They offer a unique approach to a traditional art, with shooting styles and packages to suit every taste and budget.

Dean Michaels has been published in more than 100 national and international publications, including People, Life, and Star magazines. They have received various awards and accolades including New Jersey Bride’s very own Love-It Award every year since 2012!

Capturing the excitement of your wedding day is their number-one goal, and they love both the traditional and the unique. In fact, one of the most unique weddings Dean Michaels photographed was the underwater wedding of a Hollywood super-agent. The couple wore a scuba tuxedo and custom-made scuba wedding dress and were married 50 feet underwater in the Caribbean.

Their unobtrusive approach allows them to capture all the special moments while staying behind the scenes. Their photographers take pride in capturing the essence of each bride and groom, and the style for each wedding is determined on the personality and tastes of each couple.

The photographers of Dean Michaels Studio have a familiarity with most New Jersey venues that allows them to craft a plan ahead of time, with the best photo locations and lighting so that you can get the gorgeous shots you’ve always dreamed of, with more time to spend with your wedding guests.

The studio also offers a full staff of professional post-production specialists to handle all of your wedding images. They have a full line of wedding albums and coffee-table books designed by their staff to help you tell the story of your wedding day. Custom packages can be created based on your individual desires. The most popular packages include two photographers, which gives you the best of both traditional and photojournalistic-style photographs to capture the individuality of each wedding.
