Oregon Elopements

"From the moment we started chatting about locations, we were at complete ease. everything about dawn made it so ridiculously easy to trust her! her talent, her personality, her ideas - we had zero worries about our day! & to put things into context, we were flying to the pnw from the opposite side of canada, which is crazy in itself. the day of, she found the absolute coolest cabins for us to stay in & had already scoped out the most epic locations, so when i say complete trust, she literally made our day what it was! the best part was that she felt like a friend we’d known for years. we were completely comfortable on camera with her & it shows in photos (which are beyond magical, p.s.)! we’re entirely grateful that dawn was there through our planning to our vows - it’s no exaggeration when i say we couldn’t have done it all without her. now we’re planning to come back to the pnw for our 1-year anniversary to have dawn take our photos again! so freaking thankful to have met this soul & to have been given the most gorgeous photos of our big day! she captured who we are as a (now married) couple beyond what my wildest dreams could have imagined! BEST DAY EVER.

"It’s really difficult to put into words what it’s like to have your photo taken my Dawn. It’s so much more than just receiving beautiful photos. Getting your photo taken can be an awkward and often nerve racking experience; Dawn knows that so she goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. Minutes into our shoot the nerves and awkward feelings we had were completely gone, which meant the photos she captured were natural and tender...to this day the photos she captured are our favorite ones we’ve ever had done. Since our first shoot, we’ve booked her for 2 more...our only wish is that we could go back in time and have her shoot our wedding. Mark my words, Dawn is the best it gets. Don’t wait, book her!"

"Dawn is not only an incredibly talented photographer but an amazing person. I was not confident in my body for my maternity shoot but knew I would enjoy the photos after. Dawn helped me feel comfortable and confident in myself, which is evident in the photos. One thing I admire about Dawn is her sense of wonder and adventure. The photo shoots become more than just taking pictures, but an experience in itself. Our family is so happy with the moments captured and look forward to reflecting back in the years to come. I cannot thank and recommend Dawn enough."

"I cried actual tears. Not the fake instagram kind of tears where people say "oh my gosh I’m crying” and they’re really not, but real life drops of salty water streamed down my face as my husband and I scrolled through our photos. Dawn captured us in a way no one else ever has before. She let us be us. She let my husband BE my husband, weird and goofy and awkward at times. He feels more comfortable in front of Dawn’s camera than anyone else's. That’s partially because liquid courage helps during a photoshoot but also because she doesn’t show up as a photographer, she comes as a friend! She's there to hang out, talk about your mutual love of dogs and snap the moments that are real, raw, unposed and genuine to who you are as a couple! We love her immensely and always will - our go to girl for photos!"

"We didn’t just get beautiful photos to hang on a wall, we got moments captured that show our truest selves and our love, and for that we will be forever grateful! We cannot wait for her to capture all of our big moments. Hanging out with Dawn feels like just that, like you are with a friend you’ve known forever- laughing and talking about life. You will probably even forget about the camera. Plenty of people can deliver pretty pictures, but not many will adventure with you to create unforgettable moments and create an experience for you! Dawn exudes magic, and puts that magic and creativity into capturing your most precious memories. She’ll be your biggest cheerleader and your ginger fairy godmother. BOOK HER. HIRE HER. It will be the best decision you’ll ever make."
