I'm married to my best friend and favorite person in the entire world. As partners in life and in business, my husband and I work together to provide a relaxed and natural experience on your big day. We've been married for six years now, and I still pinch myself when thinking about how lucky I am to have such a supportive partner and that we get to work together to tell other couples stories.

We're constantly learning from each other and dreaming, which makes what we do so much more fun.

Meet Dan, My partner in life & business

I'm a sentimental soul, and I have always had a deep love for genuine connection between humans. I believe that at the end of the day, these true moments—even the smallest ones make up our life experiences. That's why photography has been such a beautiful gift in my life, not only for my clients but the same joy that I get capturing others' life I get in being able to do my own. I truly believe it is one of the most magical things we can do, capturing honest memories for people to hold onto for years to come of the people and experiences in life that mean the most. 

When I am not shooting for work, you can still find me looking for inspiration in new places we travel, historical sites, coffee shops, and even walks through our neighborhood with my husband Dan. I wholeheartedly believe that I am so lucky to get to live this life, do my job, be surrounded by amazing people, and experience such wildly beautiful moments.

Hello, friends! I'm Emilee.

"I feel like I have to say this in all caps just to get across how much we love these pictures, but WE LOVE EVERY SINGLE PICTURE!!!!!! The slideshow that Emilee created was so amazing it really did bring us back to that day. My husband and I both shed tears while watching it. I am so happy we found Emilee and Dan and put our trust in them because now we have these memories captured for a lifetime. One of my favorite things about Emilee and Dan was how excited they got about the pictures they were capturing that day. They both were so calm and reassuring as well. We will forever be grateful for the both of them. If anyone would ask me who I would recommend for photos I would without question recommend Emilee and Dan."

"We have been completely blown away by Emilee and her work throughout our time with her as our  photographer. We loved her calm, down to Earth energy, and her creative ability to capture (and help create) the authentic moments in a gorgeous way. When searching for photographers, we felt like all of Emilees work was so stunning, and stood out. We also loved how detailed she was during the whole process, from questionnaires to get to know you, to tips and resources for the day-of and easy communication.

Emilee and her husband were both SO kind and easy to talk to, and we appreciated how much they were able to adapt and work with us through the obstacles of our wedding day. We are in LOVE with how gorgeous, creative and authentic our photos are, and so thankful we chose Emilee. Looking through our wedding gallery, we feel like we get to relive all of the love and intimacy of our day, as well as look in on the moments and details we missed in the chaos. If you want a photographer you can feel confident will capture who you are and the real, genuine moments of your day and always make it absolutely gorgeous - we can't recommend Emilee enough. Definitely a one of a kind photographer, and wonderful experience start to finish."

"Wow, I can't say enough good things about Emilee. She shot a few engagement photos for my husband, and years later, a family session for our little girl who was about to turn one.

Emilee is a dear friend and an amazing artist with so much passion for what she does. Her photos evoke a sense of nostalgia that is hard to pinpoint. Each photo is almost like a quiet and soft memory, which is makes you remember exactly how you felt in that moment. She has a true gift, and I am so glad she shared that with us. We would recommend her a million times over!"
