Click: INSTANT PRICE QUOTE - With Paradox there is no worry about a cheesy DJ stealing your spotlight. We can MC the flow of events and provide a modern-style service with the perfect mix of professionalism and talent. Will your DJ sound, look and feel like every other lame or cheesey wedding DJ you’ve seen?... NOT WITH PARADOX!!

The Paradox approach is to offer an experienced and talented roster of professional, reputable working DJ's with a variety of different styles, tastes and skill sets. Paradox DJs hold positions at the top level wedding venues, radio stations (Live 95.5, Z-100, Jammin' 107.5), sports arenas (Trailblazers / Timbers) and entertainment destinations in Portland, OR and SW Washington. "As turntable-mix DJs, we will actually blend each song together, meaning the music literally never stops once the party kicks off. This removes the uncomfortable silence or “dead-air” between each song, and is one of the most effective ways to keep your cocktail hour fresh and your dance floor packed!!

Justin DJ'ed my 230 person wedding at Castaway in the Pearl District of Portland. I can honestly say, his skills are the best there are. I have been to many weddings and have never been so impressed with a DJ. My husband and I are very into music and had been building a wedding playlist for months (this includes songs to be played at dinner, during cocktail hour and on the dance floor). We sent Justin the long list of songs and he worked them PERFECTLY into the procession of the wedding. It was clear that he took quite some time to listen to each song on our list and thoughtfully find the right spot for it at the wedding. We also gave Justin the flexibility to add in his own taste in music and he NAILED IT. Whether you have very specific ideas of songs you want played at your wedding or want to leave it up to him, he will not disappoint. He was open to any kind of meeting beforehand that worked best for us, that includes skype, talking on the phone, meeting at his office or meeting at a neutral location. He was very flexible.

I was extremely impressed with Justin's skills on the microphone. He knew exactly how much interaction to have with the crowd throughout the night and it was the perfect amount. I have told multiple people that having Justin as our DJ was an integral part to the success of our wedding and there was not one part of the experience we had with him that we would have changed. I also got many compliments on the music choice and overall flow of the night. He will make your wedding feel complete!

Jeff (DJ Lure) was our DJ on our wedding day and I couldn't be happier with his service. My biggest fear/concern for the wedding was that no one would get up and dance and have fun. Our friends and family were mostly the "not-dancing" type and we had a pretty small crowd (60 people).... so having an excellent DJ was very important to me. Jeff was above and beyond excellent. He managed to pick the right songs that fit the crowd/mood/moment at all times and all he had to work with was a bunch of random songs that I "thought were nice". For the last dance, we all somehow ended up in a 30-person group hug/slow dance with my husband and I in the middle... we're weird people I guess. The song was "friends in low places". I don't even remember picking that song. Good choice ;] Then when the best man thought he should have the last word and sent everyone outside for the send-off WITHOUT the candles, Jeff quickly fixed that and even helped light some of them. Jeff will make sure your timeline is followed. My night was absolutely perfect!!

Working with Justin for my NYE wedding was perfect! He was extremely professional, thoughtful, responsive and organized through the whole planning process and the day of! He played all the songs we requested and kept a great mix going through the whole night. Our dance party was going until 1 am! He also made our countdown to 2015 one we will never forget! Justin was so much more than "just" a DJ for our wedding. He was involved in the whole night and helped manage the flow of the evening as well as giving any announcements to our guests. I can't imagine working with anyone else!! Worth every penny and so much more!

Justin was by far the best investment we made in our wedding. Music was very important to us, and Justin met with us several times before the big day to make sure all the details were ironed out. As a result, our guests raved that our wedding was the best wedding they've ever been to! Justin nailed the timing of all our ceremony songs, and he kept guests of all age groups engaged during the reception. Thank you, Justin!

We couldn't be happier with our choice in DJ. Professional, competent, and enthusiastic are words that come to mind. He took great care to carry out our vision, eliciting our preferences along the way while providing helpful input, and adapted to the crowd to keep the fun atmosphere. It was so great to see so many of our friends and family members out on the dance floor. Of all the things we had to worry about on our big day, music wasn't one of them.

DJ Paradox (Justin) is the best DJ EVER! When my now husband and I first started looking for our DJ, our first rule was that we wanted one that wasn't a boring wedding DJ that we had seen at past wedding receptions. Justin is far from that! From the first moment we met with him at his home studio, we knew that we wanted him to DJ our wedding. He mixed and turn-tabled for us, and he was the mix of club DJ and wedding DJ that we were looking for. Justin was very professional, super easy to reach and communicate with, and was very responsive. He was very accommodating for any of our needs and requests/changes to the timeline. He also got in contact with our live musicians (string and piano) early on in wedding planning to ensure everything went smoothly as he was providing the sound amplification for them during our ceremony. We really liked his website set up where we could put in "must-play" and "do not play" songs. He also created an awesome first dance mash-up for us from a list of 10 songs we sent him as we were doing a surprise first dance. Justin did such an AMAZING job on our wedding day. We were absolutely blown away with the the music, our dance party, etc. He was a great MC, very personable, and really kept the party going until the end of the night. Also, we used his uplighting and the pictures of the dance party look awesome. Everyone had a blast, and we received so many compliments on the DJ and the music. We are incredibly happy we went with Justin and would recommend him to anyone.

Justin (DJ Paradox), from Paradox Productions, was amazing to work with and really helped to guide our wedding to be not a boring ceremony and a dull reception. From our first meeting with Justin we decided to work with him. His background in being a club DJ and knowledge of music really helped to make the entire day flow forward from a very wonderful ceremony to a "get up on the dance floor and have a blast" great time!
He was very prompt with communication and was very capable and someone who I would recommend to ANYONE who is looking for a fun professional who knows how to make the wedding DJ not tacky... but be something much more amazing!
We were very happy with him MC-ing everything and also his use of up-lighting to brighten up the room. Thank you Justin, we had an amazing time and we would definitely use your services again!
