Christi Curtis is absolutely AMAZING! My wedding was on Oct. 19th, 2013 at the Vinoy in St. Petersburg, FL. I currently live in Charlotte, NC so planning my wedding from a distance was more than a little stressful, but having professional and experienced vendors that truly know what they are doing and truly care has made all of the difference. I had so much fun with Christi on our phone calls leading up to the wedding, talking about photo ideas and on the day of the wedding I made the mistake of telling her (a photographer) that I hated taking pictures. She told me that surprised her because I was doing so good with all of the photos that we had to take that day! And I was doing good because of her. She makes you feel at ease and gives you great direction, which I definitely needed. I just got my photos back and they are so incredible. I couldn't be more thankful for her and Limelight. So, THANK YOU! - Heather Powers
Heather I am so PLEASED to hear that you felt comfortable with Christi - that is the most important thing for us to capture great photographs and create beautiful portraits. Thank you so much for sharing your experience!
We were very happy with Limelight photography for our wedding at the Tampa Airport Marriott. The entire team was very professional, and friendly. We were happy with the personal attention that the team gave us (our photographer Ann and Rebecca and Michael). We were so excited when they invited us back for additional photos at the Sun and Fun air museum for even more pictures with actual airplanes and other props including a vintage motorcycle and butterfly garden!!!
We give them the highest recommendation for wedding photography!!
I am from NJ and was also getting married in NJ. However, my husband's cousin was from Tampa and used Limelight photography as her photographer in 2008. I can honestly say this cousin had the most beautiful wedding pictures I had ever seen. EVER. Once my husband and I got engaged there was not a question as to who the photographer was going to be. I didn't care that Rebecca and Michael lived in FL. Rebecca said she would travel and NJ was not out of her comfort zone. I was willing to pay for her to come all the way to NJ because I knew she was the best, even after considering all of the photographers in NYC and NJ combined. Rebecca had not seen the venue until the day of the event because it was all the way up in NJ. I wasn't even worried because I knew how talented her and Michael were. And boy was I still surprised...They blew every expectation I ever had for them out of the water. They used the venue in such creative ways for shots that came out making my husband and I look like movie stars. I recommend these photographers to everyone I know no matter where they live and no matter what their venue may be. Nothing is too challenging for Limelight Photgraphy!!!
Rebecca from Limelight was our wedding photographer and there just isn't enough room in this box to explain how amazing she was.
From the planning process to getting our wedding pictures back, working with her was a dream. She was wonderful to communicate with, always very responsive and was great at taking the requests I had for the overall look of my pictures. Halfway through our pictures on my wedding day my fiancé and I both said to each other how Grateful we were that we had hired them. Without even seeing the pictures we Knew they were going to be amazing. We had a very large wedding party (a wonderful but Very rambunctious group) and Rebecca and Michael were amazing at getting everyone organized and exactly where there needed to be. They were totally prepared with shot lists and names so we were able to fly through our pictures. After getting our pictures back, we are even more blown away. Every single one of them looks like it is straight out of a magazine. We have about 1000 pictures and we might frame every one of them for our house because you just can't find a bad one.
I will also say how impressed I am with the turnaround time. Most of my friends who have been married recently say it took about 6 weeks to get their pictures back. We had our pictures in 2 1/2 weeks which is just unheard of. On top of all of that, Rebecca spends the time to submit the photos to different publications for possible publishing. Most of my bride friends say they spent hours and hours putting together submissions trying to get into magazines. 3 weeks after my wedding, Rebecca's submissions have already been accepted by 2 publications.
Limelight was without question the best money we spent on our wedding. We literally relive every moment of that day when we look at our pictures. You will not find anyone better then them!
My husband and I were extremely pleased with Limelight Photography and our amazing photographer, Jess Orthober!! During the hectic times of planning our wedding, the people at Limelight were always on top of things and kept us on schedule, which we greatly appreciated!
