Rachel did great job. She helped rally everyone together, when relatives were trying to chat and walk away during photos. She was direct, but polite and professional. Here pictures turned out beautiful and were delivered to us sooner than we expected. AND compared to many other photographers we interviewed, she was definitely the best value.

We loved working with Rachel. She was easy going and had great ideas to help make our wedding day perfect. She really understood our wedding style and what types of photos we were looking for. I loved seeing our sneak peek album 3 days after our wedding, and we received the disk of all our photos 2.5 weeks later! I would highly recommend Rachel as a great, local photographer!

Rachel is AMAZING. She was fantastic when shooting both our engagement and wedding photos. With both sets of photos we were provided with sneak peeks a couple of days after she took them and they were beautiful. Our wedding photos are absolutely gorgeous and there are more than 2,000 of them. Rachel is incredibly responsive, answered all of our crazy questions and managed to take all of the family photos we needed with two sets of divorced parents. She also got all the little details. Everyone who has seen our wedding photos also sings her praises -- and we couldn't agree more!

Rachel runs a top-notch service. My daughter found her on the net...so I was a little anxious--but she quickly built my confidence and trust in her services. Rachel is willing to do the extra above and beyond her photography. We had a difficult day to adventure into DC on a limo run---Rachel was willing to squish into an old time cramped car and she was a huge help to where to go, who needs permits, and great parking spots for the limo. She also called to cue us into the couples arrival at the reception site. All those extras in helping to make our day smoother is where she earned my trust and confidence. At the church and reception, I was used to photographers "being in your face" --poising people, jumping up on chairs, standing in front of guests--not w/ Rachel. She quietly and efficiently is taking pictures without interrupting the event. Her manner was so pleasant, we enjoyed her being around, she felt like another guest at our party--and she was always patient, never pushy and receptive to our ideas of --"hey this would make a neat picture."
Now, as for the END PRODUCT! We are absolutely WOWED!!! She surprised us with pictures back w/in a few days for us to see. She is one talented photographer--- the work is everything from poised to artsy, color to black and white/sepia, to capturing the fun at the party, to the glimpses of love being shared between our young bride and groom. She really captured the essence of our whole event and seemed to snap everyone to their best advantage!
Can't go wrong w/ Rachel and RMS photography! I'd hire her a gain in a heartbeat!
I can't wait to see the final portfolio of pictures--we know we won't be disappointed!

We absolutely loved working with Rachel! All of our photos are amazing and we appreciated how quickly she posted "sneak peeks" of our engagement and wedding photos on her website that we could share with friends. Since we were married on a Friday and did a reception the next day, we asked Rachel if she could send us a couple photos that we could print and display for friends and family. She sent us photos that very night so that we had plenty of time. Reception attendees commented that she wasn't obtrusive and took group photos and individual candid shots with professionalism and a sense of humor. My (now!) husband dislikes having his picture taken and Rachel was fabulous with getting great photos of him and us that we now have to cherish forever. We highly recommend RMN Photography!

My husband's and my overall experience with Rachel was top notch -- not only were her services/photos impeccable, but her warmth and easy-going nature made our wedding day (and the planning before it!) a very good experience. We interviewed quite a few photographers before meeting/deciding on Rachel, doing research online and asking friends in the area who they used. We went with Rachel for two main reasons: 1) Her photos are stunning, both candid and more "posed." We not only loved her samples online, but also what she showed us in sample albums when we met her in person; and 2) Her price point. The package she offered that INCLUDED prints (very hard to find in the DC/NOVA area) were unbeatable. Further, my husband and I were impressed when our photo DVDs were shipped to us just 2 weeks after our wedding in early May. Based on what we'd heard from friends who had recently got married, we anticipated a month (at least) of waiting time. As expected, the photos were gorgeous -- Rachel captured our day perfectly. We would certainly hire Rachel if we had to do it all over again. To us, what's important from a vendor are his/her personal touches, and showing that your wedding isn't just "another wedding," but something they also think is special. The morning of our wedding, Rachel was so helpful - she put boutonnieres on the groomsmen; carefully took my wedding dress out of its garment bag to begin taking pictures as the ladies were busy getting ready; and, most importantly, checked in as the morning progressed to make sure we were on schedule (it's so easy to let time slip away as you're enjoying your big day!). After the ceremony, Rachel rode in the wedding party limo to take pictures around DC -- on top of taking beautiful shots, she was so much fun to have along for the ride! On your wedding day, you want to enjoy every last minute, not only with your family and friends but also with those you hire to capture your day -- Rachel did just that, and more.

I could not be happier with Rachel's product! She is warm, friendly and passionate about her work, and gave us the best service on our wedding day. She has a unique style of photography that I loved, which is one of the main reasons we chose her to be our wedding photographer. It also helped that her prices are very reasonable! When we got the proofs back, we could not be happier! She made us look amazing. I would definitely recommend her to friends.

Rachel is the best! Not only do I love her style of photography and the pictures she took at our wedding, she helped me so much throughout the planning process and the wedding day itself. Rachel walked through our entire wedding day timeline. We have so many family members, and so many pictures to take, in not enough time. But Rachel scheduled it all out, to the minute, and it worked. She was really flexible with me and our time -- and everything turned out really lovely. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!

I was super pleased working with Rachel. She did our engagement photos and our wedding. We brought our daughter to our engagement photos, and she wasn't in the best mood. Rachel went with the flow and made sure we still got great photos. The photos turned out great! During the wedding planning, Rachel provided great tips and was always responsive. On the wedding day, she showed up early and was patient as the timeline wasn't going as planned. I was SUPER stressed and Rachel was able to calm my nerves and promise we would get all the photos we wanted. She worked right through the schedule changes and made sure we got everything we wanted. She was fun with our bridal party and we have gotten so many compliments from our "sneak preview". Rachel also is very affordable and let's you make three different payments to spread the cost out. This was very helpful as weddings are expensive!

Rachel was great. We chose her because our friends had used her for their wedding and loved the pictures. She has a great personality that makes you feel at ease. She was totally willing to go along with some of the silly ideas we suggested for photos, and we got a great variety of shots, particularly dance shots and some fun group photos.

I loved working with Rachel Naft. She was punctual, professional and FUN. She was very organized and open to my ideas as well! Before the wedding, she had us fill us all the combinations of pictures we wanted family, step-parents, kids, etc. It was time consuming but definitely made pictures go a lot smoother. As time was getting close and closer to the wedding, I would send her little ideas of pictures I wanted. She was very accepting to the ideas and also added her touches as well. It's a stressful day, but taking pictures is definitely one of the highlights and memorable parts of the day. I loved how she put a sneak peak on her facebook page and I would send the link to my family and friends. She made the pictures enjoyable and I would definitely recommend her!

