Special elopement packages for the Emerald Isle!


Although based in Washington state, Ireland will always be my first home, and I’m beyond thrilled to be able to share the old country with you on your elopement day.

I help my couples craft an intentional elopement experience without having to mask or pretend. Experiences grounded in gentleness that allow you to relax into it and enjoy your wedding day without judgment or sensory overload. I’m available for Ireland elopements year-round but offer special rates for late summer/early autumn every single year.


Working with me, you’re getting the benefit and experience of someone who was born in Ireland and spent every summer there growing up, who also understands what it’s like to live in/travel from the U.S.

Whether you’re ready to book or you’re still in the investigation phase, you’ll find everything you need over on my website. Details on Ireland elopement packages, articles about eloping in Ireland, how to visit as an American, where all the best places are… I know it can seem a wee bit overwhelming, planning an elopement overseas.

But it really is easier than you think, and I’m here to help you with all of it.

From custom location suggestions to a personalized timeline for your day, it’s a fully bespoke experience. Whatever it is you want your elopement day to be…that’s what you can have. It sounds so simple. So easy. And that’s my goal, really: helping you have a stress-free elopement experience that’s everything you want it to be. Nothing is ever rushed. There’s always time for breaks or spontaneity, whatever you need.

And if you aren’t sure what you want your elopement day to feel like yet? That’s ok too, I’m here to bounce ideas off of and brainstorm. Lean on my experience!

Ireland really is a fairytale place, and I can’t wait to share it with you on your elopement day!


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

I photograph elopements for all love. I exist for couples who just want to get married without pressure or judgment. Every single elopement experience with me includes location scouting, timeline building, a full digital gallery of beautiful images (including landscape images of your stunning elopement location), my “How to Elope” guide, and a roll of film photography. For nostalgia.


Be more than just accepted. Be seen. Be celebrated for exactly who you are. And go somewhere magical to do it.

Welcome home xx

Hire Rachel! We truly cannot endorse her enough. She was friendly and helpful from the start, and incredibly easy to work with. We were on a short timeline, and she came through for us every step of the way, including getting us a permit for our location with short notice. She is thorough, thoughtful, and professional in every aspect of her work. She is an incredibly gifted photographer with a wonderful personality. Finding a photographer that we were comfortable with was a priority for us, and by the day of our ceremony, we felt like we had known her for ages. By the end of our time together, we were in pain from smiling and laughing so much. She truly gets to know you individually, and as a couple, so that she is prepared to capture the meaningful moments of your day. Rachel is professional and talented. She is very laid-back and knows how to make her clients feel special and comfortable. She genuinely enjoys what she does and will do everything that she can to make sure that you are prepared for and happy with what you have planned for your ceremony. She is so good at what she does that the whole process felt easy. We could not have asked for more of the entire experience.

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!!!

Alexis + Kay

Rachel was such an amazing photographer for our elopement! We chose Rachel because of her lovely portfolio and she was incredibly easy to talk with during our consultation. On the day of our elopement, she made my husband and I feel very comfortable in front of the camera and captured some beautiful candid shots. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the location we wanted to elope at and helped us with some of the logistics such as the timeline. The weather was definitely not what we were expecting (rainy and very, very cloudy) so understandably we were a bit nervous about how the photos would come out. However, Rachel worked her magic and we honestly can’t stop looking at all the pictures! 11/10 would recommend to a friend.

Taylor + Dominic

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.

Sara + Kayla

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.

Alicia + Ryan

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.

Gabe + Leigh

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.
