A little about Rachel & Garren:

Rachel and Garren King are a husband and wife wedding team specializing in creating storytelling photos and videos. They are based in Lakeland, Florida serving the Tampa Bay and Orlando, FL areas. Their hometown is in Southern, IL and they still shoot in that area often! Rachel has a bachelor’s degree in photojournalism from SIU Carbondale and keeps the creativity flowing with continual classes, workshops, and conferences. She is a firm believer in chasing dreams and having a blast doing it. Garren is a web-developer with some mad IT skills that come into play with the photography business. When he’s not shooting a wedding with Rachel, he can be found working as a CNC Programmer making parts for NASA and other cool companies.

Our story:

Christmas eve 2009 Garren asked Rachel to be his wife and on September 25th, 2010 the two were hitched! The summer before their own wedding day, they shot their very first wedding together as R&G Photography. Since then they have developed an incredible team with a new company name, Rachel & Garren • Photo and Film. Our personalities & experience give clients peace of mind that their photos will be phenomenal and help create a low stress wedding day.

A little bit more about the big boss...

If you've followed us for a while, you've probably already noticed that the "Rachel" in Rachel & Garren • Photo and Film is usually the voice behind our blog posts, Instagram, and Facebook. She's also the one who you'll be talking to throughout the booking process and your lifeline when things don't go as planned. It's not that Garren doesn't play a HUGE role in the business, because he does - but he is more of a behind the scenes guy (and also an excellent 2nd shooter, videographer, and tech guru!)

So, let's get to know the big boss, Rachel. :)

Here are a few things she's obsessed with...

  • Disney
  • Audiobooks
  • Board games
  • Shopping (especially for her two girls!)
  • Stationery, stickers, and colorful pens
  • Makeup
  • Purple - a nod to her favorite Disney princess, Rapunzel
  • Chocolate & peanut butter
  • Traveling
  • Caffeinated drinks (usually a good frappe or cappuccino!)
  • Corgis
  • Swimming
  • Pizza
  • TV time on the couch with her hubby

"Picking a photographer for one of the biggest days of your life can be stressful. When I was on the hunt for a wedding photographer, I didn’t really have anyone in mind - luckily, I happened upon Rache & Garren! I had no idea at that time that I would be starting a business relationship that would last much longer than my wedding day. Not only were my wedding photos absolutely perfect, so was the service. They were so easy to work with and captured that day so perfectly!"
