Passionate, Dedicated, and SO Talented!
Emily has been a delight to work with from the beginning. She made our engagement photo session fun and really captured the connection between my husband and me. The photos she took for our wedding were nothing short of breathtaking. Her eye and her talent perfectly captured our day, and precisely our entire vision. If you’re looking for a photographer who is attentive, passionate, incredibly communicative, dedicated, and immensely talented, look no further than Emily Bartell.
Emily was amazing! She did such a fantastic job with our wedding. She is so easy to work with and so sweet! She had a very thorough questionnaire for us fill out prior to the wedding to make sure we got everything we wanted. We are so pleased with Emily and her work! Definitely one of the best investments we made for our wedding! I plan on using her in the future for family portraits also.
Let me start by saying my fiance and I are very awkward in front of the camera. We've been together for seven years but have very few nice pictures together. That being said, I was fairly nervous for our engagement session knowing what types of posed pictures I've seen from other sessions online, and thinking about how we would have to be vulnerable like that in front of the camera. Pretty much all my nerves went away within a few minutes of working with Emily. She knew all the right things to say to get us to loosen up a bit and to have fun with the shoot. I really began to look forward to working with Emily and her team even more so as our wedding grew closer. A month out from our wedding, Emily sent us a very detailed questionnaire and we met to go over it in person when I was in town for our final walkthrough. Emily was very accommodating of my schedule given that I was wedding planning from out of town, and only had a few weekend trips to cram everything in. On the day of our wedding Emily and her team were on time, professional, and very organized in terms of timeline. They really made the day flow smoothly and made sure we didn't miss out on any of the specific photos we had indicated in our questionnaire. Emily and her entire team were so kind and really made me feel at ease during the entire day. We received a sneak peek less than a week after our wedding and we are absolutely thrilled with our wedding photos. We are so grateful to have worked with Emily on our big day.
Emily Bartell Photography was recommended to me by a close friend so I knew we were in good hands. I gave Emily my vision for our pictures and she surpassed our expectations. She captured all of the glowy light and special moments better than I could have imagined. Emily's sweet personality, along with her professionalism, made it so easy for my husband and I to be ourselves.
Emily is absolutely incredible at what she does and the photos we received were breathtaking! We hardly noticed her at all the day of and were so surprised to find the number of intimate moments she was able to capture without us even realizing it. We could not be more pleased with our experience with her or our photos!
Emily was the perfect photographer for not only our wedding, but also for engagement photos and bridal portraits. All of the photos were absolutely beautiful, and she captured every memory with exquisite detail. We will definitely book her again in the future!

I have always been a creative, but it wasn’t until my own wedding that I knew I wanted to pursue photography as a career. Throughout the entire process it was obvious how much our photographer enjoyed her work; I was inspired by the way she was able to tell our story in such a meaningful way, while also bringing out the best in us. I fall more in love with what I do every year, and strive to provide my clients with the same type of experience that got me started in the first place.
Aside from being a photographer, I’m a wife and dog mom with a heart for adventure. I'll try almost anything at least once! I love food, fashion, and travel. Nature is my happy place, whether it's hiking in the woods, wine tasting in the mountains, or relaxing on the beach.
If you think we’d be a great fit and are ready to learn more, please send me a message. I’d love to connect and hear your story!
