Emily Howell Photography
About this pro
I have never hired a photographer before and really had no idea what to look for or to expect. Emily was just perfect. Easy to work with from start to finish. She was calm, laid back, friendly, had great ideas for photo ops and took absolutely stunning shots. I couldn't be happier with our wedding photos. I would hire you again in a heartbeat! Thank you.Oct 6, 2016Verified

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Bachelor of Arts in Photography from Columbia College Chicago. Eight years of experience photographing for clients.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?In high school, I took a photography class as an elective. At the time, I was also active in the theater program, so I offered to take head shots for the musical at the time. I quickly realized I was much better behind the lens than on stage. I started doing head shots, family photos and dance portraits for people in the area. The rest is history! I went to school and studied photography and have expanded into shooting weddings, engagements, newborns, travel photography, etc.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Make sure you click with your photographer. I like to tell my clients that weddings are fun, so I'm fun at weddings! Your photographer is a huge part of your day, so make sure they're someone you feel comfortable around, can laugh with and will help to make sure everything runs smoothly. I think this is true across the board whether you're looking for a wedding photography, newborn or anything in between -- you should trust who your working with to take care of you and your loved ones and to capture the images you want.
