JADE & CHRIS Wedding Photography Client
From the time we met Rachel we loved her, her spark and positive outlook. She was excited as we were at times and so receptive to any ideas we had for photos. We could not recommend her more highly. The photos are stunning and we are blessed to have these as beautiful memories in years to come.

LAURA & DAVID Wedding Photography Client
You’ve done such an amazing job though - David and I were sitting there going “oh yes, I’d forgotten we did that!” and it just brought back more memories, which was really cool. It’s funny, because on the day of the wedding, I almost felt like I was missing out a bit, whilst I was getting ready and doing all the things that brides and bridal parties do, and you managed to get in and capture what the lads were doing, what the guests were doing… so looking through the photos, I got to re-experience how it felt for me on the day, but also be a guest at my own wedding and see the parts that I didn’t get to see 🙂

We looked at the images over a few nights and they are the most amazing things i have ever seen. There is not one thing I would have changed. You have captured the most beautiful shots. I love all the ones of my grandma, she does not often smile but you managed to capture numerous smiling images of her.

It was fantastic to have such an amazing Photographer that captured so many special moments without becoming intrusive and interfering, and our two on one time with you was exactly what we needed after our ceremony….lots of love, some laughs and some quiet time to enjoy the moment together. You also managed to take some beautiful family shots and candid shots that will be treasured for a lifetime. The end result was stunning, we have some of the most wonderful photo's I have seen and within the quickest time frame I have ever heard of for a wedding shoot.
