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!

Wedding and Event Photography

My soon-to-be graduating High School Senior had his photos taken at the St. Louis Zoo today. Emily greeted us with a handshake and a smile, immediately we knew that booking with her would make for an amazing experience. Our son had such a great time with the photo shoot. It was a little warm today but Emily didn't let that detour her from taking photos. She was absolutely amazing and so friendly. Thank you so much for such an amazing day!

I could have used more pose and lighting guidance but I did get photos I wanted in a timely manner. Very nice person

Emily was very friendly and very professional! She's such a sweet girl and the pictures turned out beautiful! I would definitely call her again for my next shoot and look forward to working with her in the future!

Very flexible & agreeable but not great quality on a few of the photos. A little expensive for the level of experience.

  • 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.
