That I will show up for you. I will protect your memories as if they were my own because I know what it feels like to lose your memories and feared I wouldn’t get them back. That your story is safe with me. That you can share your insecurities with me and I will help melt them away. I will value what you value most in your dream day because this is not about me, it is about you and making sure that all your dreams come through and your joy shines through in every image. Finally, that it will be SO FUN and be the best memories of your lifetime.
This job is the biggest BLESSING that the Lord has ever given me because it allows me to do what I was made to do: SERVE OTHERS. Nothing makes me happier than lifting the weight and the stresses of planning a wedding from my couples so they can enjoy this season as it moves so quickly. From beginning to end, you will get every part of me so I can serve you best in these times. From vendor suggestions, outfit inspo, location assistance and timeline creation, I am here for you through and through.
We may start as strangers but after just a short amount of time together we will feel like we’ve known each other for years. I cannot tell you how many times I hear this when we meet for the first time at your session “Oh my gosh, it’s so great to FINALLY meet you, even though I feel like I have known you forever!!” That is the feeling that people have because I invest right back into every single client and make sure that their experience is comfortable, joy-filled and true to who they are because I get to know you as humans and not just as subjects in an image.
"I really can’t recommend Emily enough. She is so talented, so professional and so passionate in what she does. Our photo session with Emily during the sandstorm turned out great. The pictures are amazing until this day we still got so many compliments from our family and friends who has seen them. The one thing we love most about Emily is she is so sweet and so friendly. The moment we met Emily, we instantly felt like meeting an old friend. Me and my husband are naturally camera shy but Emily make those awkward moment seem so fun and we felt like a rockstar. I seriously can’t recommend Emily enough. I am already planning for our 5 years anniversary photo session with Emily in the future. If you don’t trust me see the photos for yourself and thanks me later."
"Words cannot express how special you are to us & how lucky we feel that you came ALL THIS WAY to shoot our wedding. You are a once in a lifetime person & to get to call you our friend & photographer feels unreal. You are impacting people in unbelievable ways & we feel so blessed by you!"
"Thank you so incredibly much for helping me capture my proposal to Jess!! I could not have done this without you! Your spectacular attention to details like her recognizing your car, if she would have her nails done & the suggestion of bringing champagne are the personal touches that you bring that makes you extraordinary at what you do!
All of this makes me even more excited for you to (hopefully, pretty please) shoot our wedding when the time comes!
Again, thank you thank you thank you for helping to make this special moment even more memorable!"
"Thank you so much for being a part of our big day. We are so honored to have such a talented photographer capture so many special moments for us and we couldn’t have done this day without you! We appreciate you so much!"
"We cannot thank you enough for capturing this day for us. From the beginning, we knew that we wanted you as a photographer, so much so that this date was planned around your availability, and thank goodness we did, because you’re amazing!
You are so detail oriented and focused on making this day special for us. You have been so great to communicate with through this process and have introduced us to so many other vendors. We couldn’t imagine anyone else photographing this day."
"I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you and your skills. You relieve so much stress during the planning process. You were the first thing I was sure about besides Nate of course when planning the wedding. I knew if I got married in a dumpster wearing paper bags it wouldn’t matter because you would make it look good. Thank you for being my number one fan since before we were engaged."
"Thank you for being not only an amazing photographer to work with, but an all-around incredible human being who feels more like a friend than a vendor we hired! You killed it on our wedding day from keeping us feeling calm and relaxed, to finding an amazing waterfall spot, shooting in the rain, and once again capturing the most amazing photographs that are timeless and will be treasured by us forever."
"You make us feel beautiful. Thank you for capturing our day and our story so beautifully I am so glad we get to share it with you. Your sweet spirit and joyful laugh has been so contagious and healing. I can’t imagine anyone else more perfect to capture our day. Your gift is telling stories. Thank you for taking time to tell ours. We love you!"
"Where do I even begin. Thank you for capturing our day in every way I didn’t think was even possible. You are such an amazing person inside and out and we will be forever grateful for you! You’ll became such a huge part of our family. We love you we adore you. Thank you thank you thank you. When bottom of our hearts."
"Thank you so much for working with us and helping us through these crazy times. We are thankful for you and your willingness to adapt with us and we are so grateful to have met you."
"Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you for capturing our day and the day after! It was amazing and you were too. The pictures and your presence made it one to remember."
