dorie garrett




My name is Dorie, your local Midwestern photographer. I have had a love for photography for a very long time. I grew up in a family of photographers and videographers and I spent many hours of my childhood sitting in on portrait sessions, holding the spare equipment, and helping set up and change out the backdrops. I was the family “go-for” for the formative years of my life!

In college, I was able to take a film photography class as part of my major, which helped reignite my love of capturing a moment or a feeling. It was really special to be able to learn the whole process– start to finish– of loading the film in the camera, adjusting settings, processing film, and manually printing the photos on paper. I even got to use my late great-grandfather’s camera: the Pentax K1000. 

I believe that photography is a way of capturing not just an image, but a moment in time. Whether it’s senior portraits, professional headshots, family photos, or event photography, my favorite subject has always been people! Through the lens of my camera, I’m able to more clearly appreciate how precious creation is. God creates the beauty; my camera and I are simply witnesses. 


I’d love to help you capture your moment!
