My Top Tips for Booking a DJ for Your Wedding
As a professional DJ with over 20 years experience I thought it might be helpful if I offered a few tips to help you get the right DJ for your wedding.
This is the fourth in my series of bite sized tips.
What kind of lighting effects does the DJ have?
Why is this important?
Well there are broadly two main types of lighting effect:
First there are lights that provide sharp beams of colour these can be a solid beam of light, a gobo (coloured shapes or lettering) and be static, a scanner (a rotating mirror which shines the light in different directions) or a moving head.
Secondly there are "wash" lights these provide a wash of colour and illuminate the dancefloor or room and these can be either static or a moving head.
If you want high quality photographs of your first dance etc you might find that a DJ who only has sharp beam lighting effects which cant be turned off without descending the room into darkness, could end up ruining your photo's as they create a coloured dot effect.
Wash lights are much less likely to have any detrimental effect on your photo's.
See below the 1st photograph typically shows the dots caused by sharp beam lights and the 2nd photograph has been taken under wash lights.
