We met Rachel when she was photographing a friends wedding, and we loved her instantly. She is so warm, and makes everyone feel at ease instantly. We were delighted when she was available to photograph our wedding. From the moment we booked Rachel, she was an absolute delight. When we met her at the venue (which is my Dads house), she was seeing things and possible photo opportunities that I haven’t seen in all the years I had lived there. Rachel asked all sorts of questions and ensured she knew who everyone was so she could be sure to keep an eye on them on the day and capture any key moments.When the day came, Rachel was immediately part of the bridal party and was making sure everyone was OK all while capturing the most amazing photographs, I have no idea how she got round as many places as she did! Rachel managed to capture some some moments that I didn’t believe could be photographed. Those moments that words cant describe…. and are normally impossible to photograph. In her photos, Rachel captures the emotions of the day and has made them into the most beautiful photos, which can be treasured for a life time. Words cant express how happy we are with the photos, and what they mean to us. We cannot recommend Rachel highly enough.
Thank you Rachel. You are wonderful!
Everything happens for a reason and finding Rachel to photograph our wedding was meant to be!! When we first met Rachel for a pre wedding chat, we instantly felt comfortable around her. On the day, Rachel fitted in amazingly with our family and friends and it was as if we’d all known her forever. She made us laugh from start to finish and was just a pleasure to be around! We love our photographs and we will cherish them forever! We can’t thank you enough!
We can’t recommend Rachel highly enough – what a wonderful human and amazingly talented photographer! Rachel is so kind and lovely and instantly puts you at ease – we felt like we’d known her for years. Rachel photographed our wedding in July and did a fantastic job. Not only have we got beautiful shots of us as couple/with our families, we also have an amazing array of photos of all of our guests, laughing, chatting and dancing. The photos really capture the warmth and happiness of the day and show the day as it was. Rachel has got brilliant attention to detail and has produced some really stunning shots. We’re over the moon that we have such wonderful photos – thank you so much Rachel!
Right I’m going to be soppy now (which doesn’t happen often). I saw the picture of Tony on your Instagram and I was immediately taken back to seeing him standing there. In that moment I saw him, so many things went through my head and not one of them was a regret because it had all lead up to us both being here. Here was the perfect man who is kind, caring, gorgeous and can make me laugh like no one else and he was waiting for me. The man in that photo has held me when I cried so much I couldn’t breath because I was worried my life would end at 26, he told me I was beautiful when I lost all my hair, he always pushed me when I wanted to give up and on several occasions he’s made me laugh so hard I’ve farted (true story). Some people might look at that photo and appreciate how perfect and beautiful it is but in that photo I remember how excited I was to see the man who gave me a reason to get out of bed in the morning when I felt like I couldn’t carry one. That photo will always remind me of how much I adore that man and how I wouldn’t change a single thing in my life as it brought us together on that roof. Seeing that photo made me so happy I could burst and I’ll be honest I cried. You did that. Your perfect work brought back every single thing back to me I thought while I was standing there and for that I can’t say thank you enough
I am a graphic designer so work with images and photos every day – I knew exactly what I wanted (Darrell trusted my judgement on this one, and what a fab judgement it was….. Even if I do say so myself ha). I researched for weeks and weeks! I knew I wanted a documentary style photographer with a relaxed feel, no crazy filters or Photoshop effects. Having been a bridesmaid 5 times I also wanted a female photographer as they are so much more understanding of how you’re feeling – takes one to know one and all that jazz. When I found Rachel’s website I loved everything about her photos from the colours and angles to the natural styling and relaxed ‘models’. Her black and white photos also stood out massively. From the quality of her photos she was far and above anything we had seen. From Rachel’s first email I really felt at ease – she oozes positivity and obviously LOVES weddings and her job. I can’t put into words how happy we are with the photos and service we have received!!
I don’t even know where to begin when writing this review! Rachel is just incredible. We absolutely loved having her as our photographer as she made us feel so at ease and we had such a laugh! You can tell Rachel adores her job and she is an amazing artist. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone, in fact we’ll be seeing her again soon at my friend’s wedding! We feel so lucky to have Rachel’s photographs as our memory of the best day ever. Thank you Rachel, you are awesome xxx
They say a picture says a thousand words so what can we say? Rachel, you captured our wedding day perfectly and every time we look at the photos, happy moments come flooding back. We love the way the natural happiness was captured on film as opposed to the “smile for the camera images”; these are the ones we value the most and that can never be re-created. If you are planning a wedding you need to check this fabulous photographer out. Her portfolio of consistently incredible shots is nothing short of impressive yet she has her own unique style that sets her apart from the many other photographers out there. She will get to know you before the big day and meet your style perfectly and do whatever she has to in order to get the perfect shot (including standing in the middle of Hope St with cars swerving everywhere but that picture is one of my favourites)! Rachel also has a very valuable skill with the ability to capture the most intimate moments yet is never intrusive; she mingled with everyone and blended seamlessly on the day and so many people commented on how lovely she was and still ask after her, many months on! She was the most welcome addition and we laughed non-stop in the midst of the chaos all day! She made the whole process so easy and fun! Rachel is not just a photographer there to take a picture; she is someone who will craft an image that you probably never had the vision for and you will be absolutely thrilled with the final pictures. We cannot recommend her highly enough. Rachel, you truly are such an amazingly gifted photographer and I’m so happy we met you; you were the final piece of our wedding dream and we are so grateful for everything. Anyone getting married definitely looks this girl up; she will capture the most wonderful memories that will last you a lifetime and that in itself is priceless. Thank you for everything!
