About Rachel

1 trip to Europe every Spring makes my heart happy.


beautiful weddings are photographed every year.


cups of coffee prepare me for the day ahead.


I believe in the importance of iconic images that tell your one-of-a-kind love story and can hang on your walls forever. Your photos should look classic and timeless today, when you share them with your kids, and when your grandkids climb up in your lap to look through your wedding album. 

I graduated from photography school in 2011, and I’ve been capturing the raw emotions and exquisite details of wedding days for lovely couples ever since. Alongside the bright, classic images they treasure, couples who work with me are always impressed by my innate ability to remain calm.

I’ve had the honor of taking photos at some of New England’s most beautiful wedding venues, but Newport will always be my favorite location to photograph gorgeous, coastal weddings. This iconic coastal town has a special place in my heart.

Wedding Photographer in New England

I’m a romantic at heart – which is why documenting love stories is my dream job – and I find my own love story inspires my work. My Greece-raised husband Alex was going to school in Newport, RI while I was working in town. We met and I quickly fell for his incredible smile and for the love he has for his family and friends. He fell for my spirited personality, my adoration of my family and my passion and drive for my business. He proposed to me on a sailboat (my favorite!) on the Rhode Island Sound while the fireworks sparkled overhead on the 4th of July. (Did I feel like I was living in my own Reese Witherspoon movie? You bet!) Over the years, we’ve built a family together – raising our two little ones, spending time on the water, visiting Greece, and just hanging out at home. Whether we’re on exciting adventures or curled up on the couch watching a movie, there’s truly no one I’d rather be with.

Way To Relax

Hot or cold, you’ll usually find me with a cup of tea in hand


I’d rather be on the beach or a sailboat than almost anywhere in the world

The Things I Love Most In This World:

I’m very passionate about making your wedding day feel incredible. From planning your timeline to helping you feel relaxed and confident in front of the camera, I’m here to enhance your experience and capture every memory.

I’ll take care of every detail. The entire process, from our first contact to seeing your dreamy images, is smooth and seamless. And the bright, timeless images I create will live on your walls and in your heirloom albums, taking you right back to the emotions and joy of your wedding day, for years to come.

One of the best parts of my job is making new friends! We’ll spend a lot of time together on your wedding day, and by the time you say “I do” – we’ll feel like old pals, and probably even have our own inside jokes.
