Gallery of Destiny Dawn Photography
We can't say enough about Destiny! There is no one else we would trust to document our most important moments. After the incredible pictures she took of our wedding, there was no doubt in our mind that we needed her to document our daughter's first photos. Destiny is so kind, and makes you feel so comfortable while she's taking pictures; she truly made us feel at ease during the sessions. We are so blown away by how perfect the pictures turned out. I would completely recommend Destiny to anyone looking for a photographer!
Destiny has done the photography for my wedding, family photos after my first son was born, and is all lined up to do our next set of family photos for our second son. Our house is unofficially the Destiny Dawn Photography gallery. Not only does she take beautiful photos, but she is so easy to work with. As someone that does not love having my picture taken, it was wonderful to work with Destiny because she puts you at ease, and gives fantastic direction along the way. I always recommend her to friends getting married or needing family photos. Her work is dreamy and romantic, without having that filtered look you see elsewhere. She makes everyone feel and look beautiful!
Destiny (and her husband Jamie) are, firstly, just wonderful people. They care about their wedding couples and really connect with you before, during, and after your shoots for your engagement and wedding. Secondly, they are immensely talented and have a knack for capturing perfect candid and stylized photos. She is highly organized and capable of handling all the logistical groupings for portraits but still make everyone feel super comfortable and natural. It was an absolute joy having our photos taken and those moments were some of our favourite of the day. Destiny will make you and your guests look their best while still capturing the perfect and small but magical moments. I can't recommend Destiny enough. <3
Destiny was a pleasure to work with and was unbelievable on our wedding day. She was prompt and very efficient with all the group family photos. She made myself, my husband and our two kids feel so comfortable with all the pictures. She was great with kids and she got them to look and feel natural, nothing was forced. She made the photos such a fun part of our day and one of my favorite times as a family was taking pictures and laughing together. She checked in with me and made sure she had captured everything and anything that I wanted with no complaints. I would high recommend Destiny for any of your events! She has a great eye and is passionate about what she does and it shows in her work.

Destiny quite simply made our wedding photo dreams come true. Because I work for a non-profit, and due to an expensive sponsorship immigration process for my husband, our budget was limited. But Destiny worked within our budget, despite the fact that her work is worth far more than we paid. From the beginning, she was more than a photographer. She was a sounding board for my ideas and frustrations with the wedding planning process. She was an encourager and a friend. She worked around our schedule, and made time for us despite her busy role as a mom and business owner. She came over to my house to talk wedding even with a broken leg and crutches! During our summer engagement session she made my husband, who hasn't typically loved having his photo taken, feel comfortable. We had so much fun, it was such a great memory. On the day of the wedding, Destiny was right on time- in fact she got to the venue long before I did! She and her assistant were professional and efficient. They blended into the background when needed, corralled my family into all the right shots, and even gave me a granola bar before the ceremony when I realized I hadn't had lunch! We were so anxious to get our photos back, and it was hard to wait the few months (average time for a photographer, especially one as busy as Destiny), but in the end it was so worth it. Our photos are more beautiful than we even dreamed of. Our friends have told us that they have never seen wedding photos as beautiful as these, and we have to agree! She captured little moments and memories so perfectly. I seriously cannot say enough good things about how wonderful Destiny was, and how glad I am that we chose her to be our photographer. Thank you Destiny for going so far above and beyond, and creating keepsakes that we, our family, and hopefully our children will treasure forever.
Not only are Destiny's photos absolutely stunning; but I had the pleasure of meeting her during my clients wedding. She's such a sweet person and the bride and groom absolutely loved her. In my experience, it's always an amazing and unique thing to find a photographer who can make the subject of their photos feel at ease and completely comfortable in front of the lens. With this and her amazing eye for the perfect shot, I would recommend Destiny for your upcoming wedding!
