DC Wedding Photographer

Timeless Images with a memorable experience

I know wedding days are the culmination of everything you have put into it. The groundwork has set the stage to the first memory you will have together as Mr. & Mrs.- your wedding day! I take the time to get to know my couples, and their vision for their wedding day so that I may capture it exactly how you want to they want to remember it. This means I am working with you on timelines, outfits, locations, posing, and even details that emphasize the two of you.  The connection I build allows me to approach everyday empathetically and truly feel the emotion there, resulting in images that truly capture the feeling of it all.

My Approach

My Style

I am inspired by the timeless things in life- movies, books, music- things that truly evoke emotion. I incorporate this inspiration in my work as well. I find a mix of artfully guided images, the careful attention to planned details, and candid moments that happen between you, your family, your friends, and your new spouse create a classic gallery that can be relived for ages to come. My images are light, crisp, and romantic - which means they will be beautiful no matter what year you look at them. You can find me sneaking in moments on film to add a fun touch to your gallery.

"Rachael traveled to Hilton Head to do our engagement pictures and my family’s family pictures which was SO awesome and they all turned out incredible. She made Tim and I feel so comfortable during the shoot and it was so much fun. We had a blast and the pictures were wonderful. I’m so happy we found Rachael and that she came to take our pictures"

"Rachael loves what she’s does, that’s important. The difference between Rachael and other photographers is that she puts love into her work and her clients. The photos are obviously stunning, but working with her is even better. She will be my photographer for the rest of my life."

"Words don’t even come close to how great it was to work with Rachael! She was instantly a great fit for us. We reached out about doing our engagement photos in Walt Disney World- the Boardwalk Resort. Rachael was super responsive the entire planning process and really listened to what our preferences were and made sure we were comfortable the entire time. She was always prepared and ready to answer any questions I threw her way. When she sent over our photos I knew we made a great decision by working with her. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Everyone should consider working with her, you will not be disappointed!"

More Love

"We had a wonderful experience working with Rachael for our engagement photos. She helped us choose a location and time of day that would work in our favor for lighting. She has such a warm and bubbly personality which makes her very easy to work with and enjoyable to be around. During our session, Rachael posed us in so many different ways. I had saved several poses to my Pinterest board ahead of our session but I didn’t even need them because she already had so many poses in her wheelhouse. She delivered a beautiful set of sneak peaks very quickly, and then delivered the rest of the gallery on time. We couldn’t be happier with the way our pictures turned out and our family and friends love them too. We can’t wait to work with Rachael again!"
