Specializing in Wedding and Engagement Photography
I simply love photography. I love the artistic outlet it creates. I love the technical aspect. I love the challenges. Most of all though, I love capturing those moments and times in life that are so meaningful and can slip away in the blink of an eye. I love doing this for myself and for my family and I love capturing the love in the lives of others…those fleeting moments that later are cherished for generations. The love shown between others. The love of a family. The love between a couple. It is so fulfilling to do this from behind my lens...I've found it's such an effective way of capturing that emotion...and so many more.
I started loving photography when I got married in 1999. My passion for it grew and grew and I tried to learn everything I could...not because I had to but because I wanted to. I craved it. That has brought me to where I am today. I still crave that learning and my journey continues along that path. I am so grateful for this art form. I am a photographer because i love it. I love people. And I love the simple things in life that can be brought into focus through my lens.
I LOVE shooting weddings. I am in my fourth year of shooting weddings...and still love it just as much as the first! My approach to shooting weddings is a somewhat photojournalistic method....I love capturing all of the beautiful details and candid moments that make up the day...getting ready, the special interactions between family members and friends, etc. With that being said however, I shoot the formal wedding pictures as well....for example, the full wedding party, family groups, etc. It's all about capturing everything that makes up your meaningful day....the details, the love, the guests and especially the love that you and your fiancé share. One of my number one goals is to capture your wedding in a way that portrays the emotion of the day.
I consider it a true honor and privilege to capture a couple’s special day. I would love to hear about your wedding!

We are sooo happy we decided to book Rachelle as our photographer! She is the most friendly, hilarious, talented photographer and I felt like I was jut hanging out with my friend on my wedding day. Photos can be stressful but we spent our entire engagement session and our wedding day laughing, smiling and having fun. She made us feel so comfortable right away and it definitely shows in our pictures. Our pictures by the way, were arguably the most important thing to me while planning. I could not be happier with how they are turning out so far in the previews. People still talk about how our engagement shoot should be in a magazine, you would never know that we shot those on one of the hottest, most humid July days in Michigan! (Not to mention it was snowing during our wedding photos!) Rachelle we are absolutely thrilled with your work, but also want to thank you for everything you did for us on our Best Day Ever. You played a bigger role than you even know in making our day perfect!Sent on 02/27/2017
