As a veteran wedding musician turned photographer, I have worked with MANY DJs and musicians. Many couples don’t understand how important a good DJ or band is when it comes to getting good reception photos. It’s not just the lighting or the songs, the flow and energy that the entertainment brings to the night that can make or break a packed dance floor. Over the past 20 years, I have easily worked with over 200 DJs and local musicians and this is my top 3.
