Full Description
Relaxed, natural & candid wedding photography. I’ll work with you to capture the all the atmosphere and emotion of your wedding in a way that’s fun, stress-free and reflects your style and personalities. I’ll be unobtrusive and discreet and I’ll capture your day from the inside out, making sure that I get the candid, creative and beautiful shots that you’ll love. My focus will be on taking natural, spontaneous photos - no awkward poses or bossing your guests around ! I’ll document the blink-and-they’re-gone interactions, emotions and details that will tell the story of your wedding day as it unfolds, as well as making time for those all important bride and groom shots. My aim is to capture the tears, laughter, dodgy but enthusiastic dancing, and the people you love most in the world all in the same place, having a ball, and when all the excitement is over I want you to look through your photos and feel like you’re reliving the day.

The results are simply incredibly gorgeous
Rachel did several shoots with us around our wedding: a pre & post shoot as well as taking hundreds of photos on our big day. We love all of them, she’s captured so many brilliant moments both of us and our guests. Rachel is really nice to work with. Though we’re both camera shy, she was able to make us feel at ease every time. She helped keep us both looking natural and smiling even when it was a dreich Scottish day, or too early and bitterly cold. Come rain or shine, she was game: for our pre-shoot, it was pouring down, it felt like the wettest day of the year. Rachel asked us whether we wanted to reschedule but we decided to brave the elements. We had tons of fun and the photos are stunning. On the big day itself she worked alongside her friend Anna (Anna Moffat photography) to capture all the moments that we really wanted to see from our wedding. Sometimes it’s just not possible for a photographer to be in 2 places at once so this was done at our request. She was very efficient, we barely noticed her as she captured all the “unplanned” parts of the wedding and we have fantastic candid shots as a result. She kept her cool during our group photos, our guests had managed to get quite tipsy, it was a bit of a herding cats situation. Rachel was quick to reply to emails and very helpful, especially with the million questions we had before, during and after the wedding. Rachel also worked really well with our videographer (whom she had never worked with before) and they were even able to bounce ideas off each other. The results are simply incredibly gorgeous, natural photos with fantastic lighting. The toughest part for us remains: choosing which of these stunning photos to include in our wedding album. Rachel’s photography from all the parts of our wedding is simply stunning, for that we can not thank her enough!

Absolutely delighted with our photographs.
Absolutely delighted with our photographs. Rachel is extremely warm and friendly and made us feel at ease. We made a last minute decision to have a photographer at our small registry office wedding and we're so happy we picked Rachel! There was no fuss, she knew exactly where to get the best photographs and the whole process was quick and easy. Thank you so much for helping us on our big day!

Thanks Rachel. We absolutely love our pictures.
We found Rachel at a small wedding fair and booked her about 2 years before we actually got married. We were so glad we did. The whole experience from start to finish was great. Rachel was friendly and professional through the whole experience. We explained what we wanted and she delivered above and beyond our expectations. On the day we had an amazing stroke of luck which meant that we got Edinburgh Castle to ourselves for the day (thank you Storm Hector) and Rachel made the most of it. We got photographs we could never have imagined getting. Rachel was so flexible and reasonably priced. Worth every single penny and more for 2 people who hadn’t thought they needed an official photographer. Thanks Rachel. We absolutely love our pictures. You captured what a wonderful and happy day it was and made the most of the opportunity Hector gave us.
