MARRIAGE IS BEAUTIFUL

2017 & 2018 Wedding Photography Collections

 
 

Hi, I'm Emma Rose!

I think that marriage is beautiful.  I've been married since 2013 and my marriage is the greatest relationship that I'll have in my entire life.

I'm a huge fan of country music, road trips, adventures outside, traveling, a hoppy IPA, the West Coast, agriculture, apple products, experiencing new cultures, dance parties with my family in the kitchen and photography.

As a wife, I firmly believe in marriage and I do my best to capture all that it means through my photography on your wedding day.  A marriage is SO much more than just one day, but your wedding day is an incredible time for you, your friends, and your family to celebrate the beginning of a new legacy.

TRUST ME

Ultimately, I want you to love your photos.

I don't expect everyone to connect with my work.

I don't approach the same way as other photographers out there.  What it really comes down to for me is TRUST.  To do my best work and for you to get the best photographs possible, you're going to need to be on board with how your photographer does things and the photographic style that they produce.  If you aren't in love with the photographs you're seeing from me, no problem.

Just make sure you find a photographer whose work speaks to you and that you feel you can fully trust to deliver the kind of images you're dreaming of.  I really want you to love your wedding photos, regardless if I'm the one to take them or not.

WHAT TO EXPECT

If you’ve followed my work on social media, you will see a lot of details and up close portraits. That being said though, those photographs are only a small percentage of what you should expect to see in your wedding photographs, so please make sure you look through full wedding posts on my site as well as a few full galleries of photographs from past weddings to get a good feel as to what to expect in your wedding day coverage.  I know that photography is one of the most important things to consider when planning your wedding and I love that responsibility.

ELOPEMENTS & INTIMATE WEDDINGS

I've had the incredible honor as a photographer of witnessing and photographing amazing elopements and intimate weddings.  Stripping down a wedding to it's core elements can be a very refreshing idea for those who don't feel a full wedding really represents what they're looking for in a ceremony.

For me, I've made a distinction between true elopements of just two people and a couple of witnesses and a very small wedding where a handful of family and friends are present.  This price difference accounts for the additional work of coordinating extra people and the few extra brief formal portraits that would obviously be important to have documented.

To qualify for these packages, the ceremony needs to happen on a Monday-Thursday. If you're set on a weekend date for your elopement or intimate wedding, that's totally fine, you'll just need to refer to the Wedding Packages options.

Local pricing refers to ceremonies within an hour of Seattle, WA and/or Portland, OR. Travel fees may apply beyond that for in state ceremonies. Ceremonies that need an overnight stay will most likely require the booking of the travel destination. Please let me know if you have any questions about this.

PORTRAITS

A portrait session is a wonderful way for us to connect and explore a little while making some photographs. My portrait sessions are up to 60-90 minutes long and typically take place somewhere between Portland and Seattle (I live smack in the middle of the two big cities!).  If you want to explore beyond that there might be a small travel fee for the extra time. Having laid back photos in non-wedding attire is always great to have in addition to your wedding collection. 

Portrait Sessions are $575 (Family, Seniors, Engagements and Maternity)

frequently asked questions

HOW DO I BOOK?

To reserve your date, I simply need a signed contract and 50% of package price non-refundable retainer. If your wedding requires travel, I will also need the expenses paid at the time of booking to ensure travel costs are as quoted. Unfortunately I cannot hold any dates without the signed contract, retainer, and any travel fees.

WHERE ARE YOU BASED?

I currently reside in South Bend, WA, USA with my amazing husband Shaun and our daughter Riley. I've always called the Pacific Northwest my home and love everything about this area.

DO YOU BRING A SECOND SHOOTER?

All but one of my package come with two photographers.  Having a second photographer is a great way to get additional coverage on your wedding day, especially if logistics dictate photographs being needed at two places at once. A second photographer is also a great asset in helping document extra detail photos and can help focus on moments from the perspective of family members and friends.

CAN I SEE A FULL GALLERY OF A WEDDING?

YES YES YES. What I show on my social media and website isn't always a full representation of an entire wedding day. I'd love nothing more for you to look through a few full galleries of weddings that I've delivered to clients recently. Having a really good idea of what your photographs will look like from an entire wedding day is incredibly important. You can view my full galleries here.

WHO HAS COPYRIGHT?

While I'll retain the copyright of the images from your wedding day, my contract gives personal print and media permissions to my clients for any non-commercial usage. If you have any concerns about privacy, please let me know.

CAN YOU MEET BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY?

Establishing a great connection with my clients is paramount to being able to capture amazing photographs, so having some sort of contact beyond email is a prerequisite before booking me as your photographer. I want to make sure you're 100% confident that I'm the right photographer for you and that you'll feel comfortable having me around on such a monumental day in your life.

HOW AND WHEN DO WE BOOK OUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION?

I believe in the importance of an engagement session with all of my couples!  It is a great way for us to get to know each other before the big day and for you to get comfortable with how I work and what to expect come your wedding day!  Because my weekends are full most of the time, I schedule all my engagement sessions during the week and about 6 months prior to your wedding day.

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?

Absolutely. Travel is one of my passions and allows me to experience new places and cultures that I wouldn't be able to otherwise. 

WHAT DO YOU REQUIRE FOR TRAVEL?

I do charge a travel fee of $500 for interstate weddings and $1000 for international weddings in addition to the actual expenses for time spent away from my family and as a buffer for any unexpected expenses that might come up. For travel on the American West Coast, I require two nights accommodation in addition to transportation. For the East Coast, I require three nights, and four nights for international weddings/elopements.
