Hello There


I keep it authentic, make it fun, & focus on telling your love story.

Hello, I’m Emily. It’s nice to meet you. 

Born in a small town in the Midwest, my work is full of wanderlust. I love books, vintage finds, and Marvel comics. In my free time you will find me curled up on the couch watching Netflix with boyfriend Taylor and our sweet Luna cat. I am a daydreamer with a travel list a mile long. As a photographer of 3 years, I appreciate the little things in life and try to find the beauty within us all. Art is what fuels the soul and I believe that art is life.  

My photography style is authentic, bright, and electric. I do my best to bring out natural emotions. I make it simple for you, keep it light, and focus on the precious candid moments that naturally occur between two people who are madly in love. I aim to tell a new story with every photo. By photography allowing us to live, inspire, and create new ideas, I believe that we can live creatively together


  1. You love my work and can’t wait to get in front of my camera.

  2. You are ready to have a little fun! There are no stiff poses in my sessions. I focus on creating candid moments and provoke natural reactions. You will smile, you will laugh, and you may even laugh so hard that you cry a little. Don’t worry- I’ll bring the tissues.

  3. You’re looking for a photographer that will be on top of it. I capture the details.

  4. And above all…. I can’t wait to tell your love story!

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS: Travel, Books, Pizza, Coffee, Lavender Everything, Gilmore Girls, Friends, Bargain Shopping, Cake, and Telling Your Love Story
