From the moment we connect, it’s my goal to help you feel at-ease. I know how to plan your day with you, I know where to take you for the best shots, how to help you pose, and (best of all) we make it fun!

My photography is crisp and clean, with true-to-life styles and colors. I love natural light and the outdoors, but I also love when I get to be technical with off-camera lighting in dark and challenging spaces. I use a variety of shooting styles throughout each wedding, which include traditional and contemporary portraits, photojournalism, in-the-moment candids, and closeups of every detail (big and small). I’m hands-on and detail oriented, but I’m also laid back and fun-loving.

What I look forward to most about each and every wedding is creating a custom collection of wedding photos. I won’t just photograph your wedding – I’ll create the story of you, uniquely yourselves, on your wedding day.

I call Minneapolis home, but am always willing to travel. I've photographed weddings across greater Minnesota and the Midwest (Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin, North Dakota and South far).


Note: Rachel also has an associate lead on her team, Allison! If Rachel is booked on your date, no worries! Allison is an incredible photographer and visual storyteller, with an emphasis on candid moments that capture the emotion of your wedding day.

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!