Rachel and RMN Photography was amazing to work with. Rachel took time to answer my questions and meet prior to the wedding to understand the day and cultural events tied to the wedding. Rachel also was able to be flexible with our large wedding party and family picture requirements and suggest such amazing shots prior to the reception. Not only does she have an amazing attitude and talent, but she is also fast with the product and has such high quality... we received the Sneak Peak and full set of pictures all under 10 days! To top off all these great qualities, RMN is also by FAR the most reasonable price we came across and the best quality. We would recommend Rachel and RMN for any events in which you need a photographer.

Rachel was so great to work with. She took time to ask me what kind of photos I wanted, ask questions about family dynamics, and offer her suggestions. Even though it rained almost all day on our wedding day, Rachel still got some beautiful pictures. She kept everything on our determined schedule and took a lot of great posed and candid shots. She was very flexible and not pushy on the day of about getting x-number of shots-she went by what my husband and I wanted. Highly recommend!

Rachel was my favorite vendor. Her photos were absolutely outstanding. She was great with the kids and had great suggestions to maximize her time when we were ahead of schedule. In the end, we got many more photos than expected and have received lots of complements. She excels in both the formal/traditional portraits and the casual photos. Even people who are traditionally anti-photo looked great in her photos. The online photo gallery was up in well less than a week and the pictures were delivered in 2 weeks. I cannot recommend Rachel enough and plan to use her for other events in the future.

We used Rachel for our engagement pics and wedding. I have a very nerdy husband that hates to take pictures yet she managed to make him feel confortable to take great pictures. We still have friends commenting on our engagement pics eventhough it was over 3 months now. We are currently waiting for our wedding pics and i know i don't have to stressed. She takes great pictures. Our wedding was only 5 hours long and she actually had a package that was the exact thing we wanted. We plan on using Rachel when we get pregnant and of family pictures. She provides a first look on her FB a week after the wedding and then a week later on a DVD. We liked we had full control to print out the pictures or send to family. We can't wait to order oour photo album from Rachel.

We had so many incredible shots to choose from and everyone who attended was prominently featured. I can't say enough about what a dream Rachel was, her work is amazing and her warm personality added so much to an already wonderful day.

Rachel was an amazing photographer for our wedding! She was so comfortable to work with, and did an awesome job directing everyone and making sure the photos all turned out beautifully. Her work with light is spectacular -- I have several professional photographer friends who commented on how beautiful the lighting and angles are in our photos. Before the wedding, she was extremely helpful in getting us organized and making sure we got all of the photos we wanted on our list. She was very easy to get in touch with, flexible in setting meetings, and wonderful to work with. We didn't have to worry about a thing on our wedding day. Our preview photos are all gorgeous. We can't wait to see the rest of the photos and our albums! She is an absolute gem, and I absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer.

We had Rachel Naft of RMN photography do both our engagement and wedding photos, and we have been extremely pleased with what she's given us. She was professional, attentive, and we already have ten of her photographs hanging up in our hallway.

Our wedding was right by the water in Annapolis, and the colors of the sky and water were really vibrant, with some shots almost over-saturated and others with a more muted, classy look. She takes a lot of photographs with a variety of lenses, so if you like the way a shot is framed, there will probably be one with the perfect smile or gesture. I'd absolutely recommend Rachel for anyone's wedding.

Rachel did a fantastic job photographing our big day. From our initial consultation, she was professional, informative, and enthusiastic about working with us. We worked together to develop a list of "must have" shots for the wedding day (family, college friends, work friends, etc), which is super useful, as the day of the event is super hectic and those types of things can easily be overlooked. She has a great eye for the types of shots that will look good in pictures and is a pro at getting everyone to look natural in their shots. The posed shots were great, but my favorite pictures were the candid ones that really captured the emotions and essence of the day. She seamlessly blends into the event, almost to the point of being invisible while capturing awesome shots.

Within a few days, I had 100 preview photos delivered. Two weeks after the event, she had posted all of the photos and sent a CD of all images. She offers album-making services as well, which I will be using.

Overall, Rachel is a fantastic photographer, and I highly recommend her for any wedding or event!

Rachel was an absolutely wonderful photographer to work with. I initially met with her because of her much more affordable rates, and when I saw her in person the deal was sealed by her portfolio. I appreciated, too, her payment schedule - 1/3 as a deposit, 1/3 at the wedding, and 1/3 after you receive the photos. (I'm still waiting on the final CD, but I'm SO pleased with the "sneak peek.")
Some photographers can be very pushy and insistent on getting certain shots - Rachel was not. I told her we didn't want to spend a huge amount of time during the cocktail hour taking pictures, because we wanted to mingle with our guests. She respected our timing and didn't try to push tons of photos we didn't want. She also produces great quality work on her own. Some photographers will insist on having an assistant (which can raise the price significantly), but Rachel didn't miss a beat.
My ONLY qualm was that I had requested for her to not be at the front of the church during the ceremony - she ended up getting one shot as my father walked me down the aisle, but otherwise respected our request and only took pictures from the back.
I am so pleased with the pictures I've seen so far though, and can't believe I got them at such an affordable price. Yes, you can find affordable photographers that will only give you 4 hours of photos - but Rachel was there for the whole day. She handled last-minute large family photo requests with patience, had a wonderful blend of color and B&W shots, and was friendly the whole time. She was great!

RMN came highly recommended from a co-worker and once I saw her engagement photos, I knew I wanted to book RMN. We met with Rachel at her office and she showed us some samples of her work and my husband was impressed with everything. Although we had originally decided to skip engagement photos, we booked a session with her anyways and are SO glad we did. We were a little nervous since we had never had professional photos taken but Rachel made us both feel very comfortable during the engagement shoot and the pictures turned out better than I could have imagined. Some of the best shots were the ones where she joked around with us and got us to laugh and feel relaxed.
We received our wedding sneak peek photos last week and are thrilled with what we've seen so far and have received a lot of compliments from friends and family. Again, she made us feel relaxed even though we were running late due to a late starting ceremony but she managed to stay on top of things and get in all the shots we wanted and she accommodated some photos I wanted of certain groups of friends. I highly recommend her to any bride/groom wanting quality photos from a very talented photographer. She's amazing. Thank you Rachel for all your great work and I look forward to working with you again!

