“Rebecca is truly amazing. We hired her because of her knack for capturing genuine, real life moments, as opposed to contrived poses that can sometimes feel forced, at least in our experiences as attendees at other weddings. Sometimes you just don't want to fake it! We felt we could be our natural selves, and interact with our guests genuinely. She perfectly captured the energy, the stories, and the emotions of the best day of our lives. She not only took beautiful photos, she also was heavily invested in our well-being. Months before our wedding, she would check in with us and make sure we were doing okay. Sometimes she would patiently listen to us vent about the all the stresses that come with planning a wedding. Come the day-of, she was looking out when guests turned to us for logistical questions. If we needed support, she would rally our bridal party/groomsmen and coordinate with our planner and make sure we were taken care of. She really was so much more than a photographer. Please, do yourself a favor and hire this wonderful human, who also happens to take great pictures!”

“How do I even put this? Rebecca was simply amazing. She was professional, responsive, prompt, timely, so sweet, so inviting, and made us feel really comfortable. Her photography captures all of the feelings we were having on our wedding day. I could not recommend her more.”

“We were shocked by the amazing level of beauty and power that we found in our photos. When others look at our wedding photos, they literally gasp and are blown away. Some quotes from our friends include: “Omg that is the most beautiful picture I have ever seen,” “How is that picture even possible,” “Your photos are insane,” and so on. Our family have voiced how touched they feel reliving the happiness of the special day, and have grabbed up any photos we have printed. The photographs are priceless, and as such, Rebecca and Oriana are worth every penny, and so much more. ”

 "Rebecca was able to capture the many aspects of our wedding day effortlessly and deftly. She came up with perfect ideas for portraits and caught those special moments between my partner and I. She was there and not there it seemed! I am impressed by how she capitalized on natural light since our venue was shadowy at times. All in all, I couldn't have asked for a better photographer!"

 "[Associate photographer] O was thorough, creative, passionate, professional and made our somewhat untraditional wedding go off without a hitch. I fell in love with their style after viewing the "featured weddings" from her website and knew we needed her to document our day. From that initial inquiry email to now a few weeks after our nuptials, every interaction I've had (and continue to have!) with O has been better than the previous. I highly, HIGHLY recommend them as a photographer for your wedding.”

"These are not your ‘traditional’ photographers. They took our engagement as well as wedding day pictures, and they are nothing short of spectacular! Our pictures look like something from a magazine. Rebecca makes sure she and her associates know her clients very well beforehand — when we met up, we wanted to ensure that our vision was something that she would be excited to capture, and indeed it was. Their attention to detail is superb.  I was SO very excited to book them and they undoubtedly were one of the BEST investments we made for our big day!!"
