Your wedding will be a unique reflection of you. I take the time to get to know my couples personally, and that allows me to create authentic, meaningful images. My shooting style has been described as a beautiful collision of candid photojournalism and artistic editorial fashion photography. Behind the lens I'm quietly unobtrusive, integrating artistic and creative qualities while keeping your photos fresh and real. I am fun and easy going and LOVE the chance to do a few wild things to get the shots we want.

Don't forget, Dauss is a fashion photographer, and he loves to boast that flair in his weddings! Pre wedding photography is a cultural tradition found in parts of Asia and the United States and can be described as a stylized session where a bride or bride and groom can take photos in their wedding attire without the time constraints typically associated with a wedding day. This includes our high fashion bridal session and Save the dress session. As an Indianapolis Pre Wedding Photographer, we are able to offer our couples these stylized sessions including dress rental and creation, stylized hair and makeup, and unique locations. Pre-wedding sessions or day after sessions are available as collection ad-ons at booking or any other time.
Dauss has shot at some of the most popular wedding venues in Indiana as well as some of the most unique hidden gems such as Indiana Roof Ballroom, Historic Union Station, Scottish Rite Cathedral, Indiana State Museum, Laurel Hall, The Conrad, D'amore, Omni Severin, Black Iris Estates, Lucas Estates, Gallery Forty-Two, Le Meridian, The Crane Bay, Regions Tower, Biltwell, Deer Park Manor, and Palais Royale. The list goes on. We are one of the most skilled and creative wedding photography studios in the Indianapolis area, including but not limited to Carmel, Zionsville, Fishers, Noblesville, Chicago, Louisville, and Cincinnati. He has even photographed weddings throughout the United States, including popular cities like Clear Water, Capitola, Cordiano, and Las Vegas. His love of travel has also brought us to destinations in Jamaica and even Europe.
As a destination wedding photographer, his work typically takes him to 2-5 new locations each year. Hiring an American photographer to photograph your Italian destination wedding has many benefits, including the ability to deliver high quality, tangible products right here close to home.
