    Outstanding!

    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!!!

    We are super happy that you love your images. You both look so happy and they came out amazing! It's been a pleasure planning and celebrating your special day with you and your husband. We can't wait for you day next year as well!! :)

    Best,
