AWARD-WINNING DESTINATION WEDDING FILM PHOTOGRAPHER 

Your adventure awaits

I’m Rachael Kazmier

Let’s toss out the traditional online meeting for something that feels a little more us. Imagine we’re at a sidewalk café (in Amalfi Coast, Italy, perhaps?) chatting over scoops of strawberry gelato, or at a restaurant in Paris clinking coupes of French champagne.

I’d tell you I’m a Chicago-based girl with a traveler’s heart. That I’m happily married to my soulmate, Keith. And how I became a total dog mom after adopting our golden retriever puppy this past year! 

Mostly, though, I’d listen as you shared all about the love of your life, your family and friends, and the intimate, meaningful celebration you’re hoping for at your destination wedding. 

You’d tell me how you want a wedding day that not only looks gorgeous in photos – but one that also feels like the happiest day of your life. Effortless. Fun. Elegant. Easy.

We’d skip the Pinterest boards because we’re not repurposing someone else’s vision. We’re creating your day, one that’s a true reflection of you as a couple and has your guests agreeing, “That’s so them!”

Hi! It’s so nice to meet you.

Let's keep talking

Professional, kind, giving, and the most beautiful, positive energy you could ever want to be around.

Which – when it comes to getting married – is pretty much the best thing you could ask for in your photographer! Rachael will make sure your wedding is stress-free, and she’ll capture you and your partner in the most genuine way possible.
