Winter wonderland is the perfect description for Colin & Allenna’s day. The weekend of the Wright Wedding, a snow storm hit Mid-Michigan, resulting in some stressful travel for some but gorgeous photos for the rest 🙂

I love the color scheme they chose- these deep colors look beautiful with one another.IMG_7775

YOU GUYS, I’m so excited to share some highlights from Victor & Heather’s day! Their wedding was SO BEAUTIFUL.

I met Heather through her sister, Mandy- I had the privilege of being the videographer at her wedding last year. Mandy and her husband Shelby had an awesome bridal party, a lot of entertainment and FUN (including Heather) and so much excitement- I couldn’t have been more excited to be able to work with a crew like them again.

We met early in the day to capture both the men and women getting prepared for the day, my absolute favorite part of the day.

Aside from the gorgeous details…. I love that part, too.

Their ceremony was perfect. I’ve attended and photographed several weddings at Swan Valley Banquet Center and THIS wedding changed how I view the room they were married in. It was done so well, they set everything up perfectly. I can’t get over those giant windows in the background, too!

 
 
 

Do you just love her Wizard of Oz shoes? I LOVE them! They match so perfectly.

[Colton & Courtney]

Okay, I’m going to include two photo shoots here because they’re very connected. Colton & Courtney and I met when my pup, Lyla, was diagnosed with heartworm and I was hosting a fundraiser for her ([Sit. Stay. Smile. – Photos for Lyla]),  you’ll see their baby announcement there. But I just want to highlight them and feature BOTH sessions here!

On to the maternity photos. This session holds a huge place in my heart because it’s the FIRST ONE I had the opportunity to shoot on our new farm. I’ve been dying to take this Christmas tree photo and what can I say, I think we nailed it!IMG_6758IMG_6766IMG_6772

I still can’t believe they took their hands out of their pockets on this seven degree day!IMG_6785IMG_6794IMG_6800IMG_6806

Congratulations, Colton & Courtney! I’m so excited for you and your baby boy!

Friday Photos

[workshop weekend]

I’d love to share some awesome images from the workshop I held this past weekend, but I’ve vowed to only share these within my private BOUDOIR GROUP.
This group consists of lovers of photography & mostly of women gifting intimate images for their fiance’s and husbands. The most common theme is that there are tons of women here who are learning to see themselves in a new way- many who never have felt the way society describes “sexy” and don’t know how to depict it. Many women are seeing themselves in a new, beautiful way- and that’s the entire purpose of this group. Empowering and uplifting women, encouraging them to love themselves NOW and to do something fun with it.
From a post I’d shared in my private group:

“My name is Emily, I have owned and operated EWP for just under 6 years and have specialized in weddings & family sessions. I’m a wife, an assistant project manager, and a step mom.
Many of my clients over the years have asked for boudoir and I shyed away, letting nerves and ‘the unknown’ keep me away.
Until just recently when I turned away my last boudoir seeking bride. I decided to give it a whirl and THEN decide if it was a love/hate thing.
Well. It’s love. Working with women and watching them grow in confidence and come out of their shell is an amazing feeling. In my boudoir sessions, it’s all about you. The angles you love, even the angles you hate. We’ll work together to show off how truly beautiful you really are and will have a work of art at the end. I hosted my first (but definitely not last) Boudoir Workshop on Saturday and had SO MUCH FUN with all my girls. I can’t wait for the next one.”

My best friend, Heather, (from this post) accompanied me on Saturday and worked as my Glam Squad. She prepped everyone with make up and great hair and then sent them on to me. We’re planning Workshops Number 2 and 3 right now!
I’m so excited to see how many people have jumped on board this week. I’m so excited to be receiving messages and to have booked yet ANOTHER session this week- and that she came by referral from one of my Workshop Bombshells.
Bombshells? Why Bombshells? First lets look at what Webster tells us that word means:
Untitled.png
Get it? Is there any other word that fits more perfectly? I’m adorning each of my Workshop gals as #ewpbombshells to find yet another way to compliment these beauties, to give them a title of pride, a word of confidence. My girls ARE bombshells and they don’t need my photo sessions to prove it- but I’m so glad they have them.
All I can tell you is that this weekend was so much fun and the affirmation I’ve received in these past 6 days has been uplifting and entirely unexpected.
When my girls left, here’s some of the comments I heard:
“That was SO FUN”
“I can actually look sexy?”
“I can’t wait to show him these!”
If you’re a lady looking for a group filled with self-love & empowerment, join my group.
If you’re a photographer looking for tips, advice & ideas- shoot me a message, we’ll make this work!
I can’t wait to see this group grow. I’m so excited for what this might bring to my fun little business.

[Will & Jaime Russell]

 
I’ve known the Fish family as long as I can remember. The bride’s little brother, Jason, was in my Kindergarten class and we went to school together until we hit college. Their family is joyful, kind hearted and well intended, and they’re all super funny. I was SO excited when I received a message from Jaime asking to work with her for her big day! I was delighted to get to see this marvelous family again.
IMG_3770
I mean, just look at Jaime’s dad! He’s so proud. His smile was like this NON STOP on her wedding day. You could see how much joy he had that day from miles down the road.
IMG_3773IMG_3775Will greeted me warmly. I’d never met him, nor did I really know what he looked like- I just assumed that the one with the flower was the groom 🙂 He smiled big, he shook my hand and he greeted me kindly. Then we waited.
IMG_3781IMG_3782
Jason is Jaime’s brother. Look at HIS smile. Everyone was so happy to be a part of this day. Both of their families just seemed so full of love, so happy to watch this union happen.IMG_3788IMG_3790IMG_3806
IMG_7856IMG_3817IMG_3828IMG_3853
Can we just take a moment to drool over Jaime’s rings? I mean, gorgeous right?IMG_3865IMG_3868
Still drooling, sorry.IMG_3871IMG_7900IMG_7920

[ Craig & Jackie Rockey ]

Craig and Jackie are a sweet, simple couple who know how to throw an awesome party. They are bat biologists and aren’t nearly as nerdy as that sounds ( 😉 ). They both have giant hearts and even bigger smiles, their ceremony was overwhelming with love and excitement for these two.

