Artistry in Wedding Photography and DJ Entertainment

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.
With our passion being music, before signing off from this guest appearance, I will leave readers with ten suggested first dance songs to consider:
  1. You are the Best Thing – Ray LaMontagne
  2. Two Love Birds – Robin Thicke
  3. We Have All the Time in the World – Louis Armstrong
  4. Fade Into You – Mazzy Star
  5. Marry Me – Train
  6. Just the Way You Are – Bruno Mars
  7. The Way I Am – Ingrid Michaelson
  8. First Day of My Life – Bright Eyes
  9. I’m Yours – Jason Mraz
  10. Crazy Love – Van Morrison

Il Tulipano Wedding Photos

Brie and Ron were referred to us by a previous couple we worked with… They had their Ceremony at the Saint Ann’s Church in Raritan and following we all headed to their Reception at the “Il Tulipano”, located in Cedar Grove which is another of the many great venues in New Jersey… There is this little spot with a cascade, where to take couple, family and wedding party photos… The cocktail hour was held at a large patio, the “Tulip Terrace”, and the ballroom is just stunning… We take over 1800 pictures in a standard wedding, here you can enjoy a few photos we selected…

NYC – Bethesda Terrace – Engagement Photos

Tas & Anthony had their engagement session in NYC. Tas used to live in Manhattan, her dream was to have her engagement photos somewhere in the City… We started in front of the Plaza Hotel, and walked our way to the Bethesda Terrace in Central Park on a gorgeous summer day… Loved their casual style and how they had so much fun with a very refreshing and contagious attitude… Next, is their wedding, with a special theme: “fairytale”.

Truly, engagement sessions, are a great opportunity to get acquaintance with the photographers that will take care of the Big Day while learning a little bit about “posing” or creating the best “candids”, doing your thing but, acknowledging the camera’s presence… 🙂

Sand Barrens Golf Club Wedding Photos…

Located deep down South Jersey, the Sand Barrens Golf Club, is an amazing venue… Erin and Andrew loved the place and went for it for their wedding, making it a long fun weekend for all their guests… Golf carts, a nice pound with a wooden bridge, were some great spots for their photos to be taken… Loved their first dance song: “I’m in a New York State of Mind” by Billy Joel, since they live in The City, it was “the choice”… Enjoy their photos !!!

Clarks Landing Wedding Photos

In our first time at the Clarks Landing in Point Pleasant, we got to shot Amy and Jesse’s big day. At the JerseyShore, it was a perfect location for a beach themed wedding… The couple worked hard in a lot of details that we captured with our cameras… The wedding party was a pretty big one, 12 bridesmaids and 12 groomsmen plus a flower girl and ring bearer !!! We were told by Gregg Hollmann from Ambient DJs, the service at the Clarks Landing is top notch, he didn’t exaggerate a bit, we were truly impressed by the level of expertise and professionalism… Here we are sharing some pics we selected from the bunch we took…
