“Hiring Rachel May as our engagement and wedding photographer was one of the best decisions my husband and I could have made – not only did we get a wonderful photographer but I can also say we met a new friend. Rachel exceeded all of our expectations and then some! The moment I met Rachel, it felt like we were old friends and I could have had coffee with her for hours. I can truly say that we were blessed to have her be a part of our wedding. We can’t wait to use Rachel again for our 1 year anniversary photo shoot!” Patrick & Kristen

“We were lucky enough to have Rachel May as our engagement and wedding photographer for our nuptials this October. She went above and beyond my expectations of what a wedding photographer could be. I initially chose Rachel to be our photographer because I knew that I would feel comfortable having her at such an important and intimate event as our wedding. She is very friendly, approachable and light hearted- I just adore her. The engagement photo shoot that she offered helped us to feel even more comfortable in front of the camera, and the casual shots that we have from that are priceless, too. We are over the moon with our wedding pictures. Rachel caught every special moment of the night, and we have so many photos that I know will be iconic for our family and generations to come. Another thing that I love about Rachel May is her attention to detail in all her correspondence. Her welcome package and all the packaging of the finished project made us feel special. I can only give Rachel my highest recommendation. You won’t be disappointed, she is worth every penny! We thank you, Rachel for all your heart and hard work that you put into our wedding!!!” Thomas & Erin

“My husband and I are so thankful and fortunate that Rachel May was able to be a part of our wedding. She also did our engagement pictures! Photography is such an important aspect of a wedding and we are so overwhelmingly happy with our pictures. We have gorgeous pictures to remember our special day with. Not only is Rachel May a talented photographer, but she has a heart of gold! It was so nice having her bright, happy personality around on our big day. I feel like she is a part of our family. I could not recommend Rachel May enough!” Beau & Jessica
