"Rach, you already know how much we love you!

Your energy, your ingenuity, the calmness you bring to the day simultaneously with authentic excitement. Both Dom and I were absolutely blown away, by you as a person and as a photographer. I am just so over the moon we connected, our day wouldn't have been a 10th of what it was without you there. Rachel is a dream to work with, and by golly, any nerves that were there at the beginning of the day were honestly dissipated within the first 5 minutes of photos! She makes you feel so comfortable, and how she encourages/suggests you pose for photos is so natural you don't even realise you're posing, just there having a wonderful with your husband/wife. It felt like a day spent with a good friend, celebrating love and having SO many laughs. On top of her talent as a photographer, she is just a truly wonderful and genuine person. She asks questions to listen and get to know you better rather than just to respond, she shows sincere kindness like you've been friends for decades, and just feels like pure sunshine to be around."
-Jasmine + Dom


I can go on about Rachel forever!! I initially chose Rachel as my wedding photographer because I loved the bright lighting in her photos. I definitely got more than what I bargained for as she is a planner/ photographer/ supporter all in one! Rachel was there for me throughout my elopement process and made the wedding planning so much easier! She’s super easy to talk to and her
personality is so bubbly and joyful!

Her expertise on the Yosemite area helped us find the most perfect places to take photos. She knows all the great angles and lighting I love how Rachel told us how to pose for each photo. She
made everything so easy for us."

"From the moment we first met Rachel, we immediately felt a connection and felt completely comfortable with her. The second we got off the FaceTime call to her, my husband and I looked at each other and both said “she’s the one we want to capture our love”. Rachel is so organized and responsive. She has been such a help from the start to finish of my wedding planning process. She is so bubbly and sweet and has such a positive energy. She is just one of those people that you love to be around because she radiates happiness. She was also able to be calm and keep me at ease on my wedding day- my hair and makeup was running behind which was going to set my whole wedding behind schedule. I was getting so stressed out, and she immediately came over and reassured me and calmed me down. 

Rachel is all around amazing! Not to mention how incredibly talented she is at photography. I cannot stop staring at both my engagement and wedding photos. Her photos are so beautiful, crisp, clear and just all around stunning. I highly recommend Rachel and we will continue to use Rachel for all our photo needs in the future."

"I swear she was like a wedding planner on the side. She called me and we got a timeline set up for the day. She also reached out to other vendors and my maid of honor and day of coordinator to make sure everyone was on the same page and that things would run smoothly. She is extremely organized and reliable. The day of the wedding, Rachel was exactly how you would want a photographer to be. She has such great energy, she’s positive, fun, personable and makes you feel so good about yourself (I swear I wish I could keep her in my pocket all day to pump me up)."

My friends and family were constantly telling me how much they loved my photographer throughout the night. Rachel sent us some sneak peaks after the wedding to tie us over until we got our gallery. Once we got our gallery, it was so fun to re live the day and again she exceeded our expectations. The pictures are so beautiful! I love her lighting and she captured the day perfectly! We couldn’t be happier! She even created a slideshow for us of our day. I HIGHLY recommend Rachel as a photographer for whatever the life event may be. You will not regret it! Best decision ever!"
