Rachel Rodgers
Associate Photographer

Rachel Rodgers is a Boston and New York-based wedding photographer. She has been documenting love stories for five years now. Her style is photojournalistic and candid; capturing the romantic, the sappy, the goofy and everything in between. When she’s not photographing couples, you can find her shooting portraits for musicians and families. And two must-knows: She’s definitely not afraid to get down on the dance floor with you and will definitely accept your offer to try your wedding cake.

Grace Brown
Associate Photographer

Raised in Massachusetts but in the NY area for 8 years, Grace brings a photojournalistic eye. Her goal is to tell the story of your wedding day – and your love – through photographs, in an unobtrusive and relaxed way. She will definitely cry at the toasts and her favorite part of the day is hearing your vows to each other. When she’s not photographing, you can usually find me procrastinating working out, wandering Manhattan, and/or making best friends with strangers.

She is an outdoor enthusiast from Southern California that loves traveling the country in her RV.
