Emily was involved with brainstorming plans and ideas and set a relaxed tone and feeling right off the bat. Emily is not only talented, but she has a lovely and genuine soul. She created a safe place where we could be ourselves and completely live in the moment, allowing all the experiences and feels to sink in. With her artistic eye, and her own personal love for nature, she was able to capture all the beauty of the forest, along with our laughter (there was so much laughter!), and the joy and love we experienced.


Working with Emily was always super easy, straightforward, and just down right enjoyable! She is the most easy going person and so helpful. My fiancé and I were planning an Alaskan elopement on a whim and she was a big help with planning and helping to iron out all the small details.


She helps make the whole day feel comfortable and fun. She is down for anything and everything so she can help make your day feel extremely unique and personal! She was helpful in the planning process with getting permits and reaching out to some people for clarifying questions. After the wedding, she gifted us with an awesome package that showed how personal she is with her clients. She was by far the best investment in our wedding!


No poses. No fake laughing. Just a photographer who gets to know her couples, allows them to be in their element, and captures moments you didn’t even realize were happening.


She had so many great ideas that we would have never thought about without her expertise. Emily worked hard to find amazing locations and adventure ideas that would make our day and photos extra special.


Our elopement experience with her was perfect in every way. She worked hard in finding the perfect spots for our pictures, helping us become less awkward, and truly getting to know us.


You will not regret waiting a little while for the final photo delivery when you’re 70 years old and feel like you’re hopping into a time machine. She is magic. Don’t rush magic.
