Dave was awesome to work with, and such a talented DJ. My sister referred me to him, so he gave me and my husband special pricing including 5 hours of DJ-ing, a 3-hr photobooth rental (run by his wonderful wife Lindsay), and uplighting.

The music was spot-on. The dance floor was filled from start to finish, and I even had one guest ask me on the dance floor (over the blasting music) "WHERE DID YOU FIND THIS GUY?? HE'S AWESOME!" So there you have it. I can't even remember what he played, but I do know that both my guests AND me were hard to pull off the dance floor!

The photobooth was also lots of fun! They provide their own props, but said we could also bring our own so we contributed a few props as well. Lindsay was super sweet and professional throughout all of the guests' photobooth shenanigans. :)

Finally, the uplighting. It was perfect! It added just the right amount of warmth to our venue, Colonial Hall at Rockafellas, which had high ceilings and white walls.

So if you're looking for a DJ/Photobooth, definitely look into Modern Artistry! Dave was always super friendly in his emails, and incredibly quick to respond, which is always such a relief during wedding planning!

Thanks again Dave and Lindsay, for a memorable wedding day!

We used ModernArtistry as the DJ for our wedding, and we're so glad we did! Dave Donato took care of all of the logistics leading up to our wedding, and was super responsive throughout the planning process. Any time we had a question, we could always count on hearing from him right away with a very detailed response. This really helped to put us at ease, and we actually booked Dave without ever meeting him, since we were planning our wedding from a distance.

Dave ended up getting laryngitis right before our wedding, so his wife Lindsey stepped in to be our DJ. Luckily for us, this couple is fantastic and took it all in stride - after a phone call with Lindsey, we felt completely confident with her taking the reins as our DJ, and she did an amazing job. Lindsey kept everything running smoothly and our reception went exactly as planned...it could not have been more perfect. Literally every single guest was on the dance floor, and people are still telling us what a great party it was!

Dave was our photographer, Lindsey was our DJ and they are both fantastic! Lindsey kept the party going all night and Dave captured every moment of it. I know many people who have used Dave and/or Lindsey and I would recommend the husband/wife team to every bride-to-be!

Working with Dave Donato was one of the smartest moves we made during the planning process of our engagement. Dave is not only the most talented and artistic photographer we spoke to, but he is the kind of person you could spend hours talking to and have no idea where the time went. Incredibly down to earth, supportive and someone I will always be grateful to have met.

Regarding his art, people are STILL raving about our engagement pictures a year after they were taken. On the wedding day, Dave was not only our skilled man behind the camera, but was the person who kept us on time and because of him, the day ran incredibly smooth. Keeping my family focused is a very difficult job but Dave made the undertaking look effortless.

I look at the pictures friends and family took throughout the day and Dave is in every shot. He worked so incredibly hard and it was so evident with the final product. Interestingly, we never noticed him during the ceremony or reception. He managed to be everywhere and no where all at the same time. Meaning, our shots are organic and true to the moment. Something I found most photographers do not have the ability to achieve. He puts his heart and soul into his work and it shows. There are no words to express my happiness and gratitude toward Dave. My advice: if you contact Dave and he is available to photograph your wedding, secure the date and you will not be sorry. He is truly that wonderful.

Dave Donato was the best DJ ever! He met with us beforehand, and zeroed in on exactly the kind of music that would be perfect for our guests. We are a somewhat older couple, but Dave had everyone up on the dance floor all night. At one point, I looked out across the room to see who I could coax up onto the dance floor, but no one was seated. Everyone was on the dance floor! Months later our guests keep talking about what a great time they had. "The best wedding I've ever been to," is what we keep hearing. Dave made our wedding a memorable, fun night not only for us, but for our guests as well. He was also a pleasure to work with -- professional in every way.

Dave was the photographer for our wedding. Our pictures, which were done in the remnants of a hurricane, were absolutely amazing!! Dave made pictures of a gray, dreary, rainy day perfect! I would not change our wedding weather into any other type of weather. Dave was able to coordinate our day, he was very on top of things, and he made sure I was on time. He even checked my makeup and teeth for me! I have recommended him multiple times and am in love with my pictures! He had great turn around with the cd of my pictures. We got them within about 2 weeks and we were printing pictures immediately. Thanks for the great work!

We were more than happy with this company. Dave Donato is the owner and was very prompt and considerate in responding to our questions. Although he and his wife could not do our wedding, he referred us to John and Billy who work for him. They were fantastic. John, the DJ, had the dance floor mobbed the entire evening. There were people dancing that I hadn't ever seen on a dance floor. Billy seemed to be everywhere at once taking pictures. I would defentily use them again.

Dave did a great job taking my wedding pictures recently and would recommend him to anyone. He is very responsive and timely and does a great job being flexible. My photos were beautiful and he did a great job. Our only gripe is the event turn around time- we have only recieved about 1/3 of the photos and it has almost been two months- Dave was reasonable but the second photographer he used has been slow.

Dave is hands down the best DJ I have experienced. Not only does he have the experience that we all want but he is great at what he does. Dave tuned in immediately to our personalities and shared our vision of the perfect wedding. The music was perfect and he did an amazing job of making the whole night seamless from introductions to the final song. I have recommeded Dave to several friends and family and they all have been just as happy with the results.
