Client Experience

  • SARAH - 7.7.16 | DJ Paradox is incredible! From the first email to the last minute of our wedding both Justin and Jennifer were prompt, professional and accommodating. They made sure that emails were answered within a day and that we had every song and detail that we wanted. Justin was fun and professional and we loved getting to meet him via Skype as we had a destination wedding. He was flexible with our beach ceremony and provided great sound and music that could still be heard over the wind and the waves. Our reception was a blast! Justin took care of every detail, I never once had to worry about what we were doing next, or making sure people were where they needed to be. Justin read our crowd and had the majority of our 85 people dancing at all times. People are STILL raving about the dance party and multiple people have said, "I've never been to a wedding where every single person was on the dance floor at one time." Justin definitely made our night and we can't thank him enough!

  • ADAM - 5.21.16 | We worked with Justin for our wedding. He came HIGHLY recommended from friends and other vendors alike, and we were lucky enough to have him reserved (but had to do so way ahead of time!). He certainly lived up to the billing. He was very responsive over emails and Skype before the wedding, and delivered a very upbeat and positive night for the reception. People came to us multiple times through the night about how awesome he was!! He is a great DJ and very fun party emcee that appropriately balances his interaction with the crowd without being too obtrusive. He was awesome!!! Thanks Justin!!!

  • SARA - 5.7.16 | DJ OG ONE is the best wedding DJ in Portland. He was great to work with and went above and beyond to make our wedding everything we wanted! Our guests are still raving about our wedding DJ.

  • MIRANDA - 4.20.16 | We absolutely LOVED working with Paradox productions, specifically DJ O.G. One! You're reading this review and one thing you need to know about me is that I LOVE to dance, so choosing a top notch DJ was essential for my big day. As a consumer and bride-to-be, there are several reasons why I would choose Paradox all over again. First of all, they are extremely timely and responsive. Many vendors in the wedding industry lag on responses and can hold up your timeline, thus adding to your stress level and making the planning process difficult - NOT Paradox. Jen is always on top of her emails and is extremely accommodating when it comes to planning and coordination. Secondly, the seamless online planning platform was very helpful - it was easy to navigate and very comprehensive. Here you can submit your timeline, special requests, various music lists and make payments. Everything is SO EASY. Finally, I need to give major credit to DJ O.G. One who kept our dance floor crazy fun and was a great at reading the crowd. Prior to the big day, we met with O.G. One and he asked all the right questions about our wants and needs, and more importantly, he actively listened to our responses. He is the official DJ for the Portland Trail Blazers and was absolutely incredible at our reception. We received endless compliments on the music, the energy and the vibe of our reception and that is owed to DJ O.G. One and Paradox.

  • ALEXA - 4.13.16 | DJ Paradox (Justin) was a highlight of our wedding! Working with him from the beginning was easy and enjoyable. From meeting with him the first time to speaking with him at the end of the wedding, he was professional and I knew that his first priority was making sure everyone was having a great time. My husband and I made a recommended song list and Justin played every song at the appropriate time during our wedding. And, he was honest about the songs that would "clear his dance floor" during our last meeting, so we were able to remove those ahead of time. I told him two singers who I love and he made sure to sprinkle in their songs throughout the night - I loved it!! During the wedding, he kept everyone on the dance floor with his song choice and great mixes, he really understands how to read a crowd. He also ensured all the guests knew when we were cutting the cake, having the first dance, bouquet toss, etc. Justin was a great addition to our wedding and it wouldn't have been the same without him. The best part of working with him - he made sure the music throughout the evening was a representation of us. He was incredible!

  • SHANNON - 4.22.16 | We LOVED DJ Paradox. We have been to several weddings over the last few years and our DJ was by far the most fantastic!! We added up-lighting and a monogram and it looked incredible. We are 100% happy with our choice to go with this company. Out of all of our vendors, this is the one we were the most excited about. When the wedding was over our guests raved about our dj. This is a must pick if you want to WOW.

  • KATE - 11.14.15 | DJ Lure was outstanding. He was professional, yet fun and personable. He was great to meet with leading up to the day, and was flexible and timely the day of. Our guests had a fantastic time on the dance floor, which was our goal! Thank you, DJ Lure and Paradox!

  • PVT. REVIEW | Justin was absolutely AMAZING!!!! He was DJ and MC for our wedding and guests keep asking me who the DJ was 6 months later. The reception was everything we ever dreamed - Justin personally mixed our first dance which got everyone on the dance floor. We wanted to have a Latin music mixed into the reception and although Justin admitted that he was not completely familiar with the genre, you would not have been able to tell. Everyone danced the whole entire night and are now self-acclaimed cumbias and bachata pros.

  • LAURA - 10.3.15 | Justin was great. Flat out no BS. Look no where else for a DJ. Our wedding was awesome and he helped make it great. Very professional as well. Responded to e-mails and phone calls promptly. After the ceremony and dinner really took over as party director and helped keep people dancing. We saw family members dancing that we had never seen dance before. It was awesome. He also provided uplights which changed color to the music. Cannot complain on bit about his services. Seriously look no further for than Paradox Productions wedding djs.

