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.
If you're looking for...
...then we're probably the fit!
LIGHT, CLEAN, TRUE TO COLOR images that will stand the test of time
and a wedding photographer WHO FEELS MORE LIKE A friend,
You've checked out my website and my Instagram, and you love what you see... reach out to me, and I'll be touch soon!
If I have your date available, I'll be so excited to connect and learn about your love story. I'll send over a 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 wedding photography 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!"
Time for your engagement photos! 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 decorate your home.
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!
Know that I'm always here to be a resource to you from the time you book up until your wedding day! Feel free to ask me any questions you may have along the way.
IT'S YOUR WEDDING DAY! You get to relax and enjoy the happiest day of your life with your spouse and all of your favorite people, 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 :)
You're excited, I'm excited... I cannot wait to share some images from your wedding day with you! I make sneak peeks a big part of my workflow, so you'll get at least 5 bride and groom portraits within 48 hours.
Even better? Within 4 days, I'll send a HUGE sneak peek highlight album with 75+ images from your day! It will have some of my favorite moments from each part of the day so you don't have to wait long for the best of the best.
When all of your images have been hand edited to perfection, I'll send you a link to your online gallery! I'd recommend making a date of it: pop some champagne with your spouse and enjoy reliving your wedding day together.
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 as well.
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!
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!

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.
The Rachel Mercer Photography signature wedding collection is $5,800
It's the best practice for your wedding day portraits!
We'll leave the session feeling like good friends
It will ease any nerves you have about being in front of the camera

They're just FUN!
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.

We couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture our wedding day! From our initial meeting for our engagement shoot to our wedding day, Rachel was an absolute dream to work with! She made us feel comfortable immediately. She is so kind and truly cares about her clients. We particularly loved her attention to every detail and ability to capture the perfect lighting! Her photos are incredible, we are loving our wedding gallery and are having trouble narrowing down our favorites because there are so many amazing ones to choose from!
-MEGHAN & MIKE
I fell in love with her photography style instantly. She’s not only extremely talented, but so sweet and made the whole experience a breeze! The engagement photo session was so much fun with her, and it was like we have known her forever. She’s so kind, funny, and personable. My husband was so nervous before the session, but she made it so comfortable and feel natural. She was there to answer any questions I had during the whole planning process. Her timeline and wedding guideline was a life saver. Our wedding photos are so beautiful, and I am still getting compliments.
-KELLY & DAVID
If you are looking for a wedding photographer, look no further! Working with Rachel is really such a comforting process because she is extremely organized and a great communicator. However, the most important point is that her work and quality are both top notch!!! Her photos are elegant, airy, and a look back at them captures an entire clip in time. Many of our friends wish they would have known about Rachel for their own events after seeing our photos. She is really an artist and a master of her craft.
-CLARA & ANDREW
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.
