Couldn't have been better!
My husband and I contracted James with Soundwave several months before our wedding. We were always in contact with him regarding songs we would like for our ceremony and reception. James was incredibly flexible with our last minute changes to what songs to play for the processional music and our first dance. Not only was the audio portion flawless, they also provided uplighting that made our ballroom "pop". Do not hesitate to contact Soundwave, they are great!Sent on 12/24/2020

My Fairy tale wedding was captured by the best!
Thank you soooo much for your services! I couldn’t have picked a better duo! Between Joanna & Jim and the rest of the Family affair everything turned out better than I asked for! My video made me want to relive that day all over again! Joanna captured every special moment & we are so appreciative of all the work you guys put into this. When you guys said you were from Philly that’s just a bonus as I am a jersey girl ;). You guys are awesome at what you do! Thank you for having that passion and creating those special memories for us!!!Sent on 10/30/2020

Trailer video was perfect!!!
Joanna was able to capture our wedding 7/14/20 at Ocean Key Resort ! We received the wedding trailer and I must have watched it 100xs and tears every time! She is amazing and captured all the feels from our special day! She was responsive so flexible and easy to work with! If you are looking for a videographer she is the girl to see!!!! Thank you Joanna! 💕Sent on 08/01/2020

Life of the party
Where do we even start?! When our wedding was on the cusp of being postponed due to COVID in April, the biggest light of positivity was Jim at SoundWave. He had the best outlook and attitude about the situation. When we had to postpone until December, he didn’t skip a beat and made sure he personally could DJ our wedding, replacing himself at an annual Christmas event. Joanna came into the planning process and I can safely assume that she was the most efficient and simple videographer booking on the planet. She was so kind and helpful and gave us all of her professional recommendations.
When we all met for the first time in person at our wedding, they instantly wiped any worries I had away. They were so positive, kind, happy, energetic and helpful. DJ and video services aside, we had a FANTASTIC time with them at our wedding! We laughed and and sang and danced all night.
Their equipment was fantastic! Nobody had issues hearing music, speeches or the ceremony. There was not a single time when the dance floor was not occupied and we are so grateful for them!Sent on 12/21/2020

Joanna is the best videographer out there!
We booked Joanna for our wedding and we couldn't have made a better choice for our videographer! From the moment that I spoke with her on the phone during the initial consultation, I told my then fiance that she was perfect. Just based on the phone conversation, I could tell she was going to do such a great job. She was so kind to all of our guests, including everyone, and made sure to catch all of the right moments while keeping everything on track. We haven't received our full video yet but we (and our family/friends) can't wait to see it after only receiving the highlight videos today! I usually feel so uncomfortable taking pictures or videos but she made the entire process fun and enjoyable. We also had a second videographer through Soundwave who arrived at the ceremony, she was amazing as well. If you're having any doubts about hiring Joanna, don't! We purposely cancelled with the wedding planning company we were originally going with because they wanted us to hire their own videographer but we wanted to go with Soundwave and it was the best decision. She truly went above and beyond her job description. She basically helped coordinate the guests beforehand to get the footage at the proper time. Her and our second videographer even offered to drive the groom and I to the reception venue so our guests could get there sooner while we get more footage. You can truly tell she loves what she does. We cannot recommend Joanna, or Soundwave, enough!Sent on 03/27/2020

Jimmy and Joanna are the best!!
My husband and I got married last month in Key West and I can't say enough about Jimmy and Joanna. They were so much fun to work with and true professionals! Jimmy was very flexible accomodating my last minute requests and our people are still talking about our dance party! Joanna was always there catching every great moment and worked very well with our photographer also. I can't wait to see our video and relive the amazing night! I highly recommend working with them!Sent on 06/05/2019

Great DJ, highly recommend!
My husband and I love music and we spent many hours compiling a list of songs that we wanted to play. Jim graciously took our longgggg list and played almost every song we requested. He laid them out so they flowed and tried to get our guests into it. He even complimented our song choices at the end :). Even if you don’t have a picky list like we did he has great taste and I think he would offer great song suggestionsSent on 04/16/2019

