Thirteenth Moon Photography is AMAZING! My wedding was about three weeks ago so I haven't seen all of the photos yet, but just the preview is to die for. They are super professional but also very personable. They helped keep me calm when things started to get a little crazy. Their pricing is afordable and worth every penny. I shopped around and met with quite a few photographers before choosing. After my meeting with them I knew they were the ones. Feeling comfortable in front of the camera is very important when it comes to getting good photos and I can say honestly that taking the shots of just me and my husband is one of the most fun and best memories I have of my wedding. Bill and Rachel are the best! I know they will be around for a long time and are already super successful:)

Rachel and Bill are absolutely incredible. From the minute we met them, we knew we had to have them as our wedding photographers. They made every minute of our engagement and wedding so fun and captured every moment flawlessly. Not only do they take gorgeous, PERFECT pictures, but they are so down to earth and FUN to work with. This team is truly so special and so talented--our wedding pictures are everything we hoped they would be and more. We can't wait to see Rachel and Bill in the future for any photography needs :) <3 <3<3

Rachel and Bill are very talented and are amazing people. They made me feel comfortable at our first meeting and continued to ease my worries along the way with wedding planning. They are very down to earth and understand the importance of capturing the STORY of your wedding day or special event. Rachel was so sweet and helpful the day of the wedding. She made sure that everyone was doing what they were supposed to and made sure that I looked great in the dress and was so supportive. I would recommend this awesome duo to EVERYONE!

Over the moon about Thirteenth Moon!
Bill and Rachel were the epitome of professional from day 1 of our experience with them. Timely, knowledgeable, passionate, caring, friendly; the list of positive attributes about this amazing team is endless. They ensured to get to know us, and our wedding needs right out of the gate. They are so creative and talented you will be literally blown away with the amazing shots they come up with. Our path has always been directed by God, and meeting Bill and Rachel was no exception. They not only worked SO hard to get amazing shots of us during our wedding, but they also made sure we were running on schedule for everything! We had some hiccups with our on site coordinator, and they handled the situation with grace and professionalism. ALL of our friends and family commented about how sweet these 2 are, AND about how hard they were working!! They are truly gems. All of our wedding photography expectations multiplied by about 100,000,000 = Thirteenth Moon. 5/5 does not even do them justice! Do your wedding a favor and hire Thirteenth Moon Photography!

LISTEN! Please stop and do the absolute best thing you can for your wedding (other than showing up of course) and book Bill and Rachel NOW! No, not now, yesterday. Honestly, do you not see that every single one of their ratings is five stars? I knew I was booking them even before our first meeting because I literally drooled for hours just looking at their website photos. They have the gift of making YOUR wedding photos look like they belong on the cover of a magazine for crying out loud. They made the entire process so easy I thought I had to be missing something, WRONG! It really is just that easy with them. Honestly, these two are the absolute best in the business and worth every penny if not more. I loved every minute I got to spend with these two and I will be recommending their services to anyone who will listen. Bill and Rachel were able to capture moments and details I never thought possible at our wedding and for that I am forever grateful. They go above and beyond and are the most fun and loving people on this planet. As a bride who originally wanted to elope and not have to deal with the stress of planning a huge wedding, I can honestly say I would do it all again just so I can use them again. We will definitely be using them for any further photography needs.

Rachel and Bill are AMAZING! I could not have asked for a better pair to photograph my wedding and engagement photos. They did such a wonderful job. They also went above and beyond their duties to make sure they captured all the specific moments I wanted. I got one of their larger packages and it comes with an album. I can't wait to get the album back to oogle at all our amazing photos even more. Shortly after the wedding we were given a DVD with all the wedding photos on it. I am so happy how everything turned out. <3 <3 <3

Where to start? Our experience with Rachel and Bill was amazing! And, I wish I could get married all over again just to have an excuse for them to take pictures of us. It was such an incredible blessing to share this journey with them. Not only are they talented - they're a pleasure to work with and made both of our photo sessions engagement and the big day a blast! When selecting vendors, it's important to have peace of mind that they'll deliver. You have nothing to worry about with Thirteenth Moon Photography. They're extremely professional, and one of the small things (but probably not an easy task on their end) that I loved is the selection of preview photos they post shortly after your session. It's just enough to hold you over until you receive all of the photos. Words can not express how blown away we were by the photos when we came back from our honeymoon. Despite weather challenges, Rachel and Bill were able to capture such sweet moments that I will cherish for a lifetime. I can't thank them enough! One of the best choices I made.

So it seems that we'll be adding another five star review to this amazing vendor's page. Bill and Rachel are absolutely the best one can ask for in wedding photography. Years ago I worked as an assistant for another top Orlando area photographer and let me tell you, Bill and Rachel easily exceed the level or service, care, creativity, and value that his clients received. It starts with the day you meet them, for us a bridal show about a year before our wedding. Right away you'll be able to tell how professional and personable they are as they show you different examples of their work on iPads and have a mini-consultation with you about what your needs will be. Next they schedule a sit down meeting where you have their total attention and go over the details of your wedding and what and how they will do their work. Don't worry if you have none of that figured out yet, because if you book them, they are so great and flexible and you will have the most important detail of how to capture and remember your day done. Then depending on your package, you do an engagement shoot and our pictures were EPIC!!!! We used them on our wedding website and invites and they really set the theme for our special day, I cannot say enough about their engagement shoots. Then finally your wedding will come and they will arrive early, take tons of pictures of you, your guests, your setup, etc, and you will get a preview a few days later which will blow your mind with how stunning the photos will be. There is so much more to say but I'll end by saying Bill and Rachel are the most talented, caring, and personable wedding photographers in Orlando. You get so much value for the price and really having both of them there is so great as well (double coverage for the price of one). At the same bridal show where we met them, the other photographers we visited wanted 2-3 times as much money for less time, less photos, no engagement shoot, an "associate" photographer, and no personality.

Deserves more than 5 stars without a doubt. Rachal and Bill are awesome. Photographers that will go to the end and back to create good pictures for you. Rachel even got into a stream to take a picture for us at the wedding. They are very friendly and have very warm personality.

I knew we were hiring Bill and Rachel before we even met them. From our first meeting, to our engagement photo session, to our wedding day, they completely exceeded our expectations. The quality of their photos is one thing, but it's just one big session of fun the whole time you are around them. We hired many wonderful vendors, but Bill and Rachel stuck out to us! They were simply amazing. If you are contemplating hiring them, well stop. Because you need to book them now!

Rachel and Bill really made me feel comfortable, not only are the pictures amazing, they were/are WONDERFUL! I was referred to them by a friend and so happy that Whitney gave me their info... Grant and I could not have asked for better photos or people! If I could give them more that 5 stars I would have...They did our engagement photos and I was so amazed that I HAD to have them do our wedding. I never even really noticed them at the ceremony or the reception. They were behind the scenes and still had WONDERFUL PHOTOS! Their Creativity is amazing!! Some photos, I am like why didnt I think of that...I will be using them for family photos and whatever else comes my way. I consider them part of my family now. Please make sure to use them, I promise you will not regret it!!

Look no further, these are your photographers! Rachel and Bill were absolutely phenomenal. From their creativeness in every shot to their amazing personalities, they get an A+ from us! Not only are they amazing at what they do, but they were right there anytime I needed them (from holding my drink to catching me at the bottom of the stairs!). Every couple is hesitant at first when booking their photographers (you want every moment of your special day caught on camera), but with Rachel and Bill you will see that all of that worrying was for nothing! You will get amazing shots, and lots of laughter. Thank you Rachel and Bill for being there for us on our wedding day <3

Jay and I had a private ceremony on siesta key beach, and Rachel and bill were not only our photographers, but they pretty much were our wedding organizers, witnesses, best man, and maid of honor! Not only were they all of those, they also treated our dog, Beemer,like he was their very own, and helped out as much as they could with Beemer also!! We don't know what we would have done without them!!! They are BOTH so talented, but also fun, exciting, and so thoughtful! They deserve way more than a 5 star rating, but more like a million or more stars!!! Just loved them being part of our day!!

