The Big Day

"Because we believe that photography is more than just the end result, we offer our clients the complete Wedding Experience."

"Laura and Rachel went above and beyond for our wedding day!"

Austin & paige

Laura and Rachel went above and beyond for our wedding day! It was so perfect and they made it exactly how I imagined. We did an elopement wedding in Charleston, South Carolina. They took us all over town and captured all of our moments. The vision they have and how they took action to get the perfect shot was incredible! To top it all off, they had our photos back to us so fast! I am so grateful for the job they did.

2021

"They went above and beyond to get to our destination wedding in Exuma, Bahamas!"

drew & samantha

Laura & Rachel are the best!! They’re absolutely amazing, talented and the sweetest team. We had a wonderful experience from the start of our interactions to our engagement photoshoot to our wedding day. They thought of everything and gave us direction every step of the way. They’re very detail focused and captured all of our greatest moments perfectly. Laura & Rachel are true professionals and worked with us to make sure we got the photos we were hoping for and had an awesome time doing it. They went above and beyond to get to our destination wedding in Exuma and spent extra time with us on our wedding day. We adore the photos and Laura & Rachel. We can’t wait to work with them again!

2021

"They were a true blessing to work with, and I am so glad that our wedding planner recommended them to us!"

William
& Anna

Laura and Rachel were an absolute joy to work with! They made us feel so comfortable and special on our wedding day. They went above and beyond to scope out the wedding ceremony & reception layout prior to the event which was already very short notice for them. They were a true blessing to work with, and I am so glad that our wedding planner recommended them to us. The best mother/daughter duo! My husband and I would highly recommend Laura and Rachel to anyone looking for a photographer!

2021

"If you are trying to decide between photographers, pick them!!!"

Luc & Laura

Laura and Rachel are AMAZING! If you are trying to decide between photographers, pick them!!! My husband and I live in Indiana, wedding was on Kiawah Island, SC, and they made the whole process so easy for us! Not only do they make a very structured timeline for your wedding day, but they make sure everything falls into place as planned on the big day! We did not have a wedding coordinator, but Laura and Rachel literally could and should become coordinators because that’s what you get with them—photographers and day of coordinators! I did not have any stress on my wedding day all thanks to them! They are so professional but also the perfect amount of fun. I am straight up awkward in front of the camera haha and I felt more comfortable posing for photos with them than I ever have before! You get what you pay for, and they are worth every penny! My husband and I had a blast with them all day long and will cherish our stunning photos forever!

"We aren't used to being in front of a camera and they literally walked us through everything to make us (somehow) look like naturals! 5 stars aren't enough!"

Matthew & Briana

We hired Laura and Rachel to be our wedding photographers and we were just blown away! Their wedding package included an engagement session as well, so we had the pleasure of working with them twice. One of my favorite distinctions with Laura and Rachel is that they come as a duo, no questions asked. My husband and I aren't used to being in front of a camera and they literally walked us through everything to make us (somehow) look like naturals! They are so professional and engaging, and were almost like my second wedding planners! They helped me craft the day-of timeline around the photos to make sure they had time to get everything we wanted in for the day. Having them with us on the wedding day helped it go so smoothly, and the pictures are more than we could have ever asked for! 5 stars aren't enough!

2021

"I knew from the first video chat they would be a perfect fit!"

Nicolas & Christina

Aside from the stunning photos, the thing that stood out the most to me was the professionalism and strong communication through the whole wedding planning process. They were prompt and thorough with their emails and phone calls. This mother-daughter duo is a two for one deal plus all the other amazing add on bonuses they offer such as an engagement session, wedding day timeline, solid communication, and vendor referrals. They were beyond prepared for my event which helped me enjoy my wedding stress free. I am beyond happy with the photos and everything else they provided along the way. I knew from the first video chat they would be a perfect fit!

"We had cancel our wedding due to COVID, but Laura & Rachel were able to fly out and take our photos at our venue..."

