PHILOSOPHY

I believe that my role as your wedding photographer is to make you look and feel your best on your special day. I strive to capture images that are genuine and reflect the true joy of the day. My style is a mixture of posed and candid photography. I specialize in natural light and indoor flash photography. Whether you're hosting an outdoor garden wedding or a ballroom reception, I'm prepared to capture your day beautifully. I love helping my couples create albums and prints once the big day has passed; I believe your wedding pictures deserve to live on for future generations to enjoy. I'm honored you are considering Mandelette Photography for your wedding.

"...it couldn't have been more perfect."

DANI & KEVIN

Rachel photographed our wedding day and it couldn't have been more perfect. She knew exactly what kind of photos I wanted and made sure to get them all. She had such a great eye for capturing all the beauty Chicago architecture has to offer. She had such a relaxed energy throughout the day which kept me super calm knowing that she was on top of everything without making things chaotic. I highly recommend her for your special day!

"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.
