I started my business in 2012, fresh out of college, with a Bachelor's degree in Mass Communication and a focus in photojournalism. I've been capturing weddings ever since and I'm so honored my clients trust me to document their love stories! I love to travel and I frequently serve the Dayton, Cincinnati, and Columbus areas. Classic rock music is my jam (literally). I love to thrift, sip on cold brew coffee, and cuddle my two rescue kitties (Jimi & Audrey).

I find perfection in the imperfection.
"From a distance it might look straight, but when you get close up, you can always see the line waver. And I think that's where the beauty is." -Margaret Kilgallen

Hi, I'm Emily.

A Dayton, OH Wedding &
Portrait Photographer.

I grew up in Dayton, Ohio, where I found my love for photography. I graduated with my BFA from Wright State University, studying both photography and art history. Through school, I photographed a wide variety of subjects, but always found myself sticking to portrait work. There’s something about photographing two people in love that draws me back–whether its their happiness, their passion, or their story–I want to be there. I enjoy finding the perfect composition and creating a perspective that is uniquely my own. I love reading, yoga, and dogs. Photographing a couple brings out the book-nerd in me; it’s like I’m telling a story with my camera.
