ZELDA FAN + PHOTOGRAPHER
Rachel Leintz is an internationally awarded wedding photographer based in Arizona. Her style is a mix of the gentle editorial drama you find in fashion photography, and the gritty realism that hallmarks photojournalism.
Before she became a highly-sought-after wedding photographer, Rachel worked as a crime scene investigator for the Phoenix and Mesa Police Departments. It was in this career that she learned about the physics of light and the science behind photography. Rachel left the world of CSI in pursuit of a flexible, work-from-home schedule to be with her young son, Wyatt. She took her gentle mindset and passion (and eye) for photography and turned it into a thriving career with an IG following of 20,000 people.
