    Highly recommend!

    Rachel was great to work with from the minute we first contacted her. She responds very quickly and is very helpful. We had selected an outdoor space at a park. She went and checked this out weeks in advance and let us know that parts of it were closed off, which would have impacted our plans the day of. We switched locations, and she remained flexible as we did so. The day of our wedding, Rachel was so easy to work with. She even hiked up with us a bit to take pictures where we wanted. The pictures turned out beautifully and really captured our day. Thanks for being a part of our special day and for helping to capture our memories for years to come, Rachel!

    Perfectly beautiful photos

    I’m speechless with how wonderful these photos came out. Rachel is a true professional, I gave her a pretty long list of photos I wanted and she got every single one. But my favorite part was all the photos that weren’t planned. She captured the feel of the day perfectly from beginning to end. We are super happy with her work and would definitely use her again if we have the opportunity as well as recommended her to all our friend and family.

    Rachel is wonderful!

    Rachel did the photography for our wedding on June 22, 2019 and she did an amazing job. She is extremely talented and takes a creative approach to telling the story of the wedding through pictures. We received a beautiful flash drive from Rachel with all our pictures on it and, when looked at all the pictures, it felt like our wedding story was flashing in front of our eyes. Simply stunting. Rachel is professional and extremely responsive. She was a joy to work with! My husband and I totally recommend her!
