Where do I even begin?!? I told Rachel I wanted a “simple” beach wedding but little did she know..... I was that Bride who already had a power point with all my wedding details......Rachel E. Ligon ... Amazing. Fabulous. Unique. PERFECT. A true one of a kind sweetheart of a photographer who not only knows her business but makes choosing her to capture our destination Fort Zachary Taylor Key West wedding was nothing short of fairy tale dream come true! Rachel made me feel so comfortable from the minute we spoke on the phone to all our subsequent emails and texts prior to our Big Day!! I can’t truly express how awesome our pictures came out but she clearly captured every special moment and all the “quirks” every one in our wedding party had. Not only did she capture me in such gorgeous images as well as my handsome groom...she took each person and made them shine which was important to me!! She captured everything I wanted and then some!! Now every time I look at our wedding pictures it brings me back to THAT day and exactly HOW I felt at every moment!! Thank you for making everyone so comfortable as if you were our dearest friend and now ..... you will always be a part of our family!! Truly if you don’t use Rachel, you will really be missing out!! Thank you again for capturing our fairytale dream Key West Wedding!! Love & Kisses!!
From the start, Rachel went above and beyond my expectations. She really listened to my back story and you could see it in the way she shot her pictures. She made a real connection with my guests and made everyone feel at ease. During the wedding planning process, she was my go to person, even if my questions didn't relate to photography. She was extremely professional, punctual, and put her heart and soul into her work. She has packages that work with every price range, but regardless of which package you choose, you are guaranteed to have some of the best professional photography out there! I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend her!
My husband and I met Rachel about a year and a half before our wedding. We instantly liked her and her work however we wouldn't know what a great pick she would be until our wedding.
We were married 10/7 just a week after Key West opened from the devastation of Irma. Rachel was in contact with us the entire time we waited for updates to hear if our wedding was still going to happen. She contacted our other vendors, helped coordinate and really went above and beyond. Not only did we love her photos but our wedding wouldn't have been the same with out her and her assistant Jess. Thank you again for everything!
I could not be happier with our wedding photos or the experience of working with Rachel. She thought of everything, and I’m convinced she and Jessica would have done just about anything to make our day special. I would highly recommend them for a wedding or any occasion! The investment was well worth it!
Rachel is the best! I would recommend her to anyone! Our pictures turned out more beautiful than I could ever have imagined!
Choosing Rachel E Ligon as our photographer was one the best decisions we made in the entire planning process of our Key West Wedding.
Rachel came to us highly recommended by our venue and after talking to her we knew she would be perfect for us. She was responsive, professional and willing to work with us to create a photo package that fit exactly what we wanted.
Her photos are beautiful! She certainly knows and takes pride in her work!
Everyone has raved about our photos and I treasure them.
Rachel was and absolute joy to work with on all levels.
Rachel and Jessica did an awesome job at our wedding on November 19, 2016 at Marriott Beachside in Key West!!! I can't say enough good things about how gorgeous our wedding pictures are. In the beginning of choosing Rachel to be our photographer, she was extremely professional, prompt, and organized. She is truly talented and you can trust that you are going to have great pictures that will last a lifetime. Not only is she talented, it is obvious that she loves and takes pride in her work, which any client appreciates. We also received our online album very quickly to be able to order pictures through her printing service in time for Christmas gifts for family. She is a full service photographer, and will do additional edits as needed to a smaller album of our favorites. I enjoyed working with Rachel through the process of planning and on wedding day. Rachel is a great person with so many artistic talents and a big personality! Definitely fun to work with! Thank you Rachel and Jessica for being apart of our special day and giving us so many wonderful pictures!!! :)
We had a destination wedding in Key West this past October and hired Rachel as our photographer. First of all, she's amazingly cool...great vibes, very happy and full of artistic energy! We noticed this immediately upon speaking with her before we hired her... After meeting her a few days before our wedding, our initial feeling was confirmed!
Rachel knows Key West thoroughly and Key West knows Rachel! As we went around the town for photos on our wedding day, everywhere we went, someone knew her! She knows where to go for the best photos! Take her advice! Throughout our wedding day, she was with us and captured our entire day and nite.
We just got our final pictures back and they are fantastic! Throughout the entire process from initially speaking with her regarding her services to after she delivered our final pictures she's been incredibly professional! She's always immediately responsive to emails and / or voicemails.
