the associate experience

Meet My Associates

what to expect

Our mission is to bring you a warm, joyful experience from our team. 

When I’m not behind my camera, you can find me googling why all of my house plants are dying, taking photos of my dog while he’s sleeping or doing something cute AF, starting a new renovation on my 1900's farmhouse, or pouring myself a well deserved glass of wine at 1pm. Being a bride myself- I want to capture your story the way I would want mine captured. Capturing moments between two people in love is my passion. I don’t know man- I just love, love!

Meet Megan

Mostly, I just want you to know that I will be 100% here for you with whatever you need! We are going on this journey together and you should feel completely comfortable and love who you work with. I am here to serve YOU, and I promise to do everything I can to meet all your needs and more as your photographer. You deserve to have your life captured in a way that will reflect who you are, and that is my passion.

an out going goof ball, always looking forward to the next thing.. but I also love every little moment in between! My motivation comes from Jesus, my family and coffee!

Have questions?

What is an associate photographer?

I WISH I could photograph every single wedding ever, but that is just not possible. Which is why I have expanded my team to having Associate Photographers. Which is when a hired and trained by me photographer photographs your actual wedding day, and I will edit and deliver the photos to give the Rachel Traxler experience. Best of both worlds! 

How does it work?

Once you inquire about your day, if I am unavailable, I will make sure one of my Associate photographers is. If they are available, we will proceed with booking your wedding date as usual. The Associate photographer will photograph your engagement session and your wedding day, and I will edit and deliver the photos to you. You will be in communication with both me and the Associate throughout the planning process.

What does pricing look like?

We offer 2 package options for Associate Photographers starting at 3800 and both include engagement sessions

How will I receive my photos?

The associate will photograph your session and wedding day, and I will edit and deliver the photos to you through an online gallery as usual.
