    Wonderful Experience

    My fiancé and I just booked with Dean Michaels Studio for our wedding and we could not be more happy with our experience so far!! It took us a long time to find a photographer that we loved. I spent a lot of time on the phone speaking with different vendors and Christin from Dean Michaels Studio was amazing from the start. She worked with us in creating the perfect package and made sure we got exactly what we wanted. The process was smooth and easy and I wish we found them from the start. We only just booked, but we are very much looking forward to taking engagement photos and having them shoot our special day!!

    My husband and I used Dean Michaels Studio for both a "location" engagement photo session and wedding photography. Basically, I wanted a top quality studio that focused on capturing detail and beauty in a unique way. Rich and Dean were our main guys for the wedding day and both my family and I were truly impressed with their professionalism, creativity, and fabulous personalities! They were not intrusive, nor bossy. Rich and Dean "went with the flow" as much as possible, yet still had a "set plan" in mind for the wedding day. There were flurries, sleet, rain, and 35 degree temperatures on my wedding day. You would think this would hold them back? Not a chance!! Where I was leary and ready to cancel the outdoor pictures, Rich and Dean assured me that they would capture the beauty of the day in a clever way. Cold didn't stop them- handwarmers and all- they were prepared!!

    When I viewed the proofs online only a WEEK after the wedding date, I was blown away! Dean and Rich got so many beautiful shots in my home and at the church and reception. There was such a variety of structured and unstructured photos. From the way they captured my gown or my husband and his groomsmen, to the marble church, or the snow covered roads-- everything looked stunning! After ordering a few photos to sample the different options such as color, black/white, and sepia, I was again so incredibly pleased with the quality of the portrait itself!! I should note that the engagement photos were transferred into a "guest signing book." These photos were really magnificent. Top quality all around! I look forward to receiving my wedding albums.

    Please don't hesitate to use this wonderful business establishment for you photo and video services! All of the money you put forward is totally worth it! There are a few different package options for both photography and videography. All staff members were a pleasure to work with, were very accomodating, and worked to get orders processed in an efficient manner! I am truly so happy with Dean Michaels photography and videography!

    Our photos are gorgeous!

    Dean Michaels Studio was the perfect choice for our wedding photography. We loved their style when we booked them, and they surpassed our expectations when we saw how gorgeous our wedding and engagement photos turned out. Rich took our engagements photos last spring, and he was so helpful with getting us relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. We had an amazing experience working with Laura and Cory on our wedding day last month. They were so fun and knew just how to capture every moment on our special day. Each photo we’ve received is better than the next!

    Amazing!

    Choosing Dean Michaels as my photographer was one of the best decisions I have ever made. From the second that Dean and Rich walked into the venue, they used my visions and ideas and made the pictures better than I could have EVER dreamed of. Every single picture perfectly captured the whole day (even the fleeting moments that have already slipped my mind). The formal pictures with my husband and me truly make us look like models and the pictures from the reception were on point with taking pictures of a variety of my guests. I haven't stopped getting compliments on the pictures that I have posted on social media and I will recommend Dean Michaels for any couple that is looking for miracle workers of photographers!!!!

    Fantastic Pictures

    So happy that we chose Dean Michaels as our photographer! The quality of the pictures, the attentiveness and experience of the photographers and the value of the service is unbeatable. They captured all of the most precious moments on our special day and did so in very high quality. We were surprised at the sheer number of pictures we received after the wedding (over 3,000 photos) and keep going through them all to relive the day. Thank you for capturing this milestone, we will cherish the pictures forever. Thank you Dean Michaels!!

    Excellent job!!!

    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.

    Amazing Photo Studio

    Dean Michaels was awesome to work with and gave us an amazing photographer, Cory, to work with. They answered all our questions and worked with us to stay in our budget. They helped us contact our photographer in advance to get to know him and really worked with us.

    Amazing experience!

    We used Dean Michaels for our wedding photo & video on September 2nd. Both photographers & videographer we had were an absolute joy to work with. We never met our them until the day of our wedding (we’re not from New Jersey) and the minute we met them, we felt completely comfortable! Our wedding photos just came back and we are blown away at how amazing they turned out. We can’t wait to get our video back!! Highly recommend Dean Michaels for your any photo/video needs.

    We used Dean Michaels Studio for our wedding on August 31. We are so happy with their service! I met with several companies before finally deciding to go with them. The whole process was stress free from the initial meeting to booking and signing the contract and making the payments. The day of the photographer and videographer were on time and prepared and took the most gorgeous pictures and video. I highly recommend them to anyone weather it be for a wedding or another occassion!

    Dean Michaels captured the best memories for us on our wedding day! We chooses Dean Michaels because they know our wedding venue very well, and we liked their portfolio photos. Also, a lot details on their website.
    Maggie and Ben were our photographers, and they did a great job! They were very professional and responsible. They helped us figure it out better timing for taking photos with family and guests. We were very happy that we had awesome pictures with everyone and every moment. All the pictures came out very nice, and we were very impressed by the details, lighting, and quality of the photos!!!

    Dean Michaels Studio is a wonderful photography studio to use to document your important event! We used their services for our wedding in July and were extremely pleased how they worked with us and met our needs from day one. The staff was helpful and very willing to answer questions during planning stages. On our wedding day, our photographer Laura was amazing as well. She was open to suggestions and ideas for pictures from the bride and groom but also extremely creative. We are extremely happy with our choice to use Dean Michaels Studio and highly recommend using their services!

    Dean Michaels studio was awesome! Our photographers were dean and Maggie and they were professional, nice (while still getting our large family and bridal party together in a timely manner) , and listened to everything we wanted.
