Hello, there! I'm Rachel and I'm a Wedding Photographer based in Nashville, Tennessee. I'm a half Italian, natural curly head and lover of all kinds of ethnic foods and hole-in-the-wall places. I love puns, weight lifting and my orange tabby Mr. Darcy. You should know that I am a huge Lord of the Rings nerd (I have Arwen's Evenstar necklace) and a crazy Star Wars fan. So, my life goal is to visit all the movie filming locations in New Zealand and own a lightsaber.

The Lord is my main man and the center of all that I do and my faith is incredibly important to me.

I've been photographing weddings for 8 years and I am 100% self taught. Google, YouTube and the local bookstore were my teachers and going out and shadowing other photographers gave me hands on experience. I dabbled in college twice. Yes, twice. I started right after high school for a few years taking random classes and then attempted to start again shortly. But, I realized that being a Wedding Photographer is what I know is what I'm called to be.

I got into wedding photography because I love...

... (you thought I was going to say 'love love,' huh?) I love people, the connection and chemistry between two people absolutely and insanely in love with each other. I love the stories of the couple, how they met to how he proposed and anything else they want me to know. Photography is way more than just taking pretty photos, it's understanding the people and knowing the stories behind them.

Still no idea if I'm related to Vince Lombardi... yet.
