I would like to start off by saying I love Dawn. The photos I received are absolutely beautiful and my prints, book, and canvas wrap are all of high quality. Her assistant even went and bought my maid of honor dinner when my caterer screwed up which I truly appreciate to this day. My only disappointment is that I did not receive all my wedding photos. The contract I signed was for "all usable prints (approx. 400-500 prints)" so I assumed that meant I wouldn't receive photos that were out of focus or distorted in some way and on average that's 500 photos. When I saw my proofs there were only a little over 500 pictures, I was surprised because Dawn was there for about 12 hours. When I asked Dawn about this she said I doesn't give out photos that don't meet her standard but what she thinks is a bad picture might not be to me. I paid a lot of money and feel I should have gotten all my photos or at the very least given a proof sheet of all the photos to pick the 500 photos out from. I really wish I had been more clear in this area before I signed my contract. I only plan on getting married once so I probably would have gone with a different photographer who would have given me all the photos they took.

I am very sorry that you feel that you somehow feel that you didn't receive "all" of your photos Jackie. I want to ensure that my clients receive the HIGHEST QUALITY images in their final gallery. Images that are out of focus, unflattering, or wouldn't portray your day in the best light possible are deleted immediately. It is of the utmost importance to me to provide you only the best of the best. That is why I go thru all of the images prior to delivery. It is imperative to me that quality is what I provide.

Dawn V. Gilmore is the best photographer of The Treasure Coast ! She has done my engagement photo session, regular glamour sessions, and my engagement party. The only reason she could not do my wedding photography is due to me going to Sandals in Jamaica for my wedding and they do not allow outside photographers (which they should because her photos would have been 100 times better !!! ).
I can honestly say she is my photographer for anything and everything for life !! Her work is extraordinary and like none other that I've seen. And the best part is that she works with Natural Light of which very few photographers do. Dawn V. Gilmore Photography is the best !

Dawn was a pleasure to work with. She configured a package that covered all I asked for. She was not only professional, but personable. She was on scene, but behind the scenes for the whole day. I have loved the proofs she provided, and cannot wait to see my final coffee table book. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Dawn was truly an angel sent to me on my wedding day! When my photographer cancelled the night before my wedding I sent her a message on facebook and she returned my call first thing the next morning. Not only was she available to photograph my wedding that night, but she put me at ease the moment I spoke with her. Our photos are everything I hoped for and more. She captured not only us on our special day but also our guests enjoying themselves. The photos are phenomenal....I can't stop looking at them!!!

Dawn's work was phenomenal! We hired Dawn for our destination wedding to do some basic wedding shots and she went above and beyond anything we were expecting, under promising and over delivering! Of course I was nervous not to have meet her prior to the wedding day. She communicated through out the process and helped put me at ease. Dawn has an incredible way with people and somehow managed to get everyone to cooperate. We had so many wonderful pictures that it was nearly impossible to choose which ones to have printed for us and family. If you’re looking for a photographer who understands just how important your “Special Day” truly is, and someone who’s work will speak for itself, I highly recommend Dawn V. Gilmore Photography. Thank you, Dawnl Samantha

Dawn was a pleasure to work with! As a second time bride, it was my goal to have relaxed, informal pictures to go along with my relaxed, informal wedding. I was most impressed by Dawn's request that we meet in person so that she could get a better understanding for what I expecting in a photographer. In fact, it seemed as though she was more excited about my wedding than I was! She photographed both my rehearsal dinner and wedding and the pictures were fabulous. We could not have been more pleased with Dawn. She captured our wedding exactly how we envisioned it and even more.
