I'm so thankful Rachel May was able to photograph our wedding! Rachel and her second photographer captured all the details of the day beautifully in a very natural way that made us and the guests feel very comfortable. Rachel was also great at capturing all the family photos we wanted and using everyone's time wisely. The photos turned out as gorgeous as all the samples of her work I had seen before picking her and I know we and our future children will cherish these lovely memories of our happy day for years to come!

Rachel (and her husband and second shooters) are absolutely fantastic! She took both our engagement pictures and our wedding photos, and each and every photo is breathtaking. So many of our family and friends have commented that they are the most beautiful pictures they have ever seen, and all photos come in both color and in black and white (I thought this was wonderful). Rachel got every photo that we wanted and tons of really great candids. She captured a ton of really special moments, really sweet moments, and some totally hysterical moments, too! I would highly suggest Rachel to any bride looking for a wedding photographer. I cannot thank her or her second shooters enough. Thank you, Rachel!!!

Rachel May is an absolutely wonderful photographer and a pleasure to work with. My husband and I had a lot of schedule constraints because we were coming in from out of town and Rachel May was accommodating and gracious at every turn, from shooting our engagement photos on Valentines Day to the wedding on her own anniversary. She has a wonderful eye for lighting and composition, provided a lovely wedding gift set, and sent us sneak peaks of our photos right away! Rachel May is a lot of fun to work with and I would highly recommend her to any bride looking for an organized, talented, and experienced photographer.

I'm always excited to find that I'm booked on a wedding with Rachel! She brings such a calm to our bridal parties and expertly captures their very best moments with grace and finesse.

Rachel May was the photographer for a wedding at which I officiated last year. That wedding appeared in Southern Living Magazine! How often does that happen?! She really does have an eye for balance and color. Evidently the folks at Southern Living recognized that. I can vouch for the fact that she is unobtrusive in her picture taking, which is important for guests and for wedding officiants both! Rachel is a top rate wedding photographer.

Stevenson Ridge is happy to recommend Rachel May Photography for any couple getting married. She is very talented and loves what she does. Her pictures are absolutely beautiful!! Rachel took most of the pictures of our cabins and cottages that can be found on our website. We have known her for years and it has been a wonderful relationship. You will not be disappointed if you hire Rachel!
