    The best photographer!

    Rachel's images speak for themselves, STUNNING! How did we looks so good in every photo and how did she get SO many details in one day?! I'm still in awe! On top of her being a true talent, she is incredibly kind and fun to work with. She made my husband and I so comfortable in front of the camera. Rachel, thank you for capturing THE best day of our lives, theses photos will be treasured for many generations.

    Thank you Rachel!

    Picking a photographer was the hardest part of our wedding planning process, there are sooo many out there and we knew the importance of picking one that was perfect for us. We did phone interviews with over 30 photographers over the course of 4 months. From the moment we first spoke to Rachel we knew she was exactly what we were looking for. Not only is she incredibly gifted behind the camera she has an amazing ability to make everyone feel comfortable at the same time. My husband and I had two wedding ceremonies in one day. That meant two outfits, two sets of portraits, two sets of first looks - there were infinite opportunities for us to run late or not get a shot we were hoping to get and Rachel made sure we got every single photo on our wish list and then some. She hadn’t photographed an Indian wedding prior to ours and she blew us away, but that’s how Rachel works. She is so incredibly intentional with every decision, every photograph, every edit, and even every email. Rachel also went out of her way and submitted our wedding to Martha Stewart and ended up getting us published on their website which was way beyond our wildest dreams. Hiring Rachel was truly the single best decision we made on our wedding day. She is so patient and understanding and we are forever grateful to her for not only a part of the best day of our lives, but playing such a large role in ensuring it went perfectly. We just received our wedding album and in true Rachel fashion it blew us away. We cannot wait to have the opportunity to work with her again.

    Absolutely amazing!

    We could not have asked for a better photographer for our wedding! Rachel and her team are so kind, personable, laid back and professional. They directed our very large families and bridal party with ease and patience which really helped everyone to feel comfortable and just enjoy our day. My husband and I, and our families, are not the best at posing for photos but somehow Rachel made it fun and everyone felt relaxed and happy - and it shows in all of our photos! We also could not be happier with our photos, they are stunning! She captured every detail and the best moments so beautifully and in a way that felt very in line with our personal style. Rachel also photographed our rehearsal dinner & welcome party, which was her idea because we didn’t want to do formal engagement photos. It was a great way to get some early couple pics before we sat down for dinner (instead of engagement photos), and it helped us and our guests to get to know Rachel before the wedding day. Even after our wedding, we received many compliments from our guests about Rachel and how awesome she was! I would 100% recommend her for any occasion – she has true talent and we were so lucky to have her as our wedding photographer!

Rachel shot my daughters wedding and I'm sooo grateful we chose her! Rachel was able to capture the love and sweetness of the day. Rachel didn't miss a detail, every bit of the day was memorialized. I really appreciate that she captured the unposed, natural interaction of the family and guests, they are some of the sweetest picture and things I missed, but she didn't. Hire Rachel, you won't regret it.