The environmental center has a giant pond behind the hall. Beneath it, you’ll find this bubble. During the day time you can go in and observe, but we got in pretty late and the guide warned us that it was a little murky and hard to see through. I still think we nailed these shots, don’t you? IMG_0166IMG_2756IMG_2758IMG_2761
Craig & Jackie provided scrapbook materials for family and friends to help create a photo memory book. Guests took selfies and placed them in the book with plenty of doodles and fun messages at their side.

IMG_0178 IMG_2782

And they had live fish at some of the tables, so that was pretty neatIMG_2789IMG_2797IMG_3051IMG_3173IMG_3220IMG_3635IMG_3654IMG_3681IMG_3684IMG_3687

[Sit. Stay. Smile. – Photos for Lyla]

Here’s a small recap of my busy weekend!
I spent Saturday afternoon at Immerman Park in Saginaw and Sunday in Bridgeport + Frankenmuth capturing all of these great images (and more!)
Click on the photos to view more of their collection.

Courtney + Colton are celebrating their brand new pregnancy and needed some help telling their friends! 20626639_1491412547579003_4262708090332013181_o20689926_1491412620912329_6180156166713920526_o

Susan and Earnest are celebrating their engagement! To be married next year on Mackinaw Island with their closest family and friends. It was so fun to meet this couple!

Heather and mom, Jane participated in a super fun and giggly Mother + Daughter shoot. Heather is a fur mama and dog lover. Momma Jane is excited to be able to soon take photos with her husband of 52 years- I look forward to working with them!20638741_1491442464242678_281273243707808659_n20664042_1491442500909341_5608524675429492892_n

Rian and Eddie are also celebrating their engagement and 2018 September wedding. I cannot wait to be their wedding day photographer. I met Rian my first year in college and she has been one of my greatest friends since then. I’ve only known Eddie for a short while, but I love how happy he seems to make Rian. I can’t wait to see where this life takes the future Dillow’s!

Hannah and her pup, Bear, came to play on Sunday. We met at Frankenmuth’s Wooden Covered Bridge and tried to wait out the storm. The clouds rolled in and we heard thunder crack, so I am grateful that we captured so many great shots of them! Bear was excited to see all of the tourists and he received lots of head pats from passerbys.

Finally, my sweet friend Whitney and her pup, Decker. Decker fears storms and has a hard time in severe weather. Whitney arrived while it was already raining and Hannah & I had already taken cover. Whitney, Decker and I ran for the trees and tried to capture some images before it got too nasty, but there was no letting up. I do love this frame of Whit and her pup. We are planning to have a make up date for this shoot. I’ve known Whitney since early high school and was so happy to see her again!

A serious thank you to each of you who participated in Sit. Stay. Smile. YOU are saving my pup. This weekend we raised almost $400!!! The first appointment for Lyla’s treatment was just over $500, so needless to say that’s AMAZING! My family is so grateful.

I hope that you’ll consider using us for future photo opportunities down the road. EWP offers Engagement | Wedding | Family | Milestone | Event | Headshots and more!

Q&A

blue-swirl-hi

1. How would you describe your photography style?
I have a photojournalistic style of shooting and a classic look. This means that I will follow you throughout your big day to capture all of the little details that you worked endlessly to perfect. It allows me to capture the small moments, the personal ad intimate glances, as well as the most exciting, dramatic parts of the day! I strive to capture a timeless look, so that you and your new spouse will be able to treasure your collection for years to come. I was taught on film and combine that knowledge with the ways that I have learned digital photography over the years, to ensure that you receive the best memories from your day.

2. Can I see the proofs for a full wedding you have shot? 
Certainly! Check out www.ewp.pixieset.com and login to the client area to view my most recent collections.

3. What kinds of photo edits/post-production work do you include as part of your service?
The images in my portfolio and on my website will give you a good idea of what our editing looks like.

4. How long after the wedding can I expect to see my proofs?
Your entire gallery is guaranteed to be delivered in 6 weeks or less, post wedding. I strive to deliver my images promptly, since I know how excited you will be to see your day in review! I try my hardest to post sneak peaks via social media within 72 hours.

5. Could you explain exactly what is included in your package(s), and can we customize one to fit our needs?
Of course! Each one of my packages is custom built to meet your needs. Each package is based on hours of coverage + location, so we will work together to find what is best for your special day.

6. How much would it be for additional hours of coverage if things run late or if our plans change?
I charge $125/hour for additional hours of coverage.

8. Do your packages include a second photographer?
A second photographer can be added for $100/hour.

9. Can I see a contract?
Yes! I’ll be happy to show you what my standard contract looks like, and you will be able to thoroughly review your own specific contract before you sign or pay.

10. What is your policy if you become injured or ill and can’t photograph the wedding?
There are two possibilities in this situation, both of which are explained in my contract. The first is that I will make every effort to find a suitable replacement. I have a wide acquaintance with the talented and dedicated photography community in my area, and I am confident that I could find a replacement who would do an excellent job. The second option is: if you don’t wish me to find a replacement, I will refund your payment so that you can make alternate arrangements.
