about the photographer

RACHEL

Rachel is inspired by natural light and organic style images. Born and raised on the beaches of Santa Barbara, California, Rachel brings a unique twist pairing her background of relaxed California style and the chic and fashion forward elegance of Paris.

Attracted by the process and artistic approach to film, her interest in photography was sparked when she discovered film through working in a dark room years ago developing black & white prints. Since then, she has used photography as her creative outlet, photographing wedding and events for the past 7 years professionally all over the world. In 2017, Rachel decided to take a leap of faith, moving to Paris to follow her photography dreams and passion for travel and European lifestyle. Rachel has a cool laid back approach and ability to connect and capture timeless images of her clients with ease finding unique moments, often unplanned, and documenting them with style. Rachel finds most of her inspiration from travel, interior design, fashion, architecture and beauty around her.

Rachel’s work has been featured in numerous print and online publications including Style Me Pretty, Vogue Italia, Wedding Chicks, Flutter Magazine, Grey Likes Weddings, Culture Trip and many more..

MY PROCESS

Every love story is unique and has it’s own story to tell. My job is to capture these moments in the most beautiful and timeless way possible. That is why I prefer to shoot a hybrid of film + digital on your day. I work with you to put your mind at ease by directing but also by letting the photos be spontaneous and untimed. I shoot a mix of fine art style and documentary style so I can combine the behind the scenes moments while crafting the most beautiful curated images to create a full story. Each wedding gets my full attention and thought and is customized to your needs.
