I am a Pennsylvania and destination wedding photographer based in Philadelphia! I grew up in a town right next to Fort Myers, FL called Cape Coral (most people have a better idea of where Fort Myers is vs. Cape Coral haha). I moved to Philly almost 4 years ago now and I am loving every minute of it!
A lot of the times when my clients first meet me they ask how I got started in photography and to be honest, I have always loved it but I was just too scared to take the jump and put myself out there as a business. But once I decided to push myself and do it... it was the best decision I have ever made and wish I had just trusted my gut and started sooner.
Meeting everyone, getting creative and running my own business has been an absolute dream and I feel so incredibly grateful that I get to do this. It really doesn't even feel like a job to me!
My goal is to make everyone that steps in front of my camera feel comfortable and confident... and to also have fun while doing it!
I have two dogs who are my best friends and the little loves of my life, Peanut and Nugget. Peanut is a Chihuahua/Jack Russell mix and the sweetest little angel you will ever meet. Nugget on the other hand is a mini Dachshund and has zero respect for me but is so damn cute, so I can't ever be mad at him.
Some fun facts about me:
- My go to starbucks drink order is a grande iced matcha with sugar free vanilla
- Home >>>> going out
- I have a reading goal of 2 books per month (plz send thriller and romance recs)
- My TV will almost always be turned on to a Bravo show
- Target, TJ Maxx and Homegoods are the “errands” I am always running
- I bring true lemon packets with me everywhere because I can’t drink diet coke without it

“5 stars isn’t enough! I was suuuper picky when it came to booking a wedding/engagement photographer. My parents photographer had lost ALL of their photos and I hated not being able to see pictures of their big day growing up. It definitely added pressure as to who I was going to pick and feeling confident that I could trust my photographer. Rachel exceeded all of my expectations!! She’s truly amazing to work with. My fiancé and I had so much fun during our engagement shoot with Rachel. She went absolutely above and beyond. She has an eye for detail and understanding your vision. If you give her freedom to be creative, you will not be disappointed! It was so much fun to collaborate on ideas and see her art come through her photos. I cannot wait for the wedding day and all of the beauty I know she will capture. Rachel will be our go to photographer for all of the special moments to come in our lives! If you’re thinking about it….do it!!”

She is the ultimate cheerleader, friend, friendly and calming presence, and I am so glad that my now-husband and I booked her for our wedding.

It was supposed to rain all day on our wedding day, and Rachel was so flexible with our timeline and plans to make sure we got the shots we wanted.

I will definitely book Rachel for any of our future photography needs and I would highly recommend her for any couples looking for a photographer for their big day or any occasion!”
“I can't wait to work with Rachel again for whatever reason. She was my wedding photographer and she helped me stay calm and was just better than I could have imagined. She made us feel so comfortable, and confident. She feels like a friend taking your photos, hypes you up, makes you feel awesome, gives super clear instructions and makes sure you got every shot you want. She was very responsive, communicative and helpful in the planning process of my wedding and photo timeline. I didn't have a wedding coordinator so that was so helpful. I have and will continue to recommend Rachel to anyone looking for a photographer. Thank you so so SO much and I really can't wait to work with you again soon.”
“Rachel is an absolute dream to work with! I knew as soon as we spoke on the phone, she was going to be amazing and she proved to be just that during our engagement shoot. On our wedding day, she exceeded any expectation I had. She is bubbly, the best hype man, articulate, and, most importantly, you can tell how passionate she is about photography and making everyone comfortable and look their best.
