Dana is truly incredible! I can't express how happy we were working with her. She was very responsive, professional, and most importantly organized. She let me know everything that she would need from me the day of the wedding, which is very important when you are keeping a running list of items. She has an awesome personality that makes you feel completely comfortable and like a million bucks! As far as the pictures, she is speedy and very high quality. I don't think she takes a bad picture, and that is saying a lot considering our rowdy wedding guests! She is amazing, and you will be so happy you chose her!
Choosing Dana as our photographer was one best decisions we made. She was so sweet and easy to work with our photos came out authentic and gorgeous! I highly recommend her.
DANA WAS AMAZING! She responded to my emails within the day, sometimes (and most often) within the hour. I loved how I felt like her friend throughout the process. Every exchange I had with her put me at ease. Dana was extremely flexible with me with scheduling our engagement pictures. It impressed me that she was always willing to plan for rain or a possible rain check. The BEST part of using Dana is how she calmed my nerves on my wedding day! I was extremely nervous about getting my dress dirty, but she helped me quickly work past that. My friends were in shock that Dana had a picture for me THE NEXT DAY! I had all of my wedding pictures before I knew it. Dana works around the clock to keep all of her deadlines. She's a gem in a world of "I'll get back to you". You will not regret booking her :)
I've loved Dana's work since I saw some of her pet photography at my local vet. When I got engaged, she was definitely a front runner for our wedding photographer. When I contacted her, even though she was out of town at a conference, she responded right away. We met for margaritas and showed me some of her work and I was sold! I booked right away, and my now husband and I couldn't be more thankful that we did. She was incredibly easy to work with, and even showed up to my bridal portraits with treats for my dog! She helped me out immensely coming up with a plan for the day, and was flexible when things ended up getting delayed. She and her second shooter for my wedding Emily were amazing. They captured everything. Before, during, and after the ceremony. Seriously, so many amazing pictures! Our families all raved about her! She took the time to get to us, which is so important. We were absolutely not disappointed. I'm also glad that we went with the full day coverage. We weren't limited with coverage, which meant that we got a bunch of really fun reception pictures! I'd definitely recommend if you're on the fence. She's seriously awesome!
Dana was so AMAZING! She knows her stuff and is professional and fun! She is more than just a photographer, she will consult with you on all things wedding throughout the planning process! The pictures turned out perfect and she was so fast in her delivery!!! I couldn’t of ask for more of a positive experience!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dana... I would recommend her to anyone, anytime, anywhere they are getting married! I am an out-of-state bride who had difficulty getting to Charleston for my bridal portraits and Dana really made sure to work with my schedule. When my bridal portrait location cancelled on me last minute, Dana took time out of her vacation to recommend local places for me to contact. She made my very shy fiance feel so comfortable during our photos and he won't stop raving about her either! We got married during a hurricane, when half of Charleston was flooded and she left a couple of days before our wedding and stayed in a hotel to be sure that she would make it. Her pictures are so beautiful and she really makes you feel special. In summary, Dana is amazing!
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Dana twice for our wedding. First, she shot our engagement photos. She instantly makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and has a great eye for unique shots. Then she photographed our wedding day. She not only captured the details, but the wedding party photos to the pictures of me and my husband look so natural, this was important for me as I didn't want our photos to look too posed. Not only is her photography fantastic, she was truly wonderful to work with, one of my favorite wedding vendors. She had superior attention to detail and was diligent in getting us our photos in a speedy manner (which is really exciting, I could not wait to see them). For me, choosing a photographer is one of the most important decisions a bride and groom have to make, because this is what you have to look at when the big day is done (aside from the great memories and marrying your soulmate). I would highly recommend Dana to those looking for a wedding photographer, she is top notch!
Aside from the venue, we all know the most important part of our weddings is finding who is going to capture all of the special moments and details of our day. Being able to go back to look through them time and time and time again and instantly get thrown back to the best day of your life is an art and takes a special eye and gift in a photographer. Well, folks, you've got that in Dana, plain and simple. Dana takes the time to get to know you as a person and a couple, instantly making you feel at ease. She makes sure every single iota of the day is covered and captured just the way you like it...no, love it. I'm usually the one behind the camera, I came to her with an idea (or two or three) of how I envisioned our pictures. She answered my countless emails with flare and assurance. Even on our wedding day, which it thunderstormed and rained, she helped assuage my worries of having a rainy wedding and told me the light after it rains is perfect for what we wanted! And the end product? Breathtakingly gorgeous shots. Every single one of them. Every time we go through the pictures again (which is often, mind you) we're instantly jetisoned to the excitement and happiness we felt that entire day. Her right hand woman, Sloan, was a dream and incredibly talented as well -- the guys had a blast with her.
Long story short, Dana is your woman if you're seeking a top-notch, friendly, talented, and genuinely amazing photographer for your special day. So go ahead, send that inquiry email on in, you won't regret it!
We booked Dana for our engagement photography and she was amazing! We had so much phone during the session at Magnolia Plantation and Downtown Charleston. To our surprise, she was able to get us our pictures within a few days! I highly recommend Dana for all of your photography needs, wedding related and beyond. She was also really great with capturing shots of our fluffy family member, our dog Charlie. Thanks for everything Dana, your the best!!!!
