I love the concept for this new website! As regular readers know, I have an entire website dedicated to special fine art photo sessions with women in their wedding dresses [] so when Kylah approached me because she wanted to feature photos from a couple of my brides, I was thrilled to be a part of the concept.  Real Bride in a Dress connects women to images of real ladies in wedding dresses – to give them a more realistic idea about the fit and detailing. She featured Suzy’s wedding in Palos Verdes, CA and Colleen’s bridal session at Wellesley College over on the new site. Click on the images to see more!

We’re not strangers to the OBB concept and client… Our wedding photography was also featured in 2007 and 2008 [2008-1] [2008-2]

I wanted to let you know that I absolutely LOVE the photos that you put up in my bridals gallery.  I love my wedding photos, but realized after the fact that somehow none were taken of just me or just my husband, and I was really bummed to not have that.  The bridals that you took are absolutely stunning and I’m so grateful to have them to add to my [wedding] photos.  (Looking back, I wish I had thought to find a way to have you at our wedding, along with our photographers)  You just have a way of catching the life, beauty and silliness inside of people and using it to make them even more beautiful on the outside (if that makes any sense?)  Thank you for all of the work that you’ve done, from boudoirs to bridals for myself (and for my husband… he’s equally as grateful)…


finally… pictures that I am proud of…

Hi Rachel,

You have no idea how hard it was for me to pick a few pictures for an order; it’s been a few weeks since you posted the pictures and every night I would spend time reviewing and deciding which ones to get.

I absolutely love them !!! Even John is excited, he was talking about how I should frame them and where I can hang it in the house last night !!

Thank you soooooo much again, I finally have bridal pictures that I am proud of showing everyone !!!
Talk to you soon,




I’ve been going through the first two juxtaposition shoots in anticipation of doing two more in the next two days… came across these lovely images I really love a lot.

Thanks to my “Real Wedding” recent brides Lindsey and Tiffany for introducing me to Worcester MA and Boston Sand and Gravel! We had quite a few adventures and got a huge range of looks from the sessions, ranging from eccentric to classically beautiful.


I’m working on scheduling girls for the bridals project right now, which is tough with my wedding, boudoir photography, and travel schedules… but I got the best email a minute ago from one of my girls and this kind of thing makes everything worthwhile:


Oh, Rachel, I’m SO excited.  Meeting you has been so good for me, my soul, my happiness, my relationship (I can’t WAIT to see his face when I surprise him with your [boudoir] album and beautiful artistic photos!!!), my confidence– my LIFE.  You = so awesome, I can’t even begin to tell you.
