My name is Emily, welcome to my website! I am a wedding and portrait photographer who lives in Clarkston, Michigan. I’ve owned my business since 2005! It still seems weird to do the math on that one. I’ve shot hundreds of weddings and over 700 portrait sessions. If there’s a lighting situation on this planet I’ve shot in it. From caves to beaches to dark churches to outside gardens. I’ve shot in barns, on boats, in cars, in living rooms, museums… Light is everything in photography and there is just no way, other than years of experience, to have shot in so many varying and challenging situations. And in that time I've fine tuned my craft of reading people and knowing when to anticipate powerful moments too. I know exactly what to look for and when to look for it. I know how to be invisible and how to take the lead. I know when to expect the unpredictable. And that kind of experience makes ALL the difference. I definitely can offer you peace of mind but there's even more than that...
I've been in the wedding industry for over a decade. Booking me means also having so much valuable information at your disposal! I can offer so much insight and assist in so many ways. In a way I can be your designated wedding go-to pal throughout your entire wedding planning process. Most photographers cringe at the thought of clients texting them questions about their wedding day throughout the year. NOT ME! PLEASE DO!
Planning a wedding is HARD, stressful, and can be overwhelming. If you don't have a wedding planner you can really feel lost. I'm not a wedding planner, but I can definitely help you!!
And the more I know about your wedding the better your pictures will turn out! It's a win win situation. Take advantage of what I know and all the weddings I've seen. Ask me anything!
I can tell you how your flower arrangements on your head table will look in pictures, I can tell you where to put your cake cutting during your reception to optimize your dance floor and keep your party moving. I can offer advice based on venue knowledge and lighting knowledge. I can tell you the exact minute of sunset on any given day, I can offer makeup tips, vendor recommendations, debunk wedding planning myths and just be an extra shoulder to lean on. An unbiased ear to bounce ideas off. (The only bias I have is wanting you to have the PERFECT wedding day!)
