    Best Wedding Photographers

    My husband and I absolutely loved working with Rach and Kyle for our engagement and wedding photos! They were very communicative and helpful throughout the planning process. From the time we met them at our consultation to our wedding day, they exuded the knowledge and creativity to achieve our dreams. Beyond that, the photos they captured at our engagement session and on our wedding day were absolutely stunning- we鈥檝e gotten endless compliments from family and friends! I cannot recommend them enough!

    Hire them!

    I cannot stress enough how much we loved working with Rachel and Kyle! Every moment was captured so perfectly and I feel like you can really see both of our personalities in every photo. Both our engagement and wedding photos were so much fun and they made my husband and I feel comfortable and confident the entire time. Neither of us are particularly fond of getting our picture taken, so we were really nervous when we first started planning our wedding. After our engagement session I was actually so excited to do it again! They were very flexible and helped our day run way smoother than it would have without them there. We just got our photos back and I am absolutely in love with every single one of them! If you鈥檙e unsure about investing in an amazing photographer for your wedding, IT IS SO WORTH IT!!

    Birthday Boudoir

    I had such a fabulous experience with Rachel for my birthday boudoir session!! She listened to my ideas and ran with it, was organized, and super communicative. She had drinks ready, music playing, and things set up when I arrived (what a cool space btw), then we laughed and enjoyed ourselves from then on! Rachel was great with giving direction on how to move/pose during the session, and I loved the positive encouragement and support.

    The following day was my birthday and she sent over some killer teaser photos (I mean come on)!! I LOVE all the photos, you can definitely see the artistic eye and incredible attention to detail in the work. It was so challenging to narrow them down and I can鈥檛 wait to see the final book! I鈥檓 so glad I found North Arrow Creative and can鈥檛 wait to work with them again in the future!

    Out of this world!

    RUN, DON'T WALK to book this incredible team. I cannot say enough about our experience with Kyle and Ray. They truly made our whole wedding process so special, from our engagement pictures to the last dancing pictures from the wedding. Not only are they both so talented, but they are also amazing people and that comes out in every picture. They made us feel so comfortable and taken care of throughout the entire process and I could not recommend them more. I am beyond thrilled to be able to look back at all of the pictures for years to come!

    Best choice i've ever made!

    I've used North Arrow Creative for ANY and ALL of my photography needs, and will 100% continue to do so! Ray and Kyle are extremely personable, beyond hilarious, indubitably comfortable to be around, and are full of lively, positive energy. They're very punctual and professional, and their work never falls short of museum-worthy masterpieces.

    A big part of what really made them stand out to me, was their ability to give me direction on how to move/pose during sessions, in addition to their constant encouragement. I can shy/awkward in front of the camera, especially with a stranger or someone I don't know well, but never once have I been nervous when working with Ray and Kyle.

    I love how genuinely positive and encouraging they are. Their sincerity and vibes really boost my confidence during sessions and make it so easy for me to loosen up. North Arrow Creative will always be my first recommendation when asked, and my first choice when needing photos/videos!

    The best photographers ever!

    The best photographers ever!!! We would never consider anyone else. They are super sweet and extremely professional. We booked them for our engagement session and wedding photos. They are so good at directing couples while still letting us do our own thing. They are great at capturing candid moments as well. We have loved all the photo sessions we have worked with them!

    North Arrow Creative's reply:

    Thank you so much for the kind words, Kylie! We loved capturing your engagement and wedding and wish you guys all the best!!!

    100% recommended! Best experience

    By far the best experience we could have asked for. Ray and Kyle did any amazing job capturing our engagement photos and our wedding photos. I recommend doing both engagement and wedding with them! We felt like we knew them by the wedding day and it made the experience that much better! We were comfortable around them and that made the posing and the reactions in the photos so much more genuine. I couldn鈥檛 be more thankful of them and their insane amounts of talent behind the camera. 1000/10 can鈥檛 recommend them enough!

