I could not be more excited to get to know you and your story! 

“Once a stranger, now a friend and we are so thankful for her! Emma is such a fun, loving soul and we could not imagine having any other photographer. when we got in the car, we couldn't stop raving about how amazing she is. Having never met her, we just hoped she would be good, but she exceeded our expectations and are in love with our photos. We can't wait to have her photograph our wedding!”

- Klaudija + Zach

“From beginning to end We felt loved, cared for, and taken care of. She exceeded our expectations!!"

“Emma Petersen has gone above and beyond. She cares, she supports and she encourages throughout the entire day. Whatever the day brings, she finds a way to make magic. We are so incredibly grateful that we get to know Emma, she is so special to us and I know that anyone I suggest her photography to will agree with us. Thank you SO MUCH EMMA!” 

- Jacinta + Caleb

“Our day is preserved in a way that looks as wonderful as it felt.”

“Emma’s talent is undeniable but when you hire Emma you get more than beautiful photos to last a lifetime. You’re hiring your hype woman. Your therapist. Your pre-reception DJ. Your confidante. Your friend. Emma is a chameleon. Whatever you need her to be, she seamlessly morphs into, even without you asking or even realizing it yourself. By the time it came for her to leave, I was genuinely sad. Not because I felt like we missed any shots but because her energy was that palpable, I couldn’t picture the celebration without her.”

- Lisa & Nate

"if I had to play the game of “FMK” with our wedding vendors, I would have chosen to marry Emma every single time.”

"There are so many amazing words I can say about Emma! She is a true talent as well as being an amazing human being. She went above and beyond in every way - from our engagement photos and making sure we got to go back to the spot where we got engaged, to pre-picking spots in the forest preserve for the perfect fall photos on our wedding day, to even steaming my wedding dress on the trolley to the Church. On top of all of that, she also takes AMAZING photographs. We are in love with every image & she is incredibly gifted. Please do yourself a favor and book Emma to capture your special event! These are images we will cherish forever."

- Lauren + Donny

"One of the best choices we made for our wedding was working with Emma!"

"Emma is truly a gifted photographer, but she will prove to be so much more than that. She will be your friend, support system, and time-keeper. She'll make you comfortable, she'll keep the excitement going, and she will follow you ANYWHERE to ensure you get your spotlight done right."

- Lauren + Robert

"Emma creates the magic within the memories. She will not disappoint!!!”

"Take it from a fellow wedding photographer -- HIRE EMMA. She is truly such a light in this industry & goes above and beyond to serve her couples. She captures humanity & love so honestly and beautifully unlike anything I've ever seen. She is the real deal & one of the best people I've ever worked with. Our final gallery absolutely blew us away!! Everything was PERFECT!! We cannot recommend Emma enough!!"

- Sarah + Steven

"These are the types of photos we can't wait to show our grandkids someday."
