Looking for tips on how to hire a wedding DJ, and want to know what potential problems and issues await?

Surf & Sand Resort Wedding DJ [HD VIDEO]

This is just two short clips I took right before a reception on a wedding I DJed last August at the Surf and Sand Resort in Laguna Beach. They opted for up-lighting, cake spotlighting, and I also provided music and microphones for their Ceremony (sorry no footage) on the terrace overlooking the ocean.

Nixon Library Wedding DJ [HD VIDEO]

An incredibly well coordinated, highly produced wedding from the coordination team of Jenn Yamauchi in Los Angeles. I only did Reception for this wedding, I believe.

My clients were very nice, the bride was so incredibly grateful, and didn't want the dancing to end even though only a few of her friends were left. They had me Uplight in amber, and put up a floral pattern behind their sweethearts' table, and spotlight the cake. The lighting really took effect when the sun went down, and the room … Continue Reading ››

Franciscan Gardens Wedding DJ [HD VIDEO]

Very short video of a wedding I did at Franciscan Gardens in San Juan Capo. It's a very scenic and quiet courtyard nestled between buildings on the busy stretch of Camino Capistrano. It's reminiscent of romantic court yards in Italy, like the one Nuovo Cinema Paradiso is in (if you don't know what I'm talking about, you really should see that movie!).

Spotlights and GoBO might be lighting options for this location, but to be totally frank, this place is so pretty by itself, you wouldn't really need it.

I love … Continue Reading ››
