a little bit about me

and my life on the south coast

& THe new forest

I fell in love with photography when I studied it during my a-levels and then went on to shoot my first wedding when I was 18. Like so many I faced the head heart pull when I left school and decided to get a “sensible job” in graphic design and assisted wedding photographers at the weekend (weekend-warrior). Eventually I put my big girl pants on, took the plunge and left my 9-5 to launch Rachel Elizabeth Photography in 2015. Fast forward a decade, this has been the best decision, following my passion for photography and getting to know my clients, so I can truly capture their personalities and the distinctions that make each person uniquely them.

When not shooting or editing, I am a full-time tortoise mum and I can be found out enjoying a sunny bike ride, weight-lifting at the gym, drinking super strength coffee or devouring ALL.THE.FOOD (especially puddings – I’m a massive sweet tooth, as well as a Cheese lover because cheese is life!). My dedicated drinks cabinet is full to the brim of all different types of Gin - You can’t beat a good g&t! I am a social butterfly and value the quality time spent with friends and family. I love planning new adventures with my Husband Chris (my silver fox) although currently very busy renovating our new little home in Burley.

Here’s to love, laughter, and capturing your happily ever after. Please contact me here, I would love to hear about your big day and how we can work together to capture your love story.
