The Wedding Experience


"What an amazing experiencing it was working with Rachel on our wedding day!!! Rachel made the whole wedding experiencing so enjoyable, stress free, and fun!"

I’m Here To Make Sure You Remember Every Beautiful Detail.

Your Job Is To Be In The Moment And Enjoy Your Wedding Day.

You put so much time and energy into creating a wedding day that reflects you and your partner’s personalities and love. And once the big day is here, you should be able to turn it over to the pros and simply enjoy your day – hug the people you love, dance with your new spouse, and soak up the excitement. 

While you bask in the glow of married life, I’m working on the sidelines to make sure you have bright, timeless images to commemorate every moment. I specialize in capturing those raw, emotional moments: your grandfather blowing bubbles as you exit the church, your three-year-old niece kicking up her heels on the dance floor, your partner’s expression of love as you start down the aisle. Those are the memories you’ll treasure for years to come.

And all the preparation leading up to your wedding day? I make that seamless, simple, and fun. We’ll talk through your priorities and list of must-have photos, creating a timeline that includes everything that matters to you. It’s white-glove service with a smile, plenty of experience, and a talented photographer who is more like a friend.

Documenting your love story throughout the best wedding venues in CT and New England

"a pleasure to work with."


"Rachel truly impressed us every step of the way, and we whole heartedly mean it when we say we recommend her to anyone and everyone. We can’t wait to work with her again in the future."
