“When thinking about wedding vendors, there are a few who are top priority for me.. First and foremost is obviously photography 🙂 next on my list is the DJ.. It is hard to pick out a DJ because 1) There are so many DJs and 2) How do you know how good a DJ is if you have never seen them in action?! Lucky for me I’m a wedding photographer and I encounter many different DJs throughout the year. Erica and I have worked with so many great DJs!! But I have to say, there is one in particular who stood out to me!
First let me describe a little bit of what I want.. Dancing, dancing and more dancing.. Like lots of dancing. For those who have seen Erica and I photographing a wedding, we have to dance.. We can’t help it! So at my wedding, I want to dance the entire time. People say I’m crazy when I say this but.. No slow songs! 
Except maybe during dinner.. But even then I want to be dancing in my seat! Some examples of slow songs I want to hear are: Aaliyah- One In A Million, K-Ci & JoJo- All My Life, Ne-Yo- Sexy Love.
I love late 90’s/early 2000’s music 🙂 And I am going to bring that right into the dancing music! I’m talking about some Biggie- Mo Money Mo Problems & Juicy, Montell Jordan- This Is How We Do It.. 

 

Now I need a DJ who can keep me dancing the whole time! Honestly, I had my DJ picked out before I was even engaged 🙂 I have to go with Right on Cue Productions with DJ Erick Santana! Every time we work together at a wedding he amazes me! I know a good DJ when I am attending a wedding as a photographer and I can’t help but belt out the songs during dinner! Love, love, love Erick Santana! He has a knack for mixing/blending {Clearly I am not a DJ and I definitely do not know the correct terms 🙂  } songs. Erick makes sure everyone is up and dancing.. There is never an empty dance floor when Erick is at a wedding.. How could I go with anyone but Right on Cue Productions?!”
