For our wedding, we worked with Tim Stolkey from Mike Staff Productions and we are so happy we made that decision. The first time we met Tim we felt so comfortable working with him and knew he was going to be a great DJ. On our wedding day, he exceeded our expectations! We did a few add-ons such as having him play the music for our ceremony and extending the time that we would have him at our reception till. In the middle of the reception, we decided we wanted to end it early, and he was more than willing to do that for us, and even refunded us the money we would've spent if we would have gone the full time. Not only was that so awesome of him, but I am a big music lover and have many songs that have special meanings for me. I created a spreadsheet of songs that I wanted played at different parts of the day/night and Tim played all of them for us. Our wedding guests had such a great time on the dance floor that evening. Everyone was very pleased with the music, including the grandparents, our parents/aunts/uncles, my husband and our friends (we're all in our young to mid 20s), and the little kids. Everyone was dancing the night away. Even weeks after, everyone was talking about how much they loved our DJ. One of my friends who is getting married next year is even thinking about choosing Tim as they're wedding DJ. Mike Staff Productions, especially Tim Stolkey, is highly recommended to provide you with a wonderfully, fun wedding night!

Mike Staff is an incredible company and I would use them for everything! They gave my husband and I a military discount for our wedding.We booked and worked with Tim before the wedding. Tim was very professional and made us always feel comfortable. Our DJ was Patrick T. and he did a great job. Everyone came up to my husband and I later to compliment the selection he played. Mike Staff worked with us throughout the entire planning process and were very flexible with what we needed. I highly recommend!

Awesome! I did my wedding video, photo and DJ through Mike Staff for my June 7 wedding. When I first signed up with Mike Staff, they provided me a detailed timeline of when the vendors would contact me; it all happened just like they said! This becomes especially important the last few weeks before the wedding because there are so many last minute things that the bride and groom are taking care of. They were all so professional and created wonderful memories for us. The photos that I have seen so far are gorgeous and we got SO many compliments on our DJ. I haven't seen the video yet, but I know that it will be fabulous! Highly recommend!

One word amazing. Jimmy t was my d.j and he was so great. He played exactly what I wanted along with what my husband wanted and then a tone of other great music. He was so responsive and professional and communicated with me at the beginning of the reception which was great. I felt so comfortable and was able to enjoy the night.
I also had Daniel as my videographer and he did such a great job, he captured all the moments that I wanted. He was so friendly and professional. I also got my mini trailer video of my wedding after 3 weeks which was so quick and looks great all my friends and family that have seen it said it made them cry. Let's just say you won't go wrong with mike staff. I first met with randy when I booked and he was such a great guy witha combination of the great reviews mike staff has and how awesome randy was I knew I was making the right decision.

Mike Staff is a very professional company. We had Joshua Baker as our DJ and he was wonderful. He basically coordinated our reception. I highly recommend using this company.

I worked with Tim Stolkey right from the beginning and from the beginning to the end he was amazing. Any and all questions I had he answered quickly and always had answers. He helped me assemble the dream team of DJ, Photographer and Videographer. And at the most important time when I needed him most he was there. On my wedding day when we arrived at the venue 2 hours early he was already there. As you can imagine it's hard to keep track of everything even if you did plan every detail, but guess what? You don't need to remember because Tim is right there with all the answers. He made every moment special, played all the songs we picked and songs he chose were perfect too! I couldn't have done it without him or the rest of the Mike Staff team! Best DJ ever! I can't thank him or Mike Staff enough!

We had a limo break down on us and were not able to take our pictures where we wanted but Jim totally improvised and got us GREAT shots! He was just fantastic and very funny and nice. He was able to get all of our family photos really quickly (and we have A LOT of family), which left us time for fun pictures. He just made us look really good overall. We HIGHLY recommend him

Our DJ was Joe Cusemano and he was wonderful. He took last minute add-ins from us and was able to play everything we wanted. He was really nice and had a great voice.

Overall, we had a wonderful experience with Mike Staff. DEFINITELY recommend.

I can't say enough good things about Melissa our photographer. We were pressed for time to take pictures because of our ceremony starting a little late and she was SO efficient and on top of things!! Never stopped working her butt off. She had so man great ideas and poses for us to do, I know we got such a wonderful variety of pictures!! Melissa was so easy to work with, kind, funny and made the whole experience a memorable one!! We loved her!!!

Doug our videographer was also wonderful! He was so laid back and positive the entire time, making it so enjoyable to work with him! He definitely put many smiles on our faces and was making sure he captured it all. I give my highest compliments to both of these wonderful people!

If you are looking for a great videographer for your wedding, Doug at Mike Staff is the absolute best! We can't say enough good things about him. Not only was he wonderful and enjoyable to work with, but also did FANTASTIC work on editing and putting together our video. We were in awe of how good it turned out and so were all our family and friends! We received so many compliments on it!!! It was grade A work and we are so grateful to Doug for the hard work he put in not only the day of our wedding but also the many hours after. We highly recommend Doug as your videographer in remembering your special day!!!

Melissa was our photographer, and she was also great! She never stopped moving the entire day and was full of wonderful ideas!! She made sure she got as many pictures as she could and really suited our style and preferences, very flexible to work with!!

Hiring Mike Staff Productions was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Kurt was our DJ and he was the best, everyone was asking how we got so lucky to get an amazing DJ. He knew my husband was a rock fan, so he created instrumental versions of rock songs to play during dinner. Everything was super organized and they had captured all our notes.

We had gotten referred to Mike Staff for videography from a friend, who had used them for their wedding and said their video was the best thing that came out of their wedding, so we had high expectations. Videography was a winner as well. Rocky and Anson did an amazing job and made us feel so relaxed on our wedding day. They were fun but still professional.

Upgraded my package within 3 weeks of the wedding to include 2 photographers - absolutely worth it if in your budget. Professional, individualized service. Mike staff helps you to pick your own DJ and your own photographer out of those available for your date. Absolutely recommend to anyone getting married in the Detroit area.

