Rachel & Mark Reynolds

ABOUT

Well hello there! Let me introduce us! I'm Rachel Reynolds, lead photographer & CEO of Rachel & Mark Photography & Films. Mark is my husband, my right-hand man, my 2nd shooter and my partner.

I started my photography business in 2014 as Rachel Fawn Photo, taking it full-time in 2017 and shooting 48 weddings my first full-time year. I've now photographed over 200 weddings as lead. In college I was inspired by photographers Richard Avedon, Ansel Adams, Steve McCurry, Mercedes Jelinek, Ian Ruhter, and my photography professor, Nancy DiBenedetto.

Before all that, I picked up my first camera in 1995 - a Canon 35mm film point-and-shoot. I printed and kept albums all throughout my childhood and teenage years, always passionate about turning authentic moments into art.

I was a widow with two kids when I met Mark in 2020. He had experienced life as well  - divorced with two kids. Maybe it was the pandemic, fate, destiny or a combination of all three, but when we finally got to see each other again in April 2021, we became inseparable. We eloped, he became my official 2nd photographer, and Rachel & Mark Photography was born. We've now captured over 65 weddings together.

In 2022 we started doing hybrid photo & video coverage, adding "& Films" to the name. We've now created over 15 weddings films, and we just absolutely love being able to tell each couple's story with both images & video, preserving this incredible day with gorgeous and authentic photographs as well as keeping it alive through films.
