Lucy and Michael are two of the most talented and easygoing people I have worked with. They inspire and infect everyone with their positive energy and approach to shooting.

Dear, Lucy and Michael! Thanks to you, our day has become unforgettable and magical! Every time we watch the video, we see new trifles and moments from which the heart beats faster. You have saved what we can now show to children and grandchildren, friends, and leave such a beautiful story after ourselves for the history of our family! Photo and video, they are alive, and filled with endless feelings of love, tenderness and joy. Emotions, simplicity, and naturalness, this is what we value most! And most importantly, that our day became even more unique with your presence, we felt how you can share your shots from your own happy life! We were the main characters in the film about our love! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

My brother and I think that the whole wedding team should be communicative, intellectual, and interesting. We are always happy to recommend people that every member of a team will love working with. And working with the Dreamwood duo is one of the bright examples. Thank you for building friendly and cozy atmosphere during the work process and providing great materials afterwards. Our brides always choose listening to their hearts and our advice. And you know our opinion: we always recommend you.

Michael and Lucy, I want to leave you a tip, or rather say thank you very much for your work at our wedding, for patience during the wonderful two days, and for the fact that you took into account all our wishes in the photos and videos! Maxim and I were very pleased and comfortable working with you, and this is very important when everything coincides with such an event.
I have received the long-awaited photos and videos and have looked at them a hundred times already. It's great that we wrote this touching moment with the letters. When we watched it on the video, we nearly cried.
In general, we thank for such a memory for us !! You are cool!
Providence, appeasement of mind or bringing discipline to your thoughts, determination and desire to make art, urge to create, travel, fill our world with bright interesting adventures and events, meet interesting and unbelievable people, live, breathe in fresh air...So what connects people and leads to incredible creative collaborations that result in interesting synergetic entwinements? One of these magical unions appeared in the year 2016 on Bali. During our Asian journey, Lu and I met a very beautiful creative couple, Mikhail and Ludmila Nilovs, real-life video-wizards, more precisely – wizards-videographers. We met each other for the first time on a meditation retreat in Thailand, but no one could even imagine that we would engage in such an exuberant collaboration so soon. A month later, we found out from our friends that Michael and Lucy are very professional videographers and we decided ask to work on a music video for our friend and very talented musician Dniil Yole. The Dreamwood duo loved the idea. And then it started...Space came to life, started swirling in creative whirl of events...We worked on this clip for two months, facing different challenges and provocations together and then, it was finally time to show our clip for the first time. Now Lu and I think about the time we worked with these incredible radiant artists with nostalgia. Michael and Lucy are good people and great professionals; they work in wedding video industry and do their job with love and attention. They lend their souls to every project. And, to be honest, being in movie-video industry for a long time, we haven’t met such powerful Artists (with a big “A”) in this genre before. Thank you, friends! Kos, Lu and Teya.

We just watched the movie together - we decided to write after watching all the material!)))) And we are delighted, I like again all this day experienced, even cried several times again)
You are real professionals, shots stunning and sound tracks are cool, everything is cool mounted and it was interesting to watch!
Andrew, despite his relatively even attitude to all sorts of things, is also sooo happy and looked at everything with pleasure)
I am happy that you were able to catch and convey that atmosphere, the feelings and emotions that we so wanted to share with everyone and remember for life! With you it was incredibly pleasant and warm, you radiate such a good energy !!!
You have made us the most special and expensive gift, thank you for this! We congratulate you with Andryusha on the new year and wish you harmony and a sense of universal love, amazing trips and bright projects, as well as realizing all your talents and skills! Let the new year be joyful and cheerful !!!
We remember the very first impressions after watching a video, no, a movie by Dreamwood – it was like one beautiful moment, caught on camera and edited. Because it was delicate, soulful, paying attention to completely unexpected moments! When a couple understands beauty in the same way, when they are both in love, they are able to show love of others unforgettably. Michael and Lucy can do it. And we saw a lot of artists in Weddywood.

We love it! Very cool dynamics, atmosphere, and selected music. Like moments, looks, and the ending even after 100 viewing makes the heart start! Very cool! Copter did his job and that is great! It's great that it was possible to place it all as though the whole day in three minutes. From morning to such a beautiful sunset! And my errands on the grass did not stay aloof. We looked at the photos! Many thanks to Lucy! It's very cool! Colors, camera angles, processing! Very cool! Thank you very much - great work!

