Whitney is your gal. Even before we signed a contract she talked with me for an hour on how she would make the entire photography experience fun, easy, and effortless.We just got our engagement album back and I can confidently say she delivered on all aspects. Whitney’s communication skills are impeccable, her knowledge of stunning/adventurous locations cannot be beat, and best of all she made us feel so comfortable!
If you’re seeking a photographer and you’re reading this, the search is over. The work put forth by Whitney was absolutely phenomenal as she went above and beyond in every area. She was very easy to communicate with and made the day flow effortlessly. The morning of the wedding, she pitched a new idea that her and her husband wanted to incorporate during the ceremony and the results were stunning. During the reception, Whitney stepped in multiple times to aid one of the bridesmaids (our coordinator) with the order of events. When we planned our wedding the easiest decision we made was booking Whitney as of photographer. Once again, you will be grateful you booked with WhitneyRae. Whitney, thank you so much!
10/10 would recommend using Whitney as your wedding photographer, she was beyond accommodating with our wedding and the photos are jaw-droppingly amazing. She also brought her husband as a second photographer to catch every candid and authentic moment possible and we couldn't be happier with how the day went and how helpful they both were. Photography is not something you should skimp on and Whitney's delivery and professionalism is top-notch.
Whitney is AMAZING!!!! I literally cannot say enough great things about her and her work. She is kind, sweet, and has such a gift. We booked Whitney through a friend referral for our engagement shoot and wedding. Her work perfectly captured the love we feel. She made us feel at ease and totally comfortable (my fiancé and I had never had professional photos done!). 10/10 recommend Whitney for all your photography needs!!!!!!!!
Whitney is an amazing photographer with an amazing eye. I am not the most comfortable in front of a camera and she made me feel like a queen. She was full of poses, prompts, and sweet ideas to capture my fiancé and I. Whitney is so personable, and we felt so comfortable we hired her to fly out to our wedding in Indiana. A photographer turned life long friend, and I couldn’t be any happier.
We hired Whitney to shoot our July wedding in Park City, UT. She blew us away with the results! She was very organized, professional, and detail oriented. She made many suggestions to honor my mother who passed away, it was very special. I highly recommend Whitney for a wedding, engagement shoot or any other photo opportunities. We have so many amazing pictures from our special day to choose from. It was a fairy tale and the pictures tell the story!
Whitney did a fantastic job for our engagement shoot. Mother Nature was throwing us a curve ball without giving us our dreamy snowy idea. However, Whitney was super quick to come up with an even better site that provided us with some stunning lake backdrops. Being in front of the camera is usually awkward for anyone but Whitney made us laugh and feel comfortable in that awkwardness. The photos turned out gorgeous and I’m still swooning! We can’t wait to have her capture our wedding!
We absolutely love Whitney! She was so helpful through our indecisiveness and awkwardness and created a great atmosphere to ensure we had fun during our engagement shot. Even my fiancé who was dreading the entire day had a great time and as soon as we were done he said "we have to have Whitney at our wedding." That was before we even saw the absolutely stunning photographs she took for us. I can't recommend Whitney enough.
