"Emily made us feel (and look!) like true supermodels! With her humor, guidance, and enthusiasm our wedding photos are more than we could have hoped for."

- catherine

"She made us feel comfortable and like our best selves throughout. We couldn't have asked for anything more! Emily is poised, professional, super friendly, and you'll probably be best friends by the time the shoot is over. "

- alexis

"Her style is the perfect mix between documentary and fine art: she captured the real candid moments while also directing us into picture-perfect poses with an eye for the details. Plus, she is so sweet!"

- jessica M.

"She clearly has an intuitive talent that is rare in any field. Nothing compares to the professionalism, warmth, care, and instinct that Emily possesses. Her photos are gorgeous no matter what!"

- jessica S.

"She captured our happiness and gave us priceless memories from a day where we have so few! She is creative, super fun, and a joy to work with."
