Rachel and Garren with R&G Photography are simply amazing. I really can't say enough wonderful things about their work, dedicated service and quality of work they did for our August, 2015 wedding. My husband and I hired R&G for our engagement pictures and wedding photos and had... Read More such a great time working with them for the entire process. Rachel is so kind and has wonderful ideas. They were efficient and organized and made sure to capture every moment of our big day! We received our photos back in just a few short weeks and I am obsessed with every single picture. I was very diligent when selecting the photographer for our wedding and would choose R&G Photography a million times over!

Beautiful pictures and albums

I know Garren and Rachel personally. They are great people: very kind, accommodating, down-to-earth, and funny. Overall, I thought they did a great job on my wedding photos. Most of the pictures were beautiful, focused, brightly colored, and creative. I received all the pictures... Read More they shot and the rights to the pictures on a CD so that I could print future copies. I also received a beautiful wedding album with the photos printed directly onto thick, cardboard pages. This is one of my favorite mementos from the day. Their prices are very cheap compared to most wedding photographers. Many photographers we looked at started around $5,000. We went with one of their most expensive packages, customized a bit, and spent $2500. My only complaint is that we did two special location shoots the day of the wedding, and the pictures from one entire location were ruined due to overexposure. We were never able to even see those shots because Rachel said they didn't turn out. Those were the pictures we were most excited about because the location was representative of my town. So, that was a real disappointment. We would have loved to have been given the shots even if they were too bright, etc.

Professional and Great to work with

I got married in May 2011. I chose to use R&G photography to do our wedding photos, and it was the absolute best decision I made for my wedding. Rachel and her husband Garren are such wonderful people. They took the time to make sure that we were getting all the photos that we... Read More desired during preparation all the way through the reception. They captured moments of my day that I never would have even thought about getting that I now cherish. So many things about your wedding day are never remembered, but thanks to R&G my husband and I can remember for a lifetime. Plus the quality of their photos are incredible. I have received so many compliments about how beautiful my wedding photos are. I truly have no complaints about my experience using R&G photography. The owners are amazing people who have such a talent for this business. If you are looking for quality photography from a personable and kind photographer, this is the place to use!!!!
