What clients are saying
Let me start off by saying I am extremely picky when it comes to photographers, as my career entails working with them closely and regularly. I was nervous when it came time to hire a wedding photographer as those photos will be with you for the rest of your life. Rachel set the bar. She is an amazing artist who has the capacity to capture a client's personality and vision and make that translate into the gorgeous photos she creates. That level of skill and artistry is rare for a wedding photographer. But even more rare is the level of integrity and professionalism with which she runs her business. I was blown away with how well I was taken care of and attended to from beginning to end of our experience with her. Her involvement in my wedding made me feel like I could relax and enjoy my day (this was a huge deal as I can tend to obsess over details and micromanage things.) Rachel took a weight off my shoulders because I could tell she knew exactly what she was doing. She was calm, collected, and very kind to my family and friends as she directed certain shots. She went above and beyond my expectations of her, and the product she delivered was STUNNING. Everyone tells me our photos look like they should be in Vogue or Vanity Fair (which was the aesthetic I was going for, and she captured what I wanted perfectly.) I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful of an experience it was hiring Rachel, from start to finish, her work ethic, artistry, and professionalism are hard to come by in this industry. Since my wedding I have hired her to do other photoshoots for me and my family's business, and she delivered incredible service yet again. HIRE THIS WOMAN, you will not regret it.

Rachel shot my wedding in Dahlonega, GA in April 2016 and was an absolute DREAM to work with. When I met her I knew she was the perfect choice, not only because of her talent, but because she is a kind, generous and genuine person. Leading up to the wedding and on the big day she made sure to keep us on track and stress free. Sam and I felt her joy and excitement for us throughout the entire day. The results are even better than the experience. My pictures are magical. She finds a way to capture all of the emotions on this most special day. She puts a lot of effort in the editing process to make sure every snap shot is frozen in time just as you remember it. Highly Recommend. BOOK HER!

Rachel was absolutely fantastic to work with. It is clear that she is very talented by looking at her work, but what sets Rachel apart is how comfortable she makes you feel throughout the entire process. She's incredibly responsive to any input you have, and makes sure to capture the moments of your day that you truly care the most about. She's particularly awesome with natural lighting, so if you're having an outdoor ceremony and are worried about shadows/light, Rachel won't disappoint you. My husband and I really cannot recommend her enough, and the photos she provided us were more than what we could have hoped for.

It's hard to imagine having used anyone other than Rachel and Dimitri to capture our June 2016 wedding. In the time leading up to the wedding day, Rachel made the coordination of details easy and was always willing to listen to and work with our vision. On the wedding day, Rachel and Dimitri were incredibly kind, patient and made us feel so comfortable. Our photos turned out wonderfully! Rachel and Dimitri managed to capture so many special moments with great talent and attention to detail. We'd recommend Rachel and Dimitri to anyone!

If you are considering Rachel as a photographer for your wedding, trust me when I say you will be so thankful that you chose her to be a part of your team. For my husband and I, finding an outstanding photographer was one of the first and most important decisions we made while planning our wedding. Not only is Rachel a seriously talented photographer, but she is also one of the most genuine, caring, inspiring, non-judgmental, humble and all-around awesome people I've ever met. Rachel went above and beyond our expectations and she will always have a special place in our hearts! I truly couldn't be happier that we chose Rachel to document such a special time in our lives.

