My name is Rachel and I am the owner of GOT Photography. I started my business over 8 years ago and it has truly been a dream come true. While I mainly photograph weddings in the Northern Nevada and California area, I also offer travel services. This business is my passion and I want to help to ensure your photos are just as timeless as the memories that created them.

What inspired you to become a wedding photographer?
After just one wedding, I knew that I had found my dream career. It may sound cheesy, but it’s true. I photographed one wedding on a whim and I knew immediately after that I needed to make it my niche. There is just something so magical about the energy of a wedding day, it’s unlike anything else I’ve ever experienced. Each and every wedding is filled with so much love and so many hopes and dreams for the couple. Being able to meet so many unique people and learn about their love stories to then help them to create the wedding photos that they will cherish for a lifetime is such an honor, I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else.
How would you describe your photography style?
I would consider my photography style to be bold, timeless and true to color. I love to provide my client’s with a mix of candid and posed images. I believe that a photographer’s main job during a wedding is to document instead of direct, capturing all of the raw emotion that takes place on such an important day. Whether it’s getting ready with your bridesmaids, the groom tearing up at the sight of his bride or mingling with the people who mean the most to you at your reception. My goal is always to document the authentic moments that matter to you, while also providing stunning posed shots during portraits.
How do you ensure that your clients feel comfortable and relaxed during the photo shoot?
I am always calm, cool and relaxed. You can rest assured during your big day that you have chosen someone who is experienced and can stay collected no matter how chaotic your wedding day happens to be. I have over 8 years of experience and have photographed hundreds of weddings, so no matter what issue may arise, I am prepared to roll with the punches. As much as I love capturing candid moments, I am also well versed with directing when the time comes. You never have to worry about being awkward in front of the camera or being unsure how to pose, I have a number of wonderful prompts and poses that are easy to walk you through.
