Faith is AMAZING to work with. My Fiance and I did our engagement session with her and loved every one of our photos. We really wanted to capture all of our favorite locations in Newport. We started off at Zelda's (where we first met), NYYC Harbour Court (our first official date), and ended the day out on our boat (where we got engaged). Faith was completely up for ALL of this. Actually, we were the ones telling her we had to go in before we missed the launch boat back to shore! She has an incredible eye for natural lighting and capturing the perfect shot. She was also a complete pleasure to work with and made us both feel comfortable in front of the camera. Not only did I walk away with great photos, but also with a new friend! When it came time to selecting my wedding day photographer (which would have been Faith if we weren't getting married in Virginia) I went to Faith for her advice to help narrow down my options. I would highly recommend Faith Dugan photography to ANY bride out there!

Faith is AMAZING! She was one of the first vendors that we booked, I knew right from our first meeting that she was the photographer for me. Her work speaks for itself, it's beautiful!!! One thing that really impressed me besides her pictures was the way she and Jefferson ran the show on the wedding day. They managed to organize my loud and controlling family so naturally. Our formal shots with our family and wedding party ran smoothly and took way less time than I was expecting. They memorized everyone's names in our families and wedding party. It made everyone feel very comfortable and I think it showed in our pictures. They captured every moment of our wedding day whether we realized they were there or not. I would highly recommend booking Faith!!!

Being from New York and planning a wedding in Rhode Island was not an easy task. The search for the right vendors, particularly a photographer was difficult. Faith was recommended to me by a friend who got married in Newport a few years ago. From the moment we spoke on the phone I knew she was the perfect fit for us. She is sweet, kind, friendly, easy going and EXTREMELY knowledgeable. Faith has a variety of packages which works for couples who are on a budget, but also has a lot to offer for those looking for extras. Throughout the whole planning process Faith was a quick email away for any questions I had (even non-photography related). She was prompt and thorough with her responses and always flexible in arranging meetings during our visits to Rhode Island. She had so many good ideas and pointers for us, especially a suggestion on a place to rent to take pictures beforehand in case of rain (which came in handy because it POURED). On the day of our wedding, I couldn't have been more happy with our decision. Faith and Jefferson were AMAZING, they had such a calm demeanor and made us feel at ease. It felt like we had two friends taking pictures of us. We felt so comfortable around them and hardly noticed they were there yet they managed to capture so many special moments of the day! We were thrilled with how our pictures came out. Our family and friends still rave about how sweet and awesome they both were. Having Faith as our photographer was hands down the BEST decision we made for our wedding, I could not imagine having anyone else. Working with her might be the only thing I miss from the wedding planning process. I cannot say enough great things about her!!!

I do not have enough words to say about how wonderful it was to work with Faith for my wedding photography. We booked Faith for our engagement pictures and wedding after visiting her adorable studio in Newport and falling completely in love with her work. I loved the journalistic style of her photos and her creativity is above and beyond I would have expected. My wedding photos are GORGEOUS. I cannot decide which I want to put onto a canvas print, all of which conveniently Faith can do! She captured every moment of my big day and my friends and family loved working with her. She made the portrait process effortless and the reults are beyond all I was expecting. I felt like more than a customer to Faith, throughout the day, I felt like she was friend who was so genuinely happy for me, my husband and family. Thank you Faith for your hard work and amazing talent. I could not have been any happier with the results. I will most definitely be visiting Faith again for any other photographer services I will need. ~ Megan Dias

We were referred to Faith Dugan Photography by a friend and we would absolutely recommend Faith to any other engaged couple! Faith is professional, smart and enthusiastic. Her work speaks for itself in how much creativity and effort she puts into each and every wedding. We liked how she took our request for 'photos with an ocean backdrop' and gave us a few options to choose from. She then scouted out these locations a few days before our big day to ensure the spot was still perfect (no debris, flowers in bloom, etc).
On our wedding day, we learned that the photographer becomes the quarterback for the day..Faith and Jefferson were natural QBs! They coordinated with our hotel to have the vehicle ready to go out front when we needed to leave. They coordinated with our officiant to get the right ceremony shots. They staged the cake cutting at the reception. They were positioned near the dance floor to get all the 'action shots' once the music kicked up. Faith even helped me cut a piece of crinolin (sp?) that ripped on the bottom of my dress.
Faith Dugan Photograph exceeded our expectations! She captured our wedding day beautifully and we greatly enjoyed working with her and Jefferson.

