Rachel is one of our new favorite people! From first meeting her, to wrapping up our wedding shoot, she was fun, bubbly, professional and kind. My husband and I have never looked better than in front of Rachel's lens ;) She made us feel completely at ease during our engagement shoot, which was a great experience overall. It was wonderful "practice" leading up to our big day. She listened to all of our wants and needs ("keep it low key, include our dog Roxy, no frills, just us having fun") and captured our true essence as a couple: lots of laughs and love! We met again prior to our wedding to discuss the details of our small affair, and Rachel really helped us to get all of our ducks in a row as far as timing and the photos we wanted taken.
Rachel photographed me (the Bride) at my childhood home, with my parents and Roxy while getting ready. She captured every detail of what I wore and the entire experience of preparing for my wedding. At the wedding venue, Rachel captured the most amazing shots of our reception room, I had no idea it looked so good! She also took some amazing photos of my Groom while awaiting the ceremony. She captured the feeling, not just how everything looked.
The shots of our ceremony take me right back to that wonderful moment, and will be treasured in our home forever. The group photos are stellar, I can't wait to frame them and give them as gifts to our family, in addition to making a lovely gallery wall in our home. The "Rachel Wall!" :) Rachel's blog post is one of the highlights of our day, it's so thoughtful and well written-- Rachel really cares!!
The only downside? Trying to decide which photos to print, and which to put into our wedding album, because I love each and every image so much!! Thanks for everything Rachel, you are lovely!
