Engagement Photography

We hired Emily for our engagement photo shoot this past weekend and I honestly cannot recommend her enough! Not only is she super polite, kind, and professional, but she is also extremely talented. She has such an eye for detail and is fantastic at helping pose her clients. We did our photo shoot on my cousin’s property and Emily was so good at picking spots and playing with the light and surroundings. My fiancé and I were both completely out of our element, because we had never done a professional shoot before, but Emily made us feel comfortable, confident, and natural from the start and we completely love every picture we received! On top of all that the turnaround time for pictures was quick and she was very communicative from start to finish! 10/10, highly recommend! Attaching some of my favorites to really show how beautiful her work is!

Emily was a delight to work with. The photos of our 13 year old and her best friend turned out beautiful. She offers an artistic vision and a professional competence at a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend her: )

I did an engagement photoshoot with Emily & it was amazing. I got some really wonderful pictures that I hoped for. She was quite considerate of the pandemic situation & was punctual. Great efforts & I would recommend her to capture your memorable moments too. Thanks for your work Emily.

Portrait Photography

Emily was wonderful! Super easy to work with and gave us exactly what we wanted (great quality). I didn't feel like we had any good maternity photos due to covid and wanted to capture a few good photos of us before the baby arrives. Emily was flexible and scoped out a few areas for a quick 45 min shoot. She also turned around photos for us within a few days, which was great! Would definitely want to stay in touch for any future photography needs! Thanks Emily!

    Whenever I work on a shoot I am 100% focused on the needs and wants of the customer. You tell me your vision and I make it happen!

    I've been shooting since 2013 and have a Fine Art degree from the University of California, Santa Cruz.