From start to finish, our experience working with Faith was superb. What sold us originally was her photo-journalistic style and how she sets out to create the story of a wedding day. I also appreciated some of the creative ways she experimented with typically cliched shots of rings, dresses, etc.

The actual event was no less wonderful. Working as a team with her husband, Jefferson (who my husband and his groomsmen especially liked), Faith captured every detail and shot we wanted and made it happen in an unobtrusive manner.

Finally, putting together our album after the fact was a breeze, with Faith going the extra mile to make sure we were happy with each step of the process (as we live in New York and were doing everything over email). I highly recommend her for your wedding plans!

We hired Faith for our engagement photos and our wedding day. We were absolutely blown away by her talent and ability to make us feel comfortable. For our engagement session she was even able to capture our lovable ( but very energetic) dog in great photos. Faith listened to our needs and wants and was able to accommodate us in every way. Her husband was our second photographer and was as friendly and helped capture all the little moments. Countless guests commented on Faith's talent and how easy she was to talk to. Efficiency was important to us and Faith was able to organize our group quickly and still manage to catch amazing shots that we will cherish forever. You are very fortunate if you have Faith as a photographer for your wedding day.

Faith was amazing. From the first time I saw her pictures I knew that I wanted to work with her for our wedding. Her artistry and creativity were unmatched by any of the other photographers that we met with or looked at online. I wanted our pictures to be less of the formal and more of the imaginative- and that's exactly what Faith did! Her preparation beforehand in her paperwork and in her meetings with us really gave her a chance to read my husband and I so on the wedding day she knew exactly what we wanted and everything ran more than smooth!! Besides being a extremely talented artist, Faith is also a great person! We couldn't have asked for more from her, and our pictures look like they belong in a magazine! I still can't believe it's us in some of them!! She is wonderful.

Faith Dugan Photography is absolutely amazing! Faith is wonderful to work with and I would highly recommend her to any bride looking for truly exceptional photography. She is passionate about photography and it comes across in her work. Not only did she make us feel completely comfortable in front of the camera, but her stories kept us laughing all day. Faith takes plenty of pictures in different locations so you end up with a great variety of photographs and she keeps shooting until she captures the perfect photo. We just received our wedding photos and I honestly love every single one! Faith is professional, genuine, and a pleasure to be around. We could not be happier having chose Faith as our wedding photographer!

After I got engaged, booking Faith was the very first thing I did. I didn't even have a venue yet, but I knew that wherever I decided to get married, Faith Dugan needed to be there to photograph it. I fell in love with her beautiful, natural style of shooting and felt very validated in my decision when she was voted the Best Wedding Photographer in Newport by Newport Life Magazine.

Faith shot both my engagement photos and my wedding and I was completely impressed with both experiences. She is obviously ridiculously talented, but it's more than that - she is a good person! She is this tiny ball of personality and has a way of making you feel so comfortable while she takes photos. She managed to wrangle my large, loud family and wedding party for formal photos and did so quickly and with class. During the wedding ceremony and reception, I barely knew she was there...but when I saw my photos, I could not believe the amazing moments she captured.

I really can't say enough about how happy I was with Faith's services. She's worth every penny and you will not be disappointed!

She was early to my wedding and stayed till the very end! I must emailed about 50 times during the span of booking her till my wedding and she was such a wonderful resource. She helped me find my florist and videographer. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer.

When we walked out of our first meeting with Faith-we knew she was our photographer. She has an elegance that transfers to every picture she takes. Her photos tell a story and as we are able to relive our wedding day through our photos, we realize even more how amazing she is. I would recommend her to anyone (and have). The price may seem high but she is worth it. Also, since she is a Newport based vendor (grew up there too!)-she knows all the "spots" for your engagement session and if your wedding is in Newport also-for your wedding day also. She is passionate and made us feel as though we were the most important client-and makes everyone feel amazing. From the first meeting and every moment after, she is professional and spectacular.

I have not seen too many pictures yet (just the teasers) but her work is absolutely stunning. She is highly talented and at such a young age. She has a very fresh, photojournalistic and artistic style. I am a designer so I was highly critical of who we chose as a photographer. Unfortunately, the type of photographer I usually like is way out of my price range. Finally I stumbled upon Faith (from the recommendation another photographer) and I was elated to find out how reasonable her prices were. She also offered full day service unlike other photographers who had time limits. She is providing us with a disc of photos which is perfect for us since I feel comfortable retouching photos and designing the album myself. If you do not wish to do this, her photoshop skills are excellent. Alot of photographer go overboard with photoshop or over retouch photos. If I wasn't cheap, I would definitely have her retouch mine!