Mike Staff was a breeze to work with. We bundled DJ and photography. We went to their office in Troy and were shown videos of three photographers and 3 DJs and were able to pick which we thought would work best for us. The videos had a interview with each person and examples of their work, so it was very helpful. We selected John Richmond and he was so great! Very friendly, dealt very well with our large familes, had a great sense of humor and kept things light and fun. We would definitely recommend him in the future! For a DJ, we had Josh Baker. He was wonderful, too. We talked and hammered out the details of the evening. At the reception, he kept me in the loop on the timeline and checked in with me throughout the night to make sure I was happy with everything. I would recommend him to anyone!

We were fortunate enough to have Derek from Mike Staff Productions as our wedding dj and my husband and I are so happy with our choice!

Our vision for our wedding day was to find a way to mix our quirky, oddball selves into the mold of a traditional wedding, and I think Derek's creativity set the perfect mood for our day. Derek was willing to come early in order to play the music for our ceremony. He had all of our requests from Star Wars to Icelandic indie music to a rather spectacular Michael Jackson dance- off. We received so many compliments afterwords from guests who appreciated having a "real dj" at the wedding- one who used turntables to match bpms. Derek is a talented dj and he was able to help us set just the atmosphere we wanted for our day.

Mike Staff productions was very easy and accommodating for us to work with. When we met with them, they clearly had a number of djs of all genres to fit any couples' preferred style. It was clear, too, that they had plenty of experience because they were quickly able to hone in on the perfect dj for us. We really appreciate the ease and quality we had in our dj services!

We went to meet with the sales guy at Mike Staff Productions. We reviewed videos of all of their DJs and Randy walked by and we talked with him for a little while. We clicked with Randy right away. We chose him to be our dj. He said he had been to our venue before and loved it. The process to book was super easy and they even set up an online account for you to make payments. They send you emails and letters in the mail about when you will be contacted to go over the details of your event so you are never wondering when you should contact them or are they going to contact you sort of thing. Randy called me the Monday before our event and we went over all of our details. We were right on the same page through the whole conversation. We even picked the same songs with out even knowing it for the bouquet and garter toss. He said when he normally recommends songs for people who don't have any idea what to use for that time of their reception that I had picked all 4 and nobody has ever done that before. He played what we asked him to play, we had people dancing all night long and at the end of the night assured me that I knew what kind of music all of our guests wanted to dance to. He said if he tried to veer away from what I had told him, that the floor was not as full and he would go right back to what I suggested and the floor was rockin again. He really did a great job and was one of the few vendors that I had absolutely no problems with. I would choose them 100 times over if I had to do it all again. Thank you Randy at Mike Staff!!!

Mike Staff was really great. We used them for our photographer, they make you feel so comfortable and they have so many options for brides with any type of budget. Our photographer really maximized his time to get every possible shot and he was great at directing our entire group so transitions between shots went very fast and smooth. They have an online payment system so that you can make payments on their website which is super convenient, and they contacted me multiple times in the weeks leading up to the wedding to get all of the info they needed for the big day. All in all, a great experience for everyone!

Andrew Neer from Mike Staff was our DJ. I could not be happier with how our reception went. He easily catered to my odd requests (my dress lit up, I wanted to make my separate entrance with it and my daddy-daughter dance was humorously choreographed) and KEPT PEOPLE DANCING. My family and friends aren't really dancers, but I am. I have never seen them move so much. 8 months later, my friends, family, and even Co workers bring up at least once a week how much fun my reception was. I absolutely loved working with everybody at Mike Staff, also. I highly recommend MSP to everybody!!

Mike Staff Productions was the perfect choice. The entire staff was so welcoming and helpful while we were planning our wedding. We had Kevin as our DJ and he surpassed our expectations. Everything that we wanted played, was played and I'm pretty sure EVERYONE at our wedding was up and dancing. We had numerous people come up to us and tell us that our DJ did an outstanding job and he definitely did. I absolutely recommend Mike Staff and if I ever need a DJ in the future, I will be using them again!

Mike Staff is the best! They really came through for us at my daughter's wedding this past weekend. Mike Dembs was our DJ, and we couldn't have asked for a better DJ. He is professional, attentive, and so personable. He even met me to pick up a cd of my husband and daughter's music for their special dance so it would turn out perfectly. The hall said that he is one of the best DJs that they have had!
Greg Bush was our videographer and he is so nice and accommodating. He even brought the boutonnieres to the church when the florist made a mistake and left them at the hotel. He got some really great shots, and I'm sure that the video will be fantastic! I am so happy that we hired Mike Staff. If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would!

Me and my husband used Mike Staff for our wedding on September 21, 2013. Randy Parker was our DJ and he was amazing from beginning to end. We highly recommend them. Our videographer Rocky was fantastic as well. They were on time, extremely professional and best of all Randy was very open minded about music choices. When we had questions about our final balance they were responsive and super helpful and fair. Our wedding was diverse in every way: age, nationality, ethnicity, religion, etc. So, with guests coming from Singapore, Ireland, Bermuda, Fort Worth, TX and everywhere in between, it was critical that everyone felt like the reception was fairly balanced in the music choices. Randy made choices of course. But he also made our guests feel comfortable with coming over and making their own selections so no one felt like it was too tilted either way. Rocky always checked back in with me to see if we wanted him to stay longer instead of just packing up and leaving. They were awesome!

We met with Tim Stolkey to find out more about Mike Staff Productions - he was the only DJ we met with and almost as soon as we walked out of the office, we knew we wanted him. We all hit it off immediately, talking about music and getting ideas. A week before the wedding we had a meeting to go over final music choices, introductions, things like that. At our ceremony, everything was perfect: our recessional song was an a capella version of 'Here Comes the Sun', and as soon as it began and we were about to walk back up the aisle, the sun came out. Amazing. At our reception, Tim came to me maybe two times to ask about songs that had been requested and he was unsure about. I really appreciated that. He was amazing and helped so much with our perfect day.

Very easy planning having DJ, Photo, Video with one company. Easy to set everything up and they were great in assisting us with picking who would be best to work with based on our needs. As the date got closer we didn't have to worry about contacting them ... they contacted us.

All the staff were very professional, helpful, engaging, and just plain fun to be around.

