I’m Emily-Melissa, but you can call me Emily or Em even. I’m a wedding and lifestyle photographer located in the best city ever: Chicago, Illinois.

The short of it is, I love telling love stories. It doesn’t matter if that story is the love of another or the love of oneself. And it’s important to me to tell your story in a way that is unique to you. You won’t find any cookie-cutter style photography here. You’re not like everyone else — your photos shouldn’t be either.

My clients value my creativity and experience and put such a trust in me as their photographer for the one of the most celebrated days of their lives. Getting to know you as a couple is essential to my capturing your story so click below to say hello and lets meet up for drinks to see if we’re a great fit for each other!


Emily is a fantastic photographer! From booking with her 8 months before the wedding, to our engagement session and through the wedding day, we truly enjoyed working with her. I am thrilled with how our pictures turned out! She’s friendly, creative, and talented and I would highly recommend her to other couples!


Emily is truly an amazing photographer. Not only does she have an amazing eye but she makes you feel such at ease with every shot she takes. We instantly fell in love with her after our engagement session, and at our wedding everyone was stating how amazingly nice our photographer was! You can tell that she has a heart for wedding photography and it really shows in the photos she delivers. She really captures the essence of each couple-- we personally couldn't be more pleased with how beautiful and personal our photos were! I would recommend her to anyone (and already have), as I know how important wedding photos are, and she will not disappoint!
