Introduction: Hi there! My name is Emily. You can view my portfolio and contact me at emilymaedean.myportfolio.com :) I'm a freelance photographer based out of Phoenix, Arizona. I'm most passionate about capturing creative portraits in nature and building artistic sets for my shoots. I love working with couples to capture intimate and nostalgic-feeling engagement photos, small weddings and elopements. One of my favorite things about photography is getting to know my clients and figuring out what they want to portray through their photos. I love working with other artists to help them promote their art through my photography, and helping small brands achieve marketing photos that align with their vibe and values. I pride myself in making people feel comfortable and confident in front of me and my camera because I believe that each person holds an indescribable amount of beauty and light that deserves to be captured, preserved and remembered. Think of me for individual portrait shoots, boudoir, engagement photos, small weddings & elopements, brand shoots, family photos, or any scenario when you're looking for artistic, unique and free-spirited photos. My style is not traditional. I'm a photographer for the wild at heart! NOTE: I do not offer newborn or cake smash sessions

We couldn't love our photos more! She did an amazing job capturing the sweetest family photos, even though we had a very cranky 2-year-old and an uncooperative 6 month old. Everyone looks great and I love the special moments she captured. She also returned the photos promptly and within the promised timeframe. I can't wait to share these photos with our friends and family. 100% recommend!

Details: Family or children's portrait • Traditional / classic (looking directly at the camera) • Candid (captured in the moment) • Natural / environmental (photographed in an outdoor setting) • Outdoors • Digital or online download • My home, venue, etc.

Emily did an amazing job with my graduation photos. The quality of the images were outstanding. She was able to squeeze me in last minute, was on time, and quick to respond. She also provided quick options when the location we initially had for the photoshoot was closed day of. Definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer.

Details: Graduation portrait • Natural / environmental (photographed in an outdoor setting) • Artistic (focus on composition, lighting) • Candid (captured in the moment) • Traditional / classic (looking directly at the camera) • Outdoors • Digital or online download • At the pro’s location

Emily was amazing for our surprise engagement photo shoot and we couldn’t be happier with the pictures she took! Emily was always very responsive and did whatever she could to make the process as smooth and easy as possible. We are already planning to use Emily again in the future for more pictures! Couldn’t recommend enough!

I had a need for professional headshots for a variety of situations. Emily was able to schedule an appointment right away. What she did photographically was exactly what I needed.

Hey Marilyn! I’m so glad you liked your head shots. It was great working with you! :)

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My rates vary depending on the number of people being photographed, the length of the shoot, the location of the shoot, the props for the shoot, the number of outfits being photographed, etc. Before I quote you a price, I will need to ask you some questions so I have a clear outline of what is expected from me.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When a new customer reaches out, the first thing I'll do is ask a set of questions to better determine their needs. From there, I will quote the customer a price based on those needs. If the customer agrees to the price, we will find a date for the shoot that works best for the both of us. At this point, the customer will be expected to pay a nonrefundable deposit that will be deducted from the price of their shoot in order to hold their spot.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a degree from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism where I trained in photo-journalism and received extensive photography training.
