 I just wanna stay here in this moment…

(for all the rest of time.)


Come on, you know you sang it.

Life is a series of moments lived and re-lived through the telling of stories. Photos preserve our memories—our seasons and our celebrations—to make sure that when we tell those stories not a single detail goes missing.

Whether it’s the look on you bridesmaids faces when they see you zipped into your dress the first time, or your newborn baby’s tiny fingers and toes. Maybe it’s the way time seems to stand still as you anticipate the arrival of new life, or the way it doesn’t seem to stop once those babies start growing.

Photography gives you the chance to live in the moments forever.

Before we get started, I’d love to give you a run-down of what to expect with me as your photographer!


  • Natural and fun poses that don’t feel awkward

  • Encouraging and sometimes-hilarious commentary from behind the lens

  • Easy-to-enjoy timelines that keep you present at your celebration

  • A mix of outdoor and indoor, light-filled settings with editing to match

  • A mix of naturally-posed and candid shots

  • Personal use and printing rights

  • Digital delivery with online gallery of fully-edited images

Please note: I only takes on 5-6 weddings annually and a very limited number of portrait sessions. Now booking for 2019 & 2020.

A $1,500 retainer and signed contract is required to reserve your wedding date.


I think marriage is beautiful.


I’ve been married since 2013 and my marriage is the greatest relationship that I’ll have in my entire life.

I’m a huge fan of country music, road trips, adventures outside, traveling, bubbly water, caramel lattes, the West Coast, exercising, agriculture, apple products, experiencing new cultures, dance parties with my family in the kitchen, website design, and photography — just to name a few.

As a wife, I firmly believe in marriage and I do my best to capture all that it means through my photography on your wedding day. A marriage is SO much more than just one day, but your wedding day is an incredible time for you, your friends, and your family to celebrate the beginning of a new legacy.


 what I’m all about

simply put: trust.


Ultimately, I want you to love your photos.

I don’t expect everyone to connect with my work. I don’t approach the same way as other photographers out there. What it really comes down to for me is TRUST. To do my best work and for you to get the best photographs possible, you’re going to need to be on board with how your photographer does things and the photographic style that they produce.

If you aren’t in love with the photographs you’re seeing from me, no problem.

Just make sure you find a photographer whose work speaks to you and that you feel you can fully trust to deliver the kind of images you’re dreaming of. I really want you to love your wedding photos, regardless if I’m the one to take them or not.

If you’ve followed my work on social media, you will see a lot of details and up close portraits. That being said though, those photographs are only a small percentage of what you should expect to see in your wedding photographs, so please make sure you look through full wedding posts on my blog to get a good feel as to what to expect in your wedding day coverage.

If you would like to see full wedding galleries, please contact me and I’ll be happy to send you a few of my most recent weddings! I know that photography is one of the most important things to consider when planning your wedding and I love that responsibility.

Could not have asked for a better wedding photographer! Most importantly, our photos turned out BEAUTIFULLY (better than we could have imagined) and every moment of our unconventional wedding was perfectly captured. We literally have a story to tell through Emma’s photos. Emma was professional, kind, punctual, and easy to communicate with. We look forward to working with her in the future and would recommend her to anyone looking for a quality photographer.
