hello, lovely

I'm Rachel ...

IT'S SO GREAT TO MEET YOU!

My approach to photographing your day is laid back, non-intrusive and is ideally based on friendship and trust between the three of us.

MORE

my philosophy is simple ...

I like to develop a friendship prior to photographing your day, as I truly believe that fostering a genuine and authentic relationship will help me create the best and most beautiful images for you.

After all, the most important part of your wedding is spending quality time with your spouse - not worrying about all of the moving pieces (including photography!).

AND YOU?

You prioritize organic and romantic images, natural light, and want to develop a relationship with your photographer.

I love film, vintage black and white photographs, four legged friends and there isn't a 90s R&B tune that I can't name in less than four notes. 

My muse is my 2 year old daughter.

I am inspired by good music, the charm of the South (here's looking at you, Charleston), historical spaces and telling stories through photography. I am born and raised in the Philadelphia area, and have a degree from the University of Pennsylvania in fine arts and film. When I'm not photographing, you can find me enjoying time with my husband and little girl, and our gaggle of dogs.

THE EXPERIENCE

KIND WORDS FROM PAST CLIENTS

Her approach was fun and laid back, she was amazing!

Her creativity, energy, passion for her work, eye for the beautiful & unique make her very special and a dream to work with on your wedding day.

"

Rachel was the best choice we made for our wedding and I cannot express enough how wonderful she is!

Her work is breathtaking and it's always fun to shoot with her. Our photos are beautiful and full of light and I love looking at them all!

"

I could write a novel about all the reasons why Rachel is THE best.

Every picture is more beautiful than the next as she is taking in all lighting and other factors at all times- her mind is always working to give you the best picture!

"

Brides need Rachel Pearlman by her side not only as the very important photographer but she will become your friend and one of your saving graces on your big day!

SO INCREDIBLE!!!
A photographer, wedding planner, and friend all in one.

From the moment we first spoke on the phone I had this overall sense of relief and knew she totally saw my vision and "got it".

"

Writing this review is a bit bittersweet because our wedding is now behind us and there is no upcoming event for us to have Rachel photograph, but I am hoping to convince her to shoot every event/family moment we have in the future!
