Rachel has such a fun personality that makes those some time awkward poses easy and fun. My husband is a shy guy and things kinds of things makes him nervous, but Rachel made it fun! She was even willing to hike to our desired location. Even with all the mosquitoes, she made the experience fun and wonderful. Her work is beautiful! We love it!

Rachel is not only a great photographer, but she has a great personality. She knows when o take charge and direct people (like when trying to corral our families to get a big group shot), she was able to capture the ceremony without anyone noticing her, and she is always smiling and bubbly. Her assistant was equally as fabulous. Rachel is easy to work with, on-time, extremely professional, flexible, good at communicating, and open to ideas. I would love to work with her again and would definitely recommend her.

Rachel was our wedding photographer for our June 2014 wedding on Oahu. Because we planned our wedding from afar we were unable to actually meet Rachel until the day of. This caused no issues at all as she was incredibly friendly, organized and easy to work with right off the bat. I had multiple guests comment to me throughout the night how much they liked her and what a great job they thought she was doing. My father is very in to photography and he mentioned to me that he felt comfortable putting his own camera down after he saw her working. I haven't seen my pictures yet but based on my interactions with Rachel up to this point I have no doubt that they will be fantastic! Highly recommended.

It was such a pleasure to work with Rachel. She has an amazing eye for great photographs, and she is so lovely to be around as well. She was efficient, yet fun and had great ideas. We also did an engagement shoot with Rachel, and she was very flexible with the shoot and helped us to create some beautiful photographs.

I would recommend her to work with anyone I know, and I know my friends from the mainland getting married were wishing she lived in their wedding locations.

If you are looking for a reliable, easy going, fast to respond and helpful photographer; look no further. You need to hire Rachel! She made our wedding day a breeze, she not only helped capture our special day, she helped coordinate it. She made sure our timing for all the pictures were on point. We didn't have to ask for anything because that was already discussed before the wedding day. Out of all the vendors I worked with she was the only one that made my planning easy.We still look back at our pictures and am so thankful for the pictures she produced. All of my friends and family are so jealous :). From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Rachel! You are an amazing artist and have your craft down!

I highly recommend choosing Rachel Robertson as your photographer. She is professional, reliable, responds quickly to your emails, and is so easy and fun to work with. Coming from New York, I only met Rachel on my wedding day. From the moment we met, I felt at ease and knew that I chose the right photographer to capture our day. Rachel went out of her way to make the flow of the day so flawless and easy going. We absolutely loved how our wedding pictures came out and couldn't have asked for more. It was perfect!

If you are looking for a photographer to capture any of your lifelong photos, choose Rachel. You will be in great hands and won't be disappointed. We loved working with her so much and hope to work with her again in the near future.

Mahalo Rachel!

Rachel is amazing to work with. She did our engagement photos and our wedding photos, and I was consistently impressed. First, she's great at breaking the ice and making sure you don't feel like a weirdo. My husband didn't want anything to do with engagement photos, but ended up loving them and is now Rachel's biggest fan. Secondly--the pictures are brilliant. She manages to capture genuine, beautiful moments. It's not over the top silly or canned, and ultimately these photos will always remind us of a truly happy moment.

First, she's great at breaking the ice and making sure you don't feel like a weirdo. My husband didn't want anything to do with engagement photos, but ended up loving them and is now Rachel's biggest fan. Secondly--the pictures are brilliant. She manages to capture genuine, beautiful moments. It's not over the top silly or canned, and ultimately these photos will always remind us of a truly happy moment. Read less

I couldn't have asked for more!! Rachel was great she was so easy to get a long with and made Tim and I feel so comfortable that we looked so natural in all our pictures. She captured all the moments any bride would dream of having. I honestly love the work she did and would recommend her to everyone.

Gorgeous photos! We knew we wanted Rachel as our photographer before we had anything else decided for our wedding.
It's always best to come to the table with some ideas of pictures you'd like, but even if you can't, Rachel will make sure that you have a variety of poses and settings for you. We had so much fun doing our underwater engagement photos- Rachel was a pro in the water! As for our wedding day, we had so many gorgeous shots. Rachel really captured the light and the moment, we are so glad that she was available for our special day.