Words cannot describe how much we LOVE Thirteenth Moon Photography!!! We loved their pictures and chose them not just because of their outstanding work, but also because of the positive vibe I got from talking to them via email. I knew I'd made the right decision when Rachel asked to Skype call, to go into more depth about what I wanted. She listened to me, put me in the driver's seat and she was so happy, bubbly and excited that I just loved it :)

They were friendly, genuinely happy for us, smiley and professional the whole time. Bill and Rachel were so great to work with, they got to my hotel room early, kept calm (especially when things went wrong), they made an extremely useful plan that they stuck to, but tweaked effortlessly when needed. They helped out with organizing other people, telling me what would happen, sticking to scheduled times and what I'd asked for. They were always asking me what I wanted and were honest if they thought a shot wouldn't work.

Bill and Rachel are AWESOME and we just had so much fun! We are THRILLED with all of the pictures they took (almost 500 pictures in 4 hours) and highly recommend them. You won't regret it! Thank you both so much!!!!

Bill and Rachel are AMAZING!!! I can't express enough how thankful we are that we hired them for our wedding! Not only are the photographs BEAUTIFUL, they were professional, fun, flexible, and captured our wedding in a way that I know no one else could!
From the very start, we knew we wanted Thirteenth Moon to be our photographers. Their samples were gorgeous, and they were priced lower than 90% of the other photographers we researched. Photographers with similar pricing were not as good, and photographers that were just as good quality wise had inflated, overblown pricing that included "packages" with services and items we did not want or need.
We met with them at a Panera and immediately were impressed with how professional they were and how relaxed they made us feel. They love to kid around and are fun, easy going people by nature. This was important to us, as we wanted people that we felt comfortable with, and they made us feel immediately comfortable!
After meeting with them, we decided to up our photography budget, and are we glad we did! They stayed at our wedding until well after the cake cutting, and captured some of the most hilarious moments on the dance floor! They were completely unobtrusive, and most of the time we completely forgot they were there.
My mother even remarked that there was only one time at the very beginning of the ceremony that she noticed them, and then they "disappeared" (her words exactly!). The formal pictures after the ceremony went quickly and were a lot of fun, and they directed our party of unruly groomsmen and bridesmaids quickly while making it fun.
After the wedding, they posted a sneak preview of our photos the next day, and we couldn't believe how beautiful and polished they looked! They made us look like movie stars, and I was thrilled! We ordered the wedding book, and we can't wait to see the rest of the pictures and pick out the ones that will go in the book!

Rachel and Bill are AMAZING! We were truly blessed to have them capture our wedding day and also to have gained two awesome friends. On our big day, Rachel and Bill were not only helpful with the photography piece but the overall flow of the day and coordination. We had some small hiccups in our day and the two of them were at our sides asking how they could help…and the hiccups had nothing to do with the photos! Between them offering my maid of honor advice on lacing up my dress, keeping the bridal party on track, finding out what was going on with our catering staff, and helping me sew my necklace back together (yes you read that right) among other things we would have been lost without them. We should probably also mention how great their photography is! The two of them are naturals at catching intimate moments of the day as well as the natural light and environment that surrounds each moment. At one point, Rachel was practically laying in a flower bed to capture a unique shot that most people would over look. When we view the photos of our first dance, it’s like we are back in that very moment thanks to their ability to capture each cherished step. Their professionalism and kindness did not end with the wedding day, Rachel and Bill created our “Thank You” cards while they were on vacation! That isn’t something most individuals would do. Rachel and Bill take pride in their work and genuinely care about each of the couples they work with. We would recommend Thirteenth Moon to anyone and have already thought about hiring them for our future life events!

WOW!! AMAZING!!! BEAUTIFUL!!!….. This is the reaction I received from friends and family. They said the entire wedding was beautiful, but they could not believe how thirteenth-moon was able to capture that and more. My sister-in-law said she can not stop looking at their pictures online, she looks daily.
Not only does thirteenth-moon shoot and edit flawless photos, they are a joy to be around. At the beginning when we first had our engagement photos taken, we were a little worried because we knew our faces would hurt from “Fake” smiling and feeling awkward with weird unknown people taking our pictures. I am pleased to say it was the exact opposite. Bill and Rachel instantly made us feel like we had been friends for years. We were doing tons of talking and laughing, so no need for fake smilies here.
On the wedding day Bill and Rachel arrived a little early and ready for showtime. When it was go time for the ceremony to start I feel like Bill and Rachel put on invisible jackets or something, because I do not remember SEEING them- yet I have amazing up close photos they took so I know they were there somewhere. Once the ceremony was over we instantly got to work on all the formal photos. Bill and Rachel were very organized and that went VERY quickly. Afterwards was when the real magic happened, we rushed to different “must have” photo shots- and these photos are the ones I love the most. The sunset was beautiful and thirteenth-moon captured all of it.
When the reception started Bill and Rachel put on their wonderful invisible jackets and went to work. They were there for everything yet, not seen. I do kinda wonder how they did this because it seems like it would be hard to miss two people walking around with cameras.
I truly feel like thirteenth-moon did an outstanding job with everything! I am fortunate to say not a single thing went “wrong” or was different than what I planned. Thank you Thirteenth-moon for all of your hard work and capturing our special day.

We LOVE Rachel and Bill!!!! When we first met them we hit it off immediately. We told them what we liked, our price range and they met all of those expectations and more... We were going to look at different photographers but, when we met them we felt like they were the perfect fit for our wedding. We always were laughing and had a great time during all the shoots. They are very professional but, keep things light and lively. We love you guys, thanks for telling the story of our wedding with fantastic photographs.

As a man, the idea of people following me for hours on my wedding day while they squawked commands at me and told me to pose in unnatural positions made me slightly ill.
However, I am very happy to report that Bill and Rachel of Thirteenth Moon Photography were a joy to work with and didn’t squawk even the slightest bit. They took incredibly natural photographs and didn’t force us to do anything that was out of our comfort zone (we are a very casual couple and would have just giggled at anything too “fancy-shmancy”).
Getting married at Walt Disney World means you have an almost overwhelming number of options for wedding photography and while there are quite a few that I would rate as being “very good”, I really haven’t seen any that are on the same level as Thirteenth Moon. They simply do terrific work and are a true pleasure to work with. If I am ever in need of more wedding photography – and I SINCERELY hope that I never am – I wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again.

There's a good reason Thirteenth Moon receives one 5 star review after another...and that's because they truly deserve it! Actually 5 stars seem a bit inadequate given how fabulous they are.

Choosing a photographer is one of the most important decisions you will have to make regarding your wedding. Not only do you want someone who can take great photos (Rachel & Bill are AMAZINGLY TALENTED), but it is equally important they are people you feel comfortable around because they will be with you from start to finish. In addition to their great skill, they are the nicest people you will ever have the pleasure to meet. I can't imagine working with anyone else...and trust me I am a very fussy mother-of-the-bride. My daughter and I had met with several photographers and just didn't feel they had "it" but we were so sure Thirteenth Moon was "the one" that we signed with them on the spot.

And we aren't the only ones that felt this way, my son and future daughter-in-law signed with them after meeting them once. Their engagement photos were incredible and I know their wedding photos will be as gorgeous as my daughter's are.

When something is right you know it. Once you meet Rachel & Bill you will know what I mean. They are best of the best...and that is no exaggeration!!!!

Rachel and bill are the most amazing photographers but what really sets them apart from the rest is that they take a true investment in getting to know their clients on a personal level. They are so incredibly talented and truly fall in love with each couples love story. It's amazing how they show the personality of the couple and love between them in their pictures. Their eye for this is something that cannot be taught. I knew from the moment meeting with them that they had to be apart of my wedding. They were always a great support system and so incredibly responsive to any question or issue I had- whether it was related to photography or not. I personally had major issues with my original venue and wedding dress but Rachel and bill never hesitated to help in any way possible. They are not only amazing people but truly incredibly talented photographers. I feel as though I have found my photographers I will continue to use for all future life events! They will forever be apart of my husbands and I lives as photographers and friends!

