Rachel Reynolds has a background in Visual & Performing Arts, hailing from California State University, San Marcos. She started photographing on film at 12 years old and started her photography business in 2014 after college. After her first husband (and high school sweetheart) passed away in 2016, with her heart broken open, Rachel took her photography business full-time in 2017. Knowing how fleeting life can be, Rachel has dedicated her professional life to capturing authentic moments & real memories as beautifully as possible for couples & their families to cherish for generations.
Mark Reynolds has a passion for music, as a drummer - but also for capturing emotions & making movies. Mark loves photographing by Rachel's side as her 2nd shooter and/or videographer, helping to tell each Couple's love story.
And of course, these two have a love story of their own. They met just a few months before COVID-19 hit, but were then separated for a year-and-a-half by the pandemic. Reuniting in April 2021, these two wasted no time. They eloped in May 2021 and "Brady Bunched" it with each of their two children (four total). "Rachel Fawn Photo" (as Rachel's business was then called) became "Rachel & Mark Photography & Films". The two have captured over 50 weddings together as a team and enjoy every minute of every wedding together, capturing love, with love.
As Taylor Jackson says, "It’s when you’re being yourself and forget all about the camera. It’s all of those in-between moments. Not planned. Not posed. Just real moments captured in the most beautiful way possible."
