“Besides deciding to get married, choosing Rachel Blackwell as our photographer was the best decision we made about our wedding! We knew that we wanted a good photographer since photos are one of the few things that last past the wedding day, and Rachel did not disappoint. We had over 1,000 photos to remember our special day and we loved every one of them! She made the whole process super easy and stress-free and made sure to capture everything we wanted. She is really good at directing everyone on where to go and where to be for pictures and gets it all done in a timely manner. We are also really glad we did engagement photos because they were so much fun! She made us feel so comfortable and told us exactly what to do in order to get the best photos possible. I was able to trust her 100% and she is also really good about listening to what we wanted and working around that. She took timeless photos that we will be able to display and share for the rest of our lives. She is an amazing wedding photographer and I would recommend her to anyone. The only problem is that you will have a hard time picking out which photos to print!”

“Rachel Blackwell is absolutely AMAZING!! We have been so blessed to
have her photograph our engagement session and our wedding day. From
the first time I meet Rachel, she was so excited for us and wanted to
take our ideas with her creative style to the next level. Throughout
the entire wedding planning process Rachel was always there for us,
offering helpful advice to make our day very special. She is
completely detailed oriented and always prepared for any changes big
or small. She offers more than just the best of the best pictures,
she is so personable and makes you feel completely comfortable in
trusting her with every detail. She convinced my now husband and I to
do a first look before the ceremony on our wedding day and it was the
best decision we have ever made regarding our wedding. Not only was it
just as special of a moment as when I walked down the aisle, we got
the most breath taking photos. After our wedding Rachel was great at
getting all our photos to us shortly after we got back from our
honeymoon, which is unheard of in the wedding photography business!
Within a month we had all our photos and she was working with me on
our album. She even designed our Christmas cards! She is so creative
and is the BEST of the best! Her passion for photography and her
creative vision for every couple is a true gift. My husband and I felt
blessed to call her our wedding photographer and now after our wedding
we feel more blessed to call her a great friend.”

“Working with Rachel was one of the most pleasant experiences during the wedding planning process. We set up an engagement shoot first and as soon as we were done, we knew we had chosen correctly. Rachel is super sweet, nice and professional. We got the pictures shot quickly and they were amazing. Rachel knows how to use light, different settings and composes her pictures so they are different than other photographers. Rachel returned our engagement pictures within a week and our wedding pictures within two weeks – amazing turnaround time for a photographer! Rachel’s photographs were amazing and timeless – we cannot imagine having chosen a different photographer and will be contacting Rachel to photograph our children when that time comes!”
