Hi, my name is Rachel Smith!



Rachel Smith

Meet Your Photog/Videographer

     Welcome and thanks for checking out my work! I am a freelance photographer and videographer based out of Vinings, GA. I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a B.A. in media arts, minoring in advertising and mass communications. My two favorite roles in filmmaking are being an editor and videographer. I also have experience with lighting, sound, and working as a production assistant. In terms of photography, I do event, photojournalism, and portrait photography.

        My photography jobs include working for bigger brands such as Home Depot and ESPN at College GameDay, as well as several local businesses such as Interi, c.HAIR.i.TEE, 1801 Grille, and Market on Main. My film jobs include working as a production assistant for Religion of Sports, Hardpin Media, and iHeartRadio.


Along with having my own company, I am part of Famously Hot Films, an award-winning production company I co-created with a team of UofSC film graduates. I'm currently available for hire and am actively pursuing new job opportunities in the film and photography market. Make sure to message me for specific rates or if you would like to connect. Looking forward to working with you!


Based in Atlanta, GA



If you're interested in a shoot with me but aren't located in GA no worries! I travel frequently and am always down to shoot in a new country or state. From GA to Italy no where is too far.

"My husband and I absolutely enjoyed having Rachel shoot our engagement photos! Her professionalism and eye for the little things made everything worth it. I'm not usually a photogenic person nor do I ever know what to do during a shoot but she coached us through it each step of the way while never making me feel embarrassed. I would 100% recommend her for any photography needs you may have and can't wait for our next opportunity to work with her! 10 out of 10 stars and a standing ovation!"
