    DJ and Photographer for a wedding

    Can anyone recommend a good wedding DJ and/or photographer that is reasonably priced? I am getting married next summer, and need to start looking into stuff like this, so I thought I would come to the best place on the internet to get this kind of advice. Most of the weddings I have been to (not all, though) have had an annoying DJ who tries to make it about themselves and interjecting when they don't really need to, so if you can recommend one who is not like this then I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance

    You will pay a chunk of change for them. They know what they are doing, but it's at a good price.

    I can also attest to Steve's mobile music. I've been to a few weddings that he's done, and he knows what he's doing.

    My thoughts exactly when searching for our DJ. I just got married in June and these guys do our wedding. No jibber, jabber, just music. They have online forms (rough itinerary, "do not play" list, etc) which makes everything run extremely smooth.
    My other reason for picking these guys, was to have a DJ that didn't pause between songs-- songs never end, people never leave the dance floor! These guys have a computerized turn table so the songs overlap.

    Des Moines DJ / Musical Edge / Iowa DJs

    Re: DJ and Photographer for a wedding

    If you're looking for a videographer, my best friend and former ISU roommate does this as a side business. He works full time at a DSM TV station and has 30+ years experience. He's good. Probably not the cheapest you will find but quality. If you want a contact, PM me.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.
