Rachel Muscat was born on the 10th March 1987, in the beautiful mystical island of Malta. Since she was very little she was interested in art and used to play a lot with watercolors and paint. Her ability continued to flourish as she grew up, drawing and capturing every little thing that could inspire her. The beauty of nature and the subtle expressions in people’s faces intrigue her a lot and she always tries to capture that little magical moment in life that’s worth all the gloomy days we experience.
This interest in art especially photography amplified in 2004 when Rachel went to MCAST – Art and Design, where she learned a lot of techniques. Her creativity blossomed and she became more meticulous in her work. Rachel believes in the old saying that says that every moment captured on film is worth a thousand words. The spontaneous, natural and instinctive expressions and actions of the people around her are the most inspiring for her. Be it happiness, nostalgy or malincony, Rachel tries to capture all the emotions that are part of our lives and that help us understand our deepest feelings.
The simplicity of nature is another fact that inspires Rachel. Travelling is one of her passions . The sense of adventure and exploration of cities the boundlessness of trees and the breathtaking beauty of the sun are amongst her best shots. From her pictures, you could almost listen to the sound of the waves, feel the warmth of the sun, hear the silence in the mountains , or just sit still and appreciate nature’s true colors. In doing so, she always tries to find new, original and creative ways to give that normal picture an A-list twist and so her pictures are never a rubber stamp.
Weddings are one of her favorite places to be . Her approach to shoot weddings is to keep simple and relaxed . She tries to blend in with guests to capture the spontaneity moments and loves to work with natural light (where possible ) . She mostly shoots in documentary style and love to focus on emotions , mood and the connection between the people . The first look, dad’s happy tears , the funny speeches of the best man , the little naps of children during the ceremony and the crazy dance moves of your Grandma .Through her work you will be able to relive the romance excitement , energy , happiness, laughter, emotions and the beauty of your wedding day , not just for now but for many years to come . Capturing unposed moments as they happen.
Her photography brings smiles on people’s faces, empathy in certain situations captured. Rachel’s photography helps us to appreciate the simplicity of the nature that surrounds us and we often take for granted and remember that it’s the little things in life that make everyday extraordinary.
