From the moment I talked with Kaitlyn for the first time I new we'd be fast friends. She is a bright light and always has a smile on her face! We connected for their engagement photos at "Pickens Nose" hiking spot in North Carolina, and then Gabe and I worked together on their wedding day at Juliette Chapel. It's a lovely venue nestled in the mountains of North Georgia. Scenic views surround this quaint venue, and Kaitlyn & Chris spent their wedding day with their closest friends and family!

Congratulations Kaitlyn & Chris! I'm so excited to have been able to share your day with you. It was *so* much fun to celebrate with you and capture your love.

Kaitlyn's five-star review via Google: "An absolute dream! Rachel and her team were everything I imagined and more as our wedding photographers. From our first inquiry to our final photo gallery delivery she was professional, kind, and overwhelmingly talented. We first met her in person at our engagement session where she captured the most beautiful photos of me and my fiancé. She was willing to travel to the shoot location and open to all of our ideas and wishes! Us (and our family and friends) were blown away by our engagement photos and immediately got excited for our wedding photos. We knew that they would be just as wonderful. Rachel took time, even in the midst of the pandemic, to meet face to face (via FaceTime of course) to plan out our wedding day-of timeline to ensure that we got all the shots we desired, and to make sure that she and her team were able to get all the info from us that they needed to make their time with us successful as well. Your photographers cannot do their job unless they know the ins and outs of your day, and that's your responsibility to give it to them! They did a great job at making sure they had all the info they needed. Rachel had so much insight and advice when it came to planning how we wanted our day to pan out and it turned out absolutely perfectly. All of our other vendors were so impressed with her timeline, and it helped our day run seamlessly. The day of came and went in a flash, but it went off without a hitch! Rachel and her team stayed cool, calm, and collected the entire day regardless of anything else going on. She gave me the confidence I needed all day knowing that the day was going wonderfully and that it was all about my husband, myself, and what we wanted. There were a few times that I got flustered, but Rachel went above and beyond the call of duty to help me through whatever the situation was (including completely repining my hair decoration that went very crooked 30 mins after having my hair done - talk about panic!) Our wedding day was without a doubt the best day of our lives, and I am so thankful for the part that Papillon Visuals played in that. I tell everyone that our wedding photos take me back to that exact moment that they were taken because of how accurately and beautifully they captured our day. I will treasure our breathtaking wedding photos forever. Thank you, Rachel, for your role in making our wedding day the best day of our lives!"
