My name is Dawn Castor and I specialize in Wedding and Real Estate Photography. I am backed by 19 years, as well as several hundred weddings, of experience and reputation.
My wedding photography has been featured in several magazines and I feel privileged to be allowed to work with my couples on their very special, emotion filled day. I am honored to be chosen to capture this special day for them with imagery that will be enjoyed by many generations to come!
When photographing a wedding, I have a non-traditional, candid approach when I work. I photograph a combination of candids, posed candids, traditional formal shots and of course, fun pictures!
I opened Middle Gray Photography back in 1995 and have worked as a professional wedding photographer for 19 years with a concentration in Charlotte, North Carolina as well as South Carolina, Georgia and all of Florida. In July 2014, I relocated to the Tampa Bay area of Florida, but will continue to offer my wedding photography services up through the Carolinas. My rates are extremely affordable and my results are unique, eye-catching, and memorable. I love my job and want to be there!You receive your printing rights!
Wedding Day Philosophy and Details:
My job is to document your day ~ I don’t believe a photographer should put a limit on the number of photographs that are taken for an event as important and unpredictable as a wedding. My focus is making sure you have great wedding pictures to come home to!
I give my couples the printing rights (not copyrights) to their images. This enables my customers to get extremely inexpensive prints and allows me to concentrate on being a photographer, not a salesperson.
Every job I book, I shoot. I would never send an “assistant” to shoot your wedding. I do charge minimal travel fees for travel over 1 hour from my location and these travel fees vary based on circumstances (if hotel is needed, etc.).
My focus has been in the NC, SC, GA and FL areas of the country, but I am excited to travel to wherever your wedding location is….I always welcome the opportunity to explore new scenery!
I book on a “monthly capacity” basis. This is the maximum number of weddings that I am able to shoot per month while maintaining the ability to provide quality work on your images, as well as great customer service for my couples. Enjoying my job and customers is more important to me than how much income I can squeeze into a month! This means that even if I have your particular date available, I will not accept the contract if I have already reached that particular month’s capacity of bookings. In recent years, Friday and Sunday weddings have gained in popularity, so certain months can fill up quickly!
