This vendor provided the following services for me: RUINED MY WEDDING RECEPTION! I don't even know where to begin. He was absolutely horrible, trecherous,faulty, !@#*'ed up and unprofessional. The only part he didn't mess up was the music for the dinner portion of the reception, and that was because I provided a CD that I made myself which was labeled, "MUSIC FOR DINNER." He was so impersonal and did not follow up with anything. I would call the office and never receive a returned call. I stopped by his office and he acted uninterested in the details that I was trying to explain to him. He was completely unorganized and unprepared. He ASKED me to send (e-mail) him an outline of the reception, names of the bridal party, etc. This section also had a comments section like, what not to play or what not to say. Right before he announced the bridal party he asked for this list. WHICH WAS E-MAILED TO HIM. cause he didn't have it!! Guess where I found it? In the SENT items with a confirmation reciept. So in return he messed up my bridesmaid's name. He announced my (deceased) Mother and asked her to,"Please stand up." The paper clearly said deceased next to her name. He forgot to announce the person who gave me away. She yelled her own name while she walked out. And as if that wasn't bad enough he announced My husband and I as Mr. and Mrs. (wrong last name)! The paper clearly said the correct name to be announced. In my comment section there were very clear BOLD directions to NOT sing or kereoke, Do not play this certain type of music and no interactive dancing. ALL three DO NOTS were DONE! In the middle of him singing, my MOH pointed to the DO NOT list and he continued with his song while looking right in her face. UNPROFESSIONAL with total disregard to instructions. I wouldn't use him if his services were free. Hopefully vendors read these reviews. If so, Always (NEVER) the Best DJ, Photo and Video SUCKS!!!! My wedding was on JAN 08, 2010 so you know exactly who submitted this review.

Jim and his team, Ofelia and Martin are truly, "Always the Best." To start, their level of professionalism is far above others places I had initially looked into. Jim was very easy to get in touch with, his pricing is very fair, the packages are open for altering to best fit what is wanted or needed.

The day of my wedding, I was beyond wowed with all of them. Martin (photographer) was spectacular and all guests had nothing but the best things to say about him. He and I had not got a chance to go over any pictures I might have wanted specifically but after receiving all the photos, it was very evident that he knew exactly what he was doing!!! My pictures were amazing! All the music provided was spectacular and Jim was very interactive which completely got everyone out of their chairs. I would recommend Always the Best for any event!!

Jim, Martin and Ofelia, at ALWAYS THE BEST in Oxnard Ca did a fantastic job for us. Far exceeding our expectations. We got everything we wanted at one place. Photography, Videography, and DJ services. We just got more then what one would have expected. The price I thought was very reasonable and competitive. The service was exceptional. The kind of service we all want. We could tell that our wedding was important to them. They said what they would do then the amazing thing happened. They did everything they said they would do, and more. They were professional, organized, polite and business like. They showed up early and when things ran too long, they stayed late. Everyone seemed to know there jobs very well. Communication was definitely the name of the game. The experience showed. Jim was a fantastic DJ. He played all the music we had asked and then continued with his own great selections staying within our demographics. He can sing amazingly too. Martin the photographer definitely knows his craft. He really captured all the right moments and all the emotion too. The videographer was right there beside him getting all the important shots. The "BEST" part was weeks later when we got to see our photos and video. As I said earlier. Beyond our expectation. The name suits them well. When I saw the tears of joy in my brides eyes, I knew I had to do something for Jim at Always The Best to show our appreciation for there hard work in capturing the memories of our great day. What else can I say Jim but THANK YOU ;)

I am so pleased with the services I received from Always the Best Photography, Video and DJ! We used all 3 services and could not have been happier with the outcome! Everyone was on time and very easy to work with. Jim did a fantastic job with our music and was a wonderful MC for our special day! We picked up our video a few days ago and have watched it almost a dozen times already! I highly recommend Always the Best for all three: Photography, Video and DJ services!

I honestly could not have been happier with my wedding photos. Jim did a great job throughout the entire day. He showed up early and didn't leave until we got all the photos we wanted. He was very professional, and his prices couldn't be beat! Once we saw the photos online I was amazed! The Hi-def photos were amazing and he provides photos in black and white, sepia, color, ect.
We had a few issues arise at the ceremony make it run late and Jim completely understood and worked with our time frame. We were truly blessed to have found Jim!

Jim (the DJ) and Martin (the photographer) were amazing throughout the entire process. They were very friendly and always trying to work within our budget. During the day of the wedding, they were very punctual and very professional. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Now that we have seen our pictures, I can also say that Martin was amazing in capturing the great memories we had of our wedding. Thank you Jim and Martin.

I hire (and fire) people for a living, and consider myself to be very thorough when evaluating someone's professional performance. Hence, I recommend very few people. Nonetheless, I will continue to hire Always the Best as many times as possible. Jim's experience with special events, paired with his fun personality, truly made our event one to remember. He definitely went above and beyond to ensure everyone was having a good time. To this day, when people talk about our special day, the most discussed topic is the "awesomeness" of our DJ.
