The Real Chicago Wedding of Brooke & Beau

Posted by Lauren Wallis

Our Real Chicago Wedding: June 30, 2018

"It was so completely beneficial to bundle our three services with Mike Staff Productions. Not only because we got to save a little bit of money, but because it made the payment process and overall stress of having to deal with so many different companies nonexistent. If we had a question, we could email one contact as opposed to three. We felt confident going into our wedding day knowing that these people had worked together before which was one less moving part to worry about and put us at ease. I have already recommended Mike Staff to various friends who are in the planning process and will continue to do so. We were very happy with all three services and can confidently say we made the right choice going with Mike Staff Productions."- Happy Bride, Brooke

Mike Staff Productions: Videography 
 
We absolutely will recommend Mike Staff Productions to our friends and family that are looking for video, photo, or other entertainment needs! Everyone that we spoke with was professional, helpful, and very kind. We communicated with our videographer, Tyler, a few days before our wedding, and he was easy to contact, quick to respond, and was very personable and friendly! He was fun and energetic on our wedding day, even in the 100 degree heat, and captured great footage of our day! - Happy Bride, Alyssa
