I'm Rachael! I'm a Nashville, TN wedding photographer and destination wedding photographer. I believe that nothing is better than a scoop of chocolate chip cookie dough. I love a good pair of yoga pants, a messy mom bun, and long walks through Target. I believe that weekend brunch dates should be a monthly occurrence, and also should be heavy on the mimosas. That taco Tuesday's go hand-in-hand in a well-lived life, & I think my husband is the funniest person I know. 

I believe in the kind of love stories our grandparents shared. I think that preserving moments and memories in photos for you to look back on for years to come is my God-given calling. I want to tell the story of your family and create beautiful artwork to hang on the walls of your home.

                late nights, Netflix binges, and real conversations. You believe in family, love each other hard, and are the first people on the dance floor and the last ones off. From the moment you see your fiance at the end of the aisle through teary eyes, through the time you exit celebrating as husband & wife, I will be there to document each precious moment.

Does this sound like you? Then I want to meet you! Contact me now,

From our first meeting over coffee (or cocktails) I want to hear how your love story began. I want to know when you fell in love, the story behind the shiny ring on your hand, and how you envision your perfect wedding day.

let's meet!
