Today, a Guest Appearance from our friend Gregg Hollmann who runs Ambient DJ:
Artistry in Wedding Photography and DJ Entertainment
Now more than ever, engaged couples are faced with a wealth of options for both wedding photographers and disc jockeys. For example, a bride in Central New Jersey (New Brunswick) who visits WeddingWire.com and searches for a photographer will be confronted with 28 pages of wedding photographers, and 13 pages of disc jockey listings. There are literally hundreds of wedding photographers and disc jockeys to select from! To provide some context, according to statistics published by the State of New Jersey, there were 46,643 marriages in the state during 2007 (the most recent year available). What makes a great wedding photographer or a great wedding disc jockey? Both of these professionals rely on expensive, high-tech equipment in practicing their crafts. Both are expected to bring backup equipment to your once-in-a-lifetime celebration. Of course, the cameras, tripods, speakers and CD players are only tools of the trade. What counts is how a professional uses these tools of the trade to deliver exceptional results. In the realm of photography, an outstanding wedding photographer will not only capture the important moments of your day, but is able to visualize and then create timeless, artistic photos. Similarly, on the music side, an exceptional disc jockey will draw from the many songs and musical genres on their palette, and present them in a personal and artistic way for the wedding couple and their guests. At a wedding reception, the DJ helps to create the ambience, while the photographer captures it on film!
While found in different sectors of the arts, Al Ojeda Photography and Ambient DJ Service share many similarities. First and foremost, both of our companies are committed to delivering a high-quality and modern service with great emphasis on customer service. Both of our companies tend to work at the finer banquet halls of Central NJ and beyond, for clients who are looking for an alternative to the traditional (and tired) offerings of some providers. And finally, we both share a love of music and international travel!
Ambient DJ Service is proud to recommend Al Ojeda Photography to all of its current and prospective wedding clients! Al and Ida are talented, experienced and passionate professionals who are at the top of their game.
