i'm emily, the redheaded photographer

I am the super detail oriented, lovingly direct and hands on red headed photographer.  It's kind of like hanging out with your goofy, laid back friend who gets things done timely and happens to carry around a camera documenting it all. And yes there are such things as laid back red heads. ha! I joke quite often that I'm tall, loud & red headed, people listen during family formals. 

What you see is what you get with me. My friends will tell you I’m honest, approachable, fun loving and a tad dorky (they were being nice on that one). With me you can be yourself 1000% and that's most important. I know these photos will stir up lots of great emotions over the years, so let's make sure it's done right!

"I was a bride that thought she never cared about pictures. But Emily was the perfect amount of EVERYTHING. She made me feel comfortable and pushed my (now) husband and me to step a little outside of our box. I am so so so happy that she did! I will love these photos for the rest of my life. She captured who we are and what we wanted perfectly. She was flexible about group photos - I have so many friends that came in from out of town and she gave us wonderful group shots outside of your typical wedding photos. She made our day so amazing. She was exactly what we needed and approached the day in the way that was just US. Thank you thank you thank you, Emily!" - Nic

"I do not consider myself photogenic and I certainly don't feel comfortable in front of a camera. THANK GOODNESS for EMILY STEELE Photography! Your wedding should be captured, and you should enjoy those memories for years to come and I will 100% be able to do that thanks to Emily. She instantly put me and my husband at ease during our engagement photo shoot which lead to a fun relaxing and wonderful time during our wedding as well. She was able to capture our love for each other in an authentic, classic and honest way. She was super organized during the wedding and accomplished everything we wanted and then some in the allotted time. The second photographer we requested was amazing, they were a fantastic team. I will forever be grateful for Emily, she has captured what will be one of the best days of my life and she did it beautifully." - Katie

"Emily was absolutely amazing! Right off the bat, I was so impressed with her organization, energy and enthusiasm. She contacted me several times before the wedding to make sure she had all the details of the day and what we expected. Our religious wedding had some photography restrictions, and she took those restrictions and made our day perfect! The photos were exactly what I was hoping for. Perfect quality, and every time I look back at them, I really remember our wedding fondly. She captured the feel of our wedding perfectly. I would highly recommend Emily to anyone! In fact, we hope to use her again the in future for other photography needs! Thank you!!" - Melanie

"Love, Love, Love Emily and Amy! They were professional, helpful and fun. Made being in front of the camera an easy experience. She tells you exactly what you need to do in order to get a great photo. Emily followed my large shot list completely. Have so many beautiful photos to choose from. Excited to be able to look back on photos that captured every moment of our big day."- Maggie