We hired Rachel because we heard only positive feedback from two of our friends that hired her. We never even met her before we signed the contract, but her professionalism, responsiveness and friendliness in her emails, plus her great gallery that you can find on her facebook page was all we needed. Most wedding photographers packages start off twice as much as Rachel's, but Rachel does just of good as a job as they do. The most important part I think of her packages, which I think many other photographers don't offer, is that she gives you all of the digitals on CD. Rachel was great to work with on the day of, handled all of our requests perfectly, and dealt with all the hiccups exactly as we would have wanted. Definitely recomment Rachel!

Rachel Naft is a superb photographer with an eye for detail and an artistic touch. My husband and I were fortunate to book her for our wedding and we could not be happier. We booked Rachel for a February wedding and did not know until that afternoon how the weather would turn. It ended up being sunny and just over 15 degrees Fahrenheit with wind chill. My husband and I decided to make the most of our special moment and spent over an hour outside walking the grounds at Meadowlark to get the best wedding photos possible. Despite the cold, Rachel worked with us the entire time with absolute professionalism and good cheer. Not only that, but she also managed to get stunning pictures that captured the beauty of a sunny wintry day. The time we spent outdoors was well worth it. Rachel took amazing shots that will be up in our home for years to come.
Do everything you can to book her. It will be worth it.

I cannot say enough about Rachel and the pictures she takes!! My husband and I used her for our wedding and engagement pictures and they were amazing! She had photographed several of my friends weddings so I knew in advance how wonderful her work was, but I could not fathom how great she'd make the two of us look! =)

She was so professional and fun to be around both during our engagement session and on the wedding day. She captured so many of the sweet and fun moments we would have missed or forgotten about otherwise. She has the ability to blend in to the point you wonder how she was able to get "that shot" when you didn't even realize she was around.

She was absolutely fantastic! We have already talked about using her for a family photo shoot in the future!!

Hiring Rachel Naft was one of the best wedding decisions we made. Not only is she a phenomenal photographer, but she was a pleasure to work with -- she gave directions without issuing any orders, and created what are probably the best photos of my husband and me that have ever been taken.

Right away, we knew that Rachel was a find. While other photographers we considered arrived at our meetings with carefully curated albums of their best work, Rachel shared with us untouched prints from a recent wedding (I was quite surprised to find out they were raw photos!), in addition to a larger portfolio of her work. She was very professional, and actually took notes during our meeting. Rachel's pricing is incredibly reasonable, and she's willing to customize packages to make sure your needs are covered. In terms of communication, Rachel was very responsive to my emails and always willing to offer suggestions and answer questions. A few days after our engagement session and wedding, a sneak peek of our photos were posted online, and we received discs of the images shortly thereafter.

Honestly, all you need to do is look at Rachel's photographs to see just how talented she is. Her style is photojournalistic; she takes wonderful candids and detail shots of all the little things that make your wedding yours. Looking back through our photos, I'm amazed at how well Rachel captured the emotions and essence of the day, and I know that we will enjoy her work for years to come.

Rachel was absolutely amazing and the best wedding decision I made! I have received so many compliments on both my engagement and wedding photos. I interviewed several other photographers and her prices were also the best in the area. She did so many stunning bridal portraits and gorgeous couple photographers in the evening. I am thrilled with how all of the photos turned out.

She went above and beyond her job as a photographer on the wedding day and helped me stay calm when we were running a little late in the beginning. I barely noticed she was there at all during the reception and she did a great job of taking couple portraits at several different locations before the ceremony and throughout the evening. I would hire her again in a heart beat!

She made sure that all of the important shots were taken (including many that we forgot to think of!) and navigated our schedule, families, and the site skillfully. Her photos were beautiful and creative. We highly recommend her!

We first did an engagement shoot with Rachel in Washington, DC and found her very easy to work with. I grew up taking portraits every year, like a good southern child, but my fiancee was less comfortable in front of a camera. He liked Rachel and her style of direction and felt very comfortable with her, which showed in the pictures. They were beautiful. We then asked her to come to Alabama to shoot our wedding. She was ready to go the moment she arrived, was very professional, and always looking for a great shot. She made suggestions for rearranging the shot list when we got behind schedule, which kept me calm and still got us the photos we wanted. As I requested, our photos were a great blend of formal group shots, couple portraits, and candids of people enjoying our wedding. The salon where we got ready and our wedding planner both wanted Rachel's information because they found her easy to work with, responsive, and professional. Rachel posted a Sneak Peek of our photos on Facebook 5 days after the wedding, and we got our full set of wedding photos back less than two weeks after the wedding. The images are beautiful and we look forward to working with her to build albums for our families and ourselves. Friends, family, and co-workers have been telling my mother and me repeatedly and without prompting how wonderful the photos are.

Hire RMN Photography immediately. Don't wait. If you hesitate, she'll be gone before you know it, and believe me, you want her to photograph your wedding.

Rachel's work is extraordinary. The technical quality of her photographs is unbeatable--her ability to fine-tune the colors of photographs ever so slightly to create a different look for the same shot, the angles she chooses to shoot from, the creative poses she comes up with, all of these things and more result in beautiful photos. They don't look touched-up: they look just like you, but at your very best.

But you'll want her for more than just her photos. Working with Rachel is a delight. She is just as excited as you when it comes to making your wedding day a success. She spends as much time as you need to go over all the details, leaving nothing out. You never have to worry if she knows what she's doing--she has it down cold.

Another plus for a photographer: you don't even notice she's there. She makes herself invisible, and you are not at all distracted. I completely forgot about her until it was time for the posed pictures. She slips in and out, getting the best shots without disrupting the goings-on.

Bottom line--in 5, 10 years, you won't remember what songs the DJ played. You won't remember what kind of sauce was on the chicken. But you will have amazing photographs that remind you of just how happy the day was, and that you can cherish forever.

Rachel was excellent! We spent a lot of time looking for a photographer and had narrowed it down to Rachel and a husband/wife team. We decided to go with Rachel because at our first meeting she showed up dressed professionally and with a variety of albums showcasing her work. I felt confident that I was dealing with someone who took her job seriously. My new mother-in-law and several friends commented on how nice and helpful she was during the wedding. She was even understanding and complied when I asked for our preview pictures to not be on FB. Our pictures were ready to view shortly after we returned from our week long honeymoon, and the disk arrived a week later. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. I cannot say enough nice things about Rachel! Oh, and did I mention that out of 1,400 pictures I don't think there was one bad picture!!

