    "This is the first testimonial I have ever written, and it goes to Raychel. This girl is an amazing, wonderful, astonishing photographer. She is beautiful and absolutely obsessed with b&w photos, but that just makes her even better. She is able to capture the most beautiful aspects of life and meaning. I admire her work, and always will. Her photostream was one of the first I found, and will always be my favorite. Check her out, you won't regret it."

    "why have i not written one of these for you yet? i am obviously quite slow

    you are an enormous inspiration to me; your photos, each one of them, mean something special to me. each one tells a story, and as soon as i visit your stream and see that you've uploaded a new photo i get really giddy and excited. your photographs convey so much meaning and emotion, which makes them all the more precious. they are honest and sincere, and i really think that you should start uploading again because as soon as you get out there and take some photos, your inspiration will find you. you are also such a lovely person. i feel like we've known each other for years and years. you are so kind and an overall delightful person, and i am so glad i have had the opportunity to get to know you."

    "Raychel, you have a seriously rare view of the world and on photography. I'm so glad I found someone on here that enjoys the same things I do. Everything you take looks almost like a snapshot, but at the same time its easy to see it was a well thought out image.That's what I strive for in my pictures, so I understand your work more than most people on here probably do. So what makes you stand out from everyone on here is taht i can tell you have a vision when you take your pictures, and you go after it and capture it amazingly every time."

    "Raychel Sonveeco is one of the reasons that i check flickr every day. Every one of her photos is golden. It's undeniable. Trying to better my photography, i was thinking "why are her photos soooo good?". I started looking at all her pics from the beginning of her photostream, and it didn't take long for me to realize that each picture she posts is completely HER. She expresses herself through all her photos. (you do not get that impression from most pages on flickr. and she does it so consistently!) I feel like if we ever met, i would already know what her personality is like because of looking at her photos. To just say that she takes great pictures does not do Raychel justice. In order to express yourself at anything, you have to have a mastery of whatever it is you're attempting, so it's a given that she is great at photography. keep em comin raychel! i'll keep looking, but i doubt i'll learn anything from you because what you have cannot be taught."

    Though you may feel uninspired yourself, you've inspired me(and I'm sure many others). Whenever I need motivation, you are honestly the first person's pictures I think of.
    I think you'll do a lot with your life."

    I'm going to edit it, because it sounded strange.
    I love the tones in your pictures! They dark, but bright (not overpoweringly either!) and it's something i've always wanted to have in my pictures.
    I also love your focusing! It's perfect everytime.
    Long story short, Keep up the amazing work!

    i'm so glad i found raychel's photostream! i wish i could just favorite her, as a person, instead of every single one of her photos!
    her photos get better everyday. (not that they need to get any better :P)
    and her self portraits! best self portraits on flickr, hands down.
    not to mention that she's a lovely person. so sweet and kind! :)

    keep up the fantastic work girrrrl!"

    fallacious jellyfish says:

    "I normally hate people who fill their streams with self-portraits. I mean, can't you find another subject?? But sometimes, too, I don't mind. Because some people are just so creative with themselves (and other people just won't pose for them because they're killjoys). Some people's vanity (or not) sets the world on its ears (or eyes). Some people's selfies are absurdly beautiful you just have to look at them, staring and staring. Some people are great that way. Some people are born for self-portraits.

    And yeah. Yeah. Rachel is one of those people. :)"

    "Raychel is one of my favourite photostreams here.
    I am always happy and looking forward to see her photos, like a small girl which cant wait to get her ice-cream from her favourite ice-cream man :P.
    When I browse the photos of my contacts and I see that Raychel (can I call you that yes? :D) uploaded a new photo, I am so happy to see more creativity and inspiration.
    She also looks very pretty , sometimes like Zoey Deschanel or Katie Perry (both are very similiar) and i absolutely L-O-V-E her clothing.
    I am a shopahlic, I like to dress nicely so Raychel is a bit inspiration for me not only in photography, but in clothing too. :)
    I wish you the best in your life my dear, never give up photography please :)

    " I can't say I know Raychel personally, but I can say that I - and probably everyone else that's ever stumbled across her page - wish I did. I love her work, her art. It's unique, honest and beautiful. She really knows how to convey her personality through a photograph, and every single shot is awesome whether she will admit it or not. It probably helps that she always has a naturally pretty and incredibly cute model (herself) that she can shoot pictures of at any time. But even so, not just any photographer could capture the moments as perfectly as she does. I've never written a testimonial for anyone before, but I really think she deserves one. And not just because she looks like Zooey Deschanel (haha, which is cool enough in itself). She is an amazing photographer, she has such a uniquely spelled name... and she loves Owl City, This Providence and, most importantly, Jesus :)"
