As a wedding photographer, I’ve watched Rachael’s business flourish and evolve over the years, so when it came time for me to hire our wedding photographer, I scheduled our Isla Mujeres destination wedding around her availability.

Rachael’s photos from our engagement + wedding are romantic, timeless and full of emotion. She knows how to capture all of the little moments in between AND still get all of those important family and group photos. The photos that she created on our wedding day were more than I could have dreamed of, and she managed to get everything I wanted (which was a tall order) and then some.

Oh, and I swear she is a dog whisperer because the photos she got with our furbaby are perfect!!!

Leading up to the wedding, she was only a phone call or text away to chat about wedding ideas, photo locations or timeline suggestions.

Her fun energy and up for anything attitude made the whole process from the engagement session to the wedding day so easy and fun.

I trusted her completely to see our wedding day through her camera and the results were pure magic.

I cannot rave and love on her enough, so if you are looking for a photographer who is going to create beautiful photos and feel like a best friend on your wedding day, you have both in Rachael. :)

My husband and I both knew we HAD to hire Rachael the minute we saw her beautiful wedding photos everywhere at the consultation room at our venue. I was absolutely relieved (and thrilled!) when she was available for our day. We could not wait to meet Rachael after our first phone call because she was so fun to talk with and had such great ideas. When we met her for our engagement session, we had a blast and honestly didn't want the night to end!

Then our wedding day... Rachael was fabulous in every way and I was so excited to see her the morning of the wedding. She has an eye for details and captures every hug, happy tear, laugh and kiss so perfectly. When she sent us a message that our photos were ready, we both cried through every photo because she had captured us and our wedding day so beautifully. We are sad the wedding day is over because we just want to keep hanging out with Rachael!

We loved Rachael so much that we booked her again for a family photo session the following year. She is truly an amazing photographer and person and you cannot pass up any opportunity to work with her. She is the best!

Rachel is kind, professional and SO great at making her clients feel comfortable when taking photos. She is so great at her job and does wonderful photos with the perfect lighting.

Rachael is amazing! She brings such great energy to the engagement session and on the wedding day. She works so well with all of the other vendors and our bridal party. She gives great cues to the entire group and communicates well not only on the day but via email leading up to the day. She was so flexible with date and venue changes due to covid and she had such an impressive turnaround time with our photos! She sent over the most gorgeous sneak peak a couple days after the wedding and we had our entire gallery within one month! She also does a fabulous job on editing photos and has great attention to detail. One of my bridesmaids already hired her for her wedding!

RACHAEL IS EVERYTHING!!!! Our original photographer canceled on us about 6 weeks out and Rachael had done my friends wedding and I was obsessed, so I was thrilled to hear she was available ( truly so lucky).  Everything happens for a reason because I truly don’t think our day would have been as great if it weren’t for her. She brings such amazing energy and was so great to work with. She even sends a sneak peak a few days after which is amazing! My sister is a wedding planner and has worked with a ton of photographers and Rachael automatically went to the top of her list. Her photos are to die for!!!! Book her, you will not be disappointed!!

I found Rachael through referral and booked her for my Covid wedding in August 2020. She is amazing as a professional and on a personable level, not to mention her pictures are beautiful! She is so down to earth and really works with you as a client. Weddings are stressful, but I loved working with her so much that I booked her again for my maternity photos in July 2021! I highly recommend her for your wedding or any other photography needs.

Where do I even begin?! Rachael was easily the BEST decision we made for our wedding. Not only is she an incredibly talented artist but she's an excellent communicator, professional, organized, kind, and above all, really fun to be around. We had both our engagement shoot and our wedding day with Rachael and myself and my husband actually had FUN doing both (and like many, my husband wasn't initially excited to spend hours taking photos). I've looked back and all of the pictures at least 100 times and still smile every time I do - they are stunning. She captured all of the big and little moments so perfectly.

The actual pictures are important but working with someone that makes the day enjoyable is just as important (I think!). Rachael became part of our crew and my friends and family affectionately call her by her first name in recapping the day, as if she was another bridesmaid we've known for years. I am genuinely sad the day is over and we don't get to spend more time with our friend - if you are lucky enough to get to work with her I know you will feel the same.

Rachael was the best decision we made for our May 2022 wedding! From our very first phone call, we clicked - She is sweet, fun, and a great listener. You spend your entire wedding day with your photographer, and Rachael (who always has a positive attitude) is a pro at making everyone laugh and feel comfortable. She had great tips for taking good pictures, and even carries around a makeup kit for touch-ups - She's essentially an extra bridesmaid! It goes without saying, but Rachael's pictures are stunning - Both our engagement and wedding albums are vibrant, timeless, and something we'll cherish forever. Their beauty continues to take our breath away. Overall, throughout the entire process, Rachael was kind, warm, responsive, thoughtful, patient, and beyond helpful (she even helped us find a videographer super last-minute, springing to action within moments of when I texted her). Her organization and attention to detail is unparalleled, and she leaves no stone un-turned. She was there for us every step of the way, and truly became a friend to us.


Rachael Osborn
Photographer Rachael Osborn About me

My love affair with photography and the arts dates back further than I remember, but it was my husband who first saw my potential as business owner. After ten years in business and two cross-country moves, I'm wildly thankful to have a career that I not only adore, but has allowed me to connect with others during some of the most joyous moments of their lives.   A storyteller at heart (and unapologetic book worm), I bring my background as a former literature teacher to my wedding day approach, capturing the full legacy of each day I'm entrusted with. My wedding superpower? It's CONNECTION. I believe in connecting with you, building a relationship that feels effortlessly friendly, and capturing what maters to YOU. After all, it's your story...I'm just here to document it.
