Thanks so much for the lovely dvd! We love it and although we booked quite last minute, we are so so pleased we booked you. It captures the day in a different way to photos, and makes it somehow more real that it did actually happen and wasn’t a dream! -Joanna Williams wedding 05.17.17 at Grand Plaza.
“This looks so great! I’ve already shared this video so many times. It really captures the day. I cant believe you were able to capture it so exactly. Thank you! Thank you!” -Cheri Holwerda, Wedding 06.09.17 at Post Card Inn, St Pete Beach

We had a fantastic experience with the team at Celebrations! They were very professional and very attentive to detail to ensure that every picture was perfect. We had one photographer with the Groom party while getting ready and 2 with the bridal party getting ready. We then had all three for the ceremony and pictures afterwards. The team were very happy to take as many great pictures as they could and to make use of the fantastic backdrop that we had at the Don CeSar hotel. We also used Celebrations for the videography which included drone footage. Everybody at the wedding enjoyed the drone and the footage that we have received back is truly spectacular. The team stayed throughout the night and continued snapping away during our reception which went on late into the night. We had excellent communication with Celebrations throughout the whole process (which was very important as we flew from England for our wedding) and I would highly recommend their services. – Katie O’Donoghue, wedding May 23rd at The Don CeSar

Our daughter’s wedding was this past weekend and Celebrations was one of the first vendors we booked for photography, videography and the DJ. From the moment we contracted with them, everyone was responsive and helpful with our somewhat unique situation, the bride and groom and most of the guests are hearing impaired. This makes for a challenging situation regarding communication and instruction from the photographer. And for the DJ playing music and keeping the party going with guests who can’t hear it. Stephanie did an awesome working with us to make this an amazing event. Randy was outstanding as the coordinator and managed the video and drone shots, as well. We can’t wait to see what he does putting all of it together in a video for us. Joe, our photographer was amazing. He did not stop for 6.5 hours to capture every moment on film and clearly was an experienced professional, even faced with a challenging assignment. Chance, our DJ was the best! he managed to keep the party going, even with the guests spread over three adjoining areas and many of them hearing impaired. Thank you to Stephanie, Randy, Joe ad Chance for making this the perfect day we envisioned. You are the best! -Diane Ronghi, wedding May 20th at Hyatt Regency Clearwater

“Celebrations of Tampa was a pleasant surprise to work with at my daughters destination wedding held at Shepard’s in Clearwater Fl. They were on time and very accommodating! High energy photographers with great attitudes extremely flexible ready and willing for anything! The pic and videos turned out amazing including sunset pics! As good as everything turn out the most amazing part was the quick turn around time after the wedding. My guess is they can’t always do this but in our case we had video and pics within one week of the wedding! Very impressive!! If there was a stumbling block for me personally it was paying for their services in full before the wedding but they did as they said and all turned out wonderful. They are also priced very fairly in the industry. You could easily spend thousands more and not get anything any better. I’d highly recommend them to anyone! -Ken Stout (father of bride) wedding May 6th at Shephard’s Beach Resort.

“Short and simple: Celebrations of Tampa Bay is great. I recommend them to anyone who is in need of a photographer, videographer, and/or DJ. Stephanie, the office manager, was so helpful. Randy was also helpful with my million questions before booking. Jaime our photographer was AMAZING!! He went over and above during our engagement shoot and wedding. Randy was also amazing as our videographer. He captured special moments that will we get to watch throughout the years (as did Jaime!). Chance was our DJ, and get got and kept the dancing going. Although, he mispronounced my name after practicing several times (minor hiccup) and left out the introduction of the grooms’ parents and a bridesmaid/groomsman. Overall, the photography and videography services were wonderful, and even with the name issue, I would still recommend them.” -Carola Appugliese wedding 03.10.17 at St Pete Women’s Club
“Absolutely amazing video and photos for a reasonable price. They are so easy to work with and are real professionals. Their drone and video service took our breath away. They captured every moment of our wedding so beautifully. Thier commitment, to you, to their art, and to capture the perfect shot is evident from the moment you reach out to them, on the big day, and after. Randy was a pleasure to work with. Joe, one of thier photographers, had an amazing eye and captured photos that looked like they were out of a magazine. My wife and I could not be happier with the outcome. Thank you so much Celebrations of Tampa Bay!”

