We used Doug Rogahn photography, videography, and DJ services for our wedding. We also had our engagement photo session too. Doug does amazing work with his photos, it's phenomenal! He took a TON of photos for our engagement session that we had lots of choices to choose from when making our save the dates. We had lots of compliments from family and friends on how stunning our photos turned out. For our wedding photos, Doug did such an amazing job that words can't explain the expert craft he has. He has such a passion and eye for detail that reviewing the photos made us feel we were re-living our wedding day all over again, just absolutely wonderful! For videography, Doug's wife was with him to film our wedding. She was very nice and made sure she was getting the best shots for the video. The DJ used to be Doug's son, but the role has now passed on to Wayne, his son-in-law. When we met Wayne for the first time, he was very professional and advocated how he puts his clients first. His professionalism and organization definitely showed at the evening portion of our wedding. Prior to our grand march, Wayne stepped out to ensure he had everything right in names, order and song. We also had asked Wayne to not take requests from the audience and he told us that someone could waive $50 in his face, but he won't play a song because he will do what we (the bride and groom) say. He was absolutely perfect! Doug also has a photobooth option through his business, but we ultimately elected to get uplighting. The uplighting was perfect and was super awesome to have them constantly changing colors during the dancing portion of our wedding. This family-run business is great and we are so thankful to have had these wonderful people capture and make our wedding day that more special! If you're looking for a photographer, videographer, and DJ, please look into Doug Rogahn photography. They offer so many services at such an affordable rate, they really go above and beyond expectations to make your day perfect.
Doug is a great choice!Reviewed on 6/26/2014
My husband and I used Doug Rogahn for our engagement pictures, as well as our wedding photographer and videographer. My two sisters also used Doug when they got married (one wedding was nearly 17 years ago now!). Doug was awesome! For our engagement pictures, he went to 3 different locations with us around the Twin Cities, took over 700 pictures and had some very creative shots. He was timely with return of the photos for viewing online. We had a fun time doing them! We did a MN destination wedding about 2 hours away from the Twin Cities, and Doug did our photo and video. He spent more than 10 hours on site for the day. Somehow, he seemed to be everywhere getting that special photo or good video footage. The photos we took before our ceremony with all of the bridal party and families went so smoothly and had a relaxed feel--that was really nice to not feel rushed just prior to the ceremony. I had sent Doug some pictures of photo shots that I wanted us to try and get on the day of the wedding. He had this sheet with him and made it a point for us to get these photos in. We received pictures in a timely fashion after the wedding. Our wedding video was nearly 2 hours of the entire ceremony and other special portions of the day (parts set to music)--it was great! He also put together a very fun 5 minute you-tube video with highlights from the day. It is SO fun to watch and a great thing to show coworkers or other people who couldn't be at the wedding. Doug was extremely timely with communication and was easy to communicate with via e-mail. We also used his son, Nathan, for our ceremony music as well as DJ for the dance. He was professional and on the ball with everything. Super impressed and so glad that we chose both of them for our special day!
GREAT WEDDING SERVICES! OUR DAY WAS PERFECT!Reviewed on 12/11/2011 Kim R
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 overly pleased being referred to Doug. He was awesome to work with and the photos turned out great! We love his work. He worked with about 50 of our family members in our "pre-wedding family photos" without a single complaint. Doug stayed with us past our signed time in order to get all the important photos, which we really appreciated. He's very professional and has fun photo ideas! Thanks!
I love my wedding photos!Reviewed on 11/12/2015 Meredith H
Doug did a great job with our wedding. There were a few prewedding photos I didn't get because of time before but the ones I have are absolutely beautiful! His suggestion of doing some wedding photos in the park was awesome! Those are by far my favorite ones! The price we paid for the amount of time he gave us was well worth the money! Plus the photos are fabulous!!
Wonderful work!!Reviewed on 10/05/2014 Brenda
Doug was great! He went above an beyond what we expected. He was truly there for us!! VERY PLEASED
Great service and awesome photosReviewed on 9/09/2014
When I first saw Doug's work online I loved it and contacted him to do photography for my wedding. Doug was professional and in contact with me the entire time. The photos turned out so well! We'd recommend him to anyone. Great service and photos for your money!
Doug Rogahn Photography, DJ Booth & VideaReviewed on 6/13/2014
Absolutely beautiful. The pictures and video will help us relive one of the most beautiful memories of our live. Doug captured everything, yet he seemed to be invisible. I was amazed.He did the weddings of two of our other children,but he has really honed his talent. I almost wish I had more children to marry off so we could work with him again for a wedding.