Our experience with Rachel has been absolutely AWESOME! We booked her for our two engagement shoots (one in New York and another in Hawaii) and our wedding day. She is very creative and easy to get along with so it made our photo sessions go by very smoothly. She’s always open to ideas, whether you talked about it before hand or even if you think about it while shooting that day. Although she is fun to work with, she still maintains a level of professionalism. She’s very good with time, meaning that she is able to efficiently capture the special moments of the day without taking up too much of your mingling time but more importantly without pushing back the agenda. With this skill it allowed us to spend more time with our wedding guests and when our group photos were taking longer than expected she was able to effectively communicate with our guests so that the process moved along faster. Her style of photography has a nice balance of posed and candid photos. It’s very easy to contact her and she’s always pretty quick with responding to emails and phone calls. I truly love the photos that she’s captured and I would definitely recommend her!

I can't say enough about Rachel. She is lots of fun, super nice and always smiling even when everyone is hot and sweaty! As far as the photography itself, one thing that I think many brides have a hard time doing is choosing your final set of pics. Some photographers only allow you to choose a set number of pics or they only commit to taking a certain amount of pics during your wedding. Well we did not have to worry about that with Rachel. We received digital images of all the pics taken. No stress! What else can a bride ask for.
When you're planning a destination wedding you usually don't get the luxury of meeting your vendors before your wedding day. We were so lucky that Rachel was visiting NYC and not only did we get to meet her, but she also shot our engagement pics while she was here. We were super excited about having Rachel capture our wedding day. A year later we were at our venue and it was a warm day and the trade winds were kicking in. She helped me deal with the heat by telling me we were going to wait to the last possible minute to put on my dress to take my getting ready picks. I was so grateful! I don't know if it was the fact that I had a small wedding, but we got through our pictures (group and bride/groom) rather quickly. Which was so awesome because we got to join our guests and enjoy our cocktail hour. This was a really big deal for us, because we wanted to take part in everything we had planned for the day.
Our sunset pictures were by the beach and I was ready to climb rocks,etc for Rachel...lol. I couldn't wait to see the pics and less than two months later not only did we make her blog but we had our pics! They were beautiful!! I think I went through them every day for two weeks : ) We are still getting compliments on the pics. Since many of our friends and family did not get to go to Hawaii for our wedding, the pictures really capture the whole day and gave them an inside look to the happiest day of our lives.

We loved working with Rachel and are thrilled with how our wedding pictures turned out!! Rachel is fun and bubbly and helped us throughout the day with the normal progression of events by letting us know when we should cut the cake and do the first dance. Without her, our wedding day would have never gone so smoothly. My husband and I are pretty laid back so we hadn't given much thought to poses and locations but Rachel took care of everything and directed us and our wedding party throughout the day. If there was something that we wanted to capture, she was very open to taking pictures and even gave us the best light and positioning. Thanks Rachel for making our wedding day a day that we can remember forever!!

Rachel was amazing & I would highly recommend her services. I liaised with Rachel over emails as we live in Australia & considering I'm a bit of a control freak Rachel was really easy to communicate with & everything she promised, she proved & exceeded our expectations.I had a few personal requests & this was no problem. Rachel was very friendly yet professional, nothing was too much trouble. We had a split shoot & we never had any hiccups or anything go wrong. Looking back on our special day feels like it was only yesterday, every moment was captured. The one thing I was adamant about getting right was our photos as they are the memories of your main event, thank you Rachel, we could not have done this without your appreciated efforts. Jodie

This review is really long overdue, but I thought better late than never...

Our wedding was last October and we were so lucky to have found Rachel through help of Yelp! My husband and I live in San Francisco, but we were getting married on Oahu. We were a little hesitant on finding a photographer through Yelp, but after looking through Rachel's pictures on her website, we decided to go for it. When we finally met Rachel in Hawaii, we were sooo glad to have found her! We immediately felt comfortable with Rachel and we loved her PERSONALITY!!! sweet, outgoing, and fun, yet very professional!! Fast forwarding to our wedding day, Rachel made us feel really comfortable and taking pictures with her was actually so easy! and and believe me, my husband does not like to take pictures! we even did a underwater Trash the Dress shoot and our pictures came out so amazing!!!

