Highly recommendReviewed on 1/19/2015 Amy C
Diana served as our photographer for our wedding on January 10, 2015. We cannot express how great of a job she did on our wedding. Diana was instantly likeable, very professional and extremely fast in getting our photos back to us. We received in excess of 1,100 photos from our wedding less than 3 weeks after the event, which was incredible. She did a great job of capturing all the key moments of our wedding and we were very pleased with how the photos came out. She was very easy to work with throughout the whole process from booking to receipt of photos and we would definitely recommend her to anyone.
When I first stumbled upon El Folio Entertainment, I thought that the price was too good to be true. I first booked DJ Evan for one of my middle school dances at the school where I teach, and I couldn’t get home soon enough to secure his services for my wedding. El Folio Entertainment offers an extremely affordable option for music and photography. Evan and Diana are some of the kindest, hardest working people with whom I have had the honor of working. DJ Evan worked with my venue coordinator to create a perfect ceremony and reception. He kept everything flowing, guided us through the schedule, and kept people dancing! He worked with our special requests and even bought a Zumba song in the middle of the reception so that we could dance to it. Leading up to the wedding, he was easy to get ahold of when I needed him, but the online event planner is so easy to use that we didn’t need to talk much. Diana was easy-going, flexible, and unobtrusive throughout the entire afternoon and evening of my wedding. She was fast and efficient for my husband who hates having his photo taken, and she was more than understanding when he asked for a break. When I got the photos, I was blown away with their beauty. I also used their photobooth which people enjoyed thoroughly! If you’re considering using Evan and Diana for your wedding, stop considering and book them immediately!
Evan & Diana were our DJ & Photographer for our wedding on May 28th, 2017. They were simply amazing! We weren't really sure what to expect, as everything was planned and coordinated online. I felt at ease also knowing they had done fabulous work at one of our closest friends weddings in the past. Everything worked out perfectly and everything was thought of from start to finish; they were a huge help in solving decisions we had not even thought of. Music was great and the pictures came out perfect! The Photobooth option was also huge hit! El Folio also offers ceremony videography which is a nice memory to have to look back on. Highly recommend and affordable! Thank you both for everything!
After much research, my (now husband) and I found Evan and sent him an email. He was always quick to respond, usually immediately. He was one of the few DJs who was willing to play a list of songs I wanted to play. He was on time and ready to go. It was SUPER impressive when I sent him a timeline of the wedding --- then on the day he would say "okay, its about time for the bouquet toss, let me find the photographer, you'll want pictures of this..." It was such a great help. He was always on top of everything, even things not in his job description. Also, before introductions, he prepped our family and wedding court when to go and the order right before walking in. VERY great guy to work with. Our wedding was a hit! Our guests were dancing the whole night.
Evan was amazing to work with. He was so responsive and helpful throughout the planning experience. He helped make our day perfect and everyone can't get over how amazing the music was! The photobooth was also extremely fun and popular! Awesome experience!
DJ Evan and Diana Foley are the best. They deliver top notch service at an incredible price. The music and lighting were perfect, and Diana's photos will be treasured for years. This professional couple arrived when agreed and were completely prepared with every detail. Diana was unobtrusive while taking pictures and Evan kept the few dancers we had on the floor all day. You will not find a better value in Vermont for any event. 1000% satisfied.
This is a great service, and I would highly recommend the Foleys to anyone. The online tool made it extremely easy to plan from afar (we were planning our Vermont wedding from San Diego) and also reminded us to think about details that we never would have thought of on our own. We originally booked this service because the price was unbeatable and saved us a couple thousand dollars compared to other DJs and Photographers, but the service we received was worth just as much as any of the others. Compliments came in all night and after the wedding about how great the DJ was. The photographer took any photo we wanted (including some out on the deck in the cold January weather!) We couldn't recommend these guys enough.
Evan and Diana were amazing! I was a little skeptical about never meeting them or talking on the phone and just doing the online worksheets but it couldn't have gone any better.. they really worked with us and moved stuff around last minute without any hesitation. Our family is kind of big and overpowering and Evan kept us all in line.. the music was fantastic and Diana really worked well with all of us! 5 big stars!!! Highly recommended! And the price is unreal!
