Amazing photographers

My husband and I are SO glad we went with Dutcher Photography for our wedding. From the start, Sam met with us and helped come up with our day-of schedule, and was always so responsive if we ever had questions. Then on the wedding day, her and Rob were fantastic to work with. They were fun, funny, and really efficient, which kept us running on time or even a little bit ahead of schedule. They both have a gift for capturing the perfect candid shots of people laughing and smiling, which was important to us and a big reason we chose them in the first place. By midnight of our wedding day, Sam sent over some sneak peek shots. And then by the Thursday after (literally 5 days after our wedding), we got all of the photos back and they turned out amazing. Pricewise I'd say they came in around average for the Madison area, maybe even a little on the low end given their experience.
Lastly, as a gay couple, having photographers who made us feel comfortable and safe was really important for us, and we couldn't have been more comfortable with Sam and Rob. HIGHLY, highly recommend.

A fantastic experience that enhanced our wedding day

Sam was a joy to work with. For context, my husband and I are both a bit introverted. Sam was so engaging and approachable throughout the process from quote to onsite work to final delivery. At the wedding, I felt like the time for the couples photos really enhanced the day overall. Sam gave great direction, and it was just a quiet break in a bustling day- having fun with my favorite person. Sam did such an amazing job capturing our joy. I cannot help but smile looking at these photos. They are 100% us, so candid, and so beautiful.

A. Maze. Ing. Part of our special day

I can鈥檛 recommend enough!! We would鈥檝e paid twice what we did for the quality of photos and the people taking them. It was really nice to have a supportive calm knowledgeable photographer as a part of our day. Made every single penny worth it and we are SO happy that we had Sam and Dutcher photography as a special addition to our day.

It was a pleasure working with Rob at Samantha of Dutcher Photography at a recent wedding reception. Sam was very fluid with how she blended in with the crowd while taking pictures and always had a smile on her face (she seemed to be digging the music choices too:-). I saw Rob verifying on his phone what shots they still needed. How nice to see him looking at the list to make sure they got the shots they needed. Dutcher Photography was very professional and easy to work with, which really helped the event go off without a hitch!!

Kuhl Entertainment Kuhl Entertainment Wedding DJs

We've had the opportunity to work with Samantha and Rob at Mad Rollin' Dolls bouts the past two seasons as Dutcher Photography does bout photography and we take care of sound production. They are both VERY good at what they do. It's clear that their knack for catching great action shots comes from their core, as they always have a TON of great photos from the roller derby bouts they work at. I look forward to the opportunity to work with them more in the future...maybe even on YOUR dance floor!
