Di at dreamlife was so wonderful! By the end of our first meeting I felt like we became friends. He was so wonderful and despite car trouble the morning of our wedding he arrived on time. Di and his aasistant Jessie were so creative and helpful all day long. I thought the pictures would be ruined because it was pouring raining all day but he had us take the pictures in my barn and from the few I saw so far they came out amazing. Dreamlife was a budget friendly fantastic company to work with and I can't wait to see our album! Thanks Di!!

The photographer and videographer were great. They came early to the ceremony and reception and took all the shots we wanted. They were very efficient and non-intrusive, I didn't even know they were there. They were always around to take picture but didn't make there presents known, they let us concentrate on ourselves. Paulo was funny and made us all feel comfortable even when things were turning out the way we wanted.

Dreamlife photography and video made our wedding dreams a reality. Ivan was our photographer, and we had our engagement session first in DUMBO N.Y. After our engagement session with Ivan, I knew that our wedding photos would be like a fairy tale. He had the ability to show us what to do, with out making us look like models. I can't express how amazing his work is. We also had a fantastic videographer, unfortunately I can't recall his name...but he was extremely unique and creative. Both Ivan and the videographer were absolutely amazing, I would highly recommend both of them for anyone else's wedding. Also Sandy I'm the office, was wonderful!! She gave us a package that we couldn't refuse. You will not be sorry, once you book with dreamlife photo and video. Excellent, excellent excellent!!!! Ps. Ivan's work was so amazing, that our vendors asked to use his photos on their websites!!

What can we say about dreamlife other than they've been completely excellent to us. We went on wedding wire looking for photographers. From looking at their sample pictures online we were sold. We went to meet with Sandy(office manager) and she was very courteous to us. Explained everything in details and they way they work. After seeing many photographers that believe they are the best with weak photographs after seeing their worked we signed contract right then and there. Di our photographer then followed up with us as promised which we loved. Speaks a lot about their organization.!!! Di was simply amazing! Helping us and guiding us throughout the process. When you have a wedding you count on the vendors to be leaders and he definitely was. We did an engagement session with Di and phenomenal! Helping us with poses and what to expect. If you ask me he went over and above and helped us overcome some of the obstacles we were encountering! He broke down time management and what to expect and on the day of the event he delivered!!!! Very punctual and best believe if he's so much as running 5 minutes behind he would've called you to let you know!!! You must book through dreamlife you'll be disappointed if you dont!!

Our photographer was Diana and she was great! We had to take a lot of family pictures for my in-laws and she was so patient and professional although it was madness. All of them came out beautifully! We had a vintage-nerd wedding and she really captured our style through her pictures. She made sure that we got all of our requested shots and then hung back and took a photojournalist approach, which was great because we got to really enjoy our wedding the entire evening. We also received our pictures a little over a month after our wedding, which was unbelievably quick!

I found Dreamlife at a bridal show and was impressed by their albums and photos. I immediately contacted them and was able to book an appointment shortly after. They were very friendly and accommodating and gave me great advice. They set me up with a great photographer who was also very friendly and had great ideas for our engagement photo shoot. Once I saw the quality of my engagement photos, I was confident that my wedding photos were going to be just as great. On my wedding day, the photographers were professional and friendly and captured some great moments. My friends and family were all impressed and love my photos as well. I am very happy with Dreamlife and would recommend them to those searching for great photographers.

Although I have not seen the final product of our wedding pictures, I have confidence that they will be great. Di was our photographer from Dreamlife. Not only is he laid back and funny but he is a skilled photographer as well. We took an array of posed (ie. family pics) but mostly candid shots that were both unique and personal. Since it rained on our wedding day, Di changed the location of our photos on a whim which turned out to better than our original location. We cannot thank Di enough for all the time and effort he put in to make our day go without a hitch! Can't wait to see our pictures!
