ABOUT RACHAEL VICTORIA
Firstly, I just want to say a quick thank you for visiting my site and taking an interest in my work.
Now, where do I begin?
Blogging & journalism
I launched my first website, which was a travel and lifestyle blog called Lovelytomeetme.com, back in 2016. At the time, I felt like I was finally discovering who I was, hence the name.
I started exploring cities around Europe as a solo traveler and eventually built up the courage to venture further afield. That journey has taken me to over 20 countries since then (some alone, some with friends & family), all while balancing the day job.
Traveling triggered an unquenchable thirst to write. I began documenting my experiences and sharing tales with my small community on Facebook. Within a couple of months my blog was live, and it has been growing slowly but surely ever since.
Fast forward to four years later and I have a journalism diploma under my belt and am a freelance writer for Independent.ie, specialising in branded content. I've created content for brands such as Brittany Ferries, Lucozade, National Lottery, South Africa Tourism, Air Transat, SpecSavers, Supervalu, Taste of Dublin, Irish Cancer Society, Trilogy, and many more.
Over the years my interest in photography and videography was something that grew very naturally. Taking photos for Instagram was always fun, but I never considered myself to be an actual photographer. It wasn't until January of 2020, that I took the plunge and invested in my professional camera. It was truly a life-changing decision.
I can't imagine leaving the house without my camera these days, it has become such a huge part of who I am and what I do. It brings me such joy to capture the beauty of everyday life.
My style of photography is very much boho-inspired. I love earthy tones and beautiful lighting, I also adore photographing people.
My ultimate goal is to work with brands, small businesses and individuals who are looking for someone passionate and creative to collaborate with, be that for imagery, video, or written content. For more info on content creation opportunities click here.
Until next time,
