It's been about 5 years since I stood in your shoes and planned my own wedding.  When it came down to it, I was so overwhelmed that I had no idea where to begin when it came to finding a photographer.  So I got on my venue's website, and I picked my photographer based on whether they have shot a wedding at that venue before,  While the pictures turned out pretty good, something very important was missing.  My husband and I didn't look like ourselves.  We saw our faces smiling back at us, but our personalities were nowhere to be found.

We regret not doing our research and not hiring someone that focused on genuine interactions and connection. Now it's my turn to create an experience that allows you to be 100% YOU.  I don't want you to settle for someone that is pretty good.  You deserve to have a photographer that gives your photos LIFE.

There's my face

Cool.  Glad we got that out of the way.

I've been able to turn that around every single time.

I'll tell you to do some pretty weird things. You will be so focused on that thing that I just told you to do, That i've already captured your reaction laughing about it. No more fake smiles or awkward poses. Your photos will truly look like yourselves.

I'm going to show up to our shoot in my checkered Vans with my unicorn hair. I encourage my clients to do the same and be unapologetically themselves.

Self Expression

I'm an ally of the LGBTQIA, BIPOC, and Deaf communities and will welcome and celebrate anyone regardless of skin color, size, religion, or sexual orientation. With that being said, It's so important to me to create a judgement free and anti discriminatory experience. 

I'm all about

Rachel was so incredible to work with! She is so much fun and so creative in how she views wedding photography. We absolutely love our photos, they are so evocative of the feeling of our wedding day. I feel like it is very easy for wedding photos to be generic and uninteresting, Rachel’s photos and talent are the absolute opposites of that. She is very easy to work with and understood all the moments we wanted to capture. We would absolutely work with her again in a heartbeat!

Rachel is the absolute sweetest photographer and works magic Behind the camera, she really has a eye for alternative looks and made my spooky halloween wedding dreams come true. She made us look like a magazine spread and I'm so grateful for her skills she is so amazing. Hire her for all the alternative weddings and photoshoots.

Let me just began by saying that Rachel is absolutely phenomenal. I met with several different photographers before my wedding and I just knew that Rachel was the person I wanted to photograph my big day. Rachel is super down to earth and funny. She works with you to figure out what is going to be the best thing for you. She is extremely professional and gets your photos back to you in a timely manner. On my wedding day when everything was going awry Rachel just took initiate and took care of everything to make sure my day was documented.