Jason (Video): He was great at staying "incognito". You never saw his camera coming. A couple people in the wedding party even said all of a sudden they would realize they had been taped as he walked away with the camera down at his side.

Randy (DJ): Randy was very focused on giving us what we wanted. His goal was to be sure we were happy with the event. He did a great job as MC. When people weren't dancing, he changed up the music to get everyone out there. He played all the music that was a must and really understood what type of music we wanted from the suggestions we sent. The event flowed flawlessly. I received many compliments on how fun the night was!

Jim (Photographer): I cannot think of enough adjectives to say how great Jim is. The Bride is not fond of being on display and is uncomfortable being posed. Jim understood this and even embraced it. He came up with GREAT ideas for pictures that were fun for her to do and will also create lasting memories. He called more than once before the wedding day and really set us at ease. He showed us some of his pictures throughout the day and that man has an amazing talent, what a great eye. Went to a park after the ceremony and the bridal party raved about how much fun they had and how good he was at coming up with great ideas for pictures.

It was nice not having to worry about pictures, video and music and to leave it in their capable hands. So glad we hired them!

We loved working with Mike Staff Productions for our wedding DJ. Tim is incredible and very personable! We had friends and family members telling us during the wedding, "This guy is amazing!! Where did you find him?!".

Tim was the guy that we first met when inquiring about their DJ services, and my husband and I immediately felt at ease about working with him. He answered all of our questions and concerns and asked us questions to learn about who we were as a couple to decide which DJ would match our needs. We felt that he genuinely cares about the service he provides and satisfying his customers needs. By the time we left our appointment, me and my husband knew that we wanted to work with Tim! But we had 3 other appointments to attend, so we decided to wait until the end of the day. All the other appointments were disappointments because the other DJ companies seemed to have pushy/tacky/outdated DJs or the cost was way out of our budget. Mike Staff's DJ package was pretty all-inclusive and affordable!

Originally Tim was not available for our wedding day, but he made it work, and we are SO HAPPY he did! We wouldn't have gone with anyone else! He was super flexible and responsive during the wedding day (there was a power outage on the wedding day due to a huge storm and we had to use back-up generators and everything was pushed back half an hour). During the entire time, Tim was very calm, professional, and interactive with our guests. He kept everything running smoothly and we couldn't be happier!

Thank you so much Tim for everything!! :)

I recently used Mike Staff Productions for my August 30th wedding for DJ services and was blown away by how professional and accommodating everyone within the business was. Choosing a DJ without having a sit down meeting can be nerve racking, but they made the process so easy and flawless that I never had a concern regarding which service I was choosing. With me living out of state and planning this wedding long distance, it was reassuring to be able to watch videos of each DJ that was available and pick the one we wanted directly.

Everyone in the office that I was in contact with was polite and amazing. Emails and phone calls were answered immediately, which is important when planning a wedding!

Kevin was our DJ and if I had to do my wedding all over again, I would choose him again and again. He was helpful with song choices, answered emails/calls/texts immediately, and was very professional. Our reception timeline was not followed exactly to the minute, but he was very flexible finding other songs to play as fillers until we were ready for the formal dances, etc.

I am very happy with my decision to go with Mike Staff Productions for my wedding DJ. I cannot say enough great things about this company. I have been recommending them to all of my friends and family getting married!!

They all are very easy to work with and very appreciative of your business. It was a great experience and my wedding reception was one everyone in attendance will remember. So many guests said how awesome the music and lighting was. I didn't think we would get the different colored lighting, but that was all included!

Mike Staff Productions is amazing and I definitely recommend them to anyone needing a DJ!!

Thank you, Mike Staff Productions!!

My husband and I are SO happy that we chose Mike Staff for our DJ and photography services for our wedding! Our DJ was Randy and he was absolutely FANTASTIC! I was able to speak with Randy prior to the wedding and I told him exactly what we did and did not want and he executed our wishes flawlessly! We were engaged in Disney so I asked Randy if he could throw in a few Disney love songs with some of the dinner music and he picked the perfect songs to go with the rest of the flow! There was never a dull moment on the dance floor and I really loved how he didn't play many slow songs at all, it kept the party going! His personality was a great match with that of mine and my husband so we worked together really well! He also got along so well with our photographer John, also from Mike Staff and also AMAZING! We had a change of scenery for the day when rain kept us from getting married outside, but John took fabulous pictures and I didn't even notice the hotel walls in the background! He got all of the important shots that we wanted as well as some really great candids from the dance floor. I would recommend Mike Staff, especially Randy and John, to any bride and groom planning a wedding. The price was perfect for the amazing service that we received. Even now working with the photo department on getting our album together has been so easy. Great people, great company. Thank you for making our wedding day so spectacular!

We used Mike Staff Productions for our DJ and Photography services.
Our photographer Chris Z. was great! He was a pleasure to have hanging around with us all day. He was easy to talk to, fun and had a lot of great ideas to. I would definitely use Chris for any future photos we may need.
Our DJ was Matt B. He was great! Very professional and detail oriented. We were concerned about the volume level. We had several guests with hearing issues and didn't want anyone to be uncomfortable. He was very concerned about that and made sure throughout the night that it wasn't to loud and that all our guests where comfortable. We were able to dance, listen to the music and talk with our family and friends without straining our voice and that was very important to us.
Tim was our contact at Mike Staff. He was also very easy to talk to and was great at determining what DJ and what photographers would best fit us. The customer service was awesome! Tim always got back with us right away if we had any questions.
We got nothing but complements from our family and friends on our DJ and Photographer. Everyone we had talked to said our wedding was the best wedding and reception they had ever been to.
Everyone at Mike Staff was very helpful anytime we had questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend Mike Staff to anyone looking for DJ and Photo services.

Awesome job!! They even came back for my second reception because I got sick at my wedding. The only complaint I had was the dj did not know what to do after I got sick during the cake cutting. But no one knew I was sick and the party kept going. I also wished i would of used them for pictures too. very nice company.

