We chose Direct Entertainment for our DJ and Photography services. They were great from start to finish. It was so simple to book, Jim founder, was super helpful every step of the way. Once the DJ and photographer reached out to me, I was blown away. They were so friendly and patient! Everyone felt comfortable with our photographer, Jim. He was there to make sure we got what we wanted and kept us laughing so everything looked natural. Josh, the DJ was amazing. Everyone was on the dance floor all night. There was literally no one sitting down. He made sure everything went smooth throughout the night, and the entire process. I have gotten so many compliments on the DJ and how he catered to everyone and delivered music for everyone. From ceremony to last song of the night, perfect. Thank you to the team at Direct entertainment for helping to make our day so special! It was a night to remember for everyone there! We would recommend to everyone!

Direct Entertainment was our DJ and they did an awesome job. They made it super easy from the beginning. Called us a couple times to make sure everything was good to go. Talked to us after to make sure everything was good to go before we came in. They made it super easy and stress free.

From Donna, the mother of the bride:
It went really well. I loved working with Direct Entertainment. Their website is amazing. You can enter all the songs that you want, and the genre of songs, and you can set up the timeline. It was so easy to use. And then Chris the DJ came out and he was amazing. So I recommend Direct Entertainment to everybody.

We loved working with our dj! He did a really great job and we couldn’t have asked for more! We had a pretty eclectic playlist we wanted at our wedding and our dj did a wonderful job of being accommodating. Thanks for everything!

I have only ever planned one wedding, my own. I had everything on track and ready to go when 2 months before my date the DJ canceled. Panic set in. I googled Wedding DJ found Direct entertainment. I called and a person answered right away. I spoke with Jim and he understood the situation I was in and was more then willing to help. Their website allows you to set up exactly what you want. Music, lights, video, they have it all. I was assigned a DJ who sat down with my wife and I. He wanted to know what music we wanted him to be the MC. He was there for us. He also assured us that if he was sick or if his equipment broke they would have a backup ready to go. The DJ called the week of to insure everything was on track and ready. The night of everything was great, the lights the music all amazing. 10/10 would recommend

I booked a videographer service for my June 2018 Camp Themed Wedding through Direct Entertainment. Wayne Douglas, a.k.a. “The Video Guy” was hands down the most down to earth and sweet videographer we could have ever wished for. He just came right in (after only speaking on the phone one time), and knocked the video service OUT OF THE PARK! Speaking with him in interviews felt like talking to an old friend. He truly went out of his way to make our day the most special event of our lives. His talent to capture the moment is incredible and I will recommend him a thousand times! 5 star Service!!

Direct Entertainment got us excellent vendors for all our vendor needs. Videographer, Photographer, DJ, and Photo Booth. Everyone was fantastic. We loved all of them and they made our wedding fantastic. We couldn't be happier with the whole wedding. Thank you so much!
January 14th, 2018
Direct entertainment did an amazing job as our DJ. Chris was absolutely amazing, played songs we requested, read the crowd and got everyone on the dance floor. We had so much fun. Song selections were great, always able to get in contact with them which was wonderful! I would recommend these guys to anyone who needs a DJ.
January 6th, 2018
I as a bride recommend Direct Entertainment. They are reasonable in their rates and they've been very responsive to all of my questions and requests. The videographer has been very personable and fun. And we're looking forward to enjoying their photo booth.

Direct Entertainment was the only company that I could find that actually provided a video of the entire day, not just a 10 minute highlight video for over $1000. The owner, Jim, was very responsive to my emails, and our videographer, Janson, was great! He called me a couple weeks before the wedding to touch base and go over the timeline of the day so that he made sure we got everything we wanted. That really put my mind at ease. At the wedding and reception he seemed to be everywhere he needed to be, and he even had time to get well wishes from guests at the wedding to put in our video as well. I can't wait to see the final product!

Direct Entertainment did a fantastic job with our wedding. Great customer service and you can’t beat the prices. Thank y’all so much for helping make our day so special!!

October 20th, 2017
We used Direct Entertainment for our videographer. Will was assigned to our wedding. He did a wonderful job. He was in contact with me two weeks before the wedding and the night before checking in. He went above and beyond my expectations and we could not be happier! We can’t wait to see the finished video!

We are glad we decided to go with direct entertainment. we didnt foresee needing that "backup dj" option, but we are glad we had it... because of hurricane nate, our first DJ had to cancel, so Jim (the owner) provided us with a backup DJ. so everything went off without a hitch. Thanks a bunch Jim!

