Emily is AMAZING! I would recommend her to every and anyone! She was so helpful with all the planning and perfectly created what I envisioned for bouquet colors and location. We went up to Breck for an intimate elopement, and Emily set it all up perfectly. I had never been to... Read More the area where we had our ceremony, but it was just gorgeous, lots of foliage (9/29/17 wedding!) which is exactly what I wanted. The pictures she took were so gorgeous. She had some surprise shots with our 5 year old and 4 month old which were so authentic and beautiful. Love her, and we will be using her anytime we are up in the mountains for family portraits, anniversary pictures, etc!

Emily is the absolute best! We had such a blast taking engagement photos with her! Her location choice was excellent, her attitude even better, but most importantly, she has a great eye for the "perfect shot." We had some scheduling conflicts on our end but she was very flexible...

My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better photographer! Emily with Keeping Composure Photography was OUTSTANDING! Living in Illinois and having a destination wedding in Colorado was tough to plan, but Emily made this completely stress free and she was very organized!... Read More Her excellent talent for photography is easily shown while she is navigating you through your session with different poses and locations for lighting. Emily's communication with you during and before your session allows your photo session to be fun and easy! There is no better choice for a photographer for any occasion than Keeping Composure Photography! I will definitely be contacting her again in the future for another session while visiting Colorado!

We booked Emily as part of a package for our elopement photos, and while we were hopeful about the images, "pleasantly surprised" doesn't even begin to describe our feelings-- We were THRILLED once we saw the photos! Emily hiked through several feet of snow with us on a blustery... Read More single-digit day, and somehow she made our chattering teeth look like beautifully happy smiles. While I felt like I rushed through the photos because it was so cold, she caught some really amazing shots that I would never have imagined... She is a genius! (FYI - I am the bride, posting this apparently from my husband's Knot account).

Emily is an amazing photographer, and we are so glad that we chose Keeping Composure as our wedding photography vendor. Emily worked with us in the months prior to the wedding to select the package that was the best option for us and so that everything was prepared for the day.... Read More We were impressed that Keeping Composure offered both printed albums as well as all digital files and printing rights. To us, that showed Emily listened to her clients and their needs and is also tuned into the wedding industry to what couples want (whether they know it and express it, or not) when it comes to photography. As a result, we did not have to worry about anything photography-related on the day of our wedding and we knew that Emily would take care of everything and get the shots we had discussed. We are not the most comfortable people in front of the camera, but Emily made us feel completely at ease. Upon receiving our Keeping Composure photos, we were completely blown away. They were truly gorgeous and Emily captured all of the happiness that we felt on that day. There were so many photos that we didn't even know she taken but were so pleased to have. Going through the photos puts smiles on our faces every time. Keeping Composure also offers many print options, from albums to prints to keepsakes. We can't wait to share prints with our family for the holidays. Thank you, Emily!

Captures the Magic

Priceless. We were lucky enough to have Emily take our engagement photos. She is the queen of capturing soft, natural lighting, lovely compositions, and spontaneous, fun moments. 5 Years later, they are still some of our favorite and most featured photos in our home.... Read More Working with Emily is a joy. You should not wish to find a more beautiful spirit with which to go out on a photographic adventure. You will feel at ease and her pictures will naturally capture the celebration you have in your hearts. One of her greatest strengths is capturing those little, often missed moments, such as a child curiously playing with a flower, that special look from grandma, or the way you wring your hands out of anxious excitement. She is looking for the passion and magic of the moment, which is why Emily is such a talented photographer. Anyone can take a photo. It takes an exceptional eye to capture the intangible essence of what makes your relationship unique. Emily has a passion for finding that uniqueness and preserving it for you to remember always.

Beautiful Work!

My husband and I first worked with Emily when we needed engagement photos done...before she made the transition to professional photographer. We were beyond impressed with the quality of photos that she was able to produce. She made us feel comfortable, and she had an eye for...

We loved having Emily as our photographer at our wedding! I saw her portfolio pictures and knew that she would be perfect for our rustic/country/casual wedding.

She was so laid back but professional at the same time and we had a blast taking our wedding pictures! We spoke many times before the big day about what pictures I wanted and she even went so far as to ask for my family members names so she could call them by name the day of the wedding! Honestly though, she made me feel so comfortable with her experience and knowledge that I didn't really make much of a list of desired pictures. I knew that she was capable and I had full trust in her abilities to produce beautiful pictures..and boy was I right! We loved all of our photos! She did such an amazing job of capturing our special moments that we can relive every time we look at our pictures. I would suggest her to anybody looking for a down to earth photographer that takes stunning photos. She was a pleasure to work with and we were honored to have her be apart of the most important day in our lives. Thanks Emily!
