Who We Are

Sam here! That's me sitting on the ground with the doggos, which is a pretty normal thing for me to do.

Here at Rae Allen Photography, Eric, my husband, and I believe in purposeful photography that evokes emotion. That could mean belly laughs, running through an open field with your dogs, or a big bear hug from your dad on your wedding day. We believe communication is key when it comes to serving our clients, which means we believe in answering our phones. We don't follow trends, we follow our hearts, and our hearts lies with clients who truly want one of a kind experience.

As Seen In

"These are my go-to photographers for family photos and special occasions. Most recently they took maternity photos for me. I was big as can be, and they were extremely patient and helpful hiking down to a beautiful creek with me for photos (my requested location). They created stunning photos for me and I couldn’t be happier with the experience and finished product."

"We absolutely could not be happier with our experience working with Sam and Eric. They were incredibly friendly and easy to work with, very responsive, and magically made my husband and I photogenic. The photos we received were stunning. They managed to capture the most genuine and intimate little moments between us. We’re so grateful to have our special day documented so beautifully."

Matt grabs Macey from behind and picks her up while she laughs


"Sam is such a talented photographer! She helped make my ideas come to life. Matt and I had so much fun while she was taking photos! She helped us both feel comfortable and at ease as she captured all of our special moments together," --Macy
