JD was a great DJ!! You can tell he has done this a time or two, he had a set of games and dances that were fun and was able to keep the crowd engaged but was also really flexible with the things we asked him to say/do. He provided high quality services for an affordable price compared to others. We highly recommend him as a DJ for your wedding!!Dec 17, 2020VerifiedJD Photography & DJ Service's reply
Thank you for the kind words, Rachel. I'm so happy you had a good time! You and your family really demonstrated that Alabama really is a "sweet home" :-)

James was an amazing DJ! He made the day much less stressful and got all of my guests to participate in dancing and activities! From what I heard from my family, he continued playing music for the entire time even after my and my husband left. I 100% recommend him for any event!Dec 16, 2020VerifiedJD Photography & DJ Service's reply
Hi Sarah, Thank you so much for the kind words! Yes, your family and I had a blast playing a little "name that tune" and dancing to some oldies but goodies. :-) Wish you and your new family Happy Holidays and the very best as you start this new life together.

James was an amazing dj!! He made our wedding so special. 8 days before the wedding, our SC venue cancelled on us due to COVID. So we had to move our wedding to charlotte and plan a wedding in 8 days. James was still willing to travel to charlotte even though it made his commute an extra 2.5 hours!! He was incredible and so gracious. Music-wise, James was a rockstar!! He played great songs and was an excellent emcee. Also, he was great at reading the room and knowing when to play what type of songs. We definitely would hire him again!Jul 25, 2020VerifiedJD Photography & DJ Service's reply

I sincerely wish you and your family much happiness and hope you will call on me again when you need help in the future. JD

James is an awesome DJ!! He played from 8 to 12 without a single break, and he played all the music we requested plus special requests from the audience. We cannot wait to have him back! You will not be disappointed when you book James for your next party.Sep 17, 2019VerifiedJD Photography & DJ Service's reply

My husband and I hired James for photography and dj services. Him & his wife were amazing! The photos came out fantastic, I love all the candid shots. The music was great & James had everybody up & dancing! I couldn't have asked for a better photographer/Dj!Aug 19, 2020VerifiedJD Photography & DJ Service's reply
Hi Melanie. We had such a great time with you and Nick in Chattanooga! That was such a beautiful venue. Thank you for your kind words. We definitely appreciate it and hope we can work with you again in the future. Sincerely, James and Nat :-)
- 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. (That’s $625 off my normal pricing!) 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.
