A wonderful experience with a photographer who cares
Rebecca was an absolute dream to work with for our wedding 4/27/19. From our first contact, it was clear that she was invested in our wedding vision and would work with us to make it happen. From our engagement shoot that she timed to coincide with the beautiful cherry blossom bloom through our wedding day photos on the roof of the Loews, Rebecca was on top of everything. She worked with us to create our day-of timeline and helped keep us on track--in fact, we stayed ahead of schedule!Sent on 03/19/2020
Not only was Rebecca enthusiastic, organized, and so lovely to work with, but of course, her photographs were absolutely beautiful. We're so, so grateful for the work she put in during our wedding experience, and couldn't recommend her more highly.

Couldn't recommend more!
I could not recommend Rebecca more. A lot of the world of wedding planning is angst inducing, but from the first phone call with Rebecca, my nerves were calmed.
Initial phone call - Rebecca was very upfront about everything. She is willing to work with you on budget, services, and timeline. I could immediately tell she is passionate about her work and the enthusiasm definitely is contagious! I came away from the call very excited about working together.
Leading up to the wedding - She's done this a lot and knows Philly well. She recommended several beautiful locations near our venue and had ideas ready for how to get there and what to do if the weather was bad. She really listened to what was important to us, and had a plan ready to make sure she was going to be taking pictures of that.
The wedding day - She was absolutely amazing. She not only had lists already made up of who take pictures of, but she was invaluable in making sure those pictures actually happened. She's forceful enough to make sure your brother isn't goofing off on pictures and keeps your dad from wandering off. You're going to be spending a lot of the day with her, and you will not be sorry about that at all.
The pictures - What initially drew me to Rebecca was how candid her pictures look, but also how GOOD everyone looked in them. I don't always enjoy taking pictures, but I love the pictures she gave me. I think her body of work speaks for itself and if you spend 2 minutes on her website, you'll see how good she is.
After the wedding - Rebecca got us the pictures quick and was always responsive. We opted to buy a photo album through her. Initially I wasn't sure if I wanted to, but I'm so glad I did. I would say always trust anything she recommends - she's right and you should do it.
Again - I could not recommend Rebecca more, she was one of the easiest, most professional vendors we worked with through our entire wedding.Sent on 03/19/2020

Beautiful photos and lovely to work with!
Rebecca was wonderful to work with! My husband and I had a short engagement, and we found her early in the process. She is extremely organized, and we felt like all of her expertise made all the difference in our quick wedding planning! She was very through in all the in person and phone meetings we had with her, and helped us make sure that we would get all the shots we wanted while leaving plenty of time for the candids that made us love her photos in the first place! She also did our engagement shoot, which was a great way to get to know her and prepare for being photographed on the wedding day. We feel like she is very affordable for her level of talent :) On the day of, I felt so grateful to have chosen her! The bridal party and I arrived to the venue a little late, but Rebecca and her assistant were true professionals and unfazed. She kept our photo timeline running smoothly, and magically somehow got us running back on time while getting every photo we wanted! During the reception, she seemed to have this ability to always be in seemingly multiple places at once to get all the best shots. All of my guests commented on how talented she was, and my husband and I could not agree more! We love the quality of the photos we got, and feel so lucky to get to have such beautiful images to help us re-live our wedding day whenever we want.Sent on 02/17/2020

In Love with Our Photos
I had seen Rebecca's work featured in the Inquirer's "Love" section many times and loved her "editorial style." Looking at our wedding photos, I feel like they could be in a bridal magazine! The photos Rebecca took are so beautiful and she was able to capture so many candid moments with my friends and family, including the first time my husband met a close friend of mine with a big hug. Rebecca was easy to work with throughout the whole process and made sure that we got all the shots on our list. She also set up an engagement shoot for us, which helped us get comfortable with being photographed and produced some really lovely photos that we used for engagement announcement. I would definitely use Rebecca again, she also worked within our budget, which was much appreciated.Sent on 11/07/2019

