“…Emmy was such a calming and joyful presence during our wedding. Before the ceremony when the rain started to come down and emotions started to intensify, she was able to pull us all together, come-up with a creative alternative to group photos and capture some really special moments. I am very grateful for her amazing ability to be patient and confident in these trying moments…”  - Alea | Colorado

" Emmy… captures love so naturally instead of posed pictures. She has an easy personality to have around on the most important day of our lives. The second shooter on our wedding day was a pleasure to work with as well…” - Courtney | Colorado

Photographer Expertise



I have almost a decade of experience in the wedding industry and as a photographer. I’ve worked through almost every wedding day nightmare you can imagine.


I have also endured a number of difficulties in my personal life, so I am able to be kind, generous and empathic towards tough things that occur leading up to or on our photo shoot day or wedding. 



I am able to capture bright, epic sunsets, low-lighting situations and a number of other unconventional lighting scenarios that require careful expertise behind the camera.

I’ve taken classes with some of the top wedding photographers. I’ve learned some amazing tricks of the trade from them all as well as many valuable lessons.



I am passionate about marriages that are full of love and commitment.

You can be real with me. I'll help you not feel nervous; its my job to help you be you in front of the camera and capture who you are.


"Emmy is simply amazing. She captured the most beautiful moments of my wedding and I will forever treasure the photos. I cannot thank Emmy enough for her time, dedication, efficiency, creativity, and kindness. There is not another photographer like Emmy out there! She is truly one of a kind." -Kara | Texas

“We had such a sweet and special time. [Emmy] have such an easy presence, such a relaxing air, and such an engaging relationship with [her]  camera and [her] subjects. The prompts [she] gave sent us frolicking down memory lane and landed us solidly in “Us-ville” (haha). It was a gift to think and talk about our moments of celebration, cherishing, support, and deep love. It was a gift to laugh and flirt and joke and snuggle. It was a gift to walk hand in hand and search for the sun and wrap up in arms and blanket and memory and love. I appreciate so much the way [she] interacted with us, the way [she] made us WANT to follow [her]  prompts, the way [she]  encouraged and suggested and helped. I am oh so glad [she]  are reopening your business. I know so many people are going to be blessed by [she] , who are going to walk away smiling and savoring, who are going to beam when [she]  send them sneak peeks. …[She]  didn’t just take a picture; [she]  created an experience for us that we will remember with great fondness whenever we look at the photos.”