Johnny
& Alison

Laura & Rachel were a pleasure to work with for both our engagement & wedding portraits. My husband & I had to cancel our wedding due to COVID, but Laura & Rachel were able to fly out (THANK YOU) and take our photos at our venue in our wedding attire. The photos came out AMAZING & so happy we chose to still capture 'our day' as husband & wife. They were both so helpful throughout the process & an overall joy to work with! 

2020

"All I can say is that I am IN LOVE. Thank you so much Laura and Rachel. You two are rockstars!"

treanor & Matney

We used Laura and Rachel for our wedding photographers. From the minute we met them we knew they were the ones for the job. They have been so kind and helpful throughout this entire wedding process. On wedding day they arrived early to set up the detail photos and knockout some bridal portraits, which helped us greatly on the timeline. Their photos were very creative and they styled our wedding party in a very unique and desirable way. All I can say is that I am IN LOVE. Thank you so much Laura and Rachel. You two are rockstars!

"These pictures turned out better than I could have ever imagined honestly and we will treasure them forever!"

omar & rawan

I cannot put into words how amazing Laura and Rachel are!!!!! From the moment we sat down with them to chat about our wedding they were so kind, professional, answered all of my annoying questions and from that moment on they have never let us down and they have taken some AMAZING PICTURES OF US!! They were so understanding and professional and SO EASY to work with especially when it came to scheduling our engagement session in the midst of COVID shut downs and then when it came time to reschedule our wedding. They are super responsive and always get back to us in a timely manner. The day of our postponed wedding we did a shoot with them in the morning to remember the day and they had all the pictures to us that SAME day to show our friends and family at our backyard wedding. My husband and I went through almost a dozen photographers before finding Laura and Rachel and I am so thankful that we did because these pictures turned out better than I could have ever imagined honestly and we will treasure them forever!!!! HIRE LAURA AND RACHEL, YOU WILL LOVE YOUR DECISION I PROMISE!!!!

My husband and I used Laura and Rachel Photography in Charleston, SC for our wedding during all this crazy COVID-19 stuff and they were EXCEPTIONAL! They made us feel comfortable the entire time. Our photos turned out so incredibly well too! They also did our engagement shoot and did an incredible job! My husband and I had so much fun!! We cannot wait to do it all again!

"They go out of their way to make sure you feel comfortable and confident and treat you like family"

Jason & Michelle

Laura and Rachel Photography are not only amazing photographers that will go out of their way to make sure you feel comfortable and confident during your photo shoot but they also treat you like family. My husband and I decided to elope while on vacation in Charleston and after finding Laura and Rachel they were a vital part in making this day happen and be magical. Since I wasn’t from Charleston they went out of their way to help me find the perfect venue for our ceremony and photo session. Also they had a list of officiants so I had no trouble finding someone last minute. Honestly I couldn’t have done it without these ladies. On our wedding day they were promptly on time and ready to shoot since we were on a tight timeframe and they wasted no time making sure we had ample time shooting in each location. My husband and I had never had a photo shoot before and we were both worried the photos might show our apprehension and nerves but once the cameras came out they both had us laughing and gave excellent directions on how to get great natural photos. Once the day was over it was no less than a week before we had our photos back and I can’t believe how amazing they look. The photo editing was perfection and I am so happy that I can look back on our last minute decision to elope with happy memories and beautiful photos to show our family and friends.

"There's absolutely no one else we would trust to capture such significant moments in our lives..."

Mitchel & Lauyn

Laura and Rachel are two of the most kind, dedicated, and talented people I've ever met. We've developed an incredible friendship and my husband and I couldn't be more thankful for them. Every shoot we have had with Laura and Rachel has been incredibly enjoyable and FUN! My husband does not normally enjoy having his pictures taken, but he jumps at every opportunity to be in front of Laura and Rachel's cameras, simply because they make the experience so wonderful and easy-going.

As if the experience itself isn't reason enough to pick them, their images are unbeatable! Seeing how detail-oriented they are in person makes complete sense when you have the images in hand. They take every bit of lighting, people, and location in to consideration.

My husband and I truly cherish every photograph they have taken for us. They captured every ounce of emotion, laughter, tears, smiles. We can't express in words how much it means to have these memories so beautifully preserved for the rest of our lives.

