A THING LIKE THAT
Rachel is a fashion and commercial photographer whose work has graced the pages of VOGUE and Dazed and Confused, amongst others. Her documentary style images are both emotive and contemporary. Yes, she is ridiculously cool, and she is also a wonderfully kind human, and one we feel very privileged to know and work with.
Hello, I’m Rachel! I’m a yoga and gin-based cocktail enthusiast, although rarely do I combine the two…! I’m in love with love, and also a wonderful bearded human person called Tom. We spend a lot of our time together hiking and camping out in the rolling hills, we’re definitely in awe of nature, and I think that comes across in my work. We also listen to music that our friends refer to as ‘just noise’ and seem to like films that my parents describe as ‘arty nonsense’... Lovely stuff.
I’ve spent a decade shooting weddings for couples all over the world in some truly incredible venues. Alongside that, I’ve worked as a commercial photographer shooting fashion and advertising campaigns for huge brands; and documented humanitarian efforts for some of the world’s leading NGOs. These include Penguin Books, Bulmers Cider, Katie Jones, Fashion Revolution, Cowshed, Oxfam and Barnardos to name a few.
My work has been featured by publications such as Vogue, Dazed and Confused, Marie Claire, The Guardian, Refinery 29, The Times and The Huffington Post. I think that all my experience has really shaped the way I work on the day. I have an awareness of what makes an incredible photo, and I really enjoy working with people (and kids (and dogs))!
I combine a natural documentary style with the expertise of a commercial photographer, helping you get the best out of all of the different types of imagery over the course of the day. I’m driven by light, interesting compositions and moments. And if there’s one thing that’ll be in abundance at your wedding, it’s going to be beautiful moments that are worth remembering! I’ll walk around all day, subtly documenting gorgeous things as they happen. From huge milestones during the ceremony, to quiet, heartfelt conversations happening between relatives that haven’t seen each other in a while.
During the portraits, I’ll offer you gentle direction and encouragement to help you feel comfortable and confident. Big or small, I love capturing all the individual pieces that make up your big day. I can’t wait to meet you!
