ABOUT ME

ADVENTURER, PHOTOGRAPHER, ARTIST, MUSICIAN AND 100% OBSESSED WITH MY CAT
I'M NOT YOUR TYPICAL "POSY" PHOTOGRAPHER. I OFFER A CANDID APPROACH AND BELIEVE EVERY MOMENT IS IMPORTANT.
Let's talk about the vision and life behind my business for a minute. I moved to Burlington, VT and worked as a pre-school educator at a local school while running my photography business part time. I found Katie Figura Photography in the Fall of 2019 and we started working together! I went full time with Rae Ann Photo LLC in 2022 and haven’t looked back.

BEHIND THE VISION, MIND + LENS OF RAE ANN PHOTO LLC
I'm Rae (short for Rachel) and I'm based in Central, VT where I live in the hills amongst cows, farms and many, many lakes and ponds. I'm not a true Vermonter and was born and raised in Bedford, NH. I grew up playing piano and identified as an "art nerd." I have a SoundCloud which you can view here. I have a 6 year old MaineCoon who is the light of my life.

I'm a photographer for untraditional couples who value simplicity and experiences that hold meaning to them. If you want to elope in the mountains with your dog, I am here for it. Your wedding shouldn’t fit into a mold and can really be anything you want. I also love playing a big part of your wedding planning process and walk you through every step. I love creating a beautiful and safe space so my clients can show up and be themselves. I'm non-confirming and constantly broke rules growing up. I never fit into a specific box and always did the opposite of what was asked of me. I value being outdoors and ALWAYS having fun even if it’s cloudy and rainy. 
 
My ideal day is going for a midday paddle on my kayak; the water is warm and shimmering, the sun is golden and the vibes are up!
SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER, KATIE FIGURA

Katie grew up in Upstate NY and went on to study at Cornell University where she majored in Industrial and Labor Relations and also had a camera with her the whole time. Now Katie and her husband divide their time between Vermont and New Orleans.  She is available in Vermont in Summer and early Fall and then resides in New Orleans the rest of the year. Her passion for photography solidified through documenting different non-profits and humanitarian stories focusing on refugee experiences. Katie's favorite part of weddings are the symbolism and ritual of the day and the intergenerational shared joy.  The photographs of solemn moments in a ceremony are just as important as the dance photos documenting joyous release. We need both in life.  Her focus with clients is to create a fun, relaxing dynamic where people can be themselves, and she can capture them in a moment that is real and beautiful.  Some of the most meaningful feedback Katie has received as a photographer is when people comment that they felt seen. Kindness, compassion and connection to community and the earth are central to her values.
