“I first hired Emily to photograph my daughter, Bailee, the summer before her ninth grade year.  After our experience with Emily, there was no doubt that I would hire her again to capture my daughter's senior pictures! Emily is so patient, kind and thoughtful, and makes the sessions so much fun!!! It’s obvious that she LOVES what she’s doing!!!!”

Savannah Brockenbrough

"Having Emily take my senior pictures was the best decision ever! We had so much fun exploring downtown Atlanta to find the perfect locations for my pictures. She is the best photographer, and she makes the session so easy and fun. My senior pictures are my favorite pictures ever, and I'm so glad we chose her to take them!"

Kathryn Carpenter

"Emily has photographed our family since our oldest daughter, Joey, was in preschool. Now our Joey is going off to collage, and Emily was right there with us every step of the way. Throughout all of these years, Emily has continued to exceed our expectations. She is professional, kind hearted, and creative, and the beauty and quality of her photographs is unmatched. I'm so grateful she was there to capture our daughter's childhood and senior year."

"Sometimes in life, you come across people that are so genuine and radiate joy and happiness all around. This is Emily. This is why we chose her and continue to choose her to document our most important moments in life. Emily took our engagement photos in Savannah which is where we lived at the time. Then she photographed our wedding day, and she captured our first family photos with our daughter. Each time, she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera, and she is honestly just a joy to be around. Not only is she a joy to be around, but let me tell you...her work is magical!!! We are so happy every time we see our gallery!! She captures our family perfectly every single time, and we could not be more pleased with our photos and experience overall."

"Emily is so sweet and incredibly talented! She has been photographing my family and me for over a decade. From senior pictures, to being my wedding photographer, and now photographing my own family, she's been there through it all. She has captured our precious moments into stand still images that I will forever treasure and adore. "

Kelly tully

"Breathtaking is the first word that comes to mind when seeing Emily’s work. We’ve been fortunate enough to know Emily for years! Since our first session, we’ve been hooked! There is truly no photographer that compares. She has a way of capturing the images that matter... the ones that truly give you all the feels. There is nothing posed about her photography; it all comes together so naturally. She has captured so many memories of my family throughout the years, and we look forward to many more!"

Nicole Gardner

"Emily is a true professional. She has photographed my family multiple times, and she always captures our personalities so perfectly! I love glancing over at our walls to catch glimpses of the photographs she taken throughout the years. I still smile at the memories she's caught of my precious family. She’s the best at truly catching my kids personalities in each photograph… not a fake smile. She captures them in their true state, whatever that looks like that day.  

She has this way of connecting with children allowing them to open up and feel comfortable during a session. This of course makes for best pictures! Not only is Emily my favorite photographer, she’s an awesome person to get to know for a bit while she’s taking pictures. She truly slows down and takes her time, never leaving until she’s satisfied. You’re not just another number with her, and she makes the entire process enjoyable. She’s a hard worker and her passion is truly visible in her work. I always love seeing the magic she creates! "

chrissy Adams

"I have admired Emily's work since I stumbled across it back in 2010. I was incredibly grateful that I was able to hire her to photograph my wedding in 2011. Since then, Emily has photographed our family annually, and she's been there to watch us grow into a family of five. From our wedding day to our maternity and family sessions, she's be there every step of the way.  Not only has Emily been trusted to photograph each and every milestone in our lives, she has become a wonderful lifelong friend along the way. "
