I am getting married in Lakewood, Ca and wanted to see if anyone knows of a good DJ. Lakewood is a small city next to Long Beach. I am also looking for a good and affordable photographer. We have a photography budget of $1500 to $2000. Thank you in advance for your help!

@cutelizard: my photographers are over twice your budget, but worth every penny! I started out with the same budget as you, but then fell in love with them and halved my floral budget and cut other things out to make it work. If you are interested, check out the http://www.theyoungrens.com
another great photographer who might be closer to your budget is http://www.photographybychariseblog.com/
my DJs are awesome – jeff and jennifer kantor of http://www.golddustentertainment.com/.
do you need a videographer? a florist? i have amazing, super affordable ones!

My photographer is out of your budget but I can recommend a good DJ. It’s Atmosphere Entertainment and the DJ we went with is the owner – Joe Paxton. He was really good and accomodating and they also handle lights/drapes/etc.
They’re based out of Anaheim but they’re willing to service all of SoCal. They do a ton of different events and they have a section in their office with the drapes/uplights/etc. so you can get a good idea for what colors to pick and what the ambiance will be like.
If you can up your budget, check out Brett Butterstein Photography (http://www.brettbutterstein.com/). He has a great eye for color, lighting and angles and we seriously had a ton of compliments on our photos. I know everyone says that but his photos are like straight out of a high-end magazine. He’s based out of San Diego but he loves to travel. A lot of the weddings he does are not local.

I used DJ Brothers Entertainment. They were my DJ and photographer. They did a great job and we got an amazing deal with them. They’re out of Fountain Valley. http://www.djbros.com. Our photographer was Art and our DJ was Eugene. They did a great job and I would recommend. We also got an AMAZING Italian Wedding Album included in our package; that alone would have cost $2000 with other photographers. Definitely check them out! If you have any questions, feel free to ask! 🙂
