Erin and Peter of Daphne and Dean Photography are AMAZING! We are obsessed with our wedding photos! They made us feel so comfortable and relaxed, and captured so many moments of us just having fun. Their style is spot on with what we wanted - natural light, in the moment, focusing on the love between two people, rather than posed shots. We highly recommend this team! Their love for each other definitely shows through in their work. They looked like they were having just as much fun working together as we did at our wedding.

Erin and Peter of Daphne and Dean Photography not only did an amazing job photographing our wedding but they were also a pure joy to work with. As a DIY bride, I was slightly over-stressed on my wedding day. However, Erin and Peter were so incredibly kind and relaxed that they immediately put me at ease and made the photography portions of my wedding some of my favorite moments of the night. I am truly grateful that I chose Erin and Peter as our photographers because I get to relive my wedding through their stunning photography forever!

From the moment we saw the work of Daphne and Dean Photography online, to the minute we met Erin and Peter, we knew it was a perfect fit. We wanted photography that captured US and our moments, and not just pictures. Not only did we instantly feel at home in their company, but we immediately knew that they "got it." They understood our vision and our priorities, and we felt totally confident in their work. When our big day came, even our families were impressed at how discreet, kind, and professional they were. They instinctually knew which shots were important to us, and we couldn't be more impressed with the final results. We were so pleased with them, and we would 100% recommend them to friends and family.

We couldn’t be happier that we chose Daphne and Dean as our wedding photographers. They went above and beyond anything we ever expected. Erin and Peter have an incredible vision and they truly know how to capture all the perfect moments, not to mention they are both lovely people! We had so much fun just hanging out with them. Their individual skills complement each other so well, and they work together as a team seamlessly. I am not from the area where we got married in CT, and they were so accommodating, even traveling to NYC where we live for our engagement session. They were quick to answer all of my questions and were always willing to work with us for our needs – they even helped me find vintage doors to use for our ceremony! Thanks to Daphne and Dean we have GORGEOUS photos so we will always be able to look back and remember our very special day.

Erin and Peter have somehow managed to balance just the right amount of professionalism, while still being down to earth and fun and making you feel super comfortable. We had a large, semi unruly wedding party and they never seemed put out or bothered by it, they just went about their business and were absolutely lovely the entire time! Our pictures came out beautifully! I cannot recommend them enough.

We heard of Daphne & Dean through my sister-in-law, who is using D & D in September. Upon looking at some of their photos, we decided to use them as our wedding photographers, and we are so happy we did! Upon meeting Erin & Peter (the owners and photographers), we knew they were the right fit. They were professional, friendly, and quickly understood the type of photography/photographs we were looking for (and, bonus, their marketing materials were so cute and very much my style).

My husband is not someone who enjoys having his picture taken, and, knowing that, Peter managed to capture a lot of great shots without bothering him at all. Meanwhile, Erin was in the background while the girls got ready and got tons of candids that I was really happy with. At the ceremony and reception they were present, but not overbearing, which everyone enjoyed. They were super efficient. We ended up with so many amazing photos, all of which we were able to look through on a well-organized, user-friendly webpage that they emailed to us as soon as the photos were ready.

Overall, we were very happy with out decision to use Daphne & Dean as our photographers for our wedding. We have gotten so many compliments on how great our pictures were, and I would 100% recommend Daphne & Dean to anyone!!

Erin and Peter are amazing!!! They are both incredibly talented, have great ideas, and make you feel totally comfortable when being photographed. I found them on wedding wire and after checking out their website and blog I was hooked - I was not disappointed. Their style was exactly what I wanted. The pictures were genuine and light and just make me happy. They did a fantastic job making me and Sam feel comfortable. At the wedding they worked so quickly! We were able to spend lots of time with our friends and family and know that the pictures would turn out great. Definitely would recommend them to any brides-to-be!

I wish we could find the perfect way to express in words here our satisfaction with Daphne and Dean photography. I'm afraid words are not going to do it justice. Working with these two amazingly talented and generously kind natured people has been one of the highlights of our wedding process. So many aspects of the the planning of a wedding can be stressful and at times just not very fun. But Daphne and Dean had a natural knack of making us feel comfortable and even ENJOY (yes, I said enjoy) our time with them. I was so anxious ahead of time, but found myself feeling so relaxed and at ease by their presence and interaction with us. It's one thing to be a photographer and to provide a service....literally, just provide a service. For some people, actually lots of people, that may be enough. But Daphne and Dean go above and beyond just providing a service....they provide an experience. One that truly enriched our wedding journey. It was so important to me from the start that we find a photographer that had the ability to be cutting edge and provide us with a unique look. I had looked over portfolio after portfolio online and spent hours and hours doing so before finding them. We could not be happier with the look and style they provided! Not any cookie cutter photography here. So if you are looking for an enjoyable, stress free experience as well as unique, high quality work...then you have found the right place with Daphne and Dean. Although I'm sure that "thank you" is a phrase they hear very often, we'd like to say it again here and let them know how very much we appreciated all their efforts and dedicated work.

I can't rave enough about these photographers. I am so the thrilled with what they produced! The pictures we have are beautiful reminders of the most romantic, full-of-love day we've ever had. They were discreet while getting every important shot. They spent a large amount of time with us. The value for the product and service we got was more than I could have hoped for. I couldn't wait to give them a great review and recommend them to people!
