about us 

Both creative and determined at a young age, we each followed our passion for photography furthering our education by attending Hallmark Institute of Photography in 2007. Meeting there, joining together, falling in love, then graduating, we were wed in 2009 among our family and friends in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Quickly afterwards, we launched our photography business, which allowed us to photograph nationally & internationally. While growing our business, we also grew our family by double, adding two beautiful sons, Henry & August. While our business was booming, we jumped on the opportunity to partner alongside Rustic Manor 1848 to launch Manor Studios 1848. We are honored and humbled to be able to combine our success & talents along side Rustic Manor 1848. 

It is an honor to document life's most cherished moments. 


“Billy & Rachel were both very prompt, organized, creative, and hard working. It was very apparent to everyone that they love what they do & feel very comfortable & confident in their roles. Both my husband & I had best time photographing with them” 
— - Kim & James
“Every detail was attended to, and every shot was a perfect moment. We would like to thank Billy & Rachel from the bottom of our hearts.”
