are you ready for

an epic, love filled adventure?

adventure session investment details

Well now they can be!

An adventure session is a bit different from a regular portrait session. It includes me + my camera + an adventure of your choosing with whoever you choose and photo documentation to preserve the memories!

They cover any distance 150 miles (or more!) from Portland, OR and we can do WHATEVER you want! Hiking to a waterfall, car camping, boating or floating, basically any and all adventures are welcomed.


Adventure Sessions are half day photo adventures that can be anywhere within a 150 mile radius of Portland, OR [or farther with possible travel fee] where we spend an extended amount of time together and capture some really fun memories. Some ideas for locations include: a hike at the beach or a state park, car camping, a cabin in the forest, a family vacation or outing at a beautiful location or airbnb… you get the idea. I also help with planning and logistics for the day to make sure we get some epic shots mixed in with those natural candids that will help you remember the day for years to come.

what exactly

is an adventure session?

These aren’t your typical portrait sessions. 

Do you require a deposit?

For these sessions, I do! It is $100 to secure your date in my books and that also goes towards your balance due on the day of our session together.

I have no clue where to go, I just know I want to go! Do you help with location recommendations?

Yes, of course! Wandering (and exploring by proxy) is in the name! I always have my bucket list and location wishlist at the ready, so just give me a direction or feel you are going for and I’ll handle the rest.

“Emily is an amazing photographer and super pleasant to work with. I really appreciated the quickness of getting our sample photos. Emily was so professional and prepared with snacks and anything else we needed and hadn’t thought of.”

"I've already referred friends to her!"

Alexandra, Bride

“I hired Emily to do my engagement and wedding photos and every step of the way she exceeded my expectations. She was responsive, thorough and very reliable through the entire process. My whole experience with her was seamless (even despite COVID). Emily has an amazing artistic eye with photography and captured my special day beautifully! I would definitely hire her again for other events and hope to work with her again soon.” 

"She exceeded my expectations."

Amanda, Bride

"First off, Emily is amazing. She worked with us and really captured how special and amazing our day was for us. We could not be happier with the pictures she captured. Best of all, she took all the stress away prior to the wedding, and the worry of getting "that one photograph" never really crossed our mind because we knew it would be done honestly ended with too many amazing photos to choose from. We would strongly recommend her to anyone willing to listen."

"She took all the stress away."

Tessa, Bride

"Emily was absolutely amazing!! I am so happy we booked her for our wedding. We had our engagement shoot at Depoe Bay, which Emily was kind enough to suggest based on the vibe I was going for. We were running a bit late and she took that time to scout out the location for us which was awesome! I wanted to add flowers to our shoot and she was super kind enough to create a bouquet for me from SCRATCH and it turned out BEAUTIFUL! It's easy to see how multi talented she is and easy to connect with, I felt like I was just hanging out with a friend taking photos :) I seriously cannot wait for our vow renewal next year and see more of the magic she creates! Thanks again Emily, I will definitely recommend you!"

"She is easy to connect with."

Stephanie, Bride

Emily was the best thing for our wedding season among a COVID pandemic! She was very helpful and flexible with the many changes and added pressures! Emily made us, family, and guests feel at ease and fun and playful with photos. She was very thorough and professional, and came ready with photo ideas and line ups! Not only did she do our photos, but she helped coordinate the whole wedding day. She has been a longtime family friend; and has community and passion as her focus. We love Emily and would recommend her for any major life event photography to capture those special moments:) She not only captured my wedding day, but she also did my moms wedding, my senior portraits, and my older sister's portraits. All of which were very beautiful and detailed photo shoots!

"Emily was the best thing for our wedding."

Kaitlin, Bride

“She sent us the cutest welcome package! My husband and I were so happy with Simply Wandering Photo's services. Emily was communicative, relatable, and fun to work with. She captured all the details of our big day so beautifully! I definitely recommend her services!”


Michelle, Bride