One of my good friends from college is a photographer, but she was unable to do our wedding because of scheduling conflicts. Although I was disappointed at first, she connected me with Rachel and I really liked her photos on her blog. We did not meet in person before the wedding due to last minute decisions and traveling, etc. but there really was no need for it. Rachel knew what she was doing and was confident she would deliver great photos. I am a pretty laid back person, so Rachel's positive attitude only helped ease my stress about the wedding. When I met her a few hours before the wedding for initial photos, I was impressed her ability to be everywhere at once. She took so many pictures of candid moments with my bridesmaids, which I was very excited about. Personally, I am not great at modeling for pictures, but Rachel instructed me and guided me so well in what I should do and pose for photos. Behind the scenes at the wedding, she took so many great photos of special moments and candid dancing shots. Honestly I did not notice her presence most of the time at the wedding, she knew how to blend in and get great pictures. I was able to enjoy my wedding and not worry about pictures. When I received my final photos weeks later: AMAZING. I smiled at every one and I was ecstatic to see that she took so many shots of my family, friends, and reception. I have a picture of every single thing I wanted to remember from my wedding. I have absolutely no regrets that I was paired with Rachel, and I am so thankful that it worked out so well!
Short answer: If you are deliberating on which photographer to use, I highly recommend Rachel. She is easy to work with, gets along well with everyone, and takes incredible photos. You will be extremely pleased with her work and final photos.

Working with Rachel was a deeply rewarding experience that I will always remember. Throughout the process of planning our wedding, Rachel was extremely supportive, creative and kind. For us she was more than just our photographer, she was a friend and constant source of support. We love the beautiful images that she captured during our engagement session and Wedding Day and we will cherish them for the rest of our lives. If you want a personal experience on your Wedding Day, I wholeheartedly recommend Rachel.

Rachel was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. Your photographer is among the top 5 most important decision you will make, along with venue, catering, florals/décor, and ceremony details. You will likely spend more time with your photographer than you will with anyone else on your wedding day—including your spouse! Rachel was relaxed and fun. She took charge when we needed her to rescue us from pushy guests, and she sat back and captured the moments that needed to happen. She and her team exceeded our hopes for our wedding day photography. Everything was natural, beautiful, romantic, personal, and organized (which is more important than you’d think for your wedding day!)—she captured us so well. *Rachel made our wedding day better.* Even prior to the wedding day, we loved our engagement photos and session—she took two very stressed out people and made us have fun, and the results were perfect. Choose Rachel as your photographer—you won’t regret it. Thank-you for being personal and phenomenal, Rachel!!

Rachel has an incredible eye and ability to catch the most special moments without her subjects even noticing. The photos she took during our wedding and engagement session by far the best photos that have ever been taken of my husband and I, our family, and our friends! You can feel the emotion, seeing the photos for the first time brought me to tears. Each person who we shared them with was shocked with how well they turned out and commented on how lucky we were to have such a great photographer. We are so grateful to have so many beautiful moments captured from the most special day of our lives and are so happy that Rachel was the one we chose to work with. On top of being an incredible photographer, Rachel is wonderful to work with, professional, patient, and easy going. I would happily recommend her to anyone – be ready to have the best best pictures taken of your life!

I’ve known Rachel since high school, and have always loved her personality and spunk. She’s the kind of person you instantly connect with, and it’s easy to have fun with her in any situation. Her talent is incredible – the images look magazine-worthy. She’s easy to work with, and scheduled around our time constraints. We did an engagement session and booked her for our wedding, and couldn’t be happier with the photographs. They are gorgeous and captured each moment spectacularly. We recommend her highly, and emphatically.

Professional, creative and a breeze to work with! I had a wonderful experience working with Rachel. She took so many incredible pictures of our wedding, it is hard to choose which ones to print. Thank you so much for capturing this day better than I could have imagined!

Rachel was a joy to work with! I appreciated her calm and peaceful presence throughout the day. It felt like a friend was there with us rather than another vendor. Rachel captured so many special unposed moments, which is exactly what we hoped for. If we were able re-do our whole wedding again, we would have Rachel back in a heartbeat!

Rachel captured my day as a storyteller would and made it into a fairytale. Her attention to detail was equally shared with big moments. She was so calm and focused the whole day, which was refreshing for my anxiety/ADD self. Her directions for portraits were subtle, not forceful. I felt relaxed and had so much fun. That calmness shows through the pictures how she captured genuine emotions.
