  • Gene is really easy to work with and makes the photography session a fun and memorable experience. His photos are of the best quality. I rated his value 5 stars because he gives you the high quality images on a flashdrive, free of annoying photographer stamps. He lets you print your own images, so you'll save money. He's well worth the investment (and affordable compared to others). We are very happy with our engagement photos and have many poses we love.

  • Saturday September 29, 2012 was the best day of my life, and a huge part of that goes to Gene Elrod Photography at The Studio I Do, and Dakota Entertainment!! He was FANTASTIC!! I met with him and showed him some pictures I would like to duplicate, and he made it happen. Gene really listened to what we wanted, and help achieve the look we were going for. Gene and his assistant Sam were a great team to work with. They had personality, enthusiasm (to get the bridal party smiling) and Professionalism throughout the entire night. I don't think I could have picked a better crew to have standing by our side, on one of the biggest days of our lives. Thank you Gene Elrod Photography and Dakota Entertainment, you went above and beyond our expectations. Our reception was AMAZING. You really know how to keep the crowd going and keep it stress free. The lighting looked great, and the music choices were perfect!! Thank you for making our day one we will never forget, especially since I am still d... Read more

  • We were very happy with the quality and efficiency of the services provided by Gene and Sam. My husband and I had many comments about how quickly the picture taking went and how they felt the photographers had many good ideas for settings and types of poses. Also had many compliments on the music for the night. Good balance of oldies and contemporary music. I had many older guests that wanted to sit and talk during the dance and they told me that the music was at a good level for everyone to enjoy. I highly recommend Dakota Entertainment to anyone looking for a quality DJ/photographer for a good price!

  • Gene has been in my life since he married my sister when I was 6. He has provided dj and photography to every family wedding since then, which has been alot of weddings!!! I always knew that I would have Gene host my reception because he is so one of a kind and exactly what I needed to make the wedding full circle. He helps the guests really connect with wedding party you see, from the way he helps the wedding party to open up and share to the way he gets people out on the dance floor. Gene's personality is so genuine and funny that he puts people at ease, allowing them to loosen up and enjoy themselves to the fullest. He's flawless in helping your day and evening flow and I don't doubt if he will even be a part of some of your best memories.

  • Gene did an amazing job with our wedding. He is very reasonably priced which was the main reason why we chose him in the first place. On top of that, he was there every step of the way on our special day. He is a very personable man with a great attitude! My whole family loved him! I loved that he brought an assistant with him too. They did an AMAZING job and took lots and LOTS of awesome photos!! I would highly recommend Gene and we will continue to use him as our photographer!

  • Gene was awesome. He took care of the pace of the reception and made the evening totally stress free! Our guests had such a good time and I've already had several people ask for his contact information. I would highly reccomend Gene Elrod to anyone looking for a full service, personable, and energetic DJ/MoC for their event!

  • Gene Elrod did a great job with our wedding photos and DJ! We had a great day taking pictures before the ceremony, during the ceremony, he followed us in the limo, and he was our DJ during the reception. He got to know us personally as a couple, as well as our wedding party, since he was with us all day. He was very flexible and let us try many poses. He was very easy to work with! We had a great day, and we would recommend him to our family and friends! Thanks Gene!

They were fun and entertaining from the beginning of the day to end, and the dance floor was packed the whole night. Gene was very creative and the lighting looked absolutely beautiful. Our special day truly was perfect and it would not have been possible without them! Thank you SO much!
