Rachel is a bit of a wild child and loves artistic photography in all forms. With a commercial photographer degree, Rachel has been photographing weddings for over 10 years. As she handles most of the client communication, Rachel is often the one answering emails and phone calls. Her hyper-organization skills come in handy here as she also balances a young family of her own.
Lory is sensitive and full of emotion. Kind hearted to the core, she sees how others feel and puts their needs first. Lory handles most of the back end business details, keeping our little boat afloat. Cactus and Lace was her brain child from the beginning. She used to photograph weddings at Valley of Fire and saw how other wedding vendors were offering the basics in the cheapest way possible. She thought, “I can do this better than that…” And so she did. :)
Working behind the scenes, Amanda keeps us from losing our heads by picking up the slack in any needed areas. She helps us handle emails, social media, and other odd jobs. She is indispensable as our assistant on the day of the wedding, stepping in wherever needed. Amanda carries furniture, keeps an eye on the timeline, cuts the cake slices and pours champagne for all the guests. (Just a shout out here to her wonderful husband, Tommy, as well, who acts as our handyman and helps us with all our random projects.)
Our wonderful Alexandra loves all things vintage and provides a keen stylistic eye on the day of the wedding as she helps with wedding setup and decor. Our second assistant, she’s such a champ about carrying furniture, washing dishes and as so much more. She has also become our seamstress, sewing up fabric edges and cloth decor.
Reyanna actually started out as our business partner when we were bringing Cactus and Lace to life. But due to her overwhelming success as a photographer, she needed to bow out of the everyday business of Cactus and Lace to keep her life in balance. She now acts as our preferred backup photographer or assistant if we need a little extra help. One of Reyanna’s many talents is her amazing skill as a professional editing retoucher. Reyanna has always done and will continue to do the image editing for all Cactus and Lace weddings.
