Rachel encouraged and complimented us throughout the process, it made me feel so beautiful and I believe that beauty radiated in the end result.  Last but not least, she got MULTIPLE photos of our daughter smiling, we have struggled with this with other photographers, however Rachel was able to make it so casual that my daughter showed her true colors and lit up.

I was initially nervous to work with someone that I found online and not through a referral; however, her professionalism and enthusiasm made me feel more and more confident. I was impressed by the way she was able to manipulate the lighting even in dim areas which is key for me when I look for photographers.  Overall, she exceeded my expectations.

Rachel was recommended by a friend of mine, she did our engagement shoot in Joshua Tree and the pictures are all so beautiful. I was super happy with all of them, the color, the clarity. She was able to get beautiful pictures even with my huge bridal squad - I didn't think we'd all fit but we did it! She was super sweet and I can't thank her enough.
