We used all 3 services from Doug Rogahn Photo, Video & Dj. Our photos were perfect! Doug captured all our precious moments and the quality was amazing! He was very creative and we got lots of fun, candid shots. Our wedding album is wonderful! The video was AWESOME! The Blu-Ray Video was crystal clear. Best quality video we have seen. It brings the day back to life every time we watch it. The DJ Played everything we wanted, and his timing of music was wonderful! Our guests had a blast on the Dance Floor. Everyone at our Reception said they had a great time.We believe we found the best value in the Twin Cities. We found out we did not have to get the most expensive wedding vendors to get great quality and great personal service. Our day went so smooth thanks to these guys. I have already referred several of my friends. We highly recommend them to everyone!

We were looking for a photographer online and came across Doug's website. One of our major concerns was to get someone with artistic flair. Judging from his website Doug filled the bill. Doug was easy to work with. He worked without being obtrusive. The final photos were everything we had hoped for. If you want a person technically competent and meticulous with an artistic sensibility Doug is your man.

My husband and I were so pleased to have found a photographer who listened to what we wanted but who also used his artistic sense to give us beautiful photos. He was upbeat and enthusiastic from the first introduction to our final meeting. He worked well with our whole family and got some great kid shots. He put in a long, hard day and still, the last shots are as creative and lovely as the first. Our wedding book is really beautiful.
Thank you, Doug!

We hired Doug Rogahn and his photography and photo booth services for our gathering and I was so impressed with this professionalism and service. Doug was a pleasure to work with leading up to our event and his knowledge was top notch and it provided me with a sense of security that he would do a great job. The photo booth was a big hit with the guests and it still is talked about to this day as the guests are enjoying looking at the pictures every day. He provided top of line equipment and the quality was so impressive. Kids packed the photo booth and the adults all wanted a turn also. Thanks again Doug for all your work and I look forward to seeing you again soon sometime as I have provided your information to many of our guests that evening per their request.

We have had the wonderful experience of hiring Doug Rogahn Photography and D.J. Service 3 special times. We have to say, Doug and Nathan take the worries out of the day for you. We know when they are there setting up and getting ready, they know exactly what they are doing. We have always been extremely happy with everything they do. from taking pictures and doing all the music from ceremony to reception, to dance, to taking everything down. Professional..
We Couldn't be more pleased !!!! Thank You

We are very pleased with Doug Rogahn's work. He has a great eye and his extensive experience shows. He was very friendly, prompt, and was willing to go the extra mile. A very generous photographer, Doug edited every photo, both in color and in black and white, and even supplied us with a digital copy of all the finished photos without water-marks. Overall, we found working with Doug to be easy, great, and comfortable.

Looking back at our wedding day, I can honestly say that we are so grateful and fortunate to have found Doug Rogahn Photography, Video & DJ.
It was a pleasure meeting Doug and Nathan, looking at all of their previous work, going over photo and music ideas, prices, any accommodations that we would need that day, etc...they truly were wonderful to work with and so easy going! The pictures we have received from our special day have definitely exceeded our expectations and we were so pleased!
Doug went above and beyond that day working extremely hard, making sure everything was perfect and you can definitely see that in his photos. We were able to see the photos in different sizes and colors. It made it difficult for my husband and me to choose our favorite, because every single one was simply priceless! Nathan was absolutely AMAZING! He followed through on every request we had and our guest were extremely pleased and VERY impressed with his work! The variety of music, the interaction with our guest and keeping the flow going throughout the day and night was wonderful! A million THANK YOU's to you for a job well done! We received so many comments from everyone about how much fun they had at our reception!
I can't say enough good and positive things about Doug Rogahn Photography, Video & DJ! The experience working with them was well worth it and the photos were gorgeous, excellent quality and reasonably priced! We absolutely loved our wedding photos, especially since that's one thing that meant a lot to us on our day, was finding the "perfect" photographer to take our pictures that we will cherish for the rest of our lives and help us remember that special day forever and always!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Nathan, for all of your time, hard work and effort you did for making our day extra special! We were so happy to see so many people dancing and staying longer to hear the music. We've always felt that the music is the another important part of a wedding and you filled the role perfectly!
Thank you Doug, for your talents, professionalism and beautiful photos! You have such an amazing ability to capture the true feelings and emotions of each moment throughout our pictures! We cannot THANK YOU enough! My husband and I highly recommend you!!

