Welcome! I'm a photographer, wife, mom to a sweet baby boy we call John-John, and am expecting another little boy in June.

I've started blogging to share the ideas, products, and discoveries that have made my life easier and more intentional in hopes they will do the same for you!

Hi! I'm Emily






DC Wharf Fall Engagement: Brent + Corbin



We have been lucky enough to know Brent and Corbin since Patrick began teaching. Brent was a source of guidance for Patrick in the early days when he felt overwhelmed in his role. With a smile and a joke, Brent always knew how to help Pat with his classroom challenges. I was lucky enough to spend time with him outside of the school setting at lots of social gatherings. Me and the other significant others joked that we needed to start the DC Teacher-Spouse Support Club for ourselves because the conversation always turned to their students, even late on a Saturday night. Again, with a smile and a joke, Brent was the center of the party with Corbin right by his side.

Since those early days, Brent and Corbin have moved many times and this fall they will get married in their new home city of Chicago! I can’t wait to capture this loving, dynamic couple as they say yes to forever together. It is going to be an incredible occasion and I am so honored to be able to photograph it for them! Here are a few of their engagement images taken on a frigid day in November at the DC Wharf. Enjoy!


If you're looking for photography that is so much more than just gorgeous images, it's an experience that allows you to be fully present with the ones you love, you're in the right place.
