Such a joy to work withReviewed on 7/21/2014 Allison R
We had a wonderful time with both of our photographers and our videographer on our wedding day! They were so fun to work with and welcomed all of our crazy ideas for photo ops!
Excellent photography and serviceReviewed on 4/08/2013 Jordan B
My sister referred us to Dreamlife Wedding Photo & Video after hearing such great reviews. I was very impressed right from the very first appointment and was not surprised at all when we received our wedding photos. They were absolutely amazing with excellent quality, Dreamlife did an amazing job and i could not have asked for more. I would recommend Dreamlife Wedding Photos & Video to everyone!
Diana and Paulo were wonderful! The photos we have seen so far are spectacular and they were so fun to have around on our big day. We have only seen a few pictures that they teased on social media and they look like magazine spreads! We can't wait to see the rest of the pictures and the photo book. Dreamlife did not have as much included in their packages as some other companies that included canvas wraps and numerous prints. We chose them anyway because the packages were a good price and all the photos were artistic and stunning. The hardcover photo books we looked through at their showroom were just gorgeous. We can always have prints made; It was more important to us to have wonderful photos taken by talented and professional photographers. The engagement session was not included in our package, but I simply asked for it free of charge because nearly all other companies offered them for free and they quickly agreed. We are SO happy with our choice of Dreamlife.
My wife and I chose to have Dreamlife Studios for our engagement/wedding and were extremely impressed. They were very knowledgable and accomadting to us throughout the whole process. Diana was our main photographer and did both the engagement shoot and the wedding. She was absolutly fantastic. Very nice, fun spirited, professional and creative- a true artist behind the lens. She knows exactly what she is doing and fed off of our chemistry and the pictures came out beautiful. She knew the style we were going for and nailed it on everyting. She made sure we got the important family shots and also got the creative artsy shots we wanted. She really made us feel at ease knowing we were in good hands and that meant a lot especially with something as important as pictures! Ivan, our other photographer on our special day, was great as well. He did a wonderful job with the bridal party pictures. We also had a videographer named Edison who was fantastic. He captured all the great moments we wanted and was accomdating with any ideas we sprung up on him last minute. Overall we cant say enough about these people and the studio. We would absolutely use them again for any special occaison and would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a perfect wedding day!
Dreamlife was outstanding for my wedding! I just got back our photography and it made me tear up seeing how beautiful and best captured everything was. Ivan Haung was my photographer and he was wonderful! So kind and helpful all day. He was always where he needed to be and even captured moments I wouldn't have thought of. The dreamlife company was also wonderful to work with alway very prompt and informative with emails. They made is easy and stress free.
Outstanding service! Ida and her team were second to none! Every special moment was captured forever thanks to ADA's superior team of professionals.
We had a fantastic experience using Dreamlife Photography for our wedding at the Bourne Mansion. We booked one of their packages which included two photographers (Ivan and Diana) as well as a cinematographer (William). All three were very professional and each brought a unique artistic eye for their craft and truly captured all the great memorable moments throughout our wedding day. We searched through an assortment of Photography places and Dreamlife stood out above the rest every time. They were affordable and very professional throughout our experience. We would highly recommend them for your wedding or event.
Excellent service from Diana, photos turned out really nice. Booked this from Scotland and there was no problems from paying to receiving my photos.
Ivan (our photographer) and Munjal (our videographer) were nothing short of amazing! So attentive and professional, and very accommodating to our crazy schedule. Our bridal party is a bit on the wild side, and I was worried they would have a hard time wrangling us all in, but they managed to get everyone in order. Even with the rainy weather, they made a dreary situation better. I can't wait to pick up our photos and videos to see how everything turned out.
Simply amazing. Love their service and their photo and video skills are top notch.
Diana is fantastic!!!! We had a great time working with her for our wedding. We were most concerned with missing time with our guests or parts of our day doing pictures but she kept the photos moving so quickly that we didn't miss a thing. I love how creative she was with a lot of our locations and backgrounds as well. We have some really fun pictures and had a great experience with her. Thank you!!!!!!
