Meet   Rachael

Many photographer's "about me" section will tell you how they've known they wanted to be a photographer since they were a child. Not mine. I didn't know that's what I wanted until I actually started taking pictures and realized that photography was the creative outlet I had been missing my entire life. Not only am I so incredibly blessed to have this amazing, life-giving business; I'm even more blessed to get to share it with my husband.

I "found" photography when I took pictures for my sister in law and her fiance's engagement and ended up loving the whole experience! I practiced as a registered nurse for years, all the while growing my photography business. In 2013 I was at a point where I could no longer do both and so I had to make a choice and while it was the hardest decision I've ever made, I've not once regretted it!

Bringing my husband Neil into the mix was one of the easiest decisions I've ever made! As my second shooter, he's been becoming besties with groomsmen, winning over bridesmaids, and loving on my couples along side me since 2015. He completes my wedding photography business just like he completes me in our marriage!

Also in 2015 Graeme Thomas Houser was born and our lives changed forever! And then in 2018, Georgia Ann Houser was born and our family was complete! Having children changes every aspect of your life but what I didn’t expect is for it to change our business for the better! We can’t help but tear up at every mother/son and father/daughter dance! Be forewarned, one of us (ok, it'll be me) will cry at some point of your wedding day! Graeme and Georgia have given such a beautiful new perspective on life and we are so in love with them!

In my spare time I enjoy cooking for my family, renovating our 120 year old home with Neil, singing (mostly Disney songs and Broadway hits), and working with mamas and their littles as a certified breastfeeding specialist and a certified pediatric sleep specialist.
