AWARD-WINNING DESTINATION WEDDING FILM PHOTOGRAPHER 

Let's meet

Hi! I’m Rachael Kazmier,

Now that we have this ‘official’ introduction out of the way, here’s the more personal version. The one I’d tell you if we were meeting for cocktails at a sunny sidewalk cafe, as friends. 

When I’m not traveling to photograph a wedding, you can find me….

Making memories with my husband Keith, playing with our sweet golden retriever puppy, Camper, and planning my next travel destination. 

and my life’s work is making you and your loved ones feel so special and cared for as you celebrate your wedding. 

Let's keep talking

I’m a creator at heart who always dreamed of running her own business…

The dream itself changed a lot – one week, it was owning a flower farm, and the next, it was designing wedding gowns (totally inspired by Elizabeth James in the Parent Trap!). 

But I never thought I’d be a professional photographer…

Looking back now, I should have seen this coming! I’ve always adored photography and was the self-proclaimed ‘documenter’ in my friend group. I’d go everywhere with my pink Sony point-and-shoot camera tucked away in my purse, ready to capture the moment. Let’s just say my first apartment was covered in printed photos of friends, memories, and travels!

In 2016, I married my soulmate, Keith, and that’s when everything changed (for the better)…

I absolutely fell in love with the entire wedding planning process and the incredible experience we had with our photographer. Our day was like a dream come true, and the photos she captured became some of our most sacred treasures. I just knew I wanted to help other couples feel the same way. 

My heart was telling me to make a career change, so…

I invested in a used camera and began photographing weddings on the weekends! I loved the creative outlet of photography, but even more than that, I loved being able to serve people on such an important day in their lives. I kept growing in my knowledge as a photographer, learning from some of the best in the industry and perfecting my craft. 

In 2019, I took my wedding photography business from side-hustle to full-time…

I officially said ‘good riddance’ to my corporate job and dove all-in with entrepreneurship! I’ve since photographed hundreds of weddings stateside and beyond, and have been published in top wedding blogs such as Style Me Pretty and Brides. But the achievements I cherish the most are the kind words from my happy couples and the ability to make a living doing something creative that I love while also traveling the world. 

I’ve never looked back…

I now serve 30+ amazing couples each year, capturing the genuine love and emotions of their destination weddings and elopements. I’ve also added three incredible associates to my team who work closely with me to tell even more love stories through the Rachael Kazmier Photography experience.

Rachael uses just the right framing to include the venue without her couples feeling lost within the image. The story remains clearly about them…yet we still get to enjoy the background and storytelling details.