I definitely would recommend Rachel to anyone! just look at her pictures!!

I absolutely cannot say enough good things about Rachel Robertson. We booked Rachel for our destination wedding in September 2012 and are so glad we did. The hardest thing about booking a Destination wedding is having to have so much faith in your vendors based only on reviews and recommendations. You don't get to meet them until in our case the day of the wedding and you have to be so trusting that they will deliver what they say they are going to.

Rachel delivered everything she said she would plus so much more. We couldn't have been more happy with our photographs, they were just as beautiful as the ones she posts on her website / blog and captured all the special moments of our big day. Everybody that sees them is so amazed and thinks they are just devine - as do we!!

Rachel is such a joy to work with from compiling the first quotation right through to delivery of your photos well ahead of the timescales she promises in your contract. She is super responsive to emails, helpful on location ideas (which is ideal when you don't really know the area), professional, so much fun and relaxed to work with and has such a creative eye when it comes to what is going to work.

I couldn't be more thankful that we found Rachel as having an excellent photographer was one aspect of our wedding day that I wanted to be perfect and was not willing to compromise on.

My only regret was that we didn't book her for longer or have an engagement shoot so we had more photos we could treasure forever!

My wife and I were more than pleased with the service that Rachel provided. Speaking from the groom's point of view, meeting Rachel was a moment of relief. My bride and I were not able to meet with the photographer before the wedding so we did not know what to expect. My bride spent a lot of time looking for the "right" photographer, and although she started to drive me crazy, when she started telling me about Rachel's site, I knew we'd be going with her. She was prompt in all of our communications and her prices were more than reasonable compared to other photographers.

Rachel was a calming force right before one of the biggest moments of my life. She told me what I had to do, what she would be doing and not to worry. I knew that she had been taking pre-wedding pictures with the bride and knew I'd be hearing great things later. Rachel went above and beyond in respect to her interactions with my bride. She was well aware of our time constraints and did everything in her power to accommodate. She told us exactly how to pose and was more than willing to take ideas and suggestions. She even went out of her way to make sure we got a few perfect pictures on an outrigger canoe.

Our Hawaiian wedding could not have gone better and now we have the perfect pictures to remember them by. Rachel is what the aloha spirit is all about.

I had the fortune of having Rachel for my photographer in my wedding in April 2012. I chose carefully, as my husband and I had a small wedding of 40 people and we wanted the pictures to convey the cozy, intimate feel of the wedding, without making the party look sparse. We also did not want the veneer of a glitzy, polished wedding, with the typical canned shots of the wedding party (we ended up getting some of these anyway, because there were so many people that wanted group shots, but she made these look candid and charming). Rachel was delightful when we met her before the wedding and listened closely to the tone we wanted. On the day of the wedding, she was prompt, courteous, and invisible. Given that the wedding chapel was very small, it would have been very easy for her to be distracting to the wedding service, amidst the background of camera clicks and flash photography, but everyone at the service said that she performed beautifully and unobtrusively. When it came to the wedding party shots, she accomplished these efficiently and in record time (not easy in a small chapel that turns over services every 1.5 hours) and released my long-suffering wedding party to the festivities early. She then took my husband and me to a nearby beach and took many shots that appeared to be taken at multiple sites (so diverse were the backgrounds). And none of the pictures included a crowd full of people (or even a single extra person,despite being on the busy Ala Moana beach; I still don't know how she accomplished this). And the shots that she was able to obtain, well, let me just say that although I felt beautiful on my wedding day, she had the talent to make me even appear more so. At the end of the night, Rachel stayed well past the appointed time with no extra charge. It is no wonder that she is able to retain her wedding clients for their first baby and onwards. Should I ever need a photographer in the future, I would be foolish to not use her services again.

