"They all went 100% above our expectations."
We booked DJ, photography, and videography and all went 100% above our expectations. Our families and friends were so impressed with the music, that there was always a large group on the dance floor. We felt so comfortable and relaxed during our photos because our photographers made us feel that way. This was important to us. Overall, we are so happy we selected Mike Staff Productions to cover those wedding needs.
Lisa & James Love - The Metropolitan
"We could not see ourselves trusting any other team to run and capture such an important day."
It was great having all the various production teams coordinated out of one place. That alone gave us peace of mind when planning everything. Both photographers, both videographers and our DJ had all worked at some point together in the past, they worked great together and all knew exactly how to keep things on schedule and running smoothly. Having now gone through the day, we could not see ourselves trusting any other team to run and capture such an important day. We absolutely recommend Mike Staff!

"We loved that it was a one-stop-shop so we didn't have to look around."
My husband and I cannot say enough great things about Mike Staff Productions! We used them for photography, videography, and DJ. We loved that it was a one-stop-shop so we didn't have to look around. Patrick was our videographer and he was such a nice guy! I was worried about videography because I am so uncomfortable on camera, but he made me feel completely at ease and captured the day beautifully! Love Mike Staff Productions, I have been recommending them to everyone.
Lauren & Brandon Kanowski - St. Mary’s Cultural Center
"Our minds were put to ease very quickly!"
Our experience was top notch from start to finish. We were so nervous going into finding the right company, but our minds were put to ease very quickly! Everyone was so friendly, eager to help and made sure all of our questions were answered. We could not be more happy with our DJ, photographer, and videographer! We would highly recommend Mike Staff Productions!
Alex & Tristan Musser - Crystal Gardens of Southgate
"Mike Staff made the planning super streamlined and easy."
Overall, we can’t say enough positive things about our experience. We had all our photos and video in a few weeks, the DJ kept the party going, and Mike Staff made the planning super streamlined and easy. It was so nice to not shop around or coordinate three separate vendors for photo, video, and DJ because they all worked together without us having to do any extra work or communicating. Everyone the day of and prior from the office was professional, answered my last minute emails at all hours and very promptly, and answered any off the cuff questions we had over the phone with ease. We would 100% recommend to any bride and groom who are looking for professionals that take all the coordinating and stress away.
Summer & Jay Morente - Colony Club
"It makes such a difference when you know you are working with a reputable company."
We planned the wedding of our dreams in three months while we were living 10,000 miles apart and not even living in the state in which we were getting married in! The only way we were able to make it happen was choosing to use Mike Staff for our pictures, video and DJ. They took care of everything and helped me plan my Michigan wedding from Florida. It makes such a difference when you know you are working with a reputable company, so you aren’t worried about anyone being late or unprofessional. We knew what we were getting with Mike Staff and being able to depend on them took so much stress out of the planning process.
