The one thing I knew when I started planning our wedding and discussing budget was that the only thing non negotiable was using Rachael and Lauren to photograph the day. I met Rachael  in 2019 at a friends wedding she was capturing, I was blown away with her professionalism, talent, and fun personality.

Our wedding day was a dream, The team made it even more amazing than I could've ever imagined. Our pictures are absolutely breathtaking and some thing we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Everyone still can't believe how gorgeous they turned out. The only thing "hard" about working with Rachael's team is having to choose which pictures to display after you receive them, because they are all just that beautiful. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.

We chose Rachel for our engagement session and immediately booked her after that for our wedding! She is so fun to work with and has an eye for the prettiest details. Rachel was so easy to work with and knew exactly how to get us to act natural so she could capture genuine moments. We had such a great time working with her that we even booked her for our upcoming maternity shoot!

We originally booked Rachael for our first wedding ceremony when we had only 9 people in the park due to Covid, but she did such a fantastic job that we needed to bring her back to capture our special day with our friends and family. Our desire to have her capture both of our big days is a testament to her professionalism and skill, and all of the pictures we’ve seen today are as good an indicator as any that we made a great choice!

Rachael was extremely responsive and always happy to share her advice on how we could best capture our big day. Whether it was planning logistics for family photos / first look photos / etc, or just knowing the best places to capture the looks that we wanted, she was extremely insightful & reassuring, which made every step of planning this portion of our wedding so much more enjoyable. Her attentiveness and attention to detail made it easy for her to capture our day just as we envisioned it.

I cannot say enough amazing things about Rachael and her team! She captured our wedding day just as we had envisioned it and somehow made it look even better!  Her photos made us feel like our day could be featured in a magazine. She made myself and all of my bridesmaids feel so beautiful. It's been over a year since our wedding and I still find myself going back through the photos of that day all the time. My friends and I still talk about how gorgeous the photos are and how everyone felt so beautiful. Even though it rained on our day, you could barely tell in the photos! Rachael has a beautiful light & dreamy style that totally captured how we felt on that day. She was so responsive and knowledgeable and happily answered all of our questions. She was a calming presence on that day and helped us keep to our photo timeline, which helped with the events of the whole day. I would absolutely choose her if we were to do it all over again! I highly recommend her services!

We hired Rachael Kazmier Associates to photograph our wedding and we could not have been more pleased. From the moment we hired her, she was extremely helpful and responsive, always happy to jump on a video call to answer questions. On the day of, her associate Lauren was very efficient in getting all the shots, so we were able to enjoy ourself throughout the night. We were so pleased to receive a some sneak peak photos a few days after our wedding and just got our full gallery which was stunning. We highly recommend for your wedding!

I recently booked Rachael & her associate Lexi for my downtown Chicago wedding and I could not have had a better experience! Rachael & Lexi were so accommodating during the planning process and I’ve never seen such exquisite attention to detail. On wedding day, they completely took control of the timeline and executed everything perfectly! I don’t think I stressed once all day because they handled everything that came our way. A week later, I received my sneak peek photos and they are absolutely STUNNING! I can hardly wait until the entire album is finished, but I already know it’s going to be amazing. I could not recommend Rachael Kazmier Photography enough, 10/10 for every part of the wedding photography process! These ladies are incredible!

Rachael is an absolute dream to work with! From the very beginning Rachael was easy to get in contact with, she took the time on our first phone call to understand the vision I was going for with our wedding, she even gave me feedback when I was deciding on what bridesmaid dresses to pick. She truly goes above and beyond for her clients!

Our engagement session with Rachael was perfect she was even able to make our 4 month old puppy smile for photos! (a true talent) We had never gotten professional photos taken and she made the whole experience so fun it didn't even feel like we were taking photos.

The actual wedding day. I have no words Rachael is so talented! From the moment she arrived Rachael had the best attitude and makes you feel like a movie star with all of the compliments and kind words. Every person in my bridal party and family who had spoken to Rachael raved about how amazing she was and that was before we even saw the photos! Rachael turned around a sneak peek with so many photos within I think a day of our wedding and it was so fun to relive on our honeymoon. The actual album came weeks later which was also a quick turnaround and every single photo was perfect. I had so many favorites to choose from it is impossible to pick! She captured every detail and type of picture I requested and a million more of her creative style.

Overall, Rachael was the perfect photographer, and I would choose her again a million times over and recommend her to everyone!!

About

Rachael Kazmier
Photographer Rachael Kazmier About me

I’m a creator at heart who always dreamed of running her own business…  The dream itself changed a lot – one week, it was owning a flower farm, and the next, it was designing wedding gowns (totally inspired by Elizabeth James in the Parent Trap!).   But I never thought I’d be a professional photographer…  Looking back now, I should have seen this coming! I’ve always adored photography and was the self-proclaimed ‘documenter’ in my friend group. I’d go everywhere with my pink Sony point-and-shoot camera tucked away in my purse, ready to capture the moment. Let’s just say my first apartment was covered in printed photos of friends, memories, and travels!  I now serve 30+ amazing couples each year, capturing the genuine love and emotions of their destination weddings and elopements. I’ve also added three incredible associates to my team who work closely with me to tell even more love stories through the Rachael Kazmier Photography experience.
