“Meeting Rachel at an Art & Community Fair in Turner Valley in the summer of 2009, I immediately knew I wanted her to be our photographer for our engagement pictures. Rachel is a very warm hearted, giving and friendly person with an exceptional talent for capturing unforgettable memories into a photograph.  Rachel captured our vision and style in beautiful engagement pictures taken with our horses and our dog out in the country near Black Diamond.  My husband and I were so impressed with her work, we decided to hire Rachel to also be our photographer for our Wedding Reception at the historical Gunn’s Dairy Barn at Heritage Park, Calgary in March of 2010.  Many of our friends and relatives frequently comment on the stunning photography and I have personally referred Rachel to a number of our friends and family as a result.  Rachel really listened to what we wanted and delivered exceptional quality all packaged into a memorable photo album that we will cherish for a lifetime.  Rachel also put together an amazing DVD picture gallery video of our Wedding Reception accompanied to our favourite songs. Rachel is very passionate and dedicated to her work and to her clients.  She has also become a great friend.” ~ Mila


I have known Rachel for a number of years now and have always admired the artistry and connectiveness that she portrays through her photography.  Her admiration and appreciation for the beauty of our natural surroundings is captured in depth and with feeling in her work, and her pleasant warmth towards others makes for a delightful experience for her human subjects!” ~ Susan


“Rachel is one of the best photographers I’ve used. She has a unique ability to capture those rare and beautiful moments. I used Rachel for the first time during my wedding. She was wonderful and made sure that there was no pressure or hiccups during our special day. The photos turned out beautiful. I cant wait to book her for our next family photo session!” ~ Lori


“Dear Rachel, Thank you so much for lending Black Diamond your time and talents at our Light Up Festival. The photos were the best we’ve ever had! Your generosity is very much appreciated. We certainly couldn’t have Lit Up Black Diamond without you. Happy Holidays!” ~ Quinn Page – Town of Black Diamond