  • ELIZABETH - 10.2.15 | Paradox Productions is hands-down the best DJ in the area. I was super impressed with DJ Paradox in our initial meeting. He made the meeting inviting and comfortable, explained the services well, and gave us a demo that had us booking with him on the spot. We met again before the wedding to talk about the timeline and song choices. He made suggestions to add, such as the anniversary dance, that he'd seen work well in other weddings to get everyone out on the dance floor. My husband and I hadn't considered it, but it was such a special moment on the night of our wedding. DJ Paradox is incredibly talented and knows what he's doing. He made sure the dance party at the reception continued until midnight - even breaking out fun hats for the YMCA! I believe Paradox Productions is the best professional DJ in the area and I would highly recommend them to any couples who want to have an epic dance party at their reception.

  • LAURA - 9.19.15 | DJ OG-ONE (David) did an amazing job! He coordinated the plan of events, made all the announcements and basically made everything run smoothly throughout the night. He was really friendly and personable-my parents enjoyed talking with him too. Best of all he played such great music on the dance floor- we had a blast! Friends are still telling me how great the music was and how much fun they had dancing that night.

  • CAROLINE - 9.12.15 | We are so happy with our choice of choosing Paradox Productions for our wedding DJ. After attending my cousins wedding where DJ RPM (Ryan) was DJ'ing I knew that he was who we wanted to host our wedding. He was so professional, friendly and played the perfect music for all ages of people at the event. We met Ryan multiple times at a coffee shop to go over the big day. One of my favorite things is the online client page that you can access at anytime to update your song choices, and it also has songs that are highly recommended/popular choices. We were so pleased with the flow of our ceremony & reception, everything went in the perfect order and Ryan's announcement organization when calling tables to dinner, speeches, cake cutting and dances was so professional. Our wedding guests raved to us about the music and how much fun they had dancing all night. Thank you Ryan & Paradox Productions!!

  • KATY - 8.29.15 | DJ RPM helped make our reception flow in an intriguing, lively, effective way that we could have never done on our own. He had wonderful ideas and suggestions from his years of experience. He was open to meeting with us and conversing over FaceTime as me and my fiancé were not local. He was so flexible, professional and responsive. We also used up-lighting which RPM set up as well- SO pretty and added a nice touch to our venue.  Everyone commented on how fun our wedding was and the dance floor was packed all night long which wouldn't have been possible w/o him. Paradox Productions was great from minute one. I forget the woman we spoke with initially, but she was very pleasant to work with and really made us feel comfortable and excited about using this company. We never felt pressured which was a relief. She was the one who ultimately set us up with RPM based on our taste. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

  • LILLY - 8.22.15 | Endless thanks to DJ O.G.One who kept everyone of our wedding guests on their feet, hands in the air all night long. I think my husband and I sat in our chairs for a total of five minutes just to have a bite to eat before getting back up to dance. He read the crowd perfectly and our smiles grew song after song.

  • SOFIA - 8.22.15 | We are so glad we went with Paradox for our wedding. The DJ makes or breaks the reception, so we didn't take our decision in who to go with lightly, especially since our wedding was multi cultural and we needed someone who could play Persian, Mexican and Top 40 music without it sounding like a mess! After interviewing a few DJS and comparing pricing, we went with Paradox and Ryan was our DJ. We met with Ryan quite a few times throughout the year and he answered ALL of our questions (probably a billion!) He helped us pick songs and figure out the best timeline for our reception. On the day of our wedding, Ryan more than exceeded our already high expectations. We had booked our lighting through him, and had chosen 15 amber lights to put on the walls . Once the party got going, to our surprise he had upgraded our lights to change colors! That was a great surprise! Ryan did a great job not only DJing but also being the MC and keeping everything running smoothly. He also did a great job at reading the crowd and knowing what to play, because the dance floor was packed the entire night. We wish we had gotten a bigger dance floor. He kept the party going so well that we had to ask him to stay longer than we had booked him! We are so glad we went with our instincts and booked with Paradox. I believe that you get what you pay for when it comes to wedding DJs and Paradox and Ryan were worth every penny and then some.

  • NIQ - 8.14.15 | Justin was awesome every step of the way. The in depth planning page on their website is great and helped us on planning out everything we wanted. The couple of phone/Skype chats we had really nailed down every detail - Justin knew all the right questions to ask. The pricing was super fair, especially considering you're getting someone that's going to keep everything moving in the right direction throughout the night with announcements and music choices. I used to DJ, so I had a pretty high bar to meet and Justin easily exceeded it. He hit the perfect balance between playing what we requested ahead of time, handling requests from all our drunk-idiot friends, and filling in the rest of the night with music that met our tastes. Justin is not just there to press play and make a buck - he really is paying attention to what's going on and make sure your night goes right. When it came time for my wife and I to cut the cake, our less-than-stellar catering service was nowhere to be seen. Justin noticed this right away and ran off to the kitchen to get equipment for us to do the deed right after he hit play on the music we wanted. I doubt any of the guests noticed anything, because it looked so natural, but it really meant a lot to me that he was paying that much attention and did something that wasn't his job to make my wife and I look like we knew what we were doing.