Dana was fantastic in so many ways. I already knew that her work was beautiful, but when I received my images I was blown away. She listened to my vision and used her amazing talents to capture it in a way that I would have never imagined. She was amazing with my finace during our engagement shoot, creating the perfect pictures. And during my bridal portraits she made me feel comfortable and beautiful! She really knows the ins and out of Charleston as well and was able to provide the most amazing backdrops for the images that I will cherish forever!
Dana was an absolute pleasure to work with! We knew exactly what we wanted when booking a wedding photographer, and Dada delivered exactly what we expected! She was kind, professional, quick to respond, and a joy to be around. We spent a considerable amount of time with her between our engagement shoot, as well as our wedding day, and it felt as if she was more of a friend than simply a stranger shooting our wedding. While this may seem odd to many, it is honestly one of the most important qualities when looking at photographers. We felt so comfortable around her that our pictures looked truly genuine and real. All of our guests and friends who have viewed our photos commented numerous times that they simply "looked like us". Dana did an amazing job of capturing our big day in a manner that displayed our quirks, habits, and unique qualities that make us who we are. We couldn't be more pleased with our photos, as well as the amazing turn around time. I have heard of couples waiting months to receive their gallery, only seeing a few teasers as they wait, but Dana had our full gallery posted before we even returned from our honeymoon. It was honestly the best surprise! I can say with 100% certainty that we will be using Dana again in the future as our family begins to grow!
Searching for wedding photographers is no small feat. Photographs are what's left after the wedding day is over and what will be past down for years to come. I actually stumbled across one of Dana's photos on Instagram and was really impressed with the bright colors that her photographs conveyed. During our first phone conversation I could tell how passionate and excited Dana was about what she does. We booked our engagement and wedding pictures with Dana and were blown away with both! During the wedding day Dana and her second shooter helped to calm nerves and made us feel like our wedding was the most beautiful one ever :) I mean, how stunning are these photos?!: http://www.danacubbageweddings.com/blog/chelsey-matt-july-4th-creek-club-at-ion-wedding/
Dana was the best choice I made for my wedding. She is simply amazing! I planned a destination wedding for Charleston from Northern Virginia. Dana not only took the most amazing wedding photos, she also had EXCELLENT recommendations for other vendors. Looking for wedding vendors in Charleston, especially from a long distance can be simply overwhelming. Dana was there with recommendations, advice, and so many tips. I not only spoke with her throughout the whole process but read her blog religiously :) She is right about everything! I highly recommend doing an engagement session with Dana, it's so worth it, not only to document the special time of being engaged but it helped us so much with pictures day of because my husband and I were completely comfortable in front of the camera with Dana behind it. She and her second shooter, Emily, were amazing day of. They were flexible, fun, energetic, and completely professional. The pictures were the most important part for me and the images are simply AMAZING. We did a first look, got twice as many pictures, and were able to enjoy our cocktail hour and entire reception. She can get perfect images like nobody's business and so very quickly. We also received our images within FIVE DAYS. Dana is hands down the best!!
Dana is hands down the best of the best! (I will try to keep this short!) I remember searching for our wedding photographer and stumbling upon Dana's images and feeling the emotions through the pictures... Her photographs are modern and timeless all at the same time! Exactly what we were looking for. We had a blast spending time with her during our engagement session and on our wedding day! Dana has such an effortless way of coaching you through poses and makes it soooo easy and fun! She's proffessional, extremely hard working, honest, so sweet, and incredibly talented. If you want someone as committed to your wedding as you are - Dana is your girl! We just loved her and Emily. I'm honestly thinking of other pictures we need In our future just to work with Dana again!!! Thank you Dana for giving us a way to relive the most beautiful day of our lives over and over again.
Our experience with Dana Cubbage Weddings was more amazing than I could have ever expected. Dana is very friendly, efficient and professional. We are so happy with how our wedding photos turned out and we were pleasantly surprised with how quickly Dana had them ready for us! I would definitely recommend Dana Cubbage Weddings to any bride!
I cannot begin to say enough wonderful things about Dana. What impressed me first, is that she wanted to chat and learn more about my husband and I, our story and my dreams for our big day. I was very nervous about bridal portraits and the whole to do- but Dana walked me through the process wonderfully. She made fabulous recommendations for hair & makeup and I loved that she took the lead on our stroll near the battery for photos. My images were to me the next morning- I was amazed! After seeing the bridals- I was twice as excited for the wedding!
From start to finish- the photography of our wedding day was flawless. Dana worked closely with me to build an excellent timeline that allowed for delays (so grateful we did) and was there to begin earlier than I even expected. The questionnaires and notes to help me better prepare for the day were unlike anything I had seen- organized, thorough and simple to finish.
We received our images A WEEK after our wedding! Unheard of. Our families and The both of us are so in love with the photos. Dana captured our day beautifully!
I could go on for days- I must say from start to finish, this sweet lady makes you feel loved, and welcome, and as if your wedding is her only priority. Dana truly goes above and beyond and her passion and care shows through her images.
We are thrilled that we chose Dana to capture moments we will forever treasure.
