Dawn Appel
Professional Photography & Videography


WOW what can I say!! The moment we met Dawn we knew she was the lady we wanted to photograph our special day.

We cannot thank her enough she has helped us with so much from helping me with my Dress, Choreographing our first dance, being there for me when I needed advice, as well as taking amazing photo’s!

It was so calming having Dawn with me whilst getting ready for our wedding, she took over and made me sit and try to relax – She made it such a great atmosphere while we were getting ready always smiling, laughing and making jokes to keep me occupied and to avoid me getting nervous.

I would not have enjoyed and relaxed as much if I didn’t have Dawn there coordinating the order of the day, the photo’s, the guests,  the cake cutting, and even making sure the DJ was ready with our requested songs, she is a girl of many talents.

We had the greatest day of our lives and now have the photo’s to keep us smiling!

The only thing that disappoints me is that we can’t do it all over again….DAWN APPEL YOU ARE A STAR! XXX

"When my daughter decided she wanted to have the same photographer as her friend did for her wedding, I knew she made a great decision after I saw her friend's wedding pictures. From beginning to end, They Are Gorgeous handled the photography and videography perfectly and will such professionalism. Dawn, you are a Gem! You took an impossible venue and made it perfect! My daughter Sarah and I are so very happy with the pictures and videos! Sarah's wedding memories are beautifully preserved thanks to you and your team! We can't wait to see the albums!

As a bride I had interviewed many wedding photographers, Dawn and I had talked many times on the phone prior to arranging a meeting. She was recommended to us by the Meydan Hotel.
When we met her, I immediately knew we found our wedding photographer. She is so friendly and funny .And that is exactly what we wanted. To feel comfortable with our wedding photographer.
She was great to have with us on the day. Everybody got along with her. She knew exactly what she was doing the whole time.
We received our pictures and got so many compliments.
Some people thought we were just modeling , others thought it was a celebrity wedding clipping from a magazine.
It’s unbelievable how beautiful "each" picture came out.
Thank you Dawn

Dear Dawn, thank you for the pleasant time we have with you during our 8th wedding anniversary in the Burj Al Arab. The photoshoot recorded the happiness of these 4 days in Dubai. We felt very comfortable with you, it was entertaining, professional and as well personal. We hope to see you at any time in The Netherlands, where you have lived for a while in the past. We wish you the best!"

They all looked absolutely beautiful. Even my husband tells me that Laura´s makeup was perfect! Can’t wait to see the pictures! Once again, my sincere gratitude, for everything you did for us on that wonderful day! Please do a lot of photoshop on my wrinkles! I need it badly! Much love and see you in Dubai next time, or give me a call if you come to Spain! I would love to have a glass of wine with you! Gilda: "the mother of the bride"

My experience with Dawn was the best ever! All I could ever dream for in a photographer, she made me feel so comfortable, relaxed and have faith with myself.
She made every second special and really brings out the best in you!
She is an amazing make-up artist, photographer and the nicest person you could ever meet.
I can’t wait to do new pictures with her and recommend her to everyone who wants’ nothing but the best and have fun!
I walked away with a new confident, happy and most of all proud of myself.
Thank you Dawn for everything, you are a truly amazing person!