My husband and I got married about 2 weeks ago and one of the most important things for us at our wedding was to make sure everyone was dancing. We hired Mike Staff as our DJ because we had heard good things about them and we could not have been more happy! Everyone at our wedding was on the dance floor all night and when the last dance came our guests didn't actually want to leave because the dancing had been so amazing. We had also used Mike Staff for our ceremony music and cocktail hour and everything was just as I had imagined! I could not have asked for a better DJ. Thank you Mike Staff!!!

Couldn't be happier with the work Mike Staff did at our wedding. I loved the easiness of the initial meeting and the fact that our liaison was honest with what was and was not worth it. They aren't just trying to sell you the biggest package. They identified our needs and specified what the most cost efficient package would be. The have tons of professionals to choose from and give you recommendations based on your personality and style. You get to choose who you work with and in order to pick they have portfolios of their work.
Jim VonLuven was our photographer-amazing! He is such a great guy and went above and beyond for both our engagement session as well as our wedding. We are still in the process of completing our book and the most difficult thing is the vast array of pictures we have to choose from. Jim also assisted with venue suggestions for our engagement session and was accommodating to specific pictures we wanted. Our DJ was great also, I can't remember his name, but he kept the dance floor going the entire night! Even when the lights were turned on at the end people were still lingering and I attribute that to the vibe the DJ set for the whole night. I haven't seen or videographer work yet, but I am sure that did not fall short of excellent either.

My husband and I had Tim Stolkey from Mike Staff Productions DJ our wedding. Prior to our wedding, Mike Staff as a company was extremely helpful, organized and efficient, one of the easiest vendors to work with. Then the wedding! Not only did Tim take the time to go over our exact timeline of events, he went above and beyond to make our night amazing! Tim had our entire wedding on the dance floor and people actually boo-ed when he called the last dance! We were so happy with Tim and Mike Staff and highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding!

He was professional, friendly, hard working, and fun to work with! We highly recommend Mike Staff to any bride and groom!

Isacc was awesome as well! We loved our videographer! He was with us the whole time getting every important shot! We have only seen our highlight video but we absolutely love it! We have watched it so many times already! Thank you Mike Staff

Dj and Videographer were great! Several of our friends had chosen Mike Staff for their weddings, so we knew what a great job they would do! They have an extremely helpful website and blog, full of ideas and suggestions, and they were always easy to get a hold of and quick to respond. Our DJ did the music for our outdoor ceremony, as well as our reception and our dance floor was filled all night! Our videographer was also there all day and did a great job capturing all the important events of the day!

Mike Staff Productions assisted my husband and I with our wedding planning from the very beginning. We used their talented staff for our dj services, photography and videography. From the early communication and planning until the day of services, MSP displayed professionalism and such amazing talent. During the day, it felt as if their staff were a part of our family. Chris Zeimann and Lynn Maslowski, our photographers, worked flawlessly as a team. Their attention to detail and artistic view throughout the day was so experienced. Jeff Wright, our videographer, was so personable and flexible. He blended in and got the shots he needed as the day went on. Erik Hodge, our dj, was so much fun. Speaking with each of these talented professionals before our date was non-stressful and exciting. They asked great questions and knew exactly what we were picturing for our special day. A week in advance, I had spoken to each of them and we were all on the same page for our day. MSP staff were so flexible and so much fun to work with. I would HIGHLY recommend MSP!

Kurt Colone from Mike Staff was incredible. I wanted a wedding where everyone could leave and say that it was one of the most fun weddings they've ever been to. The guests had an amazing time. I was worried that a DJ might be cheesy, but that was definitely not the case with Kurt. He was kind, professional and knew exactly how to read the crowd. When we told him we wanted to do a fun Motown entrance, he took that idea and ran with it and came up with a really amazing version for us to come out to.

I would recommend him to anyone. My husband and I were SO pleased with our decision. Thank you Mike Staff and Kurt!!

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Mike Staff Productions was to work with for our wedding! From our first meeting in the Troy office, we were blown away with the friendliness and professionalism of their staff. In the planning process, Mike Staff was so easy to work with, and was available to answer any questions we had. Our photographer, Dennis, shot our engagement pictures which turned out great, and it was nice to meet him and get to know him before the wedding. We also had a second photographer for the wedding, Beth, and she did a great job as well. Our DJ, Matt, called me the week before the wedding to go through all of the details and learn any special instructions. Matt did a wonderful job of keeping the evening moving along, and keeping guests out on the dance floor. Our videographer Doug did a great job of staying out of the way - we barely knew he was there, which is a good thing! We received a "sneak peak" of our wedding pictures, and we cannot wait to see the rest. With Mike Staff, you are given all the rights to the photos, which means you own them and can print them on your own. If you are looking for a DJ, videographer or photographer - go with Mike Staff... You won't be disappointed. Thank you to everyone at Mike Staff who made our day amazing!

Matt was WONDERFUL! He was extremely professional and kept the dance floor moving the entire night. I couldn't have asked for a better night. My goal for wedding was for it to be a great party and I told Matt that was what I wanted and that it started with him and man did he deliver!!!
The only semi-negative comment I have is that there were family members that requested a song that wasn't played. This was only brought to my attention the day after the wedding so there wasn't anything I could do to help, which is whatever! Whenever I requested a song, Matt played it the very next song, he was amazing. I partied my ass off and so did everyone else!
And he even did an encore!!! And never once complained that "Call Me Maybe" was played multiple times throughout the evening.

Our photographer was Chris Ziemann. Since we have previously seen his work, I will rate the value as a 5 assuming we will receive the same fabulous quality that we previously viewed when selecting him. He was on time, professional, funny, helpful, calming, and overall a pleasure to have around. Sometimes photographers seem to be everywhere and into everything, intrusive and annoying, but not Chris! The second photographer was Keri, and she was great too. Would definitely recommend them!

Mike Staff offers the most professional and attentive DJs around. Our DJ went above and beyond our expectations and made our reception a huge success. From the music, to making sure everything/everyone stuck to the schedule, to making us a CD of all of our song choices, they were perfect! I just can't say enough great things about them. From the initial meeting and picking out our perfect DJ to our reception night, Mike Staff Productions conducted everything with the utmost perfection I have ever seen! I have witnessed not so great DJs at weddings and knew that having a great DJ was very important to keep our reception going. So glad I went with Mike Staff Productions!

