Sarah & Nick said… – Dean and his wife did an amazing job shooting our wedding. The photo sessions included engagement, pre-wedding day activities, wedding ceremony, and reception. They were always on time and excited to take pictures and were open to our requests for certain photos. I feel that the experience that Dean has really shows in his creativity, and post processing skills. I felt very confident that he was able to capture all of the moments that my wife and I want to remember for a lifetime.

The photo booth was probably the hit of the reception. Dean stocks lots of props that make the booth so much fun. Highly recommend a photo booth to anyone who is planning a wedding. The booth shows all of the silly and fun moments that go along with a reception. It is a great place to get everyone together, and let loose, and have a great time.

Of all of the pictures we had taken, only about 5 had some minor issue that I was not happy about. Keep in mind we received about 1300 pics total. All and all I would recommend Dean to anyone for photo services. He was on time, open to ideas and understood ideas what we articulated, and very helpful keeping everyone’s sanity during our special day.

Awesome guy and very willing and eager to help!

Justin & Krystina – Words cannot express how amazing Dean’s Photography is. I was nervous for a photographer because I wanted to be sure to have the best pictures to remember our wedding day. What I got was far more than that. I didn’t just give a 5/5 to say yeah they were good, because they were far beyond good. Not once did I stress about anything picture related, and when I stressed about other things Dean was right there to help me feel at ease. I didn’t have to come up with any ideas or ask for any photos we got everything we could have wanted and more. Every time anyone thought “this would be a good photo op” without even saying it out loud within a few seconds there they were to capture the moment. Not only that, but we received our pictures in a very timely manor! I had heard many horror stories of pictures gone missing or regrets as to pictures not taken, but never once did those cross my mind. I would, and have been, recommending Dean’s Photography to anyone I possibly can (Even if they all ready have a photographer) It would be a mistake to not have Dean’s Photography capture your day. They are much more than photographers, they watch over every aspect of your day and make sure you are always happy, there is always a drink in your hand, and everything is going smoothly. After we got back from our honeymoon it was amazing the number of people that complemented on how great the photographers were. I promise you, if you choose to go with another photographer you are making a mistake.

Debbie – Mother of the Bride: ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!! I really don’t know how else you could describe the service we received! From start to finish the professionalism, the fun, the crowd/group interaction and just their overall personalities of the photographers were a HUGE HUGE HIT!!!! I would not recommend anyone else. Not only the quantity of pictures but the quality of capturing the moments, the moments that sometimes we think are not that big but yet the picture shows it, these guys did it! Capturing a picture says a thousand words and the photos have a story just by looking at them without someone telling you about them. Not only the wedding party but the guest talked about our photographers weeks after the wedding and how much they enjoyed them. Making sure they took quality pictures of them as well as others and being very personable and fun. I can not tell you how many people asked where we found them! I would personally like to thank them for capturing the great picture of my daughter “Trashing the Dress” jumping into Okauchee Lake with her husband. They told me they were going to do it but I was afraid to watch because of how much I paid for that dress! But they captured it to a “T”!! Even the photo area was a HUGE HIT for our guest!! They had so much fun taking pictures and using the over abundance of props that were there for all to use!! PERSONALITY! PROFESSIONALISM! QUALITY PICTURES! AND OVERALL EXCELLENT EXCELLENT SERVICE!! THEY ARE ONE OF A KIND IN MY BOOK!!!!

Whitney & Royce – Dean and Paul were amazing! All the pictures I told them I wanted they took. We had well over a 1000 pictures taken of our day and I’m glad they captured every moment. The day goes way too fast and having a good photographer is important. I will recommend Dean to every bride asking for a good photographer. The energy they had was great. Never stopped the entire night. They made sure they captured everything. If anyone wants a fun, reliable, talented photographers, Dean’s Photography is the one!!!

Raves_Jen&Clint_1068

Jenny & Clinton – One of the most important decisions we made, pertaining to the wedding, was who was going to take our photographs. From the first contact we had with Dean, we knew that he and his staff were meant to capture our special day. We were searching for a photographer who would capture all of the different emotions from the day in a special, casual, non-pushy way…Dean and his staff definitely fit the bill and then some. They were so amazing with all of our bridal party, family and guests…we received a number of compliments on how wonderful our photographers were. My husband is into drag racing and all things automobile related and Dean and his staff were hanging out of sunroofs flying down the freeway trying to capture shots and they made a pitstop to be sure we could get pictures with my husband’s beloved race car. We were also on a bit of a time crunch and they did everything in their power to keep us on track without being pushy and still allowing us to enjoy the time and have fun. I cannot say enough good things about Dean and his staff…we were so very fortunate to have them as a part of our special day and I would highly recommend their services to anyone in the market for an amazing wedding photographer!!!!

Raves_Jen&Rodd_0003

Jenn & Rodd – Dean’s Photography was more than I could have asked for. Reliving it through pictures is awesome! Dean and Andy traveled to take our engagement pics in a snowstorm and the pictures they took were wonderful! They also took the same trip the night of rehearsal, stayed the night locally so they could be up and ready to go again first thing in the morning! These guys were helpful throughout the time spent with us.. Not only were the pictures absolutely amazing but they really made the wedding party as well as family feel comfortable and relaxed. I highly recommend Dean’s Photography and words really can’t explain how great they are!

