The things I am most passionate about in life are wedding cake and chai lattes, both of which I get to enjoy regularly (perks of being a wedding photographer!) But on a more serious note, I am passionate helping couples who may not feel completely comfortable in front of the camera – they’re nervous about having their photo taken. I serve couples who know photography is important and they value those photos so much, but they don’t think they’ll be “good at it.” They trust me to make them look fabulous, and I do exactly that! I coach them every bit of the way, even making the most minor adjustment to make them look like naturals in front of the camera. My couples always leave saying “wow! That was actually a lot of fun!” I’m seriously so honored and humbled every single time a couple chooses me to spend their wedding day with them! I couldn’t dream of a better job!
As a photographer, I’ve shot over 120 weddings in the course of 5 years and I’ve been published in Rocky Mountain Bride Magazine, both in print and online. My work has been featured in Wyoming Weddings Magazine, Borrowed & Blue, and Modern Weddings. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Studio Art with an emphasis in Photography from the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
I grew up in Central Nebraska and I fall in love with open spaces and dirt roads over and over again. I've been married to my husband Derek since May of 2015 and we have two of the cutest fur babies. I love snuggling on the couch, and long car rides. My heart belongs to my Savior Jesus Christ and all the glory goes to Him, which is why you can find Romans 11:36 at the end of every blog post.
I love serving the world by treating each and every couple like their wedding day is the most important thing. Your wedding day is one of the best days ever, and I like to think that your wedding day is one of my best days too!

married to my amazing husband
I wish that I could give Emily more than 5 stars, because she was by far our favorite wedding vendor to work with for our big day. She did our engagement photos and wedding photos, both of which turned out absolutely stunning. She is both professional and easy to work with, which is hard to come by in a photographer. Emily captured our wedding day so perfectly, and we have gotten so many compliments on our photos already. I always was worried about how my wedding photos would turn out because I tend to be pretty unphotogenic, but we have so many photos that seriously look like they are straight off of a Pinterest board.

I couldn’t be more pleased with Emily’s work than I already am. I hired Emily as my wedding photographer and she was absolutely amazing! I love how she is able to capture scenically beautiful pictures without losing sight of the couple. I’m so pleased with his clear my picture are!
She was incredibly efficient, patient and just overall enjoyable to work with. She came in very well prepared and just knocked it out of the park. 10/10 would recommend Emily to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

Hiring Emily as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions my husband and I ever made. I can go on and on about how beautiful her pictures are, but that is obvious by looking at her website. While I am amazed with how lovely our photos turned out, what sets Emily apart from other photographers is the heart she has for each of her clients. The day of my wedding Emily was kind, knowledgeable, and prepared. She had a Bride Emergency kit ready, she checked in with me throughout the day to see if I needed anything, she made sure to get all the poses I requested, and she even handed tissues to me (gracefully and secretly) during the ceremony. She is truly incredible!

Emily did our engagement and wedding pictures and we are SO happy with all of them! She is fun to work with and does a great job of getting everyone put together in great poses in a timely manner. She is very responsive to questions and very helpful! She even provided a timeline suggestion for my whole wedding day to make sure everything flowed smoothly and had a second shooter there for the whole day! She worked with us to get great engagement pictures since there was rain the first day we planned-we still got some awesome "rainy day" pictures, but then had a second shoot on a beautiful, sunny fall day! The album she put together of our wedding pictures is gorgeous! We will treasure the pictures and memories forever!

My new husband and I could not have picked a better photographer! Emily did both our wedding pictures and engagement pictures. She was absolutely amazing to work with and the photos are unbelievably beautiful! Emily has captured our day so perfectly we could not have asked for more from her. She has been amazing, so professional and friendly! She was the perfect choice for our special day and our engagement session. We will treasure these photographs forever! I would highly recommend Emily as your photographer!

Emily is a fantastic photographer. We are so happy we were able to book Emily as our wedding photographer and will cherish our photos forever. My husband and I are not typically comfortable in front of the camera, but Emily is so easy to talk to and was great at making us feel relaxed. Because of that, our photos really captured our personalities. Emily has a great eye for capturing the most scenic backgrounds (perfect for mountain weddings) and caught all the sweet little moments of our wedding day as well.

Oh my goodness, Emily was amazing. From providing structure for the day to taking stunning pictures, and getting the full portfolio back in crazy fast time, I couldn't be happier with our wedding photos that we will have for the rest of our lives! she had crazy good ideas, and also encouraged us to be our silly selves, making our photos look truly like us! I will continue to recommend her to everyone I know!

Emily photographed our wedding last June in Longmont, CO. I'm 100% confident no-one could've captured the magic of our day better than she did. Well over 1500 photos, all a perfect window to the moment in time. Her creativity is unrivaled. For example, she explored some double exposer shots while we were shooting and created a wedding photo from a fairytale. Really, you should just experience some of her wedding magic yourselves.
