but first, let me formally introduce myself...

oh hey,

Fancy meeting you here!

Well, actually we haven’t met because you’re looking at this through a computer screen or your cell phone because you probably need a photographer. Have no fear, we can use both of those things to connect here in juuuust a sec.

I’m Emily,

Lover of laughter, drinker of too much wine, wanderer of all the pretty places in this world and snuggler of all pups that come within arms reach. But most importantly I’m the lady behind this biz who was called to photography by the Lord after losing my memory… Yep, you heard that right… I’ve got a video below that explains it all!

The most common question I hear is:

WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT THAN ALL THE OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS?

"WHAT makes me different is my WHY"

I WAS ONCE THE GIRL WHO COULDN'T REMEMBER...

AND NOW I AM THE GIRL WHO GETS TO GIVE YOU MEMORIES YOU NEVER HAVE TO FORGET.

You get one chance at today, so why not live it to your fullest & make the BEST memories in the process?!

WHO'S WITH ME?

REVIEWS

Emily has got it. the passion, the vision, the enthusiasm.

Ashley + Porsch

Emily has got it. She's got the passion, the vision, the enthusiasm, and the incredible talent to capture the truth in moments that will take your breath away for years to come. The cherry on top of that, is that she's a genuinely kind, caring, adorable human who you can't help but feel an instant connection with. We feel so fortunate, blessed, and excited to have chosen Emily to document our engagement and wedding. For the first time, we have a visual time capsule of our love, and it's the most beautiful gift imaginable. If you want to come away with an amazing, real, beautifully executed album AND have a ton of fun while making it... look no further!

captures the raw emotion and allow you to not only see but really FEEL the parts of the day that weren't visible to you in the moment

Alex + Kelley

If you're looking for a wedding photographer who will capture the raw emotion and allow you to not only see but really FEEL the parts of the day that weren't visible to you in the moment, go with Emily Vandehey! She's amazing, bubbly, efficient, and so fun to work with. Thank you for capturing our special day!

Emily is the most kind, patient, TALENTED, spiritually connected, loving, generous and fabulous human being

Katherine + Garett

I have to start at the beginning because this is the first vendor we found, and she was in it with us for the LONG HAUL! Emily is the most kind, patient, TALENTED, spiritually connected, loving, generous and fabulous human being. I loved her as a person even before I fell in love with her talents as a photographer. We met on a “blind date” at Starbucks when our puppy was just a baby squirming around and the comfort Emily gave me as a lost young bride (and new dog mom) I can’t put into words. We had 3 photo shoots together over the course of this wedding and without droning on like I want to I’ll just say, Emily takes situations that are in shambles (not exaggerating: worst days, pouring down rain, mass chaos, unforeseen schedule changes, at your breaking point) and turns them into the best, most wonderful memory of your life. NO NOT JUST IN THE PHOTOS! She changes your mood and helps you focus on the blessings and the joys. She is more than an artist, she’ll be your friend and your therapist and your guardian angel. I can’t say enough. If you’re lucky enough to catch an opening in her schedule, TAKE IT!

she automatically makes you feel relaxed and comfortable no matter how unphotogenic you think you are

Ben + Bri

Emily is amazing! Her photos are gorgeous and she automatically makes you feel relaxed and comfortable no matter how unphotogenic you think you are. She was also so awesome the day of, ready to help out with any dramas that arise.

The time and dedication she puts into her work & those around her cannot be beat.

Hayley + Xander

Wow, I seriously don't know where to start with this gal! Emily is truly exceptional. The time and dedication she puts into her work & those around her cannot be beat. She has an incredible heart and will always go the extra mile to make you smile & laugh! My fiancé & I have had three sessions with her now, and she has exceeded our expectations each & every time! You want a killer landscape & one hell of an adventure? Emily is your girl! Whatever you envision, Emily can deliver.

She approached the project with humor, professionalism and a sense of fun 

Austin + Krystal

We had a wonderful experience having our engagement photos done with Emily. She approached the project with humor, professionalism and a sense of fun that made the whole process very enjoyable. Our photos turned out excellent and we cannot recommend her enough.

No matter how nervous or awkward you are, she talks you through everything.

Marissa + Shane

I adore Emily! The very first time I ever met her, I felt like I knew her forever. She is so genuine and kind, so easy to talk to! No matter how nervous or awkward you are, she talks you through everything which in turns makes all your photos extremely genuine and candid. I am in love with each and every picture i got from em and will absolutely be using her for many times to come!

I always recommend her. 10/10.

Clay + Rebecka

Emily is absolutely phenomenal. She has such a compassionate heart and is an amazing photographer. She makes the uncomfortable idea of someone taking pictures of you seem so natural. I always recommend her. 10/10

She is everything we could’ve asked for and then some

Karlie + James

We had the pleasure of getting our engagement pictures done by the absolutely amazing Emily. She is one of the most genuine, down to earth, loving, funny humans I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She was so patient with scheduling conflicts. Made every second from the moment we met more fun than the last. She had us hyped up, laughing, dancing and hiking up the side of a sand mountain. She is everything we could’ve asked for and then some. I cannot say enough good things about this lady.

Emily made our experience one to remember!

Micayla + George

I wish we could go back and do it all over again! Emily made our experience one to remember! Her creative, bubbly, and genuine personality made our entire session feel comfortable and natural. If you have high expectations, she will exceed them! We are completely in love with our photos and can hardly wait to book with her again!
