Based in Sioux Falls, SD

Wedding & Portrait Photographer for the Real & Romantic.

Your natural-light photos will be full of emotion and tug on every heart-string in your body.

My grandparent’s wedding photos hung in our hallway, and growing up I would pause at those pictures EVERY. DAY. 

When I'm photographing, I’m capturing a memory that will be passed down to your children, and their children. These are the pictures that will cover their walls for generations and be cherished forever.

MORE THAN JUST NICE PICTURES

Meredtih & Cole

"Our session was lighthearted and fun which allowed us to feel comfortable and be ourselves. What are you doing still reading this BOOK HER"

"Rhody is the full package! Exceeded all expectations"

Jerica & Nick

"Not only is she a beautiful person inside & out, but she made out wedding experience so fun and effortless. Even my husband enjoyed taking our engagement and wedding photos. She's your planner, photographer, and personal hype woman all in one."

"RUN, don't walk to book with Rachael"

Kelsie & jake

Rachael was a dream to work with. It is so easy to get lost in the chaos of wedding planning but Rachael was so organized and helpful in more ways than just photography. The wedding day will go fast, and photos are one of the only things you will have to look back on. Rhody ray is easily the best decision we’ve made to capture those memories"

"Rachael has SO many unique & spontaneous ideas that have turned into our favorite pictures"

When I close my eyes, I can see your session playing out like a movie. I can see the wind softly blowing your hair, feel the crunch of gravel under your shoes, and 
hear your laughter echoing in the warm sunlight.

I want to bring LIFE to your photos.

"What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that's gone forever, impossible to reproduce"
