  • 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

  • We had the pleasure of working with both Gene and Pamela. They were professional and easy to work with the entire time from the engagement pictures to the wedding! My now-husband and I felt at ease though neither one of us is very photogenic, but Gene and Pamela found a way to bring out the best in us! We would absolutely recommend Studio I Do to any couple looking for quality, affordable wedding pictures!

  • After attending a family members wedding, we knew we had to have Gene and Sam as our photographers/DJ on our big day! We actually changed our wedding date to make sure to obtain Gene as our photographer and we our so thankful we did. We could not have been more happy and pleased with the professionalism, creativity & kindness we received from them both the entire day. They were fantastic with letting us all know where to be & what to do while taking our photos and keeping it light and fun for everyone. We will be recommending your services to all our family and friends. Thank you Gene and Sam for giving us the most memorable day of our lives.

  • I wish I could give Gene & Sam a 10.0/5.0 for overall rating! They were incredible!! Book them now. We hired Gene as photographer as well as DJ for our wedding day. First off, we had engagement pictures. Gene asked me to send him ideas that I wanted to be sure we got. I sent him a lot of ideas and when we showed up for our session, Gene had them memorized! He coordinated our session and told us how to pose and where. Then we got all the edits within a week! There wasn't a single one (of 600) we didn't like. After that we could not wait for our wedding day because we knew he'd be just as efficient then too. Gene and Sam were fantastic. We got all the images that I wanted for our wedding day and some that we never would have thought of!! We've had numerous compliments on our reception as well. Gene and Sam kept the crowd entertained and caught some great pictures of the crowd! I HIGHLY recommend them to everyone. Why get a separate DJ and photographer when you can get both in the same pa... Read more

  • Gene Elrod is a true professional. I hope we can have him at our next child's wedding! He was great to work with prior to the wedding, gave us superior photos for both the engagement and wedding photos of our daughter and son in law. He was so awesome as our DJ at the wedding and the dance. We received tons of comments on how he kept everything moving along and there was never a dull moment. He was so cooperative with our ideas and anything we needed him to say the night of the reception. It was great to have engagement photos, wedding photos and the DJ all in one nice package rather than working with a separate photographer and separate DJ. In the end each family and the bride and groom were given a thumb drive with the photos and can print what we would like. I'd recommend Gene to everyone!

  • Gene is such a great and easy going photographer to work with. He gives great direction while still making you feel free to suggest shots and give input. Very professional and makes everyone feel comfortable with picture taking. He got so many compliments from everyone involved in our wedding for making family and group photos go off seamlessly. I would definitely recommend The Studio I Do for anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

  • Geno was easy to work with and energetic. We were definitely satisfied with his performance. He knew we were stressed and understood. He made things happen, even when other things were going wrong. The dance was amazing! His song choices went along with exactly what we asked him for. Couldn't have asked for a better DJ. He also contributed music to our ceremony and gave us just what we asked for :). He also took some photos at the dance for us that turned out great! Talented guy. Very thankful that we found him for our wedding!

  • Gene made himself available to us on such short notice and did a wonderful job capturing our special day. He was open to our ideas but came ready with lots of ideas of his own as well. He was quick but thorough, and the finished product was more than we could have asked for.

  • We had a great time with Gene and his assistant Sam at our wedding. We also enjoyed working with Gene for our engagement session. They are very easy to work with and accommodating to what we desired. They have a simple way of working with the couple and make it a relaxing and enjoyable time. The only thing I wished was that there could have been more editing done on certain images.