We found DreamLife randomly at a wedding expo and liked their brochure. It turned out to be the best decision we could have made for our wedding photography and videography. The staff is so professional and so friendly. From the setup of our account, to the actual pictures and video taken during our wedding, to retrieving our album, dvd, and making photo edits, they provided incredible customer service and helped us every step of the way. Our wedding guests commented over and over how the photographer was never in the way, was almost invisible and still captured incredible moments of the day. The wedding highlight video was a hit with all of our friends, family, and even strangers who saw it! The photo album was put together in such a lovely way as well, and when we needed to make a few adjustments, they were so easy to help us achieve the look we desired. I HIGHLY recommend using them for your wedding because they are really great at what they do!
In terms of the initial meetings and contract, the staff was very helpful and friendly. They responded quickly to all questions and emails. Sasha was our photographer and was absolutely incredible! Everyone in our families loved working with her and she made my husband and I both feel very comfortable. Sasha listened to exactly what we wanted and the pictures came out beautifully. I have been in weddings before where the photographer posts all of the photos on a website and you purchase the ones you want. I was very pleased that Dreamlife simply gives you the USB of all of your photos so you can share with family and friends without them having to pay.
Incredible product, excellent customer service, great price.
This review is specifically for videography. We did not get our photos from Dreamlife and are not in the position to rate them. To sum it up, we did not have a good experience. They are very professional and respond quickly to emails and phone calls, however their videography work is sloppy and the editing is done without consideration to what or who is actually on the screen. They say the understand the wedding day schedule and reassure you that they have covered many cultural weddings (Indian and Russian in our case), but the final product does not reflect this understanding. Being that my husband and I are from two different cultures, we had two ceremonies at our wedding (Hindu and Jewish). Knowing ahead of time that this would be a unique situation, I called to verify if this would be a problem. I was reassured that they have taken many multicultural weddings and are familiar with all of the customs. Just in case, I sent a detailed itinerary in an email before the wedding, and spoke on the phone so that all the important wedding moments were captured. Wedding day arrives. The morning of the wedding, I the bride, had to explain to the videographers what the schedule was, even though we filled out forms prior to the date of the wedding. This had to be false because in the first "Final version" of the video, many important things were left out, including PEOPLE like the mother of the bride, grandparents and brother of the bride. At the reception, the cake cutting piece was simulated, as they informed us that the actual cake cutting was missed due to the videographers eating dinner. However, they had the schedule ahead of time. One thing that bothered me most of all, was that my entrances for both ceremonies were taken from a horrible angle, and my husband's reaction was very briefly captured. Every video I have seen captures the bride's entrance beautifully. This was not the case. It was almost an afterthought. Our first version of the video arrived in October for our Sept wedding. We were thrilled at the speed. However it was sloppy, important family members were missed, and important customs were left out. We made changes which were not reflected in the 2nd version, and those same complaints were not addressed until the 3rd version in May. We were told the DVD would be ready soon. July 30th I emailed them to ask about the status. They conveniently said that it was ready that day. We received our DVD in August. Raw footage: Be prepared to miss out on a LOT. The reception video was horribly shaky and blurry. Its very disappointing. Editing can be changed, but if the footage isn't there in the raw footage, there is nothing you can do. One year after our wedding was not when we thought we would receive our product, especially after so much hassle. They barely acknowledged our complaints about the wedding day when given, but did make the changes we requested in the DVD. None of my friends had such issues with their videographers, even with videographers in this price range. Dreamlife is perhaps good for a cookie cutter, simple one ceremony wedding, but if you are looking for quality or representation of a different culture, please think twice. I only wish I could go back in time and go with a different videographer. Sure maybe we could get a refund but that wouldn't bring our precious memories back to us.
