Passionate & Dedicated

I’m Rachel – a wife, mom, and a wanna-be homesteader
(I want chickens so bad for some reason)
I’m also a textbook INFP and daydream believer – I left my career as an RN to pursue my dream to be a wedding photographer full time, and I’ve never looked back.

Photography is something I was born to do. A skill I learned from my late father, photography is deeply rooted in my heart. He taught me how to preserve those special moments.

I have won awards and have had work published in magazines, blogs, and art galleries. Even with 10 years of experience, I am constantly learning and growing. Hey, who else is going to toot my horn?
*toot toot*

I believe gratitude is the key to happiness

What I’m grateful for

My little family is so dear to me. After my father passed I’ve become keenly aware of making the most of the time we have together. You can probably sense that those ideals manifest in my work as well, as I love capturing those happy memories.

I love:

Our pups (we have a long haired dachshund and a boston terrier)
antique shops!
breweries with food trucks
music and great shows
playing guitar


I don’t really love:

sitting for too long
going to the movies (see above)
talking on the phone
forgetting bugspray at outdoor venues
grooms that hate pictures

"We had the best experience with Rachel! She did our engagement shoot, my bridal portraits and our wedding day. We absolutely are in love with her photos. They are more like art! She has a fantastic eye and we’re so glad we have her photos to document our memories. Would use her again for our next life stage photos without a doubt."
