When I was 10-years-old my family took a 6-week trip across Europe. I was given my very own camera for the first time and after filling an entire suitcase with film I knew I was hooked forever. My love of photography brought me to NYU where I studied photojournalism and aesthetic philosophy, focusing on photography's ability to mold the way we see the world.
I shoot reportage style with a romantic eye, looking for great light and beautiful authentic moments. I began my career in fashion photography, working in Avedon's archive and I use my knowledge of fashion photography to art direct when needed. My real passion lies in story telling, and there's no story I love telling more than a love story. I am a hybrid shooter, switching between my Nikon and Contax because I love the beautiful tones of film and the speed and agility of digital.
I love what I do and I will strive to create photographs you love as much as I do. No stiff photos here. Whether it's your wedding day or a family session in the park I want us laughing our way through the whole day. I love to travel (40 countries and counting) and am available to travel for weddings or portraiture anywhere in the world.

The Best of the Best
It is difficult to write this review because I don't even know where to begin. Rebecca was the first person we booked after we selected the venue. I fell in love with her Instagram and was thrilled when she very quickly returned our email letting us know that she was free on our wedding date. Every single interaction that we had with her from that date forward was positive. Rebecca is the BEST photographer, and her pictures speak for themselves, but she's also an amazing person. Leading up to the wedding weekend, Rebecca was always professional, prompt, and super helpful—providing me with recommendations for planners, videographers, etc. and answering all of my many questions. Throughout the wedding weekend, I received so many compliments about her energy. Rebecca was extremely positive and kind, but she knew what shots she wanted and she was willing to give the direction she needed to to get them. Her respectful and assertive attitude put me at ease all weekend because I knew I could completely trust her to capture everything. I could go on and on, but the main takeaway is that my husband and I couldn't be more thrilled with or grateful for Rebecca. You wedding pictures couldn't be in better hands.Sent on 11/11/2019

Rebecca was such a pleasure to work with. She was organized, very quick at responding to any questions and concerns that we had, and made the day run very smoothly. We decided against a videographer so it was extremely important to us to catch the entirety of the day and all the special moments on camera. She exceeded our expectations and we are so grateful to have been able to work with her! We will forever cherish the beautiful and timeless photos throughout our home and hope to work with her again in the near future.Sent on 09/27/2019

Finding the right wedding photographer was one of the most important decisions in our wedding planning process. My now husband and I are truly honored and fortunate to have had the chance to work with Rebecca Yale.
Rebecca is truly an amazing wedding photographer and the first person we signed after booking our venue. She was always so quick and responsive to our emails and offered her advice and suggestions throughout the entire process.
Rebecca was such an asset to our whole wedding experience--organized, calming, super friendly, bubbly, warm and amazingly talented. Her love and passion for what she does is obvious and her dedication to creating the most perfect shots for us from all angles and right types of lighting was truly inspiring. She’s not afraid to take control and direct to get the shots she wants while still being polite and professional to other vendors. During the shoot, Rebecca paid attention to every little detail- helping me adjust my dress and positioning us to get the most complimenting angle. I wanted someone who I knew I could trust to capture our special day, as it was, and all the emotions of our guests and the gorgeous scenery. She helped make the wedding day run smoothly and documented it thoroughly and beautifully. We received 7 edited preview photos at 1AM, 3 hours after our wedding ended!! Her dedication and brilliance set her aside from other photographers and we cannot wait to see the rest of our wedding day gallery.
Thank you Rebecca Yale for capturing the most important day of our lives!Sent on 11/06/2017
