IMPORTANT NOTE: This pandemic is affecting all of us. Physically, mentally, financially. I want to help in any way that I can, so here's what I'm going to do:

1. Retainer fees used to be 30%; I'm cutting that in half. 

2. No date required to book me. There's so much uncertainty right now, and as a "non-essential" business, I can't legally work. So you can reserve my services (capping this at a set number to make sure I have enough availability), and then once we get to the other side of all this, we'll find a date that works for both of us. 

3. If your wedding has been cancelled due to the pandemic, please reach out to me for a special discount on my services xx

Hang in there, everyone, and stay home. We'll get through this together.

If anyone needs to talk things through or hear a friendly voice or ask for advice, I'm right here: hello@solarroseco.com

Plenty of people have opinions about your wedding. They want it to be perfect...but it's their version of perfect: 200 people,  big venue, parading you around like an uncomfortable show pony.

What everyone does.

but you aren't "everyone,"
are you?

but you aren't "everyone," are you?

here's the thing:

Here? We're all about breaking the "rules", sidestepping the expectations and conventions, and living the life YOU want. 

Doing something a little outside the norm if that's what makes you happy. Doing something that makes the people around you raise an eyebrow here and there.

Getting questions, getting "looks."


And doing it anyway.

"Just because something is traditional is no reason to do it."

-Lemony Snicket

Instead of a big "show," instead of being held hostage by other people's expectations, instead of going along with what's expected of you "because someone said so"...

my name is Rachel

I'm a Washington-based elopement photographer, and folks...I have a lot of feelings about it. On your elopement day, you deserve a photographer who gets it, who's been there, who's in your corner (hi, that's me). not someone who sees your day as "less." 

My partner and i eloped too, and it was spectacular.

I'm the "B" in LGBTQ; all love is love, and you are so so welcome here, my darlings xx
