About Dawn Charles
I’M INSPIRED BY THE IN-BETWEEN MOMENTS.
Your mom holding back tears while you’re dancing with your dad. The best man sneaking a shot of tequila before walking down the aisle. The flower girl swiping icing off the cake. Your new spouse grabbing your hand under the table when no one’s watching.
The way it felt to be there, together.
I lead a small team of skilled and caring photographers, and we’re currently accepting couple sessions and weddings of 100 guests or fewer. Sound like your perfect match? Contact me so we can start planning something amazing!
Hey, I’m Dawn, an Oregon-based wedding photographer —
I’M A CALIFORNIA GIRL AT HEART, WIFE TO THE CUTEST POLICE OFFICER IN TOWN, AND MOM TO MY TWO FAVORITE LITTLE GIRLS IN THE WORLD.
At home in Bend, Oregon, you can usually find me playing with my kids or defending myself in Nerf gun fights against my husband. But I also love to travel, and I’ll hop on a plane in a heartbeat to photograph you.
I want to build a genuine relationship with each person in front of my camera and tell your story in the truest way possible. Even after a decade as a photographer, I’ll still cry during your father-daughter dance and feel like we’re best friends by the end of the day.
Ultimately, my faith is the purpose behind everything I do. I seek to serve others with the gifts God has given me and love everyone with open arms, as Jesus did.
I believe every love story is beautiful and worthy of celebration. And I’d be honored to help you document yours.
So, if you’re about getting a little dirty, chasing after what’s real, and throwing out tradition for something that’s uniquely you, let’s get together and make some magic happen.
