Hi, I’m Rachel!! I’m an elopement and intimate wedding photographer based in Northern California. You can most often find me splitting my time between northern California and Hawaii, but I’m available worldwide!!

I love working with people like YOU!! The happiest humans with a soul for adventure.

You’re here because you want to celebrate your day- your way. Maybe that means an 8 mile hike to an Alpine lake or a short stroll to a seaside cliff. Or it could be running through the city at dusk, perusing the aisles of your favorite bookstore, or creating your dream backyard intimate gathering.

However you’re celebrating, I’m here for it!

I’ll be your number one cheerleader from the moment you reach out! I freakin’ adore my couples and I can’t wait to get to know you too!! Plus the more I get to know you, the better I can capture what makes your love story so special and unique.

And finally, I believe the magic is in the candids. When you look back on your photos I want you to relive all the big emotions, and all the little moments again and again.


Included in your elopement:

-Unlimited communication
-Planning assistance
-Vendor recommendations
-Elopement/intimate wedding guide
-High resolution images with printing rights
-Online viewing gallery
-Drone coverage option
-Me as your hype woman/co-planner!!

"Rach, you already know how much we love you! Your energy, your ingenuity, the calmness you bring to the day simultaneously with authentic excitement. Both Dom and I were absolutely blown away, by you as a person and as a photographer. I am just so over the moon we connected, our day wouldn't have been a 10th of what it was without you there.

Rachel is a dream to work with, and by golly, any nerves that were there at the beginning of the day were honestly dissipated within the first 5 minutes of photos! She makes you feel so comfortable, and how she encourages/suggests you pose for photos is so natural you don't even realise you're posing, just there having a wonderful time with your husband/wife. It felt like a day spent with a good friend, celebrating love and having SO many laughs.

On top of her talent as a photographer, she is just a truly wonderful and genuine person. She asks questions to listen and get to know you better rather than just to respond, she shows sincere kindness like you've been friends for decades, and just feels like pure sunshine to be around."

"I can go on about Rachel forever!! I initially chose Rachel as my wedding photographer because I loved the bright lighting in her photos. I definitely got more than what I bargained for as she is a planner/ photographer/ supporter all in one! Rachel was there for me throughout my elopement process and made the wedding planning so much easier! She’s super easy to talk to and her personality is so bubbly and joyful!

Her expertise on the Yosemite area helped us find the most perfect places to take photos. She knows all the great angles and lighting. I love how Rachel told us how to pose for each photo. She made everything so easy for us.

I cannot express how grateful I am to have Rachel as our wedding photographer as she has been a blessing throughout the whole process. Hire her and you will never regret it!"

"Rachel photographed my husband and I's December elopement in Mendocino, and our engagement photos! Rachel is simply amazing at what she does. The whole experience she provides is extraordinary. Rachel has a unique talent at making you feel so comfortable and yourselves! She got us both out of our shells, laughing the entire time, and most importantly, feeling like ourselves and natural! She has such a positive energy and makes you feel so comfortable.

She also can tell you exactly what to do to get the best photos! We are in love with our photos and recommend Rachel to anyone looking for the best photographer out there!"
