Short Review: If I could give Delaney ten stars, I would! You should stop your search now because she is absolutely the best wedding photographer anybody could ask for!
Long Review: For me, photos and video of my wedding was one of the most i...
mportant parts of the day for me. I looked through probably 30-40 photographers for my Philadelphia wedding (from Boston down to D.C.). I first narrowed down photographers based on their reviews, then by the look of their photos (not just on sites like The Knot/Wedding Wire but on their websites). I ended up writing a few emails and finally making 3-4 phone appointments with photographers I thought fit the style I had and the budget that I wanted. Delaney was the sweetest and most personable photographer I spoke with! She really sounded like she was invested in what I wanted my wedding photos to look like and really got to know myself and my fiance (as much as you can in 30-45 min phone call). As soon as I got off the phone, I knew she was the one!
From a style standpoint, I love that her photos are so bright and happy. They really make you feel like you're looking back on a dream. When she asked me to use one word to describe my wedding, I said "ethereal" and boy did she deliver.
From a service standpoint, Delaney was so accommodating and flexible! She tailored her wedding package to exactly what we wanted, and was flexible enough to make changes even up to the month before the wedding! The day after our wedding, we already had a handful of preview photos! A couple weeks later, we saw more photos that were posted on her blog! Before it was a month out, I already had all of my digital photos. I couldn't believe it! She was super communicative the whole time. She didn't push selling wedding albums although she does provide that service if you want to order through her!
We spoke on the phone/via email probably the most out of all of my vendors. On my wedding day, once we met it felt like I'd already known her! It made it so much easier to pose naturally in front of her. She and her assistants made us feel so at ease, our photos turned out great! She gave us just enough direction to get some great angles/shots, but made us feel comfortable enough to be ourselves. Multiple people in our bridal party mentioned how easy it was to work with her whole team! Throughout the day, we were pulled all over the place, but she made sure she reminded us when we needed to take sunset photos, cake-cutting, private reception photos, etc. all the while capturing all the guests throughout cocktail hour and reception. It was like she and her team were everywhere at once!
Our wedding was beautiful and one of the happiest days of our life. I could not imagine having anyone else but Delaney Dobson capture those moments for us.
