Alex and Josh deserve a ten star rating! Can't say enough about how easy to work with they are to their professionalism to the beautiful finished product. My daughter's wedding was a bit of a Bohemian affair and at the last minute we decided to change the beach venue. Alex and Josh didn't bat an eye. They just said tell us where and when and we will be there. Oh, and they were dealing with four children - two of whom can be a bit of a challenge when it comes to gathering for photos! You won't be disappointed!!! Highly recommend. More...

Where do we start?! We met Josh and Alex at a tasting event in the OC. They had a booth setup and we really liked their portraits that were on display. Then we started to talk to them and their vibe and attentiveness was soo refreshing. We instantly were like let's book with them without hesitation. This was one of the best decisions we made. Josh and Alex exceeded our expectations and were so proactive from the start. From our engagement photos to our video trailer to our wedding pictures we were soo overjoyed with everything. They are both so talented and really are perfectionist! They are creative but also enjoy creating your vision. They have became good friends of ours and we plan on using them for more events and family pictures. Josh and Alex THANK YOU both for your patience, execution, and all around AWESOME work! You made every moment special.

Okay so let me say that I ended up hiring Alex and Josh for my little sister's beach wedding and they did an amazing job. We wish we would have known about them from the start since we would have just hired them for every service but what they did do was perfect . My sister did not think she would need a day of coordinator but I insisted since I had one for my wedding and it made a wold of difference. This was my gift to her. She was also not going to have her wedding recorded and since I noticed that they offered video services I just surprised her with this too. Well the wedding day went by smoothly and everyone including my sister was impressed with how Alex took care of all. When my sister so the video trailer she started crying and this made me so happy. I just had to share this and make sure to let these wonderful due know that we appreciated their hard work. Thank you Alex and Josh! More...

Amazing!!!!! That's the first word that comes to mind when talking about Josh and Alex. Photography is a work of art and fabulous vision Alex is great at expressing ideas and getting every part of our ceremony and reception. Josh and Alex make sure you have photos of each milestone and the music variety is great. Our guests were either dancing their feet off, in the photo booth or taking pictures with the bride and groom. I have already recommended them to family and friends that were at the wedding and will use them in the future for other events. Thank you Josh and Alex you made my sons wedding a huge success.

5 stars might not be enough here. Cateraoke is a 10 star business that took an amazing event and made it completely out of this world. Alex and Josh are experts in their field and two of the most amazing people we've been fortunate enough to work with. We received personalized attention and prompt responses, coupled with information and ideas that we never considered. Having one group handle the photography, the DJ, the photobooth, and the flowers took any real stress out of our day. The photobooth was a huge hit at our event and our guests really enjoyed the setup/look of the booth. The DJ played some awesome music and was really great at gauging the audience to keep things moving. Alex & Josh worked great with our venue coordinator to keep everything on track. And the photos...These two have an amazing eye and captured our day so well.. After all was said and done, my bride and I both agreed that Cateraoke not only exceeded all of our expectations, but they made the day better. Thank you both so much. Ryan & Amanda. More...

Alex and Josh are incredible! About a month away from the wedding, my husband and I decided we needed to change a few things up a bit and hire a few more vendors to make the day right. We went on a search for photo booth and DJ, and came across Alex and Josh.

After talking to them and realizing how awesome they are, and HAD to book them for day of Coordination and karaoke, too. Managing planning a destination wedding in Newport Beach was not as easy a task as I thought it could be, but as soon as Alex jumped on board it was flawless. A weight was lifted off my shoulders!!

We have had both family members and friends share with us how incredibly organized they felt everything was and how beautifully Alex set up tables, decor and also with compliments to Josh for karaoke and dance music!

I highly recommend Alex and Josh - on such short notice they delivered well beyond our expectations, will make sure you are completely stress-free �

I only have the best things to say about Josh and Alex! Like many of you reading this I have never been married. So that meant I really didn't know what I was doing (especially since I didn't have a wedding planner). But Josh and Alex helped fill in the gaps and the things I didn't think of to help my day go off without a hitch. I can't imagine what it would have been like without them! There is no shortage in talents between those two. From refreshing my makeup in between pictures, to brining their own props, to d-j-ing, to caraoking, these men are seriously talented. Not only are they absolute professionals in ability and creativity, but they are amazing people! Their temperament and grounded nature really helps you stay calm and focused. They really make you feel like you don't have a thing to worry about and they've got everything under control, so that you can truly enjoy your day. To say that I would highly recommend them is an understatement. If there was a rating over 5 stars I would gladly give it to them! If for some reason you're on the fence on whether or not to chose Cateraoke as your vendor, I hope that this review helps push you over. If you want to a fun-filled, worry-free, amazing event-then you MUST chose Alex & Josh/Cateraoke!!! You won't be disappointed!! Thank you Alex & Josh from the bottom of our hearts, Thank You!

