  • Rachel Southmayd
  • Hello! My name is Rachel Southmayd and I have lived my entire life in Southern Oregon in a beautiful little place called the Rogue Valley. I got my very first camera when I was six years old and I’ve been taking pictures ever since! I opened my business, Pixy Prints Photography in April of 2007 and it didn’t take me long to realize that I was doing something most people only ever dream about...I was working my dream job! I loved every aspect of it, but I especially loved my weddings I got to do. There was just something so special about documenting a couples wedding and getting to be a part in telling their story.
