My photography style is a fusion of documentary candid moments with an editorial experience. My work captures the raw emotions and moments of couples against the backdrop of dreamy details and unique locations.

I'M RAquel
raleigh WEDDING

I have photographed weddings for over three years and as past bride myself, I know how important it is to have an experienced professional capture these moments.

Our favorite sessions

Our weddings begin with 8 hour coverage to make sure we don't miss anything on your big day. You can expect to receive a mix of film and digital photos of your day.


Short & sweet sessions

Our elopement sessions begin with 4 hour coverage to make sure we don't miss anything on your big day. You can expect to receive a mix of film and digital photos of your day.


For my couples in love

Whether it's in the midst of a bustling cityscape, a serene natural setting, or the cozy confines of their own home, every frame tells a unique story of love, laughter, and togetherness. 


I cannot express how wonderful my experience was with Raquel Baxley! I hired her for my wedding and she captured the most beautiful moment and did not miss a second. I had several vendors for my wedding but Raquel was by far my favorite! She stayed in contact with me throughout the planning, was extremely organized, professional, excited and arrived on time! Did I mention she gave birth to the most beautiful baby weeks before my wedding and still took great care of us. This women is amazing. My father passed away recently and she really captured his beautiful smile and special moments with him and I. I cannot thank her enough. I’m not sure what you are waiting for, hire her immediately!

I can't say enough great things about Raquel! She did our engagement photos and wedding, and we were so happy with both. She is so talented and easy to work with.  Raquel was able to direct us and produce some amazing shots! I truly can't thank her enough for providing these amazing photo memories for us. I'd recommend her for weddings and engagement photos and I'd even consider traveling to NC to work with her again someday!
