What Past Clients Say:
"From the time we first met I knew our photos were going to be amazing. From our engagement shoot, to the boudoir shoot, down to every last detail she beautifully photographed at our wedding. She was on top of everything, always responding to my every last question promptly. She was the best vendor I worked with during my entire wedding planning process. Our wedding photographs are magazine worthy, they are pieces of art! I really can not say enough about how thrilled I am with Dawn."
-Jessica F, Bride
"My wife and I met with several photographers and finally chose Dawn. Dawn was so much fun, talented, and had an attention to detail like none other we met. All of her photos are unique and beautiful. She arrived early on the wedding day and helped keep things organized and stress-free all while taking candid and amazing photo's! We chose Dawn for an engagement shoot (after already doing 2 with other vendors) because we knew it simply had to be re-shot by her. I assure you you'll never be disappointed or have a missed shot with her. Dawn goes above and beyond to get the pictures she and you want which is handsomely rewarded in amazing quality photos you receive back that are memories for a lifetime."
-Cody M, Groom
“Not sure how to give this review because I can not really put into words how amazing Dawn is as a person and a professional photographer. If you are looking for a talented photographer who will make your experience with pictures fun and stress free, Dawn is your photographer. From the moment I found her Instagram page and fell IN LOVE with her skills I have NEVER regretted my decision to book with Dawn. Also, listen to all of her suggestions, DO the engagement shoot, DO the sunset pictures, DO EVERYTHING. She goes above and beyond to make your day as magical as you dreamed it would be. She pays attention to what really matters to her clients! I like to call her my photography unicorn because she seriously one of a kind and is VERY good at what she does. If you don't book her, you will regret it! Side note: I just got married last weekend, have only seen my preview pictures (which I got that night and the NEXT morning) and waiting for the rest. I'm writing this review now because that is just how OBSESSED with her I am.”
-Sam C, Bride
"From our first consultation with Dawn I knew she was the photographer we had been searching high and low for. She has an amazing connection with her clients, and her generosity has been overwhelming. Dawn makes the entire process from start to finish stress-free and fun. We enjoyed the time spent with her so much. Her work is just incredible!! My biggest compliment from my wedding was how amazing my pictures are. Any photos I may ever need in the future will undoubtedly be taken by Dawn."
-Ashley L, Bride
"From the moment I spoke to Dawn, I knew I found the perfect photographer. You can hear her passion and love for what she does just by speaking to her. For me, it was important to have a photographer that was sensitive to a moment and let me tell you, she nailed it. Her love, for love, truly shines through the lens and she captures those AMAZING shots/moments. She is very experienced and was able to manhandle many people when it came to group shots and family shots in an organized way. I feel very fortunate that I had her talent, her energy, her comfort and her skills on the most amazing day of my life. She was a major reason why it was perfect. She puts 100% of her heart into what she does and I promise you, it was an honor to watch someone like her, doing her passion. Dawn, your'e fabulous! A true talent!"
-Jenna D, Bride
“We are so thankful to have had Dawn for our wedding photographer!! From the moment I saw her work for our venue, I loved her timeless style. From our engagement pictures to the our wedding photos, we LOVE them all!! Dawn was always very prepared- arriving early and scoping out photography locations. She always quickly responded to e-mails and questions. She made the wedding day flow effortlessly and kept us ahead of schedule. I so appreciated her attention to details.”
-Kathy P, Bride
“You know how when you meet a person and can instantly tell that they are genuine within the first few words they speak? That is Dawn. Aside from her work being incredible (you're here, you already know that) she is a fantastic person. My husband and I changed our wedding plans (and date!) from an hour outside of Pittsburgh to over two hours outside of Pittsburgh and Dawn did not even bat an eye. She traveled to Cleveland for both our engagement shoot and our wedding and we are so thankful that she did! For our wedding, Dawn brought her second shooter, and she was an absolute gem. They say, "you're only as good as the company you keep" and Dawn keeps the best company. Dawn focuses on what is important to you and goes above and beyond- capturing what you don't even realize is important to you. We will cherish our photos forever and you just can't put a price on that. Come see us in Cleveland any time! <3”
-Randi D, Bride
"Dawn was absolutely AMAZING. I couldn't have asked for a more professional photographer to shoot my wedding. She arrived early (as she does for everything). Being a bride on her wedding day you can count on her to be on time and to put you at ease.
She was always willing to get down and dirty to get those beautiful shots. She adventured with me for our engagement photos to a natural waterfall, climbed up and down over rocks to get those amazing shots!
The day of the wedding she was willing to take photos of me on a horse (most photographers are scared to do so) but this girly was not! She honestly worked with us to give us everything we wanted and more!
Her delivery time on images blew me away! A little gold box arrived at my door step, in that small box held images I will cherish for the rest of my life.
I would absolutely recommend Dawn! She was a blessing to work with!"
-Ashley R, Bride
“Dawn is absolutely phenomenal - she is so enthusiastic and great at making the couple feel super comfortable. I wouldn't say that my husband and I are really all that photogenic, but she made us look amazing! We can't get over how great all of the photos look - from the engagement photo session to the wedding day photos, every single one was absolutely perfect. She was super easy to work with, very communicative, and clearly loves what she does. She really helped to make the day run smoothly and it was so nice to be able to see a sample of the photos the very next day! I would recommend Dawn to anyone looking for a photographer...for anything!”