Wow!! I can not say enough wonderful things about Mike Staff Productions. We used Mike staff for DJ, Photography and Videography. The team worked together so well. We were truely blessed to have such amazing people working for us on our wedding day.
DJ-Erik
Erik spoke to me the week of the wedding to make sure all details were lined up for the big day. On the day of Erik called both me and my fiance and let us know that he did bring an additional DJ with him that evening because his wife and him were going to have a baby any day. (We thought that was so nice of him to let us know and we understood completely) He did an AMAZING job with everything throughout the reception.
Photo-Nicole
Nicole called me several times prior to the wedding day to make sure that we had the timeline set, special photos set, etc. One the day of the wedding they came and started with pictures of my dress, invitation, etc. Then it was time to get ready. They were aware of all the little details to photograph and did awesome. We got a sneak peek of our pictures back and they are AMAZING. We can not wait to receive the rest.
Video-Will
Will arrived at the hotel and got right to work along with the photographers. Will was very good with the camera and made sure to capture the special moments. We can not wait to get our video back.

I am so happy that we chose Mike Staff Productions to do all three services. We are so impressed with there business and I have given several newly engaged ladies there information.

I'm so happy we hired this company for our videography. The videographer (Doug) was very pleasant and professional. He did a great job capturing important moments of our wedding and reception...and there were lots of things I saw in the video where I said to myself "I didn't even know he was there when that happened!"--very unobtrusive. Several people in my wedding party also commented on how great he was. And the final edited product turned out amazing--Jason was very involved with that too. I highly recommend this company!

I can’t say enough about Mike Staff Production. As a bride and as someone who has attended several weddings we all know it comes down to the food, drinks and DJ. Mike Staff Production has done several weddings I have attended and has done an amazing job. They keep the crowd going, they triple check to make sure everything is accurate and in order and they go above and beyond “normal” DJ duties. Our DJ checked with the venue on things that he saw we were concerned about but could not get an answered which has nothing to do with his job. I bet there are less expensive DJ’s out there but than you can expect an empty dance floor and disappointment. Mike Staff Productions doesn’t disappoint.

Both our Photographer and DJ were very flexible with our schedule. There were a couple times where we had to change something on the fly and it never phased either of them. They were always ready to go!
Both were also very personable and made us all feel very comfortable even as they remained extremely professional. You could tell that they were very experienced and loved doing their jobs.
They were both very good about calling to set everything up and making sure that all of the right questions were asked. They let us know what it was that they normally did but they were very flexible and willing to do pretty much what ever it was that we wanted or had in mind. We really didn't change anything from what their usual routine is, they have it all down to an art and it all comes together beautifully!
I would definitely recommend them!

I hired Mike Staff Productions to do my wedding. My DJ's name was Lee Walsh. Both Lee and Mike Staff Productions were outstanding. My main concern was getting a DJ who was cheesy and how didn't know how to keep people on the dance floor. I had no reason for any concern with Lee. He was totally professional, respectful, and polite to all my guests and I did not even know he was there during my reception with the exception that we had non-stop fantastic music. He worked with me to create a music to play and not to play list, and also used his own initiate - within the parameters I gave him - to play additional music at my reception. Everyone had a blast and the music could not have been better. Basically, Lee did everything I wanted and exceeded my expectations. I danced almost the whole reception, as did most of my guests. I would give Lee Walsh and Mike Staff Productions my highest recommendation without any reservation. Go for them, they are terrific.

I loved they offered me a sample of the available DJ's during our "interview" of their company. They even showed me other DJ's that weren't available but were popular since we were curious how the available DJ's added up to the popular ones. I love the choose we made (unfortunately, I can't remember his name). He made one slight error and forgot the best man speech, but quickly corrected it... but how can I blame him with the crazy schedule of events and the surprise bday party in the middle of the reception??? The company was great to work with and I love they gave us 2 CD's of our wedding music so we could have it for years to come.

I asked for a lot of recommendations before choosing a DJ... I wanted to make sure that my reception would be FUN and that people would be dancing! I've been to way too many weddings where it is a chore to get people on the dancefloor, or where as a bridesmaid, I've been told it's my "job" to make sure the dancefloor is never empty. That was never a concern at my reception! I hired Anne Carlini from Mike Staff Productions, and she did a FANTASTIC job! She was professional, classy, respectful, responsive, and read the crowd perfectly! She knew just what to play to get people dancing and keep people dancing! The dancefloor was crowded through the last song of the night!!! Plus, she did a wonderful job as emcee-- pronounced all names correctly, kept the evening on schedule, and really helped with transitions. She checked in with me (the bride) throughout the night and played my requests IMMEDIATELY! Plus she and her assistant were just really pleasant and fun! They were there early with everything set up and ready to go well before any guests arrived, and continued a great job from there! I give them my highest recommendation!

I was also very pleased with my decision to hire Doug from Mike Staff as our videographer! He was really pleasant and a lot of fun. He set us at ease, and seemed to be everywhere during the day-- documenting everything! Initially, I wasn't going to get a videographer, but I am SO GLAD that we did. The whole day is such a blur! And I didn't think about the fact that there are so many things that I wasn't able to see-- all the pre-ceremony music that we selected so carefully, the moms lighting the unity candle, the bridal party processing in... I was hidden in back of the church during all that! Same for the cocktail hour-- I never made it there! We are really excited to get the video to see all the fun that everyone was having and to relive the happiest day of our lives! Plus, the team at Mike Staff has everything figured out. They let you have as much or as little input as you want! Doug even stayed a few extra minutes to get some special footage, and said he was happy to do it! I highly recommend!

Mike Staff Productions provides a superior DJ Service. As the Mother of the Bride I can't speak highly enough of them. They anticipate not just the needs and wants of the customer but also ensure there are back up plans to cover any problem that might arise. The business is clearly well thought out and managed.

Because of the DJ selection process, our daughter and son in law were able to select a DJ that meshed with their personal styles and personalities. Kevin Joynt was a great addition to evening: personable, managed all the details and kept the music and fun going. In all a great business, a great DJ and a great value for the money!

