custom canvas wall gallery by rachel manning photography

Are you looking for a San Diego based custom portrait photographer who offers a full range of services, including fine art prints, unique heirloom products, design sessions at your home, and final delivery of beautiful artwork that is ready to display in your home? Are you looking for a photographer who offers both printed artwork and digital files for archival purposes and additional prints for your family?  If so, then we may be a great fit to work together!  I love working with each client one-on-one with the end goal of gorgeous and tangible printed artwork.

It is an investment of you, your life, your memories, and your family’s legacy.  Choosing a photographer is a very personal experience. Why choose me?  Because I love what I do, I never settle for average, and each and every client who works with me receives outstanding customer service.  I strive to capture beautiful and dynamic light, magical moments, authentic connection, emotion, and amazing imagery.  Working with me as your photographer is more than just having your portraits taken – it’s about an amazing, fun and easygoing experience from beginning to end.

With a personalized approach to fine art custom photography, I provide unique story-telling imagery to best preserve your most important memories naturally & beautifully.  I am proud to offer a collection of the most unique and highest quality artwork in the industry.  I am dedicated to creating a personal, custom experience to surpass your photography expectations.

My ideal clients are fun-loving, adventurous, in love with each other and life, and have a great appreciation for images that capture connection and emotion.  They also place a high value on custom photography, exceptional customer service, high-quality prints and heirloom artwork.  I thrive on capturing portraits of families, children, pets, and couples on-location outdoors in nature.

To view some sample heirloom artwork and keepsakes, please go here and click through the images.

I take on a limited number of sessions per month, so please get in touch at least 4-6 weeks in advance of your desired session date.

‘Mini sessions’ are not available in lieu of full photography sessions.  Due to the personal, custom and intimate nature of my sessions, I am unable to provide the same feel and work in a condensed time frame.  I may offer special event sessions throughout the year, and these are offered to past and current clients first.

**Any session taking place within San Diego County but more than 20 miles from 92119 zip code will be charged a $50 travel fee.  I love to travel.  For more information about a session outside of San Diego County, please inquire.
