Rachel Leigh's Blog

This is where the sneak peeks and special days shared more fully are at :D

Welcome TO

Ten years ago this week, 18 year old me was interning with the lovely Jessica Shae and I officially launched “Rachel Leigh” :D. Learning from her gave me the foundation I needed to begin building a photography business and I’m forever grateful :). From then until now is the story of the little business God […]

Mount Pleasant, TX wedding photographer

I’m very happy to share a wedding with y’all today! This wedding of two sweet friends of mine was last July and I was second shooter to the forever darling Jessica Shae :D. I hope y’all enjoy this elegant wedding :D.                             […]

  Here’s the last installment of my favorites from 2013: the weddings I was blessed to be a part of :). First off is the wedding of my friends Stephen and Abigail Gates :). Back in March, I shot part of their wedding: her getting ready and the reception.   Now this is a wedding […]

Here’s a sneak peek of another shoot I did at Jessica Shae’s Summer Adventure last weekend :D. Edwin and Hannah were SO easy and fun; I can’t wait to share the rest :D. With a smile, { Rachel Leigh }

And last night I had the pleasure and privilege of taking senior portraits of the gorgeous, joyful, and kind Lauren Rhodes :D. Here’s just a glimpse of how lovely and fun the session was. More […]

Yes, I had the privilege of being a part of Jessica Shae’s Summer Adventure for one day 😀 :D.Jessica planned an intern reunion for last Wednesday (towards the end of her internship). Sadly, Allix and I were the only past interns that were able to attend (and Allix’s mom, Mrs. Darla; she was our driver […]

Well, here’s the post I promised y’all!   The last day of our visit, Jessica Shae drove Allix B. and I to Arlington so we could finally meet Josh after hearing so much about him since last May!!  We walked into his nice apartment bearing Sprite, chips, queso (“Cheese: me no likey!” Hahaha ;D), and pizza rolls. He welcomed […]

While Allix B. and I were with Jessica last weekend, we had about a 15 minute window of opportunity to take portraits of her!    And here are mine :D.   She’s such a sweetheart :).   And she luuuuvs her parents. Hehe ;D. (Her parents are pretty awesome! ). Jessica, you’re so pretty :). […]
