Hello! I am so excited that you are here! I am the lady behind the lens, and the one who loves to capture all of your special memories. My name is Rachel, and I absolutely LOVE my job! I have been married to my wonderful husband for 6 years, and we have three adorable little ones. Joshua is 4, Adaline is 3, and Landon was born September of 2018. You will probably see their faces throughout the website as well, since I of course love to photograph them any chance I can get! My husband is a dairy farmer, which means our little family lives on the farm. This supplies many wonderful photo opportunities, as you can see throughout my work that I love to photograph on the farm with lots of different animals. Some of my favorite subjects are our chickens, as you will see.
From the start I always had a camera in my hand, and eventually went to Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo for my photography degree after graduating high school. I started Unique Memories by Rachel during the summer of 2010 in West Union, and have been going ever since. I am an active member of the Professional Photographers of Iowa and the Professional Photographers of America. I am currently working towards my masters in photography through the Professional Photographers of America, and should reach that goal this winter! Along the way, I placed top photographer in Iowa in 2017! I have had so much fun on this journey, and cannot wait to continue improving with classes and competitions.
Thanks so much for stopping; I look forward to meeting and capturing some wonderful memories for you soon!
