Need a photographer to

capture your next show?

Hey there

I'm a San Francisco-based photographer who specializes in portraits and events and adores aesthetics that are bold and cinematic. I love empowering people through photography and turning the ordinary into works of art.

Sound like something you'd be into?

 

I got you.

As a person who rarely even looks in the mirror, I was extremely nervous about having my picture taken at all. Rachel was very professional. I felt at ease with her. She made the entire experience fun. I felt like she understood me and was able to allow me to relax resulting in the best photographs I have ever seen of myself. She just has that special eye for catching moments. I would highly recommend her!!!

In my photoshoot, Rachel really captured my personality in the photos! She made it so fun, too! Whatever attitude YOU want to convey, she can make it pop!

I've had a number of shoots with Rachel, and she created pure MAGIC each time! While her end products are phenomenal, she makes the photoshoot itself just as enjoyable. From her creative eye to her patient commitment to capture the perfect shot, the entire process is a joy.

There is no one else in the Bay I would even consider shooting with other than Rachel. She is as good as it gets.

I was stunned when I first saw Rachel's photos of my band after a gig at the DNA lounge in SF. The venue had hired her and I wasn't expecting to have photos taken during the show that night. Once I saw the photos I was in awe at how she saw, and captured, the performance. I've never felt more confident and connected to images representing something I care about so dearly.

She was so humble and made my band realize we can actually enjoy photos taken of us just being us! I normally hate getting my picture taken away from playing instruments (or at all) and am self conscious about my body. Rachel made me feel supported, comfortable, and just wanted to have a good time shooting me being myself.

Her direction was subtle and welcomed. The images she captured completely changed the way I feel about myself! I can't imagine working with anyone else. Rachel is not only incredibly chill and pleasant to work with, she'll help make you realize you, as you are, is completely all it is about <3