Rachel did a great job. She is very fun, creative and enthusiastic while being professional at the same time. She even agreed to come back next summer and shoot a delayed "trash the dress photos" as we were unable to do it after the wedding.

Rachel went above and beyond to help make our wedding great. I've looked at other's wedding photos and our are so much more unique and creative. She had a alot of ideas, however she also asked if there are any shot's or poses that we wanted too.

I highly, highly recommend her and will be using her in the future;)

we chose Rachel because her portfolios automatically stood out to us... they did not look like glorified prom photos, or pictures of people with sticks up their you-know-whats! Rachel takes photos that represent the bride and groom... they are fun, unique, and relaxed, which was such a relief on the crazy wedding day. She was insanely patient and got everything we asked for, even as we were asking for it at the last moment! We did not have an official wedding planner, so Rachel's reminders on the time schedule for some of the shots and events were really helpful, too!

For our short session, we went out surfing in our wedding clothes, and Rachel was gung ho about it! She was patient as we waited for waves that we could ride together, and even while we tried to get our poor dog to stand on a board, too.

Overall, if you are looking for someone who will make you more comfortable and calm during your shoots, is assertive enough to get those pesky lingering family members outta the way, and will go on a little adventure to get the right shots that encompass YOU as a couple, Rachel is your photographer for sure!

I wish I could rate her with a million stars...I so hate being limited to 5, especially when you find someone who is as amazing as Rachel is.

First off, I'm not the bride, I'm the mother of the bride, and I'm also a very addicted scrap-booker, keepsake keeper, etc. For over 15 years I have loved photography as a hobby and have taught others how to preserve and protect their cherished photos, so…. to say I wanted a really good photographer for my ONLY daughter's wedding is sort of an understatement. The pictures were absolutely the most important part of the wedding day to me. They would be the preservation of memories, literally, that she and her husband would have to cherish forever. Having a mom with Alzheimer's, you learn real fast that sometimes photo's are the only link you have to a memory.

So I wanted the best, and Rachel delivered. When I started searching for a photographer, I had more than just someone who could take good pictures in mind . I wanted someone who could "connect" with my daughter & her husband. I knew that if they felt comfortable, every bit of the joy they felt, and the love they shared would come through in the photographs. My daughter was very uncomfortable with being the "center of attention", and her husband by nature is VERY shy until you get to know him. I needed to find just the right person who could make them feel relaxed, like they were with an old friend, especially since they wouldn’t get to meet her until the wedding day. I talked to several photographers whose work I admired, but Rachel had an ease about her that I noticed upon our first conversation. It's as if you've known her for years even though you've never met. Since we don't live in Hawaii, our first "meeting"was on the phone and I knew immediately that this was the right person. Sure I had seen her work on line, but it was her immediate and genuine understanding of what I was looking for that made us connect. She wasn't just saying what I wanted to hear. She's relaxed, fun, & super easy to talk to. She has great ideas, gives good direction, and keeps things running smoothly. She can adapt to changes quickly and does so without getting flustered, which is awesome because no matter how well you plan, at weddings things sometimes don't go the way you thought they would! I reserved her almost 2 years ahead of time! :) (Did I mention that my daughter and I are both a little OCD?)

When we got the pictures back, (which was sooner than we were told) I was ecstatic. There were so many things that I never even knew she got. We allowed extra time between the wedding and the reception so she could take them to an area of the beach that wasn't as crowded and she made wonderful use of some areas of the hotel that I would have never thought about. I didn't want a bunch of posed family shots that no one really cares about a couple of years later…I wanted images that captured the details, the emotion, the moment. Rachel is just so creative and talented and I am absolutely thrilled that I found her, she gave us everything we wanted and more! Like someone else mentioned, if Rachel's already booked on your date…change your date if pictures are important to you! I whole-heartedly recommend Rachel Robertson Photography.

Oh! On a side note, my daughter and I decided to fly to Hawaii a year before the wedding to actually nail down some other things, and since we were there, we decided to see if Rachel could do a boudoir shoot so my daughter could make a book for her future husband. AMAZING, simply amazing is all I can really say about that! Stunning photo's, comfortable and easy shoot, and a book that ended up being something he wants every year! I told my daughter to tell him "then we have to go back to Hawaii every anniversary so Rachel can take the pictures!"