Jess was the most pleasant, patient, and cheerful wedding photographer that I've ever encountered. I've been to a ton of weddings; wedding photographers can be difficult and, at best, grumpy: always rushing guests and family members around, always barking out commands. However, not Jess, she was absolutely wonderful from start to finish! Everyone loved her! She captured modern, crisp, and clean images, adding her own creative touches throughout. The pictures are a thousand times better than I could have ever imagined!
Your wedding will happen SO quickly, you will hardly have time to take in anything! Do yourself a favor and invest in a good photographer. The wedding will only be a few hours but the photographs will last a lifetime.
We could not be more satisfied with Jess and Limelight Photography!
My husband and I are so happy that we chose Limelight to be our photographer for our wedding. Our investment was worth every penny. We worked with our photographer Ann for our engagement photos so it made the transition into our wedding day that much easier. The organization and attention to detail made all of our pictures turn out amazing! The quality of the pictures that Limelight produces are truly amazing! I cannot wait to share our photos and to get our photo album made. Ann and her crew were wonderful and easy to work with and Michael and Rebecca were great in helping us stay connected and organized all during the planning process. I love working with a company that puts God first and you can truly tell that He has guided and blessed their business! So happy to have worked with them for our wedding day and would highly recommend them to any couple planning their wedding!!
Limelight is hands down the BEST! We got married in Key West, FL but we live in NYC and had to find a photographer online. We used Michael and Rebecca and they are beyond amazing! The second I spoke to Michael on the phone he made me feel at ease and it was like he read my mind with everything that mattered to me. He spent 2 hours on the phone with me explaining all the details of the package and gave me a potential minute by minute timeline of the day. Most of all he made me feel like he cared more about me than anything else. Rebecca was extremely thorough and spent multiple phone sessions with me 1 month before my wedding going over each and every single photo I wanted and the photography timeline she put together. The best part is that you know going into your wedding day that they will do everything you want and you just have to sit back, relax and enjoy your special day. They are attentive, detail oriented, organized, efficient and most of all loving! They told us where to go, how to pose, and what to do. They gave us direction and had a game plan for the entire day. They made it easy to take pictures on such a long, hot and sweaty day in the Key West heat. They were fun and upbeat and did everything to capture the style of pictures we wanted. They grabbed me when they saw an opportunity for a photo I had previously asked for, and they made it quick and seamless so we did not miss any part of the party. We had our photos less than 3 weeks after our wedding and they are ABSOLUTELY outstanding photos. Their quality is top notch and people are astounded at the beauty and quality of my photos. I was able to download all my photos easily and save them onto my computer so I can easily share them and order prints from where I want. Their blog will show you the quality of their work and their ability to create gorgeous images for whatever style you want. I literally want to print every single photo they are so perfect. They have a passion for photography and it shows!
From the beginning, Limelight Photography was nice and caring about our wedding. They wanted to know all the details and work with our budget. We were assigned to Jess and Erica as our photographers for our special day. Jess contacted us throughout the months leading towards our wedding and made me feel comfortable that we made a good choice. When it was our wedding day, the three girls were so nice and motivating. Jess directed all of us with ease and said, "Shimmy!" a lot. Which made me laugh! When we got our photos, they were absolutely amazing. We have friends that say that they wished Limelight was in Illinois. Most of our friends said that they definitely put us in the limelight and that we have the best pictures of all. Thanks Limelight, Jess, and Erica for capturing our wonderful day! We truly appreciate it.
What can I say, Limelight is the best of the best, and you will not find a more elite photography team than Michael and Rebecca Zoumberos. Not only are they professional in every way but they also are beyond personable and fit right in with your wedding party and guests. They are the one vendor that our family and friends are still raving about. They are very organized and know how to handle large (rowdy) wedding parties to ensure they capture every shot. They will capture every detail you’ve dreamed of and even those that you missed. Our pictures came out absolutely stunning and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. If you are looking for timeless photos capturing every detail of your dream wedding, look no further, you’ve found it in Limelight Photography.
