Hi! My name is Rachel I am an elopement photographer based in Portland, Oregon and travel all around the Pacific Northwest to photograph elopements. I specialize in authentic, earthy, and natural photos. I am a photographer for all and proudly stand with the LGBTQ and BIPOC population.
I live in SE Portland with my husband Brodie and our mischievous rescue cocker spaniel Oliver. We spend most of our free time exploring Oregon and working on our house. We are currently renovating our entire house – head to toe. Our favorite places to go in Oregon are the Oregon coast, the Columbia River Gorge, Mount Hood, and Bend. I would love to go to the Alvord Desert, the Wallowa Mountains, and Mount Rainier one day for an elopement.
I moved to Portland in 2013 to be closer to my sister and quickly fell in love with the mountains and the forest. I feel the most at home when I pack my car with camping gear and my dog and drive to find somewhere beautiful to spend the night. This is actually how I got into shooting adventure elopements and weddings. I was hiking and camping and exploring so much that my clients started asking me to help them plan their own trips. From there it grew… I’d be honored to help you and your partner find the perfect spot to get married. A spot that suits you best.
