History

Kevin Redford is the Owner and Lead DJ at Redford DJs. However, Kevin’s introduction to the world of wedding entertainment has a slightly ironic beginning. It all began with Kevin’s father, Michael Redford.

Having spent much of the 1970s as the drummer for popular Pittsburgh wedding band ‘Revelation’, Michael transitioned into the Wedding DJ business with a company called  ‘That’s Entertainment.’  The concept of a DJ spinning records at a wedding was new to the Pittsburgh area. Michael even jokes that after he DJ’d his first wedding, a guest asked to meet the band as ‘they sounded just like the record.’ The idea that people could dance without a band was a foreign concept to this area.   Michael Redford all but introduced the Wedding DJ to Pittsburgh.

A few years later Michael hung up his headphones to start Redford Photography. As most photographers do, Michael started in the photography business working the 12-15 hour days as a wedding photographer.

In those early years Michael would take his son to weddings as a photographer/assistant. So at the age of 10 Kevin started his 20+ years in the Pittsburgh Wedding Business.

After a few years behind the camera on those long wedding days, Kevin transitioned back to his father’s love for entertaining at Pittsburgh weddings.

Kevin, Rick, and Andy are all long time Redford Photography employees who began their professional wedding career behind the camera.

 

 

 

 

You learn so much about the wedding industry as an observer, when you see it all through a lens. Spending as much time as we have as wedding professionals and vendors, we know how to make a wedding spectacular. -Kevin Redford.
