We’re in this for the long haul and want to be more than just photographers that show up and snap photos. We're all about helping you to feel comfortable around us so your your photos are next level! We welcome your goofy, giggly personality and want to make gorgeous photos of YOU. 

We’re not your typical photographers.

Stuffy sessions are not our thing! We're going to be open, goofy, and fun with you and we hope you'll do the same in return. We value moments over perfect poses and feel that's where your personality shines. We're going to give you the encouragement and space to be yourselves and that, my friends, is where the photo magic lives! 

We’re going to have serious fun together.

Oh no what do I do with my hands?!

You *are* totally, entirely photogenic.

Because this is about so much more than gorgeous photos! We go the extra mile for each and every couple. Rachael will be there giving all the feedback, building timelines, and helping with that family list. When wedding day rolls around you've got your BFF photo squad at your back ready to herd the cats and tote that dress train.

the experience!

We'd love to tell you more about us and how we go about making each and every couple's experience with us amazing.
