HI, I’M Rachel

{fucking}

so you're probably like "so what if you        
love french fries and say fuck a lot;          
who are you?"         

i mean, fair, and true, but i guess i don't really know  
what box i fit in.     
i'm not really a cookie cutter cut out.       
i don't really follow all the rules;       
i tend to play my own game and i’m willing to bet,    
you’re kinda like that too.
we like that shit around here.
we like that shit a lot.
there’s a lotta cool people out there,
and i’m pretty stoked to have a coupla them landing here

my love language is the bubbles that pop out of the dish soap bottle when you're cleaning the dishes.

so here's the thing about me + my art

my art is about you. 

i don’t care if you choose the magical twinkle lights hanging from the beams of a barn ceiling or if they're strung up in your backyard while you dance the night away with all your favourite people; if it's the bit of light shining in through the dusty window of the courthouse as you take a deep breath and say i do in front of the judge, or if it's the light dancing in your crinkled, happy eyes from the billions of stars in the sky and a bit of the happiest tear running down your cheek as you look at that rad person who you just said yes to for the rest of your life at an elopement in your favourite place. 





the gratitude and pure, unfiltered joy that you are living the life you never thought you could even dream of? yep. that’s what i chase. i chase those moments that cannot be replicated the same way twice, because, boo, that’s you bestie. thats your kickass dream life, and it deserves to be documented.

at the end of the day, the feelings are the same.

 what
 inspires       

you're not my moon, baby—
you're my whole fucking sky.

you inspire me. the love stories that i receive in my inbox. the stories i read on your instagram. the anecdotes i discover while spending time with you two.

you inspire me. your love
inspires me, and that's all
i need to capture the
love story that belongs
to you. that's been
forged through sweat
and tears. we don't
need any other
inspiration; that is 
inspiration enough.

styling and location
also play a large role
in your love story,
and truly, when all
the elements are
perfectly you, you'll
see it in your photos,
and you'll experience
it while traipsing
around wild places
and giggling in front
of my lens.

while pretty much everyone knows the
importance of hiring a photographer for their
wedding day, few actually understand why,
or even choose why they want a photographer,
and what kind of photographer they want.

nope, this is not the case for you. you know who you
want, that's why you're here. you know that you're looking
for a best friend, someone who, no matter the chaos of your day,
will stand by your side and breathe with you, slowly. in through the nose,
out through the mouth, it's going to be okay.
you're looking for someone who gives a shit about you, your lover, and
your fucking day. the one you've been planning for months or years. you want
someone who gives a shit so that you can enjoy your day and know that the
person you trusted with such an important task is doing the job damn well
and making every imperfection perfect.

not to brag, but that is what i do. all of those situations have happened to me, and i am one hundred percent positive they will all happen again. i've done this bitch, i gotchu. everything is still perfect.

also, you should know, once you hit that inquiry response, you have a friend for life. our bestie shit lasts forever — ask any of my past brides!

bitch has got a bestie for lyyyyyfeeeee

them anymore 🙃
'fuck is my
favourite
word (if you
hadn't noticed
yet. sorry mom!)
i use american and european
spellings interchangeably; my best
friend hates that i do this. tik tok by kesha
is my teenage dirtbag song, and you will
figure that out at s0me point in the process
after you book me and by the night of your
wedding day, because i WILL belt it out anytime i hear it.
i'm a virgo, so i'm a big fan of doing the most
with the least, and i'm an enneagram 7w8, so i know how to have fun, and i always do. i'm really sassy, and if you can't take it, you just gotta dish it back. i'm a hopeless multitasker, and probably don't need to be caffeinated, but still am, daily... sometimes multiple days a day, if you catch my drift.
grapefruit and french fries are my favourite foods, though not together lol. will never not brush my teeth in the morning, and then immediately take preworkout, and question my psyche every time i do.
the desert is my favourite ecosystem, but i grew up by a large body of water, and that is so important to the empath in me.

and oh, i take rad pics for rad folks who don't really fit into "regular" boxes. that's my fave fave thing.

goldfish crackers are still
my favourite snack.
