Hi, I am Rachel Hayton.

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

I have photographed all sorts, I don't limit myself to the typical labels of being a 'commercial', ' wedding' or 'landscape' photographer, I am all those things and everything in between. I've photographed many wonderful couple's weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries, pets including meditating horses (yes, you read that right), families, newborns, interiors, food, et al, usually 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 and wonder, that tell a story, that make you smile or cry (happy tears) I want the images I give you 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 in your home or on your website 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 upcoming press releases and I cannot be happier! Rachel has a true talent and I recommend her to anyone wanting a business portrait shoot doing!”
