Photos that feel ALIVE

What story does your photo legacy tell?

Visualize | Connect | Capture 

My goal is to deliver priceless photos that take you back to the very moment they were taken. My clients can count on me to always have a plan of action and a smile on my face! I encourage you to focus less on the "perfect Pinterest image" and enjoy the overall experience--which should be enjoyable and lighthearted!

I capture genuine emotions and joyful moments that clients may not know to request and the ones that are often overlooked. You will feel comfortable as I guide you through effortless portraits  while still allowing you to express your love in that moment. 

I have an editorial eye and some of my favorite work is exhibited through flash photography that come as organic moments unfold. I strive to capture emotive, candid shots and beautifully lit portraits that will one day become treasured family heirlooms.

"I was constantly blown away with her work and all the surprises and sneak peaks she sent our way"

Words can’t describe how incredible Rachel is as a photographer and as a person!!!! The photos she gave us are so so special.  She spends time getting to know you and your fiancé, makes you both feel comfortable, keeps you laughing and makes sure you are having fun!!! She pays attention to detail, prioritizes your photo needs / wants, wrangles large bridal parties so easily, keeps organized and on schedule very well and personally cares about you as a person and couple! 



"She is so fun, patient, down to earth, and not to mention, extremely talented at what she does!"

I cannot say enough good things about Rachel!! When we got engaged last year the first vendor we booked was Rachel. My friend had previously used her for their wedding the year before and I knew she was amazing. Whether it be wedding photos, family or maternity sessions, etc, Rachel is an absolute joy to work with and I highly recommend her!!!

"She has a contagiously positive attitude and the best energy"

Not only is Rachel an exceptional photographer but she is an extraordinary person. Photos can be very awkward and stressful but she makes it so much fun. Rachel is professional, timely, and most importantly kind. She will literally bend over backwards to get the perfect shot and deeply cares about capturing those once in a lifetime moments. Her work speaks for itself, she’s absolutely amazing!!
