Hey there!! I’m Rahel (pronounced like Michelle) – a wedding photographer with a love for design, natural light, soft colors and stunning natural scenery. Using an approach that combines documentary and fine art styles, I capture beautiful, authentic and timeless stories of people madly in love. I full heartedly believe in marriage and happily ever afters… Yes, I’m a hopeless romantic & dreamer!
When I’m not behind my camera, I love to go on big and small adventures with my hubby Adrian* and puppy Leya**. Life is too short to not live it to the fullest! We equally enjoy a good hike, a visit to a sleepy seaside town or a lazy Sunday afternoon, perfectly cuddled up on the couch with a mug of coffee and simply watching the world go by.
Born and raised in Switzerland I met Adrian when I was just shy of 15. After five years of long-distance relationship I followed my heart and arrived in beautiful California with only two suitcases, but a heart full of dreams & ideas.
A few months ago we decided to completely change up our lives and we moved to stunning New England. We found a beautiful 1790s built home, nestled in a darling historical village. We’re in the process of fixing it up – little by little – and we’d love to invite you to follow the journey over on House of Menig, where you can get to know us even better ♥
* Adrian // most amazing husband of six years // my rock, biggest supporter and BFF (I know that’s totally cheesy!) // best Second Photographer on the planet // just an all-around awesome dude and yes, I love bragging about him ♥
** Leya // sweet & fuzzy King Shepherd Girl // born on Fourth of July 2013 // 90lb of love + happiness + wet kisses // my big protector of the infamous UPS guy….. // my office CEO & the one that gets me out in the fresh air every day
Things that make us an AMAZING match!
// You are madly in love with your fiance. Like seriously could-eat-you-alive madly in love!
