Aside from bride and groom portraits where posing is favorable, I truly value candid expressions and undistracted moments. I like to step back as much as possible and allow the memories that are unfolding to play out organically. I curate beautifully intentional stories with purposeful details that are often left behind after your wedding day. The little details and adorning pieces will reflect your wedding in a artful and timeless way. I will help you gather all the perfect items that might easily be missed, like your grandmothers pearl necklace or your favorite perfume bottle. I eagerly anticipate working by your side to help create heirlooms and capture memories worth treasuring. I can't wait to be a part of your story!
Ps, your engagement session is on me when booking a wedding package! Why? I believe that engagement sessions are a wonderful opportunity for all of us to car pool and get to know each other. I want both of you to show up on your wedding day feeling like I'm a friend and not a stranger with a big camera! Let's take advantage of this complimentary session and go somewhere fun like Smith Rock or the coast!
The moment my husband proposed I knew we had to book Rachel ASAP. I couldn't get married without having her photos, and no one else would be good enough after seeing her work. We just got our album back from our wedding yesterday, and seeing the photos is like reliving the best day of our life over and over again. Rachel is able to put up with crazy large groups of people, annoying groomsman, and stress of running around all day to capture a large wedding. Everyone that got the chance to work with her was so impressed with her professionalism and ability to direct groups to get the perfect shot. We have so many favorite photos we don't even know what to do with all of them. I would hire her over and over again if i could. Thank you Rachel!
You guys book Rachel! It will be the best experience ever! I booked Rachel from Idaho. As you can imagine planning a wedding, your photographer being so far, and having a secret boudoir shoot to do the day before the wedding can be worrisome. Every step of the way Rachel was there, she made sure I knew what was going on, and I knew I could count on her. The first time I met Rachel was at my boudoir shoot. Not necessarily the most normal or comfortable way to meet someone for the first time haha. But, she literally made me laugh and feel so incredibly comfortable the entire time. Not only was I comfortable but she empowered me! The next day was our wedding and she went above and beyond. My husband was terrified of cameras being all up in his grill but she made it so fun that he did not mind at all. She has an eye for detail, she's a true artist, and truly professional. She not only was our photographer she became a part of our group. I would recommend her a million times if I could.
Rachel did such an amazing job photographing our wedding! Before the big day she even came to the venue with us to scope things out and get ideas flowing. She had great communication with me the whole time and really tried to get a feel for what I was looking for. The day of our wedding she showed up bright and early and introduced herself to all of the bridesmaids. She took my dress to the venue to get photos with it, took beautiful details shots, got photos of the guys getting ready, and was there to photograph my most important moments. We even got all of our photos back, completely edited, in one month! I was so happy with the way they turned out and working with Rachel was an absolute blessing. I would work with her again anytime.
We absolutely loved working with Rachel for our wedding (and engagement shoot and bridal shoot!) and we cannot recommend her enough. I was nervous about taking photos because I can be pretty shy in front of a camera, but Rachel made me feel so comfortable and kept us laughing the whole time (which was so so important to us). She also goes above and beyond to help you create your perfect day and answered any and all of my questions and help in any way to she can. She is the perfect blend of being incredibly professional, while also making you feel like she is one of your close friends. We are completely blown away from the images she captured. Everyone we know was blown away too. I trusted her fully with her image and so glad I did. She captured our style perfectly, and better than I could have imagined. We want to get family photos done, just so we can work with her again!
We had such an amazing time working with Rachel! She put us completely at ease during our engagement session. She advised us on everything from what to wear to how to pose, and the photos turned out beautifully. We felt so comfortable during the entire session, and Rachel did an amazing job of capturing these moments. She has an amazing eye and offered the perfect amount of instruction while still allowing us to be ourselves, and we were so thrilled with the final product! She got our photos back to us so quickly and we were blown away by her talent. I already know that if there are any life moments that we need to capture in the future, we will be asking Rachel - she is so sweet, easy to work with, and incredibly talented.
