“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!”

“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'll never forget she wanted me to make a serious face and she told me to pretend someone was "stealing my chipotle" and it worked! Ha! Shoots with her never feel posed or forced because she's so good at capturing the true candid moments. Ten stars for Emma!!!”

Mike + Caylin's Winter Engagement Session

Two days ago I had the pleasure of enduring the cold weather for Mike and Caylin's engagement session. We ran around, got warm, and I third wheeled while they cuddled each other. It was the best way to spend an afternoon when it's below freezing!
