Rachelle was amazing!

– Kyla and Christian (Bellevue, Washington)

We hired Rachelle as our wedding photographer and it was one our best decisions! The day goes by so fast; good-quality photography is an absolute must in my opinion. In addition to taking beautiful photographs, Rachelle is so full of energy and fun to be around! Her upbeat and confident demeanor definitely helped make us at ease. Our first experience with Rachelle was when she shot our Engagement Session, which was included in our Wedding Photography Package with her. Not only did we have an absolute blast during the shoot but the pictures came out STUNNING, very artistic, and professional. These are pictures we will treasure for years to come! We ended up purchasing an Engagement Photo Signing book for our wedding (in lieu of a traditional guest book) so guests could sign on the pages of our custom-made engagement album. It was an amazing way to both get a beautiful, high-quality album of our engagement session and a unique wedding guest book all-in-one that will not be just stored away in a box like a traditional guest book.

After our experience with Rachelle during our engagement session, we knew that we had chosen our wedding photographer wisely and were so excited for her to shoot our upcoming wedding. On our wedding day, Rachelle was there from morning to night documenting the entire day. Although we were being photographed all day, we never felt overwhelmed or on the spot as she was able to just blend in and get fabulous (and sometimes hilarious!) candid pictures of our guests and us as well as special posed pictures of us and our family. Just a few days after our wedding, she released some gorgeous “sneak peaks” and we got all of our pictures back in less than a month! She captured the whole day beautifully, we absolutely adore our wedding pictures and have gotten so many great compliments on them! On top of it all, compared to other wedding photographers (which we interviewed many before hiring Rachelle), Rachelle was by far one of the most reasonably priced and went above and beyond to work to create a package that was within our budget. Now that we are expecting a new addition to our family in a few months, we of course already have plans set up for her to shoot both maternity and newborn photos! We feel so lucky to have found Rachelle as our photographer and highly recommend her.

From Maui to Seattle, Rachelle was there!

-Christy and Marty (Tacoma, Washington)

From the moment I met Rachelle, we hit it off. I initially met her at one of the bridal shows and we had a great conversation. She was so easy to talk too. We were getting married in Maui and she said that she photographed destination weddings. I wanted my fiancé to meet her so I had him go with me to the next bridal show. We made our decision at that point to have her photograph our wedding and reception. She flew over to Maui and took so many beautiful pictures of our wedding and dinner afterwards. I forget about how distinctive the colors were over there until I look at our pictures. The sunset pictures she took were exquisite. The colors from the wedding itself were unbelievable. The colors in the pictures are more vivid than our memories. What a beautiful and perfect day and Rachelle was able to capture that. Being a typical wedding, the day is just a complete whirlwind, and trying to remember everything is nearly impossible. Rachelle’s pictures captured the moment so completely that we were beside ourselves with how beautiful the entire event was. She took the cutest pictures of my two-and-a-half year old niece who was all over the place during the wedding. She did not miss a shot. She was very patient with the kids in the wedding. They really responded well to her. Rachelle brought up the idea of doing a “Trash Your Dress” session. That was so much fun!! We had such a great time. The pictures she took were phenomenal. Her energy and creativity had us laughing at times, which led to a very fun shoot. Rachelle also did a family shoot for my parents’ wedding anniversary while we were over there. The pictures that she took were very memorable. A couple of months after the wedding, we had our reception in the Seattle area. Rachelle took those pictures, too. She does so well capturing the moment that we will never forget our special time. We so enjoyed having Rachelle as our photographer that she feels like part of the family. Overall, Rachelle adds to the event she is photographing… She has the type of personality that gets along well with everybody. She caters to the couple’s needs and wants, and makes the day perfect. We would definitely recommend Rachelle as a photographer for any event or memory. Thank you, Rachelle!!!!

Relive your entire wedding

-Kristy and Doug (Renton, Washington)

I cannot say enough about Rachelle. She is an amazing photographer, has a beautiful eye, and is THE NICEST person. She shot our wedding this past June, and I cannot even tell you, that girl works her tail off! She loves weddings, she loves people, and she will infuse your day with her spirit and enthusiasm. She will take hundreds and hundreds of amazing pictures. We can almost relive the whole wedding in our pictures; it is as if she knew just which ones to take. She is creative as well as is a great technical photographer, but more than anything else, I just think she understands people, and knows how to take the best pictures for whomever she is shooting. The only bad thing about Rachelle is that you will want to hang out with her at your wedding, and the girl will not stop working! If you want a great photographer, that will put you at ease and let you know that she’s got it all handled, hire Rachelle, you will not regret it.

Three weddings in one year!

-Elyce and Mike (Bothell, Washington)

What an amazing year for our family. We got married, our goddaughter got married, and then our son got married. Rachelle was there to capture every moment of all of three weddings! She took the time to get to know each one of us during our engagement photo shoots that helped her put together an incredible wedding day photo plan. We had weddings on an outside lawn, the next one in a hotel and the last one on top of a building – all perfectly captured by the expert behind the lens.

Rachelle went beyond all expectations. She was always on time, friendly, professional, easy to talk to, able to connect with both the wedding guests and bridal party, as well as totally put the nervous bride and groom at ease. I really hate having my picture taken but I actually bent for Rachelle since she made it so painless. She kept reminding me it was my day to shine and even though I clowned around a bit, she caught so many beautiful moments that I could not help but cry . . . they were PERFECT! Moreover, she made me look sooooo good! You could not go wrong with her as your photographer. Believe me you will get much more than you expect – in value, commitment, quality and expertise – she is amazing!

