Hi, I'm Dawn!
An intimate wedding & elopement photographer.
I'll be the first to say that I'm not for everyone. I'm for those who love the in between moments, who prefer mood over technically correct (my professors would hate me for saying that. What up Fine Art Photography Degree that I don't use), who stray from the traditional and like to get a little weird, and who aren't afraid to run around or hike a mountain side to get a killer shot. I love traveling and will hop on a plane in a heartbeat to come photograph you! I sincerely hope I get the opportunity to capture your story!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm Dawn, a California girl living in Oregon with my hot husband, our two pups, and a baby girl on the way!
It still blows my mind that I get to call what I do a job, because it truly hardly ever feels like work. I love that this career allows me to constantly meet new people and explore new places. I’m so excited at the idea of creatively freezing moments that can be treasured and passed on for generations. I wholeheartedly believe this is what God created me to do and am so grateful to be able to bless others while doing what I love!
