My interest in photography began as a teenager when my parents gifted me my first camera. From there it turned into a love affair that followed me throughout college, where I received my BFA in photography. When my dad passed away in 2018, I immediately knew that it was my calling to capture the most important moments in people's lives so that they would have images of their loved ones to cherish forever.

Whenever I pick up my camera I strive to make you feel beautiful and comfortable with me. I will thoughtfully capture your love story in a timeless and elegant fashion that will leave you wanting to print and hang your images for everyone to see. I truly believe that there is no bigger gift than to physically hold your dearest memories with the ones you love the most. 

I am so excited to get to know you and hear all about your love story. Reach out to me and let's get to chatting and save your date on my calendar!

Your Award-Winning VA, DC and MD wedding & portrait photographer

Rachel's Associate Photographer

I am a Cali born girl and an expert at organizing and coordinating large wedding parties! I am also a wife, and a momma of three beautiful and fun loving girls. I started my journey into wedding and family photography in 2016 when I started a family of my own, because I knew then just how important it was to document these precious and fleeting moments. With my experience I will capture your own timeless memories for you to pass down for years to come. 

When I am not behind the camera you can find me daydreaming about my next beach vacation (hello, Florida!), watching rom-coms, exploring antique shops or going on hikes with my family.

Rachel and her team were amazing. I picked Rachel as my wedding photographer because her style is timeless!

She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera, and gave us the most memorable pictures to look back at. Rachel is the whole package!!

Rachel is a gem! She’s not only SO talented and professional, but also the sweetest and most patient photographer I’ve ever worked with. My partner and I were very picky with selecting a photographer for our wedding and we couldn’t be more pleased and happy with Rachel. Our wedding pictures came out even better than we could’ve imagined. There is no doubt that she has the skills and expertise. In addition, throughout our wedding day she was so calm, kind, and helpful.

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!!

McKinnon + Colin

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 and 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!

Miranda + Walker
