I'm Emily, a portrait and wedding photographer in Alexandria, VA!

Hello, beautiful!

I love photographing quirky, adorable couples and weddings all over Virginia, Maryland, Washington, D.C. and even in various spots along the east coast!

Aside from being a photographer, I am also a crazy cat lady, struggling plant mom, and I'm just a little flamingo obsessed. 

I'm so excited you're here, and I can't wait get to know you!

About Me

Once a hopeless romantic, now a blushing bride.

The Emily Nicole Wedding Experience is built around the dreams of the little girl in a white night gown, walking around in her mom's shoes, playing "bride." It's for the girl who held on to the hope of her wedding day through all the high school breakups or the years of waiting for that first date. It's for the bride that is preparing to walk down the aisle to her forever love, one she's hoped for, prayed for, and loved before even knowing his name.

Does this sound like you? Then you would make a perfect ENP Bride!

Testimonials

Emily is a photographer not only because she has a knack for it, but also because she loves it. Even from booking our slot, she wanted to know details about our family, and by the time we met for the shoot, I felt like we were meeting with a dear friend. This made taking pictures an easy going process and made our smooching pictures a little more easy haha. She was careful to explain different poses and was very attentive to any expectations we had. She quickly got our edited photos to us (I am amazed at how fast they came in!) From beginning to end, it has been a wonderful experience, and I highly recommend her.

Emily was fantastic! We hired her for our engagement session and she was incredibly warm, thoughtful, and engaging (no pun intended!). She instantly put us at ease so that we were comfortable throughout the entire shoot. It only took about 45min to get 60 wonderful photos!! Thank you, Emily Nicole Photography!!

Emily has an amazing gift for color, detail, and arrangements. Put together with Emily's planning and coordination skills, not to mention her kindness and thoughtfulness, she is a huge asset to any wedding, gathering, or venue. (She handled all of our wedding photographs with professionalism and a smile.) Anyone planning an event would be lucky to book her.

Emily took our family Christmas photos and was a joy to work with! I was a bit self-conscious at 3 months post-partum, but she put me at ease with her joy, confidence, and patience with our baby. Matt and I LOVE the gallery of pictures she delivered. She went above and beyond to get them to us in record time so we could order Christmas cards! We liked Emily so much that we had to come back for more and did a mini session with her in spring. In those few months between shoots, she had already grown her craft. Emily made our couple poses so effortless, it felt like a date! She was once again such a joy to work with, eager for feedback, and so patient with our little one.

Working with Emily was such a joy! Bringing an infant to a photo shoot can be overwhelming, and our shoot was just the opposite of that! Emily was great at engaging and leading our family in pictures. My son was only 8 weeks old and she was so amazing with him! We can’t wait for our next shoot.
