JD was an excellent dj and host for my daughter's wedding. He was extremely attentive to the details, played some of the best music, and made each guest feel as though they were the life of the party...dance, dance, a lot of dancing! Guest said it was the best reception they've attended. The pictures captured the day, exactly as we wanted! THANK YOU and congrats on a job well done!

Details: Wedding • 100 - 149 guests • 18 - 30 years old • 31 - 50 years old • 51 or older • Pop • Funk / disco • 80s • Country • Top 40 • Outdoor venue

Hi Terri! It was such a great time working with Maggie and PK. They both have such sweet spirits. I'm very happy you all enjoyed the music. I take a lot of pride in recognizing what songs make the guests happy and willing to get on the dance floor. Wishing you and all of your family the very best and hope you have a spectacular holiday season. God Bless, James D

JD showed up on time and went above and beyond to make sure our music was exactly what we wanted. He even went around and double checked everything with us the day of. Very kind and respectful. And thank you very much for taking all the crazy requests everyone wanted. I highly recommend having him as your DJ. Thanks again JD!!

You're most welcome Maeryn. All the requests weren't crazy at all (except maybe "the bunny hop" LOL) I'm very glad everyone had a good time and hope you and Gage have a wonderful life together! God Bless, JD

Hi Brandon, Thank you for your review. It was wonderful to work with you and Gloria and dodge the rain LOL. Your family was great to work with and I think everyone did an awesome job of just "rolling with the punches." It's been my experience that most often things don't go exactly as planned but you guys definitely get the award for making the very best of a stressful situation :-) Wishing you both the very best!!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I am currently offering a special wedding package for both services. You will get 6 hours of photography and DJ/MC support for the ceremony and reception on the day of your wedding plus a two-hour engagement session for $1200. For wedding photography only, my prices start at $550 for 4 hours of coverage and increase $150/hour after that. For DJ/Emcee service only, my prices start at $400 for 4 hours of coverage and increase $100/hour after that. For engagement or family photos, the price is $175 and includes up to 2 hours of coverage. Please contact me for a detailed explanation for any of our services along with the answers to any of your questions. I look forward to meeting and working with you in the near future.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to meet with the client and his/her fiance to talk about the vision of their perfect wedding day. Then we talk about how I can best make that dream a reality. I like to lay out a plan for how the day will go including arrival time, where the bride and groom will get ready, whether we do a first look or not, what time each group will be getting pictures taken, etc. I make sure we cover every detail so nothing out of the ordinary happens the day of the wedding. After the meeting, we schedule a time to do engagement photos and I make sure to touch base with the client a couple of times before the wedding and again the week of the wedding. After the wedding, I take the time to critically look at every photo and only choose those which I would be proud to display in my own home. I edit all of the acceptable photos for color balance and clarity then upload them to a Dropbox folder which only the client will have access to.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    As a respected Digital Media instructor and former live sound engineer, I bring a wealth of experience to my work every day. I have a BA degree in Mass Media instruction and have attended many online and in-person classes over the last 25 years.
