HI I’M RACHEL

I was born in the mystical land of Colorado, and then grew up. Along the way, I went to a prestigious college called the University of Oklahoma, where I learned about important things. But, mostly about student loans. For awhile I taught kids history and how to do art. Then I ended up where I am now. I am now a cosplayer and I am working as a freelance composite photographer in the OKC Metro Area.


While my specialty lies in composite photography, I am equally skilled in other forms of photography and am always open to new creative challenges. Whether you have a specific vision in mind or simply wish to explore the possibilities, I am here to bring your ideas to life.


What is a composite photographer?

I love to think of composite photography as creating a beautiful, one-of-a-kind collage. It's the art of combining two or more images to create a brand new masterpiece. With composite photography, the possibilities are endless, and the only limit is your imagination.


The beauty of composites is that they can be surreal, artistic, and even magical, capturing the essence of your vision and bringing it to life in a way that is truly unique. While I specialize in composites, I am also skilled in other forms of photography, including portrait and event photography.


If you're looking for something truly special, let's work together to create a masterpiece that will take your breath away.

Testimonials


"Rachel is the absolute best!!! I had my first photos taken by Rachel almost exactly one year ago when she took photos of all the guests at a local convention. From the very first picture I was in love! Even at a convention, where there are people all around, and she is just snapping photos left and right, all of the photos were beautiful. Since then we’ve worked together several times, and every time I work with her it’s always an absolute blast! Not only is Rachel so much fun to work with, but she’s also a super hard worker. She shows up with a bunch of poses that she thinks would be good for your photoshoot, and she’s also open to any ideas you have too! Then when you get the photos back you’re immediately obsessed because Rachel has a way of making you feel and look so beautiful. She’s such a talented photographer and a true artist with her editing skill. I can’t wait to work with her again soon! Oklahoma is so lucky to have Rachel in this community."

"Rachel is bliss to work with. She is patient, helps with being camera shy, and keeps things professional with some silliness. 

My absolute favorite is her detailed eye for angles. I’m a curvy person, can’t help it. When I want to do a “cannon” pose of my character, Rachel will position in a way that it looks natural and just like the character. And the edits are beyond words! The photos always come out like a live action movie.

Highly recommend for your cosplay photo needs" - Honey Dev Cosplay
