We loved Rachelle! She was the perfect photographer! She made us feel like royalty on our special day, and captured every moment perfectly. She made us feel relaxed, and was on the ball with everything. She had great ideas for us to pose, and where the pictures should be taken. We never felt rushed, and she helped us stay clam. We love all the photos she took, and will cherish them forever!

We met Rachelle Erickson at the Tulalip Wedding show.  From the first moment we started talking I knew she would be our photographer.   My package included engagement photos, and my fiancé was so nervous he had never done pictures like that before, I told him don’t worry it will be fun.  After few shots he was great, and had a blast she even got great pictures of our dogs.  I wasn’t even sure what to wear and she gave suggestions and it turned out beautiful.   She told us where to look and how to sit and stand to get the best pictures it was so much fun.  And she was even able to get some great pictures of the surrounding area to use in the book we are using for our guest book.   She took so many great shots we had a hard picking the ones we liked the most.  We left it up to her to make our collage and we didn’t have to change a thing we loved what she picked. I can’t wait to see how our guest book turns out.  We have amazing shots in black and white and sepia they all were so amazing.  We liked her so much she is going to take my sons senior pictures this year.

Rachelle is our wedding photographer, and started us out with engagement shoots.
She was so welcoming, and made us feel very comfortable. We had lots of fun shooting! She did a great job giving us tips on how to stand and place our hands, how to walk and look good in the photos. She had a great eye knowing where the best shoots could be taken. She gave us lots of suggestions on what props to use, and they turned out great. The photos turned out AMAZING and we're so happy to have chosen her. We're looking forward to the wedding photos and know she was the best person to choose!

Rachelle was a dream come true! We were lucky enough to meet her about a year prior to our event, which meant we could bug her with questions and ideas and we were always pleasantly surprised. Neither my husband nor I are very artistic, so wedding pictures were out of our league. Rachelle always came up with beautiful ideas and scenarios. I really wanted fall engagement pictures, and as anyone in Seattle knows - fall is rainy season - a.k.a. really hard to schedule outdoor photos in! Rachelle was so flexible! I think we had to reschedule three or four times, but she was always patient and kind, working with our schedule and thinking of creative places to go. Not only did we want outdoor engagement photos, we wanted our puppy in the pictures. She is amazing with pets! It took a little over a month to get the pictures back, and wow - her talent shone through, they were incredible. We have received so many compliments on our pictures. Both sets of parents were so in love, they ended up requesting engagement pictures AND wedding pictures.
As for the wedding day - Rachelle had an assistant who was so patient and seemed to read her mind. She was in so many places at once, I don't know how she did it all! She was so creative and got all of the shots we requested. My husband had a lot of last minute family adjustments and while I was losing patience with it, Rachelle rolled with it beautifully. Her traditional photo's mixed with modern technology make for some absolutely beautiful artwork. We recommend her to all of our friends and family who are in need of a photographer, whether it be for a wedding, birthday or pet portraits - Rachelle is our go-to photographer!

Photo-booth FUN!
We were so excited that our photographer offered photo-booth services! She was not only a gem with our overall photography services, she created a memorable and fun way for our guests to interact with each other and pass the time between the service and reception.
We debated between using an actual photo "booth" and a photographer with a backdrop. We are so pleased we went with the photographer and backdrop. This gave our guests a larger space so more people could be in the creative photos.
Our guests were so involved and had so much fun - Rachelle provided a trunk full of props ranging from pink cowboy hats to feather boas and funny glasses. She even thought of the small details - like signage with our initials and wedding date. It created such a fun ambiance! We were so excited to share the photos with our family and friends!