This is the most responsive, organized vendor I have had the pleasure of dealing with. I loved my DJ. Mike Staff is true to there word. When they ask you what songs you want to hear, they actually play them, all of them! I was on the dance floor the entire night. Bob was the best. One fault, he played the wrong version of the song I walked down the aisle too. No biggie, everyone loved it and was so moved. HIRE THIS COMPANY!

To the brides and grooms: Please remember that the DJ and photographers are working their butts off for you, its not that much more to buy them the dinner that you are having! They appreciate it, and it works for you in the end! I would not go without Mike Staff Productions at any other even that we have, we will use them again in the future!!!

He was able to get one song from us, but told us he couldn't find one. To my surprise the very last song of the night was the one he said he said he might not be able to find! I was so happy to hear the live Goo Goo Dolls version of American Girl! Josh not only fulfilled all of our requests but he kept the dance floor full the entire night. I've never seen so many people dancing at a wedding! I would not only recommend Mike Staff Productions, but Josh Baker is their best in my opinion!

Steve Miller of Mike Staff productions is a one of a kind, amazing, fun, fantastic, motivating, blow your mind kind of DJ. I was so impressed by him that there isn’t anyone that I wouldn’t recommend him to. We were able to speak with him well before and email him with any questions. I am sure I wasn’t the only bride he was working with, but he completely made me feel that way. I had told him that dancing was my main priority and our dance floor was jammed from the first to the very last song. He didn’t miss one detail that we discussed or didn’t mispronounce one name! We had a great wedding and Steve made it perfect! We were blessed because our vendors and venue across the board were amazing, Steve was the backbone and tied everything together to make the night completely perfect! Happy New Year Steve and thanks for making mine the best New Years Eve wedding EVER!!!

Mark Sanders and Steve Brushinski were our videographers from Mike Staff Productions. They too were amazing. We had so much fun with them. They were there on time and didn’t mind staying until 1a.m. to capture our New Years Eve wedding and all the special moments in-between. I suffer from migraine headaches brought on usually from bright lights. They were so kind to work around that and make sure that I never had a light glaring in my face! Thanks guys for doing such a great job, I am so looking forward to seeing everything I missed. As all brides know, it was over before you could even blink!

My only worry was that I couldn't speak to the DJ until the Monday before the wedding. I wanted to have everything decided and taken care of 2 weeks before. They were very strict on that.

You may not realize it but your DJ selection is one of the most important choices you'll make for your wedding. Your venue of course, is important, as is the caterer, and later on, I'm sure the videographer and photographer are super important, but on that special day, for your guests, the DJ can make or break the success of your celebration experience. Sure the flowers are nice as are the linens and it's always nice to have a good tasty cake but the music and the music maker are responsible for getting your guests up and having a great time.
We went with Mike Staff because of it's reputation and we allowed them to choose a DJ that they felt would compliment our style the best. They made the right choice with Josh Baker. He was professional, responsible, presentable, intelligent and just perfect for our wedding. From song choices to introductions, to keeping the party going, he was perfect. He has to be the least cheesy DJ I've ever encountered. That was our fear about hiring a DJ and we were so pleased with Josh and his work. He allowed the bride and groom to choose songs and then was able to determine what type of music would be best suited for their type of wedding and used his own good judgement to perfection to choose songs for the rest of the evening. He knows his music and was a wonderful MC. Most importantly, he kept the party going and when our time ended he kept the party "spirit" going in our guests, who did not want to leave. BRAVO JOSH BAKER!!!!

Mike Staff gave us just what we wanted, and our DJ listened to what we wanted to hear and didn't play anything we didn't. The DJ dressed appropriately, and kept the night moving. One thing that really impressed me was that he was so good at what he did not one song wasn't danced to.

My husband and I met Matt about a year ago after we had chosen him at a christmas function and when he called to go over the details of our wedding he remembered us. Out of all the events he does, that says alot to remember a person.Just from our conversation he knew the vibe we were going for. Some of our request he had to work up until the morning of the wedding to find and he even went out to Best Buy the morning of to get my bridal party song. My venue couldn't do the napkin folds I wanted and since he arrived early Matt helped to fold napkins!!! Way above and beyond. My reception didn't end until the lights came on and Matt played 'Last Dance'. I can't say enough about this DJ and this company except, BOOK THEM!!!!!

Mike Staff Productions is a phenomenal company! WE were blown away and very impressed after meeting with Kurt at the office and booked immediately! :o) We picked Steve Miller as our DJ and couldn't have been happier! He was so nice and personal, and really took some time to get to know us, our tastes, our family & traditions...and everything that would make our wedding day perfect! We had fun talking about music together and he had great suggestions as well as listened to my ideas. He even gave me his cell # to contact him during the wedding week with any questions or concerns! He performed our ceremony and reception music and was awesome! He had been to our venue before so was very familiar with the set-up and flow...I really felt good about letting Steve control the pace of the evening :o) Hands down an AWESOME DJ and an AWESOME wedding!

WE also chose Jason's team of videographers to tape the events of the day and I was so impressed! It was like having additional photographers capturing all the special moments. They are very non-intrusive and are so articulate and creative with the shots they get. They took our suggestions for music choices and moments to capture and did an amazing job putting it together in one beautiful video. I know some people may think it's a lot of extra money to add to the budget...but they are capturing things that a photographer can't! After the whirlwind of my wedding day, it was the video that helped me relive the special day since it went by WAY too fast! My husband and I look forward to watching it every year on our anniversary :o) My friends are jealous that we have such a cool video and wish they would have done the same! :o) Hands down a MUST HAVE for your wedding!

I could not say enough about how great our DJ was. Kurt did such an amazing job DJ our reception. It was so professional and so helpful with every aspect of the reception. He could tell he knew so much about what he was doing. Our reception was a such a great, fun, party atmosphere. We had family and friends of all ages on the dance floor all night long! I have never seen the dance floor at the wedding full the whole night for every song. With the huge mix of ages, he still kept everyone going thru each song. Music selection was wonderful and we never had to give him assistance which was nice. He knew what to play and when. He was extremely professional and perfect at introductions, etc. Great DJ!

