Meet the team

dawn and joe

Cheese and wine, peanut butter and jelly, Target and Starbucks. Let's face it, some things just belong together. At DCCP we love celebrating you finding your perfect partner, because we have too! 

Hi there! We are Dawn and Joe, the premier wedding photography team in the St. Louis area. We know that two is better than one, especially on the most important day in your life. 

I am the lead photographer, Joe second shoots and masters the perfect lighting. I pose our clients to look their best, while Joe flips your dress in the air for the perfect action shot. I remind your bridesmaids where to hold their bouquets while walking down the aisle, and Joe perfects a room full of neckties when the groomsmen forget how. 

We have been at this for over a decade, and we have both developed our own special strengths throughout a wedding day that will ensure yours is everything you have dreamed of. Sometimes I glance at Joe across the room and I swear he has telepathy as he rushes over with the perfect lens for my next shot!

Just like you and your soulmate, we have strengths and weaknesses, ups and downs, and can NEVER decide what to have for dinner. But no matter what, we know that we are better together, and honestly and furiously love what we do together. We can't wait to celebrate with you!

We will help you plan your wardrobe and locations, and give you a glam makeover in our on site salon before heading out to your shoot. We will document your love through a series of posed and candid images that you will love. We will help you feel comfortable in front of the camera and most importantly, have fun!
