You don’t have to fit into a box around here. I’m not a one size fits all photographer and I’m not just here to build my portfolio, hit some sort of diversity marker, or capture photos just for my own Instagram account. I am here for YOU. When going to a wedding, I have no ideal client or hidden agenda. Your love story isn’t something for me to gain, but something for me to understand, feel, and capture. If you’re a couple madly in love and ready to get raw and honest with me, then you’re in the right place. The only thing I care about: the true love between you both. I give my entire heart and soul to my couples, and they become more like friends and family. So welcome to the crew! Should we get matching t-shirts and make this thing legit?
Although I definitely, definitely love cookies, I hate cookie-cutter wedding shit. I’m all about getting to know you as a couple and understand you, your inside jokes, what means the most to you, your humor and the unique ways you show up for each other. The memories capture are natural & candid, never forced or highly posed. Moments that make you ugly cry and snort-laugh are the bees knees. My goal is to photograph the way your day FELT, and I’m not here for the Pinterest shot list bullshit. I value art, honest moments and real love. One day you'll look back on these memories when you're super old without any teeth and say, "damn, we were so hot, and we're still so in love, and I'm so fucking glad we have these photos to reminisce on our lives." I capture your day artistically and naturally as real moments unfold. We live in a world of so much overstimulation, and I really value focusing on life's little moments -- a stolen kiss on the cheek, belly laughs, chasing each other up the stairs, booty grabs, staying in with pizza on a Friday night... The real things that matter.
"Hire this woman!! If I could give Emma a 6-star review I would. Her work absolutely blew us away. She captured our vision perfectly and then some. Whatever your vibe is, Emma will enhance it. She is kind, genuine, professional, and has a very soothing presence. Her eye for detail is the chef's kiss. Put your trust in her and she will deliver! We will cherish our photographs forever and plan on being repeat customers for all of our big life events."

"Wow! I had the opportunity to work with both Emma and her husband Peter, who is a videographer. They are an amazing team. They were very organized and helpful in getting my huge bridal party in line for pictures. I was shocked at how quickly I received my sneak peek photos and just from those alone, I am in love. Emma captured every moment so beautifully and in her own unique style. Her bubbly personality and kind soul really helped us feel comfortable during our wedding. I highly recommend booking her for your event!"

"Calling all brides! If you’re considering hiring Emma for your wedding (or any photography needs) please, please, please look no further. She was the best thing about my wedding day, besides my husband. She was so much more than a wedding photographer for us. She was a planner and truly kept the day flowing, she was our hype girl, she was our friend. She has scissors and gum and floss and all the little emergency items you end up needing on your wedding day. She communicated with us every step of the way and constantly reminded us to soak it all in. She is an incredible photographer and truly has a gift for capturing special moments. We will never forget our wedding day and have the most gorgeous photos to look back on forever. Please do yourself a favor and book Emma right now. You will not regret it!"

"Our experience with Emma was truly wonderful. Besides the fact that her photos are simply GORGEOUS masterpieces, she is just an amazing person to be around. Emma took photos of our wedding, and throughout the entire process (constantly changing plans during COVID, high emotions, unknowns and uncertainties), Emma was an absolute GEM - so supportive, a constant rock and a calm presence amid the stressful craziness that a wedding can be. We really couldn't recommend Emma highly enough - she's certainly professional, yet feels instantly like your best friend and biggest fan. Don't hesitate - just book her!"

I’m Emma, and I’m stoked you’re here! A bit about me - I'm like a solar panel, so I feel most alive with my toes in the Tahoe sand and the sun on my skin. My 105 plant children, 3 dogs, 1 cat, newborn baby, and my husband are my reason for existence. I laugh at my own jokes more than others do, I kiss my dogs on the mouth, cold pizza is the perfect breakfast food, and I full heartedly believe there’s a Friends quote for every situation. Maybe that explains why I live most of my life as awkwardly as Chandler? Haha
I want you to go forward thinking of me not as your photographer, but as your friend. I’m here for every step of your day. I want you to know that you can fully be yourselves around me and not hold a guard up. I’m here for your meaningful moments and to showcase the messy, genuine, honest, and important love you both share.
