    I'd give a million stars if I could

    I would encourage every bride to stop your search for the perfect wedding photographer; Rachel and the Papillon team are just that. It all started back in 2017 when Rachel photographed my high school senior photos, so when I got engaged in 2020 I knew it had to be her! I can confidently say my wedding would simply have not been the same without her. Not only is she a warm, friendly soul who will inevitably put you at ease on your big day, she is also incredibly focused, talented, and devoted to getting the most perfect shots of your dreams. Rachel was fantastic at making sure that she understood my vision and consistently made sure we were on the same page, making her a top-notch communicator! Day of, she was timely and focused but also encouraged me to feel excited. Rachel even saved the day when a thunderstorm ruined our sparkler exit, suggesting our guests form a tunnel for us to run through. The exit photos still turned out so beautifully, and I am so grateful for her quick thinking. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you thank you thank you to Rachel and Gabe! xo, Mary and Joseph (the Merediths 💗)

    Awe-mazing!

    We HIGHLY recommended Rachel. You will LOVED her from the first moment you meet her. She did both our Engagement photos and Wedding Photos. She was very fun and brought life to our photo shoot. Her and Gabe found all the right shots and angles, we loved EVERY photo! We will be seeing Rachel again for future photos!

    Compassionate during COVID wedding crisis and quality photos

    Rachel with Wisdom and Stature has been incredibly professional, responsive, and compassionate as I tried to figure out what my wedding would look like during COVID. She was thorough with the schedule and planning when I was expecting a larger wedding, but able to go with the flow when we had to change things due to the pandemic. The team came out to our backyard wedding and took some beautiful photos of my family and I during our backyard wedding. I would highly recommend Wisdom&Stature Photography.

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

Those closest to me know that my dream 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 nine years of experience under my belt, a consistent 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 live in Athens, GA with our rescue pup Ellie. Together with my best friend/business partner Skay, we work at Papillon Visuals as local and destination wedding photographers.

A few more things about me:

- I have a degree in Psychology and am currently working on my Bachelor's in Business/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, a language that is close to my heart. Butterflies encompass beauty, freedom, hope, and rebirth. I renamed my business Papillon Visuals in 2021 because that is what I wish for you. If I have the privilege of capturing a photograph of you, I 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, videography.

Wedding Photography Assistance

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.