There's absolutely no one else we would trust to capture such significant moments in our life together. Laura and Rachel, thank you for being wonderful people, photographers, and friends. We love you!

"They are warm, caring, kind-hearted and TALENTED people who were able to perfectly capture the most important day of our lives"

robert & alexandra

Laura & Rachel photographed our wedding and we could not have made a better decision in choosing them. They are warm, caring, kind-hearted and TALENTED people who were able to both perfectly capture the most important day of our lives to date but also keep us grounded and calm throughout the entire process. They make you feel like family in the most genuine way. We've continued to use them after our wedding for our annual holiday card (we've already got them on the books for later this year!) and we hope they continue coming out to California so we can continue to both catch up and get amazing photographs that we'll treasure forever.

"They are caring, helpful and attentive from introduction months ahead of the wedding all the way through post-wedding photos and questions."

Jake & mariel

I would give 10 stars if I could!. Laura and Rachel are an absolute JOY to work with. They are caring, helpful and attentive from introduction months ahead of the wedding all the way through post-wedding photos and questions. It was so touching that they wanted to get to know us as a couple ahead of the wedding and understand our style and energy, which is evident in the photos. Likewise, their present and calm energy on the wedding day was a much appreciated asset! They are incredibly talented and we are beyond thrilled with our wedding day photos.

2018

"Working with Laura and Rachel was a true joy! They are incredibly genuine, passionate and amazing at what they do."

chris & michelle

 Working with Laura and Rachel was a true joy! They are incredibly genuine, passionate and amazing at what they do! Photographers play an intimate role in your big day, they are around you at the most precious/monumental moments and Laura and Rachel are the perfect photographers to help make your wedding day extra magical. They make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, capture your love, make you feel valued and celebrate the excitement of your special day with you as if they were your longtime friends. Our engagement photos and wedding photos have received so many compliments by family and friends!

2018

"My husband and I are completely obsessed with Laura and Rachel."

alex & harmony

My husband and I are completely obsessed with Laura and Rachel. I was so nervous about picking the best photographers for our engagement and wedding and did a ton of research beforehand. When we found Laura and Rachel, their ability to capture scenery, sunsets and light is what drew us in. After our initial call with them, we knew they were the ones! From our engagement photos 8+ months prior to our wedding, to the wedding day itself, they made us feel so calm and comfortable the entire time. Taking photos can be awkward and not one bit of working with them was awkward at all! They are also just so kind, so sweet and so professional, and you can tell they genuinely care about all their clients. Not to mention our photos turned out INSANE. We still have guests/friends/family raving about our photographers and how "dreamy" our photos turned out! We can't wait to have another excuse to work with them!

"On our wedding day, they were our source of calm amongst the chaos!... Throughout the entire process, Laura and Rachel made us feel more like life-long friends instead of clients!

john & teresa

We cannot recommend Laura and Rachel enough! In our opinion, booking a wedding photographer can be one of the most difficult and important parts of planning a wedding. From our initial meeting with Laura and Rachel, they immediately put us at ease with their calm demeanor! Regarding our engagement photos, it was our first time having professional photos taken and they made us feel comfortable, gave us great direction, and made the day effortless! In the months leading up to our wedding day, we worked together on the day-of timeline, and they made certain everything was perfect! On our wedding day, they were our source of calm amongst the chaos! They went above and beyond throughout the entire day to make sure we were happy, fed (they even served us our hors d’oeuvres !), and that they got all the shots we had wanted to capture! Their style is what wedding dreams are made of! Their photos are overflowing with beautiful natural light, relaxed and not forced poses, and most importantly they so beautifully capture the love between the couple!

"They were outstanding in every sense of the word. I cannot over emphasize what a joy and privilege it was to have worked with both Laura and Rachel."

mike & Janice

They were outstanding in every sense of the word. I cannot over emphasize what a joy and privilege it was to have worked with both Laura and Rachel. What captured us first was not just the professional and beautiful gallery of pictures displayed on their website, but Laura and Rachel’s personalities as well. We were not treated as mere clients, but made to feel like a part of their family. After spending about an hour with them, Janice and I were convinced that they were the ones we wanted to use as photographers to capture our special day. We had so many laughs during the photo session that the time flew by and we didn’t want the session to end! They know how to capture the love between two individuals as they did with Janice and me. That is the mark of a superior photographer. Thanks for making our special day that much more special by capturing it in photos!

