Rachael Foster Photography
This was the second wedding that Rachael photographed for us within the past year. We felt like we had an old friend coming back to join the party. She's delightful as a person and completely unobtrusive as a photographer. We were so pleased with the pictures from the first wedding and can't wait to see this set.
With her artistic eye and natural talent, Rachael captures every moment in a beautiful frame. She is helpful, flexible and most importantly, is a fun member to have as part of your wedding party all day long! I enjoyed looking at my wedding photos almost as much as I enjoyed my wedding day! I highly recommend Rachael for engagement and wedding photos
Rachael was wonderful to work with. She was very helpful, patient, and the photos turned out wonderfully. We couldn't ask for anything more. Would definitely use her again.
Rachael Foster is wonderful! She takes breathtaking photographs and captured some wonderful moments on our wedding day. She is very professional and helps wherever she can. We had so much fun with her on our wedding day. The pictures turned out so beautifully with a short turn-around time. Really a wonderful photographer. Thank you Rachael!
Rachael Foster and her team were fabulous and I would highly recommend her to anyone in the DC metro area looking for a photographer. We were recommended to Rachael when we first got engaged by a coworker of my fiance, who also used Rachael for her wedding. Right after our intial meeting with Rachael, we knew she would be prefect. We had both our engagement photos and wedding photos done by her.
Her prices are great, she was always very responsive to any emails I had sent to her, and she was always great at putting the bride and groom first. I used reviews to help me choose many of my vendors, so I hope this helps any future brides to be out there!
I would definetely recommend her to any friends and family that may be looking for a photographer in the future and hope that we cross paths again!
Rachael was wonderful! She kept me relaxed all day and did a great job capturing all the special moments. I hardly noticed her at the reception, but all the pictures were great!
I'm thrilled with the pictures she took for...
Rachael was great to work with! Her enthusiasm and creativity is amazing! Our engagement and wedding pictures are perfect. She helped our personalities shine through in our pictures, and was able to capture so many priceless moments at the wedding. Thanks Rachael!
We absolutely LOVED working with Rachael! The photographs turned out better than we could have ever dreamed! She is really easy going, but was also very helpful and not afraid to take charge the day of the wedding. I would definitely recommend her to photograph your wedding!
Rachael has a very distinct style. Our pictures are relaxed and fun, she really captured our day in the way we wanted it to be portrayed.
Congratulations! You have found your photographer!
Rachael is simply A M A Z I N G!
She is very professional, very prompt in responding to her emails and extremely helpful.
She came in early on the day of the wedding. She's extremely kind and energetic. My guests absolutely loved her and everyone was asking about her after the wedding.
She's very creative and her pictures are just amazing. Working with her is so easy! She takes the stress out of the event and you will barely even notice that she's there during the reception.
Also, she's very affordable! I honestly believe she should charge at least twice as much for her work!
My husband who is very interested in photography noticed that she has great equipments.
We feel very lucky to have found her and hope to work with her in the future for our family...
Rachael was absolutely amazing to work with -- she was very responsive whenever I emailed her with a question, and was sure to arrive everywhere we needed her to be early on the big day. She had that "something" that made my now-husband and I feel comfortable with her at every step of the process. From the moment we sat down with her at our initial meeting, to our engagement session, to our wedding day, she made us feel totally at ease and took into account exactly what we wanted. She also provided us with literally THOUSANDS of pictures from our wedding day -- every second of that day was recorded for us (which is so important because the day FLEW by!). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rachael to a friend, and can't wait to use her again for special events photography!
Rachael was a pleasure to work with; she was very responsive to all our pre-wedding questions and communication, including some unique requests of mine. At the wedding, she was everywhere but nowhere - in a skillful photographer kind of way where she managed to shoot all the important events but not be in the way of them happening. I would definitely recommend her to other couples!
Rachael was very professional and flexible, I would highly recommend her services.
Rachael Foster is absolutely amazing. She was with us for 7+ hours on the day of our wedding (with an assistant) and we barely even noticed she was there. She fit right into the group, and guests are still complimenting us on "how sweet our photographer was". Not only is Rachael one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet, the photos from our wedding are hands down amazing, and we couldn't be happier with them. We met with Rachael twice before our wedding. The first time to get to know her and decide if we wanted to hire her as our photographer, and the second time was about a month before the wedding when we went over more details about the big day. You can't help but love Rachael once you've met her. She makes you feel completely at ease when you're with her, which was very important to us when trying to find a photographer for our wedding. When we weren't with her in person, if I had a question I'd shoot her and e-mail and she'd get back to me almost immediately, which also helped make me feel more comfortable throughout the planning process. If you need an talented, sweet, and caring photographer - Rachael's your girl!
