I am a firm believer that natural, happy smiles are the most flattering and that people look and feel their best when they are genuinely comfortable and having a good time. I take a friendly, encouraging, one-on-one, laid back approach to my photo sessions, frequently encouraging clients to even dance to their favorite playlists to help relax during our shoots. In addition to providing a supportive and upbeat atmosphere, I also make sure that my clients are happy with the images throughout the shoot and the retouching process. I genuinely care about my clients and I go the extra mile to deliver beautiful images; check out what some of my clients have been saying about my services (and feel free to click through to see the original sources of the quotes):
"Rachel captured wonderful photos, made the experience fun and comfortable, provided reference to an excellent hair/makeup artist, and gave timely response to all my questions prior and after photos. She then delivered my photos within a week. WOW! I highly recommend Rachel to any of your artistic photographic needs. 6/5 stars!!!" - Michael T.
"I loved shooting with Rachel. She was professional and hardworking while also being really fun and laid back. It was a great shoot, Rachel pulled together an awesome team and we produced some amazing images. She also worked hard to get our beautiful photos published. The images from our shoot were published in Dreamingless Magazine which was really exciting! I can't wait to shoot with Rachel again!" - Alena C.
"We brought Rachel in to take professional product shots for our website and liked her so much that we keep bringing her back to film our company events. She took the time to listen to what we wanted, had fantastic ideas, and then translated that vision into beautiful images. She is friendly, easy to work with and immensely talented - there is a reason we work with her again and again." - Jeremy F.
"On each of our four shoots, Rachel created a vision and executed everything perfectly - from the setting to the makeup, wardrobe, lighting and editing, there was no detail overlooked. As a model, she made me feel extremely comfortable and inspired to create a set of images together that have become the centerpiece of my portfolio. Rachel is not only an ideal creative partner for her technical skills, but she is a genuinely kind and thoughtful person." - Olivia W.
"Working with Rachel was wonderful! She was a great collaborator and offered a nice, clean space in which to create. Rachel was warm, friendly, knowledgable and made me feel comfortable every step of the way. I was so pleased with how our session turned out and would not hesitate to work with her again." - Lorelei B.
"Rachel is AMAZING! We met randomly, and totally clicked, and within a few days she was doing everything she could to understand our project and make a great shoot happen. Rachel captured quality shots that spoke to our goals and did it all with a lot of laughter, and minimal set up / gear etc. I definitely recommend her!" - Ryan E.
"Literally as good as it gets if you want a dedicated photographer who knows what she is doing, will add a gorgeous, stylish, creative eye to your photos, and is just a wonderful person to work with and be around. I don't yelp at all, but I needed to come on to sing the praises of this amazing woman!
My then-boyfriend and I were planning a pretty non-traditional wedding. We were planning an upcoming move across the country, and decided that we would use our going away party as an impromptu wedding ceremony (to avoid all the planning, cost, and headaches associated with a more traditional wedding). WE both hate having our picture taken, and couldn't really see ourselves doing any of the traditional wedding photos, but did want some cool documentation of the party (proof it happened more than anything else). So we were looking for someone in a reasonable price-range, who had a non-traditional/ creative eye, and would capture more of the mood of the event than the details. To me, this sounds like the nightmare of any professional -- "please do something creative and whimsical and non-traditional and don't get my bad side, and I can't tell you exactly what I want but figure it out plz thanks!"
IN STEPS RACHEL, WHO IS AN AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHIC ANGEL. We met at the venue the event was taking place (Shout out Oleana in Cambridge, you are my favorite restaurant/ people/ wedding venue ever!), and she promptly gave me a hug, listened to my word vomit of what we were thinking without even a single batted eye of judgement, gave me a ton of insight and recommendations on lighting, how she would approach the evening, etc, and then we downed two bottles of wine together and became friends (though the wine was of my doing -- Rachel is nothing but a consummate professional who makes everyone feel like a friend).
The day of the event, Rachel delivered above and beyond. She didn't let on to any of the guests what was going on, played the subtle roll of my new friend expertly, and charmed the PANTS off of my friends and family (I think about 10 different ppl told me she was their favorrite guest). Not to mention that the 200+ photos that she delivered THE NEXT MORNING (seriously, before we were even awake, I had a dropbox invite in my email) were beyond stunning -- artistic, crisp, capturing all the right moments, bringing me and my now-HUSBAND to tears. WE are not a photogenic people, yet I couldn't love these photos more.
So this ramble (can you tell i'm not a regular yelper?) is just to say you could not do better than Rachel. She is a professional, reliable, expert photographer with a truly amazing talent for photography and editing, and just an all around exceptional human being. MORE RACHEL TINES PLZ." - Teresa P.
"Along with the fact that she creates wonderful art, Rachel is a pleasure to work with. She creates a comfortable and professional work environment. I have modeled for her multiple times, and I am always amazed by what she creates. She provides clear direction and respects those who work with her. I would recommend her to anyone who not only wants a great result, but a great experience." - Lauren A.
"Rachel is an extremely talented photographer and has helped develop the branding for my young sneaker company from day one. Her ability to continuously create images of our sneaker line in new and engaging environments has been tremendously valuable. She is an excellent communicator and a true professional. I'd recommend anyone to work with Rachel." - Lane M.
