HELP HAS ARRIVED 

GET READY FOR 

A HECK YEAH,
ALL-IN KIND OF DAY

Hey, I’m Emett, your Seattle, Washington wedding and elopement photographer and hype man. Since I'm not going to waste your time with my favorite coffee or any of that crap, I thought I’d drop the #1 truth bomb that resonates with my couples: Life’s too short to hold ourselves back from the stuff that makes us feel truly alive. That makes choosing to do only your favorite things on your wedding day pretty dang important if you ask me.

Whether you’re looking for an elopement off the beaten path or a wedding that feels true to you as a couple — I’m here to help you have the best day of your life, while telling your story through powerful imagery. So you can look back on the day you got married the way you’re supposed to: like it was the most epic experience ever.

FOR THE MADLY IN LOVE

Melissa & James

"Working with Emett is more then working with a photographer, it’s like working with your friend who is there to help you every step of the way. He really goes above and beyond to make everything perfect and seamless. Every time we talked to Emett about our plans, we were left excited, encouraged and productive. He has such a creative eye and makes every moment he captures beautiful. When we got our engagment and wedding photos back, my face literally hurt from smiling and going through them over and over."

"Working with Emett is literally a dream... I could not ever in a million years ask for a better wedding photographer."

Reyna & Froy

"I would 1000% recommend Emett. He is not only a phenomenal photographer, but a genuinely kind person. From the first point of contact we knew he was the right fit for us by how personable he was. He is so down-to-earth, professional, helpful and makes the whole experience fun and exciting. He's up for any adventure and the sky is the limit when it comes to his skills.  Our wedding day was filled with so much joy and laughter. I had only dreamed that our photos would reflect these moments. He captured the day beautifully and we will cherish our wonderful photos for a lifetime. If you're looking for an amazing photographer, he is your guy."

"The attentiveness he pays to every detail is impressive and he puts his whole heart and effort into his art." 

Lindsay & Will

"From the very start of our communications, to the event itself, and everything that followed, Emett has been so incredibly wonderful to work with! He made planning the day so incredibly easy... When the day finally came for our elopement, We were laughing and having the best time! He made us feel so relaxed and when it was time for us to say our vows, we basically forgot he was there, but he captured our emotions and everything so perfectly!"

"Emett was incredibly fun to work with and made the day go so smoothly!"

 LET’S MAKE SOME MAGIC

Whether you choose a luxurious wedding in the heart of a vineyard, or an adventure elopement deep in the rainforest, I vow to give you the very best of my craft. Every single moment of our journey together is custom created for you two, and documented to bring out the best in your love story.
