       we all

let's connect

Emily is absolutely wonderful to work with and her pictures are stunning! She really took the time to get to know us and our story and that can be thoroughly seen in her beautiful pictures. She was able to capture our most genuine and candid moments and we both truly enjoyed the experience. We had so much fun during our shoot and I truly believe it's due to Emily's personality and her ability to make you feel relaxed. We also received our engagement picture gallery quickly, which was an extra plus! I cannot say enough good things about her work and would highly recommend her to any of my friends and family!

Emily was such a pleasure to work with! I’d followed her for a LONG time before actually scheduling a session - just because I love her work! I participated in her fall mini sessions this year, which ran like clockwork. You can tell from working with her that she has
ample experience getting clients comfortable in front of the lens and capturing organic moments. And the turnaround was so fast for the minis! We maybe waited 4 days? Which is unprecedented in my experience and greatly appreciated. After our shoot, she hung
out with my husband and I under a picnic awning waiting out rain after our session and kept us entertained with conversation and snacks. It was well worth the drive from Cincinnati to Hocking Hills to work with Emily. We will be sure to return for future bookings!

 I really can’t thank Emily enough for all the little moments she has captured for my husband and I! I came across Emily’s Instagram page when I began my search for a Columbus wedding photographer. I searched hashtags and kept clicking on photos I loved, all of which were Emily’s! I reached out right away and from our first FaceTime call, I knew she’d be the one to capture our Big Day. We had the opportunity to meet Emily during our engagement shoot in which she spent the day with us, truly getting to know us as a couple, getting us comfortable in front of the camera and ensuring she knew how to get the great shot and genuine expressions from us for our wedding day. Needless to say, we got those engagement photos back and were blown away. Fast forward to our October 5th wedding and she absolutely exceeded our expectations of what our wedding photos would look like. It gave us such a peace of mind during that day knowing she was going to be capturing our biggest moments and that we could just truly enjoy the moment and soak it all in. We receive endless compliments on our photos and I think that says it all about Emily. She is such a genuine person and it shows through her work. If you are looking for a laid back, hard working, easy going, and someone you can trust to capture all the little details, Emily is your girl! We are now expecting our first child and we are working on getting a date on the calendar for our newborn family session with Emily. Thank you, Emily, for continuing to capture some of our favorite moments in life!

Hi I'm Emily

get to know me

A wedding photographer based in Columbus, OH. My journey with photography started with my grandpas photo albums. He was a photographer and I remember spending hours sitting on his lap, flipping through the old pages and falling in love with the art. That's a huge reason why I'm so intentional about shooting with a timeless, cinematic, and authentic style. That's also why I love film and include it in all my packages. There's nothing that matches it.

 I'm not really one for trends. I want your photographs to capture who you truly are. Whether that's spending your wedding morning together taking a walk in your favorite park, getting matching tattoos while everyone is dancing, or ditching the classic wedding dress and wearing something other than white. Or maybe you don't want anything traditional because it's just not you, i'm here to capture it all. 

 I get the most inspiration from shooting in new places, so don't hesitate to reach out wherever you are in the world.
