self portrait of rachel monteagudo

Rachel Monteagudo

My name is

I’ve always been a creative nerd. From painting birdhouses with my grandmother as a child, graduating with AP Sculpture in high school, to creating videos of my travels around the world ...

I've dabbled in many creative pursuits, but I love the excitement of taking photos of people on their wedding day.

You could say I won the job lottery!

relaxing and comfortable

Working with me is

The most important thing I give my clients is peace of mind.

I frequently switch between candid and posed shots. This will give you the gallery of your dreams while allowing you the freedom to be yourself.

A wedding isn't a photoshoot. That's why I make sure to never get in the way of you enjoying your wedding.

My CLIENTS

.

Love my bright editing style. They want photos that have a light and joyful feel. They get married in places with lots of light and want to take portrait shots outside.

Have a vision. They make choices based on their shared personalities. They are willing to do what feels right, whether than means embracing or bucking tradition.

i almost didn't get married ...

because of a Category 4 hurricane

There are many things that could have stopped my British husband and I from committing our lives to each other — a giant ocean, a five-hour time difference, the bloated visa process or a worldwide pandemic.

After being COVID-restricted from each others' countries in 2020, we eloped to Bermuda. Nothing like a hurricane forecast to *almost* seal our demise. We got so lucky the hurricane passed quicker than expected.

My Favorite thing to take pictures of is

the ocean.
