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!

    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.

    Most amazing photographer!

    Rachel is seriously amazing!! She photographed our engagement session recently and I am obsessed with the photos to say the least. She is so sweet and she made us feel so comfortable during the entire shoot! She will talk you through all the poses and will hype you up behind the camera. She is an amazing photographer and I cannot wait until she photographs our wedding next year!

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!
