Wow, where to begin?! Rachel is amazing, her creative eye captured the true essence and beauty of our wedding day. Looking through the photos we recieved flooded us with with the exact emotions we were feeling on the day, a true moment captured in time. Its amazing being able to relive our special day. Rachel was amazing at articulating instruction without it feeling forced or fake. We are so in love with our experience that we have ensured that Rachel be present to capture our pregnancy and the birth of our baby in the up coming months. Couldn't recommended two little starfish enough! Thanks so much Rachel!

Rachel from Two Little Starfish was out photographer for our Wedding in March (prior to lock-down), lucky us! She did an absolutely amazing job with our images. We are beyond happy with them. Not only this but all our dealings leading up to the big day were efficient, friendly, and easy. Couldn't recommend Rachel more!
My husband and I can not recommend Rachel enough. From our first Skype call we felt Rachel’s beautiful calm nature. It might be a daunting thought to have someone with a camera in your personal space capturing such a special day but Rachel made us feel so at ease and we hardly noticed her while she worked her magic. We opted not to have too many creative photos taken and love how Rachel captured all those genuine heartfelt moments, stolen glances, cheeky grins and intimate moments. We were so grateful for all the photos of our guests too. So many smiles and heads thrown back in laughter. She really captured the love that was in the air. You can get so caught up with everything during your wedding day that those are some of the things you miss out on, so we are so grateful she was able to capture that for us. We are in love with our beautiful memories Rachel has captured for us and the quality is superb. We couldn’t be happier and are transported back when we look at them. Just beyond amazing. Thank you so much Rachel for everything.

When my husband and I were searching for a photographer for our wedding, we found it difficult to find a photographer that captured the styles we wanted; until we came across Two Little Starfish. We knew immediately we would like to work with Rachel. Her style covered the dreamy, romantic, moody pictures we wanted, as well as documentary style for the day. When we skyped with Rachel, she was very personable, easy-going, and we were confident that she would be the perfect wedding photographer for us. On our wedding day, Rachel was dedicated, and was clearly passionate for the art of photography. Rachel is a magician behind the camera lens and has a great talent to spot excellent photo opportunities. She was there early in the morning, and stayed till late at night, all the while, energetic, full of laughs and kept the photoshoots light and cheerful. When we received the photos, my goodness, so much love for Rachel’s work. She captured the affection and happiness of our wedding day, and completely exceeded our expectations. We have looked over our wedding photos over and over, always bringing a smile to our faces as she managed to photograph a lot of memories that we did not see on the day or have forgotten. If you are looking for a talented and dedicated photographer, look no further. Rachel is the full package. Thank you, Two Little Starfish, we would not have wanted it any other way.

What Rachel captured on our wedding day was just spectacular. From the beginning when we first met Rachel, she was so lovely and helpful. We had never been involved with professional photography, so didn’t really know what to ask or what we really wanted, but Rachel had all the answers and nothing was a problem. She is an amazing creative and talented photographer. We could not be more over the moon with our wedding photographs and will treasure them forever. We also did a night shoot, the photo is jaw dropping, with the milky way, and the moon rising on the horizon. She has manipulated a couple of our photos too which are just stunning. Thanks so much Rachel xx

We were so pleased with our wedding experience with two little starfish. Our photographer Rachel was absolutely amazing!! She was so friendly, warm and gave us a lot of advice to make things run smoothly. She took everything we said and catered to our vision of what we wanted for our pictures. she also managed to capture every little moment, some I didn't even realize were happening. Rachel is a highly skilled professional photographer, with great work ethic. We loved her framing, mise en scène and emotion she puts when she capture photos. Thank you ever so much! Jaysi and Kaleb

I picked two little starfish after viewing their photos online and was blown away at how amazing her images were. She is not just a photographer but an artist with a passion and each and every photo taken is high quality. Rachel came all the way to Phuket to take our wedding photos and they are absolutely phenomenal. Her professionalism and easy going nature just blew me away. She was super easy to deal with and made everyone relaxed. I felt like I had another friend at the wedding - she was just so so amazing to deal with I cannot recommend her highly enough. If you are looking for a fun, creative, easygoing photographer do not look elsewhere you have already found the one! Two Little Starfish will capture your most magical moments so you can treasure them forever! Her photography is worth every penny and more!

As a Wedding Designer and owner of Liddington Gardens Wedding Venue in Kerikeri, Northland, I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Rachel as photographer, and her husband Eric as Videographer, many times, either individually or as a superb team. Their talents are immeasurable and I can highly recommend Two Little Starfish Photography, and Videography, to any discerning bride wishing to capture those magical, moody, hilarious and emotionally charged moments as they occur throughout your wedding day. With professional sensitivity and an extremely talented artistic appreciation, both Rachel and Eric, individually or as a duo, will ensure you feel relaxed and comfortable before the lens so you may enjoy every moment, knowing you will have those precious memories to treasure long after your perfect day has drawn to a close.

Can't recommend Rachel from Two Little Starfish Photography highly enough! The photography was one aspect of our wedding day that was really important to me and I'm so glad we chose her to capture our day. Rachel made everything really easy and put in a lot of effort prior to the day to talk with us and visit our venue. She had an amazing selection of teaser photos waiting in my inbox the day after the wedding. The day goes by so fast so it's wonderful to have a great set of photos to last a lifetime!
