The Motto
“If you don’t do it, you’ll never get to tell your kids that you did it. So go do it!”
My #1 motto. It’s so important to get out of your comfort zone and try new things! Why be ordinary when you can be extraordinary, right? I want to have stories and adventures so I try to live by this as much as possible.

The Dream
My business is about capturing the moments that matter, big or small. We are so blessed in this world to have the technology that lets us hold our memories in our hands, to collect & cherish them. I set out to capture the authentic, raw & electric moments. The ones that are unique to you, the ones you’ll print out and show your grandkids- you know the ones I’m talking about!

The Photographer

I’m Emily

I’m a born adventurer. My life- thus far- has been filled with adventure, like I said I love a good story! I have this goal in my head to one day sit around a fire with my family and tell my stories to a room full of audible gasps and wide eyes! Can you see it now? I’ve fallen for adventurous love & people so, if you can see yourselves sharing a wild-ass wedding story and showing off the photos to match, then I’m your girl!  After all, there is nowhere love cannot reach so let’s go prove it!

How It Works

First Things First

Book a call: let’s chat! We’ll hop on Zoom or Facetime and talk through all the things. We’ll get to know each other a bit better, you can share all your plans for the big day with me, we’ll talk details and I’ll answer all of your questions!

Second Things Second

Pick your service: the best fit for you! Take your time, decide what suits you and your day best. Once you’ve chosen, let me know and I’ll draw up a contract for you to sign online. Just like that, all the business stuff is out of the way & we can get to the fun part!

Last But Not Least

Planning your day: the fun part! I’m here for whatever you need, my job is to help make your dreams come to life. Whether it’s finding a location for your engagement shoot, picking the perfect outfit, or just being someone to bounce ideas off of, the whole 9 yards, I’m here for you!

We knew instantly she was the one for us!!

Emily was referred to us by our very close friends. As soon as we virtually “met” to interview for our engagement photos and wedding, we knew instantly she was the right fit for us! She is extraordinarily talented and her slinky, vivacious personality makes you feel like you’ve known her for years. She takes the time to get to know each couple, our vibes, and really listened to the vision that we had for our engagement photos and our wedding.


She made us so comfortable!

Her Instagram speaks for her style and I love how genuine the emotions are that she is able to capture! Emily is so great at giving direction to ensure she is able to capture the perfect moment- she made it so easy & comfortable!

So friendly & professional!

Emily is so friendly and professional in your job. She helped us to pose and caught meaningful moments. It is what we expect our wedding photographer to do. Absolutely would recommend her to anyone!

Always Amazing!

I’ve worked with many photographers, but Emily is by far my favorite! She is such a natural talent. She always manages to get amazing pictures and makes you feel so confident the entire time. I have done 4 shoots with her so far and can’t wait for more! I’m not yet engaged or married, but will be sure to use her as my photographer when that day comes.



Emily has a magical way of not just capturing pictures but she captures moments as well. I am in awe of her level of kindness, commitment, and passion.



Emily was such a beautiful photographer to work with, inside and out! 💛 She made our experience personal, fun and comfortable the whole time. My husband and I even agreed we haven’t had THAT much fun behind a camera ever before! The photos Emily took are absolutely stunning, and I truly couldn’t have asked for anything more. If you’re looking for someone to capture your special moments, look no further- You’ve found your girl! 



Best experience ever!!!

Emily is a super amazing person and photographer. She makes every experience fun and light-hearted. She is adventurous, talented, and experienced. I would highly recommend The Roaming and The Restless for any weddings/elopements or just a fun photoshoot. Definitely our go-to photographer!!!
