Hey, I am Rachel (or Rae if you prefer). I have been doing photography since childhood and professionally since 2017. I have experience photographing weddings, portraits, casual & professional events and everywhere in between. I got my start working as a Student Photographer for Pennsylvania College of Technology, where I work under the Public Relations & Marketing team in an empowering environment. I was doing event photography for the PCToday news source for the college and loved every minute of it.
I hate my picture being taken. I began doing photography, because I always felt like I looked awkward in photos, I couldn't correct myself and I couldn't delete someone else's photos, but they definitely were not what I saw when I looked in the mirror. I have to stop and laugh, I call it self-portraiture, but some of my favorite photos of me are ones that I took with my camera on self timer. Anyway. I know what people go through in front of the camera. I know what it is like to stand there, dreading the end result. My goal in photography is to help people realize that they are beautiful, they are worthy, they don't have to feel "fat" or "ugly". I want women and men to feel empowered, loved, and okay in their own skin. Your personality is the most important part about who you are, what matters to you will drive people who are worth knowing towards you.
I hope you enjoy adventuring through my site. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in a photoshoot or if you would like to get coffee. (FYI I have traveled hours to get coffee, trust me, you aren't too far away)
Stay Strong. Stay Bold. Stay Beautiful. Stay Empowered.
