WEDDING & FAMILY PORTRAIT photography in Central Texas

AS Seen In

I married my absolute best friend, mom to Avery Nicole & Brady James, most people consider me to be a health nut, pairing wine with food, traveling, I have to be outside at least once a day or I go crazy (It's true!), I love to run, tell long stories and my favorite show is Outlander because its the perfect blend of history and romance

Welcome and thank you so much for stopping by! My name is Rachel and I am the creative behind Rachel Thomas Photography. I have a passion for Nature, Art, History and Holistic Living. I am known for my ability to capture color through story and my dream is to give you and your family something special that can be handed down from generation to generation. I cannot wait to meet you and everyone you care about!

what I'm known for:

If you were to ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up, my little self would have said, "A Photographer that travels the world, paints my own images and then gives them to people to make them feel better". I chuckle thinking about this because in a way, I am still that same girl. I love both Art and Health and I have never been able to decide between the two. After spending over 10 years in Corporate Sales, I always felt as If I was living in a black and white movie, stuck inside of a box or moving with the herd. I needed my own way, my creative outlet and I wanted to help people. Flash forward to now, I realize that I dont need to pick. I can do both! Rachel Thomas Photography demonstrates my passion for capturing raw organic emotions through photography as well as educating my readers about the benefits of living holistically and what it can do for our mind, body and spirit. Crazy to pursue both? Haha probably... but my goal is to leave you inspired and to encourage us all to become the best version of ourselves that we can be.

"Born in Texas but my heart travels the world".

We treat you like family.

Being a Wife, Mom, Sister and Friend to those around me, I know how important each milestone in our lives can be. Those moments are irreplaceable.  We want to work with you to not only capture what is most important but grow with your family and experience all of the joys that life has to offer.
