Let's Get Married (Mini Style)

Small weddings are still weddings, full of heartfelt moments, the people you love, and your love for each other. While just as beautiful as a BIG wedding, they require different coverage, work, and approach, so I have these special collections for couples opting to have a mini-wedding, with just their nearest and dearest, under 50 guests, who might need less than 6 hours. As someone who had a small wedding, I can give you my valuable perspective, help you navigate the logistics of the day, and make sure you have photos of memories to cherish for a lifetime. With less guests, photos become a bigger priority, helping you share your love story with friends and family for years to come.

Real couples, Real Days

real couples on their wedding day, ranging from 5 guests to 75, all small, magical, and a beautiful display of their love and life together

Albums- 8x8, 10x10 and 12x12 starting at $900, $1150, and $1400

Second shooter is an additional $300
Extra hours are a discounted rate of $250/hour

A gorgeous album, custom designed by the photographer with 20 pages and your choice of cover material and color, delivered in a sleek box. Make those photos tangible. Your family isn't going to hunt down your old facebook or insta to look over the three wedding photos you liked to post on your anniversary every year. They're going to pull out this album, in awe over how in love you looked, how awesome your day seemed, pouring over all the family portraits, and gushing over this beautiful moment in your love story that happened 10, 25, 50 years ago. 8x8 is perfect for popping on a shelf and pulling out when you feel nostalgic, gifting to mom or grandma, or if you just prefer something sweet and simple. 10x10 is my most popular album size, it's big enough for your photos to really shine, but not GIANT. It's great for displaying, pulling out for loved ones who missed out on your big day, or for just beautifully showcasing those showstopper photos you LOVED in your gallery. 12 x 12 is all about GO BIG OR GO HOME. This baby is a coffee table book that is so big it could turn into a coffee table, like that one in Seinfeld. But really, it's a coffee table book, it's made to bee seen, enjoyed, and looked at frequently. Love a tangible reminder of the amazing day you had? This is your book. Pop this on your table for everyone to flip through when they visit and wow people with it on the regular, it opens up to TWO FEET WIDE. Those favorite photos from your wedding day? They look AMAZING in this big freakin' book.

Albums

Hourly coverage for these packages maxes out at 6 hours, but you can add as many hours as possible UP to that six hour limit for a discounted hourly rate. I also offer a second shooter as an add on to the Dahlia package so you can get that second viewpoint of your love story! I want to make sure your day is captured perfectly, and offer these options so you can customize your coverage and have ALL of your memories captured!

Kind Words From:

Olivia and Alex

Dawn is simply the BEST! Both in talent and personality. She could not be more enjoyable to work with and her photos are just amazing. My husband and I were uncomfortable (to say the least) having our photos taken prior to our engagement session. After spending just a few minutes with Dawn at our engagement shoot our discomfort dissolved and we found ourselves having fun!! Fast-forward to our wedding day. We were in the middle of a pandemic. I had my three dogs there. It poured. Needless to say, we didn’t make it easy on her. Her calm, fun-loving personality helped us to enjoy our day despite all craziness and our pictures turned out unbelievable. I never thought I could like pictures of myself this much! Anyone would be lucky to work with Dawn and the would recommend her a thousand times over!

questions?

I am just as excited for your wedding as you are. Genuinely. This is my passion, my only interest, I am all weddings all the time. I want to be a great resource. Take ten years of photography experience, plus way too much caffeine, I’m a total wedding photography dynamo. I will do anything in my power to make sure you have magazine worthy, one of a kind, break the internet photos. Because you deserve something magical and unique to who you are as a couple.

Why you? What sets you apart?

I am all about respecting your privacy. While I might be sad I can’t break the internet with your magical photos, I want you to be happy and safe and comfortable. I’ve been shooting weddings for ten years, I have buttloads of weddings I can share and not including your images won’t break my business, I am more than happy to keep your images off my website/social media if you prefer. 

We’re super private. What if we don’t want you sharing our images.

I am all about a rain plan. I watch the weather more than I check my email (which is A LOT), so I take that into consideration when location scouting and between umbrellas and back up plans, I’ve got it covered

So we are getting married in Pittsburgh, you know the weather issues. What if it rains?

I am all about the art, but while I’d love for my day to be nothing but fun, I do take those family shots that the more conservative types love. I will always try to talk my clients into altar shots because even though they’re the most “blah” part of the day, they’ll make Grandma super happy.

We’re into your style but someone more traditional in our family is worried about photos. How do we make them see what we do?

This is why I always suggest an engagement session. In addition to getting some cute photos of the two of you, it’s a time when I get to see how you do in front of the camera and try to see what works and what doesn’t with posing. It’s less pressure than the actual wedding day and it’s a great way for us to get to know each other, being comfortable with me is a big part of being comfortable in front of the camera.

We’re a little awkward in front of the camera, how can we get more comfortable before the big day?
