We couldn't be happier with our choice to hire Mike Staff Productions for our photography, videography, and dj services. Tim Stolkey is a great salesman and was wonderful at keeping on top of our needs. It was great to have all three big services under one roof, the pricing was... Read More reasonable, and totally unique--we got to watch videos of the photographers and djs to choose who we wanted! Photography-Lee Hickman and the second photographer, Diego, were great! They helped give us a fair amount of direction while just capturing all the great moments. They were professional and had a lot of great photo ideas. Lee really knew what he was doing even though we didn't! He was organized and coordinated everyone--bridal party, videographer, and other photographer. Lee was very mindful of making sure that we were always comfortable with the direction of things and that he was meeting our needs, rather than just doing what he liked. He was a great communicator and was very clear about wanting us to speak up if we wanted any changes. We haven't gotten our full photos yet (wedding was only 2 weeks ago) but the sneak peek album we received looks incredible! SO BEAUTIFUL! I HIGHLY recommend them and have already sent them referrals. One thing to consider, however, is how much time you will need the photographer(s) and/or videographer--basic packages likely won't cover it if you need them all day.

Okay soon to be Newly Weds – here is the short & sweet version....Mike Staff Productions & DJ Tim are the best choice for your wedding. You will not find a group of folks that go the extra distance for the most important day of your lives. Our experience was beyond... Read More expectations on all levels, especially the works of Tim on the 1’s & 2’s, Chelsea’s master eye for photography & David ability to work the camera….our wedding was more than just a day, it was a story, our story, the best story thanks to Mikes Staff. The photos’ are so polished & professional and the video isn’t a video, it a movie – a full body production that we’ll enjoy forever…..we seriously look like movie stars.

We were beyond impressed with everything Mike Staff did for us. It is such a hard thing to plan a wedding but they made it so easy (and affordable!!)

Had a great experience with Mike Staff Productions for our wedding! We hired two videographers for our wedding from Mike Staff and were pleased with our final video! Our videographers were there to capture each moment of our wedding ceremony through the end of the night. They... Read More were professional, on-time, and ready to go! From our first meeting to our final check-in before the wedding I felt confident in their abilities. They seamlessly filmed and worked well with our photographer. I also liked the personal touches they put into our wedding video (taping messages from our bridal party during the reception). The final product was wonderful as well! Our package included a DVD with edited footage and our choices of music for the soundtrack. They also created a highlights video we were able to post to social media! I would advise that the final editing takes a bit of time. However, it is worth the wait! Also, there were possible add-ons I was not aware of upfront (getting a blu ray of the footage). I kind of wish I had known about them before I had made my final vendor payments. Those points aside, I highly recommend this vendor! They were quick to respond to email and phone calls. I also found them flexible and friendly. They have an office for appointments with evening appointments. This was a huge help to my fiance and I as we work during the week. They have a digital portal for clients that also makes life easier. Mike Staff's videography services are also an excellent pick for brides and grooms working on a budget! Their rates are flexible for different needs and refreshingly, don't break the bank. They are well worth the fantastic final product!

We have zero regrets when it comes to hiring Mike Staff Productions for our videography, photography, and DJ services. First, let me talk about Tim. Tim is the head salesman you meet with when first deciding and he is just wonderful. Tim makes you feel at ease, is honest, and... Read More makes you feel absolutely no pressure. He is also there throughout your wedding planning process and he answers all of my questions, answering emails incredibly promptly. He is all around amazing at what he does! For videography we had David and for photography, Chelsea. Both were amazing. We haven't even seen all of the final product yet but I have full faith it will all be incredible! They were so nice, professional, and fun to work with throughout the day. I could trust them to do a great job and thus spent the day worry-free and just enjoying being a bride! They knew what they were doing and I could tell they cared about my wedding and my day. For DJ, we had Mike K. Let me just say, Mike is amazing. I don't have enough words to describe Mike. He was our master of ceremonies and reception DJ, he was professional, fun, nice, approachable, and organized. He kept us on track with the timeline and most importantly, played what we wanted to hear but also took requests and all around KEPT THE PARTY GOING! We all had so much fun and honestly it is because of the packed dance floor due to Mike. There was great music all night, transitions, and no opportunities for people to even want to leave the dance floor party. But it didn't feel like a trashy club. It felt like an awesome wedding you wanted to stay at all night long! All in all, Mike Staff is affordable and a great, professional company. They care about you and your wedding.

We are by no means easy graders and have pretty high standards. For instance, if you were asking me about some of our other vendors I would give them a C- or D+. That said the Mike Staff team is the vendor that I would most highly recommend of all our vendors. Anson, our... Read More videographer, was truly wonderful. We felt at ease with him all day. He was fun and kept the mood light. He also worked fantastically with our photographer. I also really appreciated that when we had a hiccup in timing due to a medical issue at the wedding that he was willing (in fact insisted on) to stay longer to capture some of the key speeches and dances. All that said, the proof is in the pudding and we just received our wedding video and we loved every minute of it. We know we will be watching it for years to come. We highly recommend Anson as your wedding videographer. You will get a great product and work with a great guy. You will not be disappointed.

We used Mike Staff Productions to find our DJ for our wedding reception and ended up going with Mike D. I'll start with the selection process. We went in to the office in Plymouth Mi and were immediately offered something to drink (for a surprising list of options). We got to... Read More sit down and be shown video samples and interviews of all of their DJs explaining a bit about themselves and their style. All of this was done for us without us ever committing to hiring through them. My now-wife and I agreed that Mike D. looked like the perfect guy for us so we booked him. A week before the wedding We got a call from Mike (as we had been told we would) where he took some time to get a feel for us and our style. What wedding events we wanted and didn't want, what music we liked, anything we just couldn't stand and all the usual stuff. This was really helpful for us to feel confident that we would be happy with our music no matter how other things turned out. Night of: At dinner mike played all of my wife's favorite songs and actually had her in tears by making her night. It was really awesome. He also did a stretch of show-tunes and our guests were all singing along and having a blast! After the dinner and the customary dances we let Mike do his thing and run the show, and WOW. We are a family of very geeky introverts with many introverted friends and I really wasn't sure how much dancing we would get. I can honestly say I have never seen so many people on the dance floor at a wedding and he kept it packed ALL NIGHT. I was absolutely blown away. I will also say that he did not make the reception about him, he let the music do pretty much all of his talking and I really appreciated that. Mike Staff Productions also had worked many times with our reception hall (benefits of going through a company like this) so everything was easily set up and working before our guests ever arrived. Also had any equipment failed or the DJ been sick we would not have been out-of-like as you might be by hiring an independent DJ - I think that peace of mind is pretty valuable.
