The whole 9 yards! From start to finish, we've got you covered! Coverage does vary based on the number of hours booked, but most clients do not need more than 8-10 hours to cover getting ready, the ceremony, and the reception. If your day has a lot of travel or special circumstances, let us know, & we can talk through your unique situation and coverage needs.
Rachel is our lead photographer and has an amazing team of videographers. When you book us for both, we team up with another photographer and videographer to make sure no part of your special day is missed!
Do we want to travel the world and photograph amazing couples like you? Um... that would be a YES!!!! We have traveled all over the U.S. & even in other countries for photography work. Our favorite location is one that is special to you, so we won't limit you on WHERE we photograph your special day.
You can- however to get the most bang for your buck you'll want to book your hours within a package. This ensures we are prepared for the day & have your timeline perfected. If things run behind - we typically allow an extra couple hours after your service ends (just in case) and can stay late for you if needed.
We use a variety of gear, but primarily Nikon cameras/lenses. We are proficient in all types of lighting scenarios (extremely dark reception vibe? - no worries!) and we can snap away regardless of how bright/dark it is. We also use long (zoom) lenses so we can capture the moment without being intrusive. Our goal is to get the best shot & give you peace of mind that we have the photos & video taken care of!
Nope! Every wedding client will get a downloadable gallery of their wedding photos. EVERY. SINGLE. IMAGE!
We suggest using www.mpix.com for the best consumer quality prints and recommend anything larger than an 8x10 be printed in our professional lab.
You can also order a canvas or framed prints for your walls, too! These are color corrected and perfected in the pro lab and UV protected to guarantee a lifetime of beauty.
We include an engagement session in our ultimate packages at no additional cost, however, if you want to add an engagement session onto your package - it is $250!
As far as planning your engagement session - Everyone has different timelines and needs, but as long as you have the photos done 6 weeks before the wedding -- you're set in our books! Most clients do their engagement session 6 months to a year before their wedding, but not everyone has that long of an engagement. So, when you choose to schedule your engagement session is really based on your individual needs and preferences.

"Rachel with Must Love Adventures was brilliant to work with! She was such a fun and positive presence on our day, her smile spread around the wedding party and was truly so happy to be there doing what she loves. When we got our photos back, our families were saying how the pictures took us straight back to the moment of the day of our wedding. The pictures are stunning and we will treasure them forever. As folks from out of state we felt we were in the best possible hands on the day!"

"Picking a photographer for one of the biggest days of your life can be stressful. When I was on the hunt for a wedding photographer, I didn’t really have anyone in mind - luckily, I happened upon Rachel with Must Love Adventures! I had no idea at that time that I would be starting a business relationship that would last much longer than my wedding day. Not only were my wedding photos absolutely perfect, so was the service. They were so easy to work with and captured that day so perfectly!"
