We went with Limelight for our big day and we're so happy we made the right choice! We love Limelight for the following reasons: 1. Everyone we came in contact with from Limelight was always professional. 2. The initial consultation over the phone with Rebecca was extremely thorough. 3. The engagement session was included in the fee. 4. Jess was a doll to work with and no matter what we threw at her (and there were a lot of curve balls...e.g., change of venue, early morning engagement session on THANKSGIVING DAY, off-site bridal party photos during cocktail hour, etc.) she always kept her cool and did a wonderful job! 5. We received our engagement photos and our wedding photos within 3 weeks of the event date. 6. Regretfully, a videographer was out of our budget, but Limelight did such a great job with capturing the wedding, we didn't need a video. We have so many different angles and candid shots! 7. They created a day-of-timeline for me that kept everyone on track and they also created a family portrait lineup so that we did not forget anyone during the event. 8. All of my questions/concerns were timely and adequately addressed. 9. They did a phenomenal job editing the photos. Really great work! If you're having doubts about who to go with, take a look at Limelight's website and or Facebook page - thats what I did! Thanks Limelight! The Carter's
Everything that was promised to us in the “sales meeting” is EXACTLY what we received and more. If I had a question about something, they answered it quickly and it didn’t matter if it was photography related or not. Anne and Dafne were our photographers and so pleasant to work with. Anne photographed our engagement session in downtown St. Pete at the sundial mall. I never thought I would be obsessed with looking at our pictures over and over, but I catch myself going through them all the time. I love showing them off. I knew their pictures were beautiful, but when I saw my pictures, I knew I was in good hands. She even incorporated the rain into the engagement pictures and they are still beyond perfect! So the wedding pictures are beyond anything I could even imagine, even with the rain and not so good weather that day. I love everything about them. Anne captured my getting ready moments while Dafne captured the grooms, and both captured every special moment of our day. We received our pictures within three weeks as promised. I’m ecstatic to build an album with them! I recommend every bride and groom to step into the Limelight!
perfect for a reasonReviewed on 2/05/2015 Allison S
You can look and many photographers and companies around the Tampa Bay area and mostly you will find good places to choose from. If you want GREAT photos, the best experience, and quality that will last a lifetime then choose LIMELIGHT! I have been told by many brides that they regretted the photographer they had. There is a reason this company and photographers have perfect reviews. Because they ARE PERFECT! The entire experience was perfect from start to finish. Michael made me and my fiance feel so comfortable. He went over all the packages and worked with our budget. I never once felt pressured or felt that I wasn't able to get the perfect package for us. I found myself becoming more and more excited the more photos I saw my photographer do for weddings before mine along with Rebecca and Michael. Jess was absolutely stellar! We met her for our engagement photos and her creativity really showed through. Looking at all the photos she took I felt like any of our photos could be in an Ad campaign. The wedding was perfect. I never felt like I needed to do anything but just enjoy my wedding day. Looking at all the photos I couldn't believe the MOMENTS Jess captured. Moments I will always cherish and remember just from looking at a photo. We are having an album made along with parent albums because you want to be able to display this as art because that was she did! I couldn't recommend this company more. At least look at their website and meet with them. You will never regret stepping into the limelight :)
Limelight photography is the absolute best! I had a destination wedding and everyone I spoke with was amazing. I am so glad that I chose them for my wedding. Ann was everything I needed in a photographer. She knew what how how to picture the best moments. She captured everything!! I highly recommend Limelight. You will be very happy with your pictures.
My husband and I could not be happier with how beautiful our wedding photo's came out. Everyone at Limelight was so nice and accommodating. THANK YOU so much for perfectly capturing our magical day!!!! I highly recommend Limelight for all your photography needs!!
If you're looking for the perfect wedding photographers, look no further than Limelight! I initially heard about them from looking at all of my friends beautiful wedding photos, and when I asked them who photographed their weddings, it was always Limelight. From the initial consultation, I knew I had to have them, and they did not disappoint! They were so easy to work with and answered all of our questions. They make sure nothing is left to chance, so day of, you don't have to worry about a thing. Our lead photographer was Ann, who I actually grew up going to school with, and she is amazing. She is professional and organized and made the whole process seamless. Day of, she jumped right in taking pictures and organizing everyone to get the perfect shots. She was so great to work with and you can tell how seriously she takes her job, she makes sure all the shots are perfect. She came prepared with so many ideas of places to take pictures and helped so much with posing us, she's a total pro! We got our pictures in LESS THAN 3 WEEKS! They are absolutely breathtaking! I am honestly blown away at how great they all came out, and there are tons! I am so grateful to have so many wonderful pictures to remind us of our perfect day, and can not thank Ann and Limelight enough!
