Hello, I’m Rachel and I’m a traveling wedding and portrait photographer based in Nashville, Tennessee.
I am also the very proud owner of a Mini Cooper, named LouLou.
I love sunflowers, loose leaf tea, coffee, watching Downton Abbey, American flags, rain, dark chocolate covered espresso beans, movie soundtracks, antiques… Deep Breath… and playing cello. Just kidding about the cello… but I hope to one day take lessons. I love beaches with lots of shells and staring at the star-filled sky in Joshua Tree. Laughing a lot is something I’m really good at. I spend my days day dreaming, planning epic future trips and, on the best days photographing some of the most amazing and sweet people. I love love. I love it so much I think my heart will just burst.
My family is full of medical professionals and military personnel and growing up I wanted to be a Nurse just like my mama but I always had a love for art. I tried drawing and painting, sketching and writing poetry but none of those things had the spark or the excitement that I was looking for. I stopped looking for years until my senior year of high school when I had the choice of taking either a photography class or getting to go home early. I took the class and I LOVED it. Truly, deeply, passionately… the head- over- heels kind of love. If I have learned anything from this it is that you can’t control everything in life… the sweetest things appear before you when you’re not looking.
I hope you love my work as much as I do and I look forward to hearing from you.
