Rachel Blackwell Photography

I'm not a traditional photographer (although I can recommend some great ones!) I heard it said that your wedding day should not be a photoshoot with a wedding slotted in somewhere - and I hold by that principle. I won't interrupt your guests and ask them to smile for me and I don't have a "shot list" that I rigidly stick to so that every wedding I shoot looks the same.

Your wedding is about you and the photographs I take will tell the story of your day, and be entirely unique. Formal photographs have their place and I think it's important to capture them - which I will gladly do. The formal group shots are an important family record, which document the people that you handpicked to share your day with.

What I think really sets me apart from others is that I can capture the spirit of your day discreetly. It's the small things. A smile. A glance. The laughter (and tears!) The love and the tight holding of hands. Those moments are equally memorable.
