Authentic, Vibrant, & Refined Photography

For the once-in-a-lifetime wedding filled with laughter, tears, and loved ones. 
For the sentimental couple who knows the day will go by all too fast.


For the laid-back luxury bride.

I’m a Los Angeles wedding photographer with a midwest heart. Originally hailing from Chicago, I photograph weddings throughout Southern California — from Santa Barbara down to San Diego. 

I’ve honed my craft photographing weddings and portraits in LA for more than 9 years. My wedding photography style is bright and vibrant while still staying true to real life. I believe your wedding photos should feel timeless, natural, and artfully tell the story of your day. 


Hi! I'm Rachel

I MAKE couples feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera. 

"Our wedding was beautiful, and went by all too quickly. Having our beautiful wedding photos to look at truly is the best present that we could ask for; memories for a lifetime."

"We love Rachel!! Working with her was a delight from the day we met. We knew from day one how important our wedding photos were to us, and Rachel definitely delivered. Rachel was without a doubt the easiest vendor to work with. She really got to know us in order to best capture such a special day for us."

"Effortless and elegant...incredible candid shots that conveyed the spirit of the wedding perfectly."

timeless wedding photography

preserving memories

Storytelling is at the heart of what I do and I’d love to tell yours! 

The way you smile at each other as you walk back down the aisle hand in hand, the happy tears of joy, your first dance, the laughter of your closest friends and family, and the stunning flowers that pull together the whole vibe you've been dreaming of — all of these moments help tell the story of your day. I bottle up all of these emotions so you can re-experience the magic of your wedding day over and over again. 

As a seasoned Los Angeles wedding photographer with nearly a decade of experience, I also go the extra mile after your wedding day to make sure these memories last a lifetime. I freeze these fleeting moments in time so your memories can transcend generations and design heirlooms that will become even more cherished as the years go on. 

 Your wedding photographs are your legacy. They tell the story of the single most important day in your life to date. They don't deserve to live in a folder on your computer somewhere. They deserve to come to life in print. 

Dream Wedding Venues

Finding your dream wedding venue is an exciting part of the wedding planning process.  Your venue has such a huge influence on the style of your wedding and will set the tone for all the other details — your flowers, invitations, and maybe even your wedding gown. Do you want a luxury hotel wedding, or something outdoors with ocean views? Or perhaps you prefer a restaurant reception for something less traditional.   

I've photographed weddings across Southern California, and have had the chance to work at some of Los Angeles's most iconic venues. While there are many other amazing options, I'm highlighting a few that I absolutely love.
