Hi, I’m Emily! I’m a full-time elopement photographer based in Indiana. Serving people through photography is my passion! I’ve been photographing weddings for nearly 10 years + have been married for over 5 years.
My heart yearns for see new places + planning travel. I’ve visited 45 of the 50 states so far, including Alaska + Hawaii. States left to visit: Idaho, North Dakota, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Rhode Island. See current travel schedule here.
More things I love:
Jesus, above all
Hikes in the woods
Big waterfalls + trees
Sweet potato fries
Wine + cider tasting
Camping + campfires
Genuine + kind people
My little boy Everett
Candles on rainy days
Breakfast for dinner
A-frames + hot tubs
I consider myself a boutique-type wedding photographer. I take on a very limited number of weddings per year in order to give you a top-notch experience. I do all the shooting. I do not use associate photographers in place of myself. You’re always going to get me! I do not take more than one wedding in a weekend. You’re investing in a one-of-a-kind premium service when you hire me. I’m already excited!
I truly hope to get to know you on a personal level and serve you with my time and talents. A relationship-focused + genuinely fun photo experience is also something I want for every couple. Feeling comfortable to be yourselves with me is important. Even if you think you’re weird or awkward. I am too! I avoid heavily-posed images and will intermittently guide you. Movement in images is key; none of that “hold still and smile” stuff. Well, maybe a few of those. I will highlight the feeling of it all, and showcase the landscape around you in the best possible way. I’m best suited for fun-loving, energetic, and adventurous individuals who like to be in nature.
I’ll partner with you during the elopement planning process; use me as a resource! I have extensive location/venue lists for wedding spots around the USA and beyond. I pride myself on spending many hours location scouting/researching. Planning logistics and details does not intimidate me. Let me help you find the perfect area to get married outdoors, no matter where or what season!
I hand-edit every image you will receive, and never outsource my editing. I think about longevity + timelessness when working on your images; natural colors, flattering skin tones, logical cropping, removing distractions, etc. When you hire me, you know you’ll be getting my best work with details in mind. And that may mean waiting quite a bit longer than other photographers. Some people want photos very quickly, and that’s okay. Just know that I pour myself into your images and do not take this work lightly, so that I can make the photos the best they can be.
