Hi, I'm Rachel!

I'm Rachel D. Ballard and I'm so glad you're here! I'm a small-town twenty-something with a heart for documenting wedding days and lifestyle portraits. I love evening rides on our cattle farm ALMOST as much as cuddling up on the couch watching Jeopardy with my husband and our littles, Sophia and Otis. I'm a lover of Jesus, online shopping, and vanilla iced lattes (Dunkin has my heart)! I officially left my 4th grade classroom in 2019 to grow a business dedicated to serving, inspiring, and loving clients like He loves us. If you're here, I'd say we could be good friends! By the way, I promise to never use my teacher voice UNLESS we need it during family formals on the wedding day (it's like an extra tool I like to keep in my bag). :)

My goal is to personally ensure you have a memorable experience when choosing me as your photographer, with a warm smile and helpful resources every step of the way. From the time we set a date to the day I deliver your hand-crafted gallery, I want you to see me as a friend AND service!

If you love fresh, vibrant, and heart-felt images then we will make a good fit. Creating and capturing relationships is the core of my business and I look forward to capturing yours!



"Will and I had never taken professional photos before and were both feeling nervous/awkward. Rachel helped make the experience fun and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. By the time our wedding day came around taking photos felt so much easier and natural... making for a perfect stress free day!"
