the one you've been waiting for

I didn't grow up with a camera in my hand, I never took French in school, and I would have been the first to tell you that I'd never marry a Frenchman. But life has a way of surprising you! So I shouldn't be surprised that I've been photographing people in Paris for ten years now, am a proud apartment owner with my French husband, and oui, je parle français.

hi, i am rachael laporte

An English-speaking photographer based in Paris, France

Her warm and bubbly personality showed from her initial response to my booking request. She made my fiancée and I feel comfortable as she directed us for the best shots we could get. After the shoot, Rachael went out of her way to give us first-time Parisian tourists a crash course of the metro system. Our pictures turned out beautiful and we look forward to linking back up on our next visit!

Rachael was an absolute pleasure to work with! Not only does she have a great eye, but she also knows how to give just enough direction to give your photos that dreamy yet candid Instagram feel! On top of that, she's super warm and friendly. We hit it off with her right off the bat, which allowed us to feel even more comfortable in front of the camera.

Rachael is one of the most amazing photographers I’ve ever met. She was totally friendly and made us feel so comfortable that we just lived in the moment and forgot anyone around us! The images we received were better than we imagined and it really looks like we were the only ones there.

Rachael was absolutely amazing to work with. She was fantastic with our 21 month old (a child that never smiles) and made her smile in her photos. She has a bubbly personality and was committed to getting every shot perfect. We are absolutely in love with them and so happy we have them for the rest of our lives. Thank you Rachael for capturing our memories! We look forward to returning to Paris and getting another shoot done!

Rachael was an absolute joy to work with. She was very enthusiastic and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Taking pictures surrounded by crowds in one of the most populated attractions in the world can sound stressful, but Rachael navigated the scenery like a true pro.

"...exactly what we were hoping for and more!"

Rachael was a blast to work with. She brings enthusiasm, love, and most importantly, care for her shoots. Immediately meeting her, I knew she would be as ecstatic as myself for our shoot. I love that she is heavily experienced not only behind the lens but also with her ideas. She is very welcoming and open to ideas, which made our shoot much more collaborative. Rachael is amazing and I could not be more happier with the results.
