Anyone can take pretty pictures,

get to know New England Wedding Photographer Rachel Abell

I love catching secret glances, massive grins, wild dances, peaceful moments, twinkling eyes, flushed cheeks, & unscripted joy.

Before I found myself loving everything weddings, I was a television news anchor and reporter. The organizational skills that I learned in that career, and my ability to think on my feet, make for a photography experience that is always on point and worry-free. I love making new friends and I get along with everyone! So whoever you need me to be on your wedding day (friend, personal assistant, comedian, buffer), I’m there to support you and always fit seamlessly into any wedding situation. 

As your photographer I will:

Be so organized and so prepared that if things go wrong (as they inevitably will!), we can always make it work.

Know when it’s time to be in the center of the action, to capture all the joyful, unscripted moments, but also understand when it’s time to melt into the background to capture all those secret, quiet instants that make your day so sweet.

Promise no false posing. No fake smiles. Just pure, raw joy!

Always practice grace under pressure.

Cry during your vows and toasts. It’s a guarantee.

A Note from Rachel...

I'm a wife to an amazing husband and mother to two beautiful girls and one happy baby boy. I’m a lover of mashed potatoes; a pinot grigio & blue grass aficionado; a joyful gardener; and a fanatical cook. I read cookbooks like other people read novels. I laugh hard at least once every day and cry often. My own wedding day was totally chaotic, totally crazy, and totally wonderful. And you know what made it so magical? Agreeing to spend the rest of my life with my best friend, in front of all the people my husband & I love most in the world. Those spontaneous seconds of deep emotion, the irresistible human spirit, and the eternal beauty of two people choosing each other. Chills. Weddings are enchanted. And I am wildly, wildly addicted to them! 

If this sounds like how you want your wedding tale told, then reach out! We'll know pretty quick if we're meant to be a part of each other's lives, and if we are, then what a story it will be.