We're so happy with our decision to hire Rachel to photograph our son's wedding! She combines a great artistic eye, a relaxed and easy-going temperament, incredible stamina (even in what felt like 100% humidity) and tremendous professionalism and efficiency. Working closely with our day-of coordinator, she helped keep everyone on schedule and moving in the right direction, dealt diplomatically with requests for additional family-group photos beyond those on "the list" and caught so many beautiful moments ... as well as every detail of the MANY personal touches my son and his bride planned for their celebration. Her unobtrusive approach and photojournalistic style were exactly what we were looking for: she got wonderful candid shots, and she's a genius at capturing personalities in her photos. (She was also one of the few photographers we spoke with who was willing to share with us *full* shoots of several different weddings, not just the images she deemed portfolio-quality.)

Less than a week after the wedding, we received an incredible 90-photo "sneak peek" online. As excited as we are to see the rest — and we're VERY excited — there are so many wonderful images in this first batch that we'd probably be happy even if that's all there were.

We're so happy with our decision to hire Rachel to photograph our son's wedding! She combines a great artistic eye, a relaxed and easy-going temperament, incredible stamina (even in what felt like 100% humidity) and tremendous professionalism and efficiency. Working closely with our day-of coordinator, she helped keep everyone on schedule and moving in the right direction, dealt diplomatically with requests for additional family-group photos beyond those on "the list" and caught so many beautiful moments ... as well as every detail of the MANY personal touches my son and his bride planned for their celebration.

Rachel is extremely friendly, professional and talented. She was very responsive to email and took the time to meet us and show us many examples of her work before we signed on with her. She also is able to adjust her photography style to your needs and personalities - understanding some people are looking for silly vs. formal. She has a great eye for interesting shots that make taking all those photos fun! On our wedding day, Rachel was a dream with our loud, large New York families. She kept us on schedule, but got all the shots we asked for. During the ceremony and reception, I hardly remember her being there, but she was clearly in the thick of everything as we later saw in the photos! She sent a sample of about 30 photos just a couple days after the wedding, and then we got all the digital photos to us within a week and a half of the wedding. All of the shots felt personal, as if someone in the family took them. She does not heavily edit them but does add effects to view similar shots in a few different ways. Thanks for everything, Rachel!

Rachel was an amazing photographer for our wedding. She kept all my family organized (which isn't an easy task) and was able to get our photos done in a very efficient manner. She also did an engagement shoot for us and we could not be happier with all our pictures. She had a sneak peak of our pictures up within days of our wedding! She is an amazing photographer and I highly recommend her.

Rachel is AMAZING! We booked her 1.5 years before our wedding and it was worth it. I had guests in the professional photography business come up to me to say how amazing she was.

We had a Catholic mass and she was very respectful and quiet. Its amazing to look back at the pictures and realize she was EVERYWHERE but no one noticed! Rachel listened to my laundry list of pictures and then some. I don't think her finger stopped clicking the camera once in the 8 hours she was working.

Rachel is extremely professional. We got our pictures (over 2000!) within a few weeks. I plan to use her in the future for family photo shoots too!

If I could give Rachel more stars, I totally would! A wedding photographer was something we researched for MONTHS before we made a decision and we know for a fact we made wonderful decision. Rachel is so talented and just a NICE, fun person to be around! You feel like you've known her forever and that is important when this person is with you for 8-9 hours on one of the most important days of your life! She got my sneak peeks to me in just over a week after the wedding and I just received my complete wedding pictures on a disc just three weeks after the wedding. I am so thrilled with the pictures and my new husband and I cannot pick out a "bad" picture out of the nearly 1800+ she took that day. She's making it so hard to choose pictures for our album :-)~ Everyone that came across Rachel had nothing but great things to say about her--she was everywhere yet you never noticed her! I was thrilled to see all these pictures of things I missed as the day flew by in a blur. She knows all the little tricks to make you look your best--turn your hips out a little more, tilt your chin down a bit lol. She is super responsive, professional but best of all, just a pleasant, calming person to be around. We would/am recommending her to other couples and I think her photography speaks for herself. She's so busy but you can tell she takes real pride in her work and you never feel like you are just another couple. I could go on and on about her! :-)))))))))

I had found Rachel online, and with only 2 months remaining until the wedding day! We had previously had a photographer with whom we had done engagement photos, and thought we were all set for the wedding, but we ultimately found them unreliable and had to scramble. We were so fortunate that Rachel was available that day! During our first meeting she was very personable, outgoing, but more importantly listened to our preferences for photography. My husband is not one for posing for photos, so right from the start she understood that we wanted really natural, unobtrusive photos. She arrived on the day of the wedding and started working! She had the groom and his party really having a great time during their session, as did the bridal party. Even though she didn't have an assistant, she was efficient and coordinated to jump between the two parties beforehand. She worked around the fairly strict rules of our Catholic church and still managed to get some great shots during the ceremony. Afterwards, she was efficient about the posed group photos, and lastly, captured some amazing spontaneous photos of the reception and dance party that ensued. It was a pleasure working with Rachel and the fact that here rates were more reasonable than most was just a bonus! Thanks again for the priceless memories!!!

My husband and I loved working with Rachel! She is so FUN! We loved her creativity and her personality so much. She came highly recommended, having already photographed the weddings of four of my friends (soon to be five!). What drew to me Rachel was the fact that I didn't remember SEEING her at those weddings. She was discreet but got the job done! We had a general idea of what we wanted but nothing rigidly set in stone so it was great to have her experience as our guide. Our family and friends enjoyed her personality and professionalism during our bridal party portraits. One of our groomsmen said he planned on contacting her for some family portraits later this year. Her prices are a welcome sight considering the DC area, too!

In addition to being a talented photographer, Rachel was extremely professional and easy to work with -- she was good natured and willing to traipse all over the National Mall getting various photos.

Where do I begin? Rachel definitely gets a 5 out of 5 in every category! She's so professional, so talented, so friendly. She blended right in with my family and friends during the wedding and the photos were BEAUTIFUL!

From the moment my husband and I met her, we knew she was our photographer-- it was her positive attitude that sold us. We had about 180 guests and she shot everything on her own with no assistant and didn't miss a THING!

I loved her editing and how she maximized our tricky indoor lighting, and she really knows how to showcase people of color in her photos (which was important to us). We were married in an office building which was beautifully decorated inside, but pretty boring outside-- but Rachel scouted photo op locations for us beforehand and made it work! She made a brick wall look like a wedding mag editorial shoot! Choose her for your wedding photography and you won't regret it!!!

In addition to taking very classic-looking and beautiful photos, Rachel is the kind of person you want to be around. She has a very calming effect on you (which is exactly what a stressed out bride needs!). She is professional, thoughtful, creative, and punctual. She could charge three times as much for her expertise, but she doesn't. My husband and I are going to use her for our first set of family photos!

