Adventurous destination wedding
photographer + videographer
for the crazy in love!

"You can make a picture pretty, but if it doesn't mean anything, it’s kind of worthless." 
-Mike Rogers

I’m the redheaded photographer behind the camera and I am so pumped you’re here!

I am a homegrown storyteller who uses photo + video to capture the most incredible weddings--the ones on farms + mountaintops and in barns + backyards!

I live on a farm in beautiful Lebanon, Virginia, but I travel all over the world to capture my couples’ love stories!

I'm also a Jesus-lover, wife to the hottest red-bearded man ever, mom to two incredibly adorable kids, a newbie flower farmer, wanna-be CrossFitter, and I'm obsessed with baking all the carbs, especially when chocolate is involved!

Hi! I'm Emily.

Get to know me more!

I am not one to take risks. But I serendipitously stumbled upon a Virginia wedding photographer who was wanting to travel (I’m a Texan). I fell in love with her photography style, and couldn’t stop comparing her work to any local photographers I’d find. I finally stepped out of my comfort zone to connect with her and see if we’d be a good fit for each other. Even thru emails, I could sense Emily’s genuine and personable nature. After our initial Skype call, I felt totally comfortable and excited about having Emily and her sweet family make the trip down to Texas to celebrate our wedding with us! During the engagement we were periodically in contact via email. She gave me instructions and timelines that allowed us to have everything ready weeks in advance, which made things so easy in the days leading up to the wedding.

When we finally got to meet in person, it was like reconnecting with an old friend. We took a Beloved engagement session the day before the wedding, which also allowed us to get to know each other a little before the real deal. 

Emily was there for me in whatever way I needed & forever captured the loveliness of such a special day. The images we received are irreplaceable

Wedding day, she was there for me in whatever way I needed (and I’m sure so much more that I don’t even know or remember), and forever captured the loveliness of such a special day. The images we received are irreplaceable, and exactly the style that only Emily can deliver. I honestly wish I could have had more time during our whirlwind wedding weekend to get to know the Rogers family better!

I was beyond blown away at having Emily as our wedding photographer! Having Emily capture the precious moments of our special wedding day was a dream come true. I have seen many of her other weddings and sessions through social media but working with her was even better than I'd ever hoped.
My favorite part of her photography style is that it is genuine, creative, and not staged. She is so great at capturing real moments. Yes I am thankful for our staged family wedding photos but my favorites are when we are laughing, kissing, and just having special moments together. I loved our 1st look before the ceremony for that very reason.
I didn't have to worry about Emily missing anything because she was on top of it! She had great communication beforehand and the day of which left me to really enjoy the day! Emily is my favorite photographer and we are beyond blessed to have trusted her with capturing our wedding day.We look forward to future anniversary and family photo sessions with her too! Love you Em!

Emily was so great at capturing real moments...us laughing, kissing, and just having special moments together.

Looking back through our wedding photos, I couldn’t be more amazed at how much I still love them. They are artwork for our home! Emily was such an incredible photographer and made every session feel like hanging out with our friends. We don’t have stuffy pictures of us fake smiling at the camera. We have real moments of love and intimacy that tell our story. I was on the fence about doing a first look on our wedding day, so Emily helped me weigh the pros and cons. Now, that’s my favorite memory of our day! And she created a beautiful leather book to showcase it. Check Em out for your wedding! You won’t regret it!
