Rachel is the best! From first meeting her she was so down to earth and helped me so much when I had no idea what I wanted for my pictures! She was so responsive and was always able to talk whenever I needed her. Her pictures are absolutely stunning and she captured my wedding perfectly. 100% recommend her, you will not be disappointed!!

Rachel is simply the best and her photos are incredible. She and her team were excellent to work with and captured all the best moments of our wedding. I also enjoyed being around them and felt very comfortable on the day of the wedding. Rachel did an engagement session and the wedding day and was very flexible. When I asked to include our dogs and two locations for the engagement shoot, she was all for it. Also on the wedding, my granny couldn’t make it to the wedding last minute so we adjusted our schedule and off we went to the nursing home on the way to the wedding venue. My granny has since passed away but I will always have these special photos where she could be a part of my wedding. I couldn’t recommend Rachel more! She is wonderful, very professional and the end product is superb!

SIMPLY AMAZING! She made my spur of the moment, backyard, COVID wedding all the more special. She made such an effort to take the most genuine photos in so many different areas and also was sure to get photos of ALL family members. I received my edited photos so quickly, and could not be happier. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Working with Rachel and the Pearlman Photography team was an honor and pleasure! She has truly perfected the art of photography. We have never hired a professional photographer before my husband and I were a little nervous for the first shoot. Rachel made us feel so comfortable and there was never a moment awkwardness during our shooting sessions. My husband and I were lucky enough to have Rachel and her team shoot our engagement, mini-mony and our 2021 wedding celebration. We are looking forward to having Rachel Pealrman Photography shoot our 2021 Christmas photos along with capturing other special moments in our lives as our family grows. We highly recommend Pearlman Photography for any of your photography needs!

We absolutely loved having Rachel shoot our day – she is truly an amazing photographer. Beyond the obvious skill which you can see in her work, she has an amazing manner with which she operates and makes her couples feel truly special on their big day. She made everything easy, both leading up to and during our wedding, and it felt like such a luxury to know we did not have to worry in any way about the photography. We highly recommend her to any and every couple who is looking to get married or photograph any other special moments. Hiring Rachel was the best decision we made, and we cannot thank her enough!

Rachel is a dream to work with! In searching for a wedding photographer, we were constantly met with what felt like standard packages and less than stellar communication. Rachel was a breath of fresh air - absolutely hilarious, with a stunning vision and aesthetic and just a fantastic person and friend who can't imagine NOT having photograph every future milestone in our life. My husband and I thought we hated taking pictures, but Rachel made us feel so at ease and relaxed with her down to earth persona. She also had a fantastic vibe with our videographer which I think made a huge difference on the wedding day (despite neither of them ever shooting at our venue, or working together, they collaborated on photos/video and one of our favorite memories from our wedding was riding out to the long driveway of our venue drinking with them and taking photos - truly!). I think overall the best thing Rachel does is truly get to know the couples she works with and build that relationship that puts people at ease. She cares so much about what she does and the couples she works with and you can see that from the moment you book with her all the way through putting your wedding photo album together.

Rachel is an artist! From my initial phone call with her, we clicked right off the bat and I knew she was the one. She was incredibly creative when it came to our engagement session in Joshua Tree National Park. She helped me with things outside of just the photos including timeline for my wedding and help with finding other vendors such as my hair vendor. Now let’s talk about the photos—oh my gosh the photos are absolutely stunning! I couldn't be happier with them and working with her!! I truly feel like a gained a friend through the whole process. Hire her!!!

I had the privilege of meeting Rachel as a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding and from that experience knew that I wanted her to be my photographer at my wedding. We couldn’t have been happier with our experience working with Rachel for both our engagement shoot & our wedding. Rachel made the experience feel relaxed and low stress. Even more, we were thrilled with how our wedding photos came out. We would recommend Rachel to anyone looking for a talented wedding photographer!
Hannah D. on 29 Oct 2022
There is nobody better than Rachel!! She is an expert at what she does and from the first phone call I knew she was the perfect person to photograph our wedding day. The photos from the day are stunning and we will cherish them forever. We cant wait to have Rachel shoot all of life’s big moments for us ❤️❤️❤️

I'm obsessed with Rachel. Her eye for light and setting make every sweet moment she captured cinematic. Not only is she artistically talented, though, her calm and friendly demeanor made my husband and I feel like we had been friends with her for years. We will cherish these photos for the rest of our lives. Hiring her was the best decision of our wedding planning hands down.
