I'm Rachel, the owner of Rachel Renee Photographie. Our company is a growing, small business built on genuine relationships, trust and celebrating the beauty in life. I have lived in Eugene, Oregon for the entirety of my life and have always had an immense passion for photography. I am a proud cat mom, Reggio Emilia trained preschool teacher, adventurer and hopeless romantic. You'll find me in the woods, behind my camera or in front of my computer editing most of the time. I love dark roast coffee, fettuccini Alfredo (I have a list of my top five favorites at all times), FRIENDS, thrifting and creating art in all forms.
If you've been following and supporting our journey for a few years now, you'll know that Bruce and I met when we were only twelve years old and have been a dream team for three years. On our many road trips to destination shooting locations, we sing along (probably too loud and not well, might I add) to our favorite music (we are die hard country fans), probably talk in circles about what's for dinner and laugh - a lot. Bruce has an endless list of stellar "Dad Jokes" that he presents with the most impeccable timing. (I would ten out of ten recommend falling for your best friend.) Bruce is a hard working man who supports my photography journey from near and far; when I'm traveling to a session he's unable to get on the road with me for, I have the greatest, assistant, Mattie by my side.
Mattie is my go to model for the craziest of my creative projects and also one of the people I'm closest to. Bruce has brought me three of my best friends, his sisters; Mattie being one of them!
We can't wait to meet you and share an evening of laughter and capturing your sprit and joy! Our sessions feel like reconnecting with old friends. We seriously thrive on the connections we make with our couples, families and seniors.
We are lovers of love stories of all kinds. We flourish through creativity and creating new, lasting relationships with the kind, people we thank our lucky stars we have the opportunity to create with!
Thank you sincerely for celebrating art & love.
Merci et bonne journée!
Rachel & Bruce
