Blog - Emett Joseph Photography

Hey, my name is Emett & there's nothing I value more than the stories of my couples; my career, passion, and intent are a lot bigger than pretty pictures. Wedding photography goes beyond what I see through my lens, it comes from my heart. It's hope, faith, and commitment -  regardless of life's trials and tribulations. It's a starry-eyed look into the future with a vision in your mind of the life you want to create with your partner. This is my dream job, and I truly want to give every couple an experience that goes beyond their wildest dreams.

These photos and stories are merely a representation of that.
