Hi! I’m here to help lovers look and feel their best in front of the camera so that they can have a stress free experience and gorgeous images for generations to come!
I think the most important thing that I can do as a photographer is to affirm and validate all sizes, genders, ages, cultures, abilities, and to help bring out your joy. The reason that we capture your moments is to help you feel beautiful and to see your natural glow as fine art.

The Absolute BEST!
Rachel was an absolute DREAM to work with! She helped capture our special proposal in Chicago that we will now have gorgeous pictures of to remember for the rest of our life. Rachel has a bubbly, free-spirited, easy-going personality that makes working with her an absolute joy. She delivered our pictures to us VERY quickly and they are absolutely stunning. I cannot wait to work with Rachel again in the future, I HIGHLY recommend for all your photography needs.Sent on 12/06/2020

Best photographer ever!!
I can't even begin to describe how amazing Rachel is. She took photos for our elopement/small wedding in Chicago. She went above and beyond to make our day feel so special. At one point, I was so nervous my hands were shaking, but standing in front of her camera with her kind, calm, and detailed instructions made all my nerves go away. After the elopement, we all sat around talking about how much we all loved Rachel and how comfortable she made all of us feel!
Most importantly, she has an AMAZING eye for lights/angles/background. She helped us take photos that I didn't even know I wanted. The photos came out very quickly, and I was able to share them with all my family and friends who couldn't make it to the wedding due to COVID.
I highly, highly recommend Rachel. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture our intimate wedding.Sent on 03/22/2021
Rachel came highly recommended by the sister of the groom and I am so glad she was available to shoot the wedding! Not only did Rachel arrive early, so she could scout out different view points to get the best shot of the bride and groom during their intimate backyard wedding, but she also took time to get detailed shots of the decor, location as well as individuals shots of all the family members with the bride and groom. The bride and groom were so happy with all the photos they received and love that they had Rachel there to capture all those memories for them. I look forward to using Rachel in the future!
Rachel is extremely professional, talented and friendly. Take a look at her profile or website and I promise you will be impressed. I feel that the friendly piece is very important, as I have worked with rude, uncommunicative photographers before who will knock you out of the way to get their shot. Rachel truly cares about her clients' happiness. I highly recommend Rachel!