“We are so glad that we booked Celebrations! We can’t say enough good things about Jamie, the photographer. He took fantastic engagement shots, and really helped to put us at ease. During the actual wedding, he seemed to be everywhere without ever being intrusive! The guests had so many complementary things to say about how great he was, and how many photos he seemed to take! Stephanie, their coordinator, was always really helpful. She was so prompt about answering questions and clarifying anything we needed! Chancey, the DJ, was also excellent! He did a great job at reading the crowd, and managed to keep people on the dance floor the entire night! He was also really accommodating when I asked him to do a birthday shout-out to one of our guests, and with song requests. If you’re considering booking Celebrations, definitely do!!” -Cubby Swift, wdg 03.03.17 at The Sandbar, Anna Maria Island.

“We used Celebrations of Tampa Bay for our DJ, Videography and Photography package. Loved that the group was coordinated. Stephanie in the office is very responsive to questions. DJ chance had just the right music for our celebration and kept everything moving all night so that everyone had a fabulous time! Videographer Randy and photographers Eric and Don captured everything just the way we imagined and the sunset pictures were awesome. Everyone arrived on time and was very professional. This package was a terrific value – the highlight video with drone footage was available quickly and the final cinematic video has allowed us to share the wedding memories with those who couldn’t be there. The photographers and videographers made us feel so special – just capturing our day without being intrusive! Would highly recommend – stop looking and book this group!

Where do I begin?! I am not one to write reviews, but I felt compelled to write one for this company because of the amazing quality of their work. They truly have a passion for what they do and it SHOWS. I am shocked at the passion and professionalism that has come out of this company during my wedding planning process. They are always available, are very supportive, and are open to your ideas. They take their time on their photos and videos. People were in awe during the reception when they showed the “love story” and the footage of me walking down the isle right after it just happened! Please, if you are thinking about using this company for your photos, do not hesitate to book with them!! Take my word for it! I did the all inclusive package and I am extremely happy with my decision. They made my wedding day so memorable. I will be recommending them to my friends and plan on using them in the future whenever I need a photographer. Thank you so much Celebrations of Tampa Bay for making my day a dream come true. I can’t thank you enough for the amazing video and photos you took of my wedding day.

“I highly recommend Celebrations of Tampa Bay! Randy was our videographer for our wedding at Davis Islands Garden Club on April 30th. He was more than we could have ever asked for! Randy was extremely quick to respond to all emails and I could not believe how fast he had our videos ready! Within a couple days, our highlights video was completed, along with the longer version. He produces high quality work and I don’t think any other vendor worked harder than he did on the day of the wedding. From the moment he stepped in the hotel room, he went right to work capturing the day. All of our guests commented on how awesome Randy was. He literally gets down on the ground to make sure he is capturing the best angles and getting great shots. I could not be more impressed with him and his work ethic. Stephanie was also so great to work with. She helped finalize the contract and details for the wedding day. If you are debating on whether or not to add a videographer into your budget, it is a must and you should definitely choose Randy and Celebrations of Tampa Bay! I have watched our video over and over again — best money spent to be able to relive your day and feel all the emotions you did on your wedding day.

“Celebrations of Tampa Bay was the best choice I could have made for hiring a photographer, videographer, and DJ. They have reasonable package deals. Not to mention, my videographer used a drone to capture the entire area of my venue during the ceremony, and then played it on a projector screen during the reception! The guests loved the entertainment the video provided during dinner. Both the photographer and videographer did whatever they needed to do to get the best shots, and I thank them so much for that. The DJ was so cool, to get the crowd going, he danced on the floor with everyone. Celebrations of Tampa Bay accommodated me in every way possible. Not to mention, they got the ball rolling right away when they got to my venue and didn’t waste any time!!!!

“Randy was beyond amazing! His email response time is incredible. Extremely accommodating, polite & professional. VIDEOGRAPHER: They did a phenominal job!! Superb! They were incognito too – barely knew they were there. Never interfered with any aspect of the ceremony or reception. Words cannot express how grateful I am to have these videos. Nothing else can bring us back to that day any better…..still brings me to tears…just breathtaking. Even more grateful because my photographer didn’t do as great a job as I would’ve hoped or expected (not through Celebrations of Tampa Bay…although I probably should’ve hired them for that too).

