FALL IN LOVE with the WAY YOU FEEL

Romantic imagery for

ABOUT DAWN

Artist, photographer, hopeless romantic

When you don’t rush, when you breathe deep, connection happens. There is always beauty to be found, even in the ordinary.

Dawn Thomson makes much of the beautiful and honest with beautiful, honest images that are as unique and intimate as her clients' love stories. Drawing on over 10 years of experience in editorial, portrait, fashion, and fine art photography, she approaches intimate weddings and elopements with stylised composition and a dramatic use of light, creating breathtaking imagery that is stylish, raw, and naturally romantic. Inspired by love stories that throw convention to the wind, Dawn focuses on elements that really matter, capturing emotion that plays beneath the surface and noticing unguarded moments that tell stories more divine than any scripted event.


There’s a wildness to Dawn's work,
a poetry that’s beautifully raw
yet enchanting at the same time
