We hired this team for our wedding photography and video and we could not be happier with our choice. Ryan was so helpful throughout the process of planning the day and customizing the service to fit our needs. I remembered during the first consultation I loved all the demos they had in their office because they are so good at capturing the beauty of the surroundings and the couple. The day of the wedding they were on time, professional and super nice. They easily adapted to the crazy timeline the day of and we took most of the pictures we wanted in a limited amount of time. They were super fun to be around with that day too. We got the pictures yesterday and we could not be more pleased. Both Andrea and Ryan are so talented! We definitely recommend them to other brides because they are wonderful!

Marco was professional and creative. I am extremely detailed oriented, but on the day of my wedding, it was a whirlwhind. Having Marco direct me, my groom and the bridal party was a relief to me. I could let go and just enjoy the day. He was on the whole day and never missed a beat. Focused on Forever is a wonderful photography studio and I will use them again.

Ryan, Marco and Jennifer with Focused on Forever Photography were simply amazing! Ryan was so accommodating when working with us to create a timeline for our wedding day, was professional and punctual, met with us at different locations, and kept us on a tight schedule which allowed us to get all the great shots we wanted. He walked us through our “first look” before the ceremony and created a moment we will never forget. It was a great decision, which allowed us to get so many pictures before the ceremony that we were able to enjoy the cocktail hour. We decided to add the videography at the last minute, but were so happy we did once we saw how they had captured and documented the beauty and uniqueness of our day as it unfolded. Ryan and his team were especially great at unobtrusively snapping photos without interrupting the natural flow of the wedding day events. It’s going to be hard picking photos for our album, since they are all so beautiful!!!

Focused on Forever is a company that I (as an event planner) have had the privilege of working with for many of our client's events. Most recently, they were the photographer for my niece's wedding. Being on the client side of working with them gave me an even greater appreciation for how wonderful they are to work with. They are top notch, talented photographers with personalities that really make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. The proof is always in the gorgeous images they capture, time and time again. I highly recommend Focused on Forever, to my clients as well as to my personal friends and family.

Ryan and Andrea were the icing on the cake during our wedding planning. With a limited budget they were able to cater to the critical moments we wanted to remember from the wedding. Getting ready with my mother, walking down the aisle, and our family together on the beach. The photos were amazing and we were able to choose double print for the price of one for a period of time. We love them!

From the first meeting with Ryan and Andrea, I knew I wanted to book them for my wedding. Their work is amazing and they were so flexible throughout the entire process. I love the way our wedding pictures came out. We have so many great shots that is hard to decide which one I like the best for my album cover. I am still waiting to get my video but I just saw my highlights video and it was beautiful. I would definitely recommend Focused on Forever to other brides. You will not be disappointed.

During our wedding planning process my husband and I didn’t really think it was important to have a videographer and was settling on having just a photographer. People thought we were silly and others thought we were being realistic. We decided to have videography and met and received several quotes. We met with Ryan Zapatka and really liked that he was personable, flexible, and responsive besides the fact that he educated us on cinematography.

After seeing some of his work, we quickly realized that Ryan was a talented artist. We learned that Ryan took on projects for cinematography and his colleagues handled videography. We really liked Ryan and insisted that he capture our wedding....and he did! Although our budget didn’t allow for cinematography, Ryan was able to give us some details of cinematography i.e. moving cameras, different lenses etc.

Ryan and his team worked very well with our photographers. The jokes and banter between them made picture taking and video capturing fun and relaxed. Ms. Jennifer Sworn was great to work with during the editing phase of our highlight video and full video. We got married at the end of November which is a busy wedding time in south Florida as well as with Focused on Forever, therefore our highlight video took approximately two months to get to us and our main video took about four months.

Both Ryan and Jennifer are professional, kind, and very easy to work with. My husband and I are still in awe of how great our videos turned out. It was so beautifully filmed and captured us, our love and our day so perfectly.

Great Big Thanks to Ryan Zapatka and his team at Focused on Forever!

Thank you,
Tina & Tony

What a talented, skilled professional group of photographers/videographers we have had the pleasure of working with at my daughter's recent wedding. When we first visited their studio and reviewed their work, we understand why they had come so highly recommended. And, we knew we were with the right group. They did such an amazing job of "blending in" while taking all the photographs, that we hardly knew we were even being photographed! They truly were so considerate and took great pains to insure that all our requests were granted. Ryan and Andrea, the lead artists, were remarkably accommodating, and we feel so fortunate that we had the opportunity to work with such a wonderful group!

There are no words to express the quality, professionalism, and service that was provided by Focused on Forever Studio for our wedding day. The staff was courteous and went over the top for all our special needs. One of my main concerns about dealing with a videographer and photographer was I didn't want to take time away from our special day to take pictures.

I love Focused on Forever's photography work which I had seen in person and on the internet. When I originally spoke with Ryan I was kind of nervous about having a lead associate take the pictures at our wedding but due to our budget I really couldn't afford to do much more. They were very flexible with my Friday wedding and also good at working around our totally unorganized day! The pictures came out fantastic! A few people were missing from pictures but I have a feeling they weren't a part of the action that night anyways. Although the prices are a little on the higher end, they are most definitely worth it because without a doubt you will have beautiful pictures for you to always remember your special day. :)

Ryan, Andrea, and Marco are wonderful! During wedding planning, I was in constant contact with Ryan. He tailored a package to suit my needs and now I have incredible photos from my wedding day. Soon I will also have a video. I had such a wonderful experience working with this team of people that I have recommended them to several of my friends who are in the wedding planning process. This was definitely a GREAT investment!

