    The Best!!!

    Stop looking and hire Dempag! Yale is your guy! He is incredibly responsive (expect immediate response), he’s a great to work with, and we got incredible photo/DJ service from him. Yale made sure everything went perfect with planning meetings, so there was no issue on our wedding day; even during a massive ice storm! He brings that party too. All of our guests had a blast at the wedding and actually wanted to hire him for other family events. Highly recommended!

    Dempag made ALL the difference! THANK YOU

    Yale was incredible from the very first point of contact to the delivery of our pictures. He has such an eye and we couldn't be happier. He was so much fun during the wedding with the music, amazing photography and even a photo booth. Our wedding was as great as it was because Dempag was a part of our special day! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

    I would book Dempag over and over again!

    I found Yale using Wedding Wire and the Knot. In all honesty, I booked him without hesitation. I looked through his website and Facebook page, and I was sold. From the start, Yale was great with communicating, even if he couldn't chat, he would respond and say he was busy and would get back to me when he was available. That, for me, goes a long way. After getting our engagement photos back, I could wait to see what he could do at our beautiful venue. I. AM. FLOORED. I honestly cannot pick out a favorite photo - they're all THAT AMAZING! On top of making our wedding day go smoothly in the photo aspect, he helped to keep me calm and collected knowing he was keeping everything on track. We also hired him to do our ceremony and reception sound and everything was absolutely amazing. The DJ read the room perfectly and played a great variety of music to keep people on the dance floor all night long. As a plus, the photo booth was a HUGE hit, everyone was raving about how much fun it was. I would book Dempag over and over again if I could! They helped to make our wedding day truly perfect and we can't thank them enough.

    Best Phtotographer and DJ We Could Have Picked!

    Dempag Photography was the best choice we could have made for our photographer and DJ/entertainment services leading up to and on our special day. From our first phone interaction, we got some insight into Yale's fun, upbeat personality and unique ideas - we knew we would love working with him months before meeting in person. He was extremely accommodating being out of state (we live in Colorado) and was even able to sync up his vacation schedule with a time to do our engagement shoot leading to ANOTHER international photography award for Yale! He always made himself available to answer any of our questions and was extremely easy to work with throughout the entire process. From the time he arrived to the time he left, Yale and his assistant were instrumental in making the day low stress for everyone and even acted as our "day of" planner, having everything come together seamlessly. We are so grateful we were able to use Dempag and would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a fun, stress free experience, either in or out-of-state!!

    Absolutely a delight to work with

    Yale and his team at Dempag were absolutely amazing to work with. He was very responsive and efficient, coached us on how to take professional photos (something my husband and I don't have experience with), and captured our day wonderfully. We had a very non-traditional wedding, so having a photographer that was able to roll with the punches was definitely a plus.

    Great Photo Experience

    We enjoyed working with Yale & his assistant Nolan on our wedding day! Great communication before & after the event. Prompt, friendly & creative the day of our wedding. We also heard from family/friends how much they liked our photographers. We are so happy with our wedding photography experience.

    Amazing ceremony and reception photographer and DJ!

    Dempag Entertainment was an amazing company that truly made our night the best night. Yale listened to what we needed, helped organize the evening activities, and kept things running smoothly. He went beyond what was expected and we appreciate all that he and his assistant did for us. Our photos turned out amazing and everyone loved him as our DJ. We couldn't thank him enough. We would highly recommend his company for wedding events! If using the photo booth we do recommend having him make an announcement for when they will take it down or having time set aside for the bride and groom to use it. The photo booth was a great for our guest!

    Above and Beyond

    Yale and his team went seriously above and beyond for our wedding. They did such an amazing job taking care of us and making sure our dance floor was full, the kiddos were busy and pictures we being taken all night. I couldn't have asked for anything more from them. Highly recommend and completely appreciate the level of care for our special day.

    Dream come true

    Used Dempag photo and DJ services, loved every shot we posed for them. We didn’t meet in person until the day of our wedding, but everything was on point to the vision we had for our wedding. Although not all songs requested prior to the day were played, they immediately responded to song requests from guests during the reception. A lovely wedding we will truly cherish with the help of Dempag.

