Meet Rachael! I had the honor of taking this sweet, fun, courageous lady's head shots a few weeks back. If you are looking for an Event Coordinator or Florist -- check her out! (link to her site is at the bottom of this post).I love photographing others -- because I can capture beautiful ordinary moments in their life, BUT ALSO because I get to know them! I feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to get to know this lady and look forward to working with her more in the future!Enjoy the photos and the tidbits about Rachael and her business mixed throughout! P.S.-- this dress! Such a gift to photograph!! I am a sucker for florals and dresses.
Rachael is laid back and positive. She has said herself that she believes "anything is possible and we can make anything happen." Rachael works hard for her clients -- and has fun while doing it! Its obvious that she loves her job ;-)
I am a young female entrepreneur and artist... and I just gotta say, it is so encouraging to see other young women like Rachael who are also choosing to follow their dream... step out on a limb. And leap.
Owning her own company has always been a huge dream for Rachael After few years with a college internship in the floral and event industry, and then coordinating a few friend's weddings and creating their floral arrangements, Rachael saw her dream even clearer!
Rachael Ann's Event Design was born!
I believe it is important to surround yourself with positive people... Rachael's energy is contagious. She has a calm confidence about her as well -- positivity, passion, confidence, and a calming nature are exactly what you want surrounding you on your wedding day! (Or really any event!)
One of Rachael's favorite part of her job is the people she gets to meet. She loves building relationships with her brides and continuing those friendships even after the wedding! She's pretty sweet. ;-)
Rachael and I about flipped out when we stumbled across this wall by accident during her session! Perfect for a floral designer! (Also, as a child it was my dream to either have my portrait painted in a huge field full of flowers of all different colors or surrounded by a hundred cats...HA! ... I'm pretty sure taking Rachael's picture here was the closest thing ever to that childhood dream coming true!)
Rachael worked with me on a shoot recently -- one of my favorite bridals to date!! -- Stay tuned to see some of our collaboration :-)
