About Rachel Philipson Photography & Design

Let me tell your wedding story.

As a wedding photographer and photojournalist, I move beyond taking traditional photos to capture your wedding story as it unfolds. Part of the story can come out in simple portraits, but I believe the story can be better told with candid, in-the-moment shots.  These are the shots that, years later, will make you smile, laugh, blush, cry happy tears or sit quietly re-living those special moments. These are your personal archives, revealing one of your best stories.

Rachel has been absolutely amazing to work with! My fiance and I contacted her about shooting our wedding a few months ago, and she was extremely responsive, professional, and friendly. We just did our complementary engagement photo session with her last week and it couldn't have been better. We were both a little nervous as neither of us feels super comfortable posing in front of the camera, but Rachel made us feel so comfortable and at ease. The pictures turned out better than I could have ever hoped for, and she had digital proofs to us the very next day and the high definition photos to us within the week. I also think her rates are extremely reasonable, especially given her high quality of work. We went with her "medium" package but added on rehearsal dinner coverage for an extra fee. We can't wait to work with Rachel for our wedding! I would highly recommend her to any couples in the finger lakes region.

Rachel did our engagement and our wedding photos. We had a small simple wedding and Rachel captured so many great moments from the ceremony to the reception. During our wedding photos she handled our large group shots so well and made everyone feel relaxed. It was the fastest my family has taken a good picture in years! Our couple photos are so sweet Rachel is so good at capturing little expressions and glances so that you really see our relationship come out in the pictures.