Dreamlife is beyond unprofessional and a complete waste of time. After coming in for a consultation and booking our engagement and wedding shoot with Christine, we learn two weeks before our engagement shoot they will not honor the days or times we booked. And then when we expressed frustration with this, THEY CANCEL ON US ENTIRELY 2 WEEKS BEFORE OUR SCHEDULED SHOOT. There are plenty of other companies out there who will provide much more professionalism and better services.
COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME. This company is so disorganized and backwards. After speaking by email and phone about what we were looking to do, with times and dates stated upfront. We come in and meet with Christine for a consultation. We go out of our way to go to their NY office and spend an hour going over the questions and portfolio. They refuse to do an engagement photo shoot during the weekend, and instead ask us to do during the week day and say 7am is fine. BOTH OF US HAVE DAY JOBS, thus 7am was key if we were going to have to do this on a weekday. We were fine being flexible with them and indulged their schedule. Then, 2 weeks before our scheduled engagement shoot we learn that they WILL NOT honor the time we booked and instead want us to do a weekday after 8am. We would not have been so annoyed by this, if we had not had this conversation about times and days THREE times prior to this. THEN, after we make a THIRD accomodation for them and offer to do this on a Monday at 8am they cancel US and waste even more of our time. Now we have to start from square one booking a new photographer and going through the whole process. If you can find a better company to work with I highly suggest you do. Sandy and Christine were complete nightmares to work with.
Absolutely stunning! I worked with Diana, and she went completely above and beyond with our wedding. The photos are incredible, and Diana made it an unforgettable experience!
If we could have adopted Diana, we would have done so! She became so much a part of our celebration that the bride and groom even dragged her into our photo booth! She is creative, energetic but so non-intrusive. Our pictures are the most beautiful wedding photos I have ever seen . . . and not just because it's my daughter and new son-in-law. Diana is amazing. She would do anything to get the right shot! I cannot recommend her highly enough.
I have nothing but positive things to say about Dreamlife. First off, our photographer Diana is simply AMAZING. Secondly, Dreamlife has great follow up and customer service. This is a great quality for any vendor to have, specially during the stressful planning process. The return time is also great, I received all of my proofs (without watermarks) 2 weeks after my wedding. Pricing is also reasonable with various packages to fit all needs.
Dreamlife was wonderful to work with. Having a destination wedding can be very stressful since everything is completed site unseen, but dreamlife was so great and accommodating. We worked with Diana as our photographer and could not have asked for more perfect pictures. She was absolutely amazing and helped to make our wedding day perfect!
We had used Dreamlife Photography for videography and we couldn't have been happier. Not only are they extremely talented, they make their clients feel as though their day is the most special. We have always felt well taken care of as clients and every question or concern we had was promptly addressed. Dreamlife worked efficiently, effectively and professionally the day of our wedding to make sure nothing went missed or un-captured. Our videographer made us feel extremely comfortable and he and his partner were able to capture specific moments that we had requested without question or hesitation. Their vision and artistic ability to tell a story through video is brilliant and truly beautiful. The footage captured our day perfectly and having the opportunity to relive the day through the video made the whole experience that much more special for us. Highly recommend their services as they are undoubtedly talented artist who will not disappoint!
Stunning pictures!!!Reviewed on 10/02/2015 Esther K
Ivan is a true artist with his camera! He has an eye for the most amazing lighting and backgrounds. We had an idea that he was going to be good when he did our engagement photos in Central Park and got some excellent shots, but the day of our wedding he really outdid our expectations. I couldn't wait to see the proofs, which everyone thought belonged in bridal magazines!! Thank you so much to Dreamlife and extra thank you to Ivan who made our day a magical one to remember...
Highly Recommend!Reviewed on 9/28/2015
I couldn't be happier with Dreamlife as our videographers. They are such a professional and patient team. We loved watching our video trailers. They did an excellent job editing and the clarity was perfect! We also liked that the video cameras they used were not big and bulky, which can be somewhat intimidating. In addition, they also had very reasonable prices. I highly recommend Dreamlife!