“Absolutely amazing!!! Seriously the best in the business. My husband, family could not get over how he maneuvered (quickly and discreetly) during the ceremony to make sure he captured all shots. The drones were amazing too!! He flew the drones across the venue and captured the perfect day!! He worked like a dynamic team with our photographer. I’ve only seen the highlight video so far and I was blown away!! He captured the BEST views of our venue. The editing was just perfect. Kept it real but also very cinematic style. The level of service from Randy and his team are beyond my highest expectations. Randy personally and promptly responds to emails (we did everything via email and phone since we planned our wedding from out of state). Stephanie in his office is fantastic too! I was blown away not only by how talented and professional Randy is, but also found my ring bearer’s pillow… not only saved it for me but also shipped it to me!! Overall, one of the best decisions we made for our wedding is hiring Celebrations of Tampa Bay. We couldn’t be happier!!!” -Katya Torres-David wdg 12.06.14 at the Rusty Pelican

“Words can’t express how amazing Randy/videographer was! Between the drone and the projector and all the different cameras set up, I know our video will be amazing. Our guests were raving and said they couldn’t believe their eyes when they walked into the reception and footage from the ceremony was already playing! Just amazing!!! I don’t know any other videographer that has that capability around here. Without a doubt completely happy!!!” -Lindsey Itzkowitz-Sullivan wdg 12.20.14 at Bella Collina Country Club, Montverde, FL.

“It was such a pleasure to work with them from beginning to end. Everything came together perfectly. They made me feel so comfortable and listened all of my thoughts and answered all of my questions they were able to capture all of our special moments . I cannot say enough wonderful things about celebrations of Tampa Bay! They envisioned my wedding the exact same way I did and made my video absolutely spectacular and romantic. Throughout the video there was moments he wanted to cry and others we wanted to laugh it was the perfect combination of our day and I love! I couldn’t have asked for more beautiful video of our wedding.” -Carolyn Hartman-Woodward 11.16.14 at Rusty Pelican

“Our photographer was amazing! He had a wonderful personality and lots of familiarity with our getting ready space and our wedding location. It was truly a celebrity type experience as we did our first looks before the ceremony and got great bridal party shots after the ceremony taking advantage of the sunset on the beach. He was able to capture some amazing shots!
Dave & Randy were able to capture extraordinary footage of our day. This was a splurge because I wasn’t 100% sure I wanted to pay additional for this service but I had read numerous reviews saying there’s just something about the live capture to be able to relive the day. I’m so glad we did! The footage of my family dancing and partying is priceless!
DJ- Randy was our DJ for our night and he was all we could have hoped for! Again going back to the very detail specific- my husband and I gave Celebrations a complete list of songs we wanted to hear with CDs for each part of our day- pre- ceremony, ceremony, dinner, and party. He easily wove the songs we chose throughout the night. Although our music choice was very neo-soul, jazz and old school RnB he was able to tailor the flow to our guests. We had a ball!
All in all- both my husband and I were extremely proud of the work of the Celebrations team. They truly are the best at what they do and made our so very special day the CELEBRATION we wanted it to be and so much more! Thank You!!” -Anjoli Smith-Hill wdg 09.21.14 at the Grand Plaza.

Celebrations of Tampa Bay were helpful through the entire process of planning my ceremony and reception. My DJ was Chance, he was always on point. I knew that I was in great hands from the moment that we spoke and went over every aspect of the ceremony and reception. I would tell anyone to go to Celebrations of Tampa Bay for all of your wedding DJ needs. -Amber Lamar-Anderson wedding 10.18.18 at Hunters Green Country Club (DJ-Chance)