Love Love loveeeeee..... We can not say enough good things about Limelight and their team! They did our engagement photoshoot and will be doing our wedding day as well in Sept! We had a vision for wanting a beach/garden vibe photoshoot and she exceeded our expectations! Everyone that has seen our engagement pictures has had nothing but amazing things to say! We get daily compliments on their work. They are quick when it comes to emails, phone call and text messages. Super easy and fun to work with for sure. We would recommend them to anyone looking to capture their special moments! We can't wait for Limelight to capture our wedding day :)
My husband & I knew very early on that we wanted to use Limelight Photography for our wedding. They have an amazing reputation and take gorgeous photos. We were not disappointed when the big day finally arrived! Jess & Carlos were our photographers and they did beautiful work! We have a very silly group of friends, and Jess really worked well with everyone. They both had a way of capturing so many great moments throughout the night without feeling invasive. They listened to exactly what we wanted, and we could not be happier with our decision to choose Limelight!
Sarah at Limelight Photography did an amazing job at my wedding. The pictures were exactly what I wanted and she captured every moment from beginning to end. I would definitely recommend Limelight Photography!
Limelight did an amazing job on our wedding photos. They turned out amazing! Thank you to Christi Curtis our Photographer and her Assistant Photographer Sam!! Thank you to the Limelight Team also!!
We planned a destination wedding which was a little scary at times not being familiar with local vendors in Tampa. HOWEVER it was very easy for us to choose Limelight solely based on online reviews and web sites. And sweet lord am I so happy we did. Michael was so thorough and professional during the initial sales call, it was an easy and comfortable decision to make. Dafne took the time and sent us so many online albums to help us get a better idea of the specific location where we would be married. That really helped since we didn't get a chance to see the location beforehand. Carlos was our lead photographer and if I get a chance to see him again I owe him a huge hug. He was always available and in contact with me during the planning process, our timeline was laid out and confirmed well before the wedding. When he showed up on the wedding day he kept the prep process moving but had such a calm demeanor, it helped to keep me calm. He knew just how to express what he wanted from us as the bride and groom in order to get the most frame worthy shots in a short period of time. Audrey was the associate photographer and I really appreciate the detail and candid shots she and Carlos were able to capture. Carlos and Audrey did not miss a thing!! From the flower arrangements and the place cards, to the piles of seafood and macaron favors they caught every detail. I appreciate that because the wedding day felt like such a blur. I'm glad we have these pictures to look back on. We got our pictures in less than 3 weeks and it was easy to download and view everything. The difficult part will be choosing which pictures to hang on our wall. Can we print all of them???? I'd recommend Limelight to anyone. - Michelle and Eric Ouimette
My new husband (!) and I adore Limelight! From the second I spoke on the phone to Rebecca and then met with Michael in the studio, I knew we had found the best and most professional photographers in the business! There are just no words to describe how completely in awe we were when we received our photos! We were married 3/25/17 and we actually received them even faster than the 3 weeks we were quoted! What a great gift to come back from our honeymoon to open! Let me just tell you, Ann Fuentes is incredibly talented and an absolute sweetheart. She was born for this! From setting up the timeline and shot lists to the actual day of, she was amazing. An unforeseen event and major traffic issues in downtown St Pete the day of our wedding made for complete chaos when it came to transportation, and if it wasn't for Ann, I think I would've been a basket-case! She just went with it, rolled with the punches, helped us stay calm and even though I was slightly frazzled, you would never know from the photos- she captured just the right moments and emotions! Her and her associate photographer Stephanie were amazing and our photos are beautiful, timeless, artistic and just perfect. Thank you Limelight, thank you Ann and thank you Stephanie! :)
I want to thank limelight and especially our photographer Christi for doing such an amazing job for our wedding last night. Christi you were an absolute delight and pleasure to work with and have with us on our special day so we wouldn't miss a thing. From our engagement photo session to the wedding day you were on top of everything and put myself at ease. Extremely professional but also very personable. Could not ask for better!!!! Alyssa and Hunter Karass married 4/15/17 at the Powel Crosley in Sarasota FL
Absolutely outstanding! My husband and I worked with Limelight from our engagement session to our wedding and we could not be happier. Our photographer was Christi and not only is she an amazing and creative photographer she is genuinely an amazing person! I would absolutely use Limelight again!
