Rachael was fantastic. She was great to work with in creating a list of shots and even better on the day of the wedding. She took care of everything and made the day stress free! She gathered everyone and made our day so relaxing. The bonus when we received the gallery was there ALL the pictures. There were so many pictures to look through and all the wedding attendees loved to see the mass amount of pictures. The pictures came out beautiful and everything plus more was captured. We could not have asked for more from Rachael. Thank you!Sent on 11/27/2019

Rachael and Karen, her assistant photographer, worked both our engagement photos and wedding. They both worked really hard to get an understanding of who my husband and I were as a couple, and wanted to know what we wanted out of our photos for our special day. I had no idea where to begin with photographs, but Rachael was there every step of the way to ease my mind and helped me find what I wanted out of our wedding photos. They were able to capture one of the happiest moments in our lives the way we envisioned it! We are truly grateful and blessed to have worked with them. If you are looking for a photographer to work your wedding, look no further!Sent on 11/07/2019

Everything we hoped for!!
What attracted us to Rachael's photography was the stunning realness in every shot- from relaxed powerful joy and emotion in the sentiment to the vivid and artistic capturing of light, line, and shadow of the composition. We wanted our photos to feel current without being too trendy to stand the test of time. Rachael completely exceeded our expectations in our entire gallery. Every shot is real, full of breath and stands as a true time capsule of each moment- and she captured them all! One of my worries as a bride was that there would be moments I wouldn't fully be present for on the day, but Rachael knew exactly what to capture. I could be in my own little bride-world and trust I wouldn't miss anything. And...She. Got. EVERYTHING!!! So many images, moments, and memories I didn't even think about. Looking through our final gallery is definitely a full-on re-living of the day. Beyond her artistry, Rachael served almost as a wedding planner (and life-saver) for us! I was planning our Galesburg, IL wedding from Canada, and with Rachael helping to organize the details of the day, I felt a great sense of relief to be in such good hands. She helped us create a timeline, with expert knowledge in what to realistically expect for time as the day unfolded. And she carefully protected what meant most to us in the day, ensuring we would not miss the most important things- the brilliant light of sunset (and she knows how to use light!!), and those oh so important first few moments alone as husband and wife. She even gave us a ride to our reception dinner when we realized we made arrangements for everyone else except us!! I would recommend Rachael to every bride. Her warmth and professionalism is matched by her sheer joy of all things wedding.Read LessSent on 01/05/2019
Rachael Schirano Photography's reply:I absolutely adored working with the two of you and am blown away by your sweet note. Your day was beautiful!
Rachael does a beautiful job - we are always excited when a bride tells us she has booked Rachael because we know we will receive some beautiful photos!!
One of the often forgotten, but oh so important business relationships in this industry is between photographers and the event décor & rental companies. We may be in the business of transforming a space, but the only way to capture the true beauty of an event/wedding is through the photographs. Plus; we hardly ever get to enjoy the full glory of our hard work or see the couples enjoy themselves. This is why we highly value photographers such as Rachel, because we rely on her keen eye for detail to see just how every design element came together to match the couple's vision. We also treasure the opportunity to be able to see wonderful pictures of each couple in their happiest moments!
Rachael is a wonderful photographer that gives her clients gorgeous photos with an artistic flare. We are always happy to work alongside Rachael!