Loved Rachelle Erickson Photography! She is so professional and I am so lucky to have been able to have her and her staff on my wedding day. She made the day so perfect and took all the photos me and my husband wanted, and more! She had extra photographers with her too, which made it nice because I got to see photos of different parts of the day from a couple different angles, which was nice to have. One of the things that I thought was so amazing was the guestbook. It's so amazing and professional looking, It has all the amazing photos from my engagement session that I loved. When my guests signed it, it was hard for them not to flip through the whole book. The thing I like most about it is the way the pages are. When you flip them they lay flat and you don't have to crease them down and have an annoying page sticking up. It's very high quality. Overall the wedding photos were so amazing, I could not have asked for a better photographer. There are going to be so many of these photos hung up around my house! The day was absolutely perfect and Rachelle was able to capture that in the photos she took.

Our Engagement Photo Session!

We met Rachelle at the wedding show. Her albums and creativity stood out over all the other photographer booths. She was so fun, warm, and inviting unlike many of the other booths. From the moment we met her at the Farm in Snohomish she made us feel comfortable and completely at ease. She brought out a childlike fun and Joe and I were able to really enjoy the experience. As a bride, I was not at my most favorable weight and was somewhat concerned with how our pictures would turn out. Not only were we completely comfortable, but our pictures melted away any fears! She has so much experience and knowledge and she made that evident during not only our session but also when she presented our pics! Our engagement pics captured all of the emotion and love that my fiancé and I share! Emotions that I did not even know could be printed in a one-dimensional print! Rachelle is just phenomenal! I am so thankful that Joe and I have had the pleasure of working with such a truly gifted photographer and an amazing woman!

A Glamour / Boudior Day for the Bride-to-be!
From the first time I saw Rachelle’s sample glamour book at the wedding show, I knew this was something that I wanted to do! Her albums are the best quality I have ever seen! The pictures shown in her sample album were the perfect example of how every woman should get the experience of feeling to show their beauty! Never doing anything like this before, Rachelle had a ton of great ideas on how to create those special moments that you will love. During my glamour / buodior shoot with Rachelle, she made me feel like a model! She made me feel comfortable and made it one of the best experiences in my life! When I finally saw the pictures, I was absolutely blown away! I thought “that’s ME?!!” I thought I was looking at pictures of a rock star! The book she created was unbelievably phenomenal! My pics looked absolutely amazing and her little creative touches transformed the book into an absolute work of art! I looked so natural in all of the pictures!

Rachelle and Ricole has an incredible way with people and somehow managed to get everyone cooperate throughout the day. All the pictures that they took were wonderful! it was nearly impossible to choose which ones to have printed for us and our family's album. Thank you guys for creating beautiful memories from our special day. You guys did an extra awesome job! Rachelle is an organized, prompt and professional person. She truly care about who we were as a couple.. and believe me, it shows in her work. Her creative ideas, innovative shots and poses can bring you over the heels on your wedding's pictures day!

We hired Rachelle as our wedding photographer and it was one of the best decisions we could have made! The day goes by so fast; good-quality photography is an absolute must in my opinion. In addition to taking beautiful photographs, Rachelle is so full of energy and fun to be around! Her upbeat and confident demeanor definitely helped make us at ease. Our first experience with Rachelle was when she shot our Engagement Session, which was included in our Wedding Photography Package with her. Not only did we have an absolute blast during the shoot but the pictures came out STUNNING, very artistic and professional. These are pictures we will treasure for years to come! We ended up purchasing an Engagement Photo Signing book for our wedding (in lieu of a traditional guest book) so guests could sign on the pages of our custom made engagement album. It was an amazing way to both get a beautiful, high-quality album of our engagement session and a unique wedding guest book all-in-one that will not be just stored away in a box like a traditional guest book.

