you can call me Emilee

Growing up, I felt the weight of a lot of expectations put on me. There are many things in this world that tell us to give up our passions, do things the “right” way, and fit into predetermined molds. I struggled with the perfectionist culture and conforming to ideals that others considered "success".  My dreams were dismissed as frivolous, my aspirations deemed unrealistic, and my path considered unconventional.

However, I am extremely grateful for the people in my life that advocated for my joy and gave me the courage I needed to do everything I ever aspired to. Now, I’ve built a career helping others do the same. 

There are a lot of people that will tell you what your wedding day should look like and place those expectations on you. I stand firm in the belief that this day belongs to you and your partner alone - your happiness, comfort, passion, and love. I’m here to empower you to plan a day that feels like everything you’ve ever dreamt of. I will advocate for your joy, your priorities, and your unique wedding day, whatever that may look like. 

 I am an advocate for your joy

Growing up, I was someone who said she never wanted to be married. And I meant it, but at the time, I didn’t know why. I didn’t have the family dynamic that would even be functional enough to attend a wedding. I could never imagine it. I figured it wasn't cut out for me.

Later in life, I realized that celebrating your love is for everyone. A wedding day doesn’t have to be about pleasing your family, inviting people who you haven't seen in years, or spending money on an extravagant party. 

It can look however you want. Inviting friends that feel like family, eloping solo, being somewhere that feels healing like in the forest or mountains, or bringing your fur babies. Through my experience, I've grown to absolutely love working with couples and tearing up at every ceremony. 

I used to be a commitment-phobe

What I do to make the dream work


Emilee was beyond fantastic!!!! First, she was always available for us throughout our planning. We had plenty of planning sessions and she was super knowledgeable about the area and what would make a great location. She really went the extra mile to ensure that it is the wedding that my wife and I want. On our wedding day, she was everything we hoped she would be; professional, experienced, present, and genuinely a fun person to spend the day with. She loves her job and it shows through both her attitude and her results.

The photos she took are seriously incredible and we are so grateful for everything she did. Thank you Emilee!

You see a stranger’s puppy & it takes everything in you not to run up & cuddle it.

Your dress gets dirt on it, and you shrug.

You think ice cream & wine is always an acceptable dinner option. Always.

You LIVE for the feeling of sunshine on your skin & wind in your hair.
