What it's like to work together

The experience —

AN EXPERIENCE THAT FLOWS LIKE MUSIC

From the moment your inquiry hits my inbox until when you hit "play" on the slideshow of all your wedding photos (set to your first dance song, of course), you are fully taken care of. I grew up as a classically trained musician -- meaning passion, drive, exceeding my goals, and bringing joy to others has been my style for over 10 years. Not only will you feel completely 100% yourself in front of the camera on the wedding day, you can be self-assured that the person behind the lens (that's me!) does anything

and everything behind-the-scenes to ensure the final product is not just a collection of photographs, but a concerto where every single moment of your day is captured with intention and heart. I hand-edit every photo you receive to reflect the mood, feel, and vibe of the moment. My editing complements your moment so each and every image has a feeling to it. The smooth notes of your emotions are connected with my bold editing that translates the excitement and energy in the day. 

Say hello to photos that your families will treasure for the next 100 years, yet also feel 100% authentically like you. My editing style is always true-to-life and complements the mood of your day. No trendy filters here. 

My photos are moody in the sense that each and every one has a genuine FEELING to it. 

I see each image literally as a mini work of art, each one with a specific meaning to it told through emotion, color, and perspective. 

Timeless feels with modern flair

Growing up as a classical musician, I learned that every single note mattered. Each one needed thought, care and nuance. Now I bring that aesthetic to every photo - both as I shoot them and afterwards - knowing that each one is a unique moment in time and a forever
memory for you.

One practical but important detail is always taken care of: your photos stay safe and sound with me forever. I have a five-tiered backup system to ensure that every photo we capture is captured for all time.

I come into your wedding not just as a vendor, but as a human. An honest relationship with me as your photographer translates to honest imagery of the two of you.

This means being with you through the process from start to finish. Never cutting corners. Always giving you my expert opinion on photography while making sure your vision is truly translated into the photography and the telling of the story of your day.

As a natural empath, I am completely in touch with you throughout the whole process. Respectful of your relationship and family dynamics, taking care of your needs, and being there in your corner.

"Where do I even begin? 5 stars isn't enough."

I instantly knew that her bubbly, charming personality was exactly what we wanted to be around during our wedding day.

And as predicted, from the moment she entered our getting-ready space she didn't feel like a hired vendor, she felt like a friend. Her creative directions were spot on, and the results were nothing short of epic.

"THE BEST DECISION WE MADE."

Rachel is a complete joy and legend to work with. Her attitude is completely contagious - making us feel so at ease and relaxed in front of the camera. 

Her natural talent for photography captured every special moment of us. The photos were so full of life, colors and texture! There’s so much magic. We cried. If you want the most authentic, unique, and fun photos, she’s your girl.”

"ALL OF OUR GUESTS COMMENTED ON HER PROFESSIONALISM"

Rachel felt more like a great friend who happened to be documenting our every move throughout the day -- which made for the most authentic photos.

Whenever you hire a wedding vendor, you’re inviting a random person to be part of your most special day. From the moment we met Rachel, everything clicked and we felt so comfortable booking her. Her energy is just amazing.

"5 stars is too few for someone with this much talent, vision and follow through"

My father is a photographer, having worked for LIFE Magazine throughout his career -- my whole family knows quality images when we see them. Finding the right wedding photographer was key for us and Rachel was the perfect choice.

Her work is so unique - she plays with shadows, unusual angles, and depth of field more than your average photographer. All of her wedding photo-sets tell such a beautiful story.

"I REALLY DON'T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT. SERIOUSLY."

Working with Rachel was honestly such a dream. She has an amazing eye for capturing the details, blends in seamlessly, and captured everything tastefully and artistically.

She kept the family formals quick and light, yet commanded the audience and directed everyone appropriately. She even took extra time after the wedding ended to shoot more portraits. We so appreciate that she went above and beyond to capture our moments for us.
