About This Vendor

Hey there, Rachel here. The lady behind the lens and the passion behind the story. All my work is a result of places I've been and stories I've had the pleasure of capturing.

I shot my first wedding (a story I won't get into now...) in 2014 and never looked back. I do what I love full-time and couldn't be happier. 

Here is the deal. I want you to remember how it felt. And then when your memory fails you, I want my photos to do the work. I do my best to capture the tender moments, the stolen glances, and the belly laughs. So let's throw away the poses and start capturing real moments. I'll provide the moment, you bring the kisses... I want to capture your "right now", and "this is how it feels". 

Every photographer is unique and has their own style. From me, you'll see that I pose less and guide more. I'll never tell you to tilt your head or move your knee because that's not what real life is about. Real life is about having a moment so special you want it documented forever.

Rachel was wonderful to work with! I found her at the Minneapolis Bridal Expo and knew she was the right person to photograph our special day, solely based off of a first impression and her awesome logo/design! Throughout the whole process - from our first meeting at a coffee shop, to our wedding day - Rachel was very personable, accommodating, and maintained great communication. Rachel made us feel very comfortable during our engagement shoot & wedding day, capturing the photos naturally, but helping pose when we needed it. We received our photos extremely fast, and are very happy with how they turned out! Rachel delivered unique and beautiful photos that tell the story of our wedding day so well. If you are in search for a wedding photographer, look no further!

Rachel is an incredibly talented photographer. She did an amazing job telling the story of our January wedding. She captured every laugh, tear and other emotions of the day. She's extremely nice and easy to work with - we couldn't have asked for a better experience. She turned around our photos in no time and they were beyond anything we could've imagined. We've received many compliments on how amazing the photos are, and we agree! Thank you, Rachel!!!

I found Rachel at the wedding fair and after going through a sea of photographers Rachel's photos stood out like a beacon of light (I know that sounds cheesy but quite literally that's the moment I had). I knew instantly that she was the photographer I wanted for my wedding. She was a joy to work with from meeting with us before hand to get a better sense of us as a couple and our needs to the day of when she was such a positive presence! I love that she captured the real events of our day (I didn't have to do any cheesy poses which I'm ecstatic about!) and she seamlessly blended in with everyone while getting all of the specific pictures I asked for. Thanks to her I have pictures of my wedding that I am absolutely in love with and will help me remember the day (since let's be honest, it went so fast!). I would wholeheartedly recommend Rachel and I hope I will get to have photos again with her in the future!