Raves_Ted&Jess_0442

Ted & Jess – If you are looking for a wedding photographer, LOOK NO FURTHER!! We had SUCH an amazing experience working with Dean and his team. Our entire wedding party had so much fun doing our portraits with Dean, Andy and Angela. They had so many ideas as to what would make great photos, but were so flexible and open with us when we had other amateur ideas 🙂 They also provided a photo booth for us at the reception, and ALL of our guests enjoyed taking ridiculous amounts of fun snapshots in there. We are so grateful for everything Dean’s Photography provided for us on our big day. We hands down could not have had a better team, and our big day absolutely would not have been as wonderful without them. HIRE THEM NOW!!

Raves_Rach&Caleb_1588

Rachel & Caleb – Dean’s Photography was one of the best things about our wedding! They were great to work with and family/friends loved them. They were creative and willing to do whatever it took to get the best shot. We received our pictures in a very timely fashion and were beyond pleased with the results. The photobooth was amazing and so much fun! I would recommend Dean’s Photography to anyone looking for a photographer!

Jennifer – Mother of the Bride – Dean’s Photography was better than we could have ever imagined for our daughter’s wedding! Dean & Andy were so wonderful to work with. They were always on time, friendly and took amazing pictures. The engagement pictures and wedding pictures were beautiful. The photo booth was also a big hit at the wedding reception. So many people commented on how friendly Dean was and fun to work with. Thank you Dean’s Photography for blessing Rachel & Caleb’s wedding day!

Raves_Abbey&Andy_0657

Abbey & Andy – Dean’s Photography is amazing. They are such professionals but keep everything relaxed and flowing smoothly. They were so much fun to work with! Not to mention what quality photos we now have to remember our special day! These guys truly are the best in the business.

Raves_Caroline_James_0511

Caroline & James – Dean and my husband have been friends for many years. Over the years we have seen some of his work, which is why we wanted him to be the photographer at our wedding.

Not just as a friend, but as a professional, Dean sits down and gets to know his Brides and Grooms and other clients. He listens to what your interests are, what you would like, and who you are as a couple.

Dean is not afraid to get down and dirty for the perfect picture. Dean has climbed up into trees, balanced on rocks in the middle of the river and laid down in the middle of a street to get those perfect pictures for us. For everything Dean offers with his services, the price is worth it. We could not be happier and could not have asked for anything better then what Dean has done for us! Highly recommend.

Raves_Lindsay&James_0572

Lindsay & Gumby – Oh I cannot speak highly enough of Dean and his services. Seriously unbelievable how amazing he was and the way he helped created a dream day for me!!! He was responsiveness, creative, and ultimately doing everything he could to help me, my husband, and our wedding party have the most memorable day. He and Andy literally created (and captured) the wedding of our dreams. He started the morning with us at 9am and lasted up through midnight. He was smiles all day long, constantly coming up with fun activities that would create valuable memories, and got along famously with all our wedding guests. HIRE, HIRE, HIRE. and soon. With the high quality services he provides, I imagine he’s going to start getting quite busy!

Raves_Kathleen&Phil_0385

Kathleen & Philibuster – We were absolutely thrilled with the work of Dean and his team! They were totally responsive to all of our needs. Our package included an engagement session and our wedding day, but they also shot the wedding rehearsal. All our photos turned out beautifully and the team also went out of their way to make sure our day went smoothly. They all had headpieces in and one of my friends thought they were our wedding coordinators they were so helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend Dean’s (or Andy’s or Angela’s) work to anyone and am so happy we booked them.

Raves_Melissa&Steve
Melissa & Steve – I am so happy with our choice of photographer. Dean was and is amazing! I would do it all over again and not change a thing!

Rave_Katy&Jose__0535

Katy & Jose = WOW! Amazing service from this wonderful company! They blew past all of our expectations, and I will be talking about them for years to come. They made sure that my husband and I were comfortable throughout the engagement session, rehearsal, and wedding. They constantly were offering to help out with side details, and we even needed them to make an emergency run for ice to chill our champagne for our limo on our wedding day. Even when I was turning all bridezilla because some things were not panning out, Dean was able to make me smile and laugh- and prevent me from crying. I am so blessed that we had the opportunity to book them.

Raves_S&M0902_0113

Sarah & Michael – Dean’s Photography was a pleasure to work with! My wedding was a last-minute type event (less than a month of planning), and Dean was extremely accommodating to my schedule. He and his assistant even traveled to an unplanned secondary site to take some dinner/reception photos! The pictures were beautiful and my husband and I are so excited to have these memories to look back on forever! I would recommend their services to anyone. They do exceptional work.

Raves_Mon&Travis

Monica & Travis – I was very impressed on the way Dean is willing to work with anyone. Our finances were a little tight for the wedding and he worked with us for multiple payments. If it wasn’t for that we would not of had a photographer for our wedding. He is very good at what he does. He also gets your pictures back to you in a very timely matter. I do not have one complaint about using Dean’s Photography!!!!!
