Today we’d like to introduce you to Rachel Dale.
Rachel, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I got started in photography about 6 years ago after my third son was born. Growing up I always loved taking images and always brought a camera along but it wasn’t till after my son was born that I really dove in, started taking classes and practiced my craft. My business began as primarily family photography and has morphed into a mix between family and wedding photography after I realized my love for capturing wedding days.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Along the way the main struggle has been myself. I am definitely a perfectionist and I love to do things with excellence. I doubted myself a lot in the beginning but I believe that has been a good thing, spurring me on and making me better. I am never going to stop learning and growing and that’s one of the amazing things about photography, there is always more to learn and new ways to grow.
Rachel Dale Photography – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I am a lifestyle and fine art wedding and family photographer. I love to capture connection, real moments and emotion. My goal is to do this with each session or wedding and to capture it with beautiful light. Every image is a storytelling image, I aim to capture people’s lives and feelings, documenting them for them to have forever.
I specialize in family and wedding photography with an emphasis on weddings. I am known for the light in my images and the connectedness of my subjects. I am proud of how far my business has come but mostly I am just grateful. I get to be a part of people’s lives in the most fantastic moments, I get to see the behind the scenes, the raw emotions and the joyous parts of individuals. It’s a beautiful thing.
My goal is to not only capture these things but to be friends with my clients, I love to laugh, cry and be a part of these stories.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success for me in this art form is that each image makes someone feel something. Success is my clients being taken back to their day when they look at the photos and reliving the way that it felt. Success is connecting with the amazing people I get to work with and having their friendship. Success is carefully creating images that can be passed down and remembered.
