EMILY ROAD PHOTO

Serving my couples on one of their most precious of days is what I love most about this job—it's deeply meaningful work to be able to tell stories in a tangible format that will live on for generations.

Photography is so much bigger than myself, and I consider it such an honor to be entrusted to step into these moments with my clients.

I'm devoted to capturing true-to-life, timeless images you'll cherish for the rest of your life. I deliver images with a documentary-feel, delivering galleries that take you right back to these fleeting moments. I consider this job of mine such a privilege, often witnessing some of the most beautifully raw, honest, vulnerable, joyful moments of humanity, and it would be an honor to capture yours.

I travel for most of my work, and would love to meet you wherever your love takes you.

Hi! I'm Emily, and I've been photographing weddings and elopements for over seven years.

I first picked up a camera my senior year of high school in my hometown, Edmond, Oklahoma. I played the clarinet in marching band, and had so much fun capturing those candid memories in the stands on Friday night football games. I quickly realized how incredibly precious it is to be able to gift others a tangible way of re-living moments. Unable to shake the feeling that I was made for this, I've been shooting ever since.

I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and minor in Event Management. With a photojournalistic approach, I guide you through posing on your wedding day without overly-staging moments. I want you to feel comfortable while authentically experiencing your wedding day—it's not about the photos, it's about the way you feel.
