    We got our photographs last weekend! I'd like thank Rachel and Lucy for all your hard work on our wedding, the photographs look absolutely lovely, and the processing was done so quickly. I was surprised the DVD came in a pretty little case! I'll definitely recommend Starr Photography to others looking for a professional photographer - the entire experience has been pleasant and the staff have been great to work with.

    Rach took the stress of our international wedding, she had been to our wedding location before and knew the best spots to capture our special day. All our guests told me of how before the bridesmaids got down to the beach side ceremony Rach spent time running up and down the beach taking photos of the boys. Rach stuck round the next day so we could do our Trash The Dress Photo Shoot- where Rach her self jumped in the water to continue taking photos. Rach took amazing photos and everyone we have shown our wedding photos to have all commented saying that they should be in a wedding magazine and we agree. I look forward to the day when i can call up Rach and ask her to do our family portraits ( but that wont be for a while) I recommend her without hesitation! Thank you Rach.

    We have known Rachel for over six years and we love the family photos she has taken each year! She captured the true character of each family member and worked easily and comfortably with our girls who adore her! Definitely recommend her and that reminds me, we need to book her again this year!

    We've been lucky enough to have Rachel photograph our wedding and newborn baby and have been extremely happy with the photos. Rachel is a natural - talented, creative and totally professional. Thankyou Rachel, you are amazing xxx

    From the very beginning I could not have asked more from Rachel at Starr Photography. Having flicked through dozens of websites looking for the perfect photographer, it was so refreshing to find a website that was well producer, easy to use and, more importantly, had incredible examples of the work the team does. There was not a photo I didn't love on her website. With just a few emails and one meeting she nailed our personalities and what we wanted from the photos. She slipped seamlessly into our wedding party and this allowed Rachel to capture beautiful, natural photos on our special day! We could not have asked for any more and friends have already booked Starr Photography to capture their weddings!

    We couldn't recommend Rachel highly enough. It takes time for us to make a decision and we had met quiet a few photographers for our wedding before Rachel was recommended to us. As soon as we met her we knew she was the right one. She is so lovely, positive, creative and fitted right in with our small group of 32! The photos are amazing and we treasure them. Fantastic :-)

    Couldn't recommend Rachel highly enough. I am the type of person that spends weeks making decisions and we met quiet a few photographers for our wedding before Rachel was recommended by a friend. When i met her though i knew straight away she was the right one. She was just perfect - really creative, happy, positive and fitted right in to our small group of 32 guests! Really understood what we wanted and the photos are suberb. Wish we had an occasion to have her round again :-)

    Rachel took beautiful photos at our wedding. The photos are amazing and many of our friends have also commented so. We couldn't recommend Rachel more highly as the best photographer to capture your special day.

    We cannot speak highly enough of Rachel and the brilliant job she did of photographing our wedding day. We found her to be extremely friendly and professional. She took time to find out what sort of pictures/techniques we wanted so that the photos reflected our personalities and taste. She was punctual and captured the ceremony beautifully whilst not standing out or being in the way. Her suggestions of locations for photos after the church service were spot on. The guests at the reception thought she was extremely friendly and she captured everyone there. The photos are fabulous and serve as a great reminder of the day. We LOVE our wedding album and the layouts as well as the photos she chose to include in it (every photo was also printed and put in a box regardless of whether it made the album cut). The photos from the engagement shoot were just as lovely. We also absolutely love the film footage of the day taken by her colleague. We were given the whole day's footage plus a short edited dvd of highlights put to some of the music used on the day. This dvd was played later at our 2nd reception in London and everyone thoroughly enjoyed that it captured the spirit of the wedding day so well and yet was not too long. Overall we think Rachel is a delight and highly recommend her to both capture special events and record family memories. We have had friends use her as a result of our wedding. She definitely chose the right profession through which to display her talents and creativity.

    Rachel shot our wedding day and was fantastic - it was like having a friend shoot the day but without having a friend miss out on all the fun!

    Rachel did a beautiful job with photographing our wedding. She listened to what we wanted, got some fantastic shots we love and delivered her services with a professionalism, precision and a respect you only see in someone who truly cares. If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding, I wouldn't risk looking elsewhere!

    Rachel is an absolute rock star - 100% passion and talent! She was the perfect photographer for our wedding day, with photos so beautiful our wedding was even published in a magazine! Her shots are creative and beautiful, while still maintaining sensitivity and capturing each of the special moments throughout the day. We would recommend her to anyone - and have! Talented, creative, engaged yet relaxed, she's the perfect addition to any wedding day. We'll be coming back to her for Family Portraits some day!

