The Emily Kowalski Experience


Getting ready in the morning through those special dances and everything in between! I promise you that every part of your wedding day will be captured beautifully and with skill! I know how to use that window light to make you look flawless! I also know how to manipulate my flashes to make your first dance POP! I've got you! 


You want moments captured of your mom helping you get dressed with tears in her eyes. The moment she's dreamed of since you were a baby in arms. Your first look with your dad,  the first time you see your HUSBAND (OMG, did that just actually happen?!?)! All that emotion captured perfectly. I'm there for it!

Average wedding monthly payment - $300

Your wedding is one of the biggest days in your life, and these feelings, these moments, you want to remember them forever. Make sure to hire a photographer who will give you images that will remind you of how you felt on your wedding day, over and over again! (I'll even be sure to capture your crazy cousin on the dance floor!) 

The Investment Details

While considering all your options for wedding photography, keep a few things in mind. First, I offer monthly payment plans and accept credit cards (you get those points!!) Your total cost is broken into monthly payments leading up to your wedding, almost like a subscription service! I've found that it's way easier for couples to book when they don't have to put down half their cost up front! Second, your photos are such an important piece of your day. There'll be a large photo of the two of you above your fireplace, an album on the coffee table, a photo of you on his desk at work or in his wallet. Of course you’ll enjoy every piece of your wedding, but it’s all gone within the week - maybe you’ll eat some stale cake on your first year anniversary (10/10 would not recommend). But in 30 years what will you, your children, your grandchildren have? Your photos! 

Things to note:

We had such a great experience working with Emily and loved our engagement and wedding photos. She is truly a talented photographer and knows how to capture amazing moment in the most perfect locations. Emily spent our entire wedding day with us and worked hard to capture every meaningful moment and more!

During our wedding planning process, she provided us with timelines for the wedding and helped create the perfect one that fit with our day. Emily did unexpected extras from start to finish that showed her talent and professionalism. We highly recommend using Emily to capture your memories.

Emily was a joy every step of the way! My family and friends talked about how easy she was to work with and how comfortable she made them feel. We got our final photos within a week. She communicated well the entire time and was very organized and helpful.

My husband and I couldn’t have choose a better photographer for our wedding than Emily. We knew from the moment we met her that she’d be professional, yet knew how to make you laugh and enjoy the whole process. She took the time to get to know us so she’d know what we wanted for our photos. Emily also took our engagement photos and she listened to all our crazy requests of including our horses and dogs. Overall, Emily went above and beyond for us and we couldn’t have been happier!

I could not have asked for a better photographer! Emily does such a great job with everything. From capturing the perfect moments, to organizing group pictures, she manages to do it all with ease. My family could not stop talking about how great of a job she does. We were all so comfortable with her that we sometimes forgot she was our photographer and not one of our friends! She not only kept us on schedule for the day, but made sure we got all of the pictures that we wanted. It was so nice to not have to worry about moments that could be missed on our big day. Our photos also turned out amazing. We couldn't have asked for more!