“Celebrations of Tampa Bay. I cant thank you enough for all that you did! I feel I worked with about 5 people and each one was great to work with! Stephanie was the one I worked with the most throughout the weeks and she really made me feel secure that everything was going to be fine. Anytime I had any questions or concerns she was always there to listen and give me tips. Rob the dj I loved that guy so much! He just couldn’t have been any better, he always played the best songs, his variety fit everyone’s taste from the young generation to the older, he was very flexible with the schedule and to not spoil it for other brides, there is something he did that no one expected but we are so glad it happened!!! Video by Dave. when I received the dvds, my heart skipped a beat… I felt like I was watching a Disney movie, I just cant describe how great the video came out. I am officially addicted to my wedding movie :). Last but not least Joe the photographer. He was excellent. He was a really nice guy but you can also tell he was there to get the job done, the pictures prove that point! Thank you Celebrations of Tampa Bay for making my dreams come true. I wish the wedding wasn’t over but at least I have something to always remind me of that special day thanks to you!” -Jennifer Ravelo-Bell wdg 09.27.14 at St Pete Beach Community Center (Photographer-Joe/ Videographer-Dave / DJ-Rob / Uplighting-Stephanie)

“We chose Celebrations of Tampa Bay for our Videography. They were helpful, flexible, approachable, and were a pleasure to work with. From Randy to Stephanie, to every single person that we met, we were extremely satisfied with our wedding day experience. They accommodated last minute changes to our contract with ease, and were willing and capable to manage our large wedding of over 650 guests. The two videographers arrived to myself and my grooms getting ready sites very early and captured beautiful moments between us and our closest family and friends. They were receptive to our needs on the day of the wedding and were so easy to work with. I highly recommend this company for videography for your wedding!” -Jasmine Jacob-John wdg 10.04.14 at Sacred Heart Catholic/Marriott Waterside. (Videographer- Dave)

For my engagement session they sent Kristin I absolutely love her she is so nice and did a great job so I was happy to see her on my wedding day. I had Kristin and Randy the day of the wedding and they were exceptional. they were on time and professional. Kristin played the part of roles that she should not. she help keep me calm. and she help guide me when I was lost. My photos and videos arrived to my home within 4 weeks.

We can’t say enough good things about Randy and how AMAZING he was! He was very helpful at working with us from the beginning. He arrived early to the venue to take some footage of us getting ready and caught some of those most amazing moments that I (as the bride) would have never noticed. He was extremely professional the entire day and worked wonderfully with our other vendors. Randy put up a slide show during the reception of pictures he took all through the day and our guests got to see what was happening “behind the scenes” while the wedding party was getting ready!! It really helped make our wedding special!!!!
I teared up when I seen photos of my husband getting ready! We loved the highlight video that he put out on YouTube!!! All of our friends and family raved about how well it came out and enjoyed reliving the day! And even though we failed to mention which songs we wanted to use in our full length video, Randy was very accommodating and changed them at our request without charging anything additional. Celebrations is a GREAT investment and we HIGHLY recommend their videography. -Matt Pleus wdg 06.08.14 at Palace Grand (videographer-Randy)

Thanks to you & your staff (Stephanie) for providing us (Vivine & Donald) with most excellent service. I am not only please but very happy when I choose Celebrations of Tampa Bay for our wedding photos/video. Adding also to all of the good compliments I have received on the photos/video. I will definitely use your service again, and to also recommend your excellent service to others. Please tell your Photographer & Videographer a big “Thank You”. We are very happy with their performance. Thanks again -Vivine Nigro wdg 05.24.14 at Pebble Creek Golf Club (photographer-Eric/ Videographer-Dave)
They were amazing. During the wedding/reception I hardly noticed them, and I was afraid we wouldn’t get good shots. Nothing could have been further from the truth! Both the posed and candid shots are beautiful. The video they made was also great. They have the whole ceremony. The video also included interview with the guests (not something we talked about beforehand, but I was so happy to see that surprise on the video), and a highlights version with their own music behind. I really liked the very majestic music they had playing over the video. The videographer was packing up at the end of the night (already 30 minutes after the time they were paid for), but my father was about to sing karaoke. I asked him if he could stay and video that one last thing for me. He did, and the last shot of the video is my dad finishing Love Me Tender and then kissing my mom. Such a sweet moment! I could not have been more please with the photography and videography the company provided. When my sister gets married, she plans to use them as well. -Lara Barton wdg 07.17.14 at USF Embassy Suites (photographer-Johhnna/videographer-Randy)
