Description

About Us

We are a “boutique” wedding photography studio offering custom quality to our limited clientele. There are only three of us as the principal artists and we work closely with our clients from the start. While we strive to capture a complete photographic expression of the beauty and joy of your wedding day.

We love to capture images that reflect your personality – those personal expressions of love, commitment, and celebration from yourselves as well as your family and friends. We will work with you as a team to produce a beautiful and complete collection of images. We are generous regarding your image rights. We are dedicated full time professional photographic artists – not dilettantes – and we are at your personal service.

We treat our clients as our friends, as our colleagues: we respect them, we encourage them to inspire us, we endeavor to produce works of art together that will be enjoyed for generations. While we aren’t the least expensive studio out there, we are the most affordable studio offering the quality and personalized service we provide.

FAQs

Yes, there are only three of us and two main leads – Rebecca Haas and Gara Elizabeth Lacy. View their bios and portfolios on our website at DreamLightArt.com. Choose either one and we can arrange an in-person meeting. We are currently adding photographic artists to meet the demand.
We don’t actually have “packages”. We tailor each wedding “package” to the needs of our clients. We shoot from two hour elopements that can run $560 to 12-13 hour multiple photographer (with additional support staff also) weddings that can easily top $3500. We are as flexible or more so than any other quality studio in the metro area.
We actually love smaller, intimate weddings with personality!! If you are planning a two hour elopement style wedding during the spring or fall “wedding seasons”, then we would highly recommend your holding it on a Friday or Sunday or during the week when we are most flexible during those busy times. We would love to shoot your small event!! We don’t need huge events to provide us with artistic satisfaction. Smaller events can often beat those in that regard as they cut to heart of what our photographic dedication is all about – the unique romance, sense of commitment and the joy inherent in wedding photography. They are inherently personality-filled events that are fun and satisfying for us to cover.
You bet!! We are in fact left with no rights whatsoever to your images – they are all yours – totally! And we expect you to enjoy them to the max and are happy to offer our professional advice on how to best do so for lasting professional prints to frame and keep forever or for fun prints for your fridge. Either way, you will get a bargain on your prints. For your framed prints, we refer to one of the finest professional labs in the country that we have been with since their inception. They will provide you with excellent professional printing service at bargain prices – it is what they do. In your interest, we forgo being a middleman in your enjoyment of your images. You may as well deal with the experts in that area directly for way better service and prices - both.
We all carry redundant equipment – like two camera bodies and several lenses and several flash systems. We all bring both on-camera and umbrella lighting with backups to any photo shoot. And at least one of us is always held back on busy days in case of an emergency back-up need. In addition, we have been in this business professionally for a long time and can call on many capable talents in the city if necessary. We work closely with several other professional talents in the metro area that currently don’t show on our portfolio page. This is one of the advantages of going with a truly professional, dedicated, tight-knit artistic group with a ton of experience under their belt. We know better than to try and go it alone on your wedding day without extensive backup capabilities built into our organization.

    Absolutely Stunning and The Best!

    Gara and Guillermo are absolute jewels to work with! They are so friendly and flexible based on what we wanted for our special day. Gara was amazing a...t taking our photos. She told us exactly how to pose which calmed my nerves down during our engagement session. She made us laugh and was just super easy to get along with! Guillermo is a very fast responder which is amazing and always answers my questions to the fullest extent. He made us feel as if he is there for us and made the experience feel personal to us. We felt heard in the process! I will always recommend Dream Light Art Photography to all my friends and family. I cannot wait until our wedding day to see more of their work because they are absolutely fantastic at making memories through their photos.

    The Most Beautiful Pictures

    I cannot say enough good things about Dream Light Art! Rebecca was our primary shooter and Gara was our secondary shooter and they were both wonderful.... All of our pictures turned out so beautiful, I don't know how I'm going to narrow it down and pick favorites! We got back over 1500 pictures in just over a month, which was such a quick turnaround time and every single photo looks incredible. I wish I could give more than 5 stars!! I would highly recommend them to anyone!

    Wedding Photographer

    Guillermo and Warda were our Dream Light Art Photographers for our wedding this past October. They were exceptional and the photos were STUNNING!!! Gu...illermo made sure we went over every detail so we got exactly what we wanted. They were with us all day since our ceremony was fairly early and even rode the party bus with us. Guillermo was so kind and patient and Warda was so sweet! She held my dress all day. Definitely choose Dream Light Art!!

    Photos with Rebecca

    The photos taken by Dream Light Art were beautiful. Rebecca was so patient and did not hesitate to offer her suggestions. This is important to me sinc...e I didn't want to deal with placement and know what looked good and what didn't. It was the best experience and it made things seamless.

    You’d be lucky to work with them!!!

    Dream light was a great company to work with for our wedding. Starting from the beginning, Rebecca did a wonderful job shooting out engagement picture...s and they came out nice. Guillermo was who we communicated most with for the planning of our wedding. We had to reschedule twice because of covid, but he was easy and flexible with doing so. Gara was the lead photographer for our wedding day and she was absolutely outstanding. She exceeding all expectations! She brought an assistant in addition to the second photographer. Gara was energetic, friendly, and assertive when needed but she never imposed and was never rude or demanding. She has wonderful ideas for pictures and poses and allowed everyone to have fun while doing it. She is a hard worker; laying on the ground for some shots, on her knees, up in a tree, in the bushes, whatever it took!!! Nora was the second photographer and she was also amazing. She was great at making the little ones look at the camera and smile or laugh. Great experience and Guillermo, who did the editing and color processing, did an incredible job and all of our images turned out amazing. Great quality!

