Welcome! I'm Rachel, the photographer behind Rachel Langlois Photography. I’d love to take a moment to share a bit about myself and my background with you—we all have our own unique journeys and I hope you enjoy hearing about my journey and that I have the opportunity to hear about yours!

I did not start out as a photographer—in fact, my degree is in English Literature! Right now I split my time between photography and teaching high school because I am equally passionate about both. I believe that my experience as a teacher informs and benefits my experiences in photography—and vice-versa! I have always been involved in the visual arts and took various visual design classes all the way through high school. While I had considered majoring in Visual Arts in college, I didn’t believe I could make a living as an artist and instead pursued what I considered to be the more practical route towards a career. Later on, I pursued an endorsement as a K-12 visual arts teacher and spent a few years teaching in art classrooms. It is there that I truly began to rediscover my voice as an artist and creative. Currently when I am not working photography jobs, I spend my time teaching in a project based learning program where I get to teach and share ALL of my passions with the young leaders of today.

I love portraiture and the way a photograph can really capture the true person and their personality. I love collaborating with clients and artists alike—my joy of photography comes from my interactions with others and the ability to create something truly unique. The best moments for me are when I get to witness the surprise, joy, and pride on a client’s face after I reveal an image that speaks to their soul. I most often find inspiration in the “ordinary” moments—particularly when I see the beauty in my clients that they don’t always see in themselves. 

My family is a big part in my life, and I think this shows in my photography. I am drawn to images that show true emotion that will have lasting impact. It is truly an honor to be a part of preserving those special moments for my clients so that they will have printed images that they and their families will treasure forever.
