Natalie & Sam // Discovery Park Seattle Engagement Photographer

How’s your Monday going? I’m trying to plow through my to-do list and dirty laundry pile, because this month has been all kinds of craziness with travel. I’m out of town almost half of this month! Next month calms down, but I’m pretty sure it’ll be a few months before I get a weekend “off” again. When I’m in town, I’m working to get ready for wedding season and spring. It’s coming!

I’m so glad I got to go to Seattle last weekend to meet up with Sam & Natalie for their engagement session. The weekend went something like this: sun, rain, sun, drizzle, sun, pouring down rain, drizzle while sunny, rain, mist, and more sun. I love Seattle, but this time of year drives me crazy because I want to be done wearing boots, but the rain soaks all my other shoes. We managed to escape the worst of the rain on Saturday by hanging out in Ballard at one of their favorite bars, and ducking out to take photos in Ballard during less stormy moments. I’ve mentioned before how much I love Ballard, and I was so excited to shoot there and at Discovery Park this last weekend. It’s been a long time since I’ve been to Discovery Park (I really can’t remember when I was there last) and I realized that there are house. In the park! And if I was still living in Seattle, you can bet that’d be my dream spot to live. It’d be like living in the forest in the middle of the city!

Stay tuned for more in the next couple weeks! And later this summer when Natalie & Sam get married in Mazama. :)

One Frame — Downtown Spokane Photography

Downtown Spokane Senior Photography // Emily Wenzel Photography

A couple weeks ago, I met up with a few photographer friends and Mariah here, and we took photos in downtown Spokane. Like the dork I am, I took a bunch of film photos, but this was the only digital frame. I can’t wait to get the film developed!

This week, I wrote a post for Apple Brides with some more Tips for Clients. I wrote another piece to explain what those pesky photography terms mean. You can see it here.

Have a great weekend!

WANTED: 2015 Photography Internship

Now Open: 2015 Photography Internship

This year, for the first time, I’ve decided to bring on an intern for the summer. This internship will be for the 2015 summer season (May-October), and you’ll be working alongside me at my weddings, learning about wedding photography and how to run a small business.

You Are:

1. Someone who wants to learn. You can be new(er) to photography, but I want someone who has a passion for photography and handle a blunt critique of your work. You should have a DSLR camera and be able to use it on manual. [This is negotiable.]

2. Available May-October, with a 5-15 hour/week commitment. Usually there will be a wedding on Saturday, along with a weekday meeting. Some weeks may be more, some may be less.

3. Cat loving. We’ll often be working from my home office, where my cat assumes that she’s the real boss.

4. Professional, personable, and well spoken. You will be coming to weddings with me and representing Emily Wenzel Photography.

5. PC literate and Adobe savvy.

+ Bonus points: you like Taylor Swift or Imagine Dragons, you’re a fan of yoga, and/or you love chocolate.

The internship is:

1. On Location. You’ll come to me at weddings, assisting (holding gear, making babies smile, etc) and occasionally shooting.

2. In office. We’ll talk about workflow, marketing, post-processing, and I’ll do my best to answer your questions.

3. Practical. You’ll be shooting at weddings, engagement sessions, and occasionally with me. You’ll also be in front of the camera.

4. Educational. After each wedding, we’ll sit down and go over some of your images to improve your shooting.

5. Payment is DOE. This is most likely going to be an unpaid internship. However, there may be some pay for shooting, TBD based on your abilities.


To apply, send me an email with a link to your portfolio & a resume. I’ll be considering applications through the end of April.  –> emily@emilywenzel.com

What if I don’t live in Spokane?

The location is a bit negotiable, but you’ll need to be able to travel to Spokane for weddings and coaching.

Can I get college credit?

If that’s something you’re interested in, we’ll work with your school to see what we can work out.

How do I send you my portfolio?

If you don’t have a portfolio already hosted online, I suggest putting together 10-15 of your best images in a dropbox folder and sending me the link to that.

Have a great day!
