Rachel sets the bar for talent, expertise, and professionalism; all wrapped up with a warm heart that makes you feel at ease on any special occasion or fun photo shoot. She truly knows how to capture and tell a story through breathtaking images that you will enjoy revisiting time and time again. From first meeting with Rachel for our engagement photos, where she made kissing on camera normal and fun, to our wedding, to maternity photos, and to two newborn shoots, there is nobody else we’d trust our lifetime memories with and we can’t wait for the many more to come. She always took her time getting all of the photos we wanted and really personalized each shoot for us. She was also very quick to send us our photos afterwards and we couldn’t love her more!
Rachel is simply THE best. She took our engagement and wedding pictures, and is now taking pictures of our family milestones. Rachel is fun to be around, efficient and super talented. She knows how to work with children(seriously, she’s a baby whisperer!), she knows the best way to pose her clients and knows how to use light to get the most memorable, timeless pictures. So glad I have these great memories captured by Rachel to look back on in the future!
I am a mom of three kids under five one being a newborn. I used Rachel for a family shoot before and wouldn’t use anyone else. She knew all the tricks to get the little ones (and my husband) to smile. She is so easy to work with. She is organized, quick, patient, and fun! My girls thought we were playing! She got our photos to us very fast and the only problem I had was deciding which to order!!
Our family has had the pleasure of working with Rachel for 2 years now. A little background - we were new to the San Francisco Bay area and I was franctically searching online for the perfect photographer to capture our annual family photos when I came across a friend who "liked" her page on Facebook. I was so excited when I found out Rachel was local and after looking through some of her photography, fell in love and emailed her immediately.
You cannot go wrong with Rachel. She is so sweet and patient with my children and knows how to capture the most beautiful photos. She is so good working with natural light and shoots in some of the most beautiful areas in the Bay area. Due to her experience, she "gets" me - I don't even have to explain what I'm looking for. She nails it every time! And, she's very efficient which is so important when shooting with kids (or husbands:)).
There’s something so unique about choosing a photographer for your wedding. These are the photos you’re going to look back on for the rest of your life, the photos that your children and your children’s children will see one day. When we asked Rachel to shoot our wedding we were absolutely thrilled, and when the photos came back we were so giddy! Rachel went out of her way to scope out our venue before our big day and she was efficient and motivated the whole time. To have the person who captured such a monumental day in my husband’s and my love story also capture the anticipation and joy in my heart as we awaited the birth of our daughter is a gift. It was such a natural fit and once again Rachel seamlessly put together my maternity shoot. I know one day our daughter is going to love looking through these photos!