Great work, easy to work with
Working with Rebecca was such a pleasure. She is very organized and she sits down with you and creates a timeline for the day of the wedding so that you know what to expect and how much time is allotted for each photo shoot. She was able to take all of the requests that my parents threw at her for group photos and get them done before we even got to the entrees which left her plenty of time for the candid photos that we love! We just got our wedding photos and they are beyond our expectations. Amazing work.Sent on 10/08/2019

Wonderful experience with Rebecca Barger
Rebecca was so wonderful to work with, so diligent, hard working, and professional, and also so thoughtful to make sure our engagement photos and wedding day photos were exactly what we had envisioned. I had sent Rebecca many photos in advance of pictures I wanted to re-create (some even a little far fetched!) and she did her very best to re-create every one and made sure we were happy with every one (which we always were!) Our photo sessions were fun, easy, and calm. Our wedding album was absolutely beautiful & it was so wonderful to be able to re-live our special day. It even made me cry! I love that I have all of these beautiful photos to keep forever. Photography was one thing that was very important to me and I'm so glad we searched near & far until we came across Rebecca!Sent on 03/26/2020

Rebecca is the BEST!!
Rebecca was the photographer for my younger sister’s wedding back in 2017 – which she did a phenomenal job! So when the time came that I got engaged in the summer of 2018, Rebecca was at the top of my list! When I called Rebecca right away, it was also so wonderful to hear a familiar voice that made me feel comfortable. Something I found to be so important when looking for a photographer - a person to be alongside for our wedding day to capture so many personal and special moments. When she was available, it really was a no brainer.
Rebecca was very organized and one of the easiest of all our wedding vendors to work with. I always had complete confidence she was on top of things. When planning a wedding with lots of vendors, she was one I knew I did not need to worry about! My husband and I had also just relocated to northern NJ and I had started a new job so she was super flexible speaking with us in the evenings during the week.
When wedding day came, Rebecca and her assistant Lori were incredible – and also a lot of fun and kept us laughing! They helped to keep to the timeline discussed prior to the wedding (this was SO important since the day is so crazy and my husband/family and I were always being pulled in so many directions so it was comforting to know Rebecca was there to keep everyone on track!!) She made sure to get the images we had hoped for and also some beautiful candid moments. Rebecca is so creative and has an amazing eye to capture stunning photos. When my husband and I received the photos after the wedding, it was as if we were able to relive what was the best day of our lives perfectly though them. There were the photos that told the story along with the beautifully artistic and also candid photos. When it came time to create the album, Rebecca did an incredible job that blew us away! When we had a hard time narrowing down our photos (since we loved so many!), she was flexible allowing us to add in additional photos. Rebecca is the BEST!!Sent on 09/29/2019
Rebecca Barger Photography's reply:Heather, thank you SO much for this fantastic summary of what it's like to work with us. Successfully capturing a couple's special day, relies on planning ahead of time. Since we had already photographed your sister's wedding, we already knew your family, and yes, just like old friends! The trust that I built with your sister, is already there with your family... Y'all were such a joy to work with! -- It's always my goal for you and your husband to LOVE way too many photos and have trouble narrowing down, it means I've done my job well. Thanks so much! ~Rebecca Barger

Above and Beyond Photographs!
Rebecca was the photographer for my close friend's wedding back in 2017. I was in the bridal party and found Rebecca easy to work with and she gave great direction when needed. Her pictures are priceless and phenomenal. When it came time to pick a photographer for our wedding, I remembered my friend's wedding album and pictures and contacted Rebecca. The pictures Rebecca and her assistant Lori took were AMAZING. She exceeded my expectations with all of the small details and candid moments. Lori was huge help with my train and making sure it was laid out properly for the best photos. They both got some candid gems of my husband and I and our pup! Rebecca and Lori captured so many things my husband and I missed as we were getting pulled in a million different directions. The organization, timeline planning, attention to detail- Rebecca knows what she is doing!!Sent on 08/29/2019
Rebecca Barger Photography's reply:Such a beautiful June wedding you had Kristine! You two and your pup were such a pleasure to work with. I love to capture things the couple doesn't see... Wedding album design is a collaboration of my design experience and the couple, you always get final say on the album, of course! Rebecca Barger Photography is built on personal referrals, like your friends at their Laurita Winery wedding. That sweet crying picture of you is likely one of the sweetest bride crying photos I've ever taken. Thank YOU, Kristine + hubs for being such a great couple to work with. Best Wishes Always! ~Rebecca Barger

