We are an award winning, husband and wife, Sarasota photographer team based in Sarasota, Florida. We have many years of experience handling wedding photography and are known for our vibrant, editorial style photos. On the wedding day Rachel will follow the bride and Xiwei follows the groom. Together, we provide complete coverage of your day and a memorable gallery of your photos that display your personality, your wedding day and the fun and love that encompass it all.


Rachel and Xiwei have been married for thirteen years and originally met through a friend in Tallahassee. We started the wedding photography business after experiencing disappointment in our own wedding’s photography services. We learned through experience and various courses over the years. After years of learning and shadowing other masters of the craft, Rachel and Xiwei started Ying Photography six years ago to serve couples in the Sarasota/Bradenton area, but also state-wide.


When we are not working, we are spending time with our kids or working on our hobbies. Some of Rachel’s favorite hobbies include coffee, reading and crochet. While Xiwei likes to dabble in shrimp keeping, computers and cars. We have three children- Elly, Abby and Nate. Some of the favorite family activities include swimming, D&D and video games.