We also used Mike Staff for our video. These guys were great too! They were with us all day and the best part was they were not intrusive. They did what they needed and captured every moment perfectly. They even stayed later then expected to help us catch the great dancing we had at our reception. I never felt like I was being followed by a camera, never had a bright light in my face. They were very secretive! :0) Wonderful job!

I booked Mike Staff for my DJ and videography.

DJ: My husband and I chose Mac Kelly for our DJ and he was absolutely amazing. People were on the dance floor all night long. This was important to me to have people dance because I have been to some weddings where no one dances.

Videography: I would recommend getting a video of your wedding because it brings your wedding day to life. I really didn’t want a video because I had a photographer but my husband really wanted one so we decided to get it and I will never regret that decision. Mike Staff was very professional with everything. We received the video about a month after our wedding day. Mike Staff also puts a part of your video on Youtube.com for your guests to view which is nice for people to see. I love our wedding video and would recommend Mike Staff to anyone getting married.

The associate in charge of our wedding created a video that was exactly our style. She did a great job working with people to get them to do interviews and was very understanding when I had asked to have my words to my husband retaped. If you're looking for a videographer, look no further.

Mike Staff Productions was the best choice ever. I planned my wedding from Arizona for Detroit and was really worried about my venders. MSP made the process a piece of cake. I talked to them several times and they made me feel very comfortable with their service. I used them for my DJ,(Kevin) and he was terrific. Worked our football theme like magic. They also did our videography and we got so much good footage it was increadable. 6 dvds with the enitre day on it. What more could I ask for. I got a great discount because I used both their services and was very happy. Also how many other companies have a written money back guarentee? They do but you wont need it.

Mike Staff Productions was excellent. Our dj, Kurt Cologne, was phenomenal... very professional, extremely responsive, and all about making our reception memorable. He was able to find a couple obscure songs that I requested at the last minute (the night before). He had an excellent presence while not intrusive. He made all the announcements at the right time (typical ones such as cutting the cake... but also announcing when our martini bar and dessert room were open... and later when our Coney Cart was serving!). Even more impressive was that we ran into him at a bar approximately eight months after our wedding, and he immediately came over to say "hi"--by name! He remembered both my husband and me and how much fun our wedding was. Highly recommended.

One fault, he played the wrong version of the song I walked down the aisle too. No biggie, everyone loved it and was so moved. HIRE THIS COMPANY! He went over EVERY last detail with us in respect to announcements and music.... and was willing to do EVERYTHING we asked, even some things out of the norm. Our guests had a hard time finding a song or two just to sit down and take a break from dancing. The dance floor was always packed. What a great night!

We hired Mike Staff Productions, but more specifically Mike D. to be our DJ. We liked the format that Mike S. had in helping to choose a DJ. They show you videos of everyone that is available on your day so you can see them preform the service you are hiring for. It made our choice clear and easy to determine Mike D. was our music man! He was very professional, courteous and personable. On our phone conversation with him, he made sure he was pronouncing everyone's names correctly and had great suggestions on songs when we got stumped. When he showed up, he was dressed in a tuxedo and once the main events at the reception were completed, he focused on keeping the dance floor full. He played a great selection of music and incorporated oldies and new stuff. He was very aware of "killer" music and strayed away from that. He kept the party going and everyone liked his music decisions. Would definitely hire Mike D. from Mike Staff Productions again.

We booked Martin Hodge for our wedding because we needed a DJ that could also speak Spanish for my husband's family. I was pleasantly suprised to find a DJ that spoke very fluent Spanish. I must have called about 10 or so DJs and none of them had anyone that could speak Spanish. We didn't give Martin all of our songs until a couple days before the wedding but he did a great job getting all of them, even the Mexican ones that my husband suggested. He also did a great job mixing the many music genres we had going that night. It was a good time for everyone!

At the end of the night the caterer started packing up before he was expecting it, and he handled it very gracefully. I’m really glad we went with him!

I would have rated Mike Staff Productions with a 5 but when we had first started out planning the wedding, Mike Staff was one of the first vendors we contacted to set up a meeting. We were originally going to book photographer, videographer, and DJ with them but they would not give us any deal by booking all three for them so in the end we just booked the DJ service. We ended up picking Josh Baker and he was great! He is very personable over the phone and in person. He was able to find songs that I've only ever heard on BPM and play them at the wedding. He was very professional and did a wonderful job at our wedding!

Mike Staff is quite more costly then other DJ services we were look at, but we wanted a highly reputable company. We also heard horror stories of DJs not showing up so we wanted a company that was well known and had back up plans and insurance. We were very happy - Randy did a fantastic job. He was not cheesy or corny and played an excellent mix of music. He got all of my requests correct.

My husband and I like music that is somewhat non-mainstream, and they were very good about keeping to our preferences. The DJ was not cheesey AT ALL, in fact they do a video "interview" with DJs that they think will match your personality - you watch the video of the DJs kind of selling their personality to you, and then pick which one you like. It was a very unique process and definitely helped in our selection. Our DJ was very professional - I highly recommend!

The interview process was cheesy, and we ended up leaving with an uneasy feeling about who we chose from the DJ intro video. As soon as we left, we called back to ask if our interviewer Randy would be our DJ. We had a great time thanks to our DJ Randy. He was impressed with our music choices, and hit just about every request we had. He kept the dance floor full of both young and older guests. We found out one of our friends used Randy at their wedding 3 years ago, and they were just as impressed...small world!

We were happy with our DJ. He did a good job of keeping people dancing all night. We were a little disappointed during our pre-wedding consultation when he wasn't really listening to us when we were trying to give him an idea of what type of music we wanted to be played. He kept pushing "top 40" on us when we kept saying "motown". It ended up being fine, but I was nervous that he was going to play all of the lastest rap songs when we wanted some more classic. He wasn't obtrusive on the microphone, which was big to me. I didn't want him saying anything except the announcements that were necessary. He was very professional and handled everything without my knowledge. I would recommend Mike Staff to others.

