Amazing photos & human!

My fiancé and I have never had professional photos till Dionne. She is a blast to be around. She made every moment fun, silly and memorable. We were so comfortable around her and tend to be awkward when a camera comes around. she made it super easy.

If you want the total package of a photographer you should stop thinking "Should I" and DO IT! she will not disappoint. She will be our forever photographer through all our stages of life to come. I cannot wait for more moments with Dionne and the magic she creates when behind a camera.

Dionne is everything and more when it comes to photography!

Dionne is not only an amazing photographer, but an amazing human being. From the beginning she is enthusiastic and fun, and really tries to get to know the couple to help make them feel as comfortable as possible. On wedding day she is easy going, and willing to make things happen when there’s any hiccups. Her photos were one of my favorite things to come out of our day. She is able to capture every single moment, even ones you didn’t realize you needed. The candids she takes tell the entire story of your day. She is able to capture light and add her own art to the photos that make it impossible to choose favorites. 100000% recommend Dionne!

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.