We hired Doug Rogahn for our wedding photographer, and his son Nathan for our DJ. We have nothing but great things to say about both of their services. The photos Doug took turned out excellent - better than we ever imagined. We've been getting nothing but compliments from our friends and family. In addition, Nathan was a stellar DJ. He played perfect music throughout the entire night. He showed up early to set up all of his equipment, and the ceremony turned out excellent thanks to his music selections. All the guests were very impressed with the variety of music he played, as well as the lightshow.
We have nothing but great memories of their services, and would HIGHLY recommend both of the Rogahns to all of our friends and families.

My wife and I had Doug and Nathan Photograph, Video and DJ our wedding last month. Everything went really well and they run a great business. We saved a lot of money combining all three services
Doug did a great job at getting pictures from beginning to end and also working the video camera. A week and a half after our wedding we got our pictures back. We got a lot of pictures and they all look really good.
The DJ, Nathan, did a great job playing a variety of music which was fun. The light show was really cool and our guests were impressed.
We recently got our video back. I haven't watched it yet, but my wife has and says its awesome. If she's happy I'm happy.

We recently had Doug Rogahn and his Nephew Nathan do the photography, video and DJ service for our wedding. Combining the three services was a great deal and we ended up paying less than what we would have paid for just one of the services elsewhere. They were very helpful in the planning process, and I could tell even before the wedding that they take a lot of pride in their work. They had plenty of samples to show us of the work they do, which was awesome.
On the day of the wedding they showed up on time and dressed nicely. Doug did pictures starting before the wedding and went all the way through the reception. When our ceremony was over, Nathan was waiting in our reception area with music playing and lights going.
We received our picture cd a week and a half after our wedding, which is insanely fast. We received a lot of very good shots and he provided all of them in full color, black and white, sepia tone, and small files for Facebook.
The video arrived about a month later and it is very professional and transitions very nicely. It is so awesome to have to remember our day.
I would recommend these guys to anyone, they offer great services at an unbeatable price!

Doug did a great job! We met him before the wedding to talk everything over with him. He told us how he got started in the photography world and showed us how he edits all of the pictures. He really knows his stuff and I was very impressed. He always had great communication with me and on the day of the wedding he was actually there before I was! He did a great job capturing our photos, which is hard when my husband and his best man like to joke around all day. He made sure we got all the pictures we wanted and took more amazing pictures of us throughout the night. We had our dog in the wedding and he did a great job of getting him to look at the camera for our pictures with him. The photos turned out great and I am very happy with them.

We had Doug as our wedding photographer and he was absolutely AMAZING! We met with him before the wedding day to set out a game plan of wedding pictures as well as a list of must have pictures so he didn't miss any of them, which was a big relief to not have to worry about on the wedding day! He was on time and a great director of family members on the actual day for pictures, and had a lot of suggested poses (but is also completely open to any of your suggestions). He was there for the full day and we had 1,400 pictures for the day, all in color, black/white, and sepia styles(so actually 4200 pictures). We also chose a picture album pack which gives us 450 pictures in whatever size we want to distribute between 3 albums (1 for us and 1 for each of our parents). We also did a 3 hour engagement picture session (we used these for our Save the dates) and have 700 very nice pictures of us! He is great for taking those "fly on the wall" pictures where you can just be natural as you are, and they turn out great! His pictures also have a sharp clarity we didn't see in the other photographers we interviewed. Total for all of this was $2500, which I would do again for all that we got!

Doug did an amazing job at my wedding. He was very thorough in explaining how he edits his pictures. His work is amazing and I could tell he loves what he does.

Doug was very responsive on any questions/concerns we had. He was very professional and did great work. We were pleased with the turn around time on getting our photos. We LOVED that he was there all evening taking pictures of our whole wedding. We have some great pictures to remember the day.
Nathan was the DJ and he did a great job. His questionnaire before allowed us to tailor our reception the way we wanted. Everyone had a great time with his music selections. Very professional and on top of all details that were needed.
Thanks Doug and Nathan for making our wedding great!

