We recently got married at Early Mountain Vineyards in Charlottesville, VA in early March and were lucky enough to have Rachel of A Muse Photography as our photographer. While we reached out to a few local photographers, we knew immediately that we wanted to work with Rachel. Not only is her work incredible, but when we met her in person, we instantly loved her and realized what a fun, outgoing and wonderful person she is. Her love for her work is obvious and she was more than willing to work with us to create the ideal package for our engagement and wedding photos. Rachel was incredibly responsive from the moment we started working with her, which put me at ease since we scheduled her nearly a year before our actual wedding date - she even recommended the videographer we hired! During our engagement shoot, she captured incredible moments with us and our two pups and gave us a variety of amazing photos to choose from for our Save the Date. As the wedding got closer, Rachel made sure she got all the necessary information - desired poses, timeline, etc. - so that on the day of, everything went smoothly. Rachel and her assistant photographer, Jenny, were absolutely incredible on our wedding day - there was snow on the ground and it was freezing while we were taking photos outside, and it didn't even phase Rachel or Jenny, they powered through and were snapping away the entire time! The moments they captured are more than we could of imagined - we honestly love each photo Rachel gave us (and trust me, there are hundreds!!) Because Rachel has a wide range of experience and a diverse portfolio, she is able to add her artistic style and create gorgeous wedding photos you will want to look at over and over again. She is truly a perfectionist and made me, my husband, the bridal party, and our families and guests look their very best on our most important day! For all you brides to be, do yourself a favor and hire Rachel of A Muse Photographer - she is simply the best!

Rachel was as sweet as can be. I'm so glad my wedding planner recommended I look at her work. She was so fun to work with and made you feel comfortable in front of the camera. You never really think about how easy it would be to feel uncomfortable having your every move photographed, but she makes it easy and just kind of fades into the background. She gives you guidance on what to do in front of the camera but isn't pushy and the result is just drop dead gorgeous photographs. She was organized and professional and she had our photos back to us in a really reasonable amount of time after the wedding and was so great about sending us her favorites along the way as she was editing. Our pictures were just amazing and I would recommend her to anybody!

We can't say enough good things about Rachel and A Muse Photography. Rachel isn't the typical older stuffy photographer that will make you take the "canned" wedding shots. Her style is more modern and she's got a great eye for setting up different shots that really look incredible. When you book with Rachel, part of the package is a pre-wedding shoot that we did a few weeks before the wedding. We chose to use this shot for engagement photos and it was a great way to get to know Rachel, so that by the time the wedding came around, it wasn't a cold relationship. She felt like a friend. The engagement shots were incredible....seriously, incredible. She is professional, fun, and throughout the wedding night was always around taking shots in a non-intrusive way. She must have taken thousands of photos! She also got our wedding photos completed in record time (20-30 min) so that we could focus on the best part of any wedding....dancing and partying all night! Steph and I can't recommend Rachel enough. We liked her so much that we've already been in touch about doing our newborn photos in the spring. She will always be our go-to photographer in the future. Book Rachel now, you definitely won't regret it!
