My name is Rachael and I love capturing life with my camera! I've had a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember. My father was my initial inspiration for photography, as I was surrounded by the images he created when I was young and it grew from there. From the big clunky point and shoot, to the disposable and now my camera of choice, the Nikon D300, I love to capture moments with whatever camera is at hand. (Even on my wedding day I couldn't keep the camera out of my hands!)

When I was young I was fascinated with old run down barns, (ok, I still am and often make my husband pull over so I can snap my camera a few times!) fall colors, children, couples in love, brides and all the special moments that life has to offer. These precious moments that seem to slip by so fast...and ya know...they last longer if you take a picture of them! (see that line still works even if you aren't an 8 year old on the playground!)

I truly believe that talent and passion are gifts given from God, therefore I believe it is part of who God created me to be to use my photography to help spread the Glory of God.

I am a passionate person and it shows in my love for God, my husband and my children. I put 100% into all that I do (except for maybe cleaning the bathroom).

My passion for people and capturing those moments of life spill over into my love for photography, so that I create images that you will treasure for a lifetime.

I hope you allow me to share my Simple Heart with you.

We loved Simple Heart Photography! Every part of the process was made easy. The photographers are fun and genuine. Always willing to provide advice and support beyond what I would expect from a photographer. I felt very relaxed on the day of the wedding, confident that she was capturing all aspects our perfect day. Super easy to get along with, taking the time to get to know us so she could better tell our story. We love our pictures and will cherish them forever. You can feel their big hearts when working with them and it makes all the difference.

Rachael is absolutely wonderful! We met her at a Bridal Show and actually won a free engagement session with her. Her work is amazing and my fiance and I are so happy that we chose her to be our photographer for our wedding. We have nothing but great things to say about her and her work. She has some unique picture packages and her prices are great for out budget as well. Thank you Rachael for working with us and for capturing our big day this fall.

Rachael is such an amazing photographer. We first met her at a bridal shower and I am so thankful we met her when we did. She really takes the time to get to know her clients as individuals. This is portrayed in her photographs. We absolutely loved her personality, style, and creativity. I gave her some Pinterest poses I wanted to capture that she had never done. She executed them perfectly and you would never have known is was her first time shooting these. She is also very patient. She and her husband Brian endured the 100 degree weather outside in order to capture an outdoor picture with my husband and our dog on our wedding day. I would recommend Simple Heart Photography to anyone who is in need of a down to earth, creative, and affordable photographer. We definitely were glad we chose simple heart photography to be our storyteller!
