Film photography will always have our hearts. When we approach our sessions, our goal is to capture breathtaking, timeless, and creative images that you will love and cherish forever. Crafting a unique experience for each of our couples with honest and creative direction is key to capturing photographs that tell a story, pull you in, and never let go. 

our philosophy

Our wedding collections include two photographers, an engagement session, online gallery, fully edited images shot on digital and film, and full image rights. We photograph engagement sessions with a fine art approach entirely on film, giving you the ultimate timeless and romantic style. On your wedding day, we shoot a mixture of both film and digital to maximize coverage of important moments. Connecting with our couples and clients is so important to us, and we would love to hear more about you, so be sure to give as much information as you can when filling out the contact form.

Y'all.... it has been one year since our wedding and I still tear up every time I look through our photos. I cherish every single picture we have, EVERY SINGLE ONE. I was the first of my trio of best friends to get married. That means lots and lots of time on Pinterest trying to figure this whole wedding planning thing out. After hours of researching photographers, I kept coming back to Josh & Rachel Best! My husband Nils and I adored the use of light in their photographs!!! I bookmarked their blog right next to my Southern Weddings and Knot tabs and there was no turning back. Nils and I loved getting to know Josh & Rachel during our engagement shoot; they are professional and so down to earth! My husband is a little camera shy so it really helped that they were willing to act out the poses as an example for us (not all photographers can show you how to kiss!). When it came to our wedding day, I literally had a sigh of relief when they walking in because just knowing they were there eased all my nerves. I knew even if the skies poured and the shrimp and grits went dry.. it would all be okay because the Best's pictures would still be amazing. Even our wedding party/family mentioned how comfortable they felt with our photographers compared to other wedding's they had been in! I think this comfort really shined through in our pictures. I was absolutely floored when our little old wedding was published on Style Me Pretty! I still don't know how exactly we came across this sweet photographer couple from across the state....but it was the luckiest thing that could've happened and best wedding decision we made! Needless my two best friend's booked Josh & Rachel immediately after rings were on their fingers and now Nils & I get to see Josh & Rachel Best at two more weddings!

Josh and Rachel are just the kindest people and I’m lucky enough to call them friends. Making the decision to have them as my wedding photographers was easy it was making sure they were available for the wedding!! Photography was our top priority for wedding vendors and I know that when the wedding is all said and done and I’m married to my love those photos are going to be the perfect reminder of our perfect day. When I received our photo’s I was in awe, literally, I loved every single photo and they are now the main focal point in our home. I couldn’t have imagine spending the day with any other wedding photographers. Josh and Rachel make the perfect team from their attention to detail, their creativeness, and just to their relaxed and easy going personalities. They captured our wedding far better than we ever could’ve imagined. We absolutely loved having them be apart of our wedding and we now have beautiful wedding photos that will last us forever.

We love Josh and Rachel. We first did our engagement session with them and our fur child and we had a few location hiccups (no fault to them) but we managed to find a great last minute location for pictures. And the pictures came out AMAZING! Not only are they talented photographers but are a great couple. They took wonderful candid pictures during our wedding and gave great advice during portraits and group pictures. My husband isnt photogenic but he felt and looked comfortable in all our pictures. The pictures are breath-taking and are simply worth the investment. Definitely would contact them for anniversary pictures and pregnancy pictures.

We are strong advocates for sharing photos! We love to have our couples share images on any social media outlet. We also make a valiant effort to submit most of our work to national publications.

What are the restrictions for sharing photos online or for publication? 

Engagement sessions are delivered in roughly 2 weeks and weddings approx. 8-10 weeks. We always send previews out much sooner, so you can get a glimpse of what's to come!

How long after the session do we get to see the photos?

Our wedding collections include two photographers, an engagement session, online gallery, fully edited images shot on digital and film, and full image rights.

What exactly is included in your packages?

Yes we do! It's called "Hybrid." A perfect blend of film and digital. Engagement sessions are captured entirely on film, and weddings are a mixture of both.

Do you shoot both digital and film?
