Hey there, I’m Rachel!
First things first, I’m obsessed with the real and raw version of your story. I love the connection and chemistry between two people insanely in love with each other. I wanna hear all about how you met, who made the first move, and how he proposed. Tell me all about what you love about each other and where you hope your marriage is 20 years from now. Let’s get out on the dance floor and bust a move and celebrate everything that makes your relationship unique!
So, why wedding photography?
Simple. I’m a hopeless romantic who strongly believes that the wedding photography industry has become too stiff. My mission is hand a piece of you to your future, that way this moment of time lives on forever. I love the intricacies of what makes your day special and I love the idea that by highlighting these little moments, I’m doing work that is everlasting—just like your story.
I believe photography is way more than just taking pretty photos—it’s understanding your story and what makes it unlike anyone else’s love story. At the end of the day, it’s not about me. Your photos are about you and being able to give you photos that will that will show your story for eternity. While we may not live forever, your photos will and I want to help you create something that can be handed down generation to generation.
Before we get too deep, it might help to know a little more about me. I'm a born and raised Southern California girl who lives in Nashville, Tennessee. I’m a huge fan of the New York Yankees and my relationship with Jesus is what gets me through the day. Tea is my jam and I love it more than coffee.
You can find me at hole-in-the-wall places eating Greek, Ethiopian or tacos. If I’m not out and about, I’m snuggling up at home with my kitty, Mr. Darcy, while watching movies featuring Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly. Hugs are seriously my favorite and I'm a proud hopeless romantic. (Yes, I absolutely tear up when listening to cute and/or sweet songs and movies.) I enjoy a good pun and I laugh at all my jokes which obviously makes me a pun master, right? I’m a big goof and not afraid of that because I do whatever it takes to make you smile. If you take me to a theme park, I’ll watch your stuff because I definitely won’t ride any of the roller coasters.
I’m definitely not the photographer for everyone as my specialties are all things silly, adventurous, and wild. I want your photos to reflect your personality! If your eyes are filled with life and you’re laughing like a little kid, I’ve done my job. Stiff, generic posing with not a wrinkle in your clothing isn’t my thing. I crack way too many dad jokes and give way too many hugs while I work to take things too seriously, like a standard vendor would. I want you to know me as a human—the lively, sappy person behind the lens. (Yes, I will cry during your ceremony and get things started on the dance floor if no one else will. No shame.)
