colorado  elopement  photographer






for the intentional moments in-between




Colorado Elopement Photographer, mom to two energetic boys, lover of Jesus + a good bottle of red wine. An adventurous soul but a homebody at heart.

I love the beauty of nature, true connection, and meaningful conversations. 



Colorado elopements celebrate breaking the chains of tradition and cultivating an experience that is completely unique to you and your love! That’s why it’s so important to me to capture the individuality of all my couples love stories by being intentional during the entire process to connect with not only who you are, but what’s special to you!

"Rachel truly is the best of the absolute best (as a human and photographer!)."

We hired her for our mountain/hiking elopement and she made it all a dream come true. From the moment we hired her, she helped research locations and helped us settle on the perfect place for my husband and I to share our vows. She was always very responsive and gladly answered all the questions I had throughout the planning process. You can tell she deeply cares about her couples and wants them to have the most amazing experience from start to finish. When the day finally came, we all laced up our hiking boots and started on our adventure. It felt so natural having her be a part of our elopement day. If you are at all worried/feel awkward in front of the camera Rachel does an amazing job of making you feel extremely comfortable and will make it all feel natural and not overly posed. She will be there through every step and will make sure everything is exactly how you always imagined by going above and beyond. I know no one else could have delivered the absolutely beautiful photos that she did and we will forever be grateful for her!

She has a gift for bringing out intense emotion through her photographs. I reviewed countless photographer websites and social media channels, and there were so many beautiful images but I've heard horror stories about photographers delivering such disappointing images after having beautiful galleries on their websites. I never once worried about that with Rachel - every single image she has ever captured is absolutely stunning, radiating with emotion you can feel between the couple. The images Rachel delivered from our wedding were even more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. I am so grateful we found her to capture our day - there is truly no one I would trust more. Aside from the insanely perfect images, Rachel also made the wedding day so DANG easy and so fun. My whole family and wedding party was raving about how fantastic she was to work with. She never let me pick the (many) leaves out of my dress myself, always did it for me, and generally just went above and beyond the responsibilities of a photographer. If you are on the fence about booking Rachel for your special day, I promise you will not regret it. You can expect extreme professionalism, help every step of the wedding planning journey, and a person who is genuinely invested in your love and your story!

"We cannot express how incredible it was working with Rachel on our most special DAY!"

We wanted a photographer that captured our love and unique relationship and Rachel did that plus more! She is professional but so friendly that you feel immediately comfortable posing with your partner in front of the camera! We had Rachel capture our engagement photos and were nervous to have intimate shots taken for the first time. She instantly made us feel at ease and guided us through the whole process. Because of that, we knew we MUST have her photograph our wedding day too! She did her research prior to all of our photo shoots to find the best views, timing of sunlight, and different focus points. She makes it an art and a science and we are over the moon with our plethora of photos taken from many different locations! Rachel’s passion for her work shows and she is dedicated to making sure your special love is captured perfectly! We get to cherish all these photos for years to come and show our kids one day the beautiful small wedding we had in Kauai! My only wish is that by the time we have our first kid, you’ll be doing family photos too! Rachel is amazing, talented, sweet, responsive, and goes above and beyond! You will love her just as much as we do!

"Rachel not only understood the assignment- she blew it out of the water!"

When it comes to the most important day of your life, it can be intimidating and scary choosing and putting your trust in a photographer. You want to make sure they will not only take beautiful pictures but will also be able to completely capture the essence of you who two are as a couple and the overall vibe of the day. Rachel not only understood the assignment- she blew it out of the water! The pictures were absolutely stunning (and I mean breathtakingly STUNNING); I looked like the most beautiful version of myself which was something so important to me. She fully delivered on the ability to take amazing photos. In addition to that, I was absolutely floored with how perfectly she was able to emulate the atmosphere, spirit, and love my husband and I shared that day. I mean, you can almost feel the energy through her pictures. A pretty picture is definitely important, but one that allows you to be taken back to the day and the emotions that you felt in that moment is pure magic. Rachel had never been to my venue for my Georgia wedding. You would have never known it, though. Through many conversations prior to the day and her arrival to the site early, she used her artistic eye to quickly choose the perfect backdrops for all of the different photos. I truly, truly could not be happier with the pictures, the whole experience, and Rachel herself. I felt no stress on the day of and completely trusted that Rachel would provide me with what I wanted- she pulled it off flawlessly and exceeded my expectations. I feel BEYOND blessed to know her and call her a friend. I highly recommend her as your photographer, I would book her over and over again a million times. I might just do it all over again so she can take more pictures!
