TLDR: Hi, I'm Emily and I am addicted to
thrifting, travel, life chats, and snuggling my dog.
Behind the camera and as a human I do my best to be the most genuine version of myself at all times. This includes being inclusive AF and loud about it. At the age of 28, I now fully embrace my addiction to caffeine (Lorali Gilmore level, no joke). I absolutely love to explore new places and meet new people. I have created this business to give my dog a better life (kidding not kidding). In my off time, you can find me perusing thrift stores and yard sales. I joke that I love to travel but it’s basically just me reading my current book in new pretty locations. I hope that we can meet and have a life chat soon!

Each wedding I walk into, I bring with me all the experiences that have built me into the person I am today. One of the major experiences that has formed who I am as a human as well as who I am as a photographer is love and grief. After losing my high school sweetheart husband, Zach, in 2021 my view on life forever changed. With this new filter on how I see life, I also see moments that others may miss. Love and grief play so closely together and it has forever shifted my view of weddings. The way your person looks at you across the room, how your mom wipes a tear away during your father-daughter dance, your best friend’s belly laugh while you struggle with your tie in the morning, the way your sister’s face lights up when she sees you in your gown for the first time. Those moments that are so fleeting they can be bypassed by some will forever be at the forefront of my mind.
Life is fragile, life is amazing, life is heavy. All of these memories and experiences are what I bring to each wedding I photograph. Shifting my focus towards people and moments has allowed me to capture memories.
You enjoy honest imagery and not recycled Pinterest content

I took a black-and-white film photography class in 2011 (this is why I still love and incorporate film into every wedding). I got my first professional digital camera in high school in 2012. The first wedding I photographed was in 2015. I quit my career path to counseling and became a full-time photographer in 2020. At this point, my cameras feel like an extension of my hand.
I would consider my style unique in the sense that the majority of the day I focus on documentary style or photojournalistic photography. I want photography to be the last thing on your mind during your day. Enjoy the moment so that I can capture the moment authentically. When there is extra time during portraits or at the end of the night I do love to add some unique flares and may have you pose for some cool lighting effects that can add some extra pizzazz to your final gallery. In short, photojournalistic with a funky twist.
I hear this from nearly every couple I photograph. Yup, even those stunners that look so natural and carefree in my portfolio! It’s not an everyday experience to have a camera shoved in your face so my easy-going approach combined with my years of experience leads even the most awkward and camera-shy folks to look like themselves in every photo! Our goal is to highlight your relationship, not your imperfections. As a plus-sized self-proclaimed weirdo and goofy goober, I get it and I’ve got your back! You just get to have fun and look at your person, I’ll handle the rest.
I live in Southern Maine but work wherever you are! I have traveled all over the world for photography and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Special pricing is available for Arizona, Utah, Montana, Colorado, Alaska, Florida, Ireland, Iceland, UK, New Zeland, and all the National Parks ;)
