Truly amazing photographer who always captures the best moments. I love her non staged style, her love of real life documentary, her outside the box creative ideas, her ability to catch so much energy in a still photo and most of all her enthusiasm for life!

Ryan Kiedrowski

Rachel doesn't just document your day, she weaves that magical memory of how you envisioned the day to be. It's like she's created a dream you want to be caught up in forever.

Rachel is so great with kids and catching those special moments. A truely gifted photographer.

Taryn Ramsay

We absolutely love the images Rachel captured of our wedding day. She has a beautiful eye and a quiet presence that allows her to be privy to intimate, honest moments. Wedding photos are a wonderful investment, and we are so very glad we trusted Rachel with our day. 

Hi there! I’m Rachel.


I am a born and raised Canmore, Alberta girl.


I’m a mountain girl with a side of prairie love, having spent 10 years living, working and being inspired by the wide open prairies in Brooks, Alberta.

I also have a city side, having spent time in New York City, interning with Magnum Photos and studying at the International Center of Photography.


I studied photojournalism and had intentions of becoming a documentary photographer in conflict zones.


I am passionate about movement, play and being real.


I know all of the hard to get to, “secret”, local, sweet photography spots.


I’m happiest on my bike with my family.


Thanks for submitting!
