Walter was incredible at our wedding in August! We heard him dj first at my MIL's wedding back in Sept 2013 and we were very impressed with his professionalism and ability to keep everyone dancing. Everyone keeps telling me what a great time they had and they loved the music- he accommodated so many off the wall requests (think twangy country two step and some authentic salsa) but kept everyone dancing and it could not have been more perfect! Through an error in the download, the song my father and I selected for our dance (Billy Joel, Lullaby) was an instrumental version- we were surprised but it ended up being a spontaneous moment for us to enjoy as we sang it to each other and made it that much more meaningful! Walter still made a point to come apologize to us- it was even the right song, but we really appreciated that he made a point to address it with us!

Overall Walter kept the flow of the reception going, he kept it fun, and was very professional- he even accommodated our request for videography just 3 weeks before the wedding- we haven't seen the video yet (over 8 hours of footage to cover) but if the experience he provided at our wedding is any indication at the effort and service he puts into his videography, I expect I'll be back to write another great review!

Walter Baker completely made our wedding! He somehow managed to play all requested songs, and yet keep everyone dancing the entire night. We went with him for our DJ, Videography, and photo booth. He was very reasonable with price and everyone said they had an amazing time at our wedding. We are extremely happy with his work and absolutely recommend him to everyone we know.

I met with Mr.Baker upon the recommendation of my planner. I was very glad we did, because he was an excellent DJ. From negotiating the price to the day of, he was professional and respectful. He provided a handy list with categories so we could fill in our song picks for various special moments. He was very receptive to any thoughts on playlists, and general theatrics one expects for DJ's nowadays. He has a photo booth option, that due to how popular it was I highly recommend. He gives you copies of all pics, and videos after! My only gripe was that most guests didn't know all the things they could have done with the booth...leave videos and such, and had no idea that they should have left a copy in the guest book. I think the photo booth needed someone to really be there, and explain all that for at least the first hour or two. He did have someone there, but she was shy I believe. A very visible sign might be better. Through out the reception the music was fun, and exactly our style. A great mix for different generations, and his energy was great. Overall I am satisfied with my choice.

Thank you Ella for your feedback, your wedding was a blast. I understand your concern about the photobooth attendant. We want every guest to have the opportunity to take advantage of the video messaging and the scrapbook, however, they do have the option and many times they choose to keep the photo strips. Congrats on your beautiful wedding day!

We used Baker Entertainment for our photo booth and it was a great hit!! The picture quality was amazing and my guest had the ability to go to Facebook afterward and share there photos. That ended up being a boon to me and my husband as well because not everyone put there photos in our photo album.

We hired Mr. Baker to provide entertainment for our wedding. He provided exactly that. He kept the dance floor hopping and our guests loved it! He did everything we asked, including playing the same song twice for our kids :)

Thanks so much Jaki for the kind words. It's funny you should mention that we repeated songs for the kids. Your hubby came over to my DJ booth and I told him "I'll play whatever you want to hear." He immediately turned to the row of kids behind him and said, "you hear that, kids? He'll play whatever you want to hear." I gulped, but everything went great. Thanks for allowing me to share your day.

Walter did a great job DJ-ing our wedding as well as filming the ceremony. So many of my guests came up to me afterwards to tell me how much fun they had, and they danced all night long. He was able to keep the energy up and my guests had a great time. I have seen the footage from our ceremony and could not be happier. I am very pleased with the sound and the camera angles. Being the bride who walks last in the processional I missed so many things, and having it on film was perfect. Thank you Walter for everything! I was a very happy bride!

Walter Baker was an amazing DJ at our wedding. He played great music and interacted with my guests. I had given him a list of songs we wanted to hear sometime during the evening and he played them all. He was energetic and very professional. We were so happy to work with such wonderful entertainment.

My husband and I just celerated our 5 yeatr anniversary. We used Baker entertainment for our DJ and our videographer. The music at the reception was wonderful. We couldn't have asked for better. Unfortunately, we are STILL waiting on a decent video. I had to fight to receive something. After three years, we finally got something. It was horrible. The footage was NOT in order, it froze a dozen times then skipped. The sound wasn't great. The reception was out of order. Looked like we were sent off in the middle of the reception, then came back.
