Portrait Photography

Where do I start? Emerson was a dream to work with. We had a big, huge, rowdy bunch (including 12 kids) and Emerson rolled with it and captured our group's personality perfectly. He was patient, kind, funny, punctual, creative and went above and beyond to make sure our family had all the photos we needed to remember this precious time together. He came with ideas, was open to ours, wasn't bothered by screaming, crying or running kids. Y'all, honestly, he was the exact energy we needed for this family photo shoot. He was professional and communicative, flexible and kind. And he was finished editing our photos so quickly! Two enthusiastic thumbs up for Emerson.

Portrait Photography

Overall AMAZING experience to say the least. Always willing to work with your schedule and last minute changes. Pictures are breathtaking and the photographer knows how to make the session so much fun! I was reluctant about the shoot due to personal reasons but I’m so glad I went for it anyways! 110% recommend this artist for all of your photo needs.

Emerson from the very beginning was very professional and extremely helpful. The amount of effort put into his work is amazing and great to be a part of. 10/10 would recommend booking with Emerson.

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

    The VISION we have set for ourselves is to achieve the highest standards of quality and service at a fair price. Always up-to-date in terms of using the latest technology, we keep ourselves abreast of the latest equipment, techniques, and news so as to stay current in our industry. Military discount available at a standard 15% on any product/package.

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

    Typically when working with a new client, I like to confirm the product and services requested. The security deposit will be retained to lock in the date of service. Prior to any wedding if time allows I offer to meet the client prior to the event. We become a bit familiar with each other and ensure there are no misconceptions of work to be conducted or expectations that have not been discussed, avoiding misinterpretation, etc.

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

    My education is primarily based on many years of work as a prior wedding, fashion, and beauty photographer out of Seattle, WA. I've been capturing model portfolios, beauty portfolios, and glamour which built up the experience and quality you see, may experience, and can expect today. I am also a photography and photoshop educator. Education consists of one year with Academy of Art University and currently finishing my bachelors of Photography at Thomas Edison State University
