The Portfolio

"...in absolute awe of the photos."

symone & erhan

Rachel, we are literally screaming! These are absolutely breathtaking! I am honestly in absolute awe of these photos. I cannot thank you enough for capturing these moments for us. I'm looking at these photos imagining looking back on them in decades and feeling emotional. We love every single photo. Thank you so so much for turning these around so quickly with such an incredibly busy schedule. This is easily the most excited I've been for our wedding yet. 

"Our photos are absolutely beautiful."

KASHON & MICHAEL

Thank you for for capturing the happiness of one of the most important days our lives. You’ve made such a special day even better. Both myself and my husband’s family enjoyed working with you so much. I’m also so impressed that you got our 1 year old crying son to briefly part his lips and smile for the photos! Lol. You are simply amazing. Thank you so much Rachel! Our photos are absolutely beautiful.

"The pictures really helped us relive the most amazing day."

JAMIE & DAN

I was so at ease and overjoyed to have Rachel there to capture every beautiful moment. Rachel captured the beautiful and emotional moments of both my husband and me throughout the evening. She quickly turned the pictures around and got them back to us within two weeks. The pictures really helped us relive the most amazing day. To this day I still get compliments not just on the beautiful pictures but also on how wonderful Rachel was interacting with all of our family/friends throughout the day. She is amazing and does beautiful work — I definitely recommend her.