Excellent photography and great music!!!Reviewed on 4/27/2014 Michele M
We found Doug on TheKnot.com and met with him to have engagement pictures taken. We really wanted to work with a family business versus a corporate company. Doug was flexible about locations and went above and beyond to scope out the locations ahead of time to get ideas. My husband and I had a great time taking pictures with Doug and after seeing the result of our engagement pictures, we knew immediately we wanted to work with Doug for our wedding. The day of our wedding, Doug showed up early and immediately began taking candid pictures. It was such a great way to start the day and it was a great way to look back on the events of our wedding. Doug and his wife, Joanne took amazing pictures all day; even through the dancing at the reception. I would highly recommend his photography services!! We were working with Doug Rogahn as our photographer for our wedding and we were introduced to his son, Nathan. We decided to use Nathan as our DJ. I submitted all the information two weeks before and he did a great job on our wedding day. He listened to our favorite choices in music, my parents were elated to have some music from the generation playing. The only minor downside was that I had to ask him about when he was going to do the bouquet toss and garter toss (as it was getting late). When I asked him, he agreed to do it at that moment, then asked if we wanted our dollar dance. Unfortunately, it was after 10:00 pm and most of our guests/family had left the reception so it was too late for a dollar dance. I think Nathan forgot. Overall, it was good service and the package price was very affordable.
Great Wedding PhotosReviewed on 2/03/2014
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.
Doug Rogahn PhotographyReviewed on 2/02/2014
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!
Very ImpressedReviewed on 1/24/2014
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.
Our 60th Birthday Surprise.......Reviewed on 1/23/2014 Emily R
My husband and I were given a surprise 60th birthday party by our three kids. In attendance were about 70 of our friends and family. Doug and his assistant was there getting ever moment on film. Doug walked the party capturing photos shots during the whole evening. He took candid shots and also took shots which were set-up by party goers. Doug also had his photo booth set-up. The photo booth was a big hit. There was a great assortment of picture props. It was nice to be able to give our guests a photo strip and have a strip to put into a special book for us. The photo booth was busy the entire time it was open. Doug was very professional and friendly. At the end of the evening we were given a photo album with all the photo booth strips in it. Within a week we received a jump drive with all photos taken that night on it. We were very happy with the quality photos. We were very pleased with performance of Doug Rogahn.
Mike and Nita BertramReviewed on 11/15/2013 nita b
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
Great to work withReviewed on 11/10/2013 Cory M
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.
Great to work with!Reviewed on 10/17/2013 Steffi V
Doug was great to work with. The things I most appreciated about his work were: 1. He was VERY easy going from the start of the process to the wedding day. He tried to fit his schedule around yours. There were a couple things on the wedding day that didn't go as planned and Doug didn't get fazed by it. We also went over the time we hired him for and Doug did not mention it to me during the wedding day and stress me out. We also had him change our product towards the end of the planning process and he was very good in helping us get just the right deal that we wanted. 2. He was just good at his job. I have been in some weddings now where the photographer makes his presence known quite easily. Doug was good at being in the background and not drawing attention to himself. At the same time, he was very good at directing us during pictures. I appreciated working with him and would definitely recommend his business.
Wedding BlissReviewed on 10/06/2013 Nicole K
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!!
Doug Rogahn photography and DJ are EXCELLENTReviewed on 10/06/2013
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 Best Friends WeddingReviewed on 10/01/2013 Angie S
My Best Friend Kayleigh used Doug for her photographer last month. She is really happy with the services they provided, and I was impressed at how fast they got their pictures and video back! I got married 8 weeks before her and we both received pictures from our weddings at the same time. That's amazing. Doug had some cute ideas for how to pose us all and she got some really good group and individual shots. The reception was really fun and I thought the DJ, Nathan, did a really great job. He had lights and a variety of music to get everyone dancing. He played all the songs Kayleigh and Nick had specifically asked for and he made it fun. I haven't seen the video but Kayleigh told me it's really good and nice quality and that he got most of what she was hoping for. I know that they got a really good deal on these guys and if I know anyone else who is getting married I would definitely recommend checking them out.
Wonderful memories of their special day!Reviewed on 10/01/2013
My daughter and son-in-law used Doug and Nathan for their photography, video and DJ service at their wedding in August. They both showed up early dressed professionally. Doug got some great shots of everyone before the wedding and continued to shoot through the ceremony and reception while videotaping at the same time (TALENT!) Nathan was ready for everyone after the ceremony with music playing while everyone ate. When it was dance time he had people dancing and enjoying the light show. The kids especially liked that! I am so glad we have the pictures and video to remember their day for years to come. I know my daughter looked at many places before deciding on Doug and Nathan and I am so glad she found them.
Awesome services for a great priceReviewed on 10/01/2013
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.
Exceptional Value, Great ServiceReviewed on 9/30/2013 Kayleigh M
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!
Great Pictures, Great DayReviewed on 8/24/2013 nicole c
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.
AMAZING photographer!Reviewed on 7/28/2013 Amy J
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!
An amazing guy and photographer!!Reviewed on 7/20/2013 Shauna C
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.
