Hello, and welcome to my little online home! I'm Rachael Leigh and I am a wedding and senior portrait photographer in Southwest Ohio! I do hope that you will grab a cup of coffee and enjoy viewing some of my latest work and getting a little sneak peek into life behind the scenes!
This wedding was one filled with family and legacy. And as you scroll through the details and the rest of the post, you’ll see what I mean! Kacie wore Michael’s grandma’s pearls, she carried a handkerchief that had been passed down through his family and her bouquet was adorned with a charm commemorating the family […]
From the start, Katie told me that the point of their day was not only to celebrate the marriage of her and Charlie, but to honor all those who have walked alongside them throughout their relationship. She told me all about the unique timeline she had in mind, how there’d be an intimate ceremony […]
God and his goodness are written all over this wedding story and there are two main reasons why: 1. there was a high chance of rain on their day, but Megan faithfully prepared for it. She thought to buy clear umbrellas, had a rain plan for portraits and kept me updated on it all! When […]
Each couple I have the chance to work with is so unique. They have their own story. Sam and Lisa, well, they’d been waiting five years. Five years of back and forth, really long distances and a whole lot of patience. Just the past few months, they’ve actually been unable to talk via any form […]
After a rain filled wedding season last year, I feel like a seasoned rain professional! And when the forecast began showing non stop showers throughout the day, I was prepping like I typically do. But most preparation was poured into prayer! I knew that Christine so wanted her ceremony outdoors and getting to use the […]
Since wedding season is about to kick back up, I’ve been in full planning mode with my brides! Two months before their wedding day, I come alongside each Rachael Leigh Bride to create a custom timeline that ensures that it goes exactly according to plan and that guarantees that they’ll get the best photographs […]
I truly believe that I could write a book about last year and all the amazing couples I had the honor of serving! And even though it’s April and you may be thinking, “Rachael, shouldn’t you have posted in this in like January?” well.. you’re probably right! I should have! I just have so many […]
There honestly couldn’t have been a better way to wrap up the 2018 wedding season than with Derek and Emily’s antique, Christmas themed day at Clovernook Country Club! The class and joy just oozed out of these two through everything, even when the rain continue to pour and we had to escape out to a […]
Lee and Amanda’s Kentucky wedding was the next to last in my 2018 season! I can’t believe this year has flown by so fast and we will be saying hello to 2019 soon! But in all of the weddings I have photographed this year, this one was special in such a different way. This was […]
The rain never did go away on Nick and Julie’s wedding day, but the joy abounded even more than the drops that were falling outside! There were tears, smiles, laughs and all of the emotions that come along with each of those! At the end of the day, despite the rain and all of the […]
