Emily and Kevin (asst.) were both so kind and professional in photographing my wedding! My dad is an amateur photographer so he knows a thing or two about photography and he couldn't stop raving about them either! Emily even sent me a sneak peek a day after my event and all of them are gorgeous!!! Thank you Emily and Kevin!!!

Emily is absolutely amazing! She communicates well in email and is very professional. I asked her for advice on photoshoot timing based on the types of photos we wanted and what colors to wear and she was very helpful. We were so comfortable working with her during the shoot as well. We were delayed by nyc marathon and she was very understanding and still managed to take photos that we loved. Book her without hesitation!! Thank you Emily for all your hard work—the photos are absolutely beautiful.

I'd never hired a photographer before I planned my wedding, and was delighted to have found Emily. She was accommodating to our crazy schedules, easy to work with, unobtrusive during the ceremony and reception, and reasonably priced.

We had an amazing experience working with Emily! She is very professional and talented. She made us feel very comfortable and did a beautiful job at photographing our wedding! She went above and beyond to catch great moments, has a great eye and her pictures cary a beautiful aesthetic feel without feeling posed. We got the pictures in less then 5 days and they are beautiful, we can't say enough good things about Emily.

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.
