Why hello there!
Hi! I'm Faith! I've been a wedding & portrait photographer in my hometown of Newport, RI for 10 years now. Before opening my business, I graduated from the intense program at the Hallmark Institute of Photography. I've won bunches of awards, including Newport Life Magazine's "Photographer of the Year" in 2011, and numerous Bride's Choice Awards from The Knot and WeddingWire. My images have been featured in Southern New England Wedding Magazine, Newport Wedding Magazine, Simply Chic Weddings, Bride & Groom Magazine and more.
I simply love weddings and always have. I love everything about them. The energy, the beauty, the special moments, the interaction between you and all the special people in your life. Being a photographer has given me a front row ticket to experiences and events I would have never seen otherwise. I love experiencing various cultures, religions and heritages through my lens. Photography has always provided me with a adrenaline rush that pushes me to create and explore. No matter what is going on in the world, when I arrive on site to photograph your wedding, I'm 1000% invested.
Jefferson joined Faith Dugan Photography in 2010, shortly after we got engaged. Becoming a husband & wife wedding photography team has really brought a special dynamic to my work. I have a partner, a "battle-buddy" and an entertainer. Jefferson is way funnier then I am and he'll keep you laughing all day long! Plus, he takes amazing pictures. I always wanted to clone myself at a wedding to get those extra pictures I can't capture while acting as the primary photographer. Having Jefferson photographing with me is the next best thing. After the wedding, we drive home together and talk about all your friend's crazy dance moves. We are so excited to get in, download your pictures and see all the art we created that day. The images of the day start to unfold into a story. A story that we just shared together, written through the art of photography. A story that you will have for a lifetime.
When we aren't shooting weddings, we enjoy spending time with our families, friends and our rescue dogs: Jax & Gracie Belle. (GracieB is also known as #fuzzybutt if you follow me on Instagram.) We also love being outdoors, travel, food and wine, gardening and home improvement projects. (Meaning I sit back, scroll through Pinterest and drink a lot of tea while Jeff works on the house)
