Like any Bride and Groom, you want great photos of you and your guests taken at your wedding reception. Instinctively, you’re going to hire a great photographer, but there is one problem. Not even a great photographer can fake wedding images, creating fake smiles or fake dancing. Great photographs will only come about if you hire an amazing wedding DJ. In this article I’m going to discuss the relationship between amazing photographs and a great Professional DJ/Event Host.
A wedding is one of the most memorable, fun and special day’s in a couple’s life, so of course many try and make a dream wedding come true. While a large wedding isn’t necessary, most people will have a reception of some sort. One thing I always advise couples on is that no matter how grand of a wedding you have, two vendors are more important than any…a great wedding DJ and a great wedding Photographer. Most Brides and Grooms concentrate on the wedding venue, food and other things such as flowers but will these choices really make for an amazing wedding? Maybe…maybe not. What really takes a wedding from ordinary to extraordinary is a great DJ. A DJ who is also an amazing Event Host or MC. A great wedding DJ will play all the right music at the right moments, have great sound equipment, tons of backup plans and be fully immersed into the wedding to make sure everything from start to finish is on point.
A great DJ/Event Host will also make sure everyone is where they’re supposed to be at all times for all the important moments such as the first dance, the grand entrance, the toasts/speeches and of course the cake cutting. Also, the DJ/Event Host should posses a very likeable personality, because his or her presence changes the outcome of the guests at a wedding and how they react.
So you’re probably wondering what all this has to do with wedding photography, and let me tell you… a lot! Great wedding photographers will use all their knowledge and skill to capture the best images possible of the wedding, but there lies one issue. What if nobody is having fun or enjoying themselves? What if nobody is smiling? What if nobody is dancing? Well guess what? The pictures are going to come out terribly, no matter who the photographer is. A great DJ will make for great pictures…period.
Like many couples, they spend a lot of money into the venue and food so their guests can enjoy themselves, but what they don’t realize is that the entertainment should be at the top of the list. Remember, a great DJ will make your dream wedding come true, but a great DJ will also help create the best photographs possible for you and your soul mate to cherish for the rest of your lives. You only get once chance at this, so do it right.