This is the second time we have used Paul and Josh (Cateraoke) for a very important event. The first time was just over a year ago for a big fundraiser we were having for our production company. After the success of that event and experiencing how great Paul and Josh handled the night; knowing when to have the volume up or down, when to cut it off for announcements and how friendly they were with every person that walked through the door, my fiancé and I didn't think twice about who we wanted to DJ our wedding this October.

One thing I really love about Paul and Josh is that they’re very open as to HOW an evening is to be DJ’d. At our fundraiser, I gave them a list of some artists I thought would work for the night, but really left it open to them to compile the songs. They did an excellent job at staying true to the mood we wanted, but bringing in a nice eclectic and varied list of songs and artists. For the wedding, on the other hand, my fiancé and I wanted to create our own playlists with the songs that specifically meant something to us. For us, it was more about being very in-tune and sensitive to the mood of the day and evening, and knowing how to adjust accordingly the volume and choice of when songs were to be played.

To no surprise of mine or my now wife, the night went by perfectly! The music was never intrusive; it just accentuated the event to the right degree. A HUGE added bonus for us, which we really weren’t expecting, was that Josh was willing to take pictures for us if we were cool with it. We were definitely cool with it and better yet, the pictures turned out phenomenal!

We, once again, highly recommend Cateraoke!

I wholeheartedly recommend Alex and Josh for any event! I hired them initially as just photographers and day-of-coordinator for our wedding this past March. Their portfolio was great and their rate was extremely reasonable. They were also very personable and easy to talk to and work with, and responding promptly with emails. During our engagement photo shoot they were such pros, putting us at ease (my husband and I are not big photo people!) and they were such troopers! It was 100+ degrees in DTLA, and they were great. They managed to make us look amazing despite the sweltering heat.

Then, 2 months before our wedding my DJ had to drop out. He was also our photobooth guy as well. Alex and Josh were able to sweep in and helped us out! They took over DJ, karaoke, photobooth, AND styling, all at reasonable rates! I wish I had booked them for it all since the beginning!

I am Chinese, and ended up including the Door Game and tea ceremony to the day. All this was at my mom's house in the SGV whereas the venue is the Nature History Museum. Alex and Josh actually came out to photograph it, despite me only booking them for my evening wedding, and I am extremely thankful they did. Put my mind at ease and it allowed my friends and family to enjoy their time.

Alex and Josh also GOT my vision for my wedding. I DIYed a couple of things, and they understood my vision and my budget and they managed to make my whole wedding look and feel like I spent way more on it then I did! They had a wonderful team that had my wedding running smoothly, and they themselves busted their butts as the coordinators and photographers for my 100-person wedding. A few hiccups came up but they were quick to solve them and kept the groom and I relatively stress free for the whole wedding.

My family, usually a critical bunch, had nothing but great things to say about the wedding. They loved the photobooth, which was so easy to use! Even the older, non-english speaking members of my family figured out how to use it. I still get compliments of the wedding now months later.

Alex and Josh are both wonderful, and I would use them again for future events!

I specifically wanted a really great quality photo, as well as an awesome self serve - touch screen machine to do it.

I can not thank Alex and Josh enough. I hired them for wedding coordinator, photographer, dj, and photobooth on June 6th. I was so lucky to find them through yelp . Alex is one amazing woman, she is very on top of her game. I knew from the first conversation we had on the phone that she and I are compatible, a little more than my husband I'm sure. She is energetic , she knows what she's doing. She will hunt people down if need be and got the venue, catering, wedding rentals, on the same standards as she offered me. She gave me list of things to do, and if there are things that I can't do, she's on top of it. She never seem to amaze me of how organize she is, and even when there was a little incident during my wedding, she ran to me right away with water on her hand, got everyone out of the way and made sure I was okay. I tell her what I want and she does it without hesitation. She is an amazing decorator and I trusted her intuition and what she created was more than I could ever hope for. I think she and Josh makes a good team. Josh is more the business-like kind guy. I think he calms Alex down because I'm sure if Josh wasn't there for the important meetings, me and Alex would have just kept talking for hours about the wedding. I also applaud him for being patient with my family. I have a huge family, and we are loud and there were some language barriers because we speak Ilocano. He would tell people to stay in one place for a family photo, then the next thing you know they vanish as soon as he turns around. I felt so bad for him, but he kept it together and got all of them together for a huge family photo.  I can't wait to see the pictures! What's great about Cateraoke is that they will work with your budget and they always find a way to make it work. They will make sure they will find the cheapest price for any items you need. They also played great music and their staff was very nice. I could have not asked for a better wedding and it was successful because of them. I secretly wish Alex was my life coordinator... lol... I can assure you that you will be in great hands of you decide to hire Cateraoke. They are amazing! More...
