a boutique collective of creatives
with an artistic, ethereal, candid and organic style of storytelling.
Sister City Photography is a boutique collective of your area’s best visual artists with an emphasis on candid, organic and artful storytelling.
When you work with Sister City, you’re in good hands (fourteen of them, to be exact) - we are a team of creative, entrepreneurial, and daydreaming women who love love and love photography.
We’re based in BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS (NEW ENGLAND / EAST COAST) and BISBEE, ARIZONA (WEST COAST) and travel everywhere in between (and beyond).
A collective? A boutique? Who is who? Not to worry, we’ll explain:
Send us a message with your shoot ideas or wedding date. If you have a photographer preference at this point, definitely let us know.
Daniela (info lady/calendar keeper/editor) will get back to you as soon as possible with our photographers’ availability.
You’ll have the opportunity to view portfolios + make sure you love your photographer’s work.
We all work together (yeah, it’s really, really sweet) to make your photography vision come alive. We have a fun questionnaire and timeline for you to fill out.
You can always set up a chat or meeting with your photographer before your session or event.
Your awesome photographer(s) will show up to your shoot or event, make some magic with you, and you’ll have a great time.
Your photos are professionally edited and sent to you in a beautiful online gallery (for events) within 3 weeks - a quicker-than-usual turnaround for our industry.
We keep in touch and stay friends for life (okay? We would just loooove that.)
There are a few things we LOVE about working as a team (and think you will, too):
When we chat about your vision, we can find a photographer perfectly tailored to your style preference
We can more easily accommodate rescheduling shoots due to weather, etc, and if someone were to need to miss your special event (though this has never happened!), we’ll have more photographers available to cover
Our second shooters, when available, will be another photographer from the team (aka, amazing)
We’re based in more places which means you’re less likely to pay a travel fee
We prioritize travel in our lives and work and are willing to meet you somewhere wild
All put together, we’ve photographed a ridiculous amount of weddings, events, shoots, you name it. We’ve got your back.
Hi! Thanks for your interest in working with me and my rad team. This new venture really isn’t so new: I’ve been working with these amazing ladies for a few years now, and they’ve been shooting under my business name (Daniela Dawson Photography) and doing a great job of it. It was about time I re-branded and gave them more of the spotlight, and do something else I love: give talented artists more opportunity, and connect clients and couples with these wonderful photographers.
Do not fear! This is still the same crew and business you have known and trusted since 2011 - still one of the top rated in the Boston area (which I am oh so proud of - thank you for your support!)
No matter how you got here, if we’re old friends or strangers - thank you for coming along for this little adventure (of love, life, light-chasing and photo-taking.)
Much love now and always, -D.
