“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!”

“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.”

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!)

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.

“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!”

Tyler and Skyler.... Doesn't that just sound so perfect?! That sounds like the names of two best buds. It's even more perfect that these two lovers are actually best friends and engaged. The chemistry these two people have together is so intoxicating and infectious. Even I was sitting there thinking, " OMG I just want to go home and hug my person!"

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!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It's that time of year... The time when we say our goodbyes to the year that's passed. Where we praise our accomplishments and embrace our not so brilliant moments. NYE is about reflection for me, and how far I have come since the beginning of the year. 2017 was the year my business actually took off!

If there was a contest for photographers on who shot the most beautiful couple in 2017, I'm pretty sure I'd give everyone a run for their money. Luke and Ashtyne are not only actual supermodels, but complete and total starcrossed lovers.
