“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.”

“Working with Emma was a dream. My now husband and I are not a couple that love to take pictures. She not only made two awkward people feel comfortable taking pictures, but truly captured so much of our personality and made us beyond comfortable. Not to mention took some of THE MOST amazing pictures. Even when we were running out of daylight to take pictures she was calm and made us feel like there was nothing to worry about. She is truly a superhuman. I had sneak peeks the first day of our honeymoon and an entire collection shortly after getting back...I’m talking a full collection in less than 2 weeks! I can’t express how grateful I am to Emma and her second shooter Emily for capturing and celebrating our day with us. I would highly recommend working with Emma!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

“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.”

“I cannot express enough how much we absolutely ADORED working Emma (otherwise known as the Bold Americana). She is such a genuine person who truly cares about her clients and their needs. I constantly get compliments on our photos, her work is truly amazing. She does not capture faces she captures emotion, raw, beautiful emotion. She directs shoots effortlessly taking all the stress of being photographed away. Receiving our wedding photos was like reliving our wedding and all the happy memories all over again. Our families could also not stop talking about how much they loved working with her too. She is fun, professional and easy-going. Thank you, Emma!!!”

“From day one, Emma was genuine, accommodating, and put me at ease. She has an incredible gift and talent of capturing deep emotions within a still photograph. She is a joy to be around and adds so much life and fun to the day! She edited and delivered our pictures quickly and we cried tears of joy watching how she created such great pictures of people who are normally uncomfortable in front of a camera. Want to be able to feel how joyous your love is through a picture? Booking The Bold Americana is a no brainer- just do it.”

Amsterdam is magical. Its full of some of the hottest people I have ever seen, some of the best food I have ever ate, and to some of the craziest nights I have ever experienced. Most days I would ride my bike with no destination in mind just to enjoy the scenery and explore.

I was so flattered when Megan of Julian Events asked me to be apart of this styled shoot! We were just getting out of a cold front here in Kansas City where I was convinced it was never going to be spring here, so when she sent me a mood board with warm colors and tropical vibes I was all in!

As I am writing this in a cafe an Edinburgh, Scotland I want everyone to know that destination weddings are 100% possible and not as daunting as it seems to plan. They are a way to experience a different culture, bond with family and friends, and party really fucking hard (You're getting married! Why not go big!)

“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.”

“Organizing your marriage also means choosing the best people to entrust the story of one of the most important days of your life. We have spoken to many photographers, each with their own style, with their own beliefs, with their own way of working. All very professional in describing their service, and in proposing their packages. We chose the only one who didn't talk about any of this, but that she limited herself to asking us who WE were and what WE liked, the only one who was really interested in US and who showed immediately the will to tell our Best story. If there was a 10-star rating I would give it. Emma is so incredibly talented and knows how to capture art worthy shots. She is worth every penny and more! We will cherish these photos for a lifetime. I can't thank Her enough. So, do yourself a favor and book this beautiful and creative soul now! Emma’s artistic eye beautiful soul, love for adventure will leave you speechless. I promise. She’s everything you need and more In a photographer. We love you Emma!”

I met Austin and Haley last year at my friends Mackenzie and Kyle's Wedding in Austin TX. We sat down next to each other at the reception and bonded over skateboarding, living in California, and wedding cakes. They have been together for almost 8 years and are still so obsessed with each other that at points it brings tears to my eyes. Seriously, you should find their wedding video on the internet.. it'll bring actual tears to your eyeballs.

Last year Jessica reached out to me in one of the best ways you could reach out to a photographer. Telling me that she loved my work and wanted to immediately book me for her wedding. As a wedding photographer and small business owner I put so much integrity and time into making my work and my business stand out, so when I get people that truly value me and aren't just shopping for the best deal, I just want to virtually give them the biggest hug and tell them thank you for making me feel like all my hard work is paying off.

“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! “
