Meet Rachel

Hey, I'm Rachel!

I grew up in the Chicago area, and capture love stories and life in both sunny Southern California and the Windy City. Over the years, I’ve worked in a variety of creative fields — including fashion, styling, and branding. My work is heavily influenced by all these experiences. I approach each wedding with an artful eye for details, composition, the emotion of it all, and of course...the fashion! 

You could argue I’m a hoarder of personal mementos. I’m super sentimental and save every hand-written letter I receive. I believe photos are best enjoyed when they can be held in your hand! I can’t even count how many times I’ve flipped through old family photo albums, or admired the wedding photos that hung on my grandma’s wall. 

I accept a limited number of weddings each year, and take a super personal approach with each of my couples. I’ve been told my superpowers are making people feel extra comfortable in front of the camera, and being ninja-level discreet during wedding receptions! 

favorite things:

Anthropologie + OAT MILK LATTES

Beyond The Camera

My husband Karl is my creative partner in crime. He is a writer, director, and dad to our kiddos Leah and Jaxon.  


I’m obsessed! New Zealand and Japan are two favorites that I can’t wait to go back to one day!


Watching a movie or unwinding with a great book are two of my favorite ways to relax. Past Lives and Tick, Tick, Boom! were some of my more recent favorite films.


I love trying new restaurants and coffee shops and could eat
brunch all week long.

I believe your wedding photos should not just document the day, but capture the emotion of it all.

Relive your day
