About Rachel

I think I have the best job in the world. Since 2012, I’ve photographed over 450 weddings, 350 engagement sessions, hundreds of family portraits, dozens of corporate events, and headshots for over 3,000 individuals.

This is always a little surprising, but I’m a self-taught photographer. My undergraduate degrees are in Writing and Mass Media Communication (Concordia College – Moorhead, 2008-2012). After completing my degrees, I began building my photography business while also working as a project manager and creative producer for a Minneapolis meetings and media production company.

My photography bookings increased over the years, and eventually I was able to convert my passion of photography into a sustainable business that supports my family. I bring my experience in communication, organization, attention to detail, creative production, and customized planning to each photo shoot I schedule.

Work aside, I have an amazing family.  I love animals – we have two cats and a dog. Cooking and baking, and spending time with my husband and two children are how I unwind every day. My getaways are hiking Minnesota’s North Shore, reading a good fiction novel, sipping a cappuccino, and adding to my ever-growing houseplant collection.

Rachel was AWESOME! She did our engagement and wedding photos. I was highly impressed by her professionalism, kindness, and patience. I am not one to have my photo taken and she provided gentle direction when we needed it. Her second photographer, Amber, was also great. They make a great team and I would highly recommend them! I wouldn't have made it through my wedding day without them! Thank you!
