James was an awesome DJ! He made our wedding day so much fun and got everyone on the dance floor! He was so nice to talk to and very responsive!

Alex, thank you for the kind words and for the opportunity to be a small part of your beautiful day in the Chattanooga mountains. I believe you and Lee have a truly special relationship and will be blessed for many years to come. Please let me know if I can do anything for you in the future. Sincerely, James D.

James was very professional and easy to work with! He took care of everything from photos to being DJ! We had an amazing time even with pouring rain he was understanding and positive!
JD Photography & DJ Service's reply
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!!

DJ

We hired James to DJ for our wedding and he was great! His timing with the music for our ceremony was perfect. He went out of his way to try and get more “stubborn” people out on the dance floor, he was great with all of the announcements, everything was amazing! We would highly recommend him.
JD Photography & DJ Service's reply
Thank you Lindsey for the wonderful review. I'm glad to have had the chance to work with you, Brian, and both your families. I'm glad that once we got grandma on the dance floor, everyone came out and had a great time. God bless you both and wishing many years of happiness together.

Mark H.

DJ

We all were quite pleasantly overwhelmed with James and his wife. They covered our large venue as if they were a team of 12. We could not be happier. He is friendly and in touch with his crowd. As a DJ he knows how to get a party started and keep it flowing. He has a real feel for candid photography to capture special moments. I only have one daughter but if I had more he would handle all of our weddings. Trust this man. Hire this man.

Thank you for the wonderful review, Mark. It was amazing to work with you, Victoria, and the rest of your family. The venue was truly spectacular and we are so thankful for the opportunity to capture your daughter's beautiful wedding. I hope you will let me know if I can do anything for you in the future (Grandkids?? LOL) Very best wishes and God's blessing. James

James did an absolutley amazing job with our photos and with being a dj too! He made our experience stress free and the pictures came out fantastic! I highly reccomend him for any event you have! It was a pleasure.
JD Photography & DJ Service's reply
Thank you, Savannah! It was so much fun working with you and Justin. I can honestly say I had never taken wedding photos in the snow LOL but that still couldn't dampen the wonderful time had by all. 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 $1000. 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.
