I take fun and joyful photos of people who love each other.
I think weddings are great, but marriage is more important. I make photos for future generations to look at and say, "DAAANG, Grandma and Grandpa were HOT". Weddings are always about the people first, never about my portfolio or a “cool” Instagram. I don’t care if you’re getting married in a church, in a barn, or on a cliff. I don’t care what size you are or what you look like or who you love. Because it’s never about me - are you a good person? Do you love the person you’re marrying? Do you want some dope photos to remember your wedding day by? Okay, let’s talk.
I've been shooting weddings since 2012, so I've seen it all - timelines running behind schedule, storms delaying the ceremony, bridesmaids dresses ripping...I'm prepared for whatever may happen and I'll be by your side to remind you that you'll be married at the end of the night, and that's a pretty great day in my book. Past clients have said that I bring a quiet calmness to wedding days (that and awkward dad jokes).
I've made Knoxville my home, but I shoot all over Tennessee, including Nashville, Chattanooga, Johnson City, and Memphis. Available for travel across the US.
"The second I contacted Rachel about photographing our wedding, I knew she was an instant fit.
I loved her pictures because they weren’t the typical picture you see. I could FEEL and SEE the emotion in them.
After deciding to book her, we had our engagement pictures done. I live in Louisville, KY so we drove down and met her in Knoxville and had an amazing adventure to Max Patch, NC to create some magical pictures! The whole car ride we were laughing and chatting and it felt so natural. The shoot went perfectly and Rachel made us feel so comfortable and at ease. We laughed the whole shoot and she’s not afraid to get down and dirty! The pictures turned out beautiful for our engagement session. And we were SO excited to see her again for our wedding.
On our wedding day, she was an amazingly calm presence. I was so nervous and had a lot of anxiety and everything went so smoothly with her. Our pictures came out beautifully
What I love about Rachel is that she is not just your photographer, but your friend. She’s hilarious, witty, and easy to talk to.
She will make you feel calm and beautiful. I highly suggest booking her for your wedding. You’ll create beautiful memories with her.
Oh and her dad jokes are on point!"

I'm a Knoxville-based wedding photographer with over 100 weddings under my belt. ISFP, Hufflepuff, type 9 on the enneagram, married, dog-mom, natural redhead, and I love food. National parks are my jam and I look forward to long plane rides so that I can catch up on my true crime podcasts. I love to travel and sometimes I feel like on the road more than I'm home. Don't let that fool you though, I'm a total homebody. I'm the queen of dad jokes and I'll text Michael Scott gifs to you if you let me. ;)
