Intentional Storytelling That Captures Every Moment, No Matter How Small.

I’m going to make a bold statement here. Your wedding photography isn’t actually about your wedding day. It’s about immortalizing your memories so you can look back and re-experience every happy memory all over again when you come back to your gallery in a year, ten years, and fifty years.

  • You're dreaming about striking, powerful images that create a narrative in your gallery from start to finish.
  • You value the in-between moments just as much as the big moments.
  • You love your people fiercely and want photos that reflect that love.
  • You’re looking for an in-depth experience that results in photos that feel unique to you and your story.

My Mission? Make Your Photos More Than Just Photos.

Each portrait I take is a moment held in time that encapsulates every happy tear, every tight squeeze, and every in-between. I capture that spark between you and your loved ones in whatever form that takes - wildly-romantic-giddy love between you and your favorite person or deep-seated familial love with everyone important enough to be present on your wedding day.

Storytelling through photography is my passion and I firmly believe that everyone has a story that is meant to be shared and documented.

Engagement shoot

I would highly recommend Emma! My fiancé and I did an engagement shoot at a historic building in the Loop and the pictures turned out absolutely beautifully. He and I were both very nervous in front of the camera, but she has such a positive and calm demeanor that we were really put at ease. We can’t wait to send out the pictures with our invitations, and it will be so special for us to have them in the years to come.

Well done Emma!

Emma was very professional to begin with. Her work ethic and energy was amazing. But besides all of that, the quality of her work is outstanding. We’ve both decided that in every memorable events that comes, Emma should be there to capture them all.
