  • Gene and Sam were awesome to work with. From our engagement photo session to wedding day photos and dj services, everything was wonderful! They made it fun and were quick. They kept people on the dance floor all night!

  • We had an AMAZING experience with Gene. He is a great photographer and an awesome DJ. He does reception activities in a unique way that made all of the guests feel involved! He knows exactly what he wants to do with the settings of pictures and does them in a fast and efficient way but with the best quality. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer/dj. We had a lot of fun!

  • Worth every penny spent to have these guys be part of our day. We really enjoyed having Gene and Sam as our photographers. They made our day fun and made the picture part of our day very relaxed. We received several compliments about them throughout the day and couldn't ask for better.

  • Gene was excellent to work with! He responds to emails very quickly, very professional, and helped even my shy husband loosen up enough to take fun photos that look "more like us". He came to our family farm for engagement photos, and then drove to IA for our wedding. He picked up on our style and came up with lots of different poses to accommodate us. I liked that we were given a flash drive with all the photos on it to then use when and where we wanted. It allowed us time to decide which photos we wanted to print out, use for thank you cards, etc. Since our wedding, I've seen Gene a few other times at my friends weddings- because they liked him so much as well!

  • Absolutely loved working with Gene and Sam! They were amazing, fun, and were very good at making you feel comfort able. Pictures and the entire day went smoothly and my husband and I didn't have to worry about a thing Gene or Sam had everything organized and planned and kept everything rolling from pictures to the dance. I have had endless comments on how fun our wedding was! They played all the music we liked and kept the crowd on the dance floor the whole night to where when they quit at midnight the crowd chanted three more songs. They were great more than we imagined and would recommend them to anyone!

  • Gene was very accommodating! We knew nothing about wedding planning and Gene made us feel comfortable to ask him any question. We called him several times with non picture related questions. He always answered our call and was very helpful. As far as taking pictures, him and his team took great photos and we're really easy to work with. Pictures the day of the wedding went quick, so everyone stayed fresh. They didn't drag on at a slow pace like some weddings I have been in. He also did a great job as a DJ.

  • Loved working with Gene as my wedding photographer. Engagement pictures were great and he was very flexible with the time we took them as we had to reschedule as I was sick. We have not gotten our wedding pictures back yet as we were just married a week ago but we had a great time taking the pictures. Gene and Sam took a lot of pictures that we think will turn out great and took any and all suggestions we had and were willing to do whatever silly poses we wanted after we got our serious family pictures done. I highly recommend the Studio I Do-especially for the price!

  • Gene and Sam did such an amazing job with both pictures and DJing for the reception. The wedding party and family all commented on Gene and Sam remembering everyone by name. Many comments were made on how great the reception and DJ were. We know the pictures are going to turn out great and everything turned out better than we could have imagined.

  • We were early planners and contacted The Studio I Do almost a year and a half in advance. From then until the day of communication was always given with prompt replies and understanding of our trying to plan our South Dakota wedding from California. We used the Photography + DJ/MC package which included our engagement session also. The pictures looked absolutely amazing and we received them all, edited and with a release, in quick time. The DJ part of the package was just as good. They made sure to keep it a fun evening and getting everyone out on the floor. Not only was it wonderful quality but working with Gene for both the engagement and wedding photos was such fun. My husband is very reserved and it was fun seeing him open up during this thanks to Gene's great and fun attitude! We had the other photographer Sam on the wedding day as well and he had great ideas and input to add in to really complete the day. A great team! I highly recommend them to anyone looking, well worth the pri... Read more

  • Gene is great! If booking with the Studio I Do make sure Gene and Sam are your wedding day photographers. Pam and Heather were pretty unorganized and, unfortunately, we did not end up with very good pictures.

  • Gene and Sam were so fun to work with. My husband and I chose the photographer/DJ package and couldn't have been more pleased. We received so many compliments throughout the night about how energetic and professional they were. Our pictures turned out fantastic, too. I would highly recommend them! You will not be disappointed.
