Choose a photographer who will help you soak in every moment (with the photos to prove it).

You have discerning taste, and you and your partner aim to build a wedding day experience that pampers your guests, reflects who you are, and revels in the joy of togetherness.

And the rumors are true: it’s going to fly by faster than you can imagine.

Your wedding is cause for celebration.

Above all else, You need a photographer who captures you impeccably and helps you feel like your best self on your wedding day.

You know incredible photography is THE way to make your wedding last for generations, but you don’t want to sacrifice the ability to be present with your nearest and dearest (after all, this combination of loved ones in the same space is the very definition of
“special occasion”).

You need a wedding photographer who will empower you to live in the moment, prioritize the photos most important to you, and deliver a full, start-to-finish collection of your wedding weekend’s festivities that enables you to relive the magic over and over again.

You want to feel comfortable in front of the camera without losing focus on the joy and significance of your celebration. 

What matters most...

On top of receiving a stellar, magazine-worthy collection of images, every one of my clients feels confident, reassured, and cared for (and that doesn’t end at last call for your open bar).

When I’m not working magic behind the camera, I’m enjoying newlywed life with my husband and our two dogs and two cats in Ventura, California. I’m an avid napper with serious weaknesses for beautiful shoes, modern minimalist style, ice cream, and the city of Paris (where I spent a summer in college!).

Weddings are my specialty, from styling stationery to candids at your farewell brunch. 

I'm Emily, a photographer with over a decade of experience and an unwavering adoration for weddings.

Nice to meet you.

Danielle + Brian, belmond el encanto

“Our photos are incredible, show stopping, timeless, and cinematic. We have a complete story of our day and how it felt in photographs, and Emily exceeded all expectations!"

Christina + Alex, Grassini Family Vineyards

“She effortlessly guided the entire wedding party, family and guests through photo shoots, yet somehow remained nearly invisible for more candid shots of the festivities."

Amy + David, San Ysidro Ranch

“It's rare to find someone who is equally talented at both the creative/artistic side and the organizational/planning side, but Emily truly excels in both areas. I highly recommend her!"

My specialty is striking the perfect balance between helping you look your best, and ensuring you still feel like yourselves. Photography should feel effortless; my approach is highly attuned to each couple’s priorities and preferences (and I only work with a small handful of clients each year), so your finished collection of images is the perfect reflection of your thoughtfully-curated festivities.

Photographs endure, and your experience creating them matters.
