Welcome! I'm a wedding photographer, wife, and mom to a sweet baby boy we call John-John.

I started this business because I believe that every couple deserves not only gorgeous images from their wedding day, but an experience that allows them to be fully present and feel absolutely incredible!

I know that taking pictures can be an intimidating experience. Most of us are not professional models and it’s weird to think of someone you hardly know snapping away as you are supposed to “look natural!”

What a joy to capture my cousin and his fiancé in their new home! Billy and I grew up together (along with our other million cousins) and he is one of the kindest people I know. He is lighthearted, cheerful, and has become my Dad’s very best friend. He is incredibly important to my family and we are thrilled he found his perfect match in Carrie.

These two.. where to begin 🙂 Kathleen + Mike are getting married this fall after dating for a DECADE! Yes, I know they look way too young to have been together for 10 years, but they started dating when she was a sophomore and he was a senior in high school. He was a teacher’s assistant for one of her classes and luckily the teacher never found out, but everyone else knew. As you could say, the rest is history!

I would guess very few people have the experience of living in their childhood home as an adult. When Patrick and I moved into the house I lived in my entire life up until high school, it was pretty weird! The room Carla and I shared, the backyard that felt endless, the spot in the kitchen where I used to sit in time-out while the oven timer counted down :), the front room where I practiced piano… so many childhood memories held in the home I now share with my husband.

"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."


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.
