BUCKET LIST WORTHY DESTINATIONS

YOUR ELOPEMENT EXPERIENCE IS EVERYTHING

I truly hope to get to know you on a personal level and serve you with my time + talents. A genuinely enjoyable photo experience is also something I want for every couple. Feeling safe and comfortable to be yourselves is important.

I avoid heavily-posed images and will intermittently guide you. I won’t leave you hanging there not knowing what to do. Movement in images is key. None of that “hold still and smile” stuff. Well, maybe a few of those. Calling all fun-loving folks who like to be in nature.

I edit every image you will receive. No outsourcing for someone else to do. In addition, I do not use associate shooters. When you hire Emily Hary Photography, you get me on your day. Simple as that. I take on a couple handfuls of elopements per year, in order to give you the attentive and high-grade service you deserve.
