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!

"We were so impressed with everything Rachel Watkinson did. She literally held my hand from beginning to end. Her professional prompts and respectful timing during our 'Pirate Wedding' created memory bootie for us to treasure! Rachel is a trustworthy business woman, and she is one to help you from all angels and will travel with you along any distance (like when she met us in Hawaii!) Love her!"

"Rachel did an amazing job photographing our wedding. She was professional yet fun. I was impressed at her ability to troubleshoot when it poured on our wedding day. She even thought to bring clear umbrellas for us! Rachel never felt rushed or stressed out. She took her time to get even the smallest details just right. Rachel was organized and remembered people's names that she had just met. We LOVE our wedding photos -they are treasures documenting one of the most special days of our life. Rachel's artistic eye, personable disposition, and flexibility make her a fabulous photographer."

"Working with Rachel was such a dream! My fiance and I were both a little nervous about getting engagement photos done in a public place (Central Park) but Rachel made it so easy and fun and by the end we totally loved doing it! And, our excitement when we got the photos back was even better- they are so gorgeous and the colors and lighting are just what we wanted. I work in the wedding industry and so I have high standards for photography - and Rachel delivers! She really captured the love between us, and I feel so happy every time I look at our photos."
