Rachel &

Hello, we're Rachel Carr and Christopher Arciniega, and we made you a mixtape. We were made in London and Los Angeles, and now divide our time between both sides of the Atlantic.

We’re an ex luxury travel editor and music photographer who've now been shooting weddings together for more than a decade. We first met shooting music festivals, and then our friends started getting married…

We shot our first weddings in 2011, after years of photographing luxury hotels and desert festivals.

Our very first clients were our friends Sophia and Otto, a ceramicist and a filmmaker, who didn’t want "wedding photographers" so they hired us instead (and Future Islands were the wedding band).

We've been shooting for artists, musicians, writers, designers, hotel lovers, jetsetters and other creative, stylish, funny, brilliant people ever since.

Our decade of experience means we're brilliant at collaborating with wedding planners, great at winning over mothers-in-law, skilled at calming last-minute nerves and quick-thinking when things don't go quite to plan. We really, really love our jobs.
