Rachel is that ray of sunshine that brightens everyone’s day. Eager, enthusiastic, charismatic — she effortlessly exudes confidence and positivity that inspires everyone she’s around. With a natural creative talent, Rachel is never short on ideas. If she doesn’t know how to do something, she’ll learn it. That’s just who she is.
Rachel was the first creative director for Adapt, a student run ad agency on Ball State’s campus, and she played an integral part in building the organization from the ground up. She managed multiple student teams and fostered an educational environment that allowed our students to improve their skills while solving client problems. Her superior design skills allowed our agency to produce professional quality work for our clients. Rachel was extremely easy to work with and was a very effective leader. She would be an asset to any organization she joined.
My husband and I are so glad we chose Rachel Giese Photography for our Engagement and Wedding day pictures! I cannot stress enough just how easy it was to work with Rachel. She was very professional, creative and made our special days even more enjoyable. Being that we didn't know much about photography, it was so nice to have Rachel help us through the process with some of her own creative ideas...and they turned out wonderful! I still look at those beautiful engagement and wedding pictures on our walls and love that we have captured those moments forever. We will absolutely have Rachel as our photographer for any of our photography needs in the future.
I had the pleasure of working with Rachel during our time together as advertising students at Ball State University. It truly was a privilege to see her come into project work meetings every day and share her passion for whatever it was that we were working on. Her personality and work ethic rubbed off on anyone she interacted with and group members were better because of it. I couldn't be happier to have been able to work and learn with her, not to mention being able to call her one of my very best friends!
Rachel is an excellent photographer! She did my daughter's senior pictures, and they were amazing! She has a great eye for getting the best shot and her follow-up with the proofs was fantastic. I would highly recommend her and will definitely use her again!
“As part of our creative team at BLASTmedia, Rachel showed exemplary skill and knowledge in both graphic design and illustration. In particular, her ability to create character illustrations for a variety of projects was a major asset during her time with us. She would show up eager to learn something new each and every day and demonstrated a ‘roll up the sleeves’ attitude. After spending time working with Rachel, it was clear she truly had a passion for design."
Rachel already had a great portfolio when we hired her, but her work exceeded my expectations. Not only did she use some of our ideas, but she brought many creative ideas of her own. Neither my husband nor I feel completely comfortable in front of a camera, but Rachel made us feel a lot more comfortable. She was able to take great photos of us just being ourselves together. She kept a professional attitude and was incredibly flexible when it came to scheduling. Rachel seemed to know exactly what to do and when as if she had been doing this for many, many years. Hiring Rachel was not only one of the easiest decisions that I made for my wedding, but it was also one of the best decisions I made.
She's an amazing photographer! Makes your day so comfortable and personal!
Rachel did a wonderful job on my son’s senior photos. We had a short window to get the photos taken and printed. Rachel made sure everything was competed in more than enough time. My son didn’t want anything extravagant, yet the result was nothing less! The quality of the photos was amazing. Rachel captured his personality in every shot, so much so that we purchased every shot. She even insisted that he and I take a photo together and I’m so glad she did! Senior photos happen once in a lifetime. I’m so glad we trusted Rachel with memories that will last forever!
