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... Read More 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

We were absolutely blown away by our photos from Limelight. I first found them by doing a google image search of photography for our venue at the Florida Aquarium. Every time I saw an image I liked through google images I would click on the photo to see who the photographer was.... Read More Roughly 80% of the images that caught my eye were from Limelight. I also involved my father in law in my photography search as he is a hobbiest in photography. He turned down each and every photographer I sent him until Limelight, which he immediately loved. My husband and I knew the lightening in our venue was going to be tricky, and we needed the best. Boy did we get that with Limelight. Due to family health conditions, we weren't sure if we were actually going to be able to go through with our wedding day as planned. Michael, the co-owner of the company helped to create an arrangement in our contract that would assist with our circumstances if we had to call it off at the last minute. Luckily, conditions improved and these arrangements were unnecessary. We were nevertheless grateful for his willingness to work with us. Our team was led by Christi with assistance from Daphne and an intern, Kara. They were a phenomenal team to work with. Beyond their production of fabulous photos, they were friendly and kind. Though they frequently do weddings at this venue, their enthusiasm for us made my husband and I feel as if our wedding was uniquely special. They had great suggestions and ideas for posing and locations. They also kindly stayed a few minutes late to capture one last special moment between my sister and her boyfriend at the end of the evening. (They have this picture hanging up in their home). We are beyond grateful to have worked with Limelight. They are hands down the best photography group in Tampa.

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... Read More 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

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... Read More 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.
