Receiving free money for college is not something that can be achieved quietly. The means to posture and educate middle class and affluent families starts with a photograph. The images Donna  produced for me are now implemented throughout the spectrum of tools used in my business, ranging from audio CD covers, to bio-sheets, to stand up banners.

THANK YOU Donna for using your exceptional talent and passion to capture and reflect commitment, trust and dedication toward my cause. Donna, wherever life takes you from project to project, may happiness always go with you!

When Donna Edman photographs people, she captures their energy, their passion, their heart. Her "eye", especially her eye for light, takes her subjects and their surroundings to another level. I have referred my branding clients to Donna because of the unique power of her work.

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed working with Donna on a photography project. I am a fine artist and I needed high quality images taken of my art. She took excellent pictures that I now use for reproducing my work. Thank you so much Donna. I am looking forward to using you again!

For my business I had to take some professional new photos for a website and social media. I don't really like having my picture taken when I know it is because I cannot naturally look comfortable smiling on command. Also my last photos from another photographer didn't really look great. Wow what a difference with Donna Photography. Not only did I have a natural appearance with a great smile but the picture came out awesome. The way she sets up the lighting, backdrop, and camera is all pro. I highly recommend her.

Donna Edman is a true angel. I represent a non-profit program that helps provide free sports training and biblically based life skills to foster and at-risk youth. We had a last minute opportunity to participate in a media event with a pro boxer and HBO sports. We contacted Donna two days prior to the event and not only did she clear her schedule but she also donated her photography services. There were a lot of other professional photographers there due to the nature of the event and media presence. I can say that the only one who was truly able to capture the essence of the hearts of each kid was Donna. It was such a special event for them and that reads in each and every photo taken by her. She truly blessed us with her gift by telling our story through pictures. Let her bless you too!

Donna helped me with a professional business photo for social media and my website. I was very impressed with her portfolio and her eye for capturing personality. She helped me feel comfortable being in front of the camera, giving direction for best use of light and clothing choice, worked with my ideas, and even found the perfect model I requested for a specific shot. She is very personable, fun, professional, and the turnaround time for finished portraits was super fast! I highly recommend her for anyone looking to do a professional portrait or fashion shoot.

Donna was absolutely a joy to work with...the perfect mix of professionalism and fun! She made me feel completely at ease during our session. Also, I couldn't be more pleased with my business portrait. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a professional photographer who does top quality work.

I loved sitting for Donna for my head shots. I use the shots everywhere I can (letterhead, website, social media, etc). They're great. Donna has a rare gift of being able to make people like me (skittish in front of cameras) feel very at ease. I like to say Donna made me look better than I really look, but I agree with her when she says she only brought out the true me. Give Donna a try. You'll love what she does for you, and you'll have fun throughout the whole process, too!

It was great having Donna photograph our club members. I hate having my picture taken, but she made me feel so comfortable it was a pleasure. The pictures were fabulous.

I have never had a session like I did with Donna Edman Photography. Donna's approach made me forget about the camera and brought out a natural and relaxed side of me. I was pleasantly surprised and I would highly recommend Donna Edman Photography great results.

Donna was absolutely wonderful, so accommodating... She fit me into her schedule at the last minute & I highly recommend her. I needed an unusual background for a business photo and she found a way to make it work out perfectly for me.
