Dawn Marie of Moments Ever After Photography is a portrait and wedding photographer based out of Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania. She would describe herself as someone who learned the importance of photos the hard way after tragically losing her father in 2010. "I wish I would have taken more pictures of him and I. I took him for granted and I never want to make the same mistake again. I now take more photos of everyone that I love and I do it often." She then became a Mom in 2012 and hasn't stopped taking photos since. "I really started to enjoy photography after my daughter was born. Since I became a Mom, I look at life differently and appreciate more of God's blessings. My daughter inspires me and reminds me of all of the beautiful things in the world." Dawn has her daughter to thank for leading her to her calling in life. She loves her job and truly enjoys capturing beautiful images of loved ones for people to cherish forever.
