    Seriously- book this service - you won’t regret it!

    Amazing! Sounds weird at first- but knowing who your dj/ photographer will be right away- but Jim matches you quickly and makes sure everything runs smoothly. Both photographer and dj were super high quality and I feel like I got them for a steal with the service! Both dj Scott and photographer David were amazing and spent a lot of extra time beforehand marking sure the day would go to plan- seriously amazing service!! Thank you so much for your help making our day wonderful!!

    Awesome DJ!

    Would definitely recommend! They were very responsive and was always helpful with any questions I had. Obviously if this is your first time hiring a DJ and would like to know more, you do have to reach out to them. Once you request to speak with the DJ, ours reached out only a day later! Art was awesome to work with and all of our wedding guests loved him. They are super reasonably priced and made it easy to pay for through their website. Would recommend them for anyone's wedding or event!

    Simply the best!


    We just wanted to reach out to you to tell you how thankful we are for the services you provided for our wedding on October 12th. The day was a complete success all thanks to you! The DJ (Josh), photographer (Vlad), and videographer (Matt) were amazing and very professional and did such a great job! We look forward to seeing all the beautiful photos and the video from our special day. Josh was an outstanding DJ, was out on the dance floor interacting with our guests, and kept the party going all night!

    We danced until they kicked us out

    Our Dj played songs for just the little kids before dinner to keep them busy. That's how well he read he could read the room.

    Best Time Ever

    We had the best time ever with our DJ! He was great and very understanding of what we wanted. I’m so glad I found Direct Entertainment!

    Awesome. So Happy!!

    We hired Direct and so happy we did! The DJ was matched to us perfectly and did everything we asked. He went above and beyond and MC'ed the entire wedding so we did not have to worry about anything but having a good time. The Video was over an hour and the quality above what we expected watching on or 65 inch TV. Would have again and again. Thank you to their entire team and the owner Jim is super accommodating.

    Just amazing. THANK you!

    We were married on Saturday and had Direct Entertainment for DJ, Photography and Video. We are at the airport on the way to our honeymoon and I wanted to take a moment to leave a message on how happy we were. All three gentlemen were extremely professional and provided to us our every wish. We went through in detail prior to our wedding most of the important details and they even offered suggestions about sunlight with the pictures and video. The ones we saw were AMAZING! Our DJ was so much fun and kept our older, younger and everyone in between dancing and having a blast. We cannot express how grateful we were to have found you and at the price we did! Cannot wait to see our Video and Pictures back.

    I was so blown away with how great everything turned out at my wedding and I have Direct Entertainment to thank for that! We booked all 4 services (photography, videography, DJ and photo booth) and it was not only affordable but we were also so impressed with each and every one of them! I was particularly impressed with our photographer, Stacey, who went above and beyond to make sure every shot was perfect. I would (and will!) recommend booking with Direct Entertainment to anyone planning a special event! You won’t be disappointed!

    I used Direct Entertainment for my DJ and Videographer and could not have been happier. The founder, Jim, was so easy to talk to and he was never in a rush to get off the phone and answered any and all questions I had for his services. I was a bit timid moving forward with a contract without knowing who i was going to get until about a month prior, however the prices are very reasonable and the services exceeded my expectations. I am very happy I chose Direct Entertainment and would highly recommend.

    Great experience with Direct. Pricing was spot on and our Photographer and DJ were alot of fun and professional at all times. The photos we received look like a $4500 photographer! We saved a ton and got the best we could hope for. A small snag in an intro but that was our fault not updating the DJ.

    Amazing and beyond satisfied

    I wanted to let you know know that our 8/19/18 wedding was amazing and that the photographer, videographer, and DJ were amazing!! The DJ was able to keep everyone on the dance floor all afternoon/evening with the age range of people that were that attending and he/they got to have so much fun just relaxing, talking, listening to the music, and dancing!! The photographer was very in depth about every picture that she took and wanted to make sure that the "background" scenery was perfect as well!! The videographer had so much fun taking the video and interacting with not only the adults in the bridal party that were at the venue getting ready but also with our little girls!! He wanted to make sure and capture what seemed to be every moment that I could possibly think of !!! We were beyond thrilled with the level of excellence and service that you guys have provided for us to make our day perfect and we couldn't ask for more!!

    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, nothing less than 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!

    We used Direct Entertainment to record our wedding ceremony and reception. I can’t express enough how grateful I am for all of the memories captured. I mean the day goes by so fast and everything becomes a blur. It was great getting to watch and relive those awesome moments that our videographer did such a great job of capturing! We can’t wait to one day share these memories with our children! I would absolutely recommend Direct Entertainment, our videographer Alex was amazing!

    Direct Entertainment was fantastic for all our wedding needs! I;ll be honest, I was a little unsure at first because for how affordable they were, I thought is this "too good to be true?" Is this a situation where you get what you pay for? So many companies charge so much for these services individually. Well I can say with absolute certainty that DE went above and beyond my expectations. We were able to get professional DJ, videography, photography, and photo booth services for an affordable price. The more packages you book, the better the deal you get. All of the vendors Jim provided were excellent and everyone had a great time. I cannot thank you enough for everything. It was also a huge stress relief to be able to go to one company for all these vendors so we didn't have to shop around. We have so many fun photos from the photo booth that we get to keep and share with our friends. The photographer, Alina, was fantastic and so much fun. Elliot kept the party moving and dancing all night long, Destiny did great handling the photobooth, and Lionel was a great videographer! Thank you Jim for creating a company that provides professional entertainment at an affordable price!

    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!!
