I Do Different: Rachel Epperly Media

You’re getting married! Congratulations! You want all the parts of your relationship that made you want to do this wedding thing in the first place – the spontaneity, fun, intimacy, love, compassion – to shine while you celebrate your commitment, your passion, your joy! More than anything, you want to look back and relive the way the day made you feel!

Your wedding is about so much more than the bouquets (although beautiful!) and cake (although delicious, and I definitely want a piece!) – it’s about basking in the glow of the day, taking in the quiet moments, honoring what brought you together in the first place and what continues to fuel your love fire each and every day.

I'm not about posing your way to perfection or only capturing moments in the best light. I believe in wedding films and photos that look and feel like you! I call it elegance with an edge. I’m a queer wedding videographer and photographer who isn’t afraid to get a little weird. I’m a fan of couples who choose their way over tradition. I’m a lover of intimate celebrations, non-traditional spaces, and throwing convention out the window!

An at home exchange of vows followed by a pub crawl through the streets? I’m there! Everyone getting ready together before piling into a limo on the way to a rooftop ceremony? Save me a seat! A last minute elopement on the coast with your two puppies in tow? I’m there and ready for all the slobbery dog kisses.

No matter what your day looks like or how you choose to celebrate your story, I’m ready to capture it authentically and vibrantly – in a way that’s true to you.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

If you're looking for a photographer/filmmaker who…

  • is committed to honestly and authentically capturing your day
  • will capture your wedding as it is and how it feels instead of trying to make it fit a certain mold
  • celebrates all unions and all bodies
  • realizes your wedding isn't about the photography/videography (that's right – it's about you!)
  • prioritizes candids and authenticity over posed moments
  • will lovingly creep around to get the best shots
  • isn't afraid to get a little weird – I'm talking in a tree, in the ocean, whatever it takes to capture the heart of your day

…then we should talk!

"This is unbelievable. I am in tears all over again reliving these memories! You've captured our day so perfectly. I cannot wait to share these for many years to come. Thank, a million times for giving us this gift. You were amazing to work with and we are forever grateful." – Kim & Clayton