-Hannah F, Bride
“Leaving reviews for someone like Dawn seems irrelevant when all you need to do is look at her work because it speaks for itself. Her talent and passion for what she does pours out of every picture she takes. The detail and planing she puts into every picture at every shoot, I have never seen before and I did a lot of research when it came to photographers. They are the ones who capture the memories of the most important day of your life, so you want those pictures to be perfect. Dawn ensures that, that happens with every photo. She did our engagement photos, a boudoir shoot with me (which I totally recommend to every bride even remotely thinking about it! It’s so fun and makes you feel absolutely beautiful in your own skin.) and our wedding photos. Looking back at all of them now, I know without a doubt that Dawn was 100% the right choice. We get so many compliments on them all and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you Dawn! You rock!!”
-Marissa D, Bride
“We LOVE Dawn!!! I don't know how she does it, but Dawn manages to capture the most stunning photos - and quickly!!! She is such a pro and so fun to work with. Dawn shot our Wedding, Rehearsal Dinner, and our amazing Engagement Shoot. My Husband and I are not great photo takers, but somehow Dawn made it so easy, fun, and natural!! We couldn't be happier with our photos. Dawn is never afraid to go the extra mile to get the shot!! She walked through a muddy horse stable for our engagement shoot and rode around in a golf cart with us at our ceremony (one of my fav memories of the day!) the result is unique, beautiful, photos and memories that will truly last a lifetime!!! She captured our wedding beautifully from detail shots to candids. I just can't say enough about how talented Dawn is. Book her!!” -Abby S, Bride
“From start to finish Dawn was an absolute dream to work with! When I first saw her work I told my husband that she HAD to be our photographer and then after meeting her I knew it would be a perfect match. She is organized, detailed oriented, and creative beyond words! She never told us an idea was off limits. We drug her out on the coldest day of the year (-10 degrees) and asked for our engagement pictures to be on the top of a mountain. It was freezing, but she did a phenomenal job of making the entire experience so much fun! And our pictures were breathtaking!! Dawn was a breath of fresh air on our wedding day. Her energy and spirit is uplifting and refreshing! She made everyone feel comfortable and most importantly ensure we all had a blast with her!! She made sure the chaos of a wedding day was organized and stuck to our timeline like clockwork. We also loved that she was present, but not invasive so our wedding day wasn’t spent with a camera in our face. We were given beautiful pictures that we will cherish for a lifetime!!” - Kelci R, Bride
"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!"
-Kelly T, Bride
"We were so lucky to work with Dawn for our wedding photos, and I can't recommend her enough! She was incredibly kind, flexible, and easy to work with. I always felt like we were in great hands. Dawn scoped out the wedding venue ahead of time to set up great shots, and all around she gave us the feeling that our wedding pictures were as important to her as they were to us. She and her assistant worked wonderfully together to cover everything throughout our wedding day and evening. We had preview pictures within days, and the full set shortly after. They are beautifully done! We and our families totally love them :) Dawn even sent recommendations for printing services local to where we live overseas. Working with Dawn was wonderful all around and the perfect choice for wedding photography!"
-Rebecca M, Bride
"Quite honestly, I think that Dawn’s work speaks for itself, but I am going to write a review anyway. Dawn is as kind as she is talented. She was the first photographer that we met with, and my husband and I both liked her so much that we didn’t feel the need to look further. We didn’t plan to do an engagement shoot, but we decided to and were glad that we did. It gave us a chance to get to know Dawn a bit before the wedding and we were able to use those photos for bridal shower and wedding decorations. Leading up to the wedding, Dawn was professional and organized with a detailed online questionnaire and the option for online payment. She was always fast to respond and answer questions. Did I mention that all of her photos are gorgeous? Seriously. She captured the details of our wedding flawlessly. She sent us a USB drive with our engagement and wedding photos as well as several prints in a beautiful wooden box. To sum up, Dawn is awesome, talented, helpful and professional. My husband and I could not be happier with our decision to hire her and we suggest you hire her too!"
-Alyssa V, Bride
“If I could give Dawn 100 stars I would. She is SO SO talented. I booked Dawn as soon as we got engaged ( a year in a half ago) because I knew we had to have her as our photographer. I loved her style and the soft/romantic look of her pictures. When we met with Dawn we KNEW she was the photographer for us. Not only does she make you feel comfortable, she has the best personality! She is very professional, but fun at the same time. She is very organized and fast at responding back to her clients, which was huge for us. Fast forward to June 22, 2019 Dawn was EVERYTHING I could've asked for in a photographer and so much more. Looking at our pictures (which she got back to us super fast) Dawn captured every single detail and I am forever grateful for that. We were reliving our wedding day looking through our pictures. She focuses on what is important to you as a couple and she sure delivers. I can promise you that you need Dawn to be your photographer. You will not be let down. Her work speaks for herself. I truly cannot thank her enough for our amazing, beautiful wedding pictures that we will cherish for the rest of our lives!” -Bri C, Bride
