Destiny Dawn Photography
Megan Radford de Barrientos
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.
Destiny was the photographer for our wedding/engagement shoot and we couldn’t ask for a better photographer to be apart of our love story. We have memories to last for a lifetime and that’s because of Destiny. She is so insanely talented capturing the most timeless moments imaginable. She also blended well in the crowd and background. This is a real credit toward her talent that we got so many wonderful candid moments! Not to mention how truly talented Destiny is. But, Destiny is also one of the most kindest and gentlest souls I have met. Our family and friends are still raven about how professional she was during our big day. She made everyone feel so comfortable. She also helped and assisted with our timelines to ensure our day was absolutely perfect. She went above and beyond in terms of customer services and met all of her contractual agreements, timelines, and professional expectations. She was true to her word and delivered all of her gorgeous images on time!! Destiny is truly one of a kind and I would hire her in a heart beat! Thank you Destiny for sharing your gift to the world - I am still in awe at all the gorgeous images you captured. You truly have a gift and I am so blessed to have you apart of our big day!!!

Destiny Dawn cancelled 3 weeks before wedding and wanted to keep the deposit. She did not provide engagement session, and did not answer calls or emails for over a month, she said she was at a cottage and busy with her boyfriend's construction business, and her kids. Hire an accredited professional.
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!