I was also very impressed at how well she handled a large crowd. She was very adept at crowd control at the church when we were trying to squeeze in a few shots of DH and I at the end of the ceremony. We were surrounded by all of our guests since there was a hurricane (!!) outside. She calmed our very large bridal party when we were trying to take a few pictures outside during the rain (again, hurricane). Our original plan was to take photos outside (hurricane!!), but we ended up taking them at the Crowne Plaza instead (our reception site). This was something I was originally really worried about. Now, I am not in the least bit disappointed. She managed to find some great angles in seemingly ordinary spaces. If you have a talented photographer, the photo locations do not matter.

I cannot recommend her enough!!

I can not begin to say how awesome Faith really is. First of all - her work is absolutely gorgeous. From the first time I contacted Faith, she was extremely responsive and helpful - even when I wasn't asking questions about photography!!! She knows the wedding scene and Newport so well - she was really an invaluable tool for us during our preparation - especially since we were planning from hours away. The first time we saw Faith, she was at the location of our venue shooting another wedding and was highly recommended by the catering manager I was working with. I have recently dove into the field of event photography myself, and have been an avid hobbiest for over 10 years - so I didn't think I would ever be able to make a final decision!!!Once we started doing our research and checking out her website, as well as many others in the area, we fell in love with her documentary and detail orientated style and the decision wasn't nearly as hard as I anticipated. Her prices are amazingly fair compared to her quality of work - We knew we wanted Faith at our wedding!!!
When we actually got the chance to meet with Faith at her studio - it was totally a done deal. Besides the amazing prints and albums that she had to show us, her personality just clicked perfectly with ours!!! I don't think we ever stopped laughing while we were shooting with her, during our engagement session or on our big day. She really helped us create not only gorgeous images, but wonderful memories to last a lifetime!! We had so much fun at our shoots - we plan on continuing have her document our big life events yet to come. We feel extremely fortunate to have been able to have Faith be a part of our day!!!

I'd like to start by saying that I was the type of bride who did her research. I spent countless hours reading reviews and meeting with potential vendors, so I'm definitely aware of the sheer number of RI photographers in the business; however, very few are as talented as Faith. The second we met Faith, everything clicked. We loved her energy, passion, fun spirit, and the incredible examples of work that she shared with us during our meeting. Leading up to the big day, she was a great resource of information for all things related to wedding planning. In fact, if it weren't for her, I wouldn't have reserved Ochre Court for pictures, which was a huge lifesaver since a tropical storm decided to show up on our wedding day! The tropical storm definitely washed out our potential ocean shots along the Drive and beach ceremony, but she has been so incredibly kind to offer us a sunny day re-shoot. If that's not a stellar example of her flexibility and passion for her job, I don't know what is! She's outgoing and fun, but at the same time, she is very professional and was able to keep both of our loud families under control to get the best formals possible. Her responses to phone calls and emails were very quick and detailed. Her prices are more than reasonable especially knowing the rates that other photographers charge who aren't comparable to her talent-wise. Her work speaks for itself, but I hope my review helps you make the right decision: to hire Faith. I think the fact that we didn't need to hire a videographer to capture every moment of our wedding day indicates the kind of job Faith does. She documented our wedding day beautifully, and I know that we couldn't have done it without her!

Weddings can be stressful for those of us who have never been married before. Faith's professionalism and talent made it very easy on me and my wife. Faith was sensitive to the stresses of the day, taking priceless photograph after priceless photograph without being imposing. She captured the entire day, giving us a very in the events we (my wife and I) missed is the rush of the day. She took shots of our friends and family that we will hold onto forever.

Faith has "the eye". People can learn photography, but few have the instinct Faith displays. She takes shots we would never think of, and they are beautiful.

Faith has the talent to take great pictures you'll hold onto forever, but she has the sensibility to allow you and your family/friends to enjoy the entire day.

Faith put icing on the cake as she sent our photos to us in a nice wooden box with a cool wooden USB.

I would recommend Faith Dugan Photography to anyone I know. We will share her photographs with everyone we know. She captured the day perfectly.