To be honest, at first, my husband and I didn't want a wedding video. After convincing from my mom, we decided to do it. We could have not been happier with our decision to do the video and use Jennifer from Focused on Forever Studios. She did such an amazing job capturing the our day and making it come to life. The recap and the long video were both absolutely perfect. I highly recommend this company and Jennifer for anyone looking for a flawless wedding video!

I found the Focus on Forever Studios was very professional with the work they had done for my wedding.
We just received all the photos from the wedding the other day, they are even better the I could have dreams of them being.
I felt the that photography aspect was a very important part of the wedding, just bc those would be the memories that you would have for the rest of our lives, they did an outstanding job with everything.
I just LOVE the work they have done for my wedding, Ryan and his whole team are just wonderful.
You really do get what you pay for with the work that they do. I would recommend them to anyone who is having a wedding or a big event.
Love your work and can't wait to get the albums sent out to us.

Ryan and Andrea are the power duo behind lenses. Their team makes you feel comfortable on your wedding day while capturing every moment. My husband and I hired Focused on Forever for our wedding video but also ended up making a "Save the Date" video which became a huge hit with all our guests. Who can blame them, Ryan (Focused on Forever) packaged them like DVDs in professional covers before sending them out.

We are looking forward to getting our hands on the finished production of our wedding video. We already know its going to be amazing! Our guest and wedding party had nothing but great things to say about the videographers. We adore Ryan and Andrea and look foward to working with them again in the soon future!

Focused on Forever was the best decision we made for our wedding. They captured every little detail from the very beginning of the day to the very end. I look through the photos and the video and it brings me back to that blessed day. Even during the ceremony they set up a computer and had a slideshow playing of the pictures that they had taken so far from the day. They were just amazing and would refer them to everyone.

My husband and I were incredibly disappointed with Focused on Forever Photography. The images displayed on the website are not a true representation of the work produced by Ryan. Many of our wedding photos were disappointing and repetitive. More importantly, essential moments of our wedding were not photographed. Only a single photo was taken of our wedding party, there were no pictures taken of the train of my dress, my wedding ring, the beautiful hotel we were married at or my fiancé getting dressed for the wedding. There was little direction from Ryan and a lack of creativity on his behalf as a professional photographer. I am thankful for the photos that my friends and family captured because the quality of the professional images was poor. Focused on Forever was a terrible choice and I'm sad that I will never have images to remember The entirety of my wedding day. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!

Focused On Forever Studio responded with the following comments:

We are sincerely sorry to hear of this bride not liking her experience with our studio. Being that we have such a good track record with the over 800+ couples we have worked with over the last 10 years, we find it necessary to respond to this post for couples to see both sides of the story since we don't feel most of her claims were true and accurate.

There was over 2500+ images taken on the wedding day and as always we capture all the essentials possible! The bride's claims of missing certain items such as the rings, etc are simply just not true. They were there (and even in her blog post). We typically recommend arriving and being in the bride's room for 45-60 minutes before the bride is dressed to photograph details such as the dress, rings, etc however this bride and her wedding planner decided to go against our recommendation and 3 days before the wedding they wanted to cut the coverage and move the starting time to 20 minutes before the bride was supposed to be in her dress, her reasoning was "those shots before aren't very important to me". We said ok, as she wished and since this bride was not purchasing an album (we would certainly push it for design purposes for the beginning of the album if they were getting one), we were ok with their decision since they said it wasn't important to them. Also, no mention of her wanting the groom's prep covered, especially since they cut the prep coverage to only 20 minutes. We would require 90 minutes typically for one photographer coverage of the groom getting ready, the bride, and details. Its just not realistic with the 20 minutes of prep she requested and unfair to complain about this after the wedding. The bride was also late to her room, setting things behind schedule from the beginning and it was raining (this was the reason we didn't take a establishing shot of the front of the building, and because we were running behind due to the bride, we didn't find it reasonable to leave the bride and groom for 10+ minutes during non-stop events to run to the front of the hotel for a shot of the hotel.)

All the normal direction was given as any other wedding we photograph. We are not really sure what she means by this. Ironically, in fact, she had requested verbally over the phone that we do less of our typical "posing" (direction) and just capture the more candid moments of the day. While we took this approach, we still have much input on direction on the day (without it they would have been running even more late and not got even half of the images they did. Direction for best light, best first look location based on the rain, attempting to gather bridal party, family etc was all given). We always strive to give our clients the most in their imagery and experience.)

This bride also went with our coverage-only option, and did not order any final products from us, therefore she has nothing but proofs, not final retouched portraits, albums, etc so her claim to quality is not accurate, as she has no final actual products to be reviewing (low-res online proofing is not a viable way to judge quality of our work).

We went over and beyond on her rainy, wedding day to get as much as we could with her restricted time she allowed for us, the weather, and the fact they were running so far behind. Even when it cleared up just a little to take some portraits near the pool, and there was no one from the hotel around, my assistant and I found towels and were drying the concrete underneath her feet because it was wet, we always do everything we can to please our couples! We are sorry she didn't feel that way!

We did attempt to answer her questions and concerns, but her only request was if we could give her some free prints. We pointed her in the direction of her ring shots, etc, addressed her concerns and complied with a few of her other requests, but never heard back.

We are confident in our work, feel free to email us to see images from this wedding to see that her images actually look great!

Again, we are sorry she wasn't thrilled, but have to respectively disagree on her comments and doing so via a comment/forum is tough to do without someone reading it the wrong way, so I hope our reasoning and reply is read respectively, as we only would like our prospective brides to know the situation on her day!
