Charlottesville wedding & Portrait photographer

Crafting exquisite images of life's most meaningful moments for the joyful & modern Charlottesville Couples & Seniors

I am a fine art, Charlottesville wedding photographer with a love for capturing timeless moments and everlasting emotions throughout the East Coast. Although I am Virginia based, ask me to travel! My bags are always packed and ready for a destination wedding no matter how far! In the rare moments that I don't have a camera in hand, you can typically find me exploring the best downtown locations with my love, Nathan, or working away at a local coffee shop. 

It is my deepest desire to preserve your moments through film-inspired imagery that represents your story. I want you to be able to look back in twenty years and not only remember what you looked like, but also what you felt like.

Rachel is the most talented photographer I've ever worked with

She truly creates such magical photos. My husband and I connected with Rachel for annual family photos to celebrate our time in Virginia before we move out of state - and I honestly love her photos more than my own wedding photos!! She's so kind and such a bright light to work with making it a wonderful, happy experience. She went above and beyond in every way and we are so thrilled with the memories we have in these photos! Thank you Rachel!!

Rachel is the most amazing photographer, and I recommend her to anyone and everyone!

Before my husband and I got married, we booked Rachel for our graduation/engagement photos., The photos turned out better than we could have even imagined! A few weeks later, we had a private marriage ceremony followed by a reception with family and friends, and Rachel captured the joy of the day AGAIN better than we could have ever asked for. She is the nicest person you will ever meet and an incredibly gifted photographer!

Rachel is simply amazing! She has photographed our engagement session, our wedding, and we recently booked a mini session with her. Her photos are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! She always makes us feel comfortable in front of the camera and wonderfully captures our true selves in her photos. She is also just an incredibly sweet human and we always have so much fun working with her. We can’t wait for our next session with Rachel!

Rachel is beyond talented in her work and she creates a fun and comfortable atmosphere. If you’re feeling camera shy or unsure of what to do Rachel knows how to put you to ease and capture beautiful moments. My significant other  and I had a couple session with her this fall and she knew the best time and place to go. So, if you’re looking for a photographer who you can rely on for capturing your sweetest moments Rachel’s your girl.

We absolutely LOVE our wedding photos and will cherish these beautifully captured memories forever.

If you’re looking for a professional, talented and reliable wedding or event photographer, Rachel is your girl! She and her second photographer, Nathan, did an outstanding job on our wedding day (and for our engagement photo session)! Rachel is very easy to communicate with, fun to be around, and she made our day so special by going above and beyond for us!! We highly recommend Rachel to anyone seeking professional and gorgeous photos and who is looking for the best in a wedding vendor. We have gotten so many compliments on our photos and cannot stop looking at our wedding gallery. Thanks so much, Rachel. You are a true talent and a gem!
