I realized my passion for photojournalism when I was 14 years old. I would take my camera everywhere I went & document everything that made me feel happy. This is what I still do today! I aim to document moments that have emotion tied to them, which is why weddings are the perfect environment for me! The wide range & amount of emotion experienced on a wedding day is such a beautiful thing to witness & photograph. 

My obsession for documenting emotion-filled moments is what guides my game plan for each wedding I photograph. I will not treat your day like a strictly posed photo shoot with a shot list waiting to be checked off. I will treat your day with the sincerity, care, & intention it deserves. You being able to fully experience the feelings & emotions that come with your wedding day is my top priority! And as you are able to be fully present throughout your day, those organic, candid & beautifully raw photos will flow so naturally. 
For as long as I can remember I dreamed of combining my passion for photography with my passion for traveling. When I photographed my first destination wedding, I realized that the energy throughout the day felt so unique & different than anything I had ever experienced!

the diversity of location, views, & culture
the storytelling shown within the gallery
the feelings of love and support from all the guests that traveled to attend
the intimate atmosphere 

It all triggered this insane creative spark inside of me and I knew I had found my passion.

My career truly is a constant dream come true, I am so in love with what I do. I can't wait to help you celebrate with your closest inner circle & document all the magical moments that naturally occur in such a special setting.

Hi Lovers, I'm emma Kay

i Welcome & appreciate Intentional Details

Let's do this!

If you’re here it means that you don’t want a wedding gallery full of perfectly posed & forced reactions. You want to be able to remember your day by looking back on every genuine & heartfelt laugh, tender glance, and joyful tear.

My promise is that your destination wedding will be documented thoughtfully - with an artistic eye and genuine appreciation for the beautiful moments that make it uniquely yours.

I love Reformed Pilates! When I'm not traveling, the pilates studio is where you will find me. 


On the rare occurrence I have a free weekend, you can find me curled up in bed reading some kind of fantasy romance novel. If you have read any Sarah J Mass books we will 100% get along.


If you are on vacation with me you can most definitely expect to see & prioritize every sunset (and sunrise if we're feeling crazy). 


My love language is acts of service.. which means you'll be my favorite person if you show up to our shoot with dutch bros.


If I’m on aux - you can expect “All Too Well 10 minute version” to be played at least 2x. Last year I was in taylor’s top .01% of spotify listeners (considered my biggest life accomplishment so far)


I love to talk about astrology! my sun is scorpio, moon is cancer, & rising capricorn!

Emma Finds Ways to Personally Connect With Her Clients to Create a Close Knit Relationship.

“I hired Emma to photograph my elopement. I knew exactly what I envisioned for my photos, and the only person who could achieve my vision was Emma. Our photos turned out even better than I imagined!!!

Not only did the end product exceed our expectations, but the process was seamless as well. Emma conducts herself professionally and finds ways to personally connect with each of her clients to create a close-knit relationship. I will definitely be hiring her again in the future!!”

it Was The Most Fun I've Ever Had Taking Photos...

Me and my fiancé went with Emma for our engagement photos and it was the most fun I’ve ever had taking photos. She made us so comfortable, was great at communicating ahead of time and gave us small directions that made our photos so beautiful! All of the photos Emma took were perfect, and it’s not an exaggeration when I say I spent hours smiling over each photo. We can’t wait to have her capture our wedding day!

I have admired & followed Emma’s work for a long time. I’ve watched her work hard & create literal magic but when it was my turn to be in front of her camera, I had no idea what to expect! Right off the bat, Emma made us both feel so comfortable & instantly complimented us. Instant connection with her. She directed us perfectly and was hyping us up the whole time!!! It was insane how there was no pressure or stress, it just felt like some friends hanging out and taking some pictures:) And that's the way I like it.
