Photographer, Rachel Dornquast has had a passion for photography since she was a young child. She began doing freelance photography while attending college. During her time in college, Rachel interned with a popular wedding and portrait photography studio in the Puget Sound area. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Arts with an emphasis in photography, Rachel turned her attention to being a full time photographer.
So that was the formal information, now for the fun stuff! I grew up in the Seattle Area and probably because of that I am totally and completely addicted to coffee and more specifically Starbucks Coffee. My favorite color is pink... but you wouldn't know that for working with me because I always dress professional and usually that means no pink (major bummer if you ask me). I am married to the most wonderful man who is the reason I am in Spokane... Although I have to say Spokane and the Inland Northwest sure have grown on me (it's pretty fabulous here)! My husband and I are the proud owners of Lady Dog Dornquast who is a 12 pound little Shih Tzu; I say if Distinction Studio had a mascot she would be it! I enjoy shopping at Nordstrom, spending time outside, and the occasional road trip (when time permits). Most of all, I love being a photographer and I am so blessed to do something I love!
