PHOTOS THAT CAPTURE WHO YOU ARE AND YOUR MOST-LOVED MEMORIES

THOUGHTFUL WEDDING + FAMILY PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY BASED OUT OF SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA 

IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT TAKING PRETTY PHOTOS

I’LL BRING YOU BACK TO EACH MOMENT 

Photos that feel true-to-you

It’s important that your photos represent you, your partner, and/or your family. On your wedding or photoshoot day, it’s my goal to capture your experience exactly as it happened. While I am very good at posing you for natural feeling and looking photos, I’ll also encourage you to focus on being present in the moment so I can preserve your true emotions and natural chemistry. Sounds good to you? Then we might be the perfect fit.

By far the most beautiful photos ever taken

Emily is a GOD SEND! By far the most beautiful photos ever taken and I've always hated photos of myself! Even my fiancé loved the photos and he hates taking pictures as well. We are both very camera shy and extremely uncomfortable in front of the lens and for her to be so friendly, it really allowed us to enjoy each other and have fun taking photos. I knew that even with a smaller, low scale wedding, we wanted to splurge on quality photos and I am SO grateful and happy that we did!!

Her navigational expertise around the city/City Hall and time management skills were deeply appreciated and welcomed amidst the chaos on our wedding day- it truly made the event run smoothly from start to finish.

I can genuinely say that these are the best photos I have ever seen of myself!
We'll be booking with her for all our important photo sessions from now on!

LIFE AS AN ATTORNEY DIDN’T FILL MY CUP 

I’LL BRING YOU BACK TO EACH MOMENT 

Luxury meets smiles through the whole process

Hi, I’m Emily - an attorney-turned-photographer who’s passionate about preserving snapshots from people’s lives. I strayed from my previously-chosen career path after realizing that I wasn’t feeling fulfilled. Long story short, my sweet husband signed me up for a photography class and it was one of my favorite days. I loved everything about the art of taking photos. After a few months of practice I knew that I had found my second career. I’m dedicated to capturing every little detail from your most-loved memories, and I’m so honored to be a part of your journey.

We just felt like it was the best day of our lives and she definitely was able to capture that

Emily is so amazing!!!! She made our wedding day so so special. My husband and I are not the type of couple who are good at PDA, but Emily and Tony made us feel so comfortable. We never felt uncomfortable, never felt staged, we just felt like it was the best day of our lives and she definitely was able to capture that. Anyone who needs a photographer in Northern California should book her! She is hard working, helpful and super communicative.
