I'M RACHEL & IT'S SO NICE TO MEET YOU! { OWNER & PHOTOGRAPHER }

Those closest to me know that my hope is to spread kindness everywhere I go. I believe in authenticity, and that reflects in the art that I create. I am deeply passionate about making others feel like their best selves, and I photograph those who desire to preserve the special moments of their lives. I consider myself fortunate because I get to provide my clients their important memories in photograph form.

 

As a photographer, I have ten years of experience under my belt and a non-stop five-star review track record. FUN FACT: the furthest we've been for a wedding is Stavanger, Norway. When I'm not busy elsewhere you can find me spending time with my boyfriend of seven years, Gabriel. We currently live in Atlanta, GA with our rescue pup Ellie. Myself and each of my Papillon Visuals team members are local and destination wedding photographers. Follow us on Instagram.

A few more items about me:

- I have a degree in Psychology and am currently working on my Bachelor's Business Admin degree in Strategic Marketing

- I have played guitar and classical piano for most of my life

- Charcuterie is my favorite way to snack and I always have it on hand

- I an an ENFJ-P and an enneagram 4

- I own exactly forty-nine pairs of shoes and the count is ever growing

WHAT DOES THE WORD PAPILLON (PRONOUNCED LIKE päpēˈyôn) MEAN?

Our business name means "butterfly" in French, one of the most romantic and emotional languages in the world. We renamed our business "Papillon Visuals" in 2021 because that is what we wish for you. If one of our team members has the privilege of capturing a photograph or video of you, we hope it will make you feel beautiful, free, and hopeful as you continue to grow into your best self.

Specialities: elopements, destination weddings, boudoir, all types of portrait sessions, film-making.
For the most part, Rachel will not be doing full-length weddings in GA after Summer '22. 

Each of our artists has years of

experience in the wedding industry & they are

fully equipped to provide you with an

incredible experience on your wedding day!

I'M VIVI, ASSOCIATE LEAD PHOTOGRAPHER.

Hi, I'm Vivi! I believe in the positive influence of creation and apply that philosophy through photography, digital design, and copy. For over a year now I've been in Atlanta serving as a guide and representative for account logistics and all things creative at a digital marketing agency in Buckhead. I studied Journalism and Art at the University of Georgia, which is when and where I also discovered my love for good community, travel, passionfruit ice cream, and photography, photography, photography! Follow me on Instagram.

Specialities: full-length weddings, engagement sessions.

I'M GABRIEL, ASSISTANT PHOTOGRAPHER.

When I'm not photographing weddings with Rach, you'll find me listening to music, watching a movie, reading a book, or writing stories of my own. Fun fact: I am the third of six children. At the age of nine, I attempted my first written work of fiction in an old three-ring binder.​ I love expressing myself artistically and my enjoyment of photography, music, cinema, and travel stem from that. So far in my travels, I have ventured to Norway, France, Israel, and much of the United States. In 2020 I graduated from the University of Georgia with a BA in English. Follow me on Instagram.

Photography is another way for me to get to tell a story--I would love the opportunity to tell yours.

Speciality: wedding photography assistance.

I'M SKAY, ASSOCIATE LEAD PHOTOGRAPHER.

Hello there! When I was trying to decide what I wanted to do with my life, I realized I wanted a job where I could not only share my journey of uncovering this abundant life through Jesus, but help encourage others that they are beautiful and worth loving. I picked up a camera and have been pursuing my passion for photography ever since! I also completed my degree in Business Marketing in 2019. I love photographing weddings because I'm a sucker for romance, and because I've been through it myself and I know how stressful it can be. I'd love to help your day be incredible. Follow me on Instagram.

Four things I love in life: My husband Malachi, my dog Max, my friends, & travel (who doesn't?).

Specialities: full-length weddings, engagement sessions, film-making.
