Rachel is a real pro - if you are looking for beautiful, real, crisp, clear portraits, engagement and wedding photos, family photos - anything - look no further. Rachel instantly made me feel at ease in front of the camera and knew exactly how to guide my fiance and I to capture authentic and natural photos. She is brilliant at using natural light, too. We could not be happier!Nov 12, 2017
We had a wonderful experience with Rachel. We were on our family vacation to Washington DC from Louisiana and wanted to take some pictures to use for a Christmas card. Rachel suggested Great Falls Park which is beautiful. She met us out there and hiked with us as we explored and posed for some shots. What we got was amazing to say the least. She snapped tons of photos, candid and posed. It was so much fun. You can't go wrong with Rachel. She is very friendly and knows what she is doing.Nov 27, 2017Verified
Rachel created a stress free environment even though we had to change locations last minute due to weather. By the end of the session my boyfriend and I were already so excited to see the results because we knew between how much fun we had and how many great ideas Rachel had, there was no way our photos wouldn't be stunning. We were right :)Feb 27, 2018Verified
Rachel is a doll and really made our first experience having professional photos taken a breeze. She made us both feel at ease and comfortable, and we're already discussing plans to have more photos taken in the future! THANK YOU RACHEL! :)Dec 5, 2017Verified
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
- 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.