We spoke with several photographers in the Keys and we'd hire Rachel over them all again! She's awesome! The scary part of having a destination wedding is making the right choices on your vendors. You have decisions to make and the right choice for a photographer is essential to your wedding memories. She went above and beyond our expectations!
Ps: she also pays attention to details like how we met. She surprised us the day of our wedding with sushi roll cupcakes (Angie and I met and got engaged at our favorite sushi restaurant in NJ).
Rachel was fantastic! She is extremely talented and her easy going manner and friendly personality make everyone feel comfortable. I'm so glad that she was able to photograph our wedding. Highly recommend!
Rachel was simply awesome! Our experience with her couldn't have been better. Her fun and energetic personality meshed well with our wedding party and her on-the-fly photography skills provided some beautiful and unique memories. Our "Around Key West" session was a blast and she knows exactly where to go for the best shots. She even picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel! Rachel was not pushy in any way and didn't impede the festivities whatsoever. After the wedding, her follow-up and prompt delivery of the photos was fantastic. Her professional services and attention to detail were top notch. We couldn't speak more highly of Rachel and most definitely recommend her to anyone getting married in the Keys. We know we'll always have a friend in Key West!
Rachel & Jess were amazing on my wedding day. They coordinated all the wedding party and first look photos seamlessly, and made us all feel at ease. The pictures exceeded our expectations. Rachel really listens to what you want and uses her creativity to make the photos absolutely magical. We would definitely work with them again.
Rachel's and Jess were fantastic! Professional but at the same time laid back and fun. They captured amazing photographs throughout our wedding and reception. The quality of the photographs is truly exceptional ! Thank you Rachel and Jess for being an integral part of our day! It would be my honor to highly recommend you guys for anyone looking to capture those special moments !
Rachel & her team were excellent and went above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect. We are so pleased with the photography but her winning personality is icing on the cake. Excellent communication, very clear and honest no selling gimmicks ever. Felt like your best friend was there taking photos of you. You would be lucky to have Rachel capture your special event!
Rachel was amazing from start to finish. She was very professional, flexible when working with us since we lived 5 states away, and I cant say enough about how well she captured our wedding. We are beyond thrilled to have such beautiful pictures to remind us of our Key West Wedding!!!
Rachel is a top rate photographer. We really appreciated the way she organized all the shots on the wedding day. She had us in all the right places with the perfect light. The getting ready and first look shots transitioned smoothly to the ceremony and her organization really melted away any stress or anxiety we had. We also did her around Key West package which was great because she knows the best spots on the island for pictures. We just got a sneak peak of our pictures and they look awesome!
Rachel was a wonderful photographer!! I could not have had a better experience. As an out of town bride, I was very concerned about finding reliable vendors. Rachel was %100 reliable and went above and beyond to provide me with all necessary information. Before, during and after I felt confident I made a great choice in a photographer. She was very helpful on the wedding day, and made sure we received all the photos we wanted. She was professional, and on time. Not to mention the photos are great! Any changes or request I had, she helped me with. I would highly recommend this vendor!
Rachel is awesome. The pictures were stunning. She is so easy to work with and awesome with kids. My grandsons adored her.
Rachel is a true professional she handled everything with ease or at least she made it look easy. I can not find the words for how wonderful Rachel made our day from our first look photos to our traipsing around Key West for the perfect shots at the perfect time. She captured our day beautifully and I can not speak more highly of her. You will not be disappointed. It is with a great honor that I recommend Rachel to you.
She is phenomenal.
OMG!!! Working with Rachel this past weekend was one of the best experiences of me and my wife Trudy's lives. She was so professional, accommodating, and went above and beyond our expectations. To put it simply: she was phenomenal!!!
Rachel is amazing! She is calm, collected, friendly and professional! She kept the flow of our crazy wedding together seamlessly. Even climbing on a ladder to get a shot of everyone together. I hope that we can use her again for our anniversary photos someday! Seriously, don't look anywhere else - just book her!
Rachel is a fantastic photographer! My wedding photos were better than I expected. We were suppose to have a beach wedding on Sunset Key. We ended up getting married in the garden instead of the beach because the wind was so bad that day. However, my photos were amazing. Rachel used the wind to our advantage! I have really great pictures of my dress blowing in the wind. I was really happy with Rachel she is very friendly and is exceptional at what she does. If I have another event in the Keys, I will be using her for photography.
