Meet Austin & Rachel

Austin & Rachel


Hello there! We are Austin & Rachel: 
Sweethearts, dreamers, creatives, doers, parents, 
& wedding photographers.  

Here's our story: 
We never dated, he proposed on a lunch break, 
and we married a month later. 
Crazy maybe, but such an "us" thing to do. 

We love conversation over tacos, loud music, 
& are Winter weekend Netflix warriors.

  We specialize in photographing weddings & natural light lifestyle portraiture. We adore photographing joyful couples who believe that laughter is the best accessory.

Fun facts!

Our Favorite person in the world is our son, Easton! 
He loves to be tickled, loves crackers, and can't get enough of mommy and daddy 
Which we're 100% okay with.

We love our son!

We ask each other how the other is doing based on a scale 
of one to seven tacos. 
One being the lowest and seven being the highest. 
Because seven is practically a perfect number.

"How many tacos?"

It's okay, Rachel didn't know what it was either. He went to school to learn how to build & repair fretted stringed instruments. He is amazingly talented at wood working and constructing things.
 He is obsessed with old tools and can often be 
found perusing the local used tool shop or flea market. 
He is all about efficiency and improving things in his shop. 

Austin is a luthier & woodworker

With the hustle and bustle of life, there is nothing we love more than spending time together as a family. 
Quality time is pretty high up there on our love languages, so whether we're just watching Netflix, driving in the car, or eating, we're happy to be together.

We believe in being ourselves and want you to feel free to be you as well!
We won't ask you to
 “pretend like you love each other”. 
We don't believe in uncomfortable or awkward poses.

That’s because we  know and believe that what makes love stories worth documenting is all the  real moments that will happen naturally because you're in love.

If that’s the kind of experience you’re looking for, we would love to talk to you more. 

We believe in authentic interactions

 "super professional, easy to work with, and awesome about completely authentic moments which was by far my favorite part about our pictures. On your wedding day, you miss a lot of little moments that happen with everyone celebrating with you, that's what your photographer is there for and they were so incredibly perfect and we would recommend to anyone!"

" Rachel is an amazing photographer with an incredibly innate talent! She effortlessly took gorgeous pictures at our wedding that capture the love we have for each other while still being unobtrusive. 
She was able to invoke the best expressions out of us because she made us feel completely comfortable to be ourselves. "

"Rachel is amazing! She is so wonderful an fun to work with... Not to mention her work is breathtaking! There are so many little moments that Rachel captured while we were getting ready for the wedding that no other photographer would be around for or even think about taking. I love how authentic and real her photos are. You will not regret booking her as your photographer!"

"Not only do they take the time to sit and talk about your special day, but also listen to what your vision is and what it is that you want to be captured. But with Rachel, you get a whole different experience! Our wedding day was captured beginning to end by Rachel and her second shooter. We had such a blast with them! Not only do we have gorgeous pictures for a lifetime, but memories of a great day with our two photographers that went above and beyond who were tons of fun to be with!"

THE WHY



For us, we want our grandchildren to look up at the fireplace mantle, see a picture, and know that their grandpa loved grandma very much. We want them to know that love is possible, and it’s okay to let their guard down and fall. We want them to wipe the dust from our family albums and carefully study each picture and see the joy in living life with THE one. 
Moments are fleeting, they're here and then they're gone. Memories fade and the details get lost in the shuffle of life. But a photograph, a tangible photograph, keeps alive those moments for our grandchildren to witness the love on which their family was founded.