Great service for a great price! The DJ we ended up with (Wayne) was absolutely amazing. We've had so many compliments from our guests about him in particular. He was flexible about using playlists I created on Spotify and filling in with his own music based on our personal taste. Everyone loved the music and said it represented us perfectly! The photographer we were given (Rich) was fantastic as well. Both communicated with us about our ideas and expectations prior to the wedding date and were easy to work with on the day of. They were beyond our expectations! I definitely recommend Direct Entertainment!
October 8th, 2017
DJ Charles/squeaky did a wonderful job! We couldn't be happier, ceremony and reception music was everything we wanted! Great price for packages and very professional!
September 29th, 2017
I used direct entertainment videography services for my wedding. The videographer Alex was very nice and professional. He was communicating with me before the wedding to make sure he captured all the important moments of the wedding. Jim the owner was always available and quick to answer all my questions. I have not received my video yet, but I cannot wait to see it and also the footage!
September 27th, 2017
We had our wedding this past weekend and used Direct Entertainment, which was recommended by my friend who has used them at her wedding a few years ago.The DJ was excellent. We received many compliments on the music played and the DJ Himself. Our DJ was Aaron. He was professional and energetic. He contacted me about 2 weeks before the wedding to answer any questions we had and to go over everything we needed him to-do. Even previously dealing with Direct Entertainment was so easy. Their website is very easy to use and we were able to pick a list of songs we wanted to be played and he was able to play them all. I highly recommend using this service & recommend Aaron
September 11th, 2017
Chris did a wonderful job taking care of us and or guests, and was very flexible with any day-of changes needed. Jim was fantastic to make sure we were taken care of well.
July 20th, 2017
Everything was superb from the beginning of the night till the end our videographer paula was very sweet and kind friendly and we really appreciate her and Barbara the photographer was amazing and Bob our Dj had us dancing from the time we arrived till the time we left they all did a amazing job
June 3rd, 2017
Thank you for much for DJing last night! We could not have asked for a better experience. The music was a blast and you did a fantastic job MCing everything, even with all the last minute changes. We had a magical night!
Thank you so much for photographing our wonderful day yesterday. I'm sure you were able to capture many beautiful moments. I had such a fantastic and magical evening.
Once again, thank you and I very much look forward to seeing the photos!

Everything went great! Perfect DJ for a perfect night. Could not have been more pleased.
May 20th, 2017
The photographer was very nice and helpful with great ideas, and helped with my dress etc., very pleasant, can't wait to see pictures. The DJ was very nice, kept checking with me on certain events to be done, music was great and to our tastes and always had people up there dancing of all ages.
April 3rd, 2017
I couldn't be more happy with the amazing service I received! Not only was Jim amazing, the videographer Alex and our photographer were both absolutely perfect! Everyone was super fun, professional & truly made our wedding day amazing! We also had Jim set us up with a photo booth, everyone raved about how much fun the photo booth was & pictures were instantly available online and in hand! Jim takes a lot of the weight off planning a wedding by setting up these aspects of the day. I would recommend him and Direct Entertainment to anyone seeking a wedding or any other event!

We wanted to let you know that we are absolutely THRILLED with all of the edits you made. The video is wonderful, it has a flow to it, and highlights all of our favorite moments. We especially appreciate the extra music by our vocalist and how much more brief a lot of the longer parts. We love how different portions were faded in and out so that it was smoother as well. You did a beautiful job capturing the day and we will be sharing with all of loved ones to relive the day with them also!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for perfecting this video for us. With it being just 16 minutes now, we can watch it any time!
If you would let me do so, and I do hope you will, I would love to send you a gift card for one of your favorite restaurants for you to enjoy a meal on us for all of the extra efforts you personally put into this project. I would just need a few of your favorite places to choose from, and an address to mail it to ( I may be able to end one electronically from some places).

