  • hi there

    Welcome to my blog! I'm Rachael Earl, a wedding and lifestyle photographer from Arizona. I like things that are fun and full of color!

Saddle Up | Phoenix Lifestyle Photographer

I love being able to see families grow and change, and being able to see their day-to-day lives…I hope that doesn’t sound stalker-y. I’ve had the opportunity to photograph this family lots and lots and lots and lots, and it’s amazing how they have grown. Now they have this little man who is the perfect combo of the two of them, who is totally fearless and sweet all rolled into one.

Fact: They have a saloon in their backyard. Enough said.

Hey Baby

Dear friends, neighbors, and clients,

I am SO excited to announce that my husband and I are expecting baby #4 in November of this year! What this means is that I will be unavailable in part of October, November, and December for fall and Christmas photos. If you want to book me for these services this year, definitely book early! I will be scheduling mainly for September and mainly for existing clients, as I will have very limited spaces open. Thank you for your support during this wonderful, happy time for my family!



Is This Thing On????

Holy moly…I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve blogged! Well, I have been hard at work, even though it doesn’t show here ๐Ÿ˜‰ While I can’t possibly do them justice, here is a random sampling for your viewing pleasure!

You may recognize some of these from my Facebook page, which is where I’ll typically post the most recent updates, announcements, and sneak peeks. Be sure to LIKE IT!

all the small things | scottsdale wedding photographer

I love all the fun little details that make weddings so special. Brides these days think of EVERYTHING, and Jeanine literally thought of everything even down to her toes, which were adorned with her adorable goldfish theme. While I am still going through the gazillion photos I shot (literally…a gazillion…if that is literally even a number), I wanted to share a tidbit of the details that made Jeanine and Garrett’s wedding last night so special. Get your pinning fingers ready…

Petals on her dress looked like fish scales:)

Cute bags Jeanine made for each of her bridesmaids.

Thanks to my incredible helper Kelly Lawson for this awesome idea and even more awesome balancing skills:

Tyra would be proud – this is some serious “H to T”

LOVE this fun take on a french style manicure

And of course I couldn’t resist a themed ring shot either. Goldfish in love? Check. Napkin ocean? Check. Ring bubbles? Check.

More of this FUN couple to come!
