  • 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!!!

  • We booked Dean Michaels studio for both photography & videography and we couldn't be happier about our decision! We ended up having to postpone because of covid and they were so responsive and easy to work with. The day of our wedding was flawless and we got all the pics we wanted. Everyone was so friendly and we couldnt have had a better team. Cant wait to create our wedding album with them :)

    Hi Christina! Thank you so much for your positive feed back. It truly means a lot to us especially during these circumstances. 2020 was not the easiest year to get through, but with your positive attitude and all the support it made our day much better. We are so happy to have guided you and your husband through the wedding planning process. All of our shooters had wonderful things to say about you both and they enjoyed celebrating your special day! Thank you for being there for us as well during these times. We love what we do and we love to see our newlyweds happy! Keep in touch! - DMS

  • Rich was our shooter for our engagement shoot and he will be second shooter at our wedding. We were extremely pleased with his service and his attention to detail. He is super easy to work with and has a great personality, it made us feel comfortable with him and it shows in the quality of the pictures . We can't wait to shoot our wedding with Rich and the rest of the Dean Michaels team.

  • Dean Michael Studio is amazing! Rich was so helpful & spoke with me several times before the wedding to make sure we were on the same page and to hear our my vision. They were on time & knew exactly what they were doing. Ben & Eli were equally as amazing! I am so excited to get my pictures and video back. 5 stars Dean Michael!

  • 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 best decisions we made for our wedding was hiring Dean Michaels Studio. We had Rich and Maggie for our wedding day, as well as Rich for our engagement photo shoot over a year before the big day. The quality of photos that this studio produces is mind-blowing! When we got the images back from our engagement shoot, I could not believe how amazing the pictures were. Rich posed us in such a way that we looked graceful, peaceful, and completely in love. We are still getting compliments on those photos! The images are so crisp that you feel like you are right there! On our wedding day it was the exact same. Maggie and Rich were so respectful of the importance of the big event, but have such fun and amiable personalities that you couldn’t help but smile and laugh with them. They brought out our true smiles in photos just by being themselves. I’m eagerly awaiting the final photos and the album, but I’m 100% certain that we will love them as much as we loved the engagement shoo... Read more

  • Dean Michaels has been nothing but accommodating during this crazy process. Since the very beginning they were great to work with and when it came time to postpone they were even better. Our photographer Rich was the best! So nice and down to earth and very very good at what he does. Definitely would recommend them to any future brides looking for a photographer/videographer!!

  • 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 fiance and I recently did our engagement shoot with Richard, and the photos turned out AMAZING!! We were blown away by the amount of time Rich put into discussing preparations and helping us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. He was so kind to shoot in 3 separate locations to capture places that were meaningful to our relationship and give us the winter wonderland engagement shoot we always dreamed of ♡ thank you so much, Rich! We are beyond grateful!
