Hi! My name is Rachel. Thanks for checking out my website! I gave a professional photography biography on the home page, which I'm guessing you've already read if you landed here! So I'm going to use this page to tell you a bit about myself outside of my business.
I was born and raised in the Grand Rapids area, but I also spent a lot of time in Florida when we went to visit family every summer. My "day job" is as a photographer, but my "night job", if you want to call it that, is as a musician. I am a singer/songwriter and musician, and co-front an alt-rock band called Lighting Matches. Our debut album, "Against The Flame," is due to be released in the spring of 2019, and I'm super excited! I've also got a previous solo EP, "Destination Sunday," which you can find on iTunes/Spotify/Amazon, etc.
Outside of music, I love being outside - strolling the beach, hiking, riding my bike, kayaking, and many things I've yet to discover. I love listening to music and going to concerts (of course), having "girl days" with my mom, traveling, and hanging out with my family, my boyfriend, and my crazy cat named Mango.
If you're curious about my band, feel free to check us out! We perform around West Michigan (and beyond) pretty regularly.
