  • Dawn is everything and anything you can wish for in a wedding photographer! She was very responsive and easy to share ideas with. She and her assistant photographer Ashely came on time for our wedding and were very professional thoughout the whole event. I was really nervous and a bit stressed on the wedding day, but as soon as Dawn arrived and started taking picture, I started to lighten up and become more excited than worried thanks to her comforting and energetic nature. We are 100% satisfied with the photos. She took lots of candid, in-the-moment shots that are truly beautiful, emotional, and worthy. We will definitely cherish these photos forever! Thank you, Dawn & Ashley!

  • Dawn was so amazing!! Dawn and her assistant were such a pleasure to work with. My original photographer cancelled 30 says before my wedding, so I was extremely frantic as I tried to find someone new. When I spoke with Dawn, she was so sweet and understanding and I just knew I had to have her shoot my wedding! She was highly recommended by a coworker as well. Dawn was so nice but she was also able to wrangle my family together for photos. My husband and I always feel very awkward while taking pictures, but she did an amazing job of making us laugh and feel comfortable. My husband doesn’t like to take pictures at all, but he didn’t complain once because being with Dawn was like being with a friend. It was just such a great experience and I am so happy I ended up working with Dawn!

  • Dawn the first day we sat down to discuss my wedding you were just as excited as I was. This instantly made me delighted with joy. You have so much passion in what you do and it shows immediately. You have an outstanding personality, helping those you capture feel so comfortable in the most uncomfortable situations. I remember the mistake we made not hiring you as our photographer for our initial engagement session, oh my were we wrong. At the last minute I reached out to Dawn to be the photographer on our second session because we weren't particularly satisfied with the original photos taken with another photographer. She accommodated us very quickly considering we were close to our deadline to sending out our save the dates. Our photos came back and they were fierce just as we wanted. We hired Dawn Photography to capture our traditional nigerian engagement and wedding day. She was the perfect choice for this most joyous time in our lives. The day of the wedding day she worked very sw... Read more

    Monifah! Thank you so very much for taking the time to write this review. I always say how lucky I am to have such good people as clients. Not only are the two of you a great couple, you threw an incredible party! After we met, my team and I were super excited to photograph all the fun traditions you had planned. From the incredible violinist during your ceremony, to the money dance and your bridal party and parent entrances!! Thank you for the incredible energy. I am so glad to have been the one to capture such an important life event. xoxoxoxo

  • Dawn is absolutely genius and amazing! From the engagement pictures to the wedding day she literally saved the day each time I worked with her. My engagement pictures were in October at a winery. I didn’t go see the winery beforehand and when we got there it was barren. It was not lush and green like I imagined. Dawn did not panic, but instead we got in the car and drove around until we found beautiful fields to take pictures in. It wound up being so much fun, and the pictures were absolutely stunning. The day of the wedding my venue decided to replace the carpet in the room we were getting married in and it took longer than expected. I was obviously freaking out because it was pouring rain and I only had that room to take pictures in. We had to do all our group photos with people jack hammering a carpet together while trying to coordinate 10 groomsmen & 8 Bridesmaid’s for photos. THANK GOD Dawn is a genius because she was able to shout and signal to all of us exactly what she ... Read more

  • Dawn did an amazing job capturing our wedding day! From the minute we met, we knew we were going to love working with her. Dawn and her team were very professional, on point with their schedule, and very easy and fun to work with. Our engagement photos and wedding photos were so beautiful, very impressive, and most certainly memorable. We absolutely loved our experience with Dawn Joseph Photography and we are so glad we chose them!

  • I am only taking time to write this review because I am looking at my wedding pictures with friends and family crying tars of happiness at how the most amazing my day was captured. Every moment of my special day was highlighted in the photographs. From getting ready, to my dance with my dad, even the details like my grandmothers necklace that was passed down through generations. The team was timely, accommodating, and just a pleasure to work with. I would have gladly paid them double for the work they did. I highly recommend them to everyone I know.

