HELLO!

My name is Rachael Alexandra. I am a freelance photographer based out of Victoria, B.C.

I am located in BC most of the year, however I often spend my summers traipsing around my stomping grounds in Tokyo, or exploring Ontario with relatives. I am open to photographing anywhere in the world! No place is too far.

Photography is the way I express myself. I love playing with shadows and light. I love capturing memories and special moments in my life. I love everything about taking photos and freezing moments in time.I am constantly mesmerized by the world and the people in it and I want my photography to be a reflection of that beauty.

My photography is built on three pillars: PASSION | CONNECTION | EMOTION. I want your photos to be representation of your story- your passions, your emotions, and unique expressions. I want my photos to show genuine connection- to the people you are with, to the earth, or to yourself.

I don't expect you to come to photoshoots with a perfect outfit, perfect makeup and perfect poses memorized- I expect you to come just as you are. I invite you to be vulnerable with me, ready to open up, share parts of your story, tell me about what you love- trust me- your inner beauty will shine more than any outfit will.

I can't wait to meet you,

Rachael Alexandra
