Hi, I am Rachel Hayton.

I am a photographer from the North West of the United Kingdom. I live in Windermere which is in the Lake District national park, it is stunningly beautiful and rural; there are endless fields, rivers, mountains, sheep, cows and of course many lakes. I have two fur babies, Hugo and Tilly, the most photographed dogs in the area!

I've photographed many wonderful couple's weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries, pets including meditating horses (yes, you read that correctly), families, newborns, interiors, food, et al, using available natural light but sometimes when it's required I'll throw in some flash. My style is however, far removed from studio set ups with immaculate white backgrounds and lots of lights.

I have a very useful background in styling and I naturally pay a lot of attention to detail both on my shoots and in the editing process afterwards.

My goal is to create images that evoke a sense of joy, that tell a story, that make you smile. I want the images I create to be cherished for years to come, not limited by a fad style that can date badly. My hope is that they will be displayed and appreciated for being a timeless reminder of the people, places and things you love.



“I took the opportunity to get some portraits done for an upcoming press release and I could not be happier! Rachel has a true talent and I would recommend her to anyone wanting some professional business portraits doing!”
