I highly recommend Mike Staff Productions! Made our lives so easy :) We got our DJ (DJ Mike), Videographer (Gigi) and Photographers (Diego/Donna) from Mike Staff and all were amazing. Tim took time with us to watch different videos to make sure we picked the entertainment best... Read More suited for us. From there they pretty much organized everything! We had touch bases here and there with each of our entertainers but for the most part they pretty much knew what to do! DJ Mike was fantastic! We were really nervous about the music because we feel that the DJ definitely makes or breaks the party. DJ Mike exceeded our expectations. He made sure to mix it up to appeal to different parts of our party and made sure to get everyone on the dance floor. Diego and Donna definitely had a vision for pictures and they turned out great. They really listened to what we wanted and had great energy and professionalism the entire night. The pictures turned out great. And Gigi was just a ball of energy! I felt like she was everywhere!! I'm so happy how everything turned out and I'd highly recommend Mike Staff to help make wedding planning stress free :)

Okay, we're not THAT good :) Seriously, though, THANK YOU for taking the time to share your experience with other couples. We love working as a team, looking out for each other and making sure you have the best day possible!

Mike Staff Productions was phenomenal! We took advantage of the bundled service for photography, videography and DJ which made the process far easier given they've all worked together before, and the venue works directly with one company rather than 3. We don't have enough... Read More positive things to say about our DJ, John. He was perfect! The dance floor was packed literally the entire night with every generation. We wanted it to transition to a bit more of a clubby vibe, which John was able to do perfectly, but also in a way that incorporated songs that our family friends wanted to dance to. Highly recommend!

I wish there was more than 5 stars! They were SO easy to do business with! We had DJ Mike and I am so glad we picked him!!! He made the night! The dance floor was full ALL night long!

We used Mike Staff for our DJ and videographer. Both of them were excellent to work with, especially our DJ, Kyle. He was SO much fun and played the best music that fit our style. He was also able to go with the flow when our ceremony had to start 45 minutes late and when we... Read More couldn't find the garter for the garter toss. We had so many people tell us how much they loved him and how they would hire him for their wedding! For the videographer, Amy, she was very nice and fun to work with.

Had trouble with our DJ. Song requests got mixed up...bride and groom entry swapped with bridal party entry song, do not play list song was played, requested songs not played...cake song was played before we cut the cake (which was at the beginning). We got off schedule.... Read More Volume kept creeping up so we would request it to go down, it would get turned down so far people stopped dancing then requested it up again, then gradually it would get up too high again, repeat repeat. Anniversary dance was played too late for some of the older couples. People danced but I think our crowd would of danced regardless. I'm sure they have great DJs, ours just didn't seem to be dialed in.

We apologize that you didn’t feel your DJ was “dialed in”. Yes, a mistake was made with the entrance song, however, the cake-cutting song was played on-cue as the DJ introduced the event with the song playing underneath. We were happy to see so many... Read Less Read More

Mike Staff is the vendor to use when looking into photography and DJ services. Our DJ, Kyle, did not disappoint. Both our families were on the dance floor all night. He really knows how to survey a room and figure out what songs will really get the crowd up and moving. Our... Read More photographer Mary was also amazing! She has such an eye for the best shots and was so pleasant to work with (she even let me use her lipstick all night because I liked the color so much). The best part is, you only have to use ONE vendor!! Keeping track of multiple vendors (each with their own bill to pay) is such a struggle and with Mike Staff, we didn't have to worry about paying multiple people. Everything was so convenient and easy. Randy did a great job explaining each package to us and recommending the perfect DJ and photographer to suit our styles and wants. In my opinion, Mike Staff is the best value for the money!

You know you have an AMAZING DJ when people are saying, “your DJ is AWESOME” while you are still at the reception (before and after all the alcohol kicks in). I am still getting compliments weeks after our wedding about our DJ. The set up in selection for the DJ is a... Read More comfortable and easy experience. We gave Bob creative freedom and we had a full dance floor the ENTIRE evening. We have had several couples state that they haven’t been out on the dance floor in over 20 years, but Bob got them up and dancing! Bob announced and kept the evening going flawlessly. We could not have had a better experience! I would recommend to anyone!

This was the most important day of our lives. Sean is the best DJ we could have ever hoped to be a part of our Wedding Day. He was professional, knowledgeable, organized, enthusiastic, genuine and kind. He took the time to listen and make sure everything was exactly as we... Read More wanted. He worried about things for us, so that we would not have to. Everything flowed perfectly that evening and he had more than a big part in that happening. We highly recommend Sean. He is an outstanding person as well as a DJ.

We used Mike Staff for our DJ, photography, and videography services. We absolutely LOVED each and every staff member we worked with. We loved bundling the services and being able to work side by side with one vendor. Kevin J was our DJ. He was AMAZING. He kept the party going... Read More and everyone said how much fun they had. I don't think we had an empty dance floor the entire 6 hours of the reception. He was also very conscience of us (bride and groom) and what we wanted done and not done throughout the night. Craig was our photographer and he was also a blast. If you need someone to keep everyone in check, he's your man. He was really good with keeping us on task and capturing a lot of candid photos throughout the night. Our Videography team was led by Rocky with Steve. They were also super fun to work with. They helped capture all the important moments throughout the day and it didn't even feel like they were there! We were very happy with Mike Staff as a whole, and would definitely recommend them to any one asking! Thanks!!

Planning a wedding within a 6 month span was intimidating. After all, it's not something you do every day. Mike Staff not only did a fantastic job keeping the party going with their DJ and capturing the moment with their photography/videography package, they essentially acted as... Read More day of wedding coordinators. Anything that was within their power to make the day run smoother for us, they did. From finding our "toasters" and getting their mics set up, managing the time line so my husband and I could just be in the moment, or in the days before keeping communication wide open (all three individuals I worked with actually told us to call or text them anytime I had an idea, and they lived up to this!); they owned every bit of it and you could tell they loved their careers. So thankful to have discovered them, and would highly recommend them to anyone else!

Steve was our DJ and everything we planned went perfectly. It's the little things that you notice. Our grand entrance selection was played just at the right moment as we entered the room. We were not specific on the particular selections of music during dinner, but the piano... Read More pieces made us smile, and were played at the perfect volume. His voice was smooth, and easy to understand.

Working with Mike Staff Productions was one of the easiest parts of planning our wedding. After requesting a quote through the knot, I received a phone call within minutes to discuss our needs.

Chris, who handles most of Northern Michigan, was amazing.