Michael and Lucy are great professionals and delightful people. With them one can leave all the worries about results behind – they love what they do and pay attention to every detail. And, of course, they have their own unique style of filming and photographing.

We invited Mikhail to shoot a video for the project "The Forest Song" because we couldn’t find professionals of this level in our country. The preparations were very thorough; Dreamwood paid attention to every small detail. As the result, we got an incredible work of art. Thank you!

We organize many events, and therefore, we are constantly looking for talented people for making projects together. I remember the first time we saw the guys’ works on the Internet several years ago. We liked their style and view of the world. Their photos and videos were filled with so much warmth and kindness that we immediately wrote to them to find out more about their duo. And since then, our communication developed into something more than just business relationships. They are incredibly talented, easygoing, and very responsible, which is very important these days. Because everyone can say that he/she can shoot well, but only the best can really do it. We love working with Ludmila and Mikhail!!! They are similar to us in many ways, great team workers, and always try to do everything as beautifully and professionally as possible. And it’s not important what we shoot: wedding, workshop or just a creative project. We are always confident that the guys will provide beautiful photos and videos that will be filled with inspiring ideas and love.
It’s obvious that Ludmila and Mikhail love what they do. This couple is able to capture the most important and beautiful moments in your life and they’ll do it anywhere in the world (Belarus, Russia, Italy, Spain, Thailand etc.). Guys, we are ready to travel to the ends of the earth with you!!! We love you and trust you; we recommend you to everyone. We wish you as many beautiful projects as possible and even more content clients.
It's a pleasure to work with Michael; after all, he is a true professional of his business. He always remains invisible, but always manages to capture everything - it's unimaginable! For me, the most important thing is that the videographer is not only a professional, but also a good person, and then I guessed at 100%. Michael was wonderful. I don’t usually say much about working with photographer and videographers, but I highly recommend Michael.
destination photographer & bloger
I remember meeting Lucy and Michael on a wedding this summer! From the first moments, they seemed nice, kind, easygoing, and very likable. It’s very important for good teamwork to feel 100% comfortable and, I think, we really suit one another. I liked both their attitude to work (attention to details, ability to understand and communicate with clients) and results we got at the end! They have a unique and beautiful view of the world, great taste, and style, which is really important! And, what matters the most, they are people pleasant to communicate with, and I hope that we will work together in the future!
I do not have such words to describe our feelings for L when we first saw the result of the work of talented and incomparable Dreamwood! A sense of pride for Dreamwood, love for each other and the island ... Our dear L and M could see and feel US really and deeply. And this track in the video is after all the beating of our hearts! Yesterday, we watched the video at least 20 times. It’s addicting.

Michael and Lucy are the creative team who know how to capture one of the most important days for a couple beautifully and with great taste. They always approach their work responsibly and with attention to smallest details. They are very comfortable to work with and they always provide photos and videos of high artistic level. I wish you good luck and prosperity! :)
Jessica & Calvin
bride & groom
Then I'll write this: by a fluke, the creation of our wedding video got into the hands of these wonderful, talented, open, bright guys - Lucy and Michael! It's been more than a year since that day, and we are steadily reviewing our film. Michael is not just beautiful, he touches to the depth of his soul and makes you experience those emotions more, more and more .. the most pure and sincere emotions that the children were able to capture so skillfully. I could not even imagine that our love is so beautiful, and still our photo session, at dawn .. simple, easy, and sensual. My husband said that this was the best dawn in his life! I am immensely grateful to you and this gift of destiny - to work with you!
Top world wedding showman
I’m glad that you are reading these lines; it means that you are on the site of incredible professionals. If you need not just beautiful photos or videos but works of art, then you have found people who will make them for you. I admire these guys, their attitude to work, to people and to life in general. Warm, incredibly delightful and unbelievably kind. When I saw their wedding works, I realized that I had found the best photographers who deserved this title (believe me, because I work on weddings and see many photographers). It’s great to work with them, they are able to catch emotions and capture mood of the day in their works. I recommend this team and guarantee that you will never regret your choice!!!

I met Michael and Lucy in Bali whilst volunteering at our favorite vegetarian community restaurant. On filming day, they made us feel beautiful and comfortable, and it was easy to bring out our connection and love in the photos. I highly recommend Dreamwood!
I was lucky to work with this team-couple. And I have something to say about their work. They are great guys who are always in the right place in the right time, who manage to catch real emotions without making people act or make faces. But at the same time they are able to say or to do something to make sincere smiles appear on your guests’ faces. I have only good words to describe these guys!!! Cool, great, positive, active!!! I wish you success and the best clients.