"Rachel was the perfect photographer for our small wedding. I don't even know where to begin to describe how great our experience with her was. She was punctual, she did exactly what she promised and more, and she left us with truly beautiful photographs of our ceremony, family, and friends. She was fun and easy to work with, had no qualms about scrambling over rocks to get a good shot, and got our photos back to us so fast we'd barely gotten over our hangovers from the wedding. All of the digital shots she provided us (conveniently via DropBox) were carefully composed and really captured the essence of a moment or person. Thanks to Rachel's fantastic photos, we're now able to relive our wedding bliss every time we look at them. Rachel, thank you!" - Nick H.
"I would highly recommend working with Rachel. She is professional, easy going, and a pleasure to work with. I immediately felt at ease around her, within a few minutes into our shoot. She returned edited images to me in a fast manner and they were all wonderful. I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again! I admire both her commercial and fine art work." - Regina M.
"Rachel did a fantastic job photographing my fiance’s proposal! The setting was perfect, on a bridge overlooking the Charles River at sunset, and Rachel captured all of the best moments for us. She was very discreet when taking photos which allowed for the most candid expressions. She was also very quick to provide the photos for our review, which was much appreciated as I couldn’t wait to see them! Overall, Rachel is a fantastic photographer and I would highly recommend her :)" - Lisa E.
"Rachel took some pictures at my engagement. The pictures were outstanding, she very quickly sent me copies, that were formatted perfectly. It’s been a real pleasure working with her! I recommend her to everyone for their photo needs!" - Dmitry E.
"Rachel photographed my brother’s engagement - the shots are beautiful and capture the moment perfectly (hands clasped over mouth, sliding on the ring, the first kiss). And the final product was available in less than a week!" - Alice E.
"I've worked with Rachel in a variety of genres within the modeling world, from emotive art nudes to high fashion hair shoots. She is a creative and a professional, and exudes an elegant balance between laid back and offering direction when needed. I've been more than satisfied with the work we have done and the prints I have purchased. I couldn't recommend her more!" - Thea R.
"I used Rachel in 2013 to take our wedding photographs. She was available on short notice and provided a great service and amazing pictures. We used Rachel again this past summer (2015) to come out to our home and take family pictures, again she was wonderful and the pictures turned out beautifully." - Rachel A.
"I am one of the Directors for RAW Artists Boston, a multi faceted artist event in the Boston area. We showcase a variety of artists including hair, make up, fashion, performance, music, visual art, and vendors. One of the things we provide artists that showcase with us is professional head shots, and pictures of their displays, performances, and items at the shows.
Rachel is our lead photographer that oversees the events. She works with an assistant to ensure that our check list of pictures from the shows of all the artists is completed. Rachel Tine is a very professional and creative artist. As one of our employee staff photographers for our art events, she exceeds our requirements and we love how her photos manage to capture the energy in our events. She takes special care to make sure every single photograph is edited properly. Rachel is always punctual on deadlines and very professional. She's also a really great person and makes our artists feel comfortable when shooting their pictures which is very important to us! Overall, I give Rachel's work 100 stars!" - Dayna M.
"Rachel was a second photographer at our wedding, and we mostly anticipated to use the primary photographer's work. But when Rachel delivered the shots (about 2 months earlier than the other guy, by the way), they were so amazing, and full of captured emotion and story, I use them for everything! My website is full of her shots (I run a small sewing boutique), and my anniversary presents typically feature at least one or two shots from her work. Very pleased and highly recommend!" - Zoya D.
"Rachel is great to work with; she's easy-going, professional, and truly has an eye for art. What I particularly enjoyed about shooting with Rachel was that she doesn't take herself too seriously -- she's open to experimentation and not afraid of the unconventional -- she allows the shoot to naturally evolve with the light and surroundings (we shot outdoors).
I highly recommend working with Rachel!" - Kat P.
"Rachel was a pleasure to work with. She arrived on time, with a professional and fun attitude. She worked really well with my 2 young sons, and my cranky husband. Most importantly, she was able to capture my family in such beautiful photographs - I’m having a difficult time deciding which ones to hang in our house!" - Talia Y.
"I had a fantastic experience working with Rachel! And only positive things to say! We talked about what I was looking for and she was able to understand and carry out exactly what I wanted. She has a very artistic eye. Her background in both photography and psychology creates a wonderful blend that was perfect for my goals because she was able to create beautiful art that also captured emotions and the mood of the place. She was able to “get” what I was looking for and just create it on her own...the best shots were the ones in which she candidly went about thinking of good shots vs. being directed. Perhaps she even intuited what I was looking for better than I did. I would choose Rachel Tine Photography again in a heartbeat. Many thanks!!" - Rebecca H.
"Rachel is just wonderful to work with! Fun, professional, and attentive to detail! I highly recommend Rachel to anyone I know that is looking for top quality photography work. Be it documenting your special event or promoting your product or brand as a business owner. I look forward to working with her in the future!" - Jenn A.
"Rachel has been a tremendous asset to my growing business as a Realtor. She helped me with a few photoshoots and knew exactly how to work with me to get the best angles and shots in a professional yet very relaxed way. She is very personable and extremely talented with her camera. She was also able to capture amazing candid photos and I used one for my holiday card which went out to over 200 parties and I got fantastic feedback because of my unique photo. I can't wait to shoot with her again and would highly recommend her services to anyone needing professional photography done right." - Randy H.
