A little about me

Hey, I'm Emi. I'm an old soul, born in the wrong generation. I was totally meant to live out my 20s in the 1970s, traveling the country in a VW van, listening to classic rock the whole way. 

I've been with my husband, John, since high school. After we got engaged we found out we were pregnant. We got married in 2015 on the beach at Hilton Head Island. It was a quickly planned wedding. I was working a full-time job, going to school, & pregnant so I delegated a lot of the planning to my mom. She did an amazing job and I am so, so thankful for her. But, if I could do it all over again, I would do things much differently. Most of all, I would have invested in a photographer. The only images I have from my wedding day are...😩 Kinda ironic, isn't it? 

That's one of the many reasons I was inspired to become a wedding photographer, what gives me so much passion. Your wedding photos should bring you back to your special day. Let's do it right the first time. 

Not just a photographer, a storyteller for the Loved-up Souls


I was the kid with the old Polaroid camera, begging my mom to buy me another pack of film every time she went to the store. You can say I've always had a thing for documenting moments. 

After I had my babies I fell in love with capturing the moments of their lives. My passion for photography eventually blossomed into a full-time wedding photography business that I absolutely LOVE! Telling love stories is truly what I was meant to do :)

My Journey

Photography is my art. Every time I shoot is a new experience, and I always treat it as such.

The messy, in-the-moment, love-filled, film-like images where you almost FEEL like you're there...thats what inspires me. I adore film so much because it has so much feeling.

I am a true believer in romanticizing your life. All the little moments & the big ones. They are what makes this life worth living. 

 Real life is messy, but thats what makes it beautiful. 

“every shoot I see the world through a whole new lens. Your story will be different from the last, and this ignites my passion all over again.”

What Inspires Me

No matter what, I'm here to serve YOU! 

Wedding days are intimate. You need someone who you can count on to be there for you every step of the way. Someone who you're comfortable with. Someone who will capture all the little details, even ones you may have missed. I've got you.

On wedding days I arrive early to get the bridal party helping the bride get ready. And the groomsmen sneaking a few drinks to calm their nerves. 

You'll most likely find me with a coffee in hand, buzzing with energy to capture one of the most important, memorable days of your lives. I won’t miss a moment. 

Through the ceremony & reception, I’ll be there in the center of it all photographing moments and details that you might’ve missed (Aunt Becky getting down on the dance floor) so that you can relive it all over again. That's my promise to you!

Rain or shine, I won’t miss a beat.

Behind The Lens

My favorite thing to do outside of photography is make memories with my little family. I have two girls, Maddie & Livi, my husband, John, and our two weenie dogs, Max & Bo. We love traveling and experiencing new things together!

 I’m an enneagram 7 so be prepared to laugh your ass off the entire time you’re around me. I’m an absolute  goofball. I've watched The Office & Superstore at least a few dozen times. Anddd I love trying new coffee shops anytime I get a chance!

That’s a little sneak peek into my life and a few of my favorite things. No matter who or where we are, we’re all souls wandering this beautiful Earth, with a different story to share. No two stories are the same. And that’s why I LOVE documenting love stories (and hopefully yours too!)

"I've watched the Office at least 25 times, from start to finish."

My Fav Things





Emi is absolutely amazing! From planning and preparation to receiving our photos she was so helpful and made sure we all felt comfortable. She really made our vision come to life and truly captured us in our photos.

Cami AND Josh

Emi was so much fun to work with! As a photographer myself, I value when someone is good at making me feel comfortable in front of the camera - and she did such a good job! The whole ride home from the shoot we talked about how much fun we had!

Ashlee AND Ty

Emi is one the most patient, sweet, caring photographers I’ve met! I was so worried the photos wouldn’t come out the way I imagined. I WAS WRONG! Emi went above and beyond to deliver exactly what I envisioned and more.

Alyssa AND Preston
