I could not have dreamt of a better experience with Rachel Wilkins as my wedding photographer. Not only did she shoot my engagement photos and my boudoir photos, but also my dream wedding! She was professional from start to finish. She showed up earlier than requested on my wedding day and caught every single detail. She was running around like a crazy person, and I felt so lucky!! The best part was - she got me a drive of 1,000+ photos and a BEAUTIFUL wedding book delivered to me one week after my honeymoon (two weeks after my wedding). Not to mention that the week after my wedding was Thanksgiving! I was 100% blown away by Rachel. Can’t wait to have her document my pregnancy and future family photos!
Through Rachel’s photography, we’ll be able to relive our cherished wedding day over and over, forever. Rachel has such a soft, comforting presence that allowed us to be relaxed and ourselves, and it really shows in the images. A rush of tears and vivid memories come back to me every time I watch our slideshow and I have to credit Rachel’s intuitive, artistic vision and passion for telling the story. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience or end result; thank you Rachel for so beautifully capturing our wedding day and every other momentous event in our lives!
Rachel has been one of my best friends since grade school and knows me better than just about everyone who is close to me. But that’s not why I chose her to shoot the best, most unforgettable and special day of my life. Her eye for photography has always been impressive and she continues to learn and progress after each shoot she does. I knew having her shoot my wedding would be so meaningful and memorable. Her passion always comes thru in her photography whether it’s bikinis, babies or couples. She’s a perfectionist as well as great company to have included on your special moments. I’d recommend her to anyone. If you can’t take my word for it, look in her gallery and you will be anxious to get her booked for whatever photos you have in mind!
Rachel was very patient and super flexible during our wedding. She did a great job and took some of my absolute favorite shots of the day. I love her work!
It is kind of a funny story how we ended up choosing Rachel to be our wedding photographer. One evening while watching TV with my then fiancé, I was perusing Facebook looking at an old friend’s wedding photos and was stunned at how romantic and beautiful they were. I eagerly showed David and immediately had to find out who took these photos. In the back of my brain I knew that there would be no way that I could afford someone who took such beautiful pictures. I found her website and was shocked at all of her work! I needed this photographer bad! David told me to sleep on it, but I couldn’t. I stayed up all night looking at the other albums on her website, obsessing over how much I wanted my wedding photos to look like the examples I was looking at. I looked up her Facebook page and lone and behold we had some mutual friends. I reached out to those friends to see how they knew her. Turns out she also photographed their wedding and highly recommended her. That is when I reached out. Rachel’s style is soft and romantic. She focuses on natural lighting to highlight her subject’s best features. She captured how beautiful I felt that day and I can’t help myself from staring at my pictures each and every day. I am a bit obsessed! She takes the time to get to know you and goes out of her way to make sure that you are happy with everything she is doing. She is extremely adaptable to any situation and has your best interest at heart. For example, the day we had scheduled our engagement shoot, she called and said that it was cloudy down by the beach where we wanted to take the pictures. She said that we could still take the photos if we wanted and could make it work, but she advised that we pick a day with better weather so that the background would look better. She was ready and willing to change her schedule to meet ours on a different day just to give us the best experience that she could. (Btw… those pictures were amazing as well!) You will not regret choosing Rachel as your wedding photographer! She shows up early and stays in constant contact throughout the whole process; from the moment you sign your contract until the photos are ready. She even put together this sweet custom box with our last name and date of our special day carved in the lid. Inside were some of the best photos printed as well as a flash drive with everything else lying on a bed of sunflowers (our wedding flower). It was beautiful and such a great keepsake! I highly recommend Rachel to everyone and anyone who needs photographs taken for their special day or any of the other packages she has to offer. My husband and I have already decided that we will be using her for our maternity shoots and our newborn shoots and all other special occasions that require pictures!
