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.

Horrible videography services and customer service. I had an extensive conversation with our videographer prior to the wedding. I wanted him to capture our entire reception including dances and guests (this is important in my culture). I hired the videographer to be there for 8... Read More hours. The edited video I got back was about an hour and half, which included a half hour of my ceremony. When I asked for the raw footage, they had only 3 hours of footage. I was very confused on how there was only three hours of footage when he was there for 8 hours. I asked for a refund for the five hours that were not captured and never heard back from their company.
