Hi there, Bweddings couples!

Congrats on finding Barbara!

She is a gem to work with, and truly personalizes the wedding experience. She will remember those little details that you mention to her and make you feel like family in a truly special way!


My name is Rachel Mandel, and I am the owner and lead photographer at Mandelette Photography.

A bit about my business: I started photography back in 2011, associate shooting for wonderful people in the industry, and gaining a world of experience. I then went on to open Mandelette in 2017, where I photographed my first wedding solo on the crown of the Tribune Tower.

I immediately fell in love with this industry, my couples, and operating a business. Since then, I have won the Couples Choice Award for four years in a row, and have been published internationally.

I have been able to blend my love for making others happy with creating beautiful imagery, and have since shot a plethora of weddings at the top Chicago venues.


Working at such esteemed venues, I thrive on creating a bright, fine-art, ethereal look in my imagery through utilizing natural light to my advantage and being a pro at indoor flash! No matter the locale, no matter your race, gender identity, body size, or background, I aim to make you GLOW with radiance in your images so that you see yourself as fine art.

There is no cheesy posing, and everything looks very natural due to our editorial meets documentary shooting style, and bright, properly exposed editing style.

I would absolutely love to hear from you so we can chat all about your wedding vision! Be it a backyard affair, an industrial venue, or just letting the cityscape of Chicago tell your love story, I've got you covered.

Click here to reach out, so that we can bring your true comfort, butterflies, and positive emotions all to live on camera. I can't wait to hear from you!
