"now at last they were begining Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read; which goes on forever. In which every chapter is better than the one before."
C.S. Lewis

Each love story is different. I never photograph one couple the same as the last. Your love story is unique and that's something I absolutely keep in mind when I'm photographing your portraits. I'm all about connections and emotions, and that's something I strive to capture through my lens. Your engagement session should be fun, exciting and memorable. This is such a sweet and intimate time in your lives together, you're only engaged once- and while this time might be stressful and hectic, you should savor each moment. This time is going to fly bye so quickly that you'll easily forget to cherish it.

Slow down, be present, and enjoy each day of your engagement fiercely. 

what to expect: 

Expect to have a lot more fun than your anticipated. I always hear from couples that they're nervous to be in front of the camera, they're awkward or they don't photograph well. Do not worry about this; I make it my #1 goal to get you two comfortable and relaxed- this is why I never limit my time spent with couples, consider your engagement session us hanging out as friends. I want to photograph your relationship and the moments that mean the most to you two. I want you to look through your images and go "YES. This is us!!". 

so,  shoot me an email and tell me a little bit about your selves. I believe to photograph a couple best, I need to fall in love with your story and your relationship the way your friends/family have. send me some selfies too, it's always nice to put a face to a name.

sweet words from past couples:

"Rachel is by far one of the best photographers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Getting to shoot with her and have her capture the love I have for my fiancé was an absolute dream. She not only made us both feel so comfortable, she also made it so fun! I spent about 5 days squealing over every picture she took!! I would recommend her over and over and over again. It was an absolute joy and blessing to get to work with someone as talented, kind, and beautiful as Rachel!"

- Andie + Cooper

"This was the first time that we have been professionally photographed and we could not have asked for a better experience! We went into the shoot, feeling nervous about being in front of the camera, especially not knowing Rachel at all! However, she greeted us with a smile right from the beginning which instantly made us feel more comfortable. She gave direction with ease as her creativity and passion for photography really shined through! We could not stop ourselves from smiling and laughing the entire time, everything just felt so natural!  We have already gotten so many compliments on our photos and will be recommending Rachel to all our friends and family! Thank you again for a wonderful experience!"

- Kelly & Tyler

"We had so much fun with Rachel getting our engagement pictures! She's an excellent photographer but
what makes her stand out is her love for people and her ability to read them. I'm really outing and my
fiancé is more reserved. She used our personalities to customize our shoot and make us both comfortable.
We had such a good time we even decided to get a hotel room and spend the weekend hanging out."

-Rachel Brumley

"Joel and I had an absolute blast with Rachel. I was afraid we would feel awkward or that the photos
wouldn't capture our true personalities, but WOW was I wrong. I love them all so much and am so
grateful for her energy and passion for capturing such an exciting time in couple's lives. Not only do I
LOVE the way they turned out, but also she got them back to us super quick. Totally recommend this lady!!"
-Shae Synder

"Rachel is a very skilled photographer with solid vision and excellent aesthetic. I found her page while
searching for Ann Arbor-area photographers, and the tones of her photos completely blew me away. From
inquiry to final photo gallery download, she remained responsive, easily contactable, and professional. I would absolutely recommend Rachel's photography if you're looking for a fairly priced session and one of a kind photos that beautifully play with natural light and tones."
