Dionne was amazing. She actually came recommended to my husband and I through her husband, amazing DJ Craig (Silicon Forest). We used both of them for our day. I honestly cannot say enough about working with Dionne. She was very communicative from the start and easy to work with. She understood that my husband and I are not creatives or center of attention people, and directed when need be and let us be when need be. The photos are to die for. The only problem is narrowing down how many to print/order because they are all so awesome. The lighting was great. We got married in winter and she had no issues with the weather. When the day was super delayed, she went with it. We had to narrow down the photo list pre-wedding, but it never felt like it in the final product. She was in the thick of it for the dinner/dancing - even getting down on the floor in the middle of our impromptu Sweet Caroline dance circle. She ran with it when we decided to spur of the moment keep the reception open an extra hour. The photos came back to us quickly too - 36 hours for a preview, 3 weeks for a slideshow of selected photos, and 6 weeks for all the photos. We're now in the process of selecting the photos and design for the physical album - which is an amazing extra on her package that I never thought of, but now can't wait to get. My husband and I were concerned slightly about the price of all of this, but I would do it all again hands down - with Dionne (and Craig) being the first vendor(s) we select. I want Dionne to take all our photos from here on out - since we had a winter wedding, and we couldn't necessarily take advantage of Golden Hour lighting, I want her to take a random photo sess of us just for those photos because she's AMAZING!!! Her personality is wonderful, and the first thing I said upon reading her website was that I felt she was my spirit animal. And after working with her, that has just further solidified. You need to book her now.Sent on 05/05/2019

Amazing photographer = happy bride
After my wedding, I wanted to relive the day over and over and over again. I had so much fun dancing and singing and drinking. While I was SO THANKFUL that the wedding planning was over, I was bummed out that the party was over, and everyone we loved was going home. When we received our wedding photos back from Dionne it was at midnight, I happen to check my phone and I was instantly filled with JOY. I woke my husband up and we sat in bed scrolling through the pictures together. Reliving the wonderful day. I have looked at our photos over and over again since then catching little details that I missed before, or laughing at the photo of my grumpy niece or my heart smiling of grandpa and grandma dancing on the dance for or the funny faces being made in the photo booth. Dionne caught all of these memories and more and I am so thankful we chose her. I wish we could relive the day again, because if I could, I would choose her again, and not change a thing.Sent on 09/17/2019

Prepare to laugh and take great photos!
Dionne was a blast to work with. My wife and I didn't know what we were doing, but Dionne was extremely helpful and made the entire experience fun. I highly recommend her!Sent on 09/17/2019
In our humble opinion, Dionne Kraus of SweetDee Photography is the best photographer in the Portland area and it's only a matter of time before she's booked so far in advance that our recommendation wouldn't matter :) She uses the best equipment Nikon has to offer and it really shows in the final product. Her workflow includes complete editing in Lightroom and Photoshop for every single photo that you receive. Dionne does not let any detail go unnoticed from the moment of capturing the shot until the moment you receive your digital copy. We're also amazed by her turnaround time. She'll usually have a sneak peek posted within 2 weeks and the whole wedding is usually posted within 4-6 weeks. However, her true talent is her ability to light up a room and set the guests at ease while she works. Just look at her portfolio and you'll see the distinction of an educated, experienced, creative, and professional photographer.