  • JERYLIN - 8.9.15  | First of all Paradox Productions has GREAT customer service. If you are a returning customer or a new one they treat you like number one. My wife and i were researching DJ/Entertainment and we were totally out of our element and when i contacted Paradox staff they immediately made us feel comfortable and confident. Our DJ was DJ RPM (Ryan)..By the way if you are reading this thank you brother for everything you rock! DJ RPM was amazing and he made us feel so comfortable and guided us every step of the way. He honestly was more than just a DJ to us, he helped us in many ways to get prepped for the wedding. I was a little concerned on how DJ RPM would be able to handle an "Asian'ish" crowd but he was very professional and knows how to handle a crowd, He gets the energy going in the high time and knows how to relax the crowd in a down time.

  • CHRISTINA - 7.25.15 | My husband and I can't say enough wonderful things about Paradox Productions. Justin was our DJ for our wedding, and we loved him from the first moment we met him. He is warm, friendly, professional, reliable, and is just very gifted socially, as he can read subtle cues from small group interactions to very large groups. This is probably the most important characteristic for a DJ to have. Our wedding was about 300 people, and it was also a Greek-American mix of people, and Justin perfectly blended the music at our reception, and it was a strong dance party until it was time to shut down at 1am. I really appreciated the extra time he took to learn a little bit about the Greek music I gave him to play, and it really worked well. The Greeks were happy that they got to dance to some of their favorite songs and dances. Many of my non-Greek friends later told me that they really liked the way the DJ went back and forth between Greek and American music; they loved that during the Greek segments, they could take a rest from the dance floor and watch a "performance" by our Greek guests. It was just really fun. I also want to add that Justin is very experienced in the wedding industry. Because of this, he gave us lots of tips in the planning process to help us figure out ways to get and keep our guests involved and excited. We used several of his ideas and we think they made a big difference in keeping the energy high at our wedding. You get a great value for your money with Paradox Productions. Thank you so much, Justin, we hope to party with you again soon :)

  • IBBET - 7.17.15 | Our wedding was on 7/17/15 and our DJ was Jeff/DJ Lure. He was absolutely amazing at our event, extremely helpful in the entire planning process, and went above and beyond to meet with us and discuss our needs and questions. He honored each of our requests and was flexible in every aspect. He communicated with us so well throughout our event to keep things running smoothly. We can honestly say there was never a dull moment at our reception and the dance floor was always full. Our friends and family had a great time. We had a great reception and it wouldn't have been possible without the talent and professionalism of DJ Lure!

  • PVT. REVIEW - 7.17.15 | Justin was an AMAZING DJ. First and foremost when we met for the first time he blew us away with how great he is at mixing songs and beats. He showed us how to shorten songs so that not the entire song has to play - just the parts everyone loves to sing and dance to. He did such a great job of keeping the guests entertained. Our wedding guests were up dancing all night. Lighting and sound was exactly what we wanted. The Paradox website was great and easy to use to get our timeline and songs up. Justin played a wide variety of music that kept everyone excited. He even played some Disney tunes which made me very happy! I love that Justin had the idea to do the reverse anniversary dance to build up the floor rather than take people off the floor (I do wish a faster dance song was played after rather than another slow song because the floor was full after the anniversary dance but then people left because they didn't want two slow songs in a row). Justin also had another idea to have everyone be allowed to catch the garter and bouquet for a prize and the floor was FULL! Justin was always available via phone or email for any questions. The only other thing I wish had gone differently was he played the wrong song for our garter toss - but honestly no one noticed and I really didn't care!

  • PVT. REVIEW - 7.11.15 | We had DJ Lure (Jeff) and he did an AMAZING JOB. He was so professional and went out of his way to meet with us the week before the wedding to talk about our plan and the tone of the celebration. Our wedding site was a bit unconventional and Jeff made everything work. We also had a small, unplanned interruption and he handled the mini crisis with total class and had the party moving again seamlessly. But most importantly, he had everyone dancing the WHOLE NIGHT and dancing HARD. He took our requests and blended them with other songs we had not selected, but wish we had, and kept all ages on the dance floor the whole night. I seriously cannot recommend Jeff highly enough. He is a complete and total class act who made our entire celebration really special.

  • JACKIE - 6.27.15 | After are wedding people were not just talking about how much fun the wedding was they were asking "who was your DJ?" . He did such an amazing job from the ceremony to the reception. Are main goal was to have people out on the dance floor the entire night. When he noticed people fading off and not wanting to dance he drew them right back onto the dance floor. He has a gr at personality and voice that people and crowds respond really well too! He was easy to work with and was great at responding back quickly. He even traveled to our wedding venue. We couldn't be happier with who we chose for our wedding!!!!!

  • PVT. REVIEW - 6.27.15 | Paradox Productions were so easy to work with! We went with Ryan (DJ RPM) and he was wonderful! He met with us twice before the wedding to get a better sense of what we wanted. He did an amazing job the day of. He kept things running smoothly and the music was on point. We still get told how awesome the music was. Thank you for making our day the best day ever. It was truly magical!
