Rachel Lahlum Photography

From the moment we connect, my goal is to help you have a great wedding photography experience. With experience in over 500 weddings, I know just how to help you plan, work with you to meet your photography vision, guide you through being photographed, and best of all, we have fun! My photos are crisp and clean, with bright colors and natural styles. I love natural light and outdoors, but also enjoy photographing with off-camera lighting in dark and challenging spaces. I use a variety of shooting styles throughout each wedding, including traditional and contemporary portraits, photojouranlism and candids, and closeups of every detail. What I look forward to most about weddings is creating a custom collection of photos that tell your wedding day story.


"I was referred to Rachel Lahlum Photography by a friend. After my initial sit-down meeting with Rachel, I was 100% confident she was the right photographer to capture my wedding day. Her work is incredible! I fell in love with her true-color style and she is hands-down one of the most organized and professional people I have ever met! All of my family and guests were raving to me after about how awesome Rachel was to work with!" - Cheslea F.

"Rachel is seriously so amazing at what she does! She is so incredibly organized and efficient. She always had a running timeline for us that she edited as details fell into place during our wedding planning. She also had a detailed shot list of everyone and every thing we were looking for and crossed them off the list as she went. Rachel is also so quick and easy to communicate with. She usually would respond to any email I sent to her within a couple hours at most! As for her photography skills, there is no question! She blew us out of the water when we got our wedding photos back! I don’t consider myself to be a photogenic person but Rachel made them look gorgeous! And she also would help me or anyone out if a hair was misplaced or a dress or suit needed to be adjusted for the perfect photo. Rachel is amazing and you will not regret having her photograph your wedding!!!!" - Courtney L

"Rachel was awesome! She was so organized and professional, which kept everyone on track. We met with her twice beforehand to discuss our photography needs. She had a detailed list of each picture we wanted and with which family members. She literally checked each picture off the list as we went to make sure no one was missed. She was super easygoing and "rolled with it". She helped with my dress's buttons when they were giving my matron of honor trouble. She embraced our lovie, energetic puppy jumping around like a mad man. She had a mellow attitude that helped keep my stress down. We've got our "sneak peek" back and the pictures look amazing. Love the outdoorsy / nature feel of her pictures!! We went to two sites in addition to the ceremony and reception sites. We got some amazing shots on a waterfall and sunset. It was really neat to have several different backgrounds to our prints." - Melissa P.

"I cannot overstate how INCREDIBLE Rachel is as a wedding photographer! Our pictures are absolutely stunning, and I know we will always treasure them. Leading up to the wedding day, Rachel was easy to contact and helped me feel calm about the entire photography process. Besides a beautiful final product, Rachel made our wedding day so smooth and effortless. She and her assistant photographer were kind, punctual, calm, professional, and enjoyable to be around. They didn't miss a single detail and helped me enjoy our wedding day even more. Thank you for everything!" - Zoe R.

"Rachel was the most caring and understanding vendor. She was very flexible while planning a Covid wedding. We received sneak peaks extremely quick after our big day. Rachel did a great job making us feel comfortable and captured every part of our day. One thing we didn’t realize was exactly how much Rachel would help the day “flow”. She kept us on track and captured all the moments while giving us the freedom to enjoy our day! Thank you Rachel! Your work will forever be displayed in our house!" - Nicole R.
