In the last year we have invested over $25,000 in new equipment to bring you, our clients, better quality images, both stills and video. We now have the ability to shoot your video in full 1080i HD video. We can also give you your final video on Blu-ray. DreamCatcher Production is dedicated to giving you the best quality work we can without costing you a fortune. In this economy, we have even designed packages to allow you to use our professional services instead of "Uncle Charlie" doing it. We also are one of the only studios to offer you all of your images without charging you. Once we complete your package, you become the copyright holder. You will also receive all your images, shot the day of the event, and the ones we retouch for your album, on a flashdrive when we deliver your album to you. You will also receive your actual camera original video tapes when we deliver your finished DVD's to you.

This was for my daughter's wedding, we looked and looked for many months and my daughter found them, We went to go see them and the first moment I met them, I felt like family to them. They are down to earth, and will work with you on what you want. The pictures were beautiful, and they are great to work with Lisa and Michael make you feel so special that day. We got video too. I have another daughter who is getting married this year October O5 and guess who I am using yep Dream Catcher's that is how good they are . They stay in touch with you. Believe me as a parent of two girls who used them and will be using them again. They are beyond perfect for me .

I was a bridesmaid in a wedding DreamCatcher shot 2 years ago and had a great experience, so we dediced to use them for our own wedding. Mike and Lisa were wonderful. They walked though all the wedding details with us before hand and were responsive to our questions. Lisa was upfront that our timeline was tight and she'd need our cooperation to get all of our pictures done, as we did ours before the ceremony. They kept us on schedule and the pictures were wonderful! We are very happy with them and would (and have) recommended them for friends.

The best to work with. They were easy going and made me feel so comfortable especially in the beginning of all the photos. They would show me some shots along the way and they looked amazing! I could not have asked for anything more. I can't wait to see the video and pictures!

from before we booked till the present my husband and i have thouroughly enjoyed working with the people of dreamcatchers! mike the owner has been nothing but kind hearted and helpful in all the preperation of our wedding. i had mentioned to him that my cousin just had open heart surgery and he wouldn't be able to make my wedding and he was very sad. mike instantly told me he would make an extra dvd for him so he wouldn't miss my special day. also working with my budget and throwing in a few extras that were not in my package. THANKS MIKE!
jen was the photograher for our wedding. she was on-time if not early and just fit right in at my house and took a butt load of pictures while dealing with a spacey first time bride. while at the church she was on the ball and caught a few little mishaps and corrected them for the boys. the reception i notice a few times that she wasn't shy about getting on the floor, on a chair or standing in the freezing february air to get a good shot.
emelio was the videographer. he was great! didn't even notice he was around. very stelthie but there when you needed him. so excited to edit my video togther with him!
THANKS AGAIN TO THE GREAT CREW OF DREAMCATCHERS!
I RECCOMEND THIS VENDOR AND WILL USE THEM AGAIN WHEN THE OCCASION ARISES.

The value is unsurpassable with DC photo and video--I feel that we are getting so much for our money and because of that I am so happy with our decision to book Mike and his team. We met some great people along the way (I feel like I have made friends, not just business acquaintances)--we loved working with Amanda and Robin! Mike is extremely friendly and very generous; he and Lisa are always quick to get back to phone calls or emails. Our engagement photos came out beautiful and so did our proofs from the wedding. We can't wait to see the final images for our albums (of course I need to finish sorting through the almost 1800 images and get my selections back to the studio first)! And we are looking forward to our video, too. We love you guys and hope to have the opportunity to use your services again.

Michael and Lisa were extremely pleasant and helpful during each phase of the event from initially suggesting a package that would suit our needs, explaining everything we needed to know, answered all questions, and delivered a quality product.
