My name is Rachel. I am based in north central Washington living near the beautiful cascade mountains, but traveling often. I began my career 3 years ago at 18 when I backpacked New Zealand with a camera hanging over my shoulder. I traveled solo-so my camera quickly became my safe place, a voice to inspire me & a tool to create. Since then, I have shot dozens of weddings, a large amount of diverse portrait sessions and landscapes in 12 different countries & counting. My passion for photography is driven by sacrificial love, human connection and my outdoor surroundings. Paired with photography, I also offer that creativity through video, production management, creative directing & teaching/mentoring. I use these other valuable skills and tools to help people bring their dreams, visions, crafts, businesses, and ideas to life. But above every role, title and job description I have attempted to give myself; the one I value the most is an artist. I love to create, capture, document and design and would love to provide you with not only a service, but also a trusting relationship that demonstrates that. Finally, I find deep comfort & joy in writing. Writing has been a way for me to cope with all parts of life & the world. On here, you will find how I collide these worlds into visual & written stories i believe are worth telling. I would love nothing more then if you played a part in the stories to come because everyone has a story worth telling.