    He was awesome!

    Yale was a wonderful photographer, I would recommend him to anyone. He captured our day perfectly, and got a lot of candid moments that I wouldn't have even known to ask for. He went out of his way to get the shot every time, climbing on furniture, running after our horse drawn carriage, and he even talked a stranger into letting us use his motorcycle for some shots! We hadn't met before the wedding, but right away he felt like a friend. He was on time, funny, professional, and knew how to get the best shot from everyone (even the ones who hate getting their picture taken.) I'm so glad we chose him, and I love our wedding pictures. Thank you!

    Overly surprised

    I contact this vendor five days before the actual wedding day, due to a cancelation. He immediately responded and provided me with good news. He came to the venue right on time and made my Bestfriends Day! With our family being our family😜🤣, he came in and was able to complete his task by making everyone feel comfortable and beautiful. He then posted the pictures and made us all cry all over again.
    Thank you over and over again!

    Perfect!! 1000% recommend

    Yale is an incredible person to work with. He really does it all, he was our photographer, DJ and also set up a Photo Booth(which was a huge hit). His communication is awesome, I NEVER had to wait a long time to hear back from him. Our wedding day went perfect and a lot of the reason why is because of Yale. He made sure that we were on schedule and gathered people where they needed to be! His assistants were amazing too! Yale is the person that you need to hire for your wedding! Also his prices are super reasonable. Thanks Yale for all your great effort into making our day the best it could be!!!

    Yale was great! He helped us feel relaxed and comfortable with all the shots we had to take. He was very friendly and professional. He got awesome pictures without being pushy and obstructive. Overall, I would say you are making a great choice if you pick Yale and Dempag Photography to capture your special day.

    Phenomenal!

    If you have stumbled across Dempag on your search for a wedding photographer/DJ, congratulations!!! No seriously, you just won the wedding photographer and DJ lottery. Hire him. He was nothing short of amazing for our engagement photos and wedding. Yale is creative, energetic, amazingly talented, and a ton of fun!!!! His photos are works of art and his DJ skills make for the best party ever! On top of all of this, he is super responsive to emails/texts (typically within minutes) and his prices are insanely reasonable. You can tell that Yale loves what he does as it shows-everyone at our wedding ranted and raved about everything he did. We will never be able to thank him enough for the incredible memories he created for us. This is your guy-you’re welcome.

    Wonderful!

    Yale was so great to work with! It was very cold on our wedding day (15 degrees is generous) and we received a lot of snow the night before but I was still hopeful for outdoor pictures and Yale made it happen. We hiked through 3 feet of snow to get some great shots, he even sat down in the snow at one point for a different angle and he was in jeans! Such a sport! It was so nice that we didn't have to think about things on our day, he handled photos, DJ and photo booth and let us enjoy our day. Highly recommend!

    Excellent! Highly Recommended!

    We hired Yale to be our wedding photographer and he was excellent! He always replied extremely fast to any questions or concerns we had while we were planning for our day and he provided a convenient checklist for us to go through to ensure we got every photo we thought we wanted (plus extras that we didn't even realize we wanted at the time). Yale showed up early and well prepared at our venue on the day of the wedding and had ideas all set for fun and unique bride-and-groom photos, he saved time for some family and wedding party photos, and was enthusiastic about shooting the actual ceremony. During the ceremony he moved around and shot different views (that all turned out lovely!) without distracting or taking away from the ceremony itself. He was peppy and fun and convinced even our most camera-shy family members to relax and show their emotions during our family and large group photos at the end of the night. We couldn't have been more happy with our choice in Yale and Dempag Photography! Highly recommended!!

    One-Stop-Shop

    We booked Dempag Photography & Entertainment as our photographer for our engagement and wedding photos, as well as our DJ and photobooth!! It was awesome to only have to talk to one person about these items instead of 2 or 3 different people. He also was able to provide music for my ceremony as it was at the same location as the reception. Yale was great from the photos he captured, to the music he played at the reception. Yale is a great communicator, and usually responds to you within at least an hour or two. Very reasonable priced! I would highly recommend!
