it’s nice to meet you

I’m Rachel Lenore

intimate & romantic wedding photographer

Yep, that’s right! My name is Rachel and “Raelen” is named after my first and middle names mashed together! I grew up in the Tri-Cities area and have been taking photos of couples and individuals around here for about 13 years! I absolutely love to read and consume stories, which is partially what led to my desire to be a Wedding Photographer. I love seeing love in all its forms, and tear up more often than not when I get to take photos at weddings and engagements. Seeing two people in love makes my heart so incredibly happy!

Some other things I LOVE to do include traveling, road trips, taking walks in the sunshine, hiking, and singing! I am a cat lady through and through and can literally play with kittens for hours on end. I do also enjoy playing with doggos when I get a chance though!

If you think you’d like to grab a coffee and chat about how we can make your wedding, event, engagement, or portraits the most amazing experience, please let me know! I am always a fan of coffee, and also I love to meet new people! I am definitely an extrovert and I THRIVE on meeting and spending time with people! Even if your intent is not to book a session, if you think you’d like to be my friend, I’m all about that life, so…..coffee?