Rachel was awesome! When we started looking for a wedding photographer, we realized that there were two things that were most important for us:

1. Personal connection
2. Quality of pictures

We met about 4-5 photographers and as soon as we met Rachel, we knew that we both liked her a lot. We still wanted to do our due diligence and as we had thought, ended up asking her to shoot our wedding and engagement pictures. Here are some of the things why we rate her services so highly:

1. Quality of pictures: Rachel asked us for our preference, i.e. what kind of pictures we liked and were comfortable taking. Besides that, she suggested what she thought would make for great pictures. When we saw the results from our engagement and wedding pictures, we could not have been happier. My wife still believes that hiring her was the best decision. We have also gotten a lot of compliments on our pictures from a lot of people (from all walks of life).

2. Her personality: She is very laid back and not a control freak. She never rushed us and was very patient with our friends and family. We also appreciate her taking control of things during the time between wedding and reception. She was not only getting people together and organized, but also made sure that no one was getting late and we were getting the most from the limited time we all had. Although not her job, she helped out with directions and was just great.

3. Communication/Responsiveness: We had no problems getting in touch with her. Since we live in a different city, a lot of our communication was over email. However, this was never an impediment.

We both highly recommend Rachel. Weddings end up being a more stressful than they should be. It is great when you have the right people there. With Rachel we were always certain that she would take great pictures.

Rachel was a pleasure to work with. She took nearly 1,500 photos at our wedding and they all look beautiful. She captured all the feelings and memories in the photos and did them in a variety of color, black and white, and vintage looks. She was very flexible, even when our timeline didn't go according to our plans. We had to do the wedding inside the hotel because of the heat, but she found some great photo spots inside. She did a great job working with the rowdy groomsmen! I received the pictures online just after returning from the honeymoon. I highly recommend Rachel!

Many of my guests expressed how wonderful she was and she blended in so well at the wedding. She took 1000+ pictures and I didn’t even realize she was snapping pictures! Also, I am not the greatest at posing and taking pictures and her direction was awesome! She also, stayed on my timeline and even helped me stay on track with making sure I got all the pictures I wanted.

Her turnaround time is impressive - we got our pictures within 2 weeks. She is very responsive and I truly felt like she cared about us having a wonderful wedding and beautiful pictures. If you are looking for a professional and personable wedding photographer who will take amazing pictures - Rachel is it - she will not disappoint! :-)

"Rachel, Marques and I love you". You have been blessed with an amazing and unique talent to capture wonderful photos. You continue to impress me with your artistic eye, creative ideas and suggestions in making a photo extra special. I remember when Marques and I were photographed for our Engagement Pictures at the National Arboretum and you told us to do many movements to make our pictures even more beautiful. We have recieved and continue to recieve compliments about our engagement pictures thanks to you.

Rachel, you were simply awesome during the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, you made sure to capture every single photo I requested and still wanted to make sure that you had gotten all the pic's that we requested before you departed the venue. I am so glad that Marques and I found you on Wedding Wire. You were the pefect match for us and I am glad that you were there to be a part of our special day.

Looking forward to working with you again!

Rachel was by far the best vendor we had for our wedding. We planned our wedding from a distance and met with her once. She stayed in contact with us and kept us on task before the wedding. She also kept us on task during the wedding, fit into the mix well, and was very professional. On top of all that, the pictures are amazing! Planning a wedding can be very stressful, but having a vendor like Rachel, that can be counted on, brought a sense of ease to the event.

I found Rachel after hearing so many great things about her on the Knot forums. I had met with many other photographers before I met with Rachel, and when I met her I knew that she was the one. Her personality was very much a huge part of my decision, but her work is absolutely amazing. The stories she tells through her photography just blew me away on her website and in her sample albums. I was so glad that she had my wedding date available (although I did book her over a year in advance), so I reserved the date right away. Rachel showed up exactly on time. She took over 1200 pictures through the day and we receieved our photos online in 8 days. The disk came shortly after. Her communication is excellent through email. Many guests at my wedding told me how much they loved my photographer. The pictures turned out amazing and I can't wait to see what the album will be like. Her prices are very reasonable. I would HIGHLY recommend Rachel to anyone as their wedding photographer.

She is easy going, fun to work with, and professional. Her packages are reasonably priced. The wedding album she designed for us turned out wonderful and we will cherish our beautiful photographs for years to come.

Rachel is a outstanding photographer, very professional and easy to work with (before, during and after the wedding). She was very helpful posing, arranging and making sure eveyone looked their best- from the shy little flowergirl to the not-so-shy groomsmen. The pictures came out PHENOMENAL- she has a great eye and didn't miss a single shot. I couldn't have asked for anything more- she even had the pictures to us long before the contractual 60 days. Her online galleries speak for themselves, but in addition, she is person you can trust on your wedding day to make sure things go as they should.

On the big day she did such a great job of making me and the rest of our family and bridal party feel totally at ease. She completely understood my vision of how I wanted our photos to feel, and came up with so many great ideas. The finished product is just amazing, and the price is a steal compared to the exorbitant rates most other DC area photographers charge for much lower quality pictures.

I can not say enough about the positive experience we had with Rachel! From our first meeting, she was approachable, professional, and very reassuring, which was extremely important for me, as I really don't like having my photograph taken. She really listened to us about which shots were important to us and gave good advice about how we could fit everything we wanted into the day. On the day of the wedding, she arrived early and took amazing photos all day long. Our guests were very impressed by how professional and unobtrusive she was during the event, yet she managed capture everything important!

After the wedding, her follow up was awesome. I had mentioned that I was still considering creating parent albums, so she sent me a reminder a few months after the wedding so I could take advantage of a discount offered by the printer. I thought I might do an album on Snapfish or something similar, but I am so glad that we had Rachel do the design--the parent albums are so beautiful, my mom carries hers everywhere! I could never have done something that professional myself, and Rachel made the design process very straightforward.

All in all, we couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. We highly recommend Rachel Naft for any special event--she's a great value for a great price!

She was all over the wedding and reception, and got pictures of everyone. She took tons of pictures, and they look gorgeous! She made sure we got all of the "must have" photos on our list, and she was really creative with other photos as well. We are so happy with our photos and with Rachel. We will definitely use her again for our next special occasion.

Rachel was absolutely fantastic! I couldn't even begin to think of one thing negative to say. Rachel did a bang-up job and took over 2000+ photographs for the evening, which is an amazing job to do for one photographer.

Rachel is very personable and easy to work with. Beforehand we coordinated the must have photographs, but afterwards you wouldn't have even noticed she was there.

