Will you be my Valentine? This is the question most asked around the world today. I have not asked anyone to be my valentine yet because the only people I would wish to be this is my family.
Dear Mom, Everything you do for me is beyond what you should be doing. Sewing, Cooking, Fixing, Helping, Always being there for advice. It’s amazing all of it. I couldn’t ask for a more amazing Mom. You have a heart the size of the world, and I am glad you choose to share it with me.
Dear Dad, Your very genuine advice, and soft heart will always be with me. You cannot make me laugh anymore than you do, with your quiet funny comments. Please keep playing the guitar forever, it is the most magical sound. You are amazing in every single way and anyone who meets you knows that.
Dear Adam, Oh dear brother. You are the best brother a girl could want. You will take care of the girls that I love so much and help them become the most amazing girls ever. I will always cherish all the memories we have and continue to make.
Dear Kelly, A constant source of inspiration. You help me in many ways you may not even know. Being a mother to the most important girls in the world, is a job that I applaud you for doing so well.
Dear Madison, You are a bright, amazing, smart, worldly, beautiful girl. I cannot begin to tell you how proud I am of you. I love that you came into my world, and changed everything in it. A lot of the choices I make, I relate to ‘how will madison see me if i do this?” and I thank you for making me a better person, and help make the right choices.
Dear Sparky Ming Ming, You are my girl. I love you to the moon and back. Your sparky personality has taken my heart and wrapped it all up. You make me laugh and smile everyday even when I don’t see you. I am proud of you for being the strongest, most amazing girl ever.
Dear Dwane, Thank you for being the husband to my most amazing BFF. You are great at taking care of her when she is needing help. You are a strong person and a great leader, and we as well as the world need more people like this.
Dear Kimmy, Oh My BFF, My MSMF. I could tell you that I love you and leave it at that. There is so much amazingness possessed by you where do I start? You’re the most thoughtful, sweetest, caring soul I will ever have the honour of calling my BFF and sister. Sisters are not really a choice, and best friends seem to be and I am SO glad we are.
Check out below some of my amazingly talented one of a kind Valentines created by my sister Kim Roach Design.
So I hope I don’t have to choose one Valentine. I want you all to be my Valentine’s! I love you all!
To say that I feel grateful & shocked at the same time would be a slight understatement. As I read the email from Wedding Bells Magazine telling me that I was chosen as 1 of the 25 Photographers in Canada as ‘Most Inspiring Wedding Photographers For 2013‘ – my mind felt confused. I thought it was spam at first asking my sister to read the email and see if the link worked. I am not sure why the first thing I must do is always clear it with my sister but it is! When she confirmed it was in fact what I thought it was, I was shocked! The group of amazing artists that I was grouped with is awesome! I cannot thank Wedding Bells enough for choosing me as 1 of those 25 artists.
Also thanks so much to everyone who took the time to comment, like, RT, call, email about this! I love and am eternally grateful for the continued support that I am surrounded by.
To see the full article online that shows the full list.
Wedding Bells has described me exactly as I would wish to be. In fact so truthfully that some people have texted and emailed saying that its like they know me personally.

Why we love her: Rachel is the first person to admit she is “totally in love with love” and her cheery, bright and romantic photography style clearly communicates her passion. Her wedding photography style is fresh, spontaneous and fun and she’s not afraid to go the distance capture the emotion of the day and the playful dispositions of her subjects.
Happiest of New Years to all of you! May this be your most amazing year yet!

It is always super exciting to get the news that an event I photographed will be featured. Then to get the news that an event I photographed will be featured IN PRINT. Yep that is pretty exciting! I was ecstatic to get the message from Wedding Bells that Ashley + Greg’s apple orchard wedding would be featured in the magazine for the Spring/Summer 2013 issue. I cannot be more excited to have my hands on that special issue. I was super excited to tell Ashley + Greg that their wedding would be seen in print for the world to see! Thank You Wedding Bells for featuring a wedding that I was a part of!
