    On paper, our relationship is classified as client and vendor. To me, it goes so much deeper than that. By the time your wedding day arrives, I will have already taken your engagement photos, gone over your wedding day dozens of times in my head, and (literally) dreamed about the photos I’m going to capture of you and those closest to you. 

    I am a caretaker at my core and my number one priority is making sure your wishes always come first. Our time together is an experience! So please… take some time to scroll, click, and connect with my work. After all, I want this to be a sure thing! Whenever you’re ready, I look forward to making our relationship official.

    Forever love stories

    "I came upon Emma's work while scrolling through Instagram and immediately fell in LOVE with her style. My fiancé is a farmer and we both wanted to take our engagement pictures on his farm. Emma and Jon were more than happy to come out there. Emma does an amazing job at making people feel comfortable and confident. We were put to ease within the first few minutes. It honestly felt like a fun date!"

    "Emma captures real, BEAUTIFUL images. Emma captured the raw emotion and joyful energy of our wedding day. She captured several images that weren't posed, some of which ended up being my favorite. Aside from her obvious talent in photography, Emma is also really organized and quick to communicate! We are so thankful to have had Emma help us celebrate and capture our day!"

    "Emma took beautiful pictures for our engagement session and on our wedding day! She makes you feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera. Plus, she has a second photographer! It was amazing to have both my husband’s and my reaction to the first look photographed. She was very fast getting pictures back to us, faster than any photographer I’ve worked with before. We will definitely be using Emma for future pictures!"

    During your engagement session, my goal is to make you feel 100% comfortable in front of my camera, and of course, I’ll also be capturing some swoon-worthy shots of the two of you in a more casual setting.

    1. Engagement Photos

    What to expect

    1-2 months before your wedding day, we’ll connect to put all the little details in place so you don’t have to worry or wonder about a thing. This is your chance to communicate any special requests or ask questions before the big day!

    2. Pre-Wedding Prep

    It’s finally here! I want you to focus on being present, and I will work (sometimes behind the scenes) to capture the real moments that make your love story uniquely yours. From directing portraits to documenting the day, I will make sure you get all of the shots you want.

    3. The Wedding Day

    Relax, put your feet up, and enjoy your honeymoon! I will be emailing you shortly with a link to your online gallery. As you revisit your special day, think about which photos you want to print or include in your wedding album. I can help you throughout the process so you have a keepsake to treasure for the rest of your life!

    4. Post Wedding

    … but before we get too carried away, let’s start with a coffee date. I'm excited to hear about your wedding day plans and find out what’s on your photography wish list!

    Of course! If you’re in love with my work but aren’t local to Huron, SD we can definitely still make this happen! Travel rates aren’t nearly as much as you might think. Just shoot me a message and we can work out the details!

    Do you travel for weddings?

    Most of the images I capture will be real, authentic moments that happen throughout the day, but if you want any specific portraits, please let me know! Putting together a list of the portrait combinations you absolutely must have helps me to call out names and move things along a little more quickly!

    Do you need a photography “wish list” for our wedding?

    I’ve been told I’m especially good at making people feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera (aw, shucks). These days, people are so critical of themselves, especially in photos… it honestly breaks my heart. I love showing people how beautiful (or handsome) they really are and I'll do just about anything to get natural laughs and expressions. Trust me, it will never feel forced or awkward and so many of my shots will be candid moments, you won’t even know I’m there!

    I struggle with having my picture taken. What if I feel uncomfortable and look awkward in photos?

    Every wedding is different, but typically I edit and deliver anywhere from 600-800 images from your day. The photos are delivered via an online gallery where you will have the ability to download as many high res images as you want! I am always happy to help couples print or package wedding photos into a keepsake album, too.

    How many photos will we get and how do you deliver them?

    Simple: all you have to do is contact me! I typically book weddings one year in advance, but please reach out even if it’s short notice because you just never know! I require a 25% retainer to reserve your date.

    How do we see if our date is available and reserve a spot on your calendar?

    You’re here because you know how important wedding photography is… and the fact that you’re taking the time to find your perfect photographer means you’re already one of my favorite people! Wedding cake is pretty amazing but it doesn’t last forever. Your wedding pictures, on the other hand, allow you to travel back in time and relive the day over and over again. If you’ve ever sat down and looked at photos from your parent’s or grandparent’s wedding, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

    Each of my wedding packages includes an engagement session, full wedding day coverage with digital photo files and printing rights, and customizable extras, from additional portraits to heirloom albums that capture the magic of your special day forever. Your wish is my command!

    All inclusive wedding day packages, including your engagement session, start at 2800.
