Creative Documentary Photography
for couples who want to capture who they truly are.

These are your forever moments, so shouldn’t we spend our time together focusing on the stuff that really matters? Letting the day run the photos instead of letting the photos run the day. Having real moments with your family and friends instead of running around doing posed photos that probably won’t mean as much as the years pass by.

I believe that real moments are far more beautiful than posed ones. I believe in capturing the small inbetween moments as well as the loud ones, in telling the full story of your day, and being there while you have the best time of your life partying and loving on all your people who came to celebrate this day with you.

 

Pricing begins at $2700

“Emma is truly a special person--she is kind, conscientious, and incredibly talented. Photography was probably my number one priority when planning my wedding. I'm very picky and wanted photos that captured the emotion and mood of my wedding day. I saw Emma's photos and I absolutely fell in love. Then, she exceeded my expectations on every level. From the beginning, she was interested in learning about who my husband and I are, and not on a surface level. Even through email, she makes you feel comfortable and special. She is an absolute magician with lighting. Also, we had a blast. It was intimate and fun and sweet. She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Last, I can't say enough about my actual wedding photos. They are absolutely gorgeous. Like, unbelievable. She truly captured moments and emotions. My friends and family--and even people on Facebook that I barely know--have raved about my photos. That is an incredible thing.”

Don’t you deserve to have amazing photos while still having the best time on your wedding day?

Hiring a photographer should be simple and easy so that you can get on with enjoying this time of being engaged instead of worrying about vendors getting back to your inquiry. I’ll email you back every detail I can think of, meet for a drink over the phone/Skype to answer all your questions (should you have any), and if you feel like I’m the right fit - you’ve got me on your team.

faq

Is an engagement session included in your packages?  Yes and no. It is in some packages and not in others. I do highly encourage having one though!

Do we get our digital files?  Of course!  You will receive an online gallery to make it easy to order prints and share with family and friends.  With most of the wedding coverage offered you will also receive a custom wood USB with all of your full size images.  All images are edited and high resolution quality.

Do we get printing rights?  Definitely.  Although you won't have access to a professional lab on your own, I do include recommendations for consumer labs that you have access to.

Do you offer prints and albums?  Yes.  I feel so strongly that every couple should have a wedding album.  There's something so wonderful about your children flipping through a tangible book that they can hold on their laps and touch the day their family officially began. I also recommend a large frame of your favorite photo. I can’t tell you how much my favorite wedding photo makes me smile on a daily basis.

What equipment do you use?  I photograph using Canon professional cameras and lenses.

Do you have back up equipment and insurance?  Yes.  And yes.

How do you back up our files after the wedding?  My cameras write the digital files onto two cards all day.  At the end of your wedding day, I immediately transfer all of your images from my cards onto a hard drive.  Afterwards, I copy those images to a duplicate hard drive and upload to cloud storage.

How quickly will we get our photos back?  Turnaround time for your wedding during peak season is 6-8 weeks.  I know that sounds like an eternity, but I send 10-12 sneak peek preview images from your wedding day in the wee hours of the morning while I'm backing up all of your files.  So, the first morning that you wake up married, you'll get the first glimpse at what your day looked like!

Can we see a full wedding gallery?  Of course.  I think it's so important to see a full day from any photographer that you are considering.
I send two full galleries in the very first email responding to you after filling out my form.

Will you shoot LGBTQ, Catholic, Indian, JW, LDS, etc. weddings?  So much yes.  I have not had the pleasure to photograph a ceremony from every faith, but it's certainly a goal.  If you don't see something on my website that looks like the wedding you have in mind, don't let that stop you from reaching out to me.

How can we book you for our wedding or elopement?  First, fill out the contact form which you can find HERE.  We will set up a time to meet or chat over the phone/skype to discuss your expectations and needs for your day.  Also - I just really love to get to know my couples so that I can serve them the best way possible.  To reserve your date, I require a retainer of $1,000 and a signed digital contract.  The remaining balance will be due 30 days before your wedding.  Easy!
