If we could go back to the '90s and you were to ask my elementary school classmates about me, you'd hear words like "class clown" and "goofy". They'd say, "Rachel's going to die laughing." And, hey, I hope that's true.
You won't find me scaling a mountain or riding rollercoasters, but you could call me a different kind of adventurer - one who left a teaching career to capture people's biggest life moments.
I married my college sweetheart in 2017 and we recently bought a little house in Five Points. You've probably seen us in the yard pulling weeds or taking a lot of breaks on the front porch.
I'm so thankful we were able to move back to my "home" and I'm able to call myself a Huntsville photographer.
I guess you can call me an old soul. I'm an avid antique shop browser and am drawn to anything that resembles having character, age, or patina. My love for the vintage reaches from furniture, décor, homes, to entire cities (anyone else love the old way more than the new?!). This is also a big reason why I incorporate a lot of film into my work.
Now that we have a yard to plant things in, I'm dreaming of creating our very own little English countryside secret garden - with climbing rosebushes and florals galore. I would love to know any tips you may have for a greener thumb!
Just give me a cute little eatery with oysters and red wine! I haven't always been the biggest seafood person, but funnily enough, my friend Courtney introduced me to oysters in Colorado (yes, a landlocked state) - and now I'm hooked! ;)