It’s a miracle! At first we just cried, then laughed, then enjoyed our memories, and now we just want to watch it again and again!The video is incredible,;the photos are incredible; we go from one tab to another all the time when we watch them: video-photo, video-photo. It’s amazing how you could understand us, our souls. When the video ended with the “Amen” – that was it, no one could stop me. We can’t even express how grateful we are to you, how great and marvelous you and your talents are. Thank you!!! Guys, our dear guys!! We received the small box today...it’s amazing...so much joy and happiness!! We watched the video and photos for the entire evening, they are magnificent, sooooo beautiful, I can’t even express it! Our memories of this day are so incredible!
I met Michael and Lucy for the first time working on a project for Cathy Telle. Before that, I had been following their work for a long time getting inspiration from all of their projects! The guys actually are like their videos and photos – radiant, sincere and kind. These people embody a rare combination of talent and great personal qualities. It’s so pleasant and easy to be around them and results of their work exceed all expectations! I’m grateful to have had an opportunity to communicate and work with this beautiful couple. And I hope and believe that we will see each other not once in future to work on some new projects or just to talk about art!
Anna and Eugenyi

I watch it every day. We are enrapt, and it’s not just politeness or flattery. It’s beautiful, and you are just incredible artists.
We watched it on a big screen with our whole family; our parents even invited their friends to see it. Girls from Celebrate are thrilled as well. We brought the video to them and watched it together. They love you and your work; all of them are so aesthetically beautiful.
More than two years ago, I saw a Dreamwood video for the first time, and I watched it more than 10 times in a row :) I realized right away that it was something special! Pictures and compositions that don’t resemble anything. Delicate sense of music and rhythm... And, before everything else, a unique view of the world that distinguishes these undoubtedly talented guys from everyone else. I can say with confidence that Dreamwood duo creates special aesthetic products that are beyond fashion and time.
Dmitry and Maria

Guys, I have goosebumps, my heart is racing. and I have to tell you – you are so great. It’s so amazing – There are no words to describe what you did. It’s an opportunity to go back there and experience everything again. Thank you so much!!!
Top 13 showman SPB
I had an opportunity to work with the guys from Dreamwood this year, and I can say with confidence that they’re great team! They work with attention and discipline, and for me, as for a host, the communication with a videographer is very important because in our business everything is done to create beautiful moments, and it’s important to manage to catch them on camera. I also appreciate that they cooperated with me and discussed all the details and approach to the work process. As the result, not only did they make great videos for the couple, they also provided a video for me with scenes and moments that we talked about. I have only good things to say about this couple. Dreamwood are great!
What is the secret of success in any business? My favorite Robert Rozhdestvensky answered this question a long time ago – “Everything begins with love”... If you love your job and try your best, then...then it’s not necessary to say anything else. Because if something is done with love, we can see it right away. Michael and Lucy lend their souls to their works, give all their energy to get the best results. There is so much love and tenderness in their work; only people who are in love themselves could understand and convey those feelings.
Wherever Michael and Lucy go, they will always see something beautiful for our eyes and show it to us through their blog or Instagram. When you meet Mikhail and Ludmila at a wedding venue, you clearly understand that the couple has at least two great professionals in their team. I always look forward to meet Michael and Lucy who have great taste in their life, love and work.

Irina and I watched the video and looked through photos. Thank you and Ludmila so much! They’re exactly like we wanted: beautiful, romantic, touching, so graceful but, at the same time, with a lot of fun and, most importantly, so sincere! We watched the film and felt differently every time – cried, laughed... We want to express gratitude to you from our family! We are so glad that we’ve met you and that you became the part of the most important day for us. You are true professionals. We feel so much respect to you! We wish you success and prosperity in your family and business :)

I worked with Michael and Lucy several times on different events, and I know for sure that they are polite, punctual, delicate, communicative, intelligent and, of course, incredibly creative people with magnificent sense of beauty. I would definitely trust them to shoot any, even the most intimate moments of my life, because I know: it will be delicate, sweet and beautiful.
Anastasia and Alex

I watched it 10 times already, and I can’t stop crying. Everyone who watched the video says that it’s awesome!! I can't express how lucky I am to enjoy your work! Mikhail!!!!! This is so cool!!!! We are in tears and with smiles on our faces!!! This is fantastic! I’m ready to watch it again and again!
It doesn’t happen often that it’s comfortable for me, as for a photographer, to work with a videographer on a wedding. It doesn’t happen often that videographers are able to understand mood of a couple during such a tense (at times) day, that they are able to support, guide, cheer up and to be on the same page with couples in general. And it’s worth much, trust my experience. It’s easy with guys. Not because they are “easy,” but because they are professionals. Good luck!
Tony & Diana

