Hello !

My name is Rachel and I am Rachel Elizabeth Photography – A photographer specialising in Weddings. I am based in Ringwood, Hampshire. Which is just on the edge of the beautiful New Forest but close enough to the sandy beaches of Bournemouth! I enjoy sunny bike rides, weight-lifting at the gym, good food (especially puddings – I have a massive sweet-tooth). I also love drinking iced lattes and crazy teas (I have a whole cupboard of different teas!). I’m always planning a new adventure either with my partner Chris (my silver fox!) or with our fantastic group of friends! A rule I live by is to laugh everyday, I am definitely a ‘glass is half full’ type of person!

About Dorset Hampshire Female Wedding Photographer

Ever since I was a little girl I have always been fascinating by weddings. Like many other little girls I used to dream of what a magical day it would be! I am never happier than when I am part of such a special day. Capturing all the beautiful details, love and happiness of wonderful people! Wedding days are my favourite of all days!

  • Rachel is an amazing photographer! She captured our wedding day perfectly and has supplied us with so many beautiful photos it will be difficult to chose the ones we want to put on our wall! On the day Rachel was friendly and clam and fitted right in that you didn’t notice she was there snapping away. When doing the group and couple shots Rachel gave good directions to get the great shots. Thank you again, I can’t recommend your work highly enough!

  • Thank you Rachel for being there for us both today, especially for being with the love of my life this morning. Your gentle and calm presence is reassuring in such a pressurised scenario. Jo and I are so happy that you were there for us. The whole day has been a blur and an emotional roller coaster and we are both excited in due course to see your photos, and remember such an amazingly precious and special time. I could never recommend Rachel Elizabeth Photography enough to anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer. I hope that Jo and I shall be able to stay in contact with you Rachel in the future. Thank you so very much. X

  • Rachel did an amazing job capturing every moment of our wedding perfectly! She was friendly, easy to talk to, full of creative ideas, and extremely professional.

    During the ceremony she snuck around in near-cat like silence capturing loads of great candid photos of us and our guests which were a joy to see afterwards as the whole service was a bit of a blur for me! She worked extremely hard all day, I barely saw her sit down!

    Many of our friends and family commented on how professional, friendly and quick she was. I can definitely vouch for her efficiency; at previous weddings I’ve been too it’s felt like the bride and groom are posing for hours while the photographer lines everyone up and adjusts their camera multiple times – just for a few group – but Rachel quickly (but not rushed way) got the required shots for the group photos we’d planned in advance, so we could get on with enjoying ourselves and relaxing into the evening!

    Our whole day was very relaxed and Rachel definitely helped with that! As for the photos, they are everything we had hoped for, all absolutely brilliant!! With a consistently excellent quality and feel to them – presented to us in a beautiful wooden box, a real treasure to keep forever! Thanks Rach, you rock!!

Approach / Style

My style is very relaxed and natural, with minimal posing. This also helps people relax infront of me and my camera. Allowing me to capture beautiful real life moments. Documentary photography is a term often used for my style – documenting and telling your story through my images.

If you like the sound of my style, then please send me a message on my contact page to see if I am available.

Then we can arrange to meet up over a coffee (or glass of wine!). And have a good natter about your plans!

We booked Rachel for our wedding back in June and from start to end she was absolutely faultless! She was professional and flexible throughout the whole process and kept things clear and easy to understand for us paperwork and planning wise. On the day there was no usual bossy photographer shouting orders at the guests, Instead Rachel was always one step ahead of the game, where she needed to be, catching all the right shots without anyone feeling ‘put out’ or rushed. A few people even commented “She is everywhere at once that photographer”

The whole day I felt relaxed and safe in the knowledge that Rachel had it all under control and upon receiving my photographs back I can assure you that this was the case. My images came in a beautiful box, with a little wooden USB stick all wrapped up; Rachel even went through the effort of printing us out a few prints to keep!

There is no doubt at all that Rachel is dedicated & passionate about her work and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

Rachel is wonderful! I run a small business and I have booked her to do all my product photography on an ongoing basis. She has a beautiful style that works perfectly alongside my brand, and she delivers incredible images that help so much in creating the vital first impressionfor online shoppers. She’s incrediblyprofessional, creative and full of suggestions, and an absolute pleasure to work with. I can highly recommend her.

Our cake smash pictures of our daughter when she turned one were amazing!! We were so pleased with how relaxed Rachel made us all feel. We’ve since used her for a lovely Christmas shoot of all three of our children and now looking forward to our outdoors Autumnal shoot. I would highly recommend this very talented young lady!

Rachel did a bump shoot for me when I was 7 months pregnant. The photos she produced were lovely & have given me a beautiful & lasting memory of my pregnancy. I really enjoyed the shoot, normally I’m not a fan of being photographed, but Rachel was professional & she made me feel so comfortable. Rachel has an impeccable eye for detail & clearly strives to take striking, creative images.
I would definitely recommend Rachel & would love to work with her again in the future.

I honestly can’t recommend Rachel enough. It was the quality and warmth created by her photos that made us want her to be the one to capture our special day. She’s wonderful, calm, funny photographer who fits in like a family member, allowing her to capture natural and loving moments without anything feeling too staged. Our favourites were the candid moments that we would have otherwise missed but we’re completely in love with every single photo. Thank you so much again!