There aren't enough adjectives to describe our experience with Bill and Rachel !!!!! They did the photography for my daughters wedding and it was more than we could have dreamed of. Halie had an outdoor wedding and we had dreams of some awesome sunset photos. Mother Nature had another plan. A monsoon right after the ceremony !! But, Rachel didn't panic. She actually got some sunset photos and some of the most amazing photos regardless of the rain. Now, that's professionalism at it's best !!! Kudos to Thirteenth Moon Photography !!! Wishing you many more years of awesome pictures:)

BOOK THEM NOW!!!! Do not even think about it-just do it! They will make your wedding everything you dreamed it would be!!!! We met with Bill and Rachel then left to "talk" about if we wanted to book them and as soon as we walked out the door we looked at each other and said, "Let's do it". From that moment-we never looked back! Rachel and Bill showed up early on the wedding day and started shooting before I turned around. They were there for every special moment capturing it and making it look even better than it did in real life. We were beyond blown away by the photos we have seen so far! It really does look like our real life fairytale. My Husband and I left at 5 AM the next morning for our flight and we were so bummed we wouldn't get to see the sneak peek photos until our return so Rachel posted about 5 that NIGHT and we woke up at 2 AM just staring at them in AWE!!!!! My family and friends have all asked where I found these photographers and talk about how AMAZING our pictures are. We love Bill and Rachel and are beyond certain they will be there for maternity shots, newborn pics, and everything in between for life ahead.......... as we KNOW they will not dissappoint. Our photos are truly our fairytale day and if there was one thing we would change- it would NEVER be our choice of booking them. :)

Bill & Rachel were an absolute pleasure to work with for both the engagement photos & our wedding photos. We were able to see a preview of our wedding photos the night before we left on our honeymoon. Alesie & I were just amazed with the preview pictures which they captured of our wonderful wedding and cannot wait to see the rest of the photographs. All of our family and friends cannot stop talking about how amazing our wedding preview photos look and we have referred quite a few friends that have already or looking to book them in the future. From the initial meeting, we knew these were the perfect photographers for us. Bill and Rachel kept things fun, and relieved any stress we had on our wedding day.They also helped save the day with referring us to a videographer a few weeks before our wedding, after our booked videographers went bankrupt and folded.

Do not look anywhere else for photography services. Book them now before your wedding date is not available!

First piece of advice...call them, set up a consultation and book them right then and there...and if they don't have your date available, CHANGE your date so you can have them! Rachel and Bill were the BEST decision we made in our wedding planning. From the initial consulation, they made me feel so comfortable and I could tell they were REAL people who cared deeply about what they did. I could tell that from the start and booked them that night.
They are very quick to answer questions you might have along the way about ANY part of the wedding, which puts any bride at ease! Once my husband met them at the engagement shoot he knew why I fell in love with them after the first meeting. Rachel and Bill actually got my husband to smile FOR REAL, rather than the fake smile I usually get from him =) They are SOO fun and make every situation a little less stressful.
The wedding day was perfect!!!!! They are very quick to get pictures posted. We couldn't have asked for a better experience...and we gained great friends. Thank you so much Rachel and Bill, we truly appreciate all of your hard work and we had a blast!

Our daughter's wedding was held on June 29th at the Hyatt Regency Grande Cypress. We had a good feeling when we first met Bill and Rachel Bolen over a year ago. At the wedding, they did their thing in a professional manner and went above and beyond! Rachel even helped my daughter fix her dress! During the cocktail hour, they were sure to get the family photos quickly so that we could enjoy the party. During the reception we saw them take countless pictures while remaining "invisible." The best part happened the day after the wedding when we were pleasantly surprised to find 40 sample pictures from the wedding online. The pics were fantastic and our friends could not stop raving over the quality and artistry of their work. We were bowled over and we can't wait to see more. Save yourself some time and money and be sure to check out their website. You won't be disappointed!

My experience with Thirteenth Moon could not have been any better than it was! Rachel and Bill are awesome, responsive, helpful, fun, and talented. The quality of the professionalism and the quality of the photos are second to none and unbelievable for the price, because they are affordable. Having Rachel around was like having a friend around. She was there to make sure I was fine and was totally involved and easy to talk to. When I first spoke to her she told me that she likes to be organized and efficient. She certainly was. It was a hot day and she and Bill wasted no time getting our formal pictures in so that our elderly family members could go in and enjoy our cocktail hour. They are a great team and my husband and I would recommend them to anyone who wants quality and greatness!

Bill and Rachel were absolutely incredible. As soon as they showed up on the wedding day, I knew everything was going to be fine. They made me laugh and took some gosh darn fabulous photos. They make you feel comfortable and are great at wrangling family members so that you can get through those formal photos and get to the fun stuff!

Leading up to the wedding they were always prompt in replies and even reached out to us a few times to check in. I recommend these two will my whole heart and will definitely be using them for all my future photography needs. LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!

They captured the most beautiful moments of our special day and I am so glad we chose them as our photographers. Out of all the things for our wedding, pictures were the most meaningful to us and with Rachel and bills work, we need nothing else. they also were so fun to work with they are amazing people inside and out my family even fel in love with them both. they are such great people with great hearts I will actually miss them!

We were very picky about photographers for our outdoor wedding and indoor reception but we didn't have to worry with Thirteenth Moon. They had so many affordable packages that allowed us to cover our whole wedding as well as a Bridal Session in replacement of a Engagement session (since we'd already had one). Bill and Rachel were so organized! I never had any doubt that anything would be forgotten or left out and in the end our pictures were amazing. They captured all the best moments without feeling like they got in the way at the wedding. I hardly noticed them most of the time. We got all our pictures on a CD as well as a link to an online viewing gallery that we could send to friends and family. I would definitely recommend Thirteenth Moon to anyone looking for wedding photography.

I don’t even know where to begin with recommending Bill and Rachel from Thirteenth Moon Photography. I absolutely LOVED every second of working with these two, both during our planning process and on my actual wedding day. When I think about how amazing they were in keeping me calm before the ceremony, making things fun and creative with our photography, coordinating our family for group photos, and going above and beyond to make sure we were happy with the results, I honestly can’t help but get teary-eyed. The preview photos I have seen from our wedding so far are unbelievably breathtaking. My family and friends have all raved to me about how they have never seen such gorgeous wedding photography and that I will have the best wedding album ever! I really could go on and on, but PLEASE….meet with them, look at their work, you will book them on the spot. Bill and Rachel were truly one of my favorite things about our wedding, and I could never thank them enough for helping us to preserve such beautiful memories from that day.

My husband and I got married 04/06/2013 in Orlando and had the pleasure of working with Bill and Rachel and they were amazing. Our wedding photos came out so beautiful and the compliments we have received from our friends and families are unending.

From our initial consultation and every day leading up until our big day, Bill and Rachel were professional and quick to respond. There was never a day that an email went without a response. We felt like they were more than just our wedding photographers but that we had truly developed a friendship with them. The day of our wedding, it was so easy taking photos because it just felt so natural. Bill and Rachel kept things on time and in line. A bridal party member said that our wedding photos were the most efficient and organized wedding photos she had ever been a part of.

We cannot say enough great things our Bill and Rachel. I have had a countless amount of engaged friends ask for their information and meet with them after looking at our photos and hearing us rave about them. They are actually the photographers for the wedding we are in in November!

Your wedding photos are the only things you can take away from your wedding to share with others. They are the only things you can look at when you want to remember how great your first dance was, how beautiful your dress was, or what an awesome time all of your guests had. I know that every time my husband and I look at our wedding photos we will be able remember every moment of our big day and feel like we are there again and to me, that is priceless!

Rachel and Bill are absolutely fabulous. Their photography is nothing short of genius. Rachel and Bill fit in with our group like we had know each other forever. They captured the exact images our daughter wanted and always knew and were willing to pitch in to do what was needed. Bill even handled the bustle like he had sewn the buttons and loops in himself.

Thanks so much for being a MAJOR part of why Tiana and Jason's day was so special.

Rachel and Bill are not only professional but they become a friend with both the families. This is great because then everyone feels comfortable!

