Photography is a big part of your day and I'm here make it enjoyable, natural, fun, and organized so you can focus on soaking up every memorable moment with each other and your loved ones.
It’s a joy for me to provide light and bright photography in beautiful outdoor locations and venues in D.C., northern Virginia, Maryland, and beyond, for brilliant, elegant folks who love to laugh! I know the most joyful, timeless images are created from a wonderful experience, so my goal is to make you feel at home in front of my camera and taken care of from booking to delivery of your images!
It’s an honor to be chosen to capture one of the most important days of two people’s entire lives—and a privilege to get to make that experience wonderful for my couples. The commitment I make to all #REHPlovebirds is that I will give you beautiful, timeless images alongside an easy, fun, organized experience focused on you as a couple that has you feeling relaxed, in the moment, and confident.
to capture joyful, timeless images of your love
I do my best to make sure all my couples and I are a perfect fit for each other before reserving your date. Connection is one of my biggest values, so I know it’s important for a couple to connect with and trust their photographer, and be excited about working with them! The first step to forming that connection is through an initial phone call. I get to answer any questions you have and we get to know each other!
Your engagement session is about more than getting dressed up for beautiful photos in a gorgeous location; it’s us getting to know each other and about you practicing in front of the camera before your big day. And maybe the best part - you get to include your four-legged friend(s) too!
I want you to have the best experience possible on your wedding day, and everything that’s included in your photography package reflects that. I love helping couples plan their timeline so you get to enjoy your day, each other, and your guests.
Once your wedding day arrives, everything will be in place! We will have everything planned beforehand so once I arrive I can hit the ground running and all you have to do is be in the moment to enjoy your day.
I love to include surprises along the way so you can enjoy your photos as soon as possible, but I’ll keep a lid on those surprise details for now. What I can tell you is you will have your final images gallery within 30 days of your wedding to delight in and share with friends and family!
"I am in love with our wedding photos! Rachel was so professional, organized, and kept to a very strict timeline, but also bent just enough to make sure we got the photos we wanted. What I really appreciated is that since we got married during a heatwave, she put ours and our guests comfort first. Most of all, I appreciated not having to think about any of it and the pictures all came out beautiful. She has a great eye, is very talented and made us feel so at ease while she was basically climbing a tree to take our photos. Rachel is the total package when it comes to a photographer!"

Elopements are so romantic! I adore the idea that two people are so in love and excited to get married, they want to whisk away as soon as possible to say their I Do’s! Elopement and micro-wedding packages are designed for your specific needs, and can include anywhere from one to four hours of photography.
