Literally the best!
I cannot begin to explain how amazing Rachel is, as a photographer and as a person. We are SO lucky to have had her as our wedding photographer. Our photos are stunningly beautiful, so beautiful it makes me want to cry. It’s like something out of a fairytale.
Rachel has a superior eye for detail. Every single photo she takes is amazing. We are going to have a hard time choosing which photos to frame.
She is a JOY and one of THE MOST kind and thoughtful person ever! Throughout the day of my wedding, from getting ready until the end, she would ask me if I was doing ok. She genuinely cares. I was basically running on fumes and I was deeply touched by Rachel’s genuine concern for me. That is who she is as a person; sweet, kind, and caring.
We had a large wedding party and Rachel was such a rockstar at getting everyone in place for photos. I know it must have been challenging, but Rachel handled it like the pro she is.
Rachel made my husband and I feel super comfortable in front of the camera. She gave us direction and feedback. It was fun!
We are extremely grateful and so happy that Rachel was our wedding photographer. We adore her and are fans for life! We HIGHLY recommend her!Sent on 12/14/2019

The very best!
When it comes to beautiful photography, there are so many options in the Seattle area! Of course, I fell in love with Rachel's work right away, but there were a few (a lot) of other things that set her apart from the rest.
Flexible Contract - there were so many options with booking! We could choose from additional time, a second shooter, engagement pictures, etc...We even ended up adding a second engagement session because we were so happy with the first round! Rachel knows so many great locations for winter and summer, and isn't afraid to hike through the snow to get the perfect shot.
Speed - We were a bit behind schedule on wedding day, and Rachel didn't bat an eye. All of our wedding party commented on how organized she was and how quickly she got through the pictures, and captured everything we wanted and more! When we got our pictures back, I was so surprised by all the family portraits that had been taken. Everyone was so happy to have pictures with their individual families, and everyone ended up using these for Christmas cards!
Personality - Something I didn't realize is that you spend your whole day with your photographer, and it's super important it is a person that you like! After our first meeting, my husband said she was just like my best friend, so it's no wonder we ended up absolutely loving her! Rachel is funny, smart, and so genuine, you can't help but be yourself in front of her.
Professionalism - Rachel captured some of our most emotional, and truthfully, private moments, and navigated it all so seamlessly. I never felt uncomfortable and I was honestly so thankful that she was with us on our wedding day! I didn't expect to have such a strong feeling of trust with our photographer, and I didn't know how important that trust was.
Other highlights include that she somehow found an actual meadow on the beach for us to take couple portraits, and during our snowy engagement session she let our dog wear her coat! Without doubt, working with Rachel is as good as it can possibly get.Sent on 03/10/2020

Rachel has been such an amazing person to work with! She was so easy to talk to and comfortable to be around. She was great at directing us if we didn’t know how to pose (because posing can be awkward) and made us feel right at home. Also, she takes amazing photographs with a super FAST turn around time! We received a sneak peak like the next day for our engagement photos and the rest of our engagement pictures in like a week! When our wedding day came around, within 2 days we had tons of pictures from our wedding day to tide us over until she gave us the rest in about a month! On the day of, she was prompt, professional, and so kind. She reminded us to drink water and made us laugh so much and took all the pictures we requested. If you want whimsical and romantic photos, look no further! Our wedding day truly would have been incomplete without her! You wouldn’t go wrong picking Rachel Howerton as your photographer! I’m already thinking about booking her for an anniversary session. :DSent on 09/27/2019
