It's wedding time, baby!

What you need to know!

my philosophy

1) Relationships are about raw moments not Hallmark poses:

If you and your SO love dancing around, having pillow fights, making faces, adventuring, rock climbing, playing board games... relationships are ALL about getting to know all the little quirks that make the other person who they are & I am ALL about capturing those moments for you!

& so...

2) As your photographer, I am here for you!

My job as your photographer is to record all those fun little quirks & candid moments in your relationship! Your engagement and/or wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime event, & I am totally here for making it everything you dreamed it would be! So whether a coffee date planning the wedding, sending each other Pinterest boards with crazy ideas, or just chatting about the future & sharing in your excitement, I am here for all of it!

my style: natural, joyful storytelling

FAQ

LOGISTICS

Where are you based & do you travel?

I am based on Southwest Florida and YES YES YES! I will travel! Contact me with your location and event date and I will get back to you with a travel fee which includes flight/gas money and housing. No worries; I love finding deals and will find the most affordable option available. With destination weddings, I am always down to figure it out!

When will we receive our photos?

Your will receive an online gallery link (via Pixieset) with all your photos within a maximum of 5 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story). You will have complete ability to download ALL photos and use them as you wish!

Do you edit all of our photographs?

Yes I do! Part of the fee for shooting your wedding is that each photo is individually edited and enhanced in Adobe Lightroom to create a beautiful final piece.

How many photos will we receive?

While the amount of photos varies, you can check out the investment page under "couples" to see how many minimum photos are included in each session.

Can we request the raw, unedited photos?

The raw, unedited photos are not available for viewing or purchase.

Will you attend the wedding rehearsal?

If possible, I would like to attend the rehearsal of the ceremony in order to become familiar with the location and determine where I will place myself during the events. If this is not an option or travel does not permit it, no worries! I have a lot of experience adapting to new situations and I will be able to maneuver to where I need to be.

Do you have an assistant photographer?

Whenever possible, I will have my lovely assistant -- Emmy Cheese - who is also my amazing roommate and life manager come along to keep me on track ;)

STYLE

How would you describe your style?

NATURAL
Natural light & natural motion! I am a big proponent of natural light, which means shooting outdoors! Whether it's the reception, ceremony, or the couples photos, I would love to try and incorporate natural light into your wedding!
Plus, this term doubles to cover my second trademark: natural poses. No one-kind-fits-all with couples; I want to showcase YOU and YOUR relationship, which means in our coffee date or over the phone, we'll talk about the quirks of your relationship to make this shoot uniquely about you ♡

JOYFUL
I want to capture the things you love about one another & the special joy that fills people when they choose to care so deeply for another person. I will always ask couples what their favorite little things the other person does are so that we can record those in our session! ♡

STORYTELLING
If your photographer is not telling your story, what are they doing?? Photos should tell the entire story of the wedding, so you can remember the day, not just the moments :) Before your wedding, we will go over a shot list, & I will always be moving around & looking to capture those extra little interactions that you can look back on in the long run to remember the day like it was yesterday! ♡

What are your thoughts on posing?

Personally, I prefer what I like to call "directing" over posing! What that means is that more often than posing my couples, I will give them an action that they get to do whatever they want with (ex. waltz, tickle fight, crazy piggy back ride...). This method of directing photos makes for more natural expressions, reactions, and more fun memories!

Do I have to provide a shot list?

It is always helpful to hear what you as the bride and/or groom would like to see! Pinterest galleries, shot lists, schedules, anything that helps me capture your vision, I am all for it.

BUSINESS

What kind of equipment do you use?

I use professional Canon equipment, and you'll typically see me with my camera "holster" decked out with two cameras and a couple lenses along the way ;) Don't worry, I've got ya covered.

Will you save a date for me?

Unfortunately, I cannot save a date until we have an agreed upon and signed contract. The sooner you touch base with me the better!

Can I do a payment plan?

I do take payment plans. If you are interested in a payment plan, be sure to let me know before signing the contract so that I can draft that in.

If I need to cancel my event, is the deposit refundable?

I require a non-refundable deposit to reserve a date. Once you sign a contract and send the initial deposit, the deposit cannot be refunded if the event is cancelled.

When should I book my wedding?

ASAP! The sooner you book the more chance I will be available for the date you need, and the sooner we can start planning how to make your day as special as possible! I recommend at least three months in advance for weddings.

“Emma is a great combination of both talent and fun. The pictures she produced were absolutely spectacular and she was so easy to work with. She personally tailored our photo shoot to us. Emma made us feel so comfortable around her and the photo shoot was really just a joyous time celebrating our love as Emma captured it. Emma is an incredible photographer and person. I would recommend using her 100%!”
