I believe that a wedding is more than just one day. It's a celebration of two lives crossing paths into one that will be remembered in your forever journey together. I want to photograph the moments that happen naturally, all while preserving them timelessly.
When I am photographing you, my number one rule is for you to feel confident in front of my camera. I love an authentic documentary type style, but I also know it comes with helping my couples feel at ease while working with me. So if I do anything right in being your photographer, I want it to be that I made you feel like the best version of you, while delivering you photographs that display your love accurately.
Being a wedding photographer is truly something I wouldn't trade for the world. There’s nothing more important to me than providing you with the photos of your dreams, on top of an experience like no other. I find real inspiration in the raw moments between loved ones & it gives me so much joy to give them to you frozen in time. To this day, I still find it amazing that couples from all over trust me with such a monumental moment in their lives. Its an honor - so thank you for being here!
When officially booked, I send over vendor recommendations if needed, and jump right into planning the engagement session. From the Pinterest inspo, to the location, we will make your engagement photos AMAZE. You'll also get a planning guide from me with tips on when & where to do things!
Once your package is decided, I send over the contract, and you have 72 hours to book! The initial retainer is 30% of your package. I book up super fast so I like to make sure I'm getting you on my calendar.
Before booking, I like to get to know you a bit! We will do a phone call or FaceTime to talk about the booking process & which package makes the most sense for your day. I'll then send over your proposal to make it official.
After the wedding day you'll get some sneak peeks before the full gallery delivery. Full gallery delivery will come between 8-12 weeks post wedding date. You'll get a full online gallery with high resolution downloads & memories to stare at forever!
About 2 weeks out from your date, we will deep dive into the timeline of your day & plan for what matters to you most. I'll ask for things like a family photo list & make sure you both feel like your day is planned exactly to your liking.
In the months leading up until the wedding I will send you over a questionnaire to help with timeline & mood board creation. We will plan a time to go over your day in the few weeks before so that everything is PERFECT!
I don’t even know where to begin… Rachel & her work is honestly just beyond WORDS! As a couple who has never taken professional photos it can seem uncomfortable and intimidating the first time. She made us feel so comfortable & guided us every step of the way. The results proved all of that. They are natural & effortless yet you see how creative and amazing she is as a photographer. 1000xs recommend her for any professional photos you are considering getting done. THANK YOU SO MUCH RACHEL!
