Welcome, friends!

Hi there! I'm Rachel, owner of Rachel Straughen Photography, Traverse City area wedding and family photographer. With a passion for capturing your best side in the best light available, I am here to make your photography experience as smooth and as comfortable as possible. 

As a Traverse City native currently residing in Interlochen, Michigan and having grown up running barefoot on our family farm in Leelanau County, I have a strong knowledge of some of the BEST places in Northwest Michigan- many only the locals know. Let's get started!

This is it! You've made it. One of the most important vendors for your wedding is your photographer. I am not just your photographer. I am your boutonniere-pinner, dress-bustler, chauffeur and SO much more.

Customizable packages located in and around the Traverse City area for you and your family to accommodate the energetic kiddos, the less than enthused father who hates having his picture taken, and more! 

Currently booking 2025 & 2026 weddings! Book yours today!
