Introduction: My name is Emily and I am a St. Louis based photographer for Families, Weddings, and Seniors. If you're newly engaged, about to get married, a graduating senior, or a family that wants to stop time and remember a milestone, let me capture that special time in your life. I live in the St. Louis area so having sessions at Forest Park, like the Muny and the Art Museum, are my bread and butter. My love of photography started in high school, and grew into a business after I married my best friend. Coffee, chocolate, and my two dogs are some of the things I love. I also love sharing my passion with others and getting to be a part of someone's milestone in life, even if only for a little bit. Your experience with me will be fun, relaxing and easy. I am available for any custom session tailored to perfection especially for you. I'd love to chat with you!

Emily saved the day at the last minute as our hired photographer backed out two weeks before our event. And she went above and beyond to accommodate our photo needs. Everything worked out great!

I cannot recommend Emily more- she did a fantastic job during our entire time working together. She was helpful with the planning, punctual and communicated well on the day of the shoot, and most importantly took great pictures that turned out great. Anyone interested should definitely consider her for their photo shoot!

Emily covered the entire event of my daughter's 1st birthday celebration at a Park Pavilion and she did an exceptional job. All photos came out really well though there was no lighting inside the pavilion. Although the event didn't went as I planned due to the heavy wind, it was still ok but after looking at the photos, I feel very happy! Emily is talented, creative, punctual and dedicated! I would love to work with her again and appreciate her patience. Thanks a ton Emily :)

Details: Birthday party • Fewer than 25 guests • Outdoors • Digital or online download

FAQs

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

    Let me know what I can do for you, and we will work together toward a great session.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    In high school I took a photography class that used film instead of digital and fell in love with the darkroom and the whole process of getting film to develop. I got my first film camera from my dad and from then on my love for photography grew.
