After studying film and photography at Montana State University, Rachel has been practicing photography for over 6 years and pursuing full time wedding and engagement photography for 3. While holding on to a passion for 35mm film and dark room printing, Rachel loves using the same artistic techniques with modern camera technology to tell stories in still life.
Through my practice I've found that photography is not just about the art, or the story, or capturing the perfect moment, but mostly about the people. When you're looking for a photographer for your engagement shoot, or for your grad photos, or to capture your band's debut concert, you want someone who really gets your style and your personality. Making these connections and building these friendships has inspired my life immeasurably, and I'm so glad that I get to experience it every day!
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
From landscapes, to engagements, to marketing, to weddings, I have covered a wide range of photography styles and session types. Throughout all of my sessions, however, my favorite approach is that of a trusted friend. I love getting to know my clients and making them feel heard and comfortable, regardless of whether or not they are in front of the camera.
A fun fact about this photographer
I grew up in a musical household, pursuing cello from the age of 9 and percussion at 12. Along the way I added piano, guitar, ukulele, and bass, and hoped to major in music in college until I discovered my love of photography! Since my junior year of high school I have lived in 6 different cities and traveled across the US on many roadtrips, including one that lasted a month.
