Hi, I'm Rachel!

I really, really love taking photographs.
I consider myself a shy extrovert, so being a part of so many exciting moments with a camera in hand is my perfect place to be!

Here's a bit about me!


Fun facts

Huge fan of plants, hot yoga, sour beers + exploring new cities. // Always down to grab tacos + margs or cuddle some dogs.


My story


After being born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, my mom decided to escape the cold and moved down to Florida when I was a baby. Going back home to visit Wisconsin twice a year - for Christmas and in July during Summerfest (a giant music festival in Milwaukee) - instilled a few things in me: my love for travel, excitement at a great concert lineup, a healthy appreciation for snow (with the ability to head back to the beach after shoveling it once) and of course, my love for a good beer.


This love for travel grew and transformed with my sister, our friends, and I setting off on our first backpacking trip abroad after I graduated high school. We visited nine countries, slept in some wonderful + not so wonderful hostels, took trains everywhere, enjoyed the food and culture and carried everything in our giant backpacks. My only regret from that trip was that the only camera I brought was an iPhone 4. The few fuzzy pictures and some good stories are all that remain as the memories fade. To me, my memory is only as strong as the photos I have to back it up - I think that's why I leaned into capturing photographs, to document stories so I always have them with me.

Where are you located/do you travel?

I'm based in St.Pete/Tampa, Florida. I enjoy traveling more than anything and love when clients take me around the state or across the country!

I'm thankful to have traveled to 9 countries, 37 states, 13 national parks, backpacked Europe, road tripped across the US three times, and traveled the California coast. While I've seen a bit of the world, there's still so much more I want to explore!! I'd love to hear about your favorite travel experience during your session!

If you're traveling for a wedding or elopement, I'd love to come alongside you to document your own unique journey and the moments you have along the way.

My sweet rescue pup, Arti :)

I adopted her from the Humane Society after she was found on the side of the road. She is the sweetest dog and will force you to cuddle her. She follows me everywhere, and has joined me on quite a few travels!
