Emma is absolutely amazing!!! I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to shoot our wedding! She has a special talent for capturing emotion and authentic moments as they unfold. It’s absolutely incredible the photos that this girl can produce!!!! Not only that, but she takes the time to hand edit every single photo so that no detail is missed. She’s insanely passionate about what she does and she takes a lot of pride in her work, which is definitely a quality to be admired. I’m so completely in love with each and every photo she took from our wedding. All the emotions come flooding back to me every time I look at them. I could not be more more clear when I say YOU HAVE TO HIRE EMMA JOHNSON TO BE YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER. I can 100% guarantee that you won’t be disappointed!!!!!
Where do I begin?! Emma is INCREDIBLE! If you do not hire her, you are making a big mistake! Not only are her pictures unreal, she is the sweetest, funniest, and most personable human ever! 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. She is professional, creative, and so much fun to work with! I could go on and on about how amazing she is, but seriously, do yourself a favor and hire her now! Emma is the best of the best!!

Emma, also known as The Bold Americana, was easily the best decision I could have made in regards to my wedding. From the first time I met her, I KNEW she was the perfect choice to capture the best day of my life and I turned out to be 100% RIGHT! She was so easy to work with, always going above and beyond to make me feel at ease, she settles wedding jitters and makes you laugh and really gets to know you...you aren't just one of many with her. You mean something and it shows! Aside from wanting her to be a lifelong friend of mine now (which tells you everything about her personality and the lovely person that she is) I also cannot say enough wonderful things about her work. On a cold December day, she took a bazillion photos and every single one came out GOLD. They are absolutely the most beautiful photos I've ever seen in my life, and I will always cherish them. She worked so hard yet you'd never know if she was ever stressed or tired or cold (although she totally had to be), she was too busy making us laugh and capturing us all perfectly! Everyone that met her at the wedding fell in love with her like I did, and I've received non-stop compliments on my photos. Seriously, if you haven't hired her yet, DO IT NOW. It's the best choice you'll make, I promise.

I can't say enough about Emma! She is simply amazing and her work truly shows just that. My husband and I fell in love with our wedding photos. She is so kind, genuine and down to earth. She captured moments that I would have never even thought of and she captured them beautifully. Her passion for the couples that she works with is infectious and we absolutely adored her. If you hire her as your photographer, you will not he disappointed. This gal knows what she is doing and she is doing a bomb job at it! We love you, Emma! Thank you so very much again for capturing our day and being so great. Hire her! You won't regret it!

Emma was the BEST! I already knew we were going to love the photos after doing our engagement photos but they still completely blew us away. The whole day was just perfect and relaxed and we never felt rushed. She is the most fun photographer ever and will get all the photos you didn't even realize you wanted. Go book her now!!

Take a Black Belt, a Photo Professor, and the creator of Hip-Hop, mash them together, and you get Emma aka The Bold Americana. This super confident, super talented, and super dope photographer makes and takes the best photos this side of the galaxy. Highly recommend. 🤘🏾 I would consider her the Michael Jordan in Space Jam of the Photo World.

I honestly don't even know where to begin. Emma made the day absolutely perfect. Emma has such an adventurous spirit about her which makes the whole room light up and get everyone excited about what they are doing. I wouldn't say I am good at getting my picture taken, or that I really like to, but after looking back on the whole day, my favorite part was gallivanting through KC and having Emma be there to capture it all. I absolutely cannot wait to see all of my photos, because I know that all of them will be the most real, beautiful, funny, emotional parts of a perfect day. With Emma you get a friend, you get an incredible photographer, and you get someone whose main goal is to ensure that your day is filled with joy, laughter, drinks, dancing, and pictures to document it all. Emma- thank you for sharing your talent with us.

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!

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 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.

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! 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...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!! 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!

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!

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. 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.

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. 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! ❤️

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.
