"Rachael is so wonderful to work with! Not only is she an amazing photographer but she is wonderful with kids too. She was so patient with our models (age 3 and 5) and worked wonderfully with them, especially with the little hiccups and unexpected challenges that inevitably come up during a photo shoot.
She totally got my vision and executed it through the images so well! I would work with Rachael again in a heartbeat!"

 "Rachael took the most beautiful photos of our family and we are so grateful for them. She was great with our 3 young kids and really captured the silliness and the love. We'll be making this a yearly (at least) tradition. Thanks Rachael!"  -Miranda owner of Whistle and Flute (Family Outdoor Photoshoot)

"Rachael shot my engagement photos and my wedding photos, and I couldn’t be happier with either. Rachael was one of the first plans I put in place for my wedding. My and my husband’s wedding is actually the first wedding she ever shot, but you wouldn’t know that from the photos. They are all beautiful and modern, but in a delightful, wonderful way, not the overdone hipster shots you see sometimes. Even in the early days of her business, Rachael was very professional. About five months before my wedding, she sat me down with a list of planned shots and asked if we had any special requests. She attended our rehearsal to plan out shots, scouted out the area, coordinated with light, planned in case of different weather contingencies, worked with the random appearance of a fire truck, and captured our spirit. Our wedding photos are beautiful reminders of our wedding day, and Rachael was able to display the personalities of the entire wedding party with her whimsical and yet professional touch. Rachael also attended our rehearsal dinner and stayed with the bridesmaids and me the weekend before the wedding, but that part is entirely optional. Not everyone can have Rachael as the little sister of one of her oldest friends. Of course, this arrangement also let me see the care Rachael puts into every step of her process, including arranging her outfit—black, so as to blend into the background, but flexible, so she could get into different angles, and at just the right level of dress. Rachael made my wedding day fun and easy and produced too many lovely shots for me to choose from—all of which she turned around in about six weeks."

 " My Fiancé, Scott, and I had an Engagement Shoot with Rachael a few weeks ago and I must say she captured our new found love so easily. It was a blessing to spend time with Rachael and be totally free to be ourselves - no holding back! Lots and LOTS of kisses! Next... we look forward to having Rachael take photos at our upcoming wedding in October. I have pretty high expectations of photographers in YYJ after shooting with Rachael! "

"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Rachael on many shoots, from style ones to announcing our pregnancy to a treasured mama/baby boy shoot and I cannot even begin to express how amazing she is. She has such a creative eye and the photos always turn out stunning. I’m convinced she has a superpower to make anyone extremely photogenic! She has the ability to put you at ease and get the shot that tells a captivating story. She’s friendly, lovely and incredibly professional. I always recommend her and look forward to hiring her more in the near future!"
