Meet the Team

Rachel May – Workshop Host

I’m Rachel May, owner/ lead photographer/ wear all the hats gal of Rachel May Photography. When I am not shooting, you will either find me in the yard in a pair of wellies tending to our ducks and garden or off on a drive with my fam. I believe you only have one life to live, and I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to spend it all working. So, when I am working - I’m passionate, strategic, and detail oriented - to get the job done and done well. During the workshop, I’ll be sharing my story about how I brought my business from a place of hindering my family to being a blessing. My heart behind this workshop is to show you how to make your business work for you in a way that satisfies the artist within as well as the entrepreneur’s desire to succeed.

AME is a full service planning and design studio with a style that is organic, elegant, & timeless with a touch of personality.
