I'm Emily, I'm so glad you found your way here. I serve Oregon, Washington, and California couples by providing the best photo experience ever! I specialize in elopements, intimate weddings, and adventure photoshoots on the Oregon Coast (trust me I know allll the best spots), the Columbia River Gorge, and in and around Portland, Oregon. I also love exploring new places & I’m always ready to travel to anyplace that is meaningful to you and your love!
My passion behind photographing couples stems from what I believe my purpose to be: celebrating and sharing the beauty of relationships. I’m here to capture you as you are in this season, to commemorate what you have been through and accomplished together, and give you a celebratory send off into the next phase of your relationship!
I have been photographing couples for 3 years, and while I now shoot with confidence and ease, I never stop honing my craft. Whether it's attending workshops, mentorships, or organizing styled shoots—I'm always trying new creative methods and techniques to ensure I'm consistently producing unique and excellent photographs! I've worked with so many couples and have a plethora of poses and prompts in my back pocket to ensure you never feel awkward! Not to mention we will be jamming to your favorite playlist to ease any nerves.
The goal of our shoot is that you walk away having had an incredible adventure experience with photos that actually capture your love. So with that said, this is your day! Every single part of the shoot will be catered to you.
Getting to know you in our zoom meeting is my favorite part and so important! This will ensure that I help create the best environment that helps you feel like your authentic self, and where I'll catch the vision of your dream photoshoot so I can make it happen. Whether were celebrating by skiing on a mountain together or having a picnic on the coast—whatever you're envisioning for your special day, I got you!
working in the wedding industry myself I can sense when a vendor truly cares for their potential clients/brides and I got all of the good feelings with Emily! She was quick to reply and arranged a video call to meet us. She offered to help me find an outfit and all the other vendors such as the videographer and florist. Emily gave me good options and helped me in my search. She even suggested things we could do and places to go during our vacation! The day of the shoot she was punctual and very easy to work with, she has a sweet personality and is full of smiles and ideas! Yes, she even got our favorite singer to play in the background so we could enjoy our photoshoot more! She let us be ourselves and asked specific questions to make us react naturally and spontaneously for the photos. Needless to say, our beautiful photos were all done while we were still on our trip! I still can't choose my favorite picture because I love so many of them & it's hard to choose. Emily exceeded all of our expectations!
"I was drawn not only to her style but the way she communicated with me...
Emily was funny and aware of us as a couple. She made us feel comfortable and loved that she played music for us while we were taking pictures. Our location was incredible, and we couldn’t have asked for better weather, which turned out some AMAZING pictures. Emily edited them beautifully and was extremely quick to get them to us. I would recommend Emily to anyone looking for a photographer, she’s funny, personable and a beautiful photographer."
"Emily was a joy to work with! She was quick to respond as well as easy and simple to communicate with.
She made planning a breeze was able to suggest a location within a few minutes that was perfect for us and exactly the vibe we were looking for. She answered all of our questions promptly (even with the time difference). When it came time to finalizing our trip some of our details had changed and we were hitting Portland a few days early and she was more then accommodating with the schedule change! On the day of our session she made us feel comfortable and we were able to relax and be ourselves the entire time! She was even great with our dogs!"
"Emily was great and easy to work with (even from all the way across the country)!
