Raquel has been working as an editorial, portrait and lifestyle photographer for over a decade and has been featured by Bridal Guide Magazine as the top wedding photographer in New York. Her work has been published and collected in Europe and the US.
Raquel’s photographs are relaxed, effortless, and intimate. Whether a small family get-together, or a large black-tie destination wedding, her subjects seem to be completely unaware to the presence of the camera, yet the shots are beautifully composed with elegance and simplicity. Her personable, easygoing manner puts even the most camera-shy person at ease, and allows her to authentically capture intimate feelings and moments at any event. The resulting images are spontaneous, fun and romantic.
A life-long world traveller, who got her start as a photo-journalist, she is both fast and always, intuitively, telling a story. She captures the most special moments with a delectable blend of freshness, warmth and glamour.
Raquel's work has been featured in: Martha Stewart Weddings, New York Magazine, New York Sunday Times, Style Me Pretty, Town & Country, PDN, and the Discovery Channel.
“A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.”