Evan is just incredible! His professionalism, energy, organization and top-notch DJ skills are unmatched in Vermont (and beyond). He kept us on track with his amazing online tool which allowed us to make changes while keeping track of everything in one place. He was amazing at mastering names, flow, and timing and adapted to changes on the fly. I seriously felt like I didn't have to worry about a thing! I urge anyone planning their wedding to do themselves a favor and hire Evan! Thank you so, so much Evan for making our wedding so special. We are truly grateful!
Diana and Evan were fantastic from the start of the wedding to the very end. Working with them both was so easy. Evan blended the songs together and no one ever left the dance floor. Diana came to the house we were getting ready at and put up with all craziness that was my family. The pictures were beautiful and everything turned out great.
We highly recommend DJ Evan Foley! We used him for our wedding 06/2016. The online planner made selecting our songs extremely easy and allowed us to plan ahead. I also felt the online planner helped me to plan my day and to know just what events I would need to choose a song for. With all that goes into planning a wedding it was nice to have a list of what events I should choose songs for instead of trying to think of them all myself (i.e. cake cutting, last song, etc). We also used Evan for our ceremony music. I was a bit nervous about how the ceremony would go and if the songs I chose would be timed correctly. I also chose a cover of a popular song by a small instrumental band and was wondering if it would be an option. Evan exceeded expectations and our ceremony went perfectly! He used the exact versions of the songs I requested and everything was timed seamlessly, volume was appropriate, etc. The same was true for the music for our reception. Evan played almost all of the songs on our request list while also keeping the dance floor full. Our friends absolutely love to dance and thus have high expectations for music - Evan definitely kept everyone happy! Evan was also great about following our schedule and checking in with us when needed to keep things on track. The DJ essentially runs your wedding day so it was nice to have someone we could completely trust! Evan also provided uplighting for our ceremony in our wedding colors as we selected in the online planner. This was a great extra detail that was included in the price. Evan has very fair pricing and we enjoyed that he had a "non-Saturday" discount. Thank you so much Evan for helping to make our day wonderful!
We hired Diana and Evan to be our Photographer and DJ for our wedding, and they were both amazing! The online tools they provide are very helpful in preparing ahead of time, and had us address things we wouldn't have known or thought about until it was too late. Evan was great at using the questionnaire we filled out as a guide for music selections and timing. He did a really great job helping to usher us along and have everything go smoothly and according to schedule, but was not pushy about it. He also did a great job reading the crowd and playing the right music at the right times. Diana was a great photographer, and really helped us get some amazing shots. We had a vague idea about "having pictures done by the waterfront", but not much beyond that. Diana's experience really came in handy, and she was very good about helping us find the right places and poses for our pictures. I would highly recommend either and/or both of them to anybody.
Evan was our DJ for our winter wedding on 1/8/16 at Mountain Top Inn and Resort. We had few options when getting married in a rural area and I reached out to all of the local companies to make sure we picked the best one for our budget. We chose Evan almost solely based on the endless five-star reviews - and were honestly so impressed with his affordable price even with all of the reviews. I have worked in higher education for the past few years and have worked with many DJ's for college events and I have to say Evan is one of the BEST I have worked with. His online site for us to use prior to our wedding was great, as we could add songs to it over the course of a few months. I stopped by to say hello after getting my hair and make-up done around noon and he was already there setting up for our 3:30-11pm wedding. All in all, the dance floor was PACKED for the entire night, the music was great, and people loved the music. We could not have asked for a better DJ and would 110% book Evan again for an event! Thanks Evan!
Evan was great!!!! He kept the crowd going the entire time. Such a varied age group from 6 months to 91 years old and everyone had a blast. Two thumbs up!
Highly recommend!Reviewed on 9/24/2014 Claire C
I highly recommend Evan! He is responsive, organized, skilled in his craft, and does it all with a smile! His song selections, song order, mixing skills, and song transitions were seamless - we received numerous comments throughout the night from our guests about how "how great the DJ was". His online planner beforehand was comprehensive and user-friendly. He's detail-oriented (to make sure your vision for the day is met) yet flexible (to work with unexpected changes that are thrown his way - and trust me, there will be unexpected changes on the wedding day :)). He was exactly the kind of vendor you would want!
