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!
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.
When I am not working I am probably watching Below Deck, reading or on my way to TJ Maxx to get a bunch of stuff that I absolutely don't need.
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 been into photography I was just too scared to take the jump and put myself out there. The idea of having to promote my photos and ask people to trust me with their pictures was terrifying! But once I decide to push myself and do it... it was the best decision I have ever made and wish I had just trusted my gut and done it 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 could go on and on for pages about how incredible Rachel is. We booked Rachel for our wedding that just occurred in September 2022. From planning, to our engagement shoot, to the actual wedding, and literally everything else in-between, she was an absolute pleasure to work with. She does incredible work, and it’s so hard to even pick favorites from all of the pictures because they’re all so amazing. She is so kind and genuine, and makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. If you’re awkward like my husband and I, you don’t even need to worry because she’ll help direct you exactly how to pose and makes it feel so natural. I highly recommend Rachel for your photography needs. She is truly one of a kind, and my husband and I talk frequently about how she was our favorite vendor to work with from our whole wedding."
