Meet Rachel

Bonjour, and welcome to my portfolio website. Born and raised on the beaches of Santa Barbara, California, I bring a unique twist pairing by pairing my background of relaxed California style and the chic and fashion forward elegance of Paris. I am inspired by natural light and organic style images.

Kind Words

“Couldn't be happier with our Paris wedding Photos. Rachel is incredibly sweet, her talent is remarkable, her photos are breathtaking, and I would have her take all of our photos if we lived closer. I am so thankful we were able to connect with her for our small Paris elopement.” - Cristen

“Rachel photographed our elopement in Paris! From the moment we met her, she offered such a kind and calming presence. She knew the right angles, poses, and places to takes pictures at.We were extremely impressed with how many photos she captured in our short 1.5 hours together. I highly recommend you choosing her to document your special memories! “ - Britley

“I came to Paris looking for a lifestyle session to commemorate my trip. Rachel is patient and talented and the photos were absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to have to shoot me again with my family in Paris when we come back next year. I can't recommend her more!!!! Fives stars. “ - Alea