Rachel is great value with regard to the service and final products you receive!
I received the online portfolio by the time I got back from my honeymoon and am in process of ordering a few albums now.

The best part was she was never in the way and managed to get all the important pictures without disrupting the experience. Her quality and artistic creativity were amazing. Someone from work had used her and I looked through all of the pictures and knew right away she was the photographer for our wedding. I was not dissappointed. She was helpful and professional. It was great to work with her and I could not be happier with the finished product.

She's great although she made me get my dress dirty! No seriously she finds the best most unusual and unique places to shoot pictures. She thought I places at the vineyard I would have never even thought of and they all turned out great. We also used her for our engagement pics and will use her for our trash the dress session too. She has a way of setting you at ease and during the wedding I have proof she was everywhere, 100s of pics, but she was never in the way or obvious. She was also one of the easiest vendors to deal.

I simply cannot say enough about Rachel. My sister hired her for our courthouse wedding in Rockville, MD last year (2009), and we were so thoroughly impressed and in love with her style and personality that we hired her for our full-fledged reception in Santa Monica, CA this year. It was the best decision I have ever made.

Long before she picked up her camera, Rachel sought out our wishes and put together a mental picture of what we wanted to capture on our wedding day. Her singular punctuality, compassion, diligence, and follow-through make her a hands-down dream to work with. From the first email asking her about her prices and availability to the last picture she took at the reception, Rachel was just as I remembered her a year before: genuinely friendly, incredibly flexible, consistently sensitive to our needs. She was the only non-CA based vendor flying in for the wedding, and yet she was the first to arrive, early, on the day of!

The last person I spoke to before our ceremony was Rachel – I felt compelled to tell her that she had done more to sooth my nerves and make me happy than anyone else that day. A few hours later, when we had to abruptly change venues for our portraits and had only 45 minutes to regroup, Rachel was more concerned and committed to making sure we had our portraits than my husband and I were. She moved mountains to make us happy and never stopped smiling as she did it.

And the pictures!!

She’s like a speed of light, capturing moments – actual tangible moments – that I didn’t even realize were happening, with such unique style and character. I never imagined our pictures could look this stunning and so rich with texture and emotion. We had an ethnic ceremony without a single word of English, and it was like Rachel had done a hundred of them before – she was focused, creative, and infinitely engaged. She was front and center when we wanted a particular shot and quietly working her magic otherwise. It’s no surprise that our entire family fell in love with her by the end of the wedding. On top of it all, we received our pictures in two weeks (!!) after the wedding – I wouldn’t have believed it if she hadn’t been as quick to make them available the year before.

I had my doubts about wedding planning and dealing with vendors. But Rachel was tried and true - her unsurpassed professionalism, kindness, and talent made it more than worthwhile. If you’re looking for gorgeous wedding pictures and peace of mind before, during and after your wedding when it comes to your photographer, Rachel is for you.

Rachel is absolutely fantastic. She is personable and great to be around - very important on your wedding day! She is a very talented photographer, she took a variety of classic and candid, artsy and posed shots, and they are all wonderful - the worst part is narrowing them down to the ones we want in an album! My whole bridal party and our families really enjoyed working with her on the wedding day. One of my bridesmaids is actually going to use her for her own wedding in a few months! We got our photos very quickly - all 1600 of them! I know other couples who got married around when we did who are still waiting for their pictures. I would highly recommend Rachel to any couple looking for a talented, personable wedding photographer.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Rachel to anyone looking for an excellent wedding or special event photographer. She is so easy to get along with and makes you feel comfortable working with her. Her prices are extremely reasonable, especially for the quality of her work, and she is very accomodating and flexible (take it from me, since we had insane change-by-the-minute wedding day events due to weather and illness). Rachel was by far my most impresive wedding vendor, and I am a very particular and demanding customer. She captured so many precious moments on our wedding day, and now we have discs with 1300 high resolution images. That's right, she took 1300 pictures on our wedding day!! She is thorough, creative, and just an all-around amazing photographer. My friends and family all LOVE the pictures we gave them and those planning weddings have asked for her contact information so they can use her too! We also used Rachel for our engagement photos and are thrilled with those pictures. I would give her 6 stars out of 5 if I could!!

My husband I loved both our wedding and engagement photos. We found Rachel to be a class act from the moment we met her. During our consultation with her, she showed us an extensive portfolio and all of our pricing options. We were impressed and decided to have her take engagement and wedding photos of us. The engagement photos came back beautiful; she photographed us out at the National Arboretum and the way she worked with light and angles was spectacular. Then for our wedding ceremony/reception photos, we were equally pleased. She captured lots of details and provided both candid and modern pictures. We highly recommend RMN Photography!

SHe was responsive and helpful leading up to the wedding, and arrived on time and got straight to work. She was a pleasure to have around all day, fun, laid back and relaxed. We barely noticed her during the ceremony and then had a blast doing couple shots with her at the Bishop's Gardens. Again, barely noticed her during the reception. She was also able to wrangle our family and wedding party for all the group shots. The best part was we got the online gallery of our pictures a week after the wedding! Overall we are very pleased with our pictures. I think choosing a photographer is quite personal and depends obviously on what you're looking for and your budget. And your photographer's personality is a lot more important than I would have thought before getting into wedding planning, and he or she needs to be the right person for you and your wedding. I'm glad we chose Rachel for ours.

Rachel was great! Her pictures were amazing, because she truly loves what she does!! For what we got the price was the best I could find! We even got a CD with ALL our pictures so I can make Christmas gifts for our parents!!! She was amazing, very helpful and willing to work with me since I hate pictures of myself! She basically gave me a list of the "MUST HAVE" posed pictures and got rid of the ones that weren't essential so I didn't feel super self conscious. I have already recommended her to multiple friends who are either just starting the planning or about to get engaged. Everyone that has seen our online photo album agrees that she is extremely talented!! She was great, and I would highly recommend her!

Rachel is amazing. The day we returned from our honeymoon, just eight days after our wedding, we already have access to the 1400 pictures she had taken on our wedding day. Rachel found a way to capture every moment of the day without being intrusive at all. She knew how to get the shots we were looking for, and kept the mood light and people happy so folks didn't stiffen up during the array of formal poses. We got a little behind schedule, and Rachel sped up the process without compromising the integrity of the photos she took. She has an amazing talent of capturing the emotion behind the photo, and getting people who may not be naturally photogenic (including myself, the bride!) to relax and look amazing. I plan to use Rachel for any future photographic needs, as she is simply phenomenal.

Rachel came highly recommended, but she exceeded my expecations! Her pictures attest for the quality of her work and the end product, but they don't show you how incredible she is to work with.

