About Christy Dawn
Hey there! I’m Christy Dawn, though people typically just call me Christy. On a typical day, you can bet that I’m aching to be outside – trying to find a good new place to hike or explore. In the evening, I am snuggled up on my couch with my 2 cats probably watching Parks and Rec. My love for some good chips and queso is what I’m known for – and often there’s a margarita involved.
My style is authentic and adventurous and I work hard to bring that into my photography work. I love serving the world by showcasing the true effortless beauty that God gave to us. It can be so easy to forget how beautiful we are.
As a wedding photographer, I look for people who aren’t afraid to be their true selves. My goal is not to just be another “vendor,” but to be able to share in some wonderful moments. I believe that our paths cross for a reason, and not just to be acquaintances. I feel so lucky to meet such amazing couples and give them the confidence to showcase their love for one another.
When I’m not busy working on wedding photography, you can catch me grabbing a beer with a friend. Microbreweries are a new-found love of mine and I am so intrigued by all the types of beer one can make. Otherwise, I’m probably day-dreaming about where I should travel to next. (If you have any awesome recommendations, let me know!!)
If you’re dying to hear more, here are 5 things you might not know about me:
- I have always dreamt of living in Colorado. Can you imagine always having those mountains as a backdrop? Sign me up!
- My chin is 10 degrees warmer than the rest of my face. I know, weird! I’m sure you’re feeling your chin right now. Truth is, I had a birthmark there for most of my life – I blame it on that.
- I love the smell of coffee, but HATE the taste. Starbucks grande hot chocolate with whole milk and love? That’s my order almost every day.
- I am a second soprano, but hate singing on the spot. I’m sure you’ll catch me sing-talking from time to time though.
- Dream job when I was younger? Designing for LEGO. Let’s be real, it’s still a dream job. No real “cons” on that list.
