I'm Rachael, a wedding and portrait photographer in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
A few key things you should really know about me are that I’m patient, easy going, I laugh a lot and I do everything with my own approach. That last thing is very important to me.
I also have a habit of following my intuition all over the place. When I started at NSCAD in 2007 I had no idea where art school would lead me, let alone where I am today. It just felt like the right place to be back then.
That’s how I got my start with weddings too. I stumbled upon this career after responding to an ad that was posted in the NSCAD photo department. Oddly enough the fact that I had never shot a wedding still didn’t make the task an intimidating one. I quickly realized I have the right personality and approach for wedding photography so I rolled with it.
After eight years of weddings I can happily say I still find this work very fulfilling, rarely stressful and always amazing because of the emotional connections I witness between my clients.
Some of my favourite things in life are:
Hiking (or any time spent outdoors really)
Patio beers in the summer
Music. I really love creating playlists and you can listen to them here!
