HEY! My name is Jade! First things first: I am a follower of the Jesus Christ and He gave me this passion of photography. I’ve grown up and lived in New Mexico my whole life. I am stoked to be surrounded by the desert, the Rio Grande river and various mountain ranges. I literally get to drive through and roam around these beautiful God given landscapes to inspire the work I create. I believe that it is important that YOU choose to work with me because of who I am.

What makes me different from the handful of other photographers you are considering?

I care. From the moment you contact me, I am praying for you. I am praying that God is working through you and has brought you here because of His name’s sake.

I long to serve you. If you are in the middle of planning your wedding, I will help you plan the timing of the day and what would work best for you and your honey.

I will help you have the most restful wedding day. You’re probably thinking, “What? Restful?”. YES! Restful! All of the planning and annoying tasks shouldn’t have to be worried about the day of. I will help you figure out those details because I have experienced a thing or two!

What I love about being a photographer is how I can connect with YOU. I love serving other people by pouring into and encouraging them and if I can do that with a camera in my hand, I am incredibly blessed. If I’m not on a photoshoot, you can most likely find me playing PS4 with my husband while our puppy is chewing toys next to us. I love traveling with my husband, Isaiah, and walking our puppies, Oakley and Lumi. I always try to find time to sit in coffee shops to have intentional conversations with my friends (high key LOVE the smell inside of Starbucks). In my free time I enjoy binging Netflix/Hulu shows (One Tree Hill, Gilmore Girls, and Parks and Rec are always good), planning road trips (To go to all of the National Parks if a for sure goal of mine), or journaling about my Creator.

I've been passionate about photography my entire life and I want to share my passion with you! Growing up I always played with little disposable film cameras taking blurry photos of roses in my backyard. Those photos quickly turned into very elaborate selfies in my middle school days. When I was a freshman in high school, I was given my first DSLR camera and I started taking photography more seriously. I would go on little photoshoots with my friends and dress up all fancy. I would take pictures around my high school and school dances, which ultimately ended up in the yearbook. It was around that time that I was able to shoot my grandmother's 50th high school reunion. As my high school years went on, I became the main photographer and editor of the school yearbook. I continued to take pictures of my friends and then started taking official senior pictures. Since graduating high school, I have shot several senior sessions and several weddings. The summer of 2017 and 2018, I was a part of a team of 4 media staff at Glorieta Camps. I was able to shoot and interview every age range while they enjoyed God's creation and His overwhelming love and mercy. I graduated with my Bachelors in Studio Art, emphasizing in photography in May 2018.

Jade Rae is a wedding photographer based out of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Professional and servant-hearted photographer with timeless quality work

Jade went above and beyond as our engagement and wedding photographer. She is so willing to serve her clients with kindness, flexibility, and professionalism. My husband and I had a shorter engagement than we had initially expected, and it was so serendipitous that Jade was free on our day and beyond willing to be our photographer. She seeks to get to know you personally - your love story, personalities, sense of humor, etc. We had a beautiful, last-minute engagement session the week before our wedding at a stunning location that Jade recommended in our home state, and she made us feel so comfortable and genuine in front of the camera. We were so grateful for the quick turnaround and brilliant quality of our wedding day photos, including so many details that she captured for us to remember vividly and forever. We’ve honored her work tangibly and physically with a wedding album to share and remember for the years and generations to come.

Absolutely wonderful!!

Jade was our photographer for our elopement as well as our reception the following year. There is absolutely no other photographer I would recommend. Jade’s photography style felt very intimate and candid resulting in some of the most beautiful photographs I have seen. Her responsiveness and support in ALL areas of the wedding planning process did not go unnoticed. I had to get my dress tailored last minute and she sent me the contact of a local tailor that she has used herself immediately. She goes above and beyond in all areas and was able to document all the details of my elopement and wedding day perfectly! Plus, she had an extremely rapid turn around time in receiving our virtual album.

Jade is my go to recommendation for a wedding or elopement photographer.
