It was our prayer that our wedding would reflect God's grace and goodness in every aspect... Working with Rachel was truly an answer to prayer. We saw her heart for the Lord, her talent in photography and her down to earth demeanor that made my camera-shy husband completely at ease; and we knew that she was truly a gift. She was professional, organized, timely in her communication,and delivered our edited pictures (beautifully packaged) very quickly after the wedding! We were so touched by the whole experience with her. One moment stood out to me: Ryan and I had an intimate and emotional "first look" before the wedding. Rachel was there, taking gorgeous pictures, and not only did we have tears streaming down our faces, but Rachel did too! That's the type of photographer she is. She truly cares about and shares with you in your special moments. Thank you Rachel, for documenting the most important day of our lives!

As funny as this may sound to some people, I prayed about every detail of our wedding. As I prayed about a photographer, Richard and I received many referrals from friends. We started contacting these photographers, but none of them were working out. As the wedding grew closer, I started to get anxious knowing it would be hard to find someone available on short notice. That’s when I was referred to Rachel. The photos I saw of her work were exactly what I was looking for – spontaneous, natural and fun! I was so excited to find out she was available on our wedding day and her prices were in our budget. Only God! Rachel took the time to sit down with us before our big day. She looked at all the ideas we found online and asked us great questions so she could be sure she understood what we wanted. As you can see by our pictures, they are amazing! She truly has a gift. She knows how to use natural lighting, set up fun shots, and capture spontaneous moments, as well as, those special intimate moments. We were so blessed to have her capture our memories of that beautiful day.

Rachel was everything we wanted and so much more. We are super uncomfortable having pictures taken in general let alone pictures that the everyone was going to see, but Rachel didn't let our awkwardness or nervousness get in the way at all. She was kind, funny, and patient with us from the first engagement session all the way to the wedding day. And of course, the important part, her pictures are beautiful. Now we have a plethora of material to look back on when we start to lose our minds.

Not only is Rachel a talented photographer-with a natural eye for bringing out beauty in ordinary things-she is very kind and genuine! She makes you feel comfortable! I highly recommend Rachel Joy Photo! She's great to work with, and her pictures always turn out fabulous!

We are so happy with our engagement and wedding photos! Despite the fact that I feel very awkward when having my picture taken, we have many beautiful photos that capture our love for one another and our special day. This is all thanks to Rachel's patience and talent. We look forward to working with her again for any future photography needs!

Rachel did an amazing job on our wedding photos! She listened to what we were looking for, and more than delivered. She is incredibly nice, and was fun to have with us on our big day. We can't say enough how grateful we are to have had her be our photographer!
