A recent couple exclaimed: “Bernadette and John were so incredibly helpful planning for the wedding and making the day of a great success! They worked together to create gorgeous memories of our wedding day! They worked very quickly in timing gorgeous shots, which allowed us plenty of time to celebrate with our guests. Their organization and flexibility was like no other vendor we worked with. On the day of the wedding, they went with the flow and went out of their way to make my life, as the bride, easy and stress free. I strongly recommend using Bernadette and John. The value they brought to our event was irreplaceable!

  • review rating 5  Senses at Play Has been providing services for our organization for over a decade, and you won't meet a finer, more professional, group of people. The only reason I gave them five stars is that there aren't 10 to give!!

  • review rating 5  John and Bernadette McCall were the first ones I wanted to contact after I got engaged. I have personally worked with both of them while catering events in Key West and I have seen their amazing skills and professionalism. Not only that but they were always so positive and friendly! I was thinking…now I will be the bride so I was not sure how things are going to go. But it was all perfect! Communication with them was wonderful . Bernadette answered all of our questions and she made suggestions for us. John was our photographer and we arranged a meeting with them in their amazing studio to talk about all details before the wedding. 3 weeks before the wedding I injured my knee and had to contact all vendors to figure out a plan ..since I had to be bride on crutches. That was not an issue at all and we had to changed few things to accommodate my situation.John just always seemed to be in the right place at the right time to catch all the action and candid photos that will serve as lifetime memories for us. He was so kind and helpful throughout the entire process and his skill and passion were clearly visible in his work. He made us genuinely smile and knew exactly how to work with our large wedding party (7 bridesmaids and 7 groomsman ) and bride that is on crutches. ….in the most graceful way. Not surprisingly, our pictures turned out beyond beyond perfect. It couldn't have been a better experience. Thank you John and Bernadette for capturing the best moment in our life . Neri & Michael

  • review rating 5  Perfect experience from the first contact with Senses At Play. Through email I could tell John was a fun energetic person to work with! Planning a destination wedding without being able to meet anyone beforehand or visit our ceremony and reception site seems like it would be stressful, but not with John! He was professional and gave me a level of comfort where I felt like "this is all taken care of" and I was right! He really knows what he is doing, and throughout the entire day he was an absolute joy to work with. Because of him I have some of the most beautiful moments captured from my wedding day.

  • review rating 5  John and Bernadette from, Senses at Play, were amazing! The whole Senses at Play team was amazing. We could not have asked for a better photographer. Senses at play set up a photo timeline and stuck to it. Many times before the big day it was reviewed and updated for my preference. John was timely and very was full of patience. When he came to the bridal suite, my bridesmaids and I were running around trying to get ready, he was calm as a cucumber. He was professional and gave great tips for the photos. We received all of our photos within 30 days of the wedding, all edited, all beautiful. My husband and I missed the original email about our photos, and they reached out to us asking if we had received, they made sure we got out photos. Our photos are beautiful, and I do not think they could have turned out any better. Senses at Play really cares about your big day, and they are great at what they do. It shows not only in the photos, but also in how they act during the event. Pick them!

  • review rating 5  Bernadette is amazing and did a wonderful job in capturing our wedding and family photos. I was really impressed with her from my initial contact she clearly explained everything and answered every question in great detail. The pictures were absolutely gorgeous and she went above and beyond to get the best photos and to make everyone feel comfortable and at ease. Bernadette delivered a beautiful set of images that captured many very happy memories. We were thrilled with all the photos and would recommend Bernadette and Senses at Play in an instant.

  • review rating 5  What amazing business owners! This husband and wife team are great at what they do! John was the photographer for our wedding on June 26th 2020. He captured everything I was hoping for and more! Such a natural at making everyone comfortable in front of the camera. I have two children who never have been fans of having their pictures taken and he even managed to get smiles out of them! Everything from "traditional family photos" to "Bloopers" and everything in between. The quality, quantity and turn-a-round on receiving our pictures back was truly amazing! The next time I have professional pictures taken I will 100% be making the trip to have them done with John and Bernadette!
