This is a 365 day photo project I am doing called “Many A Moon”. This is the whole month of February. See them all at rebekahfancher.tumblr.com
Oh, man! So I just received the new albums that I will be making available to my clients (included with select wedding packages and sold separately). I am extremely excited to share this with you all.
These fine art albums come in a variety of leathers. You get to pick from over 20 amazing leathers and fabrics to make your album your own. The albums have thick pages (as thick as a quarter) and the album lays completely flat with a light seam. Heavy materials make it durable so it can last for decades. I album shown in this blog post has the “Krumble” leather as the main leather cover and an upgraded “Cabana” leather as the spine (which I’m in love with).
Also, you will see a smaller album (for parents or whomever you want to share them with) which I will be offering in one of my packages. These smaller add-on albums come in lots of three (size 6×6, this cover is “Sandbox”). It is an exact replica of the fine are album. (It’s perfect to carry in your purse, keep at the office, etc…)
I am making these albums available in a range of sizes: 5×7, 8×8, 10×10, 9×12, 12×12, and 12×16. The sample below is a 12×12 square album.
Enjoy! Please contact me with questions or to arrange to see this in person.
I was inspired a few years back to do a photo a day by my mentor, Shelley Paulson, who did a 365 day photo project. I thought, “Ah, that can’t be THAT hard.” haha… well… I was determine to not just take pictures of my cats or my son. (Although I’m sure I will probably have a good 100+ days of photos of my son. haha) I want to look for that perfect shot every day. To map it out, to light an object or subject, to look for composition, to look for the lovely in the mundane. Its been the hardest, most inspiring thing. I’m constantly looking for light, shadows, color, emotion, mood, beauty, etc. and sometimes its just plain bordom. Yet, its extremely inspiring and forces me to be an artist every day and not just when I shoot a wedding or a session. To be able to look back on this year and say “I picked up my camera EVERY day.” Thats going to be amazing. So here are my first 31 days. I can’t say every day was full of amazing things, but I tried. And yes, there are a ton of photos of my son. ;D
I will be posting every day’s photo on my tumblr blog. So if you are tumblr, follow me and send a heart (a Love or Like) occasionally to keep going.
Wishing all my clients, friends and family a Merry Christmas! Enjoy this holiday season and treasure family. Thank you to everyone who made this year fabulous for me, my family and my business! Happy New Year!

Last weekend I had the incredible honor to get to once again learn and shoot with Shelley Paulson who has been my photography mentor the last 4 years. Shelley did a workshop with a few ladies from North/South Carolina that she has mentored for a while. We spent time shooting in peak fall in all kinds of different light/different times of day. We learned poses, we were critiqued, we spent time learning off camera flash (which is a scare for me!) and laughing so hard together. It was seriously an amazing time of learning from Shelley and from each other. Our models were some of my friends Ashley and her boyfriend, Scott. And we also shot photos of my neighbors (who are married already) Josiah and Nicole. We ended our evening by doing a mock reception in a parking lot, playing “Gangnam Style” on our iphone while three cameras and a flash shot us all being ridiculous. It was seriously the best wedding I’ve been to. ;D I seriously didn’t know how to not share so many photos… so bear with me. ;D
This is part two of my girlfriend’s wedding in the Hamptons. Click here for part one. Enjoy!!! ;D
I’ve known Ashley for twelve and half years. Our family visited the Hamptons, and we became close friends with the Webb family. In fact, we do consider them family. Ashley and I have spent a lot of time in the past together. In more recent years, Ashley has lived in Kansas City with her sister, and our lives have been crazy busy. I love the holidays because it brings her and her sisters home to visit their parents.
Our family used to go to the Hamptons to visit a couple times a year. Ashley and I went on mission trips together, we were involved in the same internships and school together for quite a while. Ashley and her sister, Molly, were in my wedding. We have lived together in certain seasons. We have a lot of mutual friends. I love this girl so much. Thank God, her parents moved to the Carolinas a few years ago–I get my “Webb” fix every other week or so. <3
I can’t describe how incredibly happy I am for Ashley and Luke. Luke is one of thirteen kids, and his family was glorious to photograph. Honestly, the Roberts family was literally everywhere throughout the day. I loved it.
A few times during this wedding, I had to step back and detach from my work to see one of my dearest friends whom I’ve prayed for, cheered on, and had so many beautiful moments with, radiate and glow as she walked down the aisle to meet her groom. A couple times I wept. (Thankfully, the camera conveniently hid my tears.)
Ashley decided to get married in her home town in Long Island, NY, in the Hamptons at St. Thomas Chapel. Her reception took place in the back yard of her great Aunt’s house, built around 100 years ago. So incredible. Brandon, Laef and I flew in to document this day. My parents were there as well, and they took care of my baby. (I’ll be doing a personal blog on my trip in the coming weeks, so check it out later.)
If you haven’t ever been to the Hamptons… well… let me just say… wow! I spent so much time in my teen years there and I haven’t been back in around seven or eight years. It’s so incredibly lovely. Everywhere you look there’s eye candy. I just had freak out moments every now and then as we drove around the villages–the beaches, the PIZZA, and the company!
Our time there was absolutely perfect. Brandon, Laef and I stayed in a gorgeous home with a sweet couple. It was Laef’s first trip anywhere, and what better place is there than the Hamptons?
The day started at Ashley’s Grandparents house, and then over to the small cottage behind the church (where Ashley and Luke now live). My husband drove out to Montauk (on the tip of the island) where Luke and his groomsmen were staying.
Side Note: There were almost thirty people in the bridal party. (Crazy amazing!)
Ashley’s Dress is by Ian Stuart. Its the “Premiere”. She bought it at the bridal salon that I used to work at in Kansas City, KS (Bridal Extraordinaire.)
The flowers were done by The Stem, a business that Ashley’s sister, Molly, owns. So beautiful!
A special thanks to my incredible husband for second shooting. I love you, babe.
I’ve decided to do part one and part two of this wedding, just because there are so many beautiful images from their day
Congrats, Luke and Ashley! I sure love you both!
Rebecca and Jesse were our neighbors for years and years. We had the best snowball fights in the winter, pumpkin carving in the fall, fireworks in the summer and hiking in the spring. Late nights spent doing pranks on our other neighbors, taking long walks around our neighborhood and laughing for hours. We love the Graston’s. Last year they moved a little ways away, to a beautiful farm. They had their first baby and we still miss them living a few doors down. Every now and then we go out to “Grastonia”… shoot guns, go four wheeling, badminton, bbq, and swing on the hammock listening to the peacefulness of farm life.
Their beautiful boy, David turned one this month. I took some photos of this fabulous day! Enjoy! ;D
Happy Birthday David!
