About Emily

Hi! I'm Emily, and I love love! I love sharing love, photographing love and helping create unique, unforgettable moments that will last a lifetime. 

My heart and roots are in the Midwest (born + raised a Cardinals fan in StL!), and my soul fell in love with the Colorado Mountains the first time I came out here. The light on the mountains is never the same twice. Cloudy days are my favorite, especially when the clouds sit below the mountain peaks.

I'm a summer girl at heart, but have grown to love all there is to do here in the winter {also: snow! So much snow!!} I've been in Summit for over eight years now, and couldn't ask for a better place to call home! 

Story time is my favorite, whether it's with new friends or hearing my parents' stories for the 100th time. Quality time is my strongest Love Language. I believe in sharing your best moments with the ones who mean most.

Cheers to your next amazing adventure!

My happy place: on a lake. I'm at home on the water - rowing, swimming, sailing, boating, rafting, kayaking, canoeing... even just dipping my feet in for a bit is the best!

We also have a puppy! Her name is Pepper (aka Puppers, Bubbas, Pepper-roo, Pepperoni, Pooper-roo, Ding Dong... the list goes on!) She loves to play with Shai, though I'm afraid the feeling isn't mutual quite yet.

I named my cat Shai (pronounced, "Shay") after the ancient Egyptian god of Fate & Destiny.

I constantly have the "travel bug." Costa Rica was once my home for four months. My most recent international trip: Jamaica. And now we have a honeymoon to plan, so I'm sure we'll find another beautiful location soon...!
