Kind Words + Raves

“I am completely in awe of how you captured the wedding day. I mentioned to you that I like the photojournalistic and wanted real, raw emotion and that is exactly what I received. The photos are stunning, not just because of the image quality and location and all of that, but because I can feel every bit of joy emanating from the photos. I like to think Keith and I have a weird, super personal relationship that doesn’t necessarily show itself in the romantic way, but when I look at the pictures I see every feeling we both have towards each other. Not to mention all of the candid moments from our family and friends that were so cute and honest and special. You were truly the best person for the job ; I am so thankful you came all the way from OKC to be there.” – Lisa and Keith


“We are so totally in love with the wedding photos. Ryan and I have been savoring going through them and sharing them with our family and friends. You are so talented, and I am so grateful you were the one to document our day. I can’t imagine better photography from anyone. We are so lucky to have your beautiful photos to remember the day. Every time I look through them again I notice something else I love and choose a new favorite. We have been inundated with compliments since posting them on Facebook! Thanks for sharing your gift with Ryan and I. We’ll treasure your photos forever.” – Mary Ellen and Ryan


“Rachel!  We CANNOT thank you enough for being a part of our wedding. We not only enjoyed you being there that day, we also appreciated all your hard work (you and your assistant) and the end result! These pictures are INCREDIBLE!! We are blown away with how amazing they are. We couldn’t have asked for better pictures documenting our day. Thank you again. We will give you all the credit as we post and print away!! Thank you again for your wonderful talent, patience, hard work, and positive attitude throughout this whole process. You made our wedding experience awesome!”- Kayla and Phil


“If I planned my entire wedding again, I would pick Rachel. Rachel is located in the Oklahoma City area, but loves to travel. I am in the Wichita, KS area and expanded my horizons when I wasn’t finding what I wanted in photography right in my area. From the moment we connected, I knew I made a good decision. First off, she responds right away. That may seem small, but brides understand. You can’t afford to wait 2 weeks for a response to an email. You never have to wait with her. Not to mention how fast she gets the files (pictures) out. I was expecting to wait a while. I used her for my wedding and also my engagement session. She knew we were a little behind schedule and wanted the Save the Dates out soon. She had those beautiful images to me.. FAST.

Lets get to the actual pictures themselves. I am so, so, so impressed. Just what was in my head. I loved my engagement session and wasn’t sure how she would out-do herself for my wedding. But she did. They are gorgeous. She was open to my suggestion, but obviously has millions of creative ideas herself for her clients. She was a joy to work with. She felt more like a friend than anything else. My head was in the clouds the day of my wedding. Rachel showed up early and immediately started snapping away. I had blanked and never made “a list” of the specific pictures I wanted taken. Now looking back at all the pictures, she captured everything I wanted from that day. She is extremely professional. Start to finish, I have no complaints. Photography is one of those huge things you want to check off your list at the very beginning of the planning process. It might be the most important choice you make. Do yourself a favor and hire Rachel. I never once worried and the whole experience was stress free. I know I’ll look back in 50 years I love the images of that day. They are beautiful.” – Crosby and Justin


“RACHEL.  SPEECHLESS.  Thank you thank you thank you, for capturing our wedding so beautifully and bringing out every single beautiful detail that was so special and meaningful to us.  I cannot imagine anyone who could’ve captured us better.  Geeezzzeee.  Tyler and I are both overflowing with gratitude and excitement! <3” – Anna and Tyler


“Oh my goodness!!  Rachel, the photos are so wonderful!!!!! Thank you so so much for photographing such a special day! I love them so much and can’t wait to treasure these moments for years to come. We truly appreciate you and are so glad we got to know you and have you be a part of it!” – Sloane and Matt


“After going through a few portfolios of photographers online, Rachel was the only photographer we wanted to capture the memories of our wedding day, her style really caught our eye. Before we even met her we were excited about working with her and she did not disappoint. We love how our wedding pictures came out! She was a pleasure to work with from the first meeting to the sun setting on our wedding day. She was so easy going and also knew what she was doing- we felt comfortable and at ease with her being a part of special day, knowing that we were getting the best pictures possible. She even had a bobby pin in her pocket for a bridesmaid in need, truly a sign of a photographer that’s with it. Rachel is so creative, talented and professional, she really gave us more than we bargained for and we are absolutely delighted with the pictures of our wedding.” – Elisa and John


