About Me

I'm Dawn. An Oregon based intimate wedding and elopement photographer.

I'm about scaling mountainsides and running through traffic for the perfect shot. Forgetting what I went to school for (photography, whoops) and breaking all the rules. And 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.

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

“There is one thing the photography must contain, the humanity of the moment. This kind of photography is realism. But realism is not enough - there has to be vision, and the two together can make a good photograph.

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”