I am from Indianapolis, Indiana but we decided to get married in Sarasota, Florida on May 9, 2014. Weddings are hard enough to plan but to plan a wedding 1000 miles from home is even harder. Jess Orthober was my photographer and she made the planning process SO MUCH EASIER! She went above and beyond and was even willing to help me iron out the details of the limo picking up the wedding party and the guests and still getting to the venue on time! More importantly, on the day of the wedding she made me feel so relaxed and at ease. She was fun, full of energy, creative, talented and yet professional at the same time! When I got my photos I was SHOCKED at how AMAZING they were. Another thing that I loved about Limelight is that Jess had 2 associates with her to help photograph every moment. Pictures were taken from every angle and nothing was missed! Absolutely amazing!
Lauren, Thank you so much for your feedback! Congratulations to you and Kameran on your marriage! Your wedding as beautiful and I love the wish lanterns! I am thrilled you loved your experience In The Limelight and with Jess!
Wedding photos are a priority that can only truly be appreciated in hindsight; there are no second chances. If you feel that capturing your memories in an exquisitely poetic and dramatic way is essential; there is no other choice.
Thank you Maria and Arthur for your kind words! You were a joy to work with. Gob Bless you both! xo
One of my friends recommended Limelight to me for my wedding day after she had an amazing experience with them. I could not have been more pleased with the QUALITY of work that they do and how EFFICIENTLY they do it. They are extremely quick to respond and on the day of the wedding they made sure to get every picture I wanted. I specifically worked with the photographer Sarah – she is amazingly talented and has a serious artistic eye. Her photos (and Limelight’s in general) are more than just wedding photos – they are pieces of art and I am so thrilled that my wedding photos came out as STUNNING as they are. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Limelight and more specifically Sarah for your photography needs.
From the start, we knew beautiful photographs were at the top of our list because we wanted to be able to relive our wedding day over and over again. We cannot say enough about how fantastic our experience was with Limelight. Rebecca and Michael were so fun to work with! While I cannot put a price on our wonderful experience and photographs, they were more than willing to work with our budget. I especially want to thank Rebecca for locating our limo when we were running super late for the ceremony. Even amidst all the crazy chaos, Rebecca was calm and proactive! A much needed combination for any bride ☺
Throughout the entire process, Michael and Rebecca were courteous, professional, and organized. There is something to be said about a husband and wife team who work together so effortlessly to capture the essence of love and two families joining together. We received our photographs in less than three weeks. They are absolutely stunning and transport us back to the magic of our wedding day! We will cherish them forever. Thank you Rebecca, Michael and Limelight Photography!
Rebecca and Michael are just phenomenal! Everyone needs to Step Into The Limelight!
They are such an amazing team and we love everything about them! We were so blessed and ecstatic to have them as our photographers for our wedding on 1.4.14 at the Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota, FL. They did an amazing job of capturing everything and they were incredibly professional throughout the whole wedding! We love them so much and highly recommend them to anyone else looking for photographers. They are funny, loving, helpful, professional, caring, precise, and just top of the line incredible! We plan to stay in touch with them throughout the rest of our lives! We cannot thank them enough for all they have done for us.
WE LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!! YOU TWO ARE THE BEST!!! WE ARE FOREVER THANKFUL TO YOU BOTH FOR CAPTURE OUR WEDDING SO BEAUTIFULLY!!!
Emilia & Christian
Honestly I cannot say enough great things about Limelight Photography – if I could give more than 5 stars I would! From start to finish Limelight was so easy and professional to work with. Limelight was at the top of our budget but they were worth every penny spent, the memories they captured in beautiful photos is without a doubt priceless. Sarah did an absolutely amazing job; she was highly responsive throughout the entire process and was always there to answer any question I had. She exceeded all expectations at the wedding, I honestly felt like she was another family member in the room sharing in some of my most intimate moments. She truly understands the importance of those moments and to have those moments captured on film is such a treasure. Her assistant Jess did an amazing job photographing my husband and his groomsmen and has special talent when it comes to working with children (it’s not easy to get all the little kids to pay attention and smile – but she somehow managed to do just that). I would highly recommend Limelight to anyone getting married. When all the planning, prepping and the wedding is over – all you are left with are the photos of the very best day of your life that you can cherish for a lifetime. The photography from our wedding is remarkable and booking Limelight to handle one of the more important elements of our wedding was one of the best decisions we made!
