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

Jimmy and Paula: Engagement

I met Jimmy and Paula at the Rainbow Run putt putt course for their engagement session which is where they had their first date Jimmy claims he got a hole in one on their date but Paula says mulligans don’t count on a putt putt course! Jimmy and Paula were so much fun to chat with and I can’t wait for their wedding in March.

This is the hole that Jimmy claims he got a hole in one on!


Brian and Kelsey: Engagement Session

My buddy Brian is getting married to his gorgeous fiancée next May in Alaska, where they both grew up. We did this engagement session at Bellingham’s Boulevard Park… one of my favorite places to go when the weather is nice. Brian is such a funny guy… he’s always laughing about something so it was pretty easy to get him to smile! Check out the cute old couple that was walking on Taylor Dock as we were taking some photos… I’m also loving the Tom Brady and Randy Moss jerseys!

Kelsey's Mom (Netti) - Awesome photos! Rachel, you did a great job….although it helps when you have such great subjects, huh?! 🙂

Jill and Joel: September 12, 2009

I think Jill and Joel had one of the best dance parties I’ve seen this summer… complete with wedding crashes, a wedding singer, and of course, my photo booth! Jill did her own flowers and all the plates, utensils, and cups were made out of 100% compostable materials. This was definitely a fun night with a fun couple!

As Joel would say “wedding attire sponsored by Tommy Bahama.”


Heather and Dave: August 29, 2009

Heather and Dave got married at Evergreen Gardens, one of my favorite wedding venues in Whatcom County. Heather did an amazing job picking out fun colors, green and brown, and incorporating it throughout the venue. She also has one of the most loving families I’ve ever met. Did I mention that the BBQ was amazing? It was some of the best food I’ve ever had at a wedding! It was a beautiful wedding… Thanks to Heather, Dave and their wedding party for a fun day!


Borin and Nicole: Engagement Session

I met Borin and Nicole at Owen Beach and Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, Washington for their engagement session. Nicole contacted me after seeing my ad in Seattle Metropolitan’s Bride and Groom Magazine… and hired me after we met! Engagement sessions are always a good time for the couple and I to get to know each other… and it also lets the bride and groom get used to having their photo taken. Borin and Nicole were a lot of fun to talk and work with and it was great going to Point Defiance Park in my home town of Tacoma!


Katrina Rice - How cute u two look together.
