Elopements grounded in gentleness for neurodiverse and introverted folks. Relax into your wedding day and unmask without judgment or sensory overload.


On your wedding day, you deserve to show up exactly how you are, together, and be celebrated for it. That’s what elopements are all about.
By choosing to elope, you’re saying no to the weight of other people’s expectations and judgment and yes to the truest expression of who you are.
And spoiler: you don’t need to hike 10 miles to do it.



I’m Rachel (they/them), an introverted, queer elopement photographer in the PNW.

I photograph elopements for all love. I exist for couples who just want to get married without anyone’s shenanigans, pressure, or judgment.

Working with me, you’ll get in-depth location scouting, vendor recs, personalized timeline building, my packed ‘How to Elope’ guide, and a gorgeous gallery of rad photos (both digital and film) that you’ll still be stoked about in 50 years’ time.

Photography is my love language–and I can’t wait to show you just how lovely you are.


Be seen. Be celebrated. Be exactly who you are.

My fiancé Kay and I had such a wonderful experience taking photos with Rachel. We like many others get super awkward when a lens is pointed in our direction. Rachel had a great way of making us feel comfortable enough to be ourselves and was able to capture who we are as a couple. She communicated well with us about what we were doing next and never pressured us to do anything out of our comfort zone. Not to mention our photos came out GORGEOUS! We got them back quickly and we couldn’t believe the quality. We’ve received nothing but compliments about our photos! If you’re looking for an engagement or wedding photographer I’d hire Rachel, you won’t be disappointed!!!

Rachel is so easy to get along with and shoots beautiful photos. She obliged our request for traditional family group shots but she really shines when she is alone with her couple. She rarely gives direction, she captures real people in real moments at amazing locations. And if if your location is less then ideal she works her magic to create a stunning final product. Love, love, love her.

My wife and I had the pleasure of having Rachel as our photographer for our wedding. We had a small, intimate courthouse wedding with just our families. Rachel was there for it all. From getting ready, to the first look, to portraits, to the courthouse to the dinner afterwards.

Rachel was a lot of fun to work with. She just captured us naturally and it really shows in the photos. She never pushed us to take certain photos. It was up to what we wanted and that was awesome. She did a really phenomenal job on being in the right places at the right time.

After our big day I was really surprised by how short the turn around time was for when we got the photos in hand. She did an amazing job at editing the photos and there wasn’t a single photo that needed any further editing. I also really enjoy that all of our photos were made available to us digitally.

Overall I would highly recommend Rachel. She was professional, smart and funny and was exactly what we were looking for in a wedding photographer.

We would give 6 Stars if we could! We loved our experience from start to finish, as well as the edited pictures we received. If you are looking for a patient, kind and naturally talented photographer Rachel is the one to book. She truly loves what she does, and we loved working with her.

Rachel did an incredible job as our wedding photographer! We enjoyed every moment with her, from our engagement shoot to the big day. Her easygoing nature was super helpful when nerves and stress can run high. The photos are amazing quality; she did a great job documenting the day and capturing natural moments. We love looking though them and can't wait to print and hang in our home. She also gave us a couple referrals for both hair stylists and videographer, helping make sure that the day ran smoothly! We'd definitely hire Rachel again, and would refer her to others in a heartbeat.

My wife and I had the most incredible elopement we could have ever imagined. We had an adventure we will remember for the rest of our lives because of them and could not be more thankful and happy.