After our experience with Rachelle during our engagement session, we knew that we had chosen our wedding photographer wisely and were so excited for her to shoot our upcoming wedding. On our wedding day, Rachelle was there from morning to night documenting the entire day. Although we were being photographed all day, we never felt overwhelmed or on the spot as she was able to just blend in and get fabulous (and sometimes hilarious!) candid pictures of us and our guests as well as special posed pictures of us and our family. Just days after our wedding she released some gorgeous “sneak peaks” and we got all of our pictures back in less than a month! She captured the whole day beautifully, we absolutely adore our wedding pictures and have gotten so many great compliments on them! On top of it all, compared to other wedding photographers (which we interviewed many before hiring Rachelle), Rachelle was by far one of the most reasonably priced and went above and beyond to work to create a package that was within our budget. Now that we’re expecting a new addition to our family in a few months, we of course already have plans set up for her to shoot both maternity and newborn photos! We feel so lucky to have found Rachelle as our photographer and highly recommend her.

Rachelle was everything we could have hoped for in a photographer, and more! My husband and I felt so comfortable working with her, its like we've known her for years. Her photos are absolutely amazing, not to mention her professional attitude. She even surprised us with some gorgeous props that really added to our wedding photos. She was able to capture everything from the smallest details and priceless moments to photos of every single person that attended our wedding. We found Rachelle through a friend who shared her day with Rachelle and we could not be more thankful for their referral! We will pass along our wonderful experience to our friends and contact Rachelle for future photo services!

Having Rachelle as our wedding photographer was like having an old childhood friend in charge of capturing indelible images of our special day. As a photographer, Rachelle not only has the technical and artistic skills one would hope for (an eye for lighting and composition and a creative eye) but she has an uncanny flair for capturing the spirit and personality of an event and the people participating. Each photo of my husband and I captures our affection for each other and the pleasure we took in our wedding day; the bridal party and family members sport equally open and authentic smiles. From a (sometimes stressed) bride’s point-of-view, Rachelle and her assistant couldn’t have been easier or more calming to work with – they made the pre-ceremony photo session fun and relaxing with their warm manner and clear joy in capturing our day.

Perhaps the most outstanding aspect of working with Rachelle was her attention to capturing the tone and details of our wedding. The whole bridal party and family had spent months helping me create personal details like handmade jam and hand-picked flowers, and arranging quirky photo props and our vaudevillian band. Rachelle’s detailed photographs of the ambience and setting of our wedding feature elements that highlight our efforts to make our wedding special and very “us”; from the photos of the band leader’s accordion to the images of our carefully arranged favor table with jam and handmade banners, Rachelle understood what we wanted our wedding day to express and captured that spirit permanently in her lovingly composed photos. Rachelle also didn’t miss a single memorable live-action moment, seizing the most meaningful elements of our ceremony and images of our friends and family members’ toasts that instantly remind us of the words they shared with us.

Rachelle and her work are well-worth her (incredibly reasonable!) pricing. Not once did I feel that my inquiries or requests were an inconvenience before or after the big day; in fact, just the opposite – corresponding and collaborating with Rachelle have been like working with a close friend who always has my best interest at heart. I’ll hire Rachelle again in a heartbeat for any professional photography needs and I look forward to working with her in the future for baby or family photos,

If you’re looking for a warm, personable, creative, hard-working photographer with stellar instincts, I urge you to look no further – you’ll find no one as wonderful as Rachelle!

The whole bridal party and family had spent months helping me create personal details like handmade jam and hand-picked flowers, and arranging quirky photo props and our vaudevillian band. Rachelle’s detailed photographs of the ambience and setting of our wedding feature elements that highlight our efforts to make our wedding special and very “us”; from the photos of the band leader’s accordion to the images of our carefully arranged favor table with jam and handmade banners, Rachelle understood what we wanted our wedding day to express and captured that spirit permanently in her lovingly composed photos. Rachelle also didn’t miss a single memorable live-action moment, seizing the most meaningful elements of our ceremony and images of our friends and family members’ toasts that instantly remind us of the words they shared with us.

