About

We provide story-telling photography. Our photos veer towards art—with the weaving together of subject matter, emotion, location, and occasion.

Due in large part to the support of old friends, and new clients who have become like old friends, we have grown from just little-ol’-me Rachel, into a select team of talented photographers. With a knack for connecting to people in a personal way, we love to capture unique images of your family together, weddings, new babies and even livelihoods and businesses. Every member of our team shares a similar style and eye for capturing the emotion and art that unfolds during our time with you. Your experience with all of our team is intended to be seamless, fun and just plain GREAT! Our ultimate goal is to make you so happy that refer us to others, and come back to us again someday.

I wish I knew someone else who was getting married so that I could so that I could recommend Rachel, I guess a review will have to do!

We knew as soon as we met Rachel that we wanted her to be our wedding photographer. She met us at our venue and talked about all the places we could do photos, she was so passionate about it! She really cares about what she does. Not only did we get our pictures quickly, but they were amazing! We had a sneak peak to us while we were still on our honeymoon, and all of the pictures not too long after. I have gotten many comments from guests about how fantastic our pictures came out. I'm not even sure how she got some of the pictures. Not only did it seem like she was in multiple places at once but she captured some wonderful pictures of our guests without them even realizing it. The pictures came out beautiful and natural.

I started getting stressed about time and she calmed me right now. She was a joy to be around and the wedding party and our family all loved her. Your wedding photographer will be with you on this very important and special day, so you want them to be someone you actually like to be around!

If we need a photographer again we know who we are going to call :)

My fiancé and I are so grateful we were able to book with Rachel McFarlin. After 5 of our friends got engaged right around the same time and all the wedding/engagement photos began trickling out, we knew we wanted something that was unique to us. Rachel was able to work with us over email to accommodate our busy work schedules and completely understood what we were looking for. She helped narrow down the selections for where we should take our photos and provided specific sites for us to review before scheduling.

After giving us a few hints on what to wear via email the time came for us to have our photo shoot. She made us feel so comfortable by cracking a few jokes and keeping the mood light. We wanted something a bit less lovey dovey and photos that played up the natural elements of San Diego. We could not be happier!!! The entire shoot was about 45 minutes and we left feeling more excited about our wedding than ever.

Less than 2 weeks later we received an email with a link to our completely retouched, professional photos!! There was also a link to share with family and friends. That is basically unheard of and was SO helpful since we were waiting on them to order our Save the Dates and finish our wedding website.

If you have the opportunity to work with Rachel you are in for a treat! She is a charismatic woman who makes you feel like her most important client! Thank you, Rachel McFarlin!!!!

My hubby and I were engaged for well over a year, which gave me plenty of time to nail down what we really wanted for our wedding day. We live in Northern Nevada and were so busy with ending school and work that we really had no time to travel to San Diego. I stumbled upon Rachel's website one day and spent hours going through her blog posts and photos. I instantly fell in love with her work, and how much she actually cares about couples and their happiness! I contacted her immediately via email and knew right away that she was meant to be our photographer! I can't even begin to explain how helpful she was from the start. We had a smaller wedding and a short ceremony at a venue that I chose after seeing her beautiful photography of a wedding there, and she was ON IT with the time frame and making sure we had all the pictures we wanted. I was actually running late coming from my h&m appointment, and Rachel was so calm and helpful with me arriving about 1/2 hour later than expected. She made sure that my dress was on correctly and I had all I needed and was ready to go when the ceremony began, since I was a little flustered. I cannot imagine our wedding with any other photographer! Sometimes planning a "destination wedding" through email and phone calls seems a little crazy, but Rachel seriously was the key to making our wedding day beautiful and exactly how we wanted it to be remembered!
