at weddings and other events throughout Arizona. We're humbled to have been voted
both 2017's "Payson's Best Photographers" and "Payson's Best

our extensive music library, which includes:

Top-of-the-line DJ equipment. Our 2,000 watt amplifier and Eurolive,
German-made Behringer speakers with 15" woofers provide the best in

standard fee is for a five-hour block of entertainment, but the
block can be extended at your request. Our fee also includes all
phone, email and personal consultation; travel time and expense to
and from your wedding; set-up and breakdown; and playlist
preparation time. We start pre-ceremony music 1/2 hour before your
scheduled ceremony time.
Photography will begin one-and-one-half hours before your ceremony
begins and will continue throughout your reception. Within one week, you
will be emailed a link to your wedding pictures, which you may
download and share with family and friends. You become the owners of
your photographs and assume all rights and privileges of such
ownership. We don't watermark your photos and we don't attempt to sell you or your guests anything additional.
We photograph with only Canon's top-of-the-line camera bodies and
lenses, which give you pictures filled with rich, vibrant colors. (If you click on
the "Event Photos" tab at the top or bottom of this page, you
will see photos
from recent weddings for which we have
either provided entertainment, photography or both. All of the
pictures on our web site have been taken by us.)
If you need help
finding the right venue, traveling minister or officiate, caterer, florist, seamstress,
lodging, salon, wedding cake, etc., we
will be happy to provide you with a list of the top vendors in
the Payson/Rim Country area. We treat each and every wedding with
the same love and effort as we would if it were our own daughter
or son getting married.

"We want to thank you
for doing such a fantastic job at Mike & Keri's wedding
reception. You kept the evening flowing at the perfect pace and the
music selection was superb. We were pleased that the volume was not
too loud so that our guests from could visit with one another but
still enjoy the music. Everyone from ages 6 to 80 was able to dance
to the numerous selections from your vast music library. A special
thanks for the beautiful pictures you posted the next day." Lee and