Photo FUN Booth was a big hit!

-Michelle and Monty (Seattle, Washington)

Our Engagement Photo Sessions

We were not planning to have engagement photos but after we received the photos from our engagement session, we were very happy that we had decided to have them taken by Rachelle. The engagement photo session can be a little intimidating because you do not know what to expect if you have not had professional photos taken before. However, Rachelle made it extremely comfortable for us and said to just be ourselves. We highly recommend having your engagement photos taken because it helps you to know what to expect during your actual wedding photos. Rachelle is very fun and personable to work with and got us to a comfort level where we could get out of our shells. That in turn allowed us to take photos that highlighted our personalities as a couple. Rachelle is very knowledgeable and she knows how to get you to open up to capture stunning photos. We were very impressed with the engagement album that she designed. We were excited and proud to show it to all of our friends & family. It is truly one of a kind! Our engagement photos are amazing and we are so glad that we went with Rachelle Erickson Photography!

The Wedding

After we had our engagement session with Rachelle Erickson we knew we were in great hands. Rachelle was organized and thorough as we had all the photos that we requested. Rachelle thought of every little detail that you could possibly want documented. She has the experience and expertise to know what you want and provide that great advice. We had built such a great relationship with Rachelle that we felt she had been one of our friend for years. Our wedding photos are simply astonishing. The photos were so beautiful and professional that they looked as if they came from a wedding magazine. Rachelle’s creativity is both unique and remarkable. Rachelle was there every step of the way documenting all the precocious moments. It was such a joy to look over our pictures after the wedding and to see that every special moment was documented in the photos so that we could enjoy them later. We whole-heartedly recommend Rachelle Erickson Photography as your wedding photographer.

Photo FUN Booth at our reception

Rachelle Erickson’s Photo FUN Booth is not your average Photo FUN Booth. The pictures are of professional quality and you will be proud to share them with your friends and family. Guests love and are very impressed with the Photo FUN Booth! It is a blast to take professional, fun, and silly photos with your friends. Rachelle provides all the backdrops, props, and costumes to take both unique and creative photos. We are still hearing from our friends and family about how great the Photo FUN Booth was at our wedding.

Amazing Engagement Photo Session!

-Joshua & Kirsten (Tacoma, Washington)

We first met Rachelle at the Tacoma Wedding Expo. When I saw her work, I was immediately drawn toward her! When I went to look at her albums, we started up a conversation and she was just so easy to talk too. Her photos are FLAWLESS! Rachelle had an amazing drawing to win a free engagement session so we filled out the information hoping we would win. Rachelle found us the perfect location after we had described what we would like the scenery to be.

When we finally get to the day of the engagement shoot EVERYTHING was perfect! Rachelle is SO sweet and has such good energy that we immediately felt comfortable. Rachelle made taking pictures fun because we are both not photogenic. When we met to see our pictures and they came out perfect! Rachelle made us look AMAZING! All of the pictures had a sort of awe about them. We DEFINITELY are having Rachelle as our wedding photographer and HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for a fun but professional photographer!

Rachelle is FUN!

-Tara (Seattle, Washington)

We met Rachelle through a recommendation by the event coordinator at our venue in Seattle. I had been researching photographers, getting recommendations, and driving myself crazy trying to find the right person for the job. I researched her photos and was happy with what I saw so we set up a meeting. After meeting with Rachelle, it just clicked. Not only did she “get” me and my vision for the day she is fun and easy to be around. That is what I needed. The most important thing for us on our special day besides the getting married part is the photographs. These are lifetime memories we are talking about. The experience has been great so far, the photos beautiful and artistic and we so look forward to seeing all the amazing memories through photographs Rachelle captures on our wedding day!!

Glamour & Wedding Photos

– Jordan and Joe (Snohomish, Washington)

A Glamour Day for the Bride-to-be!

From the first time I saw Rachelle’s sample glamour book at the wedding show, I knew this was something that I wanted to do! Her albums are the best quality I have ever seen! The pictures shown in her sample album were the perfect example of how every woman should get the experience of feeling to show their beauty! Never doing anything like this before, Rachelle had a ton of great ideas on how to create those special moments that you will love. During my glamour shoot with Rachelle, she made me feel like a model! She made me feel comfortable and made it one of the best experiences in my life! When I finally saw the pictures, I was absolutely blown away! I thought “that’s ME?!!” I thought I was looking at pictures of a rock star! The book she created was unbelievably phenomenal! My pics looked absolutely amazing and her little creative touches transformed the book into an absolute work of art! I looked so natural in all of the pictures!

Our Engagement Photo Session…

We met Rachelle at the wedding show. Her albums and creativity stood out over all the other photographer booths. She was so fun, warm, and inviting unlike many of the other booths. From the moment we met her at the Farm in Snohomish she made us feel comfortable and completely at ease. She brought out a childlike fun and Joe and I were able to really enjoy the experience. As a bride, I was not at my most favorable weight and was somewhat concerned with how our pictures would turn out. Not only were we completely comfortable, but our pictures melted away any fears! She has so much experience and knowledge and she made that evident during not only our session but also when she presented our pics! Our engagement pics captured all of the emotion and love that my fiancé and I share! Emotions that I did not even know could be printed in a one-dimensional print! Rachelle is just phenomenal! I am so thankful that Joe and I have had the pleasure of working with such a truly gifted photographer and an amazing woman!
