I AM: Hi! I’m Emily. I really dislike writing about myself, I never know what to say. So here’s what you need to know:
I’m the owner and photographer, and I like knowing my clients as people. What makes you tick? Who are you? I don’t need to be your BFF, but I want us to know each other well enough that you can trust me, heart and soul, with your wedding day. Trust is important, because I want you to get the best pictures possible.
I’m based in Spokane, WA and I travel all over the world taking photos. My work has been featured across the web on local, national, and international sites. I started my career in photojournalism. Why is that important? It means that I pose you a little for portraits, so you look as amazing as you should on such a special day. During the rest of the day, I’m going to shoot candid, natural photos to tell your story. I shoot mainly digital, but I’m adding in film for 2015. I live in 1902 “farmhouse in the city” with my husband (the accountant) and our cat (the diva). I don’t drink coffee but love tea, and I talk too much when I’m nervous. I love yoga, it helps me be that strong, calm force on your wedding day. I shoot weddings because I’m a hopeless romantic with a passion for good cake.
MY PHILOSOPHY: I believe your wedding is not a fashion shoot. Your wedding is about the two of you getting married. It’s about love and laughter and tears of joy. It’s about friends and family and forever. I shoot weddings for the marriage. For today and tomorrow and 50 years from now. If this sounds like I’d be a good fit for you, I encourage you to click the contact button above, or email me: emily @ emilywenzel.com and we’ll get together to talk about what you’re looking for.
WANT TO KNOW MORE? If I didn’t live in Spokane, I’d move to Germany. I enjoy travel and cooking and renovating my quirky little house. My husband and I met at Gonzaga University. I wholeheartedly support marriage equality. I wish I was a cool as Hermione Granger.
NEXT UP: What are you waiting for? I’m currently booking weddings for 2015 and 2016. And I’d love to hear from you today. <3
