you're getting married!


...and you're here because you have an incredible love story.

A shout from the rooftops, dancing in the kitchen, can't stop smiling (or looking at your engagement ring) kind of love story. A love story you want to tell your grandchildren about one day.

I can help you visually tell — and preserve — your love story.
Together, we can make magic.

and that's where I come in.


I'm just here to help tell it.
And I promise you, I'll make sure to tell it right.

because your story is

Wedding planning is so exciting, but I also know how overwhelming it can be. Finding the right wedding photographer is SO important because your photographer will be by your side all day long! And, when the day is over (and it flies by!), one of the few things you'll be left with are your wedding photos. My job is to make sure they're good, so you can relive every moment, both big and small.

I absolutely love capturing weddings, and I promise to do everything in my power to make both your wedding day and your photos fun, effortless, and stress-free. It is my privilege to tell your love story, and I want to tell it right! I will be there for you along the way not only as your photographer, but as your friend.


I'm Rachel!


in sunshine,

and rain,

and snow.



and night. any weather, in any venue, in any light, I'll be there to capture your day with confidence.

You've checked out my website and my Instagram, and you love my style... reach out to me, and I'll be touch soon!

If I have your date available, I'll be so excited to get to know you and learn about your love story. I'll send over a detailed wedding experience guide and some full galleries, and I'll ask a few questions about you two as a couple and about your big day. I'd love to set up a FaceTime or Zoom date so we can chat more and get to know one another!

We decide we're a photographer/couple match made in heaven, and you want to book! Yay!

I'll send over a contract for you to sign electronically and an invoice for you to pay your deposit. Once those two things are done, we're officially official! Your wedding date is on my calendar, and if anybody else inquires about your date, I'll have to say, "Sorry friend, I'm already booked!"

2. it's official!

Time for your engagement shoot! This is one of my favorite parts of the process because we'll really get to know each other and feel like friends by the end of the session.

I'll make sure you two feel comfortable in front of my camera so you're modeling pros on your wedding day! Soon after your session, you'll have a huge gallery of beautiful images to share and print and oogle at for years to come.

3. engagement pictures, yay!

Before your big day, I'll be in touch to go over allllll the details to make sure everything is perfect and stress free on your wedding day!

We'll talk timelines, family formal shot lists, portrait locations, vendors, and more!

You get to relax and enjoy the happiest day of your life with your spouse, and I'll be there to capture every detail along the way.

You can rest assured I'll capture every moment and detail from getting ready to party dancing at the end of the night. And if you need anything throughout the day? I'll be there to help as an unofficial bridesmaid with a camera :)

5. the big day!

learn more about the process

When all of your images have been edited to perfection, I'll send you a link to your online gallery! I'd recommend making a date of it: pop some champagne and spend awhile looking through your pictures with your spouse as you two relive your wedding day.

You'll be able to download your images immediately and order prints or canvases to hang in your home! If you added an heirloom engagement album to your package, I'll help you design that beauty.

6. gallery time

learn more about the process

I'll be cheering for you and your marriage. I love the relationships I create with my wedding clients, and that doesn't end when our contract does.

I love to watch your families grow, and I'll be here to capture your next big milestones. I can't wait to catch up and greet you with a hug when I see you again!

7. after the
final gallery

learn more about the process

I believe that every couple deserves a complete wedding photography experience, so my base wedding package includes full day coverage (from getting ready to party dancing at the end of the night!), a second professional photographer (insurance that not a moment is missed!), and a complimentary engagement session (so we can get to know each other!)

You'll be able to customize my wedding package with extra hours of coverage and/or a custom heirloom album if you like.

Investment DETAILS

The Rachel Mercer Photography signature wedding collection is $4,800


Every step of the way, Rachel was helpful, fun, insightful and incredibly generous with her time and energy.

We are overjoyed with how our photos turned out. Whenever I look at our photos, it reminds me to be grateful and celebrate with the people I love. I’m not sure you could ask any more from your wedding photographer!


-Paige & Aaron

Her photos alone are worth hiring her for, but she goes far above and beyond her editing and photography skills. Starting with her photos, they are stunning true to life colors that I absolutely love. She is very confident and calming with her posing. She knows exactly what looks good and is great at helping us feel comfortable and giving us direction. She’s very easy going and also organized and efficient. Finally, she is just such a kind and genuine and calming presence. I really couldn’t recommend her highly enough.



-Lauren & Tommy


Rachel is amazing! I highly recommend her. She was the perfect pick to photograph our engagement pictures and our wedding. She went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and is so friendly to all. She got sneak peek pictures incredibly fast as well as the rest of our photos. She worked with us to make sure she got everything we wished for. We will definitely be using her in the future for other photograph needs!!



-Emilee & Daniel


We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer and person to capture our special day. Rachel truly cares about her clients and she was able to capture everything that we wanted. She took the time to adjust to our changing timelines and made us feel at ease and comfortable before and during the wedding. The quality of the photos that we received were outstanding and very well edited. We strongly recommend Rachel!


-Mariah & travis



Rachel is an absolute gem to work with! She is so accommodating and listened to exactly what Michael and I wanted for our photos for our wedding day in addition to bringing to us so many ideas for wonderful photo opportunities. She is incredibly professional, and made our wedding and engagement photos fun. We are absolutely thrilled with how all of the photos turned out! We cannot stop looking at them, and could not be more glad and grateful that Rachel was there to capture such a special day for us.


-julie & michael



Rachel is just the best! She made us comfortable in front of the camera and made us feel extra special for the day. Due to COVID we had to make a lot of adjustments and Rachel was right there willing to do whatever it took to make our day special and for us to not stress about the craziness. I can’t wait for her to photograph our vow renewal and reception next year!! Highly recommend her for all your big moments in life.
