I'm an enneagram two + an ESFJ, which basically means that I love talking to people and I really care about the humans in my life. I just cannot with black coffee & I am HERE for lattes and traveling. teaching kids in far off countries was my original dream, and Jesus brought me photography and I am so incredibly happy. you know those things in life that you never would have ever asked for, but you don't know how life would even function without them? photography is that for me. I am grateful, every step of the way.
I'm about fall bonfires and long + laughter filled reminiscing with family. I love listening to people's stories, and finding out why they are the way that they are. I love local coffee shops, and listening to the Walter Mitty soundtrack while I edit. I like crazy travel stories and being reminded that the most memorable times are when things don't go according to plan. I like being in third world countries with people, staring at the vast amount of stars that seem to be so much brighter than back home. I love words of affirmation and finding out someone's enneagram number with them. I like sitting with someone from another culture and realizing that my way is not always the best way. I love the song cherry wine by hozier, and falling asleep to the sound of rain outside my downtown apartment.
I've had the incredible opportunity to shoot in the following locations:
prague, czech republic
brooklyn, new york
shenandoah national park
yellowstone national park
Oh man, where would we be without experiencing the beauty of other cultures? From the beautiful cobblestone streets of Prague to the wide desert of Arizona. Each culture brings a new perspective of love + unique charm.
If you've checked around my website, then you should know that I am an avid traveler. My passport is well worn and updated, and I am ready to GO. Elopement, destination wedding, adventure shoot, engagement- whatever you want, I'm THERE.
"Rachel is fun and professional! She made us feel so at ease during our photo shoot and the pictures turned out amazing! We were laughing so hard as she positioned us for shots. We had fun during the shoot and came out with beautiful pictures. I couldn’t recommend her more!"
If you're looking for photographs that remind you of the way your heart beats fast, where you can feel the adrenaline kicking in, that feeling of the first time you told your person you loved them- then look no further. I'm for those real, authentic moments, moments that remind you of that wild, unfiltered, real love. whether that's in a field full of wildflowers or in your one bedroom apartment in the city- I'm about the photographs that show YOUR love story.
