YOU'RE SO WORTH THE INVESTMENT
That's what photography is, it's an INVESTMENT and let me tell you, you are SO worth it!! You can have the most gorgeous venue, amazing florals and allllll your loved ones there, but if no one is there to capture it well, those things only live for one day. My photos are timeless and authentic and they will last a LIFETIME so that you can relive your day over and over again.
There are SO many photographers and vendors out there. Picking the right one can be overwhelming, stressful and hard. I get it. Let me help take some of that stress away.
Photos can speak for themselves, but let me tell you a little bit more. I capture unique, unposed, natural moments. I dedicate so much time getting to know each and every client so that before I even pull out my camera, any awkwardness or discomfort just fades away.
If you're just looking for someone to show up and be a fly on the wall to capture your wedding, I'll be honest, we probably won't be a good fit. I'm not here to be just a photographer. I'm your friend, hype woman, coffee/water/snack deliverer, personal dress bustler, emergency seamstress, chauffeur, bridal party herder, boutonniere pinner, you name it! I will be there to help you plan along every step of the way.
Every wedding is unique.
Therefore, every wedding photography package should be unique. I get to know you, your budget, your dreams and the carefully planned out details that you've made before sending a proposal your way.
You also don't have to make any final decisions until three months before your wedding day. A flat retainer is due when you book, but if you're booking a year in advance, it can be hard to know exactly what you want.
I make it easy for you.
I take as much of the stress off of you and take that on myself. That's what I'm here to do! Serve you so that you can focus on other wedding planning details, enjoying your engagement with your fiance, and on the day of spending time with your new spouse and your family and friends.

“Rachel is fantastic! She was hands down the best choice for our wedding and our engagement photos. She made the process stress-free, easy, and an absolute great time! We felt so comfortable with her from the moment I met with her to go over contracts, all the way until we got our final photos. She is professional, caring, and incredibly talented. I highly recommend trusting her to capture your most important moments!”
We want to book! What are the next steps?
If you haven't already, go fill out that form under "book me" and we can get the ball rolling! Once it's time to make things official, I'll send you a contract to sign and an invoice where you can make payments right there. You don't have to decide on a package right away, all that's needed is a $1000 retainer payment to reserve your date!
Can I customize wedding packages to fit my needs?
Absolutely! I'm a firm believer that every wedding is unique, and therefore every wedding photo experience should be unique. I get to know you, what you're looking for, and how I can best serve you before sending your custom packages your way.
What if we don't know how long we want you for?
You don't have to make any final decisions about your package until three months before your wedding day. A flat retainer is due when you book, but if you're booking a year in advance, it can be hard to know exactly what you want. I'll be with you along the way to plan so we can make an informed decision about how long I should be with you on your big day.
How long are sessions and when do they take place?
I hate putting time limits on our time together, but you can guess right around an hour to an hour and a half. I try to schedule all my sessions to be right around an hour before the sunsets, AKA "golden hour." This is when the light is absolutely stunning and will make your photos that much better!
What do travel fees look like?
I've already calculated those ahead of time, so what you see in the pricing guide I send you is what you get (plus taxes of course). I adore traveling the globe to capture your love, so I make it simple for you so you don't have to guess how much will be added to your package for travel.
How much of a retainer do you require? When is it due?
A retainer payment is due when you book me, as well as a signed contract. For weddings, that amount is $1000 and for sessions, it's 50%. The rest of your payment is due 3 weeks before your wedding or 24 hours before your session.
When do I get to see my images?
For weddings, you get over 50 photos straight to your email within 24 hours of the end of the wedding! The final gallery will be in your inbox in 4-6 weeks. For sessions, you'll get sneak previews texted to you within a few days. And your full gallery will be yours within 3 weeks.
Do you carry backup equipment?
Absolutely! I shoot on two cameras with multiple lenses, all of your photos are shot on two different cards and are immediately backed up in three locations after our time together. Keeping your photos safe is my TOP priority.
Do I get the rights to the images?
You are more than welcome to download, print and share images from your personal gallery! However, the rights to the images to publish and submit photos for publication remains with me, the photographer.
Do I get access to the RAW images?
In short, nope! I don't send RAW files because they are unfinished work! Of course, a huge part of what I do is the actual shooting of a session/wedding, but another huge part is the editing. Photos without my edits and/or with someone else's edits aren't entirely my work anymore and I only deliver finished products! I promise the only photos I cut out of final galleries are duplicates, the out of focus photos or photos where people are blinking, so you'll get plenty of photos from our time together. And you can download them at their full size and resolution from the galleries that I send you.
