Hi, I’m Dawn


I want to tell YOUR STORY

I absolutely believe that eloping is one of the most wonderful and unique ways to get married. There’s nothing I love more than helping couples create the authentic intimate wedding day of their dreams.

Conquer Amazing Adventures Together!

Elopements bring the focus of a wedding back to you two having the best day! My husband, Dan is also involved in every elopement I help plan and photograph. He’s my second shooter, off-road Jeep driver, officiant and an all around amazing adventurer!

We want to help you design the best day either for the two of you or with your close family and friends, from start to finish.

"I can’t say enough amazing things about Dawn (and Dan)! She absolutely crushed it with our wedding photos and made our entire day one to remember. She was always available to chat in the months leading up to our wedding and was a constant calming energy for me. She made the day so comfortable and fun. We had the best time laughing with her and Dan. And the PHOTOS!!! INCREDIBLE is an understatement. They are everything we hoped for and more and I’m so very thankful to have them as they captured the love and beauty of the day perfectly. Can’t recommend her enough! Thank you Dawn for making our wedding day the most magical day we could imagine!"

"Dawn and her husband Dan made our elopement the most amazing experience!!! Dawn made planning so simple, she helped us pick the perfect locations, and she made sure we got the right permits on time. They both helped the ceremony go smoothly, took so many incredible pictures, and felt like part of the family in the wedding day. Everyone who has seen our wedding pictures has said how perfect they turned out and our families have been talking about how great Dawn and Dan were. We can’t say enough great things about them- they are simply the best!"

"Dawn left us speechless and brought happy tears to our eyes. We were so nervous leading up to our elopement, but Dawn was able to walk us through the process and gave us tons of ideas for our big day. We ultimately decided on Ouray, Colorado, and this was the best location and experience! Dawn and her husband, Dan, are full of great ideas and made the wedding day, a day we will cherish forever. They helped us plan out all the important details of the day and made everything seem so easy and fun! Dan also married us on our wedding day and it was a beautiful ceremony. We spent a lot of time with Dawn and Dan which was the best because they are so personable and truly care about what they do!! I wish we could relive the day--it was so perfect!!"

"We wanted to elope to a National Park, and Dawn was so helpful in talking through options given the time of year we were getting married. Even though we were connecting by email and phone, it was such a personal experience and Dawn was there every step of the way to both help us plan our elopement and to discuss what the process would be like before during and after. When the time came, we decide to elope to Yosemite National Park and she and her husband got there a few days before us and scouted out good areas for the wedding ceremony as well as potential areas to take pictures throughout the park after. They spent so much time with us on the wedding day and we were really impressed with how much preparation and care they put into all aspects of the day. Neither my wife nor I are much for taking pictures or being the center of attention, but they made it so much fun and we were blown away when we got the previews of our pictures. Dawn captures both intimate moments and pictures in action and has great creative ideas to bring those moments to life. This was easily the best decision we made when it came to planning this trip and our special day and such a great investment to make our wedding day everything we hoped and prayed for. We can't thank Dawn and Dan enough for their kindness and attention to detail. We will never forget this experience!"

"Dawn and her husband (2nd shooter) are incredible! Not only are they a fantastic energy but they are extremely talented! They shot our wedding day in august and captured every true and natural emotion in the most beautiful & timeless photos! We can not stop looking at them! A few key things we loved about them was their ability to be flexible and their attention to detail!!"

"I truly am so thankful for the work and support that embodies everything that Dawn McClannan does. She will do everything in her power to make you feel comfortable, supported, encouraged and taken care of. I truly was beyond thrilled with the way the photos turned out. They told a story that we will remember and cherish forever. I cannot get enough of the pictures she has taken for us and I truly wouldn't have wanted anyone else to photograph for us!"
