Allow the Awesome To Unfold.



Hi. I'm Emily. 

I'm a photographer, supporter, runner, social justice advocate and teacher.

I live in Michigan. I travel worldwide for my work. 

I work exceptionally hard for you so you don't have to worry about anything on your wedding day.

I have strong opinions, I have a lot of passions and I let those guide me.

I greatly enjoy Pat Conroy, The West Wing, tacos, Lake Michigan, rescue dogs, my vintage Airstream, running and summertime.

I believe that wedding photography should be true to you and your love story. 

I do not stage Pinterest photos. 

I am a strong advocate for LGBTQ partnerships.



Grand Rapids, Michigan

Leelanau County, Michigan

I offer 1 Wedding package and 1 Elopement package. Both are customizable for your needs.  If you want to add additional options such as travel, additional hours, prints, or albums, just let me know. I promise I will never upsell you or oversell you.

Drop me a note!

I am currently accepting bookings for 2017 weddings & elopements.

The I Am Syn Project will begin booking in early December.

I can't wait to hear from you.

Hi! Thanks SO much for contacting me. I am excited we might have a chance to work together. I get a lot of inquiries and I work really hard to ensure that I take clients who align to my beliefs and style. If you can be as detailed as possible in your form, it's much more likely we can determine quickly if we are a great fit. I do not reply to simple "Are you available on ________ day?" inquiries. Details matter! Thank you!
