Greetings from Vision Pro Studios and Bride & Groom Photographers.
Our 2019 and 2020 wedding season is in full swing. We have purchased new equipment and cameras for 2019 and are very excited for our clients and the results they will see.
Wedding Photography has become a EXPENSIVE part of a wedding. Having your wedding video also can prove to be expensive, and then you need a DJ for your reception. It all adds up to many thousands of dollars for top performers.
Vision Pro Studios offers complete packages when you bundle our services. Having all three services performing by the same company and for a discounted price is unheard of in our industry. We like to consider ourselves the Walmart of Wedding Services.
Our complete packages start at $1799 for Photography/Videography/DJ from start to finish of your wedding day, which includes up to 400 Hi Res Photos all edited and color graded, your video edited and color graded, and DJ with Light Show who hosts and MC's your wedding.
You will also receive a social network hi lite video, a 10 minute version, and the fully edited 1 hour video.
Add Drone Footage to your wedding for $500 more, and we will include amazing cinematic shots of your wedding day. Restrictions do apply for drone footage. Drones cannot fly within 5 miles of government buildings or airports.
Add our Premium light show for $500 and get a Las Vegas Style Club atmosphere with our lasers, gobos, and special effects to keep your reception rockin with 9,000 watts of power and music.
Add a wedding album for $350 and get a beautifully customized wedding album on 100# satin white bond paper, hard cover, and custom date and name.
All Couples who have their wedding day produced by Vision Pro Studios are featured in our Magazine "Bride and Groom", which is published once a year in the Spring.
We also are the only production company that offers a $199 down payment to secure your date. Pay just $199 down, and have up to 1 year to pay the balance of your wedding day production. Balances must be paid within 7 days of your wedding.
We offer a 100% money back guarantee. Review our contract, after making your down payment. If you are not satisfied with our agreement, we will refund your down payment, no questions asked. You have 72 hours to review the contract. After that, no refunds apply.
Lets get together and film your most important day…
Making each moment as special as the last one….
Vision Pro Studios
Michael Parker, CEO
Our typical process for working with new clients are as follows:
We like to meet in person if at all possible. If not, then by skype or phone. Once we have met, then we listen to what your trying to create, the atmosphere, the feelings behind how your wedding is to look and communicate.
The most important part of our interview process is telling us what's important to you in your photos and or video, and to tell us about you...where you met, what you did on a first date..many things that can be put into a story through photographs and video. We then create a story line and profile of photography and video that communicates to the world the reasons why this is the most important day of your lives.
We instruct the Bride and Groom at the wedding all throughout the process and timing of the photos and /or video, so that the transitions of events run smoothly. This is the specialty of our CEO Michael Parker. Michael has nearly 200 weddings he has MC'd and was the announcer of along with DJ. He worked closely with Photographers and Videographers to blend the announcements and sound with the services.
If there is a wedding planner, we work very closely with that person. If there is DJ from another vendor, we also work closely with the DJ.
Our main objective is to make the Bride and Groom comfortable, that we have the entire process worked out,and under control and want them to just be natural throughout their wedding.

How did we get started doing this type of work?
I have been doing this kind of work as a hobby nearly all of my adult life. When the Internet went live for consumers back in 1985, I was there, programming HTML and designing websites for businesses. My heart has always been in photography, and purchased my first camera when I was 13. I have learned numerous computer languages, programmed websites for many businesses in the Branch County and St Joseph County MI area, have DJ'd 100+ weddings as MC and DJ.
I was given the opportunity to DJ a event in Grand Rapids, MI for a returning POW from Czechoslovakia who was returned to the United States by President Clinton. There were 5,000 guests in attendance. We also DJ'd the wedding of Parker Bohn, Professional Bowler.
What types of customers have we worked with?
We have just opened our business, December 23rd, 2017. We have filmed and photographed 3 weddings as part of our promotional Grand Opening. Our real expertise however we feel will come later with cinematic filming of weddings who have the budget to purchase our capabilities. Our recent documentary is a testament of what we are capable of filming and producing. As we venture into filming weddings, we want to be known as a company that will work with any budget as much as we can. Weddings are special, and deserve a large amount of attention. And that's where we plan on focusing our business.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Our wedding with Amanda Bungard and Jonathan Soave was a pleasure to do. These folks hired us at the last minute after a sickness caused the cancellation of their videographer. We cut them a special price, came in the night before and reviewed the plans for the wedding and the reception with the DJ. It was a 10 hour event....but we loved it. Of coarse, the photos and the video was another 20 hours of editing...and then the production video editing.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Pay close attention to the quantity and quality of work you will receive. Companies like ours are willing to go the extra mile and do more for a client even for less money, just to get the chance to film the event. Look for passion, and someone who truly loves what they do..your relationship with them will click immediately...and your event will be a huge success.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Clients need to understand that this industry isn't buying a couple of IPads and recording the event.
There is editing time, especially for video and sound. There is image enhancement and effects. There are computer programs that technicians use that huge Hollywood producers use also...only they have the budget to produce them with literally hundreds of hours of programming and editing..and we don't have the budget to do that...yet clients want the same results. Our company uses state of the art software, and most of it could purchase a mid size car at today's prices.
So, a client should seriously think through exactly how much they want to spend, stick to their budget, and then ask what they will receive for that amount. In the $800-$1,000 price range, most photographers who are professionals at their craft, wont even get out of bed to quote a gig for that.....But we will...because we know that giving a quality filmed wedding, with the taste of cinematic added to it, along with features that some would receive in a more expensive service, will bring us more business....
So, think through exactly what you need, and compare that to what you want. Then get quotes for both....just don't forget to call us...you will be pleasantly surprised.

I have known Michael Parker for nearly 25 years. He is incredibly talented with his style of DJ entertainment. Noted for his ability to mix old school with new school music, he has a wide range of ability to actually beat mix music.
He was highly recommended as a DJ and wedding DJ when he worked for Pure Energy Productions out of Sturgis, MI. where he was a regular DJ at a local club, and traveled to do Karaoke in Michigan and Ohio.
One of the features of his ability to DJ was always keeping the event moving and involved....never a dull moment!! His experience has now allowed him to run his own business, and we are looking forward to having him as our Wedding Photographer and DJ at our wedding in Boyne City, MI. We highly recommend him and his team...you wont be sorry. More...

Vision Pro Studios has been a vital part of our Church for nearly a year, professionally producing our morning services at Good News Bible Church in Coldwater, MI. We are very proud to recommend them for any video or photography you may need More...
Our wedding was slightly over budget, and we were told that a guy from Coldwater wanted to video our wedding for free...
and he did. Michael from Vision Pro Studios of Coldwater came and did a really nice promotional service and gave us a video and printed photos of our wedding for FREE!
My wife and I were pleased with his professional service, and cannot thank him enough for his graciousness. Family members were pleased with his service as well. You never know when someone is going to do something nice for you, and Vision Pro Studios pulled through for us..thanks Michael!! More...
Michael and his team from Bride and Groom Photographers attended our rehearsal and also attended our meeting with the DJ we hired.
They were professional, courteous, and payed attention to detail. We hired them for just video, but as an added bonus, we received photos and prints of our wedding...a 13x19 Print of my husband and I..totally unexpected. We had a small problem with the format of DVD we ordered, since we had a Apple Computer, but they corrected the problem and sent the right one.
We enjoyed their company, and they remained at our reception until the very end, filming highlights all for the same price. We were very happy with the outcome. More...
