About emily

This is me, Emily. I’m just a girl who found a camera really young, watched her dad shoot weddings for ten years, and fell in love with weddings in the process. 
I love when a father of a bride sees his daughter for the first time in her wedding dress, and realizes that his little girl isn’t so little anymore. I love the look of a groom seeing his bride, his future, and knowing it all starts now. I love when couples decide to do WHATEVER they want for their day because truly IT'S ABOUT YOU ANYWAY. 

I would LOVE to connect with you over some coffee. I want to see your face light up when you think about what will be the best day of your life. I am here to cheer you on, and encourage you to do WHAT YOU WANT. 

I would love to help you in your journey, answer all the questions, and make this process easier for you. 

Let's be friends!
