I've known Mike for a long time and have witnessed first hand his dedication to his craft. Sue is absolutely amazing at what she does as well. You can tell she has an incredible eye for beautiful shots which she has gained from years of experience. We were also lucky enough to... Read More have Sam as their 2nd shooter and he has some unbelievable talent to compliment Mike and Sue. He really came through with some great ideas and he always had the camera to his eye waiting for those perfect moments to capture. All in all they were such a great team to work with and made the whole day so much fun. They came up with the best ideas for photos and video and really made it easy for our entire wedding party. Sue and Sam were able to capture so many candid moments that Amy and I never noticed, it was really nice to look through the photos and see all those little things captured so brilliantly. The video edit Mike put together was just awesome. I knew his videography and editing skills were 2nd to none before, but what he made for us really blew Amy and I away. And he was able to sync it to a song Amy's cousin Elizabeth wrote and sang which was such a neat added bonus since she played for hour cocktail hour. In our opinion, Dropp Visual is the cream of the crop in central MN for all your photo/video needs. And they traveled down to Rochester to shoot our wedding, no questions asked. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who appreciates quality work at a fair price and the funnest group of people you'll work with through the entire wedding process. Thanks for everything Mike, Sue, and Sam, you guys are the best!

We put Mike of Dropp Visual to work capturing our wedding at the very last minute (he was supposed to be a guest!). Even on short notice he created a brilliant visual record of the day. A natural at best angles with an intuitive grasp of important details, he created a moving... Read More account of our wedding. Years later, we watch his video and even now catch nuances we previously missed. He's also a perfectionist, remixing sound to filter out the wind and get just the right quality for the song played as we walked down the aisle.