Rachel was organized and easy to reach during wedding planning, and the same held true for the day of the wedding. She has a very calming presence, and was a true joy to be around (these are VERY important qualities a photographer should have, because they are going to be capturing a lot of personal and intimate moments!). My husband, our families, our wedding party, and our guests had a lot of fun with Rachel. Further, she kept us on track! Rachel was incredibly concious of the wedding day timeline I had provided to her, and made sure she was getting our requested shots while keeping our very large wedding party on schedule.

After the wedding, Rachel had our photos (all 800+ of them!) posted online within the next week. She also provided CDs and gave me the right to re-print all of her pictures. I was so happy with the photos!

Overall, I was 100% satisfied and would highly recommend her!

I love Rachel Naft! Her work is stunning. I am not the best picture-taker but she made me look absolutely beautiful. The shot of my dress hanging in the window is breath taking. The shot of our rings is stunning as well. I looked at all my pictures and there is definitely a storybook feel to the shots. I heard from so many guests about how much fun had, and when my husband and I were looking at the reception shots it was quite evident that everyone did have a wonderfully fun time. The hard part is picking the shots for an album :-) Rachel was also very responsive to my questions and emails and she made sure that she took every shot on my must-take shot list. She did an excellent job keeping us on schedule and she made sure that we had enough time to take all the group shots, while still reserving time for Sieam and I to take our couple portraits. Rachel was wonderfully polite and yet she was able to corral all the various groups of people and keep them only as long as needed. My family and my bridal party were able to enjoy some of the cocktail hour, which was also very important to us. Finally, she as enough options for every budget and she is very flexible so if there is something you really want – she can make it happen. My husband and I met Rachel and afterward our meeting we knew she was the photographer for us. I highly, highly recommend her.

Rachel was our photographer for not only our engagement photos but also our wedding! After you look through her photobooks, it's easy to see why you want to book her! Her prices were fantastic and my hubby and I really loved the photo journalistic pictures that she took. We got so many amazing shots and she uploaded our wedding images SO FAST, we got them while we were on our honeymoon! So many of our friends and family were impressed with her quality of pictures and quantity of pictures! I can't wait to pick our 100 pics from the 1700 she took which will go into our wedding book that she is making! I would definitely use her again for big events!

Rachel was a true delight to work with for our wedding photography. She was always personable, approachable, flexible, and professional. In our planning meetings, she listened to our needs and met them on the day of the wedding. We felt so at ease with having Rachel document our big day. And the pictures! They were fantastic and Rachel didn't miss a shot from my long list of details I wanted documented. Rachel also had some great ideas to give us some more artsy shots-- we look like movie stars in these pictures!!! Rachel was extremely patient and easy to work with as we developed the album and went back and forth on changes. I can't say enough good things about how willing Rachel was to make even the smallest edit as we developed the album. She was always accessible and answered our emails quickly. We are so thrilled with the final products and have received so many compliments! We highly recommend Rachel Naft for wedding photography!

I learned about Rachel from a friend at work, when I'd been complaining to her that all the really good photographers in the area were wayyyy outside our budget. My friend was right--Rachele's packages were much more reasonable (starting at $1500 and going up). Total cost for the package we got with Rachel was about half or what another local photographer offered us! We got a very robust package (including an engagement session), and also a second shooter for a few hours the day of.

What made Rachel so great to work with was that she was totally normal; since so many wedding vendors can be over-the-top, having someone around who's normal on the day of was really nice. She's definitely a lot of fun, don't get me wrong, but I think people will know what I mean. :) She was also really unobtrusive during important parts of the wedding day. I knew she was around during the ceremony, etc., but she was careful to stay around the edges, so as not to distract from the event itself. I honestly don't even remember her being there as I walked down the aisle, but she must've been, since we have photographic evidence! Also, while we only requested the second shooter for 3 hours (from getting ready through the ceremony), he stayed all night, and Rachel did not charge us for the overtime (we figure it was good experience for him?). While I wouldn't assume this is the "norm," we really appreciated the extra coverage!

Rachel was super responsive to all of our questions, and to getting stuff turned around for us. In fact, she had to pester me more often than the other way around! She was very on top of things--making sure she had a list of all the shots we wanted for the wedding day, making sure she knew which prints we wanted, etc. And we had wedding pics up online when we got back from our honeymoon, less than 2 weeks after the wedding.

Most importantly, though, the pictures she took were great. If I can ever manage to get back to her on edits for our album, I know it will be a beautiful work of art. We ended up with nearly 1500 shots from wedding day, and I had a terrible time narrowing it down to the 80ish that would fit in the album! Rachel has a good eye for portraits and details, but also got a lot of great candids. We're getting a bunch of prints from her in our package, but we also have the DVDs and printing rights, so I'll probably get about a bazillion prints online to share with friends and family!

All in all, not a single complaint! I'd highly recommend her to others, and if I ever want professional shots in the future (pregnancy, family portraits, etc.), Rachel will be tops on my list to call.

Rachel was fantastic! I would recommend her for anyone that needs a photographer for any reason.
My wedding day went very smoothly - she was on time (early even) and started taking photos from the moment she arrived. Most of the time, we didn't even know she was there, but when we did, she got along beautifully with everyone. She is so easy to work with, has a wonderful personality, and is an incredible talent. My photos (over 1200 of them!!!) are all gorgeous and I have received dozens of comments on the originality and artistic beauty of her work.
After the wedding, I recommended her to another two couples (both are using her!) and she will be doing my pregnancy photos next year.
My husband and I have decided that Rachel is our exclusive photographer for all of our life's events. I promise, you will not be dissapointed.

Rachel was fantastic! She showed up early and did a fantastic job! During the getting ready portion her personality fit in so well with my family and friends we hardly noticed that we didn't know her before that day! The portraits went so well and she came prepared with my extensive list of pictures that I wanted and executed the list with such efficiency that they were over before we realized it. During the ceremony and reception she blended right in. I was so pleased to see all the great moments that she captured. Even better, she sent us our pictures the day we got home from the honeymoon. The final result was amazing, now we have to narrow down our favorites!

Rachel was TERRIFIC! She captured our wedding perfectly. We had around 100 guests at our evening wedding. I had some concerns based on comments from others about only having one photographer present but she didn't miss a thing. Even during the posed pictures after the ceremony she was so efficient we finished in no time and could join the party! The best part about it was her ability to blend in and just capture what was going on around her and not need to stage a bunch of pictures.

I would recommend her to anyone who wants excellent photos!

