I'm Emily - a music teacher turned wedding photographer who loves black coffee, Friends, the crackling sound of an old vinyl record, and everything bagels. I grew up in the western 'burbs of Chicago, and a piece of my heart still lives in that beautiful city. I moved to Cincinnati to attend Xavier University (Go X!), met this cute guy named Alex, and never looked back.

I'm based in Cincinnati, but I've never met a city I wouldn't visit for a love story. 

I believe love is love, Black lives matter, and I wish I didn't have to say that because everyone should believe the same.

My Style

I am a little clumsy. I don't like peanut butter and chocolate together. I sometimes sing my words when I get really excited. I love my dog, Louie. I take too many photos of my daughters, Charlie and Quinn. I spend hours on hours day-dreaming about our next travel adventure.

I care deeply about my clients, and am friends with many of my past couples. I love learning about what makes you unique. If you're a little weird too, I think we'll get along great.

I'm a little weird.
But aren't we all?

I really do. And not just in a "I cry when I watch rom coms" kind of way (I don't). I believe in REAL love stories - like yours and like mine. 

Your love story is full of big moments and little moments. It is made up of memories like the very first time you met, backpacking Europe together, meeting each other's families, getting engaged (!), but also the way you smile at each other, your partner grabbing your hand while you drive around town, and the giggle that only you can make happen. THOSE are the moments that make your story so special, and those are the moments I aim to capture in your photos.

I believe in love stories.

Oh, hey!
