Love isn’t always perfect, and that is okay! If you are looking for picture perfect photos, I’m not your girl. My focus is on real emotion as it unfolds. They are your moments, so they are perfect in their own way, and they deserve to be captured beautifully. 

my approach
is a little bit different 

I want to bring out your true personalities in the way you naturally are together. None of the awkward posing stuff. I guide you through every step when you are in front of my lens, but I do it in a way that will bring out your real love, and help you great real moments to remember forever.

The love I have for what I do starts with you

Once you inquire with me, we will chat for a bit or set up a Facetime to get to know each other a little bit more to make sure we are a great fit for each other! All of my booking, contracts, and payments are online, so I will send over a digital Proposal with a contract and invoice. Once we are booked, I will send over my Welcome Guide with all of my best tips to help you with your wedding day.

what to expect on your wedding day

I will be with you through the entire process helping you figuring out Timelines, details, and logistics, to help ensure your day is as amazing as possible and to utilize the most out of your time with me. I am here not only as your photographer, but a friend who is helping to make sure your day is great!

On your wedding day, you can expect me being very present and helpful the first half of the day. I will be right with you when you put your dress on, squeezing your hands before the first look, directing the wedding party and family, being your personal dress fluffer, and everything in between. The second half of the day I act more as a fly on the wall capturing your candid moments and letting mingle and enjoy time with your guests! One of my favorite parts of your day is capturing sunset photos (even if there is no sunset). It is a time in the day where you are stress free and laid back, and I always capture some of my favorite moments during this time.

You can expect a 6-10 week turnaround time for your full wedding gallery, although I love sending sneak peeks within a week of your wedding! Your photos will be sent on an online digital gallery in high-resolution so you can download then right to your computer, phone, and send the gallery link to family + friends to share. I also give you the print release so you can have your photos printed to share with others of course!

If you are even on this website BOOK RACHEL RIGHT NOW! Rachel is absolutely amazing. From your first inquiry to your session with her, Rachel is so sweet, helpful and fun. Her bubbly personality made us feel extremely comfortable during our time with her. 

Prior to our session, Rachel answered a zillion questions I had and was extremely flexible with the location of our shoot. During the session, she guided us every step of the way and knew exactly where to be to get the best light, shot, make sure we weren't doing something TOO weird etc. We were so nervous going into the session, but had SO much fun. 

Rachel sent us a sneak peak the NEXT day with so many amazing photos. We have definitely found our "forever" photographer that we hope will capture us throughout all of our big life events in the future. Book her now!!

Rachel did our engagement photos and it was the best experience we could have asked for! It was a cold January day but she made it SO much fun with her direction and posing for us we weren't even thinking about how cold we were! We had such a blast and she captured our love so beautifully. Every little moment between us, every laugh and every look between us, she captured in the most beautiful way.

Not only was the shoot itself a blast but she sent us samples for a sneak peak THAT NIGHT. She was so thoughtful of our deadline and SO amazing. The online album is also extremely user friendly and it was easy to choose our favorites and download them in high resolution to use for our prints. Rachel is the best of the best and anyone she shoots is lucky to have her!

How can I even begin to put this in to words?? Rachel EXCEEDED our expectations times 1,000! My fiance and I had no idea what to expect going in to our engagement session. We'd never had professional pictures done of just the two of us before, so safe to say we were pretty nervous! Rachel made us feel SUPER comfortable and I honestly just felt like we were hanging out with one of our friends. 

Our pictures are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen, I actually started crying when she sent us our sneak peaks. I can't wait to have them printed and hung all over my house!
