Elegant Storytelling Wedding Photography for couples who desire to feel naturally radiant while having a blast in the process!
The morning activities had filled the room with laughter but the day hadn't felt real till Vanessa's hand gently drifted down the banister, more to steady her heart and mind than her body.
As she made her way outside, Derek was standing waiting... His back was towards her. With a small smile she watched his hands clenched and flexed.
A soft tap on his shoulder, and then it happened. The passion, joy and love written on their faces... their anticipation melted into excitement as they embraced.
Watching their memory in the making filled me joy and endless gratitude at the honor of being allowed to be their Chapel Hill wedding photographer.
I never thought I'd be a wedding photographer but it began when a close friend had seen my work and asked me to capture their wedding day I took the leap. Standing by their side, creating peace of mind, cultivating a comfortable environment for them to just be them and have stunning photos... it was an amazing experience and I fell in love and never looked back!
I love creating editorial storytelling photos for genuine couples who desire to feel fabulous, natural and relaxed while having a blast in the process!

"I have had an incredible experience using Rachel Abi Photography for many of the big moments in my life. She captured my graduation pictures, engagement and my wedding and did an amazing job. Not only is she great at posing you in ways that make you look and feel beautiful but she's also great at capturing the real moments and emotions in her photos. Rachel is great at taking away any awkwardness and making you feel like her friend! That was always my worry when doing photography sessions (me feeling awkward) but she makes it easy to relax and laugh and actually enjoy having your pictures done! I highly recommend her and have greatly enjoyed every session she's done!"
"Rachel is an amazing photographer, but our experience with her was so much more. Everyone was absolutely in love with Rachel, very comfortable continuing to go about their business without feeling rushed or staged. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend her to someone looking for a photographer."
"My husband and I knew that we really liked the work we saw on Rachel's website; but when we got our own wedding photos back, we were truly blown away. Absolutely stunning photography, but so natural and so us! Rachel was a blast to work with and had us and our families laughing and fully enjoying our sessions."
"Picking the person who will document your wedding is a SUPER important decision. With Rachel, it was a no-brainer. Every smile, every kiss, and every meaningful moment was captured with such beauty! Thank you thank you thank you for everything you did to make my day so special!!!!!!"