We Loved Evan!Reviewed on 8/04/2013 Bryn C
We were so happy with DJ Evan. He was easy to get in touch with and always very positive. Most importantly he did an amazing job keeping everyone on the dance floor - we had never seen so many people dancing at a wedding before! DJ Evan arrived hours before the ceremony to make sure the acoustics worked for our mic and the guitarists at the ceremony. When the bus didn't come to pick up guests he offered to help shuttle people for us! He really went above and beyond - We would highly recommend using El Folio Entertainment and DJ Evan
Great Service!Reviewed on 7/14/2013 Sheila Y
Diane the photographer was really easy to work with. She got many great shots, and was able to coordinate group/family pictures well. For the price though I did expect the quality to be a bit better. I would recommend this vendor, only if the price was negotiable.
Kept us dancing all night!Reviewed on 10/26/2012 Victoria K
Evan was amazing! I told him before the wedding that I wanted to be dancing all night! The dance floor was never empty! We got so many great pictures of everyone having the time of their lives. I have never in my life seen my father dance as he did at my wedding. I am forever thankful to Evan for getting my daddy out on the floor shaking his tail feathers all night long! He handled requests, even the crazy ones, without missing a beat! We ended up with multiple dance offs on the dance floor and had the time of our lives. He really had the party going, very impressive!
AwesomeReviewed on 10/09/2012 Shannon C
Evan did a great job! Would highly recommend.
Awesome DJ!Reviewed on 7/24/2012 Ashley C
We absolutely LOVED El Folio as our DJ. Since we were nervous about having just hired him randomly, we asked to meet with him a couple months before the wedding, just to introduce ourselves and chat for a few minutes. He was very willing to drive all the way from Arlington, Vt up to Burlington to meet with us on a Sunday afternoon. We felt very confident with our choice after having met him and even more excited about the wedding. We included video of our ceremony in our package and were pleased with the result (and it was waiting at our house when we got back from our honeymoon). He also provided and set up the microphone and amplification for our ceremony. He played great music and people were out on the dance floor the entire night! We can't remember exactly when he left, but he definitely stayed later than his contracted time. He also gave us (as he was leaving) the CD he'd made of our "special" songs - father/daughter, mother/son, wedding party entrance, first dance, etc. It was pretty much the sound track for our honeymoon! We would definitely book El Folio again!
Great Value!Reviewed on 7/23/2012 Meghan R
Diana takes really great photos. Today there are so many photographers that rely on computer editing, it is nice to actually have great photos before using a comp software
AMAZING PHOTOS! EXCELLENT DJ!Reviewed on 1/16/2012 Krissy C
Diana arrived at the Church early and popped in to take my getting ready pictures at the perfect time. In fact, she even sat and gave us a preview of the photos at the end of the reception. When we got home from our honeymoon less than a week after the wedding, the photo cds were already in our mailbox! That was faster than the marriage certificate! Diana's husband Evan was our DJ and they both spent a good amount of time with us taking portrait shots at the reception without being intrusive at all - plus they thought of great shots that we never thought of and are very happy to have now. They had the timing down great! Diana's pictures are phenomenal! She even got amazing shots of our 9-month old niece who was wiggling around the whole night! Diana literally captured every single highlight from the entire wedding - ceremony, reception and in-between! We are very happy that we chose El Folio as our photographer and DJ!!! As far as the music, we were also so thrilled and extremely comfortable. My husband and I don't normally dance, but we danced all night. Evan even made sure to time out songs that we dedicated to specific people. He had a great variety of music and kept everyone happy the whole night!
Fun DJReviewed on 10/31/2011 Kim A
Very professional, and made our wedding very organized and fun. Great transitions from song to song.
El Folio EntertainmentReviewed on 10/13/2011 Ally C
DJ Evan did a fantastic job at my wedding. He was really responsive to my emails throughout my planning process and he had everything set up and looking great on time. He was very professional but he had an approachable personality and my guests really enjoyed dancing at my wedding. His price is fantastic for the value.
Could not have asked for better!Reviewed on 8/16/2011 Paige S
I had first seen Evan as a DJ at my brother's wedding and knew I wanted him at mine as well. He showed up early, travel costs included, and was set up way in advance of the reception. He worked so well with the other vendors and made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it. He kept everyone dancing & knew how to read the crowd. I still get compliments on him even weeks after the wedding. He was very professional the entire time & dressed well for the occasion.