Rachel and Bill are an absolute pleasure to work with. They see the big picture - everything from making sure dad is ready for his dance to catching the DJ on his name pronunciation! It's like getting a free day-of planner with your photographer.

And their work speaks for itself. Rachel and Bill captured the spirit of a moment, while still allowing us to go about our wedding business and have fun! They were present but never intrusive.

They are artists of the highest quality.

From the day I first met them, I knew I'd like them. They were so down to earth and got so excited when I described what I wanted my wedding to be like (Rachel was even more excited than me I think!). They put me totally at ease that my photography would be perfect.
For our engagement photo session we did a vintage Coca-Cola picnic theme at Rollins College. They showed up on time and ready to work. Rachel snapped away while Bill took care of the lighting(and watched my purse :P ). They took some very creative shots of us in probably 10 different locations on campus during our 1 hour session. I don't know how she thought of some of the shots. It was so easy and we had fun! My now husband was a little worried about spending a whole hour getting our picture taken, but he relaxed right away. We wound up with 60 or so finished pictures in the end and they were so perfect! I still look at them almost daily, they're just that good. When it was almost time for our wedding Rachel and Bill contacted me to make sure no plans had changed and to see if I had any specific shots I was looking for. The big day finally came and they showed up on time(maybe early, I didn't have a watch) and got right to work after Rachel and I shared a few excited shrieks! I basically just went about my business of getting ready while Rachel snapped away. She got pictures of all sorts of little details. Then she took some pictures of my mom and my MOH helping me put my dress on and it was time for the ceremony. Bill managed to get a few candids of us girls as we waited to line up in the chapel lobby. During the ceremony, they captured the moments beautifully! Our favorite picture is the emotion they captured of my now father-in-law tearing up as he performed our ceremony. Perfection! Once we got to the reception, Rachel and Bill blended into the crowd like ninjas. All I saw were brief flashes every time I thought to my self "I'd like to get a picture of this". They were just so great! Thanks guys!

Bill and Rachel, with Thirteenth Moon Photography, are truly AMAZING! From the moment I met them, I knew my search was over. They are so hilarious and such a cute couple themselves. We instantly clicked and I knew they could handle our crew. Their prices were so reasonable and their pictures even better! I can’t wait to get all our prints! My husband and I got to know them even better during our Engagement Photo session and I continued to fall in love with them! Rachel and Bill stayed in constant contact with me leading up to the wedding, making sure they knew all of the pictures that I wanted and what the timeline was. When I needed Rachel a little earlier than we discussed, she quickly agreed. They are so flexible! And the most challenging part was dealing with our families (my mom, in particular) and all the photo shots they wanted. Rachel and Bill didn’t bat an eye and handled their demands beautifully! They gave us a sneak peak of some of the photos and they are AMAZING! I can’t wait to see all of the pictures! Thank you for being such a great part of our day! Bill and Rachel do NOT disappoint!!! Hire them!!!

AMAZING!! Beyond the AMAZING photos that they took, they were AMAZING to be around. There is nothing more that I could have asked of them. They delievered a product and service tha was far beyond expectations. We were AMAZED at the shots that they were able to capture without being intrusive. These memories are irreplaceable. Not only were Rachel and Bill great with me and my husband, but all of the guests at the wedding commented on how wonderful they were! I could keep going, but I think that you get the point.

Where to begin...going into planning our wedding we heard a gazillion times "don't settle on your photographer...you'll have your pictures forever". Knowing this but being on a budget we scratched off many photographers day by day. We wanted a great photographer that knew what they were doing but that could also make us comfortable in front of the camera. Looking online we found Thirteenth Moon. We read all of the reviews we could find and decided to meet with them and see if we found what we were looking for. From the moment we met Bill and Rachel we knew we would have fun and seeing their work we knew we would get what we were looking for. James told them he's not a "picture guy" and Rachel reassured us by the wedding he'd be comfortable. We booked them that night sitting in Starbucks and are thrilled we did. We met up at the Kissimmee airport for our engagement session and onto our venue to finish them off. We laughed a lot and they helped us be creative with the pictures that everyone LOVED!!! Then onto the wedding...they captured our first look (which after the tears James was joking and asking for pictures to be taken) and the entire evening with having fun and being professional even with our rainy evening and helicopter exit. We can't begin to say how much we LOVED working with Bill and Rachel throughout the months of planning. Anytime we had a question or a thought Rachel would get back to us quickly and with out hesitation. James and I have already said anytime we want photos again we will use Thirteenth moon in a heartbeat. We have recommended them to other friends and will continue to do so. In our opinion your search can end now for a photographer!!! -Katie & James 12.28.12

BOOK THEM NOW!!! My husband and I were so impressed with Thirteenth Moon Photography from the first day we met with them, just looking at their sample work and we loved their personalities (Hysterical!). Needless to say we booked Bill and Rachel right then as our wedding photographers. :) For some Brides it is the dress or even the venue that is the most important thing to them about their wedding. Well, for me, it was the photographers. I knew the pictures of our special day were what was going to last us a lifetime. I am so so so (I can’t say “so” enough) glad that we decide on Thirteenth Moon Photography as our photographers! They did both our Engagement as well as our Wedding photos and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the quality of the photographs and would highly recommend them to anyone on the hunt for the perfect photographers! I am already looking forward to a Maternity shoot one day! :)
Bill and Rachel, we cannot say thank you enough for all the hard work you put into such an important part of our lives. You truly did give us a lifetime of tangible memories and for that we are very grateful!

What are you waiting for? Why haven't you booked these guys yet?! Seriously. If I had to pick the one thing that went right about our wedding, it's Bill and Rachel. From our magical Disney World engagement shoot to our wedding day prints - this photog power couple is 100% perfection. Thirteenth Moon was my first photography vendor interview and we knew 15 minutes into our meeting that it was the only one we needed. I was absolutely blown away by their service. Not only are their photographs just breathtaking, but on your wedding day, ladies, they will TAKE CARE OF YOU. Seriously! Both Rachel and Bill were awesome, supportive and kick a** on my big day (which was full of stress and insanity; ask them!) Not only did they take rocking pictures, they also wrangled family members, reassured me and made my day amazing. We received so many photographs after the wedding. So why are Bill and Rachel perfect for you, Miss Bride? If you want your day perfectly documented, if you want to forget about worrying where the photographer is, if you want to look like a princess, if you want to make two new best friends - BOOK. THEM. NOW. Seriously. Stop looking at reviews. You're done. You've found them. Price competitive. Timely. Accommodating. Hilarious. Friendly. Professional. Thorough. Perfect. Thank you Bill and Rachel for being the cherry on top of our wedding sundae. We love you so much!

Before we even got engaged, I saw engagement photos of a friend of mine posted on her Facebook and they were absolutely stunning. I immediately asked her who her photographer was and when we started looking on Thirteenth Moon's website, we were pleasantly surprised to find that their rates were incredibly reasonable. We sent a request for info to Bill & Rachel at Thirteenth Moon and quickly set up an interview. They were the first and only interview we needed. They were so nice and fun (even though we were meeting at 7am)! A couple months later we had our engagement photo session, which I highly recommend. It will give you a chance to get to know Rachel & Bill a little better and for them to get to know you and make you feel a little more relaxed in the pics on the big day. After getting to know us they did a great job incorporating little personal details into our shots and they just look so natural. On the big day, Rachel and Bill were prompt and prepared and they got pics of EVERY single little detail that I worked hard on. The flowers, favors, ceremony area, seating area, us getting ready, our families getting ready and that's all before the wedding! Once everything started, they blended in like Ninjas - I didn't even see them but they must have been EVERYWHERE because the angles and variety of pictures was spectacular. We were running out of daylight but they did a great job getting in all the sall the shots of the two of us and of our bridal party and families. Not only is each picture precious but I think we got 2 - 3 times as many photos as we expected. I can't wait for our next major life events or excuses to book their services again!

