MEET EMILY HARY
Hi! I’m Emily. I’m natural light wedding + elopement photographer based out of my home state of Indiana. I am available for travel anywhere! My best friend Jim and I are a husband-wife team. I love partnering with adventurous, playful, and energetic couples who are lovers of the outdoors. Give us all the lighthearted, goofy, can’t-hold-still, and passionate lovers. I’m all about capturing honest moments in a detail-oriented way. Your unique personalities and radiant love should shine through your images for years to come. Getting a bit vulnerable and trusting me will allow us to create some magic, and I cannot wait! Whether you’re getting married in the Midwest or are adventuring further away, I would love to serve you by capturing your love!
I have a master’s degree in social work. Serving people is my passion! I’m a solid mixture of focused/serious + fun-loving/warm. I was a collegiate cross country + track athlete in college. My last collegiate race was a marathon, and I placed 17th in the nation! Perseverance + goal-setting have been ingrained in me, and I am so grateful for that.
In my spare time I love: trying new wines + ciders, buying candles, listening to 70’s + 80’s rock, camping with family, backpacking new sections of the Appalachian Trail, and wandering into Target’s decor section. My all-time favorite movie is Shawshank Redemption. I tear up every time. I am obsessed with sweet potato fries, shrimp tacos, and anything peanut butter + dark chocolate (best combo on Earth!). I’m a nerd for logistics + trip planning. I absolutely love planning travel for myself and others! I also have a love for big trees. Jim and I were married under a giant Catalpa tree (the second largest in Michigan) back in 2015.
Be rooted in Christ – Ephesians 3:17.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE RAVING ABOUT
“Emily and Jim did an amazing job with both our engagement session and wedding. They let our dog come to our engagement session which was a huge plus for us, and they captured the sweetest pictures with us and our pup. While the engagement session was awesome, it doesn’t compare to the work they did on wedding day. OH MY GOSH. Our pictures are perfect! They told the entire story of our day – so much so that our friends and family cried AGAIN when going through them. I really can’t say enough great things about Emily and Jim. I’d use them again and again and again. They’re simply the best.”
