It all began when I planned and DIY’d my own wedding almost 4 years ago. While other brides may have vowed to never go near a wedding again- I fell in love. Since then, I’ve gained experience in wedding coordination, planning, photography, and even tried my hand at wedding florals! When you book with me, you also get access to my “wedding-swiss-army-knife” experience!
With all of my full service packages (in addition to all of your edited images delivered via a downloadable and shareable online gallery), I include an engagement session (perfect to practice for the big day and get to know each other a little better!), a little “welcome to the SWP fam” gift, a wedding timeline prep consultation meeting (see below), plus a post-wedding keepsake to help you relive the day for years to come! And of course all of my wedding planning experience and vendor recommendations too.
As soon as you're ready! I do start accepting bookings up to a year in advance, so if you're set on your date, reach out ASAP.
Yes I do! In order to secure your date in my books, I require a deposit upon signing of your contract. This is just to make sure that you're just as invested in me + my services as I am in you and your big day!
Heck yes you can! You can either start with the Make It Yours or add on any of my additional services to any full wedding package.
While second shooters aren't required, they are HIGHLY recommended to make sure that the special details are fully noted and the candids plentiful. Having another photographer there to add a different perspective ensures that nothing gets missed during your big day! But don’t worry. If you’re already planning on going with one of my full wedding services package, then a second shooter is already included!
Anywhere you will take my little wandering heart! Local sessions (within 30 miles of Portland) are covered in your package price and anything outside of that can TOTALLY be done for a small mileage + travel fee.
OH YES PLEASE. I love + specialize in small weddings and elopements so if you need me, I'll be there! Need help with plans/vendors/locations? I gotchu for those too.
“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 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.”
"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."
"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!"
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!
“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!”
