Hi, I’m Dawn Charles.

I’m a former wedding and couples photographer based in Bend, Oregon, who spent years fine-tuning my craft and struggling to figure this whole business thing out. But along the way, I realized I didn’t have to do it all on my own, and neither do you.

After over a decade of shooting full time, I closed my books and transitioned my business to provide educational resources for other photographers.

Today, I’m taking those years of trial and error and sharing everything I’ve learned to help you pursue your passion and create a successful, fulfilling business.

I'm of the mindset that we're all in this together, and there's nothing to gain by holding back. When we share what we've learned along the way, everyone wins.

When I’m not dreaming up new resources for you or in my studio shooting, I'm probably chasing around my 3 daughters, watching a true crime documentary with my husband, hosting a dinner party, outside enjoying the sunshine, or drinking prosecco and puzzling with my best friend.

Dawn's given me hours back in my business. Not all photographers should be teachers, but Dawn just gets it – and you can tell she loves doing it. She’s taught me everything I need to know about editing, and her presets and workflows have given me hours back in my business. She’s open, honest, and a literal ray of sunshine.