Thank you to Doug Rogahn Photography and Video for preserving precious moments that our family and friends will cherish forever! The photographs and video capture the love that the Bride and Groom have for each other, as well as the Love that is shared with family and friends. When we received the photographs and video I was completely overcome with joy.
Doug's professional and artistic qualities are excellent.
I highly recommend Doug!

I found Doug Rogahn on Craiglist & what a fanastic find he was! My Fiance & I interviewed him at his home He had the total set up, from photos, videography & DJ service. We were blow away by his pictures, & the albums he puts together himself. He had an opening for our wedding day so we booked him right away.
Before the wedding we worked together coordinating what pictures styles I wanted, posed vs. candids (he got them all plus some!) We also used his service for video & DJ. Before hand we sent our list of songs to play & not to play.
Doug was very accomodating on our wedding day, he was with us the whole day & night. We did photo's before the ceremony so we had time to get in all the pictures I was looking to get. He was very patient & gave new ideas for poses. Our reception was on a boat & he stayed on the whole time, taking photos, filming video & helping his son Nathan our DJ. They were both very professional the whole time & didn't complain even when the weather came up & we couldn't dock for an hour & a half!
Doug kept his word & we received our memory card & sign on password to order directly from his website within the time he quoted. Did I mention he touched up every photo, all 1000+ photos? Another great feature available was to send our password onto friends & family to order their own professional photos (which were much better than what you order from some .com site!)
We had a little snafu w/ the video memory card going bad, but Doug did a wonderful job on capturing the essence of the day.
Our wedding album was awesome & love showing it to others.
Nathan did a great job at DJing, taking requests & even accepting songs from guests right off their cell phones when he didn't have the song,
We would recommend Doug & Nathan to anyone for photography, video or DJ needs!

We wanted everyone to dance and have fun all night long. That is exactly what Doug and Nathan ensured would happen. The music was exactly what we wanted and we are still getting compliments about our music. They did everything we asked and also acted as our coordinator throughout the night.

We only used Doug Rogahn as our photographer so I cannot attest to the other 2 services (DJ and Videography) but as a photographer Doug did an excellent job! Doug was very accomodating with any kind of picture I wanted to take and was very accomodating when our schedule was disrupted due a major malfunction at our venue. I've had lots of compliments on our pictures and while I haven't ordered any yet, I'm assuming that will go as smoothly as everything else.

Doug was an excellent photographer and videographer. He had lots of experience and all his pics turned out great. He was professional and the experience gave him the edge on all the other people we interviewed with. It was also very nice to get everything - photo, video, and dj in a one stop shop. Doug and his son were both very helpful and open to any ideas that I had. Doug really helped bring my visions to life and capture what I had spent a over a year planning. Emailing back and forth was very timely and easy to communicate my ideas a little at a time. The photo book was done quickly even after the five revisions that we went through. He was willing to work on moving some people around in some pictures to make them just right. He does his own printing which was also a bonus-- less chance of them getting lost. He color corrected the photos to perfection. I cried when I saw the final book- It is truely something I will treasure forever. The video was great quality and captured my special day just like i was reliving the wedding all over again. The Dj played everything I requested. He found all the music I wanted for cocktail hour, dinner and the dance. If he didn't have it he went out and found it. He kept the dance floor full all night which was something I really wanted. Well worth the money I spent and I would recommend him to anyone of my friends and family.

For the photography stand point, My husband and I were just winging it. HA. Doug just followed us around and let us do out thing and also guided us. There were no awkward moments. For the videogrpahy he had a camera on us for the ceremony, and I am so glad for this, it was a very emotional day for us, and it will always be there for us to watch when we are having hard days. My husband even made vows to my 2 year old son. And the DJ, he just did what I said, some people were starting to leave, and I was like NATHAN quick, do the dollar dance, and bouquet toss ect. and he just did it, and was telling people to get out in the floor. They both stayed until midnight and it was just my husband and I, one of my bridesmaid and her fiance left. The boys wanted some ROCK music, so they asked Nathan if he could plug in their iPhone, and he did. He played what the boys wanted, and it was by far the best down to earth service you will get. I loved it all!!!
