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

What a joy to witness Brent and Corbin’s relationship and capture their wedding. The day began with perfect, sunny fall weather. Brent and Corbin are so thoughtful and invited Patrick and I to enjoy lunch together, catch up, and fuel up for the day ahead!

“And most of all, never ever lose that big personality.” Kim wiped away a tear as she finished reading Ben’s letter. A tear that she had fought back as she read page after page of him professing his love, loyalty, and respect for her. That single tear was the perfect symbol of this exciting, overwhelming moment as they prepared to say their marriage vows and unite their lives forever.
