about rachel

R E A D  M O R E

Hi there! I'm Rachel. I live in the gorgeous state of Colorado with my husband, Johnny, and our pets Millie and Miss Marple. When I'm not behind the camera, you can find me at arts and crafts shows or hanging out with friends. I'm addicted to anything chocolate - although I'm trying to work on my sweet tooth! I grew up in Alabama where winters don't quite exist and southern charm fills the air! I have a little sister who's not so "little" anymore - we're finally done arguing over sharing clothes and now we giggle over inside jokes. I have a giant laugh that is probably unnecessary but I'm unable to change it (I've tried)! My elementary classmates joked that I would die laughing - and I plan to keep it that way!

I serve the great state of Colorado - particularly Denver, Boulder, Keystone, Breckenridge, Fort Collins, and Colorado Springs. Not located here? I am happy to travel!

My clients love the soft, romantic and timeless look of film and recognize the benefit of investing in the art of photography.

Engagements and weddings are my main focus. Love always looks better on film!

I also specialize in portrait sessions for other creatives, high school seniors, and anyone looking for updated photographs of themselves.

Rachel is AMAZING! Not only do we looove our photos but the overall experience was amazing. Rachel is great at directing those of us who aren’t exactly comfortable in front of the camera. The best part is she has the most infectious enthusiasm when taking photos, you feel like a model! I can’t recommend her enough!

Rachel, you never disappoint! I have had several shoots with Rachel and they've all been wonderful. She makes the experience fun and relaxing. She is very knowledgeable and made great suggestions with outfits to help create the perfect picture. She got our photos back to us pretty quickly. She is great to work with and very creative!

Rachel was so amazing and fun to work with! I was looking for a photographer in the Denver area, and was stunned by her photography displayed on Instagram- I knew I had to contact her right away. She was so pleasant to work with and really creative with location ideas. My pictures couldn't have turned out more perfect! She's a wonderful photographer and I will happily continue to work with her and suggest her to others.

WE ABSOLUTELY LOVED OUR EXPERIENCE WITH RACHEL! WE NORMALLY ARE NOT PDA PEOPLE AND OUR SHOOT WAS DURING GRADUATION WEEKEND SO THERE WERE A LOT OF PEOPLE OUT AND ABOUT, BUT RACHEL MADE US FEEL LIKE THE ONLY PEOPLE AROUND. SHE WAS SO ENERGETIC, FOCUSED, AND PERSONABLE - IT ALLOWED US TO BE OURSELVES AND HAVE FUN IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. JACKSON JUST GRADUATED AND IS HEADED OFF TO LAW SCHOOL AND I HAVE ANOTHER YEAR AT AUBURN, SO IT IS INCREDIBLE TO HAVE SUCH SWEET PICTURES OF US IN THE TOWN WE BOTH LOVE AND FELL IN LOVE IN. THE PHOTOS TURNED OUT PRECIOUS, WE LOVED EVERY SINGLE ONE. THANK YOU SO MUCH, RACHEL, WE WILL CHERISH THEM FOREVER!

I TALKED TO RACHEL MANY TIMES ABOUT THE IDEAS I HAD FOR MY WEDDING PHOTOS AND SHE WAS VERY IN-TOUCH THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE PROCESS. THE ENTIRE DAY WAS A BREEZE. WE LOVED HER AND SO DID OUR WHOLE WEDDING PARTY WITH HER FUN, ENERGETIC AND BUBBLY PERSONALITY. SHE MADE EVERYTHING SEEM QUICK, ENJOYABLE, AND FUN. I WAS DYING TO SEE ALL OF OUR WEDDING PHOTOS AND I KNEW IT WOULD TAKE SEVERAL WEEKS OR A MONTH TO RECEIVE THE WHOLE GALLERY. I WAS SUPER EXCITED WHEN I ACTUALLY GOT MY GALLERY A WHOLE WEEK EARLIER THAN SHE HAD PROMISED! Y'ALL THE PICTURES WERE MINDBLOWING - MY MOUTH WAS SORE FROM SMILING SO MUCH. RACHEL MADE OUR WEDDING SEEM LIKE A STORYBOOK. I WILL FOREVER BE THANKFUL FOR THE AMAZING WORK SHE DID AND SHE WILL BE MY FOREVER PHOTOGRAPHER!

Absolutely loved working with Rachel!! I have admired her work for a while and the photos she presented to us were even better than all the others I had seen before!!! My only problem is that I'm definitely going to have buy some more frames...I want to put all of our photos on display!!!!

