"WOULD RECOMMEND A MILLION TIMES OVER"

mackenzie + brandon

We could not be happier that we chose Rachel as our wedding photographer. She encouraged us to be ourselves and never made us feel like we needed to try and be something that we’re not...And our pictures are incredible! They truly capture the day and what it was all about. We cannot stop looking at them!

"SHE ENCOURAGED US TO BE OURSELVES"

kendra + eric

From our engagement shoot, welcome party, to wedding day, her presence was calming & fun, and she made us feel that she was truly happy to be a part of our special moments.

"FIVE STARS AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN..."

mollie + andrew

Rachel has a way of creating a safe space for you to feel yourself. Her presence is mighty but graceful and she captured photos for us we will forever cherish. Rachel really captured the love, playfulness, and genuine happiness that we felt on our wedding day with our family and friends celebrating our love! 

"SHE CAPTURED PHOTOS WE WILL CHERISH FOREVER"

audrey + ben

Every photo is like a breath of fresh air. Not one of them looked stuffy or posed. We had BEAUTIFUL portraits, but also countless candid moments. One of my favorite things about Rachel's photography is that her photos make you FEEL something. They never fail to remind me of exactly how I felt on the greatest day of my life.

"I WILL SING RACHEL FUGATE'S PRAISES FOR THE REST OF MY DAYS."

With an emphasis on artfully candid moments and acting as your own personal family historian, Rachel is a quiet presence on your wedding day, a constant observer. She's been photographing weddings for ten years, and has found that many of her clients value their family the most. They know this is likely one of the only times in their lives where all of the people they love will be in the same room, and she doesn't take that lightly.

Rachel is an introvert and an enneagram nine, which translates to being able to see the quiet moments that others may pass over entirely, sticking to her word (and keeping you in the loop if something changes), staying organized, and remaining calm + adaptable on wedding days.
