Rachael was incredible! Rachael is so on top of it and so professional she even helped suggest areas that the coordinator had missed. The pictures look fantastic, beautiful and relaxed, despite the fact I was stressed and am awkward anyway. The pictures of the reception are amazing and so much fun. She even got good pictures of my dogs! She recommended my makeup artist too (who was also amazing). I could not recommend her more.
When my husband and I got engaged, Rachael was the first person we booked!. She's like family to us since she was the photographer at my sons wedding (2014) and my daughters wedding (2016). She is an incredible and professional photographer. She's very organized, timely, fun, and personable! She definitely puts everyone at ease.
It rained at our wedding and it didn't even phase her. She turned the rain into beautiful photo opportunities and in return made us feel like it was planned all along! When we received the final photos she met all our expectations and more! I would definitely recommend Rachael for your upcoming special occasion.
Rachael is amazing! Her enthusiasm and energy during our engagement session and wedding photos made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and created natural looking poses. I can’t help smiling every time I look through the wedding photo gallery, and the images really capture the full experience of the wedding. We’re already getting lots of compliments from guests and Rachael has made it easy to share photos with friends and family. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer, stop looking and choose Rachael. I can’t recommend her enough!
Rachael made sure to meet with us prior to the wedding at the chapel where our ceremony was to be held. She wanted to make sure she knew the grounds and our preference for shooting spots, so that would save us time the day of the weeding. I really appreciated her professionalism, charisma, and calm demeanor. As a bride, you know how intense this moment can be. She was also flexible and took in consideration what we wanted. She guided us and captured precious moments that I will hold dearly forever.
My wedding planner recommended Rachael Hall for my wedding photography, and man did she pick a winner! Rachael was absolutely amazing, from our engagement shots all the way through the very end of the wedding, she caught every moment perfectly. Honestly, she delivered so many amazing shots... that I can't even decide what to order, because they are ALL gorgeous! Not to mention that Rachael herself is a pretty awesome lady. She is so much fun to be around, and she kept me calm throughout the entire event. Her sense of humor is awesome and her heart is as big as they come, and I'm so happy to have met her and call her a friend. I can't recommend her highly enough. She's simply outstanding, in all aspects, and her work is top notch!
Rachael photographed my wedding this past May and I can't begin to express how amazing the entire process was from start until the last picture was taken that evening. Not only is she an incredible photographer, she's got a great sense of humor and is very compassionate. We met on-site so she could familiarize herself with the venue and we could develop a game plan for the first look and posed shots of my husband and I and our families which put me at ease. On our wedding day, Rachael and my Day of Planner worked together seamlessly to ensure that we were on-time and where we needed to be. This allowed me to relax and be a part of the moment which any bride would appreciate. I'm not lying when I say Rachael is like a photography ninja! I don't recall seeing or hearing her snapping away during the ceremony or reception but we have some stellar candid shots which made looking at the final collection so much more enjoyable. Our wedding pictures are natural and gorgeous and I can't thank Rachael enough for her amazing work.
We've worked with Rachael for several events over the past five years and it's been a pleasure to work with her every time. She did all the photography involved with our wedding all the way from the proposal to the actual wedding event; we are so pleased with our photos. Rachael easily becomes like an old friend and we felt so comfortable during every session. She was extremely flexible working with our times and locations, and she is very attentive to what you want in your photos. We highly recommend Rachael Hall Photography!
Rachael was wonderful and the pictures are gorgeous! We had a small wedding and wanted to keep things feeling fun and relaxed. Rachael was low key and her prices were great! She quickly got us through the posed photos with family and then got so many great candid shots of everyone enjoying the ceremony. She also offered a free engagement photo session and made sure to get some great romantic photos of us alone on the day of the ceremony. We were so happy with our experience and our photos!!
Rachael is hands-down the best vendor among all our wedding vendors. She is really professional and responsible, and you can rely on her. I picked her as my photographer from Google search of my venue, and her pictures are just full of life and fun. I understand there are some needs for the formal wedding portraits, but I just really enjoyed the pictures she took that capture the great moments of us and our wedding guests. I highly recommend Rachael for brides, because I remember how clueless I was and how she helped me out on the photography part. You won't regret it.
Rachael and her assistant were wonderful! They photographed our wedding in September at Vineyards at Chapell Lodge. I found Rachael through a high school friend that was married at the same venue. They were very professional and worked hard to catch candid moments of my husband's family (they are not very big on smiling in photographs). The photos were sent to us very quickly and we are excited to be working on making an album. Thanks again, Rachael!
Rachael was a delight to work with! She was always responsive and provided great suggestions. Whenever I called her for any advice, mother of the bride questions, stress, etc., she was always immediately available. Best of all, my new son-in-love is extremely camera shy. However, he thought she was great! From the minute he met her, he said she made him feel totally comfortable and at ease. His comfort level could be seen in all of the photos, which were great!!! Strongly recommend her!
When I got engaged I immediately thought of Rachael Hall for our photographer! I had seen her work previously, including my brother's wedding 2 years prior. Her work falls nothing short of amazing, beautiful and organic!
