Fun and Laid Back Photos

Haley + Kyle

Rachel was so great to work with. My fiancé and I always hate photos of us together but I REALLY wanted engagement photos. I was a little nervous going into it because I wasn't really what to expect, but she made it so much fun and not awkward at ALL. Even my fiancé who absolutely HATES photos had a great time. We brought our dog with us to include in some of the photos and she was great at interacting with him and coming up with ideas. I was so happy when seeing all the photos! Her photography style is absolutely beautiful and she really knows how to get the best shots. When booking with her she was always quick to respond and gave us some ideas of good photo spots in Northern Colorado. I would 100% recommend her for any photos needs again and again!

She made it so much fun and not awkward at all...

Hey there, I'm Rachel, your Northern Colorado Photographer. I'm a Colorado native, and I LOVE exploring this beautiful state. I'm currently based in Loveland, CO with my hubby, daughter, and pup!

The outdoors is my happy place, and I enjoy hiking in Estes Park and Horsetooth in the summer, and skiing (mostly green and blue slopes) in the winter. Adventure is awesome, but I gotta keep it reasonable! LOL :) 
When my passion for photography and the outdoors intersects, my heart explodes with joy! I LOVE working with families to capture your authentic relationships in a fun AND laid-back way.

SAY GOOD BYE TO AWKWARDNESS AND STRESS my friend. No more hating the camera. No more stressing over the toddler meltdown. You are beautiful, and I cannot wait to help capture you authentically. Real life is truly beautiful.

Are you ready to book?

I love being a photographer in Norther Colorado. Here is why...

I grew up in Loveland, CO. I spent years driving past Lake Loveland, driving up 34 up to Estes Park, exploring Rocky Mountain National Park, and trying restaurants in Old Town Fort Collins. This place is home. 

Being from the area, I know all the great outdoor spots for photography, the unique studios, and  all the great wedding venues. 

I got married at the Tapestry House in Fort Collins, CO, and I had my daughter in Loveland. My family's major life milestones have all happened in Northern Colorado, and that inspires to capture your milestones here!

Weddings, a new baby, or a growing family all deserve to be celebrated, and there is no need to travel far for photos when we have so many gems in our own backyard!
