Excellent work all around. Rachel made the whole process very easy and the photos were exactly what I was looking for.Jun 23, 2020Verified
Rachel is a wonderfully kind and talented individual! Her flexibility allowed for my fiancé and I to get pictures at several different locations at no extra cost (she won't nickel and dime you). We loved the engagement photos she took so much that we ended up making a book for ourselves and our families. Don't hesitate to contact this artistic soul; you will be happy you did! Highly recommend.Jul 18, 2018Verified
Wedding and Event Photography
Rachel is polite, responsive and professional. I hired her last minute as I hadn't had the chance to book a photographer for our event, and I'm so glad she was available and interested! She was detail oriented, and ensured we got every shot that I wanted to get. I look forward to working with her again!Jul 8, 2018Verified
Awesome photographer!!! Had a great time with her, she’s laid back and captures special moments naturally.Oct 21, 2018Verified
Rachel was incredible to work with! From the first moment we were in contact, she always responded within 12 hours. She completely understood my ideas and offered wonderful suggestions too! She truly captured my vision of taking photos around the Tidal Basin and Jefferson Memorial during the fall season. She gave great direction, made us feel comfortable, and picked great spots around the area to take photos. We received our photos with a direct link within two weeks, and they came out so beautiful! Thank you Rachel, for your fantastic professionalism and quality of work.Nov 15, 2018Verified
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically, my sessions go as follows: If you haven't already decided on a shoot location, I work with you to find select an area that's most convenient or best fits the aesthetic you're going for (I'm happy to help make suggestions as needed). During our session, I work with my subjects to make them feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera. I'm a big fan of capturing the candid and in-between moments, when you're feeling most at ease and natural. After our time together, I edit all the images and send them back within two weeks. I email my clients a link to the digital album where all of the final high-res images can be downloaded and prints can be ordered easily.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a BFA in Photography in Film from Virginia Commonwealth University and a Master's in Film Studies from the University of Edinburgh.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I've worked with all kinds of people, ranging from individuals needing headshots, couples celebrating engagements, intimate weddings and elopements, to family reunions. No matter where you're from or who you love, I want to be there to capture your own unique story.
