From the beginning of the coverage to the end, my focus is to capture all your moments. I organize your gallery into specific events that happened that day and I focus on making your gallery as easy to operate as possible. Below is a list of general categories included in every wedding day album (except for any taken out if requested by the wedding couple) and lists of common photographs for each section of the album. Keep in mind that this is strictly a sample photo list from a general wedding gallery I return. Requests to add specific poses/photographs and remove photographs are always accepted and are unique to your specific wedding. This list gives you a general idea of all the categories and photographs I keep in mind on a wedding day. Let’s look at what’s included in my wedding photo gallery from Rachel Z Photography!

About Rachel Z Photography

I’m a 30-year-old San Francisco-based photographer, activist, tattoo enthusiast, and guardian of 2 lovely rescued birds. I adore doing portrait photography for others, whether that’s indoors or outdoors, covered in flowers and nature or covered in fake blood. My goal with my photography is to empower you by taking the essence of who you are and turning it into works of art. I want to hear what YOUR ideas are and help make them into a reality. I want you to feel powerful. I want you to feel beautiful. I want you to feel confident, because we all deserve that.
