The little things really are the big things - and they deserve to be captured intentionally. Nothing fills me with more joy than bearing witness to the beauty of your love, in all its untamed, uninhibited glory. Let’s bottle up that feeling and make it last.

"Emmy is such an amazing creator and human! Her style is very dreamy, storytelling, and nostalgic. It’s perfect! She connects so well to her clients and shows love and encouragement to everyone. Working with EKP is so much fun and the confidence and self-love I feel during and after my sessions is worth everything. I couldn’t recommend Emmy enough!!"
- Madison & Cael

"From our very first interaction of me reaching out to schedule a session to me finally receiving the finished photos, Emmy has seriously been THE BEST. She was very attentive to what I was potentially looking for and patient with me in multiple aspects (as it was my first solo shoot of my own accord, I wasn't entirely sure the direction I wanted to take things). Once we came up with some ideas together, it was easy to see that Emmy is soo SO incredibly passionate about bringing the vision to life. From Pinterest boards to brainstorming outfit ideas and multiple concepts, all of it made me feel super reassured and excited for photoshoot day! Her energy is so absolutely infectious, fun to be around and made me so comfortable (especially photographing in public). I'm so appreciative of her amazing and efficient communication, patience, and dedication to creating the best work and experience all around." - Vannessa
