Some are high, like hearing your best friend turned officiant say "I now pronounce you...married!"
Others are lower, like the happy-sad tears that come when your mother gifts you a personally sewn handkerchief that your grandmother made.
And some fade out sweetly, like seeing the last of your family and friends leave your wedding and knowing it all went perfectly.
Each of these notes stand alone wonderfully. Played together, a magical story unfolds.
In music, there are so many different notes -- just like moments during YOUR wedding day.
SAY HELLO TO WEDDING PHOTOS THAT CAPTURE YOUR STORY WITH BEAUTY + INTENTION.
"Where do I even begin? 5 stars isn't enough."
I instantly knew that her bubbly, charming personality was exactly what we wanted to be around during our wedding day.
And as predicted, from the moment she entered our getting-ready space she didn't feel like a hired vendor, she felt like a friend. Her creative directions were spot on, and the results were nothing short of epic.
"THE BEST DECISION WE MADE."
Rachel is a complete joy and legend to work with. Her attitude is completely contagious - making us feel so at ease and relaxed in front of the camera.
Her natural talent for photography captured every special moment of us. The photos were so full of life, colors and texture! There’s so much magic. We cried. If you want the most authentic, unique, and fun photos, she’s your girl.”
"ALL OF OUR GUESTS COMMENTED ON HER PROFESSIONALISM"
Rachel felt more like a great friend who happened to be documenting our every move throughout the day -- which made for the most authentic photos.
Whenever you hire a wedding vendor, you’re inviting a random person to be part of your most special day. From the moment we met Rachel, everything clicked and we felt so comfortable booking her. Her energy is just amazing.
"5 stars is too few for someone with this much talent, vision and follow through"
My father is a photographer, having worked for LIFE Magazine throughout his career -- my whole family knows quality images when we see them. Finding the right wedding photographer was key for us and Rachel was the perfect choice.
Her work is so unique - she plays with shadows, unusual angles, and depth of field more than your average photographer. All of her wedding photo-sets tell such a beautiful story.
"I REALLY DON'T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT. SERIOUSLY."
Working with Rachel was honestly such a dream. She has an amazing eye for capturing the details, blends in seamlessly, and captured everything tastefully and artistically.
She kept the family formals quick and light, yet commanded the audience and directed everyone appropriately. She even took extra time after the wedding ended to shoot more portraits. We so appreciate that she went above and beyond to capture our moments for us.
