The big day calls for big moments and big memories. Not only is this day for you and your boo thang, but you get to share it with all of the people that matter the most to you. From the bomb food to the bouquet toss, the hilarious speeches to the dances, the moment you said ‘I do’ to your first walk together, all of these are the moments that I get to capture for you. Years from now, you and your honey will sit down and look at this album together and remember how freaking magical your day was. And how magical your love still is. These unforgettable moments, those are the ones that I want you to have forever.
We knew we wanted a photographer that made us feel comfortable first and foremost, and after our first Skype session/meet and greet, Blake and I had no doubt we had made the right decision! That really set the tone for the rest of our experience. Our engagement session was a blast, she made it fun and comfortable (important for my camera shy guy!). When our wedding day rolled around, she really knocked our socks off. We had an extremely tight timeline, and Emma made (clap) it (clap) happen! Our wedding party, friends, and family raved about her skill, and professionalism as well. She was able to command the day with ease and finesse. I remember thinking I have nothing to worry about, because I was confident in Emma taking the lead. And that's truly a gift to the bride!

Am I a cliche wedding photographer that says stuff like "I love love!"? Probably not. But do I feel that way underneath this messy bun and sassy, sarcastic humor? You betcha.
I promise I will have my camera ready and waiting for the moment mom wipes a tear from her eye during your sister's speech (Fun fact: my love language is words of affirmation so toasts and handwritten vows are my favorite parts of a wedding day - so you better believe there will be some amazing shots from those moments!), for your bridesmaids getting down to some old school 90’s music on the dance floor, and for the moment your partner sneaks a quick wink to you (or butt grab - whatever floats your boat!) during the ceremony. I know moments like these are so important to you, and they are important to me too. I got you fam!
Whether you're getting married in a huge venue with hundreds of your friends and family, or eloping in some dreamy little corner of the world, I am here to ensure no moment goes by too quickly. By the end of it, you will have loads of Instagram worthy photos!
They liked it, so they put a ring on it! You two crazy in love kids have made it real official, so let’s document it! Is there a shoot that you’ve always wanted to recreate? Where is your favorite place? Do you have a fancy coordinating ‘fit that you’ve always wanted to rock but couldn’t find a reason to? Engagement sessions are awesome because it’s all about you two and your love. And on top of that, we get to be creative too. Not only will you get comfortable in front of the camera, but it’ll be the start of our beautiful friendship! These will be the kind of images that you’ll be putting up as wall art in your place, trust. And once it comes time for your wedding (eeeeee!), any awkwardness you may have felt when getting your pic taken will be gone. And anything that can get taken off of your plate on your big day is a huge YAS!
Expect to see your gallery in your inbox between 4-6 weeks after your wedding date. But fear not! Sneak peaks will be posted on social media so you can show off some of the best moments of the day!
I always recommend doing a first look and getting all your scheduled photos out of the way before the ceremony (but we can talk about it later). I will guide you on poses when it's time for the Couple photos, Wedding Party, and Family photos. I want this to be the easy, fun, and stress-free part of your day.
Let's set up your engagement session! We can discuss the timing and location for your session, but I want this session to be all about you and your boo! Let's do something awesome - hop on a sailboat, visit your favorite brewery, or take a stroll at your favorite beach with your pup. Whatever you want to do, let's do it!
