Megan’s approach to DJing weddings, "I love DJing weddings because I firmly believe the music & the DJ are key to making a memorable event! Without a doubt, everyone remembers a killer dance session & my aim is always to flood the dance floor. Weddings are special because guests come ready to celebrate, but also tricky with a wide range of demographics. My approach is mix genres, play the hits, and push the boundaries, as I want each party to be unique. I also collaborate w/ my clients to create a unique cocktail & dinner hour that can personalize a wedding while creating a specific vibe."

Just wanted to say thank you again for doing such an incredible job on Saturday!  You were SO GOOD!  I think I told you multiple people told me you were the best DJ they’d ever heard.  The most important thing for me at our wedding was for everyone to dance and have fun and you absolutely made that happen. Thank you so so much for helping to make it such an incredible night!

Megan was absolutely amazing.  She went above and beyond to help make our wedding reception exactly what we wanted.  She listened to our requests and from that knew exactly what we loved.  I would higher her and /or use Fig going forward for any event that we have.  We received so many compliments on her style.  Thank you so much for making our wedding a day to remember!

DJ Megan Taylor is an absolute delight to be around. During email exchanges before the wedding to meeting in person, she always had the most calming and cool presence about her. At our wedding, Megan had people on the dance floor from the moment it opened until the very last song. A month later, people are still talking about how awesome she was. We love her and wish we can have a dance party like that every weekend. DJ Megan Taylor is the BEST!!!

From our first meeting with Megan through the last note she played Saturday night, the experience was perfect. We were looking for someone who was NOT a typical wedding DJ but who WAS willing to be a true collaborator. We had a very specific range of musical tastes to satisfy, and she absolutely nailed it. Megan also brought lots of great ideas to the table and was so much fun to work with. Across the board, our guests loved the set of music she delivered, and it truly enhanced a flawless evening that we’ll never forget.
