Dozier made our day
Devin & Donna from Dozier Design Photography are MUST-HAVEs for any wedding, at any location!!Sent on 11/09/2018
My review is based on 3 critical areas concerning a wedding and the needs of the bridal couple:
It’s usually undervalued, but I cannot stress enough how important it is to have a great team on your side on the day of the wedding. As much planning and thought is given ahead of time, something will go unexpected or some issue will arise and you want to have a strong people around you that will be flexible, have a great attitude, support you and really champion for your day to be amazing.
We were having a beach ceremony with an outdoor reception overlooking the ocean. The weather was a 40% chance that it may rain and the resort starting pressuring us to move the wedding indoors into a dingy hall they had. Otherwise, they said, the wedding would be cancelled completely.
I was devastated to hear that – considering we had family members that this was their first experience traveling and so many came from far to celebrate with us.
When I saw Devin and Donna shortly after, they encouraged me to fight for what we wanted it and not let the resort pressure us. We did exactly that. My now-husband fought with the resort manager who refused to let us use the outdoor venue we had reserved and we were able to have our event [no rain] as imagined.
Thanks to Devin & Donna’s emotional support, understanding, and their flexibility to work with us, given the delays we had, in order to have an amazing outdoor wedding ceremony and reception and capture all the moments we wanted to preserve.
Quality of Work:
I am based in the Washington DC area and had a Destination Wedding in Mexico. As I was doing wedding research, I came across a wedding video that absolutely struck me and even made me cry of how amazing it was and how much emotion and happiness was captured through a series of photos. I had to research who created that video – and that’s how I found Devin and Donna.
For our wedding, the photos were unbelievably beautiful. While they did the ‘family posed shots’, Devin and Donna were exceptional at taking candid shots that helped to really capture the moments and feelings of that day.
The photos were very high quality, easy to share, and we looked amazing in it. None of that “extra 10 lbs from the camera” look.
Not only that – the beach had a lot of seaweed and Devin and Donna were so meticulous to even have the seaweed magically removed from the photos for the ultimate beach wedding shots.
I reached out to Dozier Design Photography and within the same day I received a response from Devin. He has been extremely great to work with from the very beginning. He was very thorough in regards to package options, forms of payment was very easy, and the contract was straightforward.
At all turns, Devin was very responsive to my emails and always extremely pleasant. They delivered the photos within the time specified and was even generous to send a few ‘preview’ photos to calm this newly wed which I ended up using as part of our Thank You cards to guests.
I especially loved their attitude. They had an amazing attitude the entire time and are just amazing people - period!
In a nutshell…
Devin & Donna made the difference in us having an amazing wedding and they beautifully captured all the special moments to help us preserve that day.
We highly recommend Devin & Donna. They should be your go-to photographers for your wedding and/or any occasion needed.
We loved them so much we will book them for all future major photo needs.

Devin is incredibly professional, reliable, and quick to respond to any questions. He was able to capture beautiful images without being intrusive to our wedding experience. He managed to get every shot on our “shot list”. He is extremely fairly priced for the quality of services that you received. We couldn’t have dreamed of a better photographer for our Big Day.Sent on 05/13/2018

I cannot say enough good things about Devin and Donna. It was so much fun to work with them on our engagement pictures and then our wedding. We will definitely call you in the future for pictures.Sent on 05/03/2016

Devin and Donna were fantastic photographers for our wedding in April 2016! They did our engagement shots, too, which also came out great. In addition to being talented photographers, they are so sweet; it was like having two more friends at our wedding rather than a vendor. The wedding photos came out beautifully and I can't recommend them highly enough.Sent on 05/08/2016
