I am Dawn Roscoe! And I am so happy you found my website.

My fascination with photography began at a very early age with an old Polaroid my grandfather bought me. And a camera has been by my side ever since.  Photography was always part of my life, but never my life’s work. After a long career in business and advertising, I decided to change my life course-drastically. I quit my advertising job and embarked on an art degree at the Art Institute of Chicago. After graduation, I worked at several commercial food and catalog studios around the city, but yearned to photograph outdoors and experience people more. A close friend asked me to second shoot for a wedding he was photographing, and after that, I was hooked! Changing light, beautiful moments and telling stories all became part of my work, and it was something I never experienced before. Now, I feel pretty lucky documenting one of the most important days in your lifetime and becoming your storyteller.

My Goal

Honesty, authenticity and spontaneity are elements that I strive for in narrating weddings, events and stories. My love for art is also a major driving force in my personal photography style. During each and every shoot, I love to have fun and create images that showcase personality, style, and quintessential moments. With my photography influences and background, my goal is provide all of my clients with modern images, with some artistic, spontaneous fun!

Experience and Mindset

I have photographed over 330 weddings, and I am now into my 16th season under my own company. Couple relationships are incredibly important to me! When you book me, we stay in touch throughout your entire wedding planning process. We work together on scheduling, locations, and important family pictures so your day is stress-free and easy. I also send you planning emails and offer monthly newsletters to get us ready for your big day. I work with you closely to so we can create some amazing memories that communicate the essence of who you are.
