Meet: Judith Rae

I’m passionate about capturing images that illuminate the beauty of life, relationships and love. Ever since I can remember, photography has played an important role in my life, whether it was to relive moments past or to capture moments to come. When I discovered my passion for taking photos, the camera immediately became a vehicle in which I could share the world around me. Telling stories through photography is my heart’s desire.

What brought you to the wedding industry?

A chance encounter, years ago with an amazing photographer brought me to the wedding industry. I have since found that I can combine my love of fine art and photojournalism to create a genuine documentation of a wedding. I’m really fortunate to have such extraordinary clients who are a joy to photograph and genuinely in love. I truly feel honored to capture such an important day in their lives.

What is your favorite moment at a wedding?

I love photographing the bride & groom alone together, there is something so special about capturing these intimate moments filled with joy and their love for one another. Candid moments are a favorite of mine, moments that happen as the day progresses, in between formal portraits when people laugh and interact with each other, the reactions that come from guests and family as they watch the ceremony or enjoy the toasts are all part of what makes your day so much fun for me to photograph. Details are another favorite of mine to capturing the complete lifestyle documentation of your day. My ultimate goal is to tell a visual story of your day through timeless imagery that you can share for generations to come.

What is the best part about your job?

I really enjoy all parts but my absolute favorite is getting to know my couples and then being there to capture their wedding.

Share something that is unique to you and/or your business.

I’m a boutique studio and I take personal interest in getting to know all of my couples. This enables me to capture their day in a unique and intimate way.