Soundwave was just that!!
Jim at Soundwave did a perfect job of working the ceremony music just as my daughter ordered. The wedding reception was great, Jim was a great MC and keep us all on schedule and he play the music you wanted to hear. Once he got you on the dance floor you couldn't leave, just one great song after another! We also got uplights for around the dance floor area and it worked out great with all the flowers and palm trees, just wonderful!Sent on 04/11/2019

I am so happy we chose Soundwave for our Wedding DJ! Communication was great and very easy during our planning process and they helped meet our every need! We were so happy with DJ Sanaris on our wedding day and got multiple compliments on him from everybody in every age range at our wedding. We could not have asked for more and highly recommend SoundWave!Sent on 05/06/2020

Exactly what we wanted! Amazing!
The Soundwave team was amazing. We booked Soundwave due to its awesome reviews and it did not disappoint. We coordinated through James Cooper and DJ Rahm Rodriguez was our DJ. They asked us what we wanted and delivered just that. My husband and I had some very specific requests for our ceremony and reception and DJ Rahm hit every mark. By the end of the night we had heard everything we wanted and songs we had forgotten to request. DJ Rahm just got us, and got what we were going for. Our guests were on the dance floor the whole night, and not just one or two, lots! Soundwave does not disappoint!Sent on 04/02/2019

Made Our Wedding Great
We had Soundwave DJ at our reception on December 1. DJ Rahm was the best DJ we have ever heard. We had a long list of songs that we wanted to be played and he got every one of them. The sound system was great. DJ Rahm kept the music coming, and even had some tunes requested from our country music loving guests. Rahm was very personable and made sure we did not want for anything. We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND both Soundwave and DJ RahmSent on 12/17/2019

My husband and I hired Jimmy from SoundWave as our DJ for both the ceremony and reception for our destination wedding in Key West. We have nothing but good things to say about him as he was able to have people up and dancing for such a short reception (2 hour brunch reception). He was very responsive whenever I contacted him and was such a pleasure to have at our wedding. He knew we were from the Philadelphia area and even played the Philadelphia Eagles fight song which really added to the energy of the day. Thanks again Jimmy for such great service you provided on our wedding day!Sent on 02/21/2019

James Cooper is a DJ Mastermind. In full transparency, we used the whole Family Affair team to do our wedding. Planner, Photographer, DJ, Videographer were all one great package. How did we find them? Through Jim and his wife Joanna. When we initially were seeking vendors on our own, Jim was one of the first people we spoke with. We had spoken with a few other DJ’s before Jim and none really had the vibe and connection that we were looking for. Jim was perfect from the beginning and was by far our most responsive, vendor. He led us through not only the DJ selection process, but guided us towards a path for other vendor selection that ultimately brought me and my partner’s stress level to almost ZERO.Sent on 12/02/2018
As a DJ, he is incredible. My partner and I were nervous to say the least when we were telling a DJ that we wanted the night to start out with inclusive Motown and approachable pop music that eventually turned into millennial gay dance party extravaganza realness.
Did Jim flinch? No.
Did he tell us he loved the idea? Yes.
Did he execute? 100%.
Everyone, and I mean everyone (my partners family aren’t big dancers) got onto the floor at some point, and most of our friends and close family wouldn’t leave.
My partner and I decided to change our first dance song the morning of our ceremony.
Did Jim reply to us day of the wedding immediately? Yes
Was our last minute change an issue? No.
Did he compliment our choice and say it would be perfect? Yes.
Jim at Soundwave was a PERFECT blend of client service, taste, experience, and talent. He is basically the Ritz-Carlton of DJ’s and frankly, I wouldn’t ask anyone else to DJ a wedding in Key West.

Jim was incredible with our custom playlist and ceremony music. And a fun staple of Key West, I've learned from other vendors' feedback.Sent on 10/23/2018
We had a very specific vision that Jim met with ease and enthusiasm.
He talked with us day-of to ensure the timeline was on-track, and was patient and worked without hiccup with things got inevitably delayed.
He was on-time, his set-up and lights blended right in, and he was very sweet. Though a backdrop in the eyes of our guests, his playlist and his announcements were spot on to us with what we idealized and his professionally worked without any hiccups.
Many compliments on his work. A job well done!