    North Arrow Creative's reply:

    Thank you so much for the review, Lily!!! We loved capturing your engagement and wedding and are so happy for you!

    Gorgeous photos

    We absolutely loved working with Kyle and Rachel for our engagement and wedding photos. They are so friendly and excited about giving you the best possible experience. We originally reached out to them because we loved their vibrant, rich style, and we were not disappointed. They are an absolute pleasure to work with. They鈥檙e very organized and had checklists and timelines prepared for us, as well as a questionnaire to get to know us better and allow them to come up with creative ideas for us. Doing the engagement shoot before the wedding was definitely a plus because it put me at ease for the big day. I tend to be somewhat of an introvert so I wasn鈥檛 expecting to enjoy the session as much as I did, but they made it so relaxing and enjoyable it felt like we had hired friends to photograph us. They gave us super helpful tips on how to pose well not only during posed shots but also during certain moments during the ceremony to get us the best possible candid shots. We had a very large wedding party and they were able to keep everyone organized and ahead of schedule on the big day. We also had what could be described as not ideal weather for our outdoor pavilion wedding, but Rachel and Kyle handled it like absolute troopers and were able to capture incredibly beautiful moments amongst the chaos. And of course, the pictures turned out incredible. They were just as vibrant and rich as we hoped and really captured the joy and energy of the day. We will absolutely be using their services again and would happily recommend them to anyone!

    They helped make our day the best day ever!

    Rachel and Kyle provided the best Pre-wedding, Wedding, and Post-wedding experience! Highly professional, friendly, and caring of our wants and needs.

    They met with us virtually ahead of time to get to know us, our story, where we were having the Ceremony and Reception. Truly felt like they were present, receptive, and thoughtful! They took thorough notes during that meeting, and followed up with emails to further the information they would make relevant on our big day.

    On the day of, they were incredibly professional and took so many pre-, during, and post-ceremony pictures. They were highly inconspicuous, which resulted in such great candid photos. We and our families couldn't have been more pleased with the results of the pictures and videos!

    I would highly recommend them for any of your photography/videography needs!

    Kudos to you Rachel and Kyle for helping make our day the best day of our lives!

    The Absolute Best

    There are no words to describe the level of talent and perfection that Rachel, Kyle and their team brought to our wedding day. They were able to wrangle our group, make everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera and deliver the most beautiful photos and video we could have ever hoped for.

    During our engagement session, they took the time to curate a shoot that was custom to us and fit with who we are as a couple. And they brought that same intimate feeling to our wedding day.

    They thought of everything from timeline and location scouting to even bringing biodegradable confetti for some special shots on-location. They were able to work on the fly and adapt as things changed, as things inevitably do during an event.

    Even if they were stressed, they never showed it and just exuded the most wonderful, exciting energy that permeated to the rest of the group.

    I can't imagine what our day would have been like without them, but I know it wouldn't have been anywhere as perfect.

    North Arrow Creative is Superior. Period.

    Me, my husband, and our entire families have fallen madly in love with North Arrow Creative! Due to Covid we needed to find a photographer in 2 months time and North Arrow happened to be available by the grace of God! They were more than accommodating and whipped up everything we needed in a matter of a few weeks. They provided a well thought out timeline, they had scouted our location, and had talked with us extensively about our vision for our wedding day. When it came to our wedding day, we felt like we were in amazing hands with Kyle and Kegan! They were both such joyful people to be around it was clear they are complete pros at their job and have shot tons of weddings. They were great at adjusting on the fly to any photo ideas we had and even went out of their way to accomplish this grand concept I had for a photo in my mind and it turned out better than anticipated! The turn around time for our photos was within 2 weeks and the photos that the team had selected just captured every aspect of our wedding day perfectly! I feel like I am reliving the day time and time again. Another big aspect that we took into consideration when choosing North Arrow was their editing style. It is so timeless and not over done so I know we will want these photos on display until we are old and gray. I truly cannot recommend every member of this team enough and hope that everyone considering North Arrow Creative will book them ASAP! It is so worth every, single dime!
