• Welcome friends, to my blog! My name is Misty Dawn and while I invite you to explore my work and ramblings here, I hope you'll reach out and offer me the chance to get to know YOU as well, by leaving a comment or shooting me an email.

When I arrived to the Kitty Knight House for Laura and Ben’s big day, I was blown away by Laura’s exquisite bridal details.  Mainly – THOSE. SHOES.  Ugh, those shoes!  Be still my heart.  Not to mention how much I love long veils.  I always cross my fingers for just a bit of wind with a long veil.  That’s when the magic happens.

Laura & Ben’s big day was not my first Kitty Knight House wedding.  There is an advantage to the familiarity of working at a venue you’ve worked at before, but the chance to find new and creative ways to photograph in the same space is what is more exciting to me.

Liz and Matt were treated to an absolutely gorgeous day for their University and Whist Club Wedding. Keeping with tradition, Matt didn’t want to see Liz before the wedding, but Liz wished for them to say a prayer together before the ceremony.  We were able to find a creative way for them to have a moment together before the ceremony without actually seeing each other.  It was incredibly sweet.  Without further ado…UniversityWhistWedding_001UniversityWhistWedding_002UniversityWhistWedding_003UniversityWhistWedding_004UniversityWhistWedding_005UniversityWhistWedding_006UniversityWhistWedding_007UniversityWhistWedding_008UniversityWhistWedding_009UniversityWhistWedding_010UniversityWhistWedding_011UniversityWhistWedding_012UniversityWhistWedding_013UniversityWhistWedding_014UniversityWhistWedding_015UniversityWhistWedding_016UniversityWhistWedding_017UniversityWhistWedding_018UniversityWhistWedding_019UniversityWhistWedding_020UniversityWhistWedding_021UniversityWhistWedding_022UniversityWhistWedding_023UniversityWhistWedding_024UniversityWhistWedding_025UniversityWhistWedding_026UniversityWhistWedding_027UniversityWhistWedding_028UniversityWhistWedding_029UniversityWhistWedding_030UniversityWhistWedding_031UniversityWhistWedding_032UniversityWhistWedding_033UniversityWhistWedding_034UniversityWhistWedding_035UniversityWhistWedding_036UniversityWhistWedding_037

 

 

I’ve witnessed my friends’ and clients’ little ones grow from cooing little babes into curious and playful, walking, talking wonders before my very eyes.  I’ve always recognized how crazy it is that children grow so fast, but it’s truly ASTONISHING to me now as a parent. My little one is going to be ONE YEAR OLD in just a couple weeks!  I. Can’t. Even.  I swear she was just born a few months ago.  And yet…it feels like she’s been here forever.  Life before her is blurred in my memory.

As many of you know, I scaled back the amount of weddings and sessions I’ve accepted this past year so I could be present for my daughter.  I’ve wholeheartedly enjoyed the down time this past year – after all, they’re only little once, right?  With that said, I want to tell you that I am still here.  I am still booking weddings.  Still photographing families and beautiful new babes.  Still designing albums for past brides and grooms.  I know Misty Dawn Photography has been quiet on the blog and on social media, but I assure you, I am still here.  MDP_7570-Edit

Ooooooh…..that’s exciting news, isn’t it?  You bet.  So email me today if you’re searching for Delaware Professional Photographers.

A blue dress + a casino theme + a group of mature older ladies crashing the party = not your typical wedding event!  This Dover Downs wedding was only 5 weeks after I was due to give birth to my first baby, but I booked the wedding before I was even pregnant.  Once we knew the pregnancy was viable, I contacted the couple to offer them their money back or the option of a replacement photographer at my cost, should one be needed.  They trusted me with their wedding day so they stayed, accepting the risk of a replacement photographer.  As it turned out, I gave birth to my daughter via C-section and the recovery meant that I couldn’t photograph the wedding, though I did show up and take some photos for a few hours (with the lightest combination of gear possible!).  I entrusted my awesome colleagues Leah and Erin to document the day in my stead, and they did a wonderful job!

  • Corey Nelson - Gorgeous work as always!!!

You know the saying.  First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage… I am so pleased to announce the birth of our first born, a beautiful baby girl!  We are just smitten with this amazing little being.  She has shown us a level of love and joy that we didn’t know existed.

Here she is!  {photo by Dougherty Photo Designs}

Since this little lady’s arrival, I’ve taken some time away from work to be the best mommy I can be for her.  Have no fear though, my current clients are still being taken care of and I’m still booking for 2015 and beyond.  I’m accepting a select number of portrait sessions for the remainder of this year as well.  So if you’re interested in having me photograph your family or your wedding, hit me up!  That said – I appreciate your patience as my emails might be a tad slower than usual.

Look for some new work coming to the blog soon!
