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!

C&O Canal Engagement PhotosAugust 7, 2018
I learn this lesson more and more as time passes: if someone tells me they aren't great at having their photo taken, the opposite tends to be true! Such was the case with Cecilia and Steven's C&O Canal engagement photos this past weekend in Potomac, Maryland. Cecilia and Steven were such naturals in front of the camera - and ...
How to Manage Frizzy Hair for Humid Day Photo ShootsAugust 2, 2018
You guys, I come from a place of YES, as one Bethenny Frankel advocates. So one of the biggest joys I get out of my business is solving challenges that arise - finding the YES, figuring out how to make things work. It feels even greater when I can help my clients with their challenges, so that's the spirit of ...
“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!”
