"We could not have found a better photographer than Emma! She is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!"

We could not have found a better photographer than Emma! She is absolutely AMAZING!!! She completed our engagement photos as well as our wedding and we could not be happier with the quality and quantity that she provided. She was able to make taking photos fun and captured all of the moments you want to look back on for years to come. I would recommend Emma to anyone time and time again because not only is she timely, professional and extremely talented she is an absolute blast to be around!! Book Emma and you will get the best of the best!

"If you are thinking about hiring Emma... stop think and just do 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.

"Emma was undoubtedly the best decision I made for my wedding"

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 don’t hire Emma, you're actually crazy.

"Emma was stellar!"

Emma was stellar! She got to know us a little before the wedding, so we were able to better plan our photo style and be our genuine selves. She was so patient and positive too. We had some crazy weather for our ceremony, but she stayed the course, and the finished product looked beautiful. She's a pro!

"Working with Emma is like going to Disneyland"

Working with Emma is like going to Disneyland...she makes the shoot SO exciting! She's extremely silly and hypes you up while you're in front of the camera to get the best photos possible. She also says a lot of dad jokes which helps with the natural laughter. She photographed my boyfriend and I in Las Vegas, NV at our cabin in Mt Charleston. We also ventured into some surrounding mountain terrain. We wanted to get some real cute and cozy photos since we are in a long distance relationship - hey, they help in tough times! Nathan and I are naturally a really lovey and touchy couple and Emma did such an amazing job at capturing each moment of our love.

"Emma made all of my wedding photo dreams come true!"

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!

"Absolutely loved working with her!"

What a wonderful experience! Emma was stealthy, organized and absolutely perfection at capturing the emotion of the day without distracting from the ceremony and celebration! She didn't just 'photograph' the event, she complimented it by using filters and angles that pull the viewer in, allowing them to feel the romance and fun, actually becoming part of it! Absolutely loved working with her!

"This girl has it going on!"

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

"Emma was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding"

Emma was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Not only was she crazy talented, competent, professional, and communicative, she was easy and wonderful to be around. Your wedding day has some very intimate moments and the wrong person can feel intrusive and awkward. Emma felt like a supportive, calm friend (with a very important job to do) in the midst of emotional and stressful moments. She was focused and directive and somehow managed to herd us all into the right shots without it feeling overly managed. My wedding coordinators also sang her praise saying how great she was to work with. And it's really nice to see smiles behind the camera as well. She enjoys her jobs, enjoys weddings, and it shows. Thanks, Emma, for capturing the hilarity, the sacred and the joy.

"Emma even went out of her way to bring New Year's Eve themed party hats, glasses and confetti, which helped make our pictures turn out even better"

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.

"Our wedding day was absolute chaos but Emma pulled it off"

Our wedding day was absolute chaos but Emma pulled it off. She went above and beyond to make sure we got the things we wanted (including recreating a scenario or two a week later!!) Her photos are gorgeous and she makes you feel like the most important person in the world. One MAJOR pro is that you won’t be waiting forever to get your photos back with Emma like you do with a lot of wedding photographers. She shoots a wedding, works on that wedding until it’s done, and sends it to you! She also stays in contact with you no matter how far before or after your event. Hiring her again for next year already and so excited to blow her photos up and hang em on the wall! ❤️

"Made us look like celebrities!"

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.

"If there was a 10-star rating, I would give it"

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!

"Emma was genuine, accommodating"

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.

"Absolutely adored working with Emma"

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!

"Nothing short of amazing"

Emma is nothing short of amazing! She makes it a point to meet with you beforehand to get to know you as a couple. We spent at least an hour effortlessly chatting at a nearby coffee shop a week before working with Emma. During the shoot, she did anything in her power to make sure we were comfortable in front of the camera. Emma makes sure to catch all of the sweet moments in between and those cute, little quirks that you do as a couple but don’t realize, yes, those too! You seriously cannot go wrong with Emma.
