Rachel Havel is an internationally published, award-winning destination photographer. In constant pursuit of inspiration, she journeys through life with her heart seeking to spread love and inspire greatness. 

Her ability to connect and engage with her clients individually, allows her to create a comfortable space where couples can be fully present and unashamedly themselves. She is grateful to create imagery that is unique and embodies the essence of each couple.

Based in California, she regularly works with some of the top planners in the nation, and her work has been recognized in Harpers Bazaar, Martha Stewart Weddings, Inside Weddings, Brides Magazine, The Knot, and more.

I believe in living a life that is permeated with love, inspiration, 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 in constant pursuit of knowledge and am inspired by the world around us: the nature, the beautiful people and cultures within, art, history, and music. 

My favorite photographer is Rodney Smith. His intentionality, evocative imagery, and playfulness are exceptional.

I live for stories that embody intentionality, personal connectedness, and inspiring landscapes. 

In my down time 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.
