I am a wife to my sweet husband Christopher Lazarus, a mother to a beautiful little girl named AnnaLee Grace and dog mom to my sweet Nala. I have the absolute best family in the world that are my biggest cheerleaders and motivators.

Photography came in a season where I was searching for my purpose in this life. I found myself a new stay at home mom to a daughter with some serious medical problems. It was then that I asked the Lord “what is my purpose in this life”. Later that week I had a dream of picking up a camera and being extremely joyful, two days later I bought my very first camera and haven’t put it down since. Photography is my absolute passion, with every potential client I find myself saying a lot “it is such an honor to be on this journey with you”. Every every beautiful bride or family that books me, I get so excited that I get to be a part of capturing moments that you will cherish for generations to come.

When my grandparents passed in 2021, I will never forget my mom and I sitting around their dining room table looking at pictures throughout their life. We saw pictures from before they started dating, them dating, their marriage, them having my mom and then them becoming grandparents. I was able to sit at that table with tears streaming down my face because I, as their granddaughter got to get a snapshot of their life through images. I sat there and realized, that is why I am a photographer, I have the absolute honor to capture moments for you that you will cherish, but not only for you but for your future family.

love letters

“Could not recommend Rachel enough!! She captured the whole day so perfectly. She is so easy to work with and communication was never a problem. Not only is she so, so talented, but she cares about her clients and values their input and vision! I got to work with such a sweet person while she captured beautiful pics that we will treasure forever.”

“Rachel has been nothing but a JOY to know and to work with. Above all, she is kind and encouraging. She instantly became a cheerleader and friend. As a soon-to-be-bride, wedding responsibilities can be overwhelming - but Rachel has a calm demeanor that is contagious.
