I am a designer & photographer based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. I love staying inside & drinking my Nitro High Rise while watching 90 sitcoms. My all time favorite is Seinfeld. I love all things FBI shows & alternative music. I love the city and hope one-day to move to NYC

Hey there!


I work one-on-one with my clients as well as providing a professional and authentic experience. Oftentimes I have clients or friends of clients comment on how comfortable they feel and they know photographers who don’t create a good atmosphere. They complain about the lack of personality their past photographer/designer had. I strive to be inclusive, professional, and best of all your personal hype man & friend. 






I work my hardest to go above and beyond for every single one of my clients. You are always in the loop whether that be via email, social media, phone calls, etc. You will receive updates, guides, and more walking you through booking to receiving your deliverables. My goal is to provide everyone a high-quality and fun experience so they go home and say "Wow I can't believe how much fun I had."

Once in a lifetime experience




I often am told how bubbly and outgoing I am. And it's true, I never shut up. I am your hype-man and your new friend. I make sure to make sure all my clients feel comfortable, confident, and beautiful! There is never a dull moment when you work with me!

“So Happy"

"Right as we started, I could tell that we were going to have an amazing time. During our couples shoot, she was able to bring out the best in my boyfriend and I without making us feel awkward. She's definitely willing to work with what you're comfortable with. There was never a boring moment! Emma is such a talented photographer, and I am so happy we were able to work with her!"
