Who We Are...
We are family. A family who wants you to have the best experience, the most fun and who wants to capture the big and small moments of your day so that in 50 years, you can still remember how your wedding felt through your photographs.
Marriages are worth celebrating from the moment you get engaged. We are excited to celebrate and be your hype girl throughout the entire process!
Our couples know they can count on us to be calm, positive, and reliable when they need it. Beyond that, we’ve been where you are! So we know first-hand the importance and lasting impact of wedding photography.
Dawn - Owner/Lead Photographer
I started this business 8 years ago in Florida, moving it to Charlotte, North Carolina 2 years ago when my husbands job brought us here. Its been an absolute dream to be a wedding photographer can capture the most important day of couples lives. The day they commit to their best friend. Weddings are so much more than the things (I probably shouldnt admit that being that Im a sucker for amazing decor and florals) but weddings are really about the two of you, your love for one another and the start of forever! The day you get married, is such a great day!
Beyond photography, I’m a wife to my amazing husband, mom and foster mom to our littles, and a Christian woman who loves to travel, check out fun breweries, and find new adventures with my family. I like to think that these two sides to my personality—both deeply nurturing and fun-seeking—get swept together into my approach to photography and your wedding day.
I am truly blessed to call this my job! I’ve reached success when I can give to you an enjoyable, effortless experience that leads to emotion-filled photos, that will become cherished heirlooms.
Melissa - Lead Photographer
I am a Breckenridge Colorado native, a Boone college kid, and now a North Carolina resident. I am equal parts wanderlust and homebody! You will either find me planning my next trip, or building our family businesses next house. I love guacamole, a good girls night, hikes and trying new micro brews around Charlotte.
Weddings are so individual - so intimate. We are all different, and what we want isn’t ever exactly the same! I believe that your wedding should be who you are as a couple. If you want a massive wedding at the Grand Bohemian Charlotte, or a small elopement with just you two and the dogs outside of Asheville, then I am there for you! I support you, guiding you through posing, having fun throughout your engagement session and wedding so youre never worried about the camera. I want you to look back on your wedding day with joy! I want you to be able to look through your album and be happy with how your day went because it was you!!
A Little Humble Brag Is Ok....
Dawn is so talented but also a complete sweetheart. Within the first five minutes of our first time meeting I felt like she was my best friend. She has such a gift in making you feel comfortable and beautiful.
Dawn is amazing!
Our photos are fantastic, and she was so easy to work with. Anything that I needed, she was right there willing and ready to help in whatever way she could.
My husband told me many times how much he disliked photos, but after our sessions...he said he actually enjoyed them. Everyone has told me how sweet and good my photographer was, and I definitely agree.
"The memories we now have captured forever thanks to Dawn make me tear up every time I look at them."
"...we laughed throughout the whole day!"
Having a wonderful photographer for your wedding day is so important and I didn’t realize how important until I was actually able to relive every moment through her photos!!
"The day was...full of laughs and GORGEOUS pictures!"
"She captured so many precious moments on our wedding day that we may have missed otherwise and I'm so grateful for that!"