Rachelle and her work are well-worth her (incredibly reasonable!) pricing. Not once did I feel that my inquiries or requests were an inconvenience before or after the big day; in fact, just the opposite – corresponding and collaborating with Rachelle have been like working with a close friend who always has my best interest at heart. I’ll hire Rachelle again in a heartbeat for any professional photography needs and I look forward to working with her in the future for baby or family photos,

If you’re looking for a warm, personable, creative, hard-working photographer with stellar instincts, I urge you to look no further – you’ll find no one as wonderful as Rachelle! Read less

From the moment I met Rachelle, we hit it off. I initially met her at one of the bridal shows and we had a great conversation. She was so easy to talk to. We were getting married in Maui and she said that she photographed destination weddings. I wanted my fiancé to meet her so I had him go with me to the next bridal show. We made our decision at that point to have her photograph our wedding and reception. She flew over to Maui and took so many beautiful pictures of our wedding and dinner afterwards. I forget about how distinctive the colors were over there until I look at our pictures. The sunset pictures she took were exquisite. The colors from the wedding itself were unbelievable. The colors in the pictures are more vivid than our memories. What a beautiful and perfect day and Rachelle was able to capture that. Being a typical wedding, the day is just a complete whirlwind, and trying to remember everything is nearly impossible. Rachelle’s pictures captured the moment so completely that we were beside ourselves with how beautiful the entire event was. She took the cutest pictures of my two and a half year old niece who was all over the place during the wedding. She didn’t miss a shot. She was very patient with the kids in the wedding. They really responded well to her. Rachelle brought up the idea of doing a “Trash Your Dress” session. That was so much fun!! We had such a great time. The pictures she took were phenomenal. Her energy and creativity had us laughing at times, which led to a very fun shoot. Rachelle also did a family shoot for my parents’ wedding anniversary while we were over there. The pictures that she took were very memorable. A couple of months after the wedding, we had our reception in the Seattle area. Rachelle took those pictures, too. She does so well capturing the moment that we will never forget our special time. We so enjoyed having Rachelle as our photographer that she feels like part of the family. Overall, Rachelle adds to the event she’s photographing.. She has the type of personality that gets along well with everybody. She caters to the couple’s needs and wants, and makes the day perfect. We would definitely recommend Rachelle as a photographer for any event or memory. Thank you Rachelle!!!!

"Warm 106.9 wedding Photographer of a lifetime"

Rachelle Erickson donated her time and service to the Warm 106.9 wedding of a lifetime contest. My husband and I were the proud recipients of the giveaway, and with that came the wonderful opportunity to work with Rachelle and appreciate her talents as not only a photographer but as an artist. Rachelle donated an onsite engagement photography session, where she took pictures of us on location utilizing various landmarks in the Bellevue community. She added her creativity to make every shot unique and memorable. She also designed our save –the-date cards and wedding invitations, incorporating our photographs into each one. She created a beautiful picture guest book, which she gifted to us along with 6 hours of her time on our wedding day to capture our entire event. Rachelle created fun, new, and innovative ways to make our photographs one-of-a-kind memories.
As if Rachelle’s donations were not enough, there was a medical emergency at the wedding, which caused a delay. Rachelle continued to stay beyond our agreed upon time, and working within our medical emergency remained calm and was still was able to capture the photos we wanted of our special day.
We proudly recommend Rachelle Erickson as a highly professional, accommodating, and creative resource for special occasion photography.

I can't say enough about Rachelle, she is an amazing photographer, has a beautiful eye, and is THE NICEST person. She shot our wedding this past June, and I can't even tell you, that girl works her tail off! She loves weddings, and she loves people, and she will infuse your day with her spirit and enthusiasm, as well as take hundreds and hudreds of amazing pictures. We can almost relive the whole wedding in our pictures, it's like she knew just which ones to take. She is creative as well as is a great technical photographer, but more than anything else, I just think she understands people, and knows how to take the best pictures for whoever she is shooting. The only bad thing about Rachelle is that you will want to hang out with her at your wedding, and the girl will not stop working! If you want a great photographer, that will put you at ease and let you know that she's got it all handled, hire Rachelle, you will not regret it.