Absolutely AMAZING! What else can I say! From the first time I met with Rachel to our engagement photo session to the day of our wedding, every step of the way was a breeze. This team enjoys what they do and you can see it in their work and their excitement while photographing. They were flexible with all of my questions and needs and even responded to an email question when they were out of the office.
I couldn't say enough thanks as I had a last minute panic and was in need of a new hair/makeup vendor. First person I reached out to was Rachel and she pointed me in the right direction and everything worked out perfectly!!
We have been able to view a few photos of our wedding and I am so excited to see them all! Please consider Thirteenth Moon Photography!!

From the moment I met Bill and Rachel I knew they would be the Photographers I would use to capture the memories of my wedding day. The package I chose included an engagment shoot. My husband and I were nervous at first ( we had never taken pictures before) but that quikly desolved. They are friendly and will make you laugh. They become more like part of the family. Our engagment pictures came out so good. I think it took me weeks before I could stop looking at them on a daily bases. Just last weekend they photographed my wedding. They were not just taking pictures though, Bill helped me get my vail off at the reception, Rachel made sure everything went smoothly before the ceremony and that everything was going as planned. Bill had to put up with the groom and his crazy groomsmen. When my slip didnt fit Rachel just said " You dont really need it, just dont trip on your dress". Even when things could have gotten stressful and I could have lost it, they kept me calm. I dont have the pictures from the wedding yet but they always give you a preview, the 12 pictures I do have are amazing. I couldn't have asked for better photographers/new friends to capture the memories of my dream wedding.

Bill and Rachel were our favorite people to work with during our entire wedding planning process. They are very professional and not to mention a lot of fun. Bill and Rachel really do know love and want to "show" the love in their photos. If you are looking for photographers who listen to what you want, provide great ideas and suggestions, and not to mention they have the best prices, Thirteenth Moon Photography is the best way to go. The best advice I can give is that your photographers will be with you maybe 8 plus hours or so, therefore you want to like them and the two of them have the most bubbly/positive/professional/ attitudes and I promise picking Thirteenth Moon will be your easiest and best wedding decision.

Rachel and Bill are amazing amazing amazing! I could not say enough about how amazing they were! You will not regret booking them. 13th Moon Photography was my BEST wedding decision. Not only are they great photographers, they are also great people who will keep you giggling and upbeat the entire time you are with them. My guests were so impressed by Rachel and Bill that we were asked frequently during the wedding "who are those people? they are amazing" because they are SO MUCH more then just photographers (as if that wasnt enough!). My unmarried, unengaged girlfriends were raving about how they cant wait to use them - that is how amazing they are! They helped to fix many minor problems that occurred throughout the day in a snap. Rachel and Bill were there every step of the way. I was the most nervous about selecting a photographer when I began wedding planning, but when you meet with Rachel and Bill you IMMEDIATELY know. They are there all along the way to help with any questions or concerns you may have. They are also willing to travel and are SO NICE about it. We will be going to them for any future photo needs!

They exceeded every expectation that we had! All of our family and friends commented on our "awesome" photographers! They make you feel part of their thirteenth moon family! They both have an upbeat, positive attitude and are just a joy to be around on your big day. Would recommend them to anyone for their wedding day! AND..they take some amazing pictures!

With a Cinderella-inspired wedding, it only made sense for me to book photographers that are a complete dream come true. From day one, Rachel's charismatic personality and contagious laughter intertwined with Bill's calm demeanor and incredible sense of humor had me sold on Thirteenth Moon Photography.
When I saw the extensive portfolio full of photo after photo showcasing their creativity and unmatched talent, I surely thought this husband and wife team was TOO GOOD to be true. The glass slipper to complete this 'Cinderella Story' was their affordable pricing and flexible packages that allow the bride and groom to have the wedding photographers of their dreams :)
Each one of the hundreds of photos taken by this exceptional team is a treasure that we will forever cherish. I can't even choose a 'favorite' because they are all beautiful, and showcase my husband's and my personality and vision. I assure you that Rachel and Bill will get to know YOU...the bride and groom...and then will decide how to do your photos. We even did our engagement photos at a coffee shop, because Rachel LISTENED to us when we discussed who we were.
Rachel and Bill went well beyond our expectations and helped us to create the WEDDING of our dreams by introducing us to an incredible reverend, venue, florist, and wedding coordinator. I can't even call these two my photographers anymore because I have been blessed to have gained two friends from all of this! Real friends too, because even AFTER my wedding and having received all of my photos (much sooner than expected by the way), it was Rachel who contacted me to have coffee with her just yesterday!
Whether you believe in Fairy Godmothers or not, I can assure you that if you had one for your wedding, she would wave her magic wand and Rachel and Bill would appear with their sparkling personalities and unsurpassable talents. *Bippity, boppity, boo...Thirteenth Moon is a dream come true!*

Bill and Rachel were wonderful and very accommodating. They helped us customize a package that worked for us within our budget and delivered ten-fold. During the entire evening, they were always very friendly and discrete in capturing our special moments. Not only that, they got us our photos (which came out wonderfully) quite fast. I would highly recommend Thirteenth Moon to anyone who wants a professional, but still easy-going team of photographers for their special event.

Picking a wedding photographer is one of the toughest things for any wedding.The search for the perfect photographer took a few months but it proved to be worth the wait.In March,we had narrowed down our list to two photographers and met with both of them on the same day.One of them was Thirteenth Moon Photography-owned and operated by Rachel and Bill Bolen. We met the couple at Crispers and right away hit it off. The way Rachel and Bill make you feel like they are your closest friends and they have known you for years won us over. Our engagement pictures couldn’t have turned out more beautiful.We reenacted “Just Married,” “The Notebook,” “Love & Basketball,” and “Walk the Line” all in less than one hour and in one location. The photos turned out better than the original movie posters and you couldn’t tell we weren’t at the Ryman Auditorium.As soon as we saw the first preview for the engagement photos, we couldn’t wait for the wedding day and have our special day captured by Rachel and Bill. As soon as Rachel came to the hotel, she tried to ease my nerves and get me relaxed for the big day.From the time we were getting ready to the last guests leaving, Rachel and Bill were there to capture every moment.They captured moments where I didn’t even know they were there (Fiancé and I talking to our wedding guests as we made the table rounds, the empty dessert glasses, me making chocking faces while one of my bridesmaids put on my necklace).When I first looked at all of the pictures from our wedding day,I felt the excitement, nerves, and joy of that special day all over again.Rachel and Bill of Thirteenth Moon Photography truly understood what pictures I wanted to treasure for years to come.We are extremely thankful to have chosen them to be our photographer not only because the pictures turned out STUNNING but also because we feel we have made friends for life and want them to be there when we take our next big step.Thank you, Rachel & Bill, for the lasting memories!

Our wedding day was amazing! Yet my heart was broken when I saw our wedding photos. Like most brides, it was crucial to me that our pictures captured the magic of our special day. It is sufficient to say that we had a very bad experience. Even though we paid a large amount of money for our original pictures, a lot of our pictures were out of focus and overexposed.
I decided for our year anniversary to have our wedding photos reshot. After extensive research online, I found Thirteenth Moon Photography. There are several key things that drew me to Thirteenth Moon. First, they had awesome reviews. Second, they had amazing pictures from entire weddings. I learned the hard way that most photographers can grab one or two good shots from a wedding. Yet it takes a skilled photographer to deliver consistent quality pictures. Lastly, their pictures are amazing!!!
Thirteenth Moon Photography exceeded my expectations. When I contacted them they were quick to respond and very accommodating. I was really impressed that they never told me “no”. They tried to make all of my requests a reality. They were AWESOME! They were everything I could ask for in photographers. They were punctual. They worked quickly to maximize our time. They paid attention to detail. They delivered exceptional value. They were so much fun to be around, Yet, most importantly, they delivered an awesome finished product in an extremely timely manner. They made our experience a special memory. They're not only the kind of people who are great to work with but the kind of people you want to be your friends. I couldn't have asked for better pictures and I'm so happy we choose Thirteenth Moon to reshoot our wedding photos.
I truly feel that Thirteenth Moon photography gave us a piece of our wedding day back. That is something you can't put a price on. If you are looking for a wedding photographer, please stop looking and book Thirteenth Moon! You will not regret it!! Book with this AMAZING COUPLE!