WITHOUT a coordinator, a venue, or even an OFFICIAL wedding date set – WE CHOSE LIMELIGHT! Why did we choose Limelight without hesitation? Were we just inexperienced? The answer is simple: Limelight is a family owned business with the vision and values close to our hearts and beliefs. This was especially important to us as their mission is to serve a Kingdom Business’s mission, which is defined as, “A business that makes Kingdom Impact through influencing change within the community it serves, the people it touches, the industry it is involved in, while bringing transformation to the land.” We wholeheartedly knew that Limelight Photography shared the same vision we have making them the perfect fit to capture our vows & love for one another in a way that values & respects our beliefs. After months of emailing/speaking back & forth, it was only then at the actual wedding that we finally got to meet face-to-face! The timeline setup & execution for me (the bride) was completely executed by the photographer (Jess) which was extremely uncustomary to me even having been in 12 previous weddings. *Note to Jess & Carlos: There are truly no words worthy to express just how extraordinarily blessed & honored we are to have had the privilege of working with Jess & Carlos. They immersed themselves into our wedding & among our family & friends which enabled them to capture phenomenal perspectives of the day’s special moments. *Brides, find people/vendors who see the true beauty in the love you have for yourself & the love you have for each other* Attached are two photographs that only the following words could possibly describe: inexplicably, profoundly, esoteric, phenomenally, & wondrously. These two images capture who me & my husband are as individuals, as husband & wife, and who the passionate people were who captured those photographs. Each time I see them, I see them as I explained above. Jess & Carlos will forever be in our lives as we are reminded through their photos.
Christi Curtis and her team were phenomenal photographers for our December 2016 wedding! They were reliable and arrived promptly before start time with smiles on their faces! Christi was so nice during my bridal session and she really made sure to do what was best for my husband and I! She did not worry about the incompetent Hyatt Regency wedding coordinators or pushy members of our wedding party! She stuck to her timeline and our requests so that we were completely comfortable and happy the entire time! I am looking forward to receiving our amazing final portraits and I am expecting nothing but the best from Christi! I would definitely advise brides to prioritize photography as a "must have" because I fully believe that "one will get what she pays for"!
Limelight photography was easily one of the easiest parts of the wedding. The photographs were incredible and I recieved so many compliments on the professionalism and diligency of the team of photographers on the actual wedding day. Of course our wedding and engagement photographs were sensational and the timing of recieveing the pictures was spot on- always under 3 weeks! The best part is that you have all of the rights to your photographs! Five stars for the crew at Limelight and Sarah McDonald in particular.