    I was lucky enough to be apart of my sister-in-laws wedding party and Rachel was our photographer. She was brilliant! Very polite, prompt and unobtrusive. Her photos were magical and really captured the romance of the day. If I were able to - I would book her for my wedding.

    We're from Germany and had our wedding in August 2012 at the shores of Kiribilly during our vacation in Australia. It was a most memorable experiance, and thanks to Rachel / Starr Photography it is documented with wonderful pictures. Rachel did a fine and very creative job and is a lovely person. We'd recommend her without hesitation! Best, Mark + Tina

    Rachel has been taking our family portraits for a few years now, and each time has captured unique 'moments' that are beautiful, spontaneous, and creative. We love her patience, humour, and professionalism. Above all she really cares about the end result, making sure we have exactly what we want from the shoot, and suprising us with more.

    We were so grateful to have Starr Photography shoot our wedding. They captured all the special moments that on the day went so fast for us, when we got the photos we were able to sit back and take it all in. This is a priceless keepsake that we didnt really think about when planning our day, but we are soooo happy they were there! Their attention to the detail that we spent much time preparing was amazing, they really saw all the things that were important to us, and many things that we didnt even get a chance to see ourselves! Rachel and Sarah were a joy to have around on the day and were able to gather our large family and friends into some of the best photos that weve ever had together! I would recommend Starr Photography to anyone, they ticked every box for us and so much more. Fran and Rhys

    Really great team, very artistic and fun. LOVED our family portrait session, such a great memory, as well as the fabulous images which we will cherish forever. Already planning next shoot for a years time. Love the freedom of owning all the images. Rachel's a lovely girl, great experience!

    Yes, 100% agree with the other reviews here. We had Sarah for our wedding, I could not imagine anyone more perfect for our wedding style. She was energetic, enthusiastic, respectful and so creative. The whole family are in love with her, she added so much to our wedding day memories in her imagery as well as her presence. Rachel helped with all the planning and styling. Absolutely check this studio out.

    We shopped and shopped and shopped around, looking for a photographer that was different and not ridiculously expensive. We found Rachel and this crew by far head and shoulders above others in the same price range for skill, professionalism and artistic ability. LOVE our images, and are so grateful we found their studio. Referring to our engaged buddies and colleagues at every opportunity. Glad we can give them a shout out here.

    We spent a lot of time finding the photographer with a broad spectrum of styles. All photographers seem to be soley candid or soley posed. We were so so so happy with our choice Rachel and Sarah we have the most amazing candids, artistic landscapes and classical imagery. We really love that their packages gave us all our images on disc, none of our friends had this with their other wedding photographers, we have so many memories of everyone at the wedding, we seriously can't recommend this team enough.... Pick them! :)

    Testimonials Submitted by the photographer

    Cathie and Ken, Wedding couple- Pymble Golf Club

    “Dear Rachel, Wow, what can we say. We knew we had picked the right person when we felt your enthusiasm at the beginning but we didn’t understand how much time and effort you would put into our special day, to make the only thing we can hold onto so remarkable. You were great with us, so patient and creative… You put together an album that we could not only relate to but constantly brought out symbols of our love for each other and the people around us. Very intuitive. Thank you for all your hard work. We will certainly recommend your talents to everyone, Take care, Cathie and Ken”

    Julie and Michael, Wedding couple- Springfield House

    "Rachel was the natural choice as our photographer for our wedding, since she had photographed many of our family & friends' weddings; we were so excited and happy to be working with her on our big day, and she exceeded our expectations - professional, warm, unobtrusive and exactly what we were hoping for with our pictures- we had an amazing time on the wedding shoot, our bridal party and family members were all captured perfectly for us to remember how our day went. A big thank you to Rose, Rachel's assistant, who is to be commended for her quiet and diligent manner. We would recommend Rachel from Starr Photography to absolutely anyone who is after the perfect memories of their Wedding day. Once again, thank you so much Rachel for your brilliant efforts!!"

    Brooke, George, Max and Ruby., Family portrait

    Dearest Rachel, Words cannot describe the joy we had when we seen the family photo's. I knew they would be good, but they blew us away. You are truly amazing at what you do. We are so lucky to have found you. Our family will treasure the moments you have captured for lifetimes to come. Your warm relaxed nature made the day quite literally a walk in the park. You managed to capture our families love, joy and happiness beautifully. We cannot thank you enough for your time and efforts, and we look forward to doing it all again in a few years time. The only difficult thing is figuring out which photo's to print! They are all so good, might need a little more time, ill get back to you soon. Thank you again Rachel
