OH HEY!

My husband, Blake and I LOVE trying new things together; food, hot yoga, downhill mountain biking, you name it! Finding outdoor adventure and all the Marvel movies. I’m a summer girl, line dance regular, morning person -gasp!- and 8 wing 9 for all my Enneagram lovers out there. 

Fun fact. I actually met my husband when I was 15! See what chocolate Munchkins, motorcycles and a 100lb sign have to do with it here. ;) 

I’M RACHAEL, WEDDING & ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER & SMALL BUSINESS OWNER.

KIND WORDS FROM PAST CLIENTS

"RACHAEL WAS AMAZING. SHE WAS ALWAYS ON THE TOP OF HER GAME, FRIENDLY, AND RESPONSIVE. SHE ALWAYS GAVE CLEAR DIRECTION ON POSING FOR PICTURES AND KEPT A GREAT ATTITUDE. SHE WAS RECEPTIVE TO OUR IDEAS AND WAS ABLE TO PROVIDE GOOD FEEDBACK ON HOW TO UTILIZE THEM. FINALLY, THE PICTURES ARE BEYOND AMAZING. WE LOVE THE NATURAL, EFFORTLESS LOOK IN OUR PHOTOS. IF WE WERE TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN, WE KNOW WHO WE'D GO WITH!"

“…She went over every detail no matter how small, she was fantastic. Then when we first had our engagement shoot I thought it would be some long drawn out event, but no Rachael made it so much fun and we will cherish that day forever. Then the day of the wedding Blake and Rachael were so kind, and loving. They made us truly feel at ease, they were one step ahead of us the whole night. Everyone in the bridal party was impressed by them. We got the pictures bad so quickly! They made a magical day, an even more magical day...”

“Rachael was seriously the best photographer we could have asked for…My husband HATES getting his picture taken- seriously his least favorite thing to do so I was pleasantly surprised that she could keep his attention for the time we had. Rachael was so patient and helped us get through the pictures quickly so that we could join cocktail hour. We got our wedding pictures back this week and they are absolutely beautiful, great quality… Everyone says that you have to find a photographer who is a great fit & she was perfect for us!”
