Hi there!

My name is Emma, and I am an elopement photographer based here in the absolute perfection that is Washington state. I love this job more than anything, and thank my lucky stars every day that I get to do something that involves impeccable people, sacred moments, and a little adventure.

I grew up in Western Washington, and have always been awe-stricken by the landscapes at our fingertips. From the jagged mountains and alpine lakes of the North Cascades, to the vast beaches along the Olympic Peninsula, to the wildflowers beneath Mount Rainier, I can’t emphasize more how much joy it brings me to photograph my couple’s big day out here.

My approach to photography is simple; ensure you two are feeling comfortable and at ease, and to be a photojournalist of your story and your day. If that means we need to crack open some beers or do a little breathwork, I’m here for it. Getting photos taken should be a fun experience, that simultaneously makes you feel ~all the feels~ all over again. Not to mention, I’m an expert at this whole thing. Logistics, planning & details to make sure you feel prepared and empowered for your elopement is a huge part of what I offer ✨

I can’t wait to meet you, grab a drink perhaps, and become your guide to your unique elopement adventure! You can head straight to my website to find out more about pricing, how I operate, and all the ideas for your elopement! >>> emmastudley.com

As a final note, it is very important to me that my clients align with me on an ethical level. My business firmly believes that Black lives matter, love is love, sexism sucks, and that discrimination or hatred of any kind is a big no no. If we don’t vibe on that level, I ask you inquire with someone else.

Thank you for the honor of reading all this, chat soon!


**If you are interested in eloping elsewhere, I love traveling and am always stoked to photograph couples in new places!! Check out my Travel Dates here.

From Patagonia to Utah to Italy, the limit does not exist on where I’m willing to go for my adventurous couples ✈️

Emma made all of our elopement dreams come true!!!! My husband and I both agree that our elopement was the best day of our lives for several reasons, and Emma was certainly one of them. From the moment we met Emma, it was clear that she was not only going to help us create a memorable day, but she was going to make sure she captured our authentic and private exchange with the utmost care, respect, and celebration. We had SO MUCH FUN and her photos are truly stunning! Emma is a good soul who knows how to capture the gorgeous forests of the PNW as well as the important humans in frame. Our photos are not only a perfect reminder of the best day, but are simultaneously beautiful portraits of the lush Olympic forest, rivers, and mountains that we love so much and call home. We can't thank Emma enough for giving us everything we authentically wanted in an elopement - we really could not have asked for anything more!!

We absolutely loved working with Emma for our last minute Summer elopement! With just 3 or 4 months notice, she answered our inquiry within a day, scheduled a phone consultation promptly, and created a customized proposal for the photography services for our adventure elopement. Emma helped us choose our elopement hike where we wanted to have our ceremony by scouting out locations and providing feedback from a photographer's point of view. Emma was extremely responsive, easy to work with, and a joy to have with us at our ceremony. We met Emma for the very first time on the day of our ceremony. Despite it being pitch black outside, well before sunrise in the middle of nowhere, she was so bubbly, energetic, friendly, and very excited to be there with us! It really felt like we had known her forever and that she was just one of our closest friends accompanying us on our hike. She really set the tone for the whole experience to be positive and exciting. Not only is Emma an amazing photographer, but we feel like she captured the moments and memories as they happened candidly instead of creating artificial moments. Emma didn't dictate the pace of the ceremony, she worked with it allowing us to have our perfect day. On top of that, she sent us a sneak peek of the photos the very next day and it was so exciting to be able to see them and share them with our friends and family, as if they were there celebrating with us.

If you're on the fence and looking for a photographer ... and trying to decide between Emma and one of the many other talented photographers in the area - PICK EMMA.

She made us feel SO comfortable, especially as she captured the most intimate of moments. Like the special moment when my mom dressed my now wife in our traditional Korean clothing.. and when I burst into tears seeing my wife during the first look.

She's also just a wonderful, kind human to work with. She makes you feel so comfortable.... this may seem odd, but like a long-lost friend who you have never met before.

I would highly recommend Emma if you are looking for a wonderful photographer for an intimate wedding/elopement. She was incredibly helpful and communicative the entire planning process and the photos turned out beautifully! She gave us a sneak peek of some finished photos almost immediately after the wedding and delivered the rest a few weeks later! She also brought us a small gift the day of our wedding, which was so surprising and thoughtful! She fit right in with our family and felt like an old friend! Can't recommend her enough, thanks Emma!

So, how long have you known Emma?" Several people asked us this during our wedding weekend thinking Emma was just another friend — one of the crew. And that's exactly what she feels like. Emma is so natural and easy to be around that she put us at ease too which is exactly how I wanted to feel on our wedding day. No contrived poses, no stressful timelines. Just us, experiencing our day, trusting that she was working her magic behind the scenes capturing it all. It was a fantastic feeling.
