Where are you located?
I am located in the Palm Beaches and serve all of South Florida including the Keys, Miami, Broward, West Palm Beach, Jupiter and the West Coast all the way up to Tampa. I also cover destination weddings in the US and anywhere around the world.
What photographic services do you offer?
My passion is to document all types of weddings, from traditional weddings to elopements. I also specialize in capturing the following wedding-related events:
- Engagement parties
- Engagement sessions
- Bridal showers
- Bachelor/ Bachelorette parties
- Rehearsal dinners
- Bridal boudoirs
- Day-after sessions
- Just married
- Trash the dress
- Vow Renewals
What is your photography style?
All of my work is done in a digital-based media with a mix of photo-journalistic and classic styles. I love to document all the candid moments as they unfold during our sessions: the in-between moments, the laughs, the happy tears and first looks. I also enjoy posing couples and family members for more formal portraits.
Do you photograph all your events?
I absolutely do! When you book your event with Diana Hogan Photography, you are getting all my time and attention. I also collaborate with other photographers with a similar style if a second shooter is requested.
What equipment do you use?
I use Canon camera bodies and a combination of high quality Canon lenses. Canon is a well-recognized brand within the wedding industry that delivers spectacular images. In my photography bag I also carry speed lights, tripods and reflectors to cover all different light scenarios.
What are your packages and fees?
What payment methods do you accept?
I accept checks, cash and PayPal.
How do you deliver images? Are they edited and high resolution?
I deliver all my images via online gallery. With an online gallery you can view, download and print your photos and most importantly, you can share the gallery with family and friends.
ALL of my delivered images are fully edited and in high resolution. Every photo will be edited to ensure the best possible quality. Edits include basic color correction, cropping and minor touch ups.
How many pictures will I receive?
It all depends! Every event is different; therefore the amount of images delivered to my clients depends on the length of the session, how many guests you have, your style, etc. I love to capture as much action as possible and do not limit myself to a specific number. For example, for a full wedding day I typically deliver 500+ photographs, and for an engagement session I typically deliver 50+ photographs.
How soon will I receive my photos?
Turnaround time for wedding photos is approximately 4 weeks and turnaround time for other events is approximately 2 weeks.
Where can I read your reviews?
Please read my reviews on WeddingWire.
How soon should we book you for our wedding?
The sooner the better! I recommend booking me as soon as you have set your wedding date, regardless of how far in the future it might be. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out my Contact page to check my availability.
How do I reserve my wedding date?
Reserving your wedding date is very simple. Please follow these three steps:
- Contact me for availability here. I will follow up with an email and a contract.
- Sign and return the contract to me.
- Submit your retainer payment.
After you have signed the contract and made your retainer payment, you can split the remaining balance as it is most convenient for you, considering that final payment in full must be received at least 7 days before the event day.
Should I book an engagement session?
Engagement sessions are completely optional; however, I highly encourage my couples to consider them for the following reasons:
- They provide the perfect occasion for future brides and grooms to get to know my work style and flow.
- Couples get acquainted with me, which results in them being more comfortable and natural in front of the camera during the big day.
- Couples have the opportunity to display beautiful engagement photos for their save-the-dates, wedding websites and/or wedding reception.
Your engagement session does not have to be expensive. In fact, it may be included in the cost of your wedding photography depending on the package you choose. For general prices, please click here.
When should we do our engagement session?
Again, the sooner the better! If you wish to display your photos at the wedding reception, please book the engagement session no less than six weeks before the big day.
Do you have any general recommendations for hair/make up, wardrobe and location?
I want my couples to feel comfortable during their engagement session, but most importantly, I want them to look good and show their personal style. Hiring a professional hair and make-up artist gives you the opportunity to try your wedding day look before the big day. If you decide to go the do-it-yourself route, use a bit more foundation than normal and highlight your best facial features.
Choosing a wardrobe that represents you as a couple and your relationship is key to creating unique images. I typically recommend a formal and a casual look. When selecting your outfits, think of pieces that complement each other rather than focusing on matching them. Always keep in mind the weather, the location and the look you want to create.
Depending on your style, my team has recommended locations for your photo-shoot. I am also open to your own ideas and preferences. Some of my favorite locations around South Florida are:
