Madly in Love
Timeless, Classic, Romantic Images that you will cherish for years to come
A fine art wedding photographer based in Virginia and traveling across the globe to capture the love stories of couples who value their love, timeless art, beauty in details, and celebrating the best day of their lives with the people who matter most to them.
I have captured the wedding days of dozens of couples who want to put a stop on the clock of their wedding day and relive it forever. From wineries throughout Virginia, historic estates, and destinations all over, there is no distance that could keep me from doing what I love- telling your story.

"Rachael was everything that we needed in a wedding photographer and more! I absolutely love her editing style and the entire process of working with her was a breeze. She captured our day perfectly and also delivered our pictures much quicker than I anticipated. I highly recommend Rachael. "
"Rachael was a DREAM to work with!!! She took our engagement and wedding photos and they came out absolutely beautiful, with the light and airy style I wanted. She was so fun to work with, put us at ease, very responsive in her messages/texts and made us truly feel important and prioritized the entire time. We HIGHLY recommend her for any event but especially engagement/weddings!!!"
"We are so blessed to have had Rachael be the photographer at our wedding. She was so responsive and super fun to work with. We will be forever grateful for the beautiful images Rachael captured of our special day!"
"Rachael traveled to Hilton Head to do our engagement pictures and my family’s family pictures which was SO awesome and they all turned out incredible. She made Tim and I feel so comfortable during the shoot and it was so much fun. We had a blast and the pictures were wonderful. I’m so happy we found Rachael and that she came to take our pictures"
"Highly recommend Rachael Mattio Photography for your wedding! She was a total joy to work with, very down to earth but highly professional at the same time! Ten outta ten!"
"Rachael loves what she’s does, that’s important. The difference between Rachael and other photographers is that she puts love into her work and her clients. The photos are obviously stunning, but working with her is even better. She will be my photographer for the rest of my life."
"Words don’t even come close to how great it was to work with Rachael! She was instantly a great fit for us. We reached out about doing our engagement photos in Walt Disney World- the Boardwalk Resort. Rachael was super responsive the entire planning process and really listened to what our preferences were and made sure we were comfortable the entire time. She was always prepared and ready to answer any questions I threw her way. When she sent over our photos I knew we made a great decision by working with her. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Everyone should consider working with her, you will not be disappointed!"
"We had a wonderful experience working with Rachael for our engagement photos. She helped us choose a location and time of day that would work in our favor for lighting. She has such a warm and bubbly personality which makes her very easy to work with and enjoyable to be around. During our session, Rachael posed us in so many different ways. I had saved several poses to my Pinterest board ahead of our session but I didn’t even need them because she already had so many poses in her wheelhouse. She delivered a beautiful set of sneak peaks very quickly, and then delivered the rest of the gallery on time. We couldn’t be happier with the way our pictures turned out and our family and friends love them too. We can’t wait to work with Rachael again!"
