Nate and Kayla / One year later in Amsterdam

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!)

“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!”

Austin and Haley / Austin, TX

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.

“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! “

“Emma made all of my wedding photo dreams come true!! The way she gets genuine personality come through each photograph is a true gift. She had all of our photos edited and returned within a week! It was so special to be able to see them right away instead of having to wait months and months like other photographers. The photos were phenomenal as well which made it worth every penny!”

Tatiana and Leo's Phuket Beach Engagement Session

Tatiana and Leo's Phuket Beach Engagement Session

Sunday morning I had the pleasure of waking up at 5am to get ready to shoot Tatiana and Leo at Karon Beach in Phuket. Leo proposed to Tatiana at the airport before their trip to Thailand. Seriously, how perfect is that? I was so stoked that I was going to shoot their engagement photos, but I was also super nervous because they are Russian and I was worried I wouldn't be able to direct as well with the language barrier.
