  • Rachel is the most wonderful photographer! We kept in contact quite regularly, even though I live in LA and she in Oregon. She answered all my questions and concerns promptly and professionally. One our wedding day, her and her assistant went above and beyond to capture the busy day and all the emotions. She was even 6+ months pregnant! She is extremely upbeat and completely flexible during such a stressful day. She was such a trooper! I couldn't thank her enough for all the effort she put into capturing every moment! I am going to recommend her services to anyone who is in need of the perfect photographer! Thank you so much Rachel!!!!

  • Finding the right photographer was one of the most important tasks in my wedding planning saga, right up there with the dress--so I went through a many-tiered process of cross-referencing referrals with ratings and then looking at portfolios to isolate a few favorites. Of the handful I was left with, Rachel was not the one who tended to pop up first in results based on whatever algorithm is in play, but she was the one whose work I liked the best. I sent a few queries out and she was the first to respond with a thorough and friendly answer to my questions. A few days later she given me another reply that was equally detailed and sincere, while the others had either not replied at all or submitted a disinterested, one line answer. I could tell immediately that there was a real person there not just some impersonal institution. She was equally easy to work with in person, managing to be both in-charge and unassuming, a leader when necessary and invisible in the background at other times.... Read more

  • Rachel was absolutely wonderful to work with! My hubby and I were in AWE when the final pictures were delivered. Rachel was punctual, prompt, productive and so very professional. Rachel made us look our best and made us feel so comfortable with having her by our sides to capture our most importand day. Rachel's work was truly top of the charts and others would be crazy not to work with her. She is so warm, friendly and passionate about her work. We are so grateful that she was a part of our team on such a beautiful day. Highly recommend!! 5 stars!!

  • Rachel was so wonderful to work with. She was fairly priced and very thorough during the planning process. She was also so kind during the entire day even when I had a mini freak out 20 minutes before the ceremony. The pictures came out so beautifully. I can’t stop looking at them!

  • We were so happy that we found Rachel! She was so easy to work with and her photos are stunning. Her sweet and calm personality was so appreciated on our wedding day. She made us feel relaxed even when things weren't perfect. She rolls with the punches and does everything in her power to produce the best work possible. You can tell that Rachel cares deeply about photography and her clients. I would highly recommend her!

  • The wedding planning process is known to be grueling and finding a photographer who you can trust and who actively makes things easier is pretty key. That's Rachel. From the first message and in every following meeting all the way to the big day Rachel was a constant positive, helpful, amazing person. I think out of every person who helped out with our wedding, she was the most enthusiastic and genuinely happy person. My husband and I clicked with her right away and it ended up making for a really great picture process. She gave great direction, had such a well defined outline for what we needed to cover and she made everyone at the event feel so comfortable. I specifically got compliments about how friendly Rachel was but also that she blended it really well. She was never in our face or getting "in the way". She felt like a part of the wedding if anything. I cried when I got the first pictures back I was so happy. She really did capture every ounce of love our group had for eachother... Read more

  • What more can we say, other than that Rachel is fun and amazing. We booked Rachel for engagement pictures and the wedding and she was always a joy to work with. We had a great time walking around downtown Portland for the engagement pictures, including taking Rachel to one of our favorite dive bars! Communication was always great, I can't recommend Rachel enough!

  • I have nothing but the best to say about having had Rachel as our wedding photographer! It's been 42 days since we got married, and I probably receive a compliment about my wedding photos and/or the quality of Rachel and her work daily. I think I just have the best wedding photos ever. When I met Rachel over a year before my wedding, I just so genuinely liked talking with her that I knew I would be excited to have her around on my wedding day. She answered all my questions and really listened. She also seemed detail-oriented like me, which I liked. Rachel offers a preplanning meeting prior to your wedding day where you plan out the entire day in a very detailed way, and this is just what I needed as someone who is also a detailed planner. After having this meeting closer to my wedding date, I felt like I really had a handle over how the whole day would go. This calmed me down soooooo much!! The day of my wedding, Rachel showed up early and she took SO MANY PICTURES! My guests a... Read more

  • We had a blast working with Rachel! She is so speedy, she had a collection of photos posted on her blog for our family and friends to enjoy only several days after the wedding, and the photos are even better than I could ever have imagined! Our wedding day was so chaotic but fantastic in many ways and looking at these photos helps me remember what happened. Family members are still raving about the gorgeous photos and we really enjoy how she was able to capture our guests' personalities. Outside of the quality of her photos, we especially appreciated how flexible and accommodating Rachel was with our wedding schedule/plans. She met up with us to review our plans for the wedding day and was very responsive to any changes we made after the meeting. We also appreciated being able to add or subtract items in the photography package. On the day of the wedding, Rachel was very hard working and effectively managed to wrangle together a LARGE group of people (some of whom do not speak English... Read more

  • Rachel Lecrone is such a talented photographer, we are so happy that we chose her to capture one of the most special days of our lives. Rachel took the time to meet with us several times before our wedding so we could get to know her, talk about what we wanted, and make a plan so our wedding day photos would go off in a smooth and organized fashion. She is a true professional at what she does, and one thing I was never worried about was our photography. Her pricing is very reasonable and you can basically create a custom package that will meet your needs and budget. Most importantly, our photos are beautiful. They are above and beyond what I ever imagined they would be, and we will cherish them forever!

  • Rachel is amazing! Rachel did our engagement photos as well as our wedding day. She made our entire wedding planning process easier (we used her timeline to frame our entire wedding day). She is one of the nicest, friendliest, professional people I have ever met and working with her was a pleasure. She made us feel so comfortable during the engagement photos, both my wife and I are on the shyer side, and they were amazing. We had such a fun time on our photo shoot. We met with her again before the wedding to go over the timeline and to discuss any specific photos and and styles that we wanted. Again she was easy going and very detail oriented. Every time we met with her we felt more at ease about the wedding day. The day of the wedding was flawless. Rachel was great and helped us out in so many ways. I cannot stress enough how great she is. Her photographs are amazing, she is a true artist and has such a keen eye for capturing the essence of each moment.

  • After getting married and going through the rigmarole of all that's entailed, the last thing I thought that I'd want to do is write a review. Sending Thank You cards is enough of a feat, right? Well Rachel was SO fabulous, wonderful, and amazing, I have literally logged on to this site just to spread the word about how incredibly stupendous she is. Rachel immediately became the best friend that everyone wants to invite to their wedding. I would literally hire her back just to have her attend. Beyond being straight fantastic at her job, Rachel has an infectiously positive personality that makes the day even better. People tell you to splurge on the photos, and they are totally right... The difference with Rachel is the quality of those photos were breathtaking, and the value was unmatched. I cannot imagine my day without her, and I will always remember my day in a perfect light because of her. She is professional and friendly, but can still round up unruly family members in a ...

  • Rachel has been the most responsive, most professional, and most accommodating of all the vendors we had at our wedding. She spent a great deal of time preparing, providing professional advice, and making sure we got exactly what we wanted. I'm generally a cheap person, willing to cut a few corners in order to save money. My now wife was not willing to cut any corner when it came to photography, though. I now agree that we (or she) made a wonderful decision hiring Rachel as our photographer. I couldn't ask for more.
