John and Bernadette love to work as a team creating images through out your celebration! Only shooting for 10 years in Key West, they know all the special areas to photograph a couple in and always find a unique image that is the couple! They love to shoot in totally different ways, angles, lighting, and format. The combination of their "eyes" make for spectacular images! Working as a team they also can get you to your party much faster! Bernadette puts down her camera during family, group and bridal party pictures, she coordinates and gets creative with groups while John takes the actual picture, this makes the process 100 times smoother, faster and effortless! Focusing on the spontaneous, candids, emotion and beauty in details you will enjoy your day as much as the images you will get back!

My wedding was at the Ernest Hemingway house in Key West, FL on May 1st 2016. Senses at play was one of the "approved vendors" for this venue. My husband and I looked at all of them, and really enjoyed the look and feel of John and Bernadette's photos. Bernadette was our photographer that day and she was absolutely amazing!!! She was so responsive to emails, and worked with our budget in order to capture all the most important moments in a short amount of time. It seemed like we spent no time at all taking photos. She knew all the best spots and angles for my venue and wasted no time at all getting all the best shots. I also really appreciated that she posted a "sneak peek " on their Facebook page with almost 40 photos from our event within an hour or two after leaving! My friends and family liked that as well. We received the final photos about a month after our wedding date and there are hundreds of beautiful shots to choose from. We are so happy with how everything turned out and with the service we received. Thank you so much!!

Jennifer,
thank you so much for the kind words and it was a pleasure capturing your wedding day! Your abilities to create such unique decor, your own bridal bouquet and the blend of Jurassic Park and Lord of the Rings to make your event very personal was amazing. I especially love the volcano explosion rather than a sand ceremony! All my best for a long and wonderful life together I know that it will be as unique as the two of you are! Bernadette

John and Bernadette were the photographers for our wedding and we absolutely loved them! They were awesome from start to finish. My fiance' and myself reached out months ago thinking that we were going to be out of luck for a New Years Day wedding but we had an immediate response with a breakdown of options for our day. They walked us through every step of the process as I was unsure of what to expect. Because of that, we chose to use their Family Affair package which is without a doubt, what I recommend doing! Together, they made the entire day so relaxed and fun which totally alleviated any pressure. They chauffeured my fiance' and myself to various locations and kept us laughing the whole time. Their professionalism is unreal. It's been a few weeks since our wedding and I can't stop looking at the pictures which are absolutely beautiful and truly captured how wonderful the day was. If you have the opportunity to work with John & Bernadette, please do. They will be sure to preserve every awesome moment of your day!

My name is Faith and I own an event planning company called Smashingly Events. We hired Bernadette of Senses at Play Photography for our client's very special 40th birthday event. Bernadette went on the private yacht that we rented for the client and her friends for the day and spent the entire day taking incredible action shots of the group from the back of a jet ski. Incredible. Then she followed to the Southernmost Beach Resort and worked relentlessly to get the best shots of the event, even asking if she could go into a room overlooking the event to take shots from up above. She is professional and extremely talented. Check out the pictures from the event that she took on her website and on our website at Smashing.ly. I would highly recommend her. She went beyond anyone's expectations to get the job done.

We contacted Bernadette via Facebook and we had a prompt response in a couple of minutes.
All our contact in preparation of our photo-shooting went via e-mail. The response time was really good and all our questions were answered in a fast, friendly and professional manner.
The shooting itself was with John and it was really special for us.
We never felt stressed or not comfortable at any point - even our (at this point tired) 2-year old daughter was fully integrated in the event as well.
The pictures are really great - we love them.
We would recommend John and Bernadette any time.

I contacted Bernadette on a recommendation from a woman I spoke with one day who used them and LOVED their photos and service. I asked her to email me some of her photos and sure enough I was very impressed too! I contacted Bernadette over a year ago and can't even begin to tell you how fabulous she is in every way!!

She took my million dollar dreams and combined it with my shoestring budget and made magic happen!! I can recommend them so highly for sooooo many reasons but these top the list!

1) They really went to great lengths to make MY wedding vision a reality (so many locations, balloon props, family photos and fun poses I just had to have)
2) They are current and really in-tune with the latest trends and connected to social media! John and Bernadette shot both my welcome reception the day before and my wedding and on both occasions I had photos posted that night so I could share them with my family and friends that weren't able to make it
3) They gave great instructions during the shoot especially with the awkward poses that felt weird but came out looking so awesome!
4) She's an amazing seamstress/fixer! I ripped my dress at our first photo location and without missing a beat she had me pinned up and on our way!
5) Lastly they really exceeded my expectations and did such an amazing job of herding our "cats" all over the streets of Key West to make sure we got really fun and memorable photos!

John and especially Bernadette, I can't tell you how much appreciate all your hard work and really making our wedding photos and the whole experience fun and stress free!! Please also thank your assistant (lindsey??) for helping to herd our family and stop traffic on the streets of Key West to get us those awesome shots!!

I did the family affair package and it was hands down the best decision made! I can not thank them enough for everything the photography, the video, and DJ. I didn't even realize or see any of the photographers during the ceremony and yet they took soooo many beautiful shots, honestly it seemed as if there were 5 photographers because there were so many angles. Every wish came true and I am so grateful for the McCall Family thank you!
