Meet Rachel!

Your east TEnnessee wedding & boudoir photographer

Hi there!


I'm Rachel Ily.


You're personal hype girl! When I'm not behind the lens you can find me spending time with my hubby and our pups! I love mornings the most, making coffee and avocado toast (because I'm a millennial) and reading/journaling before starting my day. Fun fact my middle name is ILY, it means I love you. My mom gave it to me way before texting was a thing (crazy, right?) It is very special to me.

Photography is something that I fall in love with

in every session. It means the world to me to be chosen as your photographer to capture your special moments and give you photos that you'll one day show your grandchildren. I am honored to provide memories for generations to come.

I'm A Dog Lover


I have a fur baby named Bentley, he's a pug-shih tzu mix. He's 13 pounds of pure excitement and love! I found Bentley at a chaotic time in my life and I swear everyday that little guy saved me.

P.S. you can always, always bring your furry friend to our sessions! I'll be sure to bring some dog treats!

I Enjoy Being Crafty


I am the first person to think: I can make that! I am BIG into DIY-ing anything and everything! I am always looking for ways to help my DIY brides out! It's such a special feeling when you've created something with your hands. I also spend way too much time on Pinterest! I love feeling inspired!
