I'm Rachael! I'm a Nashville, TN wedding photographer and destination wedding photographer. I believe that one of life's simple pleasures is a home filled with laughter and the delectable smells of food wafting from the kitchen. 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. 

Originally from Virginia, I've called the Nashville-area home for almost 10 years now. After working nearly a decade in the country music industry, doing everything from digital marketing for artists like Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris, to video production with the Academy of Country Music, I decided to take a step back after having our third baby to focus on what I felt God was calling me to do. I jumped full-time into documenting love stories using the gift He has given me to preserve the most precious moments in a family's life.

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!
