YOUR LOVE IS UNIQUE - YOUR PHOTOS SHOULD BE, TOO.
You deserve wedding photos that truly capture you as a couple - from the stolen glances to shotgunning White Claws, to booty slaps and flirty winks. You deserve a photographer who is passionate as hell about capturing your love in its most authentic form - no matter what that looks like for you.
You're on your way to your engagement session with a triple iced latte in your cupholder. "I Believe In a Thing Called Love" is blaring over your car stereo. You and bae are holding hands, singing at the top of your lungs, attempting to ease the pre-session anxieties.
When you arrive at your session and see my vibin' in my graphic tee, your tensions subside. You exhale your worries and anxieties. Before you know it, we're talking and joking as if we've been BFFs for years. I do my best to make you comfortable, because I know that's when I can capture you at your most authentic self.
Fast forward to your wedding day. You're nervous, but with an "I can't believe I'm marrying my partner today" type of excitement. Within a blink of an eye, the venue lights rise, then you realize you've been smiling for 12 hours and you can't believe your wedding day is already over.
But thankfully, you have beautiful, detailed pictures of all of your moments so you can relive this day for years to come. Photos of your first look, where your gorgeous partner is looking hotter than Mark Sloan. Your wedding ceremony, when you excitedly stumbled through your vows. Photos of your reception, where the wedding party absolutely jammed to Ignition Remix.
I capture all of the little moments and all of the big moments that create an album of one of the best days of your life to relive for years to come.
I've always been a lifelong lover of photography. After a series of corporate restaurant manager positions - doing what everyone told me to do to be 'successful' - I still was unsatisfied with my career. When COVID shut down the restaurant industry, I fed my passion for photography by going through old photos. I f*cking loved it, and I knew this needed to be my career.
In May 2020 I officially launched On the Vine Photography, then quit my corporate position in August 2021 to pursue it full-time. Now I'm able to serve kickass couples and the raddest families by shooting photos that truly reflect their personality and don't feel cheesy.
It's by far the best decision I've made for myself, and I hope you feel my passion each and every time you see your photos.
Your cat adoring, pop punk listening, cold brew drinking, fun loving wedding photographer.

Emily of On The Vine Photography is professional, talented, hard-working, and diligent. She takes the stress and chaos out of family photos and makes it fun. She is flexible and responsive, has a great turnaround time, and edits dozens of photos from each shoot - each one picture perfect.

Emily is a JOY to work with!!! Her personality is awesome, and she is extremely talented! She got all the right shots, and even got down on the dance floor with us! To see someone have so much fun with their profession is very refreshing! I've loved watching her business grow this past year, and I can't recommend her enough!

Emily was our wedding photographer and she was AMAZING! Wedding day, she was right there to help out wherever needed, even brought me water <3 And of course, was running around the whole time setting up the perfect shots. I seriously could not recommend anyone better for your wedding day! Thank you Emily!

Absolutely love Emily!!! I love how our engagement photos turned out and I was so excited to see the wedding photos, and they exceeded my expectations. I love her eye for different details and her work clearly shows that. My absolute favorite thing though was the Polaroid pictures! That was such a good idea and I adore them. 1000/10 would recommend Emily!!

She was absolutely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day! She is incredibly professional (she's great with details, is super responsive, and will always make sure she's not missing anything important or that you may want day-of), and has the best spirit. We're generally not very comfortable or confident in front of the camera, but all of our photos from her are of us laughing and having a good time, and whenever I see them I can't get over how great the photos came out! We still get compliments from our family and friends on how helpful and friendly she was on our wedding day, and we LOVE how she captured us and these wonderful memories!
