I am changing the way that wedding photographers do business. Whether that means streamlining their processes so that they don’t have to be “on” at all times, creating a white glove client experience, building out their team, or doing all of that and then some. The potential for profit and growth in your business is limitless. The choice to claim that power and elevate your brand is 100% yours.
Pretty soon I realized that if I wanted to be able to support my growing family and continue working as a wedding photographer without wanting to rip my hair out, something had to change. So, I dove headfirst into marketing and brand strategy, learning everything that I possibly could. I knew that if I could get my business in front of the right people in an organic way, I could take it wherever I wanted it to go.
Shortly after my first daughter was born, I was featured in the Metro Times as the best photographer to follow on Instagram. With a brand new baby on my lap, I booked 17 weddings in one month. My business went from $10k in sales to $100k in sales in just two years.
I raised my prices, readjusted my mindset surrounding success, outsourced tasks to experts, and set up the backend of my business to run on autopilot–allowing me to book five-figure weddings (without weddings planners), have a full roster of overjoyed clients, and have my brand featured in publications like ELLE Magazine and The Huffington Post, all while spending the majority of my time with my family.
Alora Rachelle is a cult brand. My brides not-so-humble brag to their friends that they booked me, calling them just to say “We got Alora Rachelle.” And none of this is by accident, which is why I’m so eager to teach you everything that I know.

Launched the Wedding CEO in January and The Cinematic Editorial in June. What a great year of possibility.
Tripled my pricing from the previous year & booked luxury high ticket clients. Launched Associate Team (again) to end the year with a BANG.
The pandemic. Launched Master Your Marketing. Officially became "an educator" speaking at over ten virtual summits
Invested in my first course that taught me how to teach others on my expertise. Reaching burnout due to booking so many darn weddings.
Offered 1:1 Mentorships for Photographers and learned to coach students on Branding, Marketing, and Sales strategy.
Immediately went from $10-$100k. Burned out several times & systemized the biz. Experience is your best teacher, am I right?
detroit native; the best city, tbh
probably having brunch
i take polaroids on every trip
family over everything, always
Don't let anyone steal your magic
That means access to someone who has made the mistakes, seen the trends come and go, and learned lessons the hard way so that you don’t have to. When you learn with me, you are tapping into exactly what it looks and feels like to build a luxury wedding photography brand from the ground up.
