There is something so special about photographing a wedding day. Being able to capture the love, joy, and emotions from such a significant day in your life is something that I'm forever grateful to be able to do!
I became a full time photographer at the age of 20. And shortly after, I realized my love for weddings while planning my own wedding! In my first year of business, I photographed 10 weddings. In my second year, I booked 30! As my business grows through the wedding industry, my knowledge does, as well. I've seen it all! Which has given me the tools and experience to handle any given situation. Rain or shine - I've got your back!
I provide you with wedding timelines and other tools to allow your wedding day to run as smooth as possible. And the end result? Photographs filled with memories to last a lifetime.
"Rachel is simply amazing. From our engagement picture session where it was absolutely pouring to the conclusion of our wedding day, Rachel was outstanding.
I always dreamed of having my horse at my wedding so I knew I had to ask Rachel if she would be okay with taking pictures with my horse. I was so excited when I got her reply and she said she could not wait!!! We were amazed with how they turned out. It felt like it was straight of our a fairytale; it was more than I could have ever wished for.
In addition to Rachel's amazing talent with photography, she helped immensely with keeping everything right on time on our wedding day. She's one of the friendliest and most professional people you will ever meet. I couldn't recommend any one better to be behind the lens for any of your photography needs. She will turn your dream photos into reality. Thank you Rachel for your everything you did for us! We will cherish these memories forever."
"We had the pleasure of working with Rachel at our wedding in Port Gamble, and all we can say is how did we get so lucky to find such a great person to capture the moments of our special day! Rachel's eye for the scenery and moments of joy is all we could have hoped for and more. She even saved the day with her umbrella when it started to sprinkle a bit! If you want those moments in life that should be remembered forever to be captured in a photograph, she is the one to call. We can not emphasize enough how evident it is that she does this amazing work because it is the passion of her life"
"I had a small intimate elopement in early December. Not only did Rachel drive four hours to photograph but she, kept me on schedule, got me ibuprofen, and breakfast. Then drove another hour into the snow to make my dream snow wedding come true. There was at least two feet of snow to trek through and it was beyond freezing. Not one picture do I even look cold, she made me look like a winter woodland princess. I have never looked or felt more beautiful in my life. The pictures turned out incredible and we're back to me within the week. I could not have asked for a better wedding photographer, she really went above and beyond on my special day. I would recommend Rachel to literally anyone getting married and with 100 percent confidence they would have the same experience I did!"
"From the moment we hired her, Rachel went above and beyond expectations (and we had high ones after viewing her gorgeous portfolio!) Not only is she a fantastic photographer, she’s a very warm and genuine person, it felt like working with a friend right from the beginning. Throughout the process, she was courteous and professional— never intrusive, but always catching the best moments of our engagement/wedding that we may have otherwise missed.
We got married at the Point Defiance Pagoda in Tacoma, Wa. Rachel was already on site an hour before schedule time. Unfortunately, with Washington's unpredictable weather it started raining. She improvised and drove from our venue to Hotel Murano, where our wedding party was checked in. She was able to photograph us getting ready, and the photos turned out fantastic!
The day after the wedding, Rachel had already sent me a few sneak peeks she had edited that I could view and share with my family and friends. Sneak peeks in less than 24 hours is every bride's dream!! Everyone was asking for photos, and it was so easy to be able to post and send them! Seriously, everyone (including us) were so impressed! Her website is so organized; we were blown away! Overall we LOVED working with Rachel. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for WOW photos for their engagement/wedding!"
"Five stars can't justify what Rachel and her team did for my husband and I. Every moment of our photo session (engagement and wedding) felt so natural. Both of us felt like we were in our element and able to capture our feelings for each other. I am extremely lucky to have come across her page as I am completely enamored by the photos I have. The fact that I can relive my wedding day over and over again is breathtaking. I will never be able to thank Rachel and her team enough for what they have given us"
