A lovely wedding photographer!

Having Rachel as our photographer was the easiest choice - I came across her online portfolio searching for wedding photographers who had done photos at the Como Conservatory and I was immediately taken by her keen eye for details and the soft natural way her photos are enhanced to let the subjects and the background look their best. I was able to reach out from her website and we set up a meeting to make sure we’d be a good fit.

Between her work and her warm personality along with her professionalism, Rachel made every step of the photography process a breeze. I came in not knowing much about what I might need in a photographer for the wedding day and after talking things through and getting to know me and my partner, Rachel was able to recommend a micro wedding session that would capture everything we were hoping for. That’s another super helpful thing about the photography Rachel offers - she has so many different packages and offerings depending on how much or how little coverage you need there’s sure to be a perfect fit.

My partner and I were able to schedule an engagement photo session with Rachel which allowed us to get to know each other better before the wedding day and firm up the kinds of photos we wanted for the wedding day as well. Rachel’s experience and knowledge of our venue at Como Conservatory allowed for the perfect shots to be taken easily and left little for us to worry about. She’s well versed at making everyone smile from giggly little kids to shy grandparents and her ability to organize group photos is unparalleled. From posed photos to candid shots, she captured it all with ease.

Rachel’s photos translate the happiness of our day into something tangible and permanent and we couldn’t be happier having her as part of the process. She’s professional, affordable, and a lovely person to share our special day with.

You will not regret!!!

Wow. I am so happy we chose Rachel as our photographer for both our wedding day photography and engagement shoot. She almost doubles as a wedding day coordinator because she is so knowledgeable about wedding day flow. She also dealt with family and wedding party members (and 2 dogs) of all ages and attention levels with cool and calm demeanor and great sense of humor. Her pre-wedding communication was also quite helpful and organized with a detailed wedding shot list and suggested timeline of photos. I highly recommend Rachel for your wedding and engagement photos - you will NOT be disappointed!

Incredible

I cannot begin to describe how incredible it was to work with Rachel. We first met and we went through expectations, hopes, and goals for photography on my wedding day. She was very communicative throughout the whole process and she was truly a godsend on my actual wedding day. She was incredibly efficient, so sweet, so supportive, and there for me at every turn during my wedding. The previews were amazing and so quick and we just got the rest of the photos and they're stunning. I am so happy that we worked with Rachel and highly suggest you do the same!!
