We absolutely adore working with Rachel. Not only is she a phenomenal photographer but she is highly communicative, reliable, flexible and so much fun to work with. Rachel is a true team player from collaborating in advance of the wedding on the timeline, to working with us on the day of the wedding and even through the publishing process after the wedding.
I have so much love and respect for Rachel as an artist and a friend. She is consistently reliable, flexible and kind to her clients and with the the creative partners with whom she aligns. Wedding days run smoothly and the energy is always good. The Bella team whole heartedly endorses Rachel Havel.
Working with Rachel Havel as a planner, I always know the quality of the photos will be exceptional. But even more than this, the day of the wedding she is very calming, professional, very organized with her photo lists and keeps everything on time. She radiates confidence and truly invests herself into her work to make the experience the best it can be for my clients weddings.
Rachel and her team are so kind, personable, laid back and professional. She captured every detail and the best moments so beautifully and in a way that felt very in line with our personal style. Even after our wedding, we received many compliments from our guests about Rachel and how awesome she was!
Our wedding day was truly the happiest day of our lives, and Rachel played such a huge role in that. There aren't enough thank you's in the world to express our gratitude to Rachel for the work she did on our wedding day and for documenting it in a way that looks even more beautiful than we remember.
Rachel was so inviting + warm which made it really easy for my husband to get out of his shell! She also was friendly yet commanding with my huge family which eliminated so much "idling time" which got us to the dinner much faster. Loved her as my wedding photographer + have been recommending her to all my engaged friends!
Rachel is an incredibly talented photographer + there is simply no comparison. She was incredibly helpful throughout the planning process + worked seamlessly with other vendors. She has a way about her that makes you incredibly comfortable + the candid photos she captured of us are some of my favorites and I will treasure them forever.
Rachel is so kind, caring, and thoughtful with an incredibly calming presence! It feels like she's part of your family. From day one, Rachel makes you a priority, and as crazy as the day can get, she will calm you down, make sure you stay focused on what's important and what matters throughout the day, and she makes sure you and your partner capture as many intimate moments together as you can. We couldn't be happier with the story she's told through our photos and the moments she captured for us