Wow! That is all I can say about Limelight and especially our Lead Photographer, Jessica Orthober. We did our engagement photos and day of wedding photos with Jess. My husband and I couldn't be any happier with how all of our photos turned out. There isn't one photo (from all 1,000+) that we didn't like. She captured everything from our special intimate moments to our funny ones. We can't thank Jess, her assistant photographer, Carlos and Limelight enough for capturing our special day! Best regards, The Keim's
I am absolutely in LOVE with how gorgeous my wedding pictures turned out! I can't say enough about how unbelievably impressed I am with Limelighy photography. Rebecca and Michael Zoumberos both called and spoke to me when I first inquired about a wedding photographer. They were both genuinely interested in everything about my husband and I and how we envisioned our wedding day. It was so unexpected and I felt 100% confident going forward with them just from my initial conversation. Ann Fuentes was our primary photography and Alexia was her assistant. Ann and Alexia were absolute sweethearts and really helped relieve my nerves right before walking down the aisle. All of our photos were ready in less than 3 weeks and every single person in every photo looks flawless. Limelight really knows that they're doing - and since they only photograph weddings, it makes sense as to why they're so amazing! Ann captured shots that I had no idea were even taken (hardly saw her!) and she really knows how to capture your best angles right from the start. Since wedding photos are what you have as memories after the big day, I HIGHLY suggest Limelight photography! You won't be disappointed :)
The day my mother called me to tell me that she had found the perfect photographers for our wedding, I thought she was acting a little crazy, because she was so extremely exciting. I thought to myself, "what could really make these photographers any different from anyone else?" My mother was raving about Rebecca and Michael of Limelight Photography so much, I told her that if she was really this excited, we should hire them. You see, I had never met or seen their work before, because I was planning my Tampa wedding from NYC with an extremely busy schedule, leaving most of the major vendor decisions to my mother. However, from the moment I saw Rebecca and Michael's work online and spoke to them over the phone for the first time, I knew my mother was right. Finding Limelight Photography checked every single box, so to speak, of what I was looking in a photographer. I'm the type of person who loves to have every single thing organized and planned out. This is why I instantly "clicked" with Rebecca. Not only is she one of the nicest people I have every met, but she also is extremely organized and professional. Rebecca really took the time to get to know and learn about me and my husband. Our wedding was an Orthodox Jewish wedding, which is slightly more complicated than the average wedding, because of the many different parts to the ceremony throughout the event. Photographing something like this could have been a little daunting to the average photographer, but not for Rebecca and Michael. No matter what we threw at them, Rebecca and Michael were more than happy to learn about the custom and take on the challenge. Rebecca is a master planner and made the most amazing timeline for getting every single shot we wanted. When wedding day came, I was naturally a little nervous with everything going on around us, but Rebecca and Michael were our rock. Rebecca was with me while I got ready and Michael was with my husband. Rebecca has such a calming, yet authoritative presence about her, that as soon as we started taking photos, I instantly became more at ease. My husband said the same thing about Michael. Michael even saved the day when one our groomsmen forgot his white pocket square and made one for him out of a pillowcase! You couldn't even tell it was different! We recently got our photos back and I am still in awe. I have never seen such amazing wedding photos in my life! When I look at other people's photos, who also recently got married and ours photos, there is really no comparison. Rebecca and Michael captured everything we would have wanted and more. Everything they took is so stunning that I could cry. We got our photos back about a week and a half after our wedding, and Rebecca even sent me a sneak peak of some shots the day after! I have uploaded many of our photos to my Facebook and everyone I speak to tells me that this was the best wedding photography they have ever seen. Needless to say, hiring Limelight Photography was the best decision we could have made. I am so lucky to have been able to work with Rebecca and Michael and I would recommend them to everyone. Thank you Rebecca and Michael, you're really made our day special and now I have the most amazing photos to always remember how wonderful our day was! I cannot wait to start creating a photo album!
Choosing Limelight to capture our wedding was the easiest decision we made. When I first met with the owner to review their work I knew no one could capture our day like a Limelight photographer. Christi captured our day perfectly. She truly listened to our vision and brought it to life. I have looked at our pictures 1000 times since our day and I'm so thankful to have such beautiful images that will last a lifetime!!
We found our amazing wedding Photography studio through our venues preferred vendor list. As soon as we saw their portfolio we were blown away with the amazing way they capture those special wedding moments. My husband and I worked with Ann Fuentes and were not disappointed. She was so lovely and working with her was effortless. You can just tell she see the world in photographs and it was so cool to watch and be apart of. She made my now hubby and I feel very comfortable from the beginning starting with our engagement shoot. In the months between our engagement shoot and our big day she as always available and ready with a solution to everything we needed or wanted. On the days leading up to the wedding she as in constant communication confirming everything from timelines to shot lists to make sure she missed nothing. It made me feel so ready and confident for my wedding day. I knew I had nothing to worry about because she wasn't going to miss anything and she would handle it all. On the big day she and her team showed up right on time and knew what she wanted and how she wanted it. I felt like a princess all day and it was in HUGE part to Ann. She was so hands on and yet in the background all at once. Just how an amazing professional photographer should be. It was a truly amazing experince. It took 3 weeks for us to get our photos back and I could not be happier with my photographs. They are so beyond perfect. The group shots, the details, the candid memorable moments, she beautifully captured it all. I would recommend Ann and Limelight photography to anyone and everyone you will not be disappointed!
