wanna know more?
Hi! I'm a coffee loving, travel-obsessed, twenty-something based out of Central Illinois. I'm lucky enough to make a living doing what I love - photographing people! I specialize in weddings (destination + local), senior portraits, + boudoir. I'm so glad you've stopped by my corner of the web, I can't wait to get to know you!
She's a pro. We didn't have to do a thing besides do what she had instructed us to do. So easy! After seeing how beautiful our engagement pictures turned out I could NOT wait for our wedding pictures.

Yoga Pants (I wear them almost every day) > Denim (I mean, does ANYONE actually like jeans?)

I actually like reading books but I’m painfully slow. It only takes 2 hours to watch a movie!
Mix it with Dr. Pepper, Angry Orchard, give me shots, or my favorite - on the rocks!
You better bet I'll climb what I need to for the shot, but deep down I'm terrified.
I wear the same outfit every Saturday. I'm no morning person, so not having to worry about what to wear is essential, plus, I know it's comfy!
We love hosting game nights! Popular games include Phase 10, Dutch Blitz, and our recent obsessions with board games like Catan and the Battle of Hogwarts.

As a boudoir photographer I feel it to be my duty to remind women that these are not "flaws" and that no matter what season of life she is in, she is beautiful, powerful, and sexy. I love providing my clients with gorgeous images and an experience that leaves them seeing themselves in a new light and feeling empowered.
every woman deserves to love every inch of herself.
When Emily shot our wedding, she brought her husband Brandon along as her second shooter. He is just as friendly and easy to work with, and they both made the picture taking process so fun! We did not do a first look, so we had to squeeze pictures in in between the wedding and reception, but I wasn't concerned because I had seen how quickly Emily could get amazing pictures taken during our engagement shoot. We ended up with so many perfect wedding pictures and even had a little extra time between the wedding and reception!
