Craig David Butler Studios provided our wedding photography and video. We could not be happier with the whole experience. Craig and his staff were professional and artistic, but also made everyone feel comfortable enough to just enjoy the moments with no concern about needing to direct them or take our own photos "just in case." Though the prices were higher than we wanted to spend, the resulting memories and feeling captured are priceless, and we feel it was money well spent! Thank you, Craig and team! :)
Words cannot describe how happy I am with our photography and videography services from CDB! Hands down most talented I've ever seen and worked with. You can tell that he has a passion for what he does and the moments he captures are timeless! Every single person at our wedding was so impressed by the same day edit videography "highlight reels" that was played right then and there at our reception! I can't say enough positive feedback on the experience we've had with CDB, I recommend him to everyone I know!
Craig was wonderful! He captured every moment of our wedding so beautifully. We will definately recommend him in the future!
I would HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend Craig. If there is one vendor that you have to have as a bride... it is him. His style of capturing your wedding day is absolutely breathtaking. The creativity and thought he puts into capturing the moments make you feel the actual emotions that are happening in the picture. Craig, Allyson and Matt are who worked our wedding. Their personalities helped make the day fun, silly, and organized. I remember anytime they pulled me aside for pictures throughout the day... it was a breath of fresh air and calmness between all the wedding day chaos. They kept everything running smoothly and made everyone in the wedding party feel extremely comfortable. I can't say enough fabulous things about Craig and his team. BOOK THEM NOW!!! If you want anyone to capture the most special day of your life... it's him!
Craig and his wonderful daughter showed up on time and ready to go. During the planning process he was always quick to respond and help with any questions or ideas I had. I just saw the first of my pictures and can not be happier. I am a plus size girl and was very worried I would hate all my pictures.. He was able to capture in ways that make me look and feel beautiful.. Thank you CRAIG!!!!
I highly recommend the day-of video! It made the night!
An absolute joy to work with! Craig was truly a delight to work with and the photos were amazing. The day of wedding video is a must! I wasn't sure I wanted it, but it was by far one of my favorite things. Excellent!
When my now husband and I were planning our wedding there were a few things we wanted to splurge on. Food was one. Flowers were another. But we both knew that we were not the wedding video type couple so we wanted excellent photos. We interviewed several photographers and while they were all really nice something wasn't thrilling us. We were referred to Craig by my husband's mother, he had done his sister's wedding so we decided to contact him and see.
Craig made us feel immediately at ease. We met at his studio in Northville and the sample photos he had hanging were beautiful. He took us through a few weddings he had done, we were blown away. After we left we knew there was no way we could go any other route.
We are so happy with our photos, what Craig provides is more than just photography, when he's finished its work of art.
I will be honest, he charges a bit more than other photographers out there but his talent is worth the extra cost. Your wedding photos are your memories, they last you a lifetime and we wanted to have something we were proud to show and look back on and remember how good we felt (and how good we looked ;) ). If I had to do it all again I would pick Craig every single time.
He's awesome, go hire him!
Craig and Bonnie wonderful at what they do. They capture truly amazing photos and video. They capture all the moments that you want to remember for a lifetime.
We were blown away by our Same Day Edit, and so were our guests. It was amazing seeing parts of our day for the first time with all of our family and friends. Then to be able to share this with people who were not able to be there is a great bonus.
We just had our album review and were once again amazed at how our day was captured and displayed. We can't wait to get our album!
Hands down Bonnie and Craig are the best at what they do - if you select them as your photographer and videographer, you will be thrilled with your images!!
I would not suggest using this company unless you want to pay over $5,000 on pictures with NO DIGITAL copies, a contract that doesn't get you a copy right release form of pictures of you that you paid for, but with "small" additional fee of $900 (after the fact) you can get them copied onto a disk. But instead get a useless proof book. Don't waste your money because of the simulated glitz and glamour at the first meeting! Will be misinformed and milked for money! $$$$! Do your research! Sad day when you go to FedEx to print an 18x24 picture, because to don't want to pay an additional $120 to order from company and they ask for a copy right form that you didn't even know you needed or even had to have! Once you pay; copy right should be released?!?! At least with most photographers. Can't hang a proof book, put it's photos on Facebook, or sent pictures to family now can you?
Craig and Bonnie are wonderful. The pictures that they take are wonderful. The Same Day Edit that was shwon at our reception was wonderful. Everyone commented on how great it was and how fast Craig was able to put it together. I highly recommend Craig and Bonnie for your wedding pictures.
Craig and Bonnie are wonderful to work with! Our same-day edit wedding video was completely priceless and so moving! Also the photos they took were great--Craig really knows how to capture a bride's beauty. My husband and our families were very pleased with our overall experience and would recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding and beyond! PS. Check out their photo booth for a fun favor for your guests!
Craig and Bonnie were amazing to work with and their work was incredible:) Great people and a fantastic job on our big day! Thank you so much you two!!!!
The photo booth was awesome, our guests had so much fun. The most incredible thing of the evening was the same day edit of our wedding being played at the reception. The photos are amazing.
I saw Craig's work a few years ago at a bridal show and was stunned by how gorgeous and creative the photos were. In addition, he was so friendly and approachable and that stuck with me.
When it was time to select a photographer for my wedding, he immediatley came to mind. I checked out his work and, once again, found it breatakingly beautiful. However, as a researcher by profession, I spent countless hours investigating other photograhers in the area.
Needless to say, none of them compared to the quality of Craig's work. Although he is pricey compared to some new photographer start-ups, it's due to the equipment, time and care he takes and the overall quality and experience of what you're getting. Craig David Butler studios is worth the money.
In addition to the most beautiful photos ever, he also produces a same day edit which is displayed at the wedding reception. This features photos and video captured earlier in the wedding day that he amazingly assembles and puts to music during dinner! It is unreal and beyond compare! Your wedding guests will LOVE it and rave about it. Check out my video here for an example: http://cdbsi.net/2010/06/19/plymouth-michigan-wedding-photography-michelle-dave/
Overall, my husband and I couldn't belive how wonderful our video is! We could not be more pleased with his work. He perfectly captured the special moments and all the emotions of the most important day of our lives. In addition to his creative talent and extraordinary photos and video, both Craig and his wife, Bonnie, were a pleasure to work with and helpful professionals every step of the way!
The pictures came out great, and we were both impressed. Was well worth the money we put in, great service and quality.
