Kind Words from Our Couples
Kelsey + Brett

Rachel is an absolute rockstar! She is so laid back, down to earth, and so much fun to work with. She is so personable and will be sure to fix your hair or remind you to take off your hair tie so you can get the best possible pictures. She has an incredible eye and photography style and always captures the sweetest moments. She was so organized and helped us create the perfect timeline for our big day! She made us feel so comfortable at our engagement shoot and gave us great direction on what to do so we didn’t look totally awkward being newbies to the whole photoshoot thing. I had the opportunity to do my Boudoir shoot with her as a little surprise for my fiancé on our wedding day. She made me feel so beautiful, confident, and comfortable! We could not have asked for a better photographer to capture our love story! Thank you so much Rach! We love you!

Rachel is absolutely amazing! Not only is she incredibly talented and produces some of the most stunning images, but she's so kind and friendly! She is terrific - both in person and through email. She was our favorite vendor to work with for our wedding! She even gave me a little pep talk at one point during the day.
It was like having a very close friend be able to understand your needs and wants for your photographs!

I can't recommend Rachel enough for any photo needs you have! On our wedding day, we got pretty unexpected rain for October in Minnesota during every second we were outside for photos. I constantly found myself looking towards Rachel for comfort and was so happy to have such an amazing photographer with us for these moments. Rachel not only helped calm me down, but got amazing photos done in record time so our bridal party could get out of the rain. She also is down for whatever to get an amazing shot, and was trudging through wet tall grass for our amazing 'golden hour' photos. Not only is Rachel amazing day of, she got our full gallery back to us in just over 2 weeks, which is the fastest I've heard of. We were so lucky to have Rachel with us for our engagement and our wedding, I can't imagine having anyone else with us. She is kind, funny, professional, and extremely talented. Book her!!
