welcome

I'm so glad you're here. You are engaged and about to experience one of the happiest days of your life. I'm so happy and excited for you! My husband and I have been together now seven years.

 I love capturing the romantic gorgeous portraits and details but also the candid moments and to capture your family and friends in a joyful and genuine way. Scroll on down and check out all about us, the process, the experience and what makes us so unique.

I've been a professional photographer for over 9 years. I pursued my passion and training by earning my Bachelors of Fine Art in Photography from Arizona State University. I have photographed over hundreds of weddings over the years, I fall in love with them more and more each weekend; I love our couples, the excitement in the morning, the joy, the beautiful details, the candid moments that make you laugh or cry, seeing the love of your family and friends, the vows you will make, the speeches that touch your heart and a good dance party! When I'm not spending time with my husband Daniel and my family, photographing weddings is the most rewarding part of my life. I'm so excited for you to scroll through and get to know more about us!

"From the moment my husband and I met Rachael and worked with her, we knew we had made the right choice. From start to finish, Rachael's professionalism, attention to detail and presentation were impeccable. Rachael's photos speak for themselves and she is incredibly talented. She is one of the best photographers I've ever encountered. Choosing to work with Rachael was one of the best choices we made for our wedding and one decision that I'd make over and over again. I can also confidently say that my husband and family would 100% agree - working with Rachael was definitely a favorite of theirs and my wedding planners as well. If you're interested in booking Rachael, please don't hesitate a moment longer - I promise, you won't be disappointed!"

"Our experience with her was above and beyond! She photographed our engagement photos, rehearsal dinner and wedding. She captured us, our family and loved ones in our true light and character. The pictures were not only beautiful, but they captured the emotions that were felt on each day. Her work not only exceeds expectations but her personality is warm and sweet. My husband and I were intimidated to be taking photos and Rachael made us feel so comfortable as if it was a natural thing! We had so much fun with her and she made us laugh and enjoy ourselves. For anyone planning an upcoming wedding or event, look no further than Rachael as she delivers nothing but perfection for your special time."

"If I could give Rachael 10 stars, I certainly would. We met with a few other photographers before Rachael and immediately fell in love when we met her! She has one of the sweetest souls I've ever met. She has such a calm, collected nature that made me as a bride feel very relaxed. Along with her awesome personality, she also has some of the most amazing photography work I've ever seen! Rachael understood our vision and brought all of that to life. We have received so many compliments on our photographs from Rachael. I never once saw Rachael without a smile on her face. I definitely recommend Rachael Koscica! Thank you for capturing our vision perfectly."

“Rachael is absolutely OUTSTANDING. She is friendly, professional, sincere, and such a joy to work with. She makes the whole process so easy and fun, while delivering the highest quality product. My husband and I both loved working with her. Not only does she achieve all of this, she is SO organized. She puts in the time and effort to plan all the details out so pictures on your big day is a breeze. For me, this was huge. I knew I could depend on her and stressing about our photographer/pictures never once crossed my mind. We could not have asked for more gorgeous photos that captured our special day. I highly, highly, recommend choosing Rachael as your photographer, you will never look back!"

“I honestly don’t know where to begin – Rachael is one of a kind. She was without a doubt the most professional vendor we worked with throughout our destination wedding planning. She was extremely responsive, personable, and a joy to work with. Rachael went above and beyond her duties as our wedding photographer to help us with our timeline and she offered invaluable tips and tricks for preparing for the wedding day. Rachael always has a smile on her face and the kindest spirit that will put you at ease immediately during the chaos that the wedding day can bring. On top of all of this, her photography skills are outstanding. I highly recommend hiring Rachael."

"She is so professional to work with, and her work is so incredible! I was so nervous hiring a photographer, and I had met so many photographers at the Bridal Expo it only made my husband and I more confused and frustrated. I was recommended to Rachael and after the first email from her we were sold. (Besides her amazing photos she has). She genuinely wants to get to know you as a couple, and capture those moments in her art. It was like we had one of our close friends with us throughout our engagement session and wedding photography. Bonus, we received our photos quickly! Thank you Rachael!"

rave reviews 

My fine art style is unique shooting with a mixture of film and digital.

I shoot a balance between a romantic editorial style, guiding and helping my clients feel natural and comfortable in front of the camera. And photographing those gorgeous details and candid moments that tell the story of your wedding day.

I believe that a photographer’s job is not simply to snap endless photos, but to transform a series of individual moments and images into a carefully designed, cohesive collection – a work of art, really – that perfectly conveys the undeniable, one-of-a-kind story that could only belong to you.

But just as important as the final product, is putting you at ease and helping you prepare for the wedding, so on that one extraordinary day, you’re relaxed and fully in the moment.

All about my

step one:

Let's get to know one another

I love to meet with my couples and making genuine connections with my brides. I learn so much more about you during a phone consultation or in person meeting. It's such a wonderful way to really get to know each other and I can learn more about your story and journey as a couple and what you have planned for your wedding day. I'm so blessed to meet such incredible clients and I'm so honored to be there for you to capture it all.

step Two:

Save the Date

Couples reserve their wedding date six months to one year in advanced. Saving your date is easy! I will send you my online portal to review your customized package and a signed contract and 1/3 down retainer to save the date! It is a easy online portal to keep track of your payments.

Whatever I can do to make it an easy and smooth experience for you is my top priority. Now that you're booked you can cross off the two biggest vendors off your list! Your venue and now the photographer! Yay!!

step Three:

engagement session

Oh the engagement session is SO absolutely fun. It's not every day you get to experience and document this part of your life together. Celebrate. Not to mention it's fun to dress up, show off your style and get lost on an adventure with the love of your life. Let's have some FUN! Climbing boulders or stroll through the trees, in front of mountains, in the desert landscape, downtown wherever it may take us - it is an exciting and fun experience and allows us an opportunity to take pictures before the wedding day. These are perfect for Save the Dates, prints to display at the wedding and above all else - memories.

step Four:

Timeline & Family photo list

Planning a photo timeline or plan of events is an essential and critical part of the wedding day and experience. You want to make sure you have enough time for pictures throughout the day. I can help you with this! I will also ask you for a family photo list of groupings you'd like us to photograph during family portraits with examples to show you. This all makes it easy for you the day of so you can relax and be in the moment!
