HI, I’M BILLIE-SHAYE, A KENTUCKY GIRL RAISED ON SWEET TEA & FRIED CHICKEN, LOVED BY JESUS CHRIST & SAVED BY HIS AMAZING GRACE.
Exploring a mountain trail with my handsome husband, antiquing, a breathtaking sunrise or sunset, wildflowers, laughing until my sides hurt and well… PHOTOGRAPHY are just a few things I’m obsessed with.
Whether we are in Cades Cove, Elkmont or exploring the Sinks, the Great Smoky Mountains speak loudly to my soul. Serving the Great Smoky Mountain and surrounding areas to include Tennessee / Kentucky - BUT TOTALLY WILLING TO TRAVEL – with soulful Wedding Photography and memorable family portraits. I lean toward more natural, in-the-moment photos with my focus being to create emotional moments and capturing the feeling. Creating a bold, emotional, unbridled, one-of-a-kind experience.
To me, photography is about witnessing the magic of love + life happen! I live to capture life’s most beautiful moments, and am most inspired by the uniqueness of people. I love using my god-given talent for capturing people’s essence in life’s real moments.
associate wedding photographer for Billie-shaye style
Rachel is a southern girl raised on the songs of the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s, a lover of sweet tea and a follower of Jesus Christ. She is surrounded by love from her hard-working, supportive husband and son, who both keep her on her toes all the time.
When she isn’t working as a full-time registered medical assistant, taking photos, or learning more than she would ever want to know about dinosaurs with her son, she can be found caught up in a good book with a cup of coffee in tow, watching a sappy Hallmark movie. She loves to drive the back roads to gaze at God‘s beauty singing at the top of her lungs. She also has a knack for making everything homemade and crocheting special gifts for loved ones.
Rachel’s passion for photography has most definitely completed the wedding team at Billie-Shaye Style and we are so excited to have her capturing your day with us.