Direct entertainment was reasonably priced and the online access was great. The DJ was exactly what I was looking for and played the music I requested and the music my guests requested. He was interactive and professional.
October 17th, 2016
I hired Direct Entertainment as my videographer for my wedding. The planning of what I wanted in the video was very thought out in their required online video scenelist. This was convenient in that I did not have to worry about calling someone and relying on them to take notes on who I wanted in the video and what parts. It was also nice in giving me an insight on what to film so I know what to expect in the final video. Because they have planning forms online, I felt it took away from the in-person communication because they had everything they needed from me online. This might actually be an awesome thing for some brides since you don't have to worry about contacting someone, but I felt I didn't get a chance to really connect with the videographer.
The day of my wedding, the videographer was right out front filming as soon as my limo arrived. During the ceremony and reception, he was in many different locations throughout the night and was always nearby during the important events on the schedule. Overall Direct Entertainment did a great job being in the right spots at the right time and I am very excited to see the finished product as I am sure it will be everything I envisioned!
November 21st, 2015
I want to thank Direct Entertainment for their service and support. They kept in touch with us during the whole process and made things easier in being prepared. From the type of music we wanted played to the video and photo shots we wanted. Even more impressive was when we were falling behind in some aspects of our wedding, the DJ, videographer, and photographer were able to adapt quickly and made the best of it without any instructions. I would definitely recommend Direct Entertainment for anyone's event specially their wedding.
October 13th, 2015
I absolutely loved direct entertainment. I used their videography services for my wedding. The staff was very nice and responded quickly to any questions that I had. The guests at my wedding even commented how professional the videographer was. I cannot wait to see the footgage!
April 18th, 2015
I would definitely recommend DIRECT ENTERTAINMENT DJ's-Photo-Video to anyone who is getting married. Not only are the services affordable, the quality of service was excellent. They made my wedding on 4/18/15 very special.
December 27th, 2014
We had a WONDERFUL experience with Direct Entertainment DJs! A DJ was specifically selected to cater to our needs, and we had the perfect experience with him! He played a wide variety of music to meet the musical taste buds of both our grandparents and college friends, was not in our faces or intrusive, but stayed in the background and worked the atmosphere in a way that had everyone up and dancing! One thing to know when working with the company is that you go through the manager with some of the preliminary information, but then your specific DJ may have more equipment or music than it may seem when filling out one of the initial forms about the requests for the event. Our DJ had all of the specific songs that we wanted played, brought, set up, and took down his equipment, and was one of the friendliest people I'd ever met!
October 18th, 2014
We had Tom at our event. He was very professional. I feel he captured all our moments and we didn't even know he was there. He was great!
October 11th, 2014
Our DJ was great. He was very flexible working with the set up of our outdoor reception. His performance as master of ceremony was flawless and gave us and all of our guest a very memorable night. Using the company's automated website was pretty easy, but other than our DJ had no interaction with the company.
September 27th, 2014
Photographer and dj were phenomenal. Both called me multiple times leading up to the wedding, making sure I had no questions or concerns. The dj performed the music at the ceremony, so he came to the rehearsal at no additional charge. The photographer was absolutely amazing; was able to handle my un cooperation wedding party, and all of the children in the immediate family. The photographer had amazing ideas for different photos to take!
September 20th, 2014
I used Direct Entertainment for my wedding this past weekend and used both their DJ and Photography services and I couldn't be happier. We had DJ Evan Gordon and my guests danced from the minute dinner was over until the reception ended. We had Martin Reardon as our photographer and he was great, very professional and knowledgable. Direct Entertainment was a great company to use for our wedding. They were very easy to work with and flexible and also very affordable. I strongly recommend using them for your next event!!
September 20th, 2014
We used Direct for our DJ three weeks ago. Miguel did an awesome job! They were on time with everything on the timeline that We had decided on before hand. There wasn't as much interaction with the guests and getting them on the dance floor as I had hoped, but I didn't ask for it either. They still did a great job!!
September 6th, 2014
No DJ service compares! Our DJ Evan was absolutely perfect and interactive with guests! He was flexible and made our day PERFECT!!!
August 9th, 2014
Our videographer was absolutely fantastic! He was always near during big moments, but was never "in your face." He worked well with our other vendors and was very personable. I would recommend this service to anyone!
July 12th, 2014
We used Direct Entertainment for our wedding video. Direct Entertainment was great to work with and their videographers went above and beyond to ensure our video captured everything we wanted. We had Perry and his team as our videographers and they were an absolute pleasure to work with. Jim coordinated everything from Day 1 and was a pleasure to work with as well. We received our wedding video within 3 weeks of our wedding and could not be happier with how everything turned out. I would highly recommend Direct Entertainment to everyone. Thanks!
July 12th, 2014
We were on a budget and so I searched online through quite a lot of videographers and honestly, we couldn't be happier with our decision. Gary from Direct Entertainment was very professional and friendly. Jim, the owner, was always available to answer my questions. I decided to upgrade to the blu-rays and they are really nice! I would definitely recommend!
