St. Augustine wedding
Dana was absolutely amazing. She was kind, professional, detail oriented, and creative. She was my photographer for my wedding in July 2018 and the photos she took are absolutely breathtaking. Her assistant was also very pleasent to work with. Dana was more than patient with my wedding party and very organized. She captured the entire night and even moments that I didn’t know she was around for! We Absolutely LOVE our gallery and couldn’t have asked for a better photographer!

Dana is top-knotch amazing at what she does, and is worth every penny. We have INCREDIBLE wedding photos to remember our special day forever, and know that they're going to always look classically beautiful. Dana is accessible, agreeable, and accommodating to the craziness of weddings. We had high standards, and are very happy.Sent on 06/04/2018

Dana is absolutely phenomenal!! Her work is beautiful and she captured every detail and moment of our entire wedding day. She had sneak peak pictures to us just days following our wedding and we could not be happier with how they all turned out!! I would recommend her to anyone!!

I just finished reliving my daughters beautiful New Years Eve wedding at Epping Forest Yacht Club. I do so at least once a week by going through the absolutely gorgeous photos that her photographer, Dana Goodson, took. The pictures are seriously stunning. Dana captured Meg and Jay's wedding perfectly from start to finish, doing it with a smile on her face! She arrived to the bride's room right on time and like clockwork took charge, creating a vision of fairytale pictures. So many of our guest complimented us on how they loved the fact that everything was so organized, and they weren't having to wait hours after the ceremony to wait on the bride and groom while they had their pictures made. Dana knew exactly what to do in a timely manner, and the wedding couple actually got to enjoy the cocktail hour rather than to pose for a million pictures, due to the fact that Dana choreographed the whole thing so well. We also didn't have to wait long to get the photos back, and she even sent us a sneak peak while my daughter was on her honeymoon! If you are looking for a quality photographer for your wedding, who knows how to capture the most beautiful moments, look no further than Dana Goodson. Truly one of the best decisions we made.Sent on 04/20/2018

Dana is by far the BEST in the business!!! We instantly loved how organized, experienced, professional, and kind she was from the first time we met! She did our engagement pictures which were phenomenal - and we couldn't wait until we did our wedding photos! They were absolutely perfect!! Dana is extremely experienced and makes you feel like she has everything covered from the preparation before the big day, and then all the way throughout! She easily kept track of the timeline and which pictures we requested, as well as came up with many of her own creative shots! The picture quality and angles were also gorgeous - not to mention her beautiful editing! Thank you, Dana!!

My husband and I highly recommend Dana! She so naturally captured the beautiful scenes and emotions of our special day, and I will marvel at our wedding album for years to come. We couldn't be happier with how our photos turned out and are so grateful we had the opportunity to work with the very best!Sent on 11/07/2017

Highly recommended. Dana was extremely professional, kind and great at her job. Our photos were stunning and she was a pleasure to work with.
Jaclyn · Married on 11/05/2016
Dana is seriously amazing! Her eye for good lighting & angles make beautiful shots. She was very professional & understanding (my husband hates pictures!). She blended right into ceremony, cocktail hour & reception while getting amazing pictures!
Alison · Married on 10/23/2016
Dana was a complete professional with a personal demeanor. We worked with her to make sure that important pictures with loved ones and friends were taken. Further, it was a pleasant surprise to see all the moments that she captured before and during the ceremony and throughout the reception! Thank you, Dana!!

Dana will capture those memories that you will share for a lifetime. She did a great job photographing the emotion of our wedding, if I had to do it all over again, I would pick her every time.Sent on 12/21/2016
After a short call to Dana we knew that she was passionate about photography and not only recording our event through photos but really capturing the memories for us.
On our wedding day she captured my husband and his groomsmen quickly and stayed out of their space enough to see those emotions that were still trying to stay hidden. She arrived early to my getting ready location, before I knew it we were supposed to be on the way to our first look. Looking back, one of the best parts of the day was Dana seeing the amazing lighting that just happened to occur at our location, she delayed the timeline and made sure to capture me getting ready in that light. She gave us as much time during the first look as we needed until she set us up for other shots. This time alone with my husband was great, it was as though she wasn’t there.
If I can give any future words of advice to a bride or groom to be – make slow movements, look at each other, be you and enjoy the day. Let the photographer capture you all – those are the photos that will bring back memories of a lifetime. Your friends will take enough photos to “record” the events on their phones, but let the photographer capture the moment and the emotions. Dana will do exactly that.