  • Photos are one of the most important parts of a wedding. Words cannot express how thrilled I am to have hired Dawn for my wedding in July. These photos are to die for. I can't even believe the way she was able to capture so much beauty in our wedding. Not to mention how amazing and easy she is to work with. The way she was able to capture everything without ever being invasive or in the way made it even more perfect. She had never worked my venue before but made sure to schedule a visit well beforehand so it was as if she had always been there! So happy I strayed away from large studio photographers and just found someone I truly thought was a exceptional photographer. I will cherish these photos forever!

  • Dawn was an amazing photographer and so wonderful and professional to work with!! She made our day so much fun and laid back. She also captured my wedding day exactly how we discussed. She captured so many wonderful moments during the day and also all of my details. My pictures came out absolutely beautiful!!! Leading up to the wedding Dawn was always available to discuss my questions and helped plan the locations of our wedding pictures. Ashlynn, Dawn's assistant that helped out on our wedding day was also wonderful and great to work with!! I highly recommend Dawn and I'm so happy we chose her as our photographer!!!

  • When you meet Dawn, you'll probably spend more time chatting randomly about you and your fiance than packages or money. Not that its not important but its as if shes trying to get to know you. Imagine that! We booked a package with an engagement session and it flew by so fast because she is such a great conversationalist. She listens and shares some pretty random stories. I say all that to say... Shes awesome. Yes her work is amazing but she made us feel supported, comfortable and is super unobtrusive. You won't regret booking her..

  • There are no words to describe how grateful I am for Dawn Joseph!!! My dream was to have a photographer who captured "Pinterest-worthy" photos, and good gracious did she!!! Dawn is one of the most talented photographers I have ever met. She is truly passionate about her job and passionate about capturing the absolute perfect moment. Dawn's attention to detail is exquisite and I am beyond happy and grateful for the time and work she put into making our day absolutely perfect. I would recommend Dawn to EVERYONE! Thank you Dawn!! My family will definitely be using you again in the future!

  • If you're looking for a professional, natural, ABSOLUTELY AMAZING photographer, Dawn Joseph is your girl! Choosing a photographer is not easy; however, as soon as I spoke with Dawn, I knew I was making the right decision. Her work is so natural and REAL. You can truly feel the emotions behind every image her and her team captures. My husband and I first met Dawn at our engagement session. We were extremely nervous and didn't want it to show in our photos. Dawn made us feel at ease and 100% comfortable. On our wedding day she truly felt like a member of my family. She fit right in and was a pleasure having her with us. I honestly can't even remember seeing any of the photographers throughout my day and she still managed to capture every single moment of our wedding day. I highly recommended Dawn Joseph Photography!!!

  • My husband and I knew the moment we met with Dawn that she would be the perfect photographer for our wedding. Her amazing talent showed just from looking through her albums and we couldn’t wait to work with her. On the day of the wedding Dawn made everyone feel so calm and started doing her thing, she is quick, organized and has a vision like no other. She captured every moment that happen that day and I could not be happier with our pictures. Anyone that sees our pictures ask who our photographer was and tells us we look like a magazine spread, how I can even ask for more!!!! Dawn was such a big part of our day, not only did my bridal party love her but so did my parents and everyone at the wedding. One comment that was made many of times was how desecrate she was during our ceremony. She is definitely not that photographer who is in the way and takes away from the bride and groom that’s for sure! We are so happy that Dawn was able to be such a huge part of our day; I will foreve... Read more

  • My husband and I knew we wanted Dawn to photograph our wedding the second we left our consultation, we didn’t even bother meeting with anyone else! She is so down-to-earth and we knew instantly that we’d feel comfortable trusting her to capture all our special moments. She kept us laughing throughout our engagement session, which happened to be on the coldest day of the year, so we definitely needed something to help us warm up! On our wedding day, Dawn and her assistant, Ashlyn, were nothing short of professionals. They were both so efficient and were able to quickly get all our portraits done outside, as it was a little chilly and starting to drizzle. To be honest, I was a little upset that the weather prevented us from being able to get any bright and sunny natural light photos; however, the cloudy skies actually made for some really beautiful shots and we couldn’t be happier with how they came out! We recently received all our pictures and we’re completely obsessed; we can... Read more