Amazing photographer and person
With the barrage of products and services online these days, it was oddly difficult to find ways of ensuring my wedding would be special. Rebecca Barger was definitely one of the reasons my wedding was so special. Her genuine and down-to-earth personality made it easy and fun to work with her. She captured memorable moments throughout the day as well as getting the must-have portraits and family photos. She knew the timeline of the wedding day better than anyone. I didn’t feel like just another bride or this just another wedding. Thank you Rebecca for everything you have done to help make everlasting beautiful memories!Sent on 04/24/2019

Rebecca Barger was our dream photographer!
REBECCA BARGER PHOTOGRAPHY! I’m about to brag about Rebecca 😀
We got married at the Knowlton Mansion in Philadelphia on November 2nd, 2018 and she truly captured our dream pictures! Rebecca was extremely thoughtful throughout the whole process-she definitely wanted to make sure she got the settings and style that would make my husband and I happy. She really took the time to communicate with us leading up to the wedding, the wedding day and we still keep in touch! From the moment we met with Rebecca-we knew she was the one. I love how she didn’t make us pose-she caught us in our special moments throughout the night and now we can look back at the pictures from the wedding day and remember those moments. She seriously captured every photo opportunity possible and we are SO happy we went with her. If you’re looking for a photographer for any special occasion and want a thorough and professional one, Rebecca is the one! Thank you Rebecca for making our day so special! We love you!

Rebecca Barger is a top notch photographer. Her quirky personality makes her really fun to work with. There’s nothing she’s isn’t willing to try! As far as her work she is organized, professional, and provides high quality images. We used her both for our engagement photos at Wissahickon Park and our wedding at Morris Arboretum.Sent on 04/25/2019

Exactly What We Were Looking For and More
Choosing a photographer was easily the most difficult decision in planning our wedding. Harder than choosing a dress, if you ask me! We live in an image-centric world, and every photographer has their own style, plus there are so many price points. We chose Rebecca for her timeless but creative style, extensive experience, ability to capture great candids, and professionalism. What a great decision!Sent on 11/25/2018
Rebecca and a second photographer caught all the good stuff, and our photos are beautiful. I was a bridesmaid a lot of times before I got married, and I've been there when photographers miss moments, fail to tell a bride to lower her bouquet or turn just a little this way or that, or worst of all, mess up on timing (e.g. outdoor photos before the ceremony didn't happy when the photographer failed to account for guests rolling in). Those details matter, and Rebecca knows that. She goes above and beyond to deliver great service and results.
Importantly, Rebecca's depth of experience in the Philadelphia area means she has probably already worked with your venue (and knows it and its good spots in and out) and your other professionals. She knows how to communicate and cooperate with the others and keep you on a schedule worked out well in advance of the day. This is SO important. My wedding day ran smoothly, and I know it was not magic or great planning on my part. It is because we chose incredible professionals, like Rebecca.
In short, I cannot recommend Rebecca highly enough! Her services were slightly above our original budget, but adjusting our budget to accommodate photos we are proud to share and that we'll cherish all our lives was beyond worth it. Notably, everything you should want is included in her packages, so there are no hitches or additional charge surprises. I also recommend scheduling an engagement session with Rebecca, so you can get to know each other, you will have an idea what to expect, and she can gain an understanding of how to best photograph and work with you. Plus, you'll have more gorgeous photos of such a special time in your life.

