"From the first conversation I had with Rachel, it was clear how passionate she was about photography. Her expertise was palpable! If you're looking for a photographer who is professional, fun to be around, able to capture every moment of your day, and help you to feel comfortable in front of the camera, look no further! She was able to capture the raw emotions and essence of our day and showcase everything from the big moments to the small intimate details. Rachel is so easygoing and made our bridal party laugh during photos, eased my pre-wedding jitters, and helped to ensure that the day ran smoothly. I honestly cannot imagine my wedding without her."

"By the end of my wedding, I could say with 100% certainty, that Rachel was no longer just our photographer, but my friend. Her fun and easygoing personality and professionalism instantly put everyone at ease. I felt instantly comfortable with her and I knew that I could trust her to capture my wedding day. The photos blew us away and we have gotten SO many compliments! We are redirecting those compliments to Rachel Melanie Photography where they belong!"

"I was referred to Rachel by a friend who could not speak highly enough about their wedding photos. I was blown away when I saw their wedding album. Their rave reviews instantly made sense. During our wedding day, they made everyone feel comfortable and beautiful. They were able to provide direction when necessary (which was needed because my husband and I are not used to be in front of the camera) but also captured the more candid and intimate moments that we shared on our wedding day. I am in love with the photos and know that this is a common feeling among all of their clients!"

"Choosing a wedding photographer was the most difficult choice I had to make when planning my wedding. Selecting Rachel Melanie Photography to capture and eternalize those moments is the single best choice that I made. I cannot thank her enough for this!"
