MY NAME IS DAWN CHARLES AND I’M A WEDDING AND ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER BASED OUT OF CENTRAL OREGON. I SPECIALIZE IN ADVENTUROUS WEDDINGS AND COUPLES’ SESSIONS AND LOVE THAT MY JOB TAKES ME TO EXPLORE AMAZING CORNERS OF THE EARTH!
I began studying photography over a decade ago and got my Bachelor’s in Photography at California State University Long Beach. In addition to my love for photography is my love for people. I come from a family of teachers and always knew that would be a part of my career someday. I’m a believer that we’re all in this together, and secrets don’t help anyone grow.
I’ve always been an open book and eager to share what I’ve learned and created with others. My hope is that these tools will help you grow in your journey, no matter which stage you’re at. I know what it’s like to spend hours, weeks, or months, frustrated and stuck. I know I can’t solve all your problems, but I hope to help you along the way and give you a little help, education, and inspiration!
