Rachael Houser Photography » Wedding Photographer based in Western Kentucky

This is the year I photograph weddings in the Western Kentucky/Southern Illinois area for couples who live hours and hours away but wish to return to their hometowns to celebrate the most important day in their young lives thus far. It would be a lie if I said it didn’t want to travel to them, however I am more than honored to be their photographer no matter where they wed!

Let me see if I remember this correctly… Truett and his family are from Texas, as are Kayley’s mom and her family, while Kayley’s dad and his family are from Evansville. Kayley was raised in Evansville but now live in Texas, which is how she met Truett. It is clear as day that Kayley & Truett were meant to be and I just love how fate and God has brought them together.

Absolutely beautiful

Beautiful pictures!!!!! I am so happy you shared them!!!

When you’ve been emailing back and forth for months and you follow each other on Facebook, you don’t have to have meet someone to feel like you already know them. That’s exactly how Heather and I felt when we finally met each other at the start of her and Eric’s engagement session this past weekend. But you never truly know someone until you spend some real one-on-one time with them and what I learned about spending time with Heather & Eric is that I want to spend MORE time with them!

They attended middle and high school together and are high school sweethearts – my favorite kind! Of course, I’m a little biased seeing as Neil & I were high school sweethearts too. While in college, they studied in Australia and BOY do they have some stories to tell about that time in their lives! They’ve yet to decide upon a honeymoon spot and mentioned that they would love to return to Australia but they just bought their first home – a fixer upper! Funny, Neil & I know all too well about renovating a home! So we chatted about that as well. I am definitely looking forward their wedding later this year so spend more time chatting with Heather & Eric!

It’s been a while since I’ve shot an engagement session in the Patti’s Settlement/Lighthouse Landing area and I was so thrilled that our second attempt at photographing Lindsey & Patrick’s engagement session (it rained the first day) was to take place there! Lindsey has such cute ideas and the balloons, their outfits – it’s exactly what I love to see for a couple’s pre-wedding portraits. Props definitely add personality to photos, for which posing can only do so much.

Speaking of personality! This couple has it! In fact, their engagement story is just what I would expect for them… Lindsey tells it well:

I have a four year old niece and her 5th birthday party was on January 11th. The theme was “Frozen” so Patrick and I came as “the special guest”, Hanz and Anna. We lip sang to “Love is an Open Door”, and at the end of the song Patrick got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. (At the end of the song Hanz actually ask Anna but doesn’t get on his knee, but Patrick did). It was TOTALLY a suprise. I did not expect it at. My whole family was there along with some of my close friends, so it was really special. And I’m obsessed with my niece Chloe so it means a lot that she was a part of it all.

Lori Bailey -

Beautiful photos just like Lindsey these are awesome!!!

Tammy McGehee -

Love these you guys looking pretty awesome

Melissa Jill Bryant -

Love Pat and Lindsey. You are both gorgeous!

After several emails with Heather & Josh, I had a hunch about how great they were going to be to work with. I was so right! When the radar showed signs of rain coming our way, I asked them to delay their entrance into their reception so we could grab at least a few portraits. Josh quickly replied, “Whatever you need Rachael, we’re fine with it.” I could have hugged his neck! Thankfully, the rain held off and we were able to get a few shots in then AND later, when they were scheduled.

Heather, being from Minnesota, had tons and friends and family come to celebrate her and Josh’s marriage. Wow! I’m always so happy to see how loved these couples are and Heather & Josh are definitely blessed by the relationships they’ve made and maintained through the years. I am honored to say that Neil and I left that wedding Saturday evening with a few new friends!

If Lauren & Colby look familiar to you, then you’re probably remembering their Save the Date session back in the winter. For that session, we only did 30 minutes and they rocked it out! You can imagine how rocking their full engagement session was! It makes me so excited for their August wedding! Here’s their proposal story, as told by Lauren:

Colby’s family owns a beautiful horse barn in La Center. This past December, we had plans to go to dinner with our friends. He told me that his brother and cousin were hanging Christmas lights for their Nana and were having trouble getting the generator, which was powering them, started. Our friends met us at his house to go to Paducah for dinner, and Colby said we would stop by the horse barns to see if his brother needed help. When we pulled into the horse barn, the lights came on. I honestly just thought they were poorly hung icicle lights until I got right in front and the lights spelled “Marry Me” all while his brother had the song “All I Want for Christmas Is You” playing. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! I was surely surprised, and definitely said “yes” with no hesitation!
