  • 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 vide... Read more

  • 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!!!

  • It was a no brainer to hire Dean Michaels after being a bridesmaid in another wedding. Rich and the whole crew made us feel so comfortable that day and then having Rich do our engagement photos was so easy. He made us feel very relaxed and we loved how our photos came out! Christin has been super helpful and responsive. We are so glad to be working with them until our wedding in June!

  • 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!!

  • One of the most important things to me in the wedding process was our photography and videography, and Dean Michaels really delivered! Maggie was our main shooter, and we also worked with Rich as our second shooter and Alex as our videographer. They all were wonderful to work with, and respected the safety precautions in place at our venue. Maggie made us feel so comfortable and at ease with the process. My husband does not like to be the center of attention, and they really helped him feel comfortable throughout the day. The team did a great job capturing our special moments, and everything turned out so nice. It definitely was a bit of a splurge, but I am really glad we went with Dean Michaels for our photography and videography. We had our sneak peak after 5 days, and our entire digital images and film within 3 weeks of the wedding! We will treasure the videos and photos for the rest of our lives!

    Hi Catherine! It has been a pleasure planning your special day with you and your husband. Planning a wedding during a pandemic is not as easy and we give you both so much credit for sticking through it all! Your wedding images and video came out beautiful and we are so happy that you love them! Cherish these memories forever and we hope to see you in the future! Best, DMS

  • My husband and I are absolutely blown away by the photos we received back from our wedding. I don’t even know how I can put into words how happy we are that we will have these pictures forever to remember our wedding day by. When we first met with Dean Michaels Studios I was at a point in planning where I was feeling a bit like we would never find a photographer who’s photos we loved AND who we got along well with (my emotion shows on my face so this was SO important to me). Our initial meeting with Christin went phenomenally. She was kind, knowledgeable, and totally listened to all of our concerns. I love that their packages are customizable but their base packages do give an excellent place to start. We decided to add on an engagement shoot to give us the opportunity to meet and get comfortable with our main photographer, Laura. Christin has suggested Laura after listening to our “wants”. And wow, she is amazing! Within just a few minutes it felt like it was a friend taki... Read more

  • My husband and I got married on October 11, 2019 and we cannot stop talking about our photographers. Corey and Maggie are wonderful! They took their time to gather information that they felt was necessary to make our day so special. We cannot begin to express our gratitude to the both of them for all the hard work they had shown on our wedding day. They made our day so special! They took their time to get the right shots and went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make sure everything was perfect! They were wonderful to work with and we will never forget them. They were a big part of our day. We can't wait for the pictures- I know they will be absolutely perfect! I wouldn't think twice when looking for a photographer- Dean Michaels is it!

  • 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 go... Read more

  • Dean Michaels Studio was a dream to work with. They were very responsive over email in the months leading up to the wedding and the communication back and forth made me feel very confident in our decision to hire them as our wedding photographer. Before the wedding our photographer, Maggie, gave me a call to go over the logistics and to get a sense of what pics we wanted and who will be there to photograph after our first look. She was absolutely amazing to work with! Our whole wedding party loved her, and the photos she took were just beautiful!!! I will recommend Dean a Michaels Studio to everyone I know!

  • We got married on May 26 and booking Dean Michaels was one of the best decisions we made! When booking we met with Rich, who also ended up being our photographer along with Maggie. These two are an amazing team and got such incredible shots of us and our guests. They were so friendly and so creative when shooting, I am obsessed with every single picture, which is A LOT! I could not say enough good things about this company and their photographers. They were so quick to respond to all emails and took all requests for our photo ops and managed to fit them all in. I will highly reccommend Dean Michaels Photography to any couple!

  • Dean Michaels Studio was absolutely amazing from start to finish! When my husband and I first walked into their office, Christin explained all of the packages to us and asked us a few questions to get a sense of what we were looking for with our wedding photos. She went above and beyond to make sure we made the right decisions. She assigned Maggie to me and Rich to my husband who were both great! They captured every moment of our special day and we couldn’t be happier with our photos and videos! Thank you Christin and Dean Michaels Studio for all of your hard work to help make my dream wedding come true!
