"she is an absolutely wonderful person"

Choosing Emily as our photographer was an easy decision based on her beautiful photos we saw and the conversation we had while inquiring with her, but it absolutely proved to be the best decision that we could have made as we worked with her throughout the wedding planning process, for our engagement photos, and on our wedding day....

"Emily has such an eye"

From the very first call with Emily, all the way through her editing some additional photos for us after our wedding, she was so wonderful to work with every step of the way! She is very communicative, timely (we got our sneak peaks within like 36 hours of our wedding!), personable, easy going, flexible, organized.. the list really goes on and on. Emily has such an eye for capturing the emotions that were felt throughout our wedding day, and the end results are just so beautiful with her editing style. You will not be disappointed with Emily as your photographer!

"It was a joy working with her"

My husband, Anthony, and I loved using Emily as our wedding photographer! She was very responsive, attentive and knew how to capture our day perfectly. She is a pro and really helped put me at ease during my big day. It was a joy working with her.
