Being able to relive your grandma bust a move on the dance floor, your dad's shaky voice as he "wow"s over your dress, your solemate's vows, the best man's toast that left us all in tears, all the moments you won't want to miss,
With over 200 weddings under my belt, you can rest assured that your once in a life time best day ever will be beautifully and thoughtfully documented for you to relive again and again.
Photography is one less thing you gotta worry about, I got you.

“My husband and I are not very “natural” in front of a camera but with Emily I felt like I was. Her goal was to give us beautiful photos that showcased our love throughout our wedding day and she deliver so much more than that! I honestly can say that I would recommend her for any couple, any style of wedding, and any venue. She is a rockstar!” - Kari
"THE BEST VENDOR DECISION YOU MAKE"
"Emily went above and beyond our expectations of a wedding photographer. She has such a God-given gift of creativity, which is very evident through her work. Her calm spirit, kind smile, and patience kept my wedding day nerves at bay, making our day a totally joyful memory for us. I could go on and on, but I fully believe her work speaks for itself!" -Bailey T
"HER CALM SPIRIT, KIND SMILE, AND PATIENCE KEPT MY WEDDING DAY NERVES AT BAY."
"I cannot say enough wonderful things about Emily. The girl has a heart of gold. She and I chatted on the phone for hours before we’d signed her as our photographer, and it was obvious that her heart and soul is to serve people through her photography. She goes above and beyond in every aspect of her service. She learns her couple, their hearts, stories, priorities, and truly makes magic. Emily is such a calm presence, a sweet smile, a problem solver, a fast friend, a true GIFT." - Bethany P
"IT WAS OBVIOUS THAT HER HEART IS TO SERVE PEOPLE"
Of course I love styled details and magazine swoon worthy images and intricate tablescapes, but it's the PEOPLE, most importantly, YOUR PEOPLE, who sit around those beautifully decorated tables that matter the most. This is the one time all of them will be gathered under one roof celebrating with you. PEOPLE are what it's all about.
I want you to be able to look back at your pictures and not just see poses, but see memories. I’m not gonna ask you to look at the ground & fake laugh or put you in forced stiff poses. No, instead I’m going to help you be comfortable, help bring out your personality, and help you just be yourself. Because, after all, this is about you and the love that you share. My heart for your pictures is when you look back at them you can say "YES, THIS IS SO US!"

These are the memories that you will pass down to your family. These are your heirlooms. I remember growing up snuggled by my grandma as we would flip through old photo albums and she would tell me story after story about our family and our heritage.
we proudly offer heirloom wedding albums
pictures help us remember who we are and where we cOME from
puppers, worship music, family time, pizza, shiplap, essential oils, true crime (SSDGM), succulents, cozy blankets, impromptu singing, dance parties, and dirty chai lattes.
I'm all about the outdoors, antique family heirlooms (like my wedding ring), and I'm the proud dog mom to two spunky miniature schnauzers (I am obsessed with them #noshame). I am an extrovert + verbal processor. My ideal evening is around the table with friends surrounded by good food & deep conversation.
I met my husband, Talon, at a college campus ministry. Needless to say, we fell fast and we fell hard. We married on August 8, 2015!! We are goofy, have ridiculous inside jokes, and can usually be found binge watching Parks and Rec or The Office. He is my best friend and he pushes me to be better every single day.
I wouldn't be here today without the saving grace of Jesus. I believe in being intentional and loving others.
From the sweet subtle moments, to the wild adventures; I believe marriage is one of God's greatest gifts.
