About Rachel Reeve Photography

I love weddings. All types of weddings from vintage or quirky, to weddings in period properties or open fields. I also consider myself the most fortunate guest on the day, being lucky enough to be present from the very start of the day, capturing events as they unfold & making memories for a lifetime.
My name is Rachèl and I am based in Colchester, however I can never say no to a wedding and travel all over the UK to be with my couples.
I offer both half and full day packages, and both include my photography fee, a personalised USB key with all edited images from you day & a private online gallery for you to re-live your day and share with whom ever you please.
Wedding Albums are available too. They are handmade and printed in the UK by a fabulous company, Folio Albums, and I have a number of display albums which I would be happy to show you if this is something you would be interested in. 
My website is the best place to take get a sense of my style, which is candid and repotage, but I still pose my couples when necessaary. Please do take a look and if you find yourself wanting to get in touch then please just hit the Contact Me page.

  • "Sarah & Phil - Leez Priory - A dream to work with"
    Sarah on 30 January 2018

    I cannot recommend Rachel highly enough as choice of photographer for your up and coming nuptials. She is highly organised and dependable. Some of our guests were not always easy to deal with especially when there's free booze flowing however Rachel has a fantastic way and approach with people which makes them feel at ease and also not too put out! Neither Phil or myself are technical however we trusted Rachel to try various different shots / angles which at the time you think are a little strange (heads in tree canopy's etc) however the end result was astonishing and something out of this world! Thank you Rachel for capturing our special day beyond our wildest expectations! S&P xx

    Nancy on 11 January 2018

    Wow what a photographer. Rachel is such a lovely person and so passionate about what she does and it shows through in her photos. She was just what we needed on our wedding day and so many of our guests couldn’t compliment her enough. I highly recommend Rachel! She is wonderful. X

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

I do work alone, and have been described as Ninja-like, but on occasion where two photographers are needed my husband [who is a professional, award winning photographer in his own right - Chris Reeve Photographer] becomes my second shooter or a good friend of mine, who is a second shooter for weddings, joins me for the day.

In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?

It would be my husband in the first instance and failing that I am lucky to know several Wedding Photographers and would ask them to step in if the worst case scenario happened.

How do you work?

I like to treat my couples as family. Your day is as important to me as it is to you & I like to think this is reflected in the level of service and quality of work that you receive from me.
