Experience

Reviews from our clients, a brief overview of why we do what we do, and what exactly makes a Fern & Fountain bride.

"More than anything, Emily captured our personalities. I still don’t know how she managed to, but she got everyone perfectly."

"Her communication with me was out of this world. There was never a question left unanswered, and she always strived to make everything perfect for us."

Casey + Ashley

"You can see that our laughs and smiles are genuine and raw. It's exactly what I wanted!"

"Not only was working with Emily a joy but that is exactly what her photos bring us, joy! They are so beautiful and completely capture who my husband and I are as a couple."

Steven + shanelle

"Simply said, you cant do better than Fern & Fountain"

"ATTENTION ALL PEOPLE:
I can't even begin to describe how much we are in love with our engagement photos! They are simply amazing and there are so many to choose from that we are obsessed with. I swear that normally never happens for us. Emily made us feel so confident and relaxed at the same time."

kayla + Jesse

"Emily has such a beautiful way of capturing not just the event but a moment with all of its wonderful emotion and authenticity. "

"Emily's talent, creativity, and compassion blew us away.  As the bride, the whole wedding day felt so surreal and flew by. When I look at our wedding photographs it makes me feel like I am reliving my wedding day over and over again."

HOW IT WORKS

OUR PROCESS

01

the consultation

If you're interested in working with us, set up a consult! This is a bit of a mutual "interview" to determine if we are a good fit. We wish we could take every wedding but we can only take a handful of weddings each yer!

02

booking

After we make you a custom quote to fit your wedding day, we send a contract. Once that's signed, you are booked and we turn down other couples for your date! Woo!

03

PLANNING + organization

After booking, we'll schedule calls and send questionnaires to prepare us both for the wedding day so we can make sure your wildest dreams will come true!

04

ENGAGEMENT SESSION

This comes with a delivery of our style guide and wedding magazine to help you plan and prep for your session, your wedding, and your album!

05

YOUR WEDDING

We'll be there every step of the way with to make sure the moments that matter are captured so you can be in the moment and savor every second, while we work in the background to tell the story of the best day EVER.

the editing

After the wedding, we'll spend dozens upon dozens of hours fine-tuning and handcrafting your images to showcase the joy, beauty, and emotion of your wedding day while we prepare your album.

Frequently asked questions

Do you shoot film or also digital?

Some of both! I mostly shoot digitally as all my digital cameras have dual memory slots to make multiple copies of each image as soon as I take it. I do love working with film as well- the nostalgia and light is unmatched.

Do you have second photographers?

Of course! Sometimes they aren't needed, but they are always available. They are all highly trained and I trust them deeply. Your wedding is not a portfolio-building opportunity so I only work with other highly trained photographers.

Do you have a formal education in photography?

I do! I have a collegiate level certificate as a Master of Wedding Photography, Advanced Luxury Business, and Aesthetic. I started as a self taught entrepreneur but when I began shooting weddings, I knew your wedding day was too important to risk on my trial-and-error, so I invested in my education for you!

DO YOUR TRAVEL Internationally for weddings?

Yes! We've traveled through Western Europe, South America, and out to Hawaii. Some of our favorite places are Ireland, Italy, London, Greece, and Spain. 

Q: What are the communication points after we book with you? I


We regularly schedule phone meetings, questionnaires, and other meetings as-needed before the wedding. After the wedding we schedule design appointments to help you order albums and prints for your home.

Q: Do you want a shot or "must have photos" list?


We are obsessed in capturing the individuality of your love story and your personalities. The whole reason our work is full of emotion is because it's un-posed, un-faked, an un-staged, so we're going to be fully focused YOU, so don't worry about a shot list! We want to craft unique moments, and to do that, we need to tell YOUR best story instead of make a list of other couples' stories to mimic!

Q: Can albums be personalized?


A: Very much so! With paper type, paper edge, cover material, cover color, front cover embossing, a cameo window on the front of the album, and so much more! 


Q: Who are our associate photographers?


Our associates are full time wedding professionals, and friends of ours. We've worked with them extensively and love their work! Every person with a camera at your wedding is fully qualified to do excellent work in every situation.

Q: Do you offer payment plans?

Yes! Ask for more information at your consult so we can make a custom plan for you!
