Walking through the streets of NYC is what dreams are made of. One of the last frames we shot before the rain came down after a long fun day of shooting. 🚖 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #rkpengagements #rachaelkoscicaweddings #fujifilm #nycengagement
✨Connection✨ - while photographing I yearn to connect and create a safe space for couples in front of the camera and to inspire to be your authentic self. That’s when walls can come down and moments of connection can be captured in all its bliss & love 🙌🏻 Shooting with Shelby & Charlie at DC Ranch. #rkpengagements #rachaelkoscicaweddings #film #makeart
Flying to New York City to photograph Audrey and Idan’s engagement was one of my most memorable trips, wow! We shot in all the incredible locations NYC has to offer. I can image this photo hung up in their cute little NYC apartment. I had an absolute blast getting to know their story as a couple and making photographs that tell their new story as New Yorkers! And soon to be newlyweds. New York City has a special place in my heart and filled with inspiration. Super honored to photograph their wedding in Scottsdale next year.✨ @audreyhirschl #rkpengagements #rachaelkoscicaweddings

Hi 👋🏻 I’m Rachael, thanks for following along my journey. It’s taken me ten years to get to where I am today. There’s no such thing as “over night success” in my book. Every morning I wake up, fill up my cup (Stok cold brew has been the late) and I hit the ground running my full time photography business. ✨ At a young age I knew I wanted to dedicate my life to becoming a great photographer against all odds and the doubts. By earning a talent scholarship for photography at ASU and earning my BFA, I worked two jobs while growing my business. ✨ Now many years later that dream is a reality. Creating photographs that tell your story and become part of your family legacy is my life’s greatest accomplishment. I’m so glad you’re here, thanks for following along! 📷: @charitymaurerphoto #phoenixweddingphotographer #scottsdaleweddingphotographer #tucsonweddingphotographer
The family portrait. ✨ It’s Sunday and I’m sitting in Logan, Utah surrounded by my family. Over the last few years It’s become tradition that my husband Daniel and I drive up to Utah from Arizona to visit my in-laws, Daniel’s siblings. And during these trips we’ve made some of our fondest memories together. ✨ I like to approach the family portrait with less ‘posing’ and more about capturing the candid, this family moment in time, kids being kids running through the fields and smelling flowers, see what happens and let the photograph unfold before me. ✨ These are the forever family memories I want to capture.
