Discover the        Experience

I’ve been a Los Angeles engagement photographer for almost a decade and have worked with dozens of couples over the years. What I love about engagement photography is the laid-back nature, allowing room for creativity and really getting to know each couple that’s in front of my camera.

 Your engagement photos celebrate this moment in time before starting the next chapter of your lives together. I give lots of direction so you’ll feel confident and at ease. The result is natural engagement photos that capture the essence of your relationship. 

Couples portraits aren’t just for engaged couples either! I’ve done anniversary sessions, and have photographed committed couples who aren’t engaged but want to honor their love with a portrait session. 

  • celebrate your love
  • feel natural and unposed 
  • feature a location that fits your vibe
  • will live off your phone, IRL

You want photographs that:

engagement photography — proposal photography — couples portraits

"Essentially what photography is is 


life lit up."

The first step is learning more about your vision for this session through a phone consultation. It's helpful to know what your dream session looks like. And if you've only gotten so far as wanting gorgeous photos that capture the love you and your partner share — that's ok! 

As a full service photographer, I'll have your back starting with the vision, all the way through designing custom heirlooms that will commemorate this time in your relationship. 

01. The Vision

02. Planning

Once I've received a signed contract and retainer payment, we'll start planning! 

The week of, we'll hop on a pre-shoot planning call to discuss logistics and dive deeper into how you plan to use your photos. Whether the main goal is save-the-dates, or a framed portrait for your home, I'll guide you through ways to make these images come to life off the screen (and highly recommend they do!)

03. Capturing Your Love

You've planned what to wear and perhaps coordinated a hair and make-up trial. By the day of your photo session, your only job is to relax and be present with your love! 

I'll give you lots of posing tips so you can kiss feeling awkward goodbye. For gorgeous glowy golden hour light, we'll typically be shooting in the hour or two before sunset — prime time for natural light engagement photography.

04. The Reveal

Photographs from your engagement session will be ready in 2 weeks. You'll come in for an in-person reveal where you'll get to see your photos on the big screen and hand select what you want to purchase. 

We'll work together to design printed pieces that fit your lifestyle and you'll receive the corresponding digital file of all the images you loved enough to print. 

05. Delivery

Your purchased images will get retouched and then uploaded to a private online gallery. From there, you'll be able to download your digital files, shop small prints and share with family. 

I handle all facets of polishing your images and sending them off to print. Think of me as your date night optimizer — I'll handle printing and delivery of beautiful keepsakes while you enjoy a night out.

"After speaking with Rachel for the first time, it was a no brainer to choose her to shoot our engagement photos. Rachel made us feel so comfortable with her calm and laid back persona. The session felt natural, and better yet, it was fun! I would 100 percent recommend Rachel to others - she is a true professional and overall a lovely person! "

“Rachel’s attention to detail is what initially drew me to her pictures. Her pictures are the most beautiful stills of life. She makes you feel completely comfortable and at ease; like a friend you’ve known forever. I couldn’t have been happier with her work”

“Our shoot was fun and lighthearted, and Rachel did a great job of making us forget we were even getting photos taken. We were so happy with our finished engagement photos and will treasure them for years to come.”

Kind Words

We'll bring your engagement photos to life with heirloom prints that celebrate your love. Some popular options include custom framing, save-the-dates, and story-driven albums. All sessions include 1:1 design services.
