Hi, I'm Emily Johanson
Photographer & floral artist
I'm The Photo & Flower Girl - I do photography AND floral design :-D
I believe taking photos should be fun – I’ll make sure of it!
I'm a photographer but, I promise to never ask you to smile or "say cheese"
That’s not how I roll 😉
Instead, I create an exciting, happy, and relaxed environment where you can feel comfortable showing real emotions and joy.
No more forced smiles and stiff posing.
Any photo shoot with me will be filled with lots of laughter, jokes, and active movement.
You’ve never had an experience quite like this before.
You won’t believe how easy it is to work with me 😊
Emily was incredible. We felt so comfortable doing our photos. We did a first look and we were never told to hold still or pose. We were always moving and interacting which made us open up. She made us laugh and feel as though we'd known her for years. Our wedding was really unique and she didn't miss a beat capturing it. Plus her flowers were spot on for the vision I had.

What makes me
You will notice very quickly that I truly LOVE what I do. Weddings are 100% MY ELEMENT and I'm seriously so happy I found something I love THIS much.
I'm a firm believer in the idea that if I get to know my couples on a more personal level, they will feel more comfortable showing true emotions around me... which will then result in WAY better photos. Can't go wrong with that!
I'm not the type of photographer who will just show up at your wedding barely knowing your name or what you want to get out of your wedding day.
With me, we talk many times during the process so I can get to know you along the way. I learn about your vision (this is also where flowers comes in!), the feelings you want to feel on your wedding day, and how you interact as a couple. I want to know your love story so that I can more accurately photograph those epic moments at your wedding.
I know the right times to instruct you on what to do (how to hold things, how to achieve the most flattering angles etc.) and I also know the right times to hush and let you have a moment together. Both are important in my eyes.
I want to hear from you!
"I am obsessed with my photos!!! Where do I start?! Well first off, you can tell that Emily truly loves what she does. She made the whole process SO easy!
I was scared that my dress was not going to flatter me. But, [the photos] came out gorgeous! I felt beautiful on my wedding day, and I truly believe she captured how me and my husband felt about each other perfectly. Her style is bright, romantic, and whimsical. If you're getting married, PLEASE book your wedding with Emily. You will not regret it! She also does floral arrangements, as well!"
"Emily was very sweet and made me feel so comfortable in the photos (knowing me I'm awkward) so that worked out great! She was patient, and did not rush. she actually seemed happy to be there.
She made us laugh and the photos turned out natural and so beautiful. I recommend Emily if you're looking for a photographer that cares." 🙂