"The photos and the experience of working with them was amazing! From the very beginning, they made this camera-shy couple feel at ease."

alex & laura

We feel so lucky to have had Laura and Rachel as our wedding photographers, the photos and the experience of working with them was amazing!!! From the very beginning (our engagement shoot) they made this camera-shy couple feel at ease. They went above and beyond in providing us a super helpful schedule for the big day, and were very kind throughout to all of our family and friends. Their work speaks for itself and they definitely put their hearts into every shot. Highly recommend!

2017

"For us living miles away in Seattle... it was love at first Skype with this mother-daughter photography team."

matthew & ashley

Where do I even begin with Laura and Rachel?! I think for us living miles away in Seattle looking for an engagement photo session, it was love at first Skype with this mother-daughter photog team. The love and passion they have for their work is simply infectious (even through cyberspace) and this is so crucial when you're photographing an engaged couple who feels shy in front of the camera! Laura and Rachel are highly responsive and organized and they provided great direction for both our wedding and engagement photos and most importantly, they do AMAZING work. Such a great experience working with them, highly, highly recommend.

2016

"I could go on forever, but my bottom line message to couples looking their wedding photographer is LOOK NO FURTHER."

laurence & meagan

Starting this review was really difficult for me because I wanted to make sure I accurately emphasized how LUCKY we felt to have found Laura and Rachel. We quickly set up a Skype meeting and as soon as we hung up, I turned to my husband and said "Okay, I'm done searching; Laura and Rachel are adorable and perfect", and my opinion has only grown greater! They go far above and beyond their photographer 'duties'! When we finally met for our engagement photos, it felt like we had already known each other for far longer than a few months! The day of the wedding, they were AMAZING! They carried cough drops and waters for my sick husband and myself, helped make sure we ate, had drinks for our toast, my dress was cleaned, and perfectly managed my unique family dynamics. The list of things they did to help make the day easier is endless. I could go on forever, but my bottom line message to couples looking their wedding photographer is LOOK NO FURTHER.

2017

"The very best decision I made in all this was asking Laura and Rachel to be a part of our long-awaited vow renewal"

jose & tiffany

I've been speechless since the morning you sent me the very first image... and I still have a hard time finding the right words. The very best decision I made in all this was asking you and Rachel to be a part of our long-awaited vow renewal. This was SO important to me and my biggest fear was that I wouldn't be able to find someone to bridge the gap between my romantic fantasies and reality.... oh my goodness gracious, you delivered! Your professionalism, your understanding of what I wanted, your willingness to go (way, way) above and beyond to serve us, and most of all your FRIENDSHIP is something that I will treasure in my soul forever and always.

" Picking a photographer is such a big task of wedding planning and from the moment we met them we knew that working with them would work with such ease."

morgan & Megan

The pictures were perfect! From the bottom of our hearts we cannot thank them enough for everything. Between giving me a timeline to work with, answering all my questions, our engagement picture shoot and how much ease they navigated every picture on the day of our wedding, we were so lucky to find them! Picking a photographer is such a big task of wedding planning and from the moment we met them we knew that working with them would work with such ease. The day goes by so quick and I am so happy that we had Laura and Rachel to capture every moment for us. They also have such a quick turn around in getting the pictures to you which is always great since you cannot wait to see them! 

2016

“ I really felt like they have become friends and went above and beyond to ensure that we had a great experience... they are simply the best.”

shawn & jenn

Laura and Rachel were the best wedding photographers we could have asked for. From day one they were responsive, professional and helpful. They were helpful in the whole wedding panning process. From engagement photos to the big day, they made the experience completely comfortable and really helped us feel less awkward in front of the camera. I really felt like they have become friends and went above and beyond to ensure that we had a great experience - and AMAZING photos to look back on. They are simply the best.