Rebecca is an amazing photographer!!! We had our wedding on Feb. 3rd 2017. It was super cold but we got amazing photographs. She works with you to build a timeline for the day so that no one gets left out of photographs and so that she can capture every single moment. Her career background is also amazing so, you won't go wrong by hiring Rebecca as your photographer.Sent on 02/18/2017

We were so fortunate to have Rebecca and Steve (second photographer) capture the special moments of our wedding day. Starting with our first phone call I could tell that Rebecca was professional, energetic, at ease working with wedding couples, and has a genuine love for photography. Rebecca is uniquely talented at her profession - check out her blog and you'll see what I mean. Every wedding is a beautiful photo-story.
Working with her has been a pleasure - she's so organized and visionary. Two weeks before our wedding day she advised me to consider a rain day plan and to purchase red galoshes and clear umbrellas. Sure enough it was drizzling on our day but our pictures with the props are among our favorites. We're now in the process of putting together our album and we have so many incredible shots to choose from. We highly recommend Rebecca without hesitation.
Melissa · Married on 07/30/2016
Rebecca is a true artist. She is incredibly detail oriented and professional. She works with you in depth on a clearly defined timeline, and ensures that everyone sticks to that timing on the wedding day in order to capture every special moment. We first met Rebecca for our engagement photos about a year before our wedding, and were impressed with her creativity. She turned a standard tree backdrop into something so beautiful all with her talent behind the camera. When it came to the wedding, her creativity and artistry was even more apparent. She is not shy to give suggestions, so take our advice and listen to her, she is an expert and really knows how to bring out the best in her images. We are so impressed by her work, her attention to detail and her communication. We knew where she was in the process every step of the way which gave us such a great comfort that our pictures were being edited, and our album was being designed. Her second photographer Phil was excellent as well. I highly recommend Rebecca to any future bride/groom, we absolutely love our images and our album.Sent on 11/07/2016

From the moment we saw a canvas of one of Rebecca's photographs at our venue, I could not wait to meet with her. It did not take long into our first meeting with her to know we wanted to have Rebecca there with us to capture our wedding day on camera. From the very beginning of the planning process, Rebecca made time for many meetings in person and by phone to help us think about the details and timeline for the day. She was so thorough and made an extra effort to know all of the interesting photo locations within and around our venue to be able to share with us excellent ideas for pictures. When our venue surprised us a few days before the wedding with the news that they would be starting construction the weekend of our wedding, Rebecca made a point of visiting and partnering with our venue manager to scout out the construction and re-think any necessary picture locations. It made me so comfortable knowing that we had someone as hardworking and devoted as Rebecca to make sure we had a good, realistic timeline to follow on our wedding day, and to make sure we had the perfect locations for all of the prep, first look, bridal party, and family pictures. It was so much fun working with Rebecca on the day of the wedding. She kept everything running smoothly and had fun doing it! We received the pictures so quickly after the wedding, and we can't stop looking through them! She and her assistant photographers beautifully captured all of the special moments of our day. We are so excited to start working with Rebecca to put together our album, though it will be hard to choose from the hundreds of incredible photographs she took! Thank you so much Rebecca!Sent on 09/18/2016

We loved working with Rebecca. Rebecca was very responsive and professional from the moment that we reach out to her. Rebecca was recommended to us from a friend and we are so glad that she was our photographer. We planned our wedding from out of town and she made it so easy for us, making herself available over the phone or in person when we were in town for other events. Rebecca even met us at the venue a few months prior to the wedding so that we could do a walk through of where the best photos would be for a winter wedding. She captured the entire wedding perfectly. She posted a few photos on facebook within a few days of the wedding, which she discussed with us prior to doing so, and returned the rest of the photos to us within the timeline that she promised. When putting together our wedding album she made great suggestions and responded to us quickly. I would highly recommend Rebecca as she was great to work with prior to the wedding, the day of the wedding, and after the wedding.Sent on 04/26/2016