Exactly what we wanted!
Joanna was our videographer for our wedding and reception at Hemingway House. We wanted to wait until we watched our video before writing a review. What we wanted was a nice, simple, but high quality video account of our perfect day. We wanted to hear our vows, watch our friends and family talk and laugh, and basically just relive this moment in our lives. That was surprisingly difficult to find. With soundwave, we got exactly what we wanted and for a very reasonable price. On top of that, Jim and Joanna were so easy to work with before, during, and after the wedding and our video was done before the estimated turn around time. We couldn’t be happier!! Thank you so so much!Sent on 12/01/2018

I can't say enough wonderful things about Jim and Soundwave! He was an integral part in making our wedding day absolutely perfect! He was so easy to communicate with, and every question or thought I had before the big day was answered quickly and with professionalism. Not only did he expertly create the vibe and atmosphere we wanted during the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, he was able to create a custom mash-up for me!! Jim mashed up the Imperial March from Star Wars with Bridal March to raucous applause!! It was awesome. He made the day awesome!!Sent on 05/31/2018

Ahhh I cannot say enough about SoundWave and our DJ Sanaris! He was a gem! He met us out to review our event and event music. Sanaris made our wedding so fun for everyone! He played the music I had requested but also played to the other demographics within our group. He even let my nephew behind the booth with him to mix a little. I know he will treasure that moment forever! My chaplain even got down on the dance floor. Sanaris was not only our DJ for that one night we met him out at his other gigs throughout our stay that weekend and our guests were so pumped he was our DJ! I may have hired a DJ but we both walked away with a life long friend! I highly recommend SoundWave for your next event because they will cater to whatever vision you have!Sent on 04/11/2018

Jim and Joanna were absolutely great and complete pros. The setup of microphones for the ceremony was very smooth, and they explained all the details to us before hand. We had a completely custom playlist, but they nailed the timings on everything. They were also super helpful with spur of the moment announcements. Jim even looked up an obscure song on his phone when there was an impromptu karaoke session at the end haha. We couldn't have been happier!Sent on 04/23/2018

Jim at SoundWave is true professional! He stepped in to DJ my friend's wedding last minute when the originally scheduled DJ no-showed, but honestly if I wasn't a bridesmaid I wouldn't have even known that Jim wasn't supposed to be there the entire time. He was able to pick up in minutes the tone of my friend's wedding and the dance floor was full for the whole reception. Jim very clearly has been in this business a long time and he's very good at it!Sent on 06/09/2018

Perfection - look no further - hire Joanna!!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Joanna and her work. She is a total professional and was so responsive and easy to work with from beginning to end. She captured every moment and detail of our special day producing our wedding video that is beyond our wildest dreams. To the quality of the footage and sound, to the way she incorporated the music we selected, to the final edits made we are able to relive our wedding day over and over again. She truly has an art for putting our love story together in our video. We are forever thankful that Joanna was our videographer, you definitely must hire her!!!!!!!!!!!Sent on 09/02/2019

Jim did a fantastic job at our wedding! We used him for our ceremony and reception. When I wasn't sure of what music to choose for the ceremony Jim provided lots of suggestions which made it easy for us! Jim was able to stay within our budget and provide everything we needed!Sent on 04/07/2018
My dad had a special request for Jim to play and he happily accommodated at just the right moment :)

Jim was simply incredible! He was not only a joy on our actual wedding day but also in the planning process. He responded quickly to emails and was extremely accommodating and professional in everything he did. Even when there was LOTS of details with family names and last minute song changes AND even two add on live performances, he made it happen! Even more than that, he made it happen with a smile and always made me and my family feel like we were in the best hands. Which we were! As for the day of, he was a dream. He took into account ALL of our song requests and suggestions for different times during the celebration. On top of that he was an incredible MC. He had great energy and brought lots of joy to the party! He knew exactly how to read the night with songs and our Wedding celebration was all the better for it! We were so lucky to have Jim and we will always remember him for the amazing celebration he gave us on the best day of our lives. P.S. My mom also wanted me to mention how nice it was that he dressed for the occasion, in a nice suit for our formal wedding!Sent on 01/30/2018
