Total Awesomeness :)

We are beyond thrilled and impressed with Rachel and her vision! She was very easy to work with, communication was great, and we could tell she worked very hard to get the shots that were in her mind. She captured so many great images of every aspect of our wedding that we have PLENTY of amazing shots to choose from. She was very accommodating to some of our requests and knocked our photos out of the park! As a former wedding photographer myself, you can imagine how many shots and sets up were going through my head on game day :) It was so pleasant and relaxing watching her work and seeing her get these shots. A big thanks to her and her team for capturing our day and making us look amazing :)

If you're thinking about her for your wedding or event, just do it!

Highly Recommend!

Highly recommend Beats and Focus! They were super communicative and asked all the questions I hadn鈥檛 even thought about. They made sure all of our wedding guests were up and dancing and the music played was what we wanted! They were very professional and I would absolutely choose them again.

Fantastic!!!!

Beats and Focus provided my ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception music. They were very attentive and worked well with us if the schedule changed. They kept the party going, listened to our music preferences, and kept everything clean and organized.

Hi! I鈥檓 Rachel, photographer/runner of things @ Beats and Focus. Why do I love weddings? I love watching happy people celebrate! I love meeting new people and laughing with Aunt Linda and cousin Bob. I also love the challenge of effectively telling a story using the best lighting and composition possible. The amount of variables involved at any one given time to get the best image, is the coolest challenge to me... And then knowing you will emotionally connect with those images for life and tell the story of your love, is the coolest thing to me. Thank you for considering us for your wedding!

Hello! DJ Matt, here. Thank you for considering us for your wedding day! When it comes to DJ, I've found a love for people, a deep knowledge of music, a mastery of equipment, and a passion for romance are what really make your wedding day rock. We'd be honored to be part of your epic celebration. All the best to you and your loved ones!
