Hi, I'm Emily.

Here’s one of the many things I love about Corrie: she cheerfully declared that a little rain wasn’t going to ruin her day. And you know the cool thing about her declaration? Shortly after stating that, the rain that was scheduled to pour all day long dissipated and didn’t make an appearance again. It was humid, for sure, but it didn’t rain and we were able to be outside for all of their photos!

Corrie & Jared are such a fun-loving couple. I adored them from the moment I met them (and they gave me cheese-curds at their engagement session; a sure-fire way to my heart is with cheese!) and they have made me laugh from the beginning. They are two very thoughtful and kind people who I’m so happy to call friends now.

They’ve known each other since high school, where she thought he was a jerk and he took that as a challenge to win her heart. Years later, they pledged their love and faithfulness to each other and I couldn’t have been happier to be part of their beautiful day.

Corrie incorporated her mother’s wedding gown into the day by including a piece of lace inside her own dress, wrapping her bouquet in the vintage lace, and having the flower girl’s dress made out of her mother’s gown.

This braided crown was perfect for Corrie and I couldn’t stop photographing it!

Also: her freckles. I have MAJOR freckle envy.

You’d never know this was by the interstate. I had to shoot in between semis passing, but it worked!!!