I booked Rachel for our wedding photography based solely off one phone conversation and the pictures of previous weddings on her website (destination wedding). I was nervous, but once we met with her during our planning trip, all nerves were gone! She went above any and all expectations we had for a photographer. I had a long list of "special" photos I wanted taken, and she made sure she got all of them! I received my full digital album this morning and am absolutely thrilled with every picture.
Prompt, patient, kind, everything you want in a wedding day photographer, Rachel is. THANK YOU AGAIN!!!!
Where do I even begin? Rachel is an absolute gem. Great photography was a priority for our wedding, and from our first consultation, we totally clicked, and I knew she was the obvious choice. With over 10 years of experience here in Key West, she is so knowledgable. Rachel also did our unique engagement shoot, and since my husband and I had met at Halloween party, she got really creative capturing our adventurous spirits at Fort Zach as we wore our original Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider costumes! Leading up to the big day, she was incredibly helpful when planning the schedule, working hand-in-hand with our coordinator, Nika. On the day of the wedding, Rachel jumped in, starting with photos of our rings, my dress, and everyone getting ready. She has a calm and unobtrusive presence that allowed for natural moments to unfold. During the family and wedding party photos, she gave very savvy directions to make sure they turned out great. And at the wedding and reception, she was like a ninja, capturing every precious moment and gracefully dodging the amateur photographers among our guests. During the cake cutting, she even patiently explained to us how to do it - I was so giddy I could barely think straight! So other than being an ultra professional, she is incredibly kind. Needless to say, our wedding photos turned out AMAZING!!! Every single shot is beautiful, inspired, and deeply meaningful. We couldn't be happier with these treasures to help us relive the best day of our lives, and we can't thank Rachel enough!!!
Rachel is absolutely outstanding! I initially thought that posing for photos was going to be very awkward and in fact I found just the opposite working with her, she made us both feel extremely comfortable and confident, like we were made to model! I cannot say enough amazing things about how personable, punctual, professional, confident, and just plain exuberant she is! She is a pleasure to work with and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who is looking for a dependable and AMAZING photographer! Oh...and her photos are great too! ;)
First let me say Thank Goodness for Rachel! She was amazing from start to finish! When Jamie and I started looking for a wedding photographer in Key West, we had NO IDEA how lucky we were to of signed with her!
Rachel was always available for questions via phone or email. She was even kind enough to recommend places for our reception. Which were all fantastic by the way! She knew the locations like the back of her hand! Which, in turn allowed her to get some truly breathtaking pictures!
Also, Rachel worked flawlessly with our entire wedding party! We all felt so relaxed with her, we hardly noticed her weaving about, snapping shots of friends and family. Which was every important to my husband and I. Now we have these beautiful pictures of us having fun, being silly, and becoming a family all in the same day.
There are lots of people who can take pictures. However, it takes a rare talent to tell a story, and capture all those amazing moments like Rachel did for us.
Rachel E Ligon is not just a photographer; she is a storyteller and memory keeper. If you want the best then you have found it with Rachel.
Rachel was fantastic to work with! I planned my wedding from New York and she was very helpful and had great insight on Key West and the wedding Industry. I screened all the photographers and I thought she was the most professional. approachable, friendly and scinciere. She was super organized which made everything so easy with the long distance planning.
When I arrived to key west I met with her to go over everything and I knew then and there that I made the best choice in a photographer. Not only did my I fall in love with her my husband (finance at the time) was very impressed and he's a worse critic then myself.
I warned Rachel of the different personalities in my bridal party and she took control of everyone like a true leader.
I honestly felt very comfortable with her, as did my entire bridal party and guests.
She had a few surprises up her sleeve like some poloroids and sparklers, which I didn't expect at all. It was a nice touch to the evening.
After the wedding she sent a sneak peek which was phenomenal and it 100 percent got me so excited to see all of the photos. When I received all of my photos there were so many moments she picked up that brought me and my husband right back to that day!
Picking A photographer is a very important part of wedding planning because after all said and done what you have left is threse lovely visuals that will bring you back to those amazing moments. There is only one photographer in Key West that I would recommend to anybody and that is Rachel Ligon!!! She is by far an incredible photographer, professional and person!
