Kansas City Based Destination Wedding Photographer
Your wedding photos should hit you right in the feels. LUCKY FOR YOU - that's exactly what mine do. I aim to take photos that will make you cry, laugh, or, at the very least, deliver a considerable amount of "oohs" and "ahhs" from your moms. I want your photos to show exactly who you are. So if you’re the kind who cries through your vows, then my camera and I will be there to catch those tears and throw you a tissue (don’t worry, I got you dude). If you’re the kind of couple that gets the crowd together for group shots, well . . ., first of all I want in because I love me some tequila, but I'll be there to capture you screaming, “Yasss bitches, SHOTS!” (or whatever you say when you’re drunk AF at your own party). To me, being your photographer is more of a friendship than anything else. I want you to come to me and be like “Emma Lady Person halppp.. I need you to make me feel beautiful” and I’m going to come back to you with a “Yass Queen!” because you know what, you’ve got just as many hours in the day as Beyonce does and we can make this shit happen. I know how important these photos are and I’m here for it. I’m also here for the cake and champagne, but 99% for the photos.
Emma is absolutely amazing!!! I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to shoot our wedding! She has a special talent for capturing emotion and authentic moments as they unfold. It’s absolutely incredible the photos that this girl can produce!!!! Not only that, but she takes the time to hand edit every single photo so that no detail is missed. She’s insanely passionate about what she does and she takes a lot of pride in her work, which is definitely a quality to be admired. I’m so completely in love with each and every photo she took from our wedding. All the emotions come flooding back to me every time I look at them. I could not be more more clear when I say YOU HAVE TO HIRE EMMA JOHNSON TO BE YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER. I can 100% guarantee that you won’t be disappointed!!!!!
Where do I begin?! Emma is INCREDIBLE! If you do not hire her, you are making a big mistake! Not only are her pictures unreal, she is the sweetest, funniest, and most personable human ever! My husband and I have always been awkward in front of the camera, but she made us feel so comfortable and we had a blast taking our engagement pictures! We didn’t want it to end! After you work with her one time, I promise you will leave wanting her to be your new best friend! Not only that, but I am so in love with EVERY SINGLE ONE of our engagement pictures and will cherish them forever. She is professional, creative, and so much fun to work with! I could go on and on about how amazing she is, but seriously, do yourself a favor and hire her now! Emma is the best of the best!!
Emma, also known as The Bold Americana, was easily the best decision I could have made in regards to my wedding. From the first time I met her, I KNEW she was the perfect choice to capture the best day of my life and I turned out to be 100% RIGHT! She was so easy to work with, always going above and beyond to make me feel at ease, she settles wedding jitters and makes you laugh and really gets to know you...you aren't just one of many with her. You mean something and it shows! Aside from wanting her to be a lifelong friend of mine now (which tells you everything about her personality and the lovely person that she is) I also cannot say enough wonderful things about her work. On a cold December day, she took a bazillion photos and every single one came out GOLD. They are absolutely the most beautiful photos I've ever seen in my life, and I will always cherish them. She worked so hard yet you'd never know if she was ever stressed or tired or cold (although she totally had to be), she was too busy making us laugh and capturing us all perfectly! Everyone that met her at the wedding fell in love with her like I did, and I've received non-stop compliments on my photos. Seriously, if you haven't hired her yet, DO IT NOW. It's the best choice you'll make, I promise.
I can't say enough about Emma! She is simply amazing and her work truly shows just that. My husband and I fell in love with our wedding photos. She is so kind, genuine and down to earth. She captured moments that I would have never even thought of and she captured them beautifully. Her passion for the couples that she works with is infectious and we absolutely adored her. If you hire her as your photographer, you will not he disappointed. This gal knows what she is doing and she is doing a bomb job at it! We love you, Emma! Thank you so very much again for capturing our day and being so great. Hire her! You won't regret it!
If you are thinking about hiring Emma...stop thinking and just do it! I was lucky enough to have this sweet soul capture my day and I couldn't be happier with the photos. Emma has a beautiful eye and a major talent for capturing the genuine moments of your wedding day that you'll actually want to remember. She is incredibly easy to work with and I mean this as a massive compliment when I say I barely even noticed she was there half the time. It was like having a dear friend with a very nice camera hanging out with me and my family all day. Hire Emma and you'll end up with some incredible photos and most likely a new friend.
After the wedding, at the airport on my way home from our honeymoon, I could not believe it when I received an email from Emma saying all our photos were ready for download. LESS THAN 2 WEEKS AFTER THE WEDDING!!!! I sat in the airport, and cried happy tears going through the photos. They were more than I could have ever dreamed. Emma captured moments of the wedding that were a perfect glimpse in time and a perfect record of the emotion and happiness that filled the room. Everything that I wanted captured, she captured and so much more. Its been a few weeks since the wedding, and I'm still going through the photos everyday, re-living it and noticing new things all the time. I learnt that on your wedding day, the people around you are so important. My day was surrounded by happy, loving people. Emma was the best decision we made. I wish we could do it all again. If you dont hire Emma, you're actually crazy.
Time and time again I listened to my friends and family's Wedding Photographer horror stories! Because of this I took special care into seeking out a credible photographer that had an 'eye' for a perfect shot... and let me tell ya... THIS GIRL HAS IT GOING ON! From the very beginning, you receive an inspiring brochure on her packages that will seriously make you want to get married right then and there! When it comes to the big day.. let me tell you my now husband and I are incredibly awkward and hadn't had professional photos done before... but this was not a problem for Emma! She was great at loosening us up at our wedding in humorous ways and provided great direction for our photos! Everyone has been so impressed by her quality, but even more that she really went with the flow of the event, always capturing our special moments. Could not thank her enough and would suggester her to absolutely EVERYONE! <3
My wife and I chose Emma to be our wedding photographer and it was the best decision we could’ve made! Emma captured our big day better than we could’ve imagined. She’s fun, easy to work with, and gets the best out of the people she photographs. Some other photographers I’ve been around have been bossy and straight up mean, but our wedding party and I never once felt that from Emma, she keeps it light and lively. The location for our wedding party photos was set in the middle of a basin, surrounded by mountains, and Emma took the time to scout it out for us to make sure the spot was just right. The portraits of my wife and I were intimate and fun. Emma even went out of her way to bring New Years Eve themed party hats, glasses, and confetti, which helped make our pictures turn out even better. We look at the pictures now and wish for the chance to go back and re-do the whole day. Emma is a great friend and an even better photographer, my wife and I would highly recommend her to anyone. We can’t wait to put our wedding attire back on, head to a quirky spot, and take some more photos with Emma.
We got married in the fall of 2017 and Emma was instrumental in our wedding day being the most memorable day of our lives thus far! We found Emma somewhat by accident after browsing through Instagram—we were both quite amazed at her body of work! After meeting her in person, our suspicions were confirmed: she was the perfect person for the job.
I wouldn’t want anybody else capturing our perfect day! She has such an amazing eye and takes beautiful photos. We love our wedding pictures so much...she sent the finalized photos over pretty quickly too! <3
