Rachel Ludwig Photography | Abbotsford Family and Child Portrait Photographer bio picture

Welcome to Rachel Ludwig Photography!

Come on in, grab a cup of coffee (or in my case, that would be a non-fat, sugar-free vanilla, earl grey tea misto) and take a browse through my site. This is where I share images from recent sessions, post updates about Rachel Ludwig Photography, and sometimes I even sneak in a few pictures of my own family.

Want to know a little bit more about me? I've been married to my husband Tim for 11 years, and we have three loud, crazy and fun kids: Ethan (7), Arden (3) and Hudson (1). I also love to take pictures. I'm a lifestyle portrait and wedding photographer based in Abbotsford, BC and I photograph a little bit of everything, including babies, bellies, families, engagements, boudoir and weddings.

Oh....and don't be shy! You can leave a comment, pop me an email or use the contact form at any time. I promise I don't bite. :) I'd love to hear from you!

Marta & Szymon

This engagement session was soooo incredible. From getting to spend time with two lovely, genuine, and truly kind people, three beautiful locations that made me fall in love all over again with this amazing part of the world we live in, and wonderful weather with the most beautiful sunshine..I couldn’t have asked for a much better way to spend an afternoon ‘working’. This is why I love what I get to do for a job!

I had over 750 (!) images to edit, and it was so hard to narrow them down, and even harder to pick some to post on the blog…these two were super photogenic, and I don’t think either of them could take a bad picture!

I’m really looking forward to their wedding in April in Tofino, I know it’s going to be amazing.

Thanks again for a wonderful afternoon Marta and Szymon, I look forward to seeing you in Tofino on your big day!


Anyone recognize this location? North Vancouver is perfect for some urban shots.



I’ve been playing with texture a bit (as you will notice on a few images from this session), and I just love the depth and detail it adds to these photos.

Be sure to click on all the horizontal images, and especially the storyboards, to see them bigger. The sun was just amazing, and despite it being mid-January, it was nice and toasty warm outside.



The trees here were just incredible, and I love how the light filtered through them so perfectly.


I almost *did* kiss the ground (see image below to get the inside joke! :) ) we hiked on (literally, we were little mountain goats scampering over the hills at Whytecliff Park), and I almost biffed it a few times with my camera in hand. Fortunately we all escaped unscathed and with some great images to show for it. :)

I think this may be my very favorite of the session. I can’t decide if I like it in color:

or black and white better. What is your favorite?

And one more to share, just because I was having fun trying a few new things and Marta and Szymon were such good sports for all my different requests :)
