Rachel (and her husband) are by far the most kind, genuine, and talented people in BCS (and probably the whole world). Words cannot describe how blessed I was to stumble on such an amazing person to capture one of the most important day of our lives. She was everywhere at our... Read More wedding, but went unnoticed. I think that is a very special quality that most photographers don't have. She did not get in the way, did not make a scene, yet captured everything. She helped me with my wedding from day 1. She created photography timelines, we met to discuss the pictures, and she was always just a phone call away. Rachel is so much more than a great photographer. She is an amazing, God-fearing, loving woman. I am beyond blessed to have had her apart of my special day. And not to mention.... the photos turned out absolutely breathtaking!! Rachel built such a strong relationship with me, that I want her to take any other photos that I need (pregnancy, newborn, family.. etc.). She is that type of person. She leaves an impression on your heart and is just incredible.

Let me start by saying that Rachel is such a sweet, calm, FUN lady...she instantly makes you feel at ease and happy to be around her. Her personality allowed my (now) husband and me to relax and be ourselves during the three photo sessions we had with her-our engagements, my... Read More bridals, and of course our wedding day. In addition to being a great person, she's also a fabulous photographer. My friends and family cannot say enough good things about our wedding pictures, and we've already had a few ladies reach out to ask us who our photographer was so they can look into booking her as well. Rachel also helped me with planning (she actually provided a day-of timeline for me to work from, it was SO helpful), she promptly answered any and all of my questions even if they were not photography related, and she suggested other great wedding vendors for us to look into. Her wedding knowledge is profound! My best memory from working with Rachel is that I KNEW I could count on her. Without a doubt, I knew she was going to preserve our big day in beautiful pictures, and it was such a blessing to have that trust and confidence in someone who has such a big responsibility on what will be one of your most important days. I may have been worried that the food would be cold or the beer would run out, but I never doubted that our wedding pictures would be anything less than perfection.

Finding a photographer for the biggest day of my life was one of the biggest decisions I had to make.

Her and her husband made the day go by smoothly, even with a tight schedule, we still managed to get every shot that I wanted!!

I've put off writing this review for a month now because I'm having a hard time coming up with words that accurately describe how awesome Rachel and Chris are and how invaluable they were as our wedding photographers. First of all, Rachel is one of the bubbliest, most joyful... Read More people I have ever met. She exudes positivity and lights up any room she enters. She made taking pictures so enjoyable that your sessions felt more like coffee with an old friend (minus the coffee) than photography sessions. She got to know Markus and I so well that as we got closer to our wedding day she started anticipating questions and taking care of things for me without me having to ask. When Markus and I met Rachel we left feeling like we could trust her and we're blown away with how right we were. Rachel and Chris captured us so well and provided us with a amazing pictures that we will cherish forever. Rachel and Chris - thank you for treating us like family, we are so happy to have found you.

So the first question is "overall rating" and when you click 5 stars, it auto-captions "Wow, the best ever!" Truer words never spoken! Having been in the wedding business personally for nearly 17 years (still dabble from time to time), I can absolutely say that this dynamic... Read More duo, Rachel and Chris, are simply aces. They are not only highly skilled in their craft but they are truly wonderful to work with. From the start, they are engaged with YOU! They do what so many wedding vendors fail to do...they get to know you! This is CRITICAL to being able to tell your story thru their lense...and that they most certainly do! Rachel and Chris are not just our wedding photographers, they are now true friends for life. Thank you, for ALL you guys did to capture our unforgettable day in the details of the moments. We look fondly forward to the next big moments in our life being made alive in front of the camera of these talented craftsmen!

There are not enough words to explain how wonderful Rachel and Chris are. I got married in the Dallas area, and they traveled (WITH A NEWBORN) from Bryan/College Station for everything. I am absolutely in love with every single picture: from proposal, to engagements, to bridals,... Read More to the wedding day I feel like Rachel did not miss a single moment. Every "dream" picture I ever wanted I have. Rachel and Chris really take the time to get to know you as an individual AND as a couple. They are very invested in serving you and making everything leading up to your big day as perfect as it can be. They are VERY easy to work with, very go with the flow, and super good at sneaking those important pictures without having the camera in your face the entire evening. Rachel is GREAT at any wedding advice and is a wonderful shoulder to cry on when you get stressed. They are really good at doing a variety of styles, so if you're envisioning something you don't see on Rachel's blog, odds are she can do it anyway. They are seriously the best, most kind hearted, Jesus serving couple I know, and to have them involved in my wedding day was SOOO special. LOVE LOVE LOVE Imani Photography and everything they did for my husband and I. Really, they are a dream team and you would be silly to use anybody else!!!!! : )

Most mornings you will find me in yoga pants with a mom bun, my new little one on my hip, trying to drink my coffee that gets cold all too quickly. My evenings are filled with a rowdy bunch of kiddos (we have 6 to be exact!), making dinners from scratch with whatever I find in the pantry (I think I was a chef in my past life...), and hearing about the days in the life of my sweet elementary school kids. I have been married to my hubby (whom I have deemed my #beardedlover, well because of his amazing beard!) for a whole TEN years!