Searching for reliable vendors for your wedding can be one of the most difficult challenges. This especially rings true in the search for a photographer. These are the people who will freeze each memory in time for a lifetime. I can honestly say that my dreams came true when I met Rachel and Bill. We clicked immediately and I knew that I would have nothing to worry about when it came to wedding day. I had some specific requests and a tight budget and instead of caring about nothing but the bottom line, they were able to work with us and help us get everything we wanted and needed without killing our bank account. On top of the amazing experience we had leading up to and on our wedding day, our pictures turned out amazing! I am so thankful that we were able to work with Rachel and Bill and would strongly recommend that anyone planning a wedding schedule a meeting because you won't be disappointed and you will definitely book them right then and there.

Working with Thirteenth Moon Photography was such an amazing experience! From the very beginning, Bill and Rachel were so easy to contact, talk to, and work with. They were one of the first vendors I booked and since I didn’t live in Florida I was pretty nervous about the whole situation. But I loved their work, was very impressed with their reviews and the prices were amazing. I felt confident in my decision but it was when we met in person that I just knew the experience would be a good one. My mom and I made a last minute decision to head to Orlando from Tennessee to work on some wedding things and with three days notice, Bill and Rachel were able to meet us at a location convenient for us for a consultation. The four of us sat and talked and laughed at Starbucks like we were old friends! My mom and I were both so excited to have them at my June wedding! Then when my fiancé and I found out that we were moving to Tampa right after our wedding, Rachel offered so many times to help us with anything including house hunting (SO SWEET!). On the wedding day, I was getting a little stressed and it was like Bill & Rachel showed up JUST IN TIME! They really did help calm my nerves and Rachel even helped me get dressed. The whole afternoon they worked so hard and stayed so professional and still kept my fiancé and me really comfortable. We were both so impressed with how much more they did than just take pictures including making all the ceremony and reception transitions as smooth as possible with their professional help and advice. When we got our preview of our wedding pictures, we LOVED it and it made us so excited to get the final product! So many of my family and friends saw it and loved it too. With that being said, I am in love with the pictures and memories captured at our wedding. Everything from getting ready, to the ceremony, to the reception, to dancing, to posed pictures, to decorations was captured. The pictures are beautiful and will be something I cherish for my entire life. Something I really love is that there are so many natural moments caught, not only between my fiancé and me but between other family members and friends as well. Those are the memories that I want to keep and Bill and Rachel captured them beautifully and of course add beautiful edits when necessary. Picking the right wedding photography is so important because these are moments you want to keep for yourself and your children and grandchildren. I am so glad that I was blessed enough to find Thirteenth Moon Photography and experience their amazing work!

Rachel and Bill of Thirteenth Moon Photography are absolutely amazing! Not only did they capture the most amazing pictures, but they brought a fun and playful atmosphere to our destination wedding. From the first time I spoke with Rachel on the phone, I felt like she was an old friend. She is able to connect and relate to her clients so that they are completely comfortable and confident that the day will be perfect. When they arrived on the morning of our wedding, it was like a reunion between old friends with hellos and hugs and felt immediately at ease. Rachel and Bill work together perfectly in sync. They seem to know what the other is thinking and capture incredible moments without communicating. Choosing Thirteenth Moon to be a part of our special day was the best decision I could have made.

We had a fabulous experience with Rachel & Bill through our whole wedding process! After contacting them for our initial consultation we knew just from their professionalism, flexibilty, knowledge and kindness we had found our photographers. Not only were their package prices great, they were on top of their game! They knew exactly what to ask us to ensure they provided the best service on our special day. Thirteenth Moon kept in touch over the months as our day rapidly approached and once it came, we felt so comfortable being photographed by Rachel & Bill. They have great easy-going personalities and throughout the day acted as old friends with us and our family/friends. Our pictures are breathtaking! We love each and every one of them and cannot wait to use their services again in the near future for our life events. We can't thank them enough for providing us with a lifetime of memories to share with others!

We cannot say enough good things about Rachel and Bill. We first heard of them via www.TheKnot.com and immediately liked the style of their photography. From the moment we contacted them via email, they were courteous, professional and extremely responsive. Other companies took days to respond to our inquires and Rachel and Bill took just a few hours, on a weekend, if I remember correctly.
We were planning our intimate Florida beach wedding from Mississippi with only 6 months to spare. All of our communication was via email and since we couldn't meet them in person for a consultation, Rachel suggested we Skype. We loved the idea and as soon as we ended the Skype session my future husband and I knew Rachel and Bill were the ones to capture our special day (I might add that other companies still hadn't even responded to our initial inquires by the time we decided on Thirteenth Moon-oh well, their loss).Thirteenth Moon has amazing prices, especially since the customer receives a disc of the photos (research your companies folks, many photographers do not give you the "rights" to the photos) and we loved the fact that Rachel and Bill work as a couple (my husband and I met and fell in love working side by side for the same company and one day will open our own business together-we're a great team like Rachel and Bill, what can I say).
Within a week or so of reserving our date with Thirteenth Moon, Rachel and Bill sent us a folder that contained everything we needed to brainstorm on what types of photos we wanted. They also sent us a a thank you card for choosing them to be our wedding photographers. This was such a extra special touch in a day and age where so many companies seem to forget customer service and that customers do have a choice regarding what companies to support. I loved the fact that they sent us a "thank you." Throughout the planning stages Rachel and Bill were very responsive to our emails and answered any questions and concerns we had.
We finally got to meet Rachel and Bill the afternoon of our wedding; I met them first when they came to shoot my "getting ready" photos. I was so nervous because my dream of marrying the love of my life was finally coming true; Rachel and Bill came in and basically took over. They immediately got started and were joking around and making me laugh which truly helped calm my nerves.
We just received word that our photos are finished and we have been able to view them online while we wait for our disc to arrive. We love the photos (they have a great eye and an incredibly artistic style) and while looking through them we felt as though we were reliving our wedding day. Due to the very small size of our wedding, we didn't have a traditional reception, but Rachel and Bill were able to capture so much interaction between our guests, at the beach, immediately before and after the ceremony; we really appreciated this. We also had a rainbow just after the ceremony and I think most everyone else missed it due to the excitement, but Rachel and Bill saw it; now we have an amazing photo of us on our wedding day with a rainbow in the background! This is especially meaningful to us because we have had the pleasure of seeing a lot of rainbows together.
Thank you Rachel and Bill for doing an amazing job capturing our special day!

Thirteenth Moon Photography did the photos for our wedding last month. They were recommended to my wife and I by my manager. We knew right away from the consultation that they were the perfect photographers for us. They have a perfect balance of professionalism along with the ability to have fun and enjoy what they do. Rachel did a great job of keeping my wife cool and collected while she was getting ready, and Bill seemed to fit right in as one of the guys while I was getting ready with my groomsmen. They were on the same page as we were as far as the vision we had for our wedding and knew the perfect shots to take to fit our style. When the photos were finished, I didn't even know what to say about them besides simply "amazing!" They truly are masters of their craft, and I highly recommend them to anyone who is currently in the market for a photographer. If I had a third thumb, I would give them three thumbs way up!

Rachel and Bill from Thirteenth Moon Photography are truly amazing at what they do. From the moment we met them at our consultation we knew they were the perfect photographers to capture our special day. Both me and my now husband have fun, but weird off-beat personalities and they immediately picked up on that and helped try to express that in our photos (for example we shot our E-session in a beautiful, old, local cemetery). I am not a very photogenic person and I absolutely hate the way I usually turn out in photographs but Rachel helped me break out of my shell and made me feel beautiful both at our E-session and more importantly on my big day and you can clearly see it in the photos. The photos from both our E-session and our wedding were nothing less than breathtaking and I couldn’t be more pleased with their work. Rachel and Bill our wonderful people who clearly love and enjoy the work that they do and you can see their passion for photography in every photo they take. I highly recommend them to capture your love story, I know you won’t be disappointed!!

