I don't even know where to began to say enough good things about David and Sublime! From the very first time I met David I could see he loved what he does. Extremely professional and timely. At our first meeting he was willing to work with me and allowed me to make a down payment and pay for the package as I could. When we did our engagement session he did these different angles I had never seen before when I was looking up ideas. We got our engagement session back and I could have cried. Editly perfectly you couldn't even have seen and hair that had blown in my face from the wedding. But what really stole the show was our wedding pictures. We got them back a couple days ago and you could say I am obsessed. I haven't stopped looking at them! We should them to our venue Lange Farm and they immediately thought they were gorgeous! Many of our friends and coworkers thought that we could have be in ad they turned out so good. David is also very flexible he is open to you texting/emailing/calling and willing to talk you through the stress. One of my biggest fears was that my pictures wouldn't turn out good because I feared I feel like there was a camera in my face the whole day but it was like that with David. If I had the choice I would let David photograph all our family photos, kids, etc because it just turns out so amazing. The wedding photos are what you have long after the day is over ! Remember you get what you pay for and you want amazing photos to look at for years to come!
Sublime Studios was awesome! First of all its one stop shopping! They were able to do my photo, video and provide a photo booth! Our wedding was downtown Tampa at the Sheraton Riverwalk. We made them come with us on boats, to additional locations and even extended coverage last minute. None of it was a problem and David and Courtney were completly go with the flow. Not only were they professional, but fun! We felt very comfortable with them and not one complaint from the guys in penguin suits (tough to pull off)! Really easy to work with, incorporated everything we wanted, and were quick with shots so we could get back to the party and important things like having fun with our family and friends. Highly recommend them to anyone in need of photo and video. We also had our engagement photos with them which helped them learn our style beforehand. Just great all around!
Awesome PhotographersReviewed on 4/13/2015
AS a bride of a destination wedding with no wedding planner, my number one goal was trying to find excellent wedding photographers. To me, it was so important to have our wedding documented by photpgraphs so I could relive the memories of our wedding for a lfietime. I found Sublime Studios on The kNot and instantly fell in love with their skill and photography. They did not disappoint when it came to our wedding photos. I could not have been more pleased with who we picked as our wedding photographers. Not only were the pictures phenomenal, David and Courtney were so sweet and helpful the day of the wedding. The first time we ever met face to face was teh wedding day. David photographed the entire wedding while Courtney ran out photobooth, which was so much fun! They even do wedding videos, which I know I wont be let down when we get ours! Thank you so much Sublime Studios!
We used Sublime for our daughter's wedding this last weekend. I would highly recommend them to our friends and family. David did our daughters engagement shots and through Sublime, we hired Kinsey as our wedding day photographer! Our daughter could not be happier with the time Kinsey spent with them. Our guests had a wonderful time at the Photo Booth! I also looked over at one point in the night and realized the videographer caught the bride, her aunts and myself dancing, just then her grandmother danced into the circle! It was an amazing night! The whole team was fantastic! We can not wait to see the beautiful pictures! Thank you David and Kinsey!
David was honestly one of the best photographers to work with from the beginning. He not only made me feel comfortable planning so far away but he listened to my requests too. He also made me and my now husband feel comfortable the entire time and made the whole process so easy and quick. His son also did such a fantastic job at the photo booth and was making everyone laugh. Our videographer also was amazing and we barely knew he was there taking video of the entire time. I could not be more excited to see the photos and video and would highly recommend Sublime to anyone who asks.
Very disappointed. Not only did David not have our pictures ready after the 14 week contracted timeline, when I received the photos back it looked like they were not even edited. I have tried contacting David via text, and phone several times to see if additional edits could be made— and I’ve received no response. Very unprofessional. Very disappointed. Would not recommend.
Chris and I got married at the Gulf Drive Cafe on Bradenton Beach Florida in May 2017. Sublime Studios did our photography and Photo Booth. Our photos came out beautiful with hi res. The photos were framed well and captured the perfect moments of our perfect day! The Photo Booth was a fun addition that gave us the opportunity to see all our guest photos and send them home with a little souvenir. David was our lead photographer and he was very professional. He answered every time I called and made the day go by smoothly. He know just how to place you for the perfect shot. Overall we are so happy we chose Sublime Studios.
We booked our engagement photos, wedding photography and videography with Sublime Studies and couldn't be happier that we did. David and Courtney are extremely talented photographers and did an awesome job on everything. We got married in Tampa, FL at Ivy Astoria and somehow ended up with a rainy day in February - Courtney absolutely made it work and our pictures came out beautiful despite the rainy day. Courtney did both our engagement shoot and our wedding and we loved that we got to know her a little bit before our big day with our engagement pictures. She is very creative and has a great eye for photos - she made sure that we got every shot that I had wanted, but without taking us away from our cocktail hour and reception for a long time.
