I am an award winning photographer from the United States. Do I have any awards to prove this? No. But I am in my eyes. I've been a photographer for 12 years and counting. I am a preferred vendor in multiple venues around Rhode Island and I've traveled via plane to go to work for the last 6 years. That should count for something! If you're smiling reading this then we're going to probably get along. Over the years I have sacrificed my own happiness to bend over backwards for everyone and help anyone I could. Recently I decided that there is a specific kind of personality that truly can understand the core of who I am. I also understand that not everyone is going to love the crap out of me; like I will love the crap out of you- and that is the start of why I'm unlike anyone you'll meet. Let's dive in.
OKAY. Now that we have the somewhat serious info out of the way. I am glad you are here. Who am I? How did I get into photography? Why don't I live where I am based out of? What inspired me to be a photographer? While all those questions are great; I'll tell you more than that.
I really love people. I love my hammock and value my time spent swinging in between palm trees in St. Pete FL. I love avocado toast specifically from Buddy Brew in Tampa FL. I love my Nana more than anything in this world. She's my absolute favorite Living breathing human being and I can't imagine my life without her, truly. I used to be afraid of dogs but when I met my boyfriend he had a pit bull named Duke who I love so much and basically wiped away all my fears with all dogs. It's pretty remarkable. I recently adopted a PITWEENIE dog - I KNOW... how? Who was on top of who? All good questions, I rescued him so the answers are unclear BUT his name is JOVI... and he's the love of my life. I converted a VAN to live in full time and travel free for love. My address is: Open Road, USA. My mother is my best friend. I come from a big Italian family that is also creative, talented and beautiful. My love for photography has become my entire life. I grew up with club feet and had multiple surgeries to correct them and fix them and it is almost entirely why I'm the warrior I am today. I have a hard time hearing criticism because I've heard it my whole life. I wasn't perfect growing up; I was different than a lot of the kids and I had to overcome obstacles no one around me had to deal with and because of that I think It's hard for me to hear anything other than positive feedback and words of affirmation.. I love the people who support and help others be a better version of themselves. I love yard work, bonfires, hiking, chasing waterfalls and sunsets and I love more than anything connecting with all the people in this world and learning about them. I am scared of needles, anything that can bite me and kill me instantly and death. But life a ride and I'm here for it.

"Emily recently photographed my youngest daughters wedding. Although I’ve only seen a few sneak peeks I must say I’m truly impressed with the results. As a professional wedding photographer myself,with over 35 years experience, I am absolutely thrilled with the shots I’ve seen so far. Emily has a truly unique and fresh approach to her photography. Her creative nature shows in her work. She will crawl on the floor or climb a tree to “get the shot”! If you can get her..hire her immediately! You’ll be glad."

"Emily was simply amazing. She is a professional but felt like a friend at the same time. My wife asked me if Emily could be the one to capture our engagement shoot and wedding day and I’m glad I agreed. Her picture made us both cry tears of joy! Memories to last a lifetime. We can’t wait to see her again for our one year anniversary!"

"Emily was great! She shot both our engagement photos and wedding photos. My husband and I don't love to have our photo taken (who does) but Emily made us feel comfortable and we laughed the entire time. We received our full album (over 1300 photos) less than a week after our wedding! Each photo is beautiful and creative and we are so happy to have worked with Emily"

"Let me just say Emily is AMAZING! This was my fiancé and I’s first photo shoot together and we couldn’t have felt more comfortable. Emily is hilarious and makes you feel so comfortable within seconds of being around her. It’s like you have known her for years. I literally want to make her one of my closest friends already lol! She creates masterpieces with her photos and keeps me wanting to see more. Honestly I would recommend her time and time again. I cannot wait for her to capture our wedding day!"

She had us laughing the whole time all while giving good direction which lead to the most amazing engagement pictures - We will truly cherish our heartfelt photos until we’re old and grey.

"I can't say enough about how wonderful Emily is. We had her take our engagements in 2017 and we were lucky enough to have her shoot our maternity photos this year. She has the most amazing energy and she's always able to make you laugh and feel comfortable... and it really translates in the photos. She is easy to communicate with and extremely professional. I highly recommend!"
