The WEDDING Experience

After photographing over 100 weddings, one of the things I hear over and over again is just how quickly the day passes by. One minute you are getting your makeup done and the next you are running past your guests at your sparkler exit. The day truly feels like it happens in the blink of an eye. 

I want to help you capture those moments on your wedding day while you are enjoying them. I want you to take the time to hang out with your bridesmaids and sip mimosas or take some time for private vows before your ceremony. I want your day to feel authentic and I want you to know that I'll be there, getting all of those candid moments documented for you to enjoy later. 

A documentary approach
to capturing your wedding day

Most clients hire me for my true to life editing and my documentary, candid style of photography. If that is the style you want for your wedding day, let's connect! 

Fill out my contact form and tell me about your wedding. I'll check to see if I am available for your wedding day and if I am, we'll set up a phone call to get to know each other. As your wedding photographer, I'll be with you majority of the day, so it's important to make sure we connect before your wedding day. 

1. Say Hello

2. Engagement Session

After we get you officially booked, we'll plan your engagement session.  I'll help you find the perfect date based on the season you envision. We'll chat about locations and the vibe you are going for. Do you imagine running through a field of flowers? Are you picturing yourselves on a row boat on a beautiful pond? Do you see yourself dressed up and posing on a rooftop in the city? Whatever you have in mind, we'll make it happen! I'll give you ideas for outfits and color schemes if you need help with that as well. 


All of my wedding day collections include timeline support. This means I will ask you some questions about your wedding day once you get into planning mode like are you having a first look or do you have a set time for dinner. I will take all of the information you have about your day and create a timeline that considers the best lighting and timing for photos. This timeline is flexible and can be changed throughout your engagement. We'll collaborate with your wedding planner, but this gives you a starting point for how you'll use your hours of photography coverage. 

4. WEdding day!

Your wedding day is finally here! You can expect me to be there a few minutes before our set starting time to scout your venue. I'll look for the best light and photo locations outdoors, as well as see what the space inside looks like. I'll say hello to both you and your spouse to be and then I'll get started on capturing your wedding day! I'll be there for eight hours or more, depending on the collection you choose. We'll laugh, you'll probably cry during your vows, everyone will dance, and the best part of all- you'll be married! 

5. your photographs

One of the things that my couples rave about are sneak peeks. All of my collections include at least 50 sneak peek images. You'll get these sneak peeks within 48 hours (often sooner!) I want you to share these with your family and friends and relive the moments that brought you so much joy. These sneak peeks will keep you thinking about your wedding day until your full gallery is delivered in 6-8 weeks. I'll be hand editing every single photo that you receive so you have top notch images of your wedding day. Gallery delivery day may just be better than your wedding day- well almost!

Pricing Details

let's chat


DEstination Weddings


As you can see, I LOVE to travel- whether that's to a US based location or a destination outside of the country. For destination weddings (more than 5 hours from Greensboro, NC), I will create a custom quote for you based on where your destination is and what you want covered on your wedding day. 

I love how intimate elopements are and how the day is truly focused on you as a couple. If you are eloping, I can create a custom package for you based on your destination & date. Whether you are eloping on top of a mountain or on a glacier in Alaska, let's plan your special day! 

"Rachael took our wedding pictures and they are absolutely stunning. She captured our day so perfectly. Everything so bright and colorful and authentic. I've shared them with friends and family and everyone is amazed by how wonderful they are. She was punctual, an excellent communicator, and knew how to capture all of the best little moments from our day. I whole heartedly recommend Rachael!"

"Rachael has the best eye and knows her way around light! We had the absolute best experience working with her. She made us look great and and feel comfortable and captured all of the sweet, loving, fun, and silly moments of the day as well as the most gorgeous detail shots. She got us over 50 sneak peeks in 24 hours and they were impeccable! She is super easy to work with and so sweet. If you're considering booking Rachael, don't hesitate! I can't say enough amazing things about her!" 

"Rachael was amazing!! From engagement till the big day! My wedding day flew by, but Rachael captured all of our special moments and it was so nice looking through our albums with my husband. Very responsive, very sweet, and will provide exactly what you’re looking for on such a special day! We’ll now have these photos to remember such an important day and it’s all thanks to Rachael Mitchell Photography!"
