Yay! You’re engaged! Congratulations on this wonderful milestone!

I’m sure you haven’t stopped smiling since the question was popped! But now it is time for the planning process, which can be both exciting and stressful at the same time! Don’t worry! I am here to help make it even more exciting and less stressful!

Each collection includes an engagement session because we believe engagement sessions allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera while getting to know us! They also include an online gallery of high-resolution pictures for you to share with your family and friends!

Maternity, Newborn, and Family Sessions

From engagement to family, and everything in between, I am here to capture all those beautiful milestones!

I love capturing families in a lifestyle manner, while they smile, laugh, and love on one another! It comes as no surprise that kids grow, but what is surprising is just how quickly they grow! Seriously, it seems to happen in the blink of an eye! And I'm just the photographer, so I can't even imagine how fast it is for the parents!

By booking a family session, you will have frozen memories of when you are pregnant, those first couple of weeks with your new baby, as well as your beautiful family smiling, laughing, and loving on one another!

Each collection includes an online gallery of high-resolution pictures for you to share with your family and friends!


"I am so glad that I chose Emily Marie Photography for my wedding! Emily is cheerful, organized, responsive, fun to be around and made me feel so comfortable in front of her camera. We met numerous times to walk through the wedding timeline (which she took the time to draft and then I made tweaks) and desired shots. On the day of our wedding, Emily and Greg captured everything we could've asked for BEAUTIFULLY while being helpful to our day-of coordinator and checking in on my husband and I. Greg always had a water bottle handy for us and our flowergirldog in the hot weather. Emily bustled my dress for me while guests were finishing dinner. They kept us on track and snuck us out of dancing for quick sunset pictures which turned out stunningly. Emily sent a sneak peek of wedding photos four days after the wedding, and we got the full gallery of gorgeous images while we were on our honeymoon less than a month after the wedding! I couldn't be more thrilled with the images and the surprisingly speedy timeline, which made ordering photo thank you notes so easy. As a calligrapher, I've already been lucky enough to work with Emily again at a styled shoot, and look forward to continue to working with her, hopefully for a lifestyle puppy session soon."


"Best decision ever (apart from marrying my husband!) was having Emily take our wedding photos. We weren't sure whether to hire a professional because of our small budget but hands down we are so glad we did and that we chose Emily. Now that we have the photos back, well, we are so utterly thrilled that we chose her! Her photos are just beautiful. I love her style and how she uses depth of field and an individual color profile to make her photos stylish and unique, but also genuine. She was so friendly, accommodating and professional, and on the day she helped keep things on track when I got stressed and short on time. She worked with us throughout the planning process and delivered photos quickly afterward. Our family is thrilled. Each and every photo is something that we will cherish and she captured the day perfectly. She worked with Greg as a second shooter and they were both fantastic and soldiered on despite the heat wave (July heatwave!) and noseeums. I was very busy up until the wedding and she helped a lot with planning and what photos to have etc. Thank you so much for the stunning photos <3 If you are reading this, hire her!! She's awesome!"

"Emily is professional but fun, flexible and receptive to any and all ideas - I definitely recommend you book her!!!"

"I could not have had a better experience with Emily and Greg. They were exceptional. First off, our photo's turned out great. They did a wonderful job of getting us through the pictures quickly so that we could enjoy our day. Every moment you'd want to have documented will be. And I'm not sure how many camera's they had, but it must have been at least 7. Lastly, they are affordable, especially compared to other vendors around here. And the affordability has absolutely no relation to the quality. We should have paid twice what we did for the results we got. Sign these guys up before they get booked by someone else for your date."


"I'm not sure where to even start with Emily and Greg because there is so much to say! My husband and I had the MOST AMAZING experience having them as our photographers. My husband actually grew up with Greg, so we knew right away who we wanted to capture our wedding. We not only wanted them as our photographers because we knew them, but because Emily HANDS DOWN takes the most stunning pictures I have ever seen! She has the best eye to capture such awesome pictures in any setting. When we were taking our engagement pictures and wedding pictures, they made us feel so comfortable and made the experience so much more fun. I can't express my happieness and gratitude enough for having them there to capture such a huge life event for us! We will be having them capture all of our future life events that's for sure! If you are looking for professional photographer who is amazing at what they do, look no further! Emily Marie Photograpgher (Emily & Greg) ARE THE BEST! :)"

-Hannah and Chad

"So glad we found Emily and Greg! We were looking for a couple photographers that we could afford to capture the important photos before the ceremony as well as the big moments for the reception. We found Emily just as she was going out on her own and her rates were very reasonable! Neither of us are big on getting our pictures taken so we didn't quite know what to expect. We felt very comfortable with her. Our pictures turned out beautifully. and She is very responsive to emails and quite helpful. We are looking forward to working with her on our wedding day!"

-Kallie and Ryan

"Emily was my wedding and engagement photographer in 2016. Her and her second photographer, Greg, were amazing people to work with. She is also reasonably priced for photographers in the Northern / Central Virginia area. Upon meeting Emily the first time, my fiance and I knew that she was the photographer for us. She has a passion for photography and getting to know her clients. Not only did she make my fiance and I feel very comfortable during both photoshoots, she also asked for shot ideas that we wanted. Emily was extremely professional and even came to a final walk-through at our venue a month prior to our wedding. She had all documents ready for the day of the wedding and showed up early to help out. Emily and Greg were more than just photographers the day of our wedding. They had the interests of myself, my fiance, and my wedding party in mind, always making sure we had enough water and that we were okay. She kept us organized and calm through out the day as well. She even sent us more than just a sneak peek the week after the wedding, but about 15 highlight photographs as well. She was on schedule, according to contract and what was spoken in person, in sending us both our engagement and wedding photographs. I HIGHLY suggest using Emily Marie Photography."

-Sarah and John

"She was simply the best, she and her partner got amazing shots, both what I had asked for and little bits of the wedding that I hadn't even noticed happen. She was helpful in answering all my questions, helping out with some last minute decisions, and really making my day special and less stressful, she even helped button up my dress for the rehearsal!"

-Melinda and Wayne

"My husband and I are very pleased with our wedding photos! She made us feel very comfortable and was able to capture each special moment on our day. I love candid photography and that's what we got with her. We got and engagement session, 8 hours of coverage on the day of our wedding, as well as a second photographer. We were able to view and share all of our photos on an online album. I feel like her prices were very reasonable for all that we got. Emily was so easy to work with and was so sweet. My wedding party all loved her! I would definitely recommend her services for someone looking for a wedding photographer."

-Diana and Hunter

"Emily along with her second shooter Greg were AWESOME! They are so easy to talk to and be around. They made us feel like we have known them forever. I couldn't have asked for a better team of photographers. I am definitely recommending them to my sisters that should be getting married soon."

-Mindy and Kyle

"Emily and Greg met, and exceeded, our expectations for photography at our wedding. Not only were they easy and pleasant to deal with, they captured absolutely amazing pictures of our special day. They are the best, hands down!!"

-Shannon + Christopher

"Emily was AMAZING. Her partner Greg was also superb. They really understood what we were going for! They got excited about all our special requests, plus they had great ideas and experience of their own that beyond exceeded our expectations. She has a great eye for light and framing. Our photos are spectacular."
