About

On WeddingWire since 2021

Rachel Edwards Photo, is a wedding photographer based in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Hey I'm Rachel, a Hoosier based wedding & elopement photographer that values your party over poses.

Your love should be celebrated, and if you are looking to have a good time while getting your dream photos, then you are in the right spot.

My approach to photography is a guided experience that represents who you and your partner are. I call it a plandid approach. With some directions and prompts, I guide my clients to get the shots they want, while also taking the responsibility off of them to come up with what to do. The other part of my approach is documentary- I photograph moments as they are without any prompt or notice, think of your ceremony or you talking to a loved one- I stand back and just capture the moment while it is happening. It鈥檚 a little bit of both that make up a wedding day.

You鈥檙e in for a little R & R, the Rachel Ruth Experience

Relax: You are in good hands. With over 5 years of wedding experience, I have been through it all. I am here for you now, the wedding, and all the things after the big day. There is no such thing as a friend I haven鈥檛 met and I am here to be by your side while capturing authentic moments that will be cherished for generations to come.

Recreation: My goal for you is to enjoy your day. That seems almost obvious, but there can be a lot of pressure to have a perfect wedding day. As your wedding photographer, I will do anything and everything to make sure you are comfortable, confident, and true to who you two are.

    Best decision ever

    Hiring Rachel was easily the BEST decision we made for our wedding. You spend so much time on your wedding day with your photographer it is really important to pick someone you can hang out with and Rachel is so fun and easy going we had so much fun with her.

    Her photos are amazing and natural. She does a lot of fun and unique poses but also captures ALL OF the candid moments. My husband and I are not photogenic people or people that choose to takes photos but you'd never be able to tell from our engagement and wedding photos. She also knew this going into our wedding day and made the posed photo process go as quick as possible while still getting all the shots I wanted. Getting previews a few days after your wedding is awesome and not something all photographers will do. Her delivery time for the full package was also good. It was Rachels first time at our wedding and ceremony venue . She went over to the venue a bit before us and you'd never know she hadn't shot there before.

    Just as important as her photos and her personality she really cares about her couples and their WHOLE wedding day. Looking back on my day and planning Rachel did several things for us that she really didn't have to but truly helped our day be perfect! (bringing out dance floor props, helping with our timeline, drying my flowers when I was sick of getting them out of the vase).

    Photographer Gold

    Rachel was the perfect mix of professional and personal! We had her shoot both our engagement and wedding photos, so we got to know her over time. She is so helpful at coordinating poses and moving you to get amazing shots! She is so fun, as well, and that only helps you feel confident and comfy when posing!!

    The Easiest Decision we made

    Rachel was the best decision ever. Our family, bridal party, and us can't stop talking about her! During her whole process, we never felt any pressure from her, just that we had been friends for years- which is so important for your wedding photographer. She was so timely too with our photos compared to friends getting married around the same time. The cherry on top was the beautiful work she gave us! 10/10 we were even in west Michigan!

    Phenomenal

    Working with Rachel was easily one of the best parts of our wedding planning process and wedding day. She listened to us and helped us get the photos I wanted that I couldn't even articulate or describe. She made everything incredibly easy and smooth, offering advice on everything from pictures to timeline to how to deal with the venue coordinator that I didn't care for. And finally, the photos we got from her are stunning. I am obsessed with all of them. She 100% captured the beauty and emotion of the day from start to finish. I cannot recommend her enough, and I cannot explain how thrilled I was through the whole process with her. Would choose her 10000x over, and I fully plan to continue using her for any photo needs we have in the future.

    Courthouse Wedding made even more easy!

    Rachel was absolutely fantastic! We had a hard time trying to find someone who we thought could make us (an extremely hard couple to make look photogenic from past experiences). We saw Rachel鈥檚 work through recommendations and knew we would be a great fit. She made sure we got all the views we wanted and made our courthouse wedding look fantastic. Cannot recommend enough!

    Wonderful Photographer!

    I absolutely loved working with Rachel! I was so impressed by the way that she kindly directed the shots she wanted in an approachable way. Rachel has a real gift of getting the job done while allowing for candid moments to happen. It felt like she naturally fit in with our group and had a comfortable presence. Not only did she deliver amazing photos of us, but we got some great pictures that showed off our venue, families mingling, and couples on the dance floor. She captured memories instead of just pictures, and for that we are thankful!

    Rachel is amazing

    Rachel is AMAZING. Seriously, hire her!

    My husband & I are both a little uncomfortable in front of cameras, but we still wanted to have some nice photos of our big day. After one phone call with Rachel, we instantly felt so much more comfortable about the whole process. By the time we were done with our engagement photos, all of our photo nerves were gone!

    Rachel is easygoing, incredibly professional, super organized, and is a GREAT communicator. She is a truly wonderful person to work with.

    Oh, and we are absolutely in LOVE with our wedding photos. We can鈥檛 recommend Rachel enough!

    Exactly who you want for your photographer

    Rachel was exactly who we wanted for our wedding photographer! She made us feel so comfortable with her and at the same time telling us where to be and how to pose. The photos are absolutely stunning works of art- in the moment you can't tell, but looking at them I can see her vision with how she balanced groups by height or why she chose a specific background. She worked hard to get us tons of previews early the morning after the wedding! On Christmas Eve! Rachel is such a fun and nice person, we would have loved her presence at our wedding even if she weren't our photographer. She clearly loves her job and is so good at it. I can't recommend her enough. I am so so grateful to have her beautiful photos to remember our day by.

    Love love love

    Rachel creates the most AMAZING experience. She was super punctual, super easy to work with, and as a bonus is pretty hilarious too. Her natural photography style matched our fall wedding aesthetic perfectly and I could not have asked for anything better! I would HIGHLY recommend her to any couple looking for a wedding photographer who will 100% care about you and work to create the perfect day for you.

    Look no further

    After having maternity, and family pictures done by Rachel I honestly want to get married again just to have her shoot my wedding. Your photographer should feel like a friend, someone your comfortable with and Rachel is all of that and more. You will be laughing your BUTTS off and having the time of your life on the most special day of your life. Rachel feels like a family friend and all of the pictures she captures are real genuine smiles and good times. Seriously, just book her now!

    Rachel was amazing!

    From the time we hired her to the end of the wedding, Rachel was a helpful, calming presence for us. She was so easy to get along with and talk to when planning all of our sessions. She was a fantastic listener and always put our wants first while at the same time offering helpful suggestions when we weren鈥檛 sure what to do. When it came time to take the actual pictures, Rachel made it a really easy process. For both the engagement and wedding sessions, we went to spots we had planned to go to, but she was able to find spots within the location that were unplanned but looked great in the moment. She made it incredibly easy to be the subject of all of these photos, giving easy cues and instruction to cut through the awkward tension of us never having professional photos taken before. On the day of the wedding, she was great at staying on schedule without ever making it feel like we were rushing through things. Through all of this though, what stood out the most was how friendly she was. Every step of the way, Rachel was incredibly easy to talk to, would crack jokes, reassure us that things were fine, and calmed us down through the stress that comes on your wedding day. We can鈥檛 recommend hiring her enough and would be happy to work with her again.

    Best Decision Ever

    WOW Rachel was incredible! I knew the day I met her that she was going to be the perfect photographer for us and I was not wrong! Both my husband and I loved her personality in general, which continued to be a highlight on the big day. She was super professional and got stuff done without us feeling pressured in any way. She really focused on capturing more staged yet candid photos for more natural poses, which was just way more comfortable for us as well. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Rachel as a photographer as well as a person.
