Getting married can be hella stressful. I know the planning gets overwhelming, but I’ve got you. With over 12 years of experience and skill I put behind the lens, you don’t need to sweat it.

Your Experience

When it comes to our photo sessions, you deserve to look good and feel good. Plus I want you to have fun throughout the process. That’s the trifecta that leaves my clients saying ‘I couldn’t imagine our wedding without her!’

By choosing to work with me, you’re investing in someone that will be by your side to guide you, calm nerves, ease stressors, and crack some terrible jokes to embarrass themselves for your genuine laughs. You get more than stunning photos of your day, you get an advocate with your vision at heart.

Authenticity Over Perfection

the investment

From the first conference call with Emily we knew she was going to be perfect for our day. Emily went out of her way and thought about every last detail. Her and her team were flexible, great at listening and then executing our vision by the end of the night I felt like we made a friend.

Do you find cat hair stuck to the back of people’s sweaters endearing? 

Does your planner guide you and give you the space to be spontaneous? 

Can you jam out to both Frank Sinatra and Billie Eilish?

Does your utopia include exploring the urban jungle and traversing nature all in one day? 

Do you drop lines of
Schitt’s Creek in casual conversation? 

When you reach the peak
of your hike, are you also thinking about the taco truck you’ll stop at on the way home? 

Are you equally in love with the paper-back books on your shelves and your kindle that stays in your work bag?

Do you snap pics of your adventures, but share them later when you’re watching Netflix from the couch? 

Your Memories,
To Have and To Hold

Hard drives crash and photos floating in the cloud have been known to disappear. If that makes your heart skip a beat (and not in a good way) I am with you. That’s why I incorporate albums and prints into every wedding and elopement package. This is not only your photo insurance to preserve your memories no matter what your computer decides to do, but they also act as your heirloom to pass around on a rainy weekend and share with your own growing family. 

i mean that quite literally

That’s What They Said

Emily was an absolute joy to work with from day one, she is                                                                              We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer and will definitely be working with her in the future as well as recommending her to all of our friends & family.

Emily was present and extremely helpful throughout the whole two years leading up to our big day. I don’t know how she did it but she was                                                  without us even having to ask. Just completely                                      and super                                          to shoot with.

I’m Emily Kyle, here for the goosebumps, the gut-busting laughs, happy hour, and golden hour. 

want to find out my mantra?

Charleston, West Virginia and moved to Baltimore, Maryland when I was 11. I landed in Michigan for college. Today, I call Detroit home, but with my family originally hailing from France, my childhood shaped me into an avid traveler with an affinity for people doing and creating cool things in their own way.

i was born in

Life is short and we ought to be out there making the most of it; giving our time to people that matter, experiences that help us grow and work that fulfills us. I’m lucky enough to say I have found that, and I would love to bring that energy to capture your love story.
