We had the bundle package which included DJ, photographer, and videographer. They were all very nice, helpful, and professional. They worked well as a team and knew the venue. I would highly recommend Mike Staff Productions.

Dennis and Tom were great to work with and made us feel very comfortable. They captured all of the special moments of our day and the pictures are gorgeous. Mike Staff team is super easy to work with and super responsive.

*INCREDIBLE MATTHEW FILLION HIRE HIM* My husband and I hired Matthew Fillion for our DJ services from Mike Staff Productions. Matt exceeded everyones expectations, he was very thorough when we had our zoom meeting before the wedding. He was so easy to get in contact with and very accommodating to all of my special requests. AND THE BEST PART IS: the entire wedding night and days after, my husband and I received complements from people of all age groups about our DJ Matt. We are 25 years old and all of our friends our age were up and dancing all night. Even better than that, our parents are around the age of 50-60, they and their friends were all dancing as well. There were people who did not leave the dance floor, just when you think "okay I'll be done ever this song I need a break" somehow your favorite song comes on and there's no way you're leaving. Shoes were coming off because nobody was leaving the dance floor.I provided a playlist of songs my husband and I like and somehow Matt knew exactly which songs should be played for dinner and which should be played for dancing. Mid-bite of his dinner, my husband turned to me to say "this guy is great, the mood is perfect". Everyone was so happy with him and I truly think it is so hard to please everyone and to have such a wide range of age groups complimenting the DJ is huge. My dad is the pickiest person in the world and he made a point to tell me how great our DJ was.Beyond impressed, do yourself a favor and hire Matthew Fillion from Mike Staff Productions.

Had my wedding this past weekend and we had such a great experience with DJ Joe. He did such a great job as an MC for the night and I had so many guests come up and say how much fun they had at our wedding. He was also very responsive and prompt, very pleased!

We used the DJ service of Mike Staff Productions for our high school class reunion. Matt, our DJ did a great job and did all that we asked for. He was professional, on time and went with the flow when necessary. When you have an important event, you want experienced, great communication, good equipment and dependably. This company has it all.A big thanks to Mike Staff's company for a wonderful experience.Juliann Kumm

We used Mike Staff for our wedding in October 1st. Amy was our photographer and Kevin was our DJ. Both were amazing and I highly recommend using Mike Staff.

We used Mike Staff for our DJ at our wedding this year. Kevin was our DJ and did an amazing job! He was easy to talk to and work with leading up to our wedding. There was so much going on the day of, but Kevin did a great job touching base with us throughout the day for what to expect next and to confirm details. We really appreciated that! Our MOH and Best Man also really appreciated the cues he gave them during their speeches. The songs he played were on point and went along with the overall vibe we were going for! We would highly recommend working with Kevin and Mike Staff!

My wife and I hired Pam and Dominic as our wedding photographers. They were everything we expected and more! We had a blast working with both of them. Pam and Dominic were very sociable and they listened and were receptive to every one of our requests. 10/10 would work with them again!

We hired Mike Staff Productions for both photography and DJ services. Both services were absolutely amazing! When looking for a photographer and DJ on google, Mike Staff was the first one to pop up in our area. We had a great experience with them from the initial contact (prior to booking) to the very end. We decided to have two photographers and add on an additional hour for both since our ceremony was so early -- I highly recommend having two photographers and adding an additional hour if needed! Our main photographer was Pam and the second was Joel-- they were both amazing! Pam was there for us every step of the way pre-wedding and wedding day. She was very easy to communicate with, very talented and it was very apparent that she absolutely loves her job which is so important in this line of work! 🙂 The turn around for receiving a sneak peak and then all of the photos was great. Our DJ was amazing as well! We had DJ Dave and he was very easy to communicate with, listened to our requests + our guests requests, kept the timeline going smoothly and was overall very talented at his job! The dance floor remained packed until the end! We could not be happier with all of our photos and both the DJ and photography service we received. We would recommend Mike Staff to everyone!

We got the package deal and They worked as a team to make our wedding amazing! They updated me consistently when i was panicking getting my dress on, they helped the boys adjust their ties and suits to get ready, they had very strong intuition about things that needed to be done and kept the night moving along. Appreciate all three of them so much!

We used Mike Staff Productions for our DJ at our wedding. We had DJ Ron- and he was awesome!!! He was so easy to work with, and kept our dance floor PACKED all night! The price was also reasonable. Highly recommend!

My husband and I hired Mike Staff for photography, videography and DJ services and we couldn't be happier with the results! From day one, the team went above and beyond to make the planning process seamless and our wedding day stress free. Our DJ kept our guests dancing all night, which was one of our biggest priorities, and the photographers and videographer were so attentive and fun to work with. We're so grateful to Mike Staff for perfectly capturing our wedding day and exceeding our expectations. We can't recommend Mike Staff enough!

