"Rebecca captured my wedding BEAUTIFULLY! From our first consultation to the last minutes of the big day she was the sweetest and most helpful person I’ve ever met. My husband and I are crazy awkward sometimes and she made sure to give just enough direction during our engagement session and wedding to help us figure out what to do but also kept things natural. She even helped me navigate some planning, I was clueless about all things wedding. Her personality and crazy amount of talent made her the perfect fit for us and I highly recommend her."

"Working with Rebecca was an absolute delight. She is a pro at making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. She made sure to talk with us ahead of time about what we wanted from our session and gave advice about timing, location, and even best colors to wear. We loved the photographs that she captured and created to show off our engagement and love for each other. We highly recommend Rebecca to anyone who is seeking professional, beautifully stunning photos!"

"Rebecca took our idea for a shoot and truly captured everything I'd hoped for, plus things I didn't realize would mean so much too. We will treasure the photos as they capture our personalities, nuances, and love for each other so beautifully. One of the best parts was that we could just BE, and she knew how to capture what she (and we) had set out to with no pressure, awkward posing or second thought. The gift of time together captured so vividly and candidly is priceless. Rebecca was a joy to have in the midst of fun family time, and I only wish we could document each gathering so perfectly. We were excited to see the photos and her turn around time was the icing on the cake! Highly recommend a documentary type session with her if you want genuine pictures that you'll have to fondly look back on for a lifetime."

"I was nervous at first to model for Rebecca. As a fellow photographer, I’m so used to being BEHIND the camera that I sort of freeze in front of it. I begin to feel anxious and stiff, almost like I have no idea what to do. As a domestic violence/sexual assault survivor and a mother of two, my confidence is in the toilet. Don’t get me wrong, I have a wonderful husband who is always lifting me up and telling me how beautiful I am (He thinks I should be a model) but I just have the hardest time seeing what he does. From the moment Rebecca started prompting me on where to stand I felt at ease. I was free to be myself but when I’d get stuck or start to feel awkward she was right there giving me something to do with my hands or walk a certain direction and BOOM. Magic happened. I was super excited when we left the session to see what she captured because I actually felt insanely confident for once! I can’t wait to be in front of her camera again, absolutely 100% worth it! She’s a true artist, from one to another!"

"It's like tapping back into the old careless, free-spirited me...maybe not knowing what to do or what's coming next, but being guided by HER free spirit. I felt so comfortable with her, just being able to be me---unsure and vulnerable.  At one point I wasn't sure if what I was doing was working for the camera or her vision, but then she laughed and I started laughing too. I know that she is genuine. It was easy and effortless from that point on. I was glad to be her teacher and her student...and vice versa. Seeing the photos afterwards is just complete magic, where I realize she captured the freeness that I was feeling, even when I've forgotten that I'm free."

"Props to Rebecca for pulling out the emotions in me.  Being pregnant requires a strength so strong and the grueling parts of it are so often hidden by the natural grace of a woman.  We are all super and amazing creatures."

"Having your picture taken can be really nerve-wracking. When you catch the lens of the camera staring through you, you can’t help but feel exposed...like, within the moment of the camera’s click you’ve willingly sold part of your soul. Working with Rebecca was different, it was freeing. Instead of feeling like I was being captured in a moment in time, I felt like I was sharing my truth. Through casual conversation I was able to relax and just be myself as the shoot carried on. I hope when you look at these photos you can see me for who I really am - a feisty mix of a confident, insecure, strong and loving woman."

"Rebecca is AMAZING. I wasnt sure how it would be having someone take pictures of us cooking, but she made it effortless! My mom, sister, and I got to do what we love doing together and have someone capture those moments, how cool! Would recommend this type of shoot and Rebecca to everyone. Cant wait to do it again in the future. Thank you!"

"I was really picking myself apart but then I saw what Rebecca captured. I am more than my physical details. My vessel carries purpose, a heart, a soul, love, a being. Thank you again, Rebecca!"

"Rebecca took such INCREDIBLE photos of our wedding. It was so important to me to have captured moments between family members and she just did so much more! I teared up looking at all the photos because it was like reliving the day. If you want to have photos that can make you feel those emotions again and again, Rebecca is definitely the one to make that happen. We will definitely be using her again for a regular family sesh. Oh, also, we got the photos back so quickly!"
