    Highly recommend working with Emma!

    Emma is amazing, and an absolute pleasure to work with! Her photos are beautiful and creative, and we have sooo many gorgeous photos from our wedding day! She is very professional and responsive, and kept in touch with us regularly leading up to the wedding (particularly once the COVID crisis started becoming a factor in our day, she was regularly monitoring all the restrictions/rules in CT and keeping us up to date). We were forced to postpone our big celebration due to COVID, but didn't know up until about 9 days before our original date if we could still do our small ceremony, and Emma was really supportive and went with all the crazy flow with us. We ended up having the most beautiful day, and the best part is we get to work with her again for our full reception in 2021! Thanks so much, Emma!

    Beautiful photos!

    Emma (and Brittany) were awesome to work with at our wedding earlier this year. The level of professionalism in her work was incredible. All of our photos are gorgeous, and the lighting and shadows on so many are breathtaking. It's worth going with a professional for your wedding photos because you're going to want to enjoy marveling at them for a long time. It's hard to limit the number we want displayed in the house. Emma also helped us come up with a specific package that worked better for our timeline and budget.

Owner & Lead Photographer

Hey There, I'm Emma! I'm a loud adventurer who loves to explore outdoors and take gorgeous photos of people in love! I will seriously gush over how cute you two are together and work with you to create magical photos that really represent who you two are in your souls. I went to seven years of art school, so there is seriously nothing that's too weird for me and I love couples who aren't afraid to get goofy, nerdy or go on an epic adventure with me exploring the outdoors. I have a great partner who I've known since we were twelve and together we have an amazing daughter who is a creative wonder, but also a tiny tyrant. I live in New Britain which is an awesome little CT city and I'm a New England girl through and through!