We Stepped in the LImelight.. After Meeting with Micheal Zoumberos at the Limelight studio, my husband and I new we chose the right vendor. The studio was inviting, warm, elegant and had amazing pictures taken by all lead photographers, They had wedding albums and canvas displays through out the studio. We watched a short slide how of past wedding pictures and Micheal ask questions on what we envisioned for our wedding. My husband and I felt comfortable with our packaged and the reassured that we will always have a lead photographer and assistant for our wedding day no matter what happens. Our amazing lead photographer Christi Allen Curtis contacted me with in days and asked questions and really listened to my concerns and Ideas. As months go buy, Christi always kept in touch. As our wedding day came, Christi and her team were professional, had all their notes with them and timeline. We stayed on the timeline and everything went on so smoothly. She was amazing and so fun to be around, our wedding party felt like they were part of their own cool fashion shoot... Everyone was relax and had fun... Our pictures are wonderful.. I keep viewing them.. Cant get enough reviewing them, it is like we are experiencing our magical day all over again. Pictures came exactly 2 weeks after our wedding day. Amazing quality of photography.. Thank you Christi and Thank you Limelight for capturing our special day... We look forward to more special moments with limelight..
We could not be happier with Rebecca, Michael, and the entire Limelight family! They are more than just "Photographers", they are artists AND life savers!! From the very first meeting at their beautiful studio, we knew these were the people we wanted to share our special day with. Michael was inviting, friendly and welcoming when we walked in. They showed us a nice video with some examples of their work and then explained the timeline leading up to the wedding day, the day itself and the timeline of when we would get our images. It wasn't a pressure sales pitch or script read presentation, it was from the heart. He gave us time and privacy to look through everything, talk it over and even understood when we wanted to go home and involve our parents. Our engagement shoot was awesome, Rebecca was helpful, creative and flexible. The images were delivered quickly, professionally and most importantly they were PERFECT!. Our wedding day was no different, in fact, they continued to amaze us. If it weren't for Limelight we would have been hours late to the ceremony, missed things at the reception AND not had a bustled wedding dress. I was in awe when the bustle on my wife's dress broke and Rebecca was down there on the floor helping get it pinned up so we could enjoy the rest of the night. Lastly, the pictures.... first and foremost, they were delivered earlier than expected and most importantly they are AMAZING! Even battling a time crunch Rebecca and Michael were able to really capture us as a couple. In our opinion, aside from the vows, pictures are the most important INVESTMENT of a wedding because those are the memories that you will be able to look at FOREVER, and thanks to Limelight Photography we have the best memories to cherish. Thank you again, Michael and Rebecca, from the bottom of our hearts!
Limelight Photography is the best in the business. Michael and Rebecca and their team specialize in weddings only. This allows them to get photos back to couples within 3 weeks of the wedding. They back your images for life and will replace yours if something happens to those. Michael and Rebecca are so incredibly sweet and very professional. Limelight makes you feel like you are part of the family. Michael & Rebecca have been so kind to me and are very easy to work with. The expertise and precision of Limelight is so evident in all they do. My photographer for my wedding was Sarah McDonald. What can I say about Sarah?! She is absolutely AMAZING!!!!!!!! I adore her and the work she produces is stunning. My husband and I were so blessed to be able to book Sarah for our wedding. Even though the wedding didn't start on time, Sarah still managed to get every picture taken we had on our list! The night shoot we did during the reception was so fun and I know the pictures are going to be phenomenal. I truly cannot say enough good things about Sarah and Limelight as a whole! Thank you so much Michael & Rebecca for how you run your business. Your kindness and professionalism is so appreciated. A very special thank you to Sarah! You are a rock star! I cannot thank you enough for capturing the best day of my life so well! Thank you for keeping me in calm in some of the stressful moments and for allowing Jason and I have to fun with you and Carlos while taking photos!! I love the Limelight family and feel so very blessed I was able to have them be part of the best day of my life!! Do yourself a favor and contact Limelight regarding photography for your wedding, I can promise you it will be well worth it!!
