welcome to HARP & OLIVE

hi, there!

Nashville, TN  DESTINATION wedding PhOTOGRAPHER, family & lifestyle photographer

You've poured your heart into making your wedding day everything you dreamed of. I want to give you timeless images that last a lifetime. You know how couples want beautiful, classic wedding photos with a unique and personal experience? Yeah, we do that. 

I'm Rachael! I'm a Nashville, TN wedding photographer and destination wedding photographer. I believe that weekend brunch dates (heavy on the mimosas) should be a monthly occurrence. I love a good pair of yoga pants, a messy mom bun, and long walks through Target. Preferably solo, but often I have one of my three children in tow. I believe that nothing is better than a scoop of chocolate chip cookie dough, and even though I hate to admit it...nothing feels better than your body after a good workout.

Let's go chasing light and scrunchy-nosed smiles for the most romantic images that tell the story of your wedding day.

I want to get to know you throughout this process. Your love story is so important to me. I will definitely cry with you on your wedding day. Oh, and if you need a dance floor hype girl, count me in.

I live with my handsome hubs and our three kiddos in Nashville, Tennessee. I believe in images that capture emotion and hang on the walls of your home.

marrying their best friend.

Wedding photography for romantic couples



Loren, bride

We used Rachael for our wedding...and the photos turned out absolutely amazing!!!! The pictures are everything we dreamed of and more! They are absolutely stunning and we are so in love with them!

Rachael captured our Engagement session, my Bridal Portraits, and our September wedding. She helped calm my nerves in the months building up to our wedding, and answered all of my crazy bride texts! My husband and I felt to at ease and could be ourselves around Rachael. Her photos are breathtaking! She definitely will be our photographer for all occasions through life!

Ashlee, bride

Rachael did an amazing job. She was easy to work with, flexible, and passionate. She was committed to making sure I had the absolute best shots to treasure for years to come.

let's work together!

4. Is Marrying Her Best Friend

5. Beyond Pretty Pictures

Will start her day in Converse and end the evening laughing away in her favorite heels. Is a hopeless romantic and believes in the timeless love stories of her grandparents but equally loves modern tales beginning with a swipe right. 

Loves familiarity and believes in carrying family traditions through generations. She can't wait to share hers with her children someday. Her something old and something new are family heirlooms or precious gifts from a best friend.

Loves to start the day relaxing at brunch making memories with girlfriends, and is just as happy to spend the day tailgating and cheering for her favorite team. She is sophisticated but loves to get down on the dance floor...and legit can't wait. 

Planning her dream wedding is a joy, but nothing compares to the excitement of spending forever with her guy. She loves his cheesey jokes, the twinkle in his eye, and the safe comfort in his arms. 

Knows that with weddings come beautiful photos, but truly wants an unforgettable experience that she didn't know she needed. Believes in the value of a printed photo to hang on the walls of her new home, and wants more than digital photos to share on social media. 

Does this sound like you?
