Your Photographer + New Best Friend

You deserve a someone who goes above and beyond to not only deliver beautiful photos, but an unforgetful experience. Someone who will gush along with your squad when you step out in your dress for the first time. Someone who knows just what to say when you're feeling the nerves start to spread. Someone who will ugly cry through your vows. Someone who will refill your glass of champagne when it gets low. Someone who's just as ready to climb a tree to get the best angle (true story) as she is to throw a few shots back with you once the party starts. And someone who will have your back from the moment you inquire until your 75th anniversary. You deserve a best friend.

When I met Emely – over two years ago now – I had no idea we would be embarking on what would become a lifelong journey together. I reached out to Emely on a whim to photograph our proposal. Shortly thereafter, as we were so thrilled with the engagement photos (they were... Read More published in The Knot, after all), we brought her on to shoot our wedding. Emely has the whole package. Incredible customer service (she was always so quick to respond and incredibly flexible, even with last-minute changes), a great “bedside manner” (her approach makes you feel so comfortable and at ease. In fact, during the wedding, we didn’t even know she was there… she truly blended right in) and a great eye for photography (her photos speak for themselves). Emely was incredibly professional throughout the entire process and she surrounds herself with the like. Her second for the wedding was absolutely wonderful—and the product was something beyond our wildest dreams. We can’t put into words how special it is to look back and relive every moment from our wedding day. I jokingly told her that she would be shooting our family portraits once we have kiddos. I wasn’t really kidding… Watch out world, Emely has arrived!
