We highly recommend American Dream Camera for any photography needs especially weddings! We found American Dream Camera on Thumbtack, based on the positive reviews and ADC website. We decided to reach out and book an appointment to see if it would be a good fit for our wedding day. Booking the appointment was very easy, we received response immediately. Upon meeting Tatyana we knew all systems were go! Tatyana is an amazing person and we just had to have her be part of our wedding day. Tatyana was well prepared she brought wedding albums and all paperwork required to the meeting. The discussion of pricing (reasonably priced), contract, and terms were smooth and pleasant, we were confident with moving forward. She answered all of our questions with an upbeat excited attitude, she clearly had a lot of experience and a fun energetic yet professional personalty! We couldn't wait to see how she would capture our day.
Tatyana remained in constant communication with us the entire time, from asking for the initial appointment to receiving our final photos, that really amazed us! We really felt confident she understood what we desired and also a balance of letting her run with her own artistic creativity. Her experience with Catholic weddings helped put us at ease as there are certain restrictions for photography in the church.
We got way more than we bargained for with Tatyana and American Dream Camera!!! Tatyana had back up equipment, we had her for several hours including getting ready time, and the reception she was willing to go above and beyond to capture our day. Tatyana was the number one professional presence at our wedding, she surprisingly set the tone and timing for our entire day, far exceeded our expectations we were so impressed! When things may have gone off of our plan she never ever showed any signs of stress or frustration, she honestly is an inspiration, to see her work under pressure, take control to stage a photo opt or capture a particular moment was phenomenal. Tatyana is an absolute joy to work with, we are so grateful she took us on as clients.
We were beyond elated when we received the photos (we received all photos in digital form small and large files via disc in the mail. Oh and a really cool slide show with music of our choice! - online and on disc!!!) from American Dream Camera, the photos Tatyana took evoke so much emotion, she is so incredibly talented and an amazing artist she is able to capture the small details and the big picture. I am really happy we gave Tatyana more freedom than restrictions when creating our wedding book and capturing the day because we honestly feel we received a better result. Our wedding book will be forever cherished and we will be forever grateful to Tatyana for such a fun day and lifelong memories. If we could heed any caution to readers, it would be, to not wait! Reach out to American Dream Camera asap to discuss your needs, we met with way too many photographers and stressed out way too long over finding the right photographer, all our worries went away when we booked Tatyana!
