I’m Emily, founder and lead photographer for Beauty of the Soul Studio. I serve Northern Virginia, DC, Maryland and beyond with wedding photography that is bright, bold, and romantic.

I founded Beauty of the Soul Studio to fill the need for wedding photographers who care more about celebrating their client’s milestone moments than about making the day all about their own portfolio. Your priorities are my priorities on your wedding day!

While I am a Catholic wedding photographer, I photograph couples of all different backgrounds, with weddings in a variety of settings. My goal is always to capture the “beauty of the soul” of the person, couple, or wedding day before us.

It is my privilege and blessing to celebrate so many clients’ milestones, and I hope you’ll trust me to capture yours too.

“[Emily] was easy to work and communicate with, and we so appreciated her willingness to jaunt around the city to capture our special moments in special places. She took all the hurried moments in stride and her photos make it look like time was standing still even though it didn't always feel that way.”

Brianne + Kevin

“She was so great to work with, very easy going and fun, made us very comfortable. She was flexible, creative, and had a plan without being too rigid. She's incredibly responsive and she listens and understands what you want to envision as a couple.”

Kristine + Gaeten

"Emily captured such raw emotion on that day that every time I go through the pictures I literally tear up. She has a great eye for these moments…Great lighting, great editing, literally PERFECT.”