I was blown away by the pictures that Sublime Photography took of my wedding. I was married at the Sandpearl Hotel in Clearwater, Florida and I hired Sublime to photograph my daytime wedding. David, my photographer, did an absolutely amazing job! He truly captured the essence of my wedding day. I was impressed by the crisp picture quality and artistic shots he took. I spent a lot of time researching photographers because my wedding was outdoors during lunchtime which means harsh lighting conditions. David was great about answering all my questions ahead of time to ensure I was comfortable. He was easy to work with, laid back, yet highly efficient. He excelled with the harsh lighting and exceeded my expectations in terms of the quality of the pictures he took. If you are looking for a professional, highly skilled photographer who is easy to work with, I high recommend David with Sublime Photography.
David and Courtney was a pleasure to work with during my wedding. They did a fabulous job on my wedding photos. I booked photo, video and photo booth services. They are very flexible and fun to work with. The quality of the photos and video are great. They have went above and beyond to capture every special moment if my big day. My wedding was at The Crystal Ballroom in Casselberry, FL
BEST TEAM EVER!!!! David and Courtney from Sublime Studios were beyond amazing and did an incredible job making our day perfect in every way. We booked both their photography and videography services for our Disney Fairytale Wedding at the Grand Floridian Wedding Pavilion in Orlando Florida. David, Courtney and the entire team were so easy to work with, they are super talented and creative. From the very beginning communication with Sublime studios was great. David was very patient and efficient in returning emails and text messages. David created a very workable yet flexible time line for our day. David and Courtney are an amazing husband and wife team that work well together and offer a lot of high energy and excitement. The picture quality of our photos was beyond my expectations and we so pleased with all the photos. I couldn't be any happier for the choice we made to use this amazing team and I would recommend them to any bride.
I would highly recommend Sublime Studios for your wedding photography needs. David is simply amazing. We had a blast shooting our engagement pictures at the Ringling in Sarasota and my wedding pictures were absolutely stunning. I look forward to working with him in the future.
With a grateful heart I recommend Sublime photography. This company photographed the most important day of my life and their work decorates the walls of our house, reminding us of that wonderful day. They are professional, thorough and artistic. David captured the beautiful landscape, lighting and nuances of our venue, Lange Farm in Dunedin. He navigated all the wedding dynamics like a photo-boss, maintaining his cool when unruly family members didn't fall into photo-mode immediately. Weddings are landmark occasions in people's lives, so go with photographers who will make it a perfect day. Thank you, Sublime!
Sublime Studios did an outstanding job capturing all of the sweet cherish able moments that I can look back on for the rest of my life. We went with their photography and videography services and were very impressed. We had our wedding at the Loews Don Cesar Resort on St. Pete Beach and they were able to catch amazing quality pictures no matter how strong the sun was while we were on the beach! Sublime Studios was also very timely and catering to my requests, they even left an hour after the proposed time because guests kept wanting to take pictures. I highly recommend Sublime Photography because of their professionalism, expertise, reliability and friendliness.
My husband and I got married in St. Pete Beach, Fl at the Grand Plaza Beachfront Resort in July. We spent almost a year planning every last detail of our event. Choosing our photographer was probably the easiest decision we made. We looked through many portfolios and searched the knot for many reviews, but when you stumble upon someone like Sublime Studios and catch your future husband crying during someone else's wedding video, you know you have found "the one" (to capture THE day). We immediately got in contact with them, got a great vibe from communicating with them, and felt their personality jived well with ours. We booked them for our engagement shoot and wedding day photography, videography and photobooth. The day of the wedding, they showed up on time and kept busy while my stylist did my hair. They moved furniture around to get the perfect shots of my dress hanging, the rings, the shoes, me writing my vows last minute. They even kept me calm when it started to pour soon before I was called to walk down the aisle. They were very professional but very chill too. I had fun with them during our wedding. They were there with us during every moment but they weren't ever in our way. I love going through my wedding album. It shows how attentive they are to detail. It was the happiest day of my life and I get to relive it over and over again now. The pictures are so clear that I feel like I'm back there on the beach with everyone I love. One of our stipulations for picking our photographer was that we should feel like we can hang our wedding pictures on the wall. If I had to say a bad thing about their work, it is that I want to wallpaper all of my walls with our wedding pictures. Thank you for being the biggest part of our most special day. I don't know what we would have done without you!
