Thank you so much for being here! It means the world to me that you're interested in my work. My background is in photojournalism, so my favorite photos are the moments that happen naturally. You know the ones - a quiet glance, his arm wrapped around your waist and a kiss that makes the entire world stop for just a second. And while I am ALWAYS looking out for the truly documentary moments, I also know that sometimes it takes a little guidance to get there, especially on a wedding day! With me, you'll never have to worry about hearing the words "act natural." Instead, my style infuses both photojournalism and modern posing guidance to give you the best of both worlds. You'll also get to practice during the complimentary engagement session included in every collection.
This gives you a chance to get comfortable in front of my lens, and it also helps me learn more about you as a couple! The result? You'll spend less time worrying about what to do with your hands, and more time enjoying your wedding! Not to mention, you'll get more of those authentic, natural moments that truly tell your story. In order to give you the best experience possible, I only take a limited number of weddings each year. This allows me to give you the attention your wedding day deserves. From helping you create a timeline to planning family formal photos, I am with you every step of the way. At the end of the day, your story is worth documenting. And I would be honored to capture the memories you pass along for generations to come.
We are in awe of the way she captured our anticipation at the start of the ceremony, the nerves before the matron of honor gave her toast, the happy tears that were shed during the first dance, and the sheer joy during the celebration that followed. She did an amazing job of helping to chronicle the day and it has been incredible to relive our wedding day through the photographs she took. Our friends and family have used the word "stunning" more than any other word to describe Emily's photos."

Emily was absolutely amazing and played a huge role in our wedding process. From the minute we met her in person at a local coffee shop, we knew that she was the one - professional (and always early), kind, very thorough, flexible, and with a wealth of knowledge (not only photography, but the whole wedding thing).. She went so much beyond her role as a photographer and we feel truly blessed to have her by our side. Oh, and her photos are absolutely stunning! I am very very picky about pictures, and I love every SINGLE one!"

What is not to love about Emily! From the first time we met her, we had a good feeling about her. She is friendly and attentive. She both explains her photography style while taking diligent notes so you can feel assured that she is also listening to what you want out of your wedding photography. Comments I have received about the photos: "They look like they belong in a magazine". "GQ shot". "You had the best photographer!" We would like to echo what all of our guests have said, and more. You could not do better than getting Emily as your photographer."
Emily shot anniversary pictures for my husband and I and we absolutely LOVED them! She made us feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera. I absolutely LOVE the pictures! She even managed to capture in between moments when we were laughing with one another or just being real. I am so thankful that I will always have the beautiful pictures as a reminder of our second anniversary. We will definitely be having her take more pictures for us in the future!"

Emily was awesome!! She was so professional! She went way above and beyond to make sure she captured every special moment. She was so easy to work with and made everyone feel so comfortable. I recommend Emily for any occasion. She really made my day so much more special!! Thank you Emily!"
She’s incredibly professional, creative and puts you right at ease. Our session in Old Town, Alexandria, was so much fun. She came prepared with tons of different ideas and spots to shoot in. My husband and I were so pleased with the final images. Not only were they beautifully edited but we received them so quickly!"
I had total trust in how the photos would turn out and knew we would get something one-of-a-kind. Having her there put me at ease (on a day that has many of it’s own stressors.) She knew how to direct us and get the unique shots I wanted, so I was able to relax and just enjoy the process. She made it so fun and comfortable and was willing to go the extra mile to get that special moment captured."
Emily put me at ease every step of the way. During our engagement shoot, she made us feel like we were meant to be in photos. As we waited for our big day, Emily was readily available if we had questions or concerns. She is very active on social media. Reading her blogs and seeing the beautiful photographs of other couples reassured me I had made the perfect choice for our wedding photographer. Throughout the day she went about taking pictures of all the moments that were so important to me. She captures the emotions so well! What I love most about Emily is her personal touch. In the end I feel like the person behind the camera understands love and the beauty of capturing the best moments in someone's life. Thank you forever Emily!"
We used her for our engagement photos and they turned out absolutely beautiful. Neither of us are exactly comfortable in front of the camera, but she helped us relax enough to get some fantastic shots. We also received preview shots the SAME DAY as our shoot and the final gallery less than a week later. I'd recommend her in an instant.
The absolute best! Emily was wonderful from the concepting of our shoots to execution. Her turn around time on our photos was so fast and we couldn’t be happier with the results! "
