I’m Emily, I'm so glad you found your way here. I'm an Oregon elopement and intimate wedding photographer providing a customized adventure experience to couples who prioritize dreamy, nature-filled photography that highlights the beauty of your relationship. I know the Oregon Coast (trust me I know all the best spots), the Columbia River Gorge, and Portland like the back of my hand, but I also love exploring new places and I’m always ready to travel to anyplace that is meaningful to you and your love!
I got you.
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!
She was fully invested in us and our vision long before our wedding day! So when our big day finally arrived, she captured everything beautifully, made us and all of our guests feel comfortable in front of the camera, and she even suggested other stunning locations for couple’s portraits near our ceremony spot! We received some of our photos just two days after our ceremony and haven’t stopped gushing over them since! They’re absolutely beautiful, and she captured "us" so eloquently! If you’re thinking about hiring Emily for your wedding, elopement, or bridal portraits (yes, I did those with Emily too!) you can stop searching and take this task off your never-ending to-do list because Emily will exceed all your expectations!"
"Emily made my dream wedding come true! She initially caught my attention with her gorgeous images and style on Instagram, but one of my favorite things about Emily is her responsiveness.
We felt so comfortable and loved by her. She truly was a big part of our best day ever! Planning with Emily was so much fun + super helpful. We did video calls, talked lots about travel & she even gifted us our vow book that we now cherish. I remember receiving our wedding photos and being so blown away by her work! I don’t think our wedding day would have been as great if we would have reached out to someone else. Our wedding photographer and wedding guest all in one! No one will support you and your decisions more than Emily! A true blessing and friend!"
"Having Emily as our wedding photographer was probably the best decision we made! Emily took my high school senior photos, couple photos, and I’m so glad she took our wedding pictures!
Emily is kind, energetic, and attentive to details (like bringing us hand warmers!) She makes shooting together an enjoyable experience, rain or shine. She is responsive and professional the whole process long! My partner and I felt celebrated by her art, and are honored to have worked with her."
"Emily is such a joy to work with! Not only does she have an incredible eye for capturing tender moments, she is unbelievably fun to shoot with.
