Introduction: I am an artist and photographer who is passionate about creating spectacular and unique images. I received my BA from UC Santa Cruz with a focus in Art and Business in 2016. While studying abroad in Lyon, I fell in love with the art of photography and have been devoted to this dynamic form of storytelling ever since. Practicing photography since 2013, I have explored nine countries and laid roots in Northern California, shooting weddings, events and portraits locally and worldwide. In my work I aim to capture and investigate humankind’s adventurous spirit. Send me a message, I would love to discuss your needs and see how we can work together!

Emily was a delight to work with. I hired her for my traditional baby shower and she did a wonderful job keeping up with the ebs and flows of the ceremony and followings events. I also appreciated that she was able to videograph the ceremony component.

Working with Emily was awesome! It felt so natural and I was at ease taking photos. She knew what she was doing and captured spectacular candid pictures throughout the night as well! She took fantastic pictures despite terrible weather and lighting conditions. 10/10 would recommend hiring her for your wedding! Thank you Emily!!

This is a long overdue review, but Emily helped me last minute capture my engagement to my partner and our photos came out beautiful!! It was a brief session and the value was unbelievable! She was punctual, despite us being late and unfortunately missing sunset, but she was still able to capture beautiful pictures at dusk. Throughout coordination she was very responsive and super sweet. We got our pictures rather quickly in comparison to other photographers I’ve worked with. I would highly recommend Emily and we would use her again!

FAQs

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

    My quote includes edited digital copies, typically 35 - 50 per hour depending on type of shoot, delivered within one week of shooting time. This fee includes the cost of equipment, traveling fees, shooting, editing and transferring.

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

    After discussing the details of the event or session, I do request a 30% deposit in order to secure the time on my calendar. Once received, we are confirmed for the session. Final payment is due at the end of shooting time. I deliver edited digital copies within one week of shooting via email using Dropbox or Zenfolio. You will be able to download the images and I can also send you the unedited ones as well upon request. I also offer videography, framed photography and other printing services at additional cost.

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

    I have a Fine Art degree from the University of California, Santa Cruz with a background in figure painting and music photography. I have been photographing events and portraits professionally since 2013.
