Rachel made our engagement photo session so much fun and a very memorable morning during the Cherry Blossom festival! I love the preview photos so far. Can't wait to see the final gallery!

Rachel did such a great job on our shoot, especially considering she only had about an hour of our time to work with. She was punctual, professional, flexible, and very sweet. She had our photos back to us within the timeframe quoted, and she gave us a variety of different types of poses and styles so that we had plenty of options from which to choose our favorites. I am totally floored by how lovely our photos turned out, and we have received so many compliments on their composition and quality! Highly recommend Rachel! Thank you again! ❤️🌷🌸📷🌸🌷❤️

Rachel was exactly what we were looking for!! We needed a photographer for an elopement photoshoot, and after describing what our 'vision' was, Rachel immediately knew where to take us. Easy to work with, and made us feel comfortable during the shoot. If you're looking for a great photographer, look no further! We absolutely love the photos, and hope we can work with her again in the future.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer pricing per hour of photography coverage. Please feel free to reach out for my pricing packages!

  • 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 three 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.