I CANNOT EVEN BEGIN TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH I ENJOYED SHOOTING WITH RACHEL. IF I LIVED IN THE DENVER AREA, SHE WOULD BE MY GO-TO PHOTOGRAPHER FOR EVERYTHING. I FOUND HER ON INSTAGRAM AND REACHED OUT TO HER ABOUT DOING A FASHION SHOOT WHEN I WAS GOING TO BE IN TOWN FOR THE WEEKEND. FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, I COULD TELL HOW WONDERFUL SHE WAS EVEN JUST THROUGH EMAIL. WHEN WE MET FOR OUR SHOOT, I WAS WELCOMED TO THE CITY WITH HER SWEET CHARM AND WE HAD SO MUCH FUN SHOOTING AND WALKING THROUGH THE CITY. I AM IN LOVE WITH THE QUALITY OF THE PHOTOS AS MUCH AS I ADORED HER. THEY WERE EXACTLY WHAT I WAS WANTING. THANKS RACHEL, YOU'RE SUCH A DOLL!

THERE IS NOT A BETTER GIRL TO TAKE YOUR PORTRAITS. RACHEL IS THE SWEETEST AND KINDEST PERSON I'VE EVER MET. SENIOR SESSIONS WITH RACHEL AREN'T JUST PICTURES, IT'S AN EXPERIENCE. I'VE NEVER FELT BETTER ABOUT MYSELF, NOT TO MENTION SHE'S EXTREMELY COMPLIMENTARY AND FUN TO WORK WITH. I LOVE MY SENIOR PORTRAITS AND I COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR A BETTER PHOTOGRAPHER!

MY BIGGEST FEAR BEFORE MY PORTRAITS WAS THAT I WOULD LOOK SUPER AWKWARD BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO POSE. THIS DID NOT COME TRUE AT ALL! RACHEL HELPED ME POSE AND MADE THE POSES LOOK LIKE SOMETHING I WOULD NATURALLY DO! I HAD SO MUCH FUN DURING MY PORTRAITS, IT'D BE HARD TO PICK OUT A FAVORITE PART. I LOVED THE VARIETY IN THE PICTURES. IN SOME OF THEM I WAS LAUGHING AND IN OTHERS I HAD MORE OF A SERIOUS FACE. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND RACHEL TO ANY OF MY FRIENDS!! SHE MADE ME FEEL SO COMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. RACHEL GAVE ME SO MANY DIFFERENT POSES AND REALLY CAPTURED MY PERSONALITY!

I HAVE DREADED SENIOR PORTRAITS FOREVER, BUT RACHEL MADE IT SO FUN! I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD BE COMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF A CAMERA, BUT SHE MADE IT EASY AND WAS VERY FUN TO BE AROUND! NOT ONLY DOES SHE HAVE A BRIGHT PERSONALITY, BUT SHE TAKES AMAZING PHOTOS. I AM SO HAPPY WITH MY SENIOR PORTRAITS AND AM CONFIDENT ENOUGH TO SHOW THEM OFF. SHE HELPED ME FEEL GENUINELY BEAUTIFUL WHILE STILL LOOKING LIKE MYSELF AND I COULDN'T BE MORE SATISFIED WITH THE PICTURES I RECEIVED!

MY BIGGEST FEAR ABOUT MY SENIOR PORTRAITS WAS PICKING SOMEONE WHO WOULD OVER-EDIT AND MAKE ME LOOK FAKE OR NOT LIKE MYSELF. LUCKILY, THIS DID NOT COME TRUE! I LOVED HOW SIMPLE YOUR EDITING WAS AND HOW I STILL LOOK LIKE MYSELF. MY FAVORITE PART OF THE EXPERIENCE WAS HOW YOU WERE OPEN TO LETTING ME PICK WHAT KIND OF PICTURES I WANTED. I RECOMMENDED YOU TO MY BEST FRIEND! I TOLD HER YOU WERE VERY SWEET, EASY TO WORK WITH, AND AMAZING AT WHAT YOU DO!

I WAS AFRAID I WOULD LOOK AWKWARD BECAUSE I'M NOT A MODEL AND WASN'T SURE HOW TO POSE. RACHEL GAVE ME POSES AND INSTRUCTIONS THAT MADE MY PORTRAITS LOOK NATURAL AND NOT FORCED, WHICH I'M THANKFUL FOR! MY FAVORITE PART OF THE SESSION WAS WALKING AROUND AND DISCUSSING ALL THE DIFFERENT PLACES TO TAKE PICTURES. I LOVED THAT THERE WERE SO MANY DIFFERENT OPTIONS! I HAVE ALREADY RECOMMENDED RACHEL TO MULTIPLE PEOPLE! SHE IS EASY TO GET ALONG WITH AND COMFORTABLE TO BE AROUND.

Rachel helped me plan everything out for my proposal: from where to how. She went above and beyond her responsibilities as a photographer and was very accommodating. She's absolutely incredible and my proposal wouldn't have been a success if it wasn't for her.

HAVE A LOOK AROUND...
