the lens


Hey there! I’m Emily, and I’m a wedding photographer! When I’m not behind my camera, you can find me grabbing a large Diet Coke from McDonalds, driving my 4 kids to their various activities (in my super awesome minivan!), on date night with my husband, or in my sweats catching up on my favorite TV shows. Being a wife and mom is my main gig, but being a wedding photographer allows my creativity and entrepreneur heart to fly free! 


I photograph couples who are crazy about each other and ready for the best adventure yet— marriage. Being in love is magical, and I am lucky enough to freeze it in time with bright, airy, clean images that are full of light. To me, light is happiness. And capturing light, love and joy between two people, is my super power!

As a wedding photographer, I’ve been featured on super cool wedding blogs like, Glittery Bride, Pure Wow, Zola, Cake and Lace and Brides & Weddings. You can also see what other couples have to say about me on The Knot! 


I'm a wife to the best husband out there (and totally ok with how completely cheesy and cliche that sounds!), a mom to 4 kids (who drive me absolutely insane on a daily basis, but then melt my heart all at the same time), and a photographer.

The voice inside my head has a southern accent. I technically "grew up" in the south, but that was like 17 years ago, and my actual southern accent is long gone. But I find it trying to sneak out when I'm blogging, and I have to shut it down, because you can only say ya'll when you're legit southern.

In college, I thought I wanted to be an elementary school teacher. When I started having my own kids, I quickly realized there ain't no way I could cut it. Teachers are saints, I am not.

I have a deep love for Chick-Fil-A. Like I could eat it multiple times a week and not get sick of it. Not that I’ve ever done that before. And the Chick-Fil-A workers definitely don’t know be by name.I have an equally deep love for McDonald’s Diet Coke. It’s just the best. Period.

I love food, but hate to cook. Unless it’s baking. Because baking equals treats or bread. Both of which are very important to me. 

I played basketball in High School, and still have nightmares that I show up to practice without my shoes. Which would have pretty much been the worst thing ever.

I’m the oldest of 5, and totally own that role. Which basically means I’m extra bossy. And very slightly opinionated.

The beach is my happy place, but I live smack dab in the middle of the country. 

Country music is my jam. I know every word of every Tim McGraw song. And my list of favorite country music artists is way too long. I love them all.   



Emily was perfect! From the very beginning she was very easy to talk to and get in touch with. She is extremely organized and answered questions I didn't even know to ask. Our pictures turned out beautifully and we had so much fun taking them. She kept our wedding going smoothly and we were even ahead of schedule for the entire evening! Emily is so personable and every single one of our wedding party members and family loved her. I can not say enough good things about her and the pictures she takes.

Emily made our wedding day so special. She is incredibly talented and made us, and our guests feel comfortable and excited. I was blown away by the quality of pictures we received. Not only did she take pictures to last us a lifetime, but I heard from so many of our guests how grateful they were to have some sweet pictures of themselves from our day. She caught the emotion perfectly and even wrote an extremely heartfelt blog post. I cannot recommend Emily Broadbent Photography enough!

Emily was (is) AMAZING. Seriously...She offered a helping hand in everything, going way beyond her expected photographer duties. She was so much fun to talk to/ work with and helped make our day truly special. She catered to our every need (quirk) to customize our package to our specific day. I will forever be happy that I chose her to document my best day ever.

10/10, 5 stars, 100% would recommend Emily Broadbent Photography to anyone in need of a photographer...We love every single picture. And we can't stop looking at them! Her light and flawless style makes everyone look good, and even if you think you don't know what you're doing in front of a camera (like my husband and I), she walks you through everything and makes the best looking poses easy and natural! Don't hesitate, stop looking around, and book her now!

Emily was better than fantastic. She was so enthusiastic and knew exactly what poses would look best for us for our engagement photos and wedding photos. She’s very very hands on and wasn’t afraid to make us change poses or fix my hair or re-fluff my dress. She was like a ghost at the wedding, we don’t remember seeing her all the time, but she was always there getting the perfect shot. She was extremely professional and did such a good job!