Dana was the perfect choice as our wedding photographer. She was highly recommended by our friends and family, and she did not disappoint. Dana is extremely professional, extraordinarily talented, and just so sweet. She had so much patience on our wedding day and went out of her way to make sure we got all the best shots. She tried her best to keep us on track when we were running late and just kept smiling every time we asked for another group photo. She is so kindhearted and genuinely a lovely person. And her assistant Brittany was very sweet too! She got our photos back to us in a timely fashion (about 3 weeks after the wedding) and they all turned out beautifully. Thank you so much, Dana!
Erica · Married on 10/01/2016
We loved working with Dana. Ours was a destination wedding, and we met Dana in person for the first time on the day of the wedding. (We had several email flurries and phone calls in the time leading up to the wedding. And she was so helpful suggesting other vendors when I was in a bind!) The photos turned out beautifully, and we especially loved how she was able to capture spontaneous moments throughout the evening.
Chelsea · Married on 07/09/2016
Dana was so professional & really made us at ease in front of the camera. She gave great direction & helped the day move along perfectly! She was fun to work with & made our wedding day THAT much more enjoyable! We can't wait to see the finish product soon, but have no doubt the shots are going to turn out amazing!
Erika · Married on 07/03/2016
5 stars across the board! If you want beautiful pictures, and a reliable, organized photographer, Dana is it! From the first few emails I sent inquiring about all sorts of wedding photo details, Dana responded instantaneously and continued to show her professionalism throughout our entire wedding process. She knows the wedding process in and out and helped me set up a perfect timeline to keep my day on track. To top it all off, she had ALL of our wedding photos posted for us within a week of our wedding! She's really the best! -Erika K.
Hannah · Married on 06/11/2016
Using Dana as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made! She is so incredibly talented, and was able to capture so many genuine moments throughout the day. We will forever have her images to be able to relive those moments - And we are so grateful for that! Could not recommend her more to anyone looking for a photographer!
Lauren · Married on 05/29/2016
Dana was an absolute pleasure to work with and we LOVED how our pictures turned out. She went above and beyond and made a stressful process very seamless. We loved working with Dana!
Lauren · Married on 04/30/2016
Dana was an absolute pleasure to work with. Very professional and the pictures were more beautiful than expected. I would definitely recommend Dana!
Lauren · Married on 04/16/2016
Choosing a photographer for our wedding was a HUGE deal. We didn't have a videographer, so capturing our day and the feeling it gave us through photos was of utmost importance. Dana was extremely easy to work with and very professional. We had an initial call with her to talk through our options and what we can expect from her services. She was also very willing to listen to what we wanted and was open to any additions/changes we requested. On the day of the wedding she showed up on time and her and her assistant were extremely professional and did a great job of capturing the moments without you even knowing they were there. Dana did an amazing job with the photos & editing, and we are in love with how they turned out. Another thing we really appreciated about Dana was her quick turnaround time in getting the photos back to us - this was a HUGE plus as a bride dying to see photos!!! We would recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer for their wedding. Thank you, Dana!!
Kathleen · Married on 04/09/2016
We absolutely loved working with Dana! She was so easy to work with and worked with us to make sure every detail was perfect. The quality of our wedding pictures are top notch and our album came out better than we ever hoped it could be! She captured all of our must have pics and also captured some of the most amazing pics that we didn't even think to do! We highly recommend Dana. She is pricey, but the quality of work and professionalism justifies the price!