    Outstanding Customer Service and Value

    We absolutely loved working with Guillermo and Rebecca! They went far and above on all fronts and we hadnt made it easy. We hired them on short notice... after replacing our original more expensive photographer when we found out we had to pay our original photographer per individual photo even for social media files and extra for edited images. With Dream Light we had 1400+ images in multiple quality sizes all color graded and made available as part of their standard package. When confusion about the hours came up from our end and shifted last minute they adjusted and offered a few solutions that would be a loss for them to make it all work out. On the day of Rebecca was amazing working seamlessly with our videographer to get all the important shots and we were amazed with all the candid work she got throughout the evening we would never have seen. She made the bride and the guests all feel comfortable and was very quick and kind. I was a little distracted during the ceremony but I have no clue how she managed to move around and get some of the angles she did without causing any distraction or disturbance. Then Guillermo got all the images edited and back to us in less than a month which was amazing compared to the average of 1 to 3 months our wedding planner told us to expect. We cannot recommend them highly enough. You will not find a better value of kindness and skill anywhere near their price.

    Fantastic team for an affordable price

    I am so happy with my wedding photos from September 2021! Rebecca was my primary photographer and Gara was a secondary with Guillermo doing all of the... photo editing after the date. The day of team was fantastic to work with - we set a schedule via email prior to the date since I was coming in from out of town and both photographers were timely and very professional throughout. They were also a good balance to each other, each with different ideas about lighting and location - they helped capture some AMAZING moments! Despite rain, my photos and all of the colors are fantastic because of the way the images were taken and the way Guillermo had them edited! I would absolutely choose this group again (not to mention how affordable they are and how they will work with your budget to get you exactly what you want & need!)!

    Definitely Recommend for Engagement Photos!

    My fiancé and I met at WashU, so we wanted to do an engagement photoshoot there, and the photos came out amazing! Gara was very accommodating and eve...n met us bright and early at 6AM to shoot a sunrise photoshoot. She was very detailed and told us exactly how to pose. Guillermo was also very responsive in getting our edited photos back to us in a short amount of time. We love our photos and couldn't be happier with how they came out! Thank you Gara and Guillermo!

    Best Wedding Photography Company you can purchase

    From start to finish we were blown away by how amazing not only Guillermo was at setting up the contract and editing all of the 1300+ photos but our p...hotographer was absolutely amazing. She captured everything and more. She went to Forest Park with us after the ceremony and captured where I proposed, and then just ran around the entire reception capturing everyones excitement and truly busted her butt to make sure every aspect of our special day was caught for a memory of a lifetime! 10 out of 10 highly recommend.

    Captured every moment perfectly!

    The fiancée and I were looking for a local photographer for engagement and wedding photos. We ran across Dream Light Art on Google and contacted the...m. Guillermo was very easy to work with in making plans for both of them. We had Gara for a photographer for both occasions. She had plenty of good ideas for the engagement photos and they came out really good. She did the same for the wedding! Gara made sure to capture every moment of the wedding and reception afterwards. We even made stops on the way to the reception to take more pictures. You can tell Gara loves what she does because she has that energy that only comes from doing what you love.

    Phenomenal

    ?This is the photographer for you! Look no further! I can't recommend Dream Light Art Photography enough. Guillermo is so responsive and accommodating.... His skills with editing and color processing are unparalleled. Rebecca Haas has such attention to detail and is exquisite with posing direction. Rebecca even went 20 minutes over on her time for shooting our engagement session, ensuring that she included all of the poses I sent her in email attachments.

    You get all the rights to your images, 3 different sizing formats (for social media sharing, printing, wall prints, etc.), file shares via a dropbox, and a flashdrive with all versions of your photos. They absolutely give you it all, with quality, at a VERY affordable price!

    We had a bad experience with a previous photographer and lost out on a HUGE deposit. Don't let DLA be your redemption photographer - choose DLA first! Rebecca Haas was our engagement photographer, and Gara will be our wedding photographer. ?

    Friendly, Affordable and High Quality

    We absolutely loved our experience with Dream Light Art photography. We used them for both our engagement and wedding photos. Rebecca and Guillermo ar...e amazing at what they do. Rebecca was super friendly, helpful and super easy to work with for our wedding. She kept us organized and made sure we got the photos we wanted and they were just beautiful. We went to multiple sites to take photos and Rebecca kept everyone smiling and on time. She was able to capture the energy and love on the best day of our lives. Guillermo did a fantastic job with editing them and sending them to us quickly. We couldn't have asked for a better photography team. We highly recommend them!

    The best in the business. Top notch quality at an affordable price.

    We got married last year during Covid. Of course we were stressed out but after meeting Guilermo I knew everything would turn out perfect and it did....

    They were very easy to get a hold of and work with before the wedding and day of. I was able to give direction as to what kind of pictures I wanted and they also had some amazing ideas. The photos turned out great and I was very impressed. We had a large wedding party. Guillermo stayed calm, organized and fun during the entire process.

    I feel like we found the perfect photographer for our amazing wedding. I still can't believe how many great moments they caught. Looking back I know that we got an incredible deal.

    Any couple looking for the best, you found them! They are amazing people and make the process so much fun.