My groom and I were married at the Don CeSar in St. Pete Beach, Florida. Sublime Studios provided our wedding photos and a photo booth during our reception! From our formal session to capturing 'moments' Sublime was a class act. During our action packed day Courtney and David helped me stay relaxed and follow the timeline we had set. I would highly recommend them for your big day, and don't leave out the photo booth our guests absolutely loved it as an extra favor! Thank you Courtney and David for capturing the most gorgeous sunset and our most special day!
Sublime Studios simply did an AMAZING job on our wedding photography. My wedding situation was unique my husband and I are from Kentucky but have always dreamed of a Destination wedding! Dreams do come true, but the difficult part is doing all the planning back home, I never saw the venue until we got there the week of the wedding. So, finding a wedding photographer, while not being in the area was tough. The wedding photography was one of the most important details of our wedding, so I did my research and found SUBLIME STUDIOS and was not disappointed! I worked with David and he was extremely helpful in every aspect from starting (stressful planning phase) to the end (anxious bride waiting for her pictures phase) David and Courtney aren’t part-time; they are full-time professionals! There are many different packages to find the one that suits your wedding needs! I can’t forget to mention the Photo booth, is was the big hit of the night! Our wedding now has beautiful photos that I will cherish forever. I’m so thankful I found Sublime for my wedding photography.
Sublime was AMAZING! They were patient, and extremely professional. And the picture quality is breathtaking. We couldn't have been happier with Sublime. Their photo booth was a fun addition, their photos and photographers were second to none and the videographers were very easy to deal with. We got married on Pensacola Beach at the Margaritaville and Dave and his team captured our special day perfectly!!!!
We used Sublime Photography for our photos, video and photo booth. David and Courtney met with us in person and made multiple phone conversations before the wedding to help us plan the details of our day. Photo quality is amazing!! They captured all of our memories and made it such a fun day! They are both really amazing people and photographers!
Having a destination wedding takes so much stress out of having to do the planning yourself. The one thing I was concerned about was the photography. While Sandals offers a photography package, I was not able to review any of the photographers personal photo's until I was on site. This left me with an uneasy feeling as I had seen other people's photo's and was not impressed. I decided to contact Sublime Studio's. This by far was one of the best decision's I have ever made. I was very fortunate that Courtney Craver agreed to travel with us to St. Lucia. I had absolutely no idea how much detail was involved. Courtney asked me for a copy of my schedule. I replied, "What schedule? I get my hair and make-up done at 1:00pm and get married at 4:00pm". God Bless her for coming to the rescue. She did all the planning as to who was going to get ready with who and at what time and what location. She ran all over the resort capturing those precious moments. I was so surprised when I saw the pictures. Her attention to detail is absolutely incredible. The pictures turned out amazing! By the end of the day all the staff at the resort knew her by name. I also have to mention that while my husband and I were standing out on some rocks in the water, he noticed I lost my deceased mother's diamond ring that was tied to my bouquet. My heart pounded as I ran down the beach looking for her ring. Courtney put down her camera, got into the water and started lifting and relocating 50lb rocks as the tide was ripping through. She found my Mother's ring! She saved the day in more ways than one! If you are looking for someone who is extremely talented who is willing to go above and beyond the call of duty than Courtney Craver is the woman for you! P.S. My friends all commented on my photo's saying that they should be on the cover a Magazine!
Rainbow Springs & Home receptionReviewed on 9/08/2015 weee a
David & Courtney were great to work with. We didn't want to work with a big nameless cookie cutter corporation and we really liked the energy they had as a couple from our first meeting. A big part of what worked so well was that we felt like they listened and were flexible and creative since we had our wedding outdoors in a park that did not have a very typical wedding setting and the timing and logistics (the wedding lasted the entire day since it involved a breakfast, a bus ride to and from the park and then the reception at our home) required strategy. They were also very patient when things from our planners side did not go as smoothly as we hoped. David was great at strategizing and setting up a timeline which helped us with planning the event. The photobooth was so much fun and even the older guests participated! We also enjoyed our engagement shoot - that definitely helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera on the big day. Having them take care of both video and photography took a huge burden off of our shoulders and given all of the moving pieces having cohesion really helped. Everyone, including us : ), has been oohhhing and ahhhing over both our engagement album and our wedding photos - the hard part will be deciding which ones to put in the official wedding album since there are so many awesome shots! Thanks so much David, Courtney & the Sublime team - you guys rock!
Destination WeddingReviewed on 3/27/2015
I recent got married in the beautiful Turks & Caicos. Sublime Photo did and excellent job. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a local photographer as well as for a destination. I wanted to make sure all the details of my special day were captured in order to share with my friends & family that were not able to make it. David and Courtney provide us with great photos and a very good video. They were amazing to work with, always willing to answer and questions and to provide as much as detail as possible. It goes a long way that I was able to work with such an amazing team to help cherish those special moments. Hands down anyone looking for a great photographer and/or videographer for a destination wedding I would recommend Sublime Studios Photography!!!
