Emily’s photography is excellent. But beyond that, her cordiality and warmth made the experience phenomenal. Going forward, I will be sure to rely on Emily in the event that I need to have high quality photographs.

It was so nice to work with Emily! She’s super patient and willing to explore. Emily also provides free revision shooting, which was such a pleasant surprise! Whether you are a first timer or a professional, I highly recommend her :)

Portrait Photography (Package Options)

We love Emily. I hired her for a family portrait photo session and she worked well with my toddler and newborn baby. She is very professional and pleasant person, she listened and gave suggestions of how we can have our photos taken. My husband and I were both happy with the photos she delivered after 2 days. We will definitely hire her again for more photo sessions in the future.

Wedding and Event Photography

Emily was fantastic! We wanted unstaged shots to document our event and she did a great job! She was able to recognize when special moments were happening and artfully captured them as they unfolded. The photos had a wonderfully organic quality to them and her candid portraits of the guests were truly beautiful. She was professional and very sweet to boot. We highly recommend her!

Wedding and Event Photography

Working with Emily was fantastic. She responded quickly to our email enquiry and had the brief sorted in no-time. She was bang on time arriving at our hotel and then suggested walking with us to our wedding venue, taking pictures along the way. She took a fabulous mix of posed and candid shots which make fabulous photojournalism in their own right, let alone amazing wedding memories. We grabbed a taxi and Emily captured the everyday scenes plus some amazing shots in the cab. She was a thorough professional, but by the end of the session, we had made a new friend. It was fun and easy working with Emily who put us at ease and is a lovely, sensitive person to boot! The quality of her work is exceptional. We had pictures on the same day with more following shortly after. Everyone we have shown our pictures to has asked how we got them. They have commented on how relaxed and natural everything appears. Emily gave us everything we wanted from our wedding photos and so much more. Absolutely fabulous!

FAQs

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

    All my photography packages whether corporate, editorial or family, start at $350 which include up to 1.5 hours of shooting time, and 150+ fully edited images returned within 3 days. Depending on the day and the client's flexibility, I may be able to work within a smaller price range. Add ons can include, additional hours, specific editing requests or second photographers if you are having a large event.

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

    My typical process for taking on a new client is as follows: - Have a ~10 minute phone consultation to discuss what you are looking for - I follow up by email with a proposal for the location, cost and timeline of the photoshoot as well as any other questions I may need you to answer -If you accept the proposal, I send you a contract and request a 50% deposit. The signed contract and deposit are due within 5 days. -A week prior to our shoot, I confirm all of our details. -You receive your fully edited images typically within 3 days of the shoot unless otherwise discussed. At this point the remainder of payment is due, and you have access to download the images.

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

    I received my Bachelors of Science in photography from Drexel University in 2012. I have had the opportunity to study under some of the best photojournalists and have learned not only the technical skills it takes to be a photographer, but also the creative drive it takes to create one of a kind images.
