DJ Amlan of DJ Raj Entertainment | New York & New Jersey Event Photography

“Why people used to go to clubs was to have a great time and to forget their troubles and worries and stresses of the week and enjoy themselves and I think that the music was a huge, important part of that” ~Paul Oakenfold

Networking with other professionals plays an important and essential part of my life, professionally and personally. I enjoy it so much more as a photographer because it brings me in contact with such amazingly creative and talented individuals. DJ Amlan (and the entire crew at DJ Raj Entertainment) is a perfect example of this.

I met DJ Amlan a couple of years ago working the same event I was covering. I could tell right away he knew what it takes to get a crowd going. But what sets DJ Amlan and his crew apart in my opinion is their attention to creating the atmosphere with a combination of sound, lighting and an even a little danger (confetti explosions and even fireworks). It’s easy to rock the reception shots when they’ve been hired. That’s saying a lot.

Wedding Tip: When hiring your DJ, ask what kind of lighting they use. Whatever you do, make sure they do not use the laser pin lights. While it looks cool in person, it’s not so cool when all you and all your guests look like you have red and green measles in every image of your reception.

Venue: Hyatt Regency Jersey City on the Hudson, Jersey City, NJ
