Please Mr Dj Houston always reserves and has a backup DJ ready to fill in for any of our events. We’re proud to have originated the most rock-solid emergency backup plan in the DJ industry. Each of our DJs takes the responsibility of performing for a wedding extremely seriously, and is both contractually and ethically obligated to do everything possible to avoid emergencies. However, to ensure your event’s complete success, every weekend we pay one of our DJs (one of the performers from our regular roster, not a semi-retired, “B-list” DJ or one from another company) to be the “Emergency DJ” on call. That DJ is prepared with appropriate attire, equipment, and the music and paperwork for each wedding on our schedule. In addition, each of our DJs brings a full set of backup equipment to every event, and the company provides backup transportation in case of car trouble. We believe our system is the most comprehensive emergency backup plan in the entire industry, and it costs us many tens of thousands of dollars each year to operate — a worthwhile investment in our clients’ peace of mind.
We have both! We currently have many reviews (with a perfect five-star average rating) on Wedding Wire, the industry's most prolific wedding planning website.

You will not be asked to “cold call” people to check our references; we will be sure to let them know to expect your call. We want you to feel completely comfortable in researching our services.
All of our events are private and in respect of privacy to our clients on their special day, Please Mr Dj Houston does not permit prospective clients to “drop in” on a private event.

Unlike many other “open air” systems, our focus on professional studio lighting, photo quality, and customer service separates us from our competition.
In general, our footprint is 12′x 12′; however, the set up can scale down to as small as 6′ × 8′ if needed. We have performed at events in smaller spaces, so if you have a concern about a particular space, let us know. It is preferable to operate in spaces with a 10’+ height clearance, to accommodate our studio lighting, but we can fit into a space as low as 8’.

We recommend that you try to position the photo booth in an area where folks can easily access. No matter where you put the photo booth it becomes our top priority to ensure all guests know it’s there and enjoy it all night long! The surface must be level & solid with access to power outlets. We can usually work to adjust the layout for most situations but should have a minimum of a 12’x12′ area – preferably more for optimal setups. Client is responsible for ensuring the location where the booth will be placed has a 110V, 10 amps, 3 prong power outlet. We provide extension cords. To keep it plain and simple, a standard wall outlet is needed within reasonable distance from the booth. The photo booth setup requires an area of at least 12′ deep x 12′ wide x 10′ high at a minimum. To make sure your guests have an enjoyable experience, we suggest more space than that – mainly to allow folks to gather and look at props, socialize, laugh at the fun, and partake in the excitement. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact us and we can provide helpful guidance for the specific location.
Well let’s just say we have had been known to get as many as 10-12 when opened for an “open air” shot, and that’s what makes it more fun. That’s the beauty of our photo booth – it is not limited. We take great pride of having a Photo Booth that quickly adapts to size when a larger group of guests want to huddle up for a photo! The more people in the booth laughing and having a good time will ensure we are the life of the event.
