If you're looking for refreshingly real photography that will still make you smile fifty years from now, you've come to the right place! I believe the best photos capture not only how you great you look, but also how happy you feel together.
I typically work with people who consider exceptional photography their highest budget priority. My couples want a little bit of everything in their wedding photos: authentic and creative portraits, beautifully composed images of their ceremony, candids of the friends and family surrounding them, photos of the details they've worked hard to pull together, and a few traditional family photos for their parents and grandparents to frame. In every type of photography, I seek to capture the most authentic and beautiful images of my couples and their wedding day.
Over the years I've worked with dozens of happy couples and earned a number of awards and publications, and all of that experience has developed the photography skills and wedding day expertise to help you craft a perfect photography timeline and photo list (and also adjust for weather and other unpredicable elements!) I love using my expertise to help couples feel relaxed and confident about their wedding photography so they can enjoy every moment of their day without worrying about how the photos are turning out.
If you want to know more about me and my work, I invite you to grab a cup of coffee (or wine!) and take a look at my website! I have a great blog post with some insider secrets to help you find the right photographer for you.

Rachael’s work is amazing! She is not only a photographer and a photojournalist but truly a talented artist. Rachael was able to capture the love and emotions and excitement of everyone involved in our wedding and let it shine through each one of our thousands of pictures. From my bridal shoot to the entire wedding day, the photos are uniquely stunning. She is a joy to work with and is bursting with ideas! As a bride who worked hard to plan a beautiful day, it’s been the most unexpected gift to have found the perfect photographer to capture every moment and turn it into a breathtaking, timeless collection of memories. The final product has blown me away and allowed my husband and I to relive our magical wedding day. Thank you Rachael for sharing your time and your talents with us!Sent on 10/05/2013

Amazing photographer, cared about capturing emotions
Rachael is an awesome photographer and a great person. We had several goals, all of which she over-delivered on: (1) capture emotions and people more than things; (2) take photos that capture the moment as it is, with minimal 'special effects' / filters; (3) make sure we're comfortable in front of the camera.
We always knew we were safe on (1) and (2) - all of Rachael's portfolio reflect these goals.
(3) was the most surprising and awesome - Rachael made us very comfortable during our engagement shoot and continued that positivity, trust, and reassurance throughout the wedding. The photos from both sessions (which include free black-and-white copies of each photo) turned out amazingly well, in large part because we were so comfortable with her taking photos of us, even in close quarters. We're so happy to have these memories documented forever in such a high-quality way.

Talented, personable, professional
Rachael was stellar on every level - responsive to our questions before hiring, eager to know our preferences and made accommodations in response to them, imaginative/creative in the sessions themselves, delivered a beautiful product in a timely manner...the list goes on. What I found especially impressive on our wedding day, was how she adapted her style and instruction from our portraits to the group family photos.. she can easily navigate large groups and capture intimate couple moments.
Before we hired Rachael, a consistent theme from wedding-planning voices was that your relationship with your photographer is one of the most important, because you spend a significant portion of the day with them, and their business model relies not only their product, but on their rapport with you, more than any other vendor. We were so happy to have a photographer we trusted, which freed us to just enjoy the day and let Rachael take the lead when needed, or excel in the background. Rachael is an artist and a friend! Thank you for everything.
Through my time in taking part of creating life long memories, I have never met anyone quite as extraordinary as Rachel. Not only that she is a professional photographer, she is a warm, friendly and kind person, trying to perfect herself in what seems every step. She is organized and it makes the task of working with her so much easier. I was impressed how natural and at ease everyone felt around Rachel. If needed, she gave just the right directions for the clients to relax and enjoy their day, all the while being calm and focused and laid back as well. As for working with Rachel it was a true pleasure sharing ideas and visions with a lifestyle photography professional. RimasFilms was humbled and privileged to be acquainted with Rachel Foster photography.
