Fairy Tale Level Magic

Rachel is by far the best photographer I have seen. I work in video editing so I heavily researched several photographers before committing to her and she beyond exceeded my expectations.
Her packages are perfect and having the engagement session prior to the wedding is the perfect way to get comfortable with your partner on camera with rachel. She’s funny, very calm, and extremely easy going.
She got every single shot from my shot lists and blew me away with her talent.
The pictures are all you will have left when you wake up the day after your wedding. This is the investment that matters and you should absolutely go with her for any photography needs.
Me and my husband already have the idea of doing an at home Christmas session just as an excuse for more beautiful pictures!

Amazing Experience

Rachel was 100% everything we could have ever wanted in a photographer. From the moment we first spoke, I felt like she was a friend and would vibe well with my (now) husband and me. Our engagement session was fabulous, we felt so relaxed and comfortable and Rachel truly captured us and our relationship beautifully.

When I did my bridal shoot with her, I had the best time and felt so confident. I promise you that Rachel will be your ultimate hype girl, that was one of my favorite things about her. Months later I am still obsessing over the bridal shoot photos.

When it came to our wedding, I just can't even say enough good things. Our original date had to be changed due to COVID and she worked with us to be sure she was available on our new date, she was just so easy to work with and was so accommodating. The day of the wedding, it just felt like Rachel was one of our friends there for the wedding who also happened to be taking our pictures. We fully trusted Rachel and her suggestions, guidance, and ideas. We are absolutely in love with our wedding photos and could not be happier. She captured our most wonderful day perfectly, with all the best moments and emotions. We are forever grateful for Rachel and her talent, we will be booking her for all our future photo sessions!

I'm Rachel Ily

You're personal hype girl! When I'm not behind the lens you can find me spending time with my hubby and our pups! I love mornings the most, making coffee and avocado toast (because I'm a millennial) and reading/journaling before starting my day. Fun fact my middle name is ILY, it means I love you. My mom gave it to me way before texting was a thing (crazy, right?) It is very special to me.
