Ashley and Wade Dowden
We sought a photographer to entrust with the most extraordinary day of our lives and we got the most incredible experience imaginable. There might be a number of talented photographers but what makes Sam and Shiva unique is their spot on connection with creating exactly what you want. They are nothing short of fantastic and we were so lucky to find them. Their style is impeccable. It was fun and elegant while complementing our home wedding flair. Everything from the moment we met felt comfortable. We shared a few concepts that were important to us and they did the rest with all their expertise. We have an impressive recollection of our amazing wedding with gorgeous poses, intricate wedding details and fun family and guest snap shots that characterize our amazing wedding. Sam and Shiva are perfect photographers and remarkable individuals who have given us a lifetime of marvelous memories. Our experience was the absolute best and our wedding was just the beginning because now we found our forever professional photographers!
Where do I begin?! I must say Shiva is a great communicator! She is always available via email, phone or text! Before, our wedding day she arranged a meeting to explain everything to us and how their team will perform! On our wedding day, they were much earlier than the schedule arrival time! They made sure to capture all the shots that we had in our request list! Sam made it to our reception from another event and for a few hours we had 3 photographers! The images from our wedding day make us smile and laugh-out-loud, and they also literally bring us to tears. We had so much fun shooting with them! While some couples may think of the photos as something to just “get through” on their wedding day, we actually enjoyed it and now treasure that bit of time it gave us away from the fast-pace of the day. If you are looking for photographers who will go the extra mile to create original images of your big day, they are it. My advice- Find photographers who are in-love with what they do. When we received our Highlight we were just speechless! It truly exceeded our expectations! We are so thankful that Shiva suggested second videographer and we went with it! It covered all angels and we also had the opportunity to receive a documentary edited version of our video as well! Shiva & Sam, We are thrilled with our pictures and videos and cannot thank you enough!
We had the pleasure of hiring Dream Photo and Video for our engagement session, bridals and day of wedding photography and videography! I cannot say enough about Shiva and Sam. From the first meeting with them we know we would be in excellent hands! It was always very important to me to choose the right people to capture our special day and I was so worried we wouldn’t be able to find a business that would take our photos as seriously as we would. We knew instantly when we met Shiva and Sam that they were the right fit, they were dedicated to making sure our wedding was captured in the way we wanted it to be. They were very open to ideas that we had and gave excellent shot suggestions for both our engagement and bridal sessions. Our engagement session was fun and the pictures came out beautifully. We have received so many compliments on them and it was so difficult to choose which ones to use for our save the dates (we ended up using 4!). My bridal pictures were absolutely magical, I felt so beautiful. I didn’t have any idea about poses before the session but Shiva and Sam positioned me beautifully. I made the mistake of not eating the day of my bridals (I am diabetic) and ended up getting light headed, Shiva and Sam were so very patient and caring with me and helped me feel better. The extended our session a bit to make sure I go in all the photos I wanted. I was so beaming with happiness and excitement when I got the photos and I looked amazing. The hardest part was to not run out and show everyone my bridal photos before the wedding. I was so reassured that day about our decision, that they took the time and knew how important theses photos were. Their clients and not just another couple to them, they know and care about your journey into marriage and know the magnitude of it all. Our wedding day was truly a dream and captured just as that, I cannot rave enough about how every detail was highlighted of our wedding. All of our love and loved ones were captured in.
If your looking for someone that knows what they’re doing this is the company you’ve been looking for. Not only is the quality amazing the staff and employees are outstanding. You defiantly pay for what you get. If you don’t believe me try giving them a call and take the time to talk to them. You’ll understand what I mean. Another thing I wanted to point out was their HARD work. We only had 1 photographer, looking at the pictures you would think we had a entire team…. I mean this man was everywhere! At the end of the day I think he changed his shirts 2 or 3 times haha. And believe it or not with him running around everywhere he didn’t cause a scene or disturb a thing. Heck I didn’t know where he was half the time, but he sure didn’t miss anything! Love Love Love the pictures and video!
My wife and I cannot thank Dream Photo and Video for their kindness, enthusiasm, and attention to details on our wedding photos. Their professionalism,level of skill and expertise, and efficiency, was simply outstanding. The photos definitely exceeded our expectations. We are completely blown away. You totally captured every moment. and each photo is like an artwork. All of our families and friends were very impressed at how dedicated you all were. Your friendly, professional service in the lead up to and on the day was second to none. To put it simply we were speechless when we first saw our photos. We are incredibly happy with every single shot and can’t believe that you were able to move around so much and yet not even be seen. We have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone who is looking for an amazing service and beautifully captured images. Good luck with all of your future endeavors.
We had Dream Photo and Video (Shiva and Sam) do our wedding photos and we are beyond impressed! We had our wedding in Boston where none of us live and they found a magical place and did our photos at the perfect time for evening light. They worked quickly, and gave clear instructions of interesting poses and angles which turned out really well. When I saw a few of the finished photos, I actually didn’t recognize myself at first, I thought I was looking at Pintrest wedding shots or something. The photos literally looked better than real life! For the rest of the wedding, all the right moments were captured and many accommodations were made to give perfect lighting, (they moved lights around helped with backgrounds) We are over the moon with the results from our wedding photos and we felt totally comfortable because they worked so hard to make every detail right. We are truly grateful to have these memories that we will enjoy and share for the rest of our lives. Thank you Thank you Thank you!