My husband and I were referred to Limelight by a co-worker and we are so happy that we took the time to meet with Michael. It was obvious from the start that he and Rebecca take great pride in their business and the happy moments that are captured by his photographers. One of the most important expenses for our wedding was the photography and based on the quality of work that was provided it was well worth the money!
Ann and Sam were so wonderful to work with, so calm and always in the right place at the right time. While the guys were getting ready Sam kept them on their toes laughing. Ann's attention to detail with the type of photos she took was great.
We were so shocked to receive our photos just two weeks after wedding, and we continuously look at them in awe. The work they provide is stunning! We both loved that some of the photos were in black and white, what a sweet surprise. We would absolutely recommend Limelight to anyone looking for a great photography team.
Thank you so much Melissa!
I fell in love with the entire Limelight team the moment I saw their work and knew I had to have them shoot our wedding. Heather Kline and her team were absolutely amazing to work with and so easy! They were very professional, took charge when needed, and spoiled my husband and I. I am obsessed with ALL of our wedding photos! We've had them for a week and I've probably looked through all 1600 at least 5 times. I would recommend Limelight Photography to every single person I know! Thank you all so much for capturing all of the special moments of the most important day of our lives!!
Amazing! Awesome! Limelight was extremely professional and the most prompt of all of our vendors with any questions we had. Heather was our photographer on the day of and was absolutely great and her work is even better. Their work speaks for itself and they truly have a phenomenal photography style. Our guests love our photos and we are extremely happy with the photos.
Our wedding was on November 17th, 2013. We stepped into Limelight a few months ago. Our wedding coordinator recommend Elizabeth Craig from Countryside Country Club us a few. At first, we were skeptical about the prices, but once we had our first appointment with Michael Zombrero and he showed us there pictures samples. We saw that the quality of their work was great. And that they were serious about their business. So, my fiance back then who's now my lovely husband, convinced me to do it. We have to wait to receive our wedding pictures, but we already had our engagement photos taken. I will have to say that the were amazing. Our photographer was Heather and her assistant Claudia. She is the most sweet, loving, and easy to work with person. She is very creative during the photo shoot. You can tell that she loves what she does and that she goes to work prepared. During our engagement pictures shoot, Heather was very prepared. She knew what she was doing & helped us with the poses and everything. She was also very flexible and great with calling you back..etc. Jonathan and I are very satisfied with the service that we received from limelight. Thanks you Heather for being so patience with me special on the day of the wedding. We were a little late to the ceremony because our some of the bridal party girl a were not ready. And I started to have a break down for the fist time in a year. But Heather was amazing she talked to me and calmed me down. She made me feel better during all the chaos that was going around in the room. I cannot wait to see our wedding photos. It can be a little pricy, but its worth it you only get marry once. And the only memories that you can keep of that day are the photos. Is a good investment.
My husband and I were married at the Ocean Key Resort last September (almost a year ago!) and it was the most amazing day. I owe a large part of that amazement to Rebecca and Michael of Limelight Photography. They were incredible. So professional, kind, caring, and just the best photographers I have ever met. I look at our pictures quite often and every time I look at them, I think how beautiful they look and Michael and Rebecca did an amazing job. I am so happy with their service and would highly recommend them to anyone and everyone!!! Before we booked Limelight for our wedding, Michael spent about 30-45 minutes with me on the phone explaining everything and answering any question that I would have. Their customer service is incredible and I booked Limelight that night because I was so impressed! I wish we could get married all over again because it was such a wonderful experience :-)