Mike Staff Productions was amazing to work with and I highly recommend their services! My photographer Domonick McGee and my videographer, Daniel Priest were outstanding. They were so lovely to work with, took every schedule change in stride and helped us get every shot we wanted. I also highly commend the management for quickly responding to some concerns I had during the wedding planning process. They responded quickly and worked with me to find a solution that made sense. I highly recommend Mike Staff for your wedding photography and videography needs!

We used Mike Staff Productions for our wedding DJ and had a great experience! They were very professional, easy to work with, and had great communication. We were really specific about what music we wanted played and they were really nice about it and played everything we wanted including specific versions etc. Would highly recommend.

My husband and I hired Mike Staff for our photography, videography, and DJ, and we are so happy we did! Our photographer, Ed, is such a sweet person and is so talented -- he really went above and beyond for us from our engagement shoot all the way through the end of our wedding. Our DJ, Matt, and videographer, Michelle, were equally talented and great to work with; we had a ton of obscure song requests, and Matt amazingly figured out how to incorporate each one, and even though we only had one brief conversation with Michelle prior to the wedding, she fit right in and her presence was a wonderful part of our day. Each person was so attentive, thorough, and pleasant to work with, and we absolutely cannot wait for our final photos and video. 🙂 We truly could not have asked for a more perfect wedding, and we owe a lot of that to the talent and professionalism of Mike Staff!

(DJ Service) Mike Staff Productions absolutely made our night one to remember forever! Every step of the way, Mike Staff Prod.'s Team was more than helpful. They provided numerous resources as well as detailed one-on-one discussions prior to the event. We had the pleasure of having Jim with us and we cannot say enough about how wonderful he was! Jim's personality lit up the room! Jim was very vocal (loud enough for those in the back of the venue to hear), his pronunciation was great & his knowledge for music choice was impeccable! Everyone felt included and genuinely had a great time! 10/10. Would recommend to all!

Mike Staff Productions, over all, was one of the best choices we made when wedding planning. They were extremely professional, organized and give us some of the most beautiful memories. I cannot recommend them more.

We had our wedding at upland hills farm on 9/10/2022. Joe Luellen was our DJ and he did a phenomenal job! He kept the whole party dancing all night! We had quite a few requests and a lot of polish music! He didn’t miss a beat!! Thanks again Joe for your help in a fantastic night!!

Randy was awesome and professional on our day and the days leading up to the wedding. Made the worry of planning not a worry at all by having all the hookups to a projector for a slideshow and hooking up the mics for an outside ceremony and having the reception move smoothly from one hour to the next and playing all must play songs making the day truly special and rememorable.

We used Mike Staff Productions for our DJ and Videographer, and we cannot rave enough about how amazing it was!DJ Ron KILLED it for our wedding! First and foremost- the friendliest and kindest person ever! He gave us everything we asked for, and even adapted when we had to make last minute changes! He kept the event flowing for us, and the music was amazing! We asked for a variety of music, and not only did he give us that, he gave us the best of the variety! If people weren't on the dance floor inside, they were outside dancing! We got married just over a week ago, and people are STILL complimenting us on DJ Ron!We had Tracy as our Videographer, and like DJ Ron, Tracy was amazing. Super friendly with everyone! He was everywhere he needed to be at the right times. I honestly cannot believe how quickly and efficiently he worked. Our ceremony and reception were at the same place, and my husband and I did not do a first look, so Tracy worked with us to ensure I stayed hidden from my husband until the ceremony. He was literally everywhere all the time. We cannot wait to get our wedding video back, because we know he captured everything we wanted!Can honestly say Mike Staff gave us even more than we imagined for our wedding day, and would highly recommend to anyone!

Mike staff provides the best of the best for your perfect day, we have received all pictures and videos even earlier than they promised!!! I am completely obsessed with all their services and if you're wondering "do I actually need a videographer?" the answer is YES YOU DO!!!

Our photographer, Mary, was phenomenal. She showed up early and helped with areas not even related to photography just to ensure we were set up. She was consistently finding the best photo opportunities for us on our special day. We deeply value her commitment to her profession and to documenting our day in the best way possible. We both highly recommend using Mary and her services. She was awesome!

We used Mike Staff for both DJ and Videography! We had an extremely positive experience with both! Their communication is amazing and I felt taken care of every step of the way no matter who I was talking to. I strongly recommend working with them!DJ- we had DJ Phil on our special day and he was great! Kept people on the dance floor, was fun, and definitely made the bride and groom a priority with how they wanted the day to go!Videography- Justin helped us out on our big day! I can’t speak to the actual quality of footage as we haven’t received it yet (but that is to be expected as our wedding was only two weeks ago). One thing I REALLY appreciated about him was the fact that he was there to capture every important moment but he didn’t get in the way and his presence wasn’t necessarily noticed!
