When your flowers have died, the cake has been eaten, the guests go home, and the dress has been cleaned, boxed, and put away—what you have left from the day you’ve dreamed of your entire life are your photographs.
I’m Rachel and I have been photographing weddings for over 10 years! As a wedding photographer I know that a single photo may be beautiful, but a series of images that are carefully crafted into a narrative can have an exponential impact in allowing my couples to relive their wedding journey. What I do as a photographer is more than capturing the single moments of your wedding in a series of images. I specialize in showcasing the experience of a couple’s wedding day through experiential photography, allowing expression to occur organically through movement in order to capture genuine moments.
From behind the lens I visually narrate the story of the day you got married but my natural intuitive ability to connect and guide brides, grooms, wedding attendants (and reluctant family members!) helps alleviate the awkwardness of being photographed! My relaxed but focus approach helps create an atmosphere of romance, poignancy, joy and playfulness-leaving the gateway open to capturing genuine emotions.
As an experiential photographer my best tool isn’t just my camera and my passion for creative storytelling, but rather my ability, honed over the course of shooting 300+ weddings, to make being the subject of your own story feel comfortable and authentically you.