“Having Rachel as a photographer for our wedding was a great choice! Not only because she is a great personal friend, but because she has a great talent for photography. She pays such great attention to detail and always makes sure that she gets every shot she can. Our wedding day was much like a lot of other wedding days, BUSY! Rachel was so patient with us as we prepared for our big day, and was able to catch a ton of great candid shots in the process. We really didn’t have many ideas as to what we wanted when it came to our pictures, all we knew was that we just wanted them to be “in the moment,” and capture all the memorable details of our special day, big or small. Rachel totally picked up on that and used her gift to capture amazing photos. There were a lot of people who came to our wedding, and there was so much going on, especially during the reception, but Rachel was able to capture so many different moments and details. There were times where something may happen that we wanted a picture of, and she was right there to get the shot. I know how passionate she is about her gift, and she makes sure to be at the top of her game. Rachel knows what is popular among photography today, and stays current with the technology to produce the clearest shots. If you have a wedding, or any other event coming up, and you want to remember it with some brilliant photography, then Rachel is the obvious choice. You will not regret it, I promise!” – Audrey and Jordan


“Rachel, I cannot tell you how much joy the photos brought us!  You are such a talent and we have been blessed by you.  Thank you so much.  PS.  We should totally hang out sometime because we love you!” – Sydney and Jake


“YAY!!!!!  Thank you SO much Rachel! These pictures are unbelievable. I cannot thank you enough. You are SO talented and couldn’t be happier with everything you have provided us.  You rock!!!!!!” – Meredith and Kyle


“Rachel is amazing!! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect photographer! Her pictures she took of our wedding were absolutely gorgeous. We both loved her!! She was so friendly and easy to work with! She took all of our ideas into consideration and also came up with many awesome ideas for us herself.  She was so easy to work with and we appreciate it so much. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a creative and awesome photographer!! She is wonderful!!!” – Paige and Ethan


“We recently had the pleasure of working with Rachel. We had an engagement session scheduled and we were both pretty nervous about it; having someone to document our PDA is kind of nerve-racking! However, as soon as we arrived, Rachel made us feel completely comfortable. She gave us helpful direction without making us too pose-y. She let us interact the way we normally do and captured our moments beautifully. When she says she loves to document love, it is so true, and it is so evident. From the moment our session began to the moment we ran through the sprinklers at the end, we never felt awkward; and the experience made us feel more in love after than we did before.

She finished our photos so quickly! We were expecting to wait weeks and she got them to us within a few days! As soon as I saw them, I cried (just a little!). They are perfect, better than we could have imagined. Planning a wedding is stressful, but I know that with Rachel on our side, our wedding day memories will be flawlessly and beautifully captured and we have nothing to worry about.” -Sarah and Cary


Rachel and her team do amazing work. My husband hates his photo being taken and Rachel Photographs captured the most candid moments without a fuss. The pictures of our wedding looked like something out of a magazine. Trust Rachel Photographs to capture the most beautiful natural photographs with ease and style. Our wedding was one of the happiest days to date and Rachel Photographs was able to capture every happy memory, even the ones we didn’t get to see at the time. Rachel and her team captured truly classic shots that I will cherish forever. Thank you for giving us such beautiful memories!” – Francesca and Andy


“Our experience with Rachel was amazing.  She captured images from our big day that I never knew could be taken in such a magical way.  Rachel is a true artist and if you have the opportunity to work with her, you too will see just how phenomenal her work is.  Patient, kind, sweet, and beautiful, Rachel gave us images that we will treasure forever.  Thanks again!”  – Lauren and Ryan


When I started planning my wedding I knew that choosing a good photographer was a top priority.  Years ago when my parents got married they chose a photographer who didn’t have much experience and wound up with only 2 photographs to remember their special day.  When I saw Rachel’s online portfolio I remember thinking that it was exactly the look I had dreamed of for our wedding day.  Our location made planning shooting times a little difficult but Rachel was such a good sport all the way through, giving us several date options so we could choose one that worked with our busy schedules and then driving to Tulsa for the engagement and bridal portraits.  I love how she enthusiastically jumped on board with our ideas, like shooting in a greenhouse.  She even helped wrangle our dog when we decided to bring him along for the engagement shoot.  When she wasn’t taking photos on the wedding day she was lending a hand helping us set things up.  On top of all these wonderful things, we were crazy about all of the photos we received.  Choosing Rachel as our photographer turned out to be an even better choice than we could have dreamed it would be.”  – Whitney and Richard


“Seriously, I’m absolutely in love with all the photos you took. You both caught every moment I wanted! When my step siblings got married in the last few years, they were both disappointed in how their photos turned out. My mom was worried mine wouldn’t turn out good and when she saw how both you were there for every moment she knew they would be wonderful. When she saw them, she said you were incredible and how special you made the wedding for Charlie and me! Thank you a millions times and more. ❤️”  – Haleigh and Charlie


“You are magical. Thank you so much for these awesome pictures. I’ve enjoyed watching and reflecting on that blessed day!   Thank you for being part of it and for capturing it all so well!” – Katie and Nima
