Hi there! I'm Rachael West!
More than photography, I love romance! I love the entire process of falling in love and marrying your best friend to spend the rest of your life with. I am privileged to have a creative outlet like photography and honored to capture so many intimate & moving moments in the lives of strangers. It's truly a gift!
The couples who love getting into nature, crave adventure, or Elope to the top of the mountain to exchange vows are the Couples who choose me.
Your Wedding day is one of the most memorable days and a labor of love, and choosing the right Photographer is essential for capturing your vision. If you love to laugh and are in for some adventure to take photos, then we are a great match!
Excited to hear from you! It's gonna be aaaamaaaazzzzziingggg!!!

The best surprise
Looking for a wedding photographer can be extremely stressful, because in the end photos are some of the only tangible things you have to remember your wedding day. When looking for a photographer I had a short set of qualifications: I wanted someone who could not only do bright airy photos, but someone who could capture a bit more of a moody vibe. I wanted someone who could hang out with the wedding party all day, and not feel intrusive. I wanted someone who could capture this once in a lifetime experience in a unique way, and not break the bank. Rachael hit all the marks in spectacular fashion, and truly went above and beyond. One of the things we really loved the most about Rachael that we were not originally searching for was her sense of adventure. When she suggested Big Sur as a location for our engagement shoot we were delighted and super into it. When she told us she found an epic spot for our first look on a set of rocks jutting above the ocean, we were psyched (and I was a little terrified to go up in a wedding dress, but she held my shoes). In the end all the adventures she took us on created some of the most ridiculously beautiful photos I've ever seen, and sometimes I look at them and can't believe she captured my husband and I so well. Hiring Rachael was one of the best decisions we made in the entire wedding process, and we are so grateful for her and her immense talent.Sent on 08/05/2019

Arguably one of the best experiences I've had with a photographer. She and her husband caught every moment we could have hoped to be captured. She leans into darker tones in her work and we LOVED the emotion caught in the photos. My husband and I have been raving about her to everyone. She was prompt in getting us the photos (faster than we expected, by far) and the wedding album came packaged so beautifully. I HIGHLY recommend Rachael West Photography!!Sent on 01/03/2018