Sublime Studios Review - Stellar Job!Reviewed on 1/31/2015
Due to unforeseen circumstances, we needed to book photography & videography at the last minute and Sublime was able to accommodate our needs. The pre-wedding video chats and planning sessions went very well, during which time we are able to combine our vision and requests with David’s artistic and professional opinions. It was very helpful that Sublime are veterans at working with/at the Watercolor Resort in Santa Rosa, Fl. Knowledge of the key personnel, property layout, and typical sequences was invaluable for planning and execution of the day’s events. Initially we were not interested in doing a first-look shoot (due the relative ‘cheesiness’ of others we viewed online through various portals) but after discussion with David we opted in favor. This was one of the best decisions for the day as it achieved several objectives: fully utilized the property’s outdoor spaces and perfect weather to get great shots, was a wise use of the photographers' time (we had them for 8-9 hours and were underutilizing them in the original schedule), and most importantly the first look, done our way, allowed us to create very memorable and intimate moments prior to the ceremony. Since the first look lead straight into pre-ceremony time, schedule was important and we promptly hit all time-based milestones of the day. The ceremony itself was held on the beach and we were very lucky with the sunset. David and his professional crew captured great photos during the event and some very dramatic post-ceremony shots, all highlighting the natural beauty of a sunset on the coast. David’s editing perfectly brought out the blue of the water and orange hues in the sky. Seeing some of these amazing images was a real thrill. We have yet to see our videos, but are confident they will capture our wedding memories poignantly. David’s before and after wedding services were also professional, efficient, and reassuring. We have another wedding ceremony in Singapore and David is working hard to get our photos and videos ready for that. We are really appreciative. Those few stunning sunset shots are going to be the key photos at our overseas ceremony. All-in-all we are very pleased with our choice to use Sublime Studios and would highly recommend. The photographers/videographers were professional, non-intrusive, and schedule-aware. Sublime Studios is one of the few that does both photography and videography. Having both services under the same roof is more cost efficient, the teams are adept at working together, and it makes the coordination and flow of the wedding day so much smoother. We are both quite critical people and are extremely happy with the product. Stellar job, Sublime Studios!
Best Photo Team in FL!!Reviewed on 1/17/2015 Jessie R
My husband, Nathan, and I had a difficult time finding a photographer and videographer vendor for our October wedding in St. George Island, FL....until we met David & Courtney Craver from Sublime Studios. They were very friendly, down to earth, responsive, and could give us everything we were looking for. We had issues with other photographers/videographers who didn't respond to our emails/voicemails or were limited in the services they could provide or even attempted to charge us an additional $2500 just for their travel! David & Courtney arranged to come to us (a few hours away) to go over all of their services as well as the photo albums they offer. With all of the stress that comes with planning a wedding, they were a breath of fresh air and put us at ease when we found out they could take care of all of our photo & video needs....including a crazy photo booth! Our guests couldn't get enough of the crazy booth and we have all of the pics to prove it too. Working with such a wonderful husband and wife team like David and Courtney on the day we became husband and wife made our day even more special. They took the lead and captured all of the wedding shots that we requested and a LOT more that we didn't....which are some of our favorite shots. They were creative and fun with not only us but the rest of the wedding party and all of our guests too. I would like to mention that the rest of the crew who assisted David & Courtney were incredible and they all worked extremely hard and very well together. When we were able to see the results of their AMAZING work (which was exactly 8 weeks later as promised), we were blown away by the incredible shots they got and were able to re-live every moment together. Our guests really appreciated being able to access all of their photos and order any shots they wanted too. We are now working on our photo album with David and Courtney and should be getting our video from them any day now. We look forward to seeing the results of the album and video so we can share our special day with our loved ones forever....or just watch it alone together on our future anniversaries. Although we were initially concerned about the cost, it was worth EVERY penny and we couldn't have asked for a better team or better results!! Sublime Studios is our first choice in professional photography and we highly recommend to pick them for your wedding in FL!!
AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHERS!Reviewed on 1/13/2015 Leanne H
David and Courtney were such an amazing couple to work with on our wedding day! They captured our wedding day perfectly, while at the same time remained very unintrusive and respectful! Once our wedding photos were released, I couldn't believe how beautiful they were. Every single picture was a beautiful picture, and their candid shots did a great job capturing the feelings of the day. Would HIGHLY recommend them for any bride/groom's wedding photographers.
