Emily and Jake met through mutual friends while students at Emory University in Atlanta. Now living in Chicago, they returned to Emily’s hometown in New Hampshire to treat their guests to an elegant celebration at her parent’s home. Tropical storm Danny let up just after the barn ceremony for outdoor formal photos.
I ask my associates to take a photo of the dress when they arrive no matter the location. We’ve had attics and storage rooms, and we can now add basement to the list. Love it.
Emily’s parents built this barn specifically for the wedding. The bright sunflowers and hanging stars added great splashes of color.
Beautiful reception details.
When editing these images, I was so struck by the light of the reception and how beautifully it played a role in the evening.

Congratulations, Emily and Jake!! J enjoyed documenting your big day, and meeting so many of your wonderful relatives and friends (including emilie inc. couple Erin and Brett!)!!

The Importance of Building an Enviable Brand

Since the advent of digital and the influx of new photographers into our industry, it’s vital to distinguish yourself and your business from the pack. Build a strong brand that inspires loyalty and trust in your current clients and provides a level of familiarity and comfort to help to draw in potential customers. Your brand should increase your prominence in the marketplace and be consistent across your communications. Your brand should allow you to market yourself virally… to keep your name on the tips of the tongues of those that can refer you. Using simple techniques to get your name in front of your supporters to reinforce your brand can help differentiate your business from others in your marketplace.
For four years, J consulted with hundreds of photography studios while working for Pictage as an account representative. Currently, J works for liveBooks, the industry leader in websites for visual professionals and shoots for emilie inc. Together, they live and work in Portland, Maine.