All I have to say is, she knows how to work a camera like a BOSS, she's fun and energetic, she gets down to business, and she's super easy to talk to and great at responding! Definitely consider Rachael Hall as your photographer for your event!!
Rachael is truly amazing. From the second we met her, we knew that she was going to be so easy to work with. Her skill is insane, but the best part is that she can make even the shyest person feel comfortable in front of the camera. Our engagement, bridal, and wedding photos turned out better than we imagined. The best (and worst) part about working with Rachael is that we're left with too many amazing photos to choose from! We highly recommend her for weddings and other special events.
My event planner suggested Rachael Hall Photography and our daughter's Bat Mitzvah was very well captured by Rachael. She is energetic, flexible, creative and so eager to go to great lengths for excellent results. Her fun spirit is a bonus! We loved working with Rachael and will surely team up with her again in the future.
For our wedding, Chuck and I wanted the perfect wedding or at least a wedding that would make us proud. In order to help us remember, we asked Rachael Hall to be our photographer. She took so many great photos that it was hard to pick them out for the album. The task was overwhelming. She came to our rescue and helped us choose. What a life saver!
We are amazed at all she did during her time with us. We are so grateful to have our wedding recorded with Rachael's high quality photos for our current and future families.
My husband and I were so lucky to have Rachael photograph our wedding! She did an amazing job at capturing the emotions and spirit of our ceremony and reception (and bridal portraits as well!). Rachael was very flexible and extremely fun to work with! She is prompt with emails, phone calls, and texts. Most importantly, she takes absolutely beautiful photos! I HIGHLY recommend Rachael Hall Photography!
Rachael was the absolute best. She was very accommodating while we were trying to book our engagement shoot. Since my husband lived in Seattle, she agreed to meet with us on Easter Sunday so we could get pictures done for our website. She worked hard at getting to know my husband and me during our engagement shoot, which made us feel super comfortable on our wedding day. Rachael is warm, funny, and an overall wonderful person. Our pictures are absolutely beautiful and we could not be more thankful. Thank you Rachael!
The second I saw Rachael's website I knew she was who I wanted to document our special day. Within the first week of booking, Rachael called me so that we could get to know one another better. She is warm, funny, and dedicated to making sure you get everything you want out of your wedding day photography.
She was thorough in documenting names of family members, important guests and friends, and any special photos we wanted. On the day of my bridal shoot I felt like Rachael and I had known one another forever. She has a zen like quality about her that makes every obstacle or challenge (we had some trouble with the venue and it was like 100 degrees) seem like nothing. Plus she is INCREDIBLY talented. A person can be the sweetest person ever (which Rachael is), but at the end of the day you want someone who takes fantastic pictures. THAT IS RACHAEL. I loved every single one of my bridal pictures.
On our wedding day, I couldn't wait for Josh to meet Rachael...he was blown away with Rachael too. He does not really like to have his picture taken, and she made him feel at ease. She listened to us when we said we were too hot (again 100 degrees) or when we needed anything.
She was one (if not the) best decision we could have made. Your wedding photos will be the way you relive your wedding day for the rest of your life, and I knew they were a top priority for us. We could not be happier with how everything turned out! We could not be more grateful!
We couldn't have been luckier to have found Rachael. My husband was stationed in San Antonio, Texas at the time and I was coming to visit from California. We needed a photographer for our engagement photos ASAP. We found Rachael at the last minute and she came all the way from Austin for our shoot at Brackenridge Park. She was AMAZING and made us feel like we had known her forever. She went along with our quirky ideas. We were blown away when we got the actual photos. Her framing and editing eye are impeccable.
Rachael was such a love and an exceptional photographer, that we decided to fly her out to our California New Year's Eve wedding. A year later and our guests are still talking about our wedding photos.
My husband and I could not be more pleased with our experience with Rachael Hall. From the moment we met Rachael, we knew she would be the one to capture the moments shared at our wedding. We live in Dallas, and were getting married in San Antonio which added a layer of complexity to the wedding planning process.
Rachael worked around our busy schedules and made time for us when we were going to be in the San Antonio area for planning meetings. Working with Rachael was more than a business transaction. She places great emphasis on making sure that you are comfortable and enjoy the day.
It rained on our wedding day and many things changed the day of. Rachael had been working with our wedding planner days before to understand changes in venue, layout, lighting, etc. so she could familiarize herself and be prepared. When we look back at the photos, we feel like we are right back at our wedding! The photos of the day turned out great and captured the wedding details perfectly along with the love and passion from all our guests!
I don't think words can really describe how amazing Rachael Hall is. My husband is so uncomfortable in front of the camera, but during our engagement photo session Rachael was able to be just as goofy as him and made him forget the camera was there. And at the wedding she brought that same personality back and the pictures turned out amazing. Even when our schedules didn't match she would make time for a phone call so we could go over proofs. There is not a photo I wish we had taken before I could even think of something she was on top of it. Oh the best part is the amazing engagement and wedding photo books. For any special occasion that calls for a photographer she will always be my first choice.
