To say that Tim is amazing is an understatement.
We knew that our dj would be the center of our wedding, so when we started looking for someone to be part of our day it was important to find someone that we knew we could trust. Walking away from our initial meeting with Tim we knew we had to book him. He told us to go out and meet with other dj’s to compare what they would bring to the table, but we didn’t have to. From that one meeting we knew he would meet every expectation that we had.
One of the things that sold us on Tim was the way he described the ability to read a room and change the music to really optimize getting people out on the dance floor. He didn’t lie. One of the main comments we’ve heard from our guests was that they felt like the music played was just for them. The older guests that we didn’t think would stay past dinner were on the dance floor just as long as the younger guests who didn’t stop dancing until the lights came up at midnight (only because we had to be out of the room).
And with Tim, it wasn’t just playing music. He brought all of his own equipment (speakers, microphones, lights…) to ensure that there were no awkward moments due to a screeching speaker or a burnt out light bulb. He goes beyond professionalism, arriving early, staying late, checking in with us to make sure we’re happy, to really feeling like a friend, someone that we were proud to be sharing our day with.
We will never be able to thank Tim enough for helping us create the best wedding we could have imagined.

Tim was amazing. Simply put. He not only helped tell our family and friends our love story, but helped us throw the best party of our lives. We were absolutely blown away by everything. From the lighting, to the songs, to the coordination, to helping us design a logo for the dance floor. So amazing. Couldn't imagine anything better. Thank you Tim!

Tim is so much more than a DJ! He truly cares about about his couples and took the time to get to know us in order to make our experience and entire wedding so much more personal. He met with us several times over the planning process and was always so accommodating! I can't thank him enough for everything he did to make our day so special! Dancing was our favorite part of the night and the floor was always packed!
I first worked with Tim when I was shooting a wedding, and instantly I new that he was someone I needed to refer to other friends and clients getting married. He stood out amongst so many other DJs and emcees. He's professional, charismatic, humorous, and a great story teller. He engages with guests in a way that enhances a reception rather than seems like he's just talking too much. :) Most recently I attended a wedding as a guest where he was working and I was so excited because I knew my friends were in such good hands. I trust Tim with timelines and keeping receptions moving along smoothly, and especially with making sure people have a blast and the dance floor stays packed. I can't wait to work with him again.
We loved working with Tim! He is super friendly and accommodating. He definitely knew how to keep the party going! It's so nice to work with other vendors that are professional and experienced!! We have nothing but good things to say about him and I would recommend him to anyone!!
As a photographer, I am there from the moment the action starts on a wedding day, and I am often there until the last beat of music plays which means that I have quite a bit of experience working side-by-side with DJs. Some DJs are just okay, while others are simply put "AWSOME." Tim falls into the category of absolutely awesome! As a photographer, it's vital to have a DJ that is on point for the duration of his gig, as many of my shots are orchestrated based on the DJ's schedule and the mood of the guests. In addition, it's important to have a DJ who understands the need for flexibility in the wedding industry. There isn't a single wedding that goes off without some minor alteration or hitch - therefore, having the correct gear and ability to think quickly are both necessary qualities in a DJ. I have to say that Tim is outstanding when it comes to being a fabulous DJ. He is on point, knows how to gauge a crowd, understands the emotions that come along with a wedding, and he knows how to keep guests at a wedding! I often see guests heading out before the cake cutting or the first dance. Tim uses his magic, his mic, and his music to keep the guests on the dance floor and at the wedding for as long as possible. I would recommend Tim to anyone. In fact, I have already done so several times. If you have any questions about Tim, please contact me, and I would be happy to give him a great testimonial!
