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!

“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!”
