About the Photographer

Hi! My name is Rachelle, and I am a documentary photographer based in New York City and available for weddings, engagements, and family sessions here and worldwide.

I’m obsessed with light. Sunrises, light reflecting off of water and glass, candlelight, and twinkle lights are some of my favorites, but I’ll take whatever I can get and use it to create something beautiful.

I’m also obsessed with emotion. I’m pretty emotional myself, and while this means I laugh too loudly in the library and tear up at Star Wars trailers, it also means I’m overly observant of the emotional landscape around me. As a documentary-style photographer, I seek the intersection of light and emotion every time I’m behind the lens. 

I have a B.A. in Art with a dual concentration in Photography and Graphic Design from Bridgewater College, Virginia. I live in New York City and travel frequently to my home state of Virginia. I am available to shoot worldwide.