Rachael did an amazing job taking our wedding photos! She is a true artist and was able to capture the feeling and most poignant moments of the day. It was so important to me to not only have a great selection of shots of us, but to have photos of all of our guests. I was so pleased that we were able to send our dear family members and friends their pictures at the wedding. With the help of an assistant, they provided full coverage so we now have photos of all the behind the scene, anticipatory moments before the wedding, through the ceremony and the reception. I seriously look at my photos daily (my wedding was four months ago!) and still love them to pieces. I am having a hard time selecting my favorites because there are so many. And talk about bang for your buck! We did not have a budget to spend an exorbitant amount on a photographer – I’m just so happy that this didn’t compromise the quality of our photos. We absolutely love them and couldn’t be happier with our experience with Rachael, from our engagement photo shoot to the big day. Thanks Rachael!
Rachael was absolutely wonderful. She was easy and fun to work with and the pictures came out fabulous. She has such amazing talent! I would recommend her to every bride who wants a photographer to capture the moments so you can relive your wedding through the photos!
Rachel Foster was just wonderful to work with and I'd look forward to hiring her again and again for parties and family events. She was there is assist in a million ways, executingy desires to a tee and constantly ensuring that her style matched with what I wanted to get out of that day. She's incredibly flexible, sweet, and bended to my every need...and I was a high maintenance bride! It was just a pleasure working with her and I'd recommend her time and again!
We are thrilled with the photos Rachael took for our engagement shoot. She truly captured our personalities and all the feelings associated with the location - where we got engaged! Rachael completely put us at ease and we felt so comfortable just being ourselves and actually had a blast during the shoot! I love that our pictures truly represent us together in locations that have been important settings in our relationship. The pictures are so gorgeous and look straight out of a magazine. Thank you Rachael! We are so looking forward to using you on our big day in September!
From her flexible, laid back demeanor to her artsy yet candid flair, Rachael was a perfect fit from start to finish. She captured the day with creativity and precision and, more importantly, took the time to understand my vision for the day. Do yourself a favor, and look no further! I can't say enough about Rachael's work.
Rachel Foster Photography is a wedding planner's best friend. Rachel and her team, worked great with the couple. Her work was amazing how they were able to capture those special moments, naturally. Her team was very mindful at the schedule we had to keep and staying behind the scenes. It was such a great pleasure working with Rachel Foster Photography and we look forward to working with this A+ team again!!!
I had the pleasure of working with Rachael at a reception in the Newseum in D.C. - she was extremely professional and easy to work with. I saw some shots from the evening and she really captured the event beautifully!
Rachael takes amazing pictures. She has a way of capturing the most beautiful moments. Thanks for sharing the pictures with us. We look forward to working with you again in the future!
My style is creative photojournalism. I capture events as they happen with minimal intrusion--but I can also take charge and organize people for family and bridal portraits. I try to keep things relaxed and fun, while still getting beautiful images.
My work has been featured by The Washingtonian, Bridal Guide, The Lovely Find, Capitol Romance, and Paper Moon Weddings, among others.
I encourage couples to choose a photographer for two reasons: great images and great attitude. Here's why: I probably spend more time with the couple than any other single person at the wedding. As the photographer, I follow them the entire day--not only during the big moments, but also at the behind-the-scenes interactions with their closest family and friends.Whoever you choose to work with on your wedding day, make sure you feel 100% comfortable with their style and their personality in advance. It really makes a difference!
I always seek to take gorgeous photos while being as helpful and unobtrusive as possible. The greatest compliment a bride or groom can give me is to say that I felt like a natural part of their day. That's why I love these comments:
"Rachael was wonderful! She kept me relaxed all day and did a great job capturing all the special moments. I hardly noticed her at the reception, but all the pictures were great!"
"(Rachael) had that 'something' that made my now-husband and I feel comfortable with her at every step of the process. From the moment we sat down with her at our initial meeting, to our engagement session, to our wedding day, she made us feel totally at ease and took into account exactly what we wanted."
"(Rachael) is helpful, flexible and most importantly, is a fun member to have as part of your wedding party all day long!"
I would love to meet you and learn more about your wedding. Please call or email to set up a complimentary consultation and see if I'm the right fit for your wedding.
I consider multiple weddings per weekend on a case by case basis.