Engagement and wedding photos are a huge part of the whole vision when you are getting married, and Rachelle is one of the best photographers you can call on to make that vision come to life. From start to finish, Rachelle made sure that our day ran smoothly and that everyone was where they needed to be for pictures. What I loved most about her being there to capture our big day, is that she finds a way to sneak and capture a moment that no one was supposed to see, and the picture turns out to be stunning. I loved working with Rachelle so much because she doesn’t treat you like another client; you are instantly another friend. It’s a very warm and friendly environment and your comfort is instant, and that reflects in your pictures. You know you have a great photographer when you have hundreds of prints and you can’t decide which ones to use in a photo album. Rachelle takes a fantastic photo every time! I would recommend Rachelle to anyone; I just love her! Her style is amazing, her work ethic is phenomenal, and her personality is enchanting. Thank you Rachelle for everything…you’re simply the best!

2011 was an amazing year for our family. We got married, our goddaughter got married and then our son got married. Rachelle was there to capture every moment! We met her earlier in the year at a bridal show and immediately connected with her. She took the time to get to know each one of us during our engagement photo shoots which helped her put together an incredible wedding day photo plan. We had weddings on an outside lawn, the next one in a hotel and the last one on top of a building – they were all perfectly captured by the expert behind the lense.

Rachelle went above and beyond all expectations. She was always on time, friendly, professional, easy to talk to, able to connect with both the wedding guests and bridal party and totally put the nervous bride and groom at ease. I really hate having my picture taken but I actually bent for Rachelle since she made it so painless. She kept reminding me it was my day to shine and even though I clowned around a bit, she caught so many beautiful moments that I couldn’t help but cry . . . they were PERFECT! And she made me look sooooo good! You couldn’t go wrong with her as your photographer. Believe me you will get much more than you expect – in value, commitment, quality and expertise – she’s amazing!

Rachelle is so upbeat, and anyone can tell that she really loves photography. With all the commotion and changes of our wedding, Rachelle was very flexible and was able to work with anything that happened. She also listened to all the picture ideas I had and brought many of her own ideas too. We were never in short supply of picture opportunities. I'm so glad Rachelle was able to shot our wedding and our engagement session. Thanks again.

Not only did I enjoy my pictures as a keep-sake, but I also enjoyed them as beautiful pieces of art. My photos were so much more than a way to remember my day; she captured moments and emotions that I didn’t even realize I felt at the time, but now seem so obvious through the pictures. I was completely happy, and you can see it in my pictures. She listened to what I wanted and took it into account. She was as concerned with genuine emotion and candid photos as I was and did a great job giving me what I wanted. She has a recognizable style and editing.

My wedding day was one of the happiest days of my life, and I am glad that Rachelle was a part of it. Rachelle was everything I wanted in a photographer. She is very sweet and easy to work with. She helped my wedding day go smoothly and was accommodating no matter what came up, and believe me, a lot came up! Although I worried about everything else, I never had to worry about what was going to happen to my photos because Rachelle was always there ready to calm my anxiety and answer all my questions. If I got to do it all over again, there is no way I would change my photographer!
Thank you Rachelle. You’re the best!

We loved having Rachelle Erickson as our engagement and wedding photographer. Rachelle brought a great level of enthusiasm and fun to both of these important events. Rachelle had good ideas for our engagement shoot including a tandem bicycle and an English picnic, which she worked around with professionalism. While the light was fading, she managed to get some beautiful shots of us, that we will undoubtedly keep forever. Rachelle also did a great job on our wedding day. She was well organized and ready for everything the day was to hold. She achieved exactly what you would want from a wedding day, grasping all of the key moments throughout our special day. Rachelle blended in especially well during the ceremony, we didn't even know she was there, until we saw the pictures afterward! Rachelle delivered the photos to us in a timely manner, and they were a joy to look at on returning from our honeymoon in Jamaica. Thank you Rachelle!
