Dan Doke Photography captured every moment I could have ever wanted from our wedding. Dan and his team went over and above, from arriving in Charleston early to capture the rehearsal dinner and welcome reception, to dedicating the entire wedding day to being with us. He knows exactly how to direct his subjects and draws smiles out of even the most fidgety toddler. He frames his pictures flawlessly and because of his talent, I will always be able to look back at our wedding day and relive the beautiful memories. Out of thousands of photos, I don't know how I will ever narrow down my favorites, because they are all really that good. Dan Doke is hands down the best wedding photographer we could have ever hired."
Brooke & Matt Furtick, Married April 2017 in Charleston, SC
"You single handedly made my wedding day amazing!!!!!!!!!! Everyone is talking about how awesome you were with that laugh and the especially the kids. But from the bottom of my heart I thank you for being amazing at your art! Such talent."
“OMG Dan!! I’m crying right now. These are so gorgeous!! Mine and Barry’s mouths literally just fell to the floor!!! Thank you, thank you. You are amazing. We had so much fun. I’m seriously crying right now I can not believe it. We can’t wait to see the rest. This was the perfect gift you sent us before we head to the airport. You are so awesome!”
“I would highly recommend to anyone getting married to use a photographer from Dan Doke Photography! I was honored to have Paul and Dan capture my wedding day! They were professional, accommodating, and such a pleasure to have around us that day! They had the best positive energy that eased my nerves and jitters!
The wedding day passed by so fast, it quickly became a blur…but we received an email while we were on our honeymoon of teasers from the big day! Such a pleasant surprise that I did not expect to have so quickly!!
I can’t wait to see them all!”
“Dan was an absolutely amazing photographer. This guy definitely knows what he’s doing. My pictures were of the utmost importance for me, as it was the only living memory we would have of the day. He really made it worth it. From the second he showed up at the house, he just started clicking. I was nervous that it was going to be very posey, which is what I didn’t want… but he did a lot of candids, and only some poses. He also was never in the way while we were getting ready, and just took pictures. He didn’t keep saying “ok, what do you want to do now”… thats not what I wanted. I had enough to worry about! He even stayed an extra half an hour to make sure we got pictures with my husbands grandmother, who left the church early by accident when we were taking family photos. I will say that we got Dan through the Winter Wonderland package at Promises to Keep, so I am not positive how much he charges for his normal rate…. but this guys is so good, you can’t put a price on it!”
“Dan not only focused on the people at our wedding but all of the details. He captured every aspect of our day. He was extremely easy to work with and kept everything moving quickly. I would not have changed one thing.”
“Can’t thank you enough for being such a viable part of our wedding. I could not of been happier at the wedding and the way things went. So excited to see the pictures. So excited to have had the best photographer in Boston and in all of New England capturing our memories.”
“Dear Dan, Choosing the right wedding photographer was such a critical decision for us because these are images that’ll last for decades and we knew there would be only one chance to get it right, one chance to creatively capture the essence and excitement of our special day. During our search, we saw a lot of good work that would have served us well, but nothing extraordinary. We wanted a finished product that would take our wedding album to the next level. That’s where you came in.
To say our confidence in you was rewarded would be quite the understatement. We were thrilled with what you captured during our milestone moment – the pictures seemed to jump off the page in their creativity and vibrancy. From the tender and touching moments to the money shots, your journalistic style captured them all while incorporating an artistic touch that sets your work apart. Trust us when we say it was difficult whittling down our selections for the album.
And working with you Dan was an absolute pleasure – your immense talent and easy going temperament meant an enjoyable experience that was stress free. Thank-you for helping preserve a day we’ll never forget.” All the best,
-Sean and Vivian
“We got special permits from the Preservation Society to go out during the day to several mansions and gardens to do a bride and groom photoshoot. Dan was so much fun to work with and found such creative angles and lighting for our pictures. Since we did this during the day, at the actual wedding all that had to be done is family and party portraits and we had the night to enjoy our wedding instead of worrying about the perfect bride/groom portrait.”
“Dan Doke is amazing. He is nice, talented and his work will do you in. Choosing Dan was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. After all, when it is all over, you only have the pictures left. I would highly recommend him. Dan is a bit pricey, but worth every penny.”
