About this pro

I am very committed to providing quality service to all of my clients. I work hard with my clients. We offer DJ, Karaoke, and Photo Booth services. Please browse my photo catalog to see some of the work we have done. I've done events at various venues and homes around the DC metro area. I take pride in the services we offer and you will think so too. My DJ service can provide music for any event that requires a DJ. Weddings, Birthdays, Corporate Events, and many others. I know the importance of having everything on point for your event. I treat each event like it's my own and I truly care about my clients. You will be informed every step of the way about your event. For my Karaoke service, I offer 2 options, I can rent you my equipment. This includes 1 24" monitor, 1 laptop, 1 dual 15" speaker, and 2 wireless microphones. My Karaoke library has over 30,000 songs and is updated daily. I have songbooks that you and your guest can browse to find your song. I will drop off at your event location and set everything up. I will give you instructions on how to use the equipment, which is very easy and I will come to pick everything up at the end of your event. The second option includes everything above and I will DJ your karaoke event and assist you and your guest during the event. I will play filler music in-between the karaoke songs to keep you and your guest entertained. For my photo booth, I only use top-of-the-line equipment. I use the Apple iPad Pro 11, I use a DNP RX1 printer which prints a 4” x 6” photo in 12 seconds. I bring a Canon T6 DSLR as my backup camera.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I prefer to meet face to face with all of my customers. I like to make eye contact to make sure that we are on the same page about how an event is expected to go. it's good to break the ice with a face to face. It makes the event more personal and not feel like work. I take notes during the meet up process and give my pointers as well.