When I first met Rachel and Bill, Rachel's energy and happy aura pulled my naturally calm demeanor into her zone! I left feeling so good, but people kept telling me to interview other photographers. Months later, I called them up and booked immediately, thanking God they were still available. First off, Mike and I barely take pictures. I'm so shy in front of a camera and usually stick to a signature pose and smile. With Rachel and Bill, we had a blast during our engagement photo shoot - we really looked forward to our wedding day pictures!! Rachel and Bill were so creative and fun to be around. When I woke up on my wedding day, I actually thought about how much fun she's going to be when she arrived. I was right. Both she and Bill had us cracking up and bring silly. I'm not even sure we did our "signature" pose, thankfully! I could rave about their personalities all day long. Their work is amazing as well. Our pictures from the engagement shoot in the library and church street were thoughtful and detailed. We truly enjoyed working with this loving couple and look forward to booking them for other events as well.

Finding the photographers for our wedding was the hardest task for us. I knew what I wanted when it came to capturing our wedding day and I was not going to settle until I found it. From the moment I saw Thirteenth Moon Photography's portfolio and read their story I knew that Rachel and Bill were the ones for us. After a short phone call I knew we had found them. They were so amazing working with us to create a custom package that fit our needs. During our engagement shoot Rachel and Bill captured the most beautiful shots and I knew it was only a small taste of what was to come for the big day. They helped us every step of the way and checked in to make sure that there wasn't anything that they could help us with along the way. They had so many creative ideas that we would have never thought of which is how it should be with your photographer. One of my bridesmaids even had a family emergency last minute and her husband had to leave the day of the wedding which meant there was no one really to watch her daughter who was also my flower girl while formals were being taken. Bill stepped right up and helped us keep tabs on her which to me and my husband is going above and beyond! They helped with keeping the day going and ensured that all the pictures were not only taken but were taken beautifully!! I would HIGHLY recommend Rachel, Bill and their team to anyone! They are the sweetest, funniest, most amazing photography team ever. So glad they were a part of our special day!

My husband Dave and I were so thankful for Rachel and Bill on our wedding day!! They did above and beyond what photographers are expected to do. As the bride, Rachel was my savior in helping to keep me calm and at ease. Bill was fun and easy going so the guys enjoyed getting their pictures taken as well. We are so pleased with the samples of photos we've been lucky enough to take a peak at and can't wait to see all of them!! Rachel and Bill are funny and down to earth and listened to Dave and I when we made it clear we did not want "cheesy" pictures. We hope to see them whenever we are in the Orlando area and would hands down recommend Thirteenth Moon Photography to anyone!!!!

Choosing Thirteenth Moon to photograph our wedding was the best choice we could have made! Their prices are incredible for a bride on a budget, but you would never know based on their customer service and quality of photos. I have read in so many reviews that Rachel and Bill were like friends to the bride and groom and I couldn't agree more. They joked with us to calm our nerves, helped us with little details (Rachel helped me put my headpiece on correctly since my hairstylist left without doing it) and made sure we got to eat dinner without being bombarded by our own guests. They went above and beyond what we expected.

It took me nine months to write this review for one reason: I had thought so many times about how great Thirteenth Moon was that I had actually convinced myself that I'd already written a review! Even now, I feel so strongly about how great Rachel and Bill are that I want to make sure they still get our support.

There aren't enough words to express my gratitude for Rachel and Bill. The fact that they drove all the way to Cincinnati, Ohio for me to do our wedding is just incredible. They are so much fun and made me feel so good!

We LOVED Thirteenth Moon Photography. I originally wanted to meet with them because 13 has always been my favorite number, so their name caught my eye. When we met them we fell in love. They are so great to be around. On our wedding day they made me feel so beautiful and comfortable. Our pictures were amazing. They are very affordable and well worth every penny!

Bill and Rachel, a couple of amazing people who know love, and love to capture it, are the fabulous faces behind the lenses of Thirteenth Moon Photography. When I first met them I felt as if I was meeting a new couple of friends. They are extremely personable and then they show you their portfolio and your jaw drops. I chose them for their charisma and professionalism. I absolutely loved their creativity and vast array of wedding and engagement portrayals. Not one seemed to be the same and that sold me.
Then came the day of my engagement shoot and it was raining...this would normally be a nightmare but not for Thirteenth Moon Photography. Rachel improvised and got an umbrella as a prop and we went for it! The result was absolutely incredible photographs. Something very similar happened on our wedding day but in the midst of the storm, there was a sense of calmness within me because I knew what these photographers were capable of.
My husband and I agree that what makes Thirteenth Moon Photography the best is their “vision”. They are professionals that know what scenery, lighting; etc will make for the perfect shots. The amazing part is you will never know you are being “staged” or feel “stuffy” in anyway, they always know how to make you feel relaxed and yourself.
Their “product” is true art. We were so pleased that they were able to capture all of the unique moments of our wedding so beautifully. THANK YOU BILL AND RACHEL!

Bill and Rachel are amazing photographers and truly wonderful people. I can’t say enough great things about them and Thirteenth Moon Photography. I felt completely at ease with them and knew that we would get just the right mix of personal touches and professionalism that was needed on our wedding day. We had a few vendor mishaps that we weren’t sure how to handle, but Bill and Rachel stepped in and helped make sure everything went smoothly. We couldn’t have asked for better people to be on our side the day of our wedding. All around Thirteenth moon is a great company with wonderful people who are amazing photographers and are a superb value. Give Thirteenth Moon Photography a chance, you will not be disappointed. You might even make some new friends, we sure did!

Seriously the best choice I made during the whole wedding plan was contacting them to do my pictures. Planning a wedding in 3 months was stressful for sure but finding them was like a blessing. Rachel and Bill are seriously the best at what they do. They were sweet, attentive, professional, funny, and really knew how to defuse any situation. They keep contact with you even after the big day and truly want to be a friend! I love them and am so happy with the amazing pictures they took. For the quality of work they do they ought to charge twice as much as they do.

Thirteenth Moon Photography is PROFESSIONAL and WONDERFUL TO WORK WITH from start to finish! Being the Mother of the Groom, I knew that I had little say in the choices made for our son's wedding, and we were THRILLED with the choice of photographers! Bill and Rachel make a perfect team as they are caring and obviously desiring to capture the beautiful memories of the day...and they ABSOLUTELY DID! We were SO IMPRESSED that one of the team members seemed to be at the right place at the right time on the day of the wedding, yet they were never "in the way." Clearly Bill and Michelle had done their "homework" and knew EXACTLY what the Bride and Groom wanted...and the time it took to set up the MANY family shots between the ceremony and the reception AND the FABULOUS shots of the Bride, Groom and wedding party...was quick and painless for all involved. (We have been to MANY a wedding where we wondered if the reception would EVER START because the photographers took SO LONG taking those most important pictures!) We were SO IMPRESSED with the AMAZING, BREATHTAKING pictures that were taken...quickly and with MUCH PROFESSIONALISM....The finished product brings tears to my eyes every time I see the BEAUTIFUL, CREATIVE, AMAZING pictures of our son and daughter-in-law on their VERY special day!!

As any bride can tell you, when planning a wedding, there are million things to plan  and think about and then theres another million things you didn't even know you had to plan and think about. The bridal stress that almost every bride will experience at some point in her planning usually results from trying to get everything to come together to create your perfect day: the food, music, flowers, photographer, the dress, the bridesmaids dresses....the list goes on and on. Working with many different people and trying to coordinate every detail can be overwhelming. Thirteenth Moon Photography was the biggest blessing my husband and I were given for our wedding. Read on...

Like most brides, the photographer was definitely at the top of my priorities and one of the few areas I would be flexible with our budget. Our wedding was in Orlando, FL and we live in Ohio, so much of our planning with vendors had to be done via phone or email. I contacted multiple photographers in the area and researched each and every review site and portfolio I could find.  When I came across Thirteenth Moon Photography's website, I loved their style---and their prices! I emailed Rachel and within minutes (yes, minutes) she had emailed me back. Her bubbly and kind spirit was immediately evident even in just her email response. She was so excited for the opportunity to discuss my wedding with her...it was obvious she has a passion for what she does. We discussed the details on the phone shortly after our email exchange and I fell in love with her instantly! Within a few days, she had mailed me a super organized folder with details for our wedding as well as our contract. I still can't get over how affordable their packages are and what we received for our money. It's definitely the best investment I've ever made and probably will ever make. 

