Wedding Photographer Winchester Virginia

“Rachael and her second shooter, Josh, were absolutely amazing on our wedding day! They were flexible and knew how to work with what was available to take great images. Despite the fact that we were moved to a dark barn basement for our rain site that day, they took some absolutely breathtaking shots that turned out making us look particularly glamorous. Most importantly, they worked efficiently to capture all the little and big moments so we could maximize our time enjoying the party.

– Marissa

“In a tale as old as time, on the day of our wedding, a lot of things went wrong. But when Rachael showed up for the day, it was like a breath of fresh air. She was completely professional, respectful and friendly in the face of the chaos that was erupting in the pre-wedding hours. She captured everything from our wedding, from the absurd to the sacred. The images are stunningly beautiful, and we’re so happy to have them to look back for the years to come.”

– Megan


Who I Am

My name is Rachael. I am…

Equal parts stay-at-home gypsy and restless adventurer.

A lover of coffee in all its forms. No, really. All the coffee, all the forms.

A firm believer that your photos should do more than just remind you of what your family or wedding or pregnant body looked like in that moment. Your photos should remind you of what those memories felt like.

An incurable goofball.

Skilled in the art of pinning a boutonniere, bustling a train, relating to toddlers on a personal level, giving opinions on boys and makeup, and doing anything to get the shot.

A mother, a lover, a friend, a photographer.
