I’m Rachel - a wedding photographer based in Buffalo, Rochester, and the Upstate NY area! I love all things weddings, but mostly that I get to document the most intimate parts of someones big day. It's truly an honor. Telling the story of your day is my ultimate goal, and when it's all said and done, I want you to have amazing memories to look back on. I'm here to give you THE BEST wedding day experience, while also being your party hype girl, and photo advice giver. If you're ready to have the time of your life on your wedding day - LETS GET TO IT.

Imagine waking up on your wedding day feeling completely at peace with a fresh cup of coffee in your hand. You and your spouse-to-be look out from your Airbnb balcony, taking a deep breath knowing that this is the day you've been waiting for. And you get to spend all of it together!
The people you cherish most will be arriving later in the day to grab a drink and toast to two people they have made life long memories with. You both finish your coffee while envisioning your day, knowing it came together in the most perfect way possible.
It doesn't matter if you choose a private mountain top elopement, an adventure through red rock canyons, or a wedding in your backyard, I can help your wedding day be just that – truly and uniquely yours.
What if I told you...
Most people think that having a wedding means that you have to throw a super traditional wedding celebration. Well, I say that couldn't be further from the truth. While big wedding days can be SO MUCH FUN, they are still an event that is centered around celebrating two people coming together in love. So why not treat it that way? I say, plan your big day however you want, and make it everything you pictured and more.
Want to have your closest family there? Let's do it. Want your absolute favorite dish? I’ll find the catering. There are no rules when it comes to planning a wedding, and absolutely no rules when making a celebration about the both of you!

TYler & Merica
She is super professional and clearly takes her job very seriously - I mean, look at her galleries and tell me otherwise! BUT, she is so much fun, she loves candids and making you laugh (and not by saying “ok now pretend you’re laughing” like some photographers do). She really gets to know you on a more personal level, knows what makes you laugh and what will make you genuinely smile, she captures the sweetest and most beautiful moments, and is also all about HYPING YOU UP! You leave and feel sad because you miss her but you feel so happy and confident in your own skin more than you ever could imagine!
"Rachel is an actual magical angel. "
Jess & Korey
5/5!!! Rachel and Michael were both so amazing and professional. Rachel goes through day of expectations ahead of time to ease any stress or questions you might have. They produced such beautiful photos and totally blew us away!
"They made the night amazing and I recommend them to everyone I know!"
Emily & Nick
She shot our wedding and engagement session this year and is great at putting couples at ease during what can otherwise be an awkward experience. She’s very good at communicating what she’s looking for, and then delivers stunning pictures to match that vision. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a wedding photographer, elopement, or any other kind of session!
"Rachel is an incredible photographer and an ever better person to work with!"
