Limelight Photography Reviews From Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples:
“We wanted a wedding photographer who was professional, fun and had a unique style. We hired Limelight Photography because we love their style, and we heard great things about working with them. Even though we were planning our wedding while living out-of-state, they made sure to consistently communicate with us and make sure we had all the information we needed. Rebecca and Michael [of Limelight Photography] did a great job capturing the candid style photos we wanted, while seamlessly blending into the crowd during our ceremony and reception. We were thrilled with how our wedding photos turned out and so happy we chose them!” -Brittany and James | Elegant Navy Blue, Silver and Ivory Limelight Photography Wedding at the Vinoy Renaissance
“Tyler and I both wanted great quality in a wedding photographer and someone who could capture the quality moments of our day, without us needing to pose the entire night. Limelight Photography has such a great reputation in the Tampa area and their services were reasonably priced with the other wedding photographers we were looking at. When we spoke with Jess Orthober for the first time, we were hooked. She was very receptive to our ideas for the wedding and was able to take our approach and emulate them in her process of taking the photos throughout the entire day. The quality of their photos were also amazing; we could not have been happier with the outcome!” -Morgan and Tyler | Pink and Ivory Downtown Tampa Limelight Photography Wedding
“I was really looking for something out of the ordinary that would not look like it was taken on a regular camera. I desired someone with a passion for unique shots outside and indoors and who took the time to plan amazing shot locations, while also having the ultimate clarity in all the photos. Limelight Photography did our engagement session and also our wedding day. Our engagement photos were amazing and our photographer, Jess, was able to make my husband smile naturally which is not an easy feat. She was so attentive and our photos are a work of art. The lighting was beyond something I could ever envision my wedding photos could look like. We have always had an appreciation of great photography, and Jess’s work blew us away. We highly recommend them!” -Kristina and Ryan | Blush, Gold, and Mint Limelight Photography Wedding at Museum of Fine Arts
