A good photographer can take beautiful photos and have happy clients. A GREAT photographer like Dawn, takes beautiful photos, while also adding another layer of happiness to your day. Leaving you knowing that your day wouldn’t have been as great as it was, if she wasn’t there. She makes you comfortable enough to be yourself so the photos capture exactly who you are as a couple. She truly has a gift. It was a day we will never forget and we could not be happier with our experience and our photos.

from Sierra + matt

Eloping is such an intimate process and one of the biggest factors for that special day is who is capturing it and guiding you along the way. Dawn exceeded our expectations, she put all our fears to rest, she was 100% always there when we needed her, and was able to offer guidance and endless resources to make sure our day was magical. 

from Sally + James

Our time with Dawn was magical! She captured every bit of genuine emotion, connection, and love shared on our wedding day. Not only was Dawn amazing at scouting locations for us, but she truly made those locations come to life in the photos she took. It is so often that “pictures don’t do it justice”, but my goodness, these pictures do just that. The way she captured the beauty of us within the landscape was beyond. She also saw the small looks and nuances between the two of us and allowed us to be ourselves even though there was a camera there.

from Kelsey + Hunter

She is an absolute delight of a human who loves love and feels just as excited about your wedding day as you are. Dawn was such a cheerleader, and she had already thought through any and everything we either forgot or didn’t even think of. She made the day such a breeze, and we had our full trust in her from the beginning. You won’t find a more talented, hard-working or kind-hearted photographer as Dawn. Our photos have brought tears to our eyes because they are so breathtaking, allowing us to relieve this special day from every angle. It was PERFECT. We are so, so, so grateful for Dawn!
