Heck yes! You've decided to get married!!! I am so happy for you, and this is such an exciting time in your life! I know you have tons of planning to do, and it can be so overwhelming, but I promise you, Rachael Marie Photography is here to help!
I’ve been shooting weddings for almost 5 years now and I’ve learned so much about myself. I can quickly adapt to shifting timelines and think quick on my feet when the day might not be going according to plan. I’m detail oriented and WHEN i'm shooting any type of portraits, I care about the details. In other words, I'm a hands on photographer. if your train isn't just right, I'm here to fix it. I'll be sure your bouquet is held IN the perfect spot, his jacket is buttoned and of course, your squad is on point because I really want you guys to look and feel your best, okkkuuuurrr! I’m a sentimental individual and I catch myself getting all in my feelings on your wedding day by things like; first looks, vows and definitely the father of the bride speech. I’m also a person who values family and friends and hold them close to my heart. I pour everything into your wedding day because I want to make sure your experience is effortless and comfortable. I want to take portraits you're in love with and when you look back at your wedding photos, you're overcome with the love you both felt that day.

Words cannot even begin to describe the absolute AMAZING experience my fiancé and I had with Rachael! Our engagement shoot... stunning and so much fun! Our wedding photography... absolutely breathtaking and beyond anything I could have ever dreamed of! Boudoir shoot...OMG I have never felt more beautiful and comfortable in my own skin! Rachael is phenomenal! She is so professional but still makes you want to be her best friend at the same time! My husband makes fun of me because I told him after we met with her that I wanted us to be BFFs! She is so sweet and down to earth and truly wants to capture every moment that is most important to you! She was always available to answer any questions we had. Our picture turn around time... SPEEDY! It was so much fun to relive our Big Day with the amazing moments she captured. She captured anywhere from the sweetest first look I had with my dad to the crazy congo line my best friends and I formed on the dance floor. She was my favorite vendor I had at the wedding. One of my favorite things was how much she got to know Chad and I and what we wanted our photos to say about us. She captured the silliness of our engagement to the sexy of my boudoir and the true love that we will be able to show our kids and grandkids one day. I will DEFINITELY be using her to capture all the sweet moments life has to offer in the future.Sent on 12/07/2018

Rachael is absolutely incredible! First off she is extremely accommodating! She made sure the date and time worked perfectly with my schedule. She also kept in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I have done two different shoots with her. I did both with my boyfriend and she was amazing. The first was a wedding session and the second was a beach session. The first session I was very nervous because I am not good at posing or knowing what looks good for photos, (my boyfriend is the one who is good at that), but she guided me through everything step by step and the pictures turned out better than I could have ever imagined! At the second session on the beach I was also nervous because of being in a swimsuit but I have never felt more comfortable with a photographer than I did with her and she knew exactly how to make me feel beautiful! She is the photographer I will use forever!Sent on 07/24/2017

The most AMAZING photographer you could hire!
Rachael is seriously the best photographer you can find. I'm not joking. My husband and I had done a previous photoshoot and were so disappointed with how things turned out. After finding Rachael through a friends recommendation by Instagram, I fell in love with her photos! The attention to detail and posing was extremely important to me. Not only was Rachael so so cool to "hang out" with during the shoot (because that's what it felt like) but she really took ALL the pressure off when it came to what poses to do, where to look, and making sure everything is in place (hair, dress, jewelry, etc.). OMG and when you hire her (because you should), the teasers she shares on Instagram will make you squeal with excitement for you to get your photos! I can't tell you how many times I would stalk her Instagram feed to see those previews! It's an amazing feeling to know that not only were you able to have fun and relax during the photoshoot with her, but you are also going to get KICK ASS photos in the end. If you're looking for photographers, STOP. Just hire Rachael and you'll be so so glad you did.Sent on 12/17/2018
