What Clients are Saying!

“Dawn Temple is quite possibly the Annie Lebowitz of wedding photographers. I was looking for a photographer for our wedding that had a very specific artistic flare. I scoured the landscape for someone who could capture the essence of our off-beat Cape Cod wedding. When a well known Cape Cod photographer referred her to me and I looked at her portfolio it was a heart-stopping, resounding “Yes, we have found what we have been searching for!” moment. That was just the beginning of a phenomenal relationship. She helped us realize our vision for our wedding. She captured not only the picturesque setting of our wedding but also was able to document the special nuances of our family. My favorite photos are the ones that have a tear or a smirk or some other unique feature that you would never find in any other set of wedding pictures. The photos of my husband and I standing in front of a fog laden bay in our first embrace as husband and wife are breathtaking. All the other family groupings couldn’t be more full of joy, emotion and candor. I am absolutely sure that we will see her work on a much larger scale someday and that her art will reach a vast audience. Dawn’s aesthetic and point of view is intrepid. We also just had a mini-session at the Christmas tree farm done and are so looking forward to seeing what she has created for us. Her professionalism is amazing. We feel like she is part of our family. If you want to have some family memories documented with utmost care Dawn Temple Photography is the perfect choice.”

Dawn was phenomenal! We planned this wedding (in RI) from NC and she made it a breeze. She heard everything I wanted and went above and beyond to make it happen. Her demeanor the day of was both calming and reassuring. She was relaxed enough that I was relaxed but she got everything done! And quickly too, we even caught some of cocktail hour. She was creative, did her homework before hand and her communication with me (both in the planning stages and during the party) was beyond amazing. I cannot say enough how great it was working with her and how much I love the proofs I have seen so far! I would hire her again and again without question. Anyone considering hiring her can rest easy… she will take care of your event (and you) perfectly!!! SHE IS AMAZING!

Dawn Temple is truly amazing! We have done three life event photo shoots with her! First our engagement shoot, which was done in Newport,RI in the middle of winter during the month of February. I have never been so cold in my life, but Dawn was daring and braved the New England snow to capture our amazing engagement photos. We took numerous photos on the cliffs with the ice cold ocean crashing all around us. She even brought us hot chocolate and hand warmers to keep warm! What an experience! Next, she blew us away with our wedding photos. Not only did she capture our entire day (and it was a whole day) she continued to take pictures during our sunset boat cruise around Newport. Once again she is not afraid to jump in and try something new! She is up for anything! We have a canvas photo hanging in our house and other photos scattered around. I loved ALL the pictures so much, I ordered two Wedding Albums from her! I couldn’t leave any photos out! Lastly, Dawn photographed our first pregnancy. We had our maternity pictures taken this summer right in the same area as our engagement photos. We even showed up a little late and had to change our plan slightly and Dawn just went with it! When we went to visit our wedding venue for our anniversary, we noticed our wedding album on display at our venue- how cool! Dawn is not afraid to take risks. She is as sweet and kind as they come. She will provide you with the photos of your dreams and they will last a lifetime. We are so thankful to have Dawn in our life to capture our most important life happenings.

“Dawn was AMAZING! She had such amazing vision for the photos both engagement and during the wedding. Her eye for photography is uncanny. I would recommend her 10 times over for any event or pictures!!!”

From Audrey’s mother:

“Dawn was recommended to us by a photographer friend who said she had a ‘great eye’! She couldn’t have been more right. We hired her for my daughters engagement and wedding. The engagement photos were taken at sunrise on the beach and were breathtakingly beautiful! The wedding photos were creative, thoughtful and equally as lovely as the engagement photos. Dawn was always prompt, courteous and not afraid to take charge and get things done (in a good way). She is incredibly talented and I feel blessed to have found her. She will be my go to photographer for any future event.”

From Audrey’s stepmom and father:

“Dawn has given our family a treasured gift. Her chronology of my stepdaughter’s wedding beautifully capture the emotion of the day – romantic and alive! Her magic is no accident. A week before the wedding she traveled from RI to Boston to survey our suggested outdoor photo sites. Her prep work paid off as she covered all the modern family combinations efficiently while keeping everyone relaxed. And the backdrops are gorgeous. We do not even recall seeing her at the reception but the multitudes of candids are heartfelt and tell the story. Top notch at her craft and a pleasure!!”

Michelle & Russell

“Our first experience with Dawn was at my sister’s wedding in 2015 where Dawn captured what came to be our favorite photo of my boyfriend and I. So, it was a natural reaction that when my boyfriend proposed, Dawn would be the one to capture our engagement photos. Dawn provided us with many options of where to shoot the photos, as we did not have a specific spot we wanted, and was flexible to reschedule when the weather for the initial date did not look great. My fiance is not one to have his photo taken, but Dawn was able to capture the most amazing shots of him. We both felt so comfortable as Dawn captured romantic and intimate moments between us. She made us laugh and put us at ease as we got used to posing for the photos. We cannot wait to have someone with such charisma, charm, and natural talent photograph our wedding in 2018! Dawn is AMAZING!”

Danielle & William

“Dawn is not only talented and artistic but she also easygoing. When we first linked up for our sunrise engagement photo it was clear she had an idea in her head. Her vision led to the most beautiful shots! We laughed the whole time. Dawn is also amazingly responsive which makes her great to deal with. My hectic schedule means I’m texting or emailing at odd hours and she is always quick to respond. I can’t recommend her enough! She’s receptive and creative and I will be using her for every event we have in the future! If you want to love your photos – use Dawn Temple to capture the moment forever!”
