Rachel Bayne Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to Rachel Bayne Photography…

    I have loved photography since I was at least in the 3rd grade and got my first camera for my birthday that year. I took that little 210 film camera everywhere I went and have been capturing the world around me ever since. I love being a photographer. From weddings to families to senior portraits... it's all so much fun! If you have a question, click on the Contact button above. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I do. -Rachel Bayne

Keri and Sara: May 29, 2010

One of my best friends from college, Sara, married her sweetheart Keri on a *beautiful* day in Sonoma, Ca, at the truly amazing Cornerstone Gardens. I have never been to Sonoma before and now I can’t wait to go back! The countryside is so crazy beautiful… Sonoma square is filled with beautiful buildings that hold fantastic shops and restaurants… I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful place to photograph a wedding!

Sara is a super organized and detailed oriented person. She and Keri planned every little detail perfectly. Their wedding planner said they were dream clients and I agree! I could go on and on with all the amazing details but I’ll let the photos do all the work.

I’m so happy that Sara and Keri found their perfect match… I can’t wait until they have kids or to hear about all their amazing trips around the world that they all will be taking together. I am so lucky to have them as friends and to have photographed their wedding.

A quiet moment in the barn before the ceremony…They had watermelon bellinis and peach champagne for their guests as they entered the ceremony site.Sara’s niece Jessie was so cute running around and hugging Sara and Keri all day!Oh, Omar!I couldn’t do this if I practiced for years!Mini ice cream cones!Sara, left, and Keri dance to the Black Eyed Peas!Sara’s sister Molly and brother Tim dance down the line!Have fun in Mexico!

Molly and Ben: May 22, 2010

Molly and Ben’s wedding at Fort Worden was FANTASTIC! First of all, I had never been to Fort Worden and was surprised by how beautiful it is. I could have done portraits of them for hours in all the beautiful and rustic spots around the fort. The location for the ceremony was a 10 minute walk up a hill to a beautiful bluff over looking the water. Thankfully the sprinkling held off until just after the ceremony was over. The reception was complete with a band, made up of family members of Bens’, and his young cousin did an absolutely amazing Michael Jackson interpretation. Congratulations to this awesome couple!


Nicole Schleich - Rachel, you are an amazing photographer! I can’t believe you made those old bunkers look so beautiful! I can’t wait to see the rest.