Rachel is amazing, our photos are absolutely timeless! We did engagement photos with her that are unforgetable. They are photos that your kids will fight over when you pass away.
She was so much fun to work with, my husband who is not very into photos loved it and wanted to do more photos with her.
Rachel caught the essence and personality of everyone at the wedding and reception.
I am planning on going back to get her to do pregnancy photos one day. She is the best you could ask for for your one and only special day.

I would highly highly highly recommend Rachel Robertson Photography for your photography needs. We were planning our wedding in Hawaii from Seattle, Washington, so had to do all planning over the phone and email. Rachel was very responsive, which I cannot say for the typical Hawaiian vendor (you know that aloha spirit we all love). Not only did Rachel make the process easy for us by asking all the right questions and being readily available during the entire planning process, she also recommended other wedding vendors that we could work with who are repeatable. Due to budget we were only able to have Rachel for a certain amount of time at our wedding, she was scheduled to leave right before our parent dances and she offered to stay a bit long to capture these important moments. And need I say her work is absolutely amazing! We have received numerous compliments on her work. Rachel is really easy to interact with, very professional and extremely talented. We will also recommend her for any photography needs!

Working with Rachel was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! From the moment we contacted her (we found good reviews on Yelp) to the day of, she was easy to reach and very professional. She even met with me at a cafe for a consultation prior to our wedding day to discuss ideas. More importantly, Rachel was great to work with. Warm, personable, flexible and at the same time inconspicuous in her work. She enjoys what she does and it shows in her work. I was quite happy with our pictures. We had both great photos documenting the day and people, and cool artistic detail shots as well. Her work speaks for itself if you check out her website. Thanks Rachel!

Rachel's photography captured our wedding day the way we wanted. She has a very affordable package which included high-resolution digital files which were available to us in a short time. We felt Rachel was a perfect mix of photojournalism and traditional style photography. Rachel's photos covered every aspect of the wedding and it seemed as if she was magically everywhere. She was also very pleasant to work with, helpful, offered and accepted opinions and her presence was welcomed by all of our guests. She also made us feel comfortable and always had a smile on her face.

Rachel was wonderful to work with. We wanted our wedding photos to be more natural more than anything else and she was able to deliver! In addition to her awesome work, she was also very easy to work with. She listened to our wants, gave us feedback and incorporated them on the day of the wedding. Rachel was also very accommodating when we threw her a curveball a couple days before the wedding. We had a last minute request for a 2nd photographer to take "getting ready" photos for the grooms party. Not only was she able to make it happen, Rachel was able to enlist a very talented (and super nice) 2nd photographer. We couldn't have been more happy with our choice and would highly recommend her as a wedding photographer.

Rachel was our photographer for our destination Hawaiian wedding. We only had 1 trip before the wedding to plan everything. Our wedding planner had advised us to select at least 2 vendors for each service we needed. We looked at a whole bunch of portfolios before our trip and there was only ONE we wanted to meet.....and it was Rachel! Her photos are documentary style, beautiful, vibrant and perfect for our very small wedding of 32 people. My husband and I are people who HATE having our pics taken on a normal day and knowing how many photos would be taken of us on our wedding was overwhelming! But, Rachel is so awesome, we couldn't believe the photos when we saw them. "Is that really us??" we still think! She also came up with fantastic locations and ideas for our "trash the dress" session. We felt like models! LOL! One of the best things that Rachel did at our wedding besides take amazing pics, is that she was able to manage our amateur paparazzi pic taking family members who were getting aggressive in their photo taking and getting in her shots or making us pose too long for their benefit! My family still laughs at her stern yet effective way to get them to keep our photo shot moving along! Thank goodness for Rachel! Lastly, she totally does not try to cut any corners! I was losing track of time, but she was so organized she even reminded me if I want certain photo of things...and if so, I'd better get a move on it before the light was gone! She is the person you want for your pics! Just look at her portfolio and you'll see! Mahalo Rachel!!!