Four months before the wedding, my husband and I were going to be traveling to Orlando for our planning session with our reception site and we wanted to use the opportunity to meet with our vendors in person. We were literally only going to be in the area for less than 72 hours. Rachel and Bill worked with us to, not only travel to our hotel to meet with us, but to also travel with us to multiple sites so that we could take our engagement photos! During our photoshoot, Bill and Rachel made us feel so comfortable and by the end of the session, we honestly felt like they had become our good friends. Within a few days, our engagement photos were on the Thirteenth Moon website and they were STUNNING! I couldn't believe how beautiful they turned out! It really solidified that I had made the right choice and now, I couldn't wait to see how the wedding pictures would turn out. Within a week, I had all of the edited photos on a disk. Super fast!

In the months leading up to our wedding, the best communication I had with any vendor was with Thirteenth Moon. They were so dependable with their communication and no matter what I needed or what ridiculous idea or question I had, Bill and Rachel were there with a super fast response. A few weeks before the wedding, Thirteenth Moon sent me a planning list with how the timing of the day would go as well as my "dream photo" wish list for me to fill out. They helped me organize my day more so than my actual wedding planner did! 

When my husband and I left for Orlando a few days before our wedding, I was so excited to see Rachel and Bill again! It felt like I was getting together with old friends. Since we weren't going to use the bridal shower/trash the dress session included in our photo package, Thirteenth Moon agreed to meet us in Epcot in Disney World to take casual photos of our families as we traveled "around the world." Right away, both of our families could see why we had been raving about our photographers for the past few months. Rachel and Bill quickly became a part of our family and everyone loved them! What an incredible couple!

When the big day came, I was so thankful to have Thirteenth Moon there. They had the timeline with them the entire day and they kept everything running smoothly and seamlessly. Our package was an all-day package and I'm so happy we chose it! Thirteenth Moon captured the entire day beautifully. I can actually go through my wedding photos and I feel like I am re-living the entire day. Each picture brings an emotional response and the angles, lighting, and compositions are breath-taking! One of the most incredible things, I didn't even realize they were taking half of the pictures they took! Rachel and Bill were so behind-the-scenes. I've attended weddings where photographers really make their presence known (for better or worse) and the pictures always look stiff and unnatural. Our wedding photographs are so relaxed and authentic looking. Its hard for me to even find the words to describe just how beautiful they turned out. I'm actually getting tears as I write this review and reflect back on them. 

I can't say enough great things about this photographer. I feel like any compliment or praise I sing does not even come close to describing how incredible Thirteenth Moon Photography is. What Rachel and Bill have given to our family is such a blessing. They have not only given us the gift of timeless, gorgeous wedding photos, but they have also given us their friendship. I know you will not be disappointed with their work. Anyone can take pictures, but it takes talented artists to capture those amazing moments in life and when they can do it with loving personalities and kind hearts, it makes it that much more incredible.

What can I say but book them NOW!! You will not be sorry!! Rachel and Bill are awesome!! Not only are my pictures beautiful but we had a BLAST taking them! They did a great job keeping me calm during my hair and makeup! I will never forget Rachel and Rina singing "somebody's getting married!" or rapping the "Holiday Inn" :) Bill even made a Starbucks run to get me empty cups!! Rachel did a great job getting in all the shots we wanted without us missing our reception!! They took a ton of candid shots of me with my family that I love :) they really captured the spirt of our day!

I was the mother of the bride and we used Thirteenth Moon for my daughter's wedding. The pictures came out beautiful, but more importantly the personal touch, the warmth, and the extra effort they provide to make sure you get what you want was what made me so happy. As soon as I saw the engagement photos, I knew this was a lucky choice. We would not hesitate to recommend or use again (maybe for grandchild photos :) )

We could not be any happier with our choice for a wedding photographer. Rachel is so talented, her and her husband Bill have been a pleasure to work with from our first meeting. Our family shoot/engagement photos came out beautifully despite my 4yr old and 9 month old not being the type who smile for a camera! Still we ended up with amazing, creative family photos that we will always cherish. Our wedding photos are beatiful. Despite our day being rained out Rachel found ways to still make sure we ended up with plenty of gorgeous photos. We couldn't have made a better choice! I'd recommend Thirteenth Moon to anyone looking for a photographer for thier wedding, family photos, or anything other occasion! They're AWESOME!! If you can't tell already, WE LOVE THEM :)

Rachel and William were outstanding photographers for our wedding!! They made everyone feel extremely comfortable even with people who were camera shy. They were professional and willing to go the extra mile to help us out beyond taking photographs. My husband and I are so pleased with them that we are going to use them for our family portraits we will be doing soon. I love their excellent prices. You can't get any better then them - they are completely the best and we are 100% satisfied with their work.

Rachel and Bill restored our faith in photographers. We were married in April of 2011, and the photographer we chose for our engagement photos and for our wedding day was disappointing to say the least. We can't redo our wedding day, but we can redo our engagement pictures! We found Rachel and Bill and I was nervous that everything would turn out rushed, and low quality with bad angles just like before. I can't put into words how great our experience was! They were so friendly and knowledgeable that the session was fun from the start, which was an improvement already from our last experience!! The angles, the shots, the quality just blew my mind! They captured what I couldn't even ask for... I WISH we would have known about them for our wedding day, I can only imagine how much more they would have been able to shoot for us. They are efficent, friendly, and fun! Trust me... you want to hire them.

A very nice couple team who makes it easy and comfortable to just be yourself. Even with tons of nagging family around they were so sweet and kind and everyone loved them. They came up with very unique pcitures that represent "Us"

The most amazing thing though was that even though i live on the other side of the United States they were there for us whenever we had questions or concerns.

Rachel is an amazing photographer full of talent and personality!
From the moment you meet her, you feel like you are the best of friends.
She's extremely energetic and full of ideas and as friendly as they come. She is never afraid to play with a photographic request or idea of yours as well.
Rachel was the first photographer I have ever worked with and to this day the best. Her costs are extremely affordable and her work is just outstanding. Not to mention, you see your photos within a reasonable time frame unlike most photographers out there.

Overall, Rachel and Thirteenth Moon receive 5 out of 5 stars from for outstanding service, awesome personality/energy, and fabulous work!
She may be new to this site now, but I know she will have many more reviews in the future!

I highly recommend Thirteenth Moon!

My fiance' and I met with a few different photographers but after meeting Rachel of Thirteenth Moon Photography, there was no doubt in our minds who would be shooting our engagement shots AND our wedding. My now-husband is VERY camera shy and Rachel made him laugh and feel at ease during our photoshoots. She captured some raw and REAL shots of us. I love that she sat down with us and talked to us like friends before shooting anything. I believe that by doing so, she got a feel for our personalities and our albums really reflect that. We have now used Rachel to shoot not only our engagement shots, but our wedding, maternity photos, and shots of our newborn baby girl. Each and every time, Rachel got our photos to us well ahead of the time that she promised them. While she was presenting the edited shots to us, you could really tell how truly passionate she is about photography and life in general. Rachel is HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommended by this bride and mommy.

I had a tough schedule to work around before my wedding. Rachel met with me after work hours at a place that was on my way home. She went out of her way to make sure she knew exactly what I wanted.
During the ceremony she got right in it and took the best pictures of the entire event. She even took fabulous candids that were extremely funny to see.
To this day I still have people ask who she was and tell me how awesome she was because she wasnt afraid to get involved to get me the best shots possible.
As a side note; this team is a fabulous company to go with because not only were the photos great but they were so personable.
Thanks!

I felt a little like they didn't capture as much of our personality as we wanted. I think Bill did a good job capturing my husband before the wedding, very pensive, but when I look at other albums of their clients I don't feel they really gave me that "bride on her wedding day" look that I've seen in many others.

They did capture some pretty funny emotions.

I'd recommend them, but make sure you give a list of what you want. I tried to do that, but my husband forgot the props for what I planned, and my family didn't get me a list of pics they wanted so I had to do a lot of thinking on the spot.