Erik was nice enough to work with. He called me the Monday before the wedding and went over all the details I had previously sent over. He got there an hour and a half before his start time. He did our ceremony music as well and it was great. The problems I had were that he didn’t play hardly anything on our must play list, even though I told him we put them in order of most important to least important, and he didn’t play a special song to my mom I had really wanted. I didn’t remember until the day after the wedding about that, however. I really would have liked more dance music played, but all in all he kept the party going. I had to ask him a few times to change it up, though. He refused to play a song for my brother (because the artist was on my do not play list, so I was OK with that), and did the same to my sister-in-law for a Britney Spears song that I couldn't have cared less about! He was really cool about letting us bring in an outside CD because our friends are in a band- and he played their songs for us as well. Also, my hubby sang to me (Incubus-Drive) and he was helpful in coordinating this in secret. I was kind of miffed, however, that at the beg. off the night he asked me several questions here and there (always interupting me from family & friends) and they were all things we had talked about on the phone. He assured me on the phone that he has ALL the songs (we used some non-mainstream stuff) but the day off he was scrambling to figure out what number song were on the CD's I had provided. In the beginning everyone was dancing, and because we had such a long reception by 10:30-11pm everyone started clearing out. Our Bridal Party stayed on the floor until 1am, though!! Erik said that it was fantastic and uncommon for that to happen at a reception that was 8 hrs long!!!

Issues I had resulted in a last-minute scramble to find a DJ. Mike Staff Productions was incredibly accommodating and immediately had three DJ's for me to choose from.

I went with Mike Staff because they have a well known name in this area. I was disappointed with the DJ we had. We paid more for our DJ then other and her assistant did most of the work.

While Mike Staff Productions was pleasant enough to work with they cost a lot more than the average DJ in the area and I definitely feel a little jipped out of my money. We had Bob for our wedding and were assured that he was pretty much THE best, no bad reviews and what not. He was very professional but I was frustrated that we were not allowed to meet him until the wedding day and he brushed off any attempt of communication until the week before. I gave him a list of music my family and I had worked on very hard, I spent hours listening to music to make sure I would have songs that fit everybody's taste.

I also had a list of NO's. Well he did great during dinner but as soon as the dance songs started it was like my list had never even been made, he stayed to the genereal idea of music but there were some songs that I definitely did not want played that he played anyways. It was very disappointing, and on top of that he was supposed to announce my godparents anniversary when asking them to join us in our first dance, but he only announced their names.

I booked DJ and Videography services with Mike Staff because of the discount that they were offering. I am VERY happy with Videography and he did a great job shot the video and gave me a wonderful memory when I watch the DVD. However, I am not happy with the DJ at all!! First, the music, he played each music WAY too long and we were stuck with one song for very long time. Although we told him that we wanted 80's music, the music selection that he played during my wedding was very hard to dance with. A lot of my guests couldn't dance with the music that he played so they just either left the ballroom nor sat on the seat. PLUS when he announced/introduced my bridesmaid for her speech, he said "Christopher" instead of "Christina". I am very disappointed.

From all the great reviews of Mike Staff Productions that I read on other websites, I really expected things to go more smoothly. The DJ wasn't awful, but he certainly didn't live up to our expectations.

We met with a company rep who talked with us about our musical tastes and then recommended Dave Copeland as our DJ. We paid $1000 for 6 hours of music, which is a pretty good deal. We were assured that Dave was the right DJ for us and was familiar with our style.

We wanted our wedding to be a big party, and were inviting a lot of older family members who loves to dance, as well as some friends our age. We wanted a mix of what we loved and some fun stuff the older people would dance too. We said no rap, no 80's rock, and no classical. We gave him a HUGE list of songs to play and songs not to play. He said that whil he wasn't all that familiar with our style (thanks for lying, company rep) he understood what we wanted.

A few days before the wedding we made some small revisions to the ceremony songs. We reiterated to Dave what we wanted, to which he said "I am a professional, I know what people want to dance to". I should have seen that as a sign.

Dave made a few key mistakes, things that maybe not so many people noticed, but that my husband and I were upset about having to deal with on our wedding day:
- he stopped the bridesmaid intro music before all the girls were down the aisle. He had a list saying that there were 4 girls, but he stopped after 3.
- he had everyone out on the dance floor dancing to Proud Mary and fun 60's and then he played "Strokin" and "Blister in the Sun" back to back. Umm, songs about masterbation aren't appropriate for a wedding and everyone cleared the floor.
- he played our first dance song again later in the night, which we hadn't dicussed and didn't want
- We wanted our pre-ceremony music to be fast and upbeat and get people ready to party. We requested Bright Eyes, Wilco, White Stripes, etc and told Dave to fill in with similar songs or ask us for more songs. He filled in with Norah Jones and Edwin McCain (I'll Be). Not the mood we wanted!

If you aren't that picky about music, Mike Staff is a good option at a decent price. But if you really care about music and what is played, I would look elsewhere, or give the DJ a play by play, do not deviate from, detailed list.

We were very disappointed in Mike Staff Productions. We hired them after our initial meeting based on all the positve reviews we had heard. We went with Tom Downey, while he didn't necessarily do anything wrong, he wasn't anything spectacular either. We never even heard any of our "Must Play" songs including the most important song that was playing when my husband proposed. He also took off his coat for most of the reception, rolled up his sleeves, and took his tie off. He wasn't the most professional looking person. He was fine overall, but definitely not worth the expensive pricetag.

I would not recommend this DJ. The place you meet is nice enough and the people you meet in the first initial "sales meeting" are really nice and look great. You get to sit on nice leather couches and watch videos of DJ's and then look at a review book for those DJ's (which are, of course, all good) and choose your DJ. We chose one we thought would be good for us and were assured he would do a great job for the specific things we wanted for our wedding. Well...we didn't get it and it was an expensive mistake. We wanted a Detroit Pistons theme for our entry, we specifically requested this, he played Hells Bells?? at a Christian wedding?? He played the wrong daddy/daughter song so that I had to stop an correct him and he didn't play ANY of the songs I requested all night. When we did our review we expressed all of this and never received a contact back. If you want anything specific for your wedding, you won't get it here!!!
