There are no words that describe the way Dawn’s pictures make us feel. With all the options of wedding photographers in Pittsburgh, we are so grateful that we found Dawn who perfectly portrayed our day. Dawn truly has so many gifts. She is beyond creative, enthusiastic about her career, and absolutely hilarious! She puts everything she has and everything she is into making couples’ dreams come true through her work. Her talent is immeasurable and her portraits have no price tag. Our photos are not only immediate memories of our special day, but they are pictures we will share with our kids and grandkids. We love the detail shots, we love the candid shots, and we love the shots that show our emotions. We relive our day every time we look through our pictures. We loved that she researched our venue and surrounding areas, and she came prepared with Pinterest pictures to help us pose. Seriously, Dawn is the best!! SIMPLY AMAZING!!! We can’t thank you for capturing every moment of our special day!

Who am I? 
I'm a detail oriented, portrait obsessed, awkward, occasionally hilarious wedding + boudoir photographer based in Pennsylvania. Always ready to hop on any kind of plane, train or automobile to take some magical, love-filled wedding photos. I've got a bunch of pets, am forever changing my hair color, and am married to a vegan, punk loving, ginger. I'm an LGBTQ+ friendly photographer who believes love is amazing and am excited to photograph people lucky enough to find it.

Do I sound like someone you would like to be a part of your wedding day?
