Hi I'm Dawn, a wedding photographer based in Bend, OR.


An Oregon based intimate wedding and elopement photographer. Capturing love stories in the Pacific Northwest and Worldwide.

More than my passion for photography is my passion for people and story telling. I'm about scaling mountain sides and running through traffic for the perfect shot. About throwing out anything posed or traditional, and breaking all the rules. Most of all, I'm about documenting raw, genuine moments and emotion. Even if your mom is ugly crying and the best man is taking shots of tequila before walking down the aisle, I want to be right there, camera in hand, getting every moment as it happens!

If you connect with that, I want to third wheel and capture your hot love and emotion.


kind words
