We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience than we had with you, from the first inquiry and throughout it has been fantastic experience. We knew straight away that you had understood what we wanted and everything in the lead up to the wedding was so simple and stress-free, exactly what you need when planning a wedding!

The whole wedding party enjoyed having you there and you read the group fantastically, knowing when we needed direction but happily going along with the flow of the wedding and capturing all the little moments that would have otherwise been forgotten.

We were so happy when we received the photos, they really reflected the day we had and nothing looked (or felt) staged or posed. Thank you for listening to us and giving us exactly what we wanted. We couldn’t recommend you highly enough and we hope we have a reason to have you photograph us again in the future!


We couldn’t have been happier when we found that Rachel was available to photograph our wedding. After seeing her work online, we felt instantly sure that she was the photographer for our big day. Prior to the wedding, we visited the venue together and discussed what we would like. Rachel took all of this on board and had some fantastic ideas which we loved as well. Throughout the entire wedding process, from the initial planning to the day itself, Rachel was brilliant to work with. Normally, we are both a little awkward in front of the camera, but Rachel made us feel at ease – it was actually really fun! The photographs truly capture us, our guests, and the mood from the day- they are so natural. We are thrilled to have such a beautiful collection of photos that we will treasure for the rest of our lives.



After completing a review of our image library it became apparent that whilst blessed with lots of beautiful animal photographs, we were short of good shots featuring our visitors. We found Rachel Hein’s portfolio and were immediately taken with her ability to capture families and couples in a natural setting. Our experience of working with Rachel has been excellent. From the outset, Rachel provided creative ideas and suggestions about shoot locations and is a natural working with people in order to capture the right photograph, especially with young children. She helped make the whole process very straightforward for us and most importantly we are delighted with the resulting photography. It is a well known saying that you should never work with children or animals. Thankfully, Rachel was brave enough to help us work with both, and we sincerely hope to work with her again in the future.

My family and I were incredibly impressed by our experience working with Rachel. She is a talented photographer and skilled people person and she was able to make the four of us feel at ease in front of her camera. Our five-year-old son was not at all comfortable with being photographed and Rachel was incredibly patient with him and gently and skilfully managed to bring him onside. As a result, we have an incredible collection of stunning images which we’ll always treasure.

We found Rachel through a google search for local photographers and after being really impressed with her website and portfolio dropped her a line. Rachel was incredibly helpful on the call and we soon after scheduled in 2 photoshoots at different locations.  She took the brief in her stride and delivered fantastic results for our lifestyle brand. She ‘got it’ and brought exactly what we wanted to life. Very enjoyable and easy to work with, would highly recommend.




We had never booked a family photo session before, but I wanted to have them done while we were visiting family in Edinburgh ( We’re based in Philadelphia)  Rachel is absolutely lovely! She made everyone feel comfortable from the start and was so adaptable.Now we have the proofs and we are so in love. I would absolutely book Rachel again and would recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer in the area! Thank you so much, Rachel, we will treasure these forever.
