Dawn was everything we could have wanted and more for our wedding and engagement photos. Her attitude made it so easy to work with her, especially when she would make us laugh/smile when the timing was right for our photos. She was open to all ideas we had for our photos, but had endless ideas, herself, to get the most out of our engagement and bridal party group photos. The photos we have received from our wedding are way above our high expectations of quality. Her and her associate, Ambrose, did a wonderful job capturing all of the moments of our wedding. We would recommend Dawn to anyone looking for a photographer for an event.

Dawn is the best. I honestly can't recommend her enough. Most importantly, her photos are incredible. My husband pointed out that she does a great job of capturing the emotions of you & your friends/family, and that was 100% true in our photos. The pictures turned out even better than I was expecting, and she did a great job capturing fun little moments during the day (like when my husband couldn't tie his bowtie...)

She is extremely professional - quick email responses, simple and fair contract, asks all the right questions to make sure she knows what you want from her on your wedding day.

She's also really fun, relaxed and flexible, so you feel very comfortable being photographed by her for the day. We wanted someone who who document everything in a very natural way, and I felt like she hit the right balance of staging shots when she needed to (formals, cake cutting, etc.) and then taking a step back and just letting us hang out during the rest of the day.

I cannot speak highly enough of Dawn and her team. From the first meeting to receiving the photos following our wedding, she has been a complete pleasure to work with. Not only is her photography absolutely stunning, she is so friendly and professional and truly works with you to make sure your day is captured perfectly.

I could not have asked for a better photographer and I am so thrilled with the outcome of our engagement and wedding photos. I would highly recommend Dawn to anyone looking for a wedding photographer - it'll be best decision you make for your big day.

Dawn was great to work with, from our first Skype convo to all the emails that we traded back and forth. She's so pleasant and she handled all of my many requests with patience and professionalism. Dawn was also such a pleasure to have around on our wedding day and produced extremely beautiful photos that we will treasure for years to come. She's so talented and just has an eye for fantastic shots. We hired her because her work was artistic and creative, and really captured people's emotions. And she didn't disappoint on our big day, we're so happy we went with Dawn for our wedding. The pictures are simply stunning and capture the emotion of the day. Great value, totally worth the investment.

I can't even begin to explain how wonderful it was working with Dawn for our wedding. From our very first conversation, I knew there was no one else I would ever want to photograph our big day. When our sunny engagement session turned into a downpour, Dawn offered to do another day of shooting to make sure we got the perfect pictures. Dawn is extremely responsive and always willing to answer any questions or review any important details. I can't thank her enough for capturing every important moment of our day.

I took forever deciding on a photographer and here are the reasons we went with Dawn.

Stunning work: Her wedding stories took my breath away and provided what I needed to know about her thought process when she works. This is a no brainer - she does quality work and the only issue with that is not being able to make hard image choices for our designer album and wall art! Before I saw her work, I thought I wanted images with the vintage style effects - her style is hard to describe. Its soft and classic... I just feel beautiful and some of the images make me feel like Mike and I were all alone in the room..

Highly Responsive: Its one thing for vendors to respond quickly before you book with them. Dawn was consistent throughout the entire process and was always available to answer every little question we (or my Mom) had. I never felt like a number.

Not just about the sale: Dawn never sold useless or overpriced services or products to us. We went for the largest package she offered because we needed the extra hours but instead of leaving it at that, she gently talked us through why we made that selection. She recommended what we could leave out and was happy to modify our package to fit our unique needs. She truly CONSULTED with us vs. selling.

Unobtrusive: In our consultation she said, "your wedding in not a photo or video production. I dont want to be part of the story but I want to tell it.." I took this for granted till I went to a few weddings and the photographer was jumping all over the place. Dawn took charge when necessary and was in the background most of the time.

Great person: This may not matter to many folks but she's just a great girl. She got everyone to relax, has a wonderful sense of humor and just really fit in with my family. Everyone still talks about her and she'll be getting a ton of business from my engaged cousins.

Thanks Dawn!

I feel so fortunate to have found Dawn to be our wedding (and engagement) photographer. From the first meeting to getting our finished photos she was an absolute joy to work with and was such a huge all around help on our wedding day. We had a very d-i-y wedding, so needless to say, the day of was pretty hectic and she was always in the right places at the right times and got incredible shots that I didn't even know would have been possible! I wanted the feel of our wedding to be magical and ethereal and her photographs conveyed that perfectly. I couldn't recommend Dawn any more!

Choosing a wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions that you will make surrounding your wedding. You want to find someone who can capture the intimate moments of your wedding without having it be stagey, unnatural or forced. You hope that your wedding photographer has an eye for detail and you want your photos to be unique. You want your photographer to be present, but unobtrusive. You want to feel comfortable with your photographer so that you can relax and be yourself. Dawn Joseph completely nailed it in all of those ways aforementioned. In the time leading up to the wedding, Dawn was extremely attentive and she really listened to the hopes that we had for our wedding photos. Her fun personality made us feel relaxed and comfortable from the moment that we met with her for our consultation. On the day of our wedding, Dawn and her team were wonderful. We took “first look” pictures and did family photos prior to the ceremony so that we would be able to enjoy our cocktail hour. Our bridal party and family commented on how awesome Dawn’s team was. Our family will forever be grateful to Dawn and her team for giving us such a beautiful collection of happy moments that we will cherish for years to come!

My husband and I LOVE Dawn! Since the moment we first contacted her, Dawn has been great. Not only is she amazingly talented, but she has a fantastic personality.

It took some convincing, but my husband agreed to do engagement photos. We had a great time with Dawn, and she even tried to incorporate our cats into some of our pictures at home. Dawn did a wonderful job on our photos, and we were really glad that we took the time to get comfortable in front of the camera prior to our wedding. The photos came out great, and we were able to display them at my bridal shower. The guests at my shower raved about Dawn's work.

On the day of our wedding, Dawn arrived ready to go. She captured every moment and emotion; she’s truly is an artist! Despite the torrential rain on our wedding day, Dawn captured so many amazing photos. Our family and friends loved her as well! We loved looking at our slideshow and our photos, and can’t wait to order our album.

When choosing our photography package for our wedding, Dawn didn’t try to sell us on any added “upgrades.” Her talent truly sells itself. In addition to her awesome photography and business skills, Dawn also was a great source for finding other vendors. I wouldn’t have found our florist or my hair stylist without her!

Dawn and I clicked from the moment we met, she is an absolute joy to work with! I was so excited to have her do our engagement and wedding day photos! Dawn was amazing throughout our entire engagement - she assisted us in our day-of timelines and recommended stunning locations for our first look photos!... We were on our honeymoon when we received our photo montage sneak peak and I watched it more times than I care to admit ;-) All of our photos were absolutely beautiful... Dawn was somehow able to be everywhere at once and capture every single moment of the day. I'm so thrilled to have these photos to look at for years to come and reminisce about how amazing our wedding day was.
