IMAGES THAT capture how you felt





My goal is to make you feel comfortable & confident in front of the camera. Those emotions will shine through In your images.

"Our day just went by so smoothly and we did not feel rushed at all!"

If you are looking for a stress free wedding photography experience, you have come to the right place. Let's take some dreamy photos, and have fun while we're at it!


from the L&L Family:

“Emily’s work is pure magic! She guides you through the process, makes you feel so comfortable, and makes the entire session feel like you’re hanging out with one of your closest friends.”

“Emily has been our photographer for the past four years.  Her professional ability to capture light in every photo is absolutely incredible.

Beth & brandon

 From maternity sessions to milestone sessions for both of our daughters, Emily has been there for it all! We’re seven sessions in and the photos just keep getting better!

I'm Emily

Being comfortable and confident in front of the camera will make or break your photo session. At your session, it’s just me. I am not going to make you feel silly, and me feeling familiar to you is how that is accomplished. My goal is to prepare you for your session, direct you in every way at your session, hype you up, and then deliver images that show of how beautiful you are! DONE. That easy. And that is what I love most about it. Photo sessions shouldn’t be overwhelming or stressful, they should be relaxed and fun. That is my specialty.
