We are SO thankful for Rachel!!! She shot our engagement/save-the-date photos at a location she has never shot at and isn’t super familiar with, and they seriously came out PERFECT. We could not be happier. She is not only incredibly sweet, affordable, and flexible, but she is very talented. Besides the main location, I did not have spots picked out I wanted to shoot at, so we ended up walking around while Rachel pointed out spots for good lighting. I can’t say enough good things. If you book her, you will not be disappointed!
My experience with Rachel was amazing. I have never done a photo shoot before, so I was really nervous at first, but once we got started, she made me feel comfortable in front of the camera. Rachel made me and my fiancé laugh throughout the whole time so we had a fun time. She has a talent for capturing unique and beautiful moments. She will go out of her way to make the pictures and the poses the way you want it. Rachel is very professional and responds right away; usually no later than 24 hours. I would very much recommend her for engagement and wedding pictures!
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 ♡
Rachel photographed my brother and sister-in-law’s wedding, and did such a great job! She communicated her plan of attack to everyone, made sure that all family members were captured, and was so ‘savvy and invisible’ we barely noticed she was there. She captured SO much in the two hours we hired for, and everything turned out so dreamy!!! Three cheers for Rachel!! Can’t wait to hire her again for future events!
Rachel is such a pleasure to work with! We shot our anniversary photos and we had a ball. She made us feel like super models and relieved us of any jitters. She captured so many sweet moments and used the natural environment in amazing ways. We had such a good time shooting for our first anniversary and I am already trying to think of more occasions to shoot with her!! I highly recommend booking with Rachel!
Rachel exceeded all expectations. From the initial meet and greet, I could tell that she has a clear passion for people and capturing moments that will last through generations. Rachel’s personality is what won me over - there was no question that Rachel wanted to get to know not only my wife and I, but who our family was and what values were important to us (she even got the names of key wedding guests so she could address them personally!). This relationship building aspect of her personality clearly shows in her images through a certain level of comfort between camera and subject. Rachel’s photography style can be described as natural and lasting. Pictures that have lasted in the family for generations come to mind, such as portraits that you’d find at grandpa’s house. If you’re searching for a photographer and have not had a chance to speak with Rachel yet, schedule a meet and greet with her. I assure you that you will walk away feeling as if you’ve made a new friend. Her chemistry, Image Quality, and style exceed expectations. Thank you, Rachel.
