Your genuine moments are the ones that deserve to be remembered

At the end of the day, there is one thing for certain that you will want to take with you - more time. As a photographer, I give you the gift of time. Not only capturing but preserving precious moments to take with you forever. 

None of that posey stuff. I'm all about creating real moments + connection for the joyful, laid-back, adventurous lovers.

Let’s begin your greatest adventure yet.

whatever your adventure is, 
it deserves to be
captured beautifully

Rachel is the type of person who is super easy to bond with, makes you feel more than comfortable in front of the camera, and is someone you can immediately call a friend! Her bubbly, outgoing personality makes FUN a total understatement of the shoot! I used to always feel awkward getting my pictures taken and never know what to do or how to pose but Rachel makes it super easy and so natural! My boyfriend does not like getting his pictures taken and after this shoot he said “that was so fun I would do it again anytime”. We even played tag! This day was magical and not only were we getting our pictures taken but we were having so much fun while doing so and totally forgot there was a camera snapshotting every moment. I would 12/10 recommend Rachel Traxler to anybody.

Rachel's unique prompts and fun sense of humor makes anyone light up. She is so talented, and so good at what she does you can't find another photographer like her. She gets it, she captures it, and she makes you feel dang good about it in the end! If you want a photographer that captures every single moment that you want to remember and look back on years from now, Rach is your gal!

Rachel was the best and easiest decision for our entire wedding! She was organized, helpful and knew how to keep everything going! before the big day, she worked with me in figuring out the timeline of pictures and even helped with the overall timeline of the day! we never once felt rushed during the day and I give that credit to Rachel! She knew exactly how to keep the pace going to ensure we captured all of the groups we wanted and she knew how to pose us! She knew how to bring out everyone’s true personality and it showed in the pictures. She knows her lighting, she knows how to pose everyone and she definitely knows how to capture it all at once! Absolutely thrilled that we chose Rachel and I would recommend her to everyone!
