    The staff at Direct Entertainment were absolutely amazing. They made our special day totally perfect.

    Our Photographers were so awesome and FUN!! Super professional, but also had us laughing with all of things they did.

    Our DJ kept our reception super fun and I would say that 60% of our guests were still there and the end of the reception!!! The Photo booth at the reception was a huge hit!!. We had a line to get in it all night.

    I would highly recommend Direct Entertainment for any event that you may be planning. You will not be disappointed!!! THEY ARE AWESOME!!

    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

    My photographer was everything! She was nice, personable, and knowledgeable! She even helped bustle my dress and do the corset. She was also very authoritative which I appreciated because some other folks were in our photo location, but we had a permit.

    Direct Entertainment was amazing to work with! They were very responsive and guided me in choosing songs as well as what the timeline should look line. Their online planning forms were so helpful in planning everything. Our DJ, John, was awesome and kept the party going with all of our music. He was very patient as we had to wait awhile to get things going when we arrived at the reception. I would totally recommend Direct Entertainment and use them again!

    Great service for a great price! The DJ we ended up with was absolutely amazing. We've had so many compliments from our guests. He was flexible about using playlists I created on Spotify and filling in with his own music based on our personal taste. The photographer was fantastic as well. Both communicated with us about our ideas and expectations prior to the wedding date and were easy to work with. I definitely recommend Direct Entertainment!

    My husband and I were fortunate to stumble upon Direct Entertainment for our wedding videography needs! Back in February, I had reached out to to Direct Entertainment for more information on their DJ and Video services and was instantly blown away at how quickly Jim responded back. I kept Direct Entertainment in mind throughout the entire wedding planning process, but continued to research vendors. We wanted to see how our budget would work out for videography and two months prior to our wedding booked Direct Entertainment due to their exceptional prices for video and other great reviews! For video, no price compared to theirs after searching far and wide throughout the greater Sacramento area! We got assigned Wayne Johnson to do our video and he was AMAZING! He showed up early to the venue and filmed both my husband and I prior to the ceremony. Throughout the reception he was always sure to be around to film the important parts - everywhere I looked, there he was! I was also told by friends and family that he got film of them making memories! He was very funny and asked great interview questions! Thank you, Wayne and Direct Entertainment for your awesome customer service! We can't wait to watch our video!

    I loved Direct Entertainment! I did not live in the city I got married in, so I actually did not meet, in person, my videographer or DJ from this company, however, I did have great e-mail and phone conversations with both of them! I was really thrilled with my DJ, his shirt matched our main wedding color, and he wore a fedora, which my new husband and I both really enjoyed! I have gotten so many comments from guests (and guests have also complimented my parents) on the music selection done by the DJ. There was a great variety, and it kept guests on the dance floor all the way until the end of the reception. He did the music for both the ceremony and reception, and we let him take requests.
    Every time I went to request a song it was always the next one played! A large number of younger guests also loved the fact that they could request their own songs to be played. Our videographer was amazing too, she was always trying to get the best angle, and she caught all of it. My new husband and I are so excited we decided to hire a videographer because neither of us really remember much from that night, it went so fast. I would highly recommend Direct Entertainment for any wedding service you are needing, they won't let you down!

    Direct Entertainment is the way to go for your wedding videographer! Keith was my videographer and he was so friendly and helpful with organizing us to get the best angle, cool shots, and even helped communicate with me photographer and DJ to make sure of timing and placement. I would recommend him to anyone. Also Jim, the founder, was very helpful and quick to respond to any of my emails. Cheryl edited my video and did an awesome job getting the exact song we wanted and getting all the most important moments into our Highlight video. The Highlight video is my favorite. I love that Keith got special moments of my husband and I that I don't even remember. Very special.

    Everything about Direct Entertainment's videography is perfect. Jim made sure everything was planned ahead of time, our videographer was so nice and was awesome at his job, and the final products was everything we wanted! If you are looking for amazing quality video at an even better price, I highly recommend them! Honestly I feel that they should be SO much more expensive for what you get in quality!

    We also love that we are able to purchase the full raw video footage, even after our event; and let me tell you their website makes everything SO easy from the initial booking to making payments along the way.

    Book them! You'll be happy you did!

    DJ John was excellent! He played the music we liked and was energetic. He was also on top of everything, which took some weight off of myself. Our guests really enjoyed themselves and cannot stop talking about how much fun they had. I totally recommend them for anyone looking for a DJ.

    Excellent. Highly recommend. Would use again.

    My husband and I used Direct Entertainment for the photographer and photo booth at our Nov. '18 wedding in Miami Beach. We could not have been more pleased! We don't have enough nice things to say! The gentlemen were the best vendors we had...personable, professional, timely, and, most importantly, they really knew what they were doing! I swear the photographer walked me through my entire wedding (I needed it)! They were so pleasant, not just to Brian and I, but to my entire family and the venue. I could not praise them highly enough! I must've emailed 27 times a week throughout the process and was always met with such patience and helpfulness from Jim Firth, the Owner. I highly, highly recommend this company! I would use them for an event should I do another one in the future in an instance.
