We suggest asking these questions to any DJ or Photo Booth Service you are considering for your wedding day
Do you have back-up equipment?
Yes, we bring back-up DJ equipment to each event including an extra speaker, computer, and cables in case of emergency. We have never had to use it, but we know our clients are counting on us for their big day and want to be prepared in the off-chance it is needed. We of course can't bring an extra photo booth to each event, but do bring extra cables as a precaution, and also have backup plans in place.
What if you are unable to provide service the day of our event?
In our 10+ years in the business, I have never missed an event. If for any reason we become unavailable for your date, we would make every effort possible to find a suitable replacement and refund any deposits. We also have plans in place to provide a back-up in case of emergency. In the unlikely event of an emergency or illness, Megan acts as the "back-up" DJ. Again, we have never missed an event, but want to stress that if something did come up unexpectedly, we would not leave you hanging!
What kind of equipment do you use?
I use high-quality, top-of-the-line professional equipment including a digital music library, Apple computers, a digital mixer for a gapless mix all night, Mackie speakers, and awesome LED lights. For very large events and large venues, ask us about our upgraded sound system. I have invested a lot of time and money in putting together the best sound and light show to help in creating a fun atmosphere at your wedding.
Is your business insured?
Yes, we carry professional liability insurance. Many venues require that companies have this type of insurance in order to perform at their location and any wedding vendor that is serious about their trade should definitely carry this type of insurance.
What do you wear to a wedding?
I typically wear a nice suit, shirt and tie (no cheesy DJ in a tux). Megan typically wears a dress. We are happy to get your input on what to wear for your special day!
Will you travel to a location outside of the Twin Cities?
Yes, definitely! We are happy to travel to weddings anywhere in the midwest. A travel fee will apply and we'll be happy to discuss this with you and make arrangements.
What is your style?
Being a DJ is more than just playing music. As a professional DJ, it my job to help be a host for the evening. I am happy to make any announcements and keep the events of the night moving smoothly. I can announce the grand march/bridal party introduction, cake cutting, toasts, first dance, father/daughter dance, mother/son dance, anniversary dance, bouquet toss, garter toss, requests and any other announcements you need made. I am easy going, enthusiastic and approachable so that guests feel welcome to come to me with requests. With that being said, I am not obnoxious and you will not see me wearing a Hawaiian shirt (hey, unless that's your theme!), making cheesy jokes, singing, or being overbearing as we have all seen many DJs do. I get that the guests are there to have a fun time and listen to good music - not to listen to me talk all night!
Can we help choose the music for the event?
Yes, of course! I will work with you to create a custom playlist just for your event. Some couples have a lot of input on what songs they would like played and others want to leave most of the song selections up to me - and either one is great with me! I have playlists that I have compiled over the years based on what has been popular at weddings that I am happy to share to help give you some ideas of what type of music you might like played. Check out our Resources pages for some song suggestions!
Are you open to weddings of different cultures, nationalities or GBLTQ?
Yes! We'd love to be a part of your event! We have done events for families of all types of backgrounds and don't discriminate. If your event requires a large amount of music that we wouldn't typically have in our library, we are happy to work with you to play some of your special songs as well.
Will you provide an initial consultation prior to booking your services?
Yes, I'd love the opportunity to discuss your event with you! I want you to feel 100% confident in booking us for your special day. For the sake of time, it often works well to connect over FaceTime, Skype or the phone. We will also work together closer to the wedding to discuss details, create a timeline, and put together a playlist. I encourage you to check out our testimonials page and see what our past clients have to say about working with us!
What is needed to reserve our date?
We just require a short simple service agreement along with a deposit to reserve a date. We do receive many requests for high-demand dates and can only accommodate one DJ/photo booth event per date, so if you're sure you want us for your event, book right away!
