We HIGHLY recommend Dean Michaels studio!!! We had a wonderful experience from A to Z working with them as our wedding photographers/videographers. It felt right from the moment I walked through the doors of their Madison studio to meet with Christin for the first time. This was so important to us because we know the pictures and videos will be the one thing that last forever after our big day. Wedding photographers and videographers are a dime a dozen, so having that initial sense of trust, high quality work, and ease was important. They answered all my questions, were always prompt with any questions I had through email or over the phone, they included everything we wanted in a reasonably priced package, and most importantly, we LOVED our photographers/videographers that were with us from our engagement shoot to the end of the wedding day. Laura and Dean were PHENOMENAL to work with. They didnt skip a beat throughout the entire day, and gave us beautiful pics and a wedding video we will cherish for the rest of our lives!!!! Our wedding guests kept commenting how amazing they were as well! Thank you Dean Michaels!!!! Your reputation says it all!!! We are so lucky you were a part of our special day.Sent on 05/25/2019

I cannot recommend this studio enough! We had rich for our photographer for our micro wedding and OMG he is AMAZING! So easy to work with, very talented and put my vision to life. As if trying to get married during a pandemic isn't enough, dealing with predicted terrible weather we had in the forecast, rich was able to adjust his schedule to make sure he can be there for the following day. We cannot thank Rich & Dean Michaels enough for being the easiest venders around. Can't wait until next year, for the "bigger" day!!!Sent on 09/24/2020
