Professional Photographer in Washington DC – Baltimore MD – Northern Virginia
HI THERE, I’M RACHEL!
If you were to take a peek at my everyday life, you’d probably find me working from my Mac at home or a local cafe, or out and about at a photo shoot or wedding.
My favorite thing to do is snuggle with my Yorkipoo, Milli. She truly does make every day sweeter! I’m a pun aficionado, prosecco lover, Top Chef fan girl, photographer (of course!), and someone who is still surprised by how much I enjoy business. I love all white everything, J. Crew statement necklaces, sentimental touches, traveling, trying new food, making my friends laugh, and yes — I do love taking photos, even in my spare time. It’s still my favorite hobby!
I’m bright and light and that comes through in the images I create. I love capturing the story of my clients in an authentic, true-to-life, joyful way. You will thoroughly enjoy the process as well, from booking your session or wedding to receiving your images. I pride myself on providing a high end and happy experience to every classic, elegant, brilliant person who graces the front of my camera!
I love shooting photos outdoors, in natural light! (Don’t worry – I am an expert at flash photography too, for your indoor ceremonies and receptions!) I schedule many of my sessions around magic hour, which provides the best light and will give us the highest quality images! You know what I’m talking about: that beautiful glow that illuminates the earth right after the sun rises and right before sunset. That’s the light I like to play in and believe me, you’ll love it too!
read my recent blog posts, feel the joy!

What an honor it is to share these photos with you from this weekend's Herrington Harbor South wedding! It's an honor to photograph the wedding days of all my couples, of course, and I'm not afraid to admit this one was extra special. Why?

“My husband & I spontaneously
decided to go to the courthouse to get married & I thought saving those
moments would be important. I asked Rachel to be there to capture our ceremony & portraits. She was very kind & even though my husband hates to be photographed, Rachel was able to make him feel comfortable & relaxed, and the result – fantastic photos! I highly recommend her services & you will enjoy working with her!”
