“When we met up with Dawn to go over our wedding, we instantly became friends. She understood what we wanted and knew exactly how to capture it. Her attention to detail, light, style, and movement makes you think she’s been doing professional photography for many years. She captures every moment you want on your wedding day and you don’t even have to tell her, she just knows! Aside from taking awesome pictures, she’s also super organized, punctual, kind, and quick at replying to my emails. The planning process went so smoothly and she was a joy to work with. There’s never an idea too adventurous for Dawn, in fact it makes her even more inspired.”

“There was two things I knew I wanted for my wedding when we first got in engaged; I wanted it to be in the fall and I wanted Dawn as our photographer. In fact my husband and I weren’t engaged for more than an hour before we agreed we had to have her and sat down to email her. To us the pictures where one of the most important things of our wedding and we believed Dawn was the perfect person to capture that and she most definitely was! She did our engagement, my boudoir and our wedding pictures and they all turned out incredible. She was able to capture our love, happiness and style in such a beautiful way that to us each picture is literally perfect. Not only did she take the most amazing pictures but she was fun to be around. By time she left my husband, family and I were sad to see her leave. She made us all feel so comfortable and excited about what we had done to make the day special. In fact by the end of the night my dad came to me and said “I see why you wanted her. She is incredible.” Both my husband and I are so thankful we had her as our photographer. She gave us the most unbelievable pictures and we love her.”

“Dawn is amazing!!! She has done so many shoots for me! She is now my photographer that I choose for everything! She did my senior, couples, Christmas, engagement, boudoir and wedding photos! My now husband and I were supposed to get married on the Virgin islands, and then had to cancel due to the Zika virus. Since it was so close to the wedding we searched multiple places and had to change the date a handful of times. She worked with me through the whole process! To top it off, the wedding site we chose was extremely remote. We had to hike through the woods, hop in the river, and walk down river about 400 yards just to get to the wedding site. She is seriously amazing and her photography is to die for. It is beautiful lighting and very natural. She captures all the pictures you hope a photographer will. She is an adventurer and will hike in as far as you want to get those perfect pictures. You will not be disappointed if you go with Dawn Photo! “

“Our situation was a bit different than most as my husband and I planned our Oregon elopement having never been to Oregon and with zero contacts or referrals. Through a series of lucky events I came across Dawn’s blog and had a hunch she would be perfect. Scrolling through Dawn’s blog I could see that she took amazing images; but what made me book her was her passion & hunger. I could tell that with each shoot she was trying new things, improving at a very rapid rate & blowing her competition out of the water. Confession… I love to see people follow their passion but I have a real soft spot for people who actually work hard at achieving goals and Dawn puts in the work!
Ill be honest… I was incredibly nervous as we wouldn’t meet until the morning of our event and I didn’t have a back up. I had never made such a big decision without referrals and I knew the importance of capturing our special day since our friends & family would not be attending.
Dawn arrived the day of our elopement excellent spirits and even helped facilitate a surprise gift from my out of town sister! During our vow exchange, Dawn quietly snapped images and was very respectful of the intimacy in those moments – I am so thankful to her for this! After we said our vows she was kind enough to snap a few “traditional” pictures and even enjoyed a some wine with us. That evening Dawn sent over a few photos so we could share our big news with friends & family.

Needless to say, our experience was greater than any we had EVER hoped for. Not only did we receive images that will be enjoyed for a lifetime but we gained an amazing friend. We plan to be forever clients and cannot wait for her to capture our next milestone!”

“Dawn was great to work with! What I loved most is that she was enthusiastic and genuinely as excited for our big day as we are. She was enthusiastic and committed to carrying out our wishes. She stayed focused and kept us on track throughout the day. She was prompt in getting ‘sneak peeks’ out to us and accommodating to requests and changes after we received our pictures. Would definitely recommend to others!”

“I found Dawns website one day while searching the internet for a photographer for our wedding. When I Dawn Photography, I had to show my at the time fiance. As we were looking at her photos we knew she was who we wanted to shoot our wedding. Later we realized that Dawn had taken Brant’s senior photos several years prior and we just knew it was perfect.

Dawn is not only a GREAT photographer, but she is always so happy and such a joy to be around. We had so much fun taking our engagement photos! She made us feel so comfortable the whole time and the shoot was far more fun than Brant and I could have imagined.

Not only did we have a blast taking pictures for the wedding, but I could not imagine receiving more beautiful pictures at the end of it. My husband and I decided to do a first look before the wedding and the photos will be forever some of my favorites! Dawn has a great eye and always has cute ideas for poses. Our wedding party was a loud and fun group and Dawn was able to capture the fun times we were having together before the wedding.

We were so fortunate to have picked such a fun and talented photographer to capture the most fun and wonderful day of our lives. We continue to receive endless compliments on how amazing our photos are and all of the credit for the incredible shots goes to Dawn!

We have also had the pleasure of working with her on a couple of different occasions and there is never a dull moment! Dawn is a fun and easy going person and always makes you feel comfortable! My husband and I always suggest her to everyone we know looking for a photographer!”

“I have had a total of three photo shoots with Dawn from Dawn Photography. She is such an amazing photographer and is very easy to relate too. I have had prior experience with modeling and Dawn gave me tips that I would have never even thought of. She made me feel so comfortable in every aspect and the outcome of the pictures were always way better than I had even hoped! The pictures are amazing and they looked like me in the end but in my best light, my best feedback I have gotten were from Dawns photos!  Thank you Dawn for such AMAZING shoots!”

“Dawn is beyond amazing! She is professional and easy to work with. She never made us feel silly or like we had bad ideas and our photos are beautiful.

My only regret is that I didn’t book her for a longer amount of time!!
Worth every penny and now I have amazing photos of our day that I can treasure forever.”
