I capture love of all kinds in the Pacific Northwest, and wherever in the world those stories take me. I’m equal parts adventurer and homebody, my dream is to own a flower farm in the San Juan Islands, and yes, my last name really is Studley. Let’s grab a beer sometime?
"I found Emma via Instagram and from our very first exchange I was met with kindness, enthusiasm, and quick responses. My hubby-to-be and I met Emma for a drink to meet, feel each other out and talk specifics. It felt like sitting with a friend just catching up. I knew we were in good hands.
The day of our elopement was only the second time meeting with Emma in person yet again I felt like I had one of my best buds helping me throughout the day. We felt so comfortable with Emma, our guests loved her, and now we have the sweetest, most genuine moments captured for the rest of our lives. My only regret was Arash (hubby) and I not getting a photo with Emma! We love Emma, she is so Studley!!"
In my work and life, I truly believe that collaborating with others works best when our values align.
Myself and my business firmly stand by values. Some of those being that Love is Love, Black lives matter, there is not room for sexism in marriage, and COVID is a real thing that we need to be mindful of in our event planning.
If you feel like the culture of your celebration or attitude of those in attendances may not reflect those values, I kindly ask that you inquire with another photographer. The wedding industry needs to grow in all of those areas, and those are not issues I am willing to glamorize through my lens.
