If you've already been shopping for a DJ, Videographer, and Photobooth, then you probably aren't reading this post at all, because you already know the cost of these indiviual services is above and beyond our package pricing. But why? How can Applause be saving me so much and still providing these great quality services? There are 2 big reasons I'll tell you about:
Firstly we believe in value for your hard earned money. We are a family owned and operated business. We maintain quality by keeping our company within a tight circle of staff who believe in the same things we do. Quality, Hard Work, and Hospitality.
Second, less staff and fewer vendor companies = savings to you. By staffing your event with one team from one company, you don't have to pay additional staffing or company profits. It's a win-win for everyone!
As a rough comparison let's say you booked each of our services with separate vendors. The following are projected costs based on companies offering similar quality and service to us:
Quality DJ - $900
Comprehensive Video Package - $2500
Fish Eye Photobooth - $1200
Uplighting & Monogram - $400
Our price for everything listed above is $3000.00! It's an unbeatable value, so don't hesitate to contact us today before your date is sold out!

Most of the time only 1 camera person will move once or twice during the ceremony so as to be respectful and not create a distraction. Lapel mics and a professional audio recorder will be used to capture all audio from the ceremony. The footage will be edited together with a lead-in montage of all the Pre-Ceremomy footage. The length of your ceremony will determine the length of this portion of video.

The footage will be edited together with a lead-in montage of all the Pre-Recetption footage. This is usually 45 minutes to One Hour in length.
3) HIGHLIGHTS - The video you are most used to seeing on Facebook or as samples of a videographer's work is what we call Highlights. It is a condensed version of the day, has a mix of background music and audio, and tells the story of the entire day in a 5 to 7 minute timeframe.
4) ONE-MINUTE SNEAK PEAK - A series of very short clips set to background music and perfect for sharing on Instagram.
VIDEOGRAPHY Extra Info: There is no set time limit, however we will determine an appropriate start of the day time after you have an outline set for your day We will capture the pre-ceremony footage, detail shots such as rings, flowers, and other special decor, portions of your posed portraits, pre-reception footage, reception detail shots, the Grand Entry, Toasts with Audio (full length), Cake Cutting, Full-length specialty dances, and various clips throughout the open dance floor portion of the evening.
FISH EYE PHOTOBOOTH - Our photobooth is open style, where your venue becomes the backdrop. Guests will choose from fun props and pose alone or in groups. We will print a copy for each guest in the photo on the spot! These will be 4x6 prints with a strip at the bottom containing our company name on one side, and your name(s) and date in the middle. You will be given a digital copy (shared online) of every photo taken and you have permission to reprint any of them.
UPLIGHTING AND MONOGRAM - Uplights are the colored lights placed around the perimeter of the room, or on columns, etc. Our packages include 10 uplights and they can be set to any color your choose. They are wireless so they go anywhere you want and they stay lit for 12 hours. Monogram lighting is actually a small projector we can set up near the DJ equipment (or some other inconspicious spot) and project the couple's monogram letters, or their names, or any phrase of your choosing onto a nearby wall.
CEREMONY SOUND - If the ceremony is not in the same spot as the reception, we will bring a separate set up specifically for the Ceremony. It will include speakers and wireless microphones. We will provide 30 minutes of pre-ceremony music, cue all your music selections, and provide mics for your officiant and anyone else needing to be heard.