Rachel is just an above-and-beyond photographer in every single way. I'm a photography buff, so I looked at many, many wedding photographer portfolios before finding Rachel. Her work is outstanding, and she runs the gamut from photojournalism to portraits to some really fun & creative stuff. We had tons of fun doing wacky poses. She was our favorite vendor to work with, hands-down. Highly, highly recommend.

I don't even know where to begin. Rachel Naft was the first photographer we met with and we just loved her right off the bat. She was down to earth yet professional and her packages offered so much at a reasonable price. She was ABSOLUTELY my savior during the whole wedding process and calmed me down on numerous occassions. Rachel was more on the ball than I was, she was CONSTANTLY in touch with me returning emails and phone calls immediately. The day of the wedding Rachel was prompt and I was the one who was 25 minutes late but she was so understanding, got me focused and we got the job done. I was a nervous wreck about everything EXCEPT for how the photos would turn out because Rachel's work just speaks for itself. During the reception, I did not see her take a break, she worked her butt off and when anything was happening at the reception she was johnny on the spot getting the picture. The guests ABSOLUTELY LOVED HER which was so important to me!! Here I am 2 months after my wedding and people are still telling me how amazing Rachel was. She has the patience of a saint and rounded up the families for pictures in a calm and assertive way. I'm sure she got frustrated at times but she never let it show. The pictures were ready online by the time we got back from our honeymoon and they were just breathtaking!!! She gave us such a beautiful variety of pictures to choose from and I am having the hardest time deciding which pictures I want. Most brides have to hound their photographers for the pictures but Rachel was the one contacting me to keep me on track. There were so many things that I was unhappy with on my wedding day except for the photography. Rachel was my saving grace - her work ethic - the quality of her pictures - her personality - her talent - I was completely blown away. I wish I could have had five Rachel's to take the place of the vendors I had then everything would have been perfect. Thank you Rachel for being a part of our day and making our memories absolutely beautiful!

I don't even know where to begin. Rachel Naft was the first photographer we met with and we just loved her right off the bat. She was down to earth yet professional and her packages offered so much at a reasonable price. She was ABSOLUTELY my savior during the whole wedding process and calmed me down on numerous occassions. Rachel was more on the ball than I was, she was CONSTANTLY in touch with me returning emails and phone calls immediately.

A+: Rachel was an absolute joy to have around in the morning and throughout the day. Her positive, calm, sweet presence was wonderful to have in the morning as we were getting ready. She risked getting yelled at by church and hotel staff for taking pictures in places they might not have liked. :-) She was also able to be commanding and authoritative for GM who were not cooperating in pictures. She did her best to take interesting pictures despite the fact we were forced to stay indoors because of the torrential rain. She took great candid photos, and we barely remember her being there; she was very discreet yet seemed to be everywhere at once. Highly recommended!

I give Rachel a 5 star on everything, except professionalism. Not becuase she wasn't professional-- actually, she was better than professional. I had some finicky bridesmaids, who hated to have their photos taken. She went beyond the call of duty to spend a few hours (2 days before the wedding) to just sit down with them, hanging out at a local cafe. She made them comfortable with her as a friend, not a "vendor" at the wedding-- it was amazing. As a result, she caught some beautiful photos of my bridesmaids acting their most natural-- so much so that one bridesmaid's mother thanked me for finally giving her a good picture of her daughter.
I absolutely recommend Rachel-- she did a beautiful job.

Rachel did an absolutely fantastic job taking pictures of our wedding on July 25. She showed up early and she was taking pictures every second, I didn't even see her take a break. She got so many amazing pictures, I don't think anyone else could have done a more perfect job. She got the pictures online in a week and has been very responsive to emails. I like her because she takes photojournalistic pictures in a creative different style and she took pictures of every little detail. I didn't really have any idea on certain shots I wanted but she came up with her own ideas that turned out great. Everyone loved my pictures and has been asking me who took the pictures. I would recommend Rachel to anyone, she is very talented and professional.

I would highly recommend her. We took advantage of the 8 hour day, and as a result we have photos capturing the whole event. She took a combination of photojournalism and portraits. She posted the pictures right away and we had the DVD of all the pics as soon as we picked out the photos we wanted prints of.

Rachel was fantastic to work with. I am an event planner in the area and hired Rachel for her personality, professionalism and the fantastic quality of her photos. We've recently received our wedding album and are blown away by the quality of work! Rachel was a joy to work with the day of the wedding. When I didn't think I could possibly smile one more time for a posed photo, her humor always made me laugh and our guests enjoyed her as well.

Don't disregard this review just because the ratings are all 5-out-of-5 stars...

It was a real pleasure working with Rachel. This was for our wedding in early October out in western Maryland (about 3 hrs from DC). We also hired her for a one hour engagement photo shoot in August in Silver Spring, MD. That worked out well for us because we felt it helped us get to know her before the wedding. (But she is so personable, don't feel like you shouldn't hire her if you don't have a pre-wedding photo session.)

We were extremely satisfied with her pictures. I really felt that Rachel was everywhere at once. She worked nonstop from the moment she arrived until right before she left.

She was great at organizing people for posed photos. This was a particular challenge for us because I have a large immediate family (20+ w/ parents, 5 siblings, their spouses & kids) and other relatives that called for juggling a lot of different people around when everyone just wanted to hit the cocktail hour... Rachel also arranged a group shot of everyone (all 95 guests and wedding party) on her own initiative, which was really awesome... She also pulled me and my wife out for a few moments during the reception to get some great shots of us on this long gravel road just outside the venue that had some trees with fall colors -- all her idea and some of our favorite pictures are from that moment.

While we had looked at several photographers through their websites, Rachel was the first one we met with and we didn't feel like we needed to see anyone else after her. Hire her and you have one less thing to worry about.

There wasn't a single bad image! EVERYTHING WAS WONDERFUL! The hardest part was picking 100 of our favourite! She was totally unobrtusive, she was always available, either by phone or by e-mail and was always on top of things. She didn't nag and took the most AMAZING images. She did exactly what I asked for and I couldn't have asked for more, she's just perfect! I would HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend her. She also is EXTREMELY reasonably priced!

She has a great artist eye! We used the pictures to make a coffee table book; Rachel took so many photos that it tells the story of our day PERFECTLY! Initally when we booked her we only booked her for 5 hours, as the weeding approached I decided I would like her there 8. I was nervous she wouldn't be able to accomodate the change but she did! Thanks again Rachel!

She was great in capturing candid moments before, during and after wedding/reception. We were very happy with her services and the value of her wedding package. The photos were very well done. She provided a lot of creative touches in development of the album. We liked her very much and would recommend her to anyone.