July 5th, 2014
Fantastic all around. Prompt, courteous, and flexible. All at a great price.
July 4th, 2014
We want to thank Brian and his wife the videographer and photographer and DJ Gordan for making our daughter Katie's wedding special. All three were very professional, courteous and well mannered. The photos and video's were absolutely beautiful. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! DJ Gordan kept the dance floor hopping all night. The reception was to end at 11:30 pm, he had to call it quits at 11:30.
June 28th, 2014
Both Dj and video guys were great, very flexible and offered great suggestions. Have not received the videos back yet, but I'm sure they will turn out good.
June 21st, 2014
We chose Direct Entertainment for out wedding. We absolutely loved them! The guy we worked with was very nice and easy to get along with. I was very impressed that he came to the rehearsal to get a feel for what the wedding day would be like. He did a great job at capturing all of the important moments of the night. I would definitely recommend them! :)
June 14th, 2014
Great! Played all requested songs.
May 24th, 2014
Direct Entertainment was easy and flexible to deal with. The prices were great too!
Our DJ, Evan Gordon, was wonderful! He was very nice and professional. He played appropriate music at the appropriate times. He was flexible with a few last minute changes! He got everyone up and moving on the dance floor. We got a handful of compliments on him. He was great! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ!
October 12th, 2013
Both DJ and photographer were great! They were easy to get a hold of before hand and the DJ helped tremendously with figuring out reception order. Photographer was always around at the right moments. And the owner of the company was so helpful throughout the experience!
October 5th, 2013
The DJ was awesome! He was very flexible with the schedule and made sure that everything ran smoothly. He was able to accommodate for last minute changes on the day of the wedding. He kept the party going throughout the entire night! We had a blast and would recommend the company and their DJs to everyone!!
October 5th, 2013
This company was both promt and professional when we contacted them. They continually worked with us and our busy schedule. They were easy to reach throughout our planning process, and remained kind and supportive of our throughout our wedding process. A few days before the wedding the videographer that was to tape our wedding, contacted us to ask us our preferences, review all the information we submitted was correct, and to introduce himself personally. He remained behind the scenes throughout our wedding and reception, capturing all the footage that we wanted, while still remaining out of sight. This was an excellent company to work with and we would recommend them to all our family and friends!
September 28th, 2013
The DJ, Bob, was great! He was in contact with me prior to the wedding about our special songs, was on time and responded well with our guests and requests. The only thing that wasn't perfect, which was just a miscommunication, was that he played the wrong song for the mother/groom dance. No one noticed besides myself and the groom's mother and everything else was perfect!
September 1st, 2013
We used Direct Entertainment for our wedding on 9/1. We could not be any happier. The DJ we are still receiving compliments on. He was respectful to all our guests, us and our requests. The same goes for the Video and Photo guys. Think the Video guy was Gary. Both VERY professional and accommodating to our every request. Would highly recommend all services.
August 3rd, 2013
The videographer was excellent! He contacted us before the event and knew exactly what moments we wanted to capture. He was polite and not intrusive at all. Most of the time I forgot he was there. We haven't seen the final product yet, but I am sure it will be great!
July 12th, 2013
Our videographer Dave did and awesome job for my parents' 40th Wedding Anniversary Vow Renewal! He was very professional and courteous! He did an awesome job and I can't wait to see the finished product!!
June 22nd, 2013
Excellent job!!!!! Highly recommend!!!
June 8th, 2013
Both the DJ and Photographer were excellent, proactive in reaching out in advance of our wedding, dedicated and energetic the day of, and thoughtful during the event. Neither required direction, taking the initiative to make our event the success it was, and creatively seeking opportunities to improve on the plan they'd set in motion prior to the wedding.
July 28th, 2012
Great quality and value. I had an issue with my video after the fact, and they were so quick to respond and fix my problem. I had new copies of my video within weeks. The videographer on the day was so professional and friendly. I'm so happy I have this wonderful video that captures our most special day!
July 9th, 2011
DJ - Our assigned DJs were Chris and Carrie. When I first returned Chris' call, I was a little worried because he seemed unprepared to ask the questions he needed and a little harried. I contacted the company, and the owner, Jim, responded quickly and assured me that Chris was a good DJ and had high customer reviews. I was very happy with their DJ services - they stayed to my preset schedule for the reception as much as possible, but were also able to bend as needed when events needed switched around or ran over. They also dealt with a blown transformer very well and kept the party going.
Video - Our assigned videographer was Gary. He gave me confidence in his abilities from the beginning during our phone conversations. We had a few guidelines to stay within for the preacher's comfort with video during the church service. He assured me he would meet with the preacher and follow all guidelines. I have two complaints with the video service. First of all, Gary stood directly in front of my husband to video my entrance into the church. I missed that special moment of the first time he saw me in my dress because all I saw was the camera and my husband trying to pear around Gary. Gary also went around and had people "say something to the camera", which I did not want and have had several wedding guests comment/complain about.
Overall, I am happy with my service from Direct Entertainment, their responsiveness to my (multiple) e-mail inquiries and concerns. I was just disappointed with Gary being in front of my husband during the entrance and the guest interviews.