We don’t find ourselves in front of a camera together too often. Our relationships are very intimate for us. In our couple we are, firstly, friends. As to our relationships as a man and a woman – it’s very unusual for us to demonstrate them to other people. That is why it was so important to choose the right photographer. This should have been a person whose mind would be attuned to ours. And Michael and Lucy are exactly people we looked for. They respond to clients very quickly; they are nice and interesting to talk to. It’s very easy to work with them. Calmness, air of inspiration and serenity - that is what we plunged into during the photo shoot. At the same time, they radiated admiration and excitement from the beauty of the present moment. Most importantly, they really love what they do. We chose the time, location, and the clothes for the photo shoot so attentively and reverently that everything was perfect. Thank you so much, guys! You inspire us with your professionalism, creative approach, and attitude to your job and to life. We wish you success in your projects, unexpected and promising offers and, of course, moments of inspiration! And we will watch our photos and recall that beautiful sunny day that was captured with your cameras.
I'm totally ecstatic about the video. So many emotions, feelings, and love in it. I really like how the terrestrial and aero frames are rhythmically changing, simultaneously showing the beauty of the legendary town of Sirmione and the beauty, experiences of the couple, combining into a single story. Great video. Well done!
The film and the clip are incredibly cool, sincere, exactly like we dreamt to see them. You put life into your work. Just take the scene where my dad walks me down the aisle and looks in the camera. It’s touching, tender, and dramatic at the same time. We watched both the film and the clip about 20 times. Parents, friends, grandparents--everyone is in awe. Michael and Lucy, thank you for these memories.
Lucy and Michael usually work as wedding videographers, but when I saw their video, I wanted the same cinematic shots, this tender light, the same delicate storytelling for our family memories. I ordered a live video “a mother and three daughters,” no other instructions. Life is so swift passing that I wanted to stop the moment and preserve it in memory. We spent half a day in Thailand filming, and the work process itself was so comfortable, natural and interesting that we have only positive impressions of this experience. I wanted to continue this story a year later when I was in Phuket, but we missed each other that time. They were in Bali, alas...but I want to believe that we will meet again!
Alyona and Andrei

In our modern and constantly developing life, the Internet opens the door to the big world of information before us. Every one of us uses Internet every day. On the Internet people also find useful information, watch films, read articles about technologies, sports, travelling and, most interestingly, on the Internet people sometimes find each other. And we found Michael and Lucy this way. They say that you need only one minute to spot the person in a crowd. And it’s not a secret that we have watched a lot of photos and videos, but only one minute was enough for Michael’s and Lucy’s work to sink into our hearts. If you trust the small world of relationships and love to each other, they will give all their energy and talent so that THE FILM about you that you will watch again and again appears in your life!! But it’s not just the film...Photographs shot by Lucy are vivid, breathing, tender...their creative duo is perfect!!! Now there is a “One day story” about us in our home. And we look at the photos every day!
Maria and Dmitry
bride & groom
Michael & Lucy, I’m so impressed with the clip! This is exactly what I wanted! All the feelings and atmosphere of the day in a 5-minute video, it’s really cool! Thank you so much! You are unbelievably talented people, and I’m glad that I chose you! On the wedding day, we had some staged shootings at the beginning of the celebration, and we didn’t know what was happening next. My husband and I actually forgot that there was filming going on and that a photographer was always shooting; we just relaxed and enjoyed our wedding. When I saw what you guys made for us, I was amazed. The emotions were caught on camera so accurately and brightly; you didn’t forget a single detail – faces, style, mood! It’s incredible that you managed to express the mood of the celebration in a 5-minute video! Michael, Lucy, thank you for letting us experience the most important day for us again. Every time we watch the film and the clip, we’ll think about you with gratitude and admiration.

Guys! I’m so thrilled that I’m speechless! Photos on the flash card – I haven’t looked through all of them yet, but I’m already extremely excited!! And the box, the flash cards, printed photos – just WOW! You are so great! And we are so glad that we chose you!! Thank you so, so much, Michael and Lucy! We invited our friends and watched the video together. Our friends were so emotional. My emotions haven’t faded, and I’ve watched the video six time. It’s perfect.
