She has a passion for bringing people together paired with unique and personal touches is the perfect combination to ensure her client’s special day is one to remember.

Goals for Emily’s Branding Session

When Emily and I chatted prior to her session, she wanted to make sure that her resulting images captured her personality and the many different aspects of her job as an event planner. Like so many of us small business owners, Emily wears many hats in order to execute an event. She coordinates vendors, styles tables, and is the first person called on when a question is needed. Emily’s face needs to be seen on her social media and website to ensure that she has gained her client’s trust from the get go.
