Hello! We are Rachel and Zaac Pick. We make authentic and artful images that will remind you of the love and joy you share as you set off on this new journey together.
I've had a camera in my hands since discovering my dad's old film camera as a teenager, using the lens as a way of exploring the world around me. I taught myself how to use the darkroom at my high school and then began assisting other photographers, before setting off to university with the intention of becoming a photojournalist. After studying Communications, English and Art, I realized my love of images could become more than a way of documenting the wider world, it could also be a powerful way of telling personal stories and capturing meaningful connections between people.
I want to be a part of meaningful moments, make images that tell honest stories, and work with people who want beautiful images created out of their connections. This is why I love photographing weddings. Weddings are an incredible privilege to photograph since I get to be in the middle of one of the most significant days of your life—with your closest friends and family, capturing the moments in between glances, details, and meaningful traditions—tearing up along with you and embracing the joy of your day. I also do editorial photography and teach photography to university art students which constantly brings fresh perspective and new ideas into my wedding portrait work.
It's my goal for every wedding to make authentic and artful images that will remind you of the love and joy you share together for a lifetime. I do this along with my husband, Zaac, who is my second shooter and also a musician. We were married on the edge of the continent in Ucluelet, BC and are so thankful to collaborate on many art forms together — pouring our energy and care into the wedding day of every single couple we are fortunate photograph along the way.
We are based in Vancouver British Columbia, though our adventures in photography and music have taken us all over Canada, the USA, Mexico, Europe, and Australia. We love to travel and are always happy to come to you.
