I cannot wait to chat with you and hear all about you & your honey! Upon receiving your inquiry, I will send over a full pricing guide according to your wedding details + any additional pieces of information to help carefully create the BEST. DAY. EVER!
Inquiries will be responded to ASAP, which generally looks like 1-3 days!
I offer each couple the option to add a second shooter for each wedding. I feel that they are needed on a case to case basis for me personally. If you are getting ready at 2 different locations, have a guest count of over 250 and value candid shots of guests at all times, or just want more perspectives throughout the day, then a second shooter should be added. Otherwise, I am confident shooting solo!
I always encourage each couple to pick a spot with meaning to them so we can tell their story best. We will start with a location they love or have wanted to shoot at. Then I will send over what colors are best to be photographed in there. Based on the location, will help advise you on what to wear as a couple. There are definitely do’s and don’ts for wardrobe and I’ll fill you in with all the dets. Then let’s meet up for a drink beforehand and just get comfortable, then we will adventure to our location together. We spend the next hour taking in the views at sunset and having a freaking AMAZING time. Think of it as a date, with a little paparazzi. Sessions take place on M-Th at sunrise or sunset because weekends are reserved for weddings + self care.
That’s a YES from me, ALWAYS. My bags are packed, baby! I LOVE traveling.
Check out my TRAVEL SCHEDULE to see if I am near you! I love getting to shoot in new places with new friends!

60+ for engagements & couple sessions. You can expect approximately 50+ per hour on a wedding day. This question is hard because I don’t hold back when it comes to photos. If there is a lot of action taking place, you’re going to get a TON of photos. If it’s a little slower or lots of travel factored in, then you will get less as there won’t be as much time spent shooting.
Filling out one of my booking forms based on what you are inquiring for and then we can email from there. Every client gets their own workspace that keeps all of our emails, files, info, details, etc. organized so I can serve you best from beginning to end. I receive countless DMs a day on instagram and we all know how easy it is to get distracted on there. I see pretty pictures and suddenly I forgot why in the heck I got on the app in the first place. Email or calling me is the best way to get a quick answer!
Fill out this FORM, I will respond to you within 1-3 days and would LOVE to connect on the phone to actually hear your voice, yes that’s VERY important to me, and then we will iron out all the details. A 50% non-refundable retainer will be due 72 hours after receiving the contract to secure your date, and the remaining balance will be paid in full 1 month before the wedding. We will also pick a date / location for your engagement session if you want one.
I found that my soul is lit on fire when I am working with couples. I feel that it is very important to not be a jack of all trades and to master one form of photography. So my primary focus is on couples and weddings. However, I do offer senior sessions (click HERE for more info) and a few rounds of
mini sessions each year that can be used for any photography service. Sign up for my EMAIL LIST to get updates on those dates + deals!
I shoot with 2 cards at EVERY session, and that dual writes so I have a back-up as soon as the shutter is clicked.
I back up all images on 2 hard drives immediately, and never delete a card until the session has been delivered.
Then I basically take those to the grave with me.
I’m with you from the moment your name pops up in my inbox until the day I send over your photos + beyond like 99% of the time. Things that cost money on my end: insurance, editing software, camera gear / equipment, the computer I am working on to email and edit, workflow systems, hard drives that your photos are stored on, travel, coordinating with vendors, creating timelines, Facetime and calls to make sure we are on the same page & running smoothly, editing takes time, and A LOT of it.
Time - it's a very valuable thing and I spend lots of it just investing back into the people investing in me as their photographer. I can promise you that you are paying for much more than just 8 hours on your wedding day. Your investment goes right back into you and your honey and making sure you have the wedding day you have always dreamed of.
AS SOON AS YOU GET THEM! Sneaks are meant for you to share, that’s why I get them to you so quickly… I had the hardest time waiting for any of my own images when I was on the other side of the camera, so I like to get you some teasers ASAP. My only requirement is to tag EMILY VANDEHEY PHOTOGRAPHY when you share to properly credit me. I am humbled to share that it’s because of all of YOU that my business has grown so much. Word of mouth and personal recommendations are my main source of bookings.
Because we get to be children for a couple hours. We make fart jokes. I ask you to do very silly things. We’ll probably do some trust exercises. You'll do a little booty grabbing with each other, and talk about your favorite foods. Confused as heck by all this? You thought photos were "stand like this, "turn your head this way, and smile…." Welp, just come join me & experience for yourself what a true photo experience should be like. Be ready to laugh. and talk about your favorite memories as I capture new ones. If you need a little liquid courage, I encourage that too ;) Overall, just come with an open mind and we will open your heart up to this beautiful love that is right before our eyes.
