Thank you for choosing to have an incredible photography experience and investing in artistry & cinematic imagery — where you're the main character. I'm here to be your hype woman and make this photography experience run smoothly and be the BEST time. :) My #1 goal is to make you feel comfortable so I can capture your authentic self through photos, bringing out your true beauty and sweet candid self.
I grew up in small town rural Minnesota, and now call Sioux Falls, SD home. Being my indecisive self I changed my major 3x throughout college and didn't find my passion for photography until my very last semester of college. Today, I am passionate about documenting the love stories of couples and families and I can never get enough of it!! I love hiking, coffee/tea – NEED my hazelnut medium roast every morning, indie pop music, traveling & exploring new places, game nights with friends, baking & cooking new recipes with my boo, SUSHI, trying all types of new food especially of different international flavors!

"Raquel is absolutely amazing to work with! She is so kind, thoughtful and the ultimate supporter. She always made us feel at ease behind the camera and captured our wedding day so perfectly. We will always be able to look back on our photos and re-live every single moment! I would recommend Raquel to anyone. She is simply the best!"

"We have worked with Raquel on multiple occasions, I had first come across her page on Instagram and we actually had been following a lot of the same people. Shortly after we decided to book her for our wedding day, she was such a fun and exciting person to be around she just made the day so by so smoothly. She worked with us along the way with the time line and making sure everything lined up with the make up/hair stylist. I will forever recommend her and will keep her in mind for any future photography needs."

"I have done several photo shoots with her and every time she impresses me. She made me feel so comfortable and at ease whenever I was feeling self conscious. She gave me tips for before my shoots and prompted me throughout the shoots with fun little games that made everything feel more natural. The coloring and editing style is also GORGEOUS. She will forever be my go to photographer!!"
