My husband and I were extremely happy with our wedding photos! All of our family and friends loved them. We talked to several other photographers before choosing Rayna. Rayna provided us with an estimate that reflected how much time she would actually need to document our special day. She was spot on! Since we had a very small wedding, we were pleased that we didn’t have to pay for unnecessary extra time. Even after we received our photos from her, she was prompt and responsive to any questions I had.

Rayna is such an incredible talent, we were so lucky to have her for our big day! From the beginning she was extremely responsive and helpful recommending a few other vendors. Her adventurous nature was exactly what we needed, and her prices were well within our budget. Thank you so much Rayna!

Rayna is a fantastic photographer and a great friend.
We have known her for many years as a fellow Pittsburgh-based climber before she went off to Colorado, and she was the only person invited twice to our wedding: once as a guest and once as a photographer.
She managed both duties flawlessly: she made sure to get all the key wedding shots, and was of course great fun as a guest.She’s a very professional photographer: she was excellent with the family session mayhem, had tons of ideas for cool shots (and made sure we got ours as well), and was willing to work with what we were comfortable with.
The best part was the day after our celebration; my wife and I went rock climbing in our wedding attire and Rayna took some of the coolest photos of us out there.
Since she’s an excellent climber as well as photographer we knew she could take care of herself while getting some really memorable shots from hard-to-reach places.
The final photos came out perfectly and we couldn’t be happier.

If I could recommend Rayna with an even higher status, I would. She was EXCELLENT from start to finish. I was nervous about hiring an out of state photographer for a number of reasons. I found her studio online and was immediately impressed with her style and her eye. I completed the online questionnaire and explained that we just wanted our ceremony captured and a handful of photos of us and our family afterward (we’re pretty simplistic and easy going). I spoke to Rayna a few times on the phone and she eased my nerves about her plans and told me all about the location (I hadn’t been there yet either . . . we did everything online). Once I met her (at the ceremony), she walked us through the plan for her and her partner, gave us some brief instructions, and then she disappeared behind the lens. The pictures they captured absolutely blew us away. Everyone we have shown them too agree and often compliment that they’re they most beautiful wedding photos they’ve ever seen. After the wedding, Rayna uploaded some sneak peek photos to her blog super quickly which was exciting. We had our edited link and flash drive faster than initially promised. It has been wonderful to work with Rayna and I would recommend her to everyone. She is amazing and passionate at what she does and is easy to work with – the perfect combination. She definitely captured our wedding day perfectly! So HAPPY!

Rayna was the perfect choice for our engagement session and wedding day! She and her assistant have great, easy-going personalities and the ability to make camera shy future husbands feel at ease. She has that special “artistic eye” I was looking for to be able to capture those perfect shots. When I look back at my wedding photos, I can see pure bliss and joy and am so glad she never missed a beat.

Rayna and her second photographer worked seamlessly throughout our wedding ceremony and reception and managed to capture moments we didn’t even get to experience that day. They were extremely professional and fun, and the photos turned out even better than we could have imagined! I highly recommend Rayna McGinnis for wedding photography

Rayna is by far the best photographer and we absolutely loved all of the photos, every one of them felt so natural and we loved that we weren’t forced into painfully awkward wedding poses for an hour! Rayna and her second photographer teamed up to get all of the shots from every angle to make sure that every moment was captured and not a thing was missed! We were blown away when we saw the pictures from our wedding and couldn’t have asked for anything more amazing!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Rayna and her second photographer! Our special day was so enjoyable and fun and we will always be able to remember it every time we look at our pictures.

Rayna was extremely easy to work with and provided wonderful pictures for a great value. I was a little nervous because she had never shot a wedding at our venue, but our photos are beautiful and I received several compliments from wedding guests on the quality of the shots.

Rayna was amazing! We loved our pictures and will recommend her to anyone! She is so creative and has such a unique way of taking photos! I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed having her take photos at our wedding!

Rayna is a great photographer who is passionate about her work, very talented at what she does, an excellent communicator and someone who is friendly and very easy to work with! She did an amazing job on both my and my husband’s engagement and wedding photos. She only provides the best quality of her work possible which is something we really appreciated. And the photos she takes are beyond stunning! She’s really good at capturing personalities and picking scenery that brings a lot of life to each picture taken. She did a great job making us comfortable and helping us have fun while taking pictures. Another thing I really appreciated is how often she kept in touch with me especially before the wedding, asking how things were going and helping me get things settled for the big day. That made things much less stressful for me. Finally I appreciated her getting both the engagement and wedding photos to my husband and I in a timely manner. The wedding photos DVD she gave us was beyond stunning! I loved how she had both the case and disc decorated with some of our photos. I highly recommend Rayna McGinnis Wedding Photography not only for engagement sessions and/or weddings but for any kind of portrait session! My husband and I are truly thankful we chose her to be our photographer, it was the perfect choice! Her prices are reasonable, she’s fun and easy to work with, and the quality of her work is in my opinion the best out there.

We are very pleased with the wedding pictures and how they turned out. Rayna really takes the time to get to know you; everyone at the wedding party was very impressed with her professionalism. Plus we were so surprised with how quickly we received the wedding pictures.

My wife and I cannot say enough about Rayna McGinnis’ work. She is extremely talented and professional. We’ve received several compliments on our wedding pictures and was even asked to have them published on a local wedding blog; all of this is due to Rayna’s efforts. If you are looking to hire a professional photographer, make Rayna your first call.
