By Rebecca Studios | Accolades

"Rebecca is both an artist and an entrepreneur. She built the photo bureau at St. Catherine University while still a student and took it to professional heights after graduation. Eager to learn, a willing mentor, a team player — and a talented photographer who always put her subjects at ease. She became our department’s go-to person for projects large and small." Amy Gage, Strategic Communication and Community Relations at University of St. Thomas


"I cannot provide a more enthusiastic recommendation for a photographer than Rebecca Slater of By Rebecca Studios. I was aware of Rebecca's exceptional work at St. Catherine University and was eager to book her for the many photography needs we have in our department at the University of Minnesota, including professional head shots, lab photos, and special events. I appreciate her creativity and initiative to frame unique, interesting photos. It's such a pleasure to work with her since she is professional, responsive, and attentive. She is truly an invaluable resource for us." Gayle Gabrielski, Coordinator of Faculty Affairs and External Relations, University of Minnesota


"I'm recommending Rebecca with great enthusiasm. As the Chief Executive Officer at Apple Tree Dental, I had the opportunity to work directly with Rebecca, before, during and after a series of photo sessions involving thousands of photos. She is highly organized, works with teams of staff with ease, and is skilled at taking a wide variety of photographs for both internal and external uses. She has traveled to our six locations in Minnesota, and even to our location in California, and her interpersonal skills working with our staff, capturing great moments, our clinical facilities, and our patients are fantastic. She helps everyone relax and seems to capture the essence of each person beautifully. Her beautiful photos speak for themselves!" Dr. Michael Helgeson, CEO Apple Tree Dental


"Rebecca was a wonderful photographer. From our first meeting until the day of our wedding, she was always approachable and responded to our questions in a timely manner. She understood our expectations and we understood hers. Nothing was a surprise. She helped manage our large families and gave us direction on when to do photos and how to make them quick and painless. Rebecca gives you the rights to all your photos which is incredible! We were able to see all the pictures she took without having to choose a handful we wanted to keep. You can download and order pictures right from her website. We will definitely be using By Rebecca Studios for all our photography needs in the future." Kelsey and Javan


"Rebecca was fabulous - we couldn't have asked for more. First of all, and most importantly, Rebecca is a wonderful photographer. She puts people so at ease that she's able to snap pictures that are completely natural. It was important to us that the photographer we chose be unobtrusive so that guests would feel comfortable. Rebecca is a master - it's as though she was invisible and did little to detract from the ceremony and celebration. The pictures that she delivered to us were relaxed, creative, and fun. We were completely taken with the number of pictures from our two-day celebration that Rebecca delivered to us afterwards. No one had any idea she was that busy before, during and after the ceremony. The greatest compliment that we can give Rebecca is that by the end of our two-day celebration, she had become part of our family! Now our biggest challenge is deciding which of the many pictures she took should be framed and hung on our walls! Four thumbs up for Rebecca!" Catherine and Michael


"Rebecca did such a great job on both the engagement and wedding photos! She knew of such great places to go around Minneapolis to capture the best moments of our engagement and our wedding day! She was great working with the children in our party. Having an assistant allowed for many different views of the day. When we received all of our photos, we were more than thrilled with how they all turned out! Rebecca did such a great job and we would recommend her to anyone for anything occasion they may have!" Ben and Ben


"We met Rebecca during our engagement photo shoot about 6 months before our wedding. Our first impression was very good. She was very personable and made us feel very comfortable. And most importantly, it was so fun! She sent us a few texts later that day of her favorites and the rest were available on her website shortly after.


Leading up to our wedding, we had a shared Google doc where Rebecca started with an outline of our wedding day and then my husband and I filled in our must haves. Rebecca was so easy to work with and truly made it our day. On our wedding day, she really took charge and made sure we were staying on schedule. Rebecca recommnded unique staged pictures but also caught several candid moments. We couldn't have been happier with how our wedding pictures turned out!!" Cameron and Christine


"Personal yet unobtrusive: Her photography skills are top-notch. Rebecca did her research, communicated all that was necessary, offered creative photography and quality photos. She was included in a private wedding and an open reception - very respectful of our family and the event and yet flexible, taking initiative to produce quality photos. We could not have asked for a better photographer for our wedding and reception!" Belinda