Choosing a photographer was our biggest priority after booking our venue so we put a lot of time and effort into finding the right person. After doing tons of research we finally decided on Dana, and it was one of the best decisions we made. We loved working with her! Not only is her work absolutely stunning, Dana is the nicest person you could ever hope to work with. She always responded to questions quickly, and she was very helpful, offering great advice when we were trying to choose locations to shoot our photos. My husband and I were nervous the day of the wedding because we don’t like being the center of attention, and we thought we’d feel uncomfortable posing for pictures, but Dana and her assistant were so comfortable to be around and so good at what they do that they put us completely at ease. We actually had fun hanging out with them while we were taking pictures!
And let’s not forget about the quality of Dana’s photos: they’re gorgeous. Unfortunately, the weather was not very cooperative the day of our wedding (there were reports of snow flurries and the skies were overcast and gray), but Dana is so good at what she does that the undesirable weather didn’t stop her from capturing beautiful photos of our day. We got our pictures back quickly after the wedding, and everyone that’s seen them has commented on how talented she is. They’re that good.
We really can't say enough about Dana and the quality of her work. Her photos are amazing, and she's such a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding!
Cassie · Married on 12/19/2015
Let me begin with the fact that she is by FAR the most amazing photographer-ever! When I married my husband, neither he nor I had ever been professionally photographed until our wedding day..... we did not do engagement pictures, had never had any family photos done...nothing! Dana worked with us so wonderfully and allowed us to completely reflect on our day- and oh my goodness did she produce our beginning! She worked with us and helped us with our timeline, our picture coordination, and she worked with our videographers as if they were all one team! My husband and I are so thankful to of had such a talented, responsive, and caring photographer on our most important day! Thank you!

Our pictures were seriously amazing. Dana is fabulous. I can't recommend her enough as a photographer for someone's special day. Everything was very laid back and fun but also organized and to the point which was important to me. I didn't want to spend the entire day trying to round up everyone for pictures. She was so easy to work with and everything fell into place. My husband didn't even complain too much (and he hates pictures). She returned our pictures in a timely manner and I had so many compliments. She captured the entire day perfectly from getting ready with my best friends to dancing the night way on the dance floor. I couldn't have asked for someone better to capture our love together. Everything looked so natural! She is also very knowledgable and knew exactly where pictures would turn out with certain light and found secret spots that were absolutely beautiful !

Choosing a photographer is perhaps one of the most important decisions of the wedding planning process. Once I reviewed Dana's portfolio and spoke with her, I knew she was the photographer for me. Her photos are absolutely gorgeous and timeless. I did not want trendy photos, but photos I would love in 50 years, and Dana blew my expectations out of the water. She has a talent for lighting- each photo captures the light beautifully and she seemed to get every moment of the wedding day. We got married during the Nights of Lights in St. Augustine so we wanted some nighttime photos- and WOW! Not many people can create a beautiful photo shoot at night, but Dana certainly did. Aside from her talent, Dana is so sweet and personable- a true pleasure to work with (and that's very important when you are spending 10+hours with a person). Thank you for everything, Dana! We will treasure these photos and memories!

Dana was an absolutely amazing photographer!! No only were her photos stunning, she was so professional. Booking Dana was one of the best choices we made regarding our wedding planning :-)
Kiki · Married on 09/06/2015
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dana and her team. Being from Chicago and having a wedding down in Florida it was a risk hiring vendors and not knowing much about them, but Dana not only met our expectations, she exceed and so much more! Prior to the wedding and in the planning phases, was responsive and super communicative over email, phone and even made the time to meet with us in person on one of our trips to Florida. As for the day of the wedding everything ran so smoothly, she assisted in making the timeline in advance which was a vital piece to the day. She was such a calm and laid back presence the day of the wedding. She was a pleasure to work with, she was quick, efficient and did a great job of not letting the pictures take over the wedding or taking up all the time. We are so appreciative of her sweet personality and wonderful photography skills. We recently received the final photos and they are FANTASTIC, she captured every vital moment along with the small mundane ones which made it all so much more special. She did a great job candidly telling the story of our day through her amazing work. We are so so so happy that we found Dana and would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a fabulous photographer!
