Chicago Fine Art Wedding Photographer

For the loving hearts who want a fun and relaxed wedding day experience


Hey there, I’m Rachel!

Rachel Mandel

I’m here to help lovers look and feel their best in front of the camera so that they can have a stress free experience and gorgeous images for generations to come!

CONGRATS on your engagement!

I think the most important thing that I can do as a photographer is to affirm and validate all sizes, genders, ages, cultures, abilities, and to help bring out your joy. The reason I take photos is to help others feel beautiful and to see your natural glow as fine art ❤️

What couples are saying:

Rachel was so easy to work with! She gave great suggestions on where to take photos. I went into engagement photos with no ideas on where to take them. Rachel was very kind and provided my fiance and me with many awesome recommendations. The photos turned out amazing! You couldn’t even tell that it was super windy and freezing. I recceived so many compliments on the photos. If you want to feel very much at ease and comfortable while taking photos, I highly recommend Mandelette Photography!

Wow! What a great experience we had with Rachel on our wedding day. Not only was she professional and on time, she truly listened to what we wanted our photos to be. She was great at adapting to our surroundings - we got married in the Tribune Tower - and jumped on opportunities to take amazing photos. She was a joy to work with and edited our photos so quickly! We loved working with her and know you will too :)
