client reviews 


I can't say enough about Rachel and how great it has been to work with her! She has fantastic photographic skills and a ton of experience but most importantly, she is an absolute pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Her warm and engaging personal style brings out natural smiles and real expressions that capture the essence of her clients. I’ve had several dozen corporate headshots and profile pictures taken over the years and I’ve never enjoyed the process or have been as satisfied with the outcome as I have been working with Rachel.

I worked with Rachel to set up an offsite headshot session for company leadership at a retreat in Seattle, WA. In addition to producing top quality photographs and individualizing the session with each person within the allotted time frame,

Rachel was responsive, organized and helpful in discussing vision and logistical considerations. If you want a solutions-oriented and professional photographer who is willing to go the extra mile in delivering, I recommend you work with Rachel!

The firm I work for recently hired Rachel Alves Photography to update the professional staff photos we have on our website. It was a terrific experience! Rachel and her team were very responsive, professional, easy to work with and the results were wonderful! Rachel was able to create a relaxing and fun environment that allowed her to digitally capture our staff’s personalities. The photos are more genuine and the backgrounds more creative than we’ve had in the past. I highly recommend Rachel and her team and will use her services again in the future!

I highly recommend Rachel as one of Seattle's premier headshot photographers.

She made the process easy and comfortable for me and results were outstanding.

As someone with a fairly high profile in the community her professionalism and skill were very important. Couldn't recommend more strongly!

We hired Rachel to take our team photos for our website.

From the beginning she was extremely friendly, dedicated and creative in helping shape our vision for the photo. She offered a lot of ideas and resources to help brainstorm with us. When the day of the shoot actually came,

she made us feel at ease and was able to capture the natural look we were going for (and she bought us cookies & bagels!).

We never felt rushed and felt that the most important thing

to Rachel was that we were happy with the final shot.

I would definitely recommend working with Rachel Alves Photography!

Rachel is everything you would expect from a first-rate photographer:

professional, personable, and skilled in her craft.

I scheduled a session with her to have my LinkedIn headshots taken,

and I’m thrilled with the end result. She communicates clearly throughout the photoshoot, which makes it an easier process for someone such as myself who normally does not like having their picture taken. I highly recommend Rachel to anyone considering having professional photos taken, I would be happy to work with her again in the future should I need an updated headshot.

As someone who typically runs from the camera, I was worried about having my headshot taken. Rachel erased those fears the minute I walked in her studio. She made me feel comfortable, provided clear direction, engaged me in the process, and produced a photo that I'm really proud to share! She was patient as I asked a thousand questions and I have recommended her already several times.

Rachel is an excellent photographer and a lot of fun to work with.

I had a few ideas for my headshots and enjoyed collaborating with Rachel to get several photos that I can use for social media, my organization’s website, and other engagements. She’s easy going, professional, and has a keen sense for the detail she’s capturing. Her turnaround time with my headshot was exactly what I needed - in my case, it was within 24 hours. Needless to say, I'm extremely impressed and thankful to have had the privilege to shoot with her.

Rachel is the perfect combo in a photographer - amazing technical skills combined with great people skills. She makes you feel at home, listens to how you want to appear, but also makes great suggestions on trying a few new things.

The final shots were even better than I'd hoped for.

I'm super happy with Rachel's work and would highly recommend for professional headshot photos or more casual photos if you need them. 

Karrie Sanderson

Chief Brand Officer at Typeform

Rachel is a creative force! You can tell by the way she moves through the photoshoot with idea after idea building on one another. Even though she's been shooting for a long time, it appears to me that it's just as fun for her as when she first began. She deliver above and beyond my expectations with a handful of very good headshots for all of my marking materials. Bravo!

Rachel is very detail oriented. She has the eye of an artist and perfectionist.

Her studio is bright and airy with tons of natural light.

Her warm and upbeat personality helped me relax on the set.

I highly recommend  Rachel to anyone who would like to

walk away with high quality professional headshots, fun experiences,

and good feelings about themselves. Two thumbs up!

Excellent shot composition and post-shot editing, plus a friendly and charismatic atmosphere. I couldn't be happier with the results. Highly recommend.

I highly recommend Rachel as a headshot photographer.

She provided great advice and support heading into the session and then made the whole process a fun, professional, and friendly experience.

I'm very happy with the results - she does outstanding work.

Claudia Newman

Partner, Bricklin & Newman

I had a great time working with Rachel! She was very professional throughout the whole process: explaining how the process works, scheduling a photoshoot date, the shoot itself, and sending the final edited photos after. I've worked with her twice so far and absolutely plan to do so again.
