Dear Dean Michaels Studio, Thank you for taking photographs of us on our wedding day. Your presence that day especially before the wedding made that time not as anxiety filled as I imagined. The proofs came out absolutely beautiful! We couldn’t have asked for anything more of you that day. Now the tough part – picking the photos for our album!! You are the Best!!

With so many things going on the day of the wedding it was nice to know we didn’t have to worry about our pictures – you made my day!! Thanks again and I will be spreading the word to all of my friends and family about your services!!

Dear Dean Michaels Studio, Russ and I just wanted to say Thanks for the great job you did with our wedding video. Its was so refreshing to have a videographer who wasn’t “in your face” all the time! You also did a great job of capturing all the things Russ and I were unavailable to see. Thanks again for making our wedding even more memorable!
