Meet Rachel

I am an idealist who believes in living a life that is rooted in love, inspiration, and adventure. I believe that a full life is crafted only with intentionality, purpose, and gratitude. 

What started as creative expression through photography in 2009, later became a passion and a place for my ambitious and entrepreneurial side. 

I’m inspired by the world around us: the nature, the beautiful people and cultures within, art, history, and music. 

When I’m not photographing wedding stories in epic landscapes, you can find me at home with my husband and three children. Music on, wine in hand, and cooking delicious food next to my love. 

Thai food is my staple, sushi is always a good idea, and I’ll never turn down a pint of Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream.
